Hamba Kahle Vincent Kolbe

04/09/2010

One of the original trustees of Bush Radio 89.5 FM, activist, librarian and musician Vincent Kolbe passed away on Friday the 3 September 2010.

Vincent was instrumental in helping to form the Bush Radio community radio station project and guide it through one of the most challenging periods in the birth of community radio in South Africa.

His contribution to give all the people of South Africa a voice through community radio should never be forgotten and we at Bush Radio have always felt his presence; from his calls to the station just to chat or share programme ideas.

Vince, thank you – we will miss you.

This Saturday the 16 January 2010 , from 10h00 – 12h00, the Bush Radio 89.5 FM team will be broadcasting from our listener Cassiem “Die Bossie” Jumat’s house in Heideveld on the Cape Flats.

Cassiem who is better known to Bush Radio listeners as “Die Bossie” is a regular on the Breakfast Show and often participates in Bush Radio activities, he also helps to improve his community by raising funds and donations to schools and feeding schemes etc.

When Bush Radio held its local pledge drive, “Bossie” got as many of his friends and family to make pledges in support of the station.

To show our appreciation we will broadcast from his home, with members of the Heideveld community. We will be discussing and highlighting issues in the community and having loads of fun!
