Listen to your heart – remembering Zane Ibrahim

23/06/2014

zane argus life 2014 zi

Today marks Zane Ibrahim’s 73rd birthday – we have been receiving many tributes to him via our Facebook group and from emails sent to the station from around the world since we announced his passing – including from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and local tabloid Die Son.

Bush Radio would also like to thank Voice of the Cape and Radio 786 for helping to spread the word of Zane’s passing.

Many people have been asking about a memorial for Zane and we are consulting with his family as to how to best celebrate Zane’s life and will post details once these have been finalised.

We thought we’d share a few of the messages that have come to us and the tributes paid to Zane via other media. Click on the pictures to view the original post.

The famed managing director of South Africa’s Bush Radio has died. The current program manager at Bush Radio tells Carol about Zane Ibrahim’s legacy.

 “We have only been free for a few years and look at what we have built here. The US has been free for 200 years and your laws still prevent people from building places like Bush Radio?”
