Who says listening can’t be visual

26/04/2012

For the past few months on Facebook, dedicated Bush Radio Sensual Sundays listener Cassiem Jacobs (better known as Boeta C) has been making promo posters for the show in his spare time. We thought we would showcase some of his work on this blog.

Born and raised in Worcester he matriculated at Esselenpark Senior in Worcester and went to Pentech (now CPUT) to study architectural draughtmanship and later studied Information Technology in Houtbay. He now works at Goudini Spa as the assistant technical manager.

Boeta C listens to Bush Radio 89.5FM via our webstream on his Blackberry and PC.

More voice for your moola – @Bushradio and @Mxit

20/04/2012

In our continuous effort to engage with the communities we serve and make that interaction as easy – and cost effective- as possible, Bush Radio, Africa’s pioneering community radio station project, and Mxit, Africa’s largest mobile social network, have joined forces to provide listeners with a way to send messages to the station at 2 moola (that’s two cents!) per message.

According to Bush Radio Programme Integrator Adrian Louw: “Giving listeners another platform to interact with the station serves to fulfill our license conditions by making it easier for our audience to air their views and opinions.”

The new service combines Mxit‘s over 50 million registered users, and about 40 000 new registrations a day, and Bush Radio’s ability to be heard not only in Cape Town on 89.5FM, but nationally and internationally on mobile phones via its online stream.

Mxit Spokesperson Sphiwe T. Mahlangu says; “We are very happy to provide this solution to Bush Radio for all listeners of Bush Radio that are already on Mxit and the Mxit community that will have the opportunity engage with Bush Radio on this application.”

The station is confident that it will take radio to a new level of interaction and continue to be the leading community radio station on the continent.

Listeners who currently use Mxit will now be able to add Bush Radio on Mxit by going to Tradepost > Entertainment > Radio > Bush Radio.

You will then be able to find Bush Radio under Apps and send us a message whenever you like.

Get involved and join the conversation!

To download Mxit, go to m.mxit.com on your cellphone and follow the prompts.

Keeping the youth moving

During the June school holidays, Bush Radio was hard at work with a group of young people in Mitchells Plain from the Youth Media Movement (YMM).

Our former trainee news editor, Nadia Samie who just returned from the University of Southern Illinois in the United States where she completed her Masters in Professional Media and Media Management, conducted three intensive week long training sessions based at Glendale High School and at our studios in Salt River.

The YMM asked Bush Radio to provide media and radio training for the young people due to our experience of training young people in media skills through our Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) project.

We feel that it is essential for all young people to be exposed to this kind of training as media surrounds everyone, shaping their views on issues and their understanding of world events, from TV to radio, and newspapers to using Facebook and Twitter.

This type of training is essential to show young people how to produce media, and it also equips them with the skills to understand and interpret the media messages bombarding them every day.

For most of the young people, this was their first interaction with media production and judging from their enthusiasm, it won’t be their last.

Besides discussing the power and influence of the media, part of the course also entailed making public service announcements (PSAs).

When the participants heard that the Programme Integrator gave approval for their PSAs to be played on air, students excitedly called their parents saying, “ek gaan op die radio wees, sit dit op 89.5fm”.

Looking back, marching forward
