Sexy, sincere and playful – The Salon



Bush Radio’s new programme; The Salon is a sexy, sincere and playful hangout session between three friends that discuss the Queer Capetonian experience. Moving through LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) content, introducing new queer voices that laugh, play and get serious about difficult topics to broaden the perspectives that restrict the human rights of LGBTI community with compassion and acceptance.

We are hoping the audience includes everyone within the LGBTI community as well as those that stand outside of it with curiosity or disapproval.

The programme is designed to break down stereotypes and negative ideas about the LGBTI community, and aims to shatter negative misconceptions by including those that have them into its audience. There is no us vs. them, rather a movement towards an us, that is all inclusive regardless of sexual orientation.

The Salon is hosted by Myles Heneke, Sarah Summers and Sizo Mahlangu.

Tune into The Salon, Wednesdays from 8pm on 89.5FM or via

For more information on The Salon or any other programmes on 89,5FM drop an mail to the Programme Integrator

Let’s get physical (Video)


As part of the regular staff development sessions at Bush Radio we tried finding out what this “getting fit” thing is all about.

Over the years we’ve done – yoga, how to change a car tire, the internal combustion engine, soldering, signal path etc but this was a special challenge.

The Bush team was hosted by James Owen who put us through our paces. If you want more information on the 360 Specialised Training programme contact James on 074 44 45087.

1 retro rewind promo copy

This Sunday on Bush Radio 89.5fm we launch two music programmes:

Retro-Rewind (10h00 – 12h00) hosted by Shiraz “Cazzman” Ramjee and The Love Booth (12h00 – 14h00) hosted by Sive Msolo (former Breakfast Rush and Everyday People).

Both hosts are no strangers to Bush Radio listeners; Shiraz helped the late Roger Lewis with the programme Sensual Sundays and Sive co-hosted the Breakfast Rush and Everyday People.

According to the Programme Integrator Adrian Louw, the addition of these two shows is “only the start of exciting changes that Bush Radio will implement as the station celebrates 18 years on air”.

1 love booth promo copy
Retro-Rewind will be spinning all the forgotten club classics ranging from the late 70s to late 90s. The first half of the show will concentrate on jazz and slow jams. The second half is more uptempo, playing disco classics that promise to make you get up and move. As the name says, we’ll be taking you back… to your school days, your first kiss, or maybe even your first broken heart.

The Love Booth will give you the best of Rhythm and Blues, mixing the new with the old. With an album of the week feature, artist features and your song of the week – The Love Booth is where lovers meet.
