Chad Saaiman shot

Chad Saaiman on the Breakfast Show in February 2011

We learnt with great shock early this morning that musician Chad Saaiman, was shot in an alleged hijacking last night in Johannesburg.

Chad’s brother Lee, confirmed the shooting in an interview with the Breakfast Team this morning. (See Bushradionews)

Our thoughts are with Chad and his family as we wish him a speedy recovery.

Chad assisted Bush Radio with various events and projects.

A Bush-e moment

Faces for Radio: E-TV's Lester Kiewit (left) and Bush Radio's Victor J (right)

Bush Radio 89.5 FM’s Breakfast Team was joined by ETV‘s Lester Kiewit this morning to co-host the morning drive time show with Victor J.

We found out that the television journalist enjoys listening to the Breakfast Show (via Twitter) and we felt it was only right that he had an opportunity to join the craziness in the studio.

Dreadlock brothers: Lester Kiewit looks on while Chad Saaiman explains his hairstyle

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for Victor J, Chad Saaiman joined them in the studio.

They discussed Saaiman’s new CD The Flight but – because the guest presenter and musician share a hairdresser – the conversation turned to their signature dreadlocks! And the speed at which Bush Radio gets up video, audio and pictures.

MKK 2009 presents a bright future

22/12/2009

Putting MKK 2009 together was not without its challenges, like others we too have suffered due to the economic meltdown.

 We are proud to say that the 10th Media Kidocracy Konference (MKK 2009) which ran from the 14th to the 18th December 2009 was a resounding success.

On the final day the young delegates (12 – 18 years old) presented their productions in a four hour closing ceremony which included video, online, graffiti and radio presentations.

 The closing ceremony also included performances by young Capetonian talent such as Shaz & B, Apple and Cinnamon and Grand Alliance.

The photographers have captured the contrast between the beauty of our natural landscape and the filth that soils it.

The television group challenged us to re-examine our so-called natural ways of being as men and women with respect to violence within the home.

The graffiti group showed through their piece that although we may differ linguistically and/or culturally, we can live in harmony.

The online and radio groups have spread the word that violence is not and never will be an option, be it violence inflicted by others through forced child labour or self-inflicted violence in the form of substance abuse.
