Together we can dream and do! #Imagine


People ask, why does Bush Radio play that song written by John Lennon* and Yoko Ono called Imagine every day?

The answer is pretty simple.

Each day we want you to imagine a better world.

A world of peace, in our homes, in our communities and in our country.

Each day we want you to imagine a world of equality, where no- one is discriminated against because of their religion, gender, age, sexual orientation or beliefs.

A world where we build up each other and not destroy.

A world of hope.

But also a world where each of us help and build towards making this a reality.

To paraphrase the song:

You may say we’re a dreamers

But we’re not the only ones

We hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will be as one”

*The 8th December is the anniversary the day John Lennon was killed.

Give Peace a Chance


The 21st of September marks the International Day of Peace. It is a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

In 2003 Bush Radio started its “Bush against War” campaign, at the time the United States government and its allies issued an ultimatum to Iraq around the issue of weapons of mass destruction. Bush Radio held various protests and “pavement broadcasts” encouraging a peaceful resolution. Unfortunately what is now known as the “Iraq Conflict” is still ongoing.

We at Bush Radio continue to encourage peaceful resolutions, but we can’t just hope, we encourage all listeners and supporters to “Listen, engage and do!” around all conflicts.

*The audio in the clip is taken from our original ultimatum in 2003 – the announcement is voiced by the late Zane Ibrahim and the remixed version of the anti-war song – Give peace a chance by John Lennon, features the voices of Ready D, Godessa and the young people from our Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW)

*The conflict is also known as the War in Iraq, the Occupation of Iraq, the Second Gulf War, and Gulf War II. The period of the war lasting from 2003 to 2010 was referred to as Operation Iraqi Freedom by the United States military.


What are they doing now? – (Foreign interns)


We contacted a few of our former foreign interns to give us an update on what they have been up to after they left Bush Radio. (click on the picture below to see their stories)
