Bikers are born, not hatched

With Mother’s Day come and gone the Biker Show decided to have a special show in honour of mothers, on the 9 May 2015.

There was a mix of guest; bikers, those mom’s who had not yet braved two wheels, those not too keen to try and some of the presenters’ moms all of which made for an interesting show.

First order of business was the meet and greet between the moms, they were instructed to share stories about how they became mothers in biking and attempted to rub off their love of biking onto the mothers who had not been on a bike.

As mothers usually have a lot to say about everything, the minute they were told that they should be getting ready to go in studio, the silence in the room was deafening as the nerves crept in.

Once they gathered themselves, they were ready for the topics of the day “have you been on a bike?” Of course the biker mama’s were raving about what joy and freedom riding a bike provides. Then came the non-biker mama’s, the answers varied from one mom to the other.

Wilma de Klerk aka Wilma loves Biking, who recently became a mom rides an R1 Yamaha and said that it made her a better biker realising that as she rides she wants to come back to her child.

Kaylen Butler says that the preconceived notion of bikers as dangerous, reckless is not true. As she met bikers and found that they were the loveliest bunch of people. It’s just the bike that is a problem for her.

During the Biker Safety hour sponsored by Biker Basics, Lloyd Castle and regular guest on the show Officer Igshaan Dyson put the moms through their paces. The task was to convince the moms that biking can be and is safe.

Samantha Lamprecht, who has been in biking since she was in diapers, rides a Suzuki and commented on the issue of safety with regards to wearing the correct gear. “Whether you fall at 20 or 120, you are going to get eina”.

A big thank you to all the moms who came through and enjoyed our photo-booth, gifts and eats. You really are special to us at the Mother of Community Radio – Bush Radio.

The 14th Media Kidocracy kicks off #MKK2014

06/10/2014

mkk2014 copy

This year the 14th Media Kidocracy (kid+democracy) Konfrence which runs from th 6th to the 10th October 2014, is taking place in a historic year for media in South Africa. Bush Radio is celebrating 21 years since its first illegal broadcast, and 19 years of legal broadcasting. The National Community Radio Forum (NCRF) is also celebrating 21 years of existence, Bush Radio played a pivotal role in the establishment of the NCRF.

As South Africans, we are celebrating 20 years of democracy, as a country we are slowly emerging from a violent apartheid past to a nation celebrating its freedom.

The theme for MKK2014 is “Celebrating 20 years of democracy: learning from the past and celebrating the future.”

One of the foundations of this democracy we have built is freedom of expression.

This right allows everyone, including youth, to express themselves, whether this is verbally, artistically, scientifically or in any other way. However, this right does not come without responsibilities and we need to look at how we use our hard fought for freedom.

Freedom of expression is entrenched in the Media Kidocracy Konfrence as it allows participants to express the issues they raise through their media productions.

Bush Radio would like to thank the support of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FESmediaAfrica), the Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA), the Children’s Movement, and Whale Coast FM.

* Several of Bush Radio’s programmes will be broadcasting live from the event, these are: The Breakfast Rush (6-9am), The Morning Cruise (9am – 12pm), Sakhisizwe (12 – 2pm) and Everyday People (4 – 7pm).

** MKK2014 takes places at Wortelgat situated on the blanks of the Kleinriver estuary so besides the intensive media programme and discussion sessions participants will also enjoy the picturesque fynbos as well as archery, abseiling, and hiking.
