In the days before the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) or the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) and licenses for community radio, Bush Radio did (and still does) what we termed field broadcasts – “broadcasts” using a PA and not connected to a transmitter from various areas in the Cape Flats.

This picture was taken at one of these field broadcasts from Nyanga Junction in 1994.

Heading down the rabbit hole – @Mxit #rabbithole2012

03/04/2012

On Sunday the 1st April 2012, Bush Radio broadcast from the Mxit 2.0 party at the Brenaissance Estate in Devon Valley.

The 9 hour broadcast highlighted the work of Mxit and specifically how communities can use the platform to engage and solve social challenges, but besides all the serious things the “Alice in Wonderland” themed event had gaming, fantastic bands, good food and exciting announcements.

One of these announcements was the appointment of Marlon Parker of RLabs – Reconstructed Living Lab (RLabs participated in MKK2010) to head up Mxit Reach.

Soon after World of Avatar founder, Alan Knott-Craig made the announcement from the main stage, Marlon was on-air with Dr Victor Davids giving listeners insight into how Mxit could be used to address social issues. (LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW – Click here)

Taking #SONA2012 to the people

While the parliamentary precinct was buzzing with journalists, politicians and celebrities (see the slideshow) last night waiting for the 2012 State of the Nation address (SONA2012), Bush Radio was at the Portlands Indoor Sports Centre in Mitchells Plain with members of the community, local politicians and activists. (listen to the audio below)

Bush Radio put together the special outside broadcast to get a sense of what the community was expecting and what they thought of President Jacob Zuma’s state of the nation address.

While the OB team was busy in Mitchells Plain the Bushradionews interns were at Parliament collecting sound and pictures of the event as well as generating analysis of the speech.

Some of the people who shared their views were during the outside broadcast in Mitchells Plain:

Louis Botha – Deputy Manager of GCIS in the Western Cape
Councillor Solomon Philander – Ward Councillor for ward 79 & Deputy Chairperson for the DA constituency, Mitchells Plain
Councillor Xolani Sotashe – Chief Whip of ANC in City of CT
Shahied Keet – Mitchells Plain Backyarddwellers and Resident’s Association
Rudy Kronenberg – Eastridge (Smarty town) Resident
Nafeesah – Resident
Michael Jacobs – Community Police Forum
Wayne McKay – local comedian and Bush Radio volunteer
Ismail Chotia – Universal Party

Getting down with the Villagers

24/10/2011

The Bush Radio team in Garden Village

On Sunday, October 23, 2011 we had an outside broadcast at the Garden Village Primary School. The idea behind the OB was to promote the upcoming Village Day when Garden Village celebrates its 89th birthday. The weather was sunny, allowing the Villagers to set up their braai stands and tables to enjoy themselves.

The residents of Garden Village were kept entertained by Bush Radio’s Three Musketeers; Roger Lewis (Sensual Sundays 12pm-2pm), Dr Victor (Jazz on Bush 2pm-4pm) and Calvin Peters (Flashback 4pm-6pm).

Rene Hendricks, Marketing Director of Garden Village Residents Association said, “Today is a count down for the upcoming event, as we will be celebrating 89years of Garden Village’s existence. This event is definitely a very good sign that if people were able to come to this one, then the actual event will definitely be a success.”

Mrs October, Principal at Garden Village Primary School said “Lot of things in the community revolve around the school and there is no recreation and development. Therefore, the school has all the facilities the community needs”.

The people of Garden Village looked like one big happy family, as everyone gathered around with their families and greeted each other with warm smiles.

Dancing, Braaing and Broadcasting in Garden Village

Maureen Robertson, a resident at Garden Village said, “This is a special day for me, I have never heard of Bush Radio before and I knew nothing about it; but here I am today at my old age enjoying my time with Bush Radio, meeting you people. This is really the best thing that has happened to me, thank you Bush Radio.”

Gabiba Dames, an elderly resident at Garden Village said, “It’s the first time I see this happen, and it’s evident before my eyes that it has brought everyone together; it is a good thing to keep the interaction between the young and old. This should be done more often.”

Why? Because we have to #16days

03/12/2010

The first 7 days of our outside broadcast marathon for 16 Day of Activism is complete but it wasn’t without hitches. First our only outside broadcast laptop crashed – a day before our campaign started – but thanks to CapeTown Tweeple who retweeted our call for help, Professor Johannes Cronje from CPUT donated his laptop.

Then one of our venues in Hanover Park had no functioning telephone line but the Auntie across the road stepped in and let us use her telephone line!

Unfortunately, our appeals and proposals to national, local government and corporates for support have gone unheeded.
