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”.

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.

Keeping the youth moving

During the June school holidays, Bush Radio was hard at work with a group of young people in Mitchells Plain from the Youth Media Movement (YMM).

Our former trainee news editor, Nadia Samie who just returned from the University of Southern Illinois in the United States where she completed her Masters in Professional Media and Media Management, conducted three intensive week long training sessions based at Glendale High School and at our studios in Salt River.

The YMM asked Bush Radio to provide media and radio training for the young people due to our experience of training young people in media skills through our Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) project.

We feel that it is essential for all young people to be exposed to this kind of training as media surrounds everyone, shaping their views on issues and their understanding of world events, from TV to radio, and newspapers to using Facebook and Twitter.

This type of training is essential to show young people how to produce media, and it also equips them with the skills to understand and interpret the media messages bombarding them every day.

For most of the young people, this was their first interaction with media production and judging from their enthusiasm, it won’t be their last.

Besides discussing the power and influence of the media, part of the course also entailed making public service announcements (PSAs).

When the participants heard that the Programme Integrator gave approval for their PSAs to be played on air, students excitedly called their parents saying, “ek gaan op die radio wees, sit dit op 89.5fm”.
