Bush Radio Managing Director, Brenda Leonard giving Cornerstone Institute CEO, Noel Daniels some in studio tips and tricks while Mkhuseli Veto looks on

Bush Radio 89.5FM in partnership with the Cornerstone Institute will this week (Thursday, 7 October 2021 from 7pm)  launch two new programmes.

The first is the Cornerstone Critical Dialogues and the second is Community Champions.

Cornerstone Critical Dialogues which starts at 7pm, will feature some of South Africa’s most influential thinkers, activists, performing artists and business people to debate the topics that matter most for society. Journalist Ryan Fortune will lead this collaborative project – a live radio show and podcast on Bush Radio and other platforms – is a direct offshoot (and next logical evolution) of the popular Cornerstone Critical Dialogues series.

Community Champions at 9pm  is where Noel Daniels, CEO of the Cornerstone Institute, will be chatting with one community champion, social or cultural activist, who may not always get the attention they deserve in the mainstream media. Noel will take us on a journey, exploring the world of leaders of non-profit organisations, social entrepreneurs, ground breakers and doers who are making a difference in their communities. They all have one thing in common – they are the people who play it forward.

The SpeakUp on Bush facilitates uncomfortable conversations that takes centre stage in driving the need for behavioural change and healing in society

RUNNING TRACK is a magazine show that’s all about running – road, trail, cross country, track & field, leisure, for fun, wellness including walking as a sport and leisure. and much more – exclusively dedicated to news and interest w.r.t all forms of running and walking.

All productions are developed and produced by people with relatively no broadcasting experience under the guidance of Bush Radio. Speak Up have done three productions to date and Running Track, one. Volunteers of both production crews responded to an Expression of Interest invitation published on FB

The productions are three-hour live shows broadcasted across the the Bush Radio 89.FM footprint in the Western Cape and globally via live audio-streaming, FB Live, other media networks including a Podcast postal.

All productions are individually broadcasted live on a selected Wednesday of each month from 7pm to 10pm. The first broadcast of COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW is provisionally scheduled for Wednesday 19 May.

Express your interest to join the COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW production crew or any other production as a presenter, content developer, social media integrator, audio engineering and studio production, by emailing your details to trevord0606@gmail.com with a short bio/expression of interests as to why you volunteering. All production and training sessions are online.

The only physical meet is on the evening of a broadcast live show. All COVID Safety protocols are applicable.

Experience is NOT a requirement. Passion and the willingness to be an agent for social change, is essential and a requirement. Radio production is fun!

Goodbye Sledge – Ebrahim Linneveldt RIP

08/01/2021

A gentle giant in Cape Town’s rich music and activist history has fallen.

Ebrahim Linneveldt, known to many as simply Sledge passed away earlier this week.

Amongst all his many activities Sledge was also a Bush Radio volunteer and used to host a Sunday programme called “Gister se Dinge” – A programme hosted by various other Cape Town legends like Vincent Kolbe, Joe Schaffers, Zelda Benjamin and more.

Host of Jazz on Bush, Dr Victor Davids recalled his memory of Sledge; “On 5 January 2000,at the welcoming function of Jazzathon held at West End, I was introduced to an amazing soul that was larger than life, while talking to Kenny Blake of the Super Heads Up Band, who gave  me a saxophone mouthpiece,  in a loud, but firm voice Sledge replied, what a great gift you are  exchanging  at the most Southern tip of Africa. That was the start of a friendship, that ended on 5 January 2021, when news broke of his passing. Sledge was an amazing gentleman, humble, caring, and had the ability to make one feel comfortable. He hosted a show Gister se Dinge, on Bush Radio which followed my show, with absolute passion and commitment. A big tree has fallen in the Cape Town entertainment world.”

Long-time Bush Radio Volunteer and entertainment industry professional, Calvin Peters said; “Sledge was larger than life and he had a phenomenal presence and aura that would literally fill a room.”

This week’s edition of Retro-Rewind (Sunday, 10 January 2021 from 10am to 2pm) will be dedicated to Sledge.

Send us your memories or stories about Sledge via whatsapp to 0618621065 or simply tune into 89.5fm or online.
