Who said mid-morning radio is only for background music?

29/02/2012

Just in case you didn’t notice, what with all the confusion caused by 2012 being a leap year, tomorrow is the 1st of March and this brings a programming change for us at Bush Radio 89.5FM. For the past few months Ruth Molteno (from The Dank!sh) has been holding down the fort while we develop a new team to run the Morning Cruise from 9am – 12pm.

We are pleased to announce that starting on the first of the month, Victor J, Somie and Winslow will lead a new-look Morning Cruise on 89.5FM.

The Morning Cruise is your mid-morning dose of that extra special something you need to jump-start your day. The team will still bring you daily inspiration, interviews, did-you-know facts, the important jobshop, career tips, topic of the day and more – but now with triple madness!

Who said mid-morning radio is only for background music and should be boring?

Some more info on the team:

Victor Jantjies

Returns to the Mother of Community Radio and brings his experience of hosting the breakfast show on 89.5FM (remember that show?) and will guide the team as their skills develop.

Chisomebi “Somie” Emma-Iwuoha

Somie is a digital junkie with a love for social media and all things music-related. This Nigerian native has been living in Cape Town for the past 11 years and has adopted the lifestyle and culture of the city – including Afrikaans!

Winslow Schalkwyk

Winslow is a performance poet and creative-writing facilitator who lives in Ravensmead. He has performed at various venues in Cape Town and has a passion for words and sound – and he’s ready to use the power held by these elements.

17/11/2011

For the past three months, we have been running our climate change – COP17 campaign, which consists of community dialogues, training for broadcasters and running a news desk during COP17.

In the past two weeks (7 – 18 November) our offices have reverberated with the words COP17 and climate change – training and equipping broadcasters to demystify the issues of climate change and COP17, and enabling them to engage in debates at their stations.

Participants getting to grips with the issues

Bush Radio, in partnership with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, developed a training course which brought together radio journalists from throughout South Africa. With the training, the broadcasters will be able to highlight the issues of climate change and translate these issues to their various communities in a clear and efficient way. In order to acheive this, briefings were held with various stakeholders in the area of climate change – these included the public, scientists, activists, civil society, politicians, international broadcasters and the United Nations. The course also upgraded their production and journalism skills.

Two participants will also be selected to form part of the Bush Radio newsteam that will be heading to the conference to cover it for South African radio stations as well as the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC)

What some of the participants felt about the training:

“The workshop has opened my mind by giving me a better understanding of climate change and COP17. I feel like a new encyclopaedia filled with more knowledge than Google”.  – Tashneem Abrahams – VOC

Team building through dance

“The two weeks of being in Cape Town has really flown by quickly. The staff at Bush Radio has been very friendly, but most of all, the entire workshop has been great and the facilitator was great too. Thank you so much to everyone who has made this possible.”  –Xolelwa Mvumvu – Motheo FM

“Having been part of this 2 weeks climate change workshop has been a great experience. Meeting up with journalists from other provinces and having fun while learning was definitely the cherry on top.” –  Bongani Gina – uMgungundlovu Community Radio KZN

Bringing you the Ish…TheDank!sh

05/08/2011

Tune into Bush Radio 89.5FM this Saturday the 6th of August 2011 at 6pm when we launch a new programme on Africa’s pioneering community radio station.

We are proud to launch TheDank!sh radio show.

So who are they?

Young, fresh and opinionated,  cutting edge mix of radio journalists, street artists, TV camera people and other industry professionals. This dynamic and well travelled team have collaborated with fresh young people from around the world who aim to always give you TheDank!sh

A few dankish examples of what they have in store for you are music reviews by Hip-hop producer Arsenic (music with a maniac). We’ll also be tracking the latest in street style developments from dank rides to fashion and all the dankish in between.

These are just a few examples of what’s to come.

Here’s what the group has to say about why they are doing what they do:

“Are you bored of all the same old mediocre bollocks you find on the rest of the internet (and now radio)? Well so are we! We aim to inform, challenge, engage and inspire all out there to be thinkers, encouraging your opinions and participation in our quest to find the dankist things out there!”

So tune into 89.5 FM or online via www.bushradio.co.za on Saturday, 6 August at 6pm.
