Background to Community House

Community House situated in Salt River, Cape Town is a unique and historic site of living heritage. It has always been known as a site of activism from around the mid 1980s which has shaped and continues to shape the socio-political landscape of its extended communities. The building itself houses NGO’s and Trade Unions as well as a labour and community history museum centered on the Trade Union Library and its archive. It presently houses twenty-four organizations that focus on labour research, popular education, gender advocacy, HIV/AIDS education, environmental issues, youth development, media production and union organization.

In the mid-1980s, anti-apartheid trade unions and civic and service organizations began searching for a new headquarters for their resistance campaign. The Western Province Council of Churches (WPCC) and an NGO, the Social Change Assistance Trust (SCAT) met this need. They purchased a dilapidated auto-workshop in Salt River, an area known for its textile and light metal factories and which marks the origins of industrial unions in the province.

The site was declared a provincial heritage site in 2010.

Another Cape Town legend passes – RIP Zayn Adam

24/02/2015

zayn adam 2012It was with great shock and sadness that Bush Radio yesterday learned of the passing of Cape Town legendary musician Zayn Adam – all of us would like to send our condolences to his family, friends and fellow musicians.

Below is a copy of the story filed by the Bushradionews yesterday.

Tributes pour in for legendary musician Zayn Adam

Cape Town music legend Zayn Adams died on Sunday at the age of 67-years-old.

He was born in 1947 in Salt River and when he was 15-years-old he joined the Golden City Dixes carnival show, however he was best known for leading the band called Pacific Express.

One of Adams song that he will be remembered for is Give a little love.

Bush Radio’s volunteer Doctor Victor Davids, said Adam was a soft spoke human being with a big heart and his passing leaves a massive vacuum.

Davids said “I don’t know how we going to replace that as recently he was on stage at the Baxter theatre on the 14 February valentine’s day performing and doing what he loves the most and what he does best is to give of himself to other people”.

“Rest in peace Zayn Adams your music will live in us forever” Davids added.

In the first week of the holidays Bush Radio hosted the UNESCO Empowering Local Radio with ICTs for Bush Radio and Radio Atlantis.

The second week saw the young people who are part of the Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) get further practical training.

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.
