While it seemed like the whole of South Africa was putting the final preparations together for the FIFA Soccer World Cup final – and a few warned us about the impact of hosting this eventBush Radio was organising an evening of music and comedy for the Bush Radio / Vodacom Community Funny Festival.

Everyone was captivated by the performances

After weeks of careful planning, sound checks, rehearsals and running around it all came together on the evening of July 9 at the Joseph Stone Auditorium in Athlone.

Dyllan and Victor hosted the first part of the evening

Excited listeners and supporters arrived early to wait for the doors to open at 5pm.

Denisia kept things moving backstage

Shiraaz Ismail was tasked to head the Bush Radio team which included Denisia Adams, Victor Jay, Sive Msolo, Dyllan Canterbury, Brenda Leonard, Elroy Williams, Belinda Sepkit, Sharon Salies and Adrian Louw.

Why Wednesdays makes everyone Mal

03/03/2010
Wednesdays are becoming popular for not only for its Maak Victor Mal slot but also for its general craziness. This morning was nothing unusual for the team but we thought we would share some of the happenings in studio with you.

Victor and ZDF's Ulrike Eichnin going through shot sets

Today the Breakfast team were joined by Stan1 for an interview and performance promoting his new single as well as Taxi Violence who trekked in for the Maak Victor Mal segment and played their track , Devil ‘n Pistol live.

 

The guys were also joined by Leole-Ann Francis from the Cape Town Festival and then Victor and Shiraaz received a surprise call from Zaki Ibrahim who is performing at the festival.

Capturing all this madness unique to the breakfast show was Ulrike Eichin from Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF) – a public-service German television channel, who along with other colleagues are working on a unique documentary covering the lives of South African’s in a 24 hour cycle.

Fun times in Heideveld

18/01/2010

Check out the slide show of the outside broadcast that was held in Heideveld this past Saturday (16 January 2010). The ob was part of Bush Radio’s way of saying thank you to listener and supporter Cassiem “Die Bossie” Jumat who helped raise awareness and pledges for the work of Bush Radio.

Issues in Heideveld were highlighted through interviews with soccer clubs and youth development projects.

Lots of Bush Radio listeners came through to support the event as well as a film crew from Sweden who are working on a documentary in Cape Town. A special thanks to Superspar Gugulethu Square for supplying freshments for the children in the neighbourhood.

Shaz’s attempt at the national anthem

17/11/2009

Over the past few days there has been lots of fuss made over how Ras Dumisani sang the national anthem at the opening of a rugby match between South Africa and France.

Shiraaz Ismail of the breakfast show, with a little coaching from Victor J decided to give it a try live on air. He made fewer mistakes that Ras Dumisani, but you be the judge.

The actual words to our anthem:

Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika (God Bless Africa)

Maluphakanyisw’ uphondo lwayo, (Raise high Her glory)

Yizwa imithandazo yethu, (Hear our Prayers)

Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo (God bless us, we her children)

Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso, (God protect our nation)

O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho, (End all wars and tribulations)

O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso, (Protect us, protect our nation)

Setjhaba sa South Afrika – South Afrika. (Our nation South Africa – South Africa)

Uit die blou van onse hemel, (Ringing out from our blue heavens)

Uit die diepte van ons see, (From the depth of our seas)

Oor ons ewige gebergtes, (Over our everlasting mountains)

Waar die kranse antwoord gee, (Where the echoing crags resound)

Sounds the call to come together, And united we shall stand, Let us live and strive for freedom,

In South Africa our land.
