Giving back to the elders

Host of Bush Radio’s breakfast programme “The Breakfast Rush”, Yuzriq Meyer represented Bush Radio at the annual Woodstock SAPS Christmas lunch for senior citizens at the Woodstock Town Hall. We asked him to share some of the experience on this blog…

On Thursday, 17th of November 2016 the Woodstock SAPS (South African Police Service) in collaboration with the City of Cape Town hosted the annual Christmas lunch for the elderly of Woodstock & its surrounding areas.

This event takes place every year, where the police from the Woodstock area get together to throw an event all aimed at giving back to the old folks and allowing them to come out for not only a really nice lunch but also for a host of performances by influential artists, musicians and rappers from around Cape Town.

This really great initiative was nothing short of a success as the elderly, danced, laughed and had the real time of their lives.

It was a huge honour being part of such an extraordinary event.

Even more so, seeing the faces of my grandmother, your grandmother and our grandfathers faces light up with life as the artists tirelessly entertained them with sheer passion.

May next year be as successful as this and may we all do our little to give back to our communities as best we can.

We are one

As part of the regular staff development sessions at Bush Radio we tried finding out what this “getting fit” thing is all about.

Over the years we’ve done – yoga, how to change a car tire, the internal combustion engine, soldering, signal path etc but this was a special challenge.

The Bush team was hosted by James Owen who put us through our paces. If you want more information on the 360 Specialised Training programme contact James on 074 44 45087.

It’s time for another dose of Jitsenic

26/07/2012

Fresh from his show in Grahamstown, Cape Town musician Jitsvinger presents Jitsenic at the District Six Museum on Friday 27 July, 2012.  

Jitsenic, Jitsvinger’s latest formula combines his rhyme styles and guitar-playing with the sample triggering, finger-drumming techniques of Arsenic (Gary Erfort).

The upcoming Jitsenic performance will introduce its newest member, Andre Hope, who will be completing the ‘sound-system’ by adding savvy bass grooves to the mix. Consisting of two sets, the show features Jitsvinger who will be switching moods from acoustic guitar and poetry to electric guitar.  Those who know Jitsvinger’s repertoire can look forward to hearing familiar classics such as ‘Smile’ and ‘Doenit’ from his debut album ‘Skeletsleutel’,  as well as new unreleased tracks he has been working on with Arsenic.

Jitsvinger mastered his art form through successful projects like Khoi Khollektiv, Rogue State of Mind and the critically-acclaimed Afrikaaps, which earned various awards and rave reviews, both locally and internationally.  All of these projects experimented with different modes of expression from storytelling to word-play. In this spirit, Jitsenic features a fusion where old meets new South African sounds, with the audience being taken on an artistic, lyrical, and music journey.

Tickets cost is R60 and available from Thursday 19 July, 2012, at the District Six Museum.
