Welcome to the Sell Your Soul show

23/11/2016


It has been a tough year for all of us and with the festive season upon us it is only getting tougher. We at Bush Radio are encouraging all our listeners to watch their spending by supporting International Buy Nothing Day 2016.

Don’t fall for excessive consumerism. Think before spending.

Pop music is aspirin and the Blues are vitamins

Tune into Bush Radio via 89.5FM or online this Sunday (16 October 2016) at 8pm as we celebrate 20 years of Blues in the Bush with Dr Ian Bell.

With its roots firmly in African soil, yet germinating in a far continent in conditions of slavery and extreme hardship, the Blues has flowered and grown over generations to be the single greatest influence in modern popular music. Dr Bell (yes a real medical professional) has an extensive collection of rare blues albums and plays the music, as well as providing detailed information about the evolution of blues, the social and cultural contexts of the music, and information about individual tracks.

Since October 1996, a tasty two hours of the best of The Blues, along with something of its history, origin, development, sociology and biography, is prescribed every Sunday evening  as immunisation against the rest of the week!

Thank you for the continued support

Goodbye Victor J #RIP

02/05/2016

victor jantjies rip

The trainees, volunteers and staff of Bush Radio are saddened to announce the passing of our colleague and friend, Victor Jantjies.

We were informed early this morning by his family that Victor passed away in his sleep

We are unable to find the words right now to express the loss we feel of this wonderful person who brought light to station.

Victor joined Bush Radio in 1996 as a trainee from a media project and worked in various areas in the station. He is best remembered by listeners as the voice of the Breakfast Rush and Morning Cruise but he also served in various areas “behind the scenes”

Most recently Victor was standing in on the Morning Cruise and responsible for technical and music at the station.

We will keep listeners and friends updated to developments via this blog and our Bush Radio facebook groups.

Please feel free to share you memories of Victor here.

Step It Up for Gender Equality

07/03/2016

international women's day copyThe 8th of March 2016 marks International Women’s Day and to help celebrate the day, the women involved in Bush Radio (past and present) will be taking to the airwaves from 6am to 8pm to highlight the work, struggles and achievements of women.

Current women presenters on Bush Radio will be on air during the day and some new and old voices will be back on the airwaves. The male presenters will take a behind-the-scenes role by producing for some of the shows so that every woman currently working at the station – from those in admin, household, sales and reception – will take to the airwaves.

Even though it is not unusual for the Bush Radio airwaves to be filled with women’s voices, it was proposed that the station step it up for the day and swop around presenters for the day (eg: Lazola Solani who hosts the magazine programme Sakhisizwe will host the Breakfast Rush and our managing director, Brenda Leonard, will take on Sakhisizwe with former Bushnews editor, Lusanda Bill).

Stay tuned for the special The Women Who Built Bush Radio, hosted by Juanita Williams, AllAfrica.com managing editor (former Bush Radio news editor, trainer and gender issues programme producer and presenter). This programme will look back and speak with some of the women who have fought to free the airwaves and media in South Africa, and pay tribute to their contributions.

International Women’s Day will end with an outside broadcast from a City Of Cape Town Social Development, Subcouncil 9 and Early Childhood Development event in Khayelitsha.

The event will focus on awareness raising on issues that are pertinent to women, like eradicating domestic violence and entrepreneurship. The programme will also include guest speakers such as the Mayoral committee member for Social Development and Early childhood development, Suzette Little, and Minister of Small Business Development Lindiwe Zulu.

Programme Lineup:

07h00 – 09h00 – The Breakfast Rush: Lazola Solani

09h00 – 12h00 – The Morning Cruise: Natasha Siqaza

12h00 – 14h00 – Sakhisizwe: Brenda Leonard and Lazola Solani

14h00 – 16h00 – Backchat: Gabebah Abdullah and Jasnine Roberts

16h00 – 17h00 – Everyday People: Kholeka Ntozini, Nombelelo Xakatha and Zimasa Mzamo

17h00 – 18h00 – The Women who built Bush Radio – Juanita Williams + guests

18h00 – 20h00 – Outside Broadcast from International Women’s day event from Khayelitsha

Tune in via 89.5FM in Cape Town or worldwide via www.bushradio.co.za
