RIP – Randall Titus

11/03/2014

randall titusWe at Bush Radio are saddened to hear about the the passing of our former volunteer, Randall Titus.

Just after Bush Radio 89.5FM officially went on air in 1995, Randall and another volunteer Robert Moult initiated our first sports programme which was broadcast on Saturday afternoons.

Randall had a passion for local sport and brought this passion into the studio where he shared his knowledge and enthusiasm with all the Bush Radio listeners.

According to a press statement issued by Professor Brian O’ Connell, University of the Western Cape rector and vice chancellor, Randall was also a member of the University Council and served on various committees. We believe this is a true testament to the passion Randall had for the communities of the Western Cape.

Recently he also had meetings with Bush Radio to discuss various future projects.

We wish to send our condolences to the Titus family, and his colleagues and friends.

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.
