Start your engines – The Biker Show on 89.5FM

17/05/2012

The first radio show produced by bikers – presented by bikers – owned by bikers – for bikers and every other road user – launching on Africa’s pioneering community radio station, Bush Radio.

The Biker Show on Bush Radio 89.5fm in Cape Town – launching Saturday the 2nd June 2012 at 3pm – available via internet / mobile phone across the world) will have something for everyone – those to whom biking is a hobby; others who see it as a lifestyle and for those who believe biking is life itself!

This two-hour show will have weekly features on road safety, featured bike of the week; club of the week; general biker news; special guests and will strive to be a show with no holy cows – if it needs to be aired for debate and transparent discussion, it will be dealt with on The Biker Show.

It’s not a talk or a music show – it’s going to be a crazy, funky, zany, fun, great show filled with music, biker camaraderie, dedications, an SMS line (32158) or via Mxit, and club activities advertised for free!

The show will have three anchor presenters – all bikers affiliated to clubs in Cape Town. If a club is selected for club of the week, the in-studio representative will be the guest presenter for that particular show. Feature segments like Bike of the Week; Bike Safety etc will be presented by a specialist guest presenter that is skilled and knowledgeable about the particular subject.

Apart from tuning in via conventional radio (89.5FM in Cape Town), you can tune in via Internet audio-stream, Blackberry, Raspberry and any other berry. And if you miss the broadcast of The Biker Show it will be available to download.

The show and its presenters will be available for live outside broadcast from club day jols and rallies (at a fee). Your ideas, opinions and input for the show are welcome. Special inaugural advertising rates (dirt cheap). Want to sell or buy a bike; looking for spares – we will broadcast it.

Mail Trevor with your club activities; contact details and any questions or ideas you may want to share.

For advertising and promotional consideration contact Isherene via e-mail or on 021 448 5450.

More voice for your moola – @Bushradio and @Mxit

20/04/2012

In our continuous effort to engage with the communities we serve and make that interaction as easy – and cost effective- as possible, Bush Radio, Africa’s pioneering community radio station project, and Mxit, Africa’s largest mobile social network, have joined forces to provide listeners with a way to send messages to the station at 2 moola (that’s two cents!) per message.

According to Bush Radio Programme Integrator Adrian Louw: “Giving listeners another platform to interact with the station serves to fulfill our license conditions by making it easier for our audience to air their views and opinions.”

The new service combines Mxit‘s over 50 million registered users, and about 40 000 new registrations a day, and Bush Radio’s ability to be heard not only in Cape Town on 89.5FM, but nationally and internationally on mobile phones via its online stream.

Mxit Spokesperson Sphiwe T. Mahlangu says; “We are very happy to provide this solution to Bush Radio for all listeners of Bush Radio that are already on Mxit and the Mxit community that will have the opportunity engage with Bush Radio on this application.”

The station is confident that it will take radio to a new level of interaction and continue to be the leading community radio station on the continent.

Listeners who currently use Mxit will now be able to add Bush Radio on Mxit by going to Tradepost > Entertainment > Radio > Bush Radio.

You will then be able to find Bush Radio under Apps and send us a message whenever you like.

Get involved and join the conversation!

To download Mxit, go to m.mxit.com on your cellphone and follow the prompts.

Time to serve up a new breakfast team

06/05/2011

Bhavna Singh, Monde Kapa and Dennis Kofi

We thought it was time to make Cape Town’s airwaves interesting again!

Click here to listen to the promo

Bush Radio is pleased to announce that we have two new members on our breakfast team – and they’re starting stiptelik at 6am on Monday, May 9.

Monde Kapa: familiar for his work on Bush Radio, a few stints at regional and national radio stations, television and commercials (see Monde’s CV). Monde returns to Cape Town airwaves and our online/mobile radio audience as the host of the energetic and dynamic Bush Radio breakfast show.

Monde will be giving back to the station which has introduced many of the radio and television personalities you now see in South Africa.

His role will be to ensure that the Breakfast Show continues to deliver the best and most real radio Cape Town has to offer.

Bhavna Singh: who may be familiar to most through her work on South Africa’s first 24-hour news channel, as well as her print and online work, will join Monde in the studio.

Bhavna describes herself as Durbanite-turned-Joburger finding her way in the Cape on her blog, and what better way for her to experience the Mother City than through the Mother of Community Radio in Africa.

The youngest member of the team is Dennis Kofi – affectionately known in the office as Dennis the Menace. Bush Radio is giving this young buck a taste of media and also readying the world for him.

Other additions to the Breakfast Team will be announced over the course of the month, so stay tuned to 89.5 FM or visit www.bushradio.co.za.

In your ear and in your brain – worldwide

04/03/2011

We have decided to launch a new audio streaming option for listeners who prefer to listen to Bush Radio online.

You can listen to Bush Radio online since 2001 and all we have now done is improved the quality and also made it possible for you to choose how you want to listen to us.

So now, whether you have a Blackberry, I-phone, Windows Mobile or Nokia you can tune in from anywhere in the world on your cellphone!

The same is true if you prefer listening from your computer via; Windows Media Player, Flash Player, Winamp, RealPlayer or iTunes.

During the recent earthquakes in New Zealand being online showed its importance, when listeners made contact through Bush Radio’s internet broadcasts to send messages to their families in SA and in that country.

The main purpose of Bush Radio providing an online streaming service is to highlight issues from Cape Town to a global audience, and judging by the feedback we have been getting, it is working.

NetDynamix, the company which helped us install the new system provides direct technical support to you as a listener through bushradio@ndstream.net if you are struggling to listen to us online.
