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.

Johnny Issel: Everything that was noble in the Struggle

24/01/2011


Bush Radio is joining many organisations and individuals in paying tribute to the memory of Johnny Issel (born 17 August 1946 – 23 January 2011) who passed away on Sunday the 23rd January 2011.

We will be airing a discussion with Mr Issel tonight 24 January 2011 at 8pm on 89.5 FM.

A mentor to many, Mr Issel was one of the greatest organisers in our struggle against apartheid; a teacher, a student activist, a trade union and community organiser, one of the founders of Grassroots and the United Democratic Front (UDF).

We feel the words of those closest to him can best summarise what he meant to those that knew him.
