Always be recording

Bush Radio volunteer, trainer and mentor Nigel Vermaas was spending some time in the Eastern Cape and ran into Rachel and Siya Kolisi.

He grabbed the opportunity to get Bush Radio an exclusive interview with the couple just after it had been announced that South Africa’s 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning captain would be joining a new club in France.

You can catch Nigel swopping his rugby boots for the best in jazz with Connected 2 Jazz every Tuesday from 8pm till 10pm on Bush Radio 89.5FM or online.

Listen to the interview with Rachel and Siya Kolisi:

Feeling the spirit

10/06/2010

Salt River and Woodstock was abuzz yesterday as many people in South Africa took to the street to blow their vuvuzelas.

Bush Radio shares some of the concerns around the impact of the World Cup on the country, especially in the areas of human trafficking, moving of the homeless, risks to children because of the long holiday, and sex work, etc.

We addressed some of these issues directly with FIFA‘s Jerome Valcke and the Local Organising Committee’s Danny Jordaan when they visited the station and have continued to interact directly with other NGOs and social movements on-air through our programmes (eg Sakhisizwe).

However, yesterday was a celebration and we couldn’t help catching the spirit, and like we say at Bush Radio: “Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle!”. Let’s celebrate what we can and work on what we must.

Catch Everyday People broadcasting live from the Swartklip Fanjol tomorrow from 15h00 Р19h00.
