Bush Radio volunteers Toast Coetzer, Erns Grundling and Clive E Smith (co-hosts of The Unhappy Hour, Sundays 6-8 pm) are also involved in a small literary zine called Ons Klyntji. They are currently collecting fresh contributions for their next issue, due to be distributed at Oppikoppi music fest in August 2013, where they will also represent Bush Radio as DJs.
All of us at Bush Radio would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Jade Roux who passed away on Saturday. Jade was a member of the Bush Radio Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) project and actively partcipated in the Media Kidocracy Konfrences (MKK) for the past few years.
A big thank you to the 43 biker clubs that accepted invitations to co-host the Biker Show for the past year. The Biker Show is now commanding 15% of the Bush Radio overall listeners – A major achievement for a radio program that only hits the airwaves once a week for 3 hours. (Saturdays 2pm – 5pm on 89.5FM or via www.bushradio.co.za nationally)
Yesterday as part of our regular Wednesday staff development session, Bush Radio members went to Parliament to check out the Camp-Out for Openess and take part in the teach-in that was running at that time.
