As we celebrate the 19th National Women’s Day in South Africa,  Africa’s oldest community radio celebrates 19th year of broadcasting legally in a democratic South Africa.

Saturday at 2pm marks the time Bush Radio 89.5FM switched on with a license from the broadcasting authority. The first person on air was volunteer news co-ordinator, Juanita Williams (currently the managing director of AllAfrica Global Media) who read the first news bulletin followed by former station manager, Farah Moosa and a host of guests from various organisations.
