From campaigning against the apartheid government for a free and independent broadcasting authority, to being present on Cape Town's Grand Parade when Nelson Mandela addressed the nation as a free man, it has played an indelible part in the shaping of the history of the new South Africa.
Over the past three years, this pioneering radio station and training centre has been hit hard by the current economic climate, recently resulting in it having to re-evaluate its operations in order to remain sustainable and influential in this fast-changing and exciting environment. It is trying to raise R300 000 to pay rent, transmission and other running costs and needs concrete proposals by 31 August 2011.
Its legacy of assisting and being supported by communities all around the Cape is extensively documented on its website www.bushradio.co.za.
