Africa's oldest community radio station launches funding campaign
Bush Radio 89.5fm, Africa's oldest community radio station has embarked on a campaign to help fundraise for the station.
As a non-profit community radio station which services the needs of the various communities on the Cape Flats and surrounds, Bush Radio as been broadcasting legally since the 9th August 1995. Prior to that the little station in the "mother city" took on the apartheid regime by pirating and pushing for freedom of the airwaves in South Africa.
Due to its actions the station paved the way for the establishment of community radio in South Africa and the establishment of the the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) which evolved into the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA).
