And justice for all ...
This week on the Club 9516/The Sound Kitchen, you’ll hear a “This I Believe” listener essay from Ugandan political activist Charles Ongole John. There’s great music, listener letters, and the quiz … don’t miss it!
We are reflecting on changes to our programming here at RFI English, and we want to hear from you! Write us and let us know what you like about our programmes, what you don’t like, what you would like to hear more of, less of, when you listen, how you listen … all your thoughts are welcome … and very important to us.
This week’s quiz question is about Sudan: the country this week held a major referendum. What’s it about? What’s at stake? What did the Sudanese vote on this past week?
You have until 21 February to send in your answer; the winners will be announced on the 27 February programme.
My dear listeners, it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day, and your loving musical dedications … send me your sweetheart’s name, and your musical choice for the day.
I’m still looking for you to crowd into the kitchen and cook with me … I want you to write and tell me about people in your community who are doing good things, for a regular feature on the Club 9516/Sound Kitchen about “ordinary” heroes – the people in your community who are trying to make the world a better place.
And I am still looking for your letters about the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you, or that you’ve seen … or, your favourite guilty pleasure – mine’s chocolate - or your favourite day-off thing to do. Share your proudest achievement with us all – and send in your musical requests and dedications, too.
And then the all-important recipes and proverbs: get ‘em in! As I’ve been telling you, we’re going to put together a Sound Kitchen listener cookbook, filled with your recipes - and your proverbs, too. We won’t put the book together for awhile, so there’s still time to be included. If you contribute, you will be the first to receive a Sound Kitchen Cookbook.
Later, we can use it as a prize for the quiz.
So, to your pens! Include a phone number, if you can. I’d like to call you and put you on-the-air – and send you an RFI CD. If you go on-the-air, you get a CD of music chosen by the RFI musical team – so don’t be shy!
Send your thoughts to me at:
or, of course, via “real” mail to:
Club 9516 / The Sound Kitchen

I look forward to hearing from you.
