Celebrations in Tahrir Square

Celebrations in Tahrir Square
 
Daniel Finnan

This week on The Sound Kitchen, you’ll hear from RFI English service journalist Daniel Finnan about what he witnessed on his recent trip to Egypt, plus a poem from listener Omoefe Onoriobe. Listener letters, great music, and the quiz too… don’t miss it!

Hello everyone!

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 Libya. Earlier this week, there were reports that Colonel Moamer Kadhafi had fled the country. Reports he denied, and went on state television to prove he was still there. But, true or false, send in the name of the country in which Kadhafi was reported to have sought refuge.

You have until 18 April to send in your answers, the answer and the winners will be announced on the 24 April programme. 

Get on into this kitchen and cook with me! I’m especially looking for your essays on the theme “This I Believe”. This new main dish on The Sound Kitchen is inspired by the great American radio journalist, Edward Murrow. Every evening on Murrow’s radio show in the 1950’s, a listener would read an essay about his own personal motivation in life. Your essay should stress your personal beliefs – the principals that guide your life. And of course, there’s a special prize in store for those who participate.

I still want you to write and tell me about people in your community who are doing good things – the “ordinary” people in your community who are doing “extra-ordinary” things, and trying to make the world a better place. Hearing about a person just like you and me who works just a little bit harder for others, and thinks a little less about himself, is encouraging for us all!

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.

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:

thesoundkitchen@rfi.fr
or, of course, via “real” mail to:
Susan Owensby
Club 9516 / The Sound Kitchen
B.P. 9516
75016 Paris, FRANCE

I look forward to hearing from you.

Susan
