The 11 March Sound Kitchen quiz
Put on your thinking caps … it’s time for the quiz. You’ll hear great music and listener’s letters, too … don’t miss it!
You’ve surely noticed by now we’ve been experimenting with the Sound Kitchen recipes … on Saturdays, at 5:16 universal time, tune in to hear if you are amongst the week’s winners. The winners names are here on our website, too. Look for Short Features / Sound Kitchen Winners.
Tune in on Sundays, at 4:22, 5:52 and 7:22 universal time, for the quiz question ... and whatever else is cooking up in the Sound Kitchen.
I have wonderful news! “The Sound Kitchen Listener’s Cookbook” will finally become a reality. First it will be put on-line, and then we’ll get to work on a printed version. The web team has asked for photos of your prepared dishes, as well as of you. So if you sent in recipes, get back into your kitchen and get cooking … but before you 'tuck in' to your fabulous dishes, take a minute to take a picture or two of the final product. And of yourself, too!
The projected date for the on-line version of the cookbook is May. Yippee!
This week’s question is about international politics: Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in Washington, D.C. this past week, for meetings with U-S president Barack Obama. Very important meetings … which were about? What did Netanyahu and Obama discuss this past week in Washington, D.C.?
Send me your answer by 9 April; the answer and the winners will be announced on the 14 April programme. Be sure you send your postal address in with your answer … and be sure and tell me if you are a Mr or a Mrs or a Ms or a Miss – I don’t want to get it wrong!

Remember, it’s not just the quiz which wins you a prize. If your essay goes on the air, you’ll find a package in the mail from the Sound Kitchen. Write in about your community heroes – the people in your community who are quietly working to make the world a better place, in whatever way they can. I am still looking for your “This I Believe” essays, too. Tell us about the principles that guide your life … what you have found to be true from your very own personal experience. Or write in with your most memorable moment, and/or your proudest achievement.
Send your mini book reviews, your musical requests, your secret “guilty” pleasure (mine’s chocolate!), your tricks for remembering things, your favourite quotations and proverbs, descriptions of the local festivals you participate in, or just your general all-around thoughts to:
Include a phone number, if you can. I’d like to call you and put you on-the-air … and send you a thank-you gift for participating.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
All the best,
