The 20 May Sound Kitchen quiz

Audio 11:18

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!


Hello everyone!

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 Listeners 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 a recipe, get back into your kitchen and get cooking … but before you “tuck in” to your fabulous dish, 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 sometime this month … keep your fingers crossed!

This week’s question is again about European politics, and elections – which seem to be following a trend. Recently, voters in Greece, Italy, and also here in France have rejected austerity policies, by voting out the parties which promote them.

Now it’s Germany’s turn: last Sunday Angela Merkel’s party lost in the North Rhine – Westphalia state legislative elections. North Rhine – Westphalia, by the way, is Germany’s most populous state, and one which has a history of influencing national elections. Send in the name of Angela Merkel’s party, the party that was voted out in the German North Rhine – Westphalia elections last Sunday.

Get your answer to me by the 18th of June; the answer and the winners will be announced on the June 23rd 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!

And 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 send in your most memorable moment, and/or your proudest achievement.

Write in with your Radio Club’s activities, 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 of course, I’ll send you a thank-you present for participating.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

All the best,
