This week on The Sound Kitchen, you’ll hear the answer to the question about the January elections in Greece. There's a surprise guest, some great music, and of course, the new quiz question. So click on that little “Listen” arrow above, and join in!


Hello everyone!

Welcome to The Sound Kitchen. You can catch the programme on-the-air every Saturday, at 4:52, 6:22, and 7:52 universal time. You’ll hear the winner’s names announced and the week’s quiz question, along with all the other ingredients you have grown accustomed to: your letters and essays, “On This Day”, quirky facts and news, interviews, and great music … so be sure and tune in every Saturday.

This week’s quiz: On 31 January, I asked you a question about Greece. The country had just held their national elections, and I asked you to write in with the results of those polls: the name of the party which won the majority, and hence the office of prime minister.

The answer is: Alexis Tsipras is Greece’s prime minister; the name of his party is Syriza – which is the acronym for the Greek words “Coalition of the Radical Left”.

The winners this week are:  Shivendu Paul, the president of the Metali Listeners Club in Murshidabad, India; Ekane Ntungwe Etape from Yaounde, Cameroon; RFI Listeners Club member Muhammad Nasyr from Katsina State, Nigeria; Charles Kabwe from Lusaka, Zambia, and Sadia Gulshan, from Sahiwal, Pakistan.

Congratulations, winners!
