This week on the Club 9516/Sound Kitchen, meet Cameroonian political cartoonist, painter, philanthropist and political exile, Issa Nyaphaga. There’s lots of good music ... and of course, the quiz ...



Hello everyone!

Here’s this week’s quiz question:
Who was Kwame Nkrumah? He was and is a highly respected figure in African history … write in and tell me what you know about him ….

But… in order for you to win, you have to also send me a recipe – trust me, you want to – or your favourite proverb, your story about weird things, or your hero! And - why not? How about your favourite guilty pleasure (mine’s chocolate!). Your favourite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon? Your proudest achievement?

Send your answers - and personal revelations! - by Monday 12 April to:
Susan Owensby
Club 9516/ The Sound Kitchen
BP 9516
75016 Paris, FRANCE
Or via e-mail:

The answer will be read on the 18 April show.

Attention: If you click on “Write to us” on this web page, your mail will not go where it is supposed to. It could easily get lost, so only use: for your quiz answers.

On the Club 9516/Sound Kitchen, we’ll be trying out some new recipes … but I need some help in the kitchen – and you’re just the one to do it. I want you to write me and tell me about people in your community who are doing good things. I want us to have 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 … as I noted above, I still want you to send me your favourite proverb, your favourite recipe – this one is really important, as we’re cooking up a surprise for you - and the weirdest thing that ever happened to you (or one of them, because I sure find there are a lot of weird things happening!). Or write in with your favourite guilty pleasure, your favourite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon, your proudest achievement … whatever you write about, just write! The show is only fun if you are a part of it.

To your pens!

Send your thoughts to me at:
or, of course,  via “real” mail:

Be sure you include your address and a phone number if you can. I’d like to call you, and put you on the air … which wins you a CD of music chosen by the RFI musical team.

One last thing … don’t forget to look for the Sound Kitchen page onFACEBOOK. I now know how to use it, so there’s all manner of things on there … links to silly videos that make me laugh, photographs shared by Sound Kitchen guests – plus comments from listeners like you, so take a look – and participate!

I look forward to hearing from you.
