This week you’ll hear about The Chirac Foundation for the Prevention of Conflict, whose 2010 prize went to Mario Giro of the Community of Sant'Egidio, and a new Sound Kitchen feature : listener essays on the theme “This I Believe”. There’s great music, and of course, the quiz!

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.

I still want you to crowd into the kitchen and cook with me … I want you to write and tell me about people in your community who are doing good things, for 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 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.

And then the all-important recipes and proverbs: get ‘em in! As I’ve been telling you, we’re going to put together a Sound Kitchen listener cookbook, filled with your recipes - and your proverbs, too. We won’t put the book together for awhile, so there’s still time to be included. If you contribute, you will be the first to receive a Sound Kitchen Cookbook. Later, we can use it as a prize for the quiz.

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:

I look forward to hearing from you.
