The 9 October Sound Kitchen quiz

Audio 08:20

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 that 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.

This week’s question is about the Nobel Prizes – specifically, the Peace Prize, awarded on Friday, 7 October to… whom? Who won the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize?

Send me your answer by 6 November; the answer and the winners will be announced on the 12 November programme. Be sure you send your postal address in with your answer, and be sure to tell me if you are a Mr., a Mrs., a Ms. or a Miss – I don’t want to get it wrong!

Remember, it’s not just the quiz that 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 proverbs, your tricks for remembering things, 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,
