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.

Today’s question was read on 23 October, and was a sporty one – that day France was playing New Zealand in the final Rugby World Cup match. I asked you to send in the name of the country that won, as well as the final score. New Zealand took the title; the final score was 8 to 7.

The winners this week are: Mahmuda Sultana Mitu from Sirajganj, Bangladesh; Mr. Ashok Gupta of the Green Listeners Club in Punjab, India; D. Hazarika from Assam, India; George Boateng from Kumasi, Ghana, and George Bita from Iganga, Uganda.

Congratulations winners!

This week’s question is about yet another European government which has fallen due to the debt crisis … this time, Spain’s. Parliamentary elections were held this last weekend, and the ruling Socialists, in power since 2004, lost to the center-right Popular Party. Who - as head of the Popular Party - is expected to be confirmed as Spain’s new Prime Minister, when the parliament meets in December?

Send me your answer by 2 January; the answer and the winners will be announced on the 7 January 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!

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 write in with your most memorable moment, and/or your proudest achievement.

Send 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 send you a thank-you gift for participating.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

All the best,
