Celebrating women on nternational Women’s Day!

This week on The Sound Kitchen, you’ll hear the answer to the question about the agreement signed by the French and German governments in January. It’s a veritable banquet on The Sound Kitchen this week: there’s a special salute to International Women’s Day by RFI English’s women listeners, loads of listener news, a new club to welcome, music by request from Ralf Urbanczyk.
Hello everyone! Welcome to The Sound Kitchen weekly podcast, published every Saturday. 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 listen every week.
Wouldn’t you like to hear your voice on The Sound Kitchen? I know I would! Get out your telephones and record what we call “drops” – because we “drop” them in the show here and there - they’re the little “You’re listening to The Sound Kitchen, and Susan Owensby is cooking” things we sprinkle in the show. Many of these are from listeners, and since I’m always hungry, I want more! Here’s what you can say:
“I am (your name) from (your country) and you’re listening to The Sound Kitchen on Radio France International.”
“I am (your name) from (your country) and you’re listening to The Sound Kitchen, where you never know what you’ll be served!”
“I am (your name) from (your country) - you’re listening to The Sound Kitchen, and Susan Owensby is cooking.”
Or be creative and make up your own – why not? Samuel Francis from Jamaica sent me one that said “yah man” – I play it often!
Send them to me as either Mp3 or WAV files, at thesoundkitchen@rfi.fr
Paris Live, our afternoon news broadcast, wants in on the action, too! You can also send recordings of you saying the above, but instead of (obviously) "The Sound Kitchen", say "Paris Live". We'll have your voices all over the English Service airwaves - which is great!
I would also like to hear from you about your little moments of joy. Small, daily things: a beautiful sunset, a baby’s laugh. Add that as a very nice ingredient to our communal cooking – let’s share the joy! In these crazy times, we all need it … write to me at thesoundkitchen@rfi.fr
