X-posted from H-Africa Radio Tanzania: A Disappearing History On Tape | KERA News At the archives of Radio Tanzania, more than 15,000 reel-to-reel tapes are stacked in floor-to-ceiling shelves. Each band, musician and recording date is painstakingly notated. The tapes reside inside three musty rooms of the Tanzania Broadcasting Corp., which occupies the old brick-and-concrete BBC building in Dar es Salaam. Radio Tanzania was the country's only station from its birth in 1951 until the mid-1990s, when competing stations came on the air and state-controlled radio became irrelevant. http://bit.ly/Ub8cNw Source: http://keranews.org/post/radio-tanzania-disappearing-history-tape
