Live Radio links to many African radio stations. Live Radio - COMFM If you have a sound card, speakers, Real Player, listen to radio programs from Benin, Ghana, Madagascar, Mauritius, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania. From COMFM in France. http://www.comfm.com/sites/rdirect/indexa.html Channel Africa International shortwave radio service operated by the South African Broadcasting Corp. In English, French, Portuguese, and some African languages. Has current news and the broadcast schedule. For those with sounds cards/speakers/RealPlayer you can listen to the news from Johannesburg or see videos such as the opening of the South African Parliament (transmission may not be very good). http://www.channelafrica.org/index.html There are also sources for audio (and some video) broadcasts from outside of Africa. Some on the "Africa South of the Sahara," Current Events page are Deutsche Welle, BBC, Radio France Internationale, CNN. Karen Fung *** 5. Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 From: Pieter Remes <firstname.lastname@example.org> MIT's WMBR provides a list of the world's online radio-stations. The following link gets you to their page of African stations: http://wmbr.mit.edu/stations/w-af.html . The Dutch Africaserver's (http://www.africaserver.nl/muziekdans) Muziek en Dans webpage offers a couple of other African stations not in the MIT list: Radio Television Senegalaise: http://www.primature.sn/rts Korail FM (Madagascar): http://www.aitusa.com/anio/default.htm Kaya FM (South Africa): http://www.kaya-fm.co.za/kayafm/splash/welcome.htm At http://www.sudonline.com there is a link to Senegal's SUD FM's webcast. Good listening (when the servers are not full)! *** 6. Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 From: Jonathan Reynolds <email@example.com> Patrick Malloy is right to point up that there are African radio stations with webcasts. I think this is a great way of getting students to be in touch with things African. Here are a couple of my favorite web-stations in Africa: http://www.joy977fm.com.gh/ http://www.sudonline.com It is true that the servers are often busy. Just bookmark them and give a click every so often. It is frequently worth the effort. It fills me with techno-geek joy to have genuine (West) African radio playing through the speakers of my office computer.
