Thanks Josh, lovely pictures. I am always intrigued by the walls in studios and the desk. I always wonder who gets to choose the deco. Here in SA, when you visit a radio station you can tell which supplier installed it by the desk/ deco used.

One thing still missing in your introduction though… :smile:

Hi all,

I am going to join and introduce myself this week as last week I was in Dodoma, the Capital :slight_smile: with broadcasters from Mwangaza FM. My name is Kassim Sheghembe and I work with Farm Radio International as ICT Officer. I am working with broadcaster to make Radio more interactive and respond to farmers/listeners need.

I have trained more than 15 radio stations in Tanzania and I have been exploring tools and ways to make radio more interactive. I strongly believe that radio is a very powerful tool for raising voices of unheard. But this is possible and even more effective when radio integrate feedback from listeners.

I am very fortunate to be in this discussion and I hope to learn more from all of you on tools and ways you use to make radio more interactive.

Thank you :slight_smile:
