No one can deny the importance of music to any culture. Last week’s international radio pick, Kral Pop Radyo, highlighted that fact. Neither, however, can anyone deny the power of discursive programming and its ramifications on culture.
BBC World Service’s Programmes Across Africa series is the pick of the week. Presented in podcasts for the late-night listener, or live, these programmes allow the listener time to delve into an array of social, political, and cultural niceties from the African continent.
Whether you are concerned with a particular regime or with daily news from the four corners of Africa, this world radio programme series has the goods for all appetites.
This is a series to suit the internationally minded, enlightening the curious with comprehensive insight into a complex continent, while entertaining those just wanting to kill time by exploring the world through culture.
