Farm Radio International’s audio postcards

FRI’s catalogue of audio postcards is growing!

The idea behind an audio postcard is simple: a sound clip of a farmer, radio partner or Farm Radio International employee describing how they have been affected by the work that we do together is illustrated by a photograph of them “in action.”

One recent audio postcard features an interview with Tanzanian Bernadetha Mmaravi about her life as a farmer. With her radio at her side, she told our correspondent, “I like listening to the radio, especially Pride FM. It’s my favourite station.” See and hear more at: http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2014/03/14/voices-from-the-field-benedetha-tanzania/

Audio postcard: Announcing 500 radio partners! was released to coincide with the milestone of FRI signing an agreement with its 500th radio broadcasting partner. You can hear Blythe McKay’s report here: http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2014/02/03/audio-postcard-announcing-500-radio-partners/

Can you do better? Why not record a soundtrack of your work with farmers, or extract a minute or two from one of your agricultural programs and email it along with a photograph which describes the scene to proberts@farmradiotz.org. We will edit the best and post them on our blog site, sharing it with the wider FRI community!
