RFI's The Sound Kitchen Quiz

This week's question is about a birthday, that of South Africa's African National Congress, the ANC, founded 100 years ago. The ANC is South Africa's governing party and has been since the first post-apartheid elections in 1994. But the ANC was not always called the ANC … the name was changed in 1923.

My question to you is, what was the original name of the ANC, founded on 8 January, 1912, in Bloemfontein, South Africa?

Send me your answer by 13 February; the answer and the winners will be announced on the 18 February programme. Be sure you send your postal address in with your answer … and be sure and tell me if you are a Mr. or a Mrs. or a Ms. or a Miss – I don't want to get it wrong!

Send your answers to:

Valentine's Day is just around the corner … send in your musical request and dedication for your sweetheart!
And remember, it's not just the quiz which wins you a prize. If your essay goes on the air, you'll find a package in the mail from the Sound Kitchen. Write in about your community heroes – the people in your community who are quietly working to make the world a better place, in whatever way they can.

I am still looking for your "This I Believe" essays, too. Tell us about the principles that guide your life … what you have found to be true from your very own personal experience. Or write in with your most memorable moment, and/or your proudest achievement.

Send your mini book reviews, your musical requests, your secret "guilty" pleasure (mine's chocolate!), your tricks for remembering things, your favourite quotations and proverbs, descriptions of the local festivals you participate in, or just your general all-around thoughts to:

Include a phone number, if you can. I'd like to call you and put you on-the-air … and send you a thank-you gift for participating.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

All the best,
