Radio Miraya, South Sudan. Frequency 9940. 0300-0600 utc. Sudanese and English listed. Best African music I've heard in a long time. News in both languages.

 Thanks for the heads up. I will try to give them a listen this evening.

 I like the station logo and their mission to unite the North and South Sudanese people.
I see that they say their news is 'fair and balanced' too.  Grin

Yeah, it's run by United Nations who drive around in limousines and want everybody else to help the poor. Roll Eyes

I believe that the non-English language they're using is properly called "Juba Arabic" or something like that. I gather that it's a variant of Arabic that's mixed with tribal languages. It's similar in concept to Creole or Pidgin. That part of Africa was once part of the British Empire, so English is common. English and French are used in much of Africa to facilitate communication between different tribes, who each have their own language. Anyway, I will try to log this one, last I heard South Sudan was having trouble with different tribes jockeying for power, and some of the aid workers were being pulled out. Maybe it's stabilized for the time being.
