Radio Tanzania Archives

Radio Tanzania Dar es Salaam is sitting on a huge collection of really good old music and other archives, no doubt. The State was the only broadcaster for, like, ever and I know that all its media organs are sitting on archives of seriously valuable pictures, audio and film recordings that are probably rotting in storage as I type this. So here's a project I am excited about the Radio Tanzania Heritage Project.

They got in touch recently with this message: "the Tanzania Heritage Project is an organization attempting to revive the Radio Tanzania Dar-es-Salaam archives through digitization, film, photography, and social media. Please let your friends and networks know what we're trying to do. We don't want to do this project unless we have the support and excitement of Tanzanians."

They are Tweetable @RadioTanzania and if you want further networking holler at the addresses online or let me know to hook you up with the project team. Fade out.
