      How are things going with the project?

      Some of my favorite music is afrobeat and highlife, so to hear a type of music coming out of Africa within the same vein but with different backgrounds is so exciting!

      My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Tanzania and had the opportunity to enjoy a lot of its culture, including its music, so we're glad to be able to contribute to your efforts in restoring the archives of Radio Tanzania. Best of luck! -Dan & Sarah Hess
