    I want to listen to this but it’s 5:40am & I can barely keep my eyelids apart.

    Record yourself please so we can listen kesho.

    Night night & good luck with this, man.

    @Mo: Thanks for the luv Mo. I’ll see if I can get a recording of it and from what I hear, it’s tentative, but I may be on the show next week so hopefully this is the beginning of yet another tipping point.

    Yay will listen online, it will be 8 pm here in nyc, that’s in 10 mins… let me get ready!

    Ola! Really proud of what your doing – loving that you are informing “Africans” on what they need to know… where were you when I first moved to Canada? Keep doing what your doing and PLEASE – this is NOT a waste of time – the information is vital. If you can help one person, trust me it goes a long way! Enough said! Be Blessed dude!
    Always – Linda

    Oh!…..The Silent Yay!!!!!!!! :)

  • By meek meek, July 1, 2008 @ 2:35 pm

    i listened to the beginning… you must be excited what were your thoughts how did you feel? congratulations Mwangi?

  • By Sema, July 1, 2008 @ 3:14 pm

    Kweli kikuyus help each other. You can’t ignore that it’s the truth cos tehre with mature subject matter and more fundamental in unifying people etc…but guess what, Mwangi gets airtime – and from another kikuyu. Classic.
    Oh, I am not a blogger. Just an apt observer.

  • By Carol, July 1, 2008 @ 10:29 pm

    Congrats, lakini those truly are faces for Radio……

  • By Saz =), July 1, 2008 @ 10:53 pm

    Our Mwangi is FAMOUS! hahaha

    Mmm… 3am… means it was what time in Kenya?

    On ya, mate.

  • By whome, July 1, 2008 @ 10:57 pm

    @acolyte lol! :-D stop hating on the capital crew

  • By cicero, July 2, 2008 @ 3:57 am

    Are you going to post a recording? What did you talk about?

    I liked the David (Mashada) interview. A pretty knowledgeable guy who would probably be successful even if he was a scuba diver.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:06 am

    @El Segundo: Hope you caught it, I am so excited! I bounced around the house for like 20 minutes when I first heard my name mentioned.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:09 am

    @Linda: I can’t say thanks enough for the props and the love. Super super appreciated. For you, me thinks I’ll definitely keep it going.
    You know what, my hope is that, some day every single immigrant moving into a fresh new country can never say that they couldn’t find information on how to make it. I am glad that this blog is the blog you wish you had when you first reached Canada, I think the same thing when I first landed in Oz. That yay wasn’t silent, lol, all those exclamations, ;)

    Be blessed too, I guess talk to you next week.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:10 am

    @meek meek: I bounced around the house for like twenty minutes straight after listening to the first part. Apparently I was spoken about a little bit more but am yet to listen to the rest of what was said about me. Still on a high from part one.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:13 am

    @Sema: Linda is a Kiuk? I didn’t know. So does that mean I shouldn’t expect to be on anything other than Kameme (Kikuyu music station) and Capital FM from now on? Hmmm, best brush up on my Kiuk….;) Or maybe I should change my name depending on the radio station I go to….get on a few Coast stations calling myself, Mustafa…….;)

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:13 am

    @rags: Short, sweet and to the point, huh? Thank you my friend, thank you profusely.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:15 am

    @whome: I definitely have a recording of the first part, am unsure if I recorded the following parts. Once I am finished talking to all you guys I’m going to go through the hours of Capital FM and recorded, see how much I got, holla at the folks at Capital and ask them if I can post it up and if so, I should post it up soon enough…………why is everyone but Linda not doing the silent yay ;) ?

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:16 am

    @Carol: If the folks at Capital have no probz, with it, I’ll post some sound soon enough and should the interview happen, I’ll see if I can get that on the blog too.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:17 am

    @val: Indeed, haven’t heard from you in ages. Hope u r enjoying TZ. Thanks for the warm wishes.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:18 am

    @Carol: Glad I could take you back home. For those who don’t know, almost every radio station you used to listen to in Africa, should you Google their website, they almost always have a link like “Stream now” or “Listen live” where you can listen to the radio station live on the Internet.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:19 am

    @acolyte: That was just cold man. Thanks for the warm wishes brother!

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:20 am

    @Saz: It was actually 10 a.m., Australian time and 3 a.m. Kenyan time. Thank you for the warm wishes. I am definitely having a party in my head right now.

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 4:23 am

    @cicero: They actually didn’t interview me. They spoke about the blog and as far as I can tell, I am going to be interviewed next week. David indeed is a brilliant cat. I think one of the coolest things about this blog is just the calibre of people I am meeting and interviewing as a result, truly brilliant guys. Like just before I typed this I came from a conversation (which I will post up in about 12 days with Derrick Ashong and if you don’t know who that is please go to Youtube and type that name or look for Derrick Ashong on this site)

  • By whome, July 2, 2008 @ 8:25 am

    Oh yea DNA. What initials and what a man. Am so jealous that you talked to him. He’s a legend. Can’t wait to soma the post.
    Keep them coming. Ali bumbaye!

  • By Mwangi, July 2, 2008 @ 8:28 am

    @who me: It’s gonna be pretty cool, pretty cool

  • By Caustic Blonde, July 2, 2008 @ 6:08 pm

    Congrats! :)

  • By Evan, July 2, 2008 @ 6:19 pm


  • By Mwangi, July 3, 2008 @ 1:42 am

    @Caustic Blonde: Thank you, thank you kindly!

  • By Mwangi, July 3, 2008 @ 1:42 am

    @Evan: Merci!

  • By Chiira, July 9, 2008 @ 6:56 pm

    I have listened to one of the chics talk about your website and i decided to visit it. Those guys have truly helped in marketing you. And last night’s interview was really cool.

  • By Mwangi, July 9, 2008 @ 10:15 pm

    @Chiira: Welcome to tDA. I am glad you enjoyed the interview and hope it was of use to you. Any feedback, comments and questions and my contacts are at the top of the page.

    Folks at Capital indeed showed me excess love and I am so thankful for that. Hopefully it will bring on a flood of new people who can get value from this joint.
