Freedom Radio Kano (Muryar Jama’a) is a private Radio station in Kano. It came on air 1st December 2003 and is the first of its kind in Northern Nigeria. It broadcasts locally, in “a range of about two hundred kilometers as the crow flies.”
Their mission statement says that
Information, Education, Entertainment and the promotion and protection of our socio cultural values will be paramount in our programming, in addition to advancing the constitutional rights of Freedom of expression, especially for the less privileged members of the society, within the law.
Their schedule includes both religious and news programs, interviews, etc. One can find many interesting broadcasts, e.g. a live interview with HRH the emir of Kano and a feature on democracy.
They keep an archive where broadcasts can be downloaded as MP3 files. Unfortunately, the bandwidth of these files is very low (8 kbit/sec) and they are a bit hard to listen to.
Here is a sample:
