Where are you listening to SIBC from? Part 2

1. Your home province in the Solomons?

I’m a Munda gele with bits of Isabel, England, Bougainville  thanks to headhunting and merchant traders!

2. How long have you lived away from home?

4. What do you miss most about the Solomon Islands?

The neka (slippery cabbage), the fresh peanuts (roast peanuts suck!), the fish, nambo with alite nuts from Temotu, banana pudding, pawpaw, cut-nut…the list is endless. Except the dust and BO. I don’t miss the dust or BO hahaha.

5. How often do you listen to SIBC?

I tune in randomly just to listen to the pijin and the string band music.

6. What’s your favorite thing to listen to on SIBC?

The local and oldies music definitely. I remember a few years back when the then younger presenters were trying to play the same music as the FM stations and it was no fun. So glad that the string bands are more of a focus now though. 🙂 and so glad that SIBC is now online!
