Jeetaay : Presented by oussoukoro Sidibé, Seereer Radio’s first ever 100% WhatsApp show (Thursday, 31 January 2019)

Jeetaay is an informal phone-in, e-mail or text-in talk show where you contact the studio and chat with the presenter about anything and everything.  However, for the next few months (as from January 2019), we will be giving a new twist to this show. For the next few months, Seereer Radio's presenters will be bringing up topics on Seereer Radio Presenters' WhatsApp group chat to be discussed each week by all our presenters and special guests.

Our presenters rotate each week and take the role of main presenter. The main presenter will then bring up topics to be discussed by his/her co-presenters. Discussions closes by 15:00 GMT every Wednesday. These audio messages are then edited and broadcast on Seereer Radio every Thursday night at 21:00 GMT. The entire show is by WhatsApp - 100%. There will be little editing prior to broadcasting on Seereer Radio because we want to keep the raw and authentic feel of a typical WhatsApp group chat. We are currently experimenting with some of our shows using WhatsApp. We are one of the first Senegambian radio stations (online or frequency) to use this format -100%. WhatsApp is one of the major messaging services used by most Senegambians. We will be utilising this format once a week for the next couple of months mixed with our usual live broadcast format. 

This Jeetaay Show is Seereer Radio's first ever 100% WhatsApp show. It was recorded from 28th to 30th January 2019 and broadcast on Seereer Radio on Thursday, 31 January 2019 at 21:00 GMT. Our special guests this week are the renown Senegalese recording artist Simon Sene, and Senegalese journalist and radio and TV broadcaster Macaire Nidaye (DJ Mac). We are pleased to announced that DJ Mac has now joined the Seereer Radio team.  You can listen to him on Seereer Radio every Saturday from 16:00 to 18:00 GMT on Kirinene Ngueel (16:00  - 17:00, in Seereer) and Setsima  (17:00 - 18:00, in Wolof). The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio teams would like to offer a warm welcome to DJ Mac and wish him great success with his shows.

The main presenter for this show is Moussoukoro Sidibé (Moussou). On this show, Moussou wanted to discuss the level of violence, theft and burglary running rampant in Senegambia, and asked for solutions to these social issues.

Open Mike Special : Seereer Radio marks its first anniversary (5th January 2017)

 Open Mike is a no-holds-barred talk show where you, the listener sets the agenda. Call the show and talk about anything and everything. Callers are not screened. Want to talk about politics, economics, history, social issues affecting the Seereer people of Senegal, Gambia or Mauritania? Whatever it is, call in and make yourself heard. On this special show, Tamsier Joof is joined by Moussoukoro Sidibé, Laity Sene and Khady Basse (commonly known as Kambul) to celebrate Seereer Radio's first anniversary. Yes! Seereer Radio is 1 year old today. Although founded on 16th November 2015, it was officially launched on 5th January 2016. Join us as we celebrate our first anniversary - looking back at our journey from our first broadcast to the present. Expect lots of laughter and outtakes. 

Obituary of Fatou Gueye

Towards the end of this show, the celebratory mood changed when we found out that the legendary Fatou Gueye has passed away. Laity Sene, who was co-presenting this show was called during the live broadcast to be told that Fatou has passed away. Instead of telling his co-presenters, he handed over to his wife to join us on the broadcast as he went straight to the house of Fatou Gueye, but before leaving told his wife Hawa not to tell the Seereer Radio team until the end of the show so not to spoil celebratory mood. Hawa kept to her promise and didn't tell the co-presenters about the sad news until towards the end of the show. The passing of Fatou Gueye was broadcast live on Seereer Radio to everyone's shock and disbelief. With regret, this sad news was first broken on Seereer Radio. On Friday, 6th January 2017 at 14:24, the Seereer Resource Centre (SRC) and Seereer Radio issued a joint tribute on the sad passing of Fatou Gueye on their Facebook pages. which reads:

"The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio  are sad to announce the passing of the legendary Fatou Gueye, who sadly passed away yesterday. The sad news was broken live on Seereer Radio's first anniversary special programme last night.

Fatou Gueye was a brilliant artist who worked diligently over the years to preserve and promote Seereer and Senegambian cultural heritage and identity. She was a highly talented artist with a long career especially within the Nguel. Only about a month ago, Seereer Radio's Cosaan Seereer team were planning to have her on the Cosaan Seereer Show, and arrangements were being made to accommodate that.

The Seereer and Senegambian community have lost a great artist and a wonderful human being. The SRC and Seereer Radio teams would like to offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. May her beautiful soul rest in perfect peace.

Goliŋ."
