Lydia Ajono interviews Freda Pigru, a young radio station manager in rural northern Ghana, and West and Central Africa Representative to the Women's International Network of AMARC (the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters). Pigru describes her activities running a rural community radio station and especially recruiting and supporting women, who are shy of talking on mic but sometimes sing their issues.
