POSTED: 11/14/12 12:26 PM

GREAT BAY Friends, well-wishers, and fans of Conscious Lyrics gathered at the SOS Radio studio last Saturday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the radio magazine with host and producer Shujah Reiph.

Reiph answered questions posed to him by his guests and the manager of SOS Radio “Billy D” Hamlet, from how the program started, its objectives, to lessons learned since the program started in 1992.

In-studio guests that were invited or just dropped by included poet and author Lasana M. Sekou, educator and former Minister of Education and Culture Dr. Rhoda Arrindell, political scientist Joseph Lake Jr., author Taymer Masson, and author and host of Culture Time radio program Fabian Badejo.

“I’m thankful to all of the radio stations that I worked with over the last 20 years, Radio St. Maarten, Radio Soualiga, and SOS Radio,” Shujah Reiph said.

The first broadcast of the radio magazine was on July 12, 1992, and the program “has been very consistent and punctual. Hosting the program is a labor of love,” he continued.

Over the years Conscious Lyrics, as a foundation, has also been involved with organizing lectures, writing newspaper columns, and revealing and promoting historical and cultural realities of St Martin and the Caribbean.

Conscious Lyrics has featured artists, authors, historians, and cultural activists from St Martin and throughout the Caribbean, Canada, the USA, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
