Radio Khartoum

is primarily the work/fault of Alexander Bailey. He is helped by:

Jiri Adamik-Novak: audio mastering
Lucy Laird: photography and proofreading
Jun Kurihara: Japanese translation
Angelique Clark: video, color, second, third and fourth opinions
Matt Jones: phrase turning
Neil Shibata: politics, puns, punctuation
Ed Shelflife: html bugging and vacation mail order backup action
Henrik Engström: RK website version 1 ("postmarks and stamps"), Scandinavian liaison, spin
Dale Marquez: assembly assistance and research
Richard O'Brien: words and second opinions
Michaël Korchia: himself


No one remembers for sure, but it is probable that the original inspiration for fake birds design theme of this website came from Czech animation, and quite likely from the films of Jiří Trnka in particular.

RK salutes

…the boutique shops and mail orders who provide a light in the underground.

Most frequently asked question:

Where can I get 3" CDs made? The discs for KHZ198 through KHZ300 were manufactured by Sonopress in Germany. The 3" CD component of MHZ103 was made by DADC Austria.
