In the fall of 1997, two Swarthmore college seniors from Ghana, Sylvia Kwakye and Joseph Armah, hit upon the idea of hosting an African music radio show on WSRN FM, the campus radio station of Swarthmore college in Pennsylvania. However since there had not been a show like it in a long time, a listenership base had to be built virtually from scratch. Along with Kwabena Adu, as the show's intern, they worked hard to win the hearts of African music lovers in and around the Swarthmore area. In no time, it had become one of the more popular shows on WSRN.
The second year, the show was hosted by Nii Addy '01, Kwabena Adu '01 and Stephen Armah '01. Nii, Isiuwa Iyahen and Tsiri Agbenyega continued the good work the year after. In 2001 Tsiri Agbenyega and Ignatius Imonje held the fort. Unfortunately, the show is currently on hiatus due to a lack of DJ's. However, over the years the show's popularity has kept on increasing as more and more people come to discover that indeed .
