In Niger, where more than 80% of the population is illiterate, radio is the main means of mass communication. Simple yet reliable, the radio is everywhere, in the streets, homes and the bush. It entertains, educates, informs and helps provide a check on power. Today, through the radio waves, the citizens of Niger seize the microphone and taste democracy. It is the FM revolution.
