Listen, Learn and Live

Is the past that Important?

Living the present and facing the future with confidence is truly a good thing. It defines a life well lived.

The present is indeed a gift, an opportunity to make the most of each day and to add value. That essentially secures the future.

But all this is not possible without the past. Yesterday begets both today and tomorrow. The experiences of days gone by and the lessons learnt are the foundation upon which the future is built.

Looking Back

Back in the day is an insightful look at something that happened years back, but had a great impact and shaped our lives. It may be in popular culture, the media, politics, science or the arts.

Today, we look at a radio promo that was run some years back on Kenya's first privately owned FM radio station, 98.4 Capital FM.

Russian Roulette

Following is the full copy of the  'Russian Roulette' radio promo that was run on 98.4 Capital FM to raise public awareness and warn against the dangers of having unprotected sex. Do you remember it?
There is a game called Russian Roulette. It's one of the most dangerous games in the world.

A revolver is loaded with a single bullet. The chamber is spun, the gun is then pointed at one's head, and the trigger pulled...

Only someone suicidal would play this game. But if you are having unprotected sex, you are already playing this game.

If you choose to have sex, always use a condom.

Listen, learn and live, with 98.4 Capital FM.

Did this promo have a positive impact in your life? Or in the lives of your friends?

I personally found it worthwhile. Let us read, learn and live..... on Peter's Walkabout.
