The Boston radio station Radio Soleil International broadcasts Haitian music, advertisements for local businesses (mainly in Brockton, Mass.), public service announcements, news and talk from http://radiosoleilinternational.com/aboutus1.htm. The music library is terrific. Since ads and public service announcements are all in Kreyol, they provide an opportunity to hear highly repetitive contextualized chunks of the language, with exaggeration typical of commercials, making the words easier to pick out & understand. This is the first post of a few upcoming links to radio stations broadcasting in Kreyol/Haitian Creole on the web.
