"Everyone quiet, please." The noise level in the KCRW-FM control room instantly subsided as closing time for "The African Beat" radio program approached. The strains of "Aki Special" by Prince Nico Mbarga suddenly went silent in the monitor speakers as C. C. Smith, co-host of the Saturday afternoon show, faded down the track and flipped open the mike. Smith and co-host Solomon Egbuho (who has acquired the on-air nickname of Solomon Solo), ran down the closing credits.
