During the first hour we listened to a special about the music of the Talesh region in north western Iran. The show was produced by Dan Rein and Baktash Boghrati.
In the second hour we had in studio guests, Deep Midnight. Deep Midnight plays Greek Rembetika music and are Viv Corringham and James Holdman.
A very grateful thanks to Ron Thums and Jean Silverberg for coming in and doing the show on very short notice while I was taking time to meet with doctors regarding my mom's medical status. As many of you know, she has been hospitalized since December 18th from diverticulitis complications, and it has been a real battle. Ron and Jean came up with some great music and a stellar show. Also, many of you remember them doing Radio Rumpus Room on Friday nights, which they decided to retire not too long ago.
