Highlights of the 19 September, 2009, show:
A couple of Eid songs, several Sufistic pieces about mystical love, a bit of political naughtiness, and a pinch of metal. Thanks to Jason, Aurangzeb, and Rajib for supplying some of the music.
The playlist is also available here: http://ahmedn8.blogspot.com/
I will be on the air next on October 17.

Ellen and Pam ask, Why? or, more accurately, Why?! WHY?!
Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the Tombs
Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein
And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others
And I salute you brother
Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died
— Jim Carroll, People Who Died
(Artist/writer Jim Carroll died this week of a heart attack. He was 60 years old.)
