Best Reason to Buy a More Powerful Radio Antenna (2008)

Radio Salaam Namaste

If you're not much for sports talk or wingnut political commentary, your radio may have gathered dust recently. Well, the sounds of "Desi" await you on 2-year-old community station Radio Salaam Namaste. For variety, there's no other station offering anything like this—the best sounds and top news (in four languages) from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. We're not talking belly-dancing beats. It's a sound that's been copied by Shakira, Madonna and Missy Elliott. But this is the original stuff, straight from the sub-continental source. It's hard to pick up the station's signal outside of Irving, but you can listen live on the Intertubes.
