7 Ramadan Radio Shows to Give a Listen To

7 Ramadan Radio Shows to Give a Listen To

Between the hours between iftar and suhoor, Egyptians gather around in Ramdan to watch a wide range of mosalsalat (TV shows) that air on Arab television channels and streaming platforms.

Yet, the hours spent commuting to and from work, iftar and suhoor gatherings, as well as grocery shopping errands can feel tedious.

Radio shows have long made commuting more bearable—with riddles, songs, and varying programmes. In Ramadan, various Egyptian radio channels are airing shows,specifically made for radio,that will feature a number of Egyptian stars.

Here are some light-hearted comedy drama shows to listen to on the next commute.
