I love your program! Believe it or not I just discovered it today. I'd been lamenting the loss of the music du monde on espace music. I only wish your program could come on every day! Thank you!

Alnoor Allidina (host)
Glad you enjoyed the program. Tune in next Sunday for a different host (Rob) playing more great world music.

Back to Jalilah: COOL! Yes, This Island Earth is one of the best world-ish programs on the planet. If you are new to CKCU, or Ottawa, I encourage you to check out the full roster of programs here -- many many cool things to treat your ears, for sure.

Hey Alnoor, just wanted to say yet again THANKS A TON! It was a blast co-hosting with you, and hope you had fun too. There is no safety net in live radio -- keeps it real. ;-)
