KKFI volunteers, staff and listeners acknowledge with regret Nilufar Movahedi‘s decision to resign as host of Saba and Sayeh, Persian music and Farsi language programs that fit wonderfully into our Sunday afternoon schedule. During Nilufar’s tenure, these shows brought to KKFI’s listeners the best in Iranian music, along with news and other information aimed at educating us about the society and politics in this important region of the world. She did parts of her programs in English and parts in Farsi, but even those of us who don’t understand a word of Farsi enjoyed all of her programming – it’s been said of Nilufar truthfully that you could listen to her read the telephone book and enjoy it for hours. And the music and poetry….what a window into the soul of this part of our shared globe! We’re happy that Nilufar will remain associated with the station, and wish her all the best in whatever new endeavors she takes on. But we hope to get her back on the air at least intermittently for the joy that would give us all.
