Iraqi Radio Station for Women Struggles to Survive

Bushra Jamil

By Dan Bammes

Salt Lake City, UT – After the fall of Saddam Hussein, a group of expatriate Iraqis proposed a radio service for Iraqi women. Their dream became Radio al-Mahaba, 96.1 FM in Baghdad. This week, one of its founders was in Salt Lake City to announce a new alliance with a commercial station here, Bonneville's AM 820. Bushra Jamil stopped by the KUER studios to talk about Radio al-Mahaba's struggle to survive. She spoke with kuer's Dan Bammes.
