RadioRan in Israel

So I’m watching Fox News right now (not a usual habit, just trying to get updates on the DC Metro crash), and I just caught an interesting story about a guy named DJ Rani Amrani.

Amrani, a “garage” disc jockey, broadcasts online secular Iranian music from his small studio in Tel Aviv. In addition to receiving about 40,000 hits a day, he frequently receives phone calls from inside the war-torn country of Iran, though recently the phone lines are going dead. During the interview on Fox, he received a call from a young girl in Tehran who wanted to join the protests, but feared for her life.

It’s not just Twitter that’s bringing news out of Iran.
The story doesn’t seem to be on the channel’s website, but you can check out Rani’s station online at radioran.co.il
