We will also speak with KPFA’s music programmer Kutay Kugay about the July 8th fundraiser for Bay Area based musical pioneer Cheb i Sabbah who has been diagnosed with cancer. We also discuss the state of political prisoners in Iran and talk with Executive Director of the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran Hadi Ghaemi.
