The PARTY FROM DAMASCUS is temporarily off the air, as I have left WHPK 88.5 FM and will be transitioning to a new radio home in Chicago. If you'd like to be notified, please do send me email.

The only show in Chicagoland devoted to the music of the Middle East and related events. On air for TWELVE YEARS.

Listen to WHPK 88.5 FM Thursdays from 6-7 PM CST to "Party from Damascus". A variety of contemporary Arab music, Chicago music events and guests. Pop music from Lebanon, radio hits from Egypt, traditional music from Syria, Khaleeji from the Gulf, rhaks sharkhi bellydance music - sounds of real life, music from every Middle Eastern country. Some shows feature the "Bhangra Bonus" - with Bhangra from India. It's always a party, and everyone's invited, no passport necessary. Erika, the Sultan's Favorite is your bellydancing hostess, shimmy along!
