Friends, I am happy to share with you the news of the recent launch of Azerbaijani Radio Hour program in Washington D.C’s New World Radio station (WUST AM 1120).

A weekly one-hour program (first half in English, second – in Azeri) features informative segments on Azerbaijan’s culture for everyone to enjoy. One of the recent programs was all about Azerbaijani FOOD and I invite you to listen to it.

Learn about Azerbaijan’s ruby red symbol (guess what it is), hear me talk about Thanksgiving the Azerbaijani way (yes, it was my first radio interview, can you say?),  listen to other interesting interviews, and enjoy an Azerbaijani song about pomegranate!


If you are in the Washington D.C area, tune into the radio every Sunday, 9 AM Eastern Time. You can also listen to the Azerbaiani program online at


PS: Off to listen to the song about pomegranate, my hundredth time I think.
