Local activist Abdirizak Bihi hosts an English language show about the Somali community. Bihi says "I started this show with KFAI Radio to help all of us come together and share culture, music, food, events, and resources, and to break down those little cultural isolations between our communities."
Scheduling an English language program about the Somali community has been a goal of KFAI's General Manager, Leah Honsky. "Part of our mission is to increase understanding between peoples and communities," Honsky said. "I know our English speaking audience really wants to have a more complete picture of their East African neighbors, and I hope this program will promote that."
