With the holy month of Ramadan kicking into full gear, that means food, family, festive music decorations, the super bowl of shows and… more food. But one thing that’s already on our radar, especially this Ramadan, are the radio shows.
The perfect Ramadan-themed entertainment to keep you company on your commute or as you count down the minutes to iftar time. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the radio shows that will be performed by some of Egypt’s leading actors. Though much isn’t still revealed about their plot details, we can see a promising line-up.
