  • Saudi Arabia
    • Riyadh
      • LOGO: Saudi Broadcasting CorporationRadio Saudi 15435 on April 14, 17:12. SIO 453 in Ara. Prayer/song, then talking by male voice. Later at 17:18 I heard a 2 male voices and one female voices with occasional instrumental music sound effects. At some point I heard “salaam alaikum” (peace be unto you) as well as the English phrases said in a comic manner: “What’s your name?” and “Where’s my house?” By the end I was convinced it was a comedy program of some kind but I don’t know Arabic so that is just a guess.
