music journalist since 1992 | educator since 2004 | podcaster since 2020 | Iranian American since birth
In the 66th episode of the Picture of Lily Podcast, I talk about my lifetime of connections with iconic Iranian signer Googoosh and how the effect of the current uprisings in Iran, particularly in connection with music.
Here is all the media I reference in the episode: the Googoosh SPIN article, the list of Iranian protest songs for Variety, the Los Angeles Times article about accessing Western music in Iran and the episode of Don’t Kill the Vibe Podcast where I was a guest, speaking about music and politics in relation to Iran.
Also, here is Laurence’s Regal Standard EP0000001 I talk about in the episode.
