Utah Station Forges Link With Baghdad's "Station For Women"

BAGHDAD's radio station for women is getting some badly-needed help from listeners of SALT LAKE CITY's radio station for women, according to the SALT LAKE TRIBUNE's HOLLY MULLEN, who reports that BONNEVILLE's Talk KUTR-A has forged an alliance with RADIO AL-MAHABA at the urging of morning co-host KURT BESTOR.
RADIO AL-MAHABA's original transmitter was destroyed by a bomb but the station returned to the air with an expensive leased transmitter; UTAH-based WOMENADE is raising money to help the IRAQ station buy a new transmitter. The UTAH station is publicizing three local appearances by RADIO AL-MAHABA's spokeswoman BUSHRA JAMIL this week; for more information, click here.
