Afghan radio


Kylie tunes are proving a huge hit with listeners of new music station Arman FM, and it seems locals in the Afghan capital just can't get her out of their head. "We play a lot of Kylie Minogue," DJ Zaid Mohseni told the Reuters news agency. "She is very popular."

The Arman FM flash intro and somewhat improbable road cruiser are worth a look. Their picture gallery tells stories which belie the anti-liberation gloomsters. Arman FM's polling reveals three of their five most popular DJs are women. That is not just good news. That is astonishing.

The Afghan word for hope is Arman and that is exactly what the station is about.

The Flea stands in solidarity with the people of Afghanistan in their love of Kylie. Truly, she unites us all. Kylie Minogue's new single is available on-line in advance of its November 2 general release. The video arrives October 20.

Filmed in Barcelona, Minogue pays homage to French 60s sexpot Brigette Bardot, all smoking eyes and perfect pout, a look sure to strike a personal chord with the popstar's Gallic squeeze Olivier Martinez and satisfy Kylie addicts everywhere.

Now including Afghanistan.
