One of weird things about me is that being a Punjabi I *love* punjabi songs that employ traditional lyrics but modern music. So to quench this eternal thirst, I sometimes listen to BBC Asian Network radio. The only show that I am able to listen to most of the times is The Adil Ray Show. It's not that Adil Ray plays Punjabi music all the time, it's just that he is a fun loving guy.
So, today when I tuned in (after many days) I found presenters confused about a part of lyrics from a song they had played earlier. It was that why would a shoe make noise as the singer sang "jooti choon choon kerdi aa". Instantly, I sent in an email describing the reason. Adil Ray read it online. Can you freaking believe it? Doesn't happen often.
Listen to the recording of the show at following link. If you can't wait for 2 hours, 28 minutes and 56 seconds, just move the play bar to 2:27:57
