This fascinating episode explores the soundtrack of Iranian immigration, particularly in Los Angeles, before, during, and after the 1979 revolution. Our guests also discuss the ways that Persian pop music and its icons have shaped a generation, as well as how Persian pop in "Tehrangeles" has influenced music produced within Iran.
