Oct. 27 is Diwali, the celebration of lights observed by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, some Buddhists, and some who just love light. So we hear songs about light, along with other global tunes.
Note: The playlist is a bit shorter this week, because between songs we asked for your support of KAOS Community Radio. If you’re not already a KAOS member, click that link and get it done! Thanks!
