The top of DJ Sa’id David Rabi’s head is just visible behind a dense thicket of microphones and antennas as he introduces a song in his tiny radio studio. As the thumping beats and melancholy crooning of a Persian pop number fill the air, Rabi swings round in his wheelchair, slaps his palm on his knee, and beams in delight.“That’s a great tune. It’s a band from Tehrangeles,” he enthuses, using the Persian nickname for the large Iranian immigrant community in Los Angeles.
