Listen in on the 2Famous.TV Radio SHOW from Radio Beirut, Every Friday!
As you must have read on the news a few weeks ago, there was an awful bomb in Downtown Beirut, Lebanon, which killed innocents and a respectable politician. A few hours later, Matias and I were hosting 2famous.tv’s weekly radio show.
