This week's program commemorated the NAIDOC week observed in Australia during 7-14 July 2018 to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It paid tribute to Dr. Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu (1971-2017), an internationally renowned Indigenous Australian musician, who brought the aboriginal songs to the mainstream music and won numerous music awards. Born blind, Gurrumul sang stories of his land both in his dialect and in English. The songs played in the program were sung by Gurrumul Yunupingu, Delta Goodrem, Missy Higgins and Paul Kelly. This week's program was produced and presented by Ehsan Ullah.
