Before Iftar, all you need is to pass the time, don’t be too shy to admit it. The hidden answer to this annual riddle, is radio drama shows! You might underestimate how funny/entertaining they can be, but they are great.

As always, actors are masters at making us laugh through the radio, just as much as they do in films and TV series. Since a bunch of radio dramas grabbed our attention, we decided to share the list with you. If you have missed the first few episodes of any of these radio shows, we will have a link of the first episode of each show ;). So tune in on your favourite radio show, forget about your dry mouth, the scorching sun and a long day ahead ‘til sunset.
