Music! I have been looking for this Internet radio station!

I have been looking for a cool Internet radio station form the middle east. Having spent a lot of time there in the past five years I miss the music! One of the highlights of my travels there was sitting and listening to an Egyptian group of about 15 musicians blasting through 4 hours of traditional music. I loved it so much I bought an Oud on a trip to Cairo and took lessons when I returned here to Los Angeles. (Who knew you could find and Oud teacher in L.A. let alone an Oud salesman in Cairo who went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor?!)
I have found a lot of talk radio from the region but with my severely limited Arabic it was not too interesting. Finding music has been difficult and spotty. This site from Beirut is awesome:
Radio Sawt.
