OBITUARY: Sholeh Sadre SBS Radio Melbourne ... For The Good Times ...
by Darius Kadivar

On New Years Eve, I got an email from my friend Kayvan Mashayekh ( director of The Keeper: The legend of Omar Khayyam) telling me that her aunt journalist Sholeh Sadre had  passed away from cancer. I had the honor of working with her on several radio shows on a weekly basis, reporting on cultural events taking place in Europe and film reviews for her Australian Iranian listeners every wednesday for two consencutive years. We never had the opportunity to ever meet eachother in person despite the long phone calls where her warm voice and professionalism reassured me during our recordings. She will be dearly missed. I extend my heartful condolences to her family and my friend Kayvan and her mother (Sholeh's sister), as well as to all her loyal listeners.

Rest in Peace,

She was a very sweet, classy and enthusiastic person. Too Young to go so quickly and silently.

Thank you for your concern.
