    I am a pink Floyd fan like other Iranians and as far back as I can remember , I love this topic of discussion , just want to add that since I was in middle school around 12 years old up to graduation from high school , there was a program on radio around 6:30 am by the name of ” Taghvim Tarikh” or “History Calendar” the opening song for this program was the intro drum piece for “Time” song by Pink Floyd. a very wise choice for a radio program.
