I remember watching this show one Friday Night I think on National TV. I don't quite remember when it took place. Was it for NowRooz or some other national holliday or simply on one of those Friday Night Shows ?

Ramesh appeared in the public mind as more mature and stable as a woman than Googoosh who often made headlines in the newspapers for her divroces and make ups with her successive husbands or boyfriends. The irony was that both Googoosh and Ramesh were best of friends in real life very much like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles but in the press were shown as rivals.

I remember Ghatebeh especially for his appearance on Mohandess Billy Shows. He made my French mother laugh so much each time she saw him on TV. He could display all the funny aspects in our culture and at the same time remain very popular. Although very different  he nevertheless strangely  reminds of of John Cleese of the Monty Python but in the Fawlty Towers by being both absurdly funny and cruel at the same time but utterly ridiculous which makes us forgive him.  ;0)

Especially here: 


I'm happy he is still alive. I thought he was dead long ago.

Warm Regards and Happy Yalda,

Dear Darius, thanks. Growing up, Ramesh was my favorite singer.

Darius jan, thanks for posting this video.  I loved Ramesh growing up.  This is great video, Ramesh singing one of her famous songs and the audience are truly enjoying themselves.  Ghatebeh is not such a bad dancer either.  Was that Ghatebeh who used to say:"Albateh dar shahr peeshnehadati shodeh bood."?
