The first English-only Muslim radio station of its kind in the Western world plans to devote an entire show Wednesday to address what the owner calls an "avalanche of anti-Islam comments" in reaction to an story about the station's Irvine debut.

"We didn't expect so much negative comments...," the station's owner Nour Matar said. "We want to expand this dialogue and invite people to listen and connect with us."

At noon, will host Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' Anaheim office.

Ayloush plans to speak about Islam and the importance of blogging, hoping to educate and continue the dialogue with non-Muslims and those in the Muslim community.
