Hi Rob,
Greetings from Belgium
  Sat. 6/28/08 6:44pm COBRA:

rob, youre the man. one of the best shows on radio
  Sat. 6/28/08 6:47pm Your DJ:

Aw gee, shucks, thanks Cobra. And greetings to you Dirk, from Jersey City. A lovely evening to all...
  Sat. 6/28/08 6:50pm db:

Glad to find you on summer schedule at your usual time Rob. Your timeslot fits the mood, and you program the best world music show I've ever experienced bar none! Keep it up!
  Sat. 6/28/08 6:55pm Your DJ:

Thanks db. I'm glad you feel that way. I've kind of settled into this slot and it also works nicely for the remotes we do from Barbes (and perhaps elsewhere in the future). But as you know the schedule shuffles a couple of times a year and we're always bringing in new blood, so you never know, I may wind up somewhere else down sometime down the road. But other than a few social-calendar and concert sacrifices, I've grown to like this slot quite a bit.
  Sat. 6/28/08 7:12pm Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

I too love your show Rob always have .. you've and WFMU have brought sounds from many lands and INCREDIBLE musicians that can make my weekend and you always do.. PLEASE stay at this slot .. but then again TG for Streaming and PodCasts also A wonderful thing ...
  Sat. 6/28/08 7:18pm db:

Yeah, good point Tom. Why no TPSP podcast? About half of my 'FMU listen is done on ipod. I/we should email Ken with that question/request for a Trans Pacific Sound Podcast.
  Sat. 6/28/08 7:23pm Your DJ:

Regarding podcasts: Thanks for the interest - but regular freeform slots on FMU can't podcast because of music rights issues. Most of the FMU shows that podcast generally don't rely heavily on recorded music.
  Sat. 6/28/08 8:03pm Bob:

Global beat of the Boroughs is one of the awesome CDs of our time. I knew I heard "charanga completa" before but I didn't realize where it was from until you announced it. I got the CD with my annual contrib to a roots cultural organization Citilore (maybe Citylore). During their reasearch they discovered that an inordinate number of famous salsa musicians came from one public school in the South Bronx and organized a reunion concert.. Ray Barreto flew in from wherever he was. Someone else came up from PR. Manny Oquendo took the subway from Queens.

  Sat. 6/28/08 8:08pm Your DJ:

Very interesting... thanks Bob. And yep, it's Citylore - if anyone's curious. Global Beat of the Boroughs was co-produced by the Center for Traditional Music And Dance, another great grassroots org. in NYC,
  Sat. 6/28/08 9:34pm Your DJ:

Audio quiz question answer: Henry Kissinger. I know, that was pretty easy. Congratulations to our winners...
