Twelfth edition of an annual holiday tradition: Rob Weisberg and Katie Gentile (Rob's longtime sidekick, academic, author, open-water swimmer and violinist in the band The Special Pillow and formerly The Mad Scene and Run On) play "radio ping-pong", alternating tracks. Rob bounces rock-tinged world music off Katie's classic indie rock.

Zats....I must go outside for a little exercise. Will you be playing any Kyrgyz sounds tonight, Rob & Katie?

I hope there will be Kyrgyz sounds

Love sounds wonderful.

ha ha! talk about unrecognisable covers! cool!
Avatar Sat. 8/31/13 6:17pm Rob & Katie:

Good evening everyone! Er... decent chance of Kazakh but not sure about Kyrgyz tonight...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/31/13 6:38pm doca:

and hello katie!

Hi from Maryland! I ate Kyrgyz food recently here:
Good stuff. It was similar to Uzbek.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/31/13 6:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Comcast was out here - presumably due to weather
- so esp. delightful to be here now, starting w/ this great 'Turtle' track...

Kyrgyzstan.. a spelling you could never guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/31/13 6:53pm Ike:

in the lost depths of Maryland
Comcast, the evil ones, lurk,
relishing their sinister monopoly,
cackling, their tentacles
clutching vast coins they have sucked
Oh, Comcrap,
how I'd rather gnaw bricks,
breaking all my teeth, slowly,
than ever move back somewhere
that YOU have a monopoly.
And my parents stick to the lamest DSL
in the universe
just to avoid thee,
oh, Comcrap.

- well - they usually keep me well-connected
...& their service people on the phone in India are exemplary
- but tech-savvy people tell me paying for Internet in the 1st place is a bit of a scam...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/31/13 7:05pm Ike:

I enjoy the co. of many Indians, and love their food, but often dislike talking to them on the phone. You can say lots of terrible things about Cablevision (Optimum), the NJ-dominant cabler, which I've had in the past -- but interestingly, they have real Noo Yawk accents, none of this impenetrably-accented India stuff. I think their call center must be on Lawn Guyland or Yonkers or some other richly-accented place. Of course, if an Indian in India had to talk to a call center full of NYers, they might say much the same thing. And perhaps will, 100 years from now.

I have a wonderful recording of a beautiful Greek singer, lute player I must send to you..
Avatar Sat. 8/31/13 7:07pm Rob Weisberg:

Oh gee thanks Marmalade Kitty, I would love to hear that!
  Sat. 8/31/13 7:12pm Marmalade Kitty:

Her name is, Maria Kai Filoi. (oops, my translation of the greek alphabet isn't the greatest)
