Dave and Michael, welcome! Be right back with some fresh coffee ...

My mucho-talented costumer sister just costumed a Bollywood film, shot in L.A., which I guess isn't that uncommon anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:56pm listener james from westwood:

I will take this show as my launching (lunching?) point for exploring the Indian joints around this year's record fair locale....

I'm already whistling "Mera Naam" (SP) in anticipation.

hint: one is the crack music lover behind give the drummer radio.
the other is the crack smoking crackpot who runs my city.

Good Evening Everyone. Just checking in; probably won't stay too long. Sounds like a fun evening of Mumbai sound!

.. and Happy Birthday again Doug!.. and hello Jill!

Hi Mom! Will call you after the show if you're still up

Gary....yes, I'll still be up. Talk to later.

Here's a poster for Maya Macchindra: upload.wikimedia.org...
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:13pm Gary:

K.L. Saigal was a huge superstar -- Lata Mangeshkar says that, as a girl, she dreamed of marrying him. Good thing she didn't: He was also quite the alcoholic
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:16pm Gary:

Some of K.L. Saigal's biggest later hits were composed by this guy, Pankaj Mullick ... but here he is in his own voice
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:24pm Gary:

DW Griffith was the guy whose name slipped my mind
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:24pm davex:

Fascinating early stuff, Gary. That poster is by the way actually for the later Telugu film of the same name (hence the Telugu writing, which looks quite different).
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:25pm Gary:

Oh, thanks, good catch, Dave
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:28pm Gary:

This song is from Raj Kapoor's first film, before he teamed up with Shankar & Jaikishan
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:30pm ndbob:

This is great Gary - haven't heard very much of this early material
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:30pm davex:

I wonder how many actors ever sang in their own films, something that does not happen very much if at all today.
  Wed. 5/28/14 7:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Gary, my mom listened to one of my radio shows back when I was in college. On that show, I played this long, amazing nadaswaram duet, and she hated it. She never tuned in again, and that was back in 1980.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:31pm Gary:

Everyone did in the 30s and part of the 40s, Dave
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:32pm Gary:

@Doug: She knew what she liked (and didn't) :)
Avatar    Wed. 5/28/14 7:34pm hyde:

this is great, I don't know any of this stuff at all. I'm reminded that I have seen far, far too few Bollywood movies. (True confession: the only Bollywood movie I've watched this year was Veerana: Vengeance of the Vampire)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:34pm davex:

Thanks, Gary - an early case of modern specialization, apparently.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:36pm Gary:

Some of the people who went on to be big actors: Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis (who was more of a character actor, but ubiquitous) both sang their own stuff in the early 40s -- I was gonna play some, but decided to dial the dork factor down a wee bit :)
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:36pm Gary:

Hyde, I need to see that vampire movie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:38pm davex:

And there are so many movies out there to see...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:39pm davex:

this playlist can double as a must-see list, I suppose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:39pm listener james from westwood:

You could spend some time viewing the films from just 1 decade!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:40pm Gary:

I can vouch for all of the films in this particular set, Dave, definitely
Avatar    Wed. 5/28/14 7:40pm hyde:

@Gary it's pretty entertaining. It has great sets and creepy lighting. Has a Bappi Lahiri soundtrack, too. Supposedly the Ramsay brothers are remaking it in 3D.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:42pm listener james from westwood:

heh, i recognize that bed music!
Avatar    Wed. 5/28/14 7:47pm hyde:

ah, finally here's one I know. love that Geeta Dutt.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:47pm Gary:

Sounds awesome, Hyde -- where did you find it?
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:49pm Gary:

This one goes out to Doug -- happy birthday!
Avatar    Wed. 5/28/14 7:51pm hyde:

@Gary I got the disk from Netflix. Mondo Macabro put it out a couple years ago. They've remastered for DVD a few other Bollywood horror flicks over the years, but this is the first one I've seen. I need to get to work on some of the others....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 7:52pm davex:

It's easy to find many of these films on YouTube, but few of them seem to have subtitles.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:52pm Gary:

Thanks, I'll see if Netflix Streaming has it, too!
  Wed. 5/28/14 7:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Where's the "like" button on this thing?
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:58pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary! catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 7:59pm Gary:

Have a great night, Bob!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:00pm Gary:

Coming up, one of my all-time favorite duets ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:01pm davex:

I will need to call it an "early" night myself, and will definitely be heading for the archives very soon. Thanks, Gary, good night everyone - and hope you get a like button for your birthday, Doug.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:03pm Gary:

See you soon, Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:04pm listener james from westwood:

Stellar stuff thus far!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:05pm Gary:

Glad you're enjoying, James!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:06pm forestriver:

This is awesome. I've been obsessed with bollywood since I saw some incredible music videos at a surprisingly good indian restaurant in Rapid City, SD. Thanks for the exposé
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:07pm Gary:

Welcome, Forestriver!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:09pm listener james from westwood:

The funny thing is, most of the Indian restaurants I've been to in NJ play not Bollywood tunes but schmaltzy Subcontinent-influenced piano-driven Muzak. I'd gladly go for the music videos!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:11pm forestriver:

I'll drop a link to one of the ones I saw here: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:13pm listener james from westwood:

Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:14pm forestriver:

You're welcome. It's seriously pop music, but an interesting story and sound nonetheless
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:15pm Gary:

I'll take a look after the show, ForestRiver -- thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/28/14 8:18pm Uncle Michael:

This is pretty.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:19pm Gary:

You wouldn't think so from this song, Michael, but the film is devastatingly depressing (in a good way, though)
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:23pm Gary:

The scene in which this song appears involves a dwarf, guys in "Latin" costumes and a whip
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:23pm northguineahills:

Forgot to say, Hello. Hello, Gary!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:24pm Gary:

Well, howdy, NGH!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:26pm Gary:

While I can't strongly recommend this film, I can totally completely and absolutely assure you that you'll more than enjoy this scene if you look it up on YouTube
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:26pm listener james from westwood:

Avatar    Wed. 5/28/14 8:27pm hyde:

I always imagine that I'll get some reading done during this show, and then I spend three hours googling stuff I hear
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:37pm Gary:

I think I included this song on this Bollywood comp I put together for the blog: bodegapop.blogspot.com...
  Wed. 5/28/14 8:43pm !.!:

Howdy, !.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:49pm listener james from westwood:

Love love love this cut!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 8:50pm listener james from westwood:

Once again, I have no idea where I'd have ever first heard Bollywood cuts famous and obscure if I hadn't been introduced to WFMU. (Maybe in the opening credits of "Ghost World," but I'm not sure I would've seen that film had I not been an FMU lis'ner.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/28/14 8:55pm Ike:

Just got here. "Duniya Mein" -- what a song -- supremely bonkers beyond belief!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 8:56pm Gary:

Hola, Ike -- come on in, more bonking gonna happen!

Been here the whole time, but I'm still indulging in post-Memorial day cleaning, and I didn't even have any guests.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 9:21pm Gary:

This is not an attempt at a bad joke, but I honestly don't remember what I did on Memorial Day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 9:22pm listener james from westwood:

I nursed a cold and proofread an unintelligible book.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 9:25pm Gary:

The film this song is from was a knock-off of Streets of Fire
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 9:26pm Gary:

Oh, right; I remember now. I applied for unemployment and helped my GF plant tomatoes on the balcony
