Spend a rare evening in the City that Would Not Die with some of Lebanon's greatest musicians, from yesterday's trad tablahists and today's trip-hopping turntablists to forgotten divas like Siham Rifqi and the country's first singing stand-up comedienne, Ferial Karim.

Dave, it's a new mic CORD, which made a huge diff, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/30/14 7:06pm davex:

Yes, crisper sound, Gary. That must be one fine cord!
Avatar Wed. 7/30/14 7:06pm Gary:

Avatar Wed. 7/30/14 7:07pm Gary:

I had a super-long cord, which I could tell was not very good, especially when I was on Jesse's show. So I made a trip to Guitar Center :)

I've played this song as sampled by Dub Snakkr, but not the original (I never thought I'd run across the original, but actually had it on my computer the whole time!)

To the question of "Do you love this set," my response is yes yes yes!

Hello Gary, Gary's family, & everyone else ! :-)
Just ran in, loving this song..

Amazing stuff so far. I actually have the mp3 of "Hamburguer" courtesy of the 365 Project (which may have been hosted by WFMU?), only the name was spelled 'Philomon Wehbe.'

Unca Mike! Dude, your tomatoes are an inspiration. (I've been watching them grow on FB)

unca mike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/30/14 8:46pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks. I had so many of those sun gold yellow cherry tomatoes that I had to roast some.I wound up with a quart and have been having them on toast with fresh mozzarella, melted under the broiler.
Avatar Wed. 7/30/14 8:47pm Gary:

Extreme jealousy. We have a plant on our balcony, but I have forgotten how long it's been going, and there's still no tomatoes
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/30/14 8:48pm Uncle Michael:

It occurs to me there was no weekly pic this last Saturday because I was in Chicago. I should have made a picture on Sunday before I picked what was ripe.

Hiya Hyde
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/30/14 8:48pm Ike:

Hey folks. I am loving the New Jersey tomatoes that emerge at this time of year. They are sometimes easier to find in Brooklyn than they were in Newark or Bloomfield!

I still have to buy tomatoes for all the gazpacho I make.

and do they shoot noodles out of a tank?

See ya, RevRab! Mike, they're off the Red line ... Lemme Google the stop

Argyle! They're off the Argyle stop.

Then I went right by it. I took the Red Line between Howard and Fullerton both ways.

Did you find la musica, la musica? I assume you can still find great vinyl there ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/30/14 9:09pm Uncle Michael:

I just went to a bar, started drinking, went to a ball game. kept drinking, left the ball game and continued drinking.

It was drinking, slightly interrupted by baseball...but not much.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/30/14 9:12pm listener james from westwood:

My first and only visit to Chicago was 2002. Right around this time of year, in fact. Enjoyed it and left me wanting more. Should fix that sometime soon. UM's drinking-based agenda seems like a sound one to follow.
Avatar Wed. 7/30/14 9:14pm Gary:

I super-heart Chicago. It's pretty danged sweaty in summer, tho, maybe even more so than here
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/30/14 9:15pm Uncle Michael:

I love Chicago. The Fullerton L stop os right in my old neighborhood.

The low point of the evening was a street festival featuring a Dave Matthews cover band.
Avatar Wed. 7/30/14 9:19pm Gary:

Fairuz was 74 or 75 when she recorded this, but who's counting?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/30/14 9:20pm listener james from westwood:

It was 97 degrees one of the days I was out there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/30/14 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

I grew up near the lakefront and that's generally an area that benefit fro cooler air than farther inland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/30/14 9:31pm listener james from westwood:

Must lumber off to bed; will snag the last snippet on the archive. Loved the diversity of music from such a small area, Gary!
Avatar Wed. 7/30/14 9:33pm Gary:

Nighty-night, James ... Thank the Lebanese for creating so much awesomeness over the years, in the face of all they've lived through!
