I have Part 1 of this in reserve for the weekend but I am looking forward to Part 2! Between this and Evan's dub-a-thon last night, it has been a very good week for genres I dig!

Loving these sounds! I'd dance, but I don't know how...
  Fri. 7/28/17 9:22am Mark Williams:

i just never think of cocaine and that part of the world together. What sort of punishment should she expect?
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:23am Gary:

Well, probably none -- I glanced over another article that said the authorities were trying to determine whether it was for personal use or not ... presumably personal use would be excused. She was let go ... not sure if she's expected back to go to court or anything, though
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:24am Gary:

... and, HI MARK!
  Fri. 7/28/17 9:25am Mark Williams:

hello Gary. I've not listened to your show before, so I'm happy to make the acquaintance.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:27am Gary:

Thanks for stopping in!

Hi, Gary! Thank you SO much for getting up so early and filling in for me!
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:40am Gary:

Doug! Honored to do so ... I'm usually up by 6, but just not *talking out loud* before 11 am or so ... :)

Hi Gary! Working your way up the Fertile Crescent today?

Good morning Gary. I'm very pleased to be able to catch your show live for a change
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:43am Gary:

Big thanks to Tim Abdellah Fuson and David Larsen who translated this singer's name and album / song titles for me
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:43am Gary:

WebHam Henry! Fred! So nice to see you guys!
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:51am listener james from westwood:

Kicking ass this morning, Gary, both in playlist and in talking out loud earlier than scheduled!
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 9:53am Gary:

Ha ... well, I got another glass of water, so hopefully voice will be more "fluid" next mic break
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 9:54am melinda:

I usually don't begin talking out loud until after 10 or 11 am either, sometimes wonder if it might be a good idea to do a practice vocalization beforehand since I work in retail and don't want to sound croaky when I first speak to a customer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 9:55am melinda:

But it happens.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:00am George from Bristol UK:

I'm catching this middle hour live between other appointments. Equally looking forward to hearing Part Two hour one and hour three over the weekend.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:02am Gary:

George! I owe you a return email, but was frantically scrambling to put this morning's show together ... will respond soon!

Jesse! Hey there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 10:10am Ike:

I don't know about records in Bay Ridge but there's now an Egyptian pizza place called King Tut Pie. One of these days I'll have to try that.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:11am Gary:

Mmm, might have to head out right after the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:11am Polyus:

Hey Gary, can you recommend a particular compilation of Oum Kalthoum's music for the uninformed (me). It seems like most of the stuff I find is out of print or otherwise a pain to acquire.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:14am Gary:

Man, Polyus, that's a tough one. Let me think about it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:16am Polyus:

Obviously there is a ton of stuff YT and such places, but I'd like a physical copy of something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 10:16am Jesse Kaminsky:

I think I downloaded this Cheba Maria song from a blog years ago. What blog could it have been...
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:16am βrian:

À l'écoute ! Good morning.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:20am Brian in UK:

Hello Gary. What part of Morocco does this music come from? Apart from Casablanca.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 10:23am fred:

@Polyus: That's a tough one because so many of her "songs" are quite long. I'd recommend getting Inta Omri, either on its own or as part of a box set. It's a classic
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:25am Gary:

Brian, I don't really know -- let's maybe look up Cheba Maria and see what we can find online ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:27am Polyus:

Thanks fred!

and speaking of Big Pimpin' ...
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:34am Jeff Golick:

...also just trawling the playlist to Flash's dub show last nights. Looks genius.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:34am βrian:

This makes me want to take my habibti to get some lemony hummus.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:35am Gary:

Sweet -- I have to check that show out!
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:37am βrian:

Why, here it is: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 10:38am Ike:

Somebody brought amazing hummus to an FMU party once. It was from a place in Red Hook called Mazzat. Best hummus in NYC that I know of -- but a bit of a pain in the butt to get to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:39am Brian in UK:

Gary, the reason I asked was that we were thinking of going to Morocco sometime and I wondered whether Casablanca, Marrakech, Essaouira or wherever was the home of the hits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:40am Brian in UK:

Ike if you will pardon me saying, you are eating it wrong. (lame attempt at Doug pun)
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:40am Gary:

Ah, well, I'm not entirely sure where the Moroccan music industry is situated ... too bad Tim isn't here this morning; he'd probably have the answer. I do know that Cheba Maria started out in Casablanca before moving to France
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:43am βrian:

You need to go to the Detroit/Ann Arbor area if you want the best hummus.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:43am Gary:

And I need to get there for the CDs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 10:47am Stanley:

Hi Gary and the Gang.
How about some cheesy music from Khartoum like Mohamed Wardi?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:48am doctorjazz:

I feel like I can sing "If I Were a Rich Man" to this
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:48am George from Bristol UK:

To Brian in UK : I recommend Essaouira.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:48am Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 10:51am doctorjazz:

Maybe not (it was true during the instrumental opening)
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:55am Gary:

I don't think Samira will mind, either way, DrJ
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 10:58am βrian:

Maybe it's time for an Essaouira WFMU meetup?
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:00am George from Bristol UK:

Essaouira December or January suits me fine. I know places to stay etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/28/17 11:03am Brian in UK:

George, sounds good, we are in the process of trying to move right now but in the future.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:04am βrian:

Rancid Priapus is a schizophrenic?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 11:06am Ike:

I don't think it's an accident that this all comes across like overheated, overwrought reality TV. It's the final season of The Apprentice -- but this time with nuclear weapons.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:07am Gary:

I vote for the total annihilation of planet earth if it means never having to see Mitch McConnell's face ever again

Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:11am Doug Schulkind:

I'm back from the farmers market. Chilling down from the hot walk with the coolest, Gary S!
  Fri. 7/28/17 11:11am Alex In Illinois:

Scaramouche! Scaramouche! Can you do the Fandago!
Isn't that what Queen sings in Bohemian Rhapsody?
That is what comes to my mind whenever Scaramucci is mentioned.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:13am Gary:

Alex! And, oh, man, Farmers Market in Maine must be edibleincredible
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 11:14am fred:

@Alex: Same here. I blame Ken
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:15am Jeff Golick:

Mitch McConnell's face should be repurposed as a abstinence aid.

Wow, that transition sucked

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/28/17 11:19am Carmichael:

These guys are layin' it down. Maybe they listened to Big Brother or Airplane?
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:20am Gary:

I believe Doug played the first Fadoul ever on FMU -- from a clip found on eBay, right?
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:23am Doug Schulkind:

Good friend to all good music, Adam Lore, the fellow behind 50 Miles of Elbow Room, is the chap who hipped me to the Fadoul audio shared on eBay.

Blues skies over the isthmus today. I can see sailboats on the lake.
Avatar Fri. 7/28/17 11:30am Doug Schulkind:

My body doesn't even dream of bronzing. Pewter, maybe.

I have never heard this cover! I have played Le Cheikh Imam's original dozens of times but never this. This is fantastic.

I wrote about Imam's original for WFMU's blog here: blog.wfmu.org...

Please plan to join me in the next room for (not only) boogie tunes that (mostly didn't) top the charts in 1975!
