Wow, this small-ensemble early stuff is awesome. For a minute, I thought I was hearing Fatna Bent al Houcine and Ouled Ben Aguida :)

Gary, where did you find these recordings?

Moi aussi
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 7:21pm Gary:

I got some of them in Bay Ridge, some in my neighborhood, and some via discogs--this set, anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 7:21pm Gary:

Some of the other things we'll hear tonight also came from Paris, Geneva, and Academy Records on 18th Street, in addition to Bay Ridge and Steinway

Nice!

The male voice you're hearding is Asmahan's brother Farid (pictured to left with his sister and their mother)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 7:46pm Gary:

We get just Farid from here on out on this track, but I thought it was worth playing for those stellar high notes from the sis

It's really awesome!

I'm looking at Egyptian cuisine while I'm listening to this episode and it's making me very hungry! :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 7:50pm Gary:

The CD this next one comes from I found at Daff and Raff, a terrific store in Harvard Square. I think it was 1996 or 97 when I found it. The store, which sold Arabic books and records, had a short life, and was replaced by an English-language bookstore. Now, I don't know what is there. I contacted a guy who has been photographing Harvard Square for years, and he hadn't heard of the place.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 7:55pm hyde:

i can't say i remember that place either
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 7:56pm still b/p:

I was in there once about 20 years ago. Think I picked up something ornamental, and not sure but it might be where -- extra relevance points this evening -- I got my only Oum Kalthoum recording, a cassette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 7:57pm Gary:

Bp! Aha, someone else has been there
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 7:58pm LambdaCalculus:

I wonder if there are any nice Arab bookstores in NYC?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 8:08pm Gary:

I haven't ever seen one. I've seen books here and there, but not a whole bookstore
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 8:12pm tim abdellah:

Oh, be still my beating heart!!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 8:13pm hyde:

52 JFK. i think there's a tea shop there now. i remember when Harvard Square had like 10+ different bookstores. only a couple are left.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 8:15pm LambdaCalculus:

It's a shame that everything cool and out there is vanishing. :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 8:19pm Gary:

Speaking of great things closing -- there used to be an Oum Kalthoum cafe in Paris. I went there one afternoon and hung out until evening ... but when I looked it up recently, I see that it's closed :(
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 8:23pm LambdaCalculus:

Awww, man! :(

"She and the audience would feed off of each other...," much like Insane Clown Posse and their fans.

I clearly remember a first time hearing OK decades ago, but I don't remember the exact circumstances. Probably radio.
