  9:23am annie:

Nothing wrong with those answers annie.
  9:44am stingy d:

i know the one...
  9:44am Ne-guh-tor:

  9:44am stingy d:

timbaland has said he's never heard of techno music.
  9:44am Bad Ronald:

mecca lecca hie mecca heinie ho. mecca lecca hie mecca chonny ho!
  9:45am Parq:

12. Yes.
  9:46am Parq:

@Bad Ron: Pretty fly.
  9:47am Cheri Pi:

Hilarious! Unofficial boycott of Timbaland.-that's unforgivable.
  9:47am stingy d:

rip pimp c!
  9:47am jk:

and then there's this track from an upcoming Urdu film, "composed" by Anoop Rubens
  9:48am annie:

13. paul reubens
  9:48am Bad Ronald:

  9:49am jk:

13. Anoop Rubens
  9:50am stingy d:

@ cheri- if you are referring to me:
i forget the interview... but he was asked if he was influenced by techno, and he refused to acknowledge its existence, by way of having never heard of it.
  9:53am Cheri Pi:

So he composes music in a vacuum, denying all outside influences-that's classy.
  9:54am stingy d:

yea. kinda like how we can't even discuss hip-hop the way jason wants to engage us, because krs-one is the creator of all things, and he does not recognize us as his pupils, thus we do not exist.
  9:55am postmanpaul:

I used to buy my tapes from The Friday Market, just down from Salaḥ ad-Din's Palace. They were sold beneath the fly-over, between the bird/snake market and fravelling story-tellers' children who would leap thru burning hoops all afternoon...
  9:56am jk:

Preggy Peggy is playing this saturday in Boston if anyone else lives up here.
  9:59am annie:

(those are the twenty answers, jason. i'm not done with the test yet. hope i pass.)
  10:01am dc pat:

15. Tottenham 1, West Ham 0
  10:03am postmanpaul:

That's not so much an answer but more a foregone conclusion dc pat. But you are not wrong, therefore I will accept it.
  10:05am jk:

great show today Jason!
  10:05am olgu:

amazing show Jason, thankssss!
  10:06am annie:

16. to reach the other side
  10:07am postmanpaul:

That would translate into Egyptian Arabic as; Zamelek 1 Ahly 0.
  10:11am annie:

i've always wondered what contemporary cultures listen to for music.. this has been really great. i've got to get my short wave radio back
  10:11am jason:

later on we'll hear some contemporary sha'abi music from Egypt and dabke from Syria
  10:12am postmanpaul:

Jason, an Egyptian artist friend introduced me to this dj's work while I was over there. While not being Egyptian, his music reminds me of trips into the Sinai...
  10:13am seang:

memphis, egypt
  10:15am J-Mar:

Digging the show, Jason, as I work diligently at my desk!
  10:16am Bad Ronald:

17. Burning Bush
  10:17am postmanpaul:

Love to hear the women scream/yoddeling like that Jason! I believe it's called Zaggerahya.
  10:18am annie:

17. mesopotamia
18. hendrik willem van loon
  10:19am postmanpaul:

Sorry Bad Ronald - the answer to no 17. should have been '40 Days and 40 Nights'.
  10:20am Bad Ronald:

Dammit, I was gonna say that. Is there a consolation prize?
  10:21am stingy d:

  10:21am annie:

20. 1001 Arabian nights
  10:23am pierre:

"the one who don't have faith, is a liar, and turn around himself"
  10:24am annie:

(i counted BR's as 19)
  10:27am postmanpaul:

Will be back to mark your paper soon annie. I, aghhm, note that some of your cleverererer class mates may have lent a hand.
  10:32am annie:

...... so, you noticed the notes being passed?? crap!
  10:36am jason:

hope everybody's cool with the scratchiness of these records
  10:36am dc pat:

more scratches!
  10:38am Bad Ronald:

So I guess PostmanPaul is our Cairo Proctor... *ducks barrage of projectiles**
  10:38am annie:

oh yeah scratch away!!!
  10:40am Joe McG:

Bring the (surface) noise, Jason! This sounds amazing.
  10:40am annie:

BR- that's not as bad as the brick joke, not at all..
  10:41am Cecile:

Great stuff.
My take on reissuing stuff w/o permission is to try to find the person, and keep trying to find the person, even after the record is issued.

Barring that, keep it in a super-limited edition.
  10:44am Cecile:

that's what the guys at a couple of labels around here do, and they've done OK by that.
  10:46am Ne-guh-tor:

Cecile-Agreed. I think the artifact is more important than the artist and, in some cases, will outlive even the artists total existence! Shit. That 'What a Wonderful World' song that Louis A. hated he couldn't even remember. When he was told that it had hit No. 1 he couldn't remember what song it was. After he heard it he was quoted as saying, "Oh, that piece of shit!"
  10:47am Cecile:

Yes, but there has to be due diligence. And that takes work. I know how hard these guys have worked to find people. It's a respect thing.
  10:49am dc pat:

this is a KILLER show, thanks Jason
  10:50am postmanpaul:

Mohammed, hail me a Faluka!
Exceptional sound-scape Jason.
  10:51am Cecile:

what are record stores like in Cairo? I envision them draped with fabric, a beaded curtain separating the front from the back. Reality's probably a lot different, hunh?
  10:56am jason:

well this place Mazzika was more of an antique shop, in a mall-ish building with open-air stairwells/hallways, upstairs, a few different rooms. more photos on the way to the playlist
  10:57am postmanpaul:

As Jason is probably aware Cecile, they do not exist as we know them. If at all.
  11:02am postmanpaul:

Was the mall Arcadia, op' Zamalek Jason?
We used to catch bands with 'traditional' swarthy young male crooners performing in the cafe upstairs in Maadi... You're excelling yourself Jason.
  11:02am Rodney:

Ok, this Arabic baby song with the latin backbeat is killing me. Kind of amazing.
  11:03am Cecile:

Nice, Jason. So, records are just sold with everything else? That sounds like a good way to go.
  11:06am jk:

hot song!.
I think this is posted on radiodiffusion, no?
  11:06am Rob W:

Comparing notes - there are certainly music shops and stalls in cities in Morocco but it's all bootleg cds and still some cassettes, and tend to be fairly similar from one to the next. Marrakech actually has a section with larger "distributor" shops. Not all that different from going into an Indian music shop in Jackson Heights or Jersey City, say. There must be similar in Cairo. One question would be whether it's all bootleg or some legit. Turkey on the other hand, at least Istanbul and Ankara, is totally different, more legit shops (not bootleg), shops are more diverse in character and orientation - much more like Europe or here.
  11:10am umm hafi:

in my experience, egyptians are more of the we-listen-to-music-from-our-cell-phones types, not so much record-buying types (the former is much cheaper for most people), so the only place to find vinyl is in antique shops where people who care about old stuff work.
  11:12am still b/p:

Loved those organ-ic selections. Have to go back later for tracks missed due to work interference. Nice, nice show.
  11:12am Cecile:

thanks, that's giving me a much better picture.

This particular song's chorus could be lifted for a great hip=hop hook. Just putting it out there.
  11:18am fanasonic:

One killer track after another. You would be a gold mine in the Sublime Frequencies catalogue. I am glad you photographed those beat up 45's because this is how they sell them. Beat up therefore overpriced but so worth it. Thank you for sharing.
  11:19am postmanpaul:

Sony started making in-roads in Egypt a while back... I found some kiosks selling amazing Egyptian street/trad tapes in central Cairo, some market stalls and bootleg music tapes and gamecd's in the newer stores. Umm hafi is right about the listening culture, or culture of listening.
While I was there, internet accessed music kept me in touch with the contemporary outside-Egypt music world. They were pre-me-discovering-'fmu-days :(
  11:20am stingy d:

new sound.... just because
  11:20am QSP:

scratchy 45s!
  11:21am gob bluth:

  11:21am DJ KurtG:

more scratchy 45s!!

(hi jason)
  11:21am Ne-guh-tor:

  11:21am dc pat:

more scratchy!
  11:21am annie:

  11:21am Mark in cbus:

Me likes the old school stuff
  11:22am gob bluth:

although this one playing now is pretty awesome
  11:22am QSP:

and itchy too!
  11:24am jason:

ok more scratchy on the way...!
  11:25am still b/p:

We'd sell our souls to Old Scratch!
  11:26am Johnny Gato:

I like the scratches scratching!
  11:26am Rob W:

Jason, you must revisit a few of these scratchy singles for Singles Going Steady week if we do that again at record fair time (just a month away now) - ! And gee, maybe we can recruit Volunteer Olgu to play some more Turkish / Anatolian Rock 45s as she did on Joe McG's show a few weeks ago - !
  11:27am jason:

Rob -- yes! that was a great Surface Noise w/ Olgu. my plan is to digitize these and post 'em on the blog
  11:30am Cecile:

oh, that's great, Jason. Looking forward to it.
  11:32am umm hafi:

yess, these scratchy libyan bedouin jams are my fave!
  11:34am Rob W:

Jason, I second Cecile, you're a Mensch!
  11:44am Panda:

Scratchy. :) -- I think the wiry eastern boys, from syria to armenia and angling down to india, are the absolute cutest in the whole world with their shaggy hair and various nose shapes and pretty lips. I'm a girl and I like those cute boys and I want everyone to know about it.
  11:44am annie:

PMP!! i have the bonus question's answer:
  11:46am postmanpaul:

Alhamdulillah annie! I am assuming you meant shishkebibble.
  11:49am annie:

only on the barbie, PMP
  11:51am Ike:

Hell of a show, Jason!
  11:52am postmanpaul:

Jason, sounds like you avoided the Celine Dion/Sade experience there.
  11:52am stingy d:

you should play some araabmuzick...
  11:56am olgu:

Looking forward to re-listening to this show from the archives as i'm constantly getting distracted at work. Great sounds Jason!
  12:00pm stingy d:

i just pulled what appears to be a cat's claw out of my neck...
  12:00pm north guinea hills:

Jason is correct about the United Arab Republic.
Good show Jason!
  12:01pm postmanpaul:

Thanks Jason, enjoyed very very much.
