Avatar 7:05pm Dan Bodah:

It's a languid yodel. She says yodelayheehoo, then kinda hum-sings it.
  7:06pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

Can I eat you?
Avatar 7:06pm Dan Bodah:

Mr. JBMcF, gnaw.
  7:08pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

I wish I could have come today :(
Avatar 7:10pm Kurt Gottschalk:

people singing yodels without yodeling?
Avatar 7:12pm Dan Bodah:

@KG, yep, something like that. Yodels that never quite got off the ground. Or maybe it's like essential oil of yodel.
Avatar 7:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...croon a yodel, cuddle a cannoli, join the army skip the bail...

who's Huun-Huur-Tu?
Avatar 7:21pm Dan Bodah:

Huun-Huur-Tu are a group of Tuvan musicians, they have been the main ones making Tuvan throatsinging a known thing in the USA.
  7:22pm Cliff:

Hi Dan, loving tonight's show so far. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm foofs:

I dig throatsinging, despite only having one van.
  7:24pm Cliff:

So some Tuvan throat singers connected up with some Bulgarian choirists? Totally amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm chris:

or maybe not joining BT, but rather Chris M, as he fills in for the ailing BT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm maestroso:

I first saw Huun-Huur-tu in Hong Kong in 1994. I've seen them several times since, in different countries including USA.
  7:31pm Cliff:

Whenever I hear Tuvans singing, I always think of Richard Feynman's story about how he and another professor tried to figure out on their own where the hell Tuva was.
  7:31pm JakeGould:

@Ike: How’s your 91.1FM signal over there in Sunset Park? Seems weak in Bay Ridge today.
  7:32pm JakeGould:

@Cliff: Third base.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Ike:

@Jake, it's a little scratchy here today.
  7:33pm JakeGould:

Which Shooby you be?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Rich in Washington:

Dan, I was listening to Balkan music on my commute this morning and thought of your show.
What's that vocal thing in some Balkan music that's like male voices doing something that's similar to Indian vocal approximations of tabla playing? Have you heard it?
  7:34pm Cliff:

Left field?
  7:35pm JakeGould:

@Cliff: I’m not asking you where left field is… Tuva T-U-V-A! Where?
Avatar 7:36pm fearfeasog:

this sounds just like people from our former church speaking in tongues
  7:37pm Cliff:

I know, I was kinda riffing on your joke, but was too drunk to make it work, I guess.
  7:38pm Cliff:

Cuz Why was playing left field, right?
  7:38pm marc15:

  7:39pm JakeGould:

You’re not as think as you drunk you are.
  7:40pm Cliff:

Also, I've been summoned to Rochester this week for an important work meeting, which must've been set up well in advance, but my manager is being coy about which day it will be. It's givin' me hives.
Avatar 7:40pm Dan Bodah:

@Rich, I'm not sure -- if you send me a link or an mp3, I'll see if I can figure it out. Or I'll run it by my wife, she used to direct a Balkan choir.
  7:41pm Cliff:

Good to hear, Jake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wonder if auctioneer vocals have ever been set to music. In a similar vein, how about square dance calling?
  7:42pm Cliff:

It's never a good sign when you're summarily summoned to Rochester out of the blue. It's the Cleveland of Upstate New York, after all.
  7:42pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

Avatar 7:44pm Dan Bodah:

@Ken, yep, they have & they are on deck for a show here, though maybe not tonite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

  7:48pm JakeGould:

Biz!!! Good taste, Dan!
  7:49pm Cliff:

Oh gosh, I must've been in high school the last time I heard Biz Markie on the radio
  7:49pm Mr. Joe Bob McFred:

i'd like to know how to do this someday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Rich in Washington:

Dan - Re: Balkan volcalizations - a track was by Fanfare Ciocărlia, who I think are from Romania. I have no idea it it's a traditional style or not. It was on the Borat soundtrack (I found it for a buck somewhere the other day).
Avatar 7:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

My understanding is - Tabla players have five (?) or so distinct sounds they make that are like two-letter syllables (?) - & part of the tradition of being taught by a master in the uninterrupted line is - you have to be able to vocalize any pattern before you drum it...which is fairly beatbox...

There's a really good documentary on her. It's worth watching. What a fascinating career!
