Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:18pm Gary:

Hyde! You missed the amazing Oum Kalthoum performance .... but there will be other things
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:21pm Jill B.:

Hey Gary,
Just tuning in while I fix dinner. great sounds!
Avatar    Wed. 4/20/16 8:22pm hyde:

thank god for other things. i hate to miss out.
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:22pm Gary:

Ha, Mom, you came at the worst possible time! But, don't worry, we're going back to the older music after this track
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:23pm David:

Gary, did you identify the singer in the photo?
After studying old photos I believe her to be نجاة الصغيره
Nagat who you played a while ago.
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:24pm Gary:

David, I wasn't sure ... it doesn't look like Nagat to me, but it also doesn't look like anyone else I might identify, either ... what leads you to believe it's here, btw? Maybe you're seeing something I'm not!
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:25pm Jill B.:

Yes, rap....not my thing. But.........
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:33pm David:

She's listed as Najat Al Saghira on Wikipedia..
check out the photo there. Anyway she and Shadia may still be alive
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:35pm Gary:

Oh, cool -- I'll go check -- and yes, she's still with us!
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:38pm Gary:

Ah, that photo of her looks like the woman to the left, yes ... here is what she looks like on all of the CDs I have: ara.xoom.it...
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:43pm David:

Nice! Do you have a favorite Arabic spot where you get music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 8:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

How to articulate why this kind of Egyptian/Arabic Music speaks to me? I love the energetic rhythm - the powerful modal soul...

  Wed. 4/20/16 8:46pm David:

Ha! I was correcting myself
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 8:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wull - I'm also a David...or should I say Dawud...
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:48pm Gary:

It's amazing, I totally agree, RevRab ... and you know, I got asked a lot whether or not I speak Arabic when I bought a lot of this stuff ... which I don't, obviously. But some found it odd that you could really just connect with the music and not the lyrics
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:48pm David:

And I was born in '63 too ^-^
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:49pm Gary:

David ... do you mean online or a bodega?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 8:52pm coelacanth:

good evening Gary and Bodegettes
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:53pm David:

By the way Cleveland's Arabian radio program is 6-8pm

Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:53pm Gary:

There's only one place in New York I know of that still sells Arabic music, and that's the Nile Deli on Steinway Street.

Yes! That's the one!
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 9:41pm Gary:

Speaking of covers, lemme see if I can find this Latifa cover for you guys ... if so, i'll post it at the bottom of the playlist
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:42pm listener james from westwood:

Been happily proofreading along to tonight's program, and I've starred it for future accompaniment sometime down the line!
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 9:43pm Gary:

Glad we could help out, James! I have trouble editing while listening to WFMU ... sometimes I can do it, other times it's distracting and I need quiet
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 9:45pm Gary:

Here, by the way, is a pretty amazing blog filled with nothing but Baligh Hamdi-written tracks: balighhamdy.blogspot.com
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 9:45pm Gary:

The quality of the MP3s fluctuates wildly, tho
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 9:52pm Gary:

Here's what we're listening to right now: 3.bp.blogspot.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:56pm Ike:

I usually do light proofreading to WFMU, but it's just titles and metadata and such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:57pm coelacanth:

Thanks Gary!
'night folks.
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 9:58pm tim abdellah:

This Latifa is very nice! I only knew her from her more poppy stuff a few years back: www.amazon.com...
