Inspired by Charles King's ridiculously entertaining book on Istanbul between the two World Wars, we'll play some of our favorite Turkish tracks, mostly from the dozens of CDs we've collected over the years from Uludag Video in Brooklyn and elsewhere.

...as I often think - a different kind of Soul Music...stuff like this Suzan Yakar just works for me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Gary:

Some of it is painfully soulful (in a good way)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm melinda:

Very soulful. Almost heard a tarzan yodel in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- a pre-microphone idiom, for certain...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm steve:

this is some heavy stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Gary:

RevRab, the photo that precedes "The Past Is a Wound in My Heart" is of a woman singing -- using a megaphone
  7:41pm Dean:

After a cursory search, I think that Music of the Balkans was at least at one time a product of FM Records, a Greek label that appears fairly vibrant these days: http://fmrecords.net/label/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Gary:

Hi, Dean! Yes, it is -- I have it as part of a three-CD box set, FM Records is on the packaging
Avatar 7:51pm ndbob:

ah Roza
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Gary:

This is also from FM ... Roza Eskenazi was Greek, born in Constantinople
Avatar 7:53pm ndbob:

yep Gary - the big exodus fro Turkey into Greece - and Roza was Jewish too - as were a few Rebetiko singers
  7:56pm Dean:

My maternal grandfather might have taken that route. Nobody in the family is quite sure...

I'm about two hours into a six-hour job copying files from a backup hard drive after my entire digital library crashed and burned. Thanks for helping to soothe my terror-drenched evening, Gary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gary:

Hyde! Doug! Holy bejeebus, Doug -- this is why I have TWO backups
Avatar 8:51pm hyde:

@Doug yikes! i have two bakups too for this reason and most stuff i still burn to dvd because i'm ultra paranoid (even those are a lousy long term storage medium. i just can't help myself.)
  8:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Well I have one physical backup and one cloud backup. Still terrified. Terrifried, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Gary:

What was it that crashed, Doug? Your computer? Or external HD?
  8:59pm Doug Schulkind:

External HD.
Avatar 8:59pm hyde:

i gotta move everything to the cloud too. i've been cheaping out because money is tight at present, but that is sheer idiocy on my part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Gary:

I am deathly afraid of the cloud
Avatar 9:03pm hyde:

i don't trust the cloud because it isn't even a cloud, it's just racks and racks of metal and silicon!
  9:10pm Doug Schulkind:

You're not helping, hyde.

heh, my bad!

Hi, Anne! You and me both

İbrahim Tatlıses's first album -- he sounds very young to me b/c most of what I have is from the 90s & 2000s
  9:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Such soulful sounds, I say about every Bodega Pop Live selection ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Gary:

I judge all music by the same scientific system: How hard does it make me cry after 2 beers?

enjoying the music tonight.

i Love this track by Gülen.
Avatar 9:35pm hyde:

@Gary do have a weepometer that measures that scientifically?

amazing, thanks Gary
Avatar 9:59pm hyde:

how can it already be over? oh yeah, i was really late. thanks for the show!
Avatar 10:00pm coelacanth:

Thanks Gary! -'made me sad a little, missing my turkish friends that have all gone back home.

Great show

Thanks, Leather, Coelacanth, Hyde, Steve, everyone!
Avatar 1:43am Brian in UK:

Gary, time differences forces me to miss the show but I thought you might like to see some images by Ara Guler that evoke an Istanbul in the past.
