Sounds ripped from cassettes & CDs found in immigrant-run mom & pop stores. Deconstructed icons. Field recordings. Sonic mayhem from the far corners of the internet.

Off to London next week, which record stores do I need to hit? Honest John's and what else?

@Polyus, do a search on Yelp for records in the SoHo area, trust me!

Yesterday Kurt advised me to recount record hunting stories to you, Gary. Rather than clutter the comment board here, I'll refer you to http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/68854 @4:15pm, @4:17pm, and @4:27pm. Kurt's prompt is @4:19pm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Gary:

Ha, okay; will do, Dean ... but even recycled stories are welcomed here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Gary:

Looking at your stories now, Dean ... you know, you popped in just now while I'm playing what is literally one of the very first CDs I ever found in a bodega in NYC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Gary:

And here's the story I wrote about that bodega: roadsandkingdoms.com...
  7:32pm Dean:

I always thought I'd remember the provenance of every record I ever bought. Nope.

I read that story!

I visited an Indian spice shop (that's what I call it, but it's really a market with a wide range of products of interest to the Indian community here) last weekend to purchase black and white peppercorns. On a couple walls behind the register is arrayed a display of CDs of Indian music, mostly pop. I need to spend quality time there.

Oh this Awiha - it's heartbreaking though about Syria - but that's the reality...

Nice to see you, Glenn and RevRab ... and, yes, I am in love with Asala

Hey, Tim
  7:45pm Dean:

Story said $20/5, a bargain.

Yes! That makes more sense, Dean

love the piano sample in this one
Avatar 7:56pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary - catch the rest later!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Gary:

See ya soon, Bob -- and totally agree, Hyde
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Gary:

Okay, I greeted everyone *without* using exclamation points for once. But it didn't feel right. So I am going to go back to ... exclamation points!!!!!!!!!<-----------[infinity]

continue to punctuate as desired
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Gary:

I dunno what I was thinking
Avatar 8:02pm glenn:

yeah, gary. what were you thinking?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Gary:

If I was going to be honest, there's not a whole lot rattling around up there most days
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm northguineahills:

This is definitely not a road trip I'd want to take right now (except Amman), Maybe 10 years ago.

I'm flaking out on account of baseball - 1st set sounded great, Gary. Catch y'all later!

Avatar 9:11pm geezerette:

Fantastic show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Gary:

Geezerette! Hyde! I was wondering if I might have cleared the room
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Gary:

That sudden loss of sound was my cat tearing the cord out of my computer ... Grrr ...
Avatar 9:15pm hyde:

i am so tired from my moving thing that i tend to get totally distracted at night; figured maybe i should chime in after an hour just for good measure.

this show is a good soundtrack for my mindset, though. also, i sort of admire your cat for occasionally terrorizing the show.
Avatar 9:15pm geezerette:

Been lurking/working but super digging it. (hmmm,exclamation point or happy face...? :D!!!...both.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Gary:

Thanks, guys -- that cat is insane. He wants to play fetch-the-mouse and he's not taking no for an answer
  9:21pm Jesse k:

Hey Gary!
  9:21pm Jesse k:

Don't withhold the mouse
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Gary:

Jesse! I was just thinking about you (during the DJ Pinch & Islam Chipsy) tune -- it sounded like something that would fit in on KK
Avatar 9:22pm geezerette:

I love cats. They're all half wild no matter what.

hyde,hope you're almost settled in. No fun shlepping but feels so good when you're set up again. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Gary:

Unboxing is worth the hell of moving
Avatar 9:23pm geezerette:

  9:25pm Jesse k:

I just got home and must have missed it. Just tuned in moments ago, I'll check the archives!
Avatar 9:25pm geezerette:

I so want middle-eastern food right now.
Avatar 9:26pm Parq:

Enjoying the show, Gary.
Avatar 9:27pm Parq:

(Yes, I know, that was probably the most banal comment ever, but it's been a long day and I'm tuckered.)

Just read the Syrian Bodega piece. Fine work. Whatever happened to your friend with the RIAA legal problems?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Gary:

Oh, he's fine -- he went to Yale, got an art degree, and is now a semi-famous photographer
Avatar 9:47pm hyde:

haha, thanks geezerette. another couple weeks of long workdays followed by weekends of boxing. will be pretty crusty 'til i can get a few days off. ;)

Love this reworking of soleil soleil!
