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.

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

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

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

And here's the story I wrote about that bodega: roadsandkingdoms.com...

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.

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]

I dunno what I was thinking

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm

If I was going to be honest, there's not a whole lot rattling around up there most days

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hey Gary!
Jesse k:

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

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

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!

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

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

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. ;)
