What time is it, six or seven hours ahead?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 9:23pm David D:

Thankfully only six - so 3:23 right now. But I enjoy this time of night, so it's perfect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 2/14/17 9:25pm Uncle Michael:

Radio Blau has sufficient studio spaces for you to use one for these non-Blau hours, I take it. I'm guessing not a lot of people are lining up to do production at 3:23 AM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 9:29pm David D:

Sure, I have two studios at my disposal - always good to have a back-up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 2/14/17 9:30pm Uncle Michael:

I know someone that's a founding member of one of the groups featured on the Rough Guide to Klezmer. David Julian Grey of the Klezmorim.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 9:33pm David D:

I'll have to look for that, don't recall the track off-hand. Where are they based?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 2/14/17 9:35pm Uncle Michael:

David's no longer active in the group, as far as I know. They were formed in Berkeley. David works for NPR now, in New York.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 9:38pm David D:

There is a lot of klezmer music and the like here as well - especially in Berlin.

Wow, your friend plays a lot of instruments - I like it! Will look for some of their stuff later...

What does he do at NPR -is it something connected to his music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 2/14/17 9:53pm Uncle Michael:

No, he's involved with massive projects to do with their digital archives. His title is something like Digital Audio Systems Administrator.
