Trafficking in CDs indeed! (My mantra and quest) Viva Le' CDs!!!!

Circo! howdy!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Just starting in on my second lobster of the evening. Purchased from a boat that is floating about 200 yards from our house. Lovely soundtrack, Mr Sullivan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Gary:

Oh, man -- my only experience of eating lobster in Maine was on a very chilly wet April day on the coast -- fun, but not exactly relaxing ... hi, Doug! Happy vacationing to you and yours!
Avatar 7:17pm hyde:

whoa, i was posting in the future
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Gary:

Now when I call call attendance and you say "present," it'll have even more meaning, Hyde!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Doug Schulkind:

The sun is escaping and it's quite cool now. But the 30-40 lobster boats that are bobbing in the nearby water are all still catching the light, emanating warmth. That and the streaming corn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Gary:

A lovely image

Here's the present singer, by the way, the man who popularized sha'abi: www.discogs.com...

@Doug sounds nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm melinda:

hi everyone
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Doug Schulkind:

I meant steaming corn of course. You can take the boy out of the stream, but you can't the stream out of the boy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Gary:

Stream on, Doug! Hey, Melinda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm northguineahills:

Doug, this is supposed to be a family friendly show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Gary:

The family that streams together, NGH!

what up? besides the usual trump fuckup of the day, of course.

Ha, hey Glenn!

Salaam Alaikum, y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Nardo:

I heard you were streaming Korn over here, but I'm glad that I'm wrong about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Gary:

Nardo! Tim!
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:12pm tim abdellah:

That Zeina Hamiyeh was kickin'!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Gary:

I know -- I love, love, love that guitar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm melinda:

Great sounds.
Avatar 8:23pm hyde:

@melinda agreed
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:24pm tim abdellah:

WTF!? This is the melody from Warda's glorious hit "Batwanes Beek". But this is Hasni singing Algerian rai lyrics over the melody, apparently. Whoa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Gary:

Glad you guys are enjoying this stuff -- this is pretty much the music that changed my mind about ... everything
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Gary:

Whaaaa ? Tim, can you find a YouTube vid or other audio for me check out after the show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gary:

Never mind, I found it: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:30pm tim abdellah:

www.youtube.com... One of my favorite pieces of music ever recorded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gary:

Thanks, Tim!
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:40pm tim abdellah:

1) God I love this early Khaled!!
2) Yeah I have that Ouled Bouazzaoui on cassette. Good stuff.
3) It's worth listening to the full 13 minute version of "Batwanes Beek". The first YouTube link looks like an edit. The opening instrumental prelude is so lovely. play.anghami.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Gary:

Will definitely give that a listen after the show
  8:42pm Jill B,:

Hey Gary,

Checking in for a few minutes. How goes it? Please send your new address.......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Gary:

Tim, do you need this whole early Khaled album DropBoxed to you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Gary:

Hi, Mom! So nice to see you! I owe you a call -- will try you tomorrow ... and of course will send address
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Ike:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gary:

Avatar 8:49pm glenn:

you're supposed to let your mom know your address before you move, gary. everybody knows that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Gary:

I thought I did, but ... *sigh*
Avatar 8:52pm hyde:

she's probably not mad, just disappointed
Avatar 🇰🇷 8:55pm tim abdellah:

Gary - Thanks - I actually grabbed that Khaled off BodegaPop a while back. And stumbled on a $4 copy of this at Amoeba in Berkeley a few months ago. I believe it's the same collection of songs: www.allmusic.com...
Avatar 8:56pm hyde:

@tim four bucks looks like a steal for that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Gary:

Oh, nice! They translated the titles into French, looks like :)
  8:57pm Jill B,:

I have learned that one just needs to be patient. Why get mad or be disappointed about something you have no control over. All will be well in the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Gary:

I'll call tomorrow!
Avatar 🇰🇷 9:02pm tim abdellah:

@hyde - Yeah - I was stoked to find that!!
@Gary: Essaouira is actually pronounced like: Sweera
  9:02pm Jill B,:

Gary, not to worry.....just send new address.
  9:03pm Jill B,:

And to the rest of you, give Gary a break! After all he provides us with all of this wonderful music that we all have come to love and enjoy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Gary:

Tim, the Moroccans share something with the French -- they like to build these big long words that are just one or two syllables
Avatar 9:24pm glenn:

aw, we're just busting his balls because we love him.
Avatar 9:24pm hyde:

@Jill B sorry! i was just messing around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Gary:

I wonder if Mom is still actually listening to this incredible Oum Kalthoum track
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Doug Schulkind:

Oum sweet Oum!
Avatar 🇰🇷 9:27pm tim abdellah:

Wow - that guitar sounds like the Stones' "Paint It Black"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm melinda:

@tim I thought it sounded familiar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Gary:

Hah, it *does*!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gary:

Larry Grogan returns with Testify! in half an hour right here on this very stream. Tonight's theme "Grazing in the Grass": wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Gary:

Somewhere, printed out, I have a full list of known Oum Kalthoum recordings, listing dates of either performance or publication and composer and lyricist ... but I moved (cf. Mom's comments above) and I am not sure where it wound up
Avatar 9:36pm hyde:

it's in a box! some where.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Gary:

I FOUND IT! The song was written in 1970 by Muhammad Abd al-Wahab with lyrics by Ma'mun al-Shinawi
Avatar 9:41pm hyde:

@Gary nice work
Avatar 🇰🇷 9:43pm tim abdellah:

Good sleuthing! I poked around online but wasn't able to find it. BTW, you know "Oum" means "Mother" in Arabic, right? Great if your Mom is still listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Gary:

Wow, languages like "Mm" "oo" or "oh" or "ah" sounds for mom ... mom is amma in Hindi
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Wonderful wonderful wonderful show, Gary! In other words, just another BPL.
Avatar 9:58pm hyde:

thanks Gary!
