Listener comments!

  Thu. 9/23/10 12:03pm dc pat:

this has to be from Afghanistan?
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:06pm annie:

tamar... we're finally here..
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:06pm Dale from North Dakota:

Hello Tamar, hope that all is well with you today! Looking forward to another great show, very nice start to it. Have you any Boiled in Lead? Great punked up world music.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:09pm Rob W:

This reminds me - Hokkaido Food Fair this weekend at the Japanese mall in Edgewater NJ (and also their Chicago and San Jose branches by the way) - http://www.mitsuwa.com/event/eevent.php?e=42 - !
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:11pm annie:

i couldn't help but think that was filled with mongolian influence.???
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:12pm Squid:

That Japanese blues was fantastic.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:14pm Cecile:

Rob is Hokkaido that fantastic store in Chicago my friends rave about - with every ingredient and utensil known to mankind?
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:15pm still b/p:

Bluegrass with shamisen. Well, yahh!
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:18pm Tamar:

First track was Afghani-Tajik thereabouts. I've never been to the Hokkaiko fest, but I'm tempted!
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:19pm dc pat:

YEAH! I knew it....only because I have some sirod (or however you spell it) albums.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:21pm Cecile:

sarod. I made a spelling error on a piece and remember this.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:22pm dc pat:

Thanks Cecile, just found the correct spelling same time you posted.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:22pm Rob W:

Cecile - there might be a store called Hokkaido in Chicago but actually Hokkaido is the northern island of Japan! The food fair is interesting because they will have dishes and treats not typically found in Japanese restaurants in North America. Mistuwa is actually the name of a Japanese oversea store chain - and they have a big one in Chicago, and their stores usually have a big supermarket with lots of esoteric Japanese food items and yes, utensils, so that could be what they're talking about!
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:23pm Rob W:

I should add, Mitsuwa is the place where the Hokkaido food fairs will be. But enough shilling for them, as much as I love them. On with the great music Tamar!
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:29pm Rob W:

Although one last shill - I just discovered that Takeharu Kunimoto and the Last Frontier, the shamisen/bluegrass band that Tamar played earlier, is touring the southeast US starting tomorrow! Check out: http://homepage2.nifty.com/ts-sonic/calendar_of_event/index.html
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:29pm dc pat:

this is a killer show and just what I like to hear out of FMU...but, gotta go dumb some dumb shit for a while..
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:29pm Cecile:

Oh, I got it. I think that's must be it. Mitsuwa! Gotta remember that if I ever spend more than 30 hours in Chicago again...
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:32pm Jackie ny-ca:

Mitsuwa is, as they say here, "over the hill" from where I now live in Santa Cruz. I may have to check out this festival this weekend. Never been to the place before, maybe this is a good time to check it out. The website looks interesting.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:37pm Marshall Stacks:

Another Santa Cruzan! If you're into Japanese food, Mitsuwa is worth a visit. I'll be in the Mitsuwa neighborhood this weekend and may stop by.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:41pm annie:

this reminds me of bill murray's lounge lizard singer schtick on SNL
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:42pm Marshall Stacks:

Annie, "Nick Springs," wasn't it?
"Star Wars, wonderful Star Wars...."
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:43pm Dale from North Dakota:

I never realized how long this song is before hearing this version, lol.
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:45pm annie:

what a hoot.!!! which he came dangerously close to when he did that movie in japan, performing karoake..
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:48pm annie:

so funny about SNL back then; the bars would literally empty out at 10:30 so everyone could run home to see the show..
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:57pm Mike East:

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off...hello everyone. Great show Tamar.
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:05pm slugluv1313:

YAY! TAMAR!!! thanx for the transit advice! yes i have lived in Hoboken since like FOREVER . . . and not like i am pushing NJ Transit or anything -- but like you say, bus #126 is just sooooo much closer/convenient than walking from the PATH
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:07pm slugluv1313:

oooooo loving this old Bollywood piece -- what year is this from??
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:07pm dc pat:

hey that Mohammed Rafi is kind of a big shot isn't he?
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:08pm dc pat:

annie: now the bars fill up at 10:30 so everyone is sure to miss it.
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:08pm Geralyn Abinader:

what was playing at 12 noon? Middle Eastern sounding music followed by this guy just wailing beautifully?

Thanks.
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:24pm Looms:

Wonderful show, Tamar, thx!
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:25pm aj:

CKUT's music department listening and chair swaying with you right now -
sounding great, as always
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:28pm annie:

caught that pat, yup.. not like it used to be...
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:35pm dc pat:

sad times we live in...
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:39pm Julie:

it's a "Group called Smith"? I thought it was just "Smith" and the album was named "Group called Smith"
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:42pm Tamar:

Julie, you're right. I stand corrected.
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:44pm PMD:

Oh crap, I'm late in listening. Thanks for the music Tamar!
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:48pm don:

just got back.. for the first time in my life i stood in line for the shake shack.. as much as i always thought i hated long lines, it was nice to get a lot read of reading done and observe dogs.. the food was par for the course. diggin this green universe tamar
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:49pm dc pat:

DANG, did I already miss No Age's tour??
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:56pm Deah Snider:

Sounds like this Samara singer's insides would just explode if she dared project that voice, Sheesh!
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:57pm dc pat:

DANG, did I already miss the Rolling Stone's career??
  Thu. 9/23/10 2:57pm postmanpaul:
