Pretty imagery in this music, "sunbeams", pretty word for it too.
By "North African" I assume that most of this is not even Arabic, but Berber and Tamazight and other native languages.

The problem with Google Translate is it doesn't work for Romanized Thai, so it's hard to type what you see and expect a translation.

Really Thai "can't" be Romanized anyway, what with 44 consonants and 15 vowels, and five series of tones.

I went to Thailand almost 2 years ago, first time in Asia. LOVED it! But I just know a bit, and in terms of speaking I just memorize existing phrases because I can't do tonal languages yet. (They say Thai is actually easier than Chinese and other languages, as far as tones go.)

Hey Doug,
Next tuesday I'll have as cohost my friend, musician and producer, Ryan Davies. We'll be around the Jamaica Plain area of Boston for next couple of weeks. I think he'll bring a fair amount of disco and contemporary uk club music, though I can never be sure with these things.

thanks for letting me butt in to your comments.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:35am Van in DC:

Indeed. My wife's nickname was "Tui" but there are five different ways to pronounce that word, and each means something different. The intonation to say her name correctly was very hard for me. Gosh, the Land of Smiles. I love it, miss it.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:36am Van in DC:

@Matt - nope, I don't get that joke
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:37am Matt from Springfield:

@Van: "Mai mai mai mai mai?" with different a tone each! :)
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:39am Van in DC:

OHHH. Mai for "no" I know. :)
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:39am Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: If I had a vegetarian family member, I would respect their moral/preferred choice, but I would shift a lot of meals to stir fry--I could cook one pan with meat, another without!
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:40am duke:

Really like the Sonny Simmons talkover music
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:40am Holly in NC:

@Brian in UK - Yes, anyone who lives with me has to be understanding of my irrational fear.
But oddly, like Doug, if I have to act brave for a spider-phobic child I can cope. Otherwise - I can't. Just can't.

Apparently I need either a knight in shining armor OR a child. OR a psychiatrist. Any takers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/8/12 11:43am Doug Schulkind:

@Duke Yes, really really great.

@Matt Not when your vegetarian family member is a 12-year-old who demands the same adherence to moral/ethical values. We don't go complete meatless, but honestly, it is easier than being picketed in your own kitchen.

@jk My comments are an open book. Spill your guts.

Everyone be sure to tune in to the next Kaminsky Kamoutsky with Jesse, live here on the stream, Tuesday from 7-9pm.

My gf is a veggie. So, it's rare that I cook w/ meat. I'm an excellent cook w/ all things veggie, barely break the skin w/ meats.

Brer Soul--this is a FMU classic! Is this album considered eccentric for Melvin Van P, or does he normally deliver this eccentric brand of soul?
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:45am Brian in UK:

Sorry Holly my armours at the cleaners. I do worry that my wife has passed on the spider paranoia to our three daughters. But Hey life goes on.

Is this pretty much straight-ahead stuff from Brother Van Peebles.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:45am ndbob:

Glad Jessie is doing OK Doug!..... with company in town, went out for a nice steak this week
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:46am Van in DC:

Gosh I love vegetarians. Means more bacon for me. bwaa ha ha
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:46am annie:

i'd be miserable if meat were not part of my diet.. i'd have to be paired with someone who isn't squeamish about a burger now and then.. and some nice scallops which i picked up at the tailgate market this week yum!
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:47am jk:

thanks Doug!
As someone who converted to vegetarian at 12, I had no idea what I was asking of my parents. It wasn't that easy in arkansas at the time, lots of cheese sandwiches (not really vegetarian, in retrospect)
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:48am Brian in UK:

Doug, think you have pitched this show perfectly with the photo.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:49am Holly in NC:

@Doug! IMNOTHO I make the best bolognese sauce in the world - I'll send you recipe to play with ;-)
@Matt, I'm with you. I very much limit my intake of pasta, rice, potatoes, most beans & all grains so.... (bolognese sauce is wonderful on shredded cabbage, for real) :-)
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:49am Van in DC:

NOOOOO! I'll Have Another apparently just got injured and is OUT of the Belmont! No triple crown winner again! At least that is what twitter seems to be blowing up about right now... :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/8/12 11:50am Doug Schulkind:

I would love a bolognese recipe, Holly. Thanks! Of course, I won't get a chance to try it until daughter goes to summer camp.

I'll Have Another had one too many, apparently.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:51am Carmichael:

Oh BTW, the first sighting of "Show Me" was Julie Andrews (on the stage) in My Fair Lady. Don't know if she actually recorded it 1st.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:52am Artie:

The horses they give. And the horses, they take away.

Howdy all. Late today. Archives for me...
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:53am Hugo:

No veggies in the family, but only one true appreciator of a single malt whisky!
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:53am ndbob:

hey Artie.. yep no Triple Crown this year
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:53am northguineahills:

I've corrupted my gf to being a pescatarian. But since I'm lactose intolerant (i still do dairy if I feel the pain is worth it), a lot of our meals are vegan, unless we cook the odd shellfish.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:53am Holly in NC:

I am a VERY ethical/moral meat & fish eater so I think I could have a lovely lively debate/discourse with Lincoln ! It'd be fun!

And I ABSOLUTELY respect the eating habits of all my friends, even the utterly pain in the arse vegans. I have 3 friggin grills.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:54am Brian in UK:

Rains stopped, wellingtons on, let's walk the dawg.
Enjoy the meat, Doug & Jessie.
Happy weekendings all.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:54am annie:

carm, we played that album over and over when we were kids... irma la douce, too(sad to see that elizabeth seal never went further than that performance)... silly me for not remembering that!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/8/12 11:54am Doug Schulkind:

In you, Holly, I've met the grill of my dreams.

Woof woof, Brian.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:55am Holly in NC:

@Hugo - now THAT is sad
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:55am northguineahills:

I feel all carnivores should at least once slaughter an animal they're going to eat at least once. To be fair, I've only slaughtered chickens.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:56am annie:

holly, the two tailgate markets i went to here in asheville were rife with locally produced meats and cheeses!! whoo!

aw, mama, is this really the end?
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:57am Hugo:

I will never ever give up on seafood of any kind - to go with an exquisite white wine.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:58am Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: I've seen deer being prepared, I could probably do that. But I'm an acknowledged hypocrite when it comes to chickens--I love chicken, but could I slaughter one? Chickens are gross, with the feathers, fat and bones, I don't know if I could "process" one for eating.
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:59am Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful show as always! Thanks Doug!
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:59am ndbob:

excellent show Doug! I'll catch the part I missed on the archive
  Fri. 6/8/12 11:59am Van in DC:

@ngh - I have spent time in an actual slaughterhouse and it is grim. But they are so tasty.
  Fri. 6/8/12 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

this programme hit the spot. loved it!
  Fri. 6/8/12 12:01pm Holly in NC:

@Van = trying to get my head around not being able to pronounce 1's spouses name - I guess that why (& I just realized this!) *all* the men in my life - from 6th grade Scott on - have had 1 syllable anglo-saxon names! ;-)
