Hey, you(s)
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:08am Andrew Waterloo:

good morning
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:08am ausmanx:

are you suspecting there's more than one listener out here, j? this sounds almost like arabic theremin. i bet they discovered the theremin first too
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:10am Jason Elbogen:

I'm open to the possibility of more than one listener. When I used to DJ on East Village Radio there sometimes were (literally) zero.
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:11am ausmanx:

it's the quality of the listening, not the quality. andrew and i are very attentive
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 6:12am Sem Chumbo:

Another listener. Good morning, Jason, Andrew W and Ausmanx.
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:20am ausmanx:

shamisen's that really beautiful string instrument you see in so many japanese films. i've just booked a koto player to do a gig at my house in november... you should come over!
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 6:20am JasonDBN:

Morning all.
JasonE, IIRC The Shamisen is an instrument... of some kind, a lute maybe?
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:21am ausmanx:

you gotta love this... duelling shamisen! www.youtube.com...
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 6:37am ausmanx:

brenda, i assume, is accompanying herself on the joanna...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 6:50am maestroso:

Still another listener. G'morning all.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:20am maestroso:

Yapoos! First time on FMU?
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 7:22am Jason Elbogen:

first time in three years, looks like.

but they've been played before.

...seems maybe 8 A.M. is when more people approach their keyboards?...
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 7:35am Jason Elbogen:

they find my sensuous voice and between song chatter so intimidating that it takes about two hours to build up the courage to type, RR
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

ausmanx: Thx for giving me an opening to vent on Politrix yesterday A.M. on UnderwaterThemePark board. Wasn't implying I wasn't interested in your opinions
- but the opposite: was interested enuff to engage
- altho' I'm sure there are limits to how much political discussion makes sense on FMU CommentsBoards...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

JE: I mean 8 A.M. for Programs generally - altho' I take your point...
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 7:44am ausmanx:

i find the sensuous voice and chatter quite alluring, to be honest. and djelbogen is someone not afraid to launch into the fray of controversy, though definitions of terrorism are more fraught than intolerance of Brooklyn, i guess. i can be disappointed with the reluctance of FMU listeners to comment on serious things, but i suppose i'm always up for provocation, and nowhere seems inappropriate to me. everything is political, esp music.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:45am maestroso:

@Jason,
I've been surfing the j-pop youtubes for a while, hence my familiarity with Yapoos and Jun Togawa (and my avatar).
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I've said before: I don't know if Posting another stream address is a big faux pas here
- but if it is, I claim dibs!:

Big B Radio - JPOP | The Hot Station for Asian Music

...the part after the last colon doesn't make part of the Link - so you have to Copy it I guess...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:51am fred:

Good morning/afternoon/evening. I see I missed Yapoos and some shamisen, but these "Cambodian Guys and Gals" is nice
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...How do you say 'paddle faster, I hear banjos' in Japanese? Lost in Translation, likely...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 7:54am vanya moscow:

nice stuff jason! it`s racers song, people. haven`t heard this track!

rybnikoff is the composer (awesome), i wonder who`s the band/arranger. the movie`s name translates "great space trip". always excited to hear russian/soviet stuff on wfmu, you guys there always pick best!
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:06am fred:

Jason, I finally found something about the Tibetan long song. Not much, but it seems to be from Kham. I've seen it referred as "Kham Lu", but I suspect it just means "song from Kham". I even got the name of that singer I saw last year: Gazom Lhamo. So I'm making progress in that quest
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:06am maestroso:

@RR: I'll have to return to the comments later when I'm home... work blocks those links
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:07am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...sexaroids in the mornin'...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:09am fred:

And thanks for letting me hear Yapoos, I'm a big fan of Jun Togawa
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:09am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's the Stream Address for that J-Pop so maybe just put it in a Player (when can/if want)...
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:09am Jason Elbogen:

Fred--
Thanks--seems like there's lots of Gazom Lhamo videos/music online. I'm going to look into it when I get home.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:14am fred:

Jason, some feature questionable arrangements, but I'm sure you're familiar with that particular pitfall. I'll be seeing Gombodorj Byambajargal again next month, I just can't wait. I'll be seeing Jandek for the first time two days before, but I just can't get properly excited about it with Byambajargal coming to town
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:18am fred:

Is that "Come On" track new? It sounds so no-wave to me, but this sound is making a comeback these days
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:24am fred:

There was a Enta-Omri-ish vibe to this Hassan Abou Seoud track
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...apparently the homepage for stream :
www.bigbradio.com
...I know nothing about it...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:29am fred:

and this Rybnikov track was delightfully Gainsbourgish
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:33am fred:

I saw a great Uyghur show this week. I hadn't expected much from it, but it was Dolan, so I learned something precious
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...fun & varied picks, JE!...
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:37am ausmanx:

are you suggesting that Armenians shouldn't record in Australia???
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:38am northguineahills:

It was Wednesday night, just saw that Daily Show yesterday. He was hilarious!
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:40am KevinfromBayRidge:

A non-contentious good day to all!
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:40am fred:

It makes sense though, Aussies may want to record that while in Armenia it may just not have occurred to them. So much music needs an outsider to be captured, and that's just not about trad stuff
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:41am ausmanx:

armenia has BRILLIANT recording studios, i'm sure. however, some discriminating armenians have chosen to relocate to our magnificent brown land and good on them for supporting the local recording industry. the australian diaspora in armenia i'm sure records in Yerevan
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:41am Sem Chumbo:

The Albanian song/album title: "Don't Trust Your Neighbours" reminds me of a harrowing travel book about Albania: "The Accursed Mountains."
A well-named piece, according to the authors observations.
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:42am northguineahills:

During the Nagorno-Karabakh war in the 90s, many Armenians fled for lands abroad.
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:43am northguineahills:

Same w/ Azerbaijanis....
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:44am Jason Elbogen:

As a coincidence, Ausmanx: that daily show episode with Bassem Youssef also featured John Oliver going to Australia to demonstrate how completely insane some of us Yankees are about guns.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:45am fred:

@NGH: fleeing war makes a lot of sense to me. Then again, I'm french, so it's no surprise
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:45am ausmanx:

now that does seem perverse, and a long way to come to demonstrate American gun fetish?
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:47am ausmanx:

ngh, i guess the Armenians have had lots of reasons to flee for many, many decades; they're probably one of the most widespread diaspora
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:49am fred:

@ausmanx: that gun thing is just puzzling to me. And either that's a great Pink Floyd cover, or the playlist isn't catching up
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:51am northguineahills:

Yeah, the Turks and Soviets weren't too kind to the Armenians, to put it mildly.

I love this YLT!
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:52am Jason Elbogen:

Yeah, this is one of my favorite Yo La Tengo songs.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- the French didn't flee war in WWI - & Lafayette helped the American Revolution a lot (I got French DNA)...
- Some in the U.S. say 'gun control' means using two hands. I am not one of them. It's completely out of hand: The gun enthusiasts think the answer is everybody should be like them & be armed better than any challenger - to basically live in the Wild West. For real. That other countries exist perfectly well w/out guns is irrelevant to these sorts...
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:54am fred:

Can someone please tell me why I didn't go to that YLT show? I since heard that the opening band cancelled, so they took over. (banging head on nearest wall, though it wasn't part of it, life is indeed unfair)
Avatar Fri. 4/26/13 8:57am Andrew Waterloo:

The 'gun nuts' in the US run on a bizarre mix of nihilsm and tough guyism. Where it is every solution to every problem is met with an exasperation of hopeless futility unless of course you're kicking someones ass.
  Fri. 4/26/13 8:58am common:

94 was painful for me.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:58am maestroso:

Great show this morning Jason; I'm glad I was able to pay more attention than usual.
Avatar    Fri. 4/26/13 8:59am fred:

That was a good one Jason
