that is an exciting looking pile of CD's...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:51pm Gary:

I thought it might interest you, Hyde :)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:52pm hyde:

in my wheel house. up my alley.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:54pm Gary:

Hey, Hyde, where were are you again?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:56pm ndbob:

evening Gary, Hyde, everyone!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:57pm Gary:

Hiya, Bob! Just settling in with a cup of coffee
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:57pm hyde:

I have a dual existence these days, I'm in Woodstock (NY) during the week, then most weekends I drive back to Attleboro MA where my house and gf are. (Attleboro is like 20 min from Providence, RI)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:58pm Gary:

Aha, I thought it was somewhere not too awfully far from New York.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:58pm hyde:

heya, ndb
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:59pm doca:

Evening, all!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 6:59pm Gary:

This pre-show song is a super rare (1 known copy) single of Ros Sereysothea, Pen Ran and ... grrr ... someone else
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:00pm doca:

This is not the show yet?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:00pm Gary:

Two cats in the house! Hi, Doca!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:00pm Gary:

Nope, just about to start. Guess I'm getting started a bit late!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:00pm davex:

Hi Gary and everyone. Indochina theme tonight?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:01pm hyde:

@Gary I know, I NEED to get down to the city. fwiw, I was just reading about some supposedly pretty good new Korean barbecue place in Flushing called Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:01pm listener james from westwood:

how do, all! Dinner and Bodega Pop—perfect together! (Now New Jersey's gonna sue me for stealing their slogan.)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:01pm doca:

Good, so I haven't missed the show's theme(s)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:01pm Gary:

Hi Dave! Yep, that's it! More TK in the announce ... hiya, James!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello BPL PPL!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:02pm Gary:

Howdy, Doug!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:02pm Gary:

You gotta tell me when you come, Hyde!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:05pm New Jersey:

We'll let you slide just this once, m'kay?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:06pm Gary:

New Jersey! Welcome to New York, neighbor!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:07pm hyde:

@Gary will do!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:08pm New Jersey:

Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:09pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, New Jersey! I wish you luck in your quest for an official state song.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:10pm Doug Schulkind:

The problem with Bodega Pop Live is it simultaneously introduces me to dozens of heartstoppingly fantastic tunes AND then makes it impossible for me to go ahead and play those tunes on my own show. For at least TWO WHOLE DAYS!!!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:11pm Gary:

@Doug: Ha ha ... hey, if you want anything (and this goes for allayaz), holler and I'll get it to you!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:14pm Holly in NC:

Hi Gary, Doug, Glenn, hyde. ljfw! xo
Gary, it'd be great if someone could translate titles etc. for the Cambodia Rocks comp you just shared on your blog... does anyone here have the skills?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:14pm glenn:

joisey doesn't have an official state song? does springsteen know this?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:15pm Gary:

Holly! Glenn!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:16pm Gary:

@Holly, I know Peter Doolan can read Lao as well as Thai ... so it's possible he could suss out the Cambodian for us as well, if we ask him nicely
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:16pm ndbob:

Heya Holly . Glenn everyone else I didn't say hello to
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:16pm Holly in NC:

Oh and hi Doca! So many cats, buffalo, foxes, warms the heart :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:17pm Uncle Michael:

I've come to prefer the weight savings associated with a carbon fiber organ wrap.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:18pm doca:

Hi Holly! and everyone that appeared here since I've last said hi. Great nu-metal track now
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:18pm Gary:

You took the words right out of my [insert appropriate pun here], Uncle Michael!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:18pm Gary:

This band, Doca, is Cells, from Laos. Not sure the track name, though. I just made the one here up.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:19pm hyde:

man, a lot of people showed up when i was in the shower.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:19pm northguineahills:

Not to be confused w/ the 90s indie band Cell.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:20pm Uncle Michael:

That always happens to me too. I have had to start locking the door.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:20pm Gary:

Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:25pm Holly in NC:

Heya ndbob, and hi UM!
Need to be quiet for a while as I'm dealing with airlines for a client trying to access her recently deceased husband's frequent flyer miles.
So far American Airlines very helpful, United/Continental OK.
Air Tran - ASSHOLISH in every way possible.
Delta doesn't allow transfer/merge at all but suggested workaround if we can hack deceased's PIN #. In all cases simply getting to a human being is insanely painful & time consuming, I have stationed a stiff drink to my side :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:29pm doca:

Your work is very odd, Holly
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:29pm Gary:

Good luck, Holly ...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:30pm Gary:

and, yes, what Doca said :)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:30pm Holly in NC:

@doca - yes, it is :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:31pm ndbob:

Good luck Holly - and this is great Gary!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:33pm Gary:

I almost didn't make it back outside the hotel after this find, Bob -- I just kept listening to everything, hands trembling
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:37pm Uncle Michael:

Hi Holly. Take those assholes to the woodshed.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:43pm Gary:

This next Vietnamese track begins to deteriorate (surface issues on the CD), but the vocal performances are so good, I couldn't not share it
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:43pm listener james from westwood:

You're doing the [divine being or beings]'s wprk, Holly. That client has a friend in you.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:43pm listener james from westwood:

Gary, if I held something like beginning to deteriorate against anything, I'd be a hypocrite.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:44pm Gary:

I resemble that remark, James
  Wed. 5/7/14 7:45pm MrFab:

Oddly enough, that slow steady groove of the Rungpetch Laemsing track reminded me of some African stuff like Orchestra Baobob or Ali Farka Touré. Coincidence, I guess..?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:46pm Gary:

Possibly, but possibly not, MrFab -- music travels! (As I hardly need to tell the compiler of one of the coolest international cover song comps I've ever heard)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:53pm Gary:

Maybe more Lollywood than Bollywood
  Wed. 5/7/14 7:54pm MrFab:

Thanks, Gary. Actually there have been four 'Cover The Earth' comps, and am working on Vol. 5 !

And as it is approaching 5:00 Left Coast time, gotta head out and check the rest of the show in the archives...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:55pm Gary:

Have a great night, Mr. Fab, and thanks for all of the great stuff you share!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:57pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary! catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 7:58pm Gary:

Happy trails, Bob!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:00pm doca:

This one could go on that fake latin music WFMU premium, Gary
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:01pm hyde:

this is a killer cover
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:01pm Gary:

Did you get that one, Doca?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:02pm doca:

I didn't this time. Is it yours? I'll get it on October silent fundraising probably
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:03pm Gary:

It's Jesse's
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:07pm doca:

What was Bodega premium?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:07pm northguineahills:

Ok, gotta to run some errands. Hopefully, I'll be back by 10 Thanks Gary!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:07pm Holly in NC:

@Doca you rock!

So does Jet Blue, incidentally.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:08pm Gary:

I see Jet Blue's offices, with a massive Jet Blue sign, on the way home every night from work, Holly
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:08pm Gary:

Doca, mine was Rap Around the World
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:09pm Gary:

See ya, NGH!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:11pm doca:

Oh yes! How come I didn't get this one? I tend to pick premium for themselves and not necessarily for the shows I listen the most. From GTD I got Tony Coulter's one, though usually I don't listen to his show

@Holly: you rock too, specially transferring miles from deceased persons to the living ones.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:11pm Holly in NC:

"Frontier is currentlt experiencing 37 minute hold time. Please hold"
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:14pm hyde:

ah, Richard Marx. I was thinking it was Tears for Fears for some reason.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:14pm Holly in NC:

While waiting, Frontier suggests I book my summer getaway to Missoula.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:15pm hyde:

hang in there Holly!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:15pm Holly in NC:

omg down to 34 minutes.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:23pm Holly in NC:

I think I need to give up on Frontier for now. I am getting paid for this time & this is unconscionable, no way I'll bill for this. I will set alarm for 3 am & retry. Down to 29 minutes. Unbelievable.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:25pm Gary:

Oh, man.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:25pm Gary:

So, this is a huge hit in both Laos and Thailand
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:34pm hyde:

this is the water snake song?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:35pm Gary:

No, Hyde -- that one was two songs ago, the morlam-sounding thing with the older guy's voice
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:37pm hyde:

ah. i'm so confiused! and i don't care.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:38pm listener james from westwood:

Super stuff at the halfway mark!!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:43pm Gary:

The musicians (and remixers) (and Casio(TM)) thank you, James!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:47pm hyde:

Gary, this stuff is fantastic. It's comin' thru. It's totally comin' thru.

My googling "siang sawan" only led me to find that this apparently means "Luminous Sound" in Thai and Pen-ek Ratanaruang did a short segment in a film about a blind pianist called that. Which reminded me of "Monrak Tranistor" that he did--has anyone seen that? it's a pretty fantastic Thai music love story. It's dedicated to Surapoi Sombatcharoen...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:48pm Gary:

Argh, I keep starting to watch Monrak Transistor but have only ever gotten 15 minutes in ... I need to see it!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:51pm hyde:

it's pretty good. it's a little slight in some ways (Last Life in the Universe is a better flick, overall), but it's got a good heart.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:51pm Gary:

I loved Last Life in the Universe. Same director?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:54pm hyde:

yep, Pen-ek made Monrak right before Last Life
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:56pm Holly in NC:

So my client just called and told me not to worry about Frontier or Delta or the other airlines who've been pesteriferous, she will have her Harvard-educated lawyer stepson deal with them as "he knows their general counsel". But no. Just NO. I am setting alarm for 3 am & getting through , damnit, because dear god not everyone has a friggin' Harvard lawyer in the family, and elitist ties should not be a prerequiste for decent customer service, let along contract honorship.

Your show has been keeping my head from exploding, Gary, thank you! :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:56pm northguineahills:

So, not a Lao Plaid cover band, I take it?
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:58pm davex:

Enjoying the show and the creative titling!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 8:59pm hyde:

Mysterious Object at Noon!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:03pm Gary:

Yes, thank you, Hyde, that's it, of course! And here's a panel from my comic: inkbrick.com...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:03pm Gary:

And here's the order form (it's actually out now): inkbrick.storenvy.com...
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:05pm Gary:

Dang Holly -- and, yeah, agreed. But, argh.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:25pm hyde:

please post that one, that was great! also, the lao currency is the kip.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:27pm Gary:

Kip, thanks. And will do, Hyde
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:33pm listener james from westwood:

Will catch the tail end of this lovely show in the archive; early to rise tomorrow. Many thanks for sharing these finds with us!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:34pm Gary:

You're welcome, James! Have a great night, and thanks for hanging out
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:38pm Parq:

This has been great! I don't get to listen to your show too often, but I'm sure glad I caught this one.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:39pm Gary:

Thanks, Parq ... nice to see you!
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:57pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the music, Gary. It's been a trip.
Avatar Wed. 5/7/14 9:58pm Gary:

Thanks for sticking it out, Hyde! See you soon, I hope ... night all!
