The Serbs just called; they wouldn't mind some Bregović they said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/7/17 6:43pm Rob W:

Ah yes St Joe, can do!
  Sat. 10/7/17 6:50pm Philip:

I usually love this show and appreciate the variety of music from around the world. But this music today is torture. I think I'm challenging myself not to change the station, but it's killing me.
  Sat. 10/7/17 6:50pm St Joe:

Great. I really don't need them mad at me.

prrrtz prrrtz!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/7/17 6:52pm Rob W:

I did issue a disclaimer at the top of the show!
  Sat. 10/7/17 6:52pm St Joe:

@phillip. songs about machine guns? what's not to like?
  Sat. 10/7/17 7:08pm cat:

group doueh and all the brass bands rule. but sometimes i like the more familiar brass band tones of the washington post march by sousa played by a brass quintet
  Sat. 10/7/17 7:10pm cat:

washington post march is a beautiful song and very american sounding, but i always love it when rob takes us on a musical journey across the world
  Sat. 10/7/17 7:17pm cat:

sousa's washington post is like an aural palate cleanser after so much amazing, complicated brass music from all these disparate countries
Avatar Sat. 10/7/17 7:22pm katie:

The breadth of brass is astounding this evening.
  Sat. 10/7/17 7:23pm cat:

its better than being ass-sounding

Katie, you're hired!

Hello Rob and friends. I was fortunate to catch the Nigerian parade on 2nd Ave this afternoon. The music and dancing was incredible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/7/17 7:25pm Rob W:

That sounds great Smilty69!
  Sat. 10/7/17 7:54pm Ike:

Oh dang I wish I'd gone to the Nigerian parade instead of the super lame Korean and Diwali street fests in midtown. Was there any food?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 10/7/17 8:08pm Threemoons:

Hola all. Dropping in for a bit; have WFMU blasting on my Echo while I attempt apartment decrappification activities. Gonna get my biohazard suit on...
  Sat. 10/7/17 8:11pm Ike:

I'm downstairs at Monty Hall and there's not many people waiting to see Group Doueh and $75 Bill! Where is everyone!? Y'all missing out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 10/7/17 8:13pm Threemoons:

Oooh, I love me some Hungry March Band. IIRC they were the house band for Bindelstiff Family Cirkus back in the day...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/7/17 8:15pm Rob W:

I'll see you down there soon Ike! 75 Dollar Bill are great too, inspired by the Sahel and the Mississippi Delta and they start at 8:30! You're excused folks if you have to miss the end of my show to head on over to Monty Hall!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/7/17 8:20pm Rob W:

Yes Threemoons, that's right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 10/7/17 8:24pm Threemoons:

Rob W thanks! :D Another useless musical trivia point: Back then, some of their sheet music/regular rotation items were actually old Yiddish favorites--I remember them playing "Alle Brieder" once after a show. Turns out that Jennifer Miller, the Bearded Lady, is or was at the time the head music curator at YIVO
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/7/17 8:28pm Rob W:

Very interesting!
  Sat. 10/7/17 8:49pm wittsend:

cool hungry brass band used to roll through my old warehouse for parties all the time
