OK, this must be the place. Greets, Cheyenne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:05pm Cheyenne:

Greetings, Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:05pm listener james from westwood:

Howdy Cheyenne and Sem and all!! Always here for field recordings!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:05pm Cheyenne:

I love that FMA has so many field recordings from so many parts of the world. I'm sure I'll do more field recording shows in the future.
Avatar    Tue. 5/8/18 3:13pm Yvang:

Hi Cheyenne! these tunes are so good, even better with the "field" sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:14pm Cheyenne:

Thanks Yvang! I love the truly 'live' feel of field recordings. It's an audible slice of life!

Hi all

G'day melinda!

Love that one of the selections is from Maryland!

i've eaten at that restaurant in Silver Spring!
Avatar    Tue. 5/8/18 3:30pm βrian:

Why these field recordings are, eh, outstanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:32pm Cheyenne:

har har, βrian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:35pm Stanley:

Howdy Cheyenne. Eastern Uganda eh? Been there (Cue stories from 'When I was a Younger Man)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:36pm Stanley:

Senegal, too. It's really not at all difficult to come across local music in Africa. It's everywhere you go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:38pm Sem:

I could listen to Stanley's travel tales all day long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:38pm Cheyenne:

I've never traveled to Africa though I once had an opportunity to do ethnomusicology in Cameroon and now regret it - but I had already signed up for a study abroad summer in China. Hopefully someday I'll make it over there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:40pm Cheyenne:

Also I love that you can hear this musician asking for Bruce's name and then singing about him in this song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:45pm northguineahills:

Been busy in lab all day in the lab, and since I was handling acids, I couldn't even say hello to WoofMooland via my phone, but I've been listening. I clicky-starred this episode, thanks Cheyenne, I should probably take a lunch break (have yet to eat today, and I have leftover Korean waiting for me at home).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:47pm Cheyenne:

Go eat some lunch, northguineahills! That's what the archive is for :)
Avatar    Tue. 5/8/18 3:47pm βrian:

@NGH: I can post some arepas to the playlist if you like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:49pm Stanley:

Thanks Sem. There were lots of African musicians who improvised songs. On one occasuion I had a song about me, whilst in a Sudanese 'shabeen', along the lines of where I had come from and how I found the local girls etc. Of course, I never had the foresight to record anything or even take photos (I gave my camera away to a friend I made). But I did come back with cassettes from the markets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:51pm Cheyenne:

Nice, sounds like you had quite a memorable time, Stanley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:51pm Sem:

Cassettes! Prescient of you, hope they're still close to hand, but I'm guessing maybe not?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Cheyenne and listeners far afield.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:53pm Stanley:

Ah yes, Cheyenne. 'When I was a Younger Man'.
Sem, they're still around but my cassette player gave up the ghost some time ago. Plus many are poor recordings
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:55pm Stanley:

These recordings are great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:55pm Sem:

....never "poor" recordings, but "veritapes." My own coinage, that.

Been fun today, Cheyenne. Can't wait for next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:56pm David D:

Hey Cheyenne and everyone! Just thought I'd drop the Subway link today: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:56pm Cheyenne:

Thanks for tuning in, my dears! Have a great week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:56pm David D:

And yes, these are great recordings!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/8/18 3:57pm Cheyenne:
