I bet that Turkish outfit is something terrific live. I remember seeing a similar band Orchestre National de Barbes and they killed it live.

Hey NGH, I think it might be sometimes.

Hello David and those that can read a book/periodical and know exactly when their station arrives.

Interesting that Vienna has Kurdish folks. What is Kurdish music as they do not have a homeland and live in four or five different countries.

David can we just jump to 1965?
'Top of the hour' that is real top 40 DJ talk!!!

Maybe once really late at night?
  Tue. 10/8/19 4:56pm melinda:

This sounds more like Weemoweh than the original Mbube to my ears, love it regardless.

@David when I was young it was an exciting window into the past and an alternative to current Top 40.
