Good evening Rob and local and global citizens of the comment board. So happy to usher in the new year with WFMU and all of you!

Happy Hogmanay everyone

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Ike:

Apropos to some of the music, I'm nibbling on a couple of mezze from Al Basha in Paterson NJ (the takeout location on Main St.) that I got yesterday that I'd never had before: bakdunsiah, defined as "parsley, tahina, and lemon zest", and turkiya, defined as "tomato paste, onions, chili". The first is OK, but the second is phenomenal! I wonder where you get such great tomato paste and what kind of edible crack they secretly put in it.
  6:32pm Andres:

Hi, Rob! Hey, all! What’s the chorus borrowing from in the El Michels Affair song? Driving me nuts trying to figure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm DjLorraine:

Shik Shak Skok one of my favorites!
  6:32pm headcleaner:

need to make a pilgrimage to Paterson sometime
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Ike:

I can't find many references to "turkiya" as a recipe online but maybe this is it: exploringtheturkishkitchen.com...
  6:38pm tracy in LA:

this is really helping my Punjabi black eye peas along Rob :)
  6:46pm headcleaner:

The edible crack probably comes from everything being reasonably fresh. Anything made with freshly roasted or stewed tomatoes generally blows store-bought tomato paste out of the water. I would guess "turkiya" just means "turkish".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Rob W:

Glad to help Tracy. Happy New Year and thanks for listening everyone.
Avatar 6:50pm TDK60:

Hola Rob. Suddenly recall Richard Fariña had a similar melody to this Delta one in the song: A Swallow Song.
Avatar 👻 6:50pm Bas NL:

Happy New Year Rob & fellow TSP listeners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Smilty69:

For dinner I cooked for my fam some chicken cutlets with cayenne and peppers along with penne pasta in a homemade tomato sauce (canned crushed tomatoes) with fresh garlic and basil. And a chickpea veggie burger for me.
Avatar 6:53pm Frank Zaatar:

@TDK60: As I'm sure Rob can tell you, it's an old Sephardic melody. My question is where Fariña heard it.
Avatar 6:54pm TDK60:

Thanks Frank Z.
Avatar 6:58pm Frank Zaatar:

Rob, that set sounded like a night at the old Feenjon on MacDougal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Ike:

@headcleaner@6:46, good observation -- I suspect you are spot-on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Handy Haversack:

Specific and nonspecific New Year greetings to Rob and all the spanners of borders!

Specific greets, Handy, \\// chresti. and in particular, the general populace.

Making leftover feast over here -- garlic bread pizzas with broccoli rabe and fresh mozz and tomatoes, fried leftover manicotti, to be followed by the unopened bottle of proseco.

\\// TDK60, decidedly
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm john_zilla:

happy new year all. Rob, thank you for your show on a lazy and kind of quiet new years day
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:41pm chresti:

Love this!
  7:48pm headcleaner:

The musical vibe is meshing quite well the rain, holiday, and (de facto) lockdown in NYC now
Avatar 7:50pm Frank Zaatar:

Handy, I wish I had some rabe right now--I'd be making it with orchiette and anchovies. Buon Gusto and Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm listener 126464:

I'll have the Paradise for one, please.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm chresti:

We'll be having posole and tamales and avocado.
  7:54pm Andres:

I enjoyed the dinner I made and yet you all are making my mouth water with your delicious sounding meals!
  7:57pm Andres:

That was a heavy polka!!

Y’all are making me hungry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Frank Zaatar! I had sauteed/steamed with garlic-infused olive oil and lots of red pepper. Worked really well on the garlic bread tonight. Victory!
  8:12pm garlic lover:

Big victory

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, robm. For me, glancing at news headline periodically is enough. I get all out of whack if I get into the details.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm listener 126464:

Fantastic show, thanks Rob and happy new year.
  8:55pm Stinky Star Man:

The news is absolutly totally propaganda, even obvious lies or a grain of truth for CYA purposes. Really amazing to watch.
We are in the midst of the largest (global) Phychops in human history. It can't hold-up forever even with the massive censorship.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm chresti:

Thank you, Rob! Great selection!

Thanks Rob! A great mix for the new year!
