@Will, I can definitely remember Peter, Paul, and Mary (maybe?) singing that! Thanks DJ Sheila B! I was in the same spot! Couldn't remember what it was!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Fri. 5/4/18 3:44pm djsheilab:

I think that "Tiny Sparrow" / "Come All Ye Fair...." comes from a very old English folk song. I think Joan Baez's "Silver Dagger" has the same melody. And Saint Etienne's "Like A Motorway."

Hi everyone. It's weird how "One Night In Bangkok" takes me back to my junior high school. Like, I'm back IN the school. The hallways, the dances, etc. It's so much more than just the memories associated with other songs. I guess because I've not really listened to that song that much apart from in that specific period of time/context.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/4/18 4:03pm listener james from westwood:

In the pre-search days, a friend asked me who the hell did this song. It took 2 months, but while I was in L.A., it came on the radio, and I frantically looked up the station's phone # in the hotel room phonebook (yes) and got the DJ, then called at god-knows-what-rates back to my friend in NJ to tell her. Elaborate!! Now that's like 10 seconds stem to stern by way of smartphone research and texting the answer.

For a question like "What's the capital city of Guatemala and what is its population?" you'd have to go to a library and find an encyclopedia. Now you speak the question into your phone or your home's always-listening device and you get the answer in a second.

Selda was my gateway to Turkish psyche music, she's amazing (and that was 18 years ago)

I've actually gone ahead and pre-ordered this because it reminds me of my childhood with my grandpa.

omg. Gul was the name of my high school friend. She passed away last year. It means Rose.

@NGH: definitely. Selda, Baris Manco, Nese Alkan. I don't know much but music by any of them from the 1970s is tough to beat.

Coming Tuesday one of my former bosses is retiring. He's a music lover, just like I am, so I thought the first album of Chavela Vargas from 1961 would be a good farewell present, don't you think?

Rob, that would be a great gift!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/4/18 5:28pm Guido from Cologne:

Emma Tricca can be considered somewhat of a freak folk revival veteran. This post-punk-folk-something is a completely new approach.
