Options May 1, 2019: DJ Rahim's Magic PATH Ride

Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop‑up player!

When DJ Rahim is not busy playing sweet jams on his show Travel Zone (3-6am Tuesdays) you can probably find him on the PATH train, traveling from Journal Square to 33rd Street as a train conductor. Kimzilla shadowed Rahim and came back with some great stories, sporadic singing, and more positive energy than you can shake a PATH card at! Join us at 7pm EST on wfmu.org 91.1 to smile along with us.

Radio Raheem was a character in do the right thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm queems:

i love his show because when i wake up for work at 4am, it's one of the only shows on that doesn't make me feel like there are ghosts in my house
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Richard S:

All aboard!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm melinda:

@queems Hahahaha yesssss
Avatar 7:12pm Dr. Goot:

This is fun, thanks!
  7:13pm Kate:

My ears don't work between 3am and 6am. Eyes either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm queems:

@emily lololol don't get me wrong, i appreciate ghost sounds music. but at that hour, i need to be surrounded by smooth r&b warmth
Avatar 7:14pm Kelly Jones:

You guys find the best people to interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Robert Tables:

you can smell that garbage train at JSQ sometimes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm melinda:

33rd St. to Journal Square is the last leg of my train ride from Maine to JC for marathon. And I stayed at the Iris Records Airbnb loft when I visited the first time last year! Sad that they closed.
Avatar 7:17pm cosmic matrix:

this is super cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Cool Runnings:

Hey Time Traveler ! :-).
  7:18pm fullmetalmonkey:

Wait is this train going somewhere off this planet. Do I need sunscreen
  7:18pm Emily:

@queems Hahah right! I get it. There is a time when the ghost music is extra unsettling and that time is 4 am.
Avatar 7:20pm cosmic matrix:

this mix is perfect, by the way! nice job w/ the recorder/mike
Avatar 7:20pm cosmic matrix:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I sometimes catch part of the Travel Zone. The sounds really fill the ears. He conducts the train on first shift hours? When would we find him on the job and say "Hi"?
Avatar 7:21pm cosmic matrix:

that's not terrifying at all
Avatar 7:21pm kimzilla:

Hi all! Thanks Cosmic Matrix, I was surprised how well it turned out as well, especially with the background sounds.
  7:21pm Kate:

@Kinm did he let you drive the train?
Avatar 7:22pm kimzilla:

@Kate, nope, just toot the horn.
Avatar 7:22pm Kelly Jones:

I can't tell you how weird it is to hear the PATH announcements coming out of my home office desk speakers. The PATH gives me vertigo...WTF.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Z-pulpa:

tuning in a bit late, but wow, I love DJ Time Traveler! This is awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm queems:

so the conductors operate doors, and the engineer/motormen drive? am i correct?
  7:23pm Emily:

@Ken from HP he conducts the Journal SQ to 33rd st line sometime around the 5:00/6:00 hours, I believe!
  7:23pm fullmetalmonkey:

Oh shoot. Does this train have a bathroom. I've been binging cheap beer
  7:23pm Emily:

@Kelly I know! It was so weird editing this.
Avatar 7:24pm kimzilla:

@queems, that's right. It's way more complex than that though, with the change in directions and the platform locations, and weirdos.
  7:24pm Emily:

@fullmetalmonkey oh shoot, should’ve warned you—we haven’t gotten to that part of the interview yet! You’ll have to hold it...
  7:25pm Pattycake:

I need flipflops
Avatar 7:25pm cosmic matrix:

these sounds are amazing. i'm getting totally nostalgic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Robert Tables:

How do they handle people who are sleeping on the train after it's out of service?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm melinda:

I love trains.
Avatar 7:26pm cosmic matrix:

me too
  7:26pm fullmetalmonkey:

@pattycake where we are going you don't need flip flops
  7:27pm Kate:

is that steam I hear? That sssssssssssssshhh is my favorite. Comforting somehow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Richard S:

I tip my hat to anyone who works over the wee hours of the morning.
Avatar 7:27pm kimzilla:

@Robert, why didn't you ask that before the interview! I did get you secret stop question in though.
Avatar 7:27pm cosmic matrix:

trains are so visceral
  7:27pm Derek Bee:

This is a great episode. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Robert Tables:

@kimzilla, I forgot!
Avatar 7:28pm Kelly Jones:

On my way to Christopher and 9th right now...
Avatar 7:29pm kimzilla:

@Kelly, please keep the sex to a private location.
  7:29pm Pattycake:

fullmetalmonkey then get me a space ship now
  7:29pm Emily:

@Kate I think it’s just hydraulics? Train sounds are comforting and sweet for me, too. I think because of the Adams st house.
  7:29pm katharsis:

Oh sound weirdness there with the headphones yes! So sweet to know dj time traveler more.
Avatar 7:30pm cosmic matrix:

the rhythm of the train sounds like tribal drums!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm queems:

i grew up across the street from a freight line so train sounds are the best sounds in the world to me
Avatar 7:30pm cosmic matrix:

  7:30pm Emily:

She’s got a voice, too. Somebody get her a show!
  7:30pm OSC:

Fun episode! My grandfather was a conductor on the Frisco line, so it is in my blood. Greetings from Nevada!
Avatar 7:31pm kimzilla:

I couldn't believe there weren't any mole people. So disappointing.
  7:31pm Emily:

Greetings OSC! Welcome!
  7:32pm Kate:

@ Emily ohh the Adams St house … the train was my favorite part about that house, the train and the toilet on the pedestal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm ultradamno:

The mole people can see you coming, you're not going to surprise them.
  7:33pm Emily:

@Kate me too!!!
  7:35pm Kate:

this is definitely a headphones kind of episode, I love it.
Avatar 7:36pm kimzilla:

@kate, thanks!
Avatar 7:36pm cosmic matrix:

(putting headphones on) WOW!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Robert Tables:

Was that record store Academy Records? There's a short mention of Rahim in this article, at 3:30 P.M. on a day in 2009: www.nytimes.com...
  7:37pm Kate:

@cosmic right!!?
Avatar 7:37pm cosmic matrix:

OMG. I'm now sitting on a BC2 drum throne w/ the sounds pumped up my ass too. ok that works.
  7:37pm fullmetalmonkey:

Does anyone have a diaper?
Avatar 7:38pm cosmic matrix:

Kate, OMG! Anybody else got an amplified drum throne they're listening to this through? fucking intense.
  7:38pm Emily:

I was obsessed with that mole people journalistic book when I first moved to NY.
Avatar 7:38pm cosmic matrix:

Wow, you got to beep the horn. Nice.
  7:39pm Pattycake:

fullmentalmonkey no but I
I know someone you can call
  7:39pm fullmetalmonkey:

  7:40pm Emily:

@cosmic I don’t even know what an amplified drum throne is!
  7:40pm Kate:

@ Pattycake, ghostbusters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm melinda:

yes, better with earbuds!
Avatar 7:41pm cosmic matrix:

Emily, google Porter & Davies BC2. Subwoofer under your butt.
Avatar 7:42pm kimzilla:

@cosmic matrix, I think we need to make a show specifically for THAT speaker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Richard S:

If you're interested, here's an essay about music about subways:
  7:43pm OSC:

Traveling thru Portugal and Spain, I visited (and rode) trains whenever possible. Wonderful Travel Vectors those train stations. The stations in small towns in Portugal have azulejos (tiles) that depict everyday life. Sao Bento in Porto has incredible azulejos.
Avatar 7:44pm kimzilla:

@Richard S. That is too cool. Thanks for sharing.
  7:44pm Pattycake:

@Kate: Yea seen a lot stored in a box thinking of letting hey out

Self-driving trains, another potential topic to bring in Mark Hurst on. www.popularmechanics.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Richard S:

@kimzilla: The blogger basically did posts about songs relating to a certain time or theme. This one post gives links to his best and biggest:
Too bad he doesn't post anymore; and the links to the music have been taken down. But I'm sure you can find the tracks on your own....
Avatar 7:53pm Dr. Goot:

Rahim Rulez!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm ultradamno:

There are tracks a few blocks from me. I get that sound pretty much hourly.
