famous melody stuck in subliminal level
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Linda Lee:

beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I had no idea the song had such deep roots. This is wonderful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Linda Lee:

it really is. familiar enough to pick up on the variations, but strange enough to be new.
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

It's a gradual tour today.
Avatar 7:10pm spacebrother:

I'm glad people are enjoying it. I am minorly obsessed with this song.
  7:10pm zzm:

biked greece, sofia to instanbul last summer, just about the song melody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Linda Lee:

lovely. nice to just chill out & listen. 'specially since i spent the last hour dancing like Gerri Miller in 'Flesh' ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Linda Lee:

.. if Gerri Miller was a camel.
Avatar 7:11pm spacebrother:

@ Linda - LOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - mind your toes! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Linda Lee:

thanks love. no fear. i always wear combat boots in the house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Linda Lee:

if it's between me & the couch, the couch is the one broken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Linda Lee:

@zzm ~ that had to be really lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is so lovely and relaxing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Linda Lee:

this is very nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm guessing the Reuben Sarkissian version is Armenian?
Avatar 7:19pm spacebrother:

Yes. Armenian. Recorded in Hollywood 1950.
Avatar 7:19pm solo mon:

Great show Greg!
  7:20pm zzm:

plovdiv bulgaria to istanbul is highly recommended. follow the ruins of east roman from 1 A.D.

Thank you solo m!

@Greg - Cher's maiden name, that's how I knew ;-)

@zzm ~ where are you now?
  7:28pm zzm:

supposed be in JPN but the flight canceled due to COVID.

'ello folks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm coelacanth∅:

GG @7.22 and if it ends with "ian" it's probably armenian
Avatar 7:31pm spacebrother:

Hey Joe.
Avatar 7:32pm Marshall Stacks:

Once again, WFMU deepens my appreciation of a terrific song.
Thanks, Brother Spacebrother!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Linda Lee:

@zzm ~ i'm sorry to hear that. many of us are held up in our travels. praying we can travel freely again soon.
  7:33pm zzm:

from plovdiv the bulgarian / greece border to turkey still seems closed, you could take bus to cross it
Avatar 7:34pm Marshall Stacks:

Anyone unfamiliar with Korla Pandit's story should look him up.
  7:34pm zzm:

no travel this summer. 'm broke anyways. the cost of living there were one third of US btw.
Avatar 7:34pm spacebrother:

There is a great great documentary on Pandit.
Avatar 7:35pm Marshall Stacks:

I'll check that out. Thanks!
Avatar 7:35pm spacebrother:

A Marshall - You're welcome!
Avatar 7:36pm spacebrother:

I mean "@ Marshall"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm coelacanth∅:

he bullshitted about his ethnicity as i remember.
i think it was Doug Schulkind that did a tribute to him a year or 2 ago
Avatar 7:36pm solo mon:

Korla!
Avatar 7:38pm Marshall Stacks:

The musician's union was not open to people of his real ethnicity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm coelacanth∅:

yeah. Fucked up.
Avatar 7:39pm spacebrother:

@ coelacanth∅ - He hid it to be able to play music to a bigger audience. He also had to conceal the fact that he was gay. Lonely housewives were hot for him because his afternoon show in Channel 5 in Los Angeles in the 1950s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Linda Lee:

@zzm ~ when the borders closed, i was weeks from traveling myself. i wished to find a friendlier culture, cultural & economic. then, ...
Avatar 7:41pm spacebrother:

"because of" or "due to"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll be completely honest, I'm not normally a fan of the one song show but this is truly excellent!! Thoroughly enjoying this :-)
Avatar 7:42pm solo mon:

I love watching korla videos on YouTube, the way he looks straight into the lens while he plays his organ !
Avatar 7:42pm solo mon:

Yes Greg this is wonderfully complex and interesting.
Avatar 7:44pm spacebrother:

@ GG - i was surprised how NOT bored I was putting it together.
  7:44pm zzm:

even the last year soldiers were guarding with rifles at turkey side, free walking peacocks add the class about eastern entry entertained us tho.
Avatar 7:44pm spacebrother:

I like the Spanish in this version for no reason at all.
Avatar 7:45pm spacebrother:

Maybe Frankie Laine liked to sing in Spanish.
  7:46pm zzm:

another note, winter in istanbul wouldn't be too good. snows a lot plus cobble stone roads with seven hills in the city. summer's where at there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm coelacanth∅:

pretty amazing i think that Korla was able to hide his true identity until he died. (so, 60 years?)
Avatar 7:46pm spacebrother:

I'm purposely avoiding the Dick Dale version, but he's in the playlist.
Avatar 7:47pm spacebrother:

@ zzm - I was in Istanbul in the summer. It was amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm coelacanth∅:

is the beach boys version this song? or just named after it
Avatar 7:49pm spacebrother:

coelacanth∅ - I think they did a version. I didn't include it today, sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm coelacanth∅:

just curious. not big into the 'boys
Avatar 7:50pm spacebrother:

That's one guitarist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Linda Lee:

thank you for the warning about istanbul winters. i've been in the catskill mountains in new york state for almost 20 years now. i'm pretty sure i'm done with winter.
Avatar 7:50pm spacebrother:

On this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This guitar is EVERYTHING
  7:50pm zzm:

personally prague, budapest and bulgaria/ istanbul were my favorites. i am planning bucharest then balkan countries next year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Linda Lee:

it sure is!! dynamite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Linda Lee:

what's the tune they segue into: Rabble Rouser? Rumble?
Avatar 7:51pm spacebrother:

Sometimes I'm really happy to be a California native.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm coelacanth∅:

and that's some guitarist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Linda Lee:

oh hey! there's a playlist!
Avatar 7:52pm solo mon:

Funny to hear rumble after all that miserlou
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Linda Lee:

@zzm ~ you seem sure we'll be traveling again! sometimes i wonder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm DJ ARB:

Flight of the Rumble Bee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Linda Lee:

i think i'd be happy too, Greg.
i'm not unhappy to be a new yorker, though. it's been great!
Avatar 7:54pm Cp304:

That was a banger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Linda Lee:

most of my life in this state has been pretty fabulous. 1960 - 2020? not a bad run.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

THIS!!!!!
Avatar 7:55pm solo mon:

Strings er lou
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Linda Lee:

@zzm ~ here's a question for you. what's the most important thing to remember while traveling?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm ARB:

Linda Lee, where will you go next?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm coelacanth∅:

i want to this performed in this way in a theatre, with dancers lots of dancers- amongst the orchestra, up and down the isles, on the balconies...
Avatar 7:56pm spacebrother:

The show will run over about 3 minutes!
Avatar 7:56pm Mailman Tom:

Music from the cradle of civilization
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Linda Lee:

ARB, i'd like very much to pick up where i left off. i was heading south to Mexico, possibly farther south.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - fine by me! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm coelacanth∅:

(..."to SEE this...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Linda Lee:

*this* is nice.
  7:57pm zzm:

zero public transportation from istanbul airport!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm ARB:

I'm hoping to go to Mexico also, maybe for a big move, maybe only an extended stay, when the borders reopen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Linda Lee:

oh no!! haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Linda Lee:

(that 'oh no' is for zzm)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Linda Lee:

ARB ~ apparently you can drive in now. not sure about flying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm ARB:

The ferries in Istanbul are lovely, they serve tea in real glasses and fresh orange juice just for the short commute between Europe and Asia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Linda Lee:

gosh, that sounds lovely.
  8:00pm zzm:

reserve the taxi by cab to airport .com or something before the plight. once your flight touch down at istanbul to text them to dispatch cab to the airport. incoming to instabul is pretty bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm ARB:

My boyfriend is from Mexico and has been stuck here with me since March, though now I don't think he'd go back if he could right now because it's pretty bad virus-wise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm ARB:

I took uber to and from the istanbul airport
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Linda Lee:

i'm guessing that's because they're testing widely now. more tests, more cases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm ARB:

but I'm into these travel tips!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This has genuinely been an outstanding show! Thank you :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm ARB:

My answer to your travel question would be to try everything. an open mind is essential
  8:03pm zzm:

i could listen this melody all day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Linda Lee:

thank you! :-)
i'm finding that's true in general now.
Avatar 8:03pm spacebrother:

@ GG - Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Linda Lee:

it has been really lovely, Greg. thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Learn how to say "please" and "thank you" in your destination's language. Kindness. :-)

@ Linda - Thank you!
