If Music Could Talk- Diwali

If music could talk - special show for Diwali

the Hindi phrase which i probably mis-pronounced last night im pretty sure was "Divali Ki Bahut Bahut Shubkaamnayein" my friend Prasad told me over the phone to say this on the air to everyone (basically means "A very very happy holiday to you this Diwali"), and, being a spur of the moment thing, i think i pronounced it pretty much WRONG! lol --however i looked it up later and i think the above is possibly the correct phoenetic spelling...:P

setlist will be posted soon! (I have most of it typed up already)

If Music Could Talk- Last week's show

Last week's show podcast
thanks for listening and thanks again to everyone who supported WRIR during our 2006 Fall fundraiser!

note: during this program i mis-stated that Diwali was last weekend.. it's actually this weekend on Oct 21st. I thought this because I Dj'd a party last week that was an early celebration of this important Indian holy day.

Last Night on "If Music Could Talk"


I played various songs and artists for the first hour and then, a special hour set of the GRATEFUL DEAD.. A band that bridged many cultural gaps and opened their fans up to more international sounds and artists (ex: Hamza El Din, Babatunde Olatunji ..esp via Mickey Hart and his love of percussion from all over the world.)
The Grateful Dead!
This show featured an excerpt from a live performance (10/22/78) with the late Hamza El Din- legendary Egyptian Oud player and singer.
