Hi Rob, Happy 2016! Listening in while working on a document this afternoon--best practices for guiding blind triathletes--I am one (smile!) Got lots of my workout songs through T.I.E.! Great to have this music along while I work.

Hey Shelly Ann! Nice to have you on board on this wet winter day. Happy new year to you too, and good luck with the project. Lots of cool stuff to come this afternoon, so I hope it helps propel you through your writing.

Looking for the Kip Hanrahan indiegogo link? It's here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/new-american-clave-record#/ There's still time to become a partner.

Groovy tunes as always, RobB! Super duper!!

Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Thanks, Manmohan! Glad you're enjoying. Stay tuned for some hypnotic Ethio tunes...

Just joined in, after an extensive bout of hacking at saturated snow piles ... which will soon turn hard as a diamond. Feel (and look) like a a frigid drowned rat. Nice to have some music to de-soggy to... ;^)

Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Hey PB! Welcome! Your timing is good, as I think this Invisible Astro Healing Quartet is right up your alley. A little Ethiopia-influenced psychedelic jazz for a very wet afternoon.

2:51 PM, January 10th, 2016
PeterB
Yes, perfect. Turns out, goes great along with a belt of whiskey. ;^)

2:57 PM, January 10th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Oh, I imagine so! Stick around; more jazz to come, this time under the influence of Iraq...

2:59 PM, January 10th, 2016

That Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet was cool, but the Amir El Saffer Ensemble is even better. Great stuff! No doubt, PB is looking even more like a drowned rat after the whiskey!

3:04 PM, January 10th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yeah, these guys are really killing it. The way PB killed his whiskey. Wish I had a whiskey!

Great music just tuned in.

3:14 PM, January 10th, 2016

Hi Vincent. Welcome. This is Amir ElSaffar's Two Rivers Ensemble. New album called Crisis. Very good stuff!

3:17 PM, January 10th, 2016
Vincent

Yup. I'm providing a rain-based soundtrack to the day.

The music that is playing right now is just PERFECT for a rainy afternoon spent working away on writing assignments--very quiet and beautiful.

3:28 PM, January 10th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yeah, this is good rainy stuff. And a little less boisterous than the Invisible Astro Healing guys were. Some very lovely Gamelan fusion.

3:30 PM, January 10th, 2016
S.A.M.
The Invisible Astro Healing music was good too--you need a little boisterous music to keep you going! All good music today for sure.

3:39 PM, January 10th, 2016
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yup, you gotta have a variety. I'm glad you're digging it. I've been enjoying the heck out of it all myself today. Not bad, considering my initial urge was just to play the new David Bowie record over and over for three hours. But you know, there's just no world music angle there, so I was forced to come up with today's show instead.
