@Letty,
YES - it's hamburgboy ( hamburger ) here .
hope that this is music suitable for a saturday afternoon .

it's the berlin phiharmonic under the direction of gustavo dudamel playing an old " schlager " by paul linke called " Berliner Luft " = The Air Of Berlin .

audience , the orchestra and gustavo all seem to enjoy this very much .

btw listen carefully when he indicates to the audience to quiet down so that the harp may be heard - great fun imo .

@hamburgboy,
hbg, welcome back. I really loved that concert, and Gustavo Dudamel is a great looking dude. I heard the shhh, shhh, shhh, but I didn't hear the harp. That rather sounded like a polka to me. Thanks for the great afternoon treat.

Aha, now that gives me a chance to play Beethoven, buddy.

When I think of Gomer, I think also of Goober. Here is Joe South with one of his top songs, but with George Lindsey, and Johnny and June Carter Cash, helping out.

How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain ?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame ?
Who gets to say ? Who gets to work and who gets to play ?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same.

How many times have you been told "if you don't ask you don't get" ?
How many liars have taken your money ?
Your Mother said you shouldn't bet.
Who has the fun ? Is it always a man with a gun ?
Someone must have told him "if you work too hard you can sweat".

There's always the sun, mmmm, there's always the sun.
Always, always, always the sun.

How many times has the weatherman
Told you stories that made you laugh?
You know its not upto the politicians and leaders
When they do things by half.
Who gets the job of pushing the knob ?
That's what responsibility you draw straws for if your mad enough.

There's always the sun, mmmm, there's always the sun.
Always, always, always the sun.
There's always the sun, mmmm, there's always the sun.
Always, always, always the sun.

(Guitar solo)

There's always the sun, mmmm, there's always the sun.
Always, always, always the sun.
There's always the sun, mmmm, there's always the sun.
Always, always, always the sun.

You bless me djjd62.
Thank you so much for my anthem.
At the moment I am listening to this.
Which does not describe me but has been keeping me strong and sane the last few days.

A Radio how utterly brilliant, this place does seem to be getting better and better.
Go to the music forum and there you will find a topic 'what songs are you currently listening to' a wealth and archive of PhilosophyForum members likes and musical loves.
Have a great day all lovers of the music.

Letty's going to have to play catch up, I'm afraid.

First to dj, Always the Sun and Walk on By were quite different, but I liked both of those songs.

hbg, I am totally amazed at your background about that concert.

Just to remind our listeners:

Carl Emil Paul Lincke (7 November 1866 "" 3 September 1946) was a German composer. His march Berliner Luft ("Berlin Air") is the hymn of Berlin.

The march Berliner Luft comes from Lincke's 1899 operetta Frau Luna about a trip to the moon in a hot air balloon, where an adventurous party of prominent Berliners meet Frau Luna and her court. Other Lincke operettas include Im Reiche des Indra (In the Kingdom of Indra) and Lysistrata. The latter includes the song "Das Glühwürmchen," known in English as "The Glow-Worm". It was originally translated into English by Lilla Cayley Robinson in the early 20th century, but famous American lyricist Johnny Mercer later expanded and greatly revised her lyrics. His version was a hit for the Mills Brothers in 1952 and has been performed by others.

He also composed the wedding dance played in the 1997 movie Titanic which is played while the ship is going down and in the dining room in earlier scenes.

Berliner Luft is one of the traditional Encores of the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra.

Fabulous, buddy, and what caught my eye was Johnny Mercer and the Mills brothers.

edgar, Don't know Joe South, but the combination of Goober, Johnny, and June song was fantastic.

First, inspired by our German Canuck, The Mills Brothers.

and since today is Alexandre's birthday, a marvelous song from his prolific pen.

What a wonderful afternoon here on WA2K.

@Letty,
letty :

here is an even older GLOWORM - erna sack from 1937 .
i remember listening to her on the radio ( oh-oh ! )

i believe she was called a " coloratura soprano "

Quote:
A coloratura soprano is a type of operatic soprano who specializes in music that is distinguished by agile runs and leaps. The term coloratura refers to the elaborate ornamentation of a melody, which is a typical component of the music written for this voice. Within the coloratura category, there are roles written specifically for lighter voices known as lyric coloraturas and others for larger voices known as dramatic coloraturas. Some roles may be sung by either voice. For example, Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor was famously done at the Metropolitan Opera for many years by lyric coloratura Lily Pons

it's a lttle scatchy ... ...
---------------------------------------

from wiki :

Quote:
Erna Sack's maiden name was Weber, and as a child her voice attracted attention both at school and in the church choir in which she sang. In 1921, Erna married Hermann Sack. She studied at the Prague Conservatory, and later in Berlin with Oscar Daniel.

She received her first break aged 30, when the wife of conductor Bruno Walter happened to hear her at one of her lessons and persuaded her husband, who was then the musical director at the Berlin State Opera, to audition her. Subsequently she joined them and between 1928 and 1930 she sang many small roles with this famous company, including parts in the 1929 local premiéres of Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari's Sly, on 11 May, Eugen d'Albert's Die Schwarze Orchidee on 9 June, and Mark Lothar's Tyll on 1 September. At the same time she recorded several small roles in operas for Berlin Radio. But Walter advised her to gain more experience in provincial opera houses and to enlarge her repertory.

Her career really started in high gear in 1930 when her uncanny ability to sing those stratospheric high notes, including c7 (C above high C. (Richard Strauss later wrote a new cadenza for her high voice, for her to sing as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos).

@sometime sun,
Welcome to WA2K radio. I will listen to your song later, and I hope you stick around.

The Stranglers are different and as dj observed, they get down and dirty. Smile

Here's is a little bit of info on Alexandre Tansman, folks.


Alexandre Tansman (12 June 1897, Łódź""15 November 1986, Paris) was Polish-born composer and virtuoso pianist. He spent his early years in his native Poland, but lived in France for most of his life. His music is primarily neoclassical, drawing on his Polish and Jewish heritage as well as his French musical influences.

Don't want anyone to miss his music.

@hamburgboy,
That indeed make me smile, hbg. Love those oldies from WWI. My dad was in that war and if you recall, my German shepherd was named Ebony Von Bismark after Otto.

Here is an answer to the older version of Glow Worm. Although we played it before here, it's worth another listen.

When you get a chance be certain and listen to Alexandre Tansman song as played on an acoustic guitar.

I have gotten so far behind on my comments, it will have to suffice to say, I have at least sampled the music and postings, and you all are doing a marvelous job on the radio. I will be back with a selection soon.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, I like Sophie B.'s California Here I Come . That one was all in a minor key.

Time for me to say goodnight, and I think that I shall do California in a major key, y'all.

Love this man!

The old and the new. Here is a birthday girl. First a little info.

Robin Miriam Carlsson, better known by her stage name Robyn (born 12 June 1979) is a Swedish pop singer-songwriter. Robyn was known in the late nineties for her dance-pop hits "Show Me Love" and "Do You Know (What It Takes)". Robyn entered Melodifestivalen 1997 as songwriter with the entry "Du gör mig hel igen" (You make me whole again). She has since started to gain mainstream success worldwide owing to the popularity of her No 1 hit single "With Every Heartbeat" and subsequent album release. In January 2009 Robyn won a Swedish Grammis award for Best Live Act 2008.
