At long last, here is archive show #37, complete with my new "all-purpose" intro and closing which will be heard on all subsequent programs until we get to the ones I didn't lose the files from... Does that make any sense??  Also due to popular request, I'm including the time length for each track.  Shimmy your summer away! 1.  YOUSSEF KASSAB     Od Duka Al Myess - 5:12     from the album Nadira Belly Dances for Youssef Kassab, 1974 2.  YACOUBIAN & COMPANY     Holiday...

And here, finally, is archive show 35!  Unfortunately, when I lost my sound files I lost most of my introductions and closings and these were not recoverable, so the next 30 or so postings will be without my annoying voice!  This is a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view!  At any rate, thanks so much for bearing with me, and please enjoy! 1.
