Bob Abrahamian - Raw and Unedited

Bob Abrahamian - Raw and Unedited magazine cover

Bobs sister Jenny just posted me this audio clip of a raw unedited version of an past interview featuring Bob Abrahamian.

Her friend Kristina interviewed Bob back in 2009, this was later edited and played on the WBEZ station a public radio station in Chicago.( A 7 minute clip is online here http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/local-radio-host-shares-his-love-soul-music )

However the audio clip below is the full raw interview from Bobs bedroom, raw, unedited and covers 1 hour and 20 mins of Bob answering q's from Kristina and talking about...

Well Its been described as "basically like a class taught by professor Bob about the history of Chicago soul music and a bit about collecting" which is to me a fitting description

It's very much a real world, a real time sort of thing and as such offers a great insight and also a most enjoyable listen!

Update 2019

Yes, it brought a few tears to my eyes.  But, it's nice to hear his voice every so often.  Nice that "Sitting In The Park" 's interviews have been saved, and we also have these interviews of Bob.  I have had a lot of family members and friends who left no recordings.  So, I can only remember their voices from my memory, and from dreams.  But recordings, and film are a lot nicer, as they are more accurate, and then trigger other memories of those people.   I'm relatively old, and don't know how long I'll be around.  But even if it's 20 more years, that goes by really fast (as one gets older).  So, I hope I'll be in contact with Bob again, after I go.  The older I get, the more I believe that's possible.   I know that sounds irrational, but The World is plenty ridiculous even when one has had a good foundation in the sciences, and has good mathematical logic.

It would definitely be fun if life continued just in another dimension. I wonder though, if we would then still discuss and talk about OVO vs bootlegs 😀

Somehow, I rather doubt that.  We'll be "spirits" (non-alcholic" of course), and  so, we'll "speak", or exchange thoughts using "mental telepathy" (at least something equivalent, given we'll have no physical brain.  But, I don't think we'll be talking about bootlegs, or Simon Soussan, or anything as mundane as Soul music.  We'll be discussing MORE IMPORTANT things, like existential matters, such as "is 'is' is?".  Or, if we've been good enough to go to "the GOOD place", maybe we'll be able to have a giant record barn with all mint copies of EVERY Soul record ever made, whose grooves never wear out, and a harem full of women who like all the same music we do, and don't mind our spending time playing them, and don't complain about our spending money on them instead of our kids.  😎
