          TELEVISION/RADIO; Muddy Waters and Bessie Smith
          Come to Istanbul
          EVERY Saturday night, radio listeners in Istanbul can hear a voice in
          heavily accented Turkish welcome them to another evening of blues
          music. The announcer says, ''Yalniz gercek blues caliyorum,'' which
          means, ''I only play real blues.'' I am that announcer.
