Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:06am fred von helsing:

@doca it's not so bad! :) spoek mathambo does a great cover of joy division's "control", the best version by far is not the youtube one but the one in the wfmu archives
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:07am Meghan:

FVH, the one from my show when I had him on?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:07am doca:

@fred: it's great, actually, and it fits well with the upcoming summer.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:07am Matt from Springfield:

CAR to Kenya, just be careful not to run into the LRA when travelling that route!
  Thu. 11/14/13 6:08am Andrew:

Hi Meghan & matt, doca, elwyn & fred ^_^
You're right, loved that song, good to dance to ^_^
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:08am doca:

@Mfs: What's LRA?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:08am Sem Chumbo:

Dr. Meghan, I presume? Good morning to you and fellow travelers. Lovely traveling music...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:09am Meghan:

@doca: The Lord's Resistance Army, Joseph Kony's death cult. Much reduced from its peak of terror in Uganda, but still on the run and killing in that part of central Africa.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:13am fred von helsing:

for some reason, reminds me of Johnny Carson talking about Wild Kingdom. "Hi I'm Marlin Perkins, and I'll be up here in the treehouse mixing martins while Jim gives the rhino an enema".
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:14am Matt from Springfield:

@Meghan: Submit these programs as your dissertation, they'd have to award one to you! ;)
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:19am Meghan:

tell me where and I'll do it!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:19am doca:

@Mfs: Uganda's such a wicked place, I saw a report about US fundamentalists financially supporting homophobic groups over there. Sad stuff.

I'll cure what ill's ya!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:22am Matt from Springfield:

@doca: From Idi Amin forward, Uganda's had many such challenges facing it.

At least today, we can rejoice in the music of its people; the spirit of life!

...urrgh - I'll be honest, co-travelers - take a lot to get my gy-raffe galavantin' *this* mornin' - but we'll start w/ tea & carbohydrates & the glory of this part of the Continent...

@RRN63: Tea & carbs & gy-raffes - great start to the morning! Hope it's much warmer there than it is here right now!

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:32am Matt from Springfield:

Well, I guess you've done something on it! I'll find it :)

Individual countries are always great themes to do.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:33am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- weedgit says 30°F out there right now - high of 41°F today. Remember having the windows open & getting no relief from the heat & humidity this Summer - ??...Individual countries - good idea !...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:34am doca:

I'd be glad to help on a Brazilian-themed show! Brazil's like 26 countries tied together when it comes to music

We should exchange food for tunes!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:37am Matt from Springfield:

*Massive* Ethiopian/Eritrean diaspora here -- brought their cuisine and music to the DC area particularly.

U St in DC is the historic core, but I was pleased to discover a block or so of a "Little Ethiopia" in Annandale VA!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...don't give *her* no flack about flax !!
...Woke up & heard most of Julie's show after the interview - & *that* was good enuff - so should deffo check the Archive...goes perfectly w/ efd's Ramones interview last night too...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:39am Matt from Springfield:

@Elwyn: Food for tunes...I like that exchange idea!

To those passing through N. VA, the rest of Annandale is mostly a Korean cultural district--if that's your thing, be sure to stop by there.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Thx - now I want something exotic for breakfast - maybe something w/ curry...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:41am Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: Surely! ;)
Avatar    Thu. 11/14/13 6:42am Guido (Cologne):

I'd enjoy more of Africa for the whole winter!

But if in any case Asia comes to the schedule,
I loved quite a bit of Thai-Psychedelic:
... but I guess you know that comp. already.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I can put a dash of cherry flavor syrup in my tea, I have that...where did I get such an odd craving...

The Ex cover Belomi Benna very often during their shows (with Katherina singing)

Here is a link to one of the Asia shows.... www.wfmu.org...

hey! (dj jason elbogen's bed music!)
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:48am Meghan:

THOUGH, for the Asia shows....I only used the name of the country, not music of the the country.....
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:50am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

I've got to duck away from the keyboard for a bit because I need to wash the dishes and get my laundry off the washing line.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...so - in Ethiopa, a tinge of an 'Arab'/'MiddleEastern' influence? & in 'Shellela' here I'm reminded that Ethiopia is exalted by the Rastas, no ??
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:52am Meghan:

awwww washing off the line....
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- good stuff !
...Ethiopia - the birthplace of humanity, right?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:55am doca:

RRN63: You know at least half of the humans came to Earth after the war with the Cylons, of course
  Thu. 11/14/13 6:56am Andrew:

yup arabs ruled that part of africa for a while.
it's interesting to see the influences
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...yerknow - being into GarageRock & the 'Nuggets' sort of thing...there are a lot of WorldRawk equivalents - in the sense of somewhat LoFi but HighSpirit recordings that perhaps weren't widely distributed...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:58am Dave B:

the entire Ethiopiques collection kick ass on so many levels
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 6:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- sounds like it !
...& as ever, kudos Meghan for picking a great variety of great tracks...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:02am hamburger:

  Thu. 11/14/13 7:02am Andrew:

so hypnotic O_O

love this Gigi song
  Thu. 11/14/13 7:03am KP:

Good morning, Meghan. Sounds great.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:03am Dave B:

Hey if ever you do go back to Asia, here's some local Thai street / folk music that I find fascinating...

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:06am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- last set was flawless
...& this not completley unlike Albert Ayler or something - so Jazz too...
Avatar    Thu. 11/14/13 7:08am Guido (Cologne):

Thai music anyway:
momentarely is one of the most fascinating countries to discover as far as myself is concerned.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:08am fred:

@hamburger: the label is pretty great: www.budamusique.com...

"Shake my Djibouti" could be the name of the Marathon Premium
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:14am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...you shake yer Djibouti, I'll make tea - all will be right w/ the world...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:14am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

Is it blacked out by Google because there are secret military bases?
  Thu. 11/14/13 7:15am Andrew:

Of course, Egypt is in Africa. I think you covered that one early.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 7:20am Dave B:

Egypt is like Turkey - straddles two continents

and isn't Djibouti one of those little outburst Michael Jackson would utter while singing Billy Jean?

Come on, Djibouti

Condolences to fans & loved ones of Yellow Dog.

Here's the link for donations to the band and their statement- pitchfork.com...
  Thu. 11/14/13 7:23am KP:

That interview is well worth seeking out. It was often amusing and always powerful. Plus live sets Meghan engineered.

I rewatched Persian Cats the other night, just because. I hope this weeks event won't jade their outlook. They were poised for so much good to happen to them.

Horrible story about Yellow Dog.
Puzzled about war-traumatised minds ... my humble guess.

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 8:01am Meghan:

no worries Andy.... I know the feeling of searching for something and not finding it until right after I needed it! I am surprised the station didn't have it to be honest!
  Thu. 11/14/13 8:02am Andrew:

what was bad about the music?

love this Abdullahi Qarshe one
ooh & Aar Maanta - real mix of african & arabic sound
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 8:04am Meghan:

oh it was a lot of bad contemporary stuff. It was a hard country to get a nice diverse mix. I got it... but it took a lot of searching!
