Ken, i have that Traveling Wilburys guitar in lower left corner. If you click you can see the whole thing.

Why, it's Meghan, or as she's known this afternoon 'not Trouble'! Glad to hear you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13am Guido from Cologne:

I was about to suspect first, Trouble found a new bed-bird-singing record, hehe.

Yes.... not Trouble.... but my own kind of trouble.....

Good morning Meghan. I clicky-starred the Luzmila Carpio song, but work will probably get in the way

  9:47am Clackas:

Prins Thomas is really working as a soundtrack to a Cumbrian Motorway Services.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...what Meghan's been listening to after a while - probably one of the better themes!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Guido from Cologne:

Note that Gudrun's moniker implies that she's a good girl!
(Fun idea for a Punk-Rock era moniker.)
So it is not to be pronounced as "bowels" but German 'good':
Avatar 9:57am Opal:

I feel like I could dance Salsa to this underwater
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am Guido from Cologne:

By the way she is founder member of Einstrzende Neubauten (besides Mania D. / Malaria). (For all people involved Neubauten was one project among countless others.)

I'm so excited to see the Meridian Brothers next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Uncle Michael:

I failed. I couldn't resist peaches, granola and yogurt. I exhaled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Meghan:

I don't have smoking pants either!
Avatar 10:01am βrian:

@Adrian: that's quite a talent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am adrian in mpls:

@ βrian - My brain only processed "No tengo pantalon"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...pantalons wouldn't smoke underwater you'd think...salsa & yoghurt? Mango maybe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...not so dif from sour cream I suppose (yes trying to prompt food convo)...
  10:04am ?:

Bienvenue, Meghan et Milou! So we meet again. UTP's absence from the regular schedule will be downright close to tolerable if you keep doing frequent fill-ns.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05am Mike East:

I just ate some peaches granola and yogurt. Great soundtrack this morning...did some inspired cooking.

Dang. Mike left and I can't ask if he makes his own granola too.

Themish? African? Got here just in time...!
The one "touristy" thing I definitely recommend visiting in Bangkok is the Enerald Buddha Temple, definitely worth the time.

Ohayo gozaimasu Mayuko! Is it true you will be filling in for DJ Stashu at 3am on Saturday, July 4th?

Great African section anyway!

Thanks Guido!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am Meghan:

Hey Dave, the forensic one is close to the market I want to go to that sells records.... and the other is a bit south of my hotel...
Avatar 10:37am Dave B:

I have a heavier mix of this tune on some other record besides the Ghana Soundz album...
  10:37am listener james from westwood:

All hail free hotel wi-fi for letting me hear the always wunnaful Meghan and WFMU!
Avatar 10:38am Dave B:

the Bangkok.com Magazine section has some pretty good stuff:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am Meghan:

Yay hotel wifi for not overloading on you and crapping out!
Avatar 10:38am Cheri Pi:

oo I love this song, never heard this version either
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am Meghan:

oh that Rod Fai Market is the one near the forensic one that has the records.... it's the one I'll probably drop a lot of money at.....
Avatar 10:44am Dave B:

Bhat-er up!

If you have any overnight trips planned, try to see if Khun Narin Electric Phin Band is playing anywhere

  10:52am listener james from westwood:

It's the Borgata in AC. Property-wide except for the rooms, perfect for those of us w iPod Touches or laptops!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am Guido from Cologne:

is this the lost UWTP-DJ-premium?
Cannot stop work 'cause I want to stay listening.
Avatar 10:53am Dave B:

And if you get tired of Bangkok, I'd recommend getting down to the coast. Khao Lak was REALLY nice, with some awesome beaches....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Meghan:

hahaha..... I am luring you to stay Guido! The hypnotic African beat.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am Meghan:

Dave- I think our overnight trip will be to Angkor Wat..... White girl here is not much of a beach person.... there is not enough sunscreen to help me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- truly a rich & satisfying set.
...Ah FMU...a world of worthless broadcasting, & one station what has too many great DJs...
Avatar 10:58am Dave B:

there's lots of Thai cooking classes to be had too
Avatar 11:00am Dave B:

Wngkor Wat? That's in Cambodia!
Avatar 11:01am Van in DC:

I was married to a Thai lady for 8 years. Spent a month in Thailand, loved it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02am Philthy woman:

The Phalic Schrine! It is worth seeking out- kinda hidden behind a fancy hotel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Parq:

Okay, it's the last hour of Meghan's show. Where's my coffee? I gotta start getting washed up. Oh wait, I'm already at work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Meghan:

I love that it's behind a fancy hotel.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Philthy woman:

OOOpS! Phallic shrine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05am Meghan:

ha! sorry to get you all confused Parq!

Dave- I know that! It's only an hour plane ride away.... so why the hell not?!
Avatar 11:05am Van in DC:

If you watch Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern you may have caught his Thailand episode where he ate at a "Cabbages & Condoms" restaurant. I've eaten there - it's real and it is actually a really good restaurant in the Bangkok area
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Philthy woman:

Yea, Meghan it is great. We spent hours in the rain running around trying to find it because it was apparently not at the address we had but then finally we went into the hotel -probably to pee and ask about it and there it was in a garden through and behind the big lobby. This was pregadget days so there was no googleing it just a lot of wandering around getting soaked. It was part of the fun and well worth it
Avatar 11:10am northguineahills:

I somehow forgot to comment. Great to hear you again Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Philthy woman:

Also What Po, across from the Palace, the giant reclining figures and other statues there are amazing and the oldest Thai massage institute where I studies serves up great affordable thai massage on the grounds. Be warned it is not a private massage expereince like in the west, its a big room of stations with lots of people getting massages but thai massage is done clothed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am Meghan:

I love exploring and trying to find things. That is part of the adventure! You discover new things while searching for the one.... yeah technology has killed that a bit..... sadly
Avatar 11:13am Dave B:

Just leave your phone at home! Unplug and reconnect with life!
  11:14am SeanG:

This music is BOSS
Avatar 11:17am Van in DC:

Another thing - you can get custom made very nice clothes very inexpensively. I loaded up on suits, etc. for very little money...

One of my favorite ESG tracks, such a good jam. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am Philthy woman:

I agree Meghan, I try to only use the google before I set out and then leave the gadget out of the scenario unless I really get in a bad situation. China Town in Bankok is an experience like no where else as well

Man, this set is really doin' it to it.

Avatar 11:30am groucho:

funnily enough, I still have the alarm on my phone for your old show, goes off every week, deleting it would be accepting that you're not there anymore & I'm not doing that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Meghan:

awwwww that's sweet groucho...... though I must admit that I have been enjoying the sleep!
Avatar 11:33am Claw!:

There is much chair-bobbing going on over here on my end, too. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am Meghan:

It's a Claw! and Meghan dance party..... in chairs...
  11:36am timurf:

I think you'll love Bangkok! If it hasn't been recommended already, check out the Chatuchak market for a bewildering array of stuff you can't live without (its a common tourist haunt, so nothing terribly insider about it.) Just don't misplace your passport like my niece did once.
Avatar 11:38am pierre:

killer show Meghan !
  11:38am timurf:

Oh BTW the cab fares from the market seem to be inflated, and they are all synched to the same 'overcharge.' We tried several cabs and they all had the meters off, so we gave in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am annie:

i'm surprised that everest didn't back the 4 inches from all this chair bobbing.. what a great show meg!

blast from the past!!
Avatar 11:39am Claw!:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am Meghan:

gah! that is not good! it's not a place I have to carry my passport around with me, right? I know when I was in Moscow we did, for the possibility of a shake down (which happened to me)
  11:42am timurf:

I don't think so, but personally I carry my passport with me everywhere as i think it is safer with me than anywhere else. I keep a passport size wallet so all the foreign currency goes along with it.
Avatar 11:43am DJ_Guy:

Damn first that ESG deep cut, now Konk. Killer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am steve:

heya Meghan... great show today!!
Avatar 11:44am Cheri Pi:

me too Meghan, I always carry my passport when I'm traveling and I guard my bag like a hawk.
Avatar 11:45am Van in DC:

Take "tuk-tuk"s when you can, rather than cabs. Cheaper...
  11:45am P-90:

A shakedown in Moscow?
Avatar 11:46am bobdoesthings:

great show meghan!!! many thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am Meghan:

I usually put my passport in the safe at the hotel. I don't trust myself carrying important items like that on my person....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am Meghan:

Moscow is notorious for shakedowns! Cops will ask for your passport to see if your visa is up to date. They will sometimes ask for money to get out of it. I just had to show them the vodka I purchased. They were impressed and let me go!
  11:49am P-90:

Vodka: It's the answer to everything.
Avatar 11:49am pierre:

WFMU is where I go to get my traveling tips
  11:50am timurf:

thats cool, everybody has their own system for that sort of thing. oh also the waterway tours are great esp around sunset! the boats are lovely but are powered by big diesel engines mounted on a tiller! think diesel-billy meets gondola
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am Ken From Hyde Park:

Well, that was a fun three hours that passed all too quickly. Take care in your travels and be safe, Meghan. Can't wait until your next fill-in.
