This sounds great! Got any good Nigerian music? I stumbled across a Nigerian pirate radio station audible in Newark (at 88.5) but it's kind of disappointing. They only play the slickest, most Auto-tuned new Nigerian MTV-style hits. Could only tell it was Nigerian by googling the lyrics, some of which are in English and some not.
  Thu. 8/31/17 1:05pm Mark R:

If anyone can really rock a set of strong non-MTV-ish Nigerian shit, it's Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:05pm Meghan:

I don't think there is any in this set today, but have played a TON of it in the past! The new contemporary African music with all that auto tuning is horrible.... Why?! Why do that to all of your music?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:09pm northguineahills:

Were the lyrics in Nigerian pidgin English, like on the Pidgin English beeb page? www.bbc.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:11pm Meghan:

oh, that is funny and hard to read! ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:15pm ⓘⓚⓔ:

@NGH holy shit! Yeah, some of them might've been! The lyrics seemed to be a mix of English, Yoruba, and maybe some pidgin English. Here are some of the lyrics I googled:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:19pm ɛɛk:

Oh wow, I thought this was all old classics! Good to know they still make good music in Africa and it's not all this overproduced MTV Africa shit! Is this their "alternative" music, I wonder? LOL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:33pm Parq:

Tony Coulter would heartily approve of this set.

I like Shopping, but not shopping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:43pm (i)(k)EEE:

I'm aching to see the new schedule! One angry commenter implied a *major* DJ is off (not just Liz, someone else) but IDK where that info came from or if it's just a crazy rumor. Any major promotions from late nights/overnights, a la Samantha on the last schedule?
Avatar Thu. 8/31/17 1:43pm The Oscar:

Tuning in late! Just got back from Denmark, where intense black licorice is EVERYWHERE. My mom was born over there, and we brought her back a couple dozen different varieties. None of my family there would believe me when I told them it wasn't really a thing over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:44pm northguineahills:

Dennis Wilson and other's were frequent customers at that veggie restaurant whee Ye ho wa 13 came from. there's a nice doc on them.
Avatar Thu. 8/31/17 1:45pm The Oscar:

Also, just about every ice cream place there serves black licorice gelato.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:46pm Meghan:

Yes, sadly people here don't realize the wonders of black licorice. I always get "EWWWWW"ed when eating it. And Panda doen't count as black licorice. I want strong and intense!
Avatar    Thu. 8/31/17 1:47pm Dave B:

Icelandic licorice is the best
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:48pm Meghan:

Ike, I think it may be released today or tomorrow, so no big waiting.... but yes, some big changes. But as usual, they will temporary
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:48pm Meghan:

I was really enjoying Netherland black licorice....
Avatar    Thu. 8/31/17 1:53pm Dave B:

and wait a second... why is it BLACK licorice? That Anise flavor is the ONLY flavor of licorice. That red stuff IS NOT LICORICE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:53pm Jeff Golick:

Basically, if you're wondering if that odd vegan place in your neighborhood is a cult, the answer is almost certainly yes. #nojudgments

Hi, Meghan, and all themeparkers.
Avatar    Thu. 8/31/17 1:54pm Dave B:

me and my dad used to fight over licorice jellybeans at easter....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:55pm Meghan:

That red stuff is just plastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:56pm Meghan:

hehehe, exactly Jeff.... exactly. My local coffee shop had a vegan tell him that almond milk is real milk and milk from a cow isn't milk... WHA?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:56pm eki:

Never mind. Some commenter that Jones is out, but I'm now hearing that's not the case. I guess he decided NOT to throw a hissy fit at not getting the morning show, LOL.

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar    Thu. 8/31/17 1:58pm Dave B:

from the FDA:

If you’re 40 or older, eating 2 ounces of black licorice a day for at least two weeks could land you in the hospital with an irregular heart rhythm or arrhythmia.

Samantha is still on....
Avatar Thu. 8/31/17 1:58pm The Oscar:

The funny thing is that my 9-year-old Danish cousin sent a list of American candy and junk food for us to bring, and one of them was... Twizzlers! They don't have anything like it there.

TWIZZLERS = #FAKELICORICE

ewwwww! WHY??? Child.... no!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 2:01pm ⓘⓚⓔ:

That's good to know, thanks. I was hoping to see someone like Nick Name or Marcel get another such "promotion" like her, but no such luck, I hear. C'est la WFMU! :)
