  Thu. 9/29/11 6:13am Meghan:

Bonjour Anchovy!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:16am Dave B:

I just hope this doesn't freak out the regular JM crowd.
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:17am the anchovy:

this Nabeel Rojeh is really cool!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:22am Dave B:

manama = bahrain...

but I think it would be cool to visit that one again.

(and NO Elwyn, Patrick is not related to me in any way)
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:23am David:

what's the one-word theme? countries?
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:24am Meghan:

That is what I thought Dave B...... I knew it got mixed up.

David, today's theme is my musical tour through the world. We are trying to visit every country in the world through music! So right now we are in the Middle East!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:24am Simon:

Was Manamana by the Muppets about the same City? I want to hear that!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:25am Simon:

or was it about Du Du di Dubai..
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:25am Meghan:

Ha! I kept thinking that too Simon!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:26am David:

that sounds really cool. I'm usually not up at this hour so this show is new to me. I'll have to check out some of the other countries you've done tours of!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:27am Meghan:

It's not always like this...... but it's fun! I'm not usually up this early either..... except for the show! hehe
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:27am Dave B:

Welcome to the Park David.

You have to be this tall to ride the "Tilt-A-Wheel".....
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:28am Dave B:

I second the request for MANAMANA!!!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:33am Simon:

Just picking up on the newswires that there are heightened tensions in the middle east today. Apparently down to some crazy American shock jock creating significant offence by misplacing the capital of Dubai. Live on air. Would you believe some people?
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:35am Meghan:

HA!..... it doesn't have to be a capital! it can be any town too!
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:41am Dave B:

Doesn't Frank Sinatra sing about Dubai in "Strangers In The Night"

Towards the end where he scats "Dubai dubai dooo"
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:42am pierre:

LOUDERRRRR ! (my headphones are spitiing sound loud here)
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:42am Meghan:

Oh punny punny dave.....
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:43am Dave B:

that's all I got right now....
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:44am Simon:

I don't mean to cause any trouble, but were Albania and Romania included at any point during the European leg?
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:46am Meghan:

Yep. They were...... http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/41637
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:51am Dave B:

let's give Google+ a try. Might be enough momentum to cause a mass exodus. Fire up the video hang out feature...
  Thu. 9/29/11 6:54am pierre:

  Thu. 9/29/11 7:11am fred von helsing:

"Bahrain in Blood"? ouch the truth hurts
  Thu. 9/29/11 7:17am Dave B:

I like the use of "call to prayer" chants. Sends me back to the summer of '79
  Thu. 9/29/11 7:20am fred von helsing:

  Thu. 9/29/11 7:22am Dave B:

Gotta love the interwebbes
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:09am Elwyn:

  Thu. 9/29/11 8:16am Elwyn:

@Meghan: Has the world lost respect for Australians ever since our previous government chose to participate in Gulf War 2? I'm hoping I'm not American enough to become a political prisoner...
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:16am fred von helsing:

hey the more, the merrier! maybe there's a place where you can sit in the sun and drink liter mugs of belgian beer? (fast track to destruction :)
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:17am Cheri Pi:

WFMU listener meetup in Paris! That sounds excellent!!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:18am glenn:

well, i don't think there isn't a single team that has never choked, but they do seem prone to it, that's fer sure.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:19am Dave B:

I lost respect for Australians after "Young Einstein"
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:19am fred:

@fred: Bouillon Belge doesn't have liter mugs nor outside tables, but has the WMD you're talking about in both variety and quantity.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:19am Unclear on the concept:

Great Babylon set. Amityville is next, right?
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:20am glenn:

i gained respect for australians after "the dish".
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:20am Meghan:

Oh Dave.... It's just Yahoo Serious. Don't blame all Austrialians for his lameness....
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:20am Elwyn:

@Dave B: You monster! How could you NOT love an Aussie scientist who rocks?
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:20am Meghan:

Unclear... Babylon is in Iraq... so a little segue you know....
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:21am Dave B:

I KEED... I KEED!!!!

@Unclear - Copaigue, Lindenhurst first....
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:22am glenn:

on the other hand, flight of the conchords has made new zealand dead to me.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:23am mohawkdave!:

dAMMIT; missed the slits...... =:( stupid work.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:25am Meghan:

here's to stupid work! CHEERS!

GASP! how can you say that about Flight of the Conchords?!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:26am pierre:

@ Cheri Pi : it would be great to have all of you here !

@ fred : i'm not a beer places specialist (althougth i enjoy it), i know near this area there must be places with terasse and good beer, a start at the Bouillon Belge, and then moving (or not) to other places.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:27am glenn:

it's easy. next to little britain, flight of the conchords is the worst thing i've ever seen.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:27am Dave B:

OK - I take that back. It WAS just Yahoo Serious. Dundee kinda sucked too
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:29am Elwyn:

@Dave: Next you'll slag off Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:30am Andy in Berlin:

  Thu. 9/29/11 8:30am cubicle carl:

banana stand
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:31am luh3417:

if you want to see an Australian film that will change your view about Australian films I recommend Bad Boy Bubby
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:31am Dave B:

Nah. The Max Trilogy was pretty good.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:31am Dave B:

Romper Stomper was pretty good too!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:32am glenn:

picnic at hanging rock.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:32am Meghan:

Awww, feel better Andy! That is miserable!

Ha! Carl, sadly Dave beat you to the banana stand!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:33am luh3417:

man of flowers
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:33am Andy in Berlin:

Thanks Meghan - working on it...
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:34am tivey:

Meghan ... "O, Afghanistan" by the Firesign Theatre (1980)
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:34am glenn:

and anything with noah taylor or thandie newton.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:35am luh3417:

last but not least Wake In fright
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:36am Elwyn:

Russell Crowe was at his best when he guest starred as Shirty the Slightly Aggressive Bear in "The Late Show" (a skit show)
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:38am glenn:

oh, and there was a show called the games ( i think) about the preparation for the sydney olympics. that was hilarious.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:42am luh3417:

the games was great but again a New Zealander Fred Dag aka John Clarke in fact was largely responsible for it; but if we want to blame a film that got Australia into Ahghanistan then maybe Gallipoli?
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:42am fred von helsing:

wait... the show is traveling to Bananastan ?
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:44am glenn:

i do like gallipoli. personally, if i was a british soldier, i would have shot all the british officers before i shot anybody else.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:48am Parq:

Much as I would love to go to a WFMU meet-up in Paris, I was kind of hoping the Underwater meet-up would be accessible by MTA or PATH.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:49am Dave B:

kinda wishing I was still at the old office now...

  Thu. 9/29/11 8:49am Andrew:

great music tonight ^_^ some songs i found that you played too.
you've done a good job finding songs for these countries tonight ^_^
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:49am Meghan:

Sadly, I will not be a part of the Paris meet up..... though I think that would be amazing! I am thinking I might do a skee ball meet up.....
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:50am Meghan:

Thanks Andrew! Next week..... now that is where I maybe sink! or stink! ha!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:50am glenn:

i want roller derby meet up.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:51am Andrew:

Young Einstein is one of my favourite movies! (just scrolling up & catchign up)
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:51am pierre:

yeah the point of the WFMU parisian meet up, is to greet fmu-ers friends in the city, its for all shows, djs, listeners… !
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:51am fred von helsing:

skeeball and MTA, that don't sound half bad either
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:52am mohawkdave!:

Mother Fmu-ers!
Skee Ball and/or Roller Derby!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:53am Meghan:

Mohawkdave and Jeff..... can you get to Brooklyn on a Friday night?
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:53am James Caan:

Rollerball!!!! I'm in!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:53am glenn:

i figured nobody would do a ball hockey meet up. so i went for the next best thing.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:54am Dave B:


  Thu. 9/29/11 8:54am Mike East:

I heard the Babylon set on the way in to work. Nice to hear you on the airwaves!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:55am Meghan:

Ha! Thanks Mike..... at first I read it as Middle East.....
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:56am mohawkdave!:

mohawkdave can make it most any Friday night if planned in advance. Is he hearing Meetup ala Brooklyn? That would be swell!
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:56am Parq:

Meghan, I had a great time at the last meet up in Coney Island and would be quite pleased to attend another one.
  Thu. 9/29/11 8:56am jeff p:

  Thu. 9/29/11 8:58am Dave B:
