Traveled by train from Tangiers to Marrakesh once, the speaker in the car could not be turned off or down. Minor modalities the entire way. Oh, and everyone smoked, like it was a cure for cancer.

A fascinating way to get thee is the ferry from Spain to Ceuta, an autonomous city enclave (7 square miles) on the African coast. You get a taxi to the border and you go from the 21st century to the 13th just like that. en.wikipedia.org...

and of course Ceuta is NOTHING like Gibraltar :-P

Sounds pretty cool, Sem.
And of course I'd like to visit the Rock as well if I'm ever in the area.

Gibraltar would be a very weird slightly claustrophobic place for a bender. True fact: There's more miles of roadway inside the rock than outside it.

WFMU should relocate to the UK for Music and Art funding
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/3/13 7:19am Meghan:

MK, are you saying that all of us DJ's would get relocated too? Cause the commute would be a bit much otherwise.....

Feeling quite blocked
She said with a shock
"Tonight it''ll be milk of magnesia"

or relocate WFMU to Gib as a tax dodge and source of cheap libation
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 7:26am Matt from Springfield:

That's a good idea FVH!
With cuts to arts funding, the tax dodge route might be better.
There's the Channel Islands, but not as fun as Gibraltar. Then again the Cayman Islands are much more convenient to us!

"BBC Radio WFMU", from the BBC manchester studios, like "BBC 6 Music"..? Get rid of the rubbish "Radio 1 or 2"
  Thu. 10/3/13 7:43am stevo:

Hi Meghan,loving this African trip,if you get the chance type ''andy Kershaw rachid taha ''into google .
He's a dj on BBC radio 3 who has done dozen's (hundred's?) of broadcast's from around Africa but hardly any get archived.
(Shame on you BBC!)
Anyway the broadcast with Rachid is still available to listen to and it's amazing,talk's to Rachid about Joe Strummer/Clash influence etc. but my favourite's are the 'rap' group Distance (spelling?) who's second number is just way too infectious and also when he describe's the silence of the Sahara desert.
Check it out....
  Thu. 10/3/13 7:43am Marmalade Kitty:

FMU would function with a teenth of the Radio1 budget..
  Thu. 10/3/13 7:45am Marmalade Kitty:

Radio2 is sooo shiiiiiiiiiiiiiite!
  Thu. 10/3/13 7:47am stevo:

Totally agree Marmalade and despite there massive funding they still can't archive any of the good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/3/13 7:47am Meghan:

Thanks Stevo.... I will have to check it out!

Totally enjoying the Africa tour. Love these North African rhythms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/3/13 7:51am Meghan:

Thanks Duke! It can be that type of music that grates some people or they can love it. After traveling to Turkey, it really opened my ears to the more middle eastern sound. I enjoy it.
  Thu. 10/3/13 7:53am stevo:

Do you ever listen to 6 music Marmalade ?
In particular Marc Riley,Gideon Coe,Jarvis Cocker....all good stuff.
I stopped listening to radio2 when (thankfully) 6 music started 'bout 10 year's ago.

My mistake,with you saying I usually listening here I thought you live in the US but (I think)you mean you ''listen'' to WFMU exclusively.

Miss Meghan, your remarks portrayed this Libya set as largely from hunger, as folks hereabouts used to say, but if you ask me, this is one of the strongest sets of the show. Nice going!

Oh and Meghan,not that you need to worry or anything but I listen to WFMU ALL DAY EVERY DAY,and go 6 music at night when I get in from work (except Friday night's Billy Jam,and weekend's,Jeffrey,Bob,Monica,Nardwuar....
Sheesh,i'm getting all defensive now!!

It's the same feeling when you listen to classical romantic music - you can see it pregnant of hollywood shit

I wish I could listen to WFMU all the time. At work I am stuck listening to pop Spanish music. It's horrible. I make fun of it the entire time.

My heart go's out to you Meghan,i work for myself and while it's no bed of rose's the plus point is I get to listen to what I want all day,laptop/Denon amp and Teac speaker's!!
Sorry if i'm making you jealous....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/3/13 8:30am Meghan:

I used to get to listen to what I wanted. Sadly, listening via headphones is difficult, I tried. My job is too dirty/messy/sticky, that the cord gets in the way, or ear bud pops out right when your hands are the most messy.....
