Is there a song titled "England sucks at soccer?" You don't have to play it. It was just witnessed.

...omg these are outstanding tracks...

Oh yeah..... I found some great stuff for today's show!!!

Whoa, ya had me fooled there Meghan, I thought you were Rob until I looked. Always enjoy your take on global, esp the love of African....

I'm tricky that way! Thanks Will! I've planned out a good one tonight! All African!

Hi Meghan! ALWAYS a pleasure to see you and Milou!
Bummed I missed the last fill-in... but "Trans-African" is one of your specialties, so: TWENDE! ("Let's go!)

Hi, Meghan. What a treat it is when you're called to fill in. I saw that HotRod is filling in for Sasha soon. If you need any more Middle Eastern tracks, you can scan her playlists for some leads.

Just a note: New Guinea is not in Africa!
Still loving your show!

HA! See PEE..... There are three Guinea's in Africa.... I just saw Guinea and threw it in there! My bad! That went in the wrong folder!

@Meghan: One GREAT track after another, and by my personal testimony: the BEST set of sweeping/mopping/dusting music EVER!

note to self: nix on the durian snax
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 7:53pm coelacanth:

Hi Meghan; mermaids; mermen

- i Love all this african music
  Sat. 6/11/16 7:54pm ponychamp666:

I've never been bothered by the smell of durian and always liked it! Local asian grocer makes delicious soy-based durian ice-cream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 7:54pm coelacanth:

i've heard fresh papaya tastes good, but i cannot deal with the vomit smell.
  Sat. 6/11/16 7:56pm ponychamp666:

papaya is also delicious i implore everyone here to get their fruit on ASAP
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 7:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I believe papaya aids digestion (papain) - as does pineapple...whereas melons have an enzyme that should be consumed separately from other foods. Fruit salad is a Science, man...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 7:59pm coelacanth:

the only fruit i eat regularly is lemon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 7:59pm Meghan:

I had to make rubber molds of papayas..... LOTS of molds from them. no issue with smell....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:00pm coelacanth:

most of the papain is in the leaves and green rind. most of the bromelaine is in the hard-ish core of the pineapple.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:00pm Meghan:

We used to feed pineapple to our rabbit because it broke down the fur they digest from licking themselves.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:02pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Lemon is supposed to help me not have another kidney stone - just as it dissolves teeth...potassium for us over consumers of caffeine & alkyhol &tc. ...& it makes water taste less like something fish reproduce in...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:04pm coelacanth:

yes. i 've also read that lemon makes water more utilizable in general, by acidifying it. it's also a liver astringent - aiding the flushing out of toxins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:06pm coelacanth:

magnesium is of prime importance to prevent stones, also...as well as being vital for strong bones. calcium alone will certainly make bones brittle, as the american diet aptly proves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Informative.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:09pm Meghan:

you can get a lot more of your minerals in your greens than one would think.... though I like roasting my veggies, so I lose most nutritional value
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:11pm coelacanth:

mmm, i'd love some roasted broccoli right now though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:13pm Meghan:

mmmmmm yes.... I roasted green beans the other night with garlic. Fan-freaking-tastic. Ohhhh, it's garlic scape season....

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:26pm coelacanth:

i'm very particular about my saxophones. i've never heard it in ethiopian music and not liked it.

'good way to put it. i get a haunted vibe from it.

Kimzilla, 90.1 is okay over here.

oh! never mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:30pm Meghan:

it does have a haunted vibe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I was talking w/ someone who had been to Africa - & he said the biggest widest theme he got from it was - they are all about Community. They dance together - & would never think of not doing it & being loners like we are...Simplistic I presume as most glib things must be for the largest continent ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...but - I think you can say they lock into rhythms together & play as ensembles in a way that's different from here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/11/16 8:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I don't suppose a African mini-metal set is in the cards tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:36pm Meghan:

I think a lot more of the language is the dances. They aren't self conscious. They are proud and a lot of the dances speak of pride
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:36pm Meghan:

ha! not tonight sadly.... my mini metal set..... that was so amazing when I found that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:37pm coelacanth:

get yer ass over here Ken, we got a mosh pit on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:39pm Meghan:

I'll stir up the pit with my microphone for you all
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/11/16 8:40pm coelacanth:

...i don't doubt that, Rabbit. there're some african brothers here in my town - exquisite drum makers, from ghana i believe....i think their straight-forwardness and friendliness puts some people off who aren't used to it.
