I think last year on FB I got all Union Proud on Labor Day. Used that very woodcut and that pin as my wallpaper and profile respectively

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 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 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 Swag For Life Member 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 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 Swag For Life Member 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 1:58pm Meghan:

Samantha is still on....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.
Avatar Thu. 8/31/17 1:59pm Dave B:

TWIZZLERS = #FAKELICORICE
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/31/17 2:00pm Meghan:

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! :)
