Good morning everyone!

Good morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03am Meghan:

Hope all is well and safe where you are!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

Hey everyone. I'm less moody this week. One of my missing mail parcels turned up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04am ParUbi:

Good morning, bio-survival team!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05am Meghan:

Good morning ParUbi! Good evening Elwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07am leshwatt:

Good morning from a distance!
  7:08am Dave B.:

hey hey stay away
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09am Meghan:

Radio is the perfect form of social distancing, but remaining social!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09am Meghan:

morning Leshwatt and Dave!
  7:09am Dave B.:

broadcasting from home?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11am Meghan:

Not yet! I SHOULD be getting the last cable today... then we shall see if it all works. Delivery is a lot slower, I ordered this thing 2 weeks ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

So is this pre-recorded then sent in?
  7:14am Dave B.:

let me know if i can be of any help from afar... by the way: https://www.actioned.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/working-from-home-meme-29.jpg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15am Meghan:

No Elwyn- Playlist from July 20, 2017! What was life like back then?! Hmmmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16am Meghan:

ha that meme is for Jeff!
  7:18am Listener Robert:

So what I gather from the above is that Meghan's getting deliveries intended for Spatulator in 2017.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19am Meghan:

Hahahahaha! Good morning Robert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

OK. I'm a big confused because the main page says "Live DJ". I knew you're live on the message boards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23am Meghan:

I'm not a dead DJ. Yes, There are still a bunch of us that haven't done any prerecorded shows or done any live remote broadcasting. I promised that I was going to put a new show together for next week.... we shall see!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23am Meghan:

OHHH! I don't have a sore throat! I am 100% OK! Just some allergies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25am Meghan:

Come on Meghan from the past! It was Grandmaster Flash!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28am ParUbi:

If only we could warn past-Meghan about the future!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29am Meghan:

Oh seriously! There would be SOOOO many things I would have told her! Buy stock in toilet paper and Clorox wipes, don't take that job, this one night, you will get too drunk... sooo many things!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36am Stanley:

Hi Meghan. Just a quick flip from the other side to say hello.
Ooo, African music. You can take it from here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36am leshwatt:

So if you go back and listen to this show in the archives, and read the comments, do they come from 2017 or 2020? Or both?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38am Meghan:

This one will be archived with these comments, but the comments from 2017 will still be there. We are doing this all separately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38am Meghan:

Hello Stanley! Hope all is well over by you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42am WR:

July 2017 we hardly knew you. Let's get better acquainted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43am Meghan:

haha, morning WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46am Stanley:

We're fine, just doing what has to be done.
It's taken me a week to get used to working from my small flat; files, computer etc perched on the edge of a chest of drawers. WFMU on constantly, bar a bit of tv in the evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47am ParUbi:

I'm leaving WFMU on when I'm not around for the parakeets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48am Meghan:

Yeah, all of a sudden adding a workspace from home has become cumbersome! My husband is trying to teach classes and is having a hard time finding a back drop in our house that won't distract the students. I don't have a lot of plain space!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49am ParUbi:

Do you have gallery walls?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50am Stanley:

Yeah, you don't want them seeing your tropical island wall mural.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51am Meghan:

hahaha. Just lots of art and items to see.... He's sitting in front of armoire with a bunch of old fans on top of it. One of his fellow teachers commented on the fans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56am Meghan:

OH NO! Advil and Tylenol is a bad combo! It made my throat feel better BUT it made me photosensitive! I had the biggest rash on my body... Anything that saw the sun! I went to see Amadou and Mariam the following night and was broken out in the BIGGEST rash!
  7:58am elwyn:

the drug i have had the most problems with are nurofen. it gave me stomach ulcers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01am ParUbi:

I am pretending my classes are podcasts and recording audio lectures. They suck. I stuttered through one of them and coughed my way through the other yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01am Meghan:

Yeah for some reason, taking both Tylenol and Advil together makes you hyper photosensitive. And that summer I didn't have health insurance so I was scared to go to a doctor for fear that it would cost us a crazy amount. But it was all good in the end. Happy ending. I am here and learned from my mistake! The doctor was like- OH YEAH! That combo is bad! hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02am ParUbi:

We used to do that combo with the kids, yikes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02am Meghan:

Oh no ParUbi! I keep telling my husband to stop getting in the habit of swearing in front of his computer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06am ParUbi:

Maybe I need bed music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06am Meghan:

Ohhhh yes! I love it! Lecture bed music!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06am ParUbi:

Or This American Life style, play Penguin Cafe Orchestra or some shit like that in the background
  8:15am Dave B.:

meghan - for jeff, and then he can chroma key in a picture of the classroom

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17am Meghan:

ahhhh the green screen challenge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17am Stanley:

I love this track. In fact the whole show is lifting my beleaguered heart, immensely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20am Meghan:

Isn't it amazing how African music can do that?! I feel the same way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21am Meghan:

I have the most amazing dog snuggles happening right now.... that lifts my spirit too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21am Stanley:

You have a real dog?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23am Meghan:

Yup! Bailey! She's a German Shorthair Pointer mix...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26am Stanley:

Bailey! How lovely (I looked it up)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27am Meghan:

She's my little Oreo McFlurry
Avatar 8:40am Malcolm:

morning meghan and listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am Meghan:

morning Malcolm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42am ParUbi:

Does she speak German? Bitte Sitzen, Hund!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42am Meghan:

My old dog did! He knew Platz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43am Stanley:

Sweet Sweet Mbombo - you can say that again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45am ParUbi:

We have a Husky/Pomeranian mix and an Alapaha American bulldog
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46am Meghan:

Oh man, I am going to have this song in my head for the rest of the day.... Sweetie!!! Sweetie!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50am Doug Schulkind:

The underwater has been so warm and lovely this morning! I could stay in here all day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52am Meghan:

I am glad I picked this archive.... something that whisks you away to happy warm places....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52am ParUbi:

What do you guys think about Mdou Moctar? I know everyone played a bit of him during the pledge season...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52am ParUbi:

Howdy, neighbor Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52am Meghan:

Oh that last album of his was AMAZING. It was in my list of top releases of last year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53am Stanley:

A kenyan outfit with a right old blend here - Congolese with South African Kwazulu thing going. Grooving along nicely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53am ParUbi:

I got his new single after hearing it during the pledge season. Definitely need to dig deeper into his discography. I like the electrified but traditionally informed style he seems to have
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54am Doug Schulkind:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55am Meghan:

Oh you will be pleasantly happy with it. He's young and doing great stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56am ParUbi:

Then there was that 75 Dollar Bill album that seemed to borrow a lot from north African music...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59am Stanley:

Terrific re-run, Meghan. Thanks very much.
A great pick from almost everywhere in the Sub Sahara.
Except The Congo. Maybe save that for one on it's own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59am Doug Schulkind:

More than seemed, ParUbi! Che Chen studied Mauritian guitar deeply.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00am Meghan:

Thanks all! I hope to give you all a new show next week! Stay safe everyone! Stay healthy and sane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00am Stanley:

Take care Meghan. Bye for now.
