Hello everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04am Meghan:

morning Elwyn! Errr, more like evening for you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

I've been listening to They Might Be Giants' "Your Racist Friend" a lot this week and to a lesser extent The Specials' "Racist Friend".
Avatar 7:07am Sem:

Good morning, Ms. M., Spatulator.

Sam and his message for times. Poignant pick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08am Meghan:

morning Sem! Hope all is well up north!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

Hello Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12am leshwatt:

Morning folks. Good start for the morning Meghan. What’s so funny about peace, love and understanding?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14am Meghan:

Morning leshwatt! I've kept it to only black musicians... and one protest today.
  7:15am Dave B.:

Hey hey

Strawberries imminent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20am Meghan:

Morning Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21am Meghan:

Sem, you are so getting ready for baking!!! strawberries and rhubarb everything!
Avatar 7:22am Sem:

haha, that's about the size of it.
  7:23am Dave B.:

Dont discount all those apartheid songs.
  7:23am Dave B.:

That whole system was fucked from the get go...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24am Meghan:

I don't discount them, but it's just funny when you look up protest songs in Africa that is the only place you find them. What is sad about it is that all these other countries were going through similar things and it's just the history isn't written down, but the songs are the only thing that tell the story...
  7:29am Dave B.:

Thank you for the GSH. I was gonna suggest “Running”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30am annie:

perfect time to log in!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30am leshwatt:

That’s the difference. The revolution is now televised. Surprised riots aren’t sponsored by Ford and McDonalds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31am Meghan:

You know what.... Next week YOU all can pick your protest songs! You can get it off your chest too!
  7:31am Dave B.:

And with any hope in humanity the events we have been will be a tipping point of awakening, much the same as the anti-apartheid movement of the 80s.

And hello Elwyn
Avatar 7:32am Brian in UK:

Hello Meghan from mini-me UK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33am Meghan:

only a mini you? hello Brian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34am annie:

i hear that the video of the destruction of the comfort supplies station here in asheville made it to the mainstream...pretty rad, yo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37am Meghan:

the one that I saw before starting my show this morning was the older white man being shoved in Buffalo and hitting his head with blood. And you see the police's reaction as- oh shit....and one goes to see if he's ok and gets pushed back by another cop to leave him as another calls for EMS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38am annie:

these displays of outright aggression are stunningly disgusting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40am Meghan:

it really is. soberingly heartbreaking (if that is a word....)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44am annie:

i hope the talk of "defunding" police departments actually produces results. many of these extra forces are contractors, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45am annie:

homeland security has to spend the money somehow, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

On a positive note, Trump is under house arrest, effectively.
  7:56am Dave B.:

It would bse better if Trump were under one of those 16 ton Monty Python weights....

If only Dave.... if only!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01am Charlie:

Hi Meghan--
Playlist says you're talking, stream says James Brown is playing, but I'm hearing an African waka-waka track. ?
  8:02am Howlin Blind Scotsman:

Woke up late but woke up to Fela . Thanks Megan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02am Meghan:

hahaha, I just noticed that myself.... fixed. Thanks Charlie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04am Meghan:

HBS, well at least Fela track is long!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04am Charlie:

oh ok! thought it sounded like fela (just tuning in, obvs:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09am Charlie:

(equally happy of course to wake up to JB, Fela, or you talkin'!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09am annie:

@Dave B: i love the safe squashing the dog in Fish called wanda, much more satisfying imagining the orange under there instead
Avatar 8:09am Brian in UK:

Hello Charlie, still missing your show, hope the studies are progressing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12am Charlie:

Hi Brian! I finished school in December:) Workin' at the library, with expanded duties.
Avatar 8:13am Brian in UK:

Charlie, your are wearing spandex in the library?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14am Charlie:

under my street clothes, Brian. ready to spring into superhero action at a moment's notice.
Avatar 8:15am Brian in UK:

Should put my glasses on when writing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16am Meghan:

hahaha... I love the idea of Charlie as a library superhero.
  8:16am Howlin Blind Scotsman:

I always assumed Trump would die from anal prolapse while taking a hobby on a map of the world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18am Meghan:

Don't let Trump die like Elvis... taking jobbies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22am Doug Schulkind:

Conan the Librarian!
Avatar 8:22am Brian in UK:

This is a job for Dewey, Decimal Classification Man.
Avatar 8:23am Brian in UK:

Hello Doug, that has whiskers on it. Still funny though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28am WR:

Fire and brimstone Friday morning to ya all.
  8:28am Dave B.:

The BONE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29am Meghan:

Morning Doug and WR!
  8:37am Howlin Blind Scotsman:

I was just listening to this bad brain track for the first time in years yesterday
  8:41am Howlin Blind Scotsman:

Even better that it is the spirit electricity version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42am Meghan:

Scottish Dave- Post up the songs you think should be played for next week. Pick your protest songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56am Charlie:

cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00am WR:

WFMU drummer hosts have been playing so many great movement/ protest songs, have to think hard for something to add.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03am WR:

And first time to listen to the el violador chant. Had read about it but not taken the time to listen, thank you for adding it today.
