And most inspirational moments are just that...fleeting. But here's the
beauty of radio; sometimes... you can be transported back to a place by
immersing yourself in its sounds...like the time Jim Metzner brought us
to Marrakesh, Morocco.

There's a certain electricity in the air that occurs whenever humans gather together
in one spot, and there are places on earth which are designed to attract and contain this
collective energy. We call them commons, town squares, arenas, and over the years, certain of
these places have achieved legendary status, not the least of which is the Djemaa El Fnan
in Marrakesh, Morocco.
The Djemaa El Fnan is, for many, the heart of the city. A central gathering place where tourists mingle with the local folks.
