I wouldn’t run to the border, I’d walk: David Marcus talks RMM


David Marcus plays the voice of the Reporter in Radio Mara Mara. Click for tix.

In Radio Mara Mara, Masa the DJ plays tracks for a fleeing populace. If you were running to the border, what song would def be on your playlist, and why?

Bye Bye Blackbird, Miles Davis live at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. It’s slow and cool, I wouldn’t run to the border, I’d walk. It’s like crossing the street, nobody looks cool running across the street.

E.G. and Leoni live exiled from Mara Mara and the Leunsa Valley for over a decade, all the while missing the sweet sweet fruit of the Grundub Tree. If you were exiled from New York [or insert here the place you call home], what’s the one food you would most miss?

Mama’s fried chicken and Mac and cheese. But it’s gone so I miss it already.

The DJ and the Archivist are well aware of the need to pack a kit for any kind of extended journey, either into the Wet Mara Canyons, or running from violence. What’s the one, non-practical thing you would include in your disaster kit?

My great grandfather’s rosary.

If New York were bombed out and war torn, would you stay or would you go?

I’d be right here in Gotham, living up to Rick’s warning in Casablanca that: “…there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn’t advise you to try to invade.”
