Bonsoir coel!
(Suddenly thought of Pee Wee's Playhouse!)
  9:38pm JakeGould:

Hello everyone! Really liked that Viv Albertine track… As well as this Luisa & Gabriella track.

(...only seen but a few moments of pee wee's playhouse.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm coelacanth:

'sup Jake!
  9:42pm JakeGould:

Pee Wee’s Playhouse is great! One of the last, true subversive kids shows.

Hi Tamar - nice music for a cool summer evening!
Avatar 9:47pm geezerette:

The way we all greet each other made me think of Pee Wee's world. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm coelacanth:

i've always had respect for that show and that man, based on many things i heard or read about it over the years; i just don't watch much tv, that's all.
  10:01pm sveb:

weird to mention perks for publishing elves
  Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Tamar:

Did I reveal an industry secret?
  10:04pm subjecttoochange:

Nice and juicy stuff tonight Tamar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - tasty but chill. Interesting to hear you do 'Pop' instead of the 'Worldy' thing. (?) Thx !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Webhamster Henry:

I saw Fiorello for my 4th birthday in 1960!
Avatar 10:32pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

About 90 minutes late here but thanks for Sandra Berry (though I think it's Barry)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm fleep:

Thank you for planning.
  Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Tamar:

Crikey, you're right, Todd-o-Phonic! Feeble eyes, small print. Corrected! (not so much the eyes)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good evening, Tamar and various vertebrates.
Avatar 10:50pm Howard F:

Good evening Tamar & wfmu listeners! Really liked that Daniela Casa track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Chop Scott:

So nice to hear you tonight--Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I just noticed the background color is almost the same shade of green as my store-bought guacamole. What a life!
  10:54pm Marc:

Getting what?
  Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Tamar:

Shh, Marc. It's a metaphor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm fleep:

What do you want me to confess to? I'm ready now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Webhamster Henry:

Do you know Metric Man? www.metricworld.net...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Webhamster Henry:

I used to have the Metric Man record and it's a whole lot funkier than this guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'd walk a mile to hear that song again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey @Ken I was over at the FDR Library on Sunday, to take my mother there and to do my traditional apology for the political state of the US to Franklin and Eleanor.
  Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Tamar:

That's the highlight of the Metric Park record. The Meters are pretty funky, though, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@WH - Cool ... did you hear him spinning in his grave? The new visitor center building is pretty nice. I like the mosaic map on the floor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Webhamster Henry:

I like Daniela Goggi's version a little better!
  11:38pm Karkuss:

1213 and 1248 exchange
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm melinda:

I like Canteloupe Island.
  11:40pm Karkuss:

the Louis Prima Mary Poppins record has a decent version also
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...to find Cantaloupe Island - follow the fluorescent guacamole @ your local grocer...
  Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Tamar:

Fluorescent Guacamole is a good name for a record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

From the Things I Wish I Hadn't Eaten album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it got glowing reviews...
