Greetings Glenn and all others too sleepy to chime in yet! Welcome to another Monday, excited to bring you an interview with Giorgio Moroder today... coming up at 10:30am!

I dreamed of a giant dinosaur-shaped blimp that was being piloted by a small family not unlike a sea-vessel. I could see inside there were tiled floors, living room, etc... It was incredible!

@Jeezy, I guess it really is true that the children chose the family vehicle.

@KFBR, we are definitely not up yet.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 9:50am braveness23:

I am working in a building today where the water is off and no one was informed that it would be. The answer to the obvious next question is "it'll be back on when it's back on". So Liz, no fair playing any tracks with the sound of running water or talking about waterfalls and tall glasses of lemonade for a while. M'ok?
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 9:51am Liz Berg:

Whoa, B23, sounds like they should just shut the building down and send everyone home until the water is back! Will try to avoid H2O references if I can help it!

Working in a place with no water is not so pleasant.

i had this 7" when i was a kid. i remember kissing a girl named kelly while we were listening to it.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:05am Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember hearing the Midnight Express tune when I was in college. At the time, it seemed like the coolest thing ever.
  Mon. 6/10/13 10:06am xezzy:

Isn't still? Can't wait for interview now, I wish I didn't know though, I'd be screaming with joy if it would surprise me.
  Mon. 6/10/13 10:08am common:

and i saw the movie when i was a kid. still don't know why that happened.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:10am Dan B From Upstate:

Still have never seen midnight express but my late teens early 20s self loved this song because of art bell.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:11am tim from champaign:

Common - It happened because some American jackass tried to smuggle dope out of Turkey. Or are you talking about seeing the movie as a kid?
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:19am braveness23:

@xezzy, please don't use words like "pouring" for the time being, ok?
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:19am pat.dc:

holy shit Liz. I was just about to request Richard Dawson. I stayed up till midnight listening to him last night. hanx.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:24am braveness23:

The big fat fuzzy bass synth is making all of my suffering worth it! Thanks Liz!

Gummy Moroder! Great Job Liz!
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:51am pat.dc:

oh yeah, I guess he did write mahnamahna. Genius.

He shoulda also covered Winchester Cathedral. or did he? lol

Thanks everyone, what a treat to get to meet one of my favorite musical heroes!
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:54am pat.dc:

...or he just recorded it? I dunno what I talk aboot.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:54am Mike East:

Thanks for bringing that to us, Liz. He looks like such a nice guy in that picture. Not at all what I had expected.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:55am efd:

Yeah, it ("Mahna Mahna") was written by Piero Umiliani.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:55am tim from champaign:

Wow, I've never heard this side of Moroder. This is awesome!
!
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:55am G:

@ME: what did you expect him to look like? curious! :p
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:55am efd:

"Son Of My Father" alone qualifies Giorgio Moroder for a lifetime achievement award, as far as I'm concerned. Everything else is just gravy.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:56am listener james from westwood:

i watched bbc documentaries on krautrock and british synthpop over the weekend to prepare. glad to have a big burst of moroder music today to follow it up!
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:57am Liz Berg:

Giorgio was the first of many to cover "Mahna Mahna" (1968). I agree about "Son of My Father" being one of the best songs ever written, efd!
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 10:58am efd:

The instrumental version of "Son Of My Father" on one of those Schlagermoroder discs (listed as "part 2) is also pretty awesome.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:59am Mike East:

@G - I dunno...I think I expected him to be more pretentious. Perhaps just a stereotype I have about synth people. He looks very humble in that picture.

agree about Son of My Father.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 10:59am Liz Berg:

There was a great 2-part BBC radio documentary about Giorgio Moroder recently, but now I see the beeb won't let you listen to it anymore. Boo.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 11:00am G:

and here we are on the road to (so to speak) the Coast to Coast AM theme
  Mon. 6/10/13 11:06am brandon:

fuck yeah, Liz! i love gorgio, even though he loves lady gaga and rihanna... i was born in 1980, and something about the music from around that time 78ish to 82ish... speaks to my soul! thank you!
  Mon. 6/10/13 11:16am brandon:

like putting out fire with gaso-leeene!
  Mon. 6/10/13 11:16am blee:

English spelling is embedded in your habituation? :p

  Mon. 6/10/13 11:24am brandon:

there's one "palm springs ride" or "night drive" or something, haha, giorgio didn't hold back on that one...
  Mon. 6/10/13 11:26am blee:

It's my American ignorance.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 11:27am tim from champaign:

Seems like Giorgio's soundtrack work has obviously influenced recent soundtracks. For instance, Drive and Spring Breakers. Pretty cool to me.
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:28am listener james from westwood:

"machines" has its "scarface"-y bits here and there. not a bad thing by any means.
  Mon. 6/10/13 11:28am brandon:

nas and mobb deep used this beat!
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:28am listener james from westwood:

ah, and there's the "scarface" track i was thinking of. well done liz!
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 11:28am tim from champaign:

Wow, I had a terrible reaction when I watched the Moroder soundtracked Metropolis 15 years ago. I wanted to call the cops it bugged me so much. I may have to give it another try.
Avatar Mon. 6/10/13 11:29am ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Just tuning in and will have to time travel back for the Moroder madness.

Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:30am listener james from westwood:

always wondered how much the opening credits music to this film drew from "the cold song," but i don't know if nomi's version was out by that point.

Liz Bergio!!!!
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:37am Liz Berg:

I definitely didn't want to ask Giorgio any questions about his work with Donna Summer because EVERY interview with him seems to focus solely on that aspect of his career. However, it WAS a crowning moment in music history and a great song, so I can't resist playin' the hit!
  Mon. 6/10/13 11:38am Sammy:

Some songs never get old. Thanks Liz!
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:40am listener james from westwood:

excellent call on both counts.
from what i've read and heard about this cut's release, it was like e= mc2 for a lot of folks in dance and electronic music at the time.

I Feel Love still sounds great. And I had extended version of Chase on 12" which I wore out. Sorry I missed him at Cielo. Did you get any feedback about that gig, Liz?
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:55am listener james from westwood:

hah, completely spaced on this album when i mentioned e=mc2 in my comment! i meant "i feel love" up there of course. :D
Avatar    Mon. 6/10/13 11:56am Liz Berg:

Didn't make it to Giorgio's DJ gig, but heard great things! Sounded like a sweaty fun dance party! Hope he returns soon!

that was one hell of a Moroder homage
