Listening in from Iceland, knocking back some cold ones. Cheers!

WFMU party never ends, so you can't be late.

Been loving the Captured Tracks Flying Nun reissues!

@Ottar Send my regards to all the Elves... and to everyone there for the pots and pans rebellion.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 3:52pm common:

fleep, your dolphin is always calming to me
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 3:57pm glenn:

that's because of the endolphins.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 3:58pm common:

glenn: yes
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:00pm fleep:

common, dolphins are carnivorous predators that hunt in organized packs, and sometimes go on killing rampages when they're sexually frustrated, but if that has a calming influence on you, glad to be of service.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:01pm common:

fleep: i still love them and they calm me.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:10pm fleep:

common, me, too. the dolphin avatar started out as a fluke, back in 1988 on a BBS, while the Web was still a twinkle in Tim Berners-Lee's eyes. someday, fleep might even move.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:10pm Sigurdur:

I kinda like this shit
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:14pm braveness23:

B23 here. Hello Paul, hello WFMU friends!
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:24pm fleep:

Yo, Sigurdur, I kinda like this shit, also.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:25pm Baby New Year Zero:

I'm not sure how I went the entire year without hearing that Nuclear Spring tune. I'm searching online for a copy right now.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:30pm Mailman Tom:

I've listened to all your archived shows, and it's always a pleasure to hear a new one from you!
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:35pm DJ PB:

@Tom: Wow! Thanks!

@BGZ: I probably should have mentioned, the Nuclear Spring 12" is not only easily purchased but also available as a free and legal download! hysteriarecords.bigcartel.com...
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:36pm Maria T:

Thanks again for the WFMU airplay!
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:41pm Baby New Year Zero:

Purchased! Thanks PB!
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:41pm DJ PB:

Thanks for making a record worth playing, Maria!
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:42pm bluebird online:

@Fleep how could a dolphin start out as a fluke (whale)? That sounds like a demotion on the evolutionary scale. hehe Sorry, I just couldn't stop myself.

Got a shiny new haircut to impress all the grannies with on New Years eve. But it is going to cost me a visit to the archives to catch this cool collection fashioned by DJPB.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:42pm Jon Solomon:

Radio on! Listener profile finally created! Avatar up? We'll see.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:43pm Maria T:

HIIIIIII JONNNNNNNNNN
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:44pm Ike:

91.1 off the air.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:45pm Jon Solomon:

This is one of my favorite songs of 2013, but I am saddened Paul B. did not hamfistedly overdub the word "freaking" in his own voice to replace each curse.
  Sat. 12/28/13 4:46pm Ashley Morey:

FM signal is down :(
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:46pm Snortley:

Yep. That transmitter's at it again, apparently.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:46pm Skirkie:

Yo. Radio's down
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:47pm Skirkie:

Yo, radio''s back up.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:47pm Ike:

91.1 is back!
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:47pm Snortley:

Signal's back.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:55pm Peteski:

They said there will be dolphins, where are the dolphins? (great show paulie! as always)
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:57pm Snortley:

91.1 gone again.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 4:58pm Snortley:

And back.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 4:59pm fleep:

Peteski, sorry, was cleaning the tank. Amazing amount of cat hair, for a tank.

I Like the Cut o' your Jib Paulie B !!!
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 5:05pm DJ PB:

Nice of you to join the party, Jon. I got your "package." Your generosity will be remember in, say, a slot or two.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 5:06pm DJ PB:

Everyone, Station Manager Ken says we're having electrical problems. If 91.1 goes out again, listen online if you can!
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 5:12pm Maria T:

Thanks for reminding me of all the records I forgot to put down on my own "Best of 2013" list, PB.
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 5:16pm listener mark:

Great show Paulie B. ! Eleven fill ins this year? That calls for a promotion. Senior Principal Executive Associate Producer Level II
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 5:17pm DJ PB:

It's Jon Solomon's fault for not slipping you a "reminder."
  Sat. 12/28/13 5:19pm Dave:

good stuff as usual. plus I had to answer a math question to post this, so I feel a lot smarter now
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 5:29pm DJ PB:

@Dave: You + me + radio = ROCK!
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 5:30pm DJ PB:
