Thanks to Gaylord for introducing me to Birdie, Dolly Mixture and Debsy Wykes

@Kate: "Dream Come True," indeed! How are you, my friend?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:09pm Gaylord Fields:

@maggiemaggie: I promote Debsey for my own selfish purposes, but I'm glad you love her as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/7/18 8:10pm Bob in Oakland:

Truly a wonderful interview and theme for the show! Both Dolly Mixture and Birdie are high on my list of all-time favorites.
  Sun. 1/7/18 8:11pm Kate:

;) I'm well and happy to be back with Sunday night radio! Hope you had a great holiday season
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:11pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm glad I "accidentally" left in that interruption. Not sorry I deliberately left in the dual burping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bob in Oakland: I've wanted to do this for years! She's one of my all-time favorite musical artists, and Demonstration Tapes is my "grab one LP if my house is on fire" disc.
Avatar Sun. 1/7/18 8:20pm Papayo:

DOLLY MIXTURE wooow GREAT GIRL BAND
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:21pm Gaylord Fields:

Hey Gaylord, all! Made it here late, but glad I did. Awesomely, Wykes in a 2007 interview was all about listening to northern soul

Hello everyone.

Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:36pm Gaylord Fields:

There's a Dolly Mixture documentary called Take Three Girls, directed by Paul Kelly (ex-East Village and Debsey's partner in song and love). If you can locate it, I recommend it highly, as well as Paul's other films.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarplumfairywolf: No France Gall tribute, alas. (Apologies to those expecting Ray Thomas and/or Jerry Van Dyke encomiums as well.)
  Sun. 1/7/18 8:38pm sugarplumfairywolf:

How We Used to Live Paul Kelly?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Little Danny: Hi! I could see that. Birdie is somewhat (but not overly) informed by that musical genre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarplumfairywolf: The one and the same!
Avatar Sun. 1/7/18 8:39pm Papayo:

@GF: I am sure Trouble and/or Sheila B will be playing some France Gall this week. I found the Time Out article about French Pop that was one of my introductions to FG!!!

This is more fun than watching award shows.

loving this interview and hearing all the dm songs makes me soooo happpppppy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:46pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc Francis: Hey-hey-hey (to quote Dolly Mixture)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:47pm Gaylord Fields:

@robin: I made a Demonstration Tapes cassette for you, right?
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:49pm Old Dave:

@sugarplum, let's all vow to never watch another award show, ever. There are just too many
and they make us all crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:51pm Gaylord Fields:

It was incredibly tough choosing just a dozen or so Dolly Mixture songs to represent them for the purpose of this show.
Avatar Sun. 1/7/18 8:51pm robin:

decades ago, it feels like! that is a resounding yes. i may have worn it out...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:53pm Gaylord Fields:

@robin: I'm sure the songs are now available in the digital realm, which makes my role obsolete.
  Sun. 1/7/18 8:53pm Matthew Kaplan Superstar:

Fantastic to turn on the radio and hear Dolly Mixture, totally poptastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/7/18 8:54pm common:

this is very fine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matthew Kaplan Superstar: Hope you're well, friend! Glad you found me and them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@common: Truly so.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:55pm maggiemaggie:

Love Debsey Wykes's voice
  Sun. 1/7/18 8:56pm Matthew Kaplan Superstar:

Even though I could listen to all of the vinyl here, it will be so much fun hearing you play them. Ask why the complete box set was missing a track
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/7/18 8:56pm common:

indeed, gaylord! I love finding treasures. thank you for sharing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@maggiemaggie: It's such a special voice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 8:59pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matthew Kaplan Superstar: Off-mic, Debsey mentioned why it's not 100% comprehensive, but I don't recall what she said. (This is pre-recorded.)
  Sun. 1/7/18 9:00pm Matthew Kaplan Superstar:

It is missing the version of Borinda's Lament from The Fireside EP
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:01pm Gaylord Fields:

Right, it has the b-side of "Remember This" version only. Not sure why.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:03pm Gaylord Fields:

This is the part of the interview when the band soundchecking downstairs from The Lexington gave us an involuntary soundtrack.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:05pm Old Dave:

Wait, what? Women can have babies???
Hilarious interview.
She was SHOCKED....

Open and honest, as only artists can be... self absorbed to the max.
Like the music and grateful that you've taught me about DM, Gaylord.

This is a wonderful interview. Thank you Gaylord! Birdie and Dolly Mixture are some of my favorite bands for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:28pm Gaylord Fields:

@Blob Dobbs: As I just said, people who like Debsey love Debsey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/7/18 9:32pm Uncle Michael:

OK, the Lena Zavaroni record *is* good.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:32pm Blob Dobbs:

It's true! I wish I could have seen Birdie. I imagine they must have played at Maxwell's at some point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Debsey and I would never lie to you.
  Sun. 1/7/18 9:32pm Lawrence:

Love this show! Thank you for letting the world know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:33pm Gaylord Fields:

@Blob Dobbs: They toured the US all of once, in 1999 or so. I was out of the country and missed them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@Lawrence: Thanks! That has been my mission since 1984.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:38pm Old Dave:

I did not know about any of this, which is why i love FMU!
The sound world is opened by one door, right here!

@Old Dave: We love being a window instead of a wall.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:48pm Old Dave:

Tory Burch? Wait, I know her and am rather ashamed to admit that...
Why name drop, it's all crazy with interviewee apparently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:48pm Gaylord Fields:

Folks, I'll be away the next four weeks (nothing serious, I can assure everyone). Next week's fill-in DJ will be Jack Mello, and Delphine Blue will be in this slot the following three weeks! I'll be back on Feb. 11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/7/18 9:49pm joe mulligan:

you'll be missed Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/7/18 9:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This is really good, Gaylord. 2018 is off to a good start. Enjoy your time off!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@joe mulligan: Thanks! It's go by fast, and besides, there will be four excellent shows in my stead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:51pm Gaylord Fields:

@Ken From Hyde Park: Fun stuff is a large component of my absence, rest assured.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:52pm Blob Dobbs:

Thanks for the Birdie songs! I've been enjoying the Delphine Blue shows, by the way
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:52pm Old Dave:

Dang! Just got to where i could enjoy your show post-hectic holiday shamshop frenzytime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:53pm Gaylord Fields:

@Blob Dobbs: We're fortunate to have Delphine back on WFMU after two decades of spreading her freeform magic elsewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:55pm Gaylord Fields:

@Old Dave: That's kind of you to say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:58pm coelacanth∅:
