I'm scared by how I don't have a little pumpkin!

Thank ya for these proper late-night sounds โ€˜n vibes
Avatar 3:30am ! I X SpooKey !:

Everybody should pledge & have a little pumpkin!
  3:30am Mike W.:

I have this Slits on a promo 7? With an interview on other side? Iโ€™m asking but also telling
  3:36am Mike W.:

But but but

It was also (or originally) on a CBS/Columbia white label radio promo thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37am Brian D:

About half the show will be 7"s. Maybe more than half.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am Brian D:

Amazingly, the Slits 7" of which you speak @Mike W. is not in the FMU record library. I say amazingly, because almost everything else is.
  3:41am Mike W.:

You know we canโ€™t see what youโ€™re doing bc itโ€™s radio
โ€œSure that was off a 7 inch my dear listenersโ€ etc
  3:42am Mike W.:

Do we get to hear Mudhoney curse bc itโ€™s 3:40am

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:13am fred:

@Brian: I wonder whether the "single" name includes digital one-offs. Otherwise it would skew older (I think it does, to an extent), as there are not many 7" releases these days
Avatar 4:32am Toutevoix:

  4:37am Mike W.:

Ooh does the station have the blue vinyl of this 7?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Brian D:

It's not the one I'm playing, @Mike W.
  4:38am Mike W.:

Should I stop asking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Brian D:

Never, Mike W. Always happy to answer, when I can.

Good Morning. Waking & sleeping & popping in & out @ turns - but appreciating.

Greetings Jinja, Rev.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:38am fred:

I remember that sinking feeling that day when his show was replaced by an archive. I think Mary Wing was on the air before. I knew something was very wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38am Brian D:

Indeed. Gone far too soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

William Berger presented an intense Genre that no one any else did (or does) - a strong medicine available nowhere else - & yet was notably accessible & welcoming in it. He was opinionated - but completely approachable - even conversational & friendly about it - despite having a dedicated curators's & a specialist's command. I shared thots about the meanings of the Horror genre with him - not too many times, but he was engaged & intelligent in it. It's no mere coincidence he was widely beloved & will not be forgotten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Brian D:

Well said, Rev. I never met him, but always learned a lot from his show.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:57am fred:

I do remember a B-side from a U2 single, something like "Alex goes into hell for a bottle of milk". Probably didn't age well, but I loved it then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Scott67:

Thanks Brian! Take it easy all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00am Brian D:

Thank you all. Stay safe and have a great Sunday.
