Hello =)
  12:06pm Listener142985:

That Negra Blanca was really nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Passaic River Blues:

Both songs dope, right off the bat.
Avatar 12:09pm Claw!:

My word, this is a great cut.

Hey Liz! What's happenin', Folks?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Liz Berg:

Hi folks, thanks for joining me today! Hope you don't mind a bit of Italo disco to ramp up your Tuesday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey liz and everyone! i NEVER mind italo disco
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm efd:

I for one welcome our Italo-Disco overlords.
Avatar 12:13pm Claw!:

Italo-Disco should be mandatory, honestly
Avatar 12:14pm Claw!:

but as a huge disco slut myself, I am biased
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Liz Berg:

A wise man once said, "There are 2 kinds of music: music with real drums and music with fake drums." I like BOTH kinds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Not to worry. Liz would never spin any bad Italo disco. Well, not on purpose.
Avatar 12:20pm Claw!:

Yo, Cken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Claw! I must remember to pack disco pants on Tuesdays for Liz' show.
  12:24pm mark:

So good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Liz Berg:

What makes a good pair of disco pants? Polyester? Shiny? Patterned? Stretchy?
Avatar 12:25pm Claw!:

Avatar 12:26pm Claw!:

lots of silver sequins. definitely spandex. maybe some tassels.
  12:27pm Listener142985:

Pants at a disco?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Passaic River Blues:

Day-glo codpiece, regardless of gender.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm frozen_peas:

high waist, bell bottoms
  12:30pm Mott:

This set is complete garbage.
Avatar 12:30pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

@Passaic River Blues: I honestly saw a man wearing a day-glo codpiece this weekend at the beach. It was hot pink and he also had on a light pink, open oxford shirt and nothings else. Amazingly he pulled it off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm blee:

anything but a man romper, please
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm blee:

codpiece, such an amazing article of clothing.
Avatar 12:33pm steve:

hey people
Avatar 12:34pm steve:

i missed the Flying song but i wanted to say the cover of that one gives me joy... address all dance clothing questions to that record cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm blee:

wear this:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Liz Berg:

Nice one, blee! Here's that Flying album cover Steve mentioned:
Avatar 12:40pm Claw!:

so a child just called here at the record store. they were debating with a friend about whether or not Tupac was really still alive, and they wanted us to clear it up for them once and for all. That phone call helped to reaffirm my faith in the future of America.
Avatar 12:42pm Claw!:

I had my coworker pick up the other phone and join the conversation, and after a brief exchange of ideas, we both told the child that Pac is alive and well, chillin in Cuba.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm blee:

Pac en Cuba!
I Love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Passaic River Blues:

@Jennique: I love that that happened! I'd like to think that man is a neighborhood character wherever he lives. He saunters up the avenue codpiece a-wagging, and passersby elbowing each other, going, "Oh shit! Look, there goes Rad Tom."
@Claw!: hahahahahahahahaha
Avatar 12:43pm steve:

thats great Claw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Liz Berg:

Perfect, Claw!
Avatar 12:45pm Claw!:

it's a tough job, but we do this for the children
Avatar 12:45pm Mister Dobalina:

For a second I thought I heard Pet Shop Boys, but no. Instantly sad.
Avatar 12:47pm steve:

Claw - i work with teenagers and would like to second that kids have reaffirmed my faith in America.
Avatar 12:49pm Claw!:

@Steve - yeah, they're really not so bad. I think we're gonna be ok.
Avatar 12:52pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

@Passaic Rive Blues: Rad Tom was with, I assume, his wife who was also rad and wearing an African looking head wrap and mismatching bright printed top and long skirt. She was pushing a baby stroller, so Rad Tom and wife are thankfully passing on their fashion genes.
Avatar 12:54pm Monplaisir:

Perfect musics to cook stuff. Got my disco slippers, everything is under control.
  12:54pm upstate chris:

I found a good use for the WFMU mono at work with one headphone plugged into the ear sounds great *pats ken and the team on back*
  12:56pm Polyus:

That's how I do it as well.
  12:59pm upstate chris:

yup this new fandangled technology these days not too shabby
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm adampsyche:

fun set liz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Michael 98145:

we can now assume Roger Moore is gone - www.washingtonpost.com...
Avatar 1:10pm Claw!:

unless he is in Cuba
  1:10pm Marc15:

If TuPac were alive, he's on that South Pacific Island with JFK, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee, and Hitler
Avatar 1:14pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

along with the Professor and Mary Anne.
  1:17pm Robin Eisgrau:

Liz, infinite thanx for playing Look Blue, Go Purple, one of my all time favorite bands!
Avatar 1:18pm Monplaisir:

Sounds like Cindy Lee
  1:19pm mr_mikeK:

I love it here. On tues at 12
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Michael 98145:

this is indeed a good place to be
  1:37pm upstate chris:

yes indeed my fav place to be in all of FMU land
  1:39pm Bobby:

This set is kicking ass. I am with you.
  1:39pm Polyus:

"You are all puddings, and I am your queen"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Passaic River Blues:

Alas, I am but a mere baronet of expired pudding cups.
  1:49pm Tee Ess:

"Big White Cloud" was a John Cale cover, no? That was most excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Liz Berg:

You are correct, Tee Ess!
Avatar 1:57pm steve:

i believe 2.13.61 is Henry Rollins label?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm blee:

New White Hills album is very good and different too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Liz Berg:

Steve, you must be right, there's a Henry Rollins quote on the back of the 7"!
  2:16pm KP:

Yay, I DL'd new copy of FMU app and all my
problems have been solved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Liz Berg:

Sometimes a do-over is all ya need! Glad it worked, KP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Lime & limpid green
a second scene
the fights between the blue you once knew
Avatar 2:21pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

I think 2.13.61 is Henry Rollins' birthday. Makes sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yes. ♒Aquarian independent.
Avatar 2:37pm steve:

the premise of this song is highly irrational
Avatar 2:51pm Dr. Goot:

Great show, killer FMA set. Thanks Liz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm blee:

I agree with the Dr. FMA set is smooooooth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...he told the lady it was not Durutti Column - to mansplain Monplaisir...
Avatar 2:58pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Great show Liz! Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"How do you put that back together?"
"Well, disco here and disco there."
Have a good week, Liz. Will see if there's a video stream of the Skeptech event where we can see you.
  5:38pm Pete:

Love the show! FYI "Pamela" is a cover of a Homosexuals song...cannot locate from where...Homosexuals songs are so great and love that they're being covered!!
