Hi Irwin and everyone else who joins
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Doobois:

Good midafternoon! I wonder "expoobident" is a real word. I mean, it is, of course, but you know what I mean. Because that would be, well, expoobident,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Doobois:

Egads, so many typos, so much shame.
  3:06pm Laura L:

Thanks for posting the photo, Irwin!

Bonjour, les amis!

This seems really N-like, where N is that band whose name I can't remember ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Itzall Ablurr:

Hi Irwin and everyone, hope you're doing well.
Avatar 3:13pm βrian:

Zero 7, that's who I'm thinking of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Irwin:

Thanks for reminding me who took the pic, Laura!

very WYPIWYG day indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Michael 98145:

what spodiodi just said
Avatar 3:18pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

I never realized subways had "control towers."
  3:19pm Laura L:

Stick a photo credit on there when you have a sec, for the ever elusive posterity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Irwin:

Will do LL.
Avatar 3:24pm JakeGould:

@WildNeil: Towers used to control the majority of the system. But now it’s all centralized. There are still visible tower structures above ground on elevated lines that are basically just MTA facilities nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm AnAnonymousParty:

Is she clapping her hands or slapping her ass?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Lunchbox3030:

hey everyone, hope you are having a good day
  3:29pm Marc15:

Too bad Michael Ferucci is straight. He sounds great!
Avatar 3:29pm glenn:

there's a bar in my hood called 3030.
  3:29pm spodiodi:

if only he played piano
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Michael 98145:

"leave it to WFMU" a great billboard motto
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Mark Hurst:

I fully support our new mascot leader.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Lunchbox3030:

@glenn neat! Is it on a 3030 street or something?
I, for one, welcome our new amphibian overlords.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Lunchbox3030:

@glenn looks real fancy, cant go wrong with craft beers. my 3030 came from the deltron3030 album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm mrdonutsu:

Ah the old Casio SK1
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Irwin:

Glad to help, rsj. Stay calm, stay loose, duck and cover.
Avatar 3:50pm βrian:

Ach, now I have to go home and tell Fino that he lost out to an amphibian.
  3:54pm brick layer:

man, this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Phillippe Bastille:

Beautiful song, Jacquline
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The good part about having a frog for a mascot is that there's no fur to vacuum up after a visit to the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Phillippe Bastille:

Love the pic, Laura L
Avatar 4:02pm βrian:

Fino is most generous with his fur. I think he considers it his contribution toward the rent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm SSS:

@ Ken - Yes, and perhaps he can clear out the flies....
  4:04pm Laura L:

Thanks, Irwin. And thanks, Phillippe--glad you like the photo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@SSS - Yes, and small birds, by the looks of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Would that every bar in the universe had somebody there playing like this...I'd probly be full-blown alkyholic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I can dream...

Avatar 4:32pm Listening Out There:

Joni with Jaco...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...It ain't BobDylan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Doug in JC:

Jeepers, who's playing bass on this joni mitchell track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Doug in JC:

Nevermind, I looked it up en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Zappaphiles & Zappaphobes - two lines - no shoving...

Joe Goldmark will tackle anything with his pedal steel!

Avatar 4:59pm βrian:

Ach, darkness falls in only 40 minutes. Ugh.
  5:00pm Laura L:

I hope Otis was listening to that remix. Right up his alley.

My cats didn't take it well after their second straight rejection.
Avatar 5:04pm Roberto:

But what a frog!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Michael 98145:

it's always holiday dinner to a pet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm People Like Us:

I just didn't tell our cat when he didn't win
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Phillippe Bastille:

I didn't enter my pet. Dealing with enough Jack Russell/Chihuahua insecurity drama already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Michael 98145:

where the hell else would you ever hear something like that Mingus?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Daddy Hernlet:

I don't listen every week but I love the show when I can tune in!
Avatar 5:20pm geezerette:

Nowhere! That's where!

Wow, same singing teacher as Mrs. Miller.
  5:44pm miketp:

  5:48pm Laura L:

Yay, Richard Hell--but you know, he got a recording contract but Ann Lever didn't; that just ain't right.
  5:49pm brainiac:

What sort of black magic has deleted the Good Rats from the playlist? Is this how they rig our voting machines?
  5:53pm brainiac:

Avatar 5:55pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Linda Lee:

no, brainiac. the rigging is simpler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Michael 98145:
