I started listening to FXO in 1980, about tied with Pat Duncan for first WFMU show I listened to.

I'm late to the WFMU family so I've only had the honor of listening to a few of FXO's shows (including his last show which was not too long ago). What little I've heard makes me feel like I've missed out on a lot. I wish I could freeze time and go back to all of the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm
Gaylord Fields:

@jkeigh: That's such a thoughtful sentiment to share with us. Thank you.

This set gets late FXO to a T. (90s to 00s, which is when I listened most often) Learned a lot from that curmudgeonly polymath.

I've been listening to WFMU since 2000 or so and that really seems like a long time. FXO was definitely an important part of my experience.

I just turned on to Miles, and it's about perfect. thank you

My condolences

@Susan C.: I was debating which of FXO's opening themes to play, and I came very close to airing that one. I'm happy that you recalled it here for us.
