Hi, Mon Amie! Glad I can hear your show this time when I'm a little less drowsy (though having my mind slowly drift away to your mix was rather pleasurable).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Mon Amie:

Hi new friends...thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm lukavino:

hey, sunday sundowners.

Hey Mon Amie, Crew, everyone! And hello chresti, sorry I missed your greeting last show, been bouncing around :)

Hello, Mon Amie! Happy to have the chance to hear you, I was sleeping through your previous fill-ins (no fault of yours, to be clear).
Avatar 6:16pm HexFamChan:

Such great sounds Mon Amie! Glad to be here with y'all!

British Teeth Award - Martin Gore!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Mon Ami, I can't wait to hear more of your set, if only to have the set list push up that horrifying Martin Gore gif out of my line of sight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Gaylord Fields:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm chresti:

Horrifying yet wholesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Gaylord Fields:

(French is not my strong suit, as anyone who has heard my back announcing can attest.)
Avatar 6:37pm northguineahills:

damn, took a shower and missed my favorite Cranes song!
Avatar 6:42pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@Gaylord your French is fine, the e is silent in amie. Speaking more than one language is hard!
  6:45pm natbot:

So stoked when you do fill-ins!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm lukavino:

i saw a very cute video this morning of hanging bats filmed upside down set to goth industrial and this is just A Whole Continuous Vibe.
Avatar 6:46pm northguineahills:

@Sylvia: Try texting in multiple languages (spell carrot musses up it every time). And I can't even English (my first language)!
  6:46pm ?:

This is the BEST
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@Sylvia: That is so kind and charitable of you. But I used the masculine form when her proper appellation is RIGHT THERE — no excuse.
Avatar 6:50pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@northguineahills French is my 1st, English 2nd but the one I use the most now, sometimes I don't even know which one I'm speaking as I'm uttering words. Ha, brain!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Mon Amie. This sounds Mon Amiezing!
Avatar 6:52pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@Gaylord yeah :) (had you been French I would have insisted on the importance on the gender marker, obv, but that's not your 1st language)
Avatar 6:52pm northguineahills:

@Sylvia: when my brain goes to 'foreign language mode", (usually espanol), I sometime accidentally utter Duetsch, Francais, or Nippon-go.

Avatar 6:53pm northguineahills:

(actually, the other day, I was taling to the hotel staff, and I totally splanglished my request to the help staff, didn't know what language I was speaking).

Avatar 6:54pm northguineahills:

the back cover to Magic Fly is a thing of beauty....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Gaylord Fields:

@northguineahills: I know what you mean. I've recently become quite fluent in Spantuguese myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm john_NN_nn_n:

loving the show
Avatar 6:56pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@northguineahills haha :D I should have been better at speaking Spanish, but I suck. I can order drinks and food though, so there's that.
  6:57pm AndyAndy:

Sounds great!!
Avatar 6:58pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

dance shoes on!
Avatar 6:58pm northguineahills:

@Gaylord: I've been watching a Brazilian series on Netflix latley. It's ok. But since there are many Brazilian immigrants here in central FL, I need to up my Lusophonic game. I can almost get through it w/o subtitles due to my Spanish...
  7:01pm Andres:

Salut Mon Amie! Votre programme nous a donner beacoup de plaisir ce soir! Merci!
Avatar 7:01pm northguineahills:

@Sylvia, my wife is Mexican, and the only Spanish at the time I knew was from watching futbol en espanol (in the 90s and 2000s, football was hard to find on American TV). Problem is, she spoke perfect English, so, I only got to practice my spanish there, but her friends wanted to practice their English w/ me. It's not automatic, but at least my brain can translate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Gaylord Fields:

My teen-acqured Spanish used to be pretty tight intil I took a Portuguese course a decade ago. Now my Spanish sounds like an American pretending to be a Carioca who spent a few years in San Juan.
Avatar 7:02pm northguineahills:

@Gaylord: ok, beer coming out my nose!, jejeje!!!!
Avatar 7:03pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@Gaylord :D

New on the job! I don't believe it. This is pure gold!

Sounds great. No complaints... besides, have you heard 7 Second Delay? You’ve got nothing to worry about! LOL

RIP Frankie Knuckles (saw him live a few times),
  7:17pm !:

Can we have this show every week?
Avatar 7:17pm northguineahills:

...and I can't believe I never heard the Animal Collective collab track before...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm adampsyche:

hi welcome new show!
Avatar 7:21pm PapaJoeMambo:

Hey folks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm adampsyche:

I've been on mobile data only for six months and get internet on Tuesday but a chum texted me to tune in and burn that mobile data and I'm glad that I did
  7:21pm Andres:

Seriously, this show is killing me in the best way possible!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm sugarwolf!!!:

If I tried to speak Spanish, I think it would come out half French.
Avatar 7:27pm northguineahills:

My French is Quebecois, from my trips to Montreal. I later found out many younger people use and English grammar structure when speaking Quebecois, so, I could never speak French in Paris...
  7:27pm Kelly Jones:

I be sittin’ in a giant field watching the sunset while my horse grazes and I’m listening to this splendid show. Thanks Mon Amie!

Compliments on great show, Mon Amie! Wonderful style and selection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Great job, Mon Amie! Gotta go off and prep for my show, but this has been a stellar set! Thanks!!
Avatar 7:35pm northguineahills:

been awhile since I've heard Herb Alpert unadulterated on WFMU... (probably was Gaylord the last time)
Avatar 7:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Rather than Comment about What's Going On? ...shouldn't I be offering tribute on some physical altar??

@Rev Rabbit: Unfortunately, I haven't practiced any Francais, so I can only read it, or catch parts of conversation. (I do have a Hugenot ancester that came to VA in the early 18th c, after escaping to Amsterdam).

I knew this would be the next sugue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Mon Amie:

Hhaha, so predictable...I'll venmo you $20 if you guess the next segue
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Mon Amie:
