Mike Lupica (host) 8:55:15 PM
Unless my memory is shot. Someone get Commie Francis on the horn?
Jetty On The Rocks 8:56:49 PM
my major association with blatz is that only in philly could blatz be played at a "dance music" night
Mike Lupica (host) 8:59:21 PM
Seems fair.
jimbeaux 9:02:17 PM
philly do dance different
Jetty On The Rocks 9:03:07 PM

Teresa Peacock 9:22:08 PM
Buona notte, Jetty cara!
Teresa Peacock 9:25:28 PM
A propos of our most Philly conversation -- I miss how Wilbo used to pronounce Philly as "Phiwwy" by making the Ls Ws while still sort of pronouncing them as Ls... I miss Wilbo and The Clothesline
Mike Lupica (host) 9:27:15 PM
Wilbo is my life coach. Miss the guy like crazy. Hope he can make his way back to PRB someday!
Teresa Peacock 9:29:02 PM
I hope so too! You had some epic banter in the transition time between your shows. "Das Dominoes" for example...
Mike Lupica (host) 9:31:15 PM
Wow, I don't even remember that!
Sylvia Korman 9:33:43 PM
I've been buying copies of Plantasia for all my friends since they reissued it....perfect album
Teresa Peacock 9:35:32 PM
So back when that D&D-inspired one-hit-wonders compilation "Darkscorch" came out on Numero, you and Wilbo were talking about stuff and you asked him, "What was that board-game songs comp again?" And without missing a beat, Wilbo came up with "You mean, 'Das Damenoes'?"
Mike Lupica (host) 9:35:42 PM
@Sylvia, you are a good friend!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:36:12 PM
@Teresa, oh jeez, yes, now I remember. His wit knows no equal.
Teresa Peacock 9:36:32 PM
I laugh about it to this day!
richard mccullic 9:56:16 PM
Merry Christmas Enjoyed Your Show
Mike Lupica (host) 10:00:23 PM
Thanks Richard!
Bo 10:05:39 PM
@DJ Mike, got any Phenomenauts in the box tonight speaking of things spacey?
Mike Lupica (host) 10:07:14 PM
Don't know them, Bo, but I can probably find more spacey sounds for the last hour!
Bo 10:08:52 PM
OMG! That cannot be true, I mentioned a band that you aren't aware of?!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:12:00 PM
Darn it, I missed 🖤DAVID★BOWIE🖤?!?
Mike Lupica (host) 10:12:16 PM
Hahaha @Bo, I don't even know who Pavement are!
Bo 10:13:12 PM
David Bowie is pissed Mr M!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:16:28 PM
True Story: David Bowie once winked at me.
jimbeaux 10:17:13 PM
the blue or brown eye?
Mike Lupica (host) 10:17:45 PM
Ahh, that I do not know! In my memory, it was his left eye but this was a long time ago.
jimbeaux 10:19:10 PM
each wink had a secret message depending on the eye color

Mike Lupica (host) 10:23:52 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 10:24:10 PM
Can't believe I fell for a browneye joke.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:24:31 PM
Also can't believe I just typed that on the internet.
jimbeaux 10:24:54 PM
My work is done here.
Bo 10:24:30 PM
jimbeaux 10:26:48 PM
Get your sphincters straight, gutter folk: "The fight resulted in Bowie suffering a Heterochromia, a condition which resulted in the right eye turning blue in appearance while a left one remained a darker shade of brown, apparently due to suffering “a deep corneal abrasion and paralysis of his iris sphincter muscle."
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:27:18 PM
Y’all nasty
Bo 10:29:19 PM
Welder's eye is how I read it in NME many years ago.

A non- Christmas song that always feels like a Christmas song to me is Roy Orbison “Life Fades Away”!
Bo 10:37:52 PM
I second that Mr M. That is such a sweet story DJ Mike.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:39:33 PM
