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

Jetty On The Rocks 9:03:07 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!

Bo 10:08:52 PM

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

Bo 10:24:30 PM
LMFIAO!
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
