Okay. ...3 Upper Case f-bombs is maybe a little dramatic. Wishing you good Sat. Evening, FMU friend!

A good evening to Rob, really enjoying the show, the tickets are 3000+ miles out of town so GL to the locals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/20/13 7:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Show is always wonderful!
Q!: Can anybody tell me how faithful to Bowie's original lyrics Seu Jorge's Portugese lyrics are? I just wonder.
Avatar Sat. 7/20/13 7:11pm Rob Weisberg:

Afraid I can't answer the Seu Jorge / Bowie question...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/20/13 7:12pm Cory:

Killer set tonight, Rob! Really digging it.
Avatar Sat. 7/20/13 7:14pm Rob Weisberg:

Thanks Cory!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/20/13 7:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx Rob! It sounds to me like he takes some liberties, but can't tell for sure. They are very kewl anyhow; if anyone hasn't heard them they're on the 'Life Aquatic' soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/20/13 7:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...kinda wish I could Rate tracks - supplemental to just ☆ing or not: I find 'Nazoki' esp. beguiling! (Always a sucker for these 'mysterious' African guitar stylings, for one thing...)
  Sat. 7/20/13 7:42pm anna:

hey there was a tune on the show....maybe a commercial, but i cannot find it anywhere....
it's some guys saying: do you like it? a girl: delicious. him:i knew you would like it. her: delicious. and it goes on and on....them laughing.....would be great if somebody could help....was on today around 6/7 pm euro time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/20/13 7:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...looks like if you want all the Seu Jorge 'Bossa-Bowie' - it's the 'Sessions' album :
- lovin' 'Heela Heela' w/the hammered dulcimer (yes?) & well - the whole set!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/20/13 8:06pm Cory:

anna, if you're still here check out the playlists from today. You'll be able to listen to some of them via MP3 or the pop-up player. I wish I could help but around that time I was listening to the buzzers on my steamers and fryers going off. Good luck!
Avatar Sat. 7/20/13 8:28pm SeanG:

Hey Anna, that's probably Rex's show, Fool's Paradise, he plays saucy commercials like that. If not that, then Michael Shelley's show.
Avatar Sat. 7/20/13 8:30pm Rob Weisberg:

Yep, seems like it's gotta be Rex or Michael Shelley. Alternatively you could email them via this page:
