Just had kitten beach xmas so I've had most of a bottle of prosecco and I'm here for the good times
Avatar 7:16pm Faye:

HEAT!!! so good to have you here in person
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Oh, crud. The picture says "expert alterations." Not "alliterations." Hoo boy. Good songs so far.
  7:19pm HEAT:

Faye!!!! I'm glad to be here too in real time real life

Do I detect a cubist touch to the artwork? My perception keeps changing as i am mesmerized.

Hey all, great music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Gaylord Fields:

@Faye: Hooray for Postcard bands! @Cooh John: Much obliged for my one-third responsibility for the transition. @Chris Echo: Hello from the civilian side of radio. @Cheyenne: I already showed my appreciation to you during my show, but overkilling with kindness is sort of my style.

Hey @Gaylord.

@Chris: Her show is easy to love.

  7:37pm Ted:

Woah! Awesome show!
Avatar 7:37pm bobdoesthings:

good tip: don't ever listen to orange juice right after brushing your teeth.
  7:37pm ugh:

when will dj's realize their singing, always, is incredibly annoying.
Avatar 7:38pm Chris Echo:

Hello Children www.facebook.com...
  7:39pm HEAT:

I basically love it when the DJs sing
  7:39pm ugh:

basically? what?
  7:40pm HEAT:

Basically = at the basic level
Avatar 7:40pm bobdoesthings:

I thought the dj singing was a delightful endearingly humanizing experience. 10/10. would hear again. ugh!
Avatar 7:41pm listener mark:

I like to sing.
I like to drink.
People like to listen to me drink.
  7:42pm Eric Hat:

Hello Faye. Happy Solstice
  7:42pm HEAT:

Listener mark yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe DJs at for-profit commercial stations have stipulations in their professional contracts that prohibit singing. Free form volunteer DJs can choose to sing or not as their whims take them, which is cool with me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Irene Trudel:

I love to sing! Singing is really a wonderful release, and can be playful too. Nothing wrong with it in moderation.
Avatar 7:45pm Faye:

WOW if Irene Trudel says it it must be true!!
  7:47pm KP:

Hello, Faye
Avatar 7:47pm Faye:

THanks for listening Irene!!! & Eric! & Paul! & mark! & bob! & Ken! & everyone!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Gaylord Fields:

It's a thankless job being a radio vigilante. So count me among those not thanking.
  7:49pm KP:

And Heat
  7:49pm HEAT:

sounds like "ugh" needs to go back to clear channel and get the led out
  7:49pm ugh:

I recant.

Ditto to Irene Trudel!

ahh thanks so much Irene!!

What Kate and Irene said.
Avatar 7:56pm luca:

who still sings, while walking down the street? have witnessed it a couple of times in asia...very, very moving
Avatar 7:57pm listener mark:

Salad Boys = good riffs
Avatar 8:03pm Faye:

some people in NYC are fond of singing on the street AND in the subway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm redkayak:

Evening all :)
Avatar 8:07pm luca:

even while actually walking faye? in pairs? just because they felt happy?
Avatar 8:08pm listener mark:

Gene Kelly liked to sing in the rain.
Avatar 8:10pm Paul D:

This band is really good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Gaylord Fields:

This band is a dream I thought I'd never hear while awake.
Avatar 8:12pm Faye:

ah wow!! aren't they dreamy?!?! <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My singing, on a good day, would probably not qualify for a place on Dan Bodah's Vocal Fry program. Mercury Girls sound really fits the Hello Children vibe, I think. mercurygirls.bandcamp.com
  8:13pm Cooh John:

I'll probably break into singing some Mercury Girls tomorrow at work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@Faye: They make me feel like I'm your age again (which I was around the time of C86)!
Avatar 8:17pm Faye:

ugh this song is SO GOOD!
  8:18pm Tommy:

WOW Thank you Fay , thank you Mercury Girls .This is just beautiful
  8:19pm HEAT:

Shit yeah Mercury Girls!!!!!
  8:19pm P-90:

Mercury Girls are a revelation. Hiya Faye!
  8:22pm Eric Hat:

Awesome set!
  8:23pm Ice in Brooklyn:

Good set!
Beverly, the band is pretty cool too!
  8:24pm Dan in Portland OR:

that was amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Bandcamp link mentions that Mercury Girls have a live gig in Philadelphia on New Year's Eve.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Gaylord Fields:

  8:26pm KP:

"Expert Alterations" is quite fitting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gaylord Fields:

But...but...I had already given my heart to Mercury Girls.
Avatar 8:28pm Faye:

hahahahha I know right?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Gaylord Fields:

Yep, then I guess it'll have to be Big Love.

Josephine Foster's voice just flows like water. I mean that as a compliment.
Avatar 9:31pm Faye:

like water & air
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm coelacanth:

hey Faye and others.
- i was (am) listening via fm so i cannot back-up to find out...did you say you played "before the snowfall" by a different artist? nothing's showing in the archive search besides other plays of the version you played today.
Avatar 9:42pm Peteski:

  9:50pm Kate:

thanks for a beautiful show faye! was happy to finally catch it live!
Avatar 9:50pm listener mark:

Thank you Faye. Enjoyed the live sets, The winter solstice is Monday night! For those practicing the old religions the big party is at Stonehenge.
Avatar 9:53pm David Shortell:

"The Microphones"? I remember that guy. I saw him open for the Softies at the Woman's Club of Manasquan about 15 years ago.
