You and the Little Mermaid can go…

Written by


Bwog was particularly delighted by today’s re-run of “This American Life” on NPR. A feature on personal recordings, it showcases the famous “Little Mermaid” 
ROLM message which swept Columbia in the early 1990s (documented in the Blue and White’s own “The Decline and Fall of ROLM”)  – a message which featured a mother suggesting her son and the Little Mermaid do certain unspeakable things. For those of you who haven’t heard or even heard of the call, the audio of “This American Life” can be found here.

 

We’re not waiting up all night.  Goodbye.
