Tom Tom Club - Words and Music - 2012

Kick off your New Year's Eve with a Guest DJ set (and a lot of great stories) from Tom Tom Club, Monday night at 9pm on Words & Music.

Tom Tom Club return with some new songs, some new rhythms and some great stories in this exclusive, wide ranging interview and Guest DJ session at WFUV. Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth sat down with us on The Whole Wide World to premiere songs from the new EP, Downtown Rockers. The title track set the tone for their inspired guest DJ set as all the artists are name-checked in the song. The DJ set unfolds interspersed with conversation with Chris and Tina, and the song list below.
