We prove that a two-variable p-adic lq-function has the series expansion lp,q(s,t,χ)=([2]q/[2]F)a=1,(p,a)=1F(1)a(χ(a)qa/a+pts)m=0(sm)(F/a+pt)mEm,qF* which interpolates the values lp,q(n,t,χ)=En,χn,q(pt)pnχn(p)([2]q/[2]qp)En,χn,qp(t), whenever n is a nonpositive integer. The proof of this original construction is due to Kubota and Leopoldt in 1964, although the method given in this note is due to Washington.
