Justin Bowling 10:10:22 PM
Yo! I wanna throw in a request early. Could you play “Raging Hearts” by Inexorum?
A KFAI DJ 10:15:34 PM
Justin, I brought Moonlit Navigation LP tonight. Something from that one?
Justin Bowling 10:15:53 PM
Hot damn Brucey’s still got it! I dig how “classic” this sounds.
Justin Bowling 10:16:56 PM
Oh nice! Yes! The title track is fantastic, but I dig them all. If you had one planned already just roll with that 🤘
Chris Bick 10:18:15 PM
I'd like to throw in a request ... go old school with some "On They Slay" by Atheist?
Decker 10:18:56 PM
Bit out of character for the show, but Jeff LeBar from Cinderella passed yesterday. Cinderella is one of my fave bands, def top tier hair metal. Maybe something from them?
A KFAI DJ 10:19:39 PM
You'll have to pick a song for me, Josh.
Decker 10:21:05 PM
"Nothin' For Nothin'" if ya got it, if not, no sweat
Justin Bowling 10:21:34 PM
I mean, Cinderella actually hit pretty hard for Hair Metal
Decker 10:21:44 PM
Nice requests Justin and Chris! \m/
Decker 10:23:30 PM
Cinderella were def their own thing. I didn't pick one, but a lot of their stuff is way more bluesy than anything else at the time, I love/d that. And yeah, a lot of their stuff hits diff, def more serious than a lot of hair metal
Decker 10:25:25 PM
ATHIEST \m\ ( >.< ) \m/
Chris Bick 10:25:28 PM
I still listen to Cinderella, especially when they incorporated the blues stuff in.
Justin Bowling 10:25:51 PM
For sure. I was surprised when I listened to them. I dig it quite a bit. Hair metal has some pretty good stuff, there’s just also a lot of junk. But Cinderella was a good one.
Chris Bick 10:26:07 PM
Atheist is one of those bands I throw in once in awhile and I always think, "Why don't I listen to this more often?"
Decker 10:26:34 PM
Heh, big same here Chris!
Justin Bowling 10:26:40 PM
Chris same here. I’ve never listened to them much but always dig it when I hear it.
Decker 10:27:23 PM
If you ever come hang at my place Justin (or anyone) you'll get at least a couple tracks from Cinderella on cassette as a soundtrack lol
Justin Bowling 10:28:00 PM
Hell yeah Decker! 🤘
Chris Bick 10:29:26 PM
lol, I'm always throwing cassettes in while I'm grilling. Anyone who comes over gives me the same "Is that a cassette?" look.
Justin Bowling 10:30:20 PM
I’m smitten that there’s at least 3 of us here that listen to cassettes. I buy vinyl first, then cassette, then CD’s. I love cassettes.
Decker 10:31:16 PM
hahaha, buncha tape nerds, I love it. It's essentially the only physical media I listen to. I collect almost nothing else, that's for sure.
Justin Bowling 10:34:01 PM
There’s still just so cheap and actually sound great on the right system.
Chris Bick 10:36:25 PM
I don't buy too many anymore (I have the new Blu Eox and some Maul releases), but the old ones still work.
Decker 10:38:47 PM
/me promises I won't turn this into a discussion about my tape collection
Justin Bowling 10:39:01 PM
Decker 10:39:44 PM
Justin Bowling 10:39:52 PM
Yeeeahhh here we go!
Decker 10:41:41 PM
I genuinely love hair metal etc so much ugh
Justin Bowling 10:42:15 PM
I got really burnt out on it in the 2000’s, but I’m rediscovering it and really enjoying it.
Justin Bowling 10:44:42 PM
Gonna throw in a second request (if anyone else requests play there’s before mine). “Mountains” by I
Decker 10:45:51 PM
Somehow reminded of Cwn Anwwn or whatevertheheck, any news on them?
Justin Bowling 10:47:51 PM
I don’t think I know that one
Decker 10:49:06 PM
Decker 10:50:03 PM
Took me a while to get into these guys, and they're still not really my style, but I dig em
Justin Bowling 10:52:13 PM
Yeah this is cool. I’d have to be in the mood to put it on but it’s really cool stuff. Great musicianship
Decker 10:57:02 PM
How is this album 30 years old?
A KFAI DJ 11:03:21 PM
It still sounds great for it's age.
Decker 11:04:25 PM
A KFAI DJ 11:05:31 PM
Prolly because it WASN'T recorded at Morrisound!
Decker 11:13:48 PM
Said it before, I'll say it again - this is a cool segment
Matthew Gurrola 11:15:52 PM
Yeah it really is.
Justin Bowling 11:16:08 PM
Justin Bowling 11:19:56 PM
Hell yeah! Thank you!
Decker 11:20:11 PM
Justin Bowling 11:20:51 PM
The volume is really quiet on my end. Is that my system?
A KFAI DJ 11:21:32 PM

Justin Bowling 11:21:36 PM

A KFAI DJ 11:21:55 PM

Justin Bowling 11:21:59 PM
Justin Bowling 11:22:16 PM
It’s all good, turned it up a bit on my end and it sounds great
Bill Hansen 11:22:21 PM
Please make a donation so we can fix it!
Matthew Gurrola 11:22:36 PM
Only getting sound out of one side of my headphones. Thought it was me.
Decker 11:23:12 PM
Yeah, right side only here
Matthew Gurrola 11:23:21 PM
Noticed it has happened on a few other shows recently.
Bill Hansen 11:23:30 PM
Yeah something is screwy with the turntable
Justin Bowling 11:23:45 PM
It’s all good.
Decker 11:31:52 PM
/me ears perk up
Bill Hansen 11:33:50 PM
Bill Hansen 11:40:16 PM
