Love this Estampie 'Ben e crudele'! And I love the ways in which you play with fonts. :-)

Thanks, Teresa. It's good to hear from you again.
Krista 10:36:18 AM
Hey Dave! This is Krista from Habitat Enrichment! Lovely yo see The Gond Song on your list.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:39:06 AM
Thanks, Krista. Their music sounds like they somehow maintained a tradition distinct from the dominant culture. Not much available, though.
Bud Burroughs 10:53:28 AM
Always good to hear Univers Zero!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:54:19 AM
I'm glad to have the opportunity to present their music.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:03:44 AM
I love this station and all this diverse music. Nothing like it here in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:05:45 AM
I rigged up a wire and tied it around my antenna to get you in stereo. It is great hearing you so clear now on 103.3 FM.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:06:07 AM
Yeah, sadly not anymore... Until the mid to late 80's Southeastern PA had a diverse station.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:07:38 AM
Glad to hear to are able to extract a good signal from the air. 🎶
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:08:21 AM
103.3 is it in my radio world. I have listened since the late 80s or early 90s. It has always been a place to hear something different.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:09:30 AM
I've been fighting to get you in stereo inside for many years and for some reason it just wouldn't work for me.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:10:15 AM
Indeed. I try to listen as much as possible. So many different DJs here bring such a wealth of music.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:15:10 AM
Funny before the rooftop TV antenna fell in a storm i could get you on my stereo for years. After that happened I could never get nice clear reception. But in the last 2 years or so I figured out if I bought some stainless steel wire and clip some off and tie it around my antenna and put it up under a ceiling tile I get you in stereo again and it sounds so clear.
Bud Burroughs 11:16:36 AM
Dave, is your "mid to late 80s" comment a reference to the once-great WXPN?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:16:37 AM
Clever solution. ⚡️ Glad it's working.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:18:05 AM
Grumble... grumble... I'm still carrying a lot of pain from that format change. 😡 What a loss that was. All that's left is Stars End.
Bud Burroughs 11:18:35 AM
Indeed. Diaspar changed my life.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:19:11 AM
I found a similar station which is hard to get called WMUH in Allentown but can't get it where I live. But I sometimes listen online. It is very similar to PRB.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:19:59 AM
OMG Diaspar yes I loved that show.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:20:39 AM
Yes, the Synthesis of Diaspar! I would always have to pay attention during mic breaks and scribble notes.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:21:12 AM
I'm trying to keep some of that spirit alive on my shows.
Bud Burroughs 11:21:16 AM
Yep, I constantly made lists of things to scour the record stores for!
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:21:51 AM
WXPN is ok but not nearly as diverse as WPRB. I do love Stars End with Chuck Van Zyl
Bud Burroughs 11:21:57 AM
I still run into John DiLiberto and Gino Wong at prog-oriented shows in the area. They were my 2 favorite Diaspar hosts.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:22:37 AM
And John hosted that syndicated show, too.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:23:12 AM
Echoes is still on with John DiLiberto
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:22:56 AM
That's the one! Thanks!
Bud Burroughs 11:23:12 AM
Yep, unfortunately Echoes has become very commercialized, although he features something great now and then.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:23:20 AM
And thanks for the WMUH tip.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:24:15 AM
There is also WDVR in Seargentsville
Bud Burroughs 11:23:54 AM
Fortunately, with my carefully-place antenna, I'm also able to get a decent WPRB signal. It's on all day, every day now that I'm working from home.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:24:08 AM
Great folk music on DVR.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:25:12 AM
Yes Bud that is awesome. I had to do some work but I got it on now to.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:25:40 AM
John Weingart is amazing
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:25:36 AM
A WPRB institution. Been here longer than me.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:26:52 AM
I love his theme music to Music You Can't hear on the Radio I laugh so hard at that.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:28:14 AM
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:28:53 AM
Link to WMUH. Never hurts to show great radio some love.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:29:02 AM
Listening to WPRB all day every day while working at home. There's one good thing about the pandemic.
Bud Burroughs 11:30:13 AM
Yeah, going back to the office someday will be tough.
Vaughn Skywatcher Heintz 11:30:50 AM
Indeed I listen to WPRB the most because I can get it on radio and don't have to hook in my phone to play it.
