Good evening and welcome in to the chat!
Mark 5:08:46 PM
Ha lizbot expressed the same conundrum in advance on her live chat last Thursday
Jon Solomon (host) 5:10:50 PM
I've been doing shows since Reagan was president and this was one of the weirdest ones to assemble!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:18 PM
In 2016 I made a sound collage because by Wednesday night we knew. Oh, we knew.
Bud Burroughs 5:13:05 PM
Yeah, it must have been strange this year putting together a show in the murky past.
Mark 5:13:01 PM
Chalk it alll up to 2020 weirdness - i do like the approach : maximum music 🎵 minimal talk !
Mark 5:15:28 PM
As will considine used to close his program (paraphrase) : healing force of music the universal language of mankind !
Jon Solomon (host) 5:16:18 PM
Haven't heard that in a while. Well played.
Mark 5:21:00 PM
This is rather beautiful, looking forward to rest of program :)
Jon Solomon (host) 5:22:10 PM
Thank you, I think it will mostly be pretty calming!
Eva Hanna 5:25:00 PM
it has a nice marching forward momentum, which feels right
Jon Solomon (host) 5:26:03 PM
Thanks, EH. How are you holding up? Two big ballot count announcements in Arizona tonight!
Eva Hanna 5:27:42 PM
Was hoping for an early night, alas I will stay awake until 2 am GMT to hear the final call on Maricopa County, AZ
Jon Solomon (host) 5:30:05 PM
I went dark around midnight, listened to some podcasts and started learning Spanish again!
Eva Hanna 5:34:35 PM
qué bueno! I have also been using duolinguo daily to work on Greek and Spanish - a productive distraction!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:37:41 PM
You should be able to find me on there i you choose. My Voto Latino volunteering involved more Google Translate than I'd like going forward!
Bud Burroughs 6:02:57 PM
Can't recall if it was you or somebody else who played a track from this 75 Dollar Bill record recently, but I'm really liking it.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:05:05 PM
They put up a live performance a month since May on their Bandcamp. This one was recorded right before lockdown in March 2020.
Corage Mike 6:11:10 PM
The before times....
Jon Solomon (host) 6:11:52 PM
I remember them fondly!
Christine Duffy 7:05:26 PM
Hey DJ Jon Solomon and good people of the chat *waves*
Christine Duffy 7:06:07 PM
This Mary Lattimore track is so beautiful. It's like a dreamscape. Thanks for playing it.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:05:46 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:06:26 PM
I was listening to Mary's latest album and an Advance Base record earlier today and that combo put me in a very nice headspace.
Christine Duffy 7:07:48 PM
This is just gorgeous. remember listening to that sound collage, Jon. The one you played on your show exactly 4 years ago.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:07:34 PM
Boy, was that a night.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:07:57 PM
Hope to have some good news out of Arizona at 9:30 pm ET and 12:30 am ET!
Christine Duffy 7:08:48 PM
I was still in shock, and of course turned on WPRB for some kind of solace.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:01 PM
I'm glad we could be there for you then and now. It helps me get through many a day as well.
jimbeaux 7:16:03 PM

Jon Solomon (host) 7:17:20 PM

Wow. Thank you for these healing sounds.

Christine Duffy 7:27:19 PM
*waves* Hi, jimbeaux
Jon Solomon (host) 7:27:23 PM
Yeah, that's quite the deal!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:27:41 PM
If anyone else wants to snag it - https://marylattimoreharpist.bandcamp.com/track/a-unicorn-catches-a-falling-star-in-heaven
Christine Duffy 7:27:41 PM
A dollar? Now that's really value for money.
jimbeaux 7:28:15 PM
Christine Duffy 7:28:14 PM
I'll be buying it too. How could I not?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:28:37 PM
Tell her you heard it on WPRB. I'm confident she'll be charmed by that.
jimbeaux 7:29:28 PM
makes a perfect gift!
Mark 7:49:24 PM
The sunday recording turned out rather perfect My request when u go back to live in studio - that wilbo is back and precedes u I miss the the pre show banter :)
Jon Solomon (host) 7:51:43 PM
Man, I miss Wilbo so much! Thanks for the reminder to email him and see how he is doing!
jimbeaux 7:55:35 PM
getting a nice congotronics vibe here
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:32 PM
I needed something exactly 6:20 in length and this was my favorite find handy!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:58:16 PM
Really appreciate all you fine individuals tuning in this Wednesday. Next week's show might be similar, might be different. We'll all find out together!
