Bud Burroughs 5:01:56 PM
And all is once again well in radioland!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:02:51 PM
Yeah, glad that is sorted! Thanks for confirming it was more than just me.
Bud Burroughs 5:06:14 PM
Most appropriate song imaginable!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:06:04 PM
I had some other finalists (and you'll hear at least one of them tonight) but this (rightfully) won out.
Christine Duffy 5:28:13 PM
Good evening, DJ Jon and to all the fine people in the chat *waves*
Jon Solomon (host) 5:28:33 PM
Hello! Welcome into the chat!
Christine Duffy 5:29:04 PM
I was grooving to Al Green; thanks for including it!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:29:27 PM
Somehow I didn't learn about that one until this week thanks to my friend Carrie.
Teresa Peacock 5:30:08 PM
So great to hear a track from this second Evens album! And, yeah, it perfectly captures this moment! Love it!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:29:57 PM
A couple pals were driving around singing it and into the playlist it went
Christine Duffy 5:35:12 PM
That's why I love Keeping Score at Home: every week I hear new stuff like music by The Evens.
Rade Jaeckle 5:36:05 PM
The Evens are the best "Seated Duo Rocking Out Hard" band of all time. Change my mind!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:37:03 PM
I won't argue that! Recently I listened to an interview with Ian from The Evens who said when Joe from Fugazi joined up to form Coriky the first thing he said was (basically) "I am NOT sitting down!"
Rade Jaeckle 5:39:38 PM
Haha! Say, Jon ... do you remember an indie band called John's Black Dirt from Minneapolis? You introduced me to them back around '97 or so. Sorry if that makes you feel old. :-) Anyway, I would love to request them if you have them around the studio.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:40:15 PM
I *do* remember that band and I'd be happy to include them during a future show!
Rade Jaeckle 5:40:46 PM
Oh, sweet! Sure, future show would be great. Thanks, amigo!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:41:41 PM
Of course! Just discovered they have a full unreleased album here - https://johnsblackdirt.bandcamp.com
Christine Duffy 5:43:35 PM
Bandcamp has been a godsend during the pandemic.
Rade Jaeckle 5:43:32 PM
Oh wow ... good find. I gave away my Perpetual Optimism CD to a young musician years ago. So that blue vinyl option looks delightful.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:43:52 PM
Had no idea. Looks like they put it up in February. Will have to listen when off-air.
Rade Jaeckle 5:47:02 PM
Also, I forgot how good the Grass Records label was that John's Black Dirt was on. Lotsa important indie bands put out releases on it ...
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:13 PM
True indeed. Unfortunately, it also means a bunch of those bands haven't been able to get their rights back for reissues (Brainiac for example).
Rade Jaeckle 5:50:38 PM
Oh dear. One of those type of labels. That's unfortunate. Also, I'm pretty sure you introduced me to the Karl Hendricks Trio from said label way back then.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:54:25 PM
The best.
Katherine Graham 6:07:54 PM
Jon whatever you played was the best/very representative sound for me to drive to as I tried to navigate to the grocery store in this rain
Jon Solomon (host) 6:07:42 PM
The free jazz that just finished up?
Katherine Graham 6:08:38 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:08:16 PM
Nice. Hands at 10 and 2!
Katherine Graham 6:09:33 PM
Yep, gripped very hard at 10 and 2. (Context: I am ~becoming~ a better driver)
Jon Solomon (host) 6:10:17 PM
Excellent. No Tokyo Drifting tonight!
Christine Duffy 6:16:05 PM
Katherine, you're already a better driver when you listen to WPRB on the car radio. No source, just my opinion.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:08 PM
I have to go to the DMV tomorrow, perhaps if I put WPRB on there won't be as long a line as I fear!
Christine Duffy 6:29:53 PM
Good luck at the DMV. I bet 'PRB will bump you up in line somehow. It's kind of magic like that.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:31:21 PM
I can always leave. Have until the end of the month for this vehicle inspection!
jimbeaux 6:38:28 PM
Just blast it thru a Radio Raheem-scale boombox outside in line and scare people away...
Jon Solomon (host) 6:39:44 PM
I like the way you think. Better yet, I'll wear only the boxer shorts you found that I saw a link for in a different show's chat!!
Matthew Snopenhauer 6:40:31 PM
Misheard Wax Chattels as Waxed Genitals.
jimbeaux 6:40:47 PM
Ha! Hope you're an XL or have suspenders for them.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:41:12 PM
I'll keep shopping around. In my mind the COC logo was repeating all over the garment.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:41:47 PM
WaXXXed Chattels.
jimbeaux 6:45:42 PM
I worked with Mike from CoC "briefly" in Philly but we never talked boxers.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:47:01 PM
I'm sure it would be totally normal to look him up in 2020 and open the conversation with a discussion of boxer short design.
jimbeaux 6:50:12 PM
Christine Duffy 6:51:03 PM
In 2020, anything goes.
Christine Duffy 6:55:14 PM
Like playing the Yub Nub song.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:56:04 PM
Thank you for reminding me a change I need to make to my playlist!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:58:10 PM
Dancing Ewok .gif added to the header.
Christine Duffy 6:58:54 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:58:28 PM
Look at that lil' guy go!
Christine Duffy 7:00:15 PM
It does my heart good. I genuinely laughed out loud at that .gif
Jon Solomon (host) 7:03:06 PM
Swapped it out for a larger one.
Christine Duffy 7:04:26 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:05:07 PM
Ooh, just learned how to adjust .gif size in Spinitron. What a night.
Maura Johnston 7:12:43 PM
Maura Johnston 7:12:56 PM
Mike Pace!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:44 PM
Maura Johnston!
Maura Johnston 7:13:43 PM
Jon! Solomonnnnnn!!!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:13:20 PM
That's ME!
Maura Johnston 7:13:57 PM
I am practicing my ring announcing skills.
Maura Johnston 7:14:38 PM
The Spinitron chat function is pretty nice!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:14:51 PM
Yeah, especially when there's a good crew going. It could use a width adjust option (links get messy) and the ability to @ different people participating.
Maura Johnston 7:19:48 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:22:37 PM
Time for a snack. Anyone else snacking while listening to the radio tonight? If so, NAME YOUR SNACKS.
Christine Duffy 7:27:46 PM
Snack: I recently ate a Lenny's & Lenny's chocolate chip cookie. It's amusing that they say it's 2 servings, as if ANYONE would eat half of that delicious cookie and then STOP.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:28:52 PM
Quality snack. I had two handfuls of raisins and am chasing them with a sub-par grapefruit seltzer. MORE SNACKS, PLEASE.
Christine Duffy 7:30:13 PM
Correction: Lenny's & Larry's Complete Cookie. The cookie that eats like a meal!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:34:54 PM
The did say it would be complete.
Maura Johnston 7:39:31 PM
Onesto sea salt crackers and Trader Joe’s garlic spread/dip. Plus an RRG!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:40:16 PM
Oh that sounds very good. I got some curried cauliflower at a middle eastern grocery on Sunday that RULES. So much turmeric.
Maura Johnston 7:41:20 PM
Christine Duffy 7:48:04 PM
Maura, that sounds delicious. What's a RRG?
jimbeaux 7:50:02 PM
late dinner: burmese curry noodle soup with crispy chickpeas!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:49:35 PM
Oh, well done Jim!
Maura Johnston 7:49:54 PM
@Christine: Ruby Red Grapefruit by Polar Seltzer, my favorite!
Christine Duffy 7:50:41 PM
jimbeaux, your dinner rules.
jimbeaux 7:51:09 PM
tasty, love to make it!
Christine Duffy 7:51:56 PM
@Maura, Polar RRG sounds delicious! I'll get some next time I'm at the grocery store.
jimbeaux 7:52:32 PM
got distracted by the chat and was late for an evening meeting :) :(
jimbeaux 7:53:07 PM
thx jon and chat folks!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:52:40 PM
Happens to the best of us (and by that I mean you), Be well, Jim!
Christine Duffy 7:53:17 PM
Just blame us. 😃
Teresa Peacock 7:52:44 PM
@Maura Johnston -- My favorite Polar seltzer flavor is also Ruby Red Grapefruit! Great minds etc.!
Christine Duffy 7:53:53 PM
Thanks, DJ Jon & everybody! Another super-awesome show. Yub Nub!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:40 PM
The 365 Grapefruit seltzer I am drinking is no RRG that's for sure (but it was a free discard from my parents' fridge).
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:20 PM
They unloaded like six of them on me when I stopped by their driveway on Monday to pick up a gift for my kid.
Christine Duffy 7:55:13 PM
You have great parents!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:55:14 PM
That is correct. Though I think they forgot to tune in tonight. Whoops.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:56:42 PM
In case you didn't already figure it out, this is the last song of the night and a worthy transition to Flex Luther's program if I ever heard one!
Christine Duffy 7:57:41 PM
Excellent segue.
Christine Duffy 7:58:40 PM
Thanks for all the time & work you put into making your show every week, Jon. WPRB is getting me through 2020.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:48 PM
My pleasure, CD. Two more weeks of regular shows and then most of December will have fill-ins as I prep my Xmas show. Got a great assortment of guest DJs on tap though!
