Jon Solomon (host) 4:59:26 PM
The chat? It is OPEN!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:01:13 PM
The show? It is UNDERWAY!
Bud Burroughs 5:06:55 PM
Was I dreaming, or did you mention doing a Christmas Eve marathon during last week's show? That would be delightful antidote to the pandemic blahs!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:08:23 PM
It is no dream. The marathon will happen on WPRB in 2020!
Bud Burroughs 5:08:42 PM
Excellent, I was afraid it would be another Covid casualty!
Steve Klischies 5:08:42 PM
Oh my... Bud, if you don't know, you have a treat in store...
Jon Solomon (host) 5:08:45 PM
5 pm on 12/24 until 6 pm on 12/25.
Steve Klischies 5:09:11 PM
Especially if you like snails.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:31 PM
Bud, I'm turning my dining room table into a mini radio station the Monday after Thanksgiving. Hopefully it all goes successfully. Regardless, we'll all be together, separately.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:49 PM
Bud Burroughs 5:10:18 PM
Now if only someone could convince Thomas to do another of his post-marathon sound collage shows it would be a Merry Christmas indeed.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:09 PM
Oh, I would really enjoy that. I don't know what the post-marathon plan is but I can ask the Program Director.
Bud Burroughs 5:14:14 PM
I don't think I've heard him on the air since things went virtual.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:14:34 PM
Thomas "retired" from radio well before the pandemic hit, but I hope he'll return one day.
Bud Burroughs 5:15:56 PM
Indeed - I know he came back for a few short stints after his "retirement", so I certainly hope so.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:17:22 PM
I know someone in the chat asked about Wilbo a few weeks back, I emailed him and he is doing well. Unfortunately unable to record shows from home, but doing well.
Teresa Peacock 5:29:53 PM
I'm so glad to hear that Wilbo's doing well! I've missed his presence on WPRB very much. Please tell him 'hello' from me!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:29:50 PM
I shall. He misses all of us a great deal and the feeling is mutual.
Christine Duffy 5:31:15 PM
Hey DJ Jon, hello all in the chat *waves*
Jon Solomon (host) 5:31:26 PM
Hey hey!
Christine Duffy 5:32:05 PM
Oh good, I'm glad to hear Wilbo's doing well. I miss hearing him on PRB also.
Mark 5:37:00 PM
it was i who mentioned i miss the banter between js and wilbo in the transition between shows My how we all miss the old timey days :(
Jon Solomon (host) 5:37:20 PM
Yeah. I should wrangle how to get him to "call in" for a future show.
Mark 5:38:53 PM
Haha plus we all miss his opening show theme !
Christine Duffy 5:38:26 PM
That would be awesome if you could convince Wilbo to do a call in!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:38:52 PM
Will workshop this idea now that I've had it.
Bud Burroughs 5:41:17 PM
Yeah, it would be great to hear his voice again!
Steve Klischies 5:52:13 PM
This reminds me that I still have Engine Kid's "Novocaine" on my wishlist
Jon Solomon (host) 5:52:41 PM
I think they're running out of stuff to post but I hope some live tapes might be next up.
Steve Klischies 5:53:05 PM
You had played "1/4 Mile Thunder" a while ago and that went right on the list.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:54:05 PM
Yep. All that stuff is "name your price" so whatever they post I snag.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:03:28 PM
Since we're about to have a mid-show dinner over here at Ice Station Solomon, what's on YOUR dinner docket?
Steve Klischies 6:07:49 PM
Spicy vegetable tacos!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:07:49 PM
Well, that sounds delicious!
Steve Klischies 6:09:14 PM
I'm pretty optimistic for that exact result.
Christine Duffy 6:12:03 PM
A few spinach & cheese raviolis
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 6:13:00 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:13:08 PM
I had "leftover ravioli that someone didn't eat a school for her lunch" as my pre-show snack.
Christine Duffy 6:17:02 PM
Sounds delicious and effecient, DJ Jon. And DJ Dave, are you drinking whiskey for dinner?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:19:48 PM
Hey 🐛 Hey 🐛 Hey 🐛.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 6:20:55 PM
Yes. With a side of raviolis, coincidentally. And salad.
Steve Klischies 6:21:36 PM
Nice slate of "live" shows streaming over the next few weeks... Parquet Courts, Dinosaur Jr., Soccer Mommy. And the METZ one from a few weeks back was a blast.
Christine Duffy 6:23:22 PM
💗 Sahel Sounds.
Mark 6:35:24 PM
Nick Miillevoi concert replay tonite right ?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:37:04 PM
Mark 6:40:05 PM
Hmmmm - unfortunately gives me a wistful feeling / think he was in the last indoor concert I saw last winter 🥶
Jon Solomon (host) 6:40:57 PM
I am pretty sure my final indoor concert was the final Everybody Hits matinee show as well.
Mark 6:44:07 PM
Any other chatters like to share their final indoor concerts/ i sure hope my go to showplace survives
Teresa Peacock 7:05:16 PM
Ooooo!!! Something to look forward to this coming January! Liking this a lot!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:08:15 PM
Yeah, I am certainly curious to hear some more.
Mark 7:08:23 PM
Yes something to look forward to ! Pretty crazy video popped up when I shazamed it
Jon Solomon (host) 7:08:33 PM
Right now my most looked-forward-to record of 2021 is probably the Jane Weaver.
Teresa Peacock 7:08:28 PM
OOOOOOoooo! I love Jane Weaver as well! Yay!!!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:09:16 PM
(But that's the case with me and most years that have a Jane Weaver record in them.)
Teresa Peacock 7:08:57 PM
Teresa Peacock 7:09:41 PM
How is Kate Bush NOT the singer of Al Massrieen?!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:11:23 PM
Excellent question. To the time machine!
Teresa Peacock 7:11:20 PM
That Habibi Funk collection has been one of the best revelations of 2020, imho.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:57 PM
Yeah, hearing volume 14 on Hanna's show was a game-changer for me.
Christine Duffy 7:12:59 PM
Easy for you to say, DJ Jon.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:13:24 PM
*volume 13.
Bo 7:31:42 PM
Hi Jon, man this music is a great accompaniment to my salmon, green beans and boiled spuds, and it helps that I happen to know said musician, thank you for the great selection of tunes.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:34:21 PM
He's a good one. Someday, when this is all over I hope he and I will go on a pizza adventure.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:44:56 PM
I love the horns on this one.
Bo 7:48:04 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:01 PM
I swear it got considerably colder in here as these spooky sounds were broadcast.
Bo 7:55:54 PM
I'm not afraid.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:56:33 PM
We've reached the last song of the night. Thanks for making the chat a fun place for another Wednesday. I'm back here from 5-8 pm ET in seven days...
Bo 7:58:10 PM
Thanks Jon, be well, looking forward to Wednesday week!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:25 PM
Absolutely. I enjoy seeing several of you in other show chats during the week too!
Bo 7:59:18 PM
