Hell yeah. Got a lot of 'em lined up tonight.

Space Cowboy 8:08:13 PM
jesus they are bringing it
Mike Lupica (host) 8:08:37 PM
I just got turned on to these guys by an old radio pal from another station. Early indications suggest serious badassery!
Christine Duffy 8:11:05 PM
Hey DJ Mike *waves* Great opener tonight.
Christine Duffy 8:11:17 PM
Hi, Space Cowboy 👋
Mike Lupica (host) 8:10:44 PM
Hey Christine! Welcome back!
Space Cowboy 8:10:50 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 8:19:51 PM
Before anyone asks, yes, we will be acknowledging the 40th anniversary of John Lennon's murder. I have a story about a weird, personal connection to that night/event. Probably sometime in hour two. (Suspense...)
Space Cowboy 8:21:55 PM
is this song a little grim or is it me....
Space Cowboy 8:22:07 PM
aha a story good..
Mike Lupica (host) 8:22:19 PM
Nope, it's definitely not you.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:24:24 PM
Granted, it harkens back to the good old days of all the songs on the radio being about... getting piss drunk and exhuming the corpse of your dead lover.
jimbeaux 8:39:56 PM
Theme show? Code Blue by TSOL fits right in.
jimbeaux 8:40:29 PM
...and the Necros.
Space Cowboy 8:41:11 PM
ugh dont get me started thats like being in the middle of the black plague and saying knaa uhhh
Space Cowboy 8:41:53 PM
how did a virus get political- nuts
jimbeaux 8:42:37 PM
ok, save that theme for laaaaattterrrr :)
Charlie Lewis 8:46:41 PM
Hi. Listening with one eye, while working on some other crap. Will chime in when able to.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:46:32 PM
Welcome Charlie! I hope you're using your bad eye to listen.
Charlie Lewis 8:47:28 PM
using the one with the patch
Mike Lupica (host) 8:47:51 PM
Team #amblyopia
Charlie Lewis 8:48:54 PM
jimbeaux 8:49:00 PM
go team!
jimbeaux 8:52:21 PM
I often wear an eyepatch...to protect the good one. I wanna be able to see a real nice painting when I'm 80 with the best eye possible.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:53:08 PM
You're ahead of the fashion curve for the next global plague!
Charlie Lewis 8:54:26 PM
I remember seeing a live performance of this song, but not by this band;)
Mike Lupica (host) 8:55:40 PM
@Charlie, you're playing a dangerous game. Let's just say that any karaoke videos of me that may or may not exist on the internet will surely keep me out of any kind of elected office I might one day care to run for.
Charlie Lewis 8:56:43 PM
I share your pain.
Greetings and Salutations!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:56:41 PM
Hey MrM!
Charlie Lewis 8:58:27 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 8:58:23 PM
Space Cowboy 8:58:31 PM
ohh this is my fave punkish song
Space Cowboy 8:58:42 PM
so good
Mike Lupica (host) 8:59:27 PM
More Punkish Rock coming up later!
Space Cowboy 8:59:54 PM
so well written, simple and sooo true
Charlie Lewis 9:00:46 PM
I love her broad midwest accent, like the "a" in afternoon
Charlie Lewis 9:05:43 PM

Mike Lupica (host) 9:23:25 PM
Welcome Twofive, and thanks!
Mark 9:28:39 PM
@charlie - love 💕 the midwest accent too :)
Charlie Lewis 9:40:01 PM
got a friend w that Chicago accent, so great
Bo 9:40:27 PM
Thanks for the Primitives track which I don't recall ever hearing, I remember buying 'Crash' in '86 and playin' it to death.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:41:21 PM
Same here, Bo. That record is criminally forgotten.
Bo 9:42:20 PM
Mark 9:43:13 PM
This one a blast from the past !
Bo 9:45:11 PM
@ Mark, Wreckless Eric is one hilarious chap!
Mark 9:47:26 PM
Haha yes haven’t heard that in forever :)
Bo 9:47:53 PM
Happy Birthday Tom Waits or did I dream that?
Charlie Lewis 9:49:42 PM
Yes, 71 today.
Bo 9:51:57 PM
Right on Charlie!
Mark 9:56:11 PM

Bo 9:59:26 PM
James Cordon Mike
Mark 9:58:51 PM

Bo 10:00:27 PM
Helluva story Mike.
jimbeaux 10:02:43 PM
yeah, good one!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:03:24 PM
Where would I be without all of you?!?!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:06:36 PM
@Mark, it was late. It had literally happened just moments before we walked around the corner, so probably around 11 PM?
Charlie Lewis 10:10:55 PM
I hadn't thought until just now that Lennon's been dead the same number of years he was alive.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:12:39 PM
I know, crazy - right?
Mark 10:14:24 PM
There’s some good you tubes of the events that lead to cosell announcing it / ur coming out of tavern on green aligns with where happened / tragic story:(
Mark 10:18:26 PM
And time of shooting listed as 10:50
Mike Lupica (host) 10:19:03 PM
Scrolling back through comments, is it really Tom Waits' birthday? Shit, I have to run inside to grab a record...
Bo 10:20:48 PM
@Mike, so I am told.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:22:31 PM
Das Internet confirms!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:28:33 PM
Tom Waits LP retrieved from deep storage. Will be played before I clear outta here at 11.
Bo 10:31:41 PM
Charlie Lewis 10:33:27 PM

jimbeaux 10:37:52 PM

jimbeaux 10:45:55 PM
somethin real special about a less-schticky Tom. love this album.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:46:52 PM
I fought Tom Waits appreciation for decades -- would always hear great songs In Other People's Cars, but would then buy a bad record and feel like a chump. Finally figured out I should just go back to the original texts.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:49:20 PM
I agree and concur. Why’d he make a bad record?! He’s the chump! Happy Birthday! 🥸
jimbeaux 10:49:41 PM
gosh Beverly Glenn-Copeland is so incredible. Great story. you're just getting me right in the guts at the end of the show
Mike Lupica (host) 10:51:26 PM
Shit, I'm getting myself in the gut, too.
Mark 10:53:39 PM
Lots of lovely music tonite
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:54:10 PM
Next week, pics and gifs for every track, again?!? Huh!?! Yeah?!?
Charlie Lewis 10:55:02 PM
Yeah, thanks for this show! Great stuff.
jimbeaux 10:54:42 PM
there was also some electric prunes banter in the chat on Tim's show
Mark 10:56:10 PM
Yes lots of aphrodities in last 5 hours :)
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:56:08 PM
Cheers Dears! Even those with Big Ears! 🖤💀
Bo 10:56:55 PM
Class Show Mike, I bid you all a good night.
