Krista (host) 7:41:42 AM
lucky!
kentman 7:44:57 AM
every week PRB DJs send me looking for new music, love it! stuff I never heard before
Krista (host) 7:45:27 AM
glad to hear it! I'm always on the prowl for something new to hear
Krista (host) 7:46:19 AM
Sometimes the other DJs send ME looking for new music, too! I've got songs inspired by: Commie Francis, Elliot, and Liz Bot this week
kentman 7:47:40 AM
Mike Lupica had me reelin last night

thanx krista
Krista (host) 7:57:12 AM
they're good additions to any day or mental jukebox
Krista (host) 8:38:58 AM
"holding on to the edge of the night" is one of my favorite songs I play this week, such gorgeous lyrics + voice
connor 8:52:15 AM
philly local!
Krista (host) 8:53:33 AM
Yes! A gem!
connor 8:53:46 AM
it gives me big paul mccartney vibes
Krista (host) 8:55:22 AM
The story of her album "Paint a Lady" is a wild one. The master sat IN HER BASEMENT until the 2000s when it was rediscovered by some record hunting fiend, I don't remember the name, and re-released
jimbeaux 8:55:54 AM
well...onions ARE the foundation of almost every dish. I <3 onions!
Krista (host) 8:56:39 AM
She was also a prolific jingle writer for ads, though I haven't searched which ads. I agree about the paul mccartney vibes
Krista (host) 8:57:10 AM
Nothing better than an ice cream sundae on a bed of onions, jimbeaux, I agree
jimbeaux 8:57:00 AM
i have made garlic ice cream before!
Krista (host) 8:58:20 AM
how was it? My dad used to mix sauerkraut into my ice cream which he thought was hilarious, it didn't change the taste of the ice cream, just the texture
jimbeaux 8:58:30 AM
it was good! whole bulb roasted, touch of salt, touch of lemon juice for a quart batch.
connor 8:59:24 AM
we got a machine earlier this summer, might have to try a garlic batch
Krista (host) 9:00:52 AM
oh, to have an ice cream machine! what have you made so far??
connor 9:02:38 AM
the first ever was the best so far, a brilliant cherry, then we went on to buttermilk, classic vanilla, coconut, mint chip - nothing too adventurous yet!
Krista (host) 9:03:29 AM
also if you make the jimbeaux garlic special you have to report back on it
connor 9:03:17 AM
haha absolutely
Krista (host) 9:05:16 AM
the ice cream shop owowcow in Lambertville frequently has very interesting flavors. My roommate will get takeout ice cream there and pick just based on the name. "What flavor is this?" him: "oh uh...Home Alone Movie Pun?"
jimbeaux 9:05:12 AM
someone gave us one...they don't cost much! I've made ginger, green apple, matcha, gooseberry.
Mark 9:05:17 AM
Great discussion on these eccentric ice cream recipes this morning I’m gonna take some to recommend to my ice cream shop where she just started making her own ice craam this month
connor 9:06:13 AM
i lived down the street from that place for a few years! my favorite was smashing lemon blueberry with either house vanilla or a honey/flower thing if they had it
Krista (host) 9:07:02 AM
I've been working on making the perfect cup of matcha tea, I think I've got it down to how I like it. Fresh gooseberries? I keep striking out on finding those locally.
jimbeaux 9:07:11 AM
rarely find in markets...just grow them! old adage is "pint of gooseberries, pint of blood" because of the thorns.
Krista (host) 9:08:11 AM
@connor their ice cream is just incredible. the quality of the local ingredients shines through. I am not much of a wine drinker but I AM a milk drinker and I could talk anyone's ear off as to the "terroir" of the different local dairies
Krista (host) 9:08:43 AM
evvvery gooseberry has its thorn
Krista (host) 9:08:52 AM
every ice cream has its garrrrlic bulb
connor 9:08:35 AM
i used to talk with a neighbor about the icey-creamy spectrum. he proposed that bent spoon is a bit more icey and owow on the creamier side
Krista (host) 9:10:21 AM
I don't have much experience with bent spoon! I know that owow uses honey, i wonder if that makes a difference in the freezing temperature of the ice cream
connor 9:10:23 AM
lol @ gooseberry seal
connor 9:11:16 AM
oh wait i got kiss from a rose mixed up with that song
Krista (host) 9:12:09 AM
they're not the same song? pretty much the same song
Krista (host) 9:12:55 AM
seal's song contains a lyric which has always baffled me: But did you know that when it snows My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen?
Krista (host) 9:13:09 AM
what does that mean. why do his eyes get big in the snow.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:15:26 AM
Seal purposely wrote cryptic lyrics.
connor 9:18:05 AM
i did not know that, seal, thank you for telling me
Krista (host) 9:19:16 AM
the first "valleri" got its original radioplay from bootlegs DJs recorded from the Monkees television show
Krista (host) 9:21:12 AM
GET READY TO DANCE, also I will play the remix of Valerie next week that was so good that Steve Winwood re-recorded vocals for it!
jimbeaux 9:35:42 AM
this swanky!
Krista (host) 9:38:11 AM
yes! i just got the bonus track version of this album
Brian D 9:41:10 AM
I liked that library funk last track
Krista (host) 9:42:53 AM
they digitized the whole collection last year! https://thevinylfactory.com/news/kpm-library-music-label-digitised-catalogue/
Brian D 9:42:44 AM
O that's great. KPM has so many little nuggets.
Krista (host) 9:44:14 AM
the ones mentioned in the article are a brilliant little sampler: Soul Organ Showcase to Marches For Any Occassion and A Moog for All Reasons
Krista (host) 9:45:04 AM
an eccentric spelling of occasion, even
Brian D 9:46:10 AM
Nicea
Brian D 9:47:15 AM
Nice. I like that one funky 70s piece that played in older movie theaters before the feature.
Krista (host) 9:48:43 AM
I know the one you mean but I don't know the actual name of it
Brian D 9:48:56 AM
And the orig NFL theme is fun all stripped down. I love the series of lps/cds that start with Beyond the Valley of the ____-beats.
Brian D 9:50:59 AM
Racy lp art covers. But fun discoveries inside. Library funk, moog synth funk even a Schoolhouse Rock song! "I Got Six".
Krista (host) 9:54:06 AM
nice
Krista (host) 9:55:32 AM
I know I play Doris Duke a lot and that's because she put out my favorite album of all time, I'm A Loser.
kentman 9:56:46 AM
the Ampero Ochoa lp is divine, thanx, krista
Krista (host) 9:56:58 AM
you're welcome, kentman, I'm a stay at home mom so I really felt those lyrics sometimes
Brian D 9:57:53 AM
I missed a good show! Caught the last few. Great set list. Rewind to Owowcow: I first went to the orig location in Harrow/Nockamixon Pa. They had dark chocolate jalapeňo. Delish
Krista (host) 9:58:30 AM
it will be rebroadcast @3 am on Thursday, and archived on mixxcloud
Krista (host) 9:59:03 AM
I'm going to close the chat now so stitching pink can start hers! bye, thanks for listening!
