of Reed/Cockburn/Wasserman
Jon Solomon (host) 6:33:21 AM
I am still not 100% satisfied with this VU / Lou set but I think it is close to what I want it to be and this song sounds especially good at 6:30 am!

I wish I did more with all the band Xmas IDs I have. If you want some...
Sebastian Petsu 6:35:11 AM
love this mash-up!
DJ Tenderloin 6:35:56 AM
WHAT?! what a cool mash up!
Sebastian Petsu 6:36:16 AM
surprised there aren't more sleighbells though. "Waitin For the Man"'s rhythm is perfect for heavy bells tacked on
Carlin 6:37:35 AM
now wait a minute
DJ Tenderloin 6:37:59 AM
of course - mojochronic - thought it seemed familiar. his zeppelin xmas mash is life changing
DJ Tenderloin 6:39:13 AM
as well as his? hers? theirs? beatles and motown mashes too. way outta my league
DJ Tenderloin 6:44:23 AM
thanks again Jon for the shout out - for anyone lookin' for even more - complete album released this year! Happy happy joy joy er'body - https://soundcloud.com/djtenderloin/sets/the-inevitable-dj-tenderloin-holiday-record
Sebastian Petsu 6:45:28 AM
glad you played my "Morrissey" find a little over an hour ago!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:46:25 AM
Thank you again for that. I admit I was not 100% sure who sent it my way but I suspected...
Sebastian Petsu 6:46:30 AM
sad i missed "Sleigher Snowing Blood" but intrigued to search it out!
Sebastian Petsu 6:48:23 AM
and i only had it cuz a friend passed a "Moz odds and sods" tape on to me....the marathon takes a village, really!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:48:31 AM
True true.
Joanna Hutchinson 6:48:55 AM
Thanks for the shoutout to Merkel and the Merkelettes, who are all certainly still sleeping.
Dan Weis 6:51:15 AM
I wonder if the Misfits parody band the Misfats have written any Holiday tunes
dave doughman 6:52:04 AM
Germany is wide awake.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:51:54 AM
Good day, Germany!
Dan Weis 6:52:01 AM
dave that's awesome. Merry Christmas
Joanna Hutchinson 6:52:22 AM
Guten tag!
dave doughman 6:53:06 AM
love you Jon, thanks for soundtracking another traumatic, i mean joyous Christmas!
dave doughman 6:53:49 AM
Guten Tag, or as we say in Hamburg: Moin Moin!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:54:40 AM
Get ready for a ride!
Sebastian Petsu 6:58:10 AM
thanks for the link DJ Tenderloin!
Joanna Hutchinson 7:02:16 AM
This Mikal Cronin is epic
Jon Solomon (host) 7:02:48 AM
Yeah, it is an odyssey but so ridiculous I am charmed.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:05:37 AM
Ride the ride!
DJ Tenderloin 7:07:49 AM
My pleasure Sebastian Petsu - and yes this is mesmerizing in a horrible way - and scarily this is just the tip of the iceberg for 8 bit christmas music.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:08:01 AM
The transitions are what get me.
Joanna Hutchinson 7:11:52 AM
haha this song is great. 27+ minutes?!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:14 AM
All I'll say is your ride is more than 50% complete.
DJ Tenderloin 7:13:58 AM
this is what it sounds like when santa gets into the crystal meth
Jon Solomon (host) 7:14:11 AM
I am both energized and demoralized by this. Neither is a bad thing.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:15:26 AM
I can't believe my family is still asleep. Expected a kick line out of the bedroom while this was on.
Carlin 7:15:46 AM
Pleased with my decision to transition to better headphones about a half hour ago - really getting the full suffer^h^h^h^h^h^heffect.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:17:01 AM
I support this. I believe in you!
DJ Tenderloin 7:20:33 AM
santa's pupils look big and glassy and he just threw up christmas cookies all over blitzen...
Jon Solomon (host) 7:20:15 AM
DJ Tenderloin 7:21:30 AM
my wife is actually loving this.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:07 AM
I think it is actually very enjoyable. Maddening, but enjoyable.
Sebastian Petsu 7:21:12 AM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:22:17 AM
Sebastian Petsu 7:23:15 AM
[audible cheering]
DJ Tenderloin 7:27:05 AM
i love this albert brooks thing - a classic.
Dan Weis 7:27:26 AM
RIP Jek Porkins
Jon Solomon (host) 7:26:53 AM
There we go.
Dan Weis 7:27:44 AM
It's early ha
Dan Weis 7:28:27 AM
Jon how's it feel doing the show from home and not in the studio?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:28:44 AM
To this point and no point further I like most of it an exceptional amount.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:29:11 AM
Just a couple minor things I would change. Like this chair I am in isn't as good on my back as a WPRB chair, weirdly.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:29:28 AM
But still better than our regular dining room table chairs.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:29:34 AM
No load in! No load out!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:30:49 AM
It will be nice to turn the house back into a house eventually.
Sebastian Petsu 7:31:15 AM
"It's Cliched to Be Cynical..." is now in my top 5 Christmas songs. And I probably would've never have heard it if it weren't for this marathon years ago
Jon Solomon (host) 7:31:36 AM
Aw. That's so great.
Sebastian Petsu 7:32:12 AM
but i'm not gonna lie, i started crying over here. it's tough this year
Dan Weis 7:33:16 AM
Wishing you a great Holiday Season and awesome 2021 Sebastian
Sebastian Petsu 7:33:54 AM
aw, thanks Dan! you too!
Steven Howard 7:34:00 AM
so happy I got to hear half man again, my fav from last year!
DJ Tenderloin 7:36:16 AM
hey man i don't know you but amen to that brother - tough year all around. 2020 can kiss a pig's ass! Hang in there man - maybe just maybe that light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train! Sending you the good thoughts...
Sebastian Petsu 7:38:15 AM
nice deep Bridgewater NJ reference there in the mic break! A "Commons" problem! I was crying, now i'm laughing! so much of my misspent youth was at that mall. ahh the emotional rollercoaster of the marathon!
Maura Johnston 7:38:25 AM
hi y’all! merry christmas
Mark 7:39:19 AM
Happy first sunrise in 32 years !
Jon Solomon (host) 7:38:51 AM
I can see the outside with my own eyes!
Dan Weis 7:39:04 AM
DJ Tenderloin amen brotha
Sebastian Petsu 7:39:29 AM
And thanks for the positive wishes DJ Tenderloin!
Dan Weis 7:40:06 AM
This show brings people together :)
DJ Tenderloin 7:41:17 AM
on a completely different and perhaps happier note - please tell me I have not missed JINGLE ROCK BELL
Dan Weis 7:41:37 AM
I don't think so
DJ Tenderloin 7:43:19 AM
thanks Jon - i think we all need a little JINGLE ROCK BELL this year for sure
Sebastian Petsu 7:44:28 AM
Merry Christmas Maura!
Maria T 7:45:03 AM
Merry Xmas!
Maria T 7:46:42 AM
How did I, of all people, not know there was a RUN ON holiday song?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:47:08 AM
I forgot and I own the record! Their drummer posted the video day before last and I said "Aha!"
Carlos Pedroni 7:50:07 AM
The wurster kid looking up at a Christmas tree
Jon Solomon (host) 7:49:36 AM
Lovely to see you all back in the chat this AM.
Sebastian Petsu 7:49:46 AM
, Mountain Goats' "This Year" was just in my head and we get this. Jon, I think you got my request telepathically
Bagel McJohnson 7:52:02 AM
Mountain Goats shows are one of the things I missed most this year
Rob Martinez 7:53:39 AM
Since 2006, I've called Jon Solomon every Christmas morning to say hello. It's a holiday tradition that I look forward to each year. Except the phone kept ringing and ringing at the WPRB studios.... Jon's at home!
Rob Martinez 7:54:19 AM
Merry Christmas Jon - glad to see you're still on the air!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:31 AM
Great comp this year, Rob. One of your best - and that is saying something!
Rob Martinez 7:55:55 AM
With all the USPS troubles, I'm glad it arrived
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:25 AM
Oh, I am still working off the download I must admit! But I believe I played 2-3 things from it.
Rob Martinez 7:59:07 AM
Thanks Jon! REQUEST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5gUNUPsLmc
Rob Martinez 7:59:22 AM
Emailing you the file now - off to open presents with the family
Sebastian Petsu 8:02:02 AM
what was that Mountain Goats track just before Hefner? it looks like it wasn't added to the playlist
Carlin 8:02:52 AM
It was a Robert Earl Keen song called Merry Christmas From The Family
Carlin 8:03:20 AM
(covered by your Mountain Goats)
Sebastian Petsu 8:03:45 AM
thanks, Carlin
Jon Solomon (host) 8:04:10 AM
Weird. It didn't get posted? Let me fix that!
Jon Solomon (host) 8:04:37 AM
It is in now.
Sebastian Petsu 8:04:59 AM
Jim Haku 8:06:21 AM
gotta request Space Christmas
DJ Tenderloin 8:06:33 AM
the Robert Earl Keen "bluegrass" version is really great - maybe Jon sticks it in somewhere? boy that didn't come out right...
Dan Ruccia 8:09:47 AM
Morning! Can't think of a better thing to start the day with than an Ayler Xmas!
Jon Solomon (host) 8:09:50 AM
I don't have a full library accessible b/c of my "from home" status for this marathon.
Jon Solomon (host) 8:09:57 AM
Perfect way to start the day!
Dan Ruccia 8:15:49 AM
I'm also here to tell you all that for reasons unknown, MF DOOM is trending on twitter right now. Has he ever done a Christmas song?
Jon Solomon (host) 8:16:05 AM
There's a mash up to be had. I'll make a note!
Jon Solomon (host) 8:16:39 AM
Thank you for being our man in the field (if Twitter was a field).
Andrew Wilkinson 8:17:14 AM
Merry Christmas Jon !

Maria T 8:31:26 AM
Who would retire "mistress for christmas," what kind of monster are they
Dan Ruccia 8:31:10 AM
Maybe they finally got a mistress?
Maria T 8:32:44 AM
@dan LOL
Carlin 8:32:52 AM
Ginsu II (?)
Carl Zimring 8:36:10 AM
Waking up to discover my wife had put the show on our sound system in time for me to fix breakfast to Mars Williams is truly the spirit of Christmas in action.

Good morning all back after a power failure sent me to bed a little earlier than usual. Glad to wake up with electric and the marathon⚡️⚡️📻🎶🎄
Brian D 8:51:22 AM
I just started reading Dean Wareham's book yesterday and I keep hearing and seeing references to Galaxie 500 now!
Brian D 8:51:54 AM
Good morning & Merry Christmas to you all
Live From The Barrage 8:52:11 AM
Santa Claus is childless. Jesus too. It strikes me odd! Thanks.
Jon Solomon (host) 8:51:36 AM
The power has held here so far, thankfully.
Selecta Jerry 8:51:56 AM
Your sounding strong Jon great job!
Commie Francis 8:53:25 AM
Ooh which Malcom tent did you play a song by back 4 hours ago after I fell asleep again?
Carlin 8:54:11 AM
He walked on the water, and he swam on the land.
Jon Solomon (host) 8:53:42 AM
Under The Mall.
Commie Francis 8:53:56 AM
The one who was in bunnybrains or the other one?
Carlin 8:55:01 AM

Jon Solomon (host) 8:56:29 AM
I wonder if this is the Christmas Wrapping that listener was thinking of?
MHR 8:56:39 AM
it's warranted
Brian D 8:57:59 AM
Commie Francis love your show!
Kevin M 8:59:00 AM
Good morning and merry Christmas everyone!
Commie Francis 8:59:00 AM
Thanks! I remember you from the chat! Good ol chat.
Brian D 8:59:57 AM
Commie Francis 9:00:13 AM
Merry Christmas! I got up in the middle of the night to watch my niece open presents in London, rewarding but exhausting!
Commie Francis 9:01:00 AM
For everyone involved. She went from squealing with joy over individually wrapped plastic dinos to demanding to open everyone else's presents too (she is 3)
Brian D 9:01:22 AM
U are the Transistor Sister and Jon our host is the Human Radio Station
Brian D 9:02:23 AM
Haa! She sounds like a kid. We'll let her into the club
Sebastian Petsu 9:03:32 AM
this is gettin' down music! give the bass player some!
Dan Ruccia 9:04:16 AM
@Commie: So did she get to open everyone else's presents??
Carlin 9:06:02 AM
OK - it was driving me nuts for a minute there - that earlier quoted bit was from "Get Ready" by Rare Earth
Brian D 9:07:03 AM
This does indeed rock the low end of Christmas
Brian D 9:07:17 AM
Yes Carlin!
DJ Tenderloin 9:07:27 AM
really digging this one Jon - do you know Molto Groovy Christmas?
DJ Tenderloin 9:08:17 AM
Carlo Poddighe
Jon Solomon (host) 9:08:05 AM
I don't believe I do!
DJ Tenderloin 9:11:14 AM
oh man you'll love . send you an mp3 via email now.
Commie Francis 9:13:07 AM
@dan she did not, she did rip the wrapping paper on one present for my brother and then sheepishly fold it back.
Jon Solomon (host) 9:13:11 AM
It can wait until after the marathon!
Kevin M 9:14:13 AM
Power stay on overnight Jon
Kevin M 9:14:17 AM
Sebastian Petsu 9:14:23 AM
with this drum solo i'm now chuckling at thoughts of the great Setting Up Drums LDB parody from yesterday. my fav new find so far of the marathon
Jon Solomon (host) 9:14:25 AM
So far!
Jon Solomon (host) 9:14:36 AM
How good was that one, Sebastian?!
Sebastian Petsu 9:15:04 AM
soooo goood.
Matt Emmerich 9:17:58 AM
This is killing me dad.
Maria T 9:17:38 AM
Is this a Personal & the Pizzas holiday song
Maria T 9:17:44 AM

Matt Emmerich 9:18:47 AM
Good stuff, Merry Christmas Jon.

Ross Dickinson 9:27:58 AM
Jon that was it! I just woke up and missed it playing, but I found it on soundcloud. Thanks!
Maria T 9:28:19 AM
@dan lindstrom group workout
Jon Solomon (host) 9:28:42 AM
Oh wow! What luck, Ross!
Jon Solomon (host) 9:28:58 AM
Sweatin' To The Lindstrom.
Maria T 9:29:33 AM
Do y'all think we can get Gritty to tweet about Jon's show?
Jon Solomon (host) 9:29:46 AM
I don't know if Gritty's handlers will allow.
MHR 9:30:38 AM
we can dream
MHR 9:30:59 AM
@dan same. don't know why I don't already
Sebastian Petsu 9:32:02 AM
parts of this This New Birds of America song sounds to me like David Bowie and Bruce's Dancin Ithe Dark making out together at a party.
Dan Ruccia 9:33:33 AM
Ross Dickinson 9:34:12 AM
Hah, you're telling me Jon! I tuned in just in time to hear you talking about the set

Merry Xmas. Here for Snaildartha and looking back at what I missed out on
Commie Francis 9:36:33 AM
It's funny feeling warm nostalgia listening to killdozer
Jon Solomon (host) 9:36:20 AM
They're our classic rock!
Commie Francis 9:36:59 AM
Jon i hope you will play Christmas fish by the didjits this year.
Jon Solomon (host) 9:36:29 AM
I might only have that one at WPRB!!
Commie Francis 9:37:17 AM
Oh no!!
Jon Solomon (host) 9:36:41 AM
Need to double-check but this dawned on me late in the game.
Commie Francis 9:38:09 AM
That is my favorite "edgy" Christmas song of all time
Maria T 9:38:37 AM
Oh man, this Fishbone song destroys me everytime
Jon Solomon (host) 9:38:11 AM
It is a true gem.
Commie Francis 9:38:53 AM
I can't believe there's only 8 hours and 20 minutes left
eliza rohr 9:39:12 AM
God, we are at that timetime where Killdozer/Minutemen are like about the same amount of time in the past as Zep, Stones, Beatles, Doors, etc. was back in the 90s (90s teen here)
Maria T 9:40:24 AM
Every time I hear the "you devil you" part I think they're about to sing WPRB's callsign, which of course would be a GREAT station ID to have
Carl Zimring 9:39:55 AM
More like Elvis and Chuck Berry in the 90s.
Adam Hart 9:41:02 AM
I'm looking at the track list for Hardcore Holidays and whoooooa
Brian D 9:41:39 AM
Snaildartha determines our whole morning schedule.
Joanna Hutchinson 9:41:31 AM

Dan Ruccia 9:41:52 AM
@maria now that's all I hear
Maria T 9:42:47 AM
Maria T 9:43:01 AM
does fishbone have a cameo? how can we make this happen
Jon Solomon (host) 9:43:03 AM
There IS a Fishbone song with WPRB's call sign in it! #trivia
Maura Johnston 9:44:01 AM
i wonder jon if there’s enough christmas music content to do a tribute to the q101 jamboree we attended. we’ve already got beck
Brian D 9:44:05 AM
This one makes both Hannukah show and the Marathon
Maria T 9:44:10 AM
OMG you're right, but now we need THIS version
MHR 9:43:44 AM
@eliza one of my best prb memories was having that realization with some summer djs whose first record purchase was nirvana. mine was pretenders
Season’s Greetings and Peaceful Salutations!!
MHR 9:44:20 AM
@jon I do recall that!
Maria T 9:45:03 AM
@eliza @mhr hey wait, that's kindasorta my generation
Commie Francis 9:44:50 AM
I can make the station ID or better pax can do it but yeah we should really get angelo moore to do it
Commie Francis 9:45:33 AM
Also what is the song with wprb's call sign in it??
MHR 9:45:42 AM
@maria yep
Jon Solomon (host) 9:45:49 AM
It might only be the video and I'd have to look it up.
Maria T 9:47:18 AM
@francis please be advised that i am ready to sing any and all WPRB spots, it is literally my favorite thing to do: https://soundcloud.com/thisismariat/8-16-2010-wprb-concert-promo
Commie Francis 9:46:49 AM
Commie Francis 9:46:59 AM
Commie Francis 9:47:18 AM
Maria T 9:47:58 AM
That's a good deal
Commie Francis 9:48:21 AM
For the same price you can hang with Mike Nesmith on zoom for half an hour but that's an insane deal. If anyone was looking for a last minute present for me.
MHR 9:48:44 AM
re fishbone it's that "these are the voices..." song, isn't it?
Jon Solomon (host) 9:49:04 AM
MHR 9:49:59 AM
it's sounding like an fsa xmas but that can't be true because I can hear the lyrics
Jon Solomon (host) 9:50:38 AM
This is a trio of songs a musician's mom requests EVERY YEAR and I am so glad she came back for 2020. Usually it is Xmas Eve.
Maria T 9:51:21 AM
didn't nate ruth do a theme song for the show, or am i making this up?
Jon Solomon (host) 9:51:00 AM
Close. Noah Vail!
Maria T 9:51:46 AM
eliza rohr 9:51:17 AM
@MHR I started listening to PRB when I was 13 bored out of my mind visiting my grandparents and dicking around with the radio dials. That was when Nirvana was huge
Brian D 9:52:17 AM
Maria T 9:52:47 AM
Sebastian Petsu 9:53:00 AM

Blaise Moritz 10:09:22 AM
What if Santa brings you alcohol? Can you drink it or is it a test for Christmas 2021? Straight edge Santa?
Commie Francis 10:09:29 AM
I cannot wait
eliza rohr 10:10:13 AM
Alright dragging my bluetooth to the kitchen for latke making (boxed not scratch)
Brian D 10:09:46 AM
Blaise, pivot... use it as a cleaning product around the house. There's that clean word again

Tea. Green and black (not at the same time). Some chai. Really helps keep the highs and lows less extreme.

Some carrot / ginger juice for a different jolt.

I saw the Sonics live in 2014 and they brought the house down. I kept thinking THESE GUYS ARE AS OLD AS MY PARENTS.
Space Cowboy 1:00:42 PM
@ jeff as old guys they were still good?
Jon Solomon (host) 1:01:03 PM
Jeff, did you hear that a band I recently became pals with has a member who is the son of a member of The Galaxies?!
Space Cowboy 1:01:30 PM
oh cool a story!
Larry MacGabhann 1:01:54 PM
Oh dear. Here's the WPRBXmas story that always makes me teary-eyed. No idea why. But this song gives me all the Christmas feels.
Larry MacGabhann 1:02:05 PM
Story, I meant story.
Space Cowboy 1:02:15 PM
i was just thinking i haven't heard any good stories yet this year
Jon Solomon (host) 1:02:54 PM
Unexpectedly, more songs than stories submitted as Stories this year and I haven't pulled from the past as much as I have in years gone by. Each show takes a life of its own.
Larry MacGabhann 1:03:26 PM
The sound editing on this story is ON POINT.
Space Cowboy 1:03:39 PM
its all fluid -
Richard from Rocky Hill 1:04:57 PM
I don't know if anyone has chat-posted this yet, but ... Ya just GOTTA check out the music video for Bob Rivers' "I Am Santa Claus"! And don't snack on Santa's cookies -- unless you're ready to REALLY go on tour ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMA-D9LLiuk
Jeff Jotz 1:05:03 PM
@Space Cowboy, the Sonics were loud and raucous...if I was alive in 1965 I guess that's what they sounded like
Space Cowboy 1:05:04 PM
@jeff sweet- nothing better than a rambunctious garage rockband
Jeff Jotz 1:05:56 PM
@Jon that is impressive. Does the son have any of his old man's records? Master tapes?
Jon Solomon (host) 1:08:07 PM
They didn't have a spare copy of Merry Christmas for me! I asked!
Jeff Jotz 1:08:35 PM
Jon, Vicky says hello but when she asks Alexa to play WPRB it plays some Asian radio station. Unless you have an entire set in Mandarin, I don't think that's the station's stream.
Jon Solomon (host) 1:10:16 PM
I think that's the HD2 stream, not HD1.
Space Cowboy 1:09:55 PM
eds gonna kick ass
Jon Solomon (host) 1:10:35 PM
But I have heard about this. Can you email me about it tomorrow (or after)?
Space Cowboy 1:12:38 PM
Larry MacGabhann 1:13:19 PM
I'm just realizing that petty larceny is a recurring theme across WPRBXmas stories...
Jon Solomon (host) 1:13:45 PM
First time I heard that one, I gasped.
Carl Zimring 1:14:01 PM
The writing is as precise as a Rolex.
Jon Solomon (host) 1:15:09 PM

You got this Jon. You're the only DJ that's made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs.

I had held out just fine for the overnight portion (as I regularly stay up until 5am like a dummy, anyhow), but now it's 12:30pm CST and papa needs a caffeine device.

On this, the one year anniversary of my now-husband proposing along to the sweet sounds of the marathon, I’d like to thank Jon Solomon (and mushrooms) for inspiring this whole marriage plot to begin with. 11/10, would marry again and again, all 365 days of the year. WE LOVE YOU JON SOLOMON.
Carlin 1:43:18 PM
Liz! Do you know what extensions had ya wrecked? P.S. (((HHHUUUGGGSSS)))
Carlin 1:44:04 PM
Frances, that is great!
Liz Bustamante 1:45:32 PM
Carlin, I don't. Because after trying one after the other and different combinations of them, I finally just opened an incognito window. I did want to marvel at how the lead singer of Say Sue Me sounds like Karen Carpenter!!!
Jon Solomon (host) 1:45:45 PM
Wow. Woah. OK. Thank you!
eliza rohr 1:45:30 PM
That Say Sue Me song also gave me Cowboy Junkies vibes
Jeff Jotz 1:47:02 PM
This is the Garden State content I tuned in for.
jimbeaux 1:46:45 PM
Yay Frances! And henceforth, all thanks to Jon in future for whatever reason must also include "(and mushrooms)"
eliza rohr 1:46:54 PM

Liz Bustamante 1:49:34 PM

eliza rohr 1:50:02 PM
It's different. We're dropping off presents to John's fam in a bit...
Carl Zimring 1:55:22 PM
NYC got up to 60 degrees overnight in the storm. My mom reports snow sticking in Michigan, so Midwestern weather is more in the season's spirit this year.
Jon Solomon (host) 1:56:20 PM
The park across the street from us is a BOG.
Dan Ruccia 1:56:41 PM
As is all of central North Carolina...
Jon Solomon (host) 1:58:50 PM
All that snow, gone. Boo.
eliza rohr 1:59:19 PM
It's like 20 degrees and sunny
eliza rohr 1:59:50 PM
was nearly 60 on Wed, IIRC
Liz Bustamante 2:03:06 PM
I know it's ridiculous to have a favorite Misfits Xmas tune, but this might be it for me.
Jon Solomon (host) 2:03:20 PM
I do love We Are 12/25!
DJ Tenderloin 2:05:54 PM
saw the misfits oct. 22 1982 at wilson center in DC. incredible. i'm old
Steven 2:07:03 PM
It rained all day in Asheville, so bad my back yard flooded, then, cold front andwe got 4" of snow! It's supposed to be 11 degrees tonight.
Jon Solomon (host) 2:07:31 PM
I do not know how we did not lose power overnight.
eliza rohr 2:07:48 PM
I remember Xmas Eve being like 75 five years ago in the NYC area

Bud Burroughs 2:17:35 PM
Crap, we tuned out for a bit and missed Jingle Rock Bell! Can you play it like 5 more times?
Carl Zimring 2:18:13 PM

Joshua Hensley 2:31:46 PM
I love the goth elements that come through in Joel's xmas songs
Jon Solomon (host) 2:33:38 PM
Yeah, it is a lot for me to listen to (in a good, overwhelming way).
Joshua Hensley 2:34:37 PM
how are you holding up, Boss?
Jon Solomon (host) 2:34:57 PM
Pretty good. The sun is going away but boy it is amazing to see light while broadcasting.
Jon Solomon (host) 2:35:27 PM
Some aspects of the marathon = much easier from home. A few things I still need to adapt. But this has been cool so far, minus the harrowing 10 hour storm.
Joshua Hensley 2:36:24 PM
it's been so nice for Emily and I to spend the day with you <3
Jon Solomon (host) 2:39:19 PM
Carlos Pedroni 2:38:52 PM
Just curious,,,how many times do you brush your teeth during the show?
Carl Zimring 2:39:57 PM
"Someday Soon" is quite a song for this year.
John and Tina 2:40:49 PM
How many websites do you have, Jon? I just googled a track and your site was the first hit
Jon Solomon (host) 2:41:03 PM
If I'm at WPRB, once. I do a "freshen up" midway through. But at home, not as much!
Jon Solomon (host) 2:41:27 PM
For the show there's keepingscoreathome.com and now for the Xmas show there's marathon.christmas.
John and Tina 2:42:07 PM
Jon I'm trying to find a track with Santa Baby and a sitar track in the background. I'm listened to it for years and googling comes up empty. Does that ring a bell with you?
John and Tina 2:42:27 PM
also marathon.christmas A++
Jon Solomon (host) 2:42:58 PM
Yeah, Larry did a great job. By 2021 I think it will do everything we want it to do. You should see the domains we didn't opt for!
Larry MacGabhann 2:43:33 PM
Sorry I was out with the dog! Thanks for the kind words! John & Jon! They mean a lot!
Larry MacGabhann 2:44:12 PM
I actually have a list of all the possible domains I ran by Jon if anyone's interested. I can post them!
John and Tina 2:46:02 PM
Larry MacGabhann 2:46:10 PM
This is funny I searched my PC for "Jon Solomon" and the first thing that came up was a recipe for a Spicy Peanut Butter Sandwich.
John and Tina 2:47:10 PM
I mean you need to post that recipe now, too
Jon Solomon (host) 2:47:33 PM
Really? I made that once! Was tasty!
Larry MacGabhann 2:47:07 PM
I think you're right, John. Strangely, I have a vivid memory of hearing Jon share that recipe on his show and thinking "I need to eat that."
Kevin M 2:49:12 PM
Since these songs usually come later in the show when I’m typically busy, I miss a lot of them. Man, these are beautiful.
Larry MacGabhann 2:49:16 PM
Alternate domain names for the marathon website. 5 groups. Group 1: MUSIC / RADIO. mixtape.christmas remixed.christmas sound.christmas soundslike.christmas suchsounds.christmas sweetsounds.christmas tunes.christmas
Daniel Cohen 2:50:20 PM
i always love this set but man this is hitting extra hard this year
Larry MacGabhann 2:49:45 PM
I'll wait a bit to share the next group. Don't want to spam the chat.
Carl Zimring 2:50:42 PM
This is an emotional B12 shot in a malnourished year.
John and Tina 2:51:20 PM
strong list, Larry!
Maria T 2:51:21 PM
@larry no jonsolomon.christmas
Maria T 2:51:26 PM
John and Tina 2:52:11 PM
my hard drive search for "sitar" is still running...
Larry MacGabhann 2:53:51 PM
Excellent ceist, Maria. There were several iterations of Jon's name in GROUP 3: JON STUFF!
Larry MacGabhann 2:54:09 PM
Including one of my favs: seltzer.christmas.
Larry MacGabhann 2:54:26 PM
Also, the recipe for Jon's Spicy Peanut Butter Sandwich is on the site now: http://marathon.christmas/misc/jon_solomons_spicy_peanut_butter_sandwich.pdf.
John and Tina 2:54:15 PM
thanks larry!@
John and Tina 2:54:58 PM
John and Tina 2:55:45 PM
I'll assume Larry is a programmer or engineer of some stripe
Larry MacGabhann 2:56:26 PM
TFR John. No problem. And yes, it is a bit embarrassing to admit but the recipe template I ginned up has a section for "iterative improvements". I am both very efficient and very, very lonely.
Carl Zimring 2:56:29 PM
May need to crowdsource lyrics for 2021 track seltzer.christmas.
Larry MacGabhann 2:57:56 PM
It's a long story but I transitioned to front-end development work two years ago. Prior to that I was an academic, which is just a very impressive way of saying "well read" and "poor."
John and Tina 2:58:13 PM
congrats! React?
Larry MacGabhann 2:59:04 PM
@Carl. Yes. This needs to happen.
Larry MacGabhann 3:00:28 PM
Lol! My JS skills are limping along. I try to stick to vanilla JS (for performance reasons) as much as possible but I've also been digesting Vue.js in small, easy-to-manage bites.
Jon Solomon (host) 3:01:03 PM
What about *my* JS Skills?
John and Tina 3:01:20 PM
I'm enjoying these websites a lot, guys
Maria T 3:02:00 PM
Jon, your JS skills are doing just fine
John and Tina 3:01:32 PM
also I found the sirta Santa Baby track!
Daniel Cohen 3:02:14 PM
vue is great, especially if you don't have the luxury of being able to start from scratch and/or don't need to use redux actions
Carlos Pedroni 3:02:30 PM

Larry MacGabhann 3:03:10 PM
Jon's JS skills are scary, scary good.
Liz Bustamante 3:03:11 PM
I just thought of one: youcallthis.christmas/
Carlos Pedroni 3:03:22 PM
One last personal question, how long are you awake for when you do the marathon?
Maria T 3:03:24 PM
@liz that's GOOD
Carlos Pedroni 3:03:45 PM
What time will you hit the sack this evening
Liz Bustamante 3:03:47 PM
Thanks, @Maria! I laughed.
Kristin Belz 3:03:36 PM
glad i tuned in for much of the JRLP. just stunning as usual.\
Larry MacGabhann 3:04:18 PM
Thank you for seconding Vue, Daniel. I had "reasons" for starting there but, if I'm being honest, it was also partly a "gut" choice. Always good to have your judgement calls seconded by someone more knowledgeable than yourself.
Jon Solomon (host) 3:05:02 PM
I would expect I'll be asleep by 8 pm ET or so. But I don't have to load out and I'm supposed to join my standing Friday night Zoom so who knows!
Jon Solomon (host) 3:05:45 PM
I'll likely fall asleep on the couch, as is tradition (and better than the bath tub).
Carlos Pedroni 3:05:58 PM
What time did you wake up on Thursday am ?
eliza rohr 3:05:26 PM
@Carl, you listen to Knowledge Fight? John's a wonk and they were doing seltzer rankings but they fizzled out, if you will..
Jon Solomon (host) 3:06:28 PM
I only need a normal night of sleep really so like 8 pm to 8 am or so and I'm good. Sweatpants and thai takeout tomorrow.
Carl Zimring 3:05:52 PM
Ha, no. But I should!
Carl Zimring 3:06:11 PM
I cannot imagine being up more than 24 hours AND THEN GETTING ON ZOOM.
Carlos Pedroni 3:07:05 PM
Thanks,,,it is appreciated by all
betsy grossman 3:06:39 PM
thai takeout tomorrow sounds delicious
Jon Solomon (host) 3:08:45 PM

Marisa Simon 3:37:05 PM
Interesting fact: At the beginning of the pandemic I fixed Marvin Rosen’s wife’s machine.
eliza rohr 3:36:53 PM

Kat Kat 3:38:54 PM
Making cookies and listening in, coming here to say that I’ve thought the same thing about Rudolph!!!!! Dam it was really days something about Santa’s character if he only accepts rudolph once he becomes valuable 🙄
John and Tina 3:39:38 PM

Larry MacGabhann 3:39:10 PM
I can recommend a very simple hack, Eliza!
Selecta Jerry 3:39:28 PM

Kevin M 3:41:12 PM
Haha! Thanks Maggie and Jon

Readie R. 3:48:16 PM
Bye Liz! Merry Merry!
Readie R. 3:48:34 PM
Sorry I missed ya!
Maria T 3:49:56 PM
I love when this comes on at my parent's house during a holiday meal and it makes them so mad
Beth McDonald 3:51:08 PM
I was convinced it was "No Christmas for donkeys" until I checked the playlist. A little disappointed
Ryan Godfrey 3:50:34 PM
Just wanted to formally check into this year's chat in case the marathon's server logs are ever donated to the Smithsonian or the Broadcasting Hall of Fame or something. Merry Christmas, everyone!
Carl Zimring 3:51:07 PM
Jen always hears that song as No Christmas for John Cage and I want that to be a thing.
Maria T 3:51:52 PM
@beth I will record that for next year's marathon
Maria T 3:52:03 PM
@carl I'll do that one as well
Maria T 3:52:31 PM
actually, everyone: give me your favorite misheard version of "no xmas for john quays" and i'll use for my version
Larry MacGabhann 3:52:06 PM
Jon my mother just said "He looks good. He doesn't look tired at all." This is high praise coming form an Irish woman.
Larry MacGabhann 3:52:15 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 3:52:57 PM
It is No Xmas For Junkies, right?
Carl Zimring 3:52:56 PM
Thank you Maria!
Jon Solomon (host) 3:53:54 PM
Joshua Hensley 3:53:25 PM

No Christmas for Joe Keyes
Maria T 3:54:19 PM
Joshua Hensley 3:53:48 PM

Carl Zimring 3:54:09 PM
Josh, you are assigned the Chomsky version.
Michael Schmelzer 3:55:04 PM
Yeah the name John Quays didn't just come outta nowhere.
Commie Francis 3:54:26 PM
Christmas is 100% for donkeys
Joshua Hensley 3:54:27 PM
Commie Francis 3:54:43 PM
If not for donkeys then for whom
Joshua Hensley 3:54:52 PM
Carl Zimring 3:55:59 PM
(Done in the style of Digital Underground)
Beth McDonald 3:56:47 PM
@Maria You are a true hero!
Kevin M 3:57:09 PM
Forgot to say...we were doing presents during Lindstrom and I had it coming from the iPad for a good ten minutes before my mom asked if she could put on a CD comp of christmas songs that Kohl's (yeah, the store) put out in 2000
Bernadette M Smith 3:57:23 PM
love the dancing
Carlin 3:57:59 PM
"Sorry, Mom - you know the rules - driver picks the tunes." "But we're not driv-" "DON'T MAKE ME PULL OVER."
Readie R. 3:59:39 PM
That was a beautiful yawn just now, Jon
Jon Solomon (host) 3:59:54 PM
Thank you both. I dance AND I yawn!
Carl Zimring 3:59:42 PM
This song and the Peel aircheck comp are my favorite parts of this set.
Michael Schmelzer 4:00:31 PM
Chris Mohr 4:00:33 PM
Thank you for The Fall set, Jon! As always
Carlin 3:59:57 PM
"No praises for yawn, please!" - M.E.S.
Readie R. 4:00:59 PM
Yawn Jawn
Kevin M 4:01:29 PM
@carlin it's got a weird children's choir version of feliz navidad she really likes. yeah, didn't get my music tastes from my parents
Chris Mohr 4:01:31 PM
The Fall is my favorite band. These are not my favorite Fall songs. But the Peel loop is brilliant!
Jon Solomon (host) 4:01:33 PM
I keep hoping others will answer the Fall Call in future marathons but I love what we've got.
Bernadette M Smith 4:00:55 PM
All in the family!!!! Join in!
Maria T 4:01:45 PM
Chris Mohr 4:02:08 PM
Also hi Kiswick and Mr. Mike
Bernadette M Smith 4:01:40 PM
Count down let's go!!!!!
Kevin M 4:03:10 PM
jon, challenge "maybe" accepted for next year. i'm good friends with one of the dudes in the manischefits
Kevin M 4:03:34 PM
we were gonna do a song for the marathon this year (not The Fall, but still) before covid threw a wrench in that
Chris Mohr 4:03:35 PM
Belatedly the Sabbath set was a wonder to behold.
Jannon Sonja Stein 4:03:48 PM
Carlin wins for best comment
Chris Mohr 4:04:20 PM
Thumbs up on the best comment!
Jannon Sonja Stein 4:04:59 PM
Although Ryan’s burn gets fingersnaps
Michael Schmelzer 4:05:11 PM
Larry MacGabhann 4:05:23 PM
RIP John Peel. Teenage dreams so hard to beat...
yoni from kdu 4:05:33 PM
The best!
Carl Zimring 4:04:59 PM
Find someone who looks at you the way John Peel looked at The Fall.
Jon Solomon (host) 4:06:01 PM
We like to do "The Fall, The Fall, The Mighty Fall..." at home for fun.
Jon Solomon (host) 4:06:09 PM
Especially when summer ends.
Michael Schmelzer 4:06:14 PM
hola Mode!
Dana Hartman 4:05:54 PM
The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall
Patrick Ganley 4:06:34 PM
“C’mon that’s The Fall”
Jon Solomon (host) 4:06:42 PM
John and Tina 4:06:48 PM
Dana Hartman 4:06:28 PM
The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall The Fall
Joshua Hensley 4:07:12 PM
Russ Smith 4:06:37 PM
I used to record "The All Fall Decline and Fall" which was a yearly Fall Marathon on WPRB
Michael Schmelzer 4:07:22 PM
Mode, and somehow this is best block of music played all year.
Chris Mohr 4:07:00 PM
"Benighted souls who don't like The Fall" 😂
Chris Mohr 4:07:28 PM
Russ, I used to do that show!
Jannon Sonja Stein 4:08:15 PM
Russ is officially a wprb hero
Kevin M 4:07:49 PM
Is there a YouTube video of John peel saying “the fall” for 10 hours on loop?
Maria T 4:08:35 PM
Related, I highly recommend the John Peel bot on twitter: @johnpeelbandbot
Jannon Sonja Stein 4:08:37 PM
Pls donate for digitization
Jon Solomon (host) 4:08:38 PM
I love how last night the chat was stacked with current / younger WPRB DJs and now it's an excellent mix of vets.
Chris Mohr 4:09:29 PM
I was lurking last night, Jon. This chat stuff is newfangled!
Larry MacGabhann 4:10:42 PM
@Kevin M If there isn't a YT vie of JP saying "The Fall" for 10 hours on a loop I will make sure Jon Solobot creates one.
Carlin 4:10:13 PM
Fall me once, shame on you...
Chris Mohr 4:11:04 PM
Fall me twice, won't stop til I get enough.
Michael Schmelzer 4:12:39 PM
A big part of the Fall's appeal to me is how they sound on something like Blue Christmas. It's like a pure musicality than transcends the underlying "songs"
Russ Smith 4:12:17 PM
DJ Carlos said to go see the Fall on his radio show around 1980 or so and I ended up seeing them about 20 times over the years.
Chris Mohr 4:12:54 PM
Do the Shields Brothers (Detention) still ever drop in? Well, pre-covid. They used to crash our staff holiday party
Michael Schmelzer 4:14:10 PM
The closest I came was having tickets to a show in Brooklyn just before he died. Sorry, everybody.
Chris Mohr 4:13:32 PM
Kudos, Dj Carlos
Jon Solomon (host) 4:14:24 PM
Kevin Shields calls my show regularly! Every couple of Wednesday I will hear from him. Well, not since March obviously...
Chris Mohr 4:14:04 PM
Cool to hear, Jon
Carl Zimring 4:14:09 PM
Switching the times of the jrlp and Fall sets makes this song particularly well-timed.
Jon Solomon (host) 4:15:15 PM
He's a character, enjoy our conversations. He knows when to let the DJ go!
Russ Smith 4:15:47 PM
Mark E. Smith used to wear a watch that did not run that was set for the the time the show started. Sometimes he had a second watch on that ran and had the current time.
Russ Smith 4:17:11 PM
They played Revival in Philly and did not start the show until 4:30 AM
Maria T 4:17:43 PM
That sounds about right, Russ
Jason Goldman 4:18:08 PM
Went to Shields Brothers gymnastics back in Hillsborough on 206. That's where I first heard about PRB, when Paul was saying they got played on that station.
Chris Mohr 4:19:13 PM
There are some YouTube videos of the Shiledses skateboarding at the gym
Commie Francis 4:19:33 PM
The first time I subbed for jon kevin shields called in IMMEDIATELY to poke fun at jon. And I was a little confused because he has the same name as the mbv guy.
Jason Goldman 4:19:47 PM
Was so sad when I saw it boarded up and long since used....only to google Shields Gymnastics and saw they had an even more amazing building in Flemington with parkour and all that.
Chris Mohr 4:20:23 PM
Correction: "Shieldses" in case the chat logs go to the Smithsonian
Michael Schmelzer 4:21:16 PM
I saw Fugazi at Maxwell's with the Shields Brothers.
Michael Schmelzer 4:21:53 PM
We may have taken a panel van.
Chris Mohr 4:21:46 PM
And you lived to tell the tale Mr. Mike
Factorial 4:22:08 PM
an hour and a half! there are still so many songs!
Jason Goldman 4:22:20 PM
This being 2020 and RIP Eddie V, they had us do "Eddie V's" when we jumped like Eddie V with both legs curled up to the side on the trampoline.
Chris Mohr 4:23:12 PM
"Dead Christmas carolers, they were out of controllers, played the marathon game but they couldn't maintain!"
Jason Goldman 4:23:18 PM
It was also the place I first heard the Beastie Boys, and we all made bets on if Quiet Riot would beat Journey in that Friday Night Video Fight thing that was on MTV at the time.
Jon Solomon (host) 4:24:38 PM
Tell me about it, Factorial! Scour old playlists for some favorites! Because I am!
Chris Mohr 4:24:17 PM
Jason, I'm so glad they were WPRB evangelists.
Factorial 4:24:31 PM
no more xmas for john quays!
Commie Francis 4:25:25 PM
So has anyone stayed up the whole marathon besides Jon?
Factorial 4:25:41 PM
sadly i am off my game this year
