Mike Lupica (host) 8:04:18 PM
S'up gang! Welcome back to the show that (seemingly) never ends.
That’s an awesome set up! #Jealous
Space Cowboy 8:05:35 PM
sweet jam
Mike Lupica (host) 8:05:45 PM
Ahh, shit, meant to turn that off.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:07:10 PM
Aaaand, for those of you who just had to peer into my face, you may have figured out that I don't know how to do that.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:07:32 PM
So ignore the YouTube chat and keep things centered here, if ya would!
Space Cowboy 8:08:26 PM
sure no prob
Christine Duffy 8:10:59 PM
Hey DJ Mike *waves* What's with the live webcam tonight in the Doom Pantry?
Space Cowboy 8:11:29 PM
oh im likin the vibe of this show
Christine Duffy 8:12:08 PM
Hello, fine people in the chat 👋
Space Cowboy 8:12:14 PM
can we simply subtitle this - freeform pathogen - mellow candle edition
Mike Lupica (host) 8:11:45 PM
Hey Christine! Just another one of my bad ideas. Don't get used to it, just figured it was time to rip away the mystique of Ye Olde Doomsdaye Pantry.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:12:40 PM
Also, if you suddenly hear me playing a nordic metal cover of "Here Come the Warm Jets", that means my home internet is overloaded so please let me know here so that I can kill the webcam. Radio ALWAYS comes first.
Christine Duffy 8:13:40 PM
Okie dokie!
Space Cowboy 8:14:47 PM
nope cant see it -
Mike Lupica (host) 8:15:07 PM
Yeah, I thought that was the case. Lemme try without the plastic. Maybe less glare?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 8:15:46 PM
I like those plastic LP protectors!
Christine Duffy 8:15:24 PM
jimbeaux 8:15:44 PM
Oooh, saw the webcam...it's cozy in the sonic sausage factory!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:15:55 PM
Hahaha, Dave. Decomposing LP sleeves are the enemy of anyone with allergies.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:16:02 PM
Hey Jimbeaux!
Needs light source on items in front of camera

Space Cowboy 8:19:59 PM

Pseu Braun 8:19:34 PM
Space Cowboy 8:21:18 PM
ummm yes yes yes -
Space Cowboy 8:21:56 PM

Space Cowboy 8:22:51 PM
ohh this is the stuff
Mike Lupica (host) 8:23:14 PM
Yeah, I never frug on camera.
Christine Duffy 8:24:23 PM
Good policy.
Pseu Braun 8:24:46 PM
Space Cowboy 8:25:44 PM
i do see some head nodding - that will be an implied frug
Christine Duffy 8:27:04 PM
I know there's a lot going on: don't drink the candle.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:27:26 PM
Haha, I see you are a regular here.
Space Cowboy 8:28:13 PM
yeah especially on camera
Space Cowboy 8:29:36 PM
oh good a special guest
Space Cowboy 8:29:48 PM
there for some spoken word no doubt
Space Cowboy 8:30:51 PM
soooooo that was the perfect set
Pseu Braun 8:31:19 PM
Space Cowboy 8:33:13 PM
so what does rowan want to hear does she get to request
Christine Duffy 8:33:38 PM
Good question, Space Cowboy.
Christine Duffy 8:35:58 PM

Space Cowboy 8:40:49 PM
a nice murderous year toast
the most angry looking fish needs to be named MrMalcontent. Like the dietary biscuits.
That was a fun moment in Radio History! #DJ•Daughter!
Christine Duffy 8:46:35 PM
Very cool, DJ Mike. I don't know how you do all this simultaneously.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:48:37 PM
In the next set, I will do all of the above while dangling over a pool of lava and playing a tiny saxophone. (I think I made this same joke last week.)
Christine Duffy 8:49:36 PM
That's just showing off. 😄
Mike Lupica (host) 8:52:51 PM
MrM, the kid did a full radio show with me about 1.5 years ago. She goes deep with the Bowie picks, and also likes cooler PJ Harvey songs than I do. She also thought Pax was super cool.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:53:18 PM
I mean, not like she's wrong.
DJ MikeLupica, that is awesome! 😎 Don’t send that one to boarding school after all!! 🤪
Pseu Braun 8:55:58 PM
was a pleasure hearing from the youngin'
Mike Lupica (host) 8:57:14 PM
Thanks Pseu. I think she's simultaneously impressed and weirded out by the fact that there's a radio station in her garage now. Somethin' to tell her friends when(ever) she gets back to school.
Can we get DJ•Daughter to pick out Bowie and PJ Harvey tracks for tonight?? Huh!?! Yeah?!?
Mike Lupica (host) 9:00:46 PM
She's got me committed to doing a full show together at some point in the future. All in good time...
I hope she’ll get a chair and a beverage.
Christine Duffy 9:02:20 PM
Oh, this track is fun.
Pseu Braun 9:02:31 PM
hey, there's probably much worse shit at the neighbor's house
That was a very enjoyable first hour of nice tunes! Thanks, DJ MikeLupica!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:03:09 PM
Excellent point, Pseu.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:03:15 PM
Thanks MrM!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:04:45 PM
Just popped out of frame to light another stick of the incense that smells like a Catholic mass.
jimbeaux 9:05:16 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 9:05:43 PM
For realz, Jimbeaux. She ROOLZ.
Christine Duffy 9:06:00 PM
Baby's on 🔥
Christine Duffy 9:07:14 PM
If it reminds you of Mass, it could be frankincense.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:08:27 PM
Dunno if you could see that, but you are correct!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:10:33 PM
Yep! But just prior to that I flashed the frankincense incense box, to Christine's theory.
Yes, saw that too! Need 3 more seconds at the camera for things to get enough time for focus. 👍
Christine Duffy 9:13:57 PM
I've been over-frankinsenced in Catholic masses of my youth, so I remember it well.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:16:06 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 9:16:41 PM
Thanks for the tech tip, Malc! I shall try to steady the hands for a few moments more next time.
jimbeaux 9:21:34 PM
Over-myrrhed, too, i bet!
Space Cowboy 9:22:14 PM
i thought thsi show had a frankincense vibe to it
Mike Lupica (host) 9:21:39 PM
Actually, wait -- I misspoke! It's the "Red Dragon" flavor that smells like a Catholic mass. The frankincense one be all like Nat King Cole.
Space Cowboy 9:22:22 PM
and i was right
Space Cowboy 9:25:11 PM
punk rock yard cut - risky but worth it
DJ MikeLupica, you’re great in every way! I’m dazzled at everything that goes into making radio at home! Well done, Sir! Thanks for the behind the scenes adventure!
Space Cowboy 9:30:49 PM
sweet ----
Space Cowboy 9:31:32 PM
oh this is a good one
jimbeaux 9:31:38 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 9:33:03 PM
Ahhh hahaha!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:33:32 PM
This is a really good song to play in the bottom of a 5000 gallon steel tank.
Jon Solomon 9:35:37 PM
Video embed in the playlist = good idea!!
anyone else see Conductor MikeLupica??
Mike Lupica (host) 9:36:16 PM
Hey Jon! Why are you awake? 25 hours on the radio would KILL me.
DJ JonSolomon, you should still be asleep!!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:36:27 PM
Jon Solomon 9:37:18 PM
Christmas was like three days ago!
I’d still be asleep until the new year.
Space Cowboy 9:37:59 PM
this song goes well with incense
🎶 this pretty 🎼
Space Cowboy 9:44:26 PM
not to be a pill -but isnt that one candle close to the wprb poster?
Mike Lupica (host) 9:45:04 PM
I’m pretending they are all battery operated.
Space Cowboy 9:45:11 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 9:45:15 PM
Just moved it back a few inches. Thanks!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:49:00 PM
Juice in the video streaming laptop is down to 39%. Not sure if it's gonna make it 'til 11. Nailbiter!
Alia Palumbo 9:52:35 PM
BeeGee doc is on hbomax
Mike Lupica (host) 9:53:12 PM
Yeah, I'm capped at three streaming services (which is two too many, according to my annoying values), so gonna have to wait before I catch that one, I guess!
Alia Palumbo 9:54:51 PM
Hear ya -luckily I have someone who I can use their account.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:55:22 PM
A good friend to have!
Alia Palumbo 9:56:08 PM
PS. I’m late to incense convo... was in car when it was going but I’m sandlewood or patchouli all the way
And it’s Scents not Flavors!! Don’t eat the incense!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:58:09 PM
Space Cowboy 9:58:20 PM
adios me sleep now- good show
Alia Palumbo 9:59:13 PM
The delay between radio and video is like a bad dubbed movie pretty funny.
Two amazing band names in a row!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:58:47 PM
See ya Space Cowboy!
Cheers, Space Cowboy!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:59:15 PM
Alia, all of this actually happened six weeks ago.
Alia Palumbo 10:00:22 PM

Mike Lupica (host) 10:24:44 PM
Thanks Alia! Just checked the video streaming laptop. Battery is at 17%. Probably gonna die before 11, so if there's anything you ever wanted to ask me to do on camera, now's the time.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:24:56 PM
Agree, malc. Kingly.
Christine Duffy 10:25:45 PM
I never heard them do this cover. Awesome
Mike Lupica (host) 10:25:43 PM
Their covers are godhead.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:27:05 PM
Fire Marshal Space Cowboy and I would like to see you blow... out those candles. HaHA. Seriously.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:28:58 PM
You're gonna have to go with me kissing the John Cale LP. Candles get blown out at 11.
Christine Duffy 10:30:13 PM
THAT's what that was! Okay.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:30:08 PM
Roll call of all the shit that made me cry in 2020 before 11.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 10:30:58 PM

Mike Lupica (host) 10:30:24 PM
This song's been makin' me weepy for years.
Christine Duffy 10:31:19 PM

Good plan, Colin. It was at 100% when I started, but I guess streaming sucks up a lot of CPU power.
