Jon Solomon (host) 4:59:12 PM
Well, here we are. This show was recorded on Sunday and...yeah.
jimbeaux 5:08:39 PM
yep...and I thought I had turned off all my apocalyptic premonitions for a while
Jon Solomon (host) 5:10:15 PM
Glad to have you on board tonight, Jimbeaux. Now more than ever.
jimbeaux 5:10:42 PM
...and alkibar gignor brings the fire!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:12:01 PM
Yeah, I wish I could enjoy these songs a little more right now. I'm doing accounting to keep my mind off things. ACCOUNTING!
Brian D 5:12:44 PM
Hello Jon. Welcome back. This African music is great!
Steve Klischies 5:13:01 PM
(tosses handkerchief over accounting degree)
jimbeaux 5:12:34 PM
desperate times call for desperate double entry figure balancing...
Jon Solomon (host) 5:14:10 PM
Oh, chatters! It is so great to see you here. I'm lying on the floor!
Steve Klischies 5:14:25 PM
It would appear you've come undone.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:16:03 PM
It isn't great at Ice Station Solomon tonight.
Mark 5:17:32 PM
Maybe too soon for Louis CK radio humor mentions ? :)
Jon Solomon (host) 5:18:32 PM
I don't think any of us will ever hate Louis CK with the fire Andy Kindler does, so I deem it totally OK.
Mark 5:19:41 PM
Haha that’s fantastic answer / bad publicity for him € no publicity!
Mark 5:19:56 PM
Brian D 5:21:54 PM
Headphones w the stream audio and car radio audio simultaneously. Interesting. Not annoying
Jon Solomon (host) 5:22:28 PM
Could be quite interesting for this song in particular.
Brian D 5:22:47 PM
A half second or so off but on the beat
Mark 5:22:57 PM
Since ice station zebra is unattainable for most I’m grateful for the Solomon version / HNY after that great marathon!
Brian D 5:23:33 PM
The tap tap... holds it together.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:23:44 PM
Thanks, Mark. The Ice Station is basically back to pre-Xmas settings. Hope to get some more permanent gear for future live excursions.
Christine Duffy 5:27:55 PM
Hey DJ Jon! *waves* Happy New Year! It's great to hear you back on Thursday nights.
Christine Duffy 5:28:25 PM
Hey to all the fine people in the chat 👋
Mark 5:28:04 PM
Hi Christine check ur calendar tho ?!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:28:50 PM
Hey hey CD.
Mark 5:28:30 PM
I made same mistake on another show last week :)
Christine Duffy 5:29:35 PM
LOL! So true. Yep, that's about how today has been going.
Mark 5:29:44 PM
After today’s news stories not surprised u hope it’s already tomorrow:)
Mark 5:35:26 PM
Love the idea of listen to stream and radio / a tiny bit of time travel w the delay
Mark 5:35:54 PM
And makes 4 an interesting sound :)
Jon Solomon (host) 5:40:36 PM
Like singing in a round!
Brian D 5:47:38 PM
Again I say that Forsyth track was great. Built up nicely.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:43 PM
Yeah, incredible sound for a live track!
Brian D 5:48:22 PM
I did have to unplug headphones and of course not post here in order to drive
Jon Solomon (host) 5:49:57 PM
Appreciate it. Safety first.
jimbeaux 5:52:39 PM
Must admit i was PRB chatting while on my bicycle this fall. Not on road...on bike path.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:53:51 PM
Wow! I've done it while walking and did pull over once to add something to another DJ's chat...
jimbeaux 5:54:28 PM
New playlist does make it much safer to check later knowing there's a time correlation :)
Jon Solomon (host) 5:55:36 PM
Seriously. I heard something Krista played on my way to school yesterday I forgot to chime in about until right before her show ended but I am glad I remembered.
Christine Duffy 5:58:22 PM
Hey jimbeaux, Brian D & Mark, the time stamps on the playlist really do help.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:59:34 PM
Snag it, chat! - https://jacobcmckelvie.bandcamp.com/album/heres-what-you-do
Christine Duffy 5:59:47 PM
I have a running list of all the tracks that really wow me (and yes, there are a lot) from all the PRB shows.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:00:52 PM
Me too. One of my favorite records from 2020 I wouldn't have known about w/o Hanna playing it.
Christine Duffy 6:01:54 PM
I figure we all have our running lists, right? 📝 Thanks to DJ Hanna and all the DJs.
Mark 6:03:12 PM
Speaking of bike path and green space I’m going to the Philadelphia rail park on friday/ anyone else bike it or around it ? Didn’t i see u dj’d there jon?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:05:41 PM
I was at the rail park over a year ago for the free Joshua Abrams concert.
Mark 6:06:54 PM
Ha live concerts who remembers what those were like. I’ll be streaming as I’m on it
Jon Solomon (host) 6:07:31 PM
I watched it from the parking garage two stories up so actually it was fairly distanced (if it wasn't for all the other people doing the same thing).
Jon Solomon (host) 6:08:13 PM
Just had the one year anniversary of the last show I went to. Unreal.
Brian D 6:07:59 PM
PE in full effect
Mark 6:09:21 PM
Can’t wait until we’re even back to that level / end of Jan for my last indoor - I think Nick millevoi was part of the band :)
Jon Solomon (host) 6:09:24 PM
That certainly hits different then when I put the show together.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:09:43 PM
Nick emailed me today about a pizza place in South Jersey I am now very curious to try when this is all over.
Mark 6:10:51 PM
Great show so far / looking forward to next 2 hrs and then the sludge/ take care
Jon Solomon (host) 6:11:20 PM
Thanks, Mark. Please stay well.
Brian D 6:13:06 PM
PE was great "Walking in place workout" music. Gotta get the steps, kicks and marches in after work
Brian D 6:13:27 PM
And during work sometimes thanks to the stand up desk.
Steve Klischies 6:14:24 PM
As a south Jersey resident and pizza fan, do you mind sharing the name of the recommended place?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:08 PM
Nice. I was mostly matching up checks on the floor, but I did get a (way windy) 1.5 mile walk in with my wife after lunch.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:14 PM
Steve, let me look it up!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:19 PM
Steve Klischies 6:14:45 PM
Steve Klischies 6:14:54 PM
Out of the backdoor of Farm & Fisherman, ha
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:40 PM
He said it was great, but also trying to keep it on the DL so his spot doesn't get overrun with Pizza Yahoos.
Brian D 6:15:05 PM
I have been trying to up my homemade pizza game
Steve Klischies 6:15:17 PM
I've heard good things from people I trust, haven't taken the time to check it out quite yet
Steve Klischies 6:15:30 PM
Mum's the word
Brian D 6:15:50 PM
I would be better if I could get into the whole feeding the batch eternal continuous dough making thing.
Steve Klischies 6:16:44 PM
I haven't gotten to that point yet. I do like to get a nice 4-5 day rise going in the fridge, though. I have the ability to sit and let time pass down pat.
Brian D 6:16:48 PM
But I can do a quick-ish pie enough to satisfy the ever growing hunger for pizza
Jon Solomon (host) 6:17:41 PM
Brian, have we talked homemade pizza in the chat before? Once we started doing the Beddia dough recipe, everything else came together.
Steve Klischies 6:17:11 PM
And thank you, Jon.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:17:57 PM
It takes 2-3 days but it really is "restaurant quality."
Brian D 6:17:41 PM
Yes Steve. That is about my speed. If I could oil up some and keep them in the fridge a week I would be great
Brian D 6:17:55 PM
Thanks for the tip Jon! I will look that Beddia up
Jon Solomon (host) 6:19:19 PM
Here's the recipe. The cookbook is quite good but we mostly just use the dough and figure out the rest on our own - https://www.inquirer.com/food/craig-laban/philly-chefs-recipes-pizza-cookbooks-home-cooking-family-kitchen-laban-20200320.html
Brian D 6:18:54 PM
I was watching some good videos on YT from Adam Ragusea
Brian D 6:20:33 PM
Great! Copied and put in the recipe files!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:23:15 PM
Excellent. Let us know how it goes.
Iris Ushizima Sabino 6:31:10 PM
come for the tunes stay for the kitchen tips
Jon Solomon (host) 6:34:20 PM
That's the WPRB way.
Iris Ushizima Sabino 6:36:23 PM
that setup is what my uncles would call "rustic"
Jon Solomon (host) 6:37:22 PM
The box has since been put in the recycling.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:37:48 PM
I since got my mic clip back from the kind folks who lent me all my Xmas marathon gear.
Iris Ushizima Sabino 6:41:23 PM
ah good :)
Jon Solomon (host) 6:45:07 PM
I know I said this up top but tonight I am very appreciative for this listener chat. It is nice to have somewhere virtual to gather on this terrible day.
Iris Ushizima Sabino 6:47:17 PM
agreed. nowhere better to escape than music & community
Jon Solomon (host) 6:48:40 PM
Yeah, I would have done a very different playlist if I could have a second try at this but this song is soothing.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:50:51 PM
Checking in on some DC friends now. A pal who works at the Library of Congress said the whole building was locked down. She's home today but a bunch of pals were still inside last I heard.
Iris Ushizima Sabino 6:54:34 PM
that must be terrifying
Jon Solomon (host) 6:55:15 PM
Can't even imagine.
Brian D 6:56:13 PM
Beautiful. Sounds Malian
Jon Solomon (host) 6:57:20 PM
This is another one from the monthly Saharan WhatsApp EP series. If you missed any, I can provide with pleasure.
Brian D 6:57:07 PM
I gotta get on that Saharan WhatsApp apparently. I eat this stuff up
Brian D 6:57:28 PM
That's right you played some earlier from one of these comps
Jon Solomon (host) 6:59:18 PM
Yeah. Each month's comp was replaced by the following month's comp so I think only November is up at present but I have them all.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:59:52 PM
Here's the most recent one - https://oyiwane.bandcamp.com/album/music-from-saharan-whatsapp-11
Brian D 7:02:16 PM
jimbeaux 7:12:43 PM
This is nasty. GOOD nasty.
Christine Duffy 7:16:39 PM
Oh, this is good. Jon, your show and tonight's chat is a definite bright spot today, and I am here for it.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:58 PM
Thanks, CD. This entire Rebecca Musson record is really compelling.
Mark 7:24:57 PM
One last marathon note before it fades too far in the past: hearing lidstrom for the 1st time w no idea how it was going to unfold was a near transcendental experience / it was a beyond amazing communal event !
Jon Solomon (host) 7:26:17 PM
Oh wow. That's incredible Mark. Someone told me there's a remix version that is "only" 16 minutes long I need to hear.
Mark 7:27:32 PM
Haha no the 40+ version I’m sure all listeners would agree is their favorite:)
Jon Solomon (host) 7:28:24 PM
100%. I just want to know more about this remix!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:56:31 PM
Well, this show was a profoundly weird shared experience tonight. Thanks for joining me and may things be markedly different (in a good way) next Wednesday evening!
jimbeaux 7:57:26 PM
Thank you Jon...great show!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:58:23 PM
Be well, Jimbeaux! Was that you who commented about my hike yesterday on Instagram? Only now realized it might be one and the same!
Brian D 7:58:24 PM
Thanks Jon! Good tunes indeed. I can't wait to seek out the Saharan Whats App mixes
