Thanks for the tribute / he was one of the true OG RIP sylvain :( :(
jimbeaux 11:13:05 PM
agree mark, luv the live tracks!
Jen (host) 11:13:59 PM
You got it! More of my shows should really start with New York Dolls.
jimbeaux 11:14:47 PM
could be your theme song/band!
Mark 11:15:01 PM
And I agree about the live tracks / the absolute pioneers
Mark 11:23:40 PM
Indeed thru his music he lives on ...
Bo 11:36:07 PM
Hello Jen!
Bo 11:36:37 PM
Saints, NICE! :)
Colin McDonnell 11:37:17 PM
Back in the early aughts my band opened for a version of the NYD at an amateur wrestling arena in South Philly.
Colin McDonnell 11:38:55 PM
I didn't personally interact with Sylvain, but my singer wanted a photo with Johansen and he was very not into it. I held the camera and captured all the annoyance. A prized photo.
Mark 11:44:55 PM
@colyn I can picture that encounter:) sounds like a great photo
Mark 11:46:47 PM
And that astute palette is fantastic! I had the same thought of it going on for another 20 !!
Jen (host) 11:49:17 PM
Love all this commentary! Sorry, was sitting here laughing to myself about this set and the hugeness of today. Astute Palate = so good, right??
Colin McDonnell 11:50:30 PM
I have big plans to sink my teeth deeper into Astute Palate.
Jen (host) 11:52:50 PM
Likewise
Mark 11:56:08 PM
Hopefully u werenโ€™t talking to yourself at this late hour :) youโ€™ve really kept the momentum going on this great music and chat day on the worlds greatest radio station !

Jen (host) 12:51:48 AM
Hey thanks, Mark! Catch you next time!
whiteuncle 12:52:04 AM
just wanted to share an almost dolls memory before you go, jen...they headlining for black joe lewis and the honeybears back around 2009, which for me is about as a great a lineup can get for the troc in philly...or, anywhere really. but after black joe was done and we were waiting for the dolls, like cathoic school boys might i mention, i got kicked out...on a technicality!!!...but i was wearing a new york dolls t-shirt. so, at the very least, they saved me from being that guy.
whiteuncle 12:52:56 AM
still never got to see 'em. but thanks so much for honoring sylvain sylvain's memory, jen. great show. you rock.
Jen (host) 12:53:20 AM
Whiteuncle, I love this story! Getting thrown out of New York Dolls - perfect.
Jen (host) 12:53:47 AM
Thank you, sir! Iโ€™m glad youโ€™ve liked it!
whiteuncle 12:54:49 AM
cheers...until next time.
Jen (host) 12:55:58 AM
Goodnight!
Colin McDonnell 12:56:00 AM
One quality of Running Red lights is lots of sick guitar! Rock on!
Jen (host) 12:56:35 AM
Hahah more next time!
Colin McDonnell 12:57:14 AM
lol cheers!
whiteuncle 1:00:12 AM
when i first tuneed in you were playing the dolls, and i thought it was the black lips. couldn't've gone wrong either way. chunky, raw, lo-fi guitar and noise. two of my favorites...night, jen. thanks.
