Dana K (host) 8:03:10 PM
chat is OPEN. hello.
Dana K (host) 8:03:36 PM
happy early birthday to me, the DJ, who hurtles ever further into her 30s tomorrow
Evan Haley 8:04:07 PM
Hi Dana, Happy Birthday! I'm doing my listening hours for WPRB's DJ training, nice to join you tonight :)
Dana K (host) 8:05:02 PM
thank you! that's awesome - welcome aboard! if you have any questions feel free to ask! (though i'm pretty new to live broadcasting from home)
Mark 8:05:30 PM
Esoterica played great game theory version of this last week!
Taber 8:05:41 PM
Hi Dana, Happy Birthday!!
Dana K (host) 8:05:53 PM
thanks Ryan!
Dana K (host) 8:06:06 PM
Esoterica and I must be on the same wavelength. I've got Game Theory cued up for later.
Mark 8:07:07 PM
I always say canโ€™t believe how late I am to the game theory party :)
Rob from Maryland 8:08:16 PM
Happy birthday!
Rob from Maryland 8:08:44 PM
And your voice sounds perfect, no glitches like last week
Mark 8:08:46 PM
HB / play all ur faves !
Mark 8:09:03 PM
Hahaha
Krista 8:09:09 PM
Brian eno has a weird number of songs about needles
yoni from kdu 8:09:21 PM
As can be expected from someone turning 51
Lizbot 8:09:31 PM
Happy Birthday!!!!! ๐ŸŽ
Krista 8:09:53 PM
Oh and happy birthday!
Mark 8:10:13 PM
Enophile cover band maybe ?
Lizbot 8:10:39 PM
@Krista- Eno has a lot of songs about boats too. We should compile data of Enoโ€™s most frequent subjects and words
Dana K (host) 8:11:13 PM
Ahh I'm so glad my mic sounds good. Thanks everyone!!
Lizbot 8:11:27 PM
Sounds really good!
Lizbot 8:11:38 PM
Everything is ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Dana K (host) 8:12:08 PM
Third time's the charm!
Mark 8:12:36 PM
Dana should have been born in 60s / you would loved late 70s kid / instead a millennial:)
Lizbot 8:12:57 PM
I think WPRB needs to refine the music library by subject matter. Eno is filed under โ€œBoats โ€˜nโ€™ Needlesโ€
Mark 8:14:10 PM
@lizbot : mother whale eyeless, big ship , hmmm gotta keep thinking
Dana K (host) 8:15:59 PM
i feel like there's boats in "Backwater"
Mark 8:17:32 PM
That one works too !
Dana K (host) 8:21:41 PM
where's my prawn? yoni?
Dana K (host) 8:22:15 PM
๐Ÿฆ
Krista 8:22:30 PM
I agree, Lizbot.
Krista 8:25:04 PM
Mountain of needles, calcium needles
yoni from kdu 8:25:52 PM
Oi yes what
Rob from Maryland 8:26:05 PM
@DanaK: https://secondhandsongs.com/performance/119158 lists cover versions of Eno's Needles. Two were released before c. 2004: One by Suicide Romeo and the other by Volcano Suns
Christine Duffy 8:26:48 PM
Hey Dana K, Happy Birthday! ๐ŸŽ‚
Dana K (host) 8:26:55 PM
it wasn't either of those - it was an obscure local band i believe. i'd have to search through the old playlists again.
Dana K (host) 8:27:02 PM
thank you christine!
yoni from kdu 8:27:11 PM
A search for "brian eno" "prawn" turned up these results: "authentic prawn pad thai recipe ... Aldi Dopiaza Curry Sauce, Endocrine System Hormones, Brian Eno - Thursday Afternoon, Bad Adjectives In Spanish, She's ..."
yoni from kdu 8:27:18 PM
Checks out
Dana K (host) 8:27:55 PM
thank you yoni
yoni from kdu 8:28:08 PM
Happy to help with the crossover content
Christine Duffy 8:28:12 PM
Hey, chat peeps. ๐Ÿ‘‹ DJ Liz Bot, your show was great and full of gems. I was driving and couldn't pip into the chat.
yoni from kdu 8:29:00 PM
Was hoping there was a song about 'em. Or maybe a recipe. "Eno's Prawn Cocktail" sounds like a great name for a mixtape.
Dana K (host) 8:30:02 PM
Eno's Prawn Cocktail put the poker in the fire, it will come, it will come, it will surely come
yoni from kdu 8:31:46 PM
Nailed it.
Lizbot 8:36:29 PM
Hi Christine! Was opening mail (Bernie-style) and couldnโ€™t check chat last 10 minutes, but thanks!
Lizbot 8:38:27 PM
Here come the prawns - an Eno/Robyn Hitchcock Collaboration ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿฆ
Christine Duffy 8:38:28 PM
@Lizbot, did you have your handmade mittens on? ๐Ÿ˜„
Lizbot 8:38:45 PM
@Christine- I wish! I have one sad glove
Lizbot 8:39:43 PM
Mountains of Needles in a Camelโ€™s Calcium
Rob from Maryland 8:41:05 PM
I love this Freshies song
Dana K (host) 8:41:15 PM
in an alternate universe this might be my theme song
Teresa Peacock 8:41:39 PM
Happiest Birthday, Dana!!!๐Ÿ’๐Ÿท๐Ÿง๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ "On January 21, 1990, the Croydon, England space rock band Loop recorded a 3 song session with BBC DJ John Peel. The session took place one day before the release of the bands third full-length LP A Gilded Eternity. Loop played two new tracks from the record and the track 'Sunburst', which was the b-side to the Arc-Lite 12โ€ณ released the previous year." https://youtu.be/GfDxvn1_HzE
Dana K (host) 8:42:24 PM
Ooooh!
Dana K (host) 8:42:41 PM
My birthday is technically tomorrow, I share it with Malcolm McLaren.
Dana K (host) 8:42:53 PM
And thank you!
Lizbot 8:43:59 PM
The jigโ€™s up! I was told Dana was a 51 year-old!
Dana K (host) 8:45:50 PM
I've been told I am an honorary Gen X-er. Perhaps even older than a Gen X-er.
Mark 8:47:09 PM
Haha about the age / your music faves arenโ€™t millennial typical :)
Dana K (host) 8:49:14 PM
It's true. But I've found my people at WPRB, where we're all detached from time!
Mark 8:49:36 PM
Malcolm mclaren was a sh** His partner vivien Westbrook was magnificent woman & brains if the operation
Chris Mohr 8:50:29 PM
Semi-longtime listener, first time chat-ter. Is it too late to say something about oenophile Enophiles?
Christine Duffy 8:50:48 PM
And we love all you WPRB people who are detached from time!
Mark 8:52:33 PM
*weatwood / she was behind the clothing designs of the punk era
Krista 8:52:33 PM
Never too late, Chris
Dana K (host) 8:52:35 PM
@Chris it's never too late. thanks and welcome!
Chris Mohr 8:53:11 PM
Thanks! Also, do you have Crass's "Do They Owe Us a Living?" Seems timely...
Dana K (host) 8:53:25 PM
I can definitely cue it up!
Chris Mohr 8:55:25 PM
Cool! Also I'm so old I played Dukes of Stratosphear on WPRB when it was new
Dana K (host) 8:56:05 PM
that's great! then we've played the same record, 30 years apart!
Chris Mohr 8:57:13 PM
:)
Chris Mohr 8:58:20 PM
When it was new we were pretty sure it was XTC but it wasn't immediately confirmed, so it had an air of mystery to it
Dana K (host) 8:59:01 PM
PS: I can't play Crass until 10pm - too many naughty words
yoni from kdu 8:59:20 PM
Oh yeah. That's the stuff.
Mark 8:59:40 PM
Play maybe one folk song; still remember that special in studio folk show u did :)
Teresa Peacock 9:00:08 PM
So actually you were born on a Monday! That's great too! I've got something planned for your FB page tomorrow...๐Ÿ™‚
Dana K (host) 9:00:17 PM
Hard to forget it, it was my last show in the studio!
Dana K (host) 9:00:35 PM
Ah, you're too sweet, Teresa!
Chris Mohr 9:01:01 PM
Understood re Crass. I thought about looking up the lyrics first but got lazy
yoni from kdu 9:02:25 PM
If only you could play the Kidz Bop version!
Chris Mohr 9:03:52 PM
OMG Rote Kapelle! Thought they sounded familiar.. i have one single by them, Fire Escape
Chris Mohr 9:07:09 PM
Don't Back the Covid!
Dana K (host) 9:07:42 PM
I love that single too!
CMDR Poopypants 9:11:18 PM
Holy cow! Subway Sect. No reason to go out on Thursday night anymore. This show tonight is my HS and College soundtrack. LOL
Dana K (host) 9:12:17 PM
i'm so glad to hear it, commander!
Christine Duffy 9:12:19 PM
Thanks for the Naked Raygun. Classic.
Chris Mohr 9:12:25 PM
Whoa-ho-ho!
yoni from kdu 9:12:28 PM
Y'all best be whoa-ing along!
Christine Duffy 9:12:49 PM
Whoa along at home! ๐Ÿ“ป
Dana K (host) 9:13:04 PM
Please whoa-ho safely
CMDR Poopypants 9:13:09 PM
I'm pretty sure I saw Naked Raygun at City Gardens
Chris Mohr 9:13:09 PM
Spellcheck is murder on the whoa's though
Dana K (host) 9:14:16 PM
madman ---> ๐Ÿข
Mark 9:15:14 PM
So now we know your favorite songs / whatโ€™s the favorite aquarious crystal / gemstone ...
CMDR Poopypants 9:15:51 PM
Faith Healers? wow
Dana K (host) 9:15:56 PM
this faith healers song is special to me because i think it was one of the very first songs i ever played on WPRB?
Mark 9:16:16 PM
And is alcohol allowed at this birthday chat ?
Dana K (host) 9:16:17 PM
i'm not much into crystals...i do wear a smoky quartz necklace though
CMDR Poopypants 9:17:11 PM
Special to me too becuase the week I moved to NYCthis was one of the only CD's I had and I played it over and over in my tiny studio apt trying to figure out how to get to Hoboken on the Path becuase they still had an ATM where I could take out my l;ast five dollars before pay day. Good times
Mark 9:17:27 PM
Haha itโ€™s alll about crystals these days :)
Dana K (host) 9:17:46 PM
โค๏ธ!
Dana K (host) 9:18:43 PM
as for alcohol, not sure if it's verboten or not for me to discuss drinking over the air...but you listeners are allowed to get up to whatever you want
CMDR Poopypants 9:18:46 PM
The worlds last $5 ATM in 1992 was in Hoboken right by the train station.
Mark 9:19:55 PM
Ha fcc & station rules but it is ur birthday (week)
Krista 9:19:58 PM
@cmdr there was one on park and franklin in minneapolis in 2005
CMDR Poopypants 9:24:35 PM
wow 2005??? Thats awesome
yoni from kdu 9:28:34 PM
The best!
Dana K (host) 9:29:48 PM
i am singing along
Dana K (host) 9:29:55 PM
let me make sure my mic is off
yoni from kdu 9:32:07 PM
Another perfect track. I mean, it's no "Cheesecake Truck" but ...
Dana K (host) 9:45:58 PM
the complete sarcastic vitriol with which this irishman sings "aren't you glad you were born in england? aren't you glad you were born an angel?"
yoni from kdu 9:55:10 PM
This is great!
yoni from kdu 9:55:51 PM
Suburbs are a Minneapolis band? I assume? We do love Minneapolis in 1981.
Dana K (host) 9:56:01 PM
Yes. Excellent double LP called Credit In Heaven
Dana K (host) 9:56:12 PM
That was their most gentle moment
yoni from kdu 9:56:18 PM
Double LP in 1981! On Twin/Tone! That's wild.
Dana K (host) 9:56:49 PM
see? i told you you'd learn something if you kept hanging out with me
yoni from kdu 9:57:28 PM
"The label was headquartered at 2541 Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis, which had previously been home to Kay Bank Studios, where garage-rock hits such as the Castaways' "Liar, Liar" and the Trashmen's "Surfin' Bird" had been recorded in the 1960s. For a time, Hรผsker Dรผ had an office space next door to Twin/Tone at 2539. Hรผsker Dรผ's Grant Hart would later name his first solo work, 2541, after the location." Thank you Wikipedia
yoni from kdu 9:59:28 PM
Surfin' Cow > Surfin' Bird > Surfjan Stevens
Dana K (host) 10:03:00 PM
Surfjan Stevens? Thanks I hate it
Christine Duffy 10:03:38 PM
Any song that mentions parthenogenesis is aiight with me. Go Shreikback!
Dana K (host) 10:03:56 PM
i love these lyrics so much
Christine Duffy 10:05:00 PM
This whole album is etched into my brain; loved it from its release.
Dana K (host) 10:07:33 PM
Shriekback? Or Devo?
Christine Duffy 10:08:10 PM
Shreikback's Oil and Gold.
Dana K (host) 10:08:30 PM
ah! yes, it's great!
yoni from kdu 10:18:38 PM
This has that great groove!
jimbeaux 10:19:01 PM
Happy burfday 2 morrow DANA K!
Dana K (host) 10:19:19 PM
thanks jimbeaux!!
Chris Mohr 10:34:12 PM
Magazine!! This was big on WPRB when I first discovered it as a Central Jersey teen in the early 80s
Chris Mohr 10:35:14 PM
Ah ah ah oh!
Christine Duffy 10:39:03 PM
@Dana, your NYE show was air horn-tactic!
Dana K (host) 10:43:20 PM
๐Ÿ“ฃ๐Ÿ“ฃ๐Ÿ“ฃ
Christine Duffy 10:45:04 PM
Air Horn throughout "Orinoco Flow." I have not laughed that much during a radio show in forever.
Dana K (host) 10:45:48 PM
hahaha i'm so glad someone else found it as amusing as we did
Christine Duffy 10:49:38 PM
It was hilariously absurd. So much fun!
yoni from kdu 10:49:58 PM
Fantastic show! We enjoyed it a whole lot over here at Wando's
Dana K (host) 10:56:28 PM
thank you all for listening and for the birthday wishes! see you next week!
Christine Duffy 10:56:32 PM
Have a great birthday! ๐ŸŽŠ
Dana K (host) 10:58:18 PM
thanks! we ordered fish and chips takeout from stargazy, the british pie shop in south philly, which i'll be sharing with brian (my co-host from NYE) and yoni from KDU. very much looking forward to it.
