Jon Solomon (host) 5:01:31 PM
One more "Best of 2020" program to go. Look, I'm as surprised as anyone.
Brian D 5:04:41 PM
Once again.. the sounds of your intro and The Rub after headache inducing workday.... whew! Just right
Brian D 5:05:08 PM
Slovak czech
Jon Solomon (host) 5:05:57 PM
Yep, it is that time again.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:06:37 PM
Glad to have you on board.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:06:44 PM
Sorry about the workday.
Brian Kijewski 5:10:30 PM
Hello! Psyched for best of part 4. Will make a great soundtrack for doing dishes and making salmon broccoli and mashed potatoes.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:18 PM
Brian, that's all great. Every single part of it. Did you get any of the blizzard I heard was in Canada yesterday?
Brian D 5:13:30 PM
Thanks Jon. The fog is lifting already. Glad to have work but man today was a bear of a day. Sounds delicious other Brian
Brian Kijewski 5:13:37 PM
Just a little bit in London Ontario I believe. Nothing too crazy. Though I haven't been out a whole lot following stay at home orders here currently.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:14:07 PM
Gotcha. I was talking to some friends in Toronto about the lockdown yesterday.
Christine Duffy 5:15:53 PM
Music From Sarahan WhatsApp 01 is the gift that keeps on giving. Hi, DJ Jon 👋
Jon Solomon (host) 5:16:09 PM
CD in the chat!
Christine Duffy 5:16:16 PM
Hi, chat roomies!
Brian Kijewski 5:16:25 PM
Hi, other Brian! And right on, I don't mind it too much right now because it's cold plus I'm an introvert who is quite content getting stuff done from home.
Brian Kijewski 5:18:11 PM
And cases here are lowest in over a month so seems to be working.
the_dude 5:18:42 PM
Stoked for part IIII and dinner time
Jon Solomon (host) 5:20:09 PM
Stoked on this end too. The long-awaited Ethiopian stew is finally happening here tonight!
Christine Duffy 5:20:44 PM
That sounds delicious. Let us know how it turns our
Christine Duffy 5:20:53 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 5:21:08 PM
The chef is doing some yoga now, but I'll be reporting back do not worry.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:24:21 PM
This recipe did not happen the first time because apparently the winter squash stew needs winter squash - which we forgot to buy. Whoops.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:32:52 PM
Second time the recipe did not happen because an entire bunch of cilantro was needed and there was no cilantro in this house. What a journey.
the_dude 5:37:36 PM
Sounds like a journey worth taking! Love Ethiopian food, having the sourdough flat bread with it?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:40:24 PM
I don't believe so but I like surprises.
the_dude 5:49:33 PM
Not necessary but it's fun, also loved that last track, will have to look into was chattels now
Jon Solomon (host) 5:50:11 PM
The Wax Chattels stuff is quite good. They have at least two vocalists in the band, which means the songs don't all sound the same.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:51:16 PM
Two albums so far.
jimbeaux 5:57:27 PM
Digging Qwanqwa!
jimbeaux 5:58:26 PM
Also dig injera, the fermented Ethio bread. Have not tried to approximate, though.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:45 PM
Never made injera, but consumed far too much of it in one sitting.
Brian Kijewski 6:00:10 PM
Love that new Wax Chattels record. And regarding set one, thanks again for putting Silver Scrolls on my radar in 2020. Without this show I'm pretty certain I wouldn't have discovered as I didn't see them mentioned anywhere.
jimbeaux 6:00:59 PM
Same...hard not to! May try someday, but you need teff flour. Prob beats driving 45 min to nearest restaurant.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:02:03 PM
Yeah, the closest Ethiopian places to me are in New Brunswick but the spots in west Philly were better I've found.
Brian D 6:02:43 PM
Love this
Jon Solomon (host) 6:03:13 PM
Sadly the stew and the song didn't time out properly. Still six minutes away from cooked.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:13:07 PM
Once went on a date to an "all you can eat" Ethiopian buffet and I think I'm still full from the amount of injera I had that night.
jimbeaux 6:15:31 PM
Hard to stop! The place in NB is good, but yeah Philly places real good. D.C. is Ethio heaven!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:18:45 PM
Chicago too. 2-3 places on one street and they had an agreement that a different place got to have the buffet night on different days of the week.
julian c 6:23:09 PM
before you move on from injera completely, (that was a cool song btw), let me just say that I dream of sleeping on a bed of injera
julian c 6:23:28 PM
pillows of injera. covers of injera.
jimbeaux 6:23:30 PM
Road trip: Chicago!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:23:54 PM
I dream of punching my way through 100 papadum in one motion.
julian c 6:24:45 PM
hehehe. 100 together are like spider silk strength
jimbeaux 6:24:59 PM
I can visualize that! 3)))))))))))))))))))
julian c 6:25:34 PM
can 🛑 a Boeing 747
Jon Solomon (host) 6:27:53 PM
Correction: I have been informed this is more of a north African stew. Also, it is delicious.
Brian D 6:30:20 PM
I have a great recipe for African Ground Nut stew and it is delicious. Not a far cry from some SE Asia peanut dishes but different enough.
Elliot 6:30:22 PM
Nothing beats cutting vegetables to the rhythms of space rock. Cheers, Jon!
Brian D 6:30:46 PM
this is indeed infectious swirling psych goodness
Jon Solomon (host) 6:31:06 PM
Cut 'em, Elliot!
Brian D 6:32:57 PM
It just gets better...
Jon Solomon (host) 6:33:21 PM
The spice mix "baharat" and saffron the stars here.
Bo 6:35:22 PM
Hi Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:35:30 PM
Hello, Bo!
Brian D 6:35:31 PM
In older spacey news... I think Hawkwind is breaking some kind of amount of release records records
Bo 6:35:47 PM
Fellow listeners!

Jon Solomon (host) 6:47:02 PM
"WarfRat Tales" is the comp that 100 Flowers tune is a part of...
Jon Solomon (host) 7:08:39 PM
Wow! Already two hours in the books! Thanks for tuning in tonight. Having a bunch o' fun.
Bo 7:10:36 PM
Liked that Asher Gamedze a lot!
Bo 7:11:09 PM
This is a lot o fun :)
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:06 PM
Yeah, I didn't know anything about them before hearing their record but I was very much won over.
Bo 7:15:11 PM
Yes, I'm a fan.
Bo 7:30:05 PM
Easy to like this track :)
Jon Solomon (host) 7:30:18 PM
Yeah, putting me in a (needed) relaxing mindset.
jimbeaux 7:37:58 PM
"kneeling in wee" :)
jimbeaux 7:38:15 PM
Eff the eff cee cee
Jon Solomon (host) 7:38:43 PM
I couldn't come up with a better radio-friendly name for them and you're the first person I know of who noticed!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:39:07 PM
Somehow "Pissed Jeans" is OK to say on the radio but I believe "Kneeling In Piss" is NOT.
jimbeaux 7:42:52 PM
Urine adjectives OK, nouns NO-NO!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:43:42 PM
Verbs definitely NOT OK. I should check definitively about K.I.P.'s radio friendly status.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:46:40 PM
Sent an email to the oracle for a verdict on the band's name.
jimbeaux 7:48:04 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:50:09 PM
The one and only.
jimbeaux 7:52:14 PM
I love it when I go to favorite a bandcamp album and it's already been done from a prior WPRB/Solomon airing.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:52:23 PM
Oh nice! That rules!
jimbeaux 7:52:52 PM
That should be an oracular sign to pony up $$$
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:03 PM
Today was mostly spent listening to Albert Brooks interviews on Larry King's radio show. There are three of them on Soundcloud!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:29 PM
Finished the last one just in time for Kat's second hour.
Bo 7:54:52 PM
Thanks for the great music tonight Jon, see ya in February.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:55:22 PM
Yes sir. Already know what song from 2021 I'll be starting with, just need to figure out the 2:57:30 that follows...
Bo 7:56:10 PM
Ha, no sweat!
Corage Mike 7:57:10 PM
Enjoying the tunes, as usual. Have a good evening and thanks!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:59 PM
Thanks for being part of the chat, CM.
