Thanks man! I knew deep down I'd be back ;)
Captain Ahab (host) 3:08:05 PM
This show is pre-recorded but I'm going to go live ASAP
Captain Ahab (host) 3:08:20 PM
Just need to get the technical stuff sorted
Bud Burroughs 3:09:41 PM
Seriously, you left us in 2014?!!! Doesn't seem that long. Of course, the Mixcloud shows helped...
Brian D 3:09:55 PM
Welcome back Capt. Looking forward to the fuzz!
Hanna Sz 3:10:54 PM
liiiive ..epic
Captain Ahab (host) 3:10:56 PM
If 2020 taught us anything it's that time isnt real
Captain Ahab (host) 3:11:52 PM

Hi Hanna!!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:51 PM
Thanks Teresa! Glad to be back!
flex luthor 3:14:54 PM
the one good thing about covid is all the alumni coming back and bringing excessive fuzz to the airwaves
Lance Gardner 3:15:07 PM
Glad you are back.....missed your great shows. One my favorite DJs!!
flex luthor 3:15:09 PM

Jon Solomon 3:16:14 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 3:16:34 PM
Everyone say thanks to Jon for single handedly making this happen
Jon Solomon 3:17:11 PM
Oh please. I just sent an email. Everyone else did everything else!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:17:31 PM
<3<3<3
Hanna Sz 3:18:41 PM
flex ! hello, yes...i need all the alumni with their facemelting noise on the airwaves
Captain Ahab (host) 3:20:14 PM
Also in typical Desert Cruising fashion, we're 20 minutes in, but it's only the third song
Colin McDonnell 3:23:01 PM
working from home allows me to play this show at a proper volume, not quietly in my office headphones. Welcome back!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:49 PM
I hope your neighbors can hear!
Hanna Sz 3:24:22 PM
hell yeah Colin
Colin McDonnell 3:27:49 PM
The icicles have successfully been shook off the house.
jimbeaux 3:29:06 PM
crunchity crunch crunchy crunchers
Captain Ahab (host) 3:30:22 PM
saw these guys in london, the earplugs were futile
jimbeaux 3:33:05 PM
nice!
Brian D 3:33:05 PM
Earache my eye!
Jon Solomon 3:33:46 PM
So nice to hear Sleep on WPRB and not have it be because a DJ is MIA...
Brian D 3:34:19 PM
Colin I think we know each other! Brett N is the connection.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:34:25 PM
That was a pretty good excuse to just put on dopesmoker though!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:34:47 PM
To this day I wonder how many phone calls went unanswered
Captain Ahab (host) 3:34:57 PM
"What is this noise?!?!"
Jon Solomon 3:35:57 PM
I often wonder about how many people have been trying to call the WPRB studio request line since the station went to remote broadcasting. I've wanted to pick up the phone a few times and check in with the DJ while driving over the past 11 months.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:38:52 PM
It makes me so sad to think of that phone blinking into the night
Brian D 3:39:37 PM
If your phone doesn't ring it's me...
Colin McDonnell 3:40:08 PM
Brian!! You're correct. Now I see it in the face. wprb chat brings the world together. Amazing.
Brian D 3:40:41 PM
I still have the Martin D 28 from Gtr Ctr Langhorne
Brian D 3:41:00 PM
You have it good mojo at the register
Brian D 3:41:11 PM
*Gave
Brian D 3:42:31 PM
We both bonded over mutual love of DJ Dr Cosmo RIP
Colin McDonnell 3:44:40 PM
Cosmo is forever an inspiration. and this King Gizzard track is fresh!
Hanna Sz 3:45:16 PM

esoterica 3:48:37 PM
hi, cap'n ahab! as a socal native i approve of desert cruising! i am accustomed to the heat and sand blasts... love the windhand!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:51:05 PM
Thanks, glad you're enjoying!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:51:16 PM
(I'm actually from SLO county in CA)
Captain Ahab (host) 3:51:31 PM
Moved to Richmond when I was 10 though so idk
esoterica 3:55:49 PM
San Luis Obispo? Cool!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:56:33 PM
The very one
Brian D 4:02:27 PM
Saint Louie the Bishop
Captain Ahab (host) 4:03:56 PM
Your comment reminded me of the time a listener called in angry about the way I pronounced St Vitus
Captain Ahab (host) 4:05:26 PM
I deserved it
Bud Burroughs 4:06:14 PM
Damn work meetings - I missed Windhand and Valley of the Sun!
Brian D 4:06:31 PM
Ooh that makes me think of Iommi and Butler. Low tuned guitar goodness St Vitus Dance
Jon Solomon 4:13:18 PM
Shots fired!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:39 PM
I stand by what I said!
Brian D 4:14:25 PM
F the Harvard station. Don't be mean to Ahab
Jon Solomon 4:14:43 PM
I like this record real well and I'm delighted how it fits sonically with the rest of the playlist.
Kristin Belz 4:15:12 PM
whaddya expect it's harvard! once you start radio at prb, nowhere else quite compares!
Brian D 4:15:26 PM
Like as well. And double like the record label name
Brian D 4:15:53 PM
There's the fuzz!
Teresa Peacock 4:18:37 PM
As a listener, I can attest that Harvard's station was/is really disappointing. The shows to which I attempted to listen seemed to function only as an inside joke among djs. There was no attempt to reach out to their hypothetical audience. Even when the selections were good, I felt like I was eavesdropping not listening...
Teresa Peacock 4:19:51 PM
In other words -- What Kristin Belz said!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:21:50 PM
Yeah, I never understood their programming philosophy. 5am–1pm was Jazz, 1pm–10pm Classical, then 10pm-5am "miscellaneous"
Captain Ahab (host) 4:22:02 PM
Variety was not the spice of life there
Brian D 4:28:50 PM
Slide slide slide
Brian D 4:29:40 PM
Slide gtr gets us the infinite possibilities of microtonality
Brian D 4:37:19 PM
Love the lead gtr tone on this Earthless
Captain Ahab (host) 4:40:31 PM
I love that you love it!
Brian D 4:41:51 PM
Lead gtr that keeps it interesting and changing throughout the piece
Corage Mike 4:45:19 PM
This rocks!
Corage Mike 4:48:06 PM
Drummer plays in Off!
Brian D 4:51:40 PM
Captain you steered the sand ship well. Ears were treated
Teresa Peacock 4:51:45 PM
Ooo, @Corage Mike -- I've got to check Off out!
Jon Solomon 4:53:18 PM
Mario from Earthless / OFF! goes all the way back to Clikitat Ikatowi. Think he also drums for Hot Snakes these days.
Jaden Shirkey 4:53:31 PM
Just tuned in but am really digging this 8)
Corage Mike 4:54:16 PM
Check out the Vinyl Guide podcast w/ Mario as a guest. Very good.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:55:00 PM
Oooh will do! Thanks Mike
Teresa Peacock 4:56:29 PM
Fabulous! I'm making a note of that. :-)
Corage Mike 4:57:00 PM
Great show.
Hanna Sz 4:57:12 PM
yohoho Jaden
Captain Ahab (host) 5:01:22 PM
That's a wrap folks! So good to be back, thanks for joining. Stay tuned for Jon Solomon up next!!
