Jon Solomon (host) 5:01:24 PM
Hard to top the return of Cap'n Ahab, but I'll try!
Corage Mike 5:05:13 PM
Batting clean up.... Jon Solomon!
Brian D 5:05:56 PM
It is a Wednesday Warp Jon
Jon Solomon (host) 5:06:17 PM
The two day snow day only added to my confusion.
Captain Ahab 5:06:52 PM
It is Wednesday my dudes
Brian D 5:07:04 PM
Darn near 4 days of straight snowfall
Jon Solomon (host) 5:07:27 PM
Yet somehow we only got 8"-10" of snow. Seriously packed snow.
James Anderson 5:08:23 PM
Yes! I get to hear a JS show from the VERY beginning!
Brian D 5:08:32 PM
Springtown up the road a piece got 30 plus inches. The bands of snow did vary
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:51 PM
I saw one town up north may have set a New Jersey snowstorm record, besting a record from 1899!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:10:16 PM
But they're reviewing the accuracy of the claim and it could take...months?!
Brian D 5:11:01 PM
Ahab your re entry into the weekly mix just makes me love this new season schedule even more. From Mon am on it's a strong team so far
Brian D 5:11:17 PM
Go Jerz!
Captain Ahab 5:12:17 PM
It's a strong lineup all around for sure. Take that Covid!
Teresa Peacock 5:13:47 PM
We only got that much snow here in Central MA as well. Although the next town over claims to have gotten 20". I'm skeptical. Because of the 2 snow days and 2 days off at the end of the week for vaccine #2 for the residential programs, Max's day program has only been in session today of the entire week. BUT -- Max got vaccinated today! An amazing feat, believe me!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:01 PM
Nice. My dad got his second shot today (with an assist to AAA helping them get the car up the hill at the end of their driveway).
Teresa Peacock 5:15:59 PM
That's wonderful!! Yay for Mr. Solomon Sr.!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:19:41 PM
Time to contribute to the day's required riff and sludge content.
esoterica 5:19:55 PM
Hi, jon! excellent tune-age thus far an d i expect nothing less:). SUMAC! saw these guys at boot and saddle person-ing the PRB table, oh yeah
Christine Duffy 5:20:05 PM
Hey Jon 👋 Hi all you chat roomies! What a Wednesday lineup
Jon Solomon (host) 5:20:30 PM
CD in the chat! Welcome aboard!
Wheel of Randy 5:21:43 PM
Hey Jon - glad to hear about your dad
Jon Solomon (host) 5:24:30 PM
Speaking of "glad to hear," the latest Wheel of Randy was especially good!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:24:55 PM
So many podcasts I listen to come out on Mondays and Tuesdays! Yet I am caught up once more!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:26:00 PM
Ps. I keep forgetting to ask how the OK political candidates you had on did in their elections.
Brian D 5:26:59 PM
Sunset magic out there
Jon Solomon (host) 5:28:34 PM
Just took a look. It is a nice blue color outside of Ice Station Solomon presently.
jimbeaux 5:30:08 PM
Solomon solidly in the middle of a sludge sandwich!
Captain Ahab 5:30:26 PM
with a side of extra sludge
Jon Solomon (host) 5:31:35 PM
Don't forget about The Freeform Pathogen! That's the tomato / onions / extra hot peppers on the sludge hoagie we now call Wednesdays.
jimbeaux 5:33:45 PM
Schpecial sawse!
Wheel of Randy 5:35:53 PM
Oh, they got creamed
Jon Solomon (host) 5:36:11 PM
I sort of assumed as such but had been meaning to ask.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:38:10 PM
This whole live performance is "name your price" here! - https://screamingbamboo.bandcamp.com/album/live-break-these-chains-album-release-may-86
Jon Solomon (host) 5:40:01 PM
Question from my wife for the chat: "How many bands have Screaming in their name...?" I can think of at least four off-hand.
Brian Kijewski (1) 5:41:36 PM
Hello chat! This new Brokaw record is stunning. Waiting for my mail order from 12XU to arrive. New Brokaw, Charnel Ground, and Xetas.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:42:17 PM
Oh, that's a quality order. Still need to pick up all three myself. Seemingly every member of my peer group owns a copy of Puritan already.
Brian Kijewski (1) 5:46:29 PM
Indeed. Just requires patience, said it was processed at facility in Canada Sunday and nothing since. I heard there is a second Charnel album coming sometime which is very exciting. Went with The Tower, I like new Xetas, but that one still my fav.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:47:21 PM
I have a small stack of new-ish vinyl by the front door I need to catch up on before I buy anything else!
Brian Kijewski (1) 5:51:01 PM
Nice! Gotta start purchasing more new records. Only 2020 release I have is Complications by E. Got a bunch of used stuff last year, but that's it for brand new music.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:52:37 PM
Brian Kijewski (1) 5:55:05 PM
Hmm maybe I should give this new Kiwi Jr. another listen. Didn't really grab me on the first.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:55:50 PM
Brian, I thought it way WAY TOO CLEVER on first blush but I re-listened to 3-4 songs on my own last night and had a great time.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:56:13 PM
This one, the title track and two more I forgot the name of while typing.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:56:41 PM
Can't think of another record that successfully cribs from the 90s / 00s / 10s in such equal measures.
Kat Kat 5:57:52 PM
hi jon! been tuned in enjoying the show, digging oyiwane
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:25 PM
Great to have you on board, Kat!
Marisa Simon 5:58:33 PM
Wow. What a lineup today! 💖
Brian Kijewski (1) 5:59:26 PM
re: Kiwi Jr. Interesting. Think I'll re-visit. Played title track on my radio show near the end of last year, but couldn't quite get into the others.
jimbeaux 5:59:35 PM
This is beautiful!
Christine Duffy 6:00:16 PM
I'm guilty of saying this before, but the Music From Sarahan WhatsApp albums are gifts that keep on giving.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:00:45 PM
Yeah, Wednesdays are pretty ridiculous on this schedule. All the days are, honestly.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:01:05 PM
Yeah, I hope they do a "best of LP" now that the series is seemingly complete.
Christine Duffy 6:02:09 PM
That would fantastic if Sahel Sounds produced a Best Of album.
Kat Kat 6:04:59 PM
this writing squares single is so good!!!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:05:38 PM
I think they get better (and possibly more ambitious) with every release.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:09:05 PM
Dinner time over here. Penne with tomatoes and white beans. How about on your side of the radio?
Wheel of Randy 6:10:21 PM
Sous vide tilapia with some Chachere potatoes
Jon Solomon (host) 6:11:16 PM
Bo 6:13:02 PM
Hi Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:13:12 PM
Yo Bo.
Bo 6:13:22 PM
Thanks for this one :)
Jon Solomon (host) 6:13:45 PM
Were you the person who recommended this record to me? I can't recall who it was!
Bo 6:14:05 PM
I def mentioned it!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:14:24 PM
It was cool. Glad I listened to it.
Bo 6:15:02 PM
I think she has a new e.p. just out
Bo 6:15:39 PM
Glad you thought so.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:54 PM
I will seek that out post-show!
Captain Ahab 6:16:50 PM
have a great rest of your show jon! I'm off for the night
Jon Solomon (host) 6:17:08 PM
See you back here next Wednesday, Cap.
Krista 6:24:10 PM
We are eating spaghetti and meatballs here. I actually got sunburned yesterday after 6 hours outside with my child, whose snowsuit is rated to -25F. A mistake because he never gets cold and never wants to come inside.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:24:42 PM
Wow! We went on two sledding runs but nothing like that. Did get to use the fireplace for the first time in nearly a year!
Brian Kijewski (1) 6:25:13 PM
chicken pot pie and kale salad here
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:47 PM
Nicely done, Brian.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:27:58 PM
jimbeaux 6:28:07 PM
Veggie chili on one side of the stove, carnivorous on the other. Pickled red onions on both!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:29:25 PM
Here's a piece about Alejandro Morales, as promised. - https://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/alejandro-alex-morales-running-tribute-memorial-obituary/Content?oid=85692697
Krista 6:29:58 PM
We should have pickled onions this year, jimbeaux. I have some interesting red onion heirloom seeds coming in the mail.
jimbeaux 6:32:08 PM
Nice! Almost time to start from seed!
Krista 6:34:38 PM
The piece mentions Reversible Eye, I saw and heard some great art there in 2009? 2010? visiting Humboldt in Chicago
Bo 6:36:45 PM
Mush are fun.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:38:11 PM
I don't know how I didn't know him when I lived in Chicago, but I also sense he arrived shortly after I left.
Kat Kat 6:39:35 PM
oo love this song too
Jon Solomon (host) 6:40:22 PM
Jane Weaver is THE BEST. I will rep her to any / all who will listen! Can't wait for this new album.
Teresa Peacock 6:43:51 PM
And I love how many different styles -- voices, even! -- Jane Weaver has! Always luminous arrangements too. Whenever I hear something new by Jane Weaver, I'm immediately filled with hope.
Larry Fizz 6:43:59 PM
Sorry I'm late. Great tunes, Jon. Grilled catfish for dinner here.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:44:31 PM
Never too late to join the chat, Larry!
Wheel of Randy 6:46:01 PM
Loving this Nacho Szulga piece
Brian Kijewski (1) 6:46:26 PM
Oh yes, Jane Weaver is amazing! Gives me chills. Wasn't sure about the first single but it grew on me hard. And that new one hit me right away.
Teresa Peacock 6:47:04 PM
Tonight, we're just doing pizza takeout. Last night, however, I tried a new recipe for pan-roasted hot Italian sausages, 3 kinds of apples, and shallots w/ wholegrain mustard and rosemary, and a side dish of garlicky, mustardy French lentils. It was delicious!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:47:15 PM
I thought the Nacho Szulga record was out this Friday, turns out it is the NEXT Bandcamp Friday. Whoops.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:49:06 PM
That's impressive, Teresa! There's a new pizza place on South Jersey that is my current Pizza White Whale.
Bo 6:50:56 PM
Jane Weaver is just brilliant!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:51:26 PM
This Audible track is also "name your price." Link in the playlist.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:01:02 PM
Same with the latest TRVSS EP! - https://trvss.bandcamp.com/album/the-boiling-frog-ep
Jon Solomon (host) 7:06:43 PM
Every time DJ Pup says their name on the radio I respond "pup." This usually happens in the car when my daughter is present. She HATES THIS, which only fuels me to never miss a single "pup." Pup!
Brian Kijewski (1) 7:09:58 PM
I read that Trvss track is a Radiohead cover
Jon Solomon (host) 7:10:20 PM
Oh, word? I had no idea!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:10:44 PM
Will note in the playlist.
Brian Kijewski (1) 7:12:44 PM
From their Facebook: 2020 has been a year of change and different perspectives. Three song EP of covers by Radiohead , Bjork and Germs, featuring the new lineup, is up for free ...
Jon Solomon (host) 7:14:11 PM
Playlist updated. Will have to re-listen to their Bjork tune knowing now it is Bjork tune. Jetty on the Rocks played some Sugarcubes last Thursday and boy did that hit right.
Brian Kijewski (1) 7:27:01 PM
Mark M 7:28:09 PM
That was wild
Jon Solomon (host) 7:32:49 PM

Mark M 7:35:14 PM
Is this live?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:35:34 PM
It was taped live at WPRB in 2017, being re-aired tonight as part of our weekly live lookback series.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:35:55 PM
Every Wednesday in the show's third hour until we're back in the station proper!
Mark M 7:36:45 PM
Mark M 7:37:09 PM
That's cool Jon Solomon
Larry Fizz 7:37:24 PM
This is so Jon Solomon / WPRB!!!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:38:08 PM
Last song of the set. A beautiful closer.
Mark M 7:38:09 PM
My mind is expanding, I can feel it!
Mark M 7:47:08 PM
Thanks Bub
Jon Solomon (host) 7:50:00 PM
Thank YOU!
Mark M 7:51:02 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:55:36 PM
I would never tell you how to live your life, but I highly recommend you stick around for The Freeform Pathogen up next on WPRB!
Bo 7:56:03 PM
Thanks for the good tunes Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:27 PM
Of course, Bo!
Mark M 7:59:15 PM
This is the the stuff that helps you drive in NJ
Jon Solomon (host) 8:00:20 PM
See you next week! Or in Mike's chat! Or both!
