There was an X-ray of someone else's mouth in the email, for good measure.

Teeth teeth teeth
jimbeauxtron 5:07:51 PM
HR from Bad Brains turned 65 a day before Rollins!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:07 PM
Did not realize. Probably b/c HR doesn't have a business that is also his birthdate!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:35 PM
jimbeauxtron 5:11:13 PM
True, true!
Wheel of Randy 5:15:03 PM
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Robert J. Cotter (July 15, 1943 – November 12, 2012 ) was an American chemist and mass spectrometrist. His research contributed to many early advances in the field of time-of-flight mass spectrometry. From 1998 to 2000 he was president of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:17 PM
Stream working OK for all?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:33 PM
Can't be the same gent...can it?
Wheel of Randy 5:15:54 PM
Stream working ok. Different Mr. Cotter
Jon Solomon (host) 5:17:09 PM
The year of birth made it seem possible. I know the stream had to be reset and it is working for me but wanted to make sure we are all good. We are!
Brian D 5:20:24 PM
Socks. Where are they? Rocked off they have been
Jon Solomon (host) 5:20:54 PM
Yeah, this version of an already great song will do that to anything below the ankle.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:25:47 PM
More firewood has been moved indoors while this jammer jams.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:39:29 PM
Ok. I think that's enough firewood. They're expecting 4-6" not 4-6'.
Big Al 5:41:26 PM
Awesome song
Jon Solomon (host) 5:42:08 PM
Glad you enjoyed, Big Al.
Teresa Peacock 5:42:11 PM
This Sunburned Hand Of The Man continues the expansive mood that Cap'n Ahab sets with her show
Jon Solomon (host) 5:42:43 PM
I do not disagree!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:43:03 PM
We're going deep on the radio tonight.
Teresa Peacock 5:43:16 PM
Wouldn't that I would think that you would!
Brian D 5:46:27 PM
O yes!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:47:28 PM
This new live Fall record is something I thought would just be a pleasant addition to their many recordings but it is a step or two above-ah.
jimbeauxtron 5:50:11 PM
Brian Kijewski 5:51:21 PM
Hello chat! Good call with new live Fall record. Haven't had a chance to listen yet. Not always the biggest fan of live records, but hearing this right now has piqued my interest.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:51:46 PM
Right there with you, Brian. Not the last you'll hear off it on WPRB I suspect...
jimbeauxtron 5:53:14 PM
Sheffieldtapearchive on bandcamp has some fall sets and other super bands!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:54:53 PM
Oh, I neglected to also wish Chris Forsyth a happy birthday. Happy birthday, Chris!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:56:15 PM
Video is embedded in the playlist.
Brian D 5:57:37 PM
Boneless chicken thighs simmered in a Thai lemongrass sauce w/bell peppers and cauliflower thrown in too.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:57:56 PM
Ooh. Well done.
Captain Ahab 5:58:13 PM
fancy! egg fried rice with hot smoked salmon over in these parts
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:27 PM
Broccoli dal + naan incoming.
Captain Ahab 5:58:41 PM
had to find a way to use up the abundance of carrots from my veg box
Jon Solomon (host) 5:59:28 PM
Roast them with some cumin. I'll find the recipe we use. Think it is in Oh She Glows.
Captain Ahab 5:59:56 PM
oh that sounds good!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:00:17 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:00:30 PM
I think this is basically it. No need to use rainbow carrots exclusively.
jimbeauxtron 6:01:16 PM
Captain Ahab 6:01:17 PM
ooo much obliged! right up my alley, love tahini
Brian D 6:01:26 PM
Cumin = great friend to kohlrabi. If you get tons of that @ the CSA peel it, cube it, season w/cumin & s&p and saute w/ oil/ghee blend or roast it w/oil. Cumin is friend
Jon Solomon (host) 6:02:20 PM
Clearly post-COVID we need to do a WPRB listener pot luck.
Brian D 6:02:45 PM
Brian D 6:03:19 PM
Cumin loves sweet potato too. W/dried ancho, adobe even more love
Jon Solomon (host) 6:03:53 PM
Leftover ancho paste from previous black bean soup = more black bean soup on the horizon.
Captain Ahab 6:04:33 PM
here's a question for you, do you pronounce it queue-min or coo-min
Captain Ahab 6:04:52 PM
hard hitting questions here in the PRB listener chat
Brian Kijewski 6:05:07 PM
Always impressed with the food selections. Spaghetti and meatballs with homemade tomato sauce simmering over here.
Brian D 6:05:23 PM
We had not bought any pre made hummus or baba ganoush in long while. Get huge jar tahini and we make our own. Dried cooked chikpeas or can if need be for the hummus. Long slow saute eggplant til it turns to sugary jam for the baba. Oh I want...
Brian D 6:06:27 PM
Sometimes COO-min. Sometimes comino for fun.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:06:43 PM
"Coo-min," but I have been known to say "queue-min" from time to time.
Brian D 6:07:58 PM
Onions in the eggplant saute too. Do a 2 layer w/the hummus. Toasted pine nuts on top. Drizzle extra virgin. Maybe roasted reds or oil soaked sundried tomatoes....
Captain Ahab 6:10:30 PM
if you have a gas burner, my fave way of roasting eggplant is to poke a few holes in em and roast em straight on the flame
Captain Ahab 6:10:48 PM
the way turkish grandmas do
Jon Solomon (host) 6:10:54 PM
N did that with a pepper the other night pre-nachos.
Captain Ahab 6:11:15 PM
yes peppers roast perfectly this way too!
Brian D 6:12:00 PM
Chicken thighs have been simmering in the crockpot for 6 hours. Love that thing.
Brian D 6:13:42 PM
Ahab, summertime I char the heck out of the eggplant on the grill. I miss my charcoal grill but... condo living on the balcony... oh well. It's a memory. But in winter a good pre sear on the griddle pan and some smoked Spanish paprika to help in the smoke department
Wheel of Randy 6:15:04 PM
Nuts, I leave to take care of the vomiting dog, and I miss the afropop???
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:26 PM
I hope the dog is OK and that you all are holding up weather-wise!
Brian D 6:15:47 PM
I like to tempt the smoke alarm. Try me! Best wishes to the dog Randy.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:49 PM
What's on now is a "name your price" download on Bandcamp! - https://kikagakumoyoggb.bandcamp.com/album/deep-fried-grandeur
Captain Ahab 6:15:50 PM
I dunno if these are safe but maybe a balcony grill is in your future?! https://uncrate.com/balcony-grill/
Wheel of Randy 6:16:17 PM
Our pipes have held up, but this is much more snow than we're acclimated for.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:16:52 PM
Some friends in TX seem to be getting their power back, others not so much.
Brian D 6:16:56 PM
I have a great Fuego grill on the balcony but it is gas. Huge circular grate that is up at a nice back friendly height. It looks like the Uranium P32 Space Modulator little alien from the old cartoons.
Brian D 6:17:49 PM
It does not smoke like a charcoal grill but she gets the job done with plenty of real estate.
Captain Ahab 6:18:13 PM
Thanks for the link Jon
Jon Solomon (host) 6:19:57 PM
Of course. I knew I'd get to it at some point in the song's 19+ minutes.
Brian D 6:21:44 PM
This is a journey! I thought the playlist was delayed. Same song though. Gets more interesting as it goes
Jon Solomon (host) 6:22:30 PM
I heard DJ Pup (pup!) play a track from it last week and I dug it a lot but I think I was into the flip side even more.
Brian D 6:23:32 PM
This Oiseaux is really cool too
Jon Solomon (host) 6:24:33 PM
Yeah, I look forward to hearing the full record soon. Very up my alley.
Brian Kijewski 6:25:28 PM
Likewise. This track is great. Bought off Bandcamp recently.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:41 PM
Fellow Canadians!
Brian Kijewski 6:26:11 PM
Brian Kijewski 6:27:03 PM
Not sure if These Estates are still a thing, but this will do just fine.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:27:19 PM
They are indeed.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:27:40 PM
Pandemic put em on "pause" but the same holds true for most things.
Big Al 6:28:43 PM
You guys talking food....making me hungry

Jon Solomon (host) 6:29:08 PM
Brian Kijewski 6:31:30 PM
Oh, great news! Didn't end up checking out These Estates records until 2 or 3 years ago, but they are the best.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:32:00 PM
Indeed. Big fan.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:46:44 PM
Totally normal dinner conversation over here comparing the Jedi order to NXIVM...
Jon Solomon (host) 6:59:47 PM
Another "name your price" download playing presently...
Jon Solomon (host) 6:59:50 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:05:03 PM
Weirdly, even though I'm talking about Joshua Abrams presently his piece seems to be missing from this set that just aired? A ghost in the machine? A preview of next week's show? Time will tell!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:34:40 PM
Songs you heard in the Thalia Zedek set - A Float / By The Hand / All I Need / Illumination / Julie Said / You Will Wake
jimbeauxtron 7:35:27 PM
Love Thalia!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:36:09 PM
Same. Just moved one of her duets with Chris Brokaw into next week's playlist while this was airing...
Jon Solomon (host) 7:40:16 PM
jimbeauxtron 7:44:30 PM
We will have to take you on your word re: 60 push-ups.
jimbeauxtron 7:45:48 PM
I hear mike is gonna do *80* on FFP webcam tonite!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:46:33 PM
He's going to pull 21,361 lbs with his teeth as his Rollins tribute.

Jon Solomon (host) 7:49:54 PM

Birthday push-ups on the radio! I love it. Thanks, Jon.
