Elliot (host) 6:01:13 PM
good evening everyone! thanks as always to Selecta Jerry for the hand-off!
Elliot (host) 6:01:43 PM
despite the title, tonight's program may have FEWER flutes than usual...
Krista 6:10:26 PM
A time machine to 2018, nice
Brian D 6:12:01 PM
Beautiful this Asmar Ya Sukkar song
Krista 6:12:01 PM
The accordion (or instrument like it, concertina?) is very interesting, sounds French sometimes
Elliot (host) 6:12:23 PM
there will be a few from this reissue label -- Radio Martiko -- tonight!
Brian D 6:12:29 PM
I hurt my neck looking over that 4 leaf clover
Selecta Jerry 6:12:52 PM
Big up Elliot 4 leaf clover sweet 🍀
Elliot (host) 6:13:21 PM
I used to request this song when the old-time bands played at Fiume in Philly
Elliot (host) 6:13:44 PM
a bar way too small to fit a double bass or trombone, but that never stopped them
Selecta Jerry 6:14:00 PM
Reminds me of drunken escapades at the mummers parade
Brian D 6:15:02 PM
Total child memory hearing this. From grandparents, parents and probably cartoons
Elliot (host) 6:16:19 PM
St. Paddy's is sooner than you'd think! I saw soda bread at Costco!
Krista 6:16:40 PM
Makes me think of what would be played on the radio in Fallout. Four Leaf Clover, that is.
Selecta Jerry 6:19:33 PM
Love the Irish potatoes
Elliot (host) 6:20:31 PM
I'm hoping to find some -- my first!
Elliot (host) 6:21:10 PM
I'm out myself as a Midwesterner, but I first learned about them on a Wikipedia list of 'New Jersey cuisine' when I moved here
Elliot (host) 6:21:21 PM
Krista 6:21:59 PM
First I heard of them (also a midwesterner) is when Matt (from Philly) made them for me!
Krista 6:22:59 PM
I was very surprised when he brought me them, I was expecting something savory
jimbeauxsonic 6:24:29 PM
They're like candy, right, no potatoes involved? Another midwesternator here too.
Elliot (host) 6:24:32 PM
ps. thanks 2 all for enduring my weird traditional singing + dance beat moment back there
jimbeauxsonic 6:25:04 PM
I liked the genre blending!
Selecta Jerry 6:25:53 PM
Was Mikan Mukku angry about something or just getting something off her chest?
Krista 6:25:55 PM
Cream cheese, coconut, cinnamon
Elliot (host) 6:26:25 PM
we aim to please, jimbeauxsonic
jimbeauxsonic 6:27:20 PM
Ok, will adopt that name for awhile!
Elliot (host) 6:27:36 PM
Jerry, I have a real fear that some of the songs I play would offend me if I knew what they were saying...
Elliot (host) 6:27:40 PM
ignorance is bliss
Selecta Jerry 6:27:44 PM
Pretty mind blowing stuff i would say
Selecta Jerry 6:28:09 PM
😂 elliot
Selecta Jerry 6:29:01 PM
Fcc better have some talented translators to bring elliot down 🔥
jimbeauxsonic 6:29:49 PM
Gonna have to be an inside job!
Elliot (host) 6:32:07 PM
I'd hate to rat anyone out, but it would be nice to get paid to listen to WPRB all day...
Elliot (host) 6:33:44 PM
'they're playing another DEVO rip-off, boss!'
jimbeauxsonic 6:34:25 PM
The other stations are mad because WPRB (rightfully) proclaims to be NJ's ONLY radio station.
Krista 6:35:57 PM
Something about this has Mr. Fuzz the cat growling at the radio. Who knows what languages he speaks?
Elliot (host) 6:36:53 PM
most of their music is Name Your Price!
Elliot (host) 6:36:57 PM
Elliot (host) 6:37:25 PM
in case you're looking for inexpensive ways to torment your cat
Elliot (host) 6:37:58 PM
I try to attract my neighbors pets through music, but it rarely works
Mark 6:45:42 PM
my request is : can I get a copy of that magic flute floppy disk ? I’ll give u a postal address :)
Elliot (host) 6:48:27 PM
don't worry Mark, I'll just fax it to you
Krista 6:48:47 PM
Are you capable of playing floppy discs? I think a lot about all the lost music, imprisoned on obsolete mediums
Krista 6:51:58 PM
Two very interesting vocal styles
Elliot (host) 6:53:07 PM
every now and then, I take a tour of the 'Format' filter on Discogs
Mark 6:53:36 PM
Haha but I’m out of the waxy paper for my fax machine / I like to kid the millennials & gen z’s about “technology” that predates them
Mark 6:55:01 PM
I like how Krista knows the retro tech :)
Elliot (host) 6:55:59 PM
gotta love SelectaVision, movies that can only be seen by Jerry
Elliot (host) 6:56:03 PM
Mark 6:58:27 PM
Hmmm even I’m not familiar w that format !
Krista 6:59:45 PM
@Mark, my first ever experience playing video games was playing Oregon Trail on one of those floppy discs! Also played a grammer game where a vacuum cleaner taught spelling
Krista 7:01:28 PM
Found it: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spellevator
Mark 7:03:10 PM
Haha never would have guessed that but love it / we did discuss typewriters in one of the chats :) thermal transfer fax paper is what I’m out of !
Elliot (host) 7:03:21 PM
attn FCC: the lyric is something like 'I want to find a raft', not whatever your dirty minds are hearing!
Krista 7:04:24 PM
Made a joke by misspelling "grammar" plz clap
Mark 7:05:21 PM
I like to follow along the lyrics w shazam / I’m always impressed w how the dj’s fuzz out the questionable ones :)
Mark 7:07:06 PM
Haha didn’t even notice the misspelling & i used to be a Spelling stickler
Elliot (host) 7:11:26 PM
Shazaming some shows on WPRB feels like a lost cause...
Elliot (host) 7:15:19 PM
and now: we fly into space with Weidorje
avantbored 7:16:29 PM
That Chikada track was sick
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:17:38 PM
Weidorje always gets my attention.
avantbored 7:17:53 PM
first time hearing this. this is wild!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:19:37 PM
Weidorje is a child of Magma, with a 2nd keyboardist from Heldon.
Elliot (host) 7:21:04 PM
glad you liked it, avantbored! I thought the vocals at the end were zeuhlish enough to precede Weidorje!
Selecta Jerry 7:21:11 PM
This show tonight is maddening in a great way!
avantbored 7:21:21 PM
I'm underlistened in the French stuff from the 70s; familiar only with the name Pinhas
Elliot (host) 7:21:58 PM
I describe Weidorje as a supergroup in the mic break, but if being made up of ex-Magma members is enough to make you a supergroup, then that's basically all French prog from the era...
Elliot (host) 7:22:08 PM
Dave would know better than me, though...
Elliot (host) 7:22:34 PM
so good to be listening with everyone tonight!
Selecta Jerry 7:23:07 PM
Haha the whole time me thinks you were live
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:23:30 PM
Yes, Weidorje was mostly Magma members, plus Gauthier from Heldon, as well as a few others.
Selecta Jerry 7:23:33 PM
Magic of radio strikes again
avantbored 7:23:37 PM
it's happy hour here on the west coast. if only I had a patio
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:24:50 PM
🍷 Sláinte!
Elliot (host) 7:25:30 PM
'live in studio', like those albums with fake cheers in the background
Elliot (host) 7:26:47 PM
these chat posts aren't prerecorded, though!
Elliot (host) 7:27:27 PM
oh, hi avantbored! just realized where I know you from :)
Selecta Jerry 7:27:36 PM
To think we were jamming to four leaf clover and now listen to where we are
Elliot (host) 7:27:41 PM
the name seemed familiar...
Elliot (host) 7:29:11 PM
'past performances don't guarantee future performances', as they say, Jerry
avantbored 7:29:49 PM
Happy to be finally listening as live as it gets!
avantbored 7:30:22 PM
thought the last mic break was live too
Elliot (host) 7:31:49 PM
I can't wait to be back in the WPRB studios, sharing a mic with a bunch of other dirty music fans
Elliot (host) 7:32:10 PM
a year's distance sure makes the whole thing seem strange
avantbored 7:35:05 PM
"May Elohim bless you" ☻
Selecta Jerry 7:36:31 PM
I was telling pat o i do the same thing at home as i do at the station following him. Sit on the couch fumble on my phone and listen to scarlet pumpernickel
Krista 7:36:42 PM
This is the year we will make edible Hamentaschen, I swear
Selecta Jerry 7:38:18 PM
That will go good for the people who dont like irish potatoes
Elliot (host) 7:39:51 PM
'wish you good luck and happy life' might be a less sacrilegious thing to say on air...
Elliot (host) 7:40:56 PM
the Indian Ocean, man...
Elliot (host) 7:43:11 PM
the clarinet playing in this style of music -- epirotika, from Epirus in NW Greece -- hits me so deeply
avantbored 7:44:36 PM
that's a clarinet?
avantbored 7:45:06 PM
kind of loving what the recording medium did to it
Elliot (host) 7:45:19 PM
I couldn't believe it, either!
avantbored 7:45:36 PM
very about this set
Elliot (host) 7:46:08 PM
trying to end where we began, sort of
Elliot (host) 7:46:43 PM
modern epirotika sounds much more psychedelic -- they really like reverb
Elliot (host) 7:46:46 PM
Elliot (host) 7:47:24 PM
a station in Ioannina where it's all they play -- astounding stuff
Krista 7:48:30 PM
It's so beautiful! I picked up a "reeds" compilation that has some beautiful reeded instruments. Last week (I think, Dave will know) in the Sangeet show was a very interesting 2 reeded instrument, I forget the name of it
avantbored 7:49:30 PM
I wish I'd turned in earlier. This track rules!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:49:45 PM
Shehnai in the north. Nadaswaram is a larger one on the south.
Elliot (host) 7:51:38 PM
this is a really neat reeds compilation: https://dust-digital.com/shop-vinyl/excavated-shellac-reeds
Elliot (host) 7:51:53 PM
his Excavated Shellac blog is a miracle
avantbored 7:52:47 PM
I have that massive compilation released last year. Have yet to dig in.
Elliot (host) 7:53:45 PM
be careful - you could get lost in it...
avantbored 7:54:10 PM
Think that's why I've been avoiding it!
Elliot (host) 7:54:19 PM
one of the tracks -- a north Vietnamese court ballad -- sounds weirdly like a lonely prewar country blues recording
avantbored 7:54:51 PM
avantbored 7:55:00 PM
Are there any comps that do that kind of pairing?
Elliot (host) 7:55:36 PM
if you find one, tell me!
avantbored 7:55:41 PM
haha will do!
Selecta Jerry 7:56:30 PM
Nice show E ! You made my dinner very entertaining
Krista 7:56:32 PM
That's the one I have
avantbored 7:56:52 PM
so glad I got to tune in; can't wait for next week.
Krista 7:56:55 PM
Mekong Delta Blues
avantbored 7:57:39 PM
Is that by Master Kong Nay?
Krista 7:57:44 PM
avantbored 7:57:48 PM
Krista 7:58:54 PM
It's an astounding album, very much Delta blues and Vietnamese traditional, fused together in surprising ways
Elliot (host) 7:59:00 PM
nothing's better than lining up a bunch of weird music with friends! thanks for tuning in, and stick around for Uneasy Listening!
avantbored 7:59:21 PM
looking forward to exploring
Elliot (host) 8:00:08 PM
cheers, all!
avantbored 8:00:43 PM
cheers, Elliot! See you next week. Thanks for the tunes.
