Chat is archived.
Jon Solomon (host) 4:56:27 PM
The sun is shining, the oven is pre-heating and the chat is open!
Steve Klischies 5:03:30 PM
Before the chat turns to this week's songs (and rightfully so), I can't thank you enough for playing that Terry Gross song a couple weeks ago... that album has been spinning non-stop around here
Steve Klischies 5:04:19 PM
Space Voyage Mission got me to buy it, but the second song, Worm Gear, may be even better. Love that album!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:04:39 PM
Oh you are welcome. If all goes as planned you might just hear another track from it this very evening!
Steve Klischies 5:05:15 PM
Wow! Hopefully I didn't spoil the surprise factor, but that would be fantastic.
Sebastian, darkly 5:06:21 PM
hello Jon, and fellow listeners!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:08:11 PM
Do not worry at all. It is I who tipped my own hand. Hello, Sebastian! Welcome on in!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:48 PM
This band fills the Times New Viking-sized hole in my heart (I should really see a cardiologist about that).
Sebastian, darkly 5:10:10 PM
Now that I'm reading it in the playlist, Isee what you did but when you were announcing it I thought the group was called "Kneeling Ennui"
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:22 PM
Yeah, while Pissed Jeans is OK to say on WPRB...Kneeling In Piss is not. This is the best I could come up with! Because it totally sounds like something else when I say it.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:12:18 PM
The music video for this song has so many great cameos.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:12:27 PM
I embedded it in the playlist.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:18:33 PM
Oneida jammer = I can get the potatoes into the oven safely without having to rush back with seconds to spare.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:21:02 PM
What's everyone else cooking up? Or is it too early for that question?
Fern MacBean 5:26:18 PM
Hi Jon! We have leftover scallops...so nice I don't have to cook tn.
Steve Klischies 5:26:23 PM
Provolone, ricotta, and mushroom pizza using the Joe Beddia dough recipe you shared a number of weeks back
Jon Solomon (host) 5:28:21 PM
Incredible. Both of you.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:28:35 PM
20 minute timer to check on the potatoes has been set.
Brian D 5:36:15 PM
Just got the high score!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:37:00 PM
Make sure you enter your initials on the board!
the_dude 5:45:01 PM
Hello everyone! Just keeping it simple, breakfast for dinner tonight
Jon Solomon (host) 5:45:22 PM
Good evening, The Dude!
Brian D 5:46:34 PM
the_dude 5:46:54 PM
Evening to you too Jon! Also, I found out recently we have a mutual friend
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:46 PM
Will I regret asking who?
the_dude 5:48:50 PM
the_dude 5:49:19 PM
Not at all, comedian Chip Cantry!
the_dude 5:49:33 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 5:49:43 PM
Phew! That's someone I actually know! Yes, Chip is the best. I was listening to his new podcast this morning in fact.
the_dude 5:52:03 PM
Haha yeah I thought it was cool. I listened to some of the running podcast of his you were on too, pretty good stuff! He recognized my wprb hat, how it came up
the_dude 5:52:54 PM
He's a customer of mine at my cafe, was funny listening to you talk about coffee/bagel prices while working
Jon Solomon (host) 5:53:26 PM
Ah! Chip mentioned this to me. Glad he / we could make the connection.
Cliff just Cliff 5:54:51 PM
Probly spaghetti carbonara for me
John McInerney 5:55:03 PM
broccoli rabe peppers, rutabega, tots and chx thigs pan roasted!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:55:49 PM
Very nice. I have just mixed the potatoes and turnips, which I'm putting back in for 15 more.
the_dude 5:56:11 PM
Ha cool! Yeah it's a small world/greater Philadelphia area. Later that week I had a second person recognize the hat and they're friends with dj pup!
the_dude 5:56:50 PM
Also, all about that pot luck one day, I think I'd trade my breakfast for carbonara
Jon Solomon (host) 5:57:59 PM
Clearly, keep wearing that hat.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:40 PM
I picked up a comic book in PA earlier today and it turned out the shop owner was a WPRB listener and that certainly made me want to go there more! Shout out to Wade's Comic Madness.
the_dude 6:02:43 PM
Haha really though..I remember being stoked when I saw a hat in the pledge drive...And that's awesome! Local shops supporting local radio! And the whole darn thing keeps perpetuating itself
Jon Solomon (host) 6:05:02 PM
the_dude 6:05:58 PM
Oh and what comic did you get? Was talking east of west with Mickey on the sprawl last week
Jon Solomon (host) 6:08:58 PM
The most recent Love & Rockets. Somehow I missed that two issues came out during my year of quarantine.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:09:53 PM
Only comic I regularly buy single issues of. For more stuff my daughter and I read together I wait for library trade paperbacks!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:10:30 PM
I'm supposed to get a free Y The Last Man from our town's free stuff group but that swap hasn't gone down yet.
the_dude 6:13:08 PM
Oh cool all around! Yeah Brian K. Vaughan is great, when I discovered libraries had all the trades of so many great series, that's when I really got into comics..kinda fell of with the pandemic.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:14:56 PM
I think the kid and I have gone through every new Marvel Star Wars trade in the past decade. Was harder to find everything when the graphic novels were in three different library locations for random reasons.
the_dude 6:16:30 PM
Oh yeah, been there lol. I traveled the country for a year and we went to librarians all over and I always checked their graphic novel section, selections varied drastically
the_dude 6:17:35 PM
Has she / or you read saga yet?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:18:04 PM
I checked out the first Saga but I can't remember why I didn't get to it before it was due back. Totally on me.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:18:37 PM
We've got an excellent library. Plus they can get titles they don't have from other branches in the county.
the_dude 6:23:20 PM
Oh it's great, very well done, and it's been around so there's plenty to read. I tried suggesting/lent saga to my coworker for her young daughter who was getting into comics, but she flipped thru, gave it back to her and said mommy this is too mature for me, it's not for kids lol so take that for whatever it's worth
Jon Solomon (host) 6:23:53 PM
I'll get the first book again now that I have...more time on my hands.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:50 PM
Saga. Compendium one is now on hold.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:57 PM
1,300 pages!
the_dude 6:35:51 PM
Ha! Yeah I think it lives up to the name!...and I think I deleted something? Didn't realize I could do that so easily, oh well ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ
Jon Solomon (host) 6:36:22 PM
All good. Do not worry.
Brian D 6:38:29 PM
Grilled cheese sandwiches with minestrone soup
the_dude 6:38:31 PM
Worrying would be very undude
the_dude 6:38:54 PM
Nice Brian, but what kind of bread and cheese?!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:39:11 PM
Delighted to report the potato / turnip / tofu marinade turned out excellently.
Patrick White 6:40:46 PM
Thanks for the Milford Graves tribute. Truly an innovative and visionary artist.
the_dude 6:41:06 PM
Nice! The prb pot luck would be Michelin worthy
Brian D 6:41:08 PM
Daves killer wheat. Lots of choices on cheese hmmm probably go w 1 slice gouda 1 slice cheddar
Brian D 6:42:32 PM
Maybe 2 1/2 slices of some combo. 2 seems thin. 3 is just "hold on there cuz!"
Jon Solomon (host) 6:43:55 PM
Three slice grilled cheese and I'll be asleep right away. TKO.
the_dude 6:44:52 PM
๐Ÿ‘Œ all around, 2 1/2 is the way. I'm a big fan of mayo instead of butter too
the_dude 6:45:18 PM
And a lid/pan on top to melt cheese without burning
Jon Solomon (host) 6:48:58 PM
Solid plan all around.
Brian D 6:55:51 PM
Ya lid def. Also required for the only way to reheat pizza slices. Lid off in skillet at first to crisp the bottom of bread. Then lid on to melt cheebs. Get that micro outta here!
Brian D 6:56:17 PM
Lil oil on that skillet too. A glistening
the_dude 6:57:59 PM
Ha! Idk I might choose cold like a heathen..or idk I kinda like how the microwave makes it chewier
Brian D 6:59:48 PM
Cold is great! Micro is heathen. Unless you are a dentist or own a dental practice
Jon Solomon (host) 7:00:01 PM
Have received a "I don't remember the 1990s but that sounds like something I would have insisted on doing" from my Milford Graves show date.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:01:18 PM
Wampa wampa.
Brian D 7:03:11 PM
Hello Land of The Giant Images!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:04:19 PM
Are they too big?
Cliff just Cliff 7:05:17 PM
I always do a whole number of slices on my grilled cheese ::shrug::
Brian D 7:05:30 PM
Never! On a phone they are big but i like being ablet o see the fine details
Jon Solomon (host) 7:06:21 PM
Ok. Cool. With the records that the playlist program doesn't "know" the artwork for I try and go with an image width that fits the column. Have never looked on the phone I must admit...
Brian D 7:06:46 PM
I do a whole lotta lumps and I think I went with 3 when all was said & done tonight. They were thin sliced cheese
Jon Solomon (host) 7:07:08 PM
Interesting. The chat at the bottom is the thing I wish they would slide up for mobile!
Brian D 7:11:17 PM
Have not heard Love Tractor in ages! That Athens docu back in day.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:11 PM
That record holds up super well.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:23 PM
Speaking of holding up super well, boy this session sounds nice and warm.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:24:08 PM
The other session Nick did was with electric bass, this one is upright.
the_dude 7:27:36 PM
Yeah this is really great
jimbeaudelaire 7:27:49 PM
Yell-0 jon solomon!

Jon Solomon (host) 7:28:24 PM

Jon Solomon (host) 7:48:01 PM
Solid plan. Shows also get archived on my site if you miss one (or thirty)
Cliff just Cliff 7:50:29 PM

Jon Solomon (host) 7:51:36 PM
Right on. Be well!
the_dude 7:52:36 PM
Welcome! And great show and chat, thanks Jon and cheers everyone!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:54 PM
Thanks, Dude. Going to stick around for the first hour of Mike's show (up next) and then I have a standing date with my TV.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:16 PM
Actually, I'll be sitting down.
the_dude 7:59:25 PM
Lol, share that one with chip!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:47 PM
One of my all-time favorite jokes I made was with Chip & Jeff and Jeff cut it out of the podcast!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:56 PM
"I used to paint houses in high school."
Jon Solomon (host) 8:00:03 PM
"Did you ever get caught?"
Jon Solomon (host) 8:00:35 PM
On that note!
