Where are the visuals???
Brian D 8:04:08 PM
press on eyeballs
Factorial 8:04:09 PM
this sounds like a slowed down version of acdc you shook me all night long
Jon Solomon 8:05:35 PM
I had a Loverboy folder in my Trapper Keeper. This did not come up in my chat and is a Freeform Pathogen Exclusive.
Brian D 8:05:51 PM
Ooo Trapper Keepers... wow
Jon Solomon 8:06:39 PM
Teresa Peacock 8:07:13 PM
You wanna piece of my heart?! You better start from the start! You wanna be in the show?! Well, c'mon, baby, let's go! That is to say: Good evening, Mr. Lupica!
Jon Solomon 8:07:49 PM
Seems like I've been stuck with two skids of Doomsday Pantry novelty painter's caps.
Brian D 8:08:01 PM
Scratch & sniff the hairspray. Apparently she was turning on the heat. And she was in possession of a magic touch. But it was a little too much. At one hundred above yet
Teresa Peacock 8:08:29 PM
Also -- That Yo La Tengo bassline is the same or similar to VU's "European Son"
Mike Lupica (host) 8:08:44 PM
Hey gang! Sorry, no Starlite Lounge webcam tonight. Kiddo needed her laptop for a school project. Look at the picture up there on the left and USE YR IMAGINATIONS!
Brian D 8:10:18 PM
Love this song
Mike Lupica (host) 8:11:30 PM
I always want to heat this song on days with weather like today's.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:11:36 PM
Hear this song, rather.
William Hollister 8:11:45 PM
what is the background ambience for your intro?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:12:11 PM
That is, in fact, a slowed down and reversed sample of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long".

dante from the woods 8:12:48 PM
was just introducing some people in the woods to this song.!
Brian D 8:13:03 PM
I'll heat this song too. I think cats like this song
Mike Lupica (host) 8:13:21 PM
Good work, Dante. It is popular with trees and shrubberies.
Brian D 8:13:23 PM
Now it became that song as we spin the planet further....
Brian D 8:14:55 PM
I remember reading the word "Octopad" over and over with WIDE eyes as I eyed up Mickey Hart's rig on a big screen at the aforementioned JFK stadium on Solomon Chat. I liked reading that word. It felt good.
Factorial 8:17:12 PM
this was one of my first cassettes, totally solid
Mike Lupica (host) 8:18:17 PM
Indeed. Totally love Monie!
Christine Duffy 8:19:33 PM
I'm loving this vibe.
Brian D 8:20:14 PM
Feet are warm now. Blood pumping through them. Slight fear of socks being rocked off and starting the whole procedure over and repeating...
Brian D 8:26:07 PM
РOHИ JЕИMЗ ДИО . That's as close as I can get
Mike Lupica (host) 8:26:23 PM
Works for me!
Brian D 8:27:23 PM
I could not find a Cyrillic letter for Evil Eye devil horn hand gesture.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:27:52 PM
I think that means you earn the right to design one?
Brian D 8:28:35 PM
Ha! Yes.... I copied pasted my cobbled together symbols into google and Dio links came up. So I might have come close
Mike Lupica (host) 8:29:25 PM
Nice! I'm sure RJD is smiling (and throwing the goats) in the great beyond.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:30:59 PM
Would also just like to point out that this song rules even more now than it did when I listened to it for the first time at around 9:30 this morning.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:32:10 PM
Which just goes to prove that Japanese hardcore bands make the best synth punk.
Brian D 8:32:17 PM
Aha...more searching shows that it is actually " Ронни Джеймс Дио "
DJ MikeLupica! Excellent start to the show!
Factorial 8:36:36 PM
yes, the Faint probably opened for them lol
Brian D 8:36:51 PM
You have robbed letters from my teeth
Mike Lupica (host) 8:43:21 PM
First #thefaint reference of 2021!
Andrew Gruen 8:52:31 PM
i am digging this uplifting starlite lounge vibe tonight
Mike Lupica (host) 8:53:44 PM
Awesome, glad to hear it! I'm sure I'll wreck the vibe sometime in hour two.
Christine Duffy 8:56:32 PM
Yeah, this track is fun! 🔥
Teresa Peacock 8:56:52 PM
I love that due to imprints like Slovenly, Spanish-language bands/performers are really having an extended moment. That Pódium track was so good! Especially after the equally high-octane TV Priest! Great pairing!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:57:35 PM
Totally agree, Teresa! God bless Slovenly Records and all who sail with her!
End of first hour?? Slow down the clock ⏰! Fast and Fun timez!!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:03:11 PM
Yay MrM!

coffee is the root of all my problems
Space Cowboy 9:37:17 PM

Roky couldabeen top 4O C&W with that starry tune
jimbeaux 10:48:20 PM
I was just, just, just thinking about the Gun Club
Mike Lupica (host) 10:48:29 PM
Roky coulda been a lot of things. One of my lifelong regrets will always be the fact that I never saw him live. Had tix to his gig in Jersey City right before he died.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:48:39 PM
I often think of the Gun Club.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:49:05 PM
Also, this JLP solo record. Which isn't that good, really, except for this song, but which I cherish anyway.
jimbeaux 10:49:29 PM
Yes, missed Roky. Shoulda tried harder.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:49:52 PM
My wife and I listened to this JLP album on repeat for hours on the drive from Jerome, AZ to Phoenix. Perfect soundtrack to the lonely desolation.
