Let’s do this
Mike Lupica (host) 8:03:45 PM
Hey! Welcome Jon and Alia!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:04:00 PM
Awkward start. I need to practice more.
Alia Palumbo (1) 8:04:37 PM
Everyone has those kinda days
Mike Lupica (host) 8:04:58 PM
Or those kind lives
Factorial 8:05:39 PM
howdy. proud non-starter here!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:05:55 PM
Yay Factorial!
Alia Palumbo (1) 8:06:00 PM
Has WPRB considered all Mike All the Time? I’d leave it on my radio all the time
Mike Lupica (host) 8:07:01 PM
Ha! Good god, no. That much underachieving is bad for anyone's health, can't imagine what would happen if it were to be blasted all over NJ and eastern PA. (But thank you!)
Mike Lupica (host) 8:07:38 PM
As if to prove my point, I just realized this song was looping.

Rob from Maryland 8:12:48 PM
Good evening everyone
Mike Lupica (host) 8:13:07 PM
Howdy Rob, welcome back!
Rob from Maryland 8:13:40 PM
Hi Mike! I missed some of the beginning.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:14:02 PM
Ahh, that was just me screwing up.
Andrew Gruen 8:14:03 PM
has the bass player been playing the same note for 12 minutes?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:14:27 PM
Hey Andrew, yes, I believe so but at least part of that was my mistake. (Scroll down in the chat.)
Andrew Gruen 8:15:10 PM
ah. it still worked, though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Rob from Maryland 8:16:16 PM
Whatever that last track was (the non-vocal one before this song) it was wonderful
Mike Lupica (host) 8:17:20 PM
New Nels Cline Singers LP. Yep, 2nd track I've played from it. Like it lots.
Rob from Maryland 8:18:52 PM
Thx Mike. With the NCS name and the chat references to screwup, I wasn't sure what I was listening to.
Rob from Maryland 8:19:06 PM
This EDD piece is great too
the_dude 8:19:59 PM
Howdy Mike and all! Agreed Rob that was awesome
Mike Lupica (host) 8:21:01 PM

Thanks Isa, and right on James! I swear this is .... topical.
Jon Solomon 8:22:37 PM
Mike, did you happen to see my email about something, uh, Borscht-related...?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:22:45 PM
Haha Jimbeaux.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:23:48 PM
jimbO3.O 8:24:09 PM
Yep, on fire.
Bo 8:24:56 PM
I swear I didn't hear a thing!
jimbO3.O 8:25:11 PM
Quick...get some soap in that mouth.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:25:57 PM
Guess I haven't listened to this record in a long time.
Kristin Belz 8:26:33 PM
know your music?! hope you don't get in trouble with the boss!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:26:50 PM
I believe the penalty is that I'm forbidden from riding my skateboard for a month.
Kristin Belz 8:27:17 PM
ML you can handle that kind of punishment i'm sure!
the_dude 8:30:47 PM
Lol 📻🔥, but really though
Rob from Maryland 8:31:25 PM
As a birder I have to say that Fringe Biology Recordings is a great name for a record label
Jon Solomon 8:34:30 PM
I have a birder friend and every time I see / hear some interesting bird I text him audio / photo and he IDs it right away. My wife pointed out he could have been making up bird names this entire time and I'd be none the wiser!
Hello, DJ MikeLupica! Greetings and Salutations, to One and All!
Rob from Maryland 8:37:59 PM
You're very kind, Mike, to say I'm a regular! This is only my second time listening to your show (or my third?)
Rob from Maryland 8:38:55 PM
Jon, you have a cool friend.
Jon Solomon 8:39:06 PM

Rob from Maryland 9:09:12 PM

Rob from Maryland 9:09:31 PM

Mike Lupica (host) 9:25:40 PM
The kicker part of this song (coming up) is SOOOOOO good.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:26:10 PM
Paul Major swears that this track (and their first two records) were 100% improvised. They never played this track again, according to legend.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:26:38 PM
Get ready...

Mike Lupica (host) 9:28:59 PM
Get ready!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:29:07 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 9:29:51 PM
Ordinarily it takes a band as talented as Stereolab to get this much mileage out of two notes.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:30:56 PM
Oh I am in a MOOD now.
applause applause applause
jimbO3.O 9:32:56 PM
Mine this tone forever...now i wanna hear some Träd, Gräs och Stenar
Mike Lupica (host) 9:34:12 PM
I saw them once. They were great, but they made the whole room smell for a week.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:35:37 PM
I think that's what happens when you live in a fetid tour van for 30 years.
jimbO3.O 9:35:44 PM

Mike Lupica (host) 9:41:44 PM
It was, but that idea went south quickly.
Charlie Lewis 9:42:06 PM
well, in spirit, then
Mike Lupica (host) 9:42:39 PM
More Harry Dean Stanton than Repo Man, but an article about Repo Man triggered me this morning.
Bo 9:44:41 PM
Paris Texas just might be my favorite film ever!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:45:24 PM
Bo, it is a fave of mine too!
No spoilers! Haven’t seen it yet! 😹
Bo 9:45:54 PM
Bo 9:46:24 PM
@MrM. See it!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:46:50 PM
MrM, it's not exactly an uplifting, life-affirming, feel good kinda movie. But it definitely sticks with you.
Charlie Lewis 9:46:51 PM

Charlie Lewis 9:47:42 PM
Paris Tx is amazing
Bo 9:48:58 PM
Ry Colder did the Soundtrack!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:49:04 PM
I have the soundtrack which includes the amazing HDS confessional in the stripper booth. Will finish the show with it if the crowd demands.
Bo 9:49:11 PM
I just like yelling in a chat
Bo 9:52:11 PM
@Mike, I have said record, that HDS Stripper piece is sooo powerful!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:53:35 PM
Yeah -- it's the most f'd up part of the movie, but super moving.
Bo 9:53:50 PM
