Happy Membership Drive Eve!! The chat is live!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:02:42 PM
Let's wear some heads out.
Wheel of Randy 5:15:50 PM
Wheel of Randy 5:16:26 PM
I just noticed that your blues DJ is Sonny Boy Williamson III, and that's the funniest thing I've ever heard
Jon Solomon (host) 5:19:59 PM
Hello! His show is as good as his name. I *can* get his theme song out of my head though, unlike some theme songs I can think of presently...
jimbeaux 5:20:24 PM
Nana is BURNIN'
Jon Solomon (host) 5:21:47 PM
I wish I could remember who told me about this record. Also, it seems pretty clear to me that unless there was parallel thought across continents, Arthur Russell heard this record from the 1970s.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:22:32 PM
Pre-dates his work, yet sounds shockingly like some of it.
jimbeaux 5:23:20 PM
Think Deirdre played her recently?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:24:44 PM
Oh nice. Pretty sure it was a pal who recommended off-air but perhaps it was someone in this chat instead? We may never know!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:30:44 PM
Where are my manners?! How is everyone in the chat tonight?
jimbeaux 5:39:48 PM
A-OK #1 superfine!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:40:20 PM
For you, I'd expect nothing less.
jimbeaux 5:43:40 PM
And how is Maestro Solomon?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:44:51 PM
You know, decent enough! Went for my first run of 2021 yesterday and am excited about what the Membership Drive holds. So I'm in a good place tonight (knocks on everything).
Wheel of Randy 5:47:36 PM
Fishboy! Denton represent
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:53 PM
Fishboy and the Mean Green, a big 30 days for Denton.
Wheel of Randy 5:49:46 PM
I've got a client down there, and I love to go down there because UNT's jazz station is phenomental.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:50:12 PM
The people I know from Denton are excellent across the board.
Wheel of Randy 5:50:16 PM
Even though the school is UNT, the call signal is KNTU for some reason
Jon Solomon (host) 6:02:16 PM
Hmmm. Wonder why.
jimbeaux 6:03:43 PM
Hmmm...good call (letters). Of all the cities in Texas, i think I've met 3 from Denton!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:11:58 PM
Theory: Much like how College of New Jersey used to be Trenton State (thus WTSR) was UNT once NTU?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:13:22 PM
Oh, I just got it. I'm smart.
Wheel of Randy 6:13:43 PM
Thanks to The Best Show, I thought their name literally was "F'd up" for a long time
Jon Solomon (host) 6:15:07 PM
Amazing. There's a copy of a certain Big Black record in the WPRB stacks with every possible replacement word for the last word in the record's title scrawled on it. Wish I had a photo handy.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:24:00 PM
Having never written a rock opera, let alone a four part rock opera, wrapping my head around this F'd Up Year of the Horse behemoth is difficult for my wee mind.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:24:29 PM
Especially when, like in Act Three, moments reference back musically to prior acts.
jimbeaux 6:25:04 PM
Songs About...Going Over To A Trusted Family Home to Study Trigonometry
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:31 PM
Songs About Mommy & Daddy Are Fighting was a good one, as was Songs About Firetrucks.
jimbeaux 6:27:45 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:28:12 PM
Speaking of which, I got an alert that there is a four alarm structure fire in West Windsor tonight.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:32:06 PM
Double Rock Opera Wednesday Night.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:36:04 PM
Gnocchi on the stove for enjoyment during the live session.
James Anderson 6:53:45 PM
Hmm, it's not "poisonarrows.com"

Jon Solomon (host) 7:01:39 PM
Happy to help. Sorry about that!
Brian D 7:02:59 PM
Luv brand Black Bean Burgers on soft corn tortillas, cheddar, avocado, crunchy cabbage/carrot shreds, yogurt, lime. Enjoy the gnocchi!
Brian D 7:05:25 PM
Fire at our trash/recycling center in upper Bucks Co. Last night into this am.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:10:49 PM
Crunchy cabbage = double-checked if we had cabbage for future crunchin'.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:11:09 PM
The photo of the West Windsor fire looked pretty gnarly. Apartment complex, it appears.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:05 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:20 PM
Plenty of news stories about it, had no idea. Now under control.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:29:26 PM
I hope everyone reading this is ready to hit up pledge.wprb.com starting tomorrow, especially a week from tonight!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:43:19 PM
I say it a bunch but this was a real fun one.
Brian D 7:44:34 PM
Love the 75$bill. They build it and bring it.
Brian D 7:44:39 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:45:35 PM
See you next week, Brian!
David Shortell 7:47:38 PM
@Wheel of Randy. I usually miss Sonny Boy Williamson III’s great noontime program, so I’m glad it’s repeating at 1:00 AM. I wish I knew if the show had an archive.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:52:25 PM
SBWIII has a Twitter and an Instagram for his show, that's an excellent question to ask. I always enjoy what I hear him play.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:52:55 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:04 PM
jimbeaux 7:53:35 PM
I caught a chunk o' blues today...great show!
jimbeaux 7:55:01 PM
and thx for the $75 bill...keep the change.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:55:19 PM
A bargain at twice the price.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:03 PM
Tim and Scratchy Vinyl fill in for ML at the top of the hour, if you missed it.
