Good afternoon! Jeff Parker plays Frank Ocean as we open the chat here....
Brian D 12:14:44 PM
Good afternoon Dan. Funky in here
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:16:34 PM
That's some Vineland New Jersey funk too....
Christine {¤_θ}° 12:18:21 PM
The best kind.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:19:37 PM
Jersey fresh! Boogaloo Joe is from Vineland, this was actually recorded in Upper Darby....
Brian D 12:28:49 PM
Just had great childhood memory revisited last night. Watched Race For Your Life Charlie Brown the animated full length Peanuts film from 1977 where they go to camp and compete in a white water rafting race ha. Anyway there is a great funky soundtrack and theme song. Not the Vince Guaraldi music of past specials which was great of course but they successfully updated the sound for the 70s.
Brian D 12:29:49 PM
Theme song done by Larry Finlayson. Music by Ed Bogas.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:33:03 PM
Bogas did music form some of the early Bakshi cartoons too (FRITZ THE CAT, HEAVY TRAFFIC). Funny, I've been wanting to see RACE FOR YOUR LIFE too, after watching A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN (my fave) and SNOOPY COME HOME recently. Great features, they're under-herelded...
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:33:28 PM
I saw it at a matinee whenit first came out
Brian D 12:36:52 PM
It was fun to see it and hear it all bright and crisp on the big tv. Silly crazy meandering. Snoopy and Woodstock of course are the coolest characters in it. Snoop rides a souped up chopper separate from the kids in their boring schoolbus. Decked out in shades etc w appropriate funky soundtrack
Christine {¤_θ}° 12:37:28 PM
*Peanuts nostalgia intensifies*
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:38:52 PM
Yeah A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN from 1969 with songs from Rod McKuen has a timely psychedelic style montage at one point...
Christine {¤_θ}° 12:39:00 PM
I need to revisit the Peanuts features. It's been too long. Hearing the Vince Guaraldi soundtracks is like coming home.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:39:35 PM
Yeah, the features are semi-forgotten but I certainly loved them as much as a specials...
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:40:32 PM
Yeah, I love Guaraldi. When I lived in San Fran I met people who saw him live regularly (he was an S.F.er....)
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:42:10 PM
(second Coltrane cover, if you're counting....)
Patrick White 12:44:21 PM
I can't think of a piece of music that brings me more happiness than Vince Guaraldi's Cast your Fate to the.Wind.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:45:07 PM
A regular cut on my old favorite AM outlet, "WPEN- Station of the Stars"
Patrick White 12:49:20 PM
950 am the coolest coffee mugs.The Rocking Bird.Joe Niagara.they revived Grady and Hurst.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:52:28 PM
I was big on the overnight guy, "The Night Train, with Richard Crane..." He seemed to be the guy they really let off the chain, playlist-wise. Lotsa deep cuts by Louis Prima...
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:53:23 PM
Love this Angel Bat Dawid cut....
Patrick White 12:54:24 PM
I remember Di Bella used to mock them for having old listeners listening to old music.Now Di bella hosts a morning show of old music with old music.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:55:58 PM
I was forced to listen to DiBella's Zoo at a job back in the day. It kinda filled me with murderous hate for the show and the format.
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:56:36 PM
Endless plays of Bryan Adams' "Hearts on Fire"
Brian D 12:57:49 PM
I had the A Boy Named CB soundtrack LP as a kid. Loved that. Had a great music teacher in elementary school that would do a 1 man show IN CLASS FOR US ONLY where he'd put the soundtrack LP on and lip sync the ENTIRE THING . With scarf and goggles for the Snoopy character he'd sit on top of the upright piano. He was wild.... oh the 70s!
Dan Buskirk (host) 12:58:56 PM
Funny!
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:00:50 PM
Our music teacher would fold his arms and stand in front of the class and say he could wait as long as we cold for the class to be quiet. Butturns out he couldn't and he'd finally resort to shouting us down...
Christine {¤_θ}° 1:00:57 PM
@Brian D, I love your teacher for putting on such a memorable performance! 🌟
Christine {¤_θ}° 1:02:31 PM
@DJ Dan lol
Brian D 1:02:39 PM
Dan... for some relief i hope.. a person that looked an awful lot like me as a 20 something year old would torture DiBella w prank phone calls. Nothing nasty or offensive just constant annoyance.... ahhh that was fun... um i mean er it must have been fun for that guy... "John can you play any Lothar and th Hand People....?" Over and over theme and variations on that call. And them stop for a year or 2. Then pounce and call again w that request.... when he least expected it ! And other fun stuf
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:05:09 PM
Years later, worked with a guy who didn't impress me but tried to by bragging that he was one of the creators of MMR's "Zoo" show. I went from not being impressed to feeling like I was working with a war criminal...
Brian D 1:05:20 PM
Dan same teacher would fold his hands and scold us for talking too. Silence sometimes. And sometimes he woulf fold his hands and just laugh robitically and maniacally "HA HA HA HA HA...." for an entire minute or so until we stopped talking or not....
Stephen Higgins 1:06:00 PM
Great show today, Dan!
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:07:29 PM
Thanks! Somehow the show has become background for conversation about Peanuts feature films, music teacher and hating MMRs morning zoo in the 1980s. Or anything you have up your sleeve, welcome!
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:08:29 PM
"Music teachers" plural....
Christine {¤_θ}° 1:09:05 PM
We don't want to push your show into the background, Dan. It's the star 🌟
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:09:28 PM
WPEN-worthy cut coming up next....
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:10:38 PM
That's okay Christine, you're all free to use as you wish.. It's great music to take a pet to the vet with as well...
Christine {¤_θ}° 1:13:14 PM
I recall WPEN "Station of the Stars" fondly because my mother (b. 1934) would always have it on the radio in the kitchen. Growing up, I heard a lot of swing, big band & jazz.
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:15:59 PM
Actually, since my first car, a '66 Volkswagen, only had an AM radio, I drove through my late high school years only listening to PEN. While other kids pulle dinto the school lot blasting Van Halen and AC-DC, I'd slide in blasting Basie's "Jumpin' at the Woodside
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:16:49 PM
...leading to me being susceptible to Miles Davis and Chet Baker record a few years later...
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:19:30 PM
Now Vijay's "Night and Day"
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:20:14 PM
I'd say "wildly overdone" as a covers choice but he's so great at rearranging these things...
Christine {¤_θ}° 1:21:14 PM
@Dan, maybe driving a car with only an AM radio wasn't such a bad thing. You wouldn't have been able to listen to PRB though.
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:23:17 PM
It gave me a schooling I wouldn't have had otherwise, when I started listening to post bop, I knew those standards they were playing, lyrics and all (I also had all of Sinatra's Capitol records).
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:24:31 PM
I got a Pioneer Super Tuner stereo as a graduation gift, leading to a long mix cassette era....
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:44:24 PM
Some sounds from 1970 here, featuring Ahmed Abdullah of the Arkestra...
Patrick White 1:48:35 PM
I remember 1570 am in Bucks county had a brilliant short run of.eclectic 70s pop hits.
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:49:44 PM
Now "WISP-Holy Spirit Radio"
Dan Buskirk (host) 1:57:41 PM
Stay tuned for some Sonny Sharrock himself....
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:00:40 PM
Been listening to "Dance with Me Montana" all week...
Brian D 2:00:59 PM
Great melodies
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:04:34 PM
Yes, I hold Sharrock in the very highest of regard, in my personal pantheon....
Christine {¤_θ}° 2:11:47 PM
That was an energetic freeform set there.
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:12:09 PM
This Squid sounds like a Year End Lister for me...
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:12:28 PM
Thanks Christine~!
Christine {¤_θ}° 2:28:41 PM
This Hi Hawaii track is so much synthy fun. *beep boop*
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:29:09 PM
Yeah, this whole album is pretty great....
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:33:07 PM
I definitely wanted to get to the "fun" place this hour....
Christine {¤_θ}° 2:33:35 PM

Dan Buskirk (host) 2:48:54 PM
Shaggs cover!
jimbeaux 2:49:37 PM
my most favourite shaggs song !!!
the_dude 2:50:25 PM
Wow, such an amazing cover, does the original so much justice but builds on it, incredible!
jimbeaux 2:50:44 PM
is dot on this? is dot still alive?
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:51:36 PM
Yes, she put out a solo record a few years back, but she's not on that record.
Jon Solomon 2:52:25 PM
Nice to jump in the car and hear Nova Zembla starting up!
Jon Solomon 2:52:42 PM
DJ Black Low was especially cool too.
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:53:19 PM
Thanks for the head's-up on the Eleventh Dream Day Jon!
connor 2:54:26 PM
PRB insiders: where is the transmitter tower?
connor 2:55:13 PM
is it where 295 hits RT 1? as the wiki is saying?
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:56:00 PM
I thought it roamed in a unmarked van...
Christine {¤_θ}° 2:56:07 PM
What's the frequency, Kenneth?
Brian D 2:56:11 PM
I found info on that w easy search. Not sure if correct but near the train tracks and not far from a Sikh temple i think?
Brian D 2:59:22 PM
Good time Dan! See y'all
Dan Buskirk (host) 2:59:22 PM
Thanks for checking in, catch you next time!
