Mark 8:05:48 PM
the fine bumblebee intro goes without saying :)
Pethie (host) 8:07:18 PM

Pethie (host) 8:11:16 PM
What is love? Love is this song!
Readie Righteous 8:11:38 PM
Yeah, the vox is supremely tops!
Bruno Gridley 8:12:16 PM
This is indeed an excellent song

Pethie (host) 8:20:03 PM
me too! Instead of calamine lotion, I got my giant iced coffee
Pethie (host) 8:20:17 PM
gotta keep perky in the late hour!
jimbeaux 8:20:34 PM
VU just got real loud in my house.
Mark 8:23:45 PM
haha iced coffee that’s what we used to drink to tuesday morning power clashing :) 🍷!
Pethie (host) 8:24:08 PM
coffee always
jimbeaux 8:24:14 PM
Lou is cautioning people about poison ivy, tick, and mosquito season.
Pethie (host) 8:28:11 PM
I'm so seriously blonde, It took me way too long to figure out what you were referring to, jimbeaux.
Mark 8:30:50 PM
i think i may b parsing those vu lyrics for the rest of this show 🤔:)
jimbeaux 8:31:17 PM
Sorry, I was oblique :) those lyrics just stick in my brain
Pethie (host) 8:31:24 PM
I just love that he went to the flower shop. I like to picture Lou Reed picking out flowers.
Pethie (host) 8:33:54 PM
no apologies! it's good to make me think a little. my brain likes it.
Bruno Gridley 8:35:38 PM
Was Sally receiving CPR?
Pethie (host) 8:36:08 PM
I think a very coarse version of that, yep. Mayhaps a heroin OD
Bruno Gridley 8:36:25 PM
Sounds right
Pethie (host) 8:37:10 PM
This is why I stick with caffeine.
Pethie (host) 8:38:29 PM
I managed to play two different bands with the word 'elephant' in them.
Pethie (host) 8:38:41 PM
in the first hour!
Bruno Gridley 8:39:52 PM
Pethie (host) 8:40:07 PM
Next week it'll be some other mammal, maybe
Bruno Gridley 8:41:27 PM
The power lashing menagerie
Bruno Gridley 8:41:53 PM
Spell check stole my C
Pethie (host) 8:42:11 PM
I will put an Italian hex on spell check
Pethie (host) 8:42:36 PM
I was blasting this song in my car on the way home from work today
Mark 8:44:10 PM
better be careful about being pulled over excessive noise :)
Pethie (host) 8:45:03 PM
It was in Camden, so no one was paying me any mind.
Mark 8:45:23 PM
hahaha :)
Pethie (host) 8:45:41 PM
everyone prepare for me to wreck the pronunciation of this song's title
jimbeaux 8:46:09 PM
I cannot believe how loud cars are. had to cover my ears today while working on the street.
Pethie (host) 8:46:34 PM
everything outside seems extra loud these days.
Joseph Edward Bonaparte Junior 8:46:43 PM
Ima get another quiet car soon.
Pethie (host) 8:46:51 PM
Joseph Edward Bonaparte Junior 8:47:20 PM
Hi! Was walking the dog and listening. Back at the hive now.
Pethie (host) 8:47:46 PM
Thank you for listening! Hope the pup liked the sounds.
Joseph Edward Bonaparte Junior 8:48:19 PM
Indeed. Where's the part about bugs?
Mark 8:48:46 PM
wow can Robert sing !
Pethie (host) 8:48:50 PM
Lou has his calamine lotion!
Pethie (host) 8:49:09 PM
Whenever I get a mosquito bite, I think of that line.
Pethie (host) 8:49:27 PM
Robert is amazing. This song wrecks me so.
Mark 8:50:01 PM
just amazing:)
Pethie (host) 8:50:39 PM
Theres a lovely live version of this on youtube. BBC production, I believe. Lots of brass added to it. let me see if i can get a link.
Mark 8:51:25 PM
no need I’ll b searching after the show as prob everyone else !
Pethie (host) 8:55:31 PM
oh! I wanted to mention, I (re)started an FB page for powerclashing. I hate FB, but I know it's helpful for getting info out. You can find "Pethie Powerclashing" to get updates!
Pethie (host) 8:55:59 PM
I found the business page infuriating, so I just have an FB person page for it now.
jimbeaux 8:56:51 PM
i have managed to evade faceboook
Pethie (host) 8:57:23 PM
It gives me so much anxiety. I do wish more folks I know were on IG, I find it much more delightful.
jimbeaux 9:05:39 PM
at least the commerce is more compartmentalized on IG
Pethie (host) 9:05:47 PM
do they make computer mice that dont 'click' so loudly?
Pethie (host) 9:06:14 PM
jimbeaux, agreed!
Mark 9:07:07 PM
ya forced me to search it early & from what i saw the version is spectacular:)
Pethie (host) 9:07:31 PM
Ooh, glad you found it, Mark!
Pethie (host) 9:11:16 PM
The end of that Portishead song goes on too long and yet also, not long enough.
Mark 9:11:23 PM
haha after i had been in that infernal you tube looking at the orson welles frozen peas/ fish fingers I could b stuck there for eternity:)
Pethie (host) 9:12:06 PM
I bet I could find that station ID if I tried.
Mark 9:13:32 PM
haha it truly maybe the greatest ever ID & that’s saying a lot !!
Pethie (host) 9:14:08 PM
I do really like the punk rock vegetables one with Commie Francis. I think that's a relatively new one.
Mark 9:15:12 PM
& for any sctv fans there’s a great parody of it w candy playing irson on a liberace special
Mark 9:15:27 PM
Pethie (host) 9:15:40 PM
Oh man! That takes me back! SCTV!
Mark 9:16:38 PM
the commie ID is fantastic ! Love how she says PRB-Princeton!!
Pethie (host) 9:16:55 PM
Mark 9:18:07 PM
yeah sctv is super fantastic kats mcarthur park show got us chatting about their version w Richard Harris:)
Pethie (host) 9:18:57 PM
Are old episodes aout there to watch in the ether?
Mark 9:20:18 PM
i think there’s full episodes tho not sure on YT i only search for clips that i kinda remember
Pethie (host) 9:21:07 PM
Mark 9:22:31 PM

Pethie (host) 9:22:49 PM

Mark 9:23:56 PM
im kinda glad now it got cancelled or else woulda missed Recherche & power clash :)
Mark 9:24:27 PM

Pethie (host) 9:24:32 PM

Mark 9:24:50 PM
see below
Pethie (host) 9:25:01 PM
oh! excellent.
Mark 9:25:32 PM
yes to add to my viewing & reading backlog !
Mark 9:27:27 PM
fantastic friday nite sound b listening until the end / kinda hoping for a typical Pethie 3rd hour of wonderful weirdness :)
jimbeaux 9:28:32 PM
dang...Prussian Blue was intense
Pethie (host) 9:28:38 PM
It gets a little more mellow toward the end-- I have to get used to doing a three hour show again. I got a rhythm down with the two hour plan. Need a new flow
Pethie (host) 9:28:52 PM
Yes! Sven Wunder is really splendid stuff.
jimbeaux 9:33:54 PM
aww siouxsie
Pethie (host) 9:34:17 PM
She's a favorite of mine since the early 80s.
jimbeaux 9:34:44 PM
such a force!
Mike Abel 9:36:22 PM
Pethie (host) 9:36:28 PM
When I was a kid, my Dad knew a woman who made charicature dolls. He commissioned her to make me a Siouxsie doll. I will have to take a picture of her and upload it
Pethie (host) 9:36:41 PM
um, speaking of my dad. Hello Dad!
Mike Abel 9:37:14 PM
Hello peth
Pethie (host) 9:37:54 PM
That Siouxsie doll is pretty darned amazing.
Mike Abel 9:38:16 PM
I do hope she is in the trunk
jimbeaux 9:38:21 PM
we have achieved intergenerational chat!
Pethie (host) 9:38:31 PM
She is safe, but the cats got to some of her feathers.
Pethie (host) 9:38:55 PM
He's the guy who introduced me to so much of the great music I love today!
jimbeaux 9:39:36 PM
li'l Siouxsie sounds awesome! and dad :)
Colin McDonnell 9:41:11 PM
i was familiar with the creatures, but didn't know they had such an early release. of course it was 1981.
Mike Abel 9:42:01 PM
Returning the favor, peth introduced me to Martha and the muffins
Pethie (host) 9:42:13 PM
YESSSSS 1981...Apparently, Siouxsie and Budgie were noodling around during the Juju recording sessions, and created some songs with just vox and drums, and decided to release them separately, and so the Creatures were born
Pethie (host) 9:42:38 PM
Colin McDonnell 9:43:54 PM
Fun fact friday with wprb!!
Pethie (host) 9:44:13 PM
I'm here with all the nerdy Siouxsie trivia...
Mark 9:45:37 PM
woah the creatures were a souixie off shoot ?! i saw the album photo when u played & thought that looks like her i thought the sound was just a souxie rip off haha
Pethie (host) 9:46:43 PM
Yup, Creatures=Siouxsie + Budgie, the Banshees' drummer. They were also romantically entwined. Might still be!
Pethie (host) 9:47:10 PM
i got to see them live at the TLA one million years ago.
Mark 9:47:36 PM
haha can’t believe what i learn listening to this station and now w this chat ...
Pethie (host) 9:48:26 PM
WPRB is magic!
Mark 9:50:09 PM
& u introduced dad to martha! i heard her early on living near Canadian radio stations:)
Pethie (host) 9:50:52 PM
We inspired each others' playlists
Pethie (host) 9:51:56 PM
He introduced me to Roxy Music!
Pethie (host) 9:52:10 PM
(And Spike Jones)
Mike Abel 9:52:36 PM
Pethie (host) 9:53:13 PM
HAHA! That's okay. Who can resist the charms of "Cocktails for Two"
Mark 9:53:25 PM
haha fantastic! and we loyal PC listeners already know how ultra cool ur grandmother is ! :)
Pethie (host) 9:53:39 PM
That's this guy's Mom!
Mark 9:53:55 PM
amazing:) !!
Mark 9:57:25 PM
& one last thing : prob my favorite power clashing sound is b side roxy & Bryan ferry!
Pethie (host) 10:00:21 PM
RM are definitely in my top five favorite artists...along with Scritti
Mark 10:07:37 PM
I assume noodling around was totally unintentional:)
Pethie (host) 10:08:43 PM
uhoh, am i missing something?
Pethie (host) 10:09:56 PM
did i make an inadvertent pun or some sort of prurient slip?
Mark 10:10:36 PM
haha not too worry / romantically involved :)
Pethie (host) 10:10:41 PM
Mark 10:11:35 PM
quick search showed they did marry tho divorced in the oughts fyi :)
Pethie (host) 10:12:10 PM
that's sad! I want their slinky love to be forever....
Mark 10:13:23 PM
hahaha tho souixie states she’s “attracted to men w feminine qualities “ :)
Krista 10:14:12 PM
Listening on our drive(I'm the passenger) home from birthday dinner in Philly
Pethie (host) 10:14:57 PM
Happy Birthday Krista! I saw a msg for a moment!
Mark 10:15:08 PM
us loyal habitat listeners know where krista went ! :)
Krista 10:16:46 PM
It was tasty! Best part was getting to eat my whole dessert with no little hands reaching for my food
Pethie (host) 10:17:14 PM
I'm going to thank all you folks who tuned in tonight in case you all start drifting off. made me very happy to have you tune in
Pethie (host) 10:17:31 PM
Glad you had a fine repast, Krista
Krista 10:18:34 PM
I was navigating to the station in my car by sound because the radio dash light was out for a little bit. Got to the creaky sound right as we turned down a dark alley. Very cinematic. I knew it was WPRB.
Pethie (host) 10:19:20 PM
Dark alleys are the perfect setting for listening to WPRB. At least, this show.
Joseph Edward Bonaparte Junior 10:27:41 PM
my preferred setting is driving through the pine barrens.
Matthew Maginley 10:27:42 PM
enjoying every bit of your program tonight since the start w / Lene Lovich !
Pethie (host) 10:28:35 PM
Thank you Matthew! She's a great way to start.
Pethie (host) 10:28:49 PM
Now I wanna go driving in the Pines.
jimbeaux 10:30:37 PM
you'll have to wait until 11:01, and THEN you can drive right to the Pines
Pethie (host) 10:31:06 PM
I better make another pot of coffee for the road.
Matthew Maginley 10:33:30 PM
just brewed a fresh pot ...
Pethie (host) 10:33:55 PM
Mark 10:42:27 PM
I’m going to become a night time coffee drinker as this station is going to force me to learn french/ about 4 shows play so much i can’t understand its driving me crazy
Pethie (host) 10:42:56 PM
I don't know how the whole french pop thing happened with me. it snuck up on me. truly.
Pethie (host) 10:43:12 PM
I blame the Liminanas.
Mark 10:43:38 PM
haha i absolutely love it
Peter Small 10:47:31 PM
PowerClashing! decibels set at maximum flow; rolls out through- the screen'd window; rolling out to breathe- the cool spring air; rolls out to be- the rainy street there; rolling out to be- the scented Linden tree; rolls out to where- the street feels free; out to where- the cars hum contentedly; out to hear them say- "WPRB! More WPRB!" out to hear them say- "Thankyou Pethie!"
Pethie (host) 10:48:14 PM
Woah, thank you, Pierre! What a lovely verse!
Pethie (host) 10:49:14 PM
My Halston perfume requested this Jane Weaver remix
Peter Small 10:49:49 PM
Thank you, likewise for a beautiful show! You had m at Alambari.
Pethie (host) 10:50:13 PM
Glad you've enjoyed it, Pierre!
Pethie (host) 10:54:22 PM
Thank you to everyone for listening! It was a lot of fun. Keep tuned in for Music with Space
Mark 10:54:29 PM
