Welcome on in to tonight's Listener Chat!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:01:49 PM
Let us have some fun tonight.
Patrick White 5:01:57 PM
Good evening Jon from It always Hails in Philadelphia.Hope not headed your way.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:02:51 PM
Looks like we missed this round. Sunny skies again. Saw some photos from the Philly suburbs that were gnarly.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:02:59 PM
Hope you're keeping dry / safe.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:10:50 PM
Well, there's your project while you listen to tonight's show.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 5:11:14 PM
Pretty sure it’s Recyclingtron 5000. Beep boop.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:39 PM
Beep boop every one.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:53 PM
A pleasant evening to you, Mr. M!

Hi, DJ JonSolomon!

Awww, BIZ MARKIE Rest In Peace
Jon Solomon (host) 5:16:35 PM
I know Mike has a bunch of Biz in store tonight. Looking forward!
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 5:16:55 PM
Don’t hit the trash can on accident when posting messages, kids
Jon Solomon (host) 5:18:04 PM
Happens to the best of us.
Christine 🦊 5:20:28 PM
I used to love seeing the Biz's Beat of the Day segment on Yo Gabba Gabba. πŸ’” Rest in Peace, Biz.
Christine 🦊 5:21:09 PM
Hello, Jon, MrM πŸ’€, Patrick et al
Jon Solomon (host) 5:22:00 PM
Yeah, he was the best. Really talented on the turntables and with his voice beyond rhymes.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 5:23:44 PM
My internet dropped out, did you ask who Hawaiian shirt thought you were or??? When this happens again it’s okay to ask for the person’s Instagram or Twitter info. I usually just decline. #NoFlashPhotography! πŸ€ͺ😎
Brian D 5:24:09 PM
CAN! The bottom end on that Biz... whew. Great coming through the car speakers when I was driving . RIP
DSM 5:24:48 PM
Have never heard this Can jam. Very nice to water the houseplants to. Good evening everyone πŸ‘‹
Jon Solomon (host) 5:26:47 PM
They randomly came up to me and said "can I get a picture? You're that guy" and after they took it they were gone, only to be seen moments later on the jumbotron dancing.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:27:03 PM
It was very funny and super confusing. I wondered if he was doing that to everyone in the stadium.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:27:26 PM
This is off the new live CAN 3xLP deal. Sounds better on the radio than it did at home if that makes sense...
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 5:28:11 PM
Hello, Foxy Christine! 🦊
Shane Navoy 5:28:57 PM
...on second thought, maybe I do need to buy this live Can. (I saw it in the store and thought "how good can it be ?"). lord almighty, but, Jaki Liebezeit is deft !
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 5:29:37 PM
Hahaha! Oh, Hawaiian Shirt!
Shane Navoy 5:29:50 PM
... as deft as Biz was in the previous cut.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:32:31 PM
Shane, I mostly really enjoyed it (safe half of side F) but I didn't feel it was essential to own.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:32:58 PM
On the vinyl I believe this piece spans sides C *and* D!
Shane Navoy 5:35:55 PM
okie doke, Jon. your comment that "it sounds better on radio" is quite telling.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:36:19 PM
The whole thing is on Bandcamp so try before you buy!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:36:35 PM
Shane Navoy 5:36:55 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 5:37:21 PM
DSM 5:41:39 PM
Having to flip the record in the middle of this would kinda suck
Jon Solomon (host) 5:43:49 PM
Yeah, no real natural break. They put in an elegant fade if memory serves. The other pieces are each side-spanners.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:53:52 PM
You made it to the other side!
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 5:56:54 PM
It was a nice selection!
Patrick Rapa 6:00:46 PM
never really thought about how much Mac and Bitter Bitter Weeks are kinda similar
Patrick Rapa 6:01:30 PM
i could have phrased that better
Jon Solomon (host) 6:02:41 PM
Hadn't thought about that but this new song is right there.
Patrick Rapa 6:03:27 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:05:38 PM
I wonder if I will feel comfortable enough with an indoor rock show to go see Mac at Johnny Brenda's in September.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:05:51 PM
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:06:17 PM
Next September, yes
Jon Solomon (host) 6:06:29 PM
That is my hunch. Only shows on my docket are outdoors in open spaces.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:06:59 PM
That’s best.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:08:22 PM
this song rn af!
Patrick Rapa 6:14:56 PM
Hayden of 1-4-All-4-1?
Joe Moore 6:15:59 PM
Such a fun set of tunes. Those last two.... hot damn that was great.
Patrick Rapa 6:20:25 PM
DSM 6:22:21 PM
Doesn't agree

Jon Solomon (host) 6:26:24 PM
Thanks, Joe! Appreciate you tuning in. Glad to have you all in the chat tonight.
Chromex T38 6:33:24 PM
Thanks for exposing me to Can. Had a great ride home.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:34:04 PM
Oh wow. Sure thing, Chromex! I think you will enjoy their studio recordings very much.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:40:25 PM
These field recordings (which run into one another) are also a "name your price" download. Especially good in headphones with eyes shut!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:40:27 PM
Brian Kijewski 6:46:34 PM
Good evening Jon and chat!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:47:05 PM
Brian! I was thinking about you because I still have your station bookmarked but Friday afternoons have been unexpectedly busy.
Shane Navoy 6:48:00 PM
I was wondering why I never saw any of the Sahel Sounds releases in a store or at Forced Exposure. Then I looked at the site. Thanks for the link and for playing this, Jon.
Brian Kijewski 6:48:03 PM
Really dig that new Melenas cover. Heard for first time yesterday. I'd be curious to hear the original.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:53:31 PM
Oh, BrianKijewski! I caught a recent show with your Brother as special guest! That was fun times! Gotta get that station on Spinitron and have the chat feature! Cheers!
Brian Kijewski 6:54:22 PM
Thanks! I always appreciate a new listener.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:54:33 PM
Sahel Sounds is distributed by Secretly Group for physical releases.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:54:45 PM
So their hard copy stuff should be in stores.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:54:55 PM
As a fan of WPRP Friday programming I’m probably just lying to BrianKijewski. 😜
Jon Solomon (host) 6:55:15 PM
Brian, the original rules. A surprising number of bands have covered it. Prisonshake, Ooga Boogas, others I can't name right now...
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 6:56:10 PM
I saw Sahel Sounds has a cassette!? I’d like a cd or vinyl! I’ll keep looking!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:00:36 PM
This one might be tape only.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 7:02:44 PM
Let’s protest! Because I’m revolting!
Brian Kijewski 7:04:05 PM
Happy to hear you caught episode with my brother, it's been fun having the occasional guest on this year to program a couple sets
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 7:09:36 PM
DSM 7:10:46 PM
Good to hear the KV Violators rockin’ again. I’ll take freaktrain pt. 2 anytime
Jon Solomon (host) 7:12:30 PM
Yeah, this cover is stellar. Why they put out a shorter "radio edit" is anyone's guess. Let it ride!
DSM 7:14:22 PM
Curious to hear the rest of the comp
Jon Solomon (host) 7:15:44 PM
Yeah, the lineup has me curious. Could be some gems and also some disasters.
DSM 7:16:11 PM

I’m thinking that radio edit will go straight to XPN
Jon Solomon (host) 7:32:32 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:32:47 PM
The country singer?
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 7:37:15 PM
I’m leaving that one in the trash can
CharlieRoseIsBack 7:37:18 PM
That previous song seemed to use the same chords as "Once Upon a Time" by Smashing Pumpkins (from the Adore album).
jimbeaux 7:50:07 PM
Hey-yo mister Solomon! This session is divine.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 7:51:30 PM
DJ JonSolomon, many thanks for the very fine show! Big cheers and kind regards to you, Sir!
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 7:53:11 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:50 PM
Yeah, their songs only grow on me. I was not really familiar with them until this reissue!
Christine 🦊 7:53:55 PM
Thx, Jon πŸ™
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:06 PM
Great to hang out with all of you here tonight and I look forward to keeping it going on Mike's watch.
Rob from Maryland 7:54:12 PM
I enjoyed the part of the show I caught tonight. Thanks, Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:26 PM
All the stars are out tonight! You are each equally welcome!
Andrew Gruen 7:55:41 PM
thanks for another great show
CharlieRoseIsBack 7:56:06 PM
"Soot and Stars" by Smashing Pumpkins
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:03 PM
I'll have to compare and contrast CRiB!

Thanks Jon, always a great program to make, eat, and digest dinner too.
