Deserrrrttttt...... deserted.... cut in stream
Captain Ahab (host) 3:02:37 PM
Dang
deirdre dionysiac (1) 3:03:00 PM
I'm hearing the tunes back on just now
Brian D 3:03:02 PM
Back on!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:03:05 PM
WOO
deirdre dionysiac (1) 3:03:49 PM
think it's cutting back and forth from the jazz to your stuff in weird fashion now
Brian D 3:03:53 PM
I like this funky Istanbul.. a little chopped up... some cuts skips dropping out tho
Mike Lupica 3:04:39 PM
Capt Ahab, try dropping your bitrate to 192 kbps
Captain Ahab (host) 3:05:54 PM
Ok will do that
Mike Lupica 3:06:34 PM
You will likely need to disconnect from the server, drop the bitrate, and then reconnect.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:06:40 PM
I cant do it will while streaming right?
Captain Ahab (host) 3:06:45 PM
Right
Mike Lupica 3:06:55 PM
Right
Captain Ahab (host) 3:06:57 PM
Ok fingers crossed
Captain Ahab (host) 3:07:32 PM
Ok done
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 3:07:46 PM
Sounds like a loose wire, or bad connection.
Mike Lupica 3:08:30 PM
Better now!
Jon Solomon 3:08:32 PM
Far fewer cut-outs over the past sixty seconds than when I first tuned in.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:08:41 PM
Am making the rounds making sure everyone's off the wifi, I told them but have reminded
Selecta Jerry 3:08:50 PM
Stormy seas captain! Steady as she goes! 🏴‍☠️⚓️
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:08:55 PM
Have you tried turning it off and then back on again?? -The I.T. Crowd
Brian D 3:09:18 PM
don't want to jynx but steady going & sounding good for a while now....
Brian D 3:10:03 PM
Yeah the thunder just struck Jerry! Did you hear Deirdre's sacramental set?
Selecta Jerry 3:10:39 PM
Sorry No i was out cheating on wprb
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:11:42 PM
Good job, Captain Ahab! Cheers to MikeLupica!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:12:28 PM
Thanks Mike!
Selecta Jerry 3:13:34 PM
Thats why she is the Captain ! 🎶🔊
Mike Lupica 3:13:39 PM
Right on! If you start cutting out again, you can drop your bitrate to 128 but below that is gonna start to sound crappy on FM. But you've been steady and clear for a while now so hopefully out of the woods for the rest of your show.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:13:52 PM
Roger
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:14:46 PM
Very stable now! Thumbs way up!
Jason DiVirgilio 3:16:53 PM
Oooooh new stuff from Baron Crane!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:22:21 PM
Ok so I feel a bit more relaxed now
Captain Ahab (host) 3:22:27 PM
How is everyone!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:22:31 PM
/?
Jon Solomon 3:23:29 PM
Enjoy the show, glad your connection is more stable and waiting on a possible storm to roll through that could cause myriad other issues!
Teresa Peacock 3:23:34 PM
Hi everyone and happy Wednesday afternoon! I love this Baron Crane -- does the drum section remind anyone else of '21st Century Schizoid Man' with that 1-2-1-2-3 alternating beat?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:25:16 PM
Happy to be here! Enjoying the tunes! How are you, DJ Captain Ahab???
Colin 3:26:15 PM
good afternoon and that baron crane track kinda ruled. southern montco pa is getting the storm now.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:27:31 PM
Hi Teresa! Glad you liked it, I don't have the ear to pick up that kind of thing (sadly) but COOL
Captain Ahab (host) 3:27:58 PM
I'm glad to be here too, in Desert Cruising zone
Captain Ahab (host) 3:28:08 PM
Sad about the disconnections earlier but oh well
Captain Ahab (host) 3:28:30 PM
There is some baklava waiting for me after the show
Captain Ahab (host) 3:28:37 PM
So I have that going for e
Captain Ahab (host) 3:28:40 PM
*me
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:29:54 PM
Oh yum, baklava! 😋
Jason DiVirgilio 3:31:09 PM
lol @ "weekly embargo on the wifi".
Captain Ahab (host) 3:35:49 PM
It's true! I gotta hoard all them MBPS for Desert Cruising
sean burns 3:39:34 PM
WPRB should look into dropping that PSA about finding safe online drugs. Or at least change one of the criteria for safety being a United States address.
sean burns 3:40:09 PM
I am on an expensive drug Xarelto that would cost me a little under $17 a pill if I bought the US version. Once I get from Canada made in Turkey cost $4.50 each
sean burns 3:40:38 PM
Same exact drug, manufactured for the overseas market
sean burns 3:40:58 PM
There are plenty of other good PSAs out there
Captain Ahab (host) 3:41:44 PM
Hey Sean, thanks for your input, I'll share it with the team
Jon Solomon 3:54:51 PM
X cover! Nice.
Brian D 3:55:40 PM
Homage to the LP cover too. Nice nice
Teresa Peacock 3:56:42 PM
This is great! I just looked it up and confirm that Violet is the daughter of Dave Grohl (he of the Nirvana)
Captain Ahab (host) 3:57:12 PM
She is 15/16!!!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:57:20 PM
So talented
Teresa Peacock 3:58:04 PM
Truly! Must be the genes!
Christine 🦊 4:02:27 PM
Great vibes to drive to. 🚗 Thanks, Cap'n Ahab! (I am no longer driving)
Captain Ahab (host) 4:03:49 PM
Thanks Christine! I approve of the not prb-chatting while driving approach :)
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:13:01 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:51 PM
I knooooooow
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:53 PM

-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:17:52 PM
The entire ALBUM⁉️ Fun timez.
Brian D 4:18:41 PM
X. But not The Ex. Nor The X. So many....
Captain Ahab (host) 4:20:26 PM
Ah my bad! Just X, noted
the_dude 4:33:23 PM
all hail king woman!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:34:01 PM
This one's for you Brian!
DSM 4:34:04 PM
Yah that King Woman was tight!
Brian D 4:34:04 PM
So confusing these X and Ex bands all over the world.
Brian D 4:34:31 PM
Oh thank you Ahab! I did mention them.
Jason DiVirgilio 4:55:43 PM
Can everyone picture Captain going around the house "THE WIFI EMBARGO HAS ENDED! Desert Cruising fans thank you for your sacrifice."
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:55:58 PM
Haha
Brian D 4:56:07 PM
Wednesday is one helluva day
Brian D 4:56:17 PM
Great time Ahab!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:56:33 PM

ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 4:56:45 PM
Really liked discovering Congulus.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:56:57 PM
Enjoy the baklava!!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:57:15 PM
Ah yes I forgot about the baklava!!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:57:57 PM
Never Forget the BAKLAVA
Jason DiVirgilio 4:58:20 PM
mmmm, baklava. Great show, glad you persevered the outages!
