For regular listeners of The New Abnormal, next week I will be airing the long promised retrospective of Rock Progressivo Italiano (RPI).
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:17:19 AM
But I can tell already it'll have to spill over into a second week because there's just too much RPI music to go over.

Thanks, Mr. M.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:34:04 AM
Also tomorrow, 9:00 a.m. to noon, I'm presenting a special "Sangeet", featuring all westerners performing Indian Classical Music.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 7:37:39 AM
Wow, I’d like to catch that show too! 6️⃣🅰️Ⓜ️❗️
Christine 🦊 7:37:46 AM
Dave, thanks for the heads-up about Sangeet tomorrow morning. 🌅
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:39:40 AM
Not sure how to advertise those shows. I do not participate in any social media outside of this chat room.
Krista 7:44:15 AM
Good morning, nice to hear your selections this morning!
Christine 🦊 7:47:00 AM
Perhaps someone on the WPRB staff could put out the good word about Sangeet tomorrow & The New Abnormal next week on the WPRB Facebook page. 💻 I don't know if PRB has presence on Instragram, Twitter, and other social media platforms because I don't have them.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:47:50 AM
Thanks, Krista. Glad you are able to listen this morning.
Christine 🦊 7:48:42 AM
@Krista, good morning 🌅 Did you all ride out the storm OK yesterday?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:49:18 AM
I did tell the program director, but am not sure if there has been any followup. (DTO often does not register on radar.)
Brian D 7:57:51 AM
Good morning all. I liked that Nils Petter Molvær track. I think that was the one that sounded a bit Hassell-ish. Great show
Brian D 7:58:59 AM
And Popul Vuh was great for coffee / breakfast time acclimating to the begin of the day
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:59:46 AM
Good morning, Brian. Correct about Nils Petter Molvær; he is one of the premier Hassell clones. And that wasn't even his most hasselliest.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 8:00:56 AM
WPRB needs a Social Media Director. (👃👆Not It!) There are all the social media accounts for the station including a Linktree and a Listener Newsletter. I don’t see posts for special upcoming shows with DJ DaveTheObscure. This is an outrage.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:02:15 AM
As I said, DTO often has no radar signature.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 8:03:15 AM
Oh, I didn’t see that part of the message 🤪
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:03:36 AM
Exactly my point, Mr. M!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 8:04:10 AM
What was that again??? What’s the subject??
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:04:22 AM
Did someone say something?
Christine 🦊 8:05:13 AM
Dave? He's not here!

Yvette Young's album art for the COVET album is gorgeous.

Indeed. She is quite talented.

With 2 guys named Brian/Bryan, how could they NOT be fantastic?
Brian D 8:50:13 AM
Yvette's color & texture of playing is really interesting. Glad you put them in the mix. Found out about them here
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:52:26 AM
Yes, Brian, Covet's mathrock is one of the most virtuosic. And less harsh than others.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:55:18 AM

Hello, Dave the Notable! I just LOVE the "American Goth Rockers" artwork (and surely that must be the painting's title ...) on your show's WPRB page this morning. And the music selections are very fine indeed, as per usual. Major smiles! :-))

they are both distance runners, and their music represents the trancelike flow states and extreme physical exertion associated with that activity.

wow thats amazing. super interesting
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:47:11 AM
@uno clay: So the 'bliss' section you heard was sort of like their runner's high.

i guess the beginning part was where they were running through a chinatown noir part of town
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:52:42 AM
Quite possibly.
