Happy Saturday, octopi!
Christine 🦊 6:13:45 PM
Hey Dan 🐙 🌊 🦑
Dan Ruccia (host) 6:14:29 PM
Howdy Christine!
Christine 🦊 6:14:29 PM
Please tell me you weren't awake all week!
Dan Ruccia (host) 6:14:58 PM
I was not, thankfully. Though it probably would make for an interesting radio show
Alan Pasnyk 6:15:50 PM
@ Christine Maybe he meant the 🐙 was awake all week..
Dan Ruccia (host) 6:16:15 PM
The octopus of tomorrow knows all and thus never sleeps
Dan Ruccia (host) 6:16:37 PM
It may or may not be an elder god
Christine 🦊 6:20:29 PM
@Alan, Oh, the *cephalopods* stay awake....OK
Christine 🦊 6:21:36 PM
We definitely do *not* want to perturb the Elder Gods...
Alan Pasnyk 6:21:44 PM
@ Christine: Astronomer Octupi ...Must have alien like minds..
Alan Pasnyk 6:22:28 PM
Hi Dan!!! Really diggin' this Julia, has a Celtic like sound to me
Christine 🦊 6:22:29 PM
@Alan, I like that image. Though it is slightly terrifying
Dan Ruccia (host) 6:25:23 PM
@Alan It's really great! I just recently stumbled across this album, and its vibe is so spot on
Christine 🦊 6:39:43 PM
🧛🏼 🧛🏻 🧛🏻‍♂️ 🧛🏿‍♂️ 🧛‍♀️ The pods are opening up...
Alan Pasnyk 6:45:31 PM
The Great thing about being an Octopus, is that you don't have to shave or take a shower.. But I do! So I'll be switching to the FM in the bathroom bcnu Christine & Dan! 💦💦🎶🎶🎶
Christine 🦊 6:46:37 PM
Talk to you later, Alan! 🐙 🚿
Alan Pasnyk 6:46:42 PM
❤️💛💚 Deborah Harry!!!
Dan Ruccia (host) 6:47:16 PM
Happy non-octopus activities, Alan!
Alan Pasnyk 6:47:30 PM
bcnu Christine! 🌸😊🌟☀️🌸😊
Christine 🦊 7:13:04 PM
💜💜💜 Hailu Mergia & The Walias Band! My current fave new album.
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:14:50 PM
So good!
Christine 🦊 7:28:48 PM
"Octopuses are the superstars of their invertebrates because of their astonishing intelligence." ⭐"Octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish are true aliens with respect to us. No other intelligent animal is as far from us on the tree of life."

Dan Ruccia (host) 7:34:11 PM
Oooo. I don't think I've seen that particular article about the wonders of the octopus
Commie Francis 7:44:43 PM
Curses i missed comus
Commie Francis 7:44:51 PM
But here in time for momus
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:45:09 PM
I wonder if there are any other _omus bands?
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:45:35 PM
And I suppose I really did this wrong by not ending the show with Momus...
Commie Francis 7:45:57 PM
Yeah i was just saying the same thing!
Commie Francis 7:46:04 PM
Ya blew it ruccia
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:46:36 PM
Suppose I gotta turn in my DJ card...
Christine 🦊 7:47:26 PM
There's Domus, a Swedish duo. I've not heard their music; I just spotted them on Bandcamp.
Commie Francis 7:47:58 PM
All i can think is hippopotamus but not quite
Commie Francis 7:48:18 PM
The way Flanders and Swann pronounce it would work
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:50:08 PM
There's apparently a traditional Irish group called Nomos
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:50:30 PM
(And I swear there's a Brooklyn afrobeat band which has a similar name but I can't remember)
Christine 🦊 7:50:57 PM
Nice
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:51:12 PM
(That's Nomo, not Nomos!)
Commie Francis 7:53:06 PM

Dan Ruccia (host) 7:55:34 PM
And glad to get back that missing tenth, Commie. They add up!
Christine 🦊 7:55:34 PM

Dan Ruccia (host) 7:56:58 PM
And now to go rip my not-very-assistant-like assistant DJ from her Avatar, the Last Airbender marathon to get her ready for bed
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:57:50 PM
@christine whew, that's a relief. You never quite know when those DJ pop quizzes will come up...
Dan Ruccia (host) 7:58:29 PM
Thanks for listening, everyone! You're in excellent hands with Commie for the next 3 hours
