I'll take some too beaux! And yes, actually got cold on my ride today, so maybe a cappuccino to start the day?
Kentman 7:34:39 AM
Dave, I was wondering about why a few DJs don't have chats open. Is that a personal preference on their part, or is a budgetary issue?
jimbeaux 7:34:53 AM
Ooh, just had a stovetop cappuccino!
Brian D 7:36:14 AM
Good morning all. 49 on the car thermo. All about the numbers. Constellation Cuervo!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:36:28 AM
The chat is available to all DJs. I can only speculate why some do not use it. Some pre-recording DJs may simply be unavailable while the show airs.

Oooo hot tea… good idea. Been massively resonating with this morning mood. Guten Morgen!

I'm unaware as usual. Thanks for alerting the others, dude.
Brian D 8:51:55 AM
We tailgated the end of Primus concert last week in Asbury Pk. Heard the rumblings of Southbound Pachyderm & some solos during encores. Then it was Gene Wilder over the PA saying goodnight via pure imagination....
the_dude 8:53:04 AM
Ha we'll get you out one day Dave! And damn yeah just tailgating sounds fun, did that with willy Nelson at the Mann recently. Idk if tailgating the Met would work though
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:53:44 AM
"I'm busy that day", as Mr. M would no doubt have said.
Brian D 8:54:15 AM
Ya they are doing a full lp cover of Rush "Farewell to Kings" this tour. 1st set Primus hits and rarities and cool segues etc. 2nd set Rush Kings lp. Encores multiple.
Brian D 8:55:06 AM
setlist dot fm has the stats. Been checking that out.
Christine 🦊 8:56:01 AM
The Met is a beautiful venue with great acoustics. I hope to get back there in 2022.
Brian D 9:02:31 AM
97 sounds like a reissue date on the Steve Vai. I think that was orig released early 90s?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:03:14 AM
You are correct, Brian. I get mixed up a lot. Plus they use this tiny tiny font on the CDs that I can barely read.
Brian D 9:03:59 AM
Spinitron actually got it right 1990 i see.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:04:32 AM
For a change, yeah. Usually it defaults to some random rerelease date.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:04:53 AM
Like this Djam Karet for example.
Brian D 9:07:21 AM
Out out djam karet spot....
Christine 🦊 9:08:24 AM
Sounds like Spinitron makes a lot of work for the DJs; having to double-check it like you're babysitting a drunk pixie. 🧚‍♀️
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:09:33 AM
We generally do not obsess over these dates. It ultimately doesn't matter a whole lot.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:11:08 AM
It actually makes things easier when it prepopulates the fields.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:11:52 AM
It takes much more time adding descriptions and photos.
Christine 🦊 9:16:03 AM
Those two features are often the best part of the playlist, imo. Like the side-by-side of the galaxy and hurricane.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:17:07 AM
🙏. I like to see those added details, too. Puts the music in better perspective.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:17:37 AM

Brian D 9:18:54 AM
Yes Dave, Deirdre, Jon Sol, LizBot, Paxn Rosasolis and many others have some great eye candy in chat
Brian D 9:21:09 AM
This 1980 FZ band & release really just so cool. Loved when this came out (2007 ... ahem Spinitron)
Brian D 9:21:59 AM
Just some great interplay . Really listening to each other it seems
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:23:29 AM
