Brian D 10:01:49 AM
From Frank's Geneva Farewell to Running Redlights like a Swiss watch...
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:02:07 AM
𓀤𓀥 high five
Jen (host) 10:02:43 AM
That might have been our best yet, Dave!
the_dude 10:03:06 AM
It was a good one! Had to double check time

Funky Maserati?
Jen (host) 10:09:37 AM
Oh wow , you are on point there, Andy! Slightly less Tron, more spooky.
Christine 🦊 10:10:48 AM
I wish I could have heard the transition; dang work call...
Christine 🦊 10:11:07 AM
Morning, Jen! 🚦🏃
Jen (host) 10:12:32 AM
I’ll put the archive up eventually…but you’re here now! Hi!
jimbeaux 10:14:08 AM
Christine, just block out your Friday calendar from 9:55-10:05. Call it "Critical Transitions Training"
Christine 🦊 10:15:40 AM
Did he just call out Levittown?
Christine 🦊 10:15:57 AM
@jimbeaux, good advice.
Brian D 10:16:02 AM
Not that Levittown I would assume Long Island one
Brian D 10:16:30 AM
My hometown! The Pa one that is.
Christine 🦊 10:17:49 AM
@Brian, oh right. I immediately thought of "our" Levittown.
Brian D 10:18:26 AM
Yeah! He called out BQE and some other Long Island terms a bit later i think
Colin 10:18:32 AM
I had to pop over to this tab to see who be talking bout Levittown.
Colin 10:19:52 AM
It's like that Billy J song about Allentown. We are all like, yup, our Allentown.
Jen (host) 10:20:50 AM
We can all be Levittown ;)
Colin 10:22:57 AM
and the lord said unto the people, all is Levittown, go fourth and mow lawns, sell lemonade , and run all the red lightiths.
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:23:46 AM
@ Colin HA! Good one! :-))
Christine 🦊 10:27:08 AM
Brian D 10:29:00 AM
Chuck Berry!
the_dude 10:29:38 AM
Question to anyone who may know, regarding monthly donations, if I'm already a monthly donor, do these stack on top of each other or does the new one replace the old one?
Brian D 10:30:15 AM
Billy Joel was going to title the song Allentown as Levittown at first. Did not flow as well
Brian D 10:31:02 AM
True. But yes Billy was referring to NY
Jen (host) 10:31:41 AM
Hi, The_dude - thank you! You can always adjust your monthly amount or add a née one-off, but you won’t have multiple monthly streams (unless I suppose you want one)
Brian D 10:31:43 AM
Now Allentown, New Jersey there's a nice little town.
Colin 10:33:52 AM
@ dude, I have done one-off donations on top of my monthly. especially if there is some sweet swag I want to add to my collection.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:34:16 AM
Dude, you can increase your monthly pledge by emailing with your name, new pledge amount and number. That should replace the old amount.
Christine 🦊 10:34:22 AM
*boogie intensifies*
Jen (host) 10:34:57 AM
In our drive this month, monthly donors will automatically receive all the swag!
the_dude 10:35:51 AM
Cool, thanks for the answers everyone!
Brian D 10:38:05 AM
This is a fun set!
Colin 10:38:30 AM
Ha bri, beat me, but this set is pure juice!
Christine 🦊 10:39:01 AM
🔥🔥🔥 💄 💅
Jen (host) 10:39:52 AM
Yeeeeehaw! Glad you’re into it!
Colin 10:40:11 AM
Fun Things is new to me and I'm loving it!
Jen (host) 10:41:15 AM
Sooooooo great
Guelo 10:41:21 AM
Christine 🦊 10:41:48 AM
Let's see how the neighbors like it...
Jen (host) 10:48:02 AM
I bet they like this one!
Mike Lupica 10:48:54 AM
CAN CONFIRM THAT MY NEIGHBORS DO NOT LIKE SOUL PATROL (which is currently blasting out of my open garage door onto the street...)
Jen (host) 10:49:15 AM
Jen (host) 10:49:35 AM
They’re going to skip your house at Halloween for sure
Christine 🦊 10:51:50 AM
Pearls before swine...
Mike Lupica 10:53:55 AM
No way, my house is the only one that shoots Mummies and Cramps videos onto the garage door during prime trick or treat hours!
Jen (host) 10:54:53 AM
Andy Wing 11:00:19 AM
Latest trick or treat meme, Gritty riding a dinosaur skeleton in someone's front yard, lol.
Brian D 11:01:20 AM
Gritty McDuff
Mike Lupica 11:06:14 AM
This song is activating my Radio Birdman sensors...
Jen (host) 11:07:08 AM
Mike Lupica 11:08:51 AM
I like how the singer just went all Mark (uh) E. (uh) Smith (uh) in that last vocal delivery.
Christine 🦊 11:09:19 AM
Jen (host) 11:09:30 AM
I’m with you! That album is awesome.
Brian D 11:14:40 AM
I heard that Mark E Smitht-ish delivery too
Christine 🦊 11:17:35 AM
Christine 🦊 11:18:11 AM
Coincidentally, I was just texting my sister-in-law, who we call LA. Weird.....
Brian D 11:20:14 AM
Mike Lupica 11:21:47 AM
Oh my god, Something Girl I love this song!
Colin 11:22:17 AM
I just loaded this album into my car ipod last night. wwwhhhhoooaaaaa!
Jen (host) 11:23:42 AM
Whoa, you guys!!
Jen (host) 11:24:05 AM
The mind meld worked!
Mike Lupica 11:24:53 AM
IIRC, every song on that record smokes more than the single (which was, in and of itself, and good enough song.)
Brian D 11:25:45 AM
friend or foe more classics! Marco Pirroni on that gee-tar
Mike Lupica 11:28:04 AM
Culture Shock put out a record in 1998? Are there any songs about the poll tax?
Brian D 11:28:44 AM
Or songs about pole cats? I'll take those too
Brian D 11:30:53 AM
Aww yeah!
Colin 11:31:06 AM
Lupica's neighbors are like again really more sniffers?
Colin 11:31:22 AM
but one can never have enough sniffers
Colin 11:32:13 AM
It was mentioned they are playing the bowery in december, does that mean a philly area show too?
Mike Lupica 11:34:30 AM
I would sacrifice several internal organs for a Bellrays/Amyl & the Sniffers double-header.
Jen (host) 11:35:55 AM
I don’t know if I’d need to see any shows after that.
Jen (host) 11:36:26 AM
Looks like Amyl and team are doing Brooklyn only before Europe. Sigh.
Christine 🦊 11:38:01 AM
Looks like they're stopping in for just one night. A shame. Philly needs them!
Mike Lupica 11:38:31 AM
My favorite memory of seeing the Bellrays is how there was this obnoxious little prick shoving everyone at the front of the stage. (Bellrays vocalist) Lisa grabbed him by the mohawk, held him fast, and screamed the lyrics to an entire song directly into his face for a good three minutes. That kid looked like a scared animal who'd shat its pants when she was done with him, and deservedly so.
Jen (host) 11:40:18 AM
Hahahahaha I never got to see them but now will think only of scared punks when I do.
Mike Lupica 11:42:52 AM
Maxwell's, probably sometime in 2001 or 2002? Person I hitched a ride to the club with also turned the wrong way into oncoming highway traffic on the way to the show. Memorable night, that kid wasn't the only one who soiled his trousers,
Andy Wing 11:45:27 AM
Amyl and Smoke Bellow seem to be taking over independent radio this month.
Colin 11:45:35 AM
Grab a punk by the mohawk sounds like a step in s survival guide.
Colin 11:46:55 AM
I made my way to the show and all I got got was soiled pants, twice...and crumpled mohawk.
Jen (host) 11:47:00 AM
Mike - holy shit! Colin - totally is. Andy, are we surprised?
Jen (host) 11:47:25 AM
Independent radio has great taste ;)
Christine 🦊 11:48:20 AM
Come for the music, stay for the harrowing and hilarious anecdotes. ⭐
Andy Wing 11:52:01 AM
More mellow Boys Against Girls?
Guelo 11:52:20 AM
luv this
Christine 🦊 11:55:59 AM
Thx, Jen.🚦You ripped it UP
Jen (host) 11:57:01 AM
Awesome, that was so fun - thanks for being here, everyone!
Colin 11:57:45 AM
Thanks as always. lots of great tunes and new bands to check it!
Jen (host) 11:57:55 AM
Funny story, which also suggests my age: I quoted this song in my high school yearbook for my “senior quote” or some nonsense.
Brian D 11:58:12 AM
Classics upon classics! Great show Jen! Have a great weekend all
Jen (host) 11:58:20 AM
Colin, I love to hear that! Thanks!💥
