Rob from Maryland 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 8:38:59 PM
We had a tornado warning Thursday afternoon in our county, but it was about 10 miles north of us and moving northeast. I don't know if there was an actual tornado. Better safe than sorry.

Commie Francis (host) 9:09:50 PM
my mic is pretty good at not picking up ambient noise but it was VERY loud
richard lyons 9:10:43 PM
I didn't but I don't have my earbuds in.
richard lyons 9:14:11 PM

Commie Francis (host) 9:27:13 PM
i bet people said that to him a lot
ROFFLESTOMP 9:28:44 PM
I did not hear the fireworks, just the FU war and what you're all about! Which I wholly concur with!
richard lyons 9:29:21 PM
Hi jimbeaux!
ROFFLESTOMP 9:35:53 PM
I thought this was X at first.
Commie Francis (host) 9:36:48 PM
this???
ROFFLESTOMP 9:37:23 PM
The Wartburgs piece.
Commie Francis (host) 9:37:38 PM
ohhhh ok
Commie Francis (host) 9:37:52 PM
i'm a little ahead of you especially if you're listening online
ROFFLESTOMP 9:38:32 PM
Yea, I am locked into the fiber world for listening.
ROFFLESTOMP 9:39:37 PM
I can barely get the signal in the University district at PENN.. Argh!

Hello Commie F!
Commie Francis (host) 9:43:08 PM
hi bo!
Ambrose Hughes 9:44:56 PM
Sorry I'm late to the party ...was thinking Eaton Rifles by The Jam, does that fit?
Commie Francis (host) 9:45:38 PM
i love that song but i always interpreted it as being about a school shooting which um
ROFFLESTOMP 9:50:23 PM
E gads! The call up is brute and sad enough in Europe as it is. Friggin' nonsense.
Ambrose Hughes 9:51:03 PM
Oh! Hmm ...I don't think so, more about wealthy elitists sending young boys from economically challenged backgrounds of to fight for (king and country), kind of what still goes on to this day.
Commie Francis (host) 9:51:15 PM
oh that is probably right
Ambrose Hughes 9:52:19 PM
This song is perfect, thank you!
Commie Francis (host) 9:52:51 PM
so it's kind of a more subtle version of "tank"
Commie Francis (host) 9:52:58 PM
or "tin soldiers"
ROFFLESTOMP 9:54:07 PM
Oh wow "One Tin Soldier"! What a Billie Jack throwback! :)
Ambrose Hughes 9:54:15 PM
That's a fair comparison.
Commie Francis (host) 9:54:36 PM
tin soldiers by stiff little fingers! but i love one tin soldier i will not lie
ROFFLESTOMP 9:54:52 PM
Ah
Commie Francis (host) 9:55:04 PM

ROFFLESTOMP 10:09:27 PM
Certianly .:)
Commie Francis (host) 10:09:39 PM
but honestly it sounds like it was pretty uncomfortable in many ways for the dudes, and i think that's part of the art
ROFFLESTOMP 10:10:18 PM
Folks are weird with their stuff, that's for sure.
Ossy Hyouka 10:10:23 PM
LOOOOOL, Rofflestomp!

Commie Francis (host) 10:18:05 PM

Commie Francis (host) 10:18:20 PM

ROFFLESTOMP 10:18:26 PM
So true!
ROFFLESTOMP 10:18:48 PM

ROFFLESTOMP 10:21:24 PM
