Awesome! I learned to love Carbon in that direction.
Mike Tropiano 10:21:33 AM
That's a diverse line-up, if

I got this cool drone LP from Anla Courtis which led me to Reynols who happened to have material on Carbon that I found when I was getting the Double Wig album. All of which are awesome.

Mike Tropiano 10:34:52 AM
Hey Colin, I think your bassist was one of my students.
Mike Tropiano 10:37:11 AM
Jen, everything you're playing today is giving me a sense of deja vu, like it's remin
Mike Tropiano 10:37:46 AM
...like it's sounding like something else I can't quite place.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:37:51 AM
Ha is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Mike Tropiano 10:39:14 AM
Good, just frustrating that my memory is so clouded today.

Used to listen to David Johansen's show on satellite. Good mix. He's got toes in many pools. Showed up in Jim White's Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus film playing some folky country stuff. Good flick

Was a cool little spot it seemed. My wife's fam liked it too back when. We did find a nice little spot for a beer n seafood right on the boardwalk. Was our last stop before the airport for the plane home. Get a few more hours of sun in.. don't know when we'll head back to that state. I see Trenton to Ft Laud flights like $30 one day now ha

Jon Solomon 11:14:27 AM
Jen, hearing Eastern Dark as I got in the car and Moving Targets as I walked in the door of my home is almost unfair.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:14:56 AM
Well, I was trying to summon you, of course. Glad it worked! Hi!
Mike Tropiano 11:15:38 AM
I so rarely get to listen to the entire show (indulging my free time today) that I don't get to "feel" the scope of these cherished Friday morning shows.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:16:25 AM
Aw Mike, so awesome that you can hang out today!
Jon Solomon 11:17:43 AM
In between, the last of the donor premiums from the Membership Drive were dropped off at the shipping depot so hopefully they'll all be in everyone's hands sooner than expected!!

Richard from Rocky Hill 11:19:10 AM
@ Jen Redlights (host) & Jon Solomon Hey, where can I get cool band names like "Alien Nosejob," "The Desperate Bicycles" or "Pianos Become the Teeth"? I'd prefer to get one locally but I guess I'll order from Amazon if I absolutely have to ...
Jen Redlights (host) 11:19:16 AM
Jon, I can’t wait for my goodies! Brian, 🤘🏻
Jen Redlights (host) 11:19:59 AM
Clever band names = wacky party games
Mike Tropiano 11:20:42 AM
Thanks Jen....2023 is starting so morsels, I've been worrying about Ozzy's health *or lack of it).
Jen Redlights (host) 11:20:54 AM
Or for the records? Bandcamp and your local shoppe to start, certainly!
Jon Solomon 11:20:58 AM
Richard, I have a bunch of spare free band names lying around. Can do a local drop off.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:21:14 AM
I have no clever names but a LOT of horrible ones
Mike Tropiano 11:21:25 AM
Jen Redlights (host) 11:21:28 AM
Mike, it’s not looking good, but let’s hope
Rofflestomp 11:21:42 AM
I so forgot how much I love the riff of this song.
Brian D 11:21:50 AM
Then add to that the phrase allegedly uttered by Lou Reed about recording preferences: Cymbals Eat Guitars. Used well as a band name
Jen Redlights (host) 11:22:45 AM
Roffle, me too! Decided about a minute ago that this is actually my fave Sabbath song
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:23:12 AM
@ Jon Solomon Thanks for the band name dropoff offer, but I'd prefer a very discrete mailing in a plain brown envelope ... IF it would fit ... ;-))
Brian D 11:24:37 AM
Back in the 00s some band should have used The Plural Nouns. Or any decade. But there were quite a bunch of The ___s back about 20 yrs ago especially in the glut of garage revival
Brian D 11:25:22 AM
Fade to Geeze..
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:26:42 AM
@ Jen Redlights (host) Jon Solomon GREAT NEWS! I received my WPRB donation goodies yesterday. I have the amazing beer bottle opener (and I don't even drink!) and the astonishing doleful-basset-hound-with-2-slices-of-pizza sticker! For joy!
Jon Solomon 11:27:09 AM
Richard, your new band is actually named Discrete Envelope!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:27:27 AM
Jon Solomon 11:27:40 AM
Incredible news. You're the first to confirm receiving a package, Richard. I use my bottle opener for Topo Chico.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:27:49 AM
YESSS, Richard!
Colin 11:28:32 AM
I've been looking at every surface everywhere for the perfect place to apply my pizza dog sticker.
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:29:36 AM
It's a tough choice between Cymbals Eat Guitars and Discreet Envelope, but my unintentional creativity (the best kind, eh?) wins out -- If I ever kick my bluegrass habit and start a garage band, it's definitely gonna be Discrete Envelope! :-))
