Is this Real? 😂. Happy Friday
Mike Lupica 3:22:43 PM
Exciting day at the Barge in progress, so only chatting intermittently, but happy to report that console is powered up for the first time, both turntables and CD players have arrived, and the engineer and I are about to test the host microphone.
Mike Lupica 3:23:03 PM
I will stay locked at desk until next song for the BIG REVEAL.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:23:15 PM
The Barge is on the move!!!!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:23:21 PM
happy friday, RL!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:23:51 PM
Excellent Barge report, enjoy the French guys!
Mike Lupica 3:24:11 PM
Oh HELLS yes.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:24:56 PM
I hope the mic tests go well! Dreaming of a new console + turntables.
Mike Lupica 3:25:00 PM
I just mailordered a Les Thugs album two days ago which I never knew existed. Turns out they kicked out one more album (France only) a couple years after I thought they'd broken up.

Jen Redlights (host) 3:25:21 PM

hi Jen!

Some music was meant to start a revolution to.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:27:00 PM
More of that to come
Colin 3:27:06 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:27:10 PM
at least the music part
Mike Tropiano 3:30:05 PM
Hi Jen! enjoying the show as always (when I can listen). Maybe it's because I haven't been able to listen regularly lately, but two weeks in a row, you've started with "down" songs (loved both, especially Red Sprowes, which I need to investigate further). Hope all is well!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:31:55 PM
hi Mike! Very glad you've enjoyed it! I have been easing us in slowly, haven't I. :}
Jen Redlights (host) 3:32:47 PM
And DEFINITELY deep dive on Red Sparowes. They have a handful of records that are all terrific.
Mike Tropiano 3:38:45 PM
I will. Yes, you are luring us in, but we're easily swayed by the great music.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:39:31 PM
that's all part of my devious plan....

Love the TV Priest lp all the way through. And the debut too
Jen Redlights (host) 3:44:29 PM
hallo, Rob! @brian i like this one more every time i hear it
Andrew Gruen 3:46:29 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:46:34 PM
the best!!
Mike Tropiano 4:00:12 PM
That sounded like a venture into more "mature", jazzy and non-thrashy sounds.
Mike Tropiano 4:00:31 PM
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:01:38 PM
Clearly my plot to keep you on your toes is working out!
Rob from Maryland 4:02:58 PM
I LOVE this Primitives song!!! Thanks, Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:03:30 PM
haha you are welcome! It's SO GOOD

welcome! i love that the punchiest records were your cue.
Colin 4:19:15 PM
if the barge is up and running jen may have to travel east to do a pledge drive edition of hey you kids
Jen Redlights (host) 4:19:56 PM
I love that plan!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:20:23 PM
for our next trick, we should make the Barge float
Colin 4:21:28 PM
technically it is sorta already floating on the hot magma under the dirt.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:23:55 PM
WPRB pirate ship sounds like an amazing fundraiser goal. We'll call it a "stretch"
Colin 4:29:16 PM
the wprb pirate ship, crewed by the djs = 100% sinking because a dj's treasure are records and those get real heavy real fast and nobody wants to toss any of their collection off the plank.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:29:47 PM
HAHAHAHAHAH this is a good point you make
