time for syrupy sounds!
PiGuy 10:05:51 AM
Hope my 10am Zoom is short so I can hear and not just read what is playing. Thanks for the effort Jeff.
JeffB (host) 10:05:53 AM
so glad you're here :)
ricklistens 10:06:00 AM
i don’t mind
JeffB (host) 10:06:37 AM
Thank Pi. I'll post mixcloud after as usual... Hi Jamie! Hi Dash! Greeting Rick!

Richard Weinfeld 10:15:16 AM
G’morning. Listening live for a change.
ricklistens 10:19:08 AM
English is very hard
JeffB (host) 10:20:21 AM
G'mornin Rich! Listening terrestrially i hope.
Richard Weinfeld 10:23:29 AM
Yes. Staying on earth for a while, still. No driving last night, so up by 10 instead of noon.
Jamie Cohen (1) 10:23:33 AM
such grrooovvy syrup this morning. I knew you could fit GG in....
JeffB (host) 10:26:20 AM
they're a band that never fit into our post punk mentality.. yet Eno did..
JeffB (host) 10:27:12 AM
@Rich where/why are you usually driving late at night?
Bruce Pierce 10:32:07 AM
good morning everyone!
JeffB (host) 10:35:07 AM
hey Bruce!
DJ Simon 10:40:39 AM
Hiya Jeff, et al.
JeffB (host) 10:40:55 AM
'allo DJS !
Dash_Riprock 10:53:23 AM
DJ Simon , hello .
Richard Weinfeld 10:59:27 AM
Lyft driver. I’m retired and need to be productive. Louisville is a late night town with 4:00am bar closing and many night shift workers. Works with my natural instincts as a night owl.
Jorge Armando Castro 11:01:07 AM
Good morning JeffB...Armando here...lonnnnnnng time listener of the 'Z...happy to be listening to 'Z syrup while doing odds and ends around the house...what a joy to be retired.
Jorge Armando Castro 11:01:52 AM
Hi PiGuy. Hi DJSimon. Love your (and James's) show yesterday.
PiGuy 11:02:58 AM
Welcome back Jorge. @JeffB, this sounds like Temples, a lot.
JeffB (host) 11:02:59 AM
Right behind you in the retired life Jorge.. just a few more years.. or more.
JeffB (host) 11:03:36 AM
@PiGuy yeah it does.. funny 'cause Temples have a new song that I decided NOT to play..
JeffB (host) 11:04:52 AM
@Richard - damn everyone's retired ! I'm juggling working and doing this ZBC show right now. Hope it's all going well for you.
PiGuy 11:04:59 AM
Master of retrieval that you are, Jeff, I half expected to hear Temples next.
Jorge Armando Castro 11:05:54 AM
I have a question: is the majority of 'Z listeners retired folk? If so, I wouldn't know what to think...hahaha...is it great?...are the twenty-somethings asleep with their cell phones? opinions.
PiGuy 11:06:46 AM
Favorite Bongos song. Think I saw them on this tour.
PiGuy 11:07:37 AM
@Jorge, I would guess no one listening to this show is under 40.
JeffB (host) 11:07:40 AM
@Jorge - Sadly twenty somethings aren't conditioned to use terrestrial radio.
JeffB (host) 11:10:03 AM
kind of why i want students to do shows on ZBC. all early 20's. We may not like what they play. That's OK. WZBC is their station, I get out of their way. WZBC wouldn't exist without them.
ricklistens 11:10:03 AM
that’s what the virus is for ....kill the old and poor
Jorge Armando Castro 11:10:54 AM
Sooooo...does this mean that the current college generation (at least half born in this century) just ain't hip? Am I, are we, hipper than they are?
ricklistens 11:12:29 AM
new world order
Jorge Armando Castro 11:12:46 AM
Problem is that they play the same stuff that commercial stations play...it seems to me.
JeffB (host) 11:14:35 AM
it's a long discussion. in the 80's most people were spoon fed their musical taste by radio. today streaming has broadened their musical palettes exponentially.
Jorge Armando Castro 11:14:39 AM
The commercial stuff is fine but it's also good to have a forum for completely different programming.
Jorge Armando Castro 11:15:22 AM
Agree with your statement JeffB.
ricklistens 11:16:18 AM
scared into conformity
DJ Simon 11:18:55 AM
@Jorge - Thanks for the earlier comment re: yesterday's show. Had a good time rummaging through the stacks in the Z's library.
JeffB (host) 11:20:57 AM
historically radio has needed to be mass appeal in order to be financially viable. I think in the coming years we'll get more "completely different programming" as niche stations will remain. FWIW last March KEXP in Seattle was #3 in the ratings. Blowing away the 100kw commercial alternative station in that market.
DJ Simon 11:24:29 AM
Wow – that's great (and interesting) about KEXP's ratings.
JeffB (host) 11:28:38 AM
yeah there's a few other ratings stories. The Current in Minneapolis is beating a lot of mainstream competitors. WMVY on Cape Cod is currently the #1 rated music station (but one of the major groups there isn't subscribing to the ratings soo..
JeffB (host) 11:29:34 AM
Never seen stations so alternative do so well before. So keep the faith !
PiGuy 11:31:13 AM
Loved the Dirty on Purpose song, not sure I ever heard it played by anyone. Discovered that song on a blog many years ago. Remember those?
ricklistens 11:31:50 AM
the vineyard..wealthy get to listen to what they want
Jorge Armando Castro 11:35:26 AM
Happy to hear that information JeffB. Also. great selection JeffB.
Frank Coleman 11:42:22 AM
Uh oh - volume dropped big time!
Frank Coleman 11:42:37 AM
ok now
ricklistens 11:42:50 AM
all bot... bought
JeffB (host) 11:46:52 AM
Yeah i messed that up royally sorry. Thought i was monitoring the zbc feed..
Richard Weinfeld 11:50:38 AM
Among the young people I drive, many EDM/house music fans, hip-hop and older dark-wave/industrial also popular. I get aspiring rappers play me their stuff, but radio sucks here and people find stuff on Spotify and other streaming apps.
pmc&u >🤖 11:51:05 AM
Who can potentially hear? And how can they? Terrestrial and Interrube are diff and can be complementary howevah, you need to implement and program to get the niche, or you can just let tuition talk…
ricklistens 11:53:18 AM
Thanks jeff... thanks for putting up w/ a weirdo like me, New England☘️
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:54:53 AM
Superb Syrup today Jeff, including radio convo in chat
JeffB (host) 11:55:25 AM
@PMC agree.. carefully. A lot of colleges have sold their stations. Brown's WBRU is now "K-Love". UMass Dartmouth's WUMD is now Rhode Island Public Radio. Want WZBC to stick around !!!
JeffB (host) 11:55:37 AM
thx Jamie :)
ricklistens 11:55:44 AM
money will walk all over us
PiGuy 11:57:20 AM
Jeff, thanks for making a bitterly cold morning all nice and bright.
ricklistens 11:58:01 AM
retirees what will allow to guarantee your planned retirement?
ricklistens 11:59:19 AM
Richard Weinfeld 11:59:54 AM
Thanks Jeff
JeffB (host) 12:00:43 PM
thanks everyone !
Jorge Armando Castro 12:00:55 PM
Thanks JeffB. Great show, great conversation.
