Jon Solomon 6:04:57 PM
Sweatin'. Chatin'. The usual.
Corage Mike 6:05:02 PM
Just got up from a nap. How are you?
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 6:08:10 PM
Same here Jon, although I just got back to my room after leaving the door closed with the AC running and it feels nice like an icebox
the_dude 6:41:30 PM
Aw man I think I got that memo, just woke up from a heavy nap myself, and now I'm stoked on this jam!
the_dude 6:56:58 PM
Oh and on that Mets song, and daughters is one of my fav bands...great show already Casey, glad to hear you again!
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 6:57:16 PM
Thanks Dude!
the_dude 7:00:14 PM
Of course! And pretty sure I heard Rotura for the first time on Tobias' show recently, definitely good to hear them around the station
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:01:39 PM
Yeah I've been really impressed with all this Spanish language punk we've gotten recently
the_dude 7:24:15 PM
Oh nice, so how does that work, the station is still getting sent music you have access to? Sounds cool
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:30:39 PM
Yeah. I don't know exactly how the music directors have been doing it, but a lot of labels have done digital promos for a while. My impression is we only got to using those for the station out of necessity in the past year but DJs make their own recommendations and I think some people have checked the mail periodically to collect promo CDs
the_dude 7:40:53 PM
Interesting, thanks for the info, always curious how the wprb machine operates behind the air waves. I imagine digital promos were big this past year
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:43:19 PM
Yeah I think college radio stations were most of the last holdouts for physical promos but probably in the worst position to rely on them last year
jimbeaux 7:44:51 PM
Whazzup downer partay?
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:45:23 PM
Hey Jimbeaux! Been wondering when you were gonna show up
jimbeaux 7:46:19 PM
Went to NY botanic garden...road fried!
jimbeaux 7:47:22 PM
I will be driving the Cross Bronx Xpressway in my dreams.
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:48:08 PM
Well I hope you had a good time. Sounds like a nice trip
jimbeaux 7:49:02 PM
What band did you say blew your mind? Sure that's an expansive list...
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:50:50 PM
the_dude 7:51:47 PM
Yeah that track ripped, glad they're local, hope to catch them somewhere soon
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:51:53 PM
Heard them a week or two ago on Dana's show driving home from work
the_dude 7:52:09 PM
And don't you love that distinct priests sound?
jimbeaux 7:52:56 PM
That was good stuff! Yeah Priests...saw them open for Screaming Females. Ripping'.
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:53:12 PM
I was just gonna say that's the first time I heard them!
the_dude 7:54:00 PM
That would be a fun show, damb
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:54:13 PM
Screamales are playing the Church again in November if I'm not mistaken
jimbeaux 7:54:28 PM
At that show? Was at F.U. church. Was my oldest kids first punk show!
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:56:23 PM
Wasn't Vacation one of the openers for that? I think I missed them and I was upset after I heard their record
jimbeaux 7:56:50 PM
Yeah, vacation and Tenement.
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:57:45 PM
I think I caught Tenement but maybe it's just cause they were the opener at the same place the first time I saw them
jimbeaux 7:58:15 PM
Ye old Don Giovanni showcase!
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:58:51 PM
Love it. Miss it dearly
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 7:59:25 PM
I was right. They are playing the Church again 11/6
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 8:00:09 PM
Take care everyone. Thanks for listening!
the_dude 8:00:14 PM
Mrs. Dude says hi Casey, she's a big fan of your show, definitely putting that one on the calendar, thanks again, cheers!
party if yer down (Casey) (host) 8:01:38 PM
