Welcome to the Recherché chat, my friends...time to chill and gently sway....ahhhhhh!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:04:02 PM
Heya Readie, happy Friday!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:04:47 PM
Hey Addie! Thx, happy Friday to you too!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:05:07 PM
Has it been a lucky Friday the 13th for you?
Alan Pasnyk 6:05:31 PM
Hi Readie ! Addie!!! Been one Helluva week, but time to Shake..It...Off!!!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:05:48 PM
Hi Alan! You;ve come to the right place!
Alan Pasnyk 6:06:58 PM
...Usually it's not Friday the 13th that gives me trouble, but Monday the 13th..Go figure...
Readie Righteous (host) 6:07:00 PM
Amid all the rain, we'll think ahead to sunny days and ocean breezes!
Alan Pasnyk 6:08:02 PM
A good friend of mine is vacationing in Cancun...as we speak...
Readie Righteous (host) 6:08:44 PM
Oh, hmmm, Monday the 13th? Well, I guess Mondays in general aren't the best...
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:08:59 PM
It’s been an ok Friday the 13th actually!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:09:26 PM
Cancun- I am imagining I am somewhere like that rn...tropical breezes....
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:09:36 PM
Might actually get to go swimming tomorrow too!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:09:49 PM
It’s super hot here right now.
Alan Pasnyk 6:10:05 PM
So Readie, I'm looking forward to the Latino theme this warm evening..
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:10:35 PM
This is perfect music for the weather here for sure, Alan!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:11:13 PM
Good! we are "lucky" to be all together again! Really? Hot ? It's 67 degrees here,,,but cloudy with rain later and maybe Saturday...but it's just fine
Alan Pasnyk 6:11:25 PM
Addie: So how "Warm" is it where you are???
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:13:40 PM
It was almost 90 today!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:13:58 PM
O my - sweltering!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:14:17 PM
We’re having a little heat wave
Alan Pasnyk 6:14:56 PM
90 ???? Wow, Mr. Slithers must be all energized! Watch he doesn't escape Addie!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:15:40 PM
Alan, my newer snake, Frodo, did escape last night! Luckily he knocked something over and I woke up to find him on top of his tank.
Alan Pasnyk 6:19:04 PM
Readie: that Antonio Carlos track reminded me of "Brazil 66", and I remember Herb Alpert did this "Desifinado" track.
Alan Pasnyk 6:19:35 PM
...Man do I Love Latino music!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:19:52 PM
Yes, much coming from Jobim tonight - I'm glad you like it, Alan!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:20:40 PM
It helps me to recalibrate!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:21:34 PM
Sunday may be a good day around NJ to go down the shore...
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:22:37 PM
This music is such a good vibe
Readie Righteous (host) 6:22:57 PM
Ahhhh, yess.
Readie Righteous (host) 6:23:50 PM
Have you heard about the black hole Sagittarius A*? I saw an article in the Times....cool stuff!
Alan Pasnyk 6:25:55 PM
Readie: Sgr.A* has been in the news for quite a few years.. A Black Hole having about 4 million times the mass of our Sun
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:27:11 PM
4 million times!!
Alan Pasnyk 6:27:20 PM
.. They have actually made a video of the stars in a super fast orbit around seemingly Nothing, Black!!
Rob from Maryland 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 6:27:37 PM
That's pretty heavy, 4 million times!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:27:43 PM
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:28:30 PM
Hi Rob!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:28:37 PM
Yes, and the astro-physicists were excited to talk about it today at the news conference I saw... cool how they put together the different images!
Rob from Maryland 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 6:28:41 PM
Hi Addie and everyone!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:29:05 PM
Hi Rob! good to see you!
Alan Pasnyk 6:30:58 PM
Hi Rob! You ain't seen nothin' yet, M87 a galaxy in Virgo has a 2 BILLION mass Black Hole!!
Alan Pasnyk 6:31:37 PM
... It's roughly the size of our Solar System.
Readie Righteous (host) 6:32:46 PM
Yes, but Sag A* is in our very own galaxy!
Randy Marthins 6:32:59 PM
Hey Readie! Hey gang !!!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:33:50 PM

whoa, i can't hold a candle to that dancing lady with the feathers!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:38:13 PM
oh you can't go wrong with this track!
Alan Pasnyk 6:38:26 PM
Readie Righteous (host) 6:38:38 PM
I feel like dancing around like Austin Powers!
Randy Marthins 6:39:03 PM
I'll have a Long Island Ming Tea please
Readie Righteous (host) 6:39:06 PM
Hi Randy!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:39:53 PM
@Addie, I imagine she had better stay away from the candles tonight!!!! ;)
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:41:05 PM
she's most definitely not flame retardant!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:41:59 PM
La serpiente for Frodo & Mr. Slithers!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:43:43 PM
Snake approved!
Randy Marthins 6:44:08 PM
There had better be some David Byrne showing up in here someplace
Readie Righteous (host) 6:44:10 PM
Oh yes!
Randy Marthins 6:44:45 PM
Readie Righteous (host) 6:45:20 PM
Randy, do you have a David Byrne request?
Readie Righteous (host) 6:47:07 PM
There is Beleza Tropical coming, of course!
Randy Marthins 6:47:32 PM
To be fair Cowboy Mambo was the first thing I thought of,but wrong style LOL
Randy Marthins 6:50:05 PM
Lazy is kinda bossa?
Alan Pasnyk 6:50:11 PM
...Any "Culpa de la Bassanova" coming up??
Randy Marthins 6:51:04 PM
As a hardcore punk bass player I have ZERO sense of rhythm LOL
Readie Righteous (host) 6:51:53 PM
@Alan, You mean, blame it on the bossa nova? lol!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:52:04 PM
Readie Righteous (host) 6:52:44 PM
I could have done 2 shows at least on Bossa...maybe later this summer!
Alan Pasnyk 6:53:06 PM
Readie: I wrote some lyrics to that tune "Blame it on the Stupid Comet"
Readie Righteous (host) 6:55:50 PM
Oh, well, @Alan, you need to share a bit of that....
Randy Marthins 6:57:46 PM
Being a Runner, I will admit that I once wrote lyrics to "Chariots of Fire"
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:58:30 PM
oh boy, i've never written lyrics to anything, luckily for you folks!
Readie Righteous (host) 6:58:36 PM
@Randy...that sounds awesome...you talented people should share!
Randy Marthins 6:58:38 PM
The chariots of fire theme - we run on the beach- in funny white shorts - and no shoes on our feet
Readie Righteous (host) 6:59:24 PM
I once wrote a parody of Green Day's Boulevard of Broken Dreams...
Readie Righteous (host) 6:59:51 PM
You should make a Youtube of these gems Randy and Alan!
Alan Pasnyk 7:02:49 PM
The comet song is kind of lengthy, so I just sent you an email...
Readie Righteous (host) 7:04:36 PM
Alan Pasnyk 7:05:15 PM
In ancient times Comets were supposed to be harbingers of doom....
Readie Righteous (host) 7:06:12 PM
Well, that ship is sailing still...lol
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:06:15 PM
seems like a reasonable assumption when you have no way of knowing if they're on a collision course with earth or not!
Alan Pasnyk 7:06:50 PM
I was out one Night, And was full of Fright, Looking through my Scope, Was a scary Sight, In the eyepiece Loomed, Certain sudden Doom, When all at once I knew just what to Do:
Randy Marthins 7:07:33 PM
Comet = Bouncing Souls
Alan Pasnyk 7:07:56 PM
Blame it on the Stupid Comet, We knew so Well, Blame it on the Stupid Comet, From the Gates of Hell,

Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:12:57 PM
hello CL!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:13:08 PM
good to see you!
Alan Pasnyk 7:13:10 PM
Hi Coastal! Welcome to the chat where Bossanova can start a conversation about comets...only on WPRB.
Coastal.Loon 7:14:06 PM
Greetings Addie and Alan!
Coastal.Loon 7:14:46 PM
Addie what's Green Mountain weather looking like as of late ?
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:15:27 PM
surprisingly hot! nearly 90 today, yesterday i think over 90. but i'm excited to hit the swimming holes soon!
Coastal.Loon 7:16:31 PM
GEEEZ! Thats cooking already, I was just walking across frozen lakes up there, only what seemed like a couple months ago.
Readie Righteous (host) 7:17:09 PM
CL! Hey there!! Hiya!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:17:14 PM
i know, it's hopefully just a brief wave. i think it should be more normal next week.
Coastal.Loon 7:18:24 PM
That certainly seems very unseasonal for this time of year. Certainly do love a good swimming hole.
Coastal.Loon 7:19:17 PM
Heya Readie, sorry I'm late, glad I was able to make it home and get the air waves coming in.
Richard from Rocky Hill 7:20:16 PM
@ Readie Righteous (host) Lovin' the sunshine of your samba set! Did you know that Astrud Gilberto's vocals on the album Getz/Gilberto -- notably of course those for the mega international hit "The Girl from Ipanema" -- represented her first professional recording sessions?! But she'd had much experience singing prior to going into the studio for the first time.
Readie Righteous (host) 7:20:28 PM
Hey, CL! No problemo! you are welcome all the time!!
Alan Pasnyk 7:20:38 PM
OOps, I'm old enough to remember when this fab tune came out '66....
Alan Pasnyk 7:21:24 PM
Mas que nada = better than nothin'
Readie Righteous (host) 7:22:18 PM
@Richard - thanks for stopping by...I suspected Astrud was new to the scene then, but her innocence and unadorned clarity was so refreshing!!
TAndy 7:22:22 PM
Good evening everyone :) Bossa Nova, lovely tmusicc to tune into 🥰
Randy Marthins 7:22:39 PM
Are there any Bossa songs about Pele? I know a play-by-play of Socrates is sampled in a Big Audio Dynamite track
Readie Righteous (host) 7:22:47 PM
And here is some Franco-Brasilien pour tous!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:23:34 PM
TAndy! welcome to the bossa nova party!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:24:22 PM
@Randy - that's sounds like a research opportunity...I wouldn't be surprised...
Readie Righteous (host) 7:24:43 PM
TAndy, glad you like it!
Alan Pasnyk 7:25:48 PM
Hey first time hear Brass this eve, on Didier
TAndy 7:27:08 PM
Was it hot today? It still feels cool in my place somehow.
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:27:21 PM
hi TAndy!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:28:16 PM
Guess who?
TAndy 7:28:20 PM
Hello Addie 😁
Alan Pasnyk 7:28:35 PM
Hi Tandy! Hot in Vermont, warm in Philly, if you feel cold you must be in Florida :)
Richard from Rocky Hill 7:29:24 PM
@ Readie Righteous (host) Your observation that Astrud's "innocence and unadorned clarity was so refreshing!!" is totally spot-on, Readie. It makes me realize: If she'd tried to be breathy and sultry with that vocal, the result wouldn't have been 1/100th as sensual and alluring as it is ... for all time!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:29:36 PM
hmmm, sounds super familiar!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:30:08 PM
@Richard! agree! Love it when you come into the chat...!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:30:12 PM
i wanna say Amy Winehouse
Readie Righteous (host) 7:31:05 PM

3 cookies, ya forgot the snakes..
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:32:37 PM
one cookie, two, er, fuzzy cookies
Richard from Rocky Hill 7:32:54 PM
@ Readie Righteous (host) Aww, shucks! I'm grateful there IS a chat, here and across WPRB-landia, and Hosts like you!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:33:15 PM
Yes, there were Amy elements in there...a discerning ear can tell...congrats Addie!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:33:50 PM
Thanks, Richard, chatters like you add an extra element to our convo! Thanks for that!
Randy Marthins 7:33:55 PM
@Richard the only Rocky Hill I know if is in CT
Alan Pasnyk 7:34:31 PM
Love it Addie, "Fuzzy cookies" :)
Randy Marthins 7:35:31 PM
Fuzzy cookies = coconut macaroons
Readie Righteous (host) 7:36:09 PM
MMM, @Randy, I just ran out of coconut macaroons! must add to my list...
Randy Marthins 7:38:11 PM
I took so much shit from a baker one time because macaROONS =/= macaRONS
Alan Pasnyk 7:38:47 PM
....this a real chillin' tune...
Randy Marthins 7:39:13 PM
Macaroons (esp. Boardwalk Macaroons) SO > Macarons
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:40:42 PM
love a good chocolate dipped macaroon! can't seem to find any decent ones in VT. miss the jewish deli ones!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:45:37 PM
mmmm, I am def getting hungry rn!
Alan Pasnyk 7:46:47 PM
...main course before dessert Readie :)
TAndy 7:48:28 PM
My goodness I am loving this
Readie Righteous (host) 7:49:12 PM
@Alan, sometimes I eat dessert first...ah...prerogativos!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:49:33 PM
@TAndy - so glad you like!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:50:35 PM
yes, you definitely should do a part two sometime, Readie!
Alan Pasnyk 7:50:40 PM
Is it just me, or does most of this Latino music have a very strong beat, but in a very subtle way???
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:51:30 PM
whatever this is, i love it already!
Readie Righteous (host) 7:51:38 PM
@Addie, Yes, I will do a Bossa Part 2 later this summer!
TAndy 7:51:49 PM
Totally I need to save this playlist on YouTube when I need a quick bossa nova fix
Readie Righteous (host) 7:51:56 PM
@Alan - you nailed it!
Alan Pasnyk 7:58:29 PM
The Amanda Martinez track was absolutely Beautiful, so fragile...
