Hey, everyone. Great to be back from space! Pay close attention tonight for a chance to win tickets to see Sun Ra Arkestra in Atlantic City on Friday night!!
Tee shirt spacesuit?

Too early to request the Ramones set be moved to PM hours on the Christmas Show?

I think the by-laws state that the Ramones set has to start at 12:34 (aka ONE TWO THREE FOUR!!)

Hey, everyone!
Jagex Sucks 5:11:30 PM
Gonna send in all of my teeth as an epic prank
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:49 PM
Carlos, your vote has been recorded. I hope to do Ramones sets at both 12:34 AM and PM this year...
Jon Solomon (host) 5:12:04 PM
@Jagex, two teeth was enough of a surprise!
Brian D 5:12:24 PM
I'll bring all my teeth.... so I'll HAVE them.... shoes too
Jagex Sucks 5:12:27 PM
All joking aside I've been a long time listener to this station, moving to Wisconsin soon and I'm going to miss listening love over the radio!
Jagex Sucks 5:12:39 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 5:12:46 PM
@Jagex, that's what listen.wprb.com if for. Hope your move goes well!
Brian D 5:13:29 PM
Stream stream stream. Wprb is always there for ya
Jon Solomon (host) 5:13:39 PM
Good evening, everyone! Great to see a mix of familiar names and new chatters in the room tonight.
Jagex Sucks 5:14:14 PM
Oh I know, but the magic of driving around jersey fighting off static while tuning in will be dearly missed.
Jagex Sucks 5:14:31 PM
Thanks to you and all the other hosts for years of entertainment and confusion.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:14:41 PM
You are very, very welcome.
Dan Wade 5:16:47 PM
Speaking of weird French stuff, are you familiar with Les Satellites?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:17:44 PM
That name does not ring any bells for me.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:18:48 PM
Worth investigating?
Dan Wade 5:19:23 PM
I'll send you a couple tracks. Nothing earth shattering
Jon Solomon (host) 5:21:18 PM
Thank you. Also, that wasn't a bit. There were really two teeth in the WPRB mail on Tuesday. No more teeth!
Snail Darth Rapa 5:21:31 PM
if this song doesn't end in the next 30 minutes I'm going to mail you your own teeth
Snail Darth Rapa 5:22:10 PM
none taken
Dan Wade 5:25:04 PM
Teeth belong inside of drums
Jon Solomon (host) 5:25:34 PM
Where do drums belong?
Dan Wade 5:25:57 PM
Around teeth
In a circle.
Just scrolled thru all the post cards…that is one talented person
Post cards are definitely dope af.
Some remind me of Winston Smith inserts in the Dead Kennedy’s albums
All of those Trenton post marks are a tad unsettling though. :)
Jon Solomon (host) 5:31:44 PM
@Carlos, the person who makes the postcards clearly pays close attention. I hope to find a way to display them all - perhaps when we get to 100 (I doubt they're stopping anytime soon).

2 mins to rocket launch, from Guyana to space
Jon Solomon (host) 5:49:19 PM
@Guelo, it is a "name your price" download on Bandcamp, link in playlist. Tell them you heard it on WPRB!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:50:32 PM
@SDR, is this a rocket that comes back or a rocket that stays in space?
Snail Darth Rapa 5:50:53 PM
no booster landing
Uncle Guelo 5:51:07 PM
Oh yeah this is definitely going into the collection.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:51:13 PM
Glad you enjoyed.

Jon Solomon (host) 6:16:25 PM
@Rob M do you have a way of getting in touch with me so I can get a few details from you so the tix are at the door for ya?
Rob M 6:16:50 PM
Sure. I follow you on twitter, so I can reach out there.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:17:26 PM
Terrific. Thanks, Rob. Doing giveaways without a true request line is weird!
Rob M 6:18:09 PM
Thank YOU. Took the girlfriend to see Marshall Allan a few months ago and she loved it, so been wanting to take her to the Arkestra
The request lines are now open…
Jon Solomon (host) 6:19:32 PM
Oh, awesome. You'll have a great time. I have yet to go to the Anchor so please let us all know how it is!
Rob M 6:19:55 PM
Will do! I replied to your tweet, your DMs are closed haha
Jon Solomon (host) 6:23:08 PM
Just saw that (phone is in the other room). You should be all set now. Send your name / phone / email + address when you can please and I'll relay to the Publicity & Promotions director. If there are any issues, she'll reach out I expect.
El Gran Rudolfo Martinez 6:24:03 PM
Speaking of Twitter, I should realign my ID here w/ my Twitter persona LOL
Jon Solomon (host) 6:25:33 PM
I believe there will be at least one more giveaway between now and Friday so keep listening to WPRB for more chances to win!
El Gran Rudolfo Martinez 6:25:38 PM
Keeping the neon bottle cap tho!

@EGRM, early July! The shirts are finally done.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:29:53 PM
@Amrbose, hello!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:33:20 PM
How is everyone tonight? Big dinner plans?
El Gran Rudolfo Martinez 6:36:24 PM
@jon & co - you can still call me Randy LOL
Jon Solomon (host) 6:38:27 PM
You got it, Randy.
Sebastian Petsu 6:39:48 PM
this is the heaviest Songs:Ohia cover I've every heard
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:41:03 PM
Hey Sebastian! Hello from Hawkeye too!
Sebastian Petsu 6:41:07 PM
oh wait, i think i somehow missed we're in the next song
Sebastian Petsu 6:41:44 PM
hey Addie! hey Hawkeye!
Sebastian Petsu 6:42:33 PM
@jon--- dinner was falafel and fries from west philly's Saad's
Jon Solomon (host) 6:42:55 PM
@Sebastian, it got pretty heavy before we moved onto the current song.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:43:03 PM
Also, that sounds like a quality meal.
Sebastian Petsu 6:44:20 PM
this current song has kind-of a late period Swans meets Explosions in the Sky and/or Godspeed feel. None of which is a bad thing
Jon Solomon (host) 6:48:27 PM
I thought this band's name would be a SEO disaster but now they come up before the song they'e named after!
Sebastian Petsu 6:48:55 PM
@jon and yes it was a quality comfort meal. I think Saad's has the best fries in Philly.
Sebastian Petsu 6:49:25 PM
despite the name, their sound is uncanny
Jon Solomon (host) 6:52:41 PM
They are Canadian, to add to the G!YBE-ness.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:56:15 PM
Dinner update: veggie burgers are in the toaster oven as I type.
Mary Jones 7:00:35 PM
@ Jon…since it was a pool party did the AQUABATS β€œ Pool Party β€œ get played?

Dennis Linggg 7:06:30 PM
Mary Jones 7:06:31 PM
Oh no
TAndy 7:08:24 PM
Gooood evening everyone
Jon Solomon (host) 7:11:01 PM
Hello, everyone. Please push that word further down in the chat so I don't have to look at it for much longer!
Sebastian Petsu 7:11:06 PM
I think the big request at the 8th grade pool party I attended back in the day was "O.P.P"
TAndy 7:11:37 PM
God I am gushing over this music on WPRB now. Gonna snack on some fruit gushers.
richard lyons 7:11:40 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:13:24 PM
TAndy, no!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:13:35 PM
"O.P.P." would have been an inspired choice.
TAndy 7:13:41 PM
I woke up and chose chaos today >:)
Sebastian Petsu 7:13:58 PM
this is nice and Velvet-y I dig it
Jon Solomon (host) 7:14:32 PM
I respect the decision. Well-played.
Great show tonight. I usually listen while making deliveries with static in the car. So much better at home online with a ca. If IPA
Can of IPA
Brian D 7:17:22 PM

Excellent as always, @Brian.

Happy birthday Ambrose!!
Brian D 7:24:53 PM
Whole lime squeezed in the chicken mix. Makes its own sauce. Penzey's did the flavors
Jon Solomon (host) 7:27:44 PM
Our neighbor's kid made pasta puttanesca for us all last night and the kid made a delicious red lentil / sweet potato / spinach curry the day prior. Both were treats esp. since I didn't have to do a thing!
Ambrose Hughes 7:28:15 PM
Awe why thank youse very much!
jimbeaux 7:29:42 PM
Hey peeps! Sadly missed Arkestra tix giveaway...teenager at home playing too loud guitar and drum machine. Ironically, the kid i would take to the show.
jimbeaux 7:29:57 PM
Ambrose Hughes 7:31:31 PM
Cheers @ jimbeaux! What was the kid playing?
richard lyons 7:32:24 PM
Jon. What's your go-to veggie burger?
richard lyons 7:34:22 PM
Thanks for the codeine heads up!!!

Hey, @Jimbeaux!
jimbeaux 7:35:47 PM
Yeeoooo Jon!
richard lyons 7:35:48 PM
Thnx Jon :)
Jon Solomon (host) 7:36:08 PM
@Richard, the veggie burgers tonight were Dr. Praeger knockoffs from Lidl. Decent enough. Not the most amazing but certainly enhanced by a wide assortment of quality condiments.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:36:42 PM
They were on sale and in a box of 12 so good to have in reserve for nights like this where we were all coming / going / on the radio.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:37:05 PM
Who's up for some Daniel Johnston-inspired hip hop?
Ambrose Hughes 7:37:33 PM
@jimbeaux, that's great!πŸ‘
Ambrose Hughes 7:38:11 PM

Ferries are a real good time.
richard lyons 7:40:51 PM
Thanks for the veggie burger info. I haven't had the mainstream "impossible" replacements. What is your favorite?
TAndy 7:46:36 PM
Loving this
Jon Solomon (host) 7:47:01 PM
Richard, good question. I prefer the fake meat sausages to fake hamburgers. Spicy Tofurky + Field Roast are faves there.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:47:26 PM
Like, Impossible is good (especially with lots of stuff on it) but sort of tastes the same throughout.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:49:10 PM
I know @Brian is a big fan of Luhv burgers...
richard lyons 7:51:46 PM
oooo. Good new info.
jimbeaux 7:52:14 PM
Thumbs up on Field Roast! I float between Impossible on the grill (tho loose ones are hard to handle until cooked) and veggie burgers that hold no pretense of actually being meat.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:52:44 PM
Had a very good veggie burger at a spot in Newtown, PA recently b/c there was different stuff happening in each bite...
TAndy 7:53:15 PM
I love veggie burgers that go heavy in the onions πŸ’™ whatever kind Trenton Thunder stadium used to serve
Snail Darth Rapa 7:54:11 PM
this song made my teeth come out
Snail Darth Rapa 7:54:23 PM
and i don't know what to do with them
Snail Darth Rapa 7:55:40 PM
i believe i'll put them in this envelope
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:47 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:58:21 PM
(That goes for all of you.)
After a diet of Tang and freeze dried space food, the Veggie burger sounds like quite the treat after splashdown. Cool spins sir. Laterly!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:28 PM
Thanks, Roffle. Was quite the journey. Delighted to be landlocked for a spell! Mike is next!
jimbeaux 7:59:42 PM
