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!

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

CARLOS RAMONE 5:26:44 PM
Just scrolled thru all the post cards…that is one talented person
ROFFLESTOMP 5:27:35 PM
Post cards are definitely dope af.
CARLOS RAMONE 5:29:38 PM
Some remind me of Winston Smith inserts in the Dead Kennedy’s albums
ROFFLESTOMP 5:30:53 PM
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).

@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.

@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
CARLOS RAMONE 6:18:17 PM
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

You got it, Randy.

Hey Sebastian! Hello from Hawkeye too!

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) 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.
CARLOS RAMONE 7:16:15 PM
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
CARLOS RAMONE 7:16:42 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.

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?

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

i believe i'll put them in this envelope

NO MORE TEETH IN THE MAIL PLEASE.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:58:21 PM
(That goes for all of you.)
ROFFLESTOMP 7:58:59 PM
After a diet of Tang and freeze dried space food, the Veggie burger sounds like quite the treat after splashdown. Cool spins sir. Laterly!
