We begin our broadcast day. Welcome to the chat.
TAndy 7:00:50 AM
Good morning Sir
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:01:37 AM
Good morning, TAndy!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:02:16 AM
The weather forecast seems to have improved, storm-wise.
TAndy 7:02:59 AM
Another soupy humid morning! Still cloudy where I'm at, and I'm past the time of being able to go to the beach before it closes. I think I'll pass on the flea market too, honestly, and just go home after work. I'm itching to rewatch Pulp Fiction for the 53593th time in a row
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:06:00 AM
Sounds like a more comfortable option.
TAndy 7:07:04 AM
Tomorrow may be more active. If I even wake up early enough I may brave the shore. On the busiest day of the year. Depends.
TAndy 7:07:31 AM
If I wake up before Habitat Enrichment begins, I'm good. If not, 😔
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:09:11 AM
I shy away from traffic and crowds.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:09:48 AM
I like the gentle yet furious percussion on this track.
TAndy 7:10:49 AM
I dislike overly crowded places, but whenever I go to the beach alone I choose a spot way near the fence before the dunes. Everyone wants to camp 20ft closer to the water to save a few seconds of walking. Hah!
TAndy 7:11:33 AM
Gentle yet furious is a correct statement. Though not at the forefront, I could still feel the bass through my earbuds. Excellent mixing there
TAndy 7:21:16 AM
This Dhafer Youssef is doing it
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:22:05 AM
He can hit those high notes.
TAndy 7:41:37 AM
I regognized that soundbyte

TAndy 7:42:45 AM
Never noticed it before!
TAndy 7:46:44 AM
I was going to comment that this sounds like the back or the buildup of an old style Progressive Trance (EDM) track. I search and add it on my youtube playlist, whaddaya know. It had another release in '98 as a Progressive track in Germany.
TAndy 7:47:48 AM
Even this original version sounds like it would fit in well with a Sasha or John Digweed DJ set.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:49:58 AM
Maybe they used it.
TAndy 7:53:36 AM
Quick search on a couple of tracklist database websites, nothing :(
TAndy 7:55:41 AM
Well now I've got goosebumps at this part. Wow.
TAndy 7:57:29 AM
This will sound very cliche'd but this is a perfect song to trip out to haha
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:58:21 AM
Oh I am sure it was used for that purpose many times.
TAndy 7:59:30 AM
Well that fired me up

Good morning Christine 🌞

It was newly received at WPRB, and getting some attention from several DJs.
Christine 8:19:29 AM
It's going on the List. Thanks for playing them.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:21:11 AM
That List of yours must be extensive. WPRB might be a bad influence.
TAndy 8:22:22 AM
I'm here hoping WPRB makes my new list hit the limit like the last one lol
Christine 8:23:02 AM
This list needs to be broken up into to smaller lists, but it hasn't hit the limit yet!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:23:21 AM
WPRB has teams working around the clock to assure that happens.
Christine 8:23:52 AM
I have every confidence.

TAndy 8:26:04 AM
I have a list for each DJ I listen to. So far Ameena, Dave, Sara, Rosasolis, and CJ are well over 100 tracks. Rosasolis and CJ under 150 while Sara's is real close to 200.

@DSM Hah! I would rock that bumper magnet, facts.

Love the guitar/horn playing off each other in this
TAndy 8:29:25 AM
If I was awake for Deidre's show that list would just be too massive. The one sub show I remember last autumn had me adding nearly every song on their list!
Christine 8:36:07 AM

I was surprised to see Mensy released only 1 EP.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:37:26 AM
...that Discogs is aware of at least.

This was added to my list last time you played them. I really gotta go over the list.

A group of bumblebees? I wonder if they're carpenter bees...
TAndy 8:57:41 AM
They're literally shaking in excitement from all the flowers! I've never seen bees that happy before. A few honeybees and those tiny pollenating flies too!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:58:03 AM
Got them on every side of my home as well. Usually see them solitary, and not swarming, though.
TAndy 8:58:15 AM
Bees are so cool 🤩

There must be some nice pollen there! 🌼🌻🌸

Good morning, Bud. Corima is another overlooked band - from Texas of all places.
Bud Burroughs 9:05:41 AM
If you gave me 49 guesses as to which US state this band is from, I'd get it wrong.

I love this.

@dave but the R creates such mystic and mystery!

Fair enough, Chef.

@bud YES! Another prime example of that is them doing "Something" with Lalah Hathaway and everyone's heads exploding when she sings two notes at once
