Hello Jen and Jon!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:05:23 PM
you guys are on it! hello! welcome!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:05:36 PM
richard lyons 3:05:52 PM
Love Barbara Manning. Got to see her 23 years ago in Portland, OR.
richard lyons 3:06:10 PM
Hi Colin:)
Jen Redlights (host) 3:06:40 PM
She's the best!
Ambrose Hughes 3:07:00 PM
Hi Jen, you run, I'll walk!😥
Colin 3:07:24 PM
good after noon Richard hope you're keeping cool this afternoon.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:07:27 PM
hahhah armchair sprinting
Ambrose Hughes 3:08:14 PM
I'm zapped of NRG
Jen Redlights (host) 3:09:29 PM
we can help with that, Ambrose
Jon Solomon 3:09:56 PM
I went running at noon today because I AM STUPID!
Colin 3:10:26 PM
I'm going for a wee hike at quitting time today.
Colin 3:11:10 PM
already drinking a bunch of water two hours in advance
richard lyons 3:11:16 PM
Weather is amazing here in Portland today! Overcast and 68 degrees. 102 next week.
Jon Solomon 3:11:33 PM
That sounds lovely, Colin.
Colin 3:11:56 PM
richard, My little sister lives in bend
Jen Redlights (host) 3:13:04 PM
Gotta love the 60s -> 100s spread on the West Coast
Colin 3:13:14 PM
jon. there has been a momma white tail and her two fawns i've been seeing regularly on my hikes. the little ones aren't even waist high yet.
richard lyons 3:13:20 PM
Nice. It's beautiful there.
Colin 3:14:47 PM
could Ff be my new band discovery of the day???
Jen Redlights (host) 3:15:56 PM
I hope so, Colin! Those guys were insanely underrated / completely ignored.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:16:04 PM
from NYC, if i recall correctly
Ambrose Hughes 3:16:04 PM
@Jen, yeah, this IS helping😃
Colin 3:16:40 PM
re FF: shazam was like who dis?
Jon Solomon 3:18:44 PM
Ff might have been from New Brunswick?
Jen Redlights (host) 3:18:47 PM
@ambrose YESS!
Mike Lupica 3:19:40 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:19:47 PM
@jon oh wow! hahaha we summoned Mike
Jen Redlights (host) 3:19:55 PM
Mike Lupica 3:20:26 PM
(They were from Brooklyn.)
Jen Redlights (host) 3:20:32 PM
per some review I just found that also compared them with Paw, and I just choked on my lunch
Jen Redlights (host) 3:20:43 PM
Mike Lupica 3:21:07 PM
But they often played at the Court Tavern. Sadly, their singer (Tom Price) is no longer with us. He was an amazing singer, and also known (and feared) as someone with a nasty habit of beating up soundmen.
Jon Solomon 3:21:14 PM
I stand corrected!
Mike Lupica 3:22:06 PM
He called me on the air once, utterly bewildered that anyone was (still) playing his band on the radio in 2000-whenever-it-was.
Mike Lupica 3:23:52 PM
Very nice remembrance of Tom here: https://www.nj.com/entertainment/music/2012/03/tribute_to_late_ff_frontman_to.html
Jen Redlights (host) 3:24:31 PM
oh geez i'm sorry to hear all of that!
Colin 3:25:30 PM
mike, love the local-ish band history snippets. Surprised I never heard the Ff before. definitly gonna be rocking out them at some point.. probably tonight.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:27:02 PM
WPRB, home of never forgetting the best oldies.
Mike Lupica 3:27:54 PM
Right on, Colin. Tom was a big and very imposing dude who owned his girth like a badge of honor. If I remember the lore correctly, "Ff" stood for "fucking fat".
Jen Redlights (host) 3:28:40 PM
+1 on the memory
Jen Redlights (host) 3:28:58 PM
can't remember if i actually ever saw them but am sure sorry he's gone.
Mike Lupica 3:28:59 PM
Mt brain is pickled from all the rolling rock.
Mike Lupica 3:29:31 PM
Jon Solomon 3:29:53 PM
That was a very nice remembrance indeed. Discogs confirms what Ff stood for.
Ambrose Hughes 3:30:39 PM
Mike Lupica 3:33:45 PM
Seriously, why the hell did I drink that stuff in the 90s? I don't think I could choke one down today, but it was THEE beer of gigs at Brownies, Mercury Lounge, Maxwells, Under Acme, etc. Thank god for progress.
Colin 3:33:58 PM
I did just find a full Ff concert recording at the court tavern from 1993 on soundcloud.
Mike Lupica 3:34:10 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:35:28 PM
@Mike: because we couldn't afford "the good stuff"?
richard lyons 3:35:31 PM
Well at least you weren't drinking pizza beer :)
Mike Lupica 3:36:21 PM
@Jen, I don't think there *was* good stuff then. What would that have been... Molson Ice? Also, LOL Richard!
Ambrose Hughes 3:37:20 PM
@Mike, Altoona's finest!😂
Jen Redlights (host) 3:37:33 PM
@mike this is a good point you make
richard lyons 3:38:40 PM
Maybe Labatt?
Colin 3:38:41 PM
mike, the good stuff back then was the canadian or german beers. do you even Grolsch bro?
Jon Solomon 3:39:47 PM
The bar I managed in the 1990s had high end root beer on tap but that stopped after it was realized the employees were all drinking it for free.
Ambrose Hughes 3:39:54 PM
@Mike, Court Tavern, fun venue, had Genesee Cream Ale for a buck in the mid 2000's🤗
Mike Lupica 3:40:55 PM
I always thought the point of Grolsch was the novelty bottles it came in. And Ambrose, yes! Jenny Cream Ale, the official beer of every Bad Karma gig!
Mike Lupica 3:41:01 PM
Jon, that is perfect.
Mike Lupica 3:41:22 PM
And by "the employees", I assume you mean... YOU.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:42:46 PM
my kid thinks it's hilarious to try to trick me into drinking his root beer whe I mean to grab for my beer. Still hate root beer, always have. 😱
Ambrose Hughes 3:43:02 PM
@Jen, nice one!
Colin 3:43:15 PM
i delivered pizzas for pizzeria uno in philly in 93, the grolsch bottles were recycled as salad dressing bottles for the tables there. italian looking and stuff
Jen Redlights (host) 3:43:39 PM
Mike Lupica 3:44:13 PM
Jon Solomon 3:45:00 PM
Speaking of scenes from an Italian restaurant, I just encountered the following shirt...
Jon Solomon 3:45:02 PM
Ambrose Hughes 3:45:05 PM
Good hearing Mark Lanegan, sorely missed.
Colin 3:47:28 PM
jon. 🤣😅😂
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:20 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:32 PM
@Ambrose we need a dose at least every few weeks
Ambrose Hughes 3:48:46 PM
@Jon, that illustration is a wee bit freaky.
Mike Lupica 3:49:43 PM
Very tempted to buy that shirt for all of my Long Island relatives.
Ambrose Hughes 3:49:43 PM
@Jen, got my vote!👈
Jon Solomon 3:50:10 PM
@Mike, it is somehow not the only Black Flag / Billy Joel mash-up shirt this place sells!
Jon Solomon 3:50:50 PM
This also exists. What a world. - https://fsgprints.com/products/the-bridge
Jen Redlights (host) 3:51:19 PM
if i didn't loathe billy joel so much, I think I'd buy that immediately
richard lyons 3:53:06 PM
HA Jen, right?
richard lyons 3:53:47 PM
Don't let your kid replace all your shirts with those Billy Joel shirts :D
Jen Redlights (host) 3:55:19 PM
Sssssssshhh don't give him any ideas
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 3:59:26 PM
Hello. Waking up from a nap listening to Running Red Lights and looking at Billy Joel t-shirts
Mike Lupica 4:00:12 PM
Rob, are you quoting William Carlos Williams?
Jen Redlights (host) 4:00:32 PM
Mike Lupica 4:01:42 PM
This Power Supply song gets the award for best Lou Reed Vocal Delivery Ripoff of 2022. And I mean that in a good way!
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 4:02:07 PM
Mike, I am sorry, the plum in the refrigerator, that you wanted to eat, has turned into a Billy Joel t-shirt
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 4:02:59 PM
And tons of vinyl records from the 70s and 80s. Yeesh, a Peter Frampton album
Jon Solomon 4:03:02 PM
Lewsberg the Susan Lucci of this scenario.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:03:11 PM
@mike totally, Lou Reed if he were taking *really* different drugs
Ambrose Hughes 4:03:25 PM
@Mike, right?
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 4:03:28 PM
This does kind of sound like Lou Reed
Mike Lupica 4:19:23 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:19:49 PM
I really needed to hear Nausea and Ohyda paired! It's a winner!
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 4:20:42 PM
Now I am fully awake because of this Nausea song
Colin 4:21:03 PM
this whole set so far! the energy i needed to finish my work related tasks by quitting timetime.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:02 PM
I love that last verse - WE ARE NOT DONE YET, COME BACK, PUNX
Jon Solomon 4:24:09 PM
I love this record so much. Believe that Mike found the CD for me in the budget bin at PREX and then another person found me a vinyl copy for $0.50 at a The Wiz that was going out of business.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:26:24 PM
It's amazing, and thanks to DGC, plentiful (at least at the time).
Jen Redlights (host) 4:26:53 PM
also, i was referencing Wiz Bucks just yesterday as I was evaluating my 30 Best Buy Bucks, so thanks for that reference ;)
Ambrose Hughes 4:32:04 PM
My kind of elevator music, agreed Jen.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:33:35 PM
If I ever run a building....
richard lyons 4:34:02 PM
I got my Pell Mell "Interstate" as a Skuff at a Hastings Records and Tapes
Ambrose Hughes 4:34:35 PM
Will it be called the Running Redlights Building?
Jen Redlights (host) 4:35:40 PM
Haha we'll have to work on the name. The Lights Up building.
Jon Solomon 4:36:36 PM
Juno? Juno!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:36:46 PM
Brian D 4:37:11 PM
Juno who
Colin 4:37:17 PM
root beer has already been parentally banned from the snack shop in the building.
Jon Solomon 4:38:40 PM
This photo from a Juno tour was recently unearthed. I have no recollection of it being taken.
Jon Solomon 4:38:47 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:39:46 PM
awwwww i love this!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:00 PM
i never got to see them. are you in touch?
Jon Solomon 4:40:25 PM
Not in touch at all, which made the tag all the more surprising!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:47 PM
love it!
Brian D 4:41:46 PM
Rewind to Mike L: Rolling Rock was "band practice beer" for me for a while. Good to quench, rest of guys did not like good stuff (1/2 Dingaling Lag fans , 1/2 RR fans in that band). So I did not tote the good stuff to practice. And then RR got bought. Another band friend hoarded a case from the end of the Latrobe PA era brewing. The Newark Rollin Rock is not good.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:42:30 PM
"old RR"??
Brian D 4:43:11 PM
And Grolsch "clay top"" big bottles were a once in a while band beer too. The red/orange rubber rings are well known among guitar and bass players for an added straplock you put outside the strap after you attach it to the knob, Jen RR = Rolling Rock
Jen Redlights (host) 4:44:03 PM
haha sorry, yep, I just didn't know there was OG formula RR vs the newfangled kind.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:44:08 PM
shows i wasn't in bands!
Elton Bong 4:45:46 PM
What a great f****** show, thank you.
Brian D 4:45:59 PM
Yes. Very much different when it was brewed in PA at the Latrobe brewery. I mean it was not grand cru champagne then but... it is really bad now. Like most mass produced beers
Jen Redlights (host) 4:46:08 PM
hey Elton, thanks for that! I'm glad you're liking it!
richard lyons 4:46:31 PM
I second that!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:47:08 PM
Awesome, you guys!! thanks! And @brian obviously like is too damn short for bad beer.
Colin 4:50:39 PM
Grolsch was a virtual band practice tool box! those Grolsch tops were used as roach holders at band practice as well. apparently
Brian D 4:54:05 PM
YES! Those durn little bugs kept crawlin out tho....
Brian D 4:54:44 PM
I remember when they were still made out of clay. When you could actually do that roachie trick. Plastic as of 15-20 yrs ago... no good now
Colin 4:55:06 PM
and they say herding cats is difficult....
Colin 4:55:35 PM
liked that dan drohan song
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 4:57:20 PM
Thanks Jen! Hopefully next week!
Brian D 4:57:37 PM
GREAT show Jen!
richard lyons 4:57:47 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 4:57:48 PM
