Welcome back to the fold! 😤
ROFFLESTOMP 8:05:59 PM
More crash symbols please. :)
Dana K (host) 8:10:39 PM
the pizza my roommate ordered arrived just in time for the show
Brian D 8:10:47 PM
ROFFLESTOMP 8:11:40 PM
I had big plans to get to the Rotunda last week, but dear old Amazon shut me down. I simply leave nothing on my proch in my neighborhood. ARG!
TAndy 8:12:13 PM
Aaaagh you had to say pizza I guess it's pizza for dinner
Dana K (host) 8:12:34 PM
our amazon guy throws the packages behind the trashcans...it's worked pretty well
ROFFLESTOMP 8:13:13 PM
Dana K, I need that guy!
ROFFLESTOMP 8:18:24 PM
Where did you show? The main rotunda is full of shipping material and storage.
Dana K (host) 8:19:33 PM
There is a room with a stage
ROFFLESTOMP 8:20:26 PM
In back I guess?
Dana K (host) 8:20:53 PM
Yes, not sure where you're referring to
ROFFLESTOMP 8:21:46 PM
An upstairs was an option to I think.
ROFFLESTOMP 8:22:34 PM
But it sure was not between those boxes. lol
ROFFLESTOMP 8:23:57 PM
Moving on, Thanks for cool tunes. We move on always..
Dana K (host) 8:24:24 PM
you are welcome!
richard lyons 8:27:29 PM
Great show Dana K! Hi all!
Dana K (host) 8:27:43 PM
thank you richard!
Mike Appelstein 8:36:14 PM
Darling Buds or Primitives?
Dana K (host) 8:36:56 PM
a good question! i think on average, i like more primitives songs...but the darling buds songs i like, i really like.
Dylan Tasch 8:37:17 PM
I’ve been sitting in my car outside of work for 45 mins glued to this set, I literally have to go in and I have fomo
Mike Appelstein 8:37:33 PM
Primitives are more of an album band. Their first two are pure gold
Dana K (host) 8:38:42 PM
i'm sorry about having to work, dylan!
Mike Appelstein 8:38:57 PM
The Umbrellas sound so much like early Pastels that it’s uncanny
Dylan Tasch 8:39:06 PM
Quite ok I like to work ^_^ thanks for the tunes
TAndy 8:40:18 PM
Jam Alert 🚨🚨🚨
ROFFLESTOMP 8:43:16 PM

Mike Appelstein 8:43:55 PM
Brian D 8:44:41 PM
richard lyons 8:45:00 PM
Mike, I agree with the Pastels comparison! Great sound:)
Brian D 8:45:28 PM
A fine song off of a fine album. Doug n Bob
richard lyons 8:47:37 PM
TAndy 8:48:01 PM
Another jam. This show really has me in an autumn mood rn, at least till I step outside into the heat lolol
Dana K (host) 8:48:12 PM

richard lyons 8:48:27 PM
Can't beat the Magnetic Fields too!
Dana K (host) 8:48:33 PM
gotta collect myself before the next mic break.
Brian D 8:48:45 PM
TAndy 9:15:06 PM
Yoooo tribute to DJ Number 6
Dana K (host) 9:15:41 PM
haha, that definitely occurred to me!
TAndy 9:17:09 PM
Epic show so far, that "Turning Red" from not too long ago might have me check out the rest of their work later! Time to get ready for work though
Dana K (host) 9:18:14 PM
i get all the night shift workers!
richard lyons 9:19:47 PM
MR HITCHCOCK!!!!!!!!! YAY
Dana K (host) 9:21:10 PM
"but all i hear when they embrace is just the kiss of skulls"
TAndy 9:26:16 PM
Is that thunder outside anyone hearing or is someone just doing some motorcycle tomfoolery outside my place lol
Dana K (host) 9:26:58 PM
i've got big headphones on so i couldn't tell you!
TAndy 9:27:23 PM
Just confirmed it's thunder wtf it shook the foundation of the house
richard lyons 9:28:23 PM
That's the best way to listen to Don't Back the Front!!
richard lyons 9:28:43 PM
Big headphones, that is :)
richard lyons 9:30:15 PM
I wonder if kiss of skulls is a band?
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:30:51 PM
@ Dana K (host) Another xlnt show! I enjoyed that riff on "The Prisoner" classic TV series by The Times, "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape." As I recall, in the final episode his former secret agent character does escape from the bizarre mystery village (in real life, a "folly" architectural riff on classical ruins in Wales that was used for the exteriors).
Dana K (host) 9:31:55 PM
i've got to actually watch the prisoner at some point!
TAndy 9:35:08 PM
Wow! Just had a power surge that cut power for a few minutes, even lost cell data!
Dana K (host) 9:36:23 PM
you're not in philly, are you? that got me nervous!
TAndy 9:37:22 PM
Nah, Trenton. We just had a very strong little cell meander past us specifically.
Dana K (host) 9:37:54 PM
richard lyons 9:38:05 PM
Denim pairs well with Elvis!
Ambrose Hughes 9:38:39 PM
Hello Jen! Bringing me back with a lot of these.
Ambrose Hughes 9:38:59 PM
Hi all in chat!
Ossy Hyouka 9:39:02 PM
Freestyle Friday all
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:39:12 PM
@ TAndy Weather radar does show a strong storm front moving northeast thru Pennsylvania but the center seems to be more over Lancaster County than Philly itself.
richard lyons 9:40:28 PM
didn't hear anything unusual
TAndy 9:40:40 PM
Yeah we have a cold front coming through tonight, right now a decent cluster of cells in Lancaster and Coatesville slowly heading east northeast
TAndy 9:41:05 PM
We need rain badly in Central Jersey though so I welcome it
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:41:14 PM
@ Dana K (host) I think you'll enjoy "The Prisoner." I'm sure it's available on DVD sets, maybe streaming toio ... "What do you want?!!" "INFORMATION!" "You won't get it!"
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:44:40 PM
@ TAndy Yes, we do indeed need rain here in Central NJ (I'm in the Princeton area.) Hmmm ... yes, I need to schedule a major hike or bike ride ... with Murphy's Law, it will then rain like that day! ;-))
Ambrose Hughes 9:45:12 PM
Ambrose Hughes 9:45:33 PM
Ambrose Hughes 9:46:07 PM
I think they're playing Philly tonight
Dana K (host) 9:46:26 PM
Ossy Hyouka 9:46:31 PM
Yeah, bring the rain. It rained a bit it Willingboro and saw a rainbow
TAndy 9:49:50 PM
Well I just got positively drenched getting to my car! LOL
Colin 9:53:48 PM
I gotta keep an eye on the weather radar. bandit wanted to go sit on the porch. she is slightly terrified of rain, but mostly the included thunder.
Jon Solomon 9:55:15 PM
My daughter said on the drive home she really liked your set tonight. So I guess she likes 1960s-style tunes?
Colin 9:55:28 PM
and hey! i haven't heard let alone thought about velocity girl in some time. this track is fresh
TAndy 9:55:36 PM
Okay it can stop raining at some point now starting to get some flash flooding
Dana K (host) 9:56:58 PM
apparently in philly we have a drizzle.
Jon Solomon 9:57:00 PM
Was in Princeton, dry. Driving south, wild lightning.
Dana K (host) 9:57:20 PM
@jon, that makes me very happy to hear! about your daughter enjoying the set, that is
Colin 9:58:00 PM
there is a big cell over trenton moving north east. no rain in abington....yet
Jon Solomon 9:58:33 PM
She doesn't talk about music beyond musicals much so this was...an interesting development.
Dana K (host) 9:58:46 PM
that's EVEN BETTER
TAndy 9:58:59 PM
Sitting in my car waiting for it to stop. The rain just eased up a little bit and I can barely see the moon through the clouds
Colin 9:59:29 PM
that's no moon...
Ossy Hyouka 10:03:15 PM
Saw half the moon
TAndy 10:03:23 PM
Jon pretty much all of South and West Mercer county got drenched. The rain is finally back to a manageable amount though so I'll be off to work now.
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:09:32 PM
@ Colin "that's no moon..." ... "It's a space station !!!"
Colin 10:10:18 PM
i had to have heard the suburbs before. definitely have not heard this song. but i like it!
Dana K (host) 10:10:48 PM
one of the twin cities' finest
Colin 10:11:31 PM
richard, bingo! i love star trek
Colin 10:12:44 PM
yeah, totally gonna check out some more suburbs, i had to have heard a song before.
Colin 10:13:06 PM
Colin 10:30:27 PM
imagine, new band today "lets call us biff bang pow! nobody has ever used that name" googles it what the?!?!
Dana K (host) 10:32:19 PM
so many of those 80s UK bands loved the creation
Colin 10:34:26 PM
i was just looking, BBP tshirts are not available.
Colin 10:36:31 PM
ha! during that BBP song i had the thought that we are skirting the edge of cure vibes.
Dana K (host) 10:38:23 PM
i love it when my selections appear to make sense
TAndy 10:41:13 PM
Just got to work safely, so many huge ponds collected on the road from all the sudden rain
Dana K (host) 10:41:30 PM
glad you made it without hydroplaning! uh, like this band
Colin 10:43:58 PM
those road ponds pop up fast when one is driving at night. ha! that last song was called hydroplane!
TAndy 10:46:03 PM
Hahaha I was gonna say
Colin 10:47:42 PM
4 bad fly
Dana K (host) 10:49:15 PM
Colin 10:50:11 PM
that may be my favorite phone number/ unused band name of the decade.
TAndy 10:53:59 PM
This SFA is too good. Thanks for the show Dana K 💙
Dana K (host) 10:54:19 PM
you're very welcome!
Dana K (host) 10:55:07 PM
Colin 10:55:25 PM

Colin 10:56:40 PM

Dana K (host) 10:58:02 PM

TAndy 10:58:27 PM
Ambrose Hughes 11:00:00 PM
