It's nice to be reunited, @Colin! Glad you found the archives, too....
Brian D 10:11:14 AM
Pumped for weekend music yeah!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:16 AM
PS GVSB is Oct 14 in Brooklyn...no Philly, it seems.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:21 AM
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:29 AM
you guys are hopped up for brunchtime ;)
Brian D 10:11:57 AM
Benedict bar is open
gboss 10:12:07 AM
Hi Jen
Dan Ruccia 10:12:19 AM
Morning y'all!
Colin 10:13:05 AM
finished that morning coffee about 20 minutes ago, i think it's kicking in. ☕
Jen Redlights (host) 10:14:18 AM
hi @gboss and @Dam!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:14:22 AM
Dan Ruccia 10:15:22 AM
lol. Now it makes me want to request some Dam Funk. Or maybe I'll just have to play some on my show next week
Jen Redlights (host) 10:16:28 AM
ha! I call myself Jem all the time by accident
Dan Ruccia 10:19:09 AM
Wasn't there some cartoon band called Jem and the [somethings]
Mike Lupica 10:19:28 AM
Jem and the Holograms?
Mike Lupica 10:20:25 AM
Mike Lupica 10:20:38 AM
Also, hello everyone.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:21:04 AM
hello, Mike! Jem and the Holograms
Jen Redlights (host) 10:21:08 AM
Dan Ruccia 10:23:28 AM
That's them! I don't think I ever watched that show. I was too young when it was first on and too much "ew girls" when it was on reruns wherever it was on reruns
Jen Redlights (host) 10:24:17 AM
I always thought it was something and Princess of Power hahhah
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 10:25:10 AM
Good morning all. I don't know how much longer I'll be able to listen to this show, but I'm here for a while.
Dan Ruccia 10:25:57 AM
Weren't the princesses of power She-Ra?
Jen Redlights (host) 10:26:29 AM
@Rob, we're glad to have you!
Mike Lupica 10:26:47 AM
This is not The Thing I Expected to Be Called Upon To Clarify this morning, but yes (Dan) that's She-Ra.
Dan Ruccia 10:26:54 AM
I will say I was kinda sad when my daughter didn't really take to the She-Ra recent remake
Jen Redlights (host) 10:26:57 AM
@Dan, pretty sure, and also I hadn't watched any of these. My brother and I thought He-Man was pretty cool, though.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:27:44 AM
hey if anyone out there is excited about this American Standard song, you'll probably be interested that NEXT WEEK I'll be interviewing their friends Verbal Assault on this here show.
Mike Lupica 10:28:52 AM
An-GER! Batt-ERY!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:29:54 AM
Brian D 10:35:21 AM
Jon Solomon 10:39:14 AM
Oh! That's right! New slot!
Colin 10:40:13 AM
These pleasure f-ers are pretty fun!
Jon Solomon 10:40:53 AM
Belatedly adding that the GVSB reunion show(s) I saw in 2016 were excellent.
Colin 10:40:58 AM
that album art has me wanting a sausage of the grill
DSM 10:42:09 AM
oh, loved that last Michael Beach album!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:43:17 AM
New slot, @Jon, thanks for being here! @DSM - NICE! He's new to me, and I loooove him!
Jon Solomon 10:44:03 AM
Home from getting my bivalent booster. If you're in Central New Jersey you can basically choose your own shot slot at all the major pharmacies.
Teresa Peacock 10:44:18 AM
Best o' the Morning, Jen & Redlight-Runners! So fantastic to hear your show in its new time-slot! YAY! I dated the bass-player of American Standard for about a year, while I was still at NYU. It's so fabulous to hear an old Am-Stand song from around the time we were going out! I'm still in touch with Scott the bassist. I've got to let him know that you played 'It Comes Around' on your inaugural show of the fall season!!
DSM 10:44:23 AM
SF to Australia, I believe
Jen Redlights (host) 10:46:59 AM
Teresa, I love that! I knew them by sight but was a huge fan while they were around and probably saw them a half dozen times. Please do let him know! And VA will be on next week!
Teresa Peacock 10:47:03 AM
Also -- Happiest Birthday to Mark! Hope his extra-special day is stupendous!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:47:30 AM
(I *think* they were friends.)
Jen Redlights (host) 10:47:43 AM
That's so nice! Will pass it on!!
DSM 10:49:06 AM
Good job Jon!
Dan Ruccia 10:50:45 AM
I really want to know what font American Standard used for "Wonderland" on that album cover. It's the perfect mix of sharp and ridiculous
Colin 10:52:33 AM
dan, album came out in 89, so my uneducated guess is they used the designed by hand font
gboss 10:54:39 AM
Looks almost Ralph Steadman-ish
Teresa Peacock 10:54:53 AM
Also, those guys were starving artists and lowly college students back in the day. They probably couldn't afford a better logo.
Dan Ruccia 10:55:04 AM
Yeah, that seems plausible. But then the "n" and "d" glyphs look the same to my eye, so maybe it's not?
Dan Ruccia 10:56:55 AM
I want to believe it's from one of those old scratch-on font type things that existed back then in the pre-digital design world
Colin 10:56:56 AM
i took lessons from trudy pitts in the early 90's for a bit
Jen Redlights (host) 10:57:23 AM
Colin 10:58:18 AM
a fantastic person. thanks for playing her tune
Jen Redlights (host) 10:58:30 AM
I'd love to hear more of her music!
Brian D 11:06:04 AM
Rewind: Jem cartoon featured Bucks County native and bassist for Luna Britta Philips as Jem's singing voice
Colin 11:07:10 AM
I like to nickname those reunion tours as the, oh crap how much is my kid's college tuition gonna be? tour.
Lee Chandler 11:07:40 AM
Jen - your show this summer made my 2hr Fri drive on rt 206...well, as enjoyable as a drive on 206 can be. Thx!
Colin 11:09:14 AM
bri, fun fact!
Brian D 11:09:28 AM
Britta was in that Satisfaction film too... heh. And some Adult Swim animated shows voice acting
Brian D 11:10:38 AM
I think the font they used is American Standard. Hee hee
Jen Redlights (host) 11:14:34 AM
Jen Redlights (host) 11:15:01 AM
@Lee I’m so glad to hear it! Thanks for being here!!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:16:26 AM
@Colin agreed on the reunion tours, but some of them are just so darn GOOD
Dan Ruccia 11:19:25 AM
Jen Redlights (host) 11:20:14 AM
This is totally groovy brunch music, no?
Jon Solomon 11:21:51 AM
I was reminded that this Astute Palate record also has a song called No Queen on it but...
DSM 11:22:27 AM
Sunburned is one I'm surprised is still going in 2022! Not complaining!
Dan Ruccia 11:22:28 AM
Seriously. Also forgot how much I enjoyed this Astute Palate album. This is a great set
fr1dayafternoon 11:22:34 AM
Hell yeah haven’t listened to this Astute Palate in a minute. Love it. This is a killer record
fr1dayafternoon 11:22:47 AM
Great set Jen
Dan Ruccia 11:23:12 AM
I had occasion to interview Jon Maloney earlier this year, and it sounds like Sunburned aren't going anywhere (and they have like 10 bazillion hours of music recorded)
fr1dayafternoon 11:23:13 AM
Whoa an echo in here
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:32 AM
It’s a terrific record! Thanks, @fr1day! Glad to see you!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:46 AM
@Dan wow!!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:55 AM
Would love to hear that
DSM 11:24:57 AM
that's good to hear, Dan
Dan Ruccia 11:25:23 AM
I guess they record like every practice session and concert they've ever had (since it's all improvised). They're slowly releasing highlights on their Bandcamp
fr1dayafternoon 11:25:52 AM
Shameless plug for my Astute Palate story from a couple years ago.
fr1dayafternoon 11:25:58 AM
Alex Hrebin 11:26:05 AM
Definitely groovy
Jen Redlights (host) 11:27:26 AM
Jen Redlights (host) 11:28:51 AM
ooooh great article!! I'll read after the show!
fr1dayafternoon 11:29:19 AM
This Blood Wizard keeps changing like I wouldn’t expect
Jen Redlights (host) 11:29:36 AM
Maybe that's why i am so into it? Love this song.
Brian D 11:38:15 AM
Now junior. Behoove yourself
Jen Redlights (host) 11:38:47 AM
Jon Solomon 11:43:36 AM
Got today’s run in, was most certainly not expecting a Tre Orsi / Lemonheads two-fer as I trotted!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:43:51 AM
I intuited that you needed a boost!
Casey 11:44:16 AM
Hi Jen! Haven't had many chances to catch your show since mine was on right after yours, but I've been listening since Kids On A Crime Spree driving over to mount Laurel today. Really enjoyed it! Thank you for all the music!
Jon Solomon 11:44:22 AM
Proud Scum got
Jon Solomon 11:44:31 AM
me over the top!
Brian D 11:45:21 AM
Proud Scum Got. Or Randy Scouse Git. You decide....
Jen Redlights (host) 11:46:16 AM
excellent, Jon! And @Casey , so glad you are here! Thanks for chiming in!
Brian D 11:47:02 AM
Blood Wizard album title win win "Western Spaghetti"
Jen Redlights (host) 11:48:13 AM
hahahhah yes!
Daniel 11:55:22 AM
Those tunes are great, hope they pissed off my upstairs neighbor.
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 11:56:19 AM
Thanks for the tunes, Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:56:23 AM
Ha, hi, neighbor! 👋
Jen Redlights (host) 11:56:35 AM
Thank you, Rob!
Colin 11:56:43 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 11:56:51 AM
And don’t forget - Verbal Assault on next week!
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 11:56:54 AM

Jon Solomon 11:57:30 AM
