TAndy 10:00:49 AM
Hey! I nearly thought this was Captain Ahab till I heard the second half of the bumper lolol
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:02:39 AM
Greetings and Salutations, DJ Casey!
Casey (host) 10:02:55 AM
Welcome welcome!
jimbeaux 10:03:51 AM
We interrupt this grocery store run to CRANK THE STOOGES
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:03:54 AM
THE STOOGES❣️ Fun start to the show!
Casey (host) 10:04:11 AM
TAndy, I made that bumper with LA Blues originally but I made one with so that other DJs could add their own song to it. I'ver heard her use it before and I'm glad she took to it
Casey (host) 10:04:48 AM
Glad The Stooges were a hit to start they're still probably my all-time favorite band
TAndy 10:09:02 AM
This time I won't be distracted by a flea market or a nap, listening straight through for the summer finale
TAndy 10:09:07 AM
Good morning MrM
Casey (host) 10:09:35 AM
An event not to be missed, must-see TV
TAndy 10:10:28 AM
I'll be watching the Woodstock '99 docuseries again while watching too. I can't get enough of that damn thing
Casey (host) 10:11:42 AM
Yeah! I enjoyed that
Casey (host) 10:12:33 AM
Instead of 3 days of peace and music it was 3 days like of the 90s version of Disco Demolition Night
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:13:42 AM
All-time favourite band! That’s a nifty tidbit! Trying to figure out what that reveals about you ? 🧐
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:14:25 AM
Hey, TAndy
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:14:41 AM
Hi, jimbeaux!
TAndy 10:15:28 AM
Whoops hey jimbeaux
TAndy 10:16:16 AM
Except for the dirty water and shitty bathroom situation, Woodstock 99 really is the modern big corpo festival experience. If not for the two issues I mentioned above I would have loved to be there lolol
Casey (host) 10:18:32 AM
Yeah the bathroom situation was hard to watch🤢
TAndy 10:19:13 AM
It really was just the product of monetary greed on the part of the organizers though. We already have proven successful multi-day festivals. Tomorrowland, Firefly, Defqon.1, Coachella, a bunch more. Sad it went sour back then, we could have had a regular festival for the Mid-Atlantic/New England area. Ain't much here compared to out west.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:19:39 AM
Casey (host) 10:20:18 AM
Had to drive around the Made In America perimeter last night to give my friend a ride, but this is probably the first year I actually wished I could be at the festival
Casey (host) 10:20:29 AM
Pavement is another candidate for all-time favorite band
Casey (host) 10:20:46 AM
Mostly for different reasons
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:21:50 AM
Got it. I easily have 100+ “All-Time Favourites” ❤️
Casey (host) 10:21:57 AM
Haha same
Casey (host) 10:22:24 AM
Pavement and Stooges would make even the shortest lists though
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:36:23 AM
Pavement on my short list too. Still “discovering” The Stooges. 😃
Casey (host) 10:37:24 AM
Fortunately there's not a lot to "discover" so to speak. I have not listened to their reunion albums but I haven't heard anything that would compell me to do so
Casey (host) 10:38:21 AM
Iggy's solo career obviously is worth listening to and I enjoy some Destroy All Monsters with Ron Asheton
Casey (host) 10:38:36 AM
Fun House and Raw Power are the real essentials though
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:40:30 AM
I approve of these Spoilers! Very helpful! Cheers! 🎉
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:46:58 AM
Whoa 🤯 THIS SET‼️😈
Casey (host) 10:48:10 AM
Needed to get some Sabbath in before the summer was over. I heard Dan from Tomorrow Is An Octopus play this one driving home from the city last summer. Great track for cruising, skating, biking, etc.
Casey (host) 10:49:30 AM
Amazing to me what a great drummer Bill Ward is and he's admitted in interviews that some of these albums he was so off his head he doesn't remember recording them
TAndy 10:54:57 AM
This is such a jam
Casey (host) 10:55:43 AM
Would cruis into work blasting this one before winter was over
Casey (host) 10:56:12 AM
LPs are finally back in stock too 🙏
the_dude 10:56:26 AM
Yo everyone, great show already Casey! Hope you have some fill ins next season!
Casey (host) 10:57:04 AM
Thanks dude! I'm sure you will hear from me again before the year is over
the_dude 10:57:19 AM
the_dude 10:57:46 AM
Also, there was a track you played last week , vision talk by Crime of Passing, enjoyed it but it totally reminded me of another song and finally figured it out
Jon Solomon 10:58:34 AM
Hey hey!
Casey (host) 10:58:39 AM
Hi Jon
Casey (host) 10:58:49 AM
good to have you here!
Jon Solomon 10:59:05 AM
Waiting for our fantasy football draft positions to be announced in two minutes...

TAndy 10:59:27 AM
Hey the_dude and jon
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:59:32 AM
Hello, DJ JonSolomon!
the_dude 10:59:33 AM
When jokers attack by bjm, listen to them side by side - and Mr. M! My favorite Californian
the_dude 10:59:55 AM
Tandy, my favorite Andy!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:00:11 AM
TAndy 11:00:18 AM
And yeah Casey that was a rare winter-feeling track for me. I like that hoodie they have listed too. Also thanks dude :)
Casey (host) 11:01:12 AM
Dude, I'll have to listen to that one. I have a ton of BJM on my phone but they have such a huge catalog
the_dude 11:02:40 AM
Bjm is awesome, one of my favorite bands, that's one of their most popular tracks, a good one though. Definitely get thru that backlog! Once you get into them there's a lot to explore
Casey (host) 11:07:56 AM
Jon and I have our fantasy football draft after the show today. A few years ago in a work league I made my team the Aaron Jonestown Masscre with Aaron Jones's face on the BJM logo
DSM 11:08:59 AM
Christian Death love to hear it
DSM 11:09:40 AM
Howdy all
Casey (host) 11:09:55 AM
We love a band that basically invented their own genre
Casey (host) 11:10:09 AM
The gang really is all here today
DSM 11:11:19 AM

Casey (host) 11:23:59 AM
Do you remember? The sweatiest night of September?
TAndy 11:25:17 AM
I didn't know skeletons could feel heat
Casey (host) 11:25:56 AM
You got nerves in your bones, that's why it hurts when you break em
Casey (host) 11:26:07 AM
Skeletons can feel pain, both physical and emotional

Lol at the team name, and yeah love their genre hopping. Don't love my speaker set up going in and out!

Yeah it's a temperamental blue tooth dongle.. why don't they make phones with a headphone any more, * hank Hill voice*
Casey (host) 11:44:49 AM
When the high is in the 70s you can bet I'll be driving around listening to JMC and Slumberland Records artists
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:45:11 AM
Hellz Yeeaahh!
the_dude 11:45:30 AM
Check out nailing honey to the tree by bjm, these song tracks always remind me of each other. Has kpc ever done a Honey themed show? That'd be a good one
DSM 11:45:32 AM
