New schedule, new day. Who dis?
Brian D 12:09:35 PM
DANGER BIRD! Love Zuma. Classic lp. The Horse in full Horse power
Jon Solomon 12:12:34 PM
Here. We. Go.
Number 6 12:14:57 PM
Hi Dan, good start to your new time.
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:18:07 PM
@ Dan Ruccia (host) "Slicked" by Weaves is an outstanding track by a killer band -- of whom I was ignorant a scant 5 minutes ago. Again, it's proven: "WPRB plays the music you didn't know you liked!" Thanks, Dan.
Brian D 12:19:56 PM
Slicked had some nice Glitter and Glam sprinkled in there
Number 6 12:20:48 PM
"WPRB plays the music you didn't know you liked!" This is true for me as well!
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:23:36 PM
I think I also discovered Weaves through WPRB. I think Jen (?) played something by them a few months ago
Brian D 12:32:00 PM
Nice! I just listened to this Rocket Ship song on Peanut Butter Wolf's Jukebox 45s lp!
Brian D 12:32:37 PM
An lp i would only know about thanks to wprb some 20 odd plus years ago
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:32:58 PM
@ Number 6 Somebody (I wish it had been me, but it wasn't) came up with the phrase "WPRB plays the music you didn't know you liked!" in a chat during either an Esoterica or Readie Righteous show. We other chatters enthusiastically declared that should be the slogan for the next WPRB fundraiser, emblazoned on all manner of merch & bling -- because it's so true!
Brian D 12:35:27 PM
Digging the slim new radiorethink pop up player today. First i saw that
Brian D 12:36:38 PM
Bed set break music today reminds me of the quiet breakdown of Marquee Moon "bird chirps " Verlaine gtr bits
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:40:48 PM
The recent flowers-corsano duo album!
Brian D 12:41:06 PM
I first heard 13th Flr Evs version of Rollercoaster late night flipping through the dial New Year's eve / day about 30 or so years ago. Finished taping the Dead broadcast and then flipped on up the dial ... Nice! Probably 1990-1991
Number 6 12:41:46 PM
I've come up with a few sayings, like "WPRB, the ONLY radio station that matters!"
Brian D 12:42:08 PM
Had to have been wprb that i flipped to
Brian D 1:02:30 PM
Very very Jansch like
richard lyons 1:11:36 PM
BPB!!!!! Hi Dan and chat gang!
Brian D 1:14:01 PM
He said it on telly! Err i mean radio or.. i mean wireless...
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:14:29 PM
There’s the show title!
Brian D 1:15:08 PM
If it's wireless... how do they plug it in? Who are these radios?
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:17:52 PM
Apparently I am all about stumbling over words this set break
gboss 1:21:59 PM
it's gonna take some time to adjust to the new schedule
Brian D 1:22:51 PM
Ouch more Afro Funk greatness to overburden my shopping cart!
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:23:47 PM
There's just sooo much!
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:23:57 PM
Hey gboss!
Brian D 1:26:22 PM
Ernesto Djedje definitely on pre order. And i found another of lp his elsewhere (digi) with that Ziglibithiens title track. Looks like the new pre order one on Bandcamp has that song plus others.... gotta get them all!
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:28:21 PM
That Djedje is so effing good. The purest sunshine
gboss 1:28:57 PM
Hey Dan! Not familiar with Tom Tom Club but does it really lay bare the Fela influence of the Talking Heads
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:30:19 PM
Oh, totally. Tina and and Chris from the talking heads knew what they were doing
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:31:00 PM
(they being tom Tom club)
Brian D 1:53:38 PM
Beautiful. Right out of the gate
Brian D 1:55:37 PM
Ya great LP art too!
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:07:19 PM
I legit can't wait to hang it on my wall
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:21:33 PM
The saxophonist id Zoh Amba!!
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:21:42 PM
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:29:09 PM
Got a meeting from now til probably the end of the show, so I'll take this moment to say thanks for listening, y'all!
gboss 2:34:10 PM
Thanks, Dan
Captain Ahab 2:38:27 PM

Brian D 2:53:55 PM
Great show Dan!
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:57:17 PM
Back to say that this Chris Forsyth album is 🤌
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:57:53 PM
And apparently this track includes Marshall Allen somewhere or other
