i've been traveling all summer anyway so my chatty has been spotty
Jen Redlights (host) 10:20:38 AM
well this is perfect timing, then. Welcome to fall.
David Shortell 10:53:28 AM
Did I just hear Jen say "Crucial Youth posi"? I wonder if Verbal Assault got that NJ reference.
Steve Volaric 10:54:23 AM
Love Verbal Assault! Caught them a couple times in the 80s and it was life changing.
Colin 11:00:39 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 11:01:34 AM

Jon Solomon 11:20:35 AM
Good stuff, DJ Posi-Core. Went a bit further than planned on today’s run so I could keep listening…
Jen Redlights (host) 11:21:20 AM
thanks, @Jon! I'm really glad that worked out well!
Jon Solomon 11:21:55 AM
Now for a seltzer and more show!
David Shortell 11:22:46 AM
Zounds is a contraction of "God's wounds", yet it rhymes with "sounds".
unoclay 11:23:38 AM
bwahaa the voice sounds like flight of the concords. changes the flavor of this entirely
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:53 AM
@David I had no idea!! I've gone "zownds," as the heathens would.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:24:19 AM
hahah totally Concords...I love this Todd Briefly stuff. Still no idea if it's a person or a band.
Lee Chandler 11:39:54 AM
Always a nice day to hear Rain Parade!
