Christine 3:08:39 PM

Xylo🦐TAndy 3:09:32 PM
Thanks Christine, let me call Chef. BAM! BAM! BAM!

Mountain Prawns 3:11:23 PM
I tend to request things that can't be played (FCC), not on purpose
Dan Ruccia 3:11:31 PM
Would be wild to be able to chat from the past as well as record radio in the past
Rofflestomp 3:11:48 PM
Chatin' ain't a playin' lol

Mountain Prawns 3:13:17 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:13:18 PM

Mountain Prawns 3:13:52 PM
I request Swede stoner rock
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:13:58 PM
These prawns will rot! Ok no more prawn talk from me
Rofflestomp 3:14:12 PM
Opening the request lines next week?
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:42 PM
lol Jon yes I heard, given that I am married to a Briton I felt the obligatory sadness, things seem back to normal there though, the money still has her face on it
Mountain Prawns 3:14:53 PM
That Ape Machine Flight album cover resembles Sleep's The Sciences 🤔
Captain Ahab (host) 3:15:25 PM
Riff Mountain your precocious request has been approved
Captain Ahab (host) 3:15:41 PM
for the swede rock i mean
Mountain Prawns 3:15:50 PM
I knew it would LOL 🇸🇪
Mountain Prawns 3:16:16 PM
I have a fucking time machine
Captain Ahab (host) 3:16:30 PM
also, prawn sandwiches are quite popular here
Rofflestomp 3:16:44 PM
Queens at 90ish plus? You bet that dollars is a thing.
Mountain Prawns 3:17:25 PM
In South Australia prawns are called "bugs" as in "bugs & chips"
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:17:43 PM
Prawn sandwish. Is that whole prawns or ground into a paste? Either sounds good
Captain Ahab (host) 3:18:07 PM
they are mini prawns mixed up with mayo
Mountain Prawns 3:18:14 PM
Prawn sangwich as they say in Philly
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:18:36 PM
That sounds delicious especially with some dill or scallions in there
Brian D 3:18:45 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:18:55 PM
yeah the fancy ones can be quite good, I do partake when I am in the mood
Mountain Prawns 3:18:56 PM
Those little shrimp shits are good
Brian D 3:19:00 PM
Rockin rock shrimp
Rofflestomp 3:19:27 PM
Prawn sandwiches should be popular everywhere except in Israel. Just sayin'
Captain Ahab (host) 3:19:38 PM
my favorite british sandwich is probably Coronation Chicken
Captain Ahab (host) 3:19:53 PM
It's like a chicken salad with curry seasoning and raisins lol
Captain Ahab (host) 3:20:27 PM
it was invented to honor the queen's coronation
Mountain Prawns 3:20:30 PM
I mean, English food is world-renowned for its excellence 😶
Brian D 3:20:41 PM
Shrimp meat to black line ratio important. Pros remove the black line tho
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:20:49 PM
Sounds like a munchies craving
Mountain Prawns 3:21:06 PM
I eat shrimp tails
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:21:29 PM
I eat mountains.
Brian D 3:21:37 PM
Eatin shrimp tails. Smokin gasoline
Captain Ahab (host) 3:21:57 PM
haha Riff Mountain yeah I mean I wouldn't put it above any other cuisine but when I'm scanning the aisle for my selected sandwich as part of the £3 meal deal, you bet I've got favorites
Rofflestomp 3:22:31 PM
@Riff Mountain of Lightning Prawns, If it's boiled correctly.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:05 PM
other strange British delicacies I'm rather fond of: black pudding and bovril
Mountain Prawns 3:23:10 PM
My stepdad is from Surrey and makes good Brit chow
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:34 PM
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:24:19 PM
I have yet to ever have the heart to try morcilla or black pudding/blood sausage
Mountain Prawns 3:24:23 PM
Bovril !!
Mountain Prawns 3:24:53 PM
One can put blood cubes into pho at the more authentic places
Xylo🦐TAndy 3:25:40 PM
And also I don't go to any markets who sell anything besides Italian sausage
Mountain Prawns 3:25:45 PM
Or I just build a little pyramid of blood cubes and go ham
Captain Ahab (host) 3:26:32 PM
Mountain Prawns 3:26:59 PM
Duuuubbbbyyaaa prb, join us in the chat, we're talkin eating blood.
Rofflestomp 3:27:25 PM
Surrey is mainly Indian in British Columbia. Just chattin'
Captain Ahab (host) 3:27:26 PM
lol TAndy your comment made me think you shop at markets that ONLY SELL ITALIAN SAUSAGE
Captain Ahab (host) 3:27:33 PM
%100 cipollata diet
C🦐 lin 3:27:35 PM
First time in like two months I get to catch desert cruising and these riffs are shellin!
Christine 3:27:36 PM
@Cap'n Ahab, I second the Coronation chicken sandwiches. Good with tea. 🫖 Black pudding, on the other hand...
Mountain Prawns 3:28:02 PM

Mountain Prawns 3:28:25 PM

Xylo🦐TAndy 3:29:05 PM
Yeah lemme get some Italian sausage cereal, sausage milk, sausage eggs, and a gallon bucket full of 3x1 sausages. Spicy ;)
Mountain Prawns 3:29:33 PM

Xylo🦐TAndy 3:29:47 PM
Colin responsible for nearly killing me with laughter
Captain Ahab (host) 3:29:51 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 3:30:09 PM

Rofflestomp 3:31:15 PM

Lemmy used to eat bacon on white bread, that's it
Captain Ahab (host) 3:36:00 PM
just add ketchup or HP sauce then you have a traditional bacon sandwich and they are pretty good, but the bacon here is very meaty, not like the crispy bacon in the states
Mountain Prawns 3:36:14 PM
The term "no mayonnaise" hurts mine ears, as of dutch lineage
Captain Ahab (host) 3:37:05 PM
mmm hollandaise
Rofflestomp 3:37:30 PM
Dalessandro's last night, grilled onions and peppers, with extra cheese. Perfecta.
Mountain Prawns 3:37:36 PM
[Lemmy, stumbling upstairs to his apartment over a bar in Los Angeles]: Oi! Me needs a bacon sandwich
Rob from prawny Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 🇮🇷 3:38:00 PM

Christine 3:41:27 PM
Hey @Rob! 🦀
Brian D 3:42:26 PM
I dip a chip (French fried shoestring potato) in mayo time and time again. The Irish Rover in Penndel, PA (old Rt 1 location) 10 cent then 15 cent etc wings Saturdays. We'd pack away many a wing, fill up the boneyard plastic baskets, dip many a fry in mayo and down many a pitcher of Guinness .
Brian D 3:43:08 PM

This riff is played with vice grips instead of guitar picks.
Brian D 4:20:13 PM
They have to quick re clamp them on the string before each note. Pros.
Mountain Prawns 4:20:24 PM

Mountain Prawns 4:50:31 PM
WE ARE PSYCADA [then spells for audience]
Rofflestomp 4:52:18 PM
This trumps all the Sirius channels! I used to have Sirius for driving cross country which is cool in the mountains but tough water in New Jersey.
Xylo🦐TAndy 4:52:25 PM
Big thanks for the show Captain!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:52:55 PM

Rofflestomp 4:55:25 PM
Much Capt'n love! Loves and wishes!
