I have seen photographic proof of this meeting of minds
Christine 8:12:26 PM
Very cool. !
Xylo🦪TAndy 8:16:06 PM
Glad the Devo experience was as sick as you made it out to be! Much respect to them
Christine 8:19:02 PM
Great photo!

This show has BLASTED OFF 🛸🛸🛸
Ossy Hyouka 8:25:40 PM
Mark Mothersbaugh, I see the dudes name in Rugrats and I think Wild Thornberrys!!
Dana K (host) 8:26:59 PM
he's had a very successful career outside of Devo
Ossy Hyouka 8:28:07 PM
I saw some on his wiki page, big legacy he has
Xylo🦪TAndy 8:28:24 PM
Yes, he did do the music for Klasky Csupo cartoons and supervised the music production for the first Jak & Daxter game. Apparently he wasn't involved too much in the production of the latter, but was overseeing the composer for the music, Josh Mancell.
Andrew Gruen 8:29:26 PM
good evening
Andrew Gruen 8:29:54 PM
nice pic with mark!!! congrats on meeting him!
Christine 8:30:19 PM
🚀 🚀 🚀
Dana K (host) 8:31:15 PM
he was SO kind and gracious with his time given that he was being swarmed with awkward nerds all night. it seemed like he was genuinely enjoying himself.
Xylo🦪TAndy 8:31:42 PM
I honestly thought this was gonna be a kind gizz track till the vocals came in hahah
Christine 8:32:01 PM
I loved watching Yo Gabba Gabba with my niece back when she was little. What fun music and creativity. I always smiled at Mark's drawing segment.
Dana K (host) 8:52:11 PM
quiet chat!
Rofflestomp 8:53:09 PM
Hi folks! Dang, another missed opportunity to get my awkward nerd on... :)
Rofflestomp 8:53:22 PM
Cool ass photo!
Dana K (host) 8:54:18 PM
thank you! now i've met two of my three biggest teenage music idols...
Richard Lyons (1) 8:56:20 PM
YAY! The Cool Greenhouse!
Dana K (host) 8:57:40 PM
dunno how i missed this one when it came out out a month ago...i guess it's been almost a month since i was last on the radio!
Christine 8:57:42 PM
🪨 🥔 🍠 🥔 🥔 🎸 🤘 🪨
Rofflestomp 8:58:16 PM
That is worth the full ticket price! Two out of three, is not so bad and plenty of opportunities on the horizon. Still, I've only met a couple of personal greats. Time is slippery.
Dana K (host) 8:59:46 PM
colin from wire was the first i met...andy partridge from XTC would be the third. i'm not sure if he leaves his shed in england.
Richard Lyons (1) 9:01:36 PM
Happy too learn that Bored Games was 17-year-old Shayne Carter!
Rofflestomp 9:02:30 PM
Andy Partridge! Geeze I think that is on a very high quality shelf. I'm rooting' for ya! Please say hi for me. You have the tenacity for sure.
Dana K (host) 9:05:51 PM
they DID just have an XTC convention in swindon, england - apparently ran into an organizational snafu due to happening the weekend after the queen died
Rofflestomp 9:07:30 PM
I am gonna take a guess that Andy wasn't gonna play that gig anyway, but that would be a cool go to event.
Dana K (host) 9:07:50 PM
play, definitely not
Rofflestomp 9:11:16 PM
A band I love called The Balancing Act almost had Partridge produce their album except for those darn contractual thingy's. It was still awesome as a pice of work, but I would have love Andy's spin.
Commie Francis ☭ 9:13:38 PM

great show tonight, Dana K ♥️
Dana K (host) 9:30:02 PM
thankee, richard!
Richard Lyons (1) 9:33:39 PM
It was fun having Commie Francis fill in for Jon Wednesday!!
Dana K (host) 9:39:17 PM
sadly i work wednesdays right when jon's show is on (but not for long, just got a new gig)
Xylo🦪TAndy 9:39:26 PM
Hey Commie, Roffle, Richard!
Rofflestomp 9:40:20 PM
Xylophone home!
Richard Lyons (1) 9:44:09 PM
Nice, Dana K! HEYO TAndy, Christine, Rofflestomp, Ossy Hyouka and jimbeaux 😃
jimbeaux 9:49:11 PM
Commie Francis ☭ 9:50:17 PM
Bill was very into the last song
Commie Francis ☭ 9:50:40 PM
He came into the car and was like WHAT IS THIS
Commie Francis ☭ 9:50:56 PM
And thanks Richard, it was a fun show to do?
Dana K (host) 9:50:57 PM
assuming you don't mean the policeband song, that's another band playing tomorrow
Commie Francis ☭ 9:51:18 PM
Yeah I meant real people
Rofflestomp 9:51:46 PM
I no longer own a police scanner.
Commie Francis ☭ 9:51:59 PM
That fest sounds excellent, why do I have a stupid radio show on Saturdays
Dana K (host) 9:52:13 PM
it starts at noon!
Commie Francis ☭ 9:52:41 PM
Dana K (host) 9:52:57 PM
i'm not sure when i'm going, i imagine the philly bands are all opening - it's crazy that i haven't actually seen MESH
Rofflestomp 9:55:52 PM
Opening acts have killed too many shows for me. I just don't wanna feel like I should have already left by the time my band gets onstage. Sigh...
Dana K (host) 9:56:56 PM
this is an all day thinger, but i'm interested in just about every band playing...but i also don't have the energy to stand around UA all day, so i'm not sure
jimbeaux 9:57:54 PM
This is sooooooo goooooooood
Rofflestomp 9:58:25 PM
I hear ya, pack a lunch kinda gig. Gotta be psyched for that to go all in for sure..
Rofflestomp 9:59:15 PM
What jimbeaux said. Nice stuff for sure.
Colin 10:01:46 PM
i just found out about this stellar show a day ago reinforced by the selections of our dj. I did have plans tomorrow night but now i have internal conflict
Ambrose Hughes 10:02:37 PM
Howdy Dana K!
Ambrose Hughes 10:03:11 PM
Hello the chat!
Colin 10:04:11 PM
hey ambrose! I have just logged in as well.
Colin 10:05:10 PM
i had isreali food tonight and my fingers smell like harisa rn. i don't want to wash them.
Ambrose Hughes 10:05:20 PM
Yo Colin!
Rofflestomp 10:05:22 PM
Hi you kids staying up late on the internets.
Colin 10:06:52 PM
roffle, i have work responsibilities tomorrow morning so i won't be up too ate.... in theory
Ambrose Hughes 10:07:02 PM
Hi @ Rofflestomp, um ...not exactly late here on the east coast!
Rofflestomp 10:07:08 PM
I only really have pure Kosher at my aunt's house. LOL
Dana K (host) 10:07:36 PM
the third hour chatters have arrived!
Colin 10:08:24 PM
this may have been food truck bougie isreali but the chefs born and raised.
Colin 10:08:53 PM
we have arrived in time for the third act! wait, this is on the show tomorrow too?!?!
Dana K (host) 10:09:17 PM
ghosh are playing, yeah!
Rofflestomp 10:11:18 PM
Too cool Colin! I can see a true Israeli gut truck in Queens or Union, New Jersey doing well for sure.
yoni from kdu 10:12:00 PM
Third hour chatter checking in. Hello.
yoni from kdu 10:13:06 PM
Oh wow. I haven't actually listened to these remixes. I was thinking about how I know those words but not the song. Makes sense.
Ambrose Hughes 10:13:36 PM
@Dana K, have you heard of a band, Librarians With Hickeys?
Dana K (host) 10:14:00 PM
i'm not sure if this is on the remix album or not, it's from an earlier compilation
Dana K (host) 10:14:07 PM
and ambrose, i have not
Ambrose Hughes 10:15:05 PM
@Dana K, I think you'd like 'em!
Dana K (host) 10:15:17 PM
i'll add 'em to my list!
Ambrose Hughes 10:15:36 PM
Rofflestomp 10:15:39 PM
@yoni from kdu, yea, a skip in the record is what I expect to hear and catches me off guard when there is none. That's my analogy and I'm stickin' to it.
Ambrose Hughes 10:18:10 PM
@Dana K, great pic of you and Mark Mothersbaugh btw!😍
Dana K (host) 10:18:50 PM
thank you! there's one out there with wkdu yoni in the mix too
Colin 10:19:51 PM
so glad to be in the moment, hearing all this over the fm airwaves. must have been some strong harissa earlier.....
Rofflestomp 10:22:50 PM
@yoni from kdu, KDU is a fine station, but all over the map sometimes. It's a challenge to listen to, but a good DJ is worth the ride.
Rofflestomp 10:23:37 PM
Verry college radio.
yoni from kdu 10:23:42 PM
Would love to hear Three Johns after 2 Johnnies
yoni from kdu 10:24:29 PM
Also, wow, this is great. Early Savage Republic vibes but much prettier.
Dana K (host) 10:25:22 PM
Ossy Hyouka 10:26:04 PM
Hello Richard from an hour ago, lmao
Dana K (host) 10:26:32 PM
i heard "the blues run the game" on WKDU today and could have done with a content warning
Dana K (host) 10:26:38 PM
always get the sads when i hear that one
yoni from kdu 10:27:42 PM
I'll let the DJ know job well done
Colin 10:28:19 PM
there is a pretty good punk show on kdu on sunday nights i have been listening too.
Colin 10:29:16 PM
but practical electronics is back on sunday nights now. and i like that one.
Scooter France 10:33:27 PM
great show!
Dana K (host) 10:33:30 PM
yoni refuses to promote his 10pm sunday show here so i will do it for him
Dana K (host) 10:33:37 PM
Rofflestomp 10:34:12 PM
I boycotted the internet for a while and KDU was the only goto, along with Temple, NPR and XPN, I can't do more than one rotation envelope on XPN these days, but they were once great. Oh, how the might have fallen.
yoni from kdu 10:34:53 PM
I didn't want to step on your show to promote my own, dawg!
yoni from kdu 10:35:36 PM
Also I'm not the punk show. I'm post-punk / jazz / weirdo nonsense. I can also be punk. It depends on the week.
Rofflestomp 10:35:53 PM
Will tune in for sure. I wish more hours in the day sometimes.
Dana K (host) 10:35:57 PM
you're not the punk show but you are the punk DJ
yoni from kdu 10:36:14 PM
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:36:23 PM
post-punk and jazz? 👀 i like the sound of that
Colin 10:36:50 PM
I do listen to yoni's show too. it'll take yall on a good ride.
Rofflestomp 10:36:50 PM
Weirdo nonsense has a nice ring to it.
yoni from kdu 10:37:54 PM
Last week I played Hangedup, Golden Palominos, Z'ev, The Ex, Mdou Moctar, Prolapse, Young Gods, Human Adult Band, and of course some Pharoah Sanders
Dana K (host) 10:38:08 PM
if yoni and i ever have a show at the same time it will be a true battle to the death
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:38:30 PM
If I'm still lucid I'll be sure to be tuned in >:)
Christine 10:38:49 PM
Thanks for mentioning yoni's show, Dana! 📻 🎶
yoni from kdu 10:38:50 PM
This Anteloper stuff is the shit. RIP Jaimie Branch.
Colin 10:39:10 PM
jus gonna have to stack your stereos and listen to them both at the same time.
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:39:41 PM
I see this about an electronic music marathon? oh shit
Ambrose Hughes 10:40:00 PM
@yoni, dito!
Christine 10:40:43 PM
Speaking of double-listening, I am currently listening to Land of the Lost as well as Don't Back The Front. 📻 📻
Dana K (host) 10:41:27 PM
i used to listen to LOTL all the time before i had a friday night slot
Christine 10:41:29 PM
It's tough on the last Friday of the month when you're also on, Dana!
Rofflestomp 10:41:51 PM
I could tape two fly's farting across the street so, no worries.
Colin 10:42:05 PM
christine flexing boss radio listening skills on a friday night!
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:42:16 PM
Oh no, the EMM sets are on soundcloud. I'm gonna be busy listening to some of that during my downtime 👀👀
Christine 10:42:32 PM
@Colin 😊
Ossy Hyouka 10:43:14 PM
I listen to duo songs and stations too, Christine, especially on Friday nights and weekends!
Ossy Hyouka 10:43:45 PM
Doubles the fun, classic rnb/hip hop sounds of philly!
Christine 10:44:34 PM
Ossy, ood on you...I don't know how you do it! It's like switching back and forth between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. 🧠 ⚡️
Colin 10:45:04 PM
anteloper has me in a good way rn
Rofflestomp 10:45:21 PM
Ossy does know the schedules at KDU. lol
Richard Lyons (1) 10:46:21 PM
Yes, yoni, rest in power Jamie Branch.
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:46:30 PM
WTF. DJ Starkey, DJ Haram, Francois G, and Josh FUCKIN Wink were on past lineups??? Oh lordy lord I'll need to tune into the marathon when it's up.
Dana K (host) 10:47:01 PM
it's so good, colin. what a huge loss in jaimie branch
Colin 10:48:03 PM
Tandy, i just opened that in a tab for later exploration.
Richard Lyons (1) 10:48:48 PM
Rofflestomp 10:48:56 PM
The funeral procession has had so many greats passing in it these last weeks.
Ossy Hyouka 10:49:23 PM
Lmao Rofflestomp, also q102 knows their going all out every friday night and Christine, greats to you for able to listen to two different songs at once, which can be mentally overwhelming, yeah.
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:49:27 PM
It's overwhelming how much there is, Colin. I love it. Similar feeling of having so much info in front of me when I decided to download every Plastician dj mix for Rinse FM. It's so much music.
Christine 10:50:10 PM
Colin 10:50:30 PM
I have enjoyed the level jamie is being celebrated. the world is recognizing and remembering the talent and vibes.
yoni from kdu 10:51:16 PM
EMM 2022 is next weekend, btw! Looking forward to a week off but also looking forward to tuning in and listening to some beats
Colin 10:52:07 PM
tandy, i get to blast music all day at work tomorrow so locked and loaded.
Rofflestomp 10:52:09 PM
Hey, thanks Dana! Very cool tunes tonight. Much appreciated.
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:52:10 PM
Electronic (dance) music has always been my #1, so I'll be sure to tune in as much as I can. Otherwise, I'll wait for the mix drops 😎 (Gonna need a new hard drive just for music again)
Ossy Hyouka 10:52:11 PM
107.9 got Friday party throwback rnb and hip hop mixes, all the way to 12am

Xylo🦪TAndy 10:53:37 PM
Too much losses in music these past years, it's a damn shame.
Christine 10:53:57 PM
Thank you, Dana K! Hope to hear you on the radio again soon. 🎙 📡 📻
Xylo🦪TAndy 10:54:12 PM
Ossy Hyouka 10:54:29 PM
Love the sounds, sights and smells of outer space and all their astronomical features, great fitting to play stuff like Super Mario Galaxy
