I am here today filling in today for Esoterica to say THANK YOU to all of you who listen to and/or support WPRB! We literally could not do it without you and we are so so grateful.

But I'm also putting this picture here cause while I like the idea of giving thanks and eating food with people who you love, Thanksgiving celebrates the kickoff party for a genocide!

OK Thanks love yinz!!!

richard lyons 12:57:25 PM
probably not. hi Brian!
Commie Francis (host) 1:01:46 PM
i lied about sparks, i probably AM going to play them
Brian D 1:01:50 PM
Good book that Tommy James auto bio. Cool tidbit from that was the main track for Draggin the Line was a tape loop. Got the best 20-30 seconds or so. That's what made it so hypnotic and catchy. Never duplicated quite like that.
Krista 1:02:13 PM
Meyer got sick right as we were leaving so we are home. Got a rotisserie chicken, instant mashed, green beans and already had 4 pies
Commie Francis (host) 1:02:48 PM
aw poor mayer. i enjoyed your show this morning!
Commie Francis (host) 1:02:56 PM
meyer rather
Brian D 1:03:14 PM
Speakin of pies we watched The Automat docu on HBO. That was interesting. Mass production of home made quality pies (savory & sweet). And tons of other foods. Cool story.
Commie Francis (host) 1:04:06 PM
i was always fascinated by the idea of automats, i will have to watch that!
Brian D 1:05:00 PM
It is the story of a specific company, the main famous automat co Horn & Hardart. Started in Philly. And many locations later in NYC.
Brian D 1:05:48 PM
Common thread is that the clientele came from all over the world and all up and down the classes.
Shut Up Wesley 1:07:52 PM
@Brian D When my family visited downtown Philly when I was a kid a trip to Horn and Hardart’s was usually included! My favorite was Salisbury steak and home fries.
Ossy Hyouka 1:09:50 PM
Thanksgiving greetings Commy and all!
Shut Up Wesley 1:10:21 PM
AUTOMAT is an excellent documentary. Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner are great, as always.
Shut Up Wesley 1:13:29 PM
Wishing Commie Francis and all chatters a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving. And as God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly. 🦃
Ossy Hyouka 1:14:05 PM
Actually they can fly, the wild ones
Brian D 1:14:13 PM
Yeah loved seeing Mel interviewed. Always a pro. And sounded good singing his lil automat song at the end. Exactly as expected that little ditty
Commie Francis (host) 1:14:17 PM
wild turkeys are beautiful
Commie Francis (host) 1:14:42 PM

Ossy Hyouka 1:17:30 PM

That Scaffold song, or parts there of, were used in a British commercial for I think it was Cadburys Rose's sweets, it was a long time ago but effective, thanks for the memories!
