We are all Neymar, spinning our way endlessly through the radio waves
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:01:46 PM
Also, hello! Chat is open!
Brian D 12:01:52 PM
Stop. Drop. Rock
Brian D 12:01:58 PM
And. Roll.
Christine 𓅓 12:02:39 PM
Body shirts! Regular shirts!
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:02:49 PM
And roll and roll and roll and roll
Christine 𓅓 12:03:03 PM
I love that station ID. Hi Dan 🐙
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:03:11 PM
I wonder if Neymar is wearing a body shirt or a regular shirt as he spins?
Rob M 12:08:57 PM
I'm pretty sure while living in Indiana I heard on NPR that bag pipes are a Christmas tradition in Italy too. The shepherds come down from the hill and play or something.
Brian D 12:11:28 PM
Irish bands often have the smaller Uilleann pipes (Chieftains Paddy Moloney RIP etc). And the Spanish / Galician pipes yeah, heard of them too but not the Italian pipes. I guess anywhere all over the world and centuries they may have made that air bladder wind instruments. Cool
Brian D 12:12:16 PM
The Soccer. Guys. Get. Shirts!
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:14:48 PM
I'll have to ask my dad, who grew up in southern Italy, about that. The one Christmas I was over there, I don't remember seeing them, but then I was also 6, so who knows
Brian D 12:15:02 PM
When I see the word for the Italian pipes "baghet" now all I can think of is Tim and Eric "Spaghett!". Someone needs to so a parody
Brian D 12:15:20 PM
Brian D 12:16:44 PM
Looks like baghet is more of a N Italy thing (Bergamo in Lombardia)
Brian D 12:22:12 PM
That sonic tooth cover was great! Music behind it all reminds me of those Tuluum Shimmering instrumentals.
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:23:18 PM
It's such a delightful reinterpretation. I really gotta spend some time with that whole comp
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:24:24 PM
prompted by this article: https://daily.bandcamp.com/label-profile/chapter-music-label-profile
Brian D 12:24:41 PM
Loooooo and John did a nice tribute to Andy here. This, "New York ", "Magic and Loss ", VU reunion live and Cale solo around this time all strong. Was really listening to a ton of Lou / VU around that time
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:42:12 PM
Are you ready for some cheery, major key black metal???
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:46:58 PM
Jimmy, always Jimmy ::shakes head::
Lee Chandler 12:47:30 PM
Question Mad Chatters: When listening via stream on Iphone 8+, can't post to chat. Suggestions? What am I missing?
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:48:52 PM
Weird. I don't know jack about iPhones, so I'm probably no help.
Christine 𓅓 12:52:57 PM
Me neither; I have a Galaxy.
Brian D 12:53:51 PM
Ahhh this is the NEU! cover! Nice
richard lyons 12:54:05 PM
Lee, I have the same problem with my 2nd gen SE iPhone. I log in and nothing...
Rofflestomp 12:54:27 PM
My uncle had a Ford Galaxy. ")
Brian D 12:55:26 PM
Rev Horton Heat had a Galaxie 500 (note the -ie at end)
the other andrew 12:56:03 PM
whoa this is great! i saw dummy and lifeguard a couple of times this summer and they were excellent
Rofflestomp 12:56:27 PM
@Lee - You are missing a better monthly Phone plan. :)
the other andrew 12:56:49 PM
lifeguard did a This Heat cover
Brian D 12:57:08 PM
I'd say try the 15 different urls and ways of linking to the chat... but I don't know nuffin bout the bite outta fruit company
Brian D 12:57:57 PM
That one tune by the band named Terry Gross always reminds me of Hallo Gallo
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:58:26 PM
Andrew, I heard that tour was excellent. This was recorded on that tour (ironically in Durham, where I live, but I didn't go to that show for whatever reason)
Rofflestomp 1:01:40 PM
@Brian - They told me to change the y to I and add es in an expanding universe, but I refused.
Lee Chandler 1:01:56 PM
Thanks anyhow. Was given to me awhile back - I've never used it for a phone, just as a mini computer.
the other andrew 1:02:10 PM
Horsegirl was the headliner for one of the shows and they were also excellent
Rofflestomp 1:03:13 PM
@Lee - I totally get that. I have an iPhone 8 in my junk drawer that is locked up.
Brian D 1:03:22 PM
I still have some of my devices set up with bookmarks that use the old spinitron url for chat. Sometimes i go to the main website now playing box and click from there n sometimes i click on the day's calendar grid spot for current show via main website, and whew sometimes i type the wprb dot com slash chat out... which leads to a diff url... all those little stepkid chat methods yield slightly diff connection and display page results at diff times
Jon Solomon 1:06:01 PM
I still need to check out the Lifeguard record I have bookmarked. One of the members is the son of a pal from Chicago.
Christine 𓅓 1:08:21 PM
Rest in peace, Jaimie.
Lee Chandler 1:09:21 PM
Ha! Thx @Brian - you rock! Spinitron url it is!
DSM 1:11:40 PM
love song for static blast and clowns
Lee Chandler 1:11:59 PM
Ty all for the input.
DSM 1:12:09 PM
kinda sounds like apples and clowns
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:12:27 PM
Thanks, FCC...
Christine 𓅓 1:13:05 PM
Good job with the static bursts, though. Our ears are safe
Jon Solomon 1:14:08 PM
I've never braved making a clean edit of this one. If I still had my hat on I'd tip it in your direction...
Rofflestomp 1:15:39 PM
Dead air bursts? I guess the FCC can guess their hearts out.
DSM 1:18:12 PM
I know this isn't how it works, but I love the imaginary image of 2 FCC agents in an unmarked white van posted up outside the wprb studio closely listening on a little portable transistor radio, waiting to slide the side door open and raid
Jon Solomon 1:20:27 PM
One has a mustache, the other does not.
DSM 1:22:39 PM
Brian D 1:22:54 PM
Or a very tall van big enough to accommodate a large auditorium inside and Statler & Waldorf are the FCC agents sitting way up in the box suite just harrumphing at it all...
Lee Chandler 1:23:17 PM
In disheveled & unmatching office wear. One w/a bad combover.
Rofflestomp 1:23:25 PM
I love the idea of a couple of guys in the weird antenna vans always lurking. It's actually a real thing.
Rofflestomp 1:24:49 PM
Rouge radio is out there.
Rofflestomp 1:25:25 PM
The pirates
Rofflestomp 1:26:21 PM
Now they just go online though I think.
DSM 1:28:03 PM
recently read that 40 Watts from Nowhere book about a pirate station in LA late 90's, was a fun read as it all took place in a neighborhood I used to live in
Rofflestomp 1:29:08 PM
The dark web while it was still in beta.
Lee Chandler 1:29:25 PM
I'd like to say the vans are disguised in plain sight with a window full of parking tickets or a boot on the tire, but that seems too clever for certain...agencies.
DSM 1:30:12 PM
Was that the Rick Rubin produced Neil Young?
DSM 1:32:04 PM
It was! Didn't sound as "brick wall limiter" as usual, was curious how it'd go with Neil and him
Rofflestomp 1:35:28 PM
This is awesome Dan. Instant +1 to my play list!
Rofflestomp 1:37:08 PM
Make that +2.
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:37:42 PM
@roffle: Hammered Hulls is Alec MacKaye+Mary Timmony+guitar and drums!
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:38:13 PM
@dsm: I was frankly surprised about how gentle the new NY+crazy horse album is
Rofflestomp 1:39:47 PM
Thanks Dan. Very positive indeed.
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:40:46 PM
I'm guessing Brian is going to be into this juju record
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:42:32 PM
I recognize riffs fromKing Sunny Ade songs.
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:43:10 PM
Bello was in Ade's band, so not surprising
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:43:55 PM
That explains it. That’s Ade singing too.
Brian D 1:53:35 PM
Like that band name. Referencing the old Charlie Parker jazz tune Ah-Leu-Cha and making it sound like a radical movement
Brian D 2:01:39 PM
Love this fiddle piece
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:02:30 PM
Joseph is a fantastic fiddler! (And a friend, too)
Brian D 2:03:06 PM
C'mon fellas you're losing your heads.... yes yes always...
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 2:20:54 PM
I am not a number, I am a FREE MAN!!
Lee Chandler 2:28:00 PM
I love this!
OggieStirfry 2:28:47 PM
Now I really want to read 40 Watts from Nowhere... it's out of print though? Gonna have to dig.
OggieStirfry 2:34:12 PM
This track rips!
richard lyons 2:34:26 PM
the greenhouse is none more cool
richard lyons 2:35:24 PM
Thanks for the great show, Dan:)
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:35:45 PM
There really isn't a dud on this album
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:36:23 PM
A counterpoint to Jon Solomon's "human radio station," a "musical project with legs"
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:38:52 PM
And thanks, Richard!
richard lyons 2:39:23 PM
I can't seem to find anything about The Mayo Brothers?
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:40:26 PM
According to the all-knowing WPRB music director, they're a set of twins from Philly
Brian D 2:40:50 PM
Cool Greenhouse - Mayo Bros - Alien Nosejob.... nice well done
richard lyons 2:41:05 PM
Thanks! Killer set this!!
Richard from Rocky Hill 2:45:08 PM
@ Dan Ruccia (host) Another great show. And that's a killer .gif of the World Cup footballer getting so dramatic in his attempt to draw a foul that he ends up rolling down a motorway. Haha! Gonna share it with a buddy in the U.K.
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:46:16 PM
@Richard from Rocky Hill, there are a ton more if you search for "Neymar rolling meme"
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:52:46 PM
Hold on, gotta make some nicely goth drawings of sniper ravens
DSM 2:55:40 PM
Thanks Dan!
gboss 2:55:49 PM
Thanks for the tunes, Dan!
Brian D 2:57:12 PM
good one Dan!
Jon Solomon 2:57:31 PM
There's a whole similar series of .gifs to Neymar with Sheev Palpatine from the Star Wars prequels. Good stuff.
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:58:47 PM
The question is, which came first: rolling Neymar or rolling Palpatine??
Jon Solomon 2:58:55 PM
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:58:56 PM
Thanks for listening, everyone!
Jon Solomon 2:59:02 PM
An excellent question.
Jon Solomon 2:59:08 PM
I'd guess Neymar?
Dan Ruccia (host) 3:00:38 PM
Which begs the all important question: Is Neymar actually a Palpatine??
