I'm one more Xmas preview away from rewarding myself with some Desert Crusing!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:04:16 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 3:04:51 PM
oh wait this is the FOURTH TO LAST
Brian D 3:05:14 PM
Vegeta lives. Dj Pup subbed the other day & we heard that station ID in the middle of the show... like time travel
DSM 3:06:13 PM
This is a nice smooth cruise
Brian D 3:06:41 PM
Ooh yeah Kanaan! Heard them on your show few weeks back. Really like
Captain Ahab (host) 3:06:50 PM
Hey Brian, DSM
DSM 3:08:35 PM
Hello Captain and good afternoon
Dan Ruccia 3:10:30 PM
I definitely know people who have done papers like that
DSM 3:10:46 PM
I don't have many feelings about the year change this year which is kinda nice. I usually feel something, maybe I'm finally dead inside? LOL
DSM 3:13:31 PM
could go for some maggot brain tbh
Scurrow Squirrel 3:14:21 PM
That last song was good
Brian D 3:19:23 PM
This is mighty good
Brian D 3:20:13 PM
Great lp title ha
Brian D 3:20:43 PM
Sustain and that amp distortion ya
Brian D 3:22:22 PM
This gtr tone too yeah yeah yeah! Neck harming riffs
Brian D 3:29:10 PM
The show of mighty riffs today!
DSM 3:30:13 PM
Yeah great selections so far, and all "N" too!
Jon Solomon 3:30:44 PM
Pat / Clamour Club fills in for me at 5, and while I'm sad I'm not on the radio tonight it does mean I can go running with DC as the soundtrack in a few....
Captain Ahab (host) 3:31:30 PM
nice, enjoy your run!
Brian D 3:34:37 PM
And it just keeps rocking....
Colin 3:40:07 PM
this first hour sure has me doing stank riff face a lot.
DSM 3:42:17 PM
bang that home run bell!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:42:19 PM
Ambrose Hughes 3:55:22 PM
Ola Captain Ahab! Sounding real good.
Brian D 3:58:01 PM
Wave ? Look out!
Rofflestomp 3:58:29 PM
Heya Capt'n and et al. Making the lower numbers on the volume dial irrelevant on Wednesdays. Thanks for that.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:04:44 PM
hey Ambrose, Roffle!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:04:58 PM
low volume??
Captain Ahab (host) 4:05:04 PM
Rofflestomp 4:05:09 PM
Rofflestomp 4:06:11 PM
Some guy in a factory put numbers on the darn thing. Whatever, good for him.
J 4:13:27 PM
i keep missing the action due to meetings - can we petition WPRB to move Desert Cruising to after 5pm Eastern? Captain will hate me though...
Rofflestomp 4:15:59 PM
Where she haunts it is well beyond 5pm and well beyond eastern too. :)
Francis 4:17:17 PM
Must be fun to come up w/ stoner/doom/sludge band names. Favorite so far is Bongzilla. I'm guessing they might smoke some pot
Captain Ahab (host) 4:17:44 PM
lol just to the end of Jan! We'll see about the spring schedule J, I like being in the evenings so when I'm back in Boston in Jan I may well be on after 5, up to the scheduling gods though
Captain Ahab (host) 4:18:13 PM
haha yeah I think so Francis
Captain Ahab (host) 4:18:23 PM
just a guess
J 4:18:28 PM
Yeah @Rofflestomp...i know, i'm just being selfish.
Rofflestomp 4:18:44 PM
Ambrose Hughes 4:19:31 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:20:33 PM
Rofflestomp 4:21:47 PM
Ambrose Hughes 4:22:36 PM
Jon Solomon 4:24:20 PM
That wasn't my best run ever but certainly among the heaviest.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:24:23 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:25:22 PM
haha Jon I imagine the BPM of these tunes are not the best suited
Rofflestomp 4:26:38 PM
Ankle weights made out of heavy metal, no doubt.
Jon Solomon 4:26:51 PM
No, it was perfect.
Francis 4:30:53 PM
Oh - this is the perfect work out music - especially when lifting weights.. gives you +3 to strength
Ossy Hyouka 4:30:54 PM
Great sludge sounds
Rofflestomp 4:32:11 PM
Francis, dissing gravity requires some mods for sure.
Brian D 4:33:50 PM
Which occult witches? Which witch cult?
Francis 4:34:43 PM
The ones from Temple Fang
Captain Ahab (host) 4:35:37 PM
which witch cult would a witch cult cult if a witch cult could cult witches
Rofflestomp 4:36:50 PM
Witches playing with fire are the usual suspects, and they would if they cult.
Brian D 4:42:31 PM
Aww ja!
Brian D 4:43:29 PM
Cult witch club sandwich
Ambrose Hughes 4:43:54 PM
Rofflestomp 4:44:45 PM
Witch is it.
Rofflestomp 4:45:29 PM
It is only that witch it is.
DSM 4:45:47 PM
nice sax and electric piano mellow out here
DSM 4:46:13 PM
and back to the rock!
Brian D 4:46:28 PM
Ooh that was fun!
Ambrose Hughes 4:46:46 PM
More of that please!
Brian D 4:47:09 PM
It lives!
Ambrose Hughes 4:48:00 PM
Gonna get me some Getsemene
Brian D 4:48:13 PM
That amp is just about to melt
Ambrose Hughes 4:48:29 PM
Smelt it!
richard lyons 4:48:34 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 4:51:28 PM
Thanks for tuning in friends, enjoy the rest of your wednesdays
Brian D 4:53:47 PM
Take the bass string down past A ha ha.... just flapping loose string on pickups/ frets
Brian D 4:54:46 PM
But they do have those 7,8,9 10 etc string guitars with low A etc
Rofflestomp 4:54:59 PM
Gonna need bigger pickups to catch the full wave of them there strings for sure!
Brian D 4:55:40 PM
Funny looking those... looks like photo shop comically wide necks
Rofflestomp 4:55:51 PM
Occult? I can't see that.
Brian D 4:56:27 PM
Rick Nielsen and his 5 neck gtr scraping the floor ha
Mike Tropiano 4:56:47 PM
Enjoyed the great show, too busy to interact, Thanks so much! (even for the dad-like which witch whichtes.
Bud Burroughs 4:57:12 PM
I've always heard the "t" pronounced in Deseret, but I guess I've only heard it in the context of the city in Utah!
Rofflestomp 4:57:25 PM
Brian D, lol I gotta go check that out!
Ambrose Hughes 4:59:28 PM
Thanks Captain for a superb show, I salute you!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:59:52 PM
