Hello Friday folk
Lee Chandler 10:04:37 AM
Hello all!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:05:06 AM
Hello, everyone! Happy snow day!
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:05:07 AM
Also the temperatures are about to start their plunge to the west of town
Rofflestomp 10:10:26 AM
Well that beats an alarm clock. :)
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:00 AM
Ooooh I hope you’re saying this woke you up…
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:17 AM
(And not the cold)
Lee Chandler 10:11:44 AM
Sounds like the temperatures are ready to rumble.
Rofflestomp 10:12:10 AM
Your hopes would be correctly addressed.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:12:24 AM
jimboo 10:12:47 AM
Heavy jammmmmmmmmieees
Rofflestomp 10:13:27 AM
43 degrees is on the run for sure though. :)
Jen Redlights (host) 10:14:03 AM
Wear mittens!
Rofflestomp 10:14:49 AM
Looking for my fleece cape as we listen.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:15:26 AM
Please tell me you run in costume
Rofflestomp 10:16:41 AM
It does tend to warm me up oalong the way if I run, that's for sure.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:17:46 AM
Rofflestomp 10:17:58 AM
And I have diabolical mischief to get to and a costume always helps me focus.
Brian D 10:19:02 AM
Beige Banquet like like.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:19:14 AM
I’m thinking about how jogging in costume might take my mind off the idea that I’m jogging
Jen Redlights (host) 10:19:21 AM
Cool, Brian!
Rofflestomp 10:19:41 AM
Concur with Brian.
Brian D 10:19:54 AM
Whooshing rain and wind up 'gainst the windows
Jen Redlights (host) 10:21:19 AM
Rofflestomp 10:21:45 AM
If your jogging is akin to fleeing a superhero, then your mind is free to persue the runners high.
Lee Chandler 10:22:12 AM
Rockin' in the office today & losing my mind! As in the tunes are hitting my senses perfectly.
Rofflestomp 10:22:15 AM
More of a cruel drizzle here at the moment.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:22:55 AM
Outstanding, Lee! Glad to help!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:25:07 AM
Though sorry you have to work. Shouldn’t today be a day of rest? Or at least jogging in foul weather.
Rofflestomp 10:30:02 AM
Oh wow Brian, that whooshing wind and rain just became a thing. lol
Lee Chandler 10:30:36 AM
I show up, but work doesn't get my best. They only get the required flair.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:31:40 AM
Hahahaha WPRB pin of course
Rofflestomp 10:32:57 AM
And matching tie and handkerchief. :)
Brian D 10:33:47 AM
Oh Mould was from World Cafe eh... a rare cross pollinization from that other station (even though there are no other stations...)
Brian D 10:35:02 AM
Contractual Obligation Tie & Handkerchief.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:35:16 AM
We respect all those who are doing the real radio!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:35:30 AM
But of course stand alone ;)
Rofflestomp 10:35:56 AM
That other station is the ghost of a once great station. Shame, but there it is.
Brian D 10:35:57 AM
Like the cheese we stand alone
Brian D 10:36:15 AM
Quivering or melting at times
Jen Redlights (host) 10:36:35 AM
Brian D 10:37:58 AM
Ya i liked to tune in mid to late 80s even early early 90s when they had the multi format shows throughout the day and night... Joe Frank radio plays sometimes syndicated on the late nights
Lee Chandler 10:38:06 AM
Please include a western tie.
Rofflestomp 10:40:09 AM
If you gots the boots, a bolo tie is apropos.
Lee Chandler 10:43:43 AM
Not a big fan of the bolo, but love the western tie (well, to collect & put on the wall). And I got the boots. Dozens. Bit of a weakness.
Rofflestomp 10:46:57 AM
@Brian, yes indeed. I would be listening to Sleepy Hollow on a Saturday back in the day, but the station ID's and red levels for dumb promos stuff in the midst of a half dream just puts it out of my ability to even listen anymore.
Brian D 10:48:05 AM
A good wooden tie completes the ensemble
Rofflestomp 10:50:00 AM
Now that is one hellofa 'knot' to tie
Rofflestomp 10:50:45 AM
Or it come with a knot. Hmmm...
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:51:21 AM
The sun is shining as the temperature continues to drop. We had snow about an hour ago!
lawnshark025 10:52:50 AM
omg I love cole
lawnshark025 10:52:59 AM
idea of city is one of my favorite 90s records
Jen Redlights (host) 10:53:16 AM
I have never met a soul who KNOWS Cole. Wow!
lawnshark025 10:53:16 AM
never thought I’d hear them on the radio
Jen Redlights (host) 10:53:34 AM
Awesome, lawnshark!
lawnshark025 10:54:40 AM
I’m in the 90s post-hardcore / indie / math rabbit hole and I can’t escape
Brian D 10:54:54 AM
Great take on this Clean
lawnshark025 10:54:56 AM

@Lee if that is not a Rickenbacker I don't know what is.
Brian D 11:04:20 AM

Brian D 11:10:56 AM
Dry Cleaning is just one o my fave faves of past few years wprb discoveries
Brian D 11:12:32 AM
C.C. & B.O. getting their trout masks out
Jen Redlights (host) 11:14:29 AM
Rofflestomp, fleshtones will not die! Hi, gboss!
Lee Chandler 11:17:34 AM
They can't die. They were teenage zombies. Ok, maybe just sang about them.
Brian D 11:19:51 AM
This is a great ride. Heard this or another from this performance on wprb before (God is an Astronaut live)
Jen Redlights (host) 11:21:31 AM
If you ever get a chance to see them do their thing live, definitely do it! It’s mesmerizing.
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 11:24:22 AM
