For the purposes of updating a small segment of the WPRB listenership on an important project, I will say right here that it is a BUSY DAY OF MEMBERSHIP DRIVE SWAG PACKING here at the Barge. My office presently looks like a t-shirt/sweatshirt/sticker/bottle opener bomb went off in it.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:20:07 AM
Oh wow I cannot WAIT for my swag!
Dan Ruccia 10:20:15 AM
Was just thinking this is a killer song, then popped over to the playlist and saw it was, of course, Death
jimboo 10:20:18 AM
Swag and cover!
Dan Ruccia 10:20:43 AM
A bottle opener bomb sounds painful
Jen Redlights (host) 10:21:13 AM
I am in a (winning) battle with the patrons of my nearby bar to win the sticker escalation race on our street. It’s all WPRB!
Mike Lupica 10:23:46 AM
I am apparently unfamiliar with the single version of "Smash it Up" -- this is great!
Christine 𓅓 10:26:09 AM
Yay for swag! Yay for victory in all sticker battles! 🧰
Dan Ruccia 10:26:45 AM
It sounded for a second like you said "new music from Quasi" and I was extra intrigued. This ain't a bad substitute, though!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:28:11 AM
Ahhh I can’t decide whether they are Poz-eye or Poz-ee,but I like these guys!
Li Maria 10:28:39 AM
This is fun! HBD, DJ Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:30:01 AM
That’s what I’m going for - fun! Thanks, LM!!
Mike Lupica 10:30:35 AM
Ahh, the best of all songs about crushin' on the record store clerk!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:31:22 AM
One of my all-time faves 💜💜💜
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:32:15 AM
I love this Freshies song!
Dan Ruccia 10:32:33 AM
Whoa. Apparently the version on their best of is called "I'm in Love with the girl at a certain megastore checkout desk." I wonder if they got a cease and desist from Virgin?
Jen Redlights (host) 10:33:23 AM
And this is why we can’t have nice things 👎🏻
Dan Ruccia 10:33:24 AM
Gonna listen after the show to see if they actually changed the lyrics
Christine 𓅓 10:36:10 AM
Jen, lol
Jen Redlights (host) 10:37:11 AM
Dan, now I’m not sure whether I’ve even heard that version!
Dan Ruccia 10:39:14 AM
Just checked. They absolutely rerecorded it and it's not as good
Dan Ruccia 10:39:34 AM
Guess I gotta track down that single, now...
Jen Redlights (host) 10:41:11 AM
That is good to know!
Dan Ruccia 10:57:41 AM
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:58:51 AM
@ Jen Redlights (host) Adding my Happy Birthday to Jen good wishes!
sorry it's andrew 10:59:54 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 11:00:12 AM
Thank you, friends! Glad you’re here to listen to music with me!!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:00:35 AM
Honestly my favorite pastime.

Happy Birthday from the southbound 706! Thanks for providing a badass soundtrack for my maiden voyage down the peninsula in 2023. FEELS AUSPICIOUS.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:04:24 AM
Hello, Jon! Brian, glad you liked it, I’m a fan!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:04:56 AM
Kristina, you’re the best!! Gustaf on the commute IS auspicious!!
Jon Solomon 11:05:00 AM
Greetings from The Barge, where all donor t-shirts are officially FOLDED!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:05:24 AM
You guys are master folders!
Jon Solomon 11:05:54 AM
I'm mostly on label-printing duty. Onward to package assembly!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:08:32 AM
Thank you for all the hard work!!
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:14:42 AM
@ Jen Redlights (host) & Dan Ruccia I just checked the Wiki article on The Freshies. Seems the de-Virgin-ization (sorry! LOL) versions of their hit were not because of the Virgin Records stores but BBC Radio 1, which feared the song would be considered advertising. Richard Branson of Virgin apparently loved it. In 2006 when the company opened a new megastore in Manchester Branson tried to locate the former employee who inspired the hit and have her there as a guest! Not clear if she was found.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:15:47 AM
Aha! That makes more sense!! I always thought Branson seemed oddly ok for a corporate dude. Rock on.
Ambrose Hughes 11:17:31 AM
Hi Jen Happy Birthday and Happy New Year!
Dan Ruccia 11:17:59 AM
Totally fascinating, Richard!
Dan Ruccia 11:18:23 AM
Also, I'm so psyched for this Big Brave album!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:18:37 AM
I forgot all about the new year! Happy 2023, everyone!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:18:44 AM
Dan, likewise!
Lee Chandler 11:19:13 AM
Sounds great!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:19:38 AM
Howdy, Lee!
Colin 11:29:37 AM
Something to Du?
Jen Redlights (host) 11:29:56 AM
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:30:37 AM
@ Jen Redlights (host) And here's fresh news about "Freshies"! It seems there is (or was) a women rock band from Malaysia called The Freshies, which released the album Dua in 1994. Also seems (from SmileAmazon) it was re-leased on digital just last month! K-Pop and J-Pop are well known, but Southeast Asia has given rise to some awesome pop and rock acts, too. I'll have to check it out ...
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:31:19 AM
I meant "re-released on digital" ...
Jen Redlights (host) 11:32:03 AM
Wow, right on, Richard! Time to deep dive!
unoclay 11:32:55 AM
think i just recruited a new listener to your show. give a shoutout to Heartlaub in Baltimore?
unoclay 11:33:27 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 11:36:12 AM
Heartlauab!! That’s so great, Unoclay!
unoclay 11:36:53 AM
Heartlaub the ladies' hearthrob
Jen Redlights (host) 11:38:06 AM
Outstanding! What a lucky day to join in! :)
Dan Ruccia 11:39:45 AM
Jen, you're hitting it out of the park today. I feel like I need to yell for each band you're playing
Dan Ruccia 11:39:55 AM
Which is to say that this Constantines record rules
Jen Redlights (host) 11:42:40 AM
Awww, thanks, Dan! I love this record a TON but am also pretty sure I’ve declared most of today’s show my favorite.
unoclay 11:52:50 AM
happy birthdya!
Colin 11:53:31 AM
fantastic start to the new year!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:56:19 AM
thanks to all of you for being here! You have made my day and new year already, and I am very grateful. See you next week?
Brian D 11:59:28 AM
Great show Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:59:44 AM
