HUGE shout out to Mike and Scott for their tireless efforts to get our webstreams back up and running again over the past 24ish hours!
Christine 𓅓 12:02:32 PM
Picnic at Hanging Rock..! 🐜 🐜 🐜 🇦🇺
Almos Ulmstead 12:03:05 PM
Quiet day yesterday without WPRB.
Brian D 12:03:15 PM
No Tomboy foolishness. No Tomfoolery. No Tomboyfoolery. No Tomboyfooleryishness... Just. The. Rock.
Jon Solomon 12:03:15 PM
Normalcy (well, WPRB's form of normalcy) returned!
Christine 𓅓 12:04:12 PM
Hey Dan 🦑 it's great to have the websstream back. Thanks to everyone at PRB who worked on the fix. Those of us in radio range were luckier. 📻
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:05:17 PM
I was supposed to fill in for Grady last night, which obviously didn't happen. But I did put together next week's show instead. It's gonna be a barnburner. But you'll have to wait exactly 7 days to find out about that.
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:05:26 PM
Instead you'll get this week's normal madness!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:07:55 PM
DJ DanRuccia! Greetings and Salutations! Cheers to all the WPRB Staff!
Brian D 12:08:10 PM
Got to hear the Dan Buskirk show from yesterday that I missed replayed this a.m.
Brian D 12:08:57 PM
Drive Like Jehu = great wprb memories from 20 years ago
Brian D 12:09:55 PM
Not afraid to play a lil guitar they were
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:11:18 PM
I read an interview once where John Reis (I think?) talked about how he strums his guitar like he was playing the drums. And it suddenly made the music of all his bands make so much more sense
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:11:45 PM
I also heard that John Reis put out a record last year, which I need to track down
jimboo 12:11:46 PM
Drive like a yahoo
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:12:04 PM
That would be all the drivers here in NC, jimboo
Rofflestomp 12:13:16 PM
My annunciation is really bad in chat Dan. If only...
Krista 12:15:54 PM
Love this, Dan
Rofflestomp 12:37:44 PM
Insanity in 9/4 and whatever comes to mind. lol
Brian D 12:46:47 PM
Group Doueh was the first band I heard doing that desert electric guitar African thing. About 15-20 years ago.. hooked. Great sounds. This is very different
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:47:42 PM
Yeah, those first few Doueh albums are so good. I need to spend more time with this one. This track is definitely more on the Cheveu side of things
Brian D 12:52:02 PM
First i heard them i could hear the sand ha. Real scratchy trebly like coming from an old radio.

Dang, I mistook Circle for RUINS!
jimboo 1:11:09 PM
Oh and her Eminence deejay Pethie is in the house!
Jon Solomon 1:11:36 PM
Is there a new Circle record?
Jon Solomon 1:11:39 PM
How about now?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 1:12:02 PM
Now? What?
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:12:31 PM
Most recent circle was the crazy Collab with Richard Dawson last year
Jon Solomon 1:12:57 PM
I thought perhaps Circle put out a new record between my messages, Mr.M.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 1:13:05 PM
If I’m not complaining, there’s no streaming issue 🤣😇🤬🥺😭 oh. Ha.
Christine 𓅓 1:16:22 PM
Lol, MrM 💀

Krista 2:03:25 PM
Matt "it's Dan all the way down." Me A dantle outer crust"
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 2:03:46 PM
Woooo! DJ Krista!
Krista 2:03:57 PM
We have been driving in the car today, only caught terrestrial signal and no gremlins noticed
Krista 2:04:18 PM
Matt "all the moltDAN core"
Brian D 2:04:29 PM
Ya banner day for the ol wprb team back in the streaming saddle
Rofflestomp 2:05:24 PM
Gremlins are Wings N' Things. :)
Rofflestomp 2:08:34 PM
My Luther smirks every time I call a saddle a bridge on an acoustic guitar. Sad fact of life for him.
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:24:40 PM
Update: Wax Chattels are from New Zealand
Rofflestomp 2:35:17 PM
A wonderful friend of mine went full on Margaret Mead with the New Zealand Aborigines. Brilliant adventure.
Brian D 2:43:42 PM
Brian D 2:44:13 PM
..... No point in asking..
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:45:06 PM
Maybe their most epic riff?
Rofflestomp 2:45:29 PM
Magnetic fields
Brian D 2:46:03 PM
I can picture Steve Harris singing along and posing w one leg up on the wedge monitor, scanning the crowd, laying down the bass badassness!
Brian D 2:46:36 PM
Dave Murray first lead
Brian D 2:47:40 PM
Piece of Mind was the first Maiden lp i bought (cassette)
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:48:45 PM
It's fun hearing them actually start to figure out all the level ups that Bruce Dickinson unlocked. This record feels like a huge leap over Number of the Beast
Brian D 2:50:18 PM
Ya bit o both. They (Steve Harris esp) big historical bent in the lyrics. Wars and such
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:50:26 PM
Note that the on the back of the album, that gabby fluke-mogul track is written "LOVE SONGS IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII"
Brian D 2:53:02 PM
Love this lp. RIP. Give the drummahh some
Brian D 2:53:33 PM
A bit King Kong ish on this'n

MODEST MOUSE 💔❤️‍🩹❤️♥️❤️‍🔥
Brian D 2:54:43 PM
Another great wprb classic lp. Such good memories hearing this on the only radio station i know in reach that would play it
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:54:49 PM
This is a song whose lyrics kinda stop making sense in the 00s. Ahh, the pre-GPS days
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 2:55:00 PM
Big cheers to you, DJ DanRuccia!
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:55:28 PM
