Hey hey hey
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:01:42 AM
Good morning! I'm cleaning the house. This show will make it go faster
Brian D 10:02:48 AM
Hello hello
Jen Redlights (host) 10:03:09 AM
Hurrah! I listen to fast music to clean too. Hi, friends!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:05:39 AM
Feeling punchy today…maybe we should all clean.
ѕтєνιє ρ 10:05:41 AM
Hey Bri (may I call you Bri?)... hehe... speaking of amps from the chat during DTO's show, my friend who is a bassist gave me one of his LARGE bass amps. It can literally shake the house!
Brian D 10:07:31 AM
Bri yes Bri welcome. Large bass amp comes with chiropractor referral?
Jen Redlights (host) 10:08:43 AM
I have a subwoofer that does that, feels like an earthquake tremor.
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:08:58 AM
Jen, way back I used to listen to the Clash while cleaning. After a few years and in a different abode, I put on my ABBA records to clean up to. A sing-along clean-up for each group.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:01 AM
Hahah! Question is what do you use to clean the stove? I am thinking an err to stoner rock depending on filthiness.
David Shortell 10:11:09 AM
I remember seeing the documentary “Half Japanese: The Band That Would Be King” at the Film Forum one night in 1993, then running a mile east on Houston Street to catch them live at the original Knitting Factory.
Brian D 10:11:56 AM
Need acid rock to clean the stove. Or Caustic Resin . bit of bofe
Newtown Bike Works 10:12:42 AM
Jen...killin' it again, right from the jump!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:13:43 AM
Wooo, awesome, NBT! Thanks for jumping right in!
ѕтєνιє ρ 10:13:44 AM
Bri, the amp is about 4 feet tall with preamp on top and yes, it requires reviewing smart lifting procedures before moving it.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:14:14 AM
@Dave wow! I didn’t know about the documentary !
ѕтєνιє ρ 10:15:35 AM
@Bri Funny thing, I asked my buddy when he wants it back. He said: It's yours now. This is just one he had in his basement, which his wife was tired of dodging when she was doing laundry.
David Shortell 10:17:10 AM
@Rob: Was it the “The Cost of Living” EP? Its jacket resembles the package of a cleanser.
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:17:51 AM
Jen, "clean the stove" ... can you translate that into English? ;-)
Jen Redlights (host) 10:18:19 AM
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:19:19 AM
Jen, jk, we don't actually use the stove because the temperature fluctuates a lot (like the 300 degree setting can go from ~250 to ~325 and back). We use our toaster ovens and eat simply anyway
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:20:18 AM
@David, hee hee. It was actually all the Clash records I own
David Shortell 10:20:47 AM
Rachel Nagy died a year ago last Saturday.
ѕтєνιє ρ 10:22:43 AM
@Rob My son got me a laser thermometer for xmas. I'm a fan of temping stuff. Since xmas, I temp anything and everything. I'm funny like that.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:22:56 AM
Oh, man. It didn’t even feel that long. :( @Rob your thermostat is busted! Oof.
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:24:47 AM
@Stevie, we'll look into that. @Jen, that never occurred to me. I just assumed that was its personality
Jen Redlights (host) 10:25:15 AM
Well, that could also be :)
Jen Redlights (host) 10:31:52 AM
Also, THIS is the sound of cleaning the oven.
sorry it's andrew 10:34:41 AM
good morning jen!
sorry it's andrew 10:35:04 AM
and brunch crew
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:36:30 AM
Oh wow, I just uncovered a Christmas gift from my son-in-law and his husband from a couple of years ago. It's a glass case with a bunch of buttons/badges: Dead Boys, DKs, The Clash, Richard Hell & the Voidoids, Ramones, Bad Religioin, Patti Smith, Siouxsie & the Banshees. They know I used to be into punk back in the day. Son-in-law is visiting for a few days next week, so I will make sure it's dust-free and visible.
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 10:42:42 AM
@Jen, yes, Bullet in the Head is the sound of cleaning the oven.
Newtown Bike Works 10:44:15 AM
Jen, you inspired us to do a deep dive into Detroit Cobras at our event tonight. It'll be perfect. We're doing a fundraiser for our fallen friend of the shop, Jun King of Trenton. We're having a big old party in celebration of Jun and auctioning off a bunch of his bicycles and bicycling gear. The event is from 6:30-8:30 at our Newtown, Bucks County shop. There'll be good socializing, food and drinks, and awesome music starting with Detroit Cobras!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:45:41 AM
NBT, that is wonderful and amazing!! I’m so glad I was able to help, and I. So sorry for
Jen Redlights (host) 10:45:52 AM
Your loss. :(
Jen Redlights (host) 10:46:34 AM
@Rob you also have an amazing family!
Lee Chandler 10:51:19 AM
@Rob - that is such an cool & thoughtful gift to receive!
Newtown Bike Works 10:52:21 AM
Thanks, Jen. Forgot to mention that all proceeds will benefit Jun's family in their recovery from the loss of Jun. He was an amazing man.

David Shortell 10:57:40 AM
I get the Makers mixed up with the Make-Up. Was it the Makers I saw open for Thee Headcoats’ NYC debut years ago at Tramps? I know April March made a record with them.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:57:55 AM
Guys, Newtown Bike Works tonight in Newtown to celebrate Jun! Get in there!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:58:59 AM
@david great question! They were both very glamorous and ridiculous and great. Trying to think of good tipoffs…. Makers included no ladies, if that helps.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:59:26 AM
Me mimicking the sultry “ayyys”;in text will not translate
Christine 𓅓 10:59:37 AM
Thanks for the info, Jen & Newtown Bike Works.

(I'm in a corner now where I have to vacuum the dust before I move/remove anything) (ahCHOO) (this show really is helping, thanks Jen!)
Jen Redlights (host) 11:06:50 AM
Glad to help!
Colin 11:07:58 AM
that first hour ripped and now I smell a fresh pot of coffee being brewed, perfect time for the second hour!
Dan Ruccia 11:09:39 AM
Hey Jen! I'm wondering if anyone here went to that first Hated reunion show last (?) week?
Jen Redlights (host) 11:14:23 AM
Oh whoa, Dan, I missed that news! Anyone ? Anyone?
sorry it's andrew 11:14:34 AM
hated reunion? whoa
Dan Ruccia 11:18:06 AM

I swear, the next time I see Darryl McDaniels (DMC) at one of the comic conventions..I'll actually say hi. Now that I'm a quinquagenarian, I swear I'm over geeking out.
David Shortell 11:28:15 AM
I read that the trial of Jam Master Jay’s murderers begins next month.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:30:13 AM
@lee totally not geeky to jump into a chat and talk about all the music things! ;) Say hi there too!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:30:28 AM
@David oooooh :(
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 11:31:09 AM
Wow, an Ida/Hated connection. I need to dig out my Ida stuff and listen to them again. It's been a while.
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 11:32:33 AM
And Jen/Lee @1046 & 1051, that side of my family is wonderful. I was floored by that box of badges and will keep it visible and dust-free
Lee Chandler 11:33:51 AM
Yeah! In a related note, Jon Spencer is playing in Atlantic City at Anchor Rock Club Feb 3.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:34:27 AM
he lives! where has that guy been?
Lee Chandler 11:35:09 AM
I said the same thing.
Jon Solomon 11:38:31 AM
Hello, radio friends.
Jon Solomon 11:38:34 AM
Two things!
Jon Solomon 11:38:49 AM
1. I believe former WPRB DJ Maria T. went to see The Hated's show.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:38:59 AM
lucky Maria!! hi, jon
Jon Solomon 11:39:06 AM
2. What is the deal with The Mayo Brothers?! I Had no idea what was happening and I loved it.
Jon Solomon 11:39:33 AM
@Lee, please invite my kid and I to any and all comic conventions you attend!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:41:46 AM
Jon, ditto on Mayo Bros. The other song isn't as great on that single, but we can't get enough of Girlfriend in my house!
David Shortell 11:43:57 AM
21 years ago next Thursday, I saw the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion open for Ike Turner at B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill.
Jon Solomon 11:44:16 AM
Jen, send me a link to hear it when you can please!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:46:14 AM
@David I wish I kept that kind of records! Jon, on it.
Jon Solomon 11:46:54 AM
This Sprints EP + their early singles are now on a single LP (that I suspect I'll be buying soon).
sorry it's andrew 11:47:02 AM
@dan...found this article on the hated reunion with a couple of video snippets: https://www.stereogum.com/2210566/the-hated-reunion-performance-video/news/
Lee Chandler 11:47:47 AM
@Jon, that would be so much fun! While husband & I aren't really the costume/dress as character types, we've entertained the idea if we had a 'crew'.
Mike Lupica 11:48:11 AM
Sorry, been on a call at the Barge for the last hour, but catch-up comment for David: Was the Headcoats / Makers show you saw at Tramps the one where Billy Childish couldn't sing during because he had a cold?
sorry it's andrew 11:48:35 AM
i hope sprints tour the states this year
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 11:48:49 AM
I'm done cleaning for the day. I've got an hour or so left. Which I will do tomorrow. Thanks, Jen, for help!!
Rob from Maryland 🦀 🇺🇦 🌻 🇮🇷 11:49:09 AM
*the help!!
Jon Solomon 11:49:19 AM
@Lee, I'm not a dress in character type either but would love to join a crew. Going to Celebration in 2019 was a remarkably great time.
David Shortell 11:49:43 AM
I know little about that band CIVIC, but Civic Mimic (featuring members of Casual, Glazer and Holden Wrecks) play tonight at Pino's Gift Basket Shoppe and Wine Cellar (13 North 4th Avenue, Highland Park, NJ).
Jen Redlights (host) 11:50:17 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 11:50:25 AM
@David NICE!
Christine 𓅓 11:53:39 AM
Dynamic show...thanks, Jen! Take care, all
David Shortell 11:54:21 AM
@Mike: I think Billy only played at Tramps once. I didn’t notice a problem with his voice. The Insomniacs and the Scots group Lung Leg were on the bill too.
Lee Chandler 11:54:38 AM
Thanks Jen!
Mike Lupica 11:57:53 AM
Yep, that's show I'm talking about. Upon further reflection, I think he did sing a bit towards the end. Funnier: I was at that show, as were you (Jen), as were a bunch of other PRB DJs!
sorry it's andrew 11:58:50 AM
Thanks for the awesome tunes today, Jen
Jen Redlights (host) 11:58:52 AM
@mike, someday can we sit down and write down all the shows I was at and forgot about? I do remember seeing the Makers a bunch, though.
Mike Lupica 11:58:55 AM
60 seconds of YouTubeage from that show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r5-QXqcNHI
