Ever So Lonely?
Lizbot (host) 5:07:22 PM
Glenn Mercer is sounding a bit Lou Reed-y in his vocals on this song
Lizbot (host) 5:07:31 PM
@Andy Wing - hmmm...we shall see
Bud Burroughs 5:10:01 PM
So many Big Star tunes would work in this set
Lizbot (host) 5:11:09 PM
@Bud - True! I am tempted to play a whole lotta Big Star this show, but I'll probably limit it to 2!...we'll see!
Lizbot (host) 5:11:44 PM

George Korein 5:14:38 PM
Thanks for twirling
Lizbot (host) 5:17:37 PM
@DSM - oh wow! You're totally right. I was just thinking about Brian Jonestown Massacre earlier this week since I was revisiting some albums from that period of the same scene from late 90s/early 2000s, basically reminiscing
Number 6 5:17:51 PM
Hello everyone, thought that I would join the fray.

Hey Carlos Ramone! I saw you there, but was just going on mic so I didn't get to say hello sooner!
Lizbot (host) 5:29:33 PM
@Carlos - Nice! I haven't put mine to the test yet. It's still ensconced in plastic in my drawer, but SOON I will give it a whirl.
Lizbot (host) 5:29:56 PM
@Brian D - boids and Borbs unite!
Lizbot (host) 5:30:15 PM
@Rob from Maryland - Nice! haha, you'll find a lot of these bands on it!
Lizbot (host) 5:30:23 PM
@Rob - That's a great comp!
Lizbot (host) 5:30:50 PM
The rounds at the end of this song make me happy
Lizbot (host) 5:32:19 PM
@Rob - like THIS song, for instance1
Lee Chandler 5:33:09 PM
Ready to jangle!
Rob from Maryland 5:34:05 PM
@Lizbot, hi, and yes, it is a great comp with lots of today's bands (and even songs) on it! It lived in my car for many months a couple of years ago. You are one of the djs on WPRB that turned me on to that comp!!
Lizbot (host) 5:34:13 PM
Hey Lee Chandler! Excellent!
Brian D 5:36:21 PM
Dukes of Stratosphear Vanishing Girl came to mind. And many XTC tunes....

Rob from Maryland 5:38:31 PM
Talulah Gosh!
Lizbot (host) 5:38:37 PM
I love the video for this song - Reminds me of my studio apartment in my early-mid 20s, just records and books and bits of thrifted clothes strewn all over the floor
Lizbot (host) 5:38:48 PM
@Brian D - hmmm, yeah!
Rob from Maryland 5:39:13 PM
@Lizbot, could you play Sex Clark Five?
Lizbot (host) 5:40:15 PM
@Rob - I can make that happen
Rob from Maryland 5:41:27 PM
@Lizbot, Kristin Belz also asked for Sex Clark Five. Thanks if you do play them
Brian D 5:41:59 PM
And Robyn Hitchcock , Soft Boys of course. Jangle mania
Lizbot (host) 5:42:37 PM
@Brian D - Definitely!
Lizbot (host) 5:43:02 PM
@Brian D- I will probably be getting to at least one Soft Boys song and maybe a solo Robyn
Lizbot (host) 5:45:30 PM
@Kristin Belz - Definitely gonna play Sex Clark Five! Two requests for it!
Rob from Maryland 5:47:05 PM
Alvvays!!
Lizbot (host) 5:49:05 PM

Glad to hear some good music that I never heard before.
Lizbot (host) 5:52:12 PM
My pleasure, Kristin!
Brian D 5:52:18 PM
Exactly the song i was thinking!
Lizbot (host) 5:52:27 PM
@Number 6 - Great!
Rob from Maryland 5:55:27 PM
Thanks Lizbot! I managed to hear some of it while in the kitchen discussing how much bourbon to put in the hot cider that the three of us are heating up.
Number 6 5:56:01 PM
WPRB plays the songs that you didn't know that you liked.
Rob from Maryland 5:56:29 PM
@Number 6, heck yeah!
Lee Chandler 5:57:24 PM
Yesss!! Can’t beat this.
Lizbot (host) 5:58:44 PM
@Lee Chander - Srsly! Big Star was pure jangle perfection. I still want to get to Ardent Studios on a future road-trip!
Lee Chandler 5:59:40 PM
On my list too!
Lizbot (host) 5:59:56 PM
@Rob - Happy to provide a soundtrack for your cider-making endeavors!
Lizbot (host) 6:00:17 PM
@Number 6 - That's our aim!
Brian D 6:00:44 PM
Big Star. Love
Lizbot (host) 6:00:50 PM
@Brian D - Queen of Eyes can't be beat!
DSM 6:03:35 PM
all this Jangle got me jonesing for the spring
DSM 6:04:50 PM
That early Grateful Dead version of Early Morning Rain has a nice jangle to it
Lizbot (host) 6:04:56 PM
@DSM - Yeah, it's reminding me of a particularly freeing drive up to Princeton from Philly in very early spring - on one of the first nice weekend days of the year - a couple years ago and I played a LOT of Go-Betweens the whole drive
DSM 6:06:12 PM
That sounds like a lovey day indeed!
Lizbot (host) 6:06:53 PM
Twee-ing it up now
Lizbot (host) 6:07:26 PM
@DSM - It was the year that magicicadas took over Princeton...was that 2021? It's all a blur!
Rob from Maryland 6:08:36 PM
The first time I heard "Queen Of Eyes" was on a Fastbacks album. I still like their version better than the original.
Rob from Maryland 6:09:07 PM
@Lizbot, yes, 2021 was the big (magi)cicada emergence in Maryland and central Jersey
DSM 6:09:43 PM
Dwight Twilley "I Found The Magic" (not to be confused with Looking for the Magic) also has great Jangle
Casey Leigh 6:11:11 PM
Howdy y'all! So glad I could catch the show today. def gonna help me get thru the last bit of work I've got left
DSM 6:12:04 PM
Ah yes, I was in Princeton for the magicadas that year too on a beautiful spring day. I miss those doods.
Lizbot (host) 6:12:38 PM
Hi Casey! Happy you could tune in!
Lizbot (host) 6:14:33 PM
@ROb - There are some great covers of Queen of Eyes, but I'm loyal to Robyn!
Brian D 6:14:52 PM
Beee yootiful here
Lizbot (host) 6:15:02 PM
@Rob - I THOUGHT so, but sometimes time moved strangely that year! I blame the cicadas
Lizbot (host) 6:15:27 PM
@Brian D - A. Partridge in a W P R B
George Korein 6:15:44 PM
This episode brought to you by Rickenbacker
Rob from Maryland 6:15:56 PM
@Lizbot, Robyn's is good! For me, the first version I hear of a song is quite often the one I always like the most.
Ossy Hyouka 6:16:00 PM
Evening Alice Wonderland Bot
Rob from Maryland 6:16:18 PM
@Lizbot, those cicadas were so sneaky, moving time and all that
Lizbot (host) 6:17:35 PM

@George - Ha. True.
Brian D 6:17:58 PM

Brian D 6:18:37 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:18:49 PM
@Brian D - Ha! or, for roadies: Takes a Lickin and keeps on Ricken
Lizbot (host) 6:18:57 PM
@Brian D - GOD, TRUE
Lizbot (host) 6:20:14 PM
@Rob from Maryland - Those majestic magicadas had NO SHAME and landed on all bright fabric on our bodies while we watched a free outdoor show in Princeton!
Lizbot (host) 6:20:46 PM
@Brian D - A. Partridge in a PRB works better syllabically, so I'm changing it
Number 6 6:21:25 PM
Got 'PRB?
Lizbot (host) 6:21:34 PM
Oops, I messed up the tron that Spini
Brian D 6:21:51 PM
I'm making a pizza & put the dough in for a pre bake b4 sauce n cheese. And... it bubbled up in the center it now looks like a chicken
Lizbot (host) 6:22:12 PM
This song is PURE SPRINGTIME
Brian D 6:22:37 PM
Ya. Sunny vibe totally
Lizbot (host) 6:23:25 PM
@Brian D - DESTROY that false chicken! Poultry demon!
Lizbot (host) 6:23:35 PM
Yeasty Wizard
Dennisons 6:23:42 PM
Yay! go-betweens!
Brian D 6:24:12 PM
I love a big ol dough bubble
CARLOS RAMONE. 6:28:42 PM
I always wanted to own a pizzeria but I couldn’t raise the dough
Brian D 6:29:24 PM
Drove up to Lake Nockamixon in Bucks Co around that time. Listening to DJ Dylan Weird Old America. As soon as we got a mile or 2 away the cicadas were audible
Rob from Maryland 6:30:08 PM
Carlos
Ossy Hyouka 6:30:41 PM
Yummy, lovely smells from cuisines of the African motherland!
Lizbot (host) 6:32:05 PM
@Ossy - I ate this dish called "A swallow in the nest" or something like that, and it was one big dumpling in a spicy delicious sauce! So good!
Lizbot (host) 6:32:21 PM
@Carlos - oooof!
Dennisons 6:32:28 PM
Just finished work, didn’t hear earlier Go-betweens. Spellcheck is very insistent that there’s only one go-between.
Lizbot (host) 6:33:05 PM
Hi Dennisons! No we require multiple go-betweens here!
Lizbot (host) 6:34:06 PM
@Dennisons - This isn't the 1971 Julie Christie movie The Go-Between!
Dennisons 6:35:13 PM
I only have tapes of theirs. I’m always looking for CDs at PREX but they never have them. I haven’t seen that! Always up for a Julie Christie movie.
Brian D 6:37:46 PM
Chicken Little wrote this one
Lizbot (host) 6:37:56 PM
@Dennisons - I had a phase in high school of watching every movie I could get my hands on by certain actors/actresses I got really into, and Julie Christie was one of them. Another was Tom Courtenay, so you can imagine I watched "Billy Liar" a bunch of times! And I lost it when Yo La Tengo made the song "Tom Courtenay" and immediately mentioned Julie in the first line!
Lizbot (host) 6:38:46 PM
@Brian D - Ha, yeah! Chicken Little's "sky" was actually your pizza dough, and it very much fell on her
Brian D 6:39:24 PM
Julie Christie... the rumours are true....
Brian D 6:40:46 PM
Yep! I was thinking of the pizza dough chicken while i was "typing" that. Ooooo this one! Yeah!
Lee Chandler 6:41:23 PM
Yay! Missed your 1st set w/the Feelies. Love them so.
Kristin Belz 6:41:34 PM
glad you're giving us our fill of the Feelies too...NJ jangle (of a sort) at its best.
Lizbot (host) 6:41:56 PM
My Julie Christie obsession started with Billy Liar, then progressed to McCabe & Mrs. Miller, and because I loved mopey Thomas Hardy books as a teen, Far from the Madding Crowd was another favorite, but McCabe remains one of my all-time favorite movies
Brian D 6:43:14 PM
I feel like a Million Mercers when I hear this
Lizbot (host) 6:43:17 PM
@Lee Chandler - Always happy to play The Feelies! When I used to live block from the North Star Bar 12-15 years ago, they toured and played there and I had a great chat with Glen!
Lizbot (host) 6:43:35 PM
@Brian D - A Glen of Mercers: The Glen Mercer Story
Lizbot (host) 6:44:28 PM
@Kristin Belz - Yes! I Love them so much! Revisited the movie Something Wild not long ago and there's so much Feelies in it!
Lee Chandler 6:44:37 PM
A million Mercers should be his next foray.

Lizbot (host) 6:45:36 PM
This song is so fun and silly
Lizbot (host) 6:45:47 PM
Hi Rofflestomp! thanks!
Rob from Maryland 6:46:23 PM
My wife said that one part of that Feelies song sounded like the Grateful Dead
Brian D 6:46:41 PM
CALVIN! This is lovely fun ya
Lizbot (host) 6:46:48 PM
I love the combo of Amelia Fletcher's twee vocals with the deeeeeep voice of Calvin!
Lizbot (host) 6:47:06 PM
@Rob from Maryland - Oh yeah. I could see that
Brian D 6:48:00 PM
Feelies are def 1 of the ECoast Grateful Deads of indie/college rock
richard lyons 6:48:19 PM
Hi Lizbot! Just joining and what a set!!! Sooo goood!
Ossy Hyouka 6:48:36 PM
A classy hip retor vibe and never had swallow in the nest, but sure it sounds great, like you had before, Liz! There's this food vlogger on youtube named Mark Wiens, who goes all around the world trying various cuisines and some countries in Africa were one of his stops, as well Jamaica
Lizbot (host) 6:49:29 PM
Hi Richard Lyons! Thanks! Glad you could tune in!
Lizbot (host) 6:49:39 PM
@Brian D - Yeah, I think that's fair
Brian D 6:49:48 PM
I remember when they called this here stuff on wprb "college rock"
Lizbot (host) 6:50:19 PM
@Ossy - I gotta find the name of that restaurant. It wasn't far from motown studios-hitsville USA!
Brian D 6:50:27 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:55:43 PM

Lizbot (host) 7:01:51 PM
@Alan - Homemade vs. Frozen: THROWDOWN! Brian D's homemade pizza is possessed by an evil dough chicken, so that's a point for frozen...unless he can get that chicken to do his bidding...

Lee Chandler 7:04:47 PM
Pretty sure Vehicle was the album I realized when I want to dance & bop around, a CD format is preferable.
Rob from Maryland 7:05:04 PM
Mmm, The Bats and The Clean!

George Korein 7:07:04 PM
What breed is Nuggette? I must ask Hattie
George Korein 7:07:21 PM
I think she said she was a corgi
Lizbot (host) 7:10:32 PM
@George - This is breaking and important news! Corgis are already breaded nuggets!
Lizbot (host) 7:11:32 PM
@Richard Lyons - Gotta use the Big Cat to combat the rats and bats that populated that last set of songs!
richard lyons 7:12:09 PM
HA! YES!
Lizbot (host) 7:12:18 PM
@Lee Chandler - Vehicle is so good! Yeah, my tone arm would hop and skip if I dance too hard!
richard lyons 7:13:07 PM
Yes! Lee!
Lee Chandler 7:13:46 PM
Felt!
Lizbot (host) 7:14:15 PM
"Lemonheads on the TV set"...I contemplated playing It's a Shame about Ray but decided against it.
Lee Chandler 7:17:17 PM
Hi Richard!
Rob from Maryland 7:19:00 PM
This is my favorite version of "Black and White", and the first version released. Thanks, Lizbot!
richard lyons 7:20:51 PM
Hi Lee! I concure, Rob!
Lizbot (host) 7:21:04 PM
@Rob from Maryland - So glad you enjoyed it!
Lizbot (host) 7:22:07 PM
I adore Felt, which is one of the first bands I had to collect every album and single I could find, but I am discouraged from playing it at home because a certain family member dislikes Lawrence's voice!
Lee Chandler 7:22:53 PM
Heck yeah. What?! They can put on noise cancelling headphones.
Lizbot (host) 7:22:53 PM
STILL haven't found my own copy of the Felt documentary
Lizbot (host) 7:23:14 PM
@Lee - Tell him! He was in the chat earlier! he can stick felt in his ears!
Lee Chandler 7:23:30 PM
Respectfully
Lizbot (host) 7:24:16 PM
@Lee - Or if he prefers the later Lawrence music, denim. or he can drive away in a go-kart with some Mozart on
Lee Chandler 7:24:32 PM
Hahaha.
Lizbot (host) 7:25:59 PM
My friend Herbie, a former Philly resident who now lives in London, actually spotted Lawrence on the street in Islington and hesitated but did end up going up to him and thanking him for his music, and despite his prickly reputation, Lawrence seemed genuinely pleased
Rofflestomp 7:26:12 PM
In regards to cheese, I saw my girlfriend for a few minutes in her building on campus, and she gave me 30lbs of cheese blocks with no explanation. She just waved and went back to her lab. Fucking Chinese New Year is way over my head.
Lee Chandler 7:27:21 PM
That’s very cool. Both non-prickly Lawrence & all the New Years cheese.
Rofflestomp 7:27:53 PM
I'm still confused Lee. lol
Adam Elk 7:28:40 PM
XTC , AZTEC , Big Star ... I'm Home !
Lizbot (host) 7:28:42 PM
@Rofflestomp - Chinese New Year parties don't stop! I attempted to make mooncakes one year when my kid's class was studying China and it was a disaster!
richard lyons 7:29:24 PM
Dang, Rofflestomp! 30 lbs! Mmmmmm!
Lizbot (host) 7:29:27 PM
@Lee - Non-Prickly Lawrence & All the New Years Cheese - great album.
Lizbot (host) 7:29:38 PM
Hello Adam Elk- Happy to hear it!
richard lyons 7:29:45 PM
I agree, Adam
Lizbot (host) 7:29:57 PM
Lilys are playing a show in Feb at Latvian Society in Philly!
Rofflestomp 7:30:11 PM
I hear mooncakes are good, but never had one yet.

@Rofflestomp - I bought a mould with a pattern, but the dough just crumbled apart!
Adam Elk 7:30:41 PM
Mommyheads and Cliff Hillis Feb 16th
Adam Elk 7:30:51 PM
PHILY BABY
Lee Chandler 7:31:37 PM
Yup. Plan on going.
Rofflestomp 7:31:49 PM
@richard lyons, It was like a heist of gold bricks. Just weird.
Rofflestomp 7:32:34 PM
@Lizbot, I simply cannot get dough right.
Lee Chandler 7:32:39 PM
Golden yellow brick cheese?
Adam Elk 7:34:25 PM
Colin Blunstone illuminates our dreams
Rofflestomp 7:34:29 PM
@Lee, Yea, I have many questions for her I am still waiting for an answer to.
Lee Chandler 7:34:38 PM
@Lizbot, that would also be a great title for a kids book.
Adam Elk 7:36:07 PM
I'd read that to my kids :)
Lizbot (host) 7:37:00 PM
@Adam Elk - Show noted! I'm in Glenside often.
Lizbot (host) 7:37:19 PM
@Adam Elk - Might hear from Colin himself soon on the program.
Lizbot (host) 7:38:59 PM
@Lee Chandler - Oh, you're making me think the WPRB Chat should collaboratively write children's books! Think of the possibilities! Definitely one must be written from the point of view of a cicada who got trapped in the studio
Adam Elk 7:39:06 PM
Show noted! I'm in Glenside often ❤️❤️❤️
Lizbot (host) 7:41:00 PM
@Lee Chandler - One book must be about the cheese, repeatedly attacked by rats, mice and a big cat, but the cheese stands alone
Lee Chandler 7:42:12 PM
@Lizbot - Was already wrapped around myself thinking the same! So many possibilities.
Mary Jones 7:42:32 PM
Hello Lizbot and all! Been listening since 5:30, but been running around getting stuff done around the house and couldn't say before now how much I'm loving all the jangle pop tonight.
Adam Elk 7:43:11 PM
We describe each song thru the voice of our inner child and print with amazing art work. I'm thinking times best seller list in the fall of 2023
Rofflestomp 7:43:21 PM
@Lizbot, and wound up on air, just like every 13 and 17 years ago. lol
Number 6 7:43:48 PM
Fleas the size of rats suck on rats the size of cats.
Alan Pasnyk 7:44:08 PM
....But the cheese is being protected by a 30 Foot Huge Genetically Altered...Cicada!!!
Lee Chandler 7:45:13 PM
I’m thinking a music component. Like a 7” to prompt when to turn the page.
Rofflestomp 7:45:22 PM
Making me worry about that cheese Alan. It has crossed my mind. :)
Lee Chandler 7:46:05 PM
Our demographic just tripled!
Adam Elk 7:48:47 PM
ooooh Love Archer. We used play with the "Sea and Cake" all the time
Lizbot (host) 7:49:22 PM
@Alan - YIKES! I like the image...feels very Tarkus. Whoever illustrated that trippy ELP album cover with the armadillo tank needs to bring the 30-foot tall cicada to life!
Lizbot (host) 7:49:44 PM
@Lee Chandler - Oh hell yeah, very 70s children's library
Lizbot (host) 7:50:25 PM
@Lee Chandler - backing music can be provided by all-prb-chat musicians band, Magicicada & The Mooncakes
Lizbot (host) 7:51:11 PM
@Adam Elk - Nice! I love his White Sky album so much. Have you ever seen his cartoons?
Alan Pasnyk 7:53:03 PM
@ Lizbot: Magicicada or Magi Cicada?
Lizbot (host) 7:53:11 PM
@Number 6 - Ha! Ripping and rewrapping blocks of yellow cheese to feed Hunger City
Lizbot (host) 7:53:29 PM
Hi Mary Jones! I didn't see you there!
Lizbot (host) 7:53:46 PM
@Mary - I'm glad you got to tune ni and are digging it!
Mary Jones 7:55:22 PM
@Lizbot yeah, it's been a great company while I get the podcast/newsletter ready and make dinner!
Rofflestomp 7:55:24 PM
I can see a donation to the food bank in my immediate future for sure Lizbot. Thanks much for the return sanity tunes tonight.
Mary Jones 7:56:44 PM
Also, I loved hearing R.E.M. put in context of other artists like the Smiths and the Feelies--when I first got into them in the 90s, the IRS years felt sort of out-of-place from what was going on in music, but I loved it so much. It took a little while to find their contemporaries.
Ossy Hyouka 7:58:06 PM
Awesome cheesy show Liz, have a nice weekend!
Number 6 7:58:09 PM
Looks like that's a cheese wrap, BCNU!
Lizbot (host) 7:58:37 PM
@Mary Jones - Nice! I caught up on Cobra, which I hadn't gotten to yet. When you were talking about the yacht used in Never Say Never Again, it reminded me - that Mohamed Al Fayed and Dodi also funded Chariots of Fire - Are you gonna cover that movie?
richard lyons 7:58:44 PM
Thanks for the show !! 🧼🦇🐱
Alan Pasnyk 7:59:18 PM
Lizbot:Thank You!!!
Mary Jones 7:59:23 PM
@Lizbot we are! Wow, I had no idea they funded that. I rag a little on Chariots in the next episode, because REDS lost Best Picture to it.
Rob from Maryland 7:59:53 PM
Loved the show, Lizbot,thanks!!
Lizbot (host) 8:00:14 PM
@MAry Jones - Yeah, I kinda divide R.E.M. into two different eras in my mind
Lizbot (host) 8:00:56 PM
@Mary Jones - oh crazy! Did you release the episode yet today? weird coincidence! I
Lizbot (host) 8:01:05 PM
Thanks everyone for listening!!
Lee Chandler 8:01:23 PM
So many possibilities for WPRB fundraising swag. Magicicada & the Mooncakes tshirts for all!
Mary Jones 8:02:11 PM
@Lizbot It should be releasing around now, depending on Libsyn.
Lizbot (host) 8:02:26 PM
@Lee Chandler - Damn, it's true! SO many possibilities in the context of swag! We better all get drawing!
Lizbot (host) 8:02:40 PM
@Lee Chandler - also, potential station IDs...
Lizbot (host) 8:03:23 PM
@Mary Jones - Ah! Looking forward to it! I am behind on all my pods this week because of Sundance Film Fest online streaming since Tuesday until this Sunday!
