When the sax is 25% louder than everyone else, must be Jan Garbarek
Wilbo (host) 12:08:48 PM
I think his mom mixed the album
Shut Up Wesley 12:09:24 PM
@Wilbo - The only time I saw Return To Forever was on their 1st tour and Bill Connors was the guitarist. At the old Main Point in Bryn Mawr.
Wilbo (host) 12:12:02 PM
I didn't see them until Mr. Mutola joined the band. Alexander Hall and Rider Gym(with it's horrendous sound) Alexander Hall was great tho'...
Shut Up Wesley 12:16:20 PM
@Wilbo I got to watch Stanley Clarke play double bass for most of the set!

Shut Up Wesley 12:18:32 PM
@Wilbo - They were promoting Light As A Feather which ironically doesn’t have any guitar on it.
Shut Up Wesley 12:19:46 PM
Thanks for mentioning the gray day. Days like this I have to work at keeping myself in a positive frame of mind.
Brian D 12:22:54 PM

Amazing to think there was a time when all-instrumental fusion jazz bands like RTF and Mahavishnu Orchestra could sell out arenas like the Spectrum.

Wilbo, last night our final shared mic break from the WPRB studios the evening of 3/11/20 came on and it made me both very happy and rather sad.
Brian D 12:46:11 PM
Three years... old playlist format still cranking out.. was down in Florida that week. Came back. Started new job on March 16 then...
Brian D 12:48:44 PM
Great memories istening to the prb stream in the backyard of our rental on the Intracoastal Waterway. Some brekkie n coffee and Will Constantine or Jerry G . Lizards walking by.. crazy. Worlds away now
Jon Solomon 12:49:07 PM
When I woke up around 3 am the show had started playing again (fell asleep with one headphone in) and I was confused where this music was coming from.
Ambrose Hughes 12:49:08 PM
Howdy Wilbo! All in the chat!
Wilbo (host) 12:54:32 PM
Jon, I can't tell my bad jokes without you're "straight man" support, and it's impossible to play "Dead or Canadian" alone. Damn

Mike Lupica 2:03:05 PM
Every Thanksgiving, Radio Survivor publishes an advanced guide to every station that makes a big enough deal about playing Alice's Restaurant to promote it beforehand. For reference, here is the 2022 guide. I don't think WPRB has ever made the list, but now I know we just need to schedule a Wilbo fill-in for TurkeyDay 2023.
Brian D 2:03:35 PM
Hello Swap Shop. My grandson has a radio for sale. What brand is it? Westinghouse

Bud Burroughs 2:46:54 PM
Speaking of Alphonso, I'm sad that I couldn't get to the current incarnation of the Jazz Is Dead tour at the Keswick last week. Folks who were there say Alphonso and the gang were tearing it up.
