Destroyer! Love Dan Bejar
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:20:54 AM
It was so hard picking just one Dan Bejar song. Almost went with one of his New Pornos tunes
Gautham Kalva 10:25:01 AM
@Dan Ruccia - while we’re on the Dan’s set- was wondering if you know Dan Bern? You might like his sing Jerusalem.
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:26:31 AM
Hey Gautham! I don't know Dan Bern. Will have to check it out
Brian D 10:30:15 AM
ABBA reunion album from 2021 has a song titled Keep an Eye on Dan. Just remembered... heard it on Dan Buskirk's show that year.
Brian D 10:35:17 AM
Dan Bern doing Jerusalem at the Philly Folk Fest in late 1990s was a big EYE OPENING highlight. Wow. Funny guy. Laughed like crazy during his set. Did not hear about him for a while then noticed he wrote or co wrote some songs from the Dewey Cox Walk Hard movie
Brian D 10:37:07 AM
Another great Daniel Lanois project i loved was Black Dub. Trixie Whitley on vocals. Really liked the sound they got on that one time only lp.
Brian D 10:38:33 AM
I believe AC Newman said it "BAY-har" when he mentioned Dan Bejar on stage. Seems to be confirmed on online sources , interviews, intros etc
Brian D 10:39:42 AM
Yeah definitely BAY-har now that I read more. Father is Spanish
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:40:02 AM
Ahhh. Excellent. Now we know!
Brian D 10:40:26 AM
Reminders of Mickey Sprawl show w the DOOM!
Matthew Robinson 10:41:06 AM
love DOOM in the morning

The greatest of all musical Daniels
Matthew Robinson 10:43:26 AM
that's a great observation 2nd best musical Dan ;)
Matthew Robinson 10:43:44 AM
3030 yes yes yes
richard lyons 10:44:48 AM
And Yes!!
TAndy 10:45:05 AM
You're the best, Dan.
Mike Lupica 10:45:40 AM
Nice Aphrodite's Child sample right there!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:49:46 AM
I always wondered what that sample was. A good one!
TAndy 10:49:49 AM
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:50:53 AM
I was doing a clean out of my records recently and this one was briefly on the chopping block until I remembered that it is, in fact, awesome
TAndy 10:51:36 AM
I can't believe you would ever consider putting Caribou on The chopping block. The only time that's permissible is if it's the bed of winter and that's the only food you have
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:51:54 AM
I know. It was silly and I was being overzealous
TAndy 10:51:56 AM
Incomprehensible 🤣
TAndy 10:52:32 AM
TAndy 10:52:48 AM
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:53:32 AM
I bet he only lets his mom call him that
TAndy 10:53:34 AM
TAndy 10:54:07 AM
I came from a thing where somebody on Twitter called him that and he thought it was the funniest thing
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:54:25 AM
TAndy 10:55:48 AM
One of the best grime voices in the biz
Brian D 10:58:52 AM
Gremlins repped
TAndy 10:58:52 AM
That might have been the best station ID I ever heard
TAndy 10:59:15 AM
Not the Hull Kogan gremlins 🤣
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:04:23 AM
All goblins are secretly Dans
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:04:46 AM
But not all Dans are goblins
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:05:20 AM
There are no Dans in Goblin, however
TAndy 11:11:48 AM
Dan sounds like my kind of guy
Mok like an Egyptian 11:13:47 AM
Happy birthday Bob Marley!
richard lyons 11:14:24 AM
Such a good Daniel Johnson rendition!
Matthew Robinson 11:14:24 AM
i guess this is thie 3rd best musical dan..
Matthew Robinson 11:14:35 AM
Johnston is so precious
Brian D 11:14:45 AM
Danny Whitten!
Matthew Robinson 11:15:25 AM
omg sorry.. just noticing all the musical dans now haha
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:15:26 AM
Almost played the Crazy Horse version of this, but this version is so much more fun
Mok like an Egyptian 11:22:07 AM
Dan Fogelberg?
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:25:13 AM
Oh yeah, forgot about him. I'll be honest that I don't really know his stuff (beyond whatever showed up on classic rock radio in the late 90s)
Mok like an Egyptian 11:26:56 AM
lol ...Danny and The Juniors.
Christine 𓅓 11:30:28 AM
Daniels dans le playlist ce matin 💯
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:36:26 AM
Hey Christine!
fr1dayafternoon 11:39:37 AM
Really dug that Dan Melchior. Not familiar that album, I’ll have to check that one out.
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:40:32 AM
One of my favorites of his Das Menace albums. Not sure if it's in print physically, but I know it's on Bandcamp
Christine 𓅓 11:41:50 AM
Hey Dan...Sounding good!
fr1dayafternoon 11:42:29 AM
Christmas for the Crowd is the only one from Das Menace I have. Constantly finding albums of his I haven’t heard yet, but that’s Melchior.
fr1dayafternoon 11:46:49 AM
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:47:04 AM
There are like 4 or 5 more Das Menace albums, so you are in for a treat!
richard lyons 11:56:04 AM
Damn good Dan show! Thanks!
Christine 𓅓 11:56:23 AM
Cheers, Dan
Christine 𓅓 11:56:55 AM
We're dan-dan-dancin'!
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:57:42 AM
Thanks for listening y'all! Hooray for the new schedule!
Mike Lupica 11:58:20 AM
Happy birthday, Greg Lyon! (Sorry, that's my muscle memory reflex for this song.)
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:58:39 AM
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:59:26 AM
I was actually in the room for that (us getting a musical telegram to sing this song for Greg on his birthday in 2003 (?). The musical telegram guy was dressed as a clown. It was incredible.)
Mike Lupica 11:59:42 AM
