The Freeform Pathogen

Feb 8, 2023 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM


With Mike Lupica

Freeform radio for creative weirdos and deskbound dreamers. A sonic one-stop for Acid Dub, Beardo Bhangra, Micro-Folk Turntablism, Krautdrone, Cambodian Synthwave, Glam Pop, Art-Damaged Metal, Electro-Stoner Jazz, Proto Soul-Punk, DIY Hip-Hop, Psychedelic EDM, Minimalist Power Violence, Pre-Hipster NYC Weirdcore, and Afro-Hillbilly Futurism. Up and down this goddam dial since 1992.

Stay in School, Kids.

Pictured: Yours truly, in my first (and so far only) appearance... in a pamphlet, circa 1999. If I remember correctly, this brochure (and many others like it) was distributed throughout New York state public school districts, probably for use in high school guidance counselor's offices. The photo was 100% staged, but that really is WPRB's old studio in Holder Hall you see in the background, buttressed by an impressive wall of carts.

Also: Nice 90s hair, dork. Wish I still had that Fluid t-shirt.

Not yet, Dennisons, but progress is rolling down from the mountains like water!

Brian D 8:07:14 PM
Anyone can have a pirate ship but a pirate barge is where it's at. The cat's spats of watercrafts
Dennisons 8:07:35 PM
There was a sea shanty themed restaurant in Stone Harbor with blue lit ships that blew my mind as a kid.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:08:26 PM
The running gag about WPRB's "Barge" studio is that we want to decorate it like a seafood restaurant. Tatty ol fishing net on the walls, barnacles, clam shells, etc.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 8:08:38 PM
I need to read the rest of that pamphlet! Such a cliffhanger! 😳
Rofflestomp 8:08:40 PM
Guinness is a part of us time or we are just wasting the fuck out of our time. But that's just me. :)
Rofflestomp 8:09:37 PM

Mike Lupica (host) 8:09:49 PM
I especially appreciate the pronunciation key for "announcers".
Marcus Watt 8:10:09 PM
It's not your fault that you appear in a pamphlet that recommends The Rush Limbaugh Show.
Mary Jones 8:10:53 PM
I really, really want the Barge to go all-out seafood restaurant themed. I might even cry if I get to see it then.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:10:59 PM
I know. A dubious honor, Marcus.

Mike Lupica (host) 8:13:04 PM
Did someone from WPRB "liberate" the iconic welcome mat from the Route 1 Denny's in 1990-something, or is that just an awesome dream I am remembering?
Dennisons 8:13:14 PM
🥷 🥅🦞
Jon Solomon 8:13:32 PM
I "liberated" a Denny's coffee mug then.
Jon Solomon 8:14:04 PM
Somewhere there's a photo of two WPRB DJs with the Denny's waiter who would serve us all the time after shows holding all the swag we gave him on his last night working.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:14:05 PM
So many crimez. This is starting to feel like an Aldo Nova song.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:14:33 PM

My relatives and Jon are not into the shelfish thing, but the Dennys' coffee. sure.

One of them is Sean K Murphy. The other one is...probably Matt Robb?

Rofflestomp 10:01:29 PM
I have an attention span. I love being here. Fuch Math!
jimboo 10:01:56 PM
you can play Fantasy by Aldo Nova 12 times in a row if you want to
Colin 10:04:28 PM
i would look forward to that song swipe segment.
Rofflestomp 10:05:32 PM
So fuch matters, but then nothing fuch matters. All good.
Rofflestomp 10:06:22 PM
Divide by zero etc...
DSM 10:07:16 PM
yo doods
Rofflestomp 10:09:22 PM
I don't want to die because of nutbags. Way too many nukes. Rather launch music!
DSM 10:11:42 PM
Can The Barge have an actual Listener Lounge where I can eat a hoagie and shotgun a beer?
Alan Pasnyk 10:13:11 PM
@ Mike: Thanks for doing the Impossible!
Mary Jones 10:14:45 PM
This station means so much to me, and has for 30 years. Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, it was a lifeline to a larger world. Keeping it going through the pandemic has been a Herculean effort on the part of you all, and I know I’m not alone in wanting to thank the station.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:14:50 PM
DSM, probably not, but there's a park nearby with a bench and one of those portable cig-butt receptacles. Seems proimising.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:16:16 PM
Well done and big cheers to DJ MikeLupica and all involved with the satellite location! And staying operational during extreme days! 🛰 🎶🎵
Mike Lupica (host) 10:16:24 PM
DSM 10:16:24 PM
I second Mary's sentiments.
Bud Burroughs 10:16:31 PM
I remember the first pre-recorded pandemic broadcast, then the first live broadcast, then the first in-studio broadcast... exciting times!
richard lyons 10:17:06 PM
This is amazing!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:17:25 PM
Bud, it's all going in the coffee table book someday!
Rofflestomp 10:17:56 PM
Robo was a GOD!
Rofflestomp 10:19:12 PM
Rather good one actually. Best of the best for quite a while.
Bud Burroughs 10:20:19 PM
I did, in fact, spend most of my day listening to Robo-DJ. It was still better than anything else on the dial.
DSM 10:20:33 PM
Been digging this Kilynn Lunsford stuff
Rofflestomp 10:20:45 PM
Programed by insanely smart folks.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:21:44 PM
DSM, yeah, me three! Super great record!
DSM 10:23:29 PM
Also @Mike, if you like your Dion gritty, you HAVE to check out his album Born to be with you, phil spector produced in the 70's and dirgey as fuck. A song about Dion kicking heroin is a highlight
Mike Lupica (host) 10:23:45 PM
Oh wow! MUST HEAR! Thanks for the tip!
TAndy 10:23:46 PM
the work meetings have finally concluded. Full attention to more important matters (WPRB) can finally be given
Mike Lupica (host) 10:24:05 PM
Right on, TAndy!
Colin 10:24:34 PM
i enjoyed the robo dj era, it was fun having no clue what was next.
Alan Pasnyk 10:26:02 PM
Musik to send tanks to Ukraine!
Bud Burroughs 10:26:30 PM
I did a lot of Shazaming during the robo months, and resorted to googling lyrics when that didn't work.
jimboo 10:27:23 PM
Same, Bud! Robo still does a respectable job daily at 6am!
TAndy 10:27:32 PM
I feel a bit grateful that I only started listening to the station after the robo era
Mike Lupica (host) 10:27:49 PM
RoboDJ gonna get put out of work by ChatGPT
Rofflestomp 10:28:06 PM
A smart folk with with a turntable or a decent knowledge of cool stuff! Those fuckers! Lucky us!
jimboo 10:28:22 PM
Ugh, I love the Langley kiddos

Alan Pasnyk 10:28:59 PM
The saddest song that I ever heard was the one that WPRB played before going off the air for the night during the late 2009 or so years...
Mike Lupica (host) 10:29:28 PM
Alan: probably "Wind in the Rigging" by Young Marble Giants?
jimboo 10:30:08 PM
There's a collection of youth orchestras doing Sun Ra that is funnnnn
Alan Pasnyk 10:30:49 PM
@Mike: dunno, but after that the hiss of FM static...But Never Again!
Rofflestomp 10:31:24 PM
I totally remember Rocky and Bullwinkle and not even the long shit., but weird shit too.
Rofflestomp 10:31:50 PM
Before COVID
Rofflestomp 10:32:41 PM
This new era is excellent!
Alan Pasnyk 10:32:57 PM
Wow! Neil...Yes...
Mike Lupica (host) 10:33:55 PM
This Neil Vibe is my Favorite Neil Vibe
Alan Pasnyk 10:35:16 PM
@Mike: cause it comes from the heart so much
JoeyMono 10:35:17 PM
Hi Mike, Listening in from L.A.! Glad I caught your show this evening.
jimboo 10:35:39 PM
Time Fades fave Neil.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:36:00 PM
JoeyMono! Holy hell, it's been many years old pal!
TAndy 10:36:02 PM
Sweet, I'll be around there next week Joey 😎 spreading the good word of good radio
Pete Trenham 10:36:17 PM
I feel lame just chiming in to love that Neil Young song, but wow. That was great.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:37:08 PM
Pete, the whole record has that vibe. The Neil official bootleg series is too vast for me to keep up with, but that one is tops for sure.
Rofflestomp 10:37:13 PM
I just bought a baritone guitar and this sounds right on. Just sayin.
Rofflestomp 10:45:54 PM
Thanks for tonight's stuff Mike! Have a good night all!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:46:39 PM
Thanks Rofflestomp! Good hang tonight. Big pile of good stuff I didn't get to, but there's always next Wednesday.
jimboo 10:47:01 PM
Danelectro, Roffle? They made some fun, affordable ones a few decades back.
DSM 10:47:15 PM
Later Roffle
TAndy 10:48:05 PM
see ya rof
TAndy 10:48:09 PM
No one saw that.
Rofflestomp 10:50:15 PM
@jimboo, I went the cheap route, but I can do setup and fret dressing. Any guitar is awesome. Name brand is kinda silly these days.
Ossy 10:50:50 PM

TAndy 10:51:14 PM
DSM 10:51:48 PM

DSM 10:51:58 PM

@ Mike: Thanks for all the vibes tonight, Great show!
jimboo 10:53:24 PM
Nice, Roffle. Thanks Mike and gnight peeps!(⁠^⁠∇⁠^⁠)⁠ノ⁠♪
