richard lyons :) 3:08:06 PM
Happy Friday!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:08:31 PM
I can't stress enough how fun it was to hear these songs performed with no drums or bass! Bob is amazing.
Colin 3:13:14 PM
it's always great to when a performer captivates an audience without stage trickery or a bad ass bass players.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:18:35 PM
Also always nice to be reminded how ridiculously amazing Husker Du were!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:18:48 PM
buncha 20-year-old kids
Colin 3:23:54 PM
i checked out this record over the last week good stuffs through and through
Jen Redlights (host) 3:25:00 PM
oh that's great! it's pretty nuts
Jen Redlights (host) 3:31:45 PM
Why do I always forget about Bastro???
Brian D 3:37:42 PM
This album kicks
Brian D 3:38:00 PM
Sault delivers
Jen Redlights (host) 3:38:26 PM

Brian D 3:46:21 PM
Waddaya mean you only got tirty tree albums mon?
Brian D 3:47:55 PM
I think Game o Thrones theme writers checked their Morricone crib notes for some of their show
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:24 PM
thoity tree and a thoid!
Brian D 3:48:39 PM
Hee hee!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:49 PM
i'd like to know who can take on the ennio mantle for warrior music.
Brian D 3:49:01 PM
Love that Gilmour esque echo on the slide here
Jen Redlights (host) 3:49:28 PM
The steel lap guitar is just gorgeous
Brian D 3:49:58 PM
The quieter parts of main GoT theme and some other stuff reminds me of Ecstasy o Gold ya
Brian D 3:50:33 PM
Just noticed the similar melody to Wicked Game here ha!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:56:22 PM
i don't know the original of this one...curious how close it is
Rob from Maryland 4:02:48 PM
Good afternoon everyone!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:03:09 PM
why, hello there!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:10:48 PM
quiet afternoon in chat-land!
richard lyons :) 4:11:35 PM
shoveling snow, but listening!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:13:34 PM
woo! this is good shoveling music.
Mike Tropiano 4:15:10 PM
I can picture Adam West's Batman dancing to this with Julie Newmar's Catwoman.
Rob from Maryland 4:15:23 PM
It was 80 degrees in DC yesterday. Today it's been in the 50s though it is finally slipping into the 40s in my area right now
Jen Redlights (host) 4:15:35 PM
@mike that is a perfect image!
Colin 4:15:36 PM
richard must be from round these parts because snow don't exist anymore for us.
Rob from Maryland 4:15:52 PM
We *might* get snow tomorrow. In which case I'll have to tap into this shoveling music
Jen Redlights (host) 4:15:52 PM
@rob 80 degrees!!
Rob from Maryland 4:16:07 PM
@Jen heck yeah!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:16:41 PM
love it! I could get with some snow but definitely am not into shoveling currently.
richard lyons :) 4:16:48 PM
an unusually heavy snow in Portland OR area
Jen Redlights (host) 4:16:51 PM
(hard to play records)
Jen Redlights (host) 4:17:11 PM
glad it wasn't an ice storm this time around!
richard lyons :) 4:17:18 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:17:30 PM
i love that this crowd is so geographically diverse
Rob from Maryland 4:17:59 PM
It's 49 right now in my area. 24 hours ago it was 78!!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:19:16 PM
keeping you on your toes!
Mike Tropiano 4:21:24 PM
I used to like taking long walks when the ground used to get covered with that white powdery stuff, forget what it's called.
Mike Tropiano 4:21:56 PM
And it was fun walking the dog in it too.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:13 PM
haha i just imagine those days when you get to do that faux skating down people's front walks. not enough for snowballs, but enough to goof around.
Andrew Pantry 4:22:37 PM
42 in my part of NJ now
Mike Tropiano 4:23:06 PM
That was another highlight of those times.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:23:37 PM
Mike Tropiano 4:24:01 PM
I think when we begin to drive is when some of our love of winter weather wanes.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:24:20 PM
could be worse, i guess. My coworker in Minneapolis sent a pic of their 18 inches of snow (measured in Hamm's cans) and something well below zero temps
Mike Tropiano 4:24:36 PM
That, and not having snow days off after we enter the work world.
Mike Tropiano 4:24:47 PM
Yes, winters there are brutal.
Andrew Pantry 4:25:03 PM
gonna be below freezing when the otoboke beaver show in philly is over tonight
Brian D 4:25:19 PM
Great stuff Jen! Clock out time! Happy weekend everyone!
Mike Tropiano 4:25:23 PM
I always wanted to learn how to make an igloo though. They look cozy.
Andrew Pantry 4:25:24 PM
and i won't mind that in the least
Jen Redlights (host) 4:25:43 PM
see ya, @brian! can't wait to see pics of the igloos
Jen Redlights (host) 4:26:06 PM
I'd love a scene report on the Otoboke Beaver show! wish i could go!
Rob from Maryland 4:26:30 PM
Ooh Cub! They always bring a smile to my face
Jen Redlights (host) 4:26:46 PM
Mike Tropiano 4:27:07 PM
Andrew Pantry 4:27:15 PM
saw them 2 nights ago too. they are amazing. also b o n k e r s
Rob from Maryland 4:27:43 PM
@Mike Tropiano, you are so right (driving in the snow). Especially here in the DC area, which is notorious for not dealing well with snow
Jen Redlights (host) 4:28:59 PM
hahaha @mike
Jen Redlights (host) 4:29:18 PM
@andrew ohhhhhh love it! any less, and i would have been disappointed
Mike Tropiano 4:29:36 PM
Philly folks are just as bad, which doesn't make sense since we normally have a couple good storms most winters. People are always in such a hurry.
Mike Tropiano 4:30:51 PM
And the folks in charge alwaysa love the opportunity to get in front of the cameras and show that all is in hand.
Mike Tropiano 4:31:29 PM
And I love zoning out all day watching the weather channel during snowstorms.
Mike Tropiano 4:32:39 PM
Joe's beengone 20 years, or am I wrong?
Jen Redlights (host) 4:32:53 PM
yep, he died in 2002!
Mike Tropiano 4:33:53 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:34:22 PM
it's bananas
Jen Redlights (host) 4:34:26 PM
another time
Mike Tropiano 4:35:57 PM
Yes, time fries...and burns us.
Mike Tropiano 4:36:51 PM
Another one from my youth
Jen Redlights (host) 4:37:01 PM
hahaha likewise! always loved this record
Mike Tropiano 4:39:17 PM
Saw you played Husker Du earlier (when I couldn't listen). At Christmas, went to a record shop on Passyunk Ave. for some gifts. They were playing Candy APple Gray. Reminded me how good they were and how much I enjoyed them.
Colin 4:39:18 PM
In a few short hours, i'll be at the otoboke beaver show!
Andrew Pantry 4:39:18 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:34 PM
@mike it's always nice to have a Husker Du refresher!!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:47 PM
@andrew Hahahaah
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:57 PM
I hope you all love the OB show!
Mike Tropiano 4:43:03 PM
Like this too.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:43:34 PM
Mike Tropiano 4:46:16 PM
I'm actually sitting here in a lab, after all the students have left, listening to the rest of the show. Missed it! Happy to hear this small portion. Thank you so much Jen, made my day.
Mike Tropiano 4:47:25 PM
Plus, there's a better and louder audio system than in my car. Maybe gotta rectify that.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:48:43 PM
I'm so glad you've been enjoying it!!!! And maybe that means your lab is well equipped :}
Rob from Maryland 4:50:08 PM
Thanks for the MI song and the "Seabird" song, Jen. Happy snow-free weekend to everyone!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:51:15 PM
You got it! Have so much fun this weekend!
Rob from Maryland 4:53:42 PM
I'm going to be drinking Dundalk Calling beer tonight. It's from a Dundalk, Maryland brewery and this particular one riffs on The Clash's "London Calling" album cover ... it's pretty good.
Rob from Maryland 4:54:13 PM
And the less it snows tomorrow the more fun I'll have
Jen Redlights (host) 4:58:02 PM
that sounds awesome - glad the beer isn't bad!
Colin 4:59:22 PM
good show, i've quiet-ish in the chat because i was trying to finish the work load. till next week!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:59:59 PM
thanks - and awesome, Colin, see you then!
