Hey all y’all! Good to see you up and typing, LizBot!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:21:56 PM
Ha... lifted from a Prisonshake record, Jon.
Liz Bot 8:22:25 PM
Hi Dennisons! I hope live action shorts weren’t rife with child soldiers and hospital clowns
Dennisons 8:24:24 PM
Child molestation, child brides, beating up trans people, fascist Catholics, and dead mums. The usual oscar fare.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:25:07 PM
I think context is in order here.
Liz Bot 8:25:13 PM
Dennisons, maybe you can draw moleboy or make a mole boy response video to The Boy the Mole the Fox and the Horse. Or just redux the whole thing with growls n snarls
TAndy 8:25:15 PM

Sorry Mike!

Damn this goooooood
Liz Bot 8:27:07 PM
@Dennisons - Sounds like it some light fare! Like Mary said, wouldn’t kill them to throw in a couple comedy shorts!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:27:11 PM
Word, Jimbo. Whole record seems rad.
Liz Bot 8:27:43 PM
Hi Andrew!
Liz Bot 8:29:03 PM
Dennis, wouldn’t be Oscar Nom live action shorts without at least two child soldiers.

This song rules
Mike Lupica (host) 8:30:04 PM
She just emailed me. COSMIC, RIGHT?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:30:22 PM
Hey Marcus, welcome!
Colin 8:35:58 PM
you bought that for a dollar
Liz Bot 8:36:38 PM
Oh man, I love Turkish rock but I just butcher the pronunciation so badly
Colin 8:37:30 PM
mike pretty much nailed the pronunciation. but ahab sent him the cheat codes
Liz Bot 8:39:20 PM
I got a bunch of Anatolian rock records from Bob Dickie at the old 9th St Records near the Italian Market in the early 2000s and I love them but I have no more of an idea how to pronounce the song names now than I did then. I need Ahab’s help!
jimboo 8:41:04 PM
banger ALERT
jimboo 8:42:06 PM
Think there's a country-fried version of this...
Mike Lupica (host) 8:42:43 PM
Most of me wants to think you are talking about the noisy krautrock jam I just started playing, Jimbo.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:43:19 PM
And when I say krautrock, I of course mean some spooky punk band from Cincinnati.
Colin 8:44:56 PM
*wonders what the percentage of punk bands from cicinnati could be called spooky. i bet it's high.
Ossy 8:45:35 PM
What better way to spend the Wednesday night, than in the Starlight Sparkling Rainbow Lounge?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:45:40 PM
Colin, I've only ever been to Cleveland, but all available evidence points positively at your theory.
Commie Francis ☭ 8:49:09 PM
Cincy is extremely haunted
Mike Lupica (host) 8:49:28 PM
By the ghost of .... Dr. Johnny Fever?
Colin 8:49:34 PM
i had a show trade situation with with bands from about 40minutes outside of Cincinnati (bonafide ohio county side). They were more spooky space punk, but def spooky
Commie Francis ☭ 8:49:47 PM
Well now yeah
Mike Lupica (host) 8:50:37 PM
Commie, glad you are here. Need your take on the next band. They have a song which I think sounds RIDICULOUSLY like Crass. It's not the one I'm playing , but still...
Colin 8:50:52 PM
"Cincy is extremely haunted" is totally gonna be a hardtimes headline
Mike Lupica (host) 8:50:59 PM
Commie Francis ☭ 8:54:35 PM
Do you mean special interest or whatever is next?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:55:19 PM
Special Interest
Commie Francis ☭ 8:55:53 PM
Hmmm trying to think of what song you mean
Mike Lupica (host) 8:56:13 PM
Concerning Peace. Gave me crazy Crass vibez.
Commie Francis ☭ 8:56:18 PM
I'm familiar with them but not THAT familiar
Commie Francis ☭ 8:56:34 PM
Yeah i don't think i know that one, will investigate
Mike Lupica (host) 8:56:40 PM
I feel like I'm late as hell to them, but I dig this record lots.
Liz Bot 8:59:51 PM
Vaguely tempted to go to that Depeche Mode show in the fall but it’s a stadium show…eh
Commie Francis ☭ 9:00:03 PM
Ok yes that is very crass-ish, it's reminding me of some other peace punk too but the vocals are very Steve ignorant

AM "preset" buttons in cars were fun...KA-CHUNK! Even more so when the station display secretly tilted back to accept an 8-track. I'm not old...YOU'RE old!
Colin 9:15:35 PM
yikes in the fact that 70 don't seem that far off anymore🤣
Liz Bot 9:16:10 PM
You know, this song sounds a lot like a The Who’s How Many Friends Have I Really Got from Who By Numbers and predates it by 2 years. At least the whole intro really reminds me of that song
Alan Pasnyk 9:16:12 PM
Hello Pitcrew!! Late to the party, but I'll be stickin' around rest of tonite...

I’m confused, is she Kevin Nash or Scott Hall?!
Rofflestomp 9:29:58 PM
Kevin Shields has a bunch of guitars tuned to each song and switches for each song. lol

Mike, I really liked your story about your family and The Outsiders.

Hi Mike! Made it in the nick of time, evenin' all.

You should be known as Marcus Wart then
Rofflestomp 10:17:45 PM
I must ask Marcus. Which one?
Marcus Watt 10:22:27 PM
Gotta change the subject. No AI could ever replace Mike, or any PRB DJs

I remember when Spotify rolled out its "Tastebuds" feature, which it touted as a way to let users discover new music through their friends and I was like, wait, discovering new music through friends? What kind of fucking sorcery is that?

Might help. Most of my friends are idiots.

Just calling something "AI" doesn't mean it really is Intelligence, it's just a marketing ploy...
