fr1dayafternoon 3:05:43 PM
I can’t lie I double checked if there was a schedule change with that intro.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:05:59 PM
hahah i had a feeling that might happen. it's such a pretty record!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:06:15 PM
we do pretty but also pretty ugly ;)
Colin 3:06:32 PM
lol, i checked too. whew!
Rob from Maryland 3:06:36 PM
That Balmorhea piece had me wondering if there was a sub today. It was nice. Like fr1dayafternoon, I too interrupted what I was doing to see if there was a schedule change
Rob from Maryland 3:07:21 PM
Now a mythic sunship is causing the cosmic rupture!
fr1dayafternoon 3:07:25 PM
I’m not saying I disliked it. Just caught me by surprise.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:07:47 PM
totally get it! and glad you're all here. hi!
Colin 3:08:19 PM
dj jen just keeping us listeners on our toes
fr1dayafternoon 3:08:24 PM
Hey everyone. We’re all here, we made it.
Rob from Maryland 3:08:30 PM
Back to whichever one of my 6 dozen browser tabs I pulled myself away from to type in the chat.
Rob from Maryland 3:08:49 PM
Hi everyone!
richard lyons :) 3:08:53 PM
Wooo! RRL! Hi Jen and chat!
fr1dayafternoon 3:09:10 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 3:10:02 PM
hahaha @fr1day i love it
Jen Redlights (host) 3:10:13 PM
hi, Jon! We are ready for you!
Mike Tropiano 3:10:37 PM
This is great....the first song had me thinking "whop died now?"
Jon Solomon 3:10:58 PM
Wearing a new running beanie so small even Ian MacKaye might pass on donning it.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:11:22 PM
@jon pics??
Jen Redlights (host) 3:11:37 PM
@mike i am loving this too!! need more of these guys
Jen Redlights (host) 3:11:49 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 3:12:22 PM
Brian D 3:15:11 PM

Rob from Maryland 3:15:41 PM

Colin 3:16:12 PM

Dave Leafey 3:22:56 PM

Colin 3:23:02 PM
now I'm visualizing a performance art piece featuring runners with various shakers fixed to them and periodically warning the audience, on your left!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:23:29 PM
hi Dave! So good. @colin HA
Mike Tropiano 3:24:46 PM
reminds me of Mars Volta
Jen Redlights (host) 3:25:05 PM
interesting! i can see that! less jazzy, same foundations.
Brian D 3:26:10 PM
Mike Tropiano 3:26:47 PM
I'm with the consensus, this set is killer!
Bud Burroughs 3:30:03 PM
Yeah, fine tunes! Causa Sui is also on the excellent El Paraiso label.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:30:04 PM
awesome, Mike!!! Stick around if you can!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:30:30 PM
YES on Causa Sui! I really love that band and have been trying to convince myself to shell out for more of their records :}
Kymberley Suddarth 3:30:34 PM
Verbal Assault - sums up my entire week. :)
Jen Redlights (host) 3:31:17 PM
Kymberley!! Glad i could round it off on a high note ;)
Kymberley Suddarth 3:31:54 PM
Hiya love! Happy to be able to turn it up today. :)
Jen Redlights (host) 3:32:02 PM
this record at ear-splitting volume helps + ticks off the neighbors. Win win! so happy you're here!
Kymberley Suddarth 3:32:18 PM
Kymberley Suddarth 3:32:29 PM
That is a heart, by the way. LOL
Jen Redlights (host) 3:33:18 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:33:29 PM
Colin 3:33:43 PM
I definitely notched up the volume a bit on the VA
Mike Tropiano 3:33:51 PM
Work's been keeping me from my needed mid-week infusion of thee rock and thee roll, but you're making up for it today.
Mike Tropiano 3:34:27 PM
And it only gets better.
Brian D 3:34:38 PM
Love everything I've heard from Causa Sui. Found out about them from wprb. Ahab show and probably here as well
Jen Redlights (host) 3:35:12 PM
awesome on causa sui!! And @mike, sorry about the mid-week blues - I hear you . I'm making up for lost time myself!
Bud Burroughs 3:35:30 PM
Yeah @Brian, Captain Ahab was probably also my intro to Causa Sui
Jen Redlights (host) 3:35:45 PM
Captain Ahab is the source of a lot of magical things!
Jon Solomon 3:36:35 PM
Have two things in my "preview folder" presently due entirely to hearing each band on Captain A's show.
Mike Tropiano 3:37:45 PM
Music like this is our SSRI
Bud Burroughs 3:38:21 PM
I have an ever-expanding "Music to check out" list. At least 50% of the current WPRB air staff have influenced that list so far.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:39:07 PM
love it! i get so many tips from you guys, too -- feel free to share!
Colin 3:44:24 PM
speaking of our lists of band to check further, I just added bear in heaven. new to me and i love it!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:45:04 PM
oh nice, Colin! Those guys are *WEIRD*. I love them.
Kymberley Suddarth 3:45:15 PM
I second the vote for Bear in Heaven. Fantastic!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:45:47 PM
excellent, you guys!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:46:00 PM
even better, they have a bunch of records
Brian D 3:46:19 PM
Speaking of lists of music... Bandcamp Friday... wish list grown so
Mike Tropiano 3:47:08 PM
If this is the less talk, more rock version of Redlights, you need some wind chimes , and that mellow, understated delivery of a mid-seventies FM DJ.
fr1dayafternoon 3:47:26 PM
I’m equally practicing restraint and entertaining suggestions for Bandcamp Friday.
Brian D 3:47:27 PM
Sahel Sounds name your price for back catalog stuff today
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:15 PM
hahahah @mike you're right, and more yacht rock
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:26 PM
what's at the top of everyone's bandcamp friday list??
Kymberley Suddarth 3:48:45 PM
I believe I have overloaded my Spotify.
Brian D 3:49:43 PM
Happy 70th Birthday Robyn Hitchcock!!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:50:01 PM

dan Cochrane 3:55:24 PM
Great (new to me) stuff today Jen. Hi everyone, enjoying the added sand in my Campbell’s new eng. chowder. Sonic Youth I know of course.
Kymberley Suddarth 3:56:18 PM
We spent a good amount of time at a dinner party discussing what we are listening to now, what song carries us (the song you "check in" with because it is a lifetime fave) and the song/s that explain you now.
dan Cochrane 3:56:59 PM
After watching Frontline doc on Bezos, Amazon, I’m giving it up for lent. That laugh of his is diabolical.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:57:28 PM

Kymberley Suddarth 3:57:29 PM
Give him a white cat and he's Dr. Evil.

Kymberley Suddarth 4:01:18 PM
I am not sure he likes HIMSELF.
Francis 4:01:43 PM

dan Cochrane 4:01:44 PM

The Crested Caracara is a handsome relative of falcons, which has not yet been seen in Pennsylvania https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Crested_Caracara/overview. It normally is no closer than Florida (where I had an all too brief view from a highway) and Texas (where I have seen it a lot)
dan Cochrane 4:45:12 PM
Here comes the flood, we say good bye…to flesh & blood
Rob from Maryland 4:45:17 PM
I'm always happy to see band names that are or look like bird names
Jen Redlights (host) 4:45:54 PM
@rob thank you for that! i had no idea!
Alan Pasnyk 4:46:38 PM
Hi Rob! No snowbirds here in Doylestown, no snow...yet...
Rob from Maryland 4:48:43 PM
There are a few caracara sightings from New Jersey, including a bird at/near Princeton Junction for a few days in September 2012.
Rob from Maryland 4:49:06 PM
Hi Alan, the snowbirds didn't even visit during the snow? Ingrates!
Alan Pasnyk 4:49:43 PM
❤ Mew!
dan Cochrane 4:49:49 PM
I once saw an ingrate, juvenile
Alan Pasnyk 4:51:01 PM
@ Bob: I kinda miss seeing the little buggers hopping around in the snow, even if I have to shovel..
Rob from Maryland 4:52:01 PM
@Jen, I am making the chat a full service chat 😉
Jen Redlights (host) 4:52:38 PM
