Jen Redlights (host) 3:06:52 PM

Andrew Gruen 3:06:55 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 3:07:29 PM
Andrew Gruen 3:07:30 PM

Andrew Gruen 3:10:00 PM
i love this album! i have it on cassette somewhere
Colin 3:10:06 PM
I'm already looking around for places to put that new wprb pledge drive sticker.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:10:21 PM
That 3 record is great! Pretty underrated, in fact.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:10:38 PM
NICE, Colin. Mine will go on the electrical box in front of my house. ;)
Andrew Gruen 3:11:40 PM
i don't want a lot of stickers on my car but I may have to make an exception
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:11:47 PM
Colin, time for a new bong! I mean sticker BOOK! 🙃
Colin 3:12:23 PM
inspiring sticker location! I pass a random electrical box in the woods on my hikes.
Colin 3:12:41 PM
lol, mrm, another inspirational thought
Jen Redlights (host) 3:12:57 PM
@andrew just the most important ones
Jen Redlights (host) 3:13:26 PM
I enjoy labeling my garbage cans as well.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:13:32 PM
Jon Solomon 3:14:50 PM
Colin, what if I told you there was no sticker for this year's Membership Drive?!
Jon Solomon 3:15:44 PM
You can get a sneak peak at the Spring 2023 Drive Swag here...
Jon Solomon 3:15:45 PM
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:16:10 PM
Colin 3:16:19 PM
lol, I didn't read the small print, those are all tattoos!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:16:44 PM
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:16:54 PM
No more space for tattoos 😎
Colin 3:17:11 PM
my nieces are coming for a visit from the west side later this year. looks like they are gonna be all tatted up with wprb logos.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:17:24 PM
Andrew Gruen 3:17:54 PM
that beach towel is very tempting
Colin 3:17:54 PM
best towel on the beach, in the tub, or at the pool.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:19:07 PM
temporary tattoos are the best way to advertise on children
Colin 3:19:15 PM
*shows up at the office with a beach towel cape.
Jon Solomon 3:19:50 PM
I quote this song often.

i love this song!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:21:45 PM
and this album. Whoa, wait, there's a new MDID single???
Jon Solomon 3:22:13 PM
I was just about to say. Three songs from 1984. Previously released but not on vinyl as intended.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:22:38 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:23:16 PM
thank you, sir, and Scat, too!
Colin 3:27:28 PM
I was thinking same thing (JMC similarities) Vocal style, reverby guitar, all in all great sound and song
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:27:39 PM
fr1dayafternoon 3:28:21 PM
Can’t wait to have WPRB temporarily tattooed on my neck.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:28:51 PM
Much jazz
Brian D 3:29:08 PM
MDiD = classic wprb memories
Jon Solomon 3:29:18 PM
Just the FACS, ma'am.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:29:27 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:29:46 PM
MDID FACS would read as code for something.
Brian D 3:30:12 PM
These tattoos... they're just a temporary phase... like Bobby Sox
Jon Solomon 3:30:51 PM
I admire how FACS writes memorable songs despite seemingly having no traditional choruses.
Brian D 3:31:07 PM
Just the flax. And the hemp....
fr1dayafternoon 3:31:35 PM
I didn’t hear what everyone else seemed to hear in the last Facs album. Maybe this one will win me over?
Brian D 3:31:51 PM
Clock out time imminent...
Jen Redlights (host) 3:32:08 PM
I am a fan of this FACS album! Give it a whirl!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:33:03 PM
that was real nice 👍
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:35:36 PM
Thoroughly enjoying all these swell selections!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:38:06 PM
love it, MM!
Hans Howk 3:40:25 PM
Why does hot weather pair so well with lo-fi max distortion underground shit
Hans Howk 3:40:32 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:41:01 PM
well who are we kidding, doesn't lo-fi max distortion pair with all the good things?
Jon Solomon 3:41:16 PM
Woah, world class segueueueue there!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:42:03 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:42:11 PM
why is there no vinyl emoji??
Jen Redlights (host) 3:42:22 PM
and why did i just notice this?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:43:23 PM
I use 🧿 as the limited edition cobalt blue vinyl

Jen Redlights (host) 3:43:39 PM
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:45:17 PM
well the music is spinning right out of it! 🧿🎵🎶
Daniel MA 3:47:44 PM
Phone was staticky earlier heard a band that I thought sounded good the DJ said it reminded her of her father and she was going to play it all weekend but I couldn't catch the name of the band would like to know if anybody knows the answer that would be greatly appreciated thank you
Colin 3:47:58 PM
that wild boy song had me turning up the volume, probably for the third time this show also, most wprb shows, the volume keeps inching up.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:14 PM
hi @daniel - the band was called My Dad Is Dead!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:30 PM
great band, great record! so glad you liked it!
Mike Tropiano 3:52:37 PM
I say this every week (if only to myself), but gratitude is a good thing for both the giver and receiver. I'm really enjoying the show today. Thanks Jen!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:53:00 PM
fr1dayafternoon 3:54:09 PM
Last night at the Poison Ruin show I really enjoyed overhearing a guy explain Sleaford Mods to his friend between sets.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:54:13 PM
hi @mike! that is so awesome to hear - thanks for being here!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:54:33 PM
oh hahaha how did he explain them??
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:54:50 PM
All the deets, please and thank you
fr1dayafternoon 3:55:32 PM
“One of the most English things you can think of…” was probably my favorite line.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:55:48 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:56:06 PM
I also love how the cover of this new record shows EXACTLY what they sound like
Jen Redlights (host) 3:56:17 PM
sneer and all
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:56:36 PM
Did guy mention the ‘Don’t Go’ YAZ cover?!?
fr1dayafternoon 3:57:00 PM
Yeah it was pretty good
fr1dayafternoon 3:57:16 PM
Oh no more about what they sound like. I only caught some of their exchabge

Hey everyone! Loving these songs! Loving this show!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:04:35 PM
love it, @parrscream!! thanks for being here!
Brian D 4:07:36 PM
Mighty riffage
Jen Redlights (host) 4:08:26 PM
the title is so descriptive
Jon Solomon 4:11:49 PM
Long, full day to this point but I found out I don't have to pick up the kid from school so I am completely zoned out listening from the couch. Might move to the front porch and grab a seltzer on the way...
Colin 4:14:11 PM
it's a good day for cold beverages on the porch. you may need to grab two, for good hydration practices.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:15:17 PM
Jon, I'm glad you get to chill! Here's some chill music.
Jon Solomon 4:16:05 PM
Update: Hello from the porch.
Jon Solomon 4:16:24 PM
I've liked both songs Mike played from this and I like this too. Need to hear the full record!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:17:01 PM
i'm still marveling that it exists, but I have been enjoying it!
Jon Solomon 4:18:04 PM
I saw Chris Leo for the first time in ages at a Jersey City wine bar he was a part of and I made him guess who I was. I'm sure that was as comfortable for him as it sounds.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:18:38 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:18:55 PM
but i guess that he participated means he has a sense of humor. which is nice.
Jon Solomon 4:20:31 PM
Yes. To be clear, this is someone I know / have been around / has appeared in my parents' living room so it wasn't like I was asking a stranger to play this game. Just not in 15 years or so!
Jon Solomon 4:21:19 PM
Could see the gears turning!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:14 PM
haha it's the COVID hair/social gaps that throws everyone off
Parrscream 4:23:33 PM
Was out front doing yard work and listening but was finally able to make it back to my laptop... wanted to confirm that I would also follow anything by anyone from Frodus to the ends of the earth (or however far you said you would follow them Jen, ha ha)
Jen Redlights (host) 4:24:53 PM
Ahhhhh I love that! One of the best bands ever. We'll go together.
Brian D 4:24:59 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:25:06 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 4:26:51 PM
i like to remind myself periodically how friggin good this record is
Parrscream 4:27:10 PM
Jon Solomon 4:27:36 PM
I like to remind myself periodically of the Atom & His Package song title "Sting Cannot Possibly Be the Same Guy Who Was In the Police."
Brian D 4:27:57 PM
'member berries when he walked dat bass lines
Daniel MA 4:28:17 PM
Thank Jen!
Brian D 4:28:29 PM
Bed 2 Big = pert durn good dub bass line for Sting

@daniel welcome!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:30:01 PM
i had to go look up that Atom and His Package album. hilarious.
Bud Burroughs 4:30:45 PM
Atom was right. Definitely a less talented body double on the solo records.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:32:48 PM
he got the woo-woo fever somewhere along the way
Mike Tropiano 4:34:50 PM
This show is hitting all the marks. If I were to ever get married, you gotta be the DJ.
Brian D 4:35:03 PM
Ya great big not little rock n roll show here!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:36:39 PM
@Mike that's the first time I've ever been invited to wedding deejay. I AM SO IN.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:37:22 PM
