Late Friday afternoon.... time to crack a beer and run some red lights (figuratively, of course)
Rob from MaryDonationland 3:03:38 PM

Didn't know this one. Learn about a good band every week on RR!
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:09:45 PM
Are our levels OK?
Jen Redlights (host) 3:10:42 PM
I love that! Blood Wizard also apparently cousins to Gary Numan and Robyn Hitchcock!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:11:01 PM
@parrscream be careful out there! See ya, work! ;)

Five more to reach our first goal!
Ambrose Hughes 3:15:08 PM
Hi Jen and Jon! Very Pozi - tive start.
Dan Ruccia 3:15:32 PM
Rob from MaryDonationland 3:15:38 PM
@Dan, too bad it's not 42 pledges from 666
Jen Redlights (host) 3:16:55 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 3:31:19 PM
hi, Friday!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:37:11 PM
Can we make 15 pledges during the show today, guys???? Only 5 more to 600 for WPRB!
Rob from MaryDonationland 3:38:18 PM
Bummer about Mark Stewart
Jen Redlights (host) 3:38:26 PM
supersad :(
James Ruggiero 3:38:30 PM
Thanks Jen! Trying to get you to 666
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:39:14 PM
We're one closer thanks to you!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:39:39 PM
Jim!!!! Awesome!!!
Commie Francis ☭ 3:40:18 PM
Dan Ruccia 3:43:26 PM
I remember when I started at WPRB, The Pop Group's Y was so crazily out of print that the only way to get it was a super expensive Japanese import. Such a good record
fr1dayafternoon (and every month, too) 3:44:59 PM
Jon, reminds me of your recent Jamie Branch tribute show. I found it especially informative because I hadn’t known much about her prior.
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:46:59 PM
Thanks, Fr1day. Grief for relative strangers is so weird. When Jaimie Branch died all I wanted to do was listen to their music. When Mimi from Low passed I found it very difficult to put on Low.
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:47:09 PM
Sorry to bring the room down. pledge.wprb.com!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:47:21 PM
celebrating lives and discovering amazing artists in the process
Jen Redlights (host) 3:47:55 PM
shall we now discuss instead how much this Civic record rules?
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:48:13 PM
Yeah, this is a timeless winner.
Mike Constantine 3:48:48 PM
Wait a minute....this is Jen from Get Off My Lawn?
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:49:41 PM
Three pledges away from our first goal of the show!
Commie Francis ☭ 3:49:46 PM
She's back!!!!!!
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:50:12 PM
Nobody loves ALL-CAPS AUSTRALIAN BANDS like Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:50:26 PM
It is I!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:50:35 PM
Older and not at all wiser
Commie Francis ☭ 3:50:48 PM
I'm always listening to Jen's show going who's this sounds Australian
Jen Redlights (host) 3:51:04 PM
hahahah Commie, you've got my number ;)
Mike Constantine 3:51:05 PM
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:51:36 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:51:36 PM
haha hi, Mike! This is a fun surprise! Guess who my guest star is next week??
Commie Francis ☭ 3:51:55 PM
It's not your fault that Australia has a seemingly infinite supply of super rockin' bands
Brian "D" for Donor 3:52:02 PM
Hey you kids... rocking show Jen & Jon!
Mike Constantine 3:52:04 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 3:52:21 PM
You'll have to tune in to see! ;)
Jen Redlights (host) 3:53:05 PM
Commie, for sure, and i still need to visit and watch all the rock!
Mike Constantine 3:53:14 PM
Well....I shall...it's the 90's allover again
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:53:39 PM

Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 3:57:50 PM
601 pledges and rising...
Commie Francis ☭ 4:00:48 PM
I would like to pledge in the amount of Jon Solomon
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:01:23 PM
The exchange rate is...not great!
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:03:04 PM
I pledged! That was no joke! You should also pledge! pledge.wprb.com.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:03:22 PM
I'll be extending my pledge to get a hold of that BEACH TOWEL
Dan Ruccia 4:04:03 PM
WPRBEACHTOWEL would be a mouthful of an aussie band name
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:04:26 PM
BEACH TOWEL? Love their split with MINI SKIRT.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:04:37 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:04:53 PM
you have given me a great idea
Jen Redlights (host) 4:05:18 PM
which is to play Mini Skirt
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:06:36 PM
Always a great idea in my opinion.
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:06:49 PM
Five more pledges and Jen hits her goal!

Classy Pat in the chat!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:08:56 PM
Now that's a member slogan if ever I saw one, Classy Pat! Thanks, Louis!!!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:10:16 PM
@Brian new Lisasinson record coming soon!
Commie Francis ☭ 4:10:50 PM
Am i accidentally listening to my own show?? You are killing it Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:11:06 PM

Brian "D" for Donor 4:16:01 PM
Dip in a pledge toe.. pledge tub is warm...
Rob from MaryDonationland 4:16:11 PM
@Jon, are the Bath Boy stickers going to be available to listeners?
Rob from MaryDonationland 4:17:46 PM
I consider myself, pledge boy ...
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:19:35 PM
Rob, I wanted to make them for donors but I suspect it will be "select donors like you."
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:19:55 PM
Three pledges away! Mini Skirt!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:20:10 PM
From the lovely quotes even during this show alone, I think we could pull off an entire bumper sticker series
Brian "D" for Donor 4:20:13 PM
Handshake stickers... back channel alley like..
Jen Redlights (host) 4:20:14 PM
Commie Francis ☭ 4:20:43 PM
Ray Davies voice: australiaaaaaaa
Rob from MaryDonationland 4:20:56 PM
Jon, I'll be happy to make another donation just for the sticker
Jen Redlights (host) 4:21:06 PM
hahahaha @Commie
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:21:27 PM
Rob, when the drive dust settles I'll find somewhere good to make 50x of these and hopefully figure out how best to get in the best hands...
Classy Pat 4:22:15 PM
I don't know Mini Skirt but I love this. Sounds like David Lowery fronting Hold Steady
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:58 PM
it's a terrific record, @classy pat!
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 4:23:22 PM
They're like a more tuneful Cosmic Psychos to these ears. Should be generic pub rock but thankfully isn't!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:23:50 PM
and this one is a Hey, You Kids classic....
