Whoah. It's only 9 o'clock here and suddenly Mike Lupica. I just spit coffee on my keyboard.
Mike Lupica (host) 12:05:01 PM
Billy, #6 is taking off for the summer. He'll be around for fill-ins, I suspect.

LOL Ben, that makes two of us.

Mike Lupica (host) 12:08:11 PM
MrM, that was from the Bobby Lee LP
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:08:23 PM
Very nice!
Mike Lupica (host) 12:08:42 PM
Agree... felt like it had a Jonathan Kane-like groove underpinning it.

She's got a great voice. Sounds like distillers
Andrew G 12:21:01 PM
short and sweet!
Mike Lupica (host) 12:21:02 PM
100% agree. When she sings it's perfectly melodic and when she screams, it grabs you by the shirt collar and shoves you up against the wall.

Love the Mood Mosaic comps! And also in similar vein the "Beyond the Valley of the ----beats" series of comps. Great library Funk, schoolhouse rock etc
Brian D 12:32:02 PM
Ya those comps are notorious for the fun/ not fun errors on spells, track number / artist mixups etc... wonder if always accidental or skirting the law/ copyright etc
Brian D 12:33:00 PM
Er mer gerd teh yer terbz!

Richard Lyons, you might need a new grocer
Number 6 12:36:40 PM
I can identify with being hungry at this hour, but I tell my stomach to can it.
Brian D 12:36:42 PM
Big Blood had that great cover of Clean "Anything Can Happen" much like this approach
Brian D 12:37:42 PM
This is Joe Carcione, your green grocer. With your tip for the day! See these lovely vedge-a-tables....
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:37:53 PM
Nice to see DJ Number6! Cheers!
Number 6 12:38:31 PM
I will be hither and yon this summer wherever that is.
Number 6 12:39:02 PM
Hi -ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 and all!
Mike Lupica (host) 12:39:05 PM
Brian, their covers are always top shelf. Check out their version of the Cult's "She Sells Sanctuary"
Brian D 12:40:01 PM
Wow they nailed this one too ya. Gotta check out that Cult cover ya
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:40:08 PM
What is happening to the playlist?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:40:32 PM
Brian D 12:40:53 PM
The daughter blood on high harmony it sounds like. That really tops it all off and seals it. So good
Mike Lupica (host) 12:41:40 PM
Playlist problems? MRM Please elaborate
Mike Lupica (host) 12:42:16 PM
Ahh, sorry. I think I can fix that.
Number 6 12:42:58 PM
All shall be reveled on my triumphant return.:)

Brian D 12:45:02 PM
All is very right in the universe on Wednesday afternoons now. Good lineups ya. Outdoor masks may be recommended for a bit here on Pa / NJ side tho
iamthelabhras 12:45:36 PM
Anyone else want to chip in to have 16 large cheese pizzas delivered to the Barge?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:45:37 PM
Hey kids, don’t misspell COUNTRY! Thanks! 🙃🤣
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:46:35 PM
With anchovies and wax paper, iamthelabhras?!?
iamthelabhras 12:47:07 PM
Sure Mr. M. Why not?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:47:27 PM
I have a list ready 📝
Captain Ahab 12:47:54 PM
Former PRB dj extraordinaire Gabbie Watts had a band called cuntry
Francis 12:48:00 PM
why 16 pizza? You guys having party?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:49:03 PM
17 pizzas for a party
iamthelabhras 12:49:04 PM
@Captain Ahab. Was their first LP titled _For King & Cuntry_? Seems like an obvious choice to me.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:49:30 PM
ErrMahGawd, @DJ Captain Ahab! 👻
iamthelabhras 12:49:50 PM
@Francis Just an exceedingly large number of pizzas I plucked out of the air. As I see it, now that Lupica's violated the no-eating rule there's no going back. It's time to LEAN IN.
Andrew G 12:49:55 PM
chisel! they killed it at the church a couple of weeks ago
Mike Lupica (host) 12:50:34 PM
Miss Gabbie so much!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:50:42 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 12:50:52 PM
@iamthelahbrahs can we at least do falafel instead?
Captain Ahab 12:51:28 PM
sadly not iamthelabhras!
Captain Ahab 12:51:35 PM
hey Mr M!
Captain Ahab 12:52:42 PM
i love anchovies on pizza and it is way more common in the UK, never once have encountered anchovy pizza in the US despite the milennial TV media I consumed suggesting I would
iamthelabhras 12:52:54 PM
Pity @Captain Ahab. There's a rich vein to mine there!
iamthelabhras 12:53:25 PM
@MikeLupica Sure. A 1-pizza-to-2-falfel ratio seems right to me.
Mike Lupica (host) 12:54:21 PM
Anyone want to chime in w/ opinions on the Trenton-phenom of mustard pizza?
iamthelabhras 12:54:23 PM
Just one condition though. You have to freak out about "someone" eating in the barge at the next staff meeting. While eating a falafel! Then show footage of "the unidentified culprit" that is obviously you.
Mike Lupica (host) 12:54:33 PM
LOL, perfect.
Marcus Watt 12:55:01 PM
Mustard, no!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:55:31 PM
this set is fun as hell! 😈
iamthelabhras 12:55:33 PM
"You know what's freaking me out right now? It could literally be anyone of us!"
Mike Lupica (host) 12:56:01 PM
I will grow a big beard for the reveal, iamthelabrahs.
Mike Lupica (host) 12:56:35 PM
Forget it, I cannot spell your feckin' screen name.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 12:57:02 PM
I have to copy and paste it 😂😇

Hi! Love the spiel and good radio! Can’t chat but digging the chatter repartee here as well :)
iamthelabhras 12:57:37 PM
It's all good Mike. It takes time. The "bh" throws a lot of people off, I know.
iamthelabhras 12:58:26 PM this is a vaporwave cover of "How Long"?

Mike Lupica (host) 1:00:27 PM
It's a controversial statement, but I maintain that I invented the Vaporwave genre in the early 2000s with this remix.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 1:01:00 PM
well damn
Marcus Watt 1:01:03 PM
When I was in grade school, the fifth and sixth graders got to serve themselves first. They'd take a soft pretzel, and then spit into the bowl of mustard. Rarely touched it since.
iamthelabhras 1:01:35 PM
That scans @Mike. Give me a sec and let see if I can update Wikipedia to reflect this bombshell.
iamthelabhras 1:02:21 PM
@Marcus Watt. Did you attend grade school on an island? Was there perhaps a conch in there somewhere?
Brian D 1:06:20 PM
Jack Ham approved that statement. Waiting on word from Lambert.

@Tiken Jah Mokoly, yeah! I figured why not go with the b-side today?
Francis 1:23:40 PM
agree 1950's fault. Too many people served in the military, and that had an influence on society. Too corporate and regimented after that. You squeeze a watermelon seed between your fingers, and eventually it shoots out

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

@Francis, funny you should say that because every time *I* see DSM, I think of James Hetfield's hot tub.

TY Mr. M. I have no idea what the Metallica hotub reference is. Please 'splain

The short of it is I was seeing a girl who was personal chef to Mr James Hetfield, and lived in his basement. And I went in Old Man Hetfield's hot tub when he was out of town. Never met him tho. Much more humorous in previous chat somehow
Marcus Watt 2:13:47 PM
The Kid/Sarah piece was great.
Mike Lupica (host) 2:13:49 PM
Still an epic story.
Mike Lupica (host) 2:14:36 PM
@Marcus, yeah! I think some PRB DJs were at the show when it was recorded. If you listen carefully, I believe you can hear Jon Solomon yelling: "PLAY FASTER I CAN'T MOSH TO THIS"
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 2:14:42 PM
Holy Cow. What?! I never remember it accurately. It is funny. Thanks, DSM

Homework assignment, DSM
Mike Lupica (host) 2:34:53 PM
Brian, thank god you're still here. If I played Priest and didn't have any backup, I'd never hear the end of it.
Mike Lupica (host) 2:35:23 PM
And it's weird Priest, not the bare-knuckled stuff.
Brian D 2:35:27 PM
Ya this Dawson is great. Whole lp. If there was another NJ station i would have heard them play the entire first track "The Hermit" few months back. 41 min epic
Mike Lupica (host) 2:36:12 PM
I keep listening to The Hermit waiting to be moved and it doesn't happen for me! I like the shorter ones more... short attention span, I guess.
Brian D 2:36:36 PM
Mickey Sprawl had great Priest lp cut a week thing going few years back. Miss that show

I love the Old Grey Whistle Test video of them doing this song. Rob sporting a woman's blouse and his long, hippie hair.
Brian D 2:41:24 PM
Yup long haired Rob! Love the Unleashed in the East version too
Andrew G 2:42:01 PM
this album definitely spent a lot of time in my tape deck in the 80s
Brian D 2:43:06 PM
The cassette had the drab tan color back body/ clear lid
Colin 2:43:57 PM
I think there is a copy of this cassette still stuck in a tape player in one of my closets.
Brian D 2:44:17 PM
Gull Records. Early label for them. Never qualified for the reissue series like the big label era LPs
Mike Lupica (host) 2:44:44 PM
But to bring it full circle, I would love to hear Richard Dawson do a cover of this.
Captain Ahab 2:45:43 PM
i see you whetting everyone's appetite in the leadup to 3pm
Brian D 2:45:51 PM
My copy of the cassette was 1 of those really old earlier ones that was just a bit thicker than later 80s cassettes. It would get stuck in car players. Needle nose pliers...
Mike Lupica (host) 2:46:19 PM
@Captain, it is the least I can do after fucking up the name of your show !
