Dana: So you got through the I 95 mess and made it to the Barge????
Chris Mohr 8:09:53 PM
I forgot Modern English had one more than one song. They were not #CrumbBums!
Ambrose Hughes 8:10:20 PM
Hello Dana K! Nice start🎶💥
Gautham Kalva 8:14:38 PM
Hey Dana, just coz you asked. Can you play any song with an absurdist sense of humor? Preferably an obscure one?
Dana K (host) 8:15:23 PM
Gautham, I'll see what I can drum up
richard lyons:) 8:16:59 PM
Always a good day when Commie Francis and Dana K are on 😊
Rob F 8:17:29 PM
Frank Zappa comes to mind
Ambrose Hughes 8:18:03 PM
@richard, agreed
Ambrose Hughes 8:19:22 PM
@Dana K. What year is this song from?
Dana K (host) 8:20:34 PM
This current song is from 2022, previous one was from 1980...forgot to put it on the playlist
Dana K (host) 8:20:58 PM

Rob F 8:21:57 PM

Dana K (host) 8:30:39 PM

richard lyons:) 8:33:19 PM
this Ibex Clone is so good. Reminds me a bit of Bob Mould/Sugar
Dana K (host) 8:33:39 PM
they're great. saw them a month or two ago in Philly, seeing them again in Memphis for Gonerfest in September
Brian D 8:34:48 PM
That Ibex Clone was great yeah! Lil bit of Icicle Works / J Cope sound too. Total time warp sounding band

Jim Otter 9:24:44 PM
Hi all!
Dana K (host) 9:25:46 PM
welcome jim!
richard lyons:) 9:28:58 PM
I said this last week but it happened again-WPRB was playing in the background, then I heard, 'Don't Back The Front' WOOO!
Dana K (host) 9:29:12 PM
:) :) :)
Chris Mohr 9:39:36 PM
I may still have a cassette somewhere that includes "What Use" taped off the air on WPRB circa 1982.... on my portable cassette player, naturally
Dana K (host) 9:42:38 PM
ha, excellent, chris!
Chris Mohr 9:44:01 PM
Ooh, the Lorrys!
Jim Otter 9:44:31 PM
I have a non-specific, not-fitting the vibe of this show request. So maybe for next time. But when you played There Goes Concorde Again a while back, you mentioned that you had 3 or 4 songs that were even... moreso. And I'd love to hear those songs
Dana K (host) 9:47:08 PM
I think I was talking about a Native Hipsters song that was even more obnoxious than that one. But I can certainly play a lot of obnoxious music.
Jim Otter 9:49:46 PM
well you have piqued my interest
Colin 10:06:49 PM
this album, besides you, is sitting nicely with me. I listened to a couple of tracks last night
richard lyons:) 10:07:02 PM
Dana K (host) 10:07:09 PM
yes. i also enjoy the vibe
Colin 10:07:49 PM
i just got all excited when i heard that bass intro
Colin 10:10:04 PM
that was a short song, i definitely played 2... 3x? last night.
Colin 10:16:02 PM
my listening situation tonight is i got a big ol 8ish+ bedroom house all to myself. wprb tuned in on multiple stereos rn
Dana K (host) 10:16:16 PM
surround sound!
richard lyons:) 10:17:08 PM
Colin 10:17:25 PM
official count in, 7.5 bed rooms. it is kinda surround sound. 2 stereos one clock radio = 5 speakers
Colin 10:18:20 PM
windows are open so all the outside nocturnal critters get to listen too.
Dana K (host) 10:18:52 PM
i hope they come in to keep you company
Colin 10:20:48 PM
this is not the nightmares i done got buried in my cd notebook.
Colin 10:21:20 PM
i liked that one!
richard lyons:) 10:21:48 PM
Jim Otter 10:26:38 PM

Ŧ₳ndy 10:30:43 PM
I may be slow to catch on in chat but friday nights this summer really did just get better with DBTF
Dana K (host) 10:31:26 PM
Colin 10:32:48 PM
not only a bass solo, a german dance music bass solo.
Rob F 10:36:10 PM
This music is so good
Michael D. Okum 10:38:02 PM
Gold Und Silber... German Disco Synth Beats iz the BEST!
Ŧ₳ndy 10:38:24 PM
Anyone else going to the Dark Entries party next week?
Dana K (host) 10:38:33 PM
wish i could, i'll be here!
Ŧ₳ndy 10:38:45 PM
That guestmix earlier this week has me pumped
Rob F 10:39:24 PM
That guestmix was cool
Ŧ₳ndy 10:39:58 PM
u know it's a good DJ mix when I love it and i only recognize one track
Colin 10:43:43 PM
tandy, DE party is on my radar, but the next two weeks i'm buried in work as well as packing to move on july 1
Ŧ₳ndy 10:43:59 PM
Oh word, hope the move goes well duede!
Ŧ₳ndy 10:44:04 PM
Typo. Keep. Blah.
Dana K (host) 10:44:36 PM
yeah, good luck with the move!
Colin 10:45:20 PM
me all all tomorrow, sup duuuuueeeeddddeeee
Ŧ₳ndy 10:45:31 PM
The only part of moving I enjoy is deciding how to decorate the new lace
Colin 10:46:40 PM
i'm taking almost nothing with me. the new spot is a big ol blank canvas. pretty excited
Ŧ₳ndy 10:47:10 PM
No furniture, no bed, no electronics? D:
Ŧ₳ndy 10:47:35 PM
JAM 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨
Rofflestomp 10:50:49 PM
This one is great too. Thanks for the sets Dana.
Colin 10:50:50 PM
bed, electronics, plants, clothes, all my other neato thingys. gonna buy an ez chair on day one, then the rest later.
Ŧ₳ndy 10:51:26 PM
The EZ chair came on my third week at my current place. The cushioning is cheap, but a seat cushion and a car seat back make it the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in.
Colin 10:51:34 PM
so many jams! there has definitely a roving dance part going on here.
richard lyons:) 10:52:12 PM
PLANTS! Hell yeah, Colin :)
Ŧ₳ndy 10:52:38 PM
Does anyone have any plant suggestions for a basement apartment with limited sunlight, besides little succulents?
Colin 10:52:51 PM
some of my plants are 30+ years old.
Ŧ₳ndy 10:53:05 PM
My father has the second floor apartment and his kitchen is full of vines and plants, so jealous.
Jim Otter 10:53:10 PM
great set, always appreciate how a DBTF set flows together
Jim Otter 10:53:34 PM
TAndy, what you want is a snake plant, the only plant I have never killed
Rofflestomp 10:53:48 PM
LOL TAndy, I own a disturbing amount of memory foam myself.
Colin 10:54:07 PM
i think norfolk pines can do with lower light. i have one and love it. but it can getg BIG
richard lyons:) 10:54:42 PM
Cheers, TAndy, Colin, Rofflestomp, Michael D. Okum, Rob F, Jim Otter, Chris Mohr, Brian D, Ambrose Hughes, G Gautham Kalva, Alan Pasnyk, Dá Bəng Gôu :)
Colin 10:54:57 PM
