Morning Dan!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:07:41 AM
Morning Parr and TAndy!
Mike Lupica 10:11:33 AM
YO TEAM! Just got word that we will be going off the air shortly for a brief inspection of all the tower work that was done over the last few weeks. Should be the last time, assuming all goes well. Fingers X'd!
Parrscream 10:13:16 AM
Thanks Mike! My fingers and crossed and good luck!
Mike Lupica 10:18:37 AM
Off air as of 10:18 AM
TAndy 10:18:53 AM
Inspection pass LETS GOOOOO
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:23:30 AM
I wouldn't want to be one of those workers or inspectors who has to climb however many hundreds/thousands of feet to get up that tower....
Mike Lupica 10:23:49 AM
Can confirm: Tower climbers are NUTS.

Good opportunity for a Station ID
Mike Lupica 10:46:19 AM
yes! As of 10:45 AM
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:47:52 AM
Thanks for the reminder, Dave!
TAndy 10:48:33 AM
Video now
TAndy 10:48:56 AM
Heights like that scare me but the job pays pretty well from when I heard.
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:49:19 AM
I imagine it has to given how scary/risky it is
Mike Lupica 10:53:18 AM
I've probably posted this before, but this video makes me feel like my knees are about to give out. Bookmark now, watch after Dan's show because this Sweeping Promises record is great. https://youtu.be/2A_h2AjJaMw
TAndy 11:06:05 AM
Oh that video rules! I've watched it so much that it's like sleep ASMR now.
TAndy 11:06:43 AM
Can't ever find it but I once saw a video of a helicopter tethering some giant chainsaw to decimate some massive branches hanging between some power lines.
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:07:55 AM
Oh, I've seen that video! It's wild and terrifying
TAndy 11:09:09 AM
This piece goes out to all the helicopter saw operators out there 😤
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:24:32 AM
Don't give Stockhausen any ideas!
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:25:05 AM
Can you imagine a helicopter chainsaw string quartet???
Mike Lupica 11:26:19 AM
Totally random aside, but this Galina Ustvolskaya piece is reminding me (a LOT) of that bonkers 1968 Charles Wilp commercial soundtrack for Afri Cola.
Bud Burroughs 11:29:15 AM
I don't think I've ever heard Galina Ustvolskaya before, but this is pretty intense!
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:32:01 AM
Yeah, her music is really unrelenting in the best of ways
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:38:56 AM
And Mike, I'm gonna have to track that down
Mike Lupica 11:42:30 AM
At risk of becoming That Guy Who Keeps Posting YouTube Links On Someone's Live Playlist And Thereby Possibly Driving Listeners Away From An Excellent In-Progress Radio show... uhhh... here's a link to that Charles Welp track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjFTm4sQBh0
Mike Lupica 11:44:08 AM
*Wilp not Welp
TAndy 11:47:18 AM
The sudden cuts, low video quality, music, and the watermark make that looks like an AI geenrated commercial
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:54:47 AM
Thanks for listening, everyone!
TAndy 11:55:37 AM
Thanks, Dan!
