DSM 8:05:37 PM

Dana K (host) 8:07:15 PM
I get a LOT of weird records at work...
Ambrose Hughes 8:14:42 PM
Evenin" Jen! I remember this well😄
Ambrose Hughes 8:15:22 PM
Wait ...your not Jen!😆
Ambrose Hughes 8:15:43 PM
Dana K (host) 8:16:28 PM
Jen's cool, I don't mind being mistaken for her!
Jeff Garis 8:18:08 PM
enjoying the show from germantown, philly
Ambrose Hughes 8:18:09 PM
You are comparable I suppose.
Dana K (host) 8:19:23 PM
hey jeff! glad to have you here!
Jeff Garis 8:20:07 PM
Ambrose Hughes 8:20:30 PM
Looking back, did Blancmange have any other hits?
Parrscream 8:22:09 PM
Hey Dana!
Dana K (host) 8:22:19 PM
Dana K (host) 8:22:33 PM
as for Blancmange, they had a couple of other charting singles in the UK
Dana K (host) 8:22:57 PM
Don't Tell Me I think is their second most well known track after the one I played
Dana K (host) 8:23:05 PM
I don't think they had anything in the US
Ambrose Hughes 8:26:19 PM
@Dana, I do have a vague memory of that song, thank you!
Ambrose Hughes 8:27:43 PM
Ambrose Hughes 8:28:32 PM
...as they were called over the pond.
Dana K (host) 8:29:13 PM
I refuse to call them Yaz!
Ambrose Hughes 8:30:09 PM
That settles it then!🍻
DSM 8:30:35 PM
oh nice beatbox was such a killer album
Dana K (host) 8:32:08 PM
Esoterica! 8:34:13 PM
Chat chat much but stopping in to say you rock. Yahoo!
Dana K (host) 8:34:26 PM
Hiiii Esoterica! Thank you!
Esoterica! 8:34:26 PM
Actually Yazoo!
Steve Keane 8:35:39 PM
That was a good show today, Esoterica. I had it on in my work truck
Esoterica! 8:35:57 PM
Can’t chat I meant
Esoterica! 8:36:05 PM
Thx Steve!
Esoterica! 8:36:28 PM
Howdy dsm and Bo!
DSM 8:38:12 PM
Hey Esoterica!
Ambrose Hughes 8:38:22 PM
Hi Esoterica!
Ambrose Hughes 8:41:47 PM
@Dana K, thank you for clearing that up, I never knew the reason why Yazoo became Yaz.
Dana K (host) 8:42:04 PM
Ha, glad I've memorized some useful trivia
Ambrose Hughes 8:43:18 PM
...and how lame a reason!😠
TAndy 8:45:25 PM
This rules rn
Steve Keane 8:47:19 PM
This reminded me a tiny little bit of Bruce Haack for a second.
Dana K (host) 8:48:41 PM
There was a time back at the old studio where I played Haack's the Electric Lucifer and an album of insect sounds from the 50s on both turntables at the same time
Steve Keane 8:53:21 PM
That's the greatest sentence ever put down by human hand.
Ambrose Hughes 8:56:33 PM
@Dana K, can that be repeated since I didn't get to experience it first time?😉
Dana K (host) 8:57:00 PM
I don't have access to that bug record anymore! It may have been a once in a lifetime event...
Ambrose Hughes 8:58:28 PM
Oh dear!🙈
Steve Keane 9:01:29 PM
I can make insect noises for you. Only $300!
Jeff Garis 9:04:12 PM
Great show tonight, Dana! Really enjoying it. Thanks!
Ambrose Hughes 9:04:14 PM
So can I for $295!
Dana K (host) 9:04:48 PM
aw, thanks for listening, Jeff!
Dana K (host) 9:05:08 PM
they specifically need to be 1950s insect noises
Ambrose Hughes 9:07:19 PM
@Dana K I'll put Brill cream in my hair and wear pink peg slacks and blue suede shoes!
Steve Keane 9:08:02 PM
But 1950s insects were all Republicans.
Tomi 9:16:02 PM
this set is fire tonight
Dana K (host) 9:16:40 PM
Ambrose Hughes 9:16:53 PM
@Steve, I'll take your word for it!
Ambrose Hughes 9:18:48 PM
I think Pethie would approve of this show tonight.
Dana K (host) 9:21:28 PM
I definitely had her in mind when putting it together
Steve Keane 9:22:55 PM
@ambrose, I have an extensive enemies list, like Nixon. And Nixon is still on it. He kept my family out of Bayside.

-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:44:49 PM
Fun timez! Gotta upgrade to vinyl (rerelease!)?!?
Steve Keane 9:44:58 PM
In the 80s I went for those because I could play them on the tape player me and my dad installed in the 1970 Pontiac Tempest I bought off him for a dollar when I turned 16 in 1983.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:46:27 PM
That’s a great historical tidbit.
Steve Keane 9:47:13 PM

Dana K (host) 9:52:33 PM
@MrM, yup, I don't think they've put anything out since the last decade
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:52:37 PM
Well that’s good because I’m not that old yet 😭🤣 you could’ve gone with 350 ☺️
Steve Keane 9:52:57 PM
I do.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:53:18 PM
Nifty! Thanks DJ DanaK!
Steve Keane 9:53:23 PM
Jello's older than me, though. Ha!
Steve Keane 9:54:02 PM
DANAK. That's totally your new name.
Dana K (host) 9:54:23 PM
It's like Garak
Steve Keane 9:55:08 PM
It is!
Ambrose Hughes 9:55:36 PM
@Mr.M💀 I'll give you that 49!😉
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:56:26 PM

-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:56:48 PM
Cheers, Ambrose Hughes!!
Steve Keane 9:58:09 PM
Nah. That would require effort and I'm drinking soju, so...no man.....
Steve Keane 9:58:32 PM
Soju is so good
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 9:58:57 PM
Soju! Yumz! Cheers, Sungsaengnihm!

Dana K (host) 10:00:28 PM
Steve Keane 10:01:09 PM
TAndy 10:02:11 PM
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think Pethie said that Commie Francis will be taking over for her next week as well.
Dana K (host) 10:04:10 PM
You might be right. I do know she will be filling in for me on the 8th.
Dana K (host) 10:04:24 PM
So rest assured you will hear Pethie by September
Dana K (host) 10:04:48 PM

yoni from kdu 10:09:38 PM
Needs a voiceover telling me that it's going to make me sweat. But so do all these songs.
Dana K (host) 10:10:55 PM

yoni from kdu 10:15:06 PM
Steve Keane 10:16:28 PM
The Kurosawa films are all Toho studios, like the Godzilla films. I say they're the same fictional universe.
