Richard from Rocky Hill 8:05:20 PM
And I love the top-of-the-playlist artwork ... including bears playing and walking hand-in-hand in a snowy park by Kanako Takeuchi ... Awwwww ...
richard lyons:) 8:05:26 PM
...and turned it up!
rosasolis (host) 8:06:32 PM

Rob from Maryland 8:12:53 PM
Hi @rosasolis, yes, "felicitats, estàs escoltant WPRB" is Catalan, courtesy of Google Translate
Rob from Maryland 8:13:35 PM
And Robert Wyatt was still in Soft Machine for this album (fide wikipedia)
Rob from Maryland 8:13:49 PM
And good evening everyone!
rosasolis (host) 8:14:31 PM
oops! i guess i meant to say if he sung a track here on the album but i dont think he did sadly!
Rob from Maryland 8:14:52 PM
(I deleted the catalan phrase soon after I posted it)
TAndy 8:15:02 PM
i watched fallen angels last night, i really liked it
TAndy 8:15:11 PM
chunky express some other time..............
Rob from Maryland 8:15:28 PM
@rosasolis, wiki only credits him with drums on Fourth
rosasolis (host) 8:17:01 PM
thanks @rob!! and ooh theyre def like thematically v similar.. fallen angels a bit more pessimistic in its loneliness but beautifully shot and lovely companion to chungking express :)
William Lehman IV 8:17:27 PM
Could anyone please tell me what the version of Just the two of us was on before high rise 'sadame'? For some reason I can't see further back on the playlist. Any help is appreciated.
Roffle 8:17:48 PM
Soft Machine! Ya know I already click in for the cool art...
TAndy 8:17:49 PM
yeah i was kinda in the mood for some pessimism so i really appreciated it. poor dude wound up losing all his hair though :'(
rosasolis (host) 8:18:23 PM
@william i will ask dj sara!
rosasolis (host) 8:19:03 PM
hii roffle! always a joy to find the album artwork.. and ooh @tandy i love the green hue to that film too
William Lehman IV 8:19:07 PM
Thank you rosasolis!

DSM 8:25:37 PM
so smooooth
Roffle 8:25:57 PM
Why does that soft Machine album cover strangely look like the symbol for a former artist?
rosasolis (host) 8:26:47 PM
@dsm she sung on cowboy bebop! and @roffle omg i see it.. a very fancy 4
Roffle 8:26:59 PM
Roffle 8:28:54 PM
This is way proggy in Japanese 4/4
DSM 8:31:14 PM
I hear so much about cowboy bebop in the prb chats but have never seen it! I'll have to check it out
TAndy 8:31:51 PM

DubNP 8:33:51 PM

DubNP 8:34:07 PM

rosasolis (host) 8:35:38 PM
Roffle 8:35:41 PM
@DSM, to be honest, I learned about Cowboy Bebop from my kid.
Roffle 8:36:43 PM
Sometimes you just have custody.
Guelo<3 8:37:49 PM
U GOTTA be jotting in the notebook
Guelo<3 8:40:29 PM
Cowboy bebop is essential. This song is too good rn
rosasolis (host) 8:41:43 PM
(✿◕‿◕✿)✎▤ and i have been obsessed with tizita music lately!
Guelo<3 8:42:11 PM
…Rly top genre
Tomi 8:43:53 PM
pram <3
Tomi 8:44:11 PM
I don't know them that well, is that synth(?) just part of their signature sound?
Tomi 8:44:27 PM
electric organ?
Roffle 8:46:13 PM
All organs are electic. Unless you have tons of doe and own a church in 1800
rosasolis (host) 8:46:41 PM
hiii tomi!! i think its an omnichord! theres something music box about it i love it.. like music playing from this underwater crevice..
rosasolis (host) 8:47:00 PM
and @guelo i def need to explore more.. reminds me so much of choro samba in its own way..
Roffle 8:47:01 PM
And employ pipe wizards..
rosasolis (host) 8:47:15 PM
church organs sound particularly lovellly
Tomi 8:47:41 PM
yes! it's tiny like a music box
Roffle 8:48:55 PM
Underwater wave sounds! Music boxes indeed! I wanna bullshit wit with a dolphin for sure.
Roffle 8:49:34 PM
Okay... Just sayin...
DSM 8:49:47 PM
I like the glockenspiel in this version
Richard from Rocky Hill 8:50:01 PM
@ rosasolis (host) Yes, if you can get from sara the answer to William Lehman IV's query about the name and artist if Asian version of "Just the Two of Us," I'd love to know too. Sara may not have been able to put it into her playlist, it was probably in Korean hangul lettering on the CD or other source. But please try. Thanks!
Tomi 8:50:16 PM
random fact from my omnichord rabbit hole...they are releasing a special, 70th anniversary edition
rosasolis (host) 8:52:40 PM
@richard and @william i havent recieved a response yet but was it The Two Of Us (우리 둘이서) by 배인숙?
rosasolis (host) 8:53:25 PM
@tomi omg i need to get one now.. it would be so cute to have.. and @dsm me too i just heard the single version yesterday! and @roffle i love thinking of music boxes alongside manta rays..
DSM 8:54:26 PM
Tomi, is there a price announced?
William Lehman IV 8:55:21 PM
Thank you very much. Found it on YouTube from that text here @Richard
Tomi 8:56:07 PM
@DSM looks like not yet, release is delayed until January
DSM 8:57:16 PM
thanks Tomi!
Roffle 8:57:41 PM
Manta rays are the chill sharks. They won't eat us. They swim with us. I would have invited them over for Thanksgiving if they could have made it.
DSM 9:00:33 PM
Love this Julius Hemphill
rosasolis (host) 9:01:29 PM
i wish there was a manta ray emoji.. and i love the cello here its got me locked inn
Roffle 9:02:54 PM
Sax and cello! Knock me over with a weird thing you can reach for...
DSM 9:03:43 PM
yeah that cello really grounds you
DSM 9:03:58 PM
*throws pillow at Roffle*
Roffle 9:04:16 PM
Chug them double stops
Rob F 9:06:25 PM
This is Dogon cool
Roffle 9:06:51 PM
Coming at you you once I remove the pillows from the cases and throw them back DSM!
rosasolis (host) 9:08:39 PM
hii rob!! its so hypnotic.. and i need more cello like this
Roffle 9:08:39 PM
It's all fun and games until someone gets hit in the eye by a pillow!
Roffle 9:09:41 PM
Ducking is is foul, but effective.
Roffle 9:10:04 PM
- is
DSM 9:10:24 PM
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:16:20 PM
@ William Lehman IV Ahhhh ... Bae In-Sook, formerly of the Pearl Sisters, was our moving mystery vocalist on the Korean version of "Just the Two of Us." excellent. Thank you, sir.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:21:17 PM
@ rosasolis (host) Yes, my vote also for the lounging-by-the-fire-with-snowing-outside concept for tonight's show, as opposed to the sitting-on-the-beach milieu.
rosasolis (host) 9:24:29 PM
@richard i definitely feel that snow concept! but for some reason its like my subconscious is thinking of warmer nights..
Roffle 9:25:17 PM
If you do magic, dream along... If possible everywhere, there will be snow.
Roffle 9:26:16 PM
I love when snow comes round. Then goes.
Roffle 9:27:07 PM
It does
rosasolis (host) 9:28:22 PM
maybe dreaming of snow melting on the beach..
Roffle 9:28:52 PM
It's real.
Roffle 9:29:38 PM
I lived in Alaska and that was normal.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:30:02 PM
@ rosasolis (host) Best of both dreams ... :-))
rosasolis (host) 9:32:02 PM
@richard exactly! dreams always jump around from place to place too.. and @roffle that would make sense! ive been thinking of alaska and the northern territories for some random reason
Roffle 9:32:18 PM
@Richard from Rocky Hill, Man, I really think that is the best of things.
Colin 9:32:46 PM
hi yall! honestly i love a good snowy night but I'm trying not to think about that because we haven't had one in a bit. like trying to forget that lover who don't come around anymore
Guelo<3 9:34:10 PM

Jiano Briggs (1) 9:36:09 PM
This tune cured me scurvy 🏴‍☠️
rosasolis (host) 9:36:10 PM
hii colin! yess i totally get that.. fits in perfect with the general air of wistfulness tho ☆
rosasolis (host) 9:36:19 PM
@jiano omg not scurvyyy
Roffle 9:37:37 PM
@rosasolis, I loved Alaska for 5 years, but, I love, love, love my beloved east coast! The level of genius here is beyond compare. This very strange station is proof. I'm good, and even better.
rosasolis (host) 9:40:35 PM
i love the east coast too! ig i just have an urge to see those places more than live in them.. something about mountains too
Roffle 9:41:11 PM
1700th century cruse? No thanks!
Roffle 9:42:25 PM
The glaciers are worth the trip, but I worked hard up there. Do the cruse for sure.
Colin 9:44:03 PM
i'm very much a visit a place then come home type person. I have yet to travel anywhere that made me question that.
Roffle 9:45:36 PM
@Colin I have been in every state other than Hawaii. I question everything.
Colin 9:45:39 PM
I been on a beach or two where i have thought, this would be a good place to die. (dark i know! but in a good way of thinking)
Roffle 9:46:52 PM
Fuck yea Colin! Fuck a hospital bed!
rosasolis (host) 9:46:57 PM
maybe the yukon too if i ever feel adventurous 😊 and ooh i get it.. its the sense of comfort and finality? about a place..
Colin 9:48:22 PM
i've never been on a snowy island. gotta make my way up north to see some northern lights.
rosasolis (host) 9:50:43 PM
a snowy island with some glaciers in the backround.. or penguins
Roffle 9:51:36 PM
Me, I will charter a very expensive fight above an active lava lake and jump out. Live needs to be weird.
Roffle 9:52:11 PM
Not quite yet though...
Ossy 9:53:41 PM
Roffle 9:53:44 PM

We're turning in too. We're going to check out the City of Caterpillar track, since @rosasolis mentioned how that song references Ok Computer in its lyrics. Thanks rosasolis and goodnight everyone
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:13:24 PM
@ rosasolis (host) Happy/Sad is a Sixties masterpiece ... and there were many other true masterpieces in those days.

Ed Weinberg 10:47:13 PM
Hey Rosasolis I love everything you've played. I'm actually listening to this in my living room :)
Ed Weinberg 10:48:28 PM
Do you DJs ever give out spotify playlists of your tracks? Would be an awesome member perk... but otoh I just tried plugging in that black electric song and only got a remix
rosasolis (host) 10:48:30 PM
hii ed! so glad to hear :) sounds like the perfect, comfy place to do so!~
rosasolis (host) 10:51:53 PM
@ed we dont but some of the songs can be previewed on this playlist? maybe they have a bandcamp or youtube listed somewhere hmm
DSM 10:52:38 PM
this is perfect omg
DSM 10:52:47 PM

Ed Weinberg 10:53:11 PM
Lol just struck out on Aqua Regia too. Something funny -- tonight is the first time in my life I subscribed to Spotify, just to load up some songs on a playlist 😂
Ed Weinberg 10:53:34 PM
I agree what a song
nekogrrrlll 10:53:49 PM
rosasolis (host) 10:53:51 PM

Ed the Internet Archive sometimes has some pretty hard to find stuff. I think i found this James Ferraro set there actually!
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:57:29 PM
@ rosasolis (host) My wish, too, and I'm sure also the wish of many. Thanks for a super playlist this evening.
DSM 10:58:17 PM
oh opps, thought gecko afterlife was live at primavera
Ed Weinberg 10:58:37 PM
Thanks DSM and Rosa! Actually the problem is I'm lazy, I used to rip YT tracks and compile them, but now I just wanna listen to a cool mix with minimal effort. I guess I'll see you guys back here next week ;)
DSM 10:58:42 PM
anyway thanks rosasolis another great show!
