Rob from Maryland 🦅 4:45:46 PM
Good morning!
Jon Solomon (host) 4:58:55 PM
Hello, Rob!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:00:17 PM
Howdy! I am/we are ready for Part Four!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:01:04 PM
Same on this end.

DJ Pup 5:03:33 PM
Walked in the door from work and caught the intro booming from my kitchen, got here just in time!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:04:22 PM
Quality crew here so far!
DJ Pup 5:05:41 PM
Putting rice in the rice cooker, crackin open a cold seltzer, evening is ready to get started over here

Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:08:44 PM
I'm tempted to pour some red right now. But I'll probably wait
DJ Tenderloin 5:08:52 PM
Greetings Jon Solomon! Greetings listeners / chatters!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:05 PM
I so over-bammed, Chef. That said this Momofuku chili crisp is DELICIOUS.
DJ Pup 5:09:17 PM
Goin for a sweet or dry red Rob?
GW Carbo 5:09:19 PM
4th quarter! Crunch time! Clock management! Other football metaphors!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:09:37 PM
GW, we're giving 110% and leaving it all on the field!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:01 PM
How is everyone this week?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:11:27 PM
I have my blackberry seltzer cracked.
Andrew Chalfen 5:11:48 PM
Could use an appearance of the Sun.
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:12:07 PM
DJ Pup, we have a bottle of Cs open, so I imagine it will be cesium wine tonight
DJ Pup 5:12:19 PM
Ahh good choice of seltzer! I have a wild berry, stop and shop brand
DJ Pup 5:12:33 PM
Wonderful Rob!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:12:53 PM
There's a new Polar Blackberry Mango I need to try and apparently the ShopRite in Montgomery has these new flavored Topo Chico cans I'm curious about...
DJ Pup 5:13:32 PM
Blackberry mango sounds like a flavor somersault
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:13:37 PM
My wife is heating up cider, so it will be rum or bourbon and hot cider instead of Cs wine tonight
Jon Solomon (host) 5:13:45 PM
Very nice, Rob.
DJ Pup 5:13:50 PM
Big fan of the Topo Chico hard seltzers
DJ Tenderloin 5:14:34 PM
big fan o' the hot spiked cider R from MD
Jon Solomon (host) 5:14:52 PM
I don't drink the alcohol, but if anyone's going to do a hard seltzer well it would have to be Topo Chico (and their Coca Cola overlords).
GW Carbo 5:15:18 PM
Chai Rooibos tea for this guy, thank you.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:49 PM
Delicious choice, GW. There will be tea in my post-show future for sure.
Chef Emeril Lagasse 🍳 5:18:30 PM
Polar Orange Dry all the way
Jon Solomon (host) 5:18:37 PM
Shout out to MEMORIALS for making it hard to pick one favorite song by releasing three different albums last year!
Andrew Chalfen 5:18:58 PM
Waterloo has a peach. I wish I had one.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:19:30 PM
A friend seems to have been given a new Waterloo flavor early by accident. Look for raspberry tangerine on shelves soon! Scoop!
DJ Pup 5:22:12 PM
That sounds delightful
Jon Solomon (host) 5:24:13 PM
So, there was seltzer. Which was refreshing and delicious. Then there was hard seltzer, which not my scene but OK. However the new trend of now calling what was originally known simply as seltzer "soft seltzer" MUST STOP.
DJ Pup 5:25:06 PM
i’m fortunate to have never heard that until tonight, yeeesh
DJ Pup 5:25:38 PM
Its like calling a non-smartphone a “dumb phone”, I’m not here for the retroactive dissing
Jon Solomon (host) 5:25:41 PM
I've seen it more frequently recently. It is my "vinyls."
Carlos Ramone. 5:26:08 PM
Have yet to see one yet but Jarritos is getting into the hard seltzer/ soda biz
Jon Solomon (host) 5:26:44 PM
Best logo around, Jarritos.
jwh 5:26:59 PM
Soft Seltzer was scheduled to headline Pitchfork fest this year but now who knows...
jwh 5:27:05 PM
also hi!
DJ Pup 5:27:08 PM
might as well swap the “hard” moniker for “difficult”, “tackling a case of difficult seltzers tonight”
Jon Solomon (host) 5:27:19 PM
Problematic seltzers.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:27:27 PM
Hello, JWH!
DJ Pup 5:27:28 PM
jwh 🤣 thats a good one
DJ Pup 5:27:57 PM
“Soft” has no bizzy with the fizzy
Jon Solomon (host) 5:28:41 PM
In my day we called hard seltzers "wine coolers" and that was that.
DJ Pup 5:29:31 PM
With fashion in cycles, that’l come back someday
Jon Solomon (host) 5:29:45 PM
Then we put our landline in our Ocean Pacific wallet and biked to the mall.
jwh 5:29:51 PM
this FACS song rules. yr maybe already mentioning but they are playing w Dianogah & Bloodhype at Smashed Plastic in Chicago on Feb 3 :D
Carlos Ramone. 5:30:09 PM
In my day I called ZIMA crap from first taste
Jon Solomon (host) 5:30:14 PM
Wish I could be there.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:30:32 PM
Set is being recorded for a(nother) live FACS LP!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:32:08 PM
ZIMA = "soft Clearly Canadian."
jwh 5:33:15 PM
heck ya
DJ Tenderloin 5:33:27 PM
Zima is piss. As is Smirnoff Ice! Not a fan of that stuff. I like bourbon. and lately I've gotten back into beer.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:34:01 PM
Zuma > Zima.
Roffle 5:34:17 PM
ZIMA was a not so soft drink that my girlfriend in California liked. lol
Carlos Ramone. 5:34:35 PM
@tenderloin..Whoever owns ZIMA attempted a comeback a few years ago
Jon Solomon (host) 5:34:39 PM
I spent more of today than I care to admit listening to people doing Neil Young impressions recording Xmas tunes. It is February tomorrow.
DJ Pup 5:35:31 PM
It’s Christmas somewhere…
DJ Tenderloin 5:35:37 PM
Some of that might be my fault. sorry.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:36:06 PM
DJ Tenderloin, you were only the tip of this fault iceberg.
DJ Tenderloin 5:36:47 PM
"only the tip"
Roffle 5:37:24 PM
Hi Jon, but isn't it a bit early to be deep diving Christmas playlist fodder to such an extent?
DJ Tenderloin 5:37:31 PM
to make up for it I am beginning prelim work on a NY Xmas mash for you!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:37:56 PM
DJ Pup, I have a flip phone and I frequently call it it a "dumb phone"
Jon Solomon (host) 5:38:07 PM
Roffle, more late than early. The work is never truly "done."
Roffle 5:38:28 PM
DJ Tenderloin 5:38:39 PM
I truly loved having a flip phone.
DJ Pup 5:39:03 PM
If it comes from a place of tenderness and not distate I’ll take it Rob! You get a pass
DJ Tenderloin 5:39:47 PM
It's always our hearts....
Roffle 5:39:59 PM
@Tenderloin, So thinking about getting another one. I so miss the simplicity!
jimbooooooo 5:40:45 PM
Snõõõõõõõõõõpin 24/7 in my house
DJ Tenderloin 5:41:19 PM
Damon! A friend from our teenage punk rock days...
DJ Tenderloin 5:43:19 PM
Roffle - the flip phone I think was one of the best phone designs. I've seen those new flip phones! Tempting
DJ Tenderloin 5:44:03 PM
They were also thankfully small so they could fit in your pocket - that's the main thing. phones now are too big
DJ Pup 5:44:23 PM
I think the best phone I ever had was the Env 3, the master chief-green colored one
Roffle 5:44:35 PM
@Tenderloin, So agree!
DJ Tenderloin 5:45:25 PM
I got the iphone mini just cuz it was the smallest phone i could get
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:45:32 PM
DJ Pup, I love my flip phone!
DJ Pup 5:46:00 PM
DJ Pup 5:46:25 PM
It was an Env One, not the 3*
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:46:38 PM
Hey Jon, in late, but great song to get in on!
Roffle 5:46:45 PM
Oh shit, stop the show! I need to put on my windbreaker! BRB
DJ Tenderloin 5:46:46 PM
RfMD - what kind of phone?
Carlos Ramone. 5:47:10 PM
@Jon..son went to Ithaca college. Long weekend visits in spring and fall were great!,
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:48:40 PM
DJ Pup, it's an eTalk from Verizon. I really was going to get a smart phone because my old phone's ?2G system was going away, but Verizon sent this one to me for free.
Roffle 5:48:41 PM
I myself had a Razor flip back in the day.
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:49:20 PM
my old phone of course was not a smart phone either
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:49:31 PM
I still have a Razor that I thought about activating again, but I don't think it would work too great
Jon Solomon (host) 5:49:51 PM
Carlos, I went to my fave Vietnamese place, hit up my favorite coffee spot, went and got two comics, walked around the great Cornell art museum, enjoyed a surprisingly one-sided college basketball game and was home by 8 pm!
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:50:09 PM
I too opted for the iphone SE/mini for the small size
Carlos Ramone. 5:50:33 PM
Is angry moms record store still there?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:50:37 PM
Travis, your package shipped yesterday.
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:51:14 PM
Nice! Thanks Jon! Windbreaker for next weeks show!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:51:18 PM
Angry Mom is still there but given I need to listen to records I bought in 2020 I did not visit.
Kelly Nielsen 5:51:57 PM
Saigon Kitchen is great, unless you have a better spot
jimbooooooo 5:52:19 PM
Another Habibi banger 💥💥💥
Jon Solomon (host) 5:52:29 PM
That is exactly where I went, Kelly. I knew the owners had retired but glad to see the staff kept it going.
Roffle 5:52:34 PM
@Travis, Not going to do fakebook with it it, but text and voice and some dopey pictures of stuff works for me.
Carlos Ramone. 5:52:40 PM
@jon…love angry mom stickers..had them on my cars for many years
Jon Solomon (host) 5:53:35 PM
Saigon Kitchen and Gimme! Coffee on the same block is hard to top. I did mis-order my lunch and had to order some extra veggie spring rolls to manually put over my vermicelli to correct this error...
Jon Solomon (host) 5:54:12 PM
Jimboooooooooo, I didn't miss you sneaking in here.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:54:37 PM
Hope your re-addressed package reached you. If not, it is en route!
TAndy 5:55:05 PM
Got muh PRB swaggggggggg
Kelly Nielsen 5:55:19 PM
What's a few extra spring rolls among friends
Kelly Nielsen 5:55:45 PM
I'm a big fan of Hawi for Ethiopian food
jimbooooooo 5:56:15 PM
Oh I got it...thanks for the intercept and deflection!
jimbooooooo 5:57:13 PM
Perfect soundtrack for rehydrating tamarind for pad thai
DJ Tenderloin 5:57:19 PM
Enjoying my PRB T - soft!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:57:41 PM
Kelly, I only saw that spot afterwards and honestly while I love Ethiopian food I think the injera would have tuckered me out for the drive home.
Carlos Ramone. 5:58:23 PM
Has it been determined who the person on the current T may be?
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:28 PM
Glad everyone digs their swag.
Kelly Nielsen 5:58:35 PM
There's no doubt
Roffle 5:58:43 PM
@Kelly, Ate raw meet at an Ethiopian place in the U district in Seattle with my fingers on the floor setting. Sorry. Never again. lol
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:50 PM
It is a current WPRB DJ. Not sure I can say any more! Perhaps they will reveal themselves.
Kelly Nielsen 6:00:08 PM
Oh no Roffle! That would be hard to come back from
Carlos Ramone. 6:00:14 PM
I thought I had seen it before during show/ chat
Jon Solomon (host) 6:00:48 PM
Kelly, we may go back up to Ithaca this summer and if we do Hawi it is!
Roffle 6:00:53 PM
@Kelly. I ain't even back yet. lol
Kelly Nielsen 6:00:54 PM
My swag arrived to the sunny west coast today. Thanks Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:01:35 PM
Awesome. So far only one package has been returned due to incorrect address! 🤞🏻
DJ Tenderloin 6:01:46 PM
is it Commie? On the T. I could've sworn when I met her (she works at my wife's office) that she had what appears to be that haircut?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:02:20 PM
I'd rather not say. If the DJ wants to share it is them on the shirt, they're welcome to. Not my story to tell!
Jon Solomon (host) 6:02:27 PM
(That said, it is not Commie.)
DJ Tenderloin 6:03:03 PM
Fair nuff.
Roffle 6:03:41 PM
My fridge sticker works. I will not be returning it.
jwh 6:05:23 PM
this is a great chair dance song, that said i need to get outside before it's totally dark. thanks for being awesome, DJ Jon Solomon
Jon Solomon (host) 6:05:49 PM
Go outside, JWH! Thank you for being awesome as well.
Carlos Ramone. 6:06:21 PM
DJ McSweden should get the next shirt. As long as no copyright infringement to be had against it
Roffle 6:07:04 PM
I only dance in the dark. Sunset is so liberating.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:07:38 PM
I dance like everyone is watching.
Roffle 6:08:12 PM
Everyone is
DJ Tenderloin 6:09:34 PM
You know the song "He's the Greatest Dancer" by Sister Sledge? Well that was written about me.
Carrie Stiffler 6:10:49 PM
Last track makes me want to rent out the entire roller rink and put you in charge Jon
Jon Solomon (host) 6:12:46 PM
I'm in!
Roffle 6:16:20 PM
OMG, I used to go to a roller rink in Rahway as a kid sometimes. lol.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:17:34 PM
With Kendall Park closed, I am not even sure where the closest roller rink is.
Roffle 6:17:38 PM
Maybe more Carteret.
jimbooooooo 6:17:47 PM
My primary care physician keeps mixing up Sunwatchers, Sunburned Hand of Man, Sun Araw, and Sun Ra. How unprofessional.
DJ Tenderloin 6:17:58 PM
Not a skater. Had a disastrous first date once at a roller rink. horrible.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:18:09 PM
For shame, Jimbo.
jimbooooooo 6:18:21 PM
South Jersey... Burlington maybe has a rink still?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:19:48 PM
I went to my new primary care physician on Monday for my annual physical. While there, I complimented the person taking my blood on her "I Like Big Veins and I Can Not Lie" pin. I think she thought I was just being polite until I added "Sir Mix-a-Lot must be very proud."
DJ Tenderloin 6:19:56 PM
Seeing my doc tomorrow.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:21:12 PM
Hope it goes smoothly. This was a positive experience, and I felt much more listened to than at a prior practice.
Roffle 6:22:04 PM
Still processing that last one Jon. I simply love tasking the smart ones out there with a bit of love feed back
TAndy 6:22:28 PM
I've got two weeks before I can see mine for the insomnia/sleep anxiety I've had since December 🤐
DJ Tenderloin 6:23:05 PM
this is to make sure I'm up on all my routine shots and vacc's - heading to South America in March and April!! Already got my yellow fever and typhoid shots...
Jon Solomon (host) 6:23:24 PM
Oh wow. Important to get that stuff in order. Hope it will be a fun trip.
DJ Tenderloin 6:24:31 PM
TAndy - hope you get some relief from that. Are you a weed smoker at all? I have friends who use a little for those exact symptoms
Roffle 6:25:03 PM
Holy shit Tenderloin, Going on expedition or what?
Roffle 6:25:29 PM
Got an Elephant rifle?
DJ Tenderloin 6:25:36 PM
Jon - yep - trip of a lifetime! my wife has been applying for this travel grant for non profit lawyers who do what she does, anyway after 8 years of applying she got it! So we're off
Jon Solomon (host) 6:26:06 PM
Incredible news.
DJ Tenderloin 6:26:22 PM
She will meet with some of her counterparts down there, if you will. while I hunt nazis.
DJ Tenderloin 6:27:08 PM
Seriously - very exciting stuff. planning it has been a bit overwhelming. we were going to ecuador but decided to scrap that due to unrest.
Roffle 6:27:24 PM
Definitly take the elephant rifle. I'll buy the bullits!
DJ Tenderloin 6:28:14 PM
right now - Mexico City first for a week, Peru, Bolivia - then probably to Rio De Janero
Kelly Nielsen 6:28:43 PM
This is epic
Jon Solomon (host) 6:29:01 PM
If you want Mexico City food recommendations I can introduce you to a pal who goes there often (and loves it).
DJ Tenderloin 6:29:10 PM
BTW - Jon - if you have any recommends re: music, bands, etc. to look out for let me know. I'll be checking with Commie too - she knows so much about music from EVERYWHERE
Jon Solomon (host) 6:29:32 PM
Said pal is also a music guy, so might be good to introduce you regardless!
DJ Tenderloin 6:29:43 PM
Yes! food too! though we already have the first two nights reservations! My wife's bday is that first week
Jon Solomon (host) 6:29:44 PM
This whole piece is a big finish.
DJ Tenderloin 6:31:29 PM
that track was - btw - insane. TAndy - hope you feel better! Sleep is important.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:32:41 PM
While I am glad you catch many overnight shows, TAndy...I do hope you can get what you need!
Roffle 6:33:30 PM
TAndy is a figment of sleep's imagination.
DJ Tenderloin 6:33:45 PM
My wife sometimes uses that podcast you fall asleep to, really low under her pillow.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:34:39 PM
I have been falling asleep recently to old episodes of I Was There Too.
Roffle 6:35:08 PM
I call that power napping
TAndy 6:38:46 PM
@DJ Tenderloin I am, but it takes at least 3 hours after any of that before I start feeling drowsy so it's not particularly effective. I use CBD/CBD-A oil to minimal effect. Its half a benadryl every night, which I know isn't sustainable.
TAndy 6:39:50 PM
I need to get off the night shift but that ain't happening for a while 🫠 but at least in the summer I can be first on the beach after my last night of work. FACT
DJ Tenderloin 6:43:15 PM
TAndy I think you need a little THC - not CBD. CBD is fine I guess but I think you need just a little sprinkle of some THC - prefarbly Indica
DJ Tenderloin 6:43:58 PM
for relaxation. that's my 2 cents. whatever happens I wish you relief!
Roffle 6:43:59 PM
WPRB at a roller rink is quit interesting, but who would play the house organ? A rink gotta have sounds after all, traditionally.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:44:30 PM
I'm sure we could find someone. If they've got an organ even.
Roffle 6:44:31 PM
Roffle 6:45:59 PM
You're the sound guy if ever who could ad lib. Could work.
Dan Wade 6:48:14 PM
Hi Jon. Hi everybody
TAndy 6:48:52 PM
Yeah I getcha. I have an indica heavy hybrid, but still too long to kick in. The CBD oil I use is full spectrum so it has a minimal amount of THC terpenes instead of just CBD isolate. It works sometimes, mostly just stops me from ruminating but doesn't kickstart the dozing off.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:48:59 PM
Dan Wade!
TAndy 6:49:16 PM
I'll have to go to that new dispensary in Ewing to see what they've got though 🧐
Jon Solomon (host) 6:49:42 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:49:53 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 6:52:07 PM
Looks like here or Frenchtown are closest.
Roffle 6:53:08 PM
Beer skate! OMG, I was too young to remember that! Like some kinda bowling or what not...
Roffle 6:55:21 PM
BUT, sounds like a cool place to tune into a party
DJ Tenderloin 6:55:25 PM
OK TAndy here's my new idea - one part Scotch, two parts Nyquil! I call it "Sleepytime Tea". or maybe just some good old fashioned heroin! you'll nod off eventually...
DJ Tenderloin 6:55:56 PM
Serioulsy - TAndy I hope you find something that works for you. Not sleeping = not good
Rob from Maryland 🦅 6:56:44 PM
Somebody should do a set with songs by Famous Mammals, Megafauna, Mastodon, and other similarly named bands. Just sayin'
Andrew G 6:57:01 PM
hey jon! I love the vibe of this song. I don't want to get out of my car to pick up my food
Roffle 6:57:05 PM
TAndy is my favorite sleep sniper.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:57:17 PM
Andrew, it has about 12 minutes left so you might have no choice.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:57:32 PM
Rob, an all-animal show is a fun idea.
Roffle 6:57:56 PM
I see him often as I a know no clocks now.
Andrew G 6:58:00 PM
is that a challenge
Jon Solomon (host) 6:58:28 PM
TAndy, there's a dispensary in Pennington that keeps sending me press releases about how elegant they are. Might be worth checking out?
Jon Solomon (host) 6:59:54 PM
Andrew Stay In Your Car And Listen To The Necks While Your Food Gets Cold Challenge.
Roffle 7:00:02 PM
Hi cold food Andrew G!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:00:35 PM
Jon, there could be an hour of bands with bird names, and hour of bands with mammal names, and an hour with other animal names. Paging Commie Francis?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:00:50 PM
Seems like a perfect Membership Drive show concept.
Roffle 7:02:29 PM
Driven by animals is so 1800's
Roffle 7:02:51 PM
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:03:08 PM
Jon, indeed!
TAndy 7:03:23 PM
Now ye got me wanting to combine the Pennington "medication" and a hot toddy 🤔
Jon Solomon (host) 7:03:46 PM
I've never been TAndy and don't know the first thing about them but here's a URL -
TAndy 7:04:41 PM
Thanks Jon, I'll be looking at that once in settled in at the worksite. Till then, I'm off chat so I can get ready for work! Thanks for the great show as usual, sir.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:05:29 PM
Good luck and thanks for checking in.
Roffle 7:06:47 PM
TAndy, Nap. Touch the dreams and brush them away. At least I do. But they do tend to catch up.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:06:48 PM
Hour three underway. DJ Hog takes to the air at 8.
DJ Tenderloin 7:07:55 PM
Good luck TAndy
Jon Solomon (host) 7:08:08 PM
What did you get, Andrew?
Andrew G 7:08:52 PM
my biryani was calling too loudly to ignore
Jon Solomon (host) 7:09:11 PM
Call of the Biryani is a strong call indeed.
Chef Emeril Lagasse 🍳 7:10:39 PM
Signal was an excellent spooky track for an excellent spooky walk
Jon Solomon (host) 7:10:58 PM
Is it especially spooky out tonight?
Roffle 7:11:55 PM
Another reason to find the dark interseting.
Roffle 7:12:56 PM
No one is scared of a graveyard during the day.
DJ Tenderloin 7:13:29 PM
Roffle 7:13:58 PM
Those too! Fucks sake!
Roffle 7:14:22 PM
I wear high collars
DJ Tenderloin 7:14:52 PM
But vampires of scared of everywhere during the day...
Roffle 7:17:20 PM
I am a night person personally. Adapted.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:17:23 PM
I'm scared of C.H.U.D.s 24/7.
Roffle 7:18:17 PM
I want welded shut manhole covers, but that figures in.
DJ Tenderloin 7:18:20 PM
I used to be a night person - then I hit my 50's and now I got to bed at 10 and I'm up at 5 or earlier. sucks
Jon Solomon (host) 7:19:17 PM
I am more of a "go to bed around 11-12 unless I'm driving to school in the morning" person.
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:19:43 PM
DJ Tenderloin, yup. Though that sleep schedule is great for watching birds in the summer ... provided one can sleep straight through the night and not get up in the middle of the night needing to p**
DJ Tenderloin 7:20:49 PM
which is why i love to go see my buddies in John Train at their residency at Fergie's Pub - it's free and it's from 6PM - 8PM! C'mon out - every Friday through March 22.
Roffle 7:21:12 PM
11 to 12 is about right, but I will say that at 3AM too. Jaded as the day makes me.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:31 PM
Boot & Saddle was the best for many reasons but the fact that shows had be done by 10 was one of the top reasons.
DJ Tenderloin 7:21:38 PM
I'll be there this Friday - guest vocalist Shannon McGill!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:21:57 PM
I'll be out of town, but keep inviting and eventually I'll show up almost anywhere.
DJ Tenderloin 7:22:07 PM
Boot & Saddle is now Solar Myth - I hear it's cool
Jon Solomon (host) 7:23:04 PM
Yeah, I need to get there. Pup hipped me to a show in March that I hope to make - schedule permitting.
DJ Tenderloin 7:24:03 PM
Me too - haven't been yet - and I could walk there! I'll check it out at some point
DJ Tenderloin 7:26:46 PM
hey I gotta hop off - another stellar show Jon! enjoyed it as always. have a great night everybody!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:27:02 PM
I could also walk there, it would just take me a very long time. Thanks for joining us, DJ Tenderloin!
Roffle 7:31:08 PM
Bye Tender!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:31:16 PM
Bye DJ T!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:31:46 PM
I love the name of the song "Midlife Crisis Actor"
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:32:07 PM
And the accompanying vocals. And the band's name
DSM 7:36:35 PM
Howdy Jon. Sick show tonight. Been listening but just now able to sit down and say hello.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:37:39 PM
Thanks, DSM! I initially mis-read and thought you said *you* were sick. Glad it is just the show (and it isn't contagious).
Jon Solomon (host) 7:38:06 PM
Been a fun month. Psyched to get to new new releases though!
Roffle 7:38:22 PM
So top shelf!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:38:39 PM
No jinxes! Could all go wrong these last 22 minutes.
DSM 7:38:39 PM
Great music and radio IS contagious 😉
Roffle 7:38:40 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:39:19 PM
Psyched to have DJ Hog on after, they'll keep up the high quality Grady treated us to from 8-11.
Roffle 7:39:36 PM
Been straped in for years. Let'er rip.
Jen Redlights 7:39:47 PM
hi Jon! I think you were the one who turned me on to the video for this Sprints's the sweetest thing ever.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:40:20 PM
Jen! It is good stuff. Love how much faster the album version of this song is. Really explodes!
Roffle 7:40:48 PM
Heyay Jen!
Jen Redlights 7:40:52 PM
SO GOOD. I was able to pop in just in time - thanks for this as I tie off my workday!
Jen Redlights 7:40:57 PM
hi @roffle!
Roffle 7:42:00 PM
Good company tonight.
Jen Redlights 7:42:18 PM
radio jam crew!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:43:08 PM
The spot has been hopping this evening.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:43:58 PM
Psyched to go home and put on some sweatpants, possibly watch some more of The Bear with the kid. She hasn't seen.
DSM 7:45:37 PM
Sweatpants and TV 👍. About to wrap up The Curse later tonight me self.
Roffle 7:45:45 PM
Why did you not show up at the Barge with sweatpants is my only question.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:45:48 PM
The basketball game I wanted to watch this evening started at 6:30 pm ET so it seems unlikely I'll get to view any of it.
richard lyons:) 7:46:10 PM
Super good show! Thanks, Jon!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:46:17 PM
Roffle, I try and keep my Barge Sweats and my Home Sweats separate. Work / Life Balance, baby!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:46:34 PM
Thanks, Richard. Trying to figure out the final 14 as I type...
Jen Redlights 7:46:39 PM
have so much fun, and also I am SO INTO THE BEAR
Roffle 7:46:52 PM
Color of your tie is my next question.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:47:36 PM
I've already watched it but given how much she likes cooking and now that she's at an age where endless cursing and screaming on the TV is less shocking it was time. We got to season two last night.
DSM 7:47:47 PM
Roffle, piano necktie obviously
Roffle 7:49:04 PM
@DSM, That question was not in Italian.
Roffle 7:50:04 PM
NJ mob Italian that is,
richard lyons:) 7:50:23 PM
Just received my Kid Koala double album and board game! He sent some Pop Rocks with it :)
Jon Solomon (host) 7:51:41 PM
Nice. I briefly regretted yesterday not buying the copy of Liquid Swords with a miniature chess set but also remembered I don't play chess.
Jen Redlights 7:52:17 PM
so many things I missed....this Giant Brain song is outstanding
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:03 PM
Jen, the Giant Brain record is terrific. The band finished a record that was not complete when a member passed a couple years back.
richard lyons:) 7:53:22 PM
Jen Redlights 7:54:04 PM
oh geez, I'm sorry to hear that. but will deep dive on that record!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:06 PM
Amazing, Richard.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:54:26 PM
Jen Redlights 7:54:41 PM
So did Hard Copy grow on you?
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:54:42 PM
This was a great show, Jon. Thanks for sharing all your faves from 2023! I think I've even purchased something b/c I heard it here?
Jon Solomon (host) 7:55:00 PM
Jen, side B of Hard Copy > side A of Hard Copy. That's where all the hits reside.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:55:14 PM
Much appreciated, Rob.
Andy Wing 7:55:29 PM
Same riffs as "Bullet Proof Cupid"?
Jen Redlights 7:55:44 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:38 PM
Andy, now I can't not hear it!
Roffle 7:58:05 PM
Thanks again Jon. All this amazing music always. Dunno what to say. Recap January is just so wonderful and you brought it home again like so many wonderful DJ's here. Really. Thanks for this.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:58:34 PM
Stick around for DJ Hog, y'all. Catch you next Wednesday!
DSM 7:59:06 PM
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:43 PM
