Did Beck sample this for Devil's Haircut?
Jon Solomon 3:28:23 PM
To steal my own line from when I introduced the film at the Princeton Public Library..."a documentary so good I'm willing to ignore that Kid Rock is in it."
Andy Wing 3:28:33 PM
Just tuning in and hearing the Detroit MC5 discussion. Got any Electric Six?
Matt Sabbath 3:28:55 PM
Andy for the win! E6!! ✊
Matt Sabbath 3:29:28 PM
Andy W I met Dick Valentine in San Francisco. Hilarious dude.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:30:20 PM
I don't, but that would have been an excellent idea!!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:30:28 PM
@jon hahah
Andy Wing 3:30:55 PM
I have a number of friends in the Detroit area, Livonia, Dearborn, Woodhaven, etc.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:32:16 PM
right on! i know how influential the town is but certainly not a lot about what the local scene is like - would love to learn
Matt Sabbath 3:32:24 PM
Michigan has a very punk director, Joel Potrykus. See: Buzzard. Relaxer. 🍿
Matt Sabbath 3:33:18 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 3:41:16 PM
honest to god, though, this would be a desert island record for me.
Colin 3:46:07 PM
fantastic set! 😍 you have made that claim of the best rock song before. I can't dispute that yet
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:14 PM
haha i insist on repeating it in case someone wants to argue with me. ;)
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:18 PM
thanks, Colin!
Matt Sabbath 3:57:04 PM
Johnny Thunders!
Colin 3:57:54 PM

Jon Solomon 3:58:15 PM
This is real cool, Jen.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:59:10 PM
This was my favorite discovery! pointed out to me by former WPRB DJ Ken Katkin
Jon Solomon 3:59:53 PM
Of course! Run time, keep it going while I lumber!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:00:06 PM
be safe out there!
Matt Sabbath 4:00:44 PM
Colin: total opposite of today's auto-tuned, protooled musics!
Colin 4:02:20 PM
matt, pull up an old man rocking chair on my porch so we can rock out and smirk at the kids who have forgotten how.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:02:26 PM
the best flattery, Matt!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:02:41 PM
if everyone goes and tells a friend about WPRB and/or MC5, we'll win
Steve Keane 4:03:26 PM
I'm in a bowling alley right now... But thanks for the Brother Wayne tribute. I heard it in the car.
Matt Sabbath 4:03:40 PM
Colin I'm bringing Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers
Matt Sabbath 4:04:14 PM
Brother Steve in the bowling alley! Punk roke!
David Shortell 4:04:56 PM
I saw David Peel a few times at the Brighton Bar, which he called "the CBGB of New Jersey"!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:05:06 PM
@steve awesome! great prelude to bowling.
Matt Sabbath 4:05:22 PM
David S yessssssssss
Jen Redlights (host) 4:05:23 PM

Matt Sabbath 4:07:53 PM
we are officially skronkin 🎷
David Shortell 4:08:14 PM
I was just listening to an MC5 tribute on that other NJ station. As I commented there, I saw a tribute band called “Future/Now” at the Red Bank Elks Lodge. Their drummer allegedly used a kit that belonged to Dennis Thompson!
Matt Sabbath 4:08:42 PM
Red Banks Elk Lodge!! Awesome
Colin 4:08:55 PM
matt, (my employer looking at my browsing history) was colin really searching Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers, and where to buy them?
Jen Redlights (host) 4:09:01 PM
oh what a riot! there are so many rock threads to pull on this. I've already got a pile of records to investigate thanks to this short stack.
Matt Sabbath 4:09:13 PM
Matt Sabbath 4:09:49 PM
Colin googles "Four Loko original formula" at work
Matt Sabbath 4:11:15 PM
I am imagining this MC5 crowd
Matt Sabbath 4:16:02 PM
BLAZING ROCK N ROLL. dubya prb Prince-tone
Jen Redlights (host) 4:18:39 PM
blazing 🔥
David Shortell 4:21:40 PM
The last time I saw Wayne Kramer was at the Court Tavern over 20 years ago. At one point he tried to get the crowd to sing along, but they were reluctant. Then he repeated his plea and looked me directly in the eyes. What was I gonna do, be a jerk and remain silent? I sang along.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:16 PM
BEAUTIFUL, @david!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:24 PM
hahahah that's a terrific story
Jen Redlights (host) 4:22:37 PM
i really wanted to like his solo records. i tried.
Matt Sabbath 4:23:08 PM
David S nice!!

Jen Redlights (host) 4:35:12 PM
thanks for the hot tips, ken!
David Shortell 4:35:55 PM
"Jack Ketch" is obviously Billy Childish.
Trash Flow 4:36:19 PM
I'm sorry I missed your Wayne Kramer set and just tuned in now, though i will listen to the archive. I was pleased to be greeted by the Sounds of Ohio when I arrived!
David Shortell 4:39:14 PM
I think the last time Billy played in America was when I saw him at Club Warsaw in 2001. It was the Buff Medways, his band named after chickens.
Colin 4:39:25 PM
20 minutes left in the program = 😢, 20 minutes left in the work day = 😍. all about balance
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:23 PM
@trash flow, it was a blast! Glad you were able to pop by!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:44 PM
@david thank you, that might explain why (i'm pretty sure) i have NEVER seen him play in any band?!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:41:08 PM
@colin ha that's a good lean still into the weekend!
Colin 4:42:10 PM
i'm working a half day tomorrow morning so this is like friday lite
Matt Sabbath 4:43:11 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:44:06 PM
Friday Lite is great! @matt, this band couldn't be more unprolific!

Rob from Maryland 🦅 4:49:54 PM
Joan Jett covered "Tossin' and Turnin" iirc
Jon Solomon 4:50:13 PM
