David Shortell 3:02:46 PM
Not the “Fresh Air” host, surely.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:03:30 PM
Definitely not! Though how amazing would that be.
Rob from Maryland 🦅 3:07:09 PM
I wonder what the NPR person thinks of this band
Jen Redlights (host) 3:07:53 PM
I hope she loves it!
Colin 3:08:21 PM
rob, I wouldn't be surprised if the og tg has autographed copies of this record in every room. I mean, who wouldn't.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:08:26 PM
i have not consulted the internets to find out if they have connected, but i'm betting on it
Rob from Maryland 🦅 3:11:22 PM
I hope she loves it too. I haven't yet found anything indicating that they have connected
Jen Redlights (host) 3:13:46 PM
perhaps we should start a letter-writing campaign!
Probably Peter 3:14:10 PM
Terry Gross rocks!
Probably Peter 3:14:22 PM
Running Red Lights: where fresh grooves are produced.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:15:13 PM
Just sharing the fresh grooves masterminded by the others! And Terry Gross does kick ass. Both of them.
David Shortell 3:20:15 PM
“Mouth and knee coordination”? I’ve no inkling what that means.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:21:06 PM
hahaha exactly. Perhaps a knee to the stomach while I'm berating you? Or a knee up to help me hold my large slice of pizza.
Ossy 3:35:51 PM
i like cheese mushroom pizza
Rob from Maryland 🦅 3:37:36 PM
Really 3rds are from Wales according
Jen Redlights (host) 3:38:25 PM
2 welsh in one set! nice!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:38:37 PM
@ossy i like just about any pizza ;)
Rob from Maryland 🦅 3:39:57 PM
While Terry Gross seems not to have connected with the band of the same name, I found that Chery Glaser sat down with the band Cherry Glazzer not long after the band had formed
Zach 3:40:11 PM
Hackey sack for mouth and knee coordination?
Rob from Maryland 🦅 3:40:14 PM
*in Feb. 2014
Jen Redlights (host) 3:40:15 PM
@rob haha!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:40:33 PM
@zach that sounds more reasonable! but hackey sack in the mouth??
Zach 3:41:11 PM
There’s some serious sackers out there.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:41:52 PM
i believe it! i'd probably get smashed in the face trying to play hackey sack, frankly
Ossy 3:44:03 PM
Jen - Especially one intermediate school classmate on mine put stinky mustard on his pizza, to everyone's disgust lol
David Shortell 3:45:16 PM
Beex are still active. Local group The O.C. Rippers went down to Virginia and played with them not long ago.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:45:55 PM
what the heck is stinky mustard??
Jen Redlights (host) 3:46:05 PM
@david that's nuts! was it good??
David Shortell 3:47:15 PM
I wasn’t there to find out. I think O.C. Rippers liked them.
Jen Redlights (host) 3:48:07 PM
sometimes it works out! that's pretty neat
David Shortell 3:49:28 PM
That Sicko album’s name would have made a great Wacky Packages sticker.
Ossy 3:49:33 PM
Jen - LOL, it's just literally mustard, which smells naturally!
Jen Redlights (host) 3:50:09 PM
@ossy hahahah mustard on pizza might indeed smell like an armpit, i'll give you that
Jen Redlights (host) 3:50:18 PM
@david ha!
Ossy 3:54:04 PM
Jen - Haha maybe you and plenty people don't mind the stench, unlike me and I used to like it in the early intermediate school days, especially on pretzels
Ossy 3:55:02 PM
Got some acquaintances that hate the smell of yogurt, tuna, peanut butter, wasabi etc
Jen Redlights (host) 3:56:24 PM
mmmm mustard on pretzels
David Shortell 4:01:27 PM
Gustaf shared members with Sharkmuffin. I saw both groups play at Long Branch’s Whitechapel Projects during the brief period that bar had live music.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:05:30 PM
oh i don't know sharkmuffin!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:06:00 PM
Gustaf live was a BLAST
Jen Redlights (host) 4:06:16 PM
one of my favorite shows of last year or 2022, whenever that was...
David Shortell 4:08:48 PM
I understand Gustaf’s current drummer is the front woman for Francine Moon, another act I managed to see shortly before the 2020 lockdown.
David Shortell 4:10:05 PM
Francie Moon, I meant. (Damned autocorrect.)
Jon Solomon 4:10:58 PM
Ugh, completely screwed up and missed the first hour+ of today's show!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:11:30 PM
@david that's another great tip! i had no idea.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:11:35 PM
@jon !!!!!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:11:38 PM
Jon Solomon 4:12:02 PM
I was sitting here doing nothing like a dummy when I could have been tuned in.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:13:30 PM
well, i am glad you are here now! welcome to the fun
Jon Solomon 4:13:51 PM
Thank you. Hello, all. I should have set an alarm!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:14:26 PM
More fun things still to come
Jen Redlights (host) 4:15:02 PM
in fact...
Colin 4:16:40 PM
oh! I like this one. 🐟
Jen Redlights (host) 4:17:32 PM
me too! and not just the title
Jen Redlights (host) 4:19:01 PM
Fun Things for @jon
Jon Solomon 4:19:12 PM
These are indeed Fun Things.
Jon Solomon 4:23:23 PM
Jen Redlights (host) 4:23:44 PM

Jon Solomon 4:23:46 PM
Having a real "music is the best" moment with this one.
Jen Redlights (host) 4:23:54 PM

Guelo<3 4:29:34 PM

Jen Redlights (host) 4:30:39 PM
@Guelo -- thank you!! Thanks for being here!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:30:49 PM
@TAndy! good morning!
Bud Burroughs 4:31:25 PM
I feel like someone played this song fairly recently, and it was the first time I'd heard it in ages. Still sounds great!
Guelo<3 4:31:55 PM
Good morning TAndy
Ossy 4:32:10 PM
hi Jon!
TAndy 4:32:42 PM
Good day everyone
Jon Solomon 4:34:03 PM
Hello, Ossy. Good to "see" you here!
Jen Redlights (host) 4:35:48 PM
@bud , which one? and great!
Bud Burroughs 4:40:04 PM
This version of Uncontrollable Urge. Or maybe someone played the original and it reminded me of this version :)
Jen Redlights (host) 4:40:46 PM
ahh! we were channeling each other somehow! one of my favorites.
Readie 4:45:19 PM
