An hour of something, then an hour of something else.

The River Nile:

because it's the fifth one


Here's a riddle, the first song of each section of this set (around the top of the hour) have something in common. Can you guess what it is?

we're back
TAndy 3:01:59 PM
What up
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 3:02:58 PM
😺 did I hear “fusion”?
dj Abe (host) 3:03:23 PM
What's Up TAndy
dj Abe (host) 3:04:13 PM
Hey Dave. That you did! tail end of the show today will be some fusion songs I am enthused by
TAndy 3:04:27 PM
Good afternoon, Sirs.
TAndy 3:04:50 PM
Gonna be driving back to CNJ from King of Prussia. Dan's show ruled. This show rules. Vibes are immaculate. Cruise time.
dj Abe (host) 3:10:23 PM
Definitely some good cruising stuff. May you cross state lines safely
iamthelabhras 3:11:59 PM
Suitably random question, but does anyone know when WPRB's 2019 & 2020 spring, summer, & fall seasons started & ended?
iamthelabhras 3:12:36 PM
I've been looking at WPRB's social feeds but it's not always clear whether the date a broadcast calendar was shared coincides with the start of a new broadcasting season.
dj Abe (host) 3:16:14 PM
yeah good question, 2019-20 might've been weird because of the pandemic.
iamthelabhras 3:17:35 PM
I know it's a weird question but I'm trying to organize my archived WPRB stuff via season and it's getting a little tricky once I hit 2020 & earlier.
dj Abe (host) 3:18:08 PM
I would try going to https://playlists.wprb.com/WPRB/calendar, setting the time span to month and hitting the back button till the programming differs wildly from one week to another
iamthelabhras 3:20:12 PM
That kind of sort of works, but anything prior to August 2020 is a little ... spotty.
dj Abe (host) 3:21:11 PM
you could try sending an email to the listener services director too
iamthelabhras 3:21:58 PM
I think that might be the best way to go. Or I might just ask Jon Solomon when I next see him in the chat.
dj Abe (host) 3:27:18 PM
that would definitely work
Rob F 3:31:58 PM
Don't know about the riddle, but music's been good!
dj Abe (host) 3:36:23 PM
appreciate it Rob. The song to give u enough information for the riddle hasn't come up yet. I'll say somethin on mic when it does.
Matthew Robinson 3:38:41 PM
Love all these hip hop samples!! Great songs
dj Abe (host) 3:39:02 PM
Hey Matthew! I think you already solved the riddle haha.
Matthew Robinson 3:41:41 PM
Whoopsieeee hehe this one is a classic madlib one, the metal fingers one you started on.. legendary!
dj Abe (host) 3:45:51 PM
Thank ya thank ya
dj Abe (host) 3:52:08 PM
man I hate when that happens
Dá Bəng Gôu 3:52:43 PM
Glitch.
dj Abe (host) 3:52:58 PM
I wish I could shrink myself to accomodate the studio
Rob F 4:02:08 PM
"The Art of Easing" contains a sample from "Black & Blues"
dj Abe (host) 4:02:40 PM
ding ding ding!!! It's the bassline.
Rob F 4:07:17 PM
Loving these music selections
dj Abe (host) 4:09:06 PM
thank ya Rob. It is much appreciated.
Jon Solomon 4:12:28 PM
Stuck on hold with tech support chat, but at least the music is good.
Jon Solomon 4:12:37 PM
(Your show, not hold music.)
DubNP 4:13:45 PM
Can’t copy me. 🔥
dj Abe (host) 4:16:29 PM
Hey Jon! I'll be bringing that note to you soon..
dj Abe (host) 4:16:41 PM
hey DubNP!
iamthelabhras 4:31:30 PM
Speak of the Solomon and he appears!
iamthelabhras 4:32:26 PM
Jon ... if you're still with us ... I'm trying to ascertain which dates WPRB's 2019 & 2020 spring, fall, & summer broadcast schedules started for my records. I'm trying to organize all my archived WPRB stuff by broadcast season & it's proving a little challenging once I hit 2020 or earlier.
Rob F 4:34:52 PM
That Herbie Hancock was nice
Rob F 4:35:00 PM
Such a great vibe this afternoon!
dj Abe (host) 4:37:36 PM
Thank you Rob!
