Hi Travis in TechniColor ado!
Number 6 5:05:25 PM
@Lizbot- I played a George K piece on my show yesterday, but no one had heard of him.
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:05:57 PM
Sounds like the crazy winds have made their way east. Super windy here this week
Lizbot (host) 5:06:20 PM
@Travis - I've definitely done an up/down show for one of the previous Membership Drives - That's the closest I've ever gotten to this theme!
Lizbot (host) 5:08:27 PM
@Number 6 - Some of his better known stuff was with a band called Infidel?/Castro!, which was more niche noise stuff
Number 6 5:09:03 PM
Is it on bandcamp?
Brian D 5:09:09 PM
Dancin up the wall!
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:09:10 PM
Today marks 8 years with my current employer, or is that really my 2 year anniversary??
Brian D 5:09:42 PM
Lizbot (host) 5:09:56 PM
Hi Brian D! Glad to hear you're dancing up and jumpin' down
Lizbot (host) 5:10:17 PM
@Travis in TechniColor ado - Yeah, it was WAY too windy on the drive up to Princeton from Philly, as evinced by the marks on my windshield - TWICE rocks/pebbles/debris blew into my windshield on this drive!
Travis in TechniColor ado 5:11:00 PM
Oh no! Hopefully no chips or cracks!
Lizbot (host) 5:11:49 PM
@Travis in TechniColor ado - Two marks on the passenger's side that I didn't get to investigate yet!
Lizbot (host) 5:13:28 PM
My neighbor has two very dead very dried out old trees that keep dropping limbs. Last night I heard a very loud thud during the windstorm and thought one had landed on my car. Turns out it was just my trashcan flying into my car. We DID lose power for a while last night!
Lizbot (host) 5:13:48 PM
Oh no! Somebody help Brian! He can't stop dancing!
Lizbot (host) 5:15:58 PM
@Number 6 - I don't honestly know
vildachaya1 5:17:18 PM
Yay The Undertones!

Hi vildachaya1! Glad you're happy to hear The Undertones of Stroke City!

Found it!
vildachaya1 5:18:22 PM
This is a fun show - Jump Jive and Wail -
Brian D 5:19:55 PM
Jumpin at the Woodside! The theme music for Gene Gene The Dancin' Machine on the Gong Show
Lizbot (host) 5:20:03 PM
@vildachaya1 - Thanks! Glad you're digging it! High energy for a weird and windy Leap Day!
vildachaya1 5:20:18 PM
Ok to guess what's coming? Jumping Jack Flash? Jump? Is Lizbot gonna play some Van Halen?
Brian D 5:20:36 PM
Jump in the FI-YAH!
Lizbot (host) 5:20:56 PM
@Brian D - Ah! I gotta watch a clip of that!

Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 5:24:26 PM
I am having a HECK of a week, thanks for the boost with this set!
Lizbot (host) 5:24:49 PM
@Addie - I hope it's not all negative! Happy to help!
Lizbot (host) 5:25:31 PM
@Brian D - 5 o'clock crump pets
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 5:27:52 PM
Not all negative, but all kinda exhausting!
Lizbot (host) 5:27:53 PM
I think the only other time I played this on air in 21 years was when Anita Pointer died in 2022, but I loved this song so much growing up. Some enterprising individual uploaded a video of their corgis jumping in the snow to this song and i commend them
Lizbot (host) 5:28:10 PM
@Addie - I hope this weekend is restorative for you!
Number 6 5:28:38 PM
When my sis was little, she would say, "grump!"
Wes Steenson 5:28:41 PM
Hoping to hear XTC’s Jump (from Mummer) - or maybe Jump Up from the Dr.No soundtrack (it reappeared in License To Kill 27 years later)
Lizbot (host) 5:29:04 PM
@Addie - I had too much caffeine and stress yesterday and got waaay too little sleep last night. Just kinda stared when I tried to sleep a little longer from 6 - 7 am. I am HOPING this weekend restores us both!
Lizbot (host) 5:29:12 PM
Hi Wes Steenson!

Wes Steenson 5:30:38 PM
@Brian D - What’s that I hear?!? It’s Gene Gene The Dancing Machine!!!
Lizbot (host) 5:31:26 PM
@Number 6 - I love the word "grump"! I used it as a kid and it's still in my regular vocabulary, especially when my teen is being a grump!
Number 6 5:32:19 PM
There's a group named "grum-pe".
Wes Steenson 5:32:35 PM
Life Begins At The Hop! Close Enough! Thanx for the XTC!
Number 6 5:33:39 PM
Lizbot (host) 5:33:54 PM
@Wes Steenson - I'll see what I can do! Might fit it in. You know I'm aleways down for more XTC! I have that Dr. No soundtrack on vinyl at home
Lizbot (host) 5:35:29 PM
@Number 6 - nice! There was a potato chip brand in Philly in the 90s (and maybe still, but I haveb't seen it in a long time) called Chumpies!
Lizbot (host) 5:35:48 PM
@Wes Steenson - Happy to serve up the XTC on the airwaves!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:36:25 PM
@Lizbot, are you taking requests? Also, I saw a catbird at sunset on Sunday when I was looking for displaying American Woodcocks
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:36:42 PM
@Lizbot, the catbird told me to say hi
Lizbot (host) 5:37:17 PM
@Rob from Maryland 🦅 - Sure! I might not fit them in, but I'll see what I can do
Lizbot (host) 5:38:08 PM
@Rob from Maryland 🦅 - oh boy, catbird season is almost upon us!
Lizbot (host) 5:40:30 PM
I am just picturing a spritely 8-bit video gane character hopping through levels to this song
Lizbot (host) 5:42:30 PM
the beginning of the repeating riff of this Fingerprintz song reminds me of the Sesame Street theme song!
George Korein 5:43:56 PM

Space Cowboy 5:44:20 PM

Hi Space Cowboy! Thanks! This czech group is now underwater
joe 5:47:22 PM
This set has been total bonkers. Perfect for a not real day like 2/29.
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:47:45 PM
@Lizbot, I was thinking of Altered Images "Jump Jump", if you can fit it in (thanks if you can, no worries if you can't)
Wes Steenson 5:47:47 PM
You remembered The Martian Hop! 👽🛸
Lizbot (host) 5:48:04 PM
@joe - haha, yeah it's getting odd in this portion of the program! The crazy wind and not-quite-yet-spring weather is doing things to my head
Rob from Maryland 🦅 5:48:26 PM
@Lizbot, that catbird has spent the winter here. The actual migrants won't be back for another 6 or 8 weeks
Lizbot (host) 5:49:13 PM
@Wes Steenson - HOW could I ever forget the life-changing dispatch, the important news from space?! Spread the good word: The martians will hold a dance for all the human race!
George Korein 5:52:07 PM

Lizbot (host) 5:53:17 PM
@george korein - I read an interview with Crash Course In Science band members saying they bonded over, amongst other things, seeing Sparks at Tower Theater in college!
Lizbot (host) 5:55:21 PM
Welcome to Leap Time
George Korein 5:57:03 PM
Ooh cool, Sparks of inspiration!
Lizbot (host) 5:58:24 PM
@George Korein - Yes! THey keep mentioning meeting at art school in Philly, and I wonder if it was U.Arts, which at that point was probably, what? Philadelphia College of Art probably
Wes Steenson 6:05:07 PM
For future reference, if we’re still here in 4 years- Van Dyke Parks’ Jump, the overture from his never-produced musical of the same name. Released as an album in 1984.
Richard from Rocky Hill 6:12:44 PM
@ Lizbot (host) Thanks for playing Abbie from Mars. I hope WPRB will have an Alumni Host weekend (maybe over Reunions?) and she'll be one of the featured returnees.

Lizbot (host) 6:15:04 PM
@Wes Steenson - I WILL add it to my list of future potential Leap Day songs, though!
Lizbot (host) 6:16:05 PM
@Richard from Rocky Hill - THat would be really nice! Sometimes PRB alum sub for a show, especially when in town for reunions. Abbie's been playing a lot of live shows in NYC
Travis in TechniColor ado 6:16:16 PM
Looks like a Tuesday in 2028. Maybe you can fill in for Wilbo
Lizbot (host) 6:19:22 PM
@Travis in TechniColor ado - ah! Yeah, I figured it wouldnt be a thursday again but haven't had a moment to check!
Lizbot (host) 6:20:01 PM

Richard from Rocky Hill 6:42:55 PM
@ Lizbot (host) Thanks for the info on PRB alum subs and update on Abbie from Mars. She did some excellent senior year work for the Historical Society of Princeton and used some of my Princeton picture histories for Arcadia Publishing as references.

@Lizbot- I've been to Hamburg, PA, but that's about it.
Brian D 6:49:04 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:49:34 PM
@Brian D - haha, yeah, you GOTTA stir the sauce FIRST though! (AKA Gravy to South Philadelphians)
Lizbot (host) 6:50:17 PM
@Travis in TechniColor ado - Yeah, better than a chair lift! Those things'll straight drop you 50 feet!
Brian D 6:50:44 PM
from stirred all day sauce & real pasta to egg noodles and ketchup... all because of a lucky hat
Brian D 6:51:17 PM
Herbie Flowers session bass ace on the detuned in progress bass bombs. Great line on this
Lizbot (host) 6:51:24 PM
@TAndy - Excellent. I believe chiptune will always tap into pleasure centers in my brain due to hundreds happy hours of childhood Atari and NES playing
Brian D 6:52:01 PM
Also the session bass player that laid down 2 intertwining bass tracks (acoustic double bass and electric) on Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side"
Lizbot (host) 6:52:33 PM
@Richard from Rocky Hill - Nice! Yeah I remember she was a history major, and a mean tapdancer to boot! She got me to dance a bit in the aisles of Princeton Garden Theater when WPRB screened Stop Making Sense there a bunch of years ago!
Carlos Ramone. 6:53:09 PM

@Number 6 - I am not familiar with Hamburg, PA, but I'm also completely unsurprised to find out about another town in Pennsylvania named for a German city
Lizbot (host) 6:53:48 PM
Hi Carlos Ramone.!

Lizbot (host) 6:59:23 PM
@Roffle - oh, I actually have a hoagie waiting for me in the fridge back in Philly, but alas, I won't reach it until about 9:45
Brian D 7:00:23 PM
Just made some homemade chicken soup. My wife is a little under the weather. Turned out great. Helped that we cooked a chicken yest and had some leftover broth and a jar of chicken bone broth too.
Roffle 7:00:49 PM
Talk about driving over for a hoagie adventures!
Roffle 7:01:11 PM
That is the roundabout way for sure.
Brian D 7:01:36 PM
Drive over your hoagie with hot wheels. Panini campin style
Roffle 7:01:52 PM
That sounds excellent Brian!
Lizbot (host) 7:01:56 PM
@Brian D - mmm. broth.... I think I have some moldy pretzels in my bag
Lizbot (host) 7:02:06 PM
Damn, love this flute
Roffle 7:02:07 PM
Hope she is feeling better.
Brian D 7:02:47 PM
Moldy pretzels may help the immune... or hurt it. Roll dem dice
Brian D 7:03:01 PM
Roffle 7:03:02 PM
Psychedelic pretzels.
Lizbot (host) 7:03:03 PM
@Roffle - I bought that hoagie yesterday and then wasn't hungry for it. Now I yearn for its soggy roll
Lizbot (host) 7:03:41 PM
@Roffle - I'll take any old pretzel, psychedelic or not. But maybe not Wawa pretzels...They've gotten worse recently!
Number 6 7:04:14 PM
ACME market has some decent hoagies.
Brian D 7:04:18 PM

I so love letting the uneaten half of my hoagie age into it's fullness.
Lizbot (host) 7:04:52 PM
@Brian D - Look, it was perhaps the mold on an unassuming pretzel that led to the discovery of penicillin! All Hail the mighty pretzel (AND the pretzels I imagine I will be chomping in Germany this summer!)
Lizbot (host) 7:05:37 PM
@Number 6 - I noticed that while down the shore a few years back! The LBI Acme sells theirs half off from 10-11!

@Brian D - mmmm, damn, I love spaetzel! My mom and grandmom made that, and I buy it at the german store in Peddler's Village, but they also have it at Wegman's and I think Aldi too.
Roffle 7:10:02 PM
Gonne go out on a limb a guess you got the LSD molecule mold reference. Quik rail to places where they sell mushroom products from Germany. lol
Lizbot (host) 7:10:10 PM
@Brian D - Pretzels n' Spaetzel carb-o-matic festival. That'll be my summer
Wes Steenson 7:10:58 PM
The enigma that is Buckethead…
Lizbot (host) 7:11:13 PM
@Roffle - Oh I fully expect to mind all manner of mushroom products on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg!
Roffle 7:11:23 PM
carb-o-matic + cheesey pretzels. Gotta have fat AND cheese.
Lizbot (host) 7:11:42 PM
@Wes Steenson - A mystery wrapped in a bucket
Larry Tenders 7:11:50 PM
Great show as always, especially love the theme tonight as I had my first flower seed germinate here in zone 7b - the "Johny Jump Up" variety.
Wes Steenson 7:12:32 PM
@Lizbot - A KFC bucket no less.
Lizbot (host) 7:12:50 PM
Hi Larry Tenders! I'm glad you're enjoying it! Great seed variety name!
Lizbot (host) 7:13:17 PM
@Wes Steenson - I only saw him once- at the North Star Bar in Fairmount about 20 years ago
Lizbot (host) 7:13:31 PM
@Wes Steenson - He never removed the bucket
Roffle 7:13:47 PM
Potting a KFC bucket to grow chickens? What a world it is becoming.

@Wes Steenson - A soggy roll > haggis. A pile of mold > haggis!
Wes Steenson 7:16:00 PM
Wow, that was Sandy Denny? I didn’t recognize her voice in that context.
Brian D 7:16:00 PM
Have a Kölsch in Köln for me! mmmm ... Relative of mine used to make the homemade spaetzle. Wet fresh pasta dough on a ceramic slab cutting board like thing. Then you slice little worms of pasta right into the boil. mmmm
Lizbot (host) 7:16:21 PM
@Carlos Ramone. - Oh well, I am no fan of the hot dog anyway, but I know a lot of ppl love ballpark franks. Stingy of the owners or whoever made that call!
Lizbot (host) 7:16:34 PM
@Wes - Yup!
Roffle 7:16:59 PM
My girlfriend is a genetic engineer, I am not crazy. Thing are happening, but unless you read technical publications, you would never know.
Lizbot (host) 7:17:08 PM
@Brian D - Like playdough only tastier! (but about as salty)
Brian D 7:17:15 PM
I love those shiny Swiss cheese "holey" crackers they have at Aldi. Great snack food that is not found all that often
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:17:32 PM
This is The Clean!? Cool. It almost sounds like Neu!
Roffle 7:18:01 PM
Sandy Denny has that super sweet voice.
Lizbot (host) 7:18:20 PM
@Rob from Maryland 🦅 - Yeah! Late-career Clean. I remember when this Mister Pop album came out and was new in studio. I played it a bunch in '09!
Brian D 7:18:56 PM
Neu Clean Alt Clean. Nouveau clean. Proto retro neo post clean.
Lizbot (host) 7:19:06 PM
@Roffle - Cheesy pretzels....dammit, drooling
Roffle 7:19:40 PM
Clean thinking there Brian!
Lizbot (host) 7:19:46 PM
@Brian D - My mom is a disciple of Aldi. She is constantly telling me of her finds there!
Brian D 7:19:51 PM
I miss reading the fake genres that Lupica has on his setlist page header. But the time machine calendar rewind button can help
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:20:02 PM
@Lizbot, it sounds so so much like Neu's "Hallo Gallo". I'm used to The Clean doing "Beatnik" and the like
Brian D 7:20:53 PM
Jon Solomon airing of Hallo Gallo (turn left mix) was a great highlight of past few years
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:20:57 PM
@Brian D, you are on to something with your Clean analysis
Lizbot (host) 7:21:27 PM
This Arthur Russell "Hop On Down" song makes me remember tryna play simple tunes on my first push-button landline phone (My parents held out and kept their rotaries for a loooong time. STILL have one in their 2nd fl)
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:21:36 PM
@Brian D, I remember that mix of Hallow Gallo. That was fun
Rob from Maryland 🦅 7:22:31 PM
@Lizbot, that is so cool that your parents still have a rotary dial. I wish I had bought one instead of leasing it from the phone company
Lizbot (host) 7:22:41 PM
@Roffle - Sandy Denny's voice is great, and I managed to hear it on my parents' records before hearing it on Zep's Battle of Evermore
Roffle 7:23:21 PM
I love Aldi's Lizbot! It's so whatever. And sometime amazing. I get super cheap instant coffee. I find coffee medicinal though and I'm not hunting for amazing flavors. I have things to easy mitigate taste issues.
Brian D 7:23:44 PM
Oh yeah Arthur Russell is a great memory of last few years on WPRB too. There's a great live jazzy piece with his plucked electric cello. A recent release of an old set I think.
Brian D 7:23:56 PM
Brian D 7:24:25 PM
Found it.. 24 to 24 Music Live at the Kitchen
Lizbot (host) 7:25:11 PM
@Brian D - I gotta spruce up my page!
Roffle 7:25:56 PM
I was a big Fairport Convention fan before I knew she was on that Zeppelin track. So good were her vocals, they stand alone for me.
Lizbot (host) 7:26:11 PM
@Rob from Maryland 🦅 - yeah, I wouldn't have expected The Clean, a band I love and saw live twice, to suddenly replace a Neu-esque track in the late 2000s!
Brian D 7:26:31 PM
My parents had rotary phones until about 1989. And then 1 touch tone phone. But... they maintained the rotary dialing service w/phone co (why should we upgrade... yada yada people born during depression talk etc). So... when you touched the buttons on the new fangled touch tone phone it just clicked and clicked (really long for 7, 8, 9 haha). And then finally your call went through.
Lizbot (host) 7:26:55 PM
I MISS Painting with John (Lurie)! I WISH HBO greenlighted another season!
Lizbot (host) 7:27:00 PM
Roffle 7:28:00 PM
And then there was something Red.
Brian D 7:28:01 PM
Had to walk over to grandparents' house to use their touch tone phone to do college scheduling on the univ service that actually required the tones to work. Figures the people born in the 19 teens upgraded ha
Lizbot (host) 7:29:10 PM
We're not in the "one more day" extra day portion of tonight's program, although i hope it doesnt turn into a red nightmare
Wes Steenson 7:29:15 PM
@BrianD I recall the early transitional touch tone phones had a switch on them for use on a rotary line. It would send the pulses rather than the tones. (I am old)
Lizbot (host) 7:29:51 PM
I forget what is being used here for that funny percussive sound. Sounds like a wet flapping piece of thin metal
Brian D 7:30:05 PM
Great memories seeing the (last?) live roar of the Crim hounds in summer 2021 up in Jerz...
Brian D 7:30:12 PM
Brian D 7:30:19 PM
Tony has some great pics from that show!
Lizbot (host) 7:30:35 PM
@Brian D - Proto retro neo post clean. > dirty
Roffle 7:31:19 PM
My Red Nightmare is currently going on in Washington DC, but whatever. Just need to ever be diligent is the same refrain.
Brian D 7:32:18 PM
Ya the perc sound is a little bit like Children o the Grave Sabbath overdubs
Brian D 7:32:29 PM
metal sheet sound
Wes Steenson 7:32:59 PM
@Roffle - another Fairport fan here. I used to think their medleys of traditional tunes were just instruments that they wrote. Back then they didn’t list the names of the individual tunes on the record jacket.
Lizbot (host) 7:33:12 PM
@Rob from Maryland 🦅 - The rotary phone on their nightstand they've had since they moved into their house in 1970, and possibly before when they were in various apartments. That thing is indestructible! Heavy as hell. They really didn't want to replace the 2nd rotary, which was the downstairs phone, but finally gave in to modern technology in the 90s and got a corded push-button (or whatever those were called!) and that thing didn't last more than a few years
Lizbot (host) 7:33:54 PM
@Rob from Maryland 🦅 - Took WAY too long to dial on rotaries to win radio on-air giveaway contests, tthough! Something that was of mucjh concern to me at the time!
Roffle 7:34:08 PM
Percussion in Crimson has ALWAYS been rather prominent to this day with 3 drummers as a regular thing.
George Korein 7:35:35 PM
The hunt for red February
Wes Steenson 7:35:51 PM
@Lizbot - my parents had the same. Old cast black Bakelite rotary phone.
Lizbot (host) 7:36:22 PM
@Roffle - Oh yeah, I've seen those drummers in action up close! And I love the squelching mud stomp sounds Jamie Muir makes on "Easy Money"
George Korein 7:37:00 PM
Red Nightmare drum breaks for rapping about Lizbot’s nefarious crimson-bellied conure
Brian D 7:37:04 PM
Yep. Parents had the black Princess phone upstairs. Dull plastic on some parts and metal on some parts. EXTREMELY deadly heavy device. And the beige wall phone downstairs.
Lizbot (host) 7:37:15 PM
@Roffle - Jamie Muir: yet another amazing Crimson musician who came and went looong ago! He moved into a Buddhist center for a while, apparently
Roffle 7:37:44 PM
@Wes Steenson, those Traditionals were what made them so solid on the music map. I just loved so much of it. And for Christ's sake Tam Lin is beyond words, as redundant as it is. It's still just so good.
George Korein 7:38:32 PM
I heard the metal sound is a broken cymbal.
George Korein 7:38:56 PM
I’ve heard broken cymbals stacked for that effect
Lizbot (host) 7:39:09 PM
@George Korein - Hey, Korein, leave that bird alone! He's just a Crimson conure, he's no one's red nightmare!
Brian D 7:39:37 PM
Liege and Lief lists the medley tunes albeit in very small print
Lizbot (host) 7:40:52 PM
@Wes Steenson - I adore the creamy candy-colored look of bakelite. I have a butterscotch bakelite pendant from the 30s I found in my early 20s in a thrift store off South Street and it's in the shape of a "P" that happens to look a bit like the Phillies logo
Brian D 7:40:54 PM
And yer bird can swing broken symbols
Lizbot (host) 7:41:02 PM
shoals of herring bubbling in the background
Brian D 7:41:20 PM
Fishy fishy fishy fish! (who'd follow me wherever I would gooooo)
Lizbot (host) 7:41:22 PM
"wild and wasteful ocean" is such a great MacColl line
George Korein 7:42:53 PM
Your bird can fling flang, that’s why I sling slang
Lizbot (host) 7:42:57 PM
@Brian D - Fishy fish Monty P meet Barnes & BArnes' the up, YUM
George Korein 7:43:11 PM
I meant fling fang
Roffle 7:43:36 PM
I think breaking a symbol is definitely a technique that is not so much taught at Julliard. But Julliard does not make music per say. They just have an opinion on it. And I spent many, many hours there while my girlfriend at the time toiled in classes. lol;
Brian D 7:44:07 PM
Your bird can flanger. My bird can chorus. But their bird can orange script logo phaser .
Lizbot (host) 7:44:24 PM
@George Korein - I prefer flinging flang
George Korein 7:45:00 PM
I once saw someone wearing a shirt that said “Julliard. You think you know, but you have no idea.”
Lizbot (host) 7:45:04 PM
@George Korein - you might be a flim-flam man if you besmirch my bird when he's just chilling on his perch
Lizbot (host) 7:45:43 PM
@George Korein - Flinging fang > flimming flam
George Korein 7:45:45 PM
One of the most annoying shirts I’ve ever seen
Brian D 7:45:55 PM
Your box can stomp. Your tube can screamer. Your phantom can wah.
George Korein 7:46:51 PM
Your pi can muff
Brian D 7:47:24 PM
Germanium chips dipped in salsa riddims.
George Korein 7:47:43 PM
I shall ever besmirch the scoundrel on his perch
Lizbot (host) 7:48:19 PM
@Roffle - Julliard produced The Amazing Kat, who I used to play on this program and haven't in many years, come to think of it..!
Brian D 7:48:56 PM
Squelch the weasel. Besmirch the perch. Harken to the lark.
Roffle 7:49:08 PM
@George, I've seen the recitals. I used to play the stage grand piano while they cleaned Paul Hall. I mean, good luck getting into a practice room there any day of the week. I loved gaming the system there. LOL
George Korein 7:49:16 PM
Squelch the whelp
Brian D 7:49:54 PM
Whelks in yolks. Sprites in whites.
Brian D 7:50:36 PM
Coquilles sans Jack. Krills with Jill

It all makes sense! IT was all leading to that George. nice one!
Lizbot (host) 7:51:27 PM
Tell a Fripp Bird anything you want to, It WILL answer, it can talk
George Korein 7:51:52 PM
The whelplings of today are the squelchers of tomorrow
George Korein 7:52:19 PM
It will answer “ooh hee hoo”
Brian D 7:52:32 PM
Frippered, Kippered and slightly Whetstoned.
George Korein 7:52:37 PM
Then bite you
Lizbot (host) 7:52:40 PM
@Brian D - Bersmirching the perch is ridic! And keep that lark's tongue in aspic!
Brian D 7:52:53 PM
Bite Chew.

Thank you kindly Brian D

@Brian D - my bird deftly snatches kippers with his talon grippers. he has talents

Great stuff tonight Lizbot! Thanks! Usual and weirdly usual is rather cool. Have a great weekend!
Brian D 7:54:09 PM
Harken to the barkin of the dog fox.
George Korein 7:54:39 PM
I don’t know if Number 6 is still here but thanks #6!

I see Sparks played the Tower in 1976 but still searching for later years there...
