I hear you have the fuzzy licks & desert riffs.
Captain Ahab (host) 10:08:02 AM

Travis in TechniColor ado 10:20:42 AM
Fuzzy Monday to all!
Jason 10:21:46 AM
mmmm Cheezit.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:22:16 AM
Captain Ahab (host) 10:23:18 AM
Matt you missed some spicy news that I only announced after the switch to Monday mornings
Captain Ahab (host) 10:23:31 AM
I got a tenure track job!
Captain Ahab (host) 10:23:40 AM

Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:25:09 AM
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:25:30 AM
Did I not tell you? 😉
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:26:00 AM
You'll be great.

Does Wesleyan still have a strong ethnomusicology department? Maybe your Anatolian Rock research can find some cross discipline home
Jason 10:29:26 AM
organ solo
Captain Ahab (host) 10:29:34 AM

Travis in TechniColor ado 10:38:31 AM
Congrats again Captain! Will this move affect your show time?
Dale Hazelton 10:38:56 AM
hey now. that was very electric funeral by sabbath.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:39:31 AM
Good point Dale!
Travis in TechniColor ado 10:39:37 AM
Ha, someone just walked by my office and made a Sabbath comparison
Captain Ahab (host) 10:40:52 AM
hey Travis, the sad truth is I suspect my time with WPRB will conclude soon, as more new DJs join WPRB I think remote djs like myself with other options for shows (WESU at Wesleyan) should probably step back and make room
Dale Hazelton 10:41:06 AM
...or was it faeries wear boots. long time since i listened to that. the jazz freakout sounded similar.
Travis in TechniColor ado 10:42:10 AM
Aww, we will have to tune in to WESU then.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:42:19 AM
Either one Dale, I heard it too
Captain Ahab (host) 10:42:20 AM
Captain Ahab (host) 10:43:13 AM
I haven't actually written to WESU yet lol so maye I should double check it's possible to join as a prof before I throw in the towel at wprb
Captain Ahab (host) 10:43:19 AM
Dale Hazelton 10:44:17 AM
exciting new adventures captain ahab. congrats.
Travis in TechniColor ado 10:44:25 AM

Travis in TechniColor ado 10:45:51 AM
Ha, I even read that in my head with an Ozzy voice
TAndy 10:46:20 AM
I read my last message out loud and for some reason my pirate voice has a slight Scarface accent to it
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:46:31 AM
No towels thrown indeed. Black flag flies. We shall never surrendah. (Aces High plays)
Travis in TechniColor ado 10:47:58 AM

Jason 10:55:00 AM
I think DC should be broadcast on WPRB and WESU simultaneously. Make it happen, Captain.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 10:55:07 AM

Captain Ahab (host) 11:04:30 AM

Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:27:18 AM
Tandy I was just listenin to Crom, san diegbro powerviolence, who were playing that couch incident gig
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:27:58 AM
Tandy you can go goblin on Rosasolis' show
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:29:09 AM
There needs to be a documentary about the convo that preceded said couch tossing into the pit
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:31:27 AM
Haunted! Reminds me of Made Out of Babies a lil
g jackson 11:31:46 AM
That Quill song you played a while back. Had to check the playlist to see if it was a Hellacopters tune I'd never heard before. Then I heard you say they were Swedish and had been around since '92. Don't know how I didn't know of them but I didn't. I absolutely love the Hellacopters. They have to at least from the same scene.
TAndy 11:33:30 AM
There needs to be a documentary on Xyloprawn.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:33:53 AM
G jackson the Gothenburg scene maybe? G'burg seems like stoner rock incubator
Captain Ahab (host) 11:34:24 AM
g jackson nice! I was not familiar with the hellacopters, new band to check out
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:34:25 AM
Captain Ahab (host) 11:34:52 AM
matt those barbers man, do not mess with them
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:35:22 AM
G jackson, Ahab is yer source for swede stoner rock. She is an honorary swede.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:36:59 AM
Ahab the Turk barbers dont play. Brusque like N J if ya get outta line. But then they do an awesome massage.

Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:47:07 AM
Dumpster seafrood is just fine. For your health.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:47:49 AM
I didnt like Brule at first but it grew on me.
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:48:49 AM
It's okay to say ass on air as long as nothing goes into or out of the rangus.
TAndy 11:49:09 AM
I always liked him. I remember in high school we watched Gangs of New York. John's character showed up and the guy next to me immediately said "Oh shit Steve Brule"
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:50:05 AM
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:50:35 AM
He is so good in Boogie Nights 🕺
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:52:14 AM

Epic show, Captain.
Travis in TechniColor ado 11:54:50 AM
Great show Cap'n ! Tanks!
Dan Ruccia 11:55:31 AM
Trepanning, I'm pretty sure has something to do with putting holes in your skull to relieve pressure on the brain
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:55:32 AM
Trepanation is gnarly as Spicoli says
Matt Psychic Lemon Sabbath 11:56:16 AM
Jesus Lizard has a song about trepanation, naturally
g jackson 11:56:53 AM
Lord, I'm terrible in the chat I can't check back to reply to my original question but thank you for that. I'm better off not even logging in when I'm at work but I'm listening great show.
Captain Ahab (host) 11:57:33 AM
