Hi Brian, hi Rob!

That weird grey out wait... security lag for comments happening a lot on the ol chatski lately
Alan Pasnyk 8:10:46 PM
Hi Dana K! aka "Earthquake Dodger"
Richard Lyons 8:11:01 PM
Dana K (host) 8:11:43 PM
Afraid so, Brian. Trying to keep up as quickly as I can.
Dana K (host) 8:11:48 PM
Hi Alan and Richard!
Alan Pasnyk 8:15:04 PM
Earthquake in itself not as dangerous as all that shi* that earthquake makes fall on you! Native Americans in TP, earthquake = no big deal!
Steve Keane 8:23:35 PM
How's it going, Comrade Workers?
Alan Pasnyk 8:25:28 PM
Hi Steve! Nice Bladerunner pin..
Steve Keane 8:26:57 PM
I've been feeling like a replicant lately.
Dana K (host) 8:29:02 PM
do you see attack ships on fire off the shoulder of orion?
Steve Keane 8:32:11 PM
It's all I ever see. It haunts me.
TAndy 8:34:25 PM
I've seen WPRB Beams fired at my shoulder
TAndy 8:34:55 PM
Missed opportunity for me to just say WPRBeams
Steve Keane 8:42:56 PM
Who's this? I've been listening to Japanese rock a lot lately.
Dana K (host) 8:44:26 PM
https://www.maximumrocknroll.com/band/gomess/ All I can really find about them. Tim Yo didn't like them.
Steve Keane 8:46:22 PM
I'm going to see if I can add them to my stupidly long playlist of Japanese rock and Godzilla sound effects.
Ossy 8:49:22 PM
Evening Dana Bash Front!
Dana K (host) 8:49:37 PM
Hi Ossy!
Dana K (host) 8:49:49 PM
Steve, add Flipper's Guitar to your list. Though they're jangle pop, not rock
Alan Pasnyk 8:51:25 PM
Long Live jangle Pop!
Dana K (host) 8:55:09 PM
That's right
Steve Keane 8:56:31 PM
Gah. Now I have to look that up. Thanks for making me do a thing, Dana. Jeez
Dana K (host) 8:57:31 PM
Or you can just listen to SHONEN KNIFE
Steve Keane 8:58:40 PM
Please. They were the first band on the list. Along with Takeshi Terauchi, the Dick Dale of Japan.
Steve Keane 9:00:10 PM
And Otoboke Beaver, who Yoni introduced me to. Where is he?
Richard Lyons 9:00:23 PM
sounding great! loved the Magick Heads! BTW Merge has The Clean's discography at name your price today :)
Richard Lyons 9:06:13 PM
Nice! Subbin!
Alan Pasnyk 9:07:08 PM
Sunday, scrambled eggs and Dana K.
Alan Pasnyk 9:07:36 PM
...and BIG KUDOS to DJ McSweden!
Dana K (host) 9:07:50 PM
I'll play some egg songs for you Alan
yoni from kdu 9:07:52 PM
Greetings from the West Palm Beach airport, the rockingest airport in Florida as of right now!
Alan Pasnyk 9:08:05 PM
:) !!!!
Steve Keane 9:08:06 PM
DJ Mick Sweden has a cool show and sounds like a solid human being.
Steve Keane 9:08:32 PM
Dana K (host) 9:09:08 PM
Just in time for WEEN
yoni from kdu 9:10:59 PM
I think this is the second time I've ever listened to Ween. One of their more glam rock songs was in the rotation at Satellite. I like this more.
Dana K (host) 9:11:39 PM
You listened to Ween every day you lived with him
yoni from kdu 9:11:52 PM
Dana K (host) 9:12:14 PM
I like Ween. I found a mix on YouTube that was called "Easy Listening Ween" that I really liked. Unfortunately lawn seats at the Mann all sold out
yoni from kdu 9:12:23 PM
So nice of someone to record a cover specifically for you!
Richard Lyons 9:16:10 PM
The Bats! hell yeah!
Steve Keane 9:19:11 PM
I could never get into Ween. They always seemed to me to be one of those bands in supposed to like because I like DEVO. Like Sparks. I like David Kendrick from hanging out with him at DEVOtional but I could never get into them, either.
yoni from kdu 9:20:11 PM
This rules
Dana K (host) 9:22:23 PM
Ween and Sparks are both great. That being said, I understand that there is a commonly accepted list of bands you must like if you like DEVO
Dana K (host) 9:22:50 PM
But Ween play in a lot of different styles. So do Sparks, actually. But you do have to get past Russell's voice.
Steve Keane 9:24:09 PM
I had a guy at work who was always surprised I didn't absolutely LOVE Elvis Costello even after I told him I'm one of the metalheads into Devo. Gah
Dana K (host) 9:25:07 PM
Steve you keep breaking my heart
Dana K (host) 9:25:12 PM
I love Elvis Costello too
Steve Keane 9:25:16 PM
Russell's voice is the issue. And I'm a Zeppelin fan (I'm older than God). I can't stand Plant's voice. But anyway
Steve Keane 9:25:29 PM
I sorry
Steve Keane 9:25:58 PM
Look, of Sparks was more like Slayer I'd totally be into them
Steve Keane 9:26:26 PM
Drinking. Sorry about the typos. Rough week
Alan Pasnyk 9:26:45 PM
Loved the "Life"
Roffle 9:26:50 PM
That song was good on a bunch of levels.
Colin 9:30:04 PM
(*explodes into the room) Did somebody say ween?
Dana K (host) 9:30:46 PM
Dana K (host) 9:31:17 PM
I encourage drinking during my show. Unless you are underage or driving.
Dana K (host) 9:31:23 PM
I am drinking a Dr. Pepper
Colin 9:31:49 PM
lol, steve, yourer good. I make many a typo
yoni from kdu 9:31:55 PM
Doc Pep
Steve Keane 9:33:10 PM
Colin, hdimci saukh koydn
Colin 9:34:34 PM
also, steve, cheers, it's been a week for me as well.
Steve Keane 9:35:55 PM
I'm sorry Colin. The whole world is upside down and inside out right now.
jimbooooooo 9:39:53 PM
Just in time for P A R S N I P
Dana K (host) 9:40:18 PM
This is SO good
Dana K (host) 9:40:37 PM
I hope they come back to the US. When I saw them at Jerry's it was great. All the WPRB DJs were there.
jimbooooooo 9:40:55 PM
Alan Pasnyk 9:41:24 PM
Parsnip = 🧡💛💚
yoni from kdu 9:44:10 PM
Love those Gorkys!
Dana K (host) 9:44:41 PM
I love a Welsh band
Alan Pasnyk 9:48:11 PM
Luffin' this show...and we still have more than an hour to go Yayyy!
Dana K (host) 9:48:30 PM
Let's goooo
Colin 10:00:33 PM
3rd hour!!!
Colin 10:01:43 PM
Roffle 10:02:45 PM
I was offered a job on a tug boat and barge in Alaska as a deckhand back in the 90's. So yes, tugboat captain sounds cool really.
Dana K (host) 10:03:34 PM
Dean Wareham was jealous of you!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 10:04:41 PM
Dana K, I (finally) purchased the Encore ! 1983-1987 Calamités cd.
Colin 10:05:01 PM
i follow a dj on the socials who is harbor pilot/ captain for the day job. his life fascinates me.
Colin 10:05:38 PM
nice mini tugboat theme!
Dana K (host) 10:08:06 PM
Rob, that comp is so much fun
Dana K (host) 10:09:25 PM
I got a new job this past week. Sadly it was not a tugboat captain. Maybe tugboat office administrator
Alan Pasnyk 10:09:38 PM
I used to watch Captain Kangaroo on TV if that counts...LOL
yoni from kdu 10:09:54 PM
We're about to start taxiing but this has all been a lovely show, especially considering that I'm at an airport. Maybe not Music For Airports but definitely music for airports!
Dana K (host) 10:10:24 PM
Safe travels!
Steve Keane 10:10:41 PM
Be safe!
Roffle 10:11:23 PM
@Colin, I would take pilots to ships sometimes while under way in a skiff. They would jump on a Jacobs ladder and climb up it at speed. That is an insane job!
Rob from Maryland 🦅 10:13:13 PM
Dana, I'm looking forward to the 30-page booklet. I think everything on my C'est Complet is on the Encore ! cd, and it looks like there are two new songs on Encore !
Alan Pasnyk 10:13:54 PM
Roffle: Especially when you've got a few swells in the ocean..
Roffle 10:14:29 PM
Hey yoni! I have a Zappa song for luck I would play at takeoff on the runway. LOL
Dana K (host) 10:14:35 PM
I have never piloted a plane or a boat, but I did take a prop plane to a remote Scottish island and then take their mail boat back...worst nausea I've ever experienced
Dana K (host) 10:14:46 PM
Roffle 10:15:54 PM
@Alan, it was in or out of harbors, but nutzo all the way, every time.
Colin 10:16:35 PM
roffle, i've watched (still watching) enough deadliest catch to get how dicey the baring sea can get.
Alan Pasnyk 10:17:51 PM
I Love flying. When my neighbor had just got his license, we went night flying over Philly. Later a friend told me "are you nuts?" ...probably...
Roffle 10:19:27 PM
@Dana, haha, I hate that sea sickness when it is just a short ride. It takes me a couple of days out to get right for sure every time after being home for a couple of months. I used to do contrats on and off up in Alaska.
Dana K (host) 10:19:57 PM
I had awful seasickness on a massive cruise ship too. I'm not made for the sea.
Roffle 10:20:04 PM
Roffle 10:22:19 PM
I did trawler fishing in the Bering Sea. Barf at the scuppers and keep on working. That is why it pays well. lol
Dana K (host) 10:22:46 PM
Bet you have some good stories!
Roffle 10:23:27 PM
Lucky to be alive stories. lol
Steve Keane 10:23:40 PM
Kelly and I took a cruise to Bermuda for our honeymoon. The first night we ride around a hurricane. I was convinced we were going to die because in all my years watching Love Boat the Pacific Princess never lurched like that. She still makes fun of me for it almost 20 years later.
Ossy 10:25:19 PM
Sea sicknesses, not so good times
Colin 10:25:51 PM
dana, i lllooovvveeee the sea, but i get sick most a lot on boats of all sizes.
Colin 10:27:26 PM
i did grow up and live pretty landlocked. the closest large body of water near me is a creek
Roffle 10:27:56 PM
@Steve, I love skirting storms. We rode the most insane waves in the gulf of Alaska. You go up a swell at full power and ride down like a roller coaster. Scary AF, and yet oh so cool!
Ira Te Mix 10:29:07 PM
Funny, how when I was listening to that early Scritti Politti single you just played I heard a little bit of Robert Wyatt in the voice....
Steve Keane 10:29:41 PM
Riffle, a piece of me just died reading that.
Dana K (host) 10:29:57 PM
@Ira, and they were both on Rough Trade around that time!
jimbooooooo 10:33:37 PM
Lubbly soundz danaK thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
Dana K (host) 10:33:47 PM
yer welcome!
Roffle 10:36:21 PM
Red House Painters are just so good!
Colin 10:38:09 PM
now this is a broadcast collection i want to add to my record bin!
Colin 10:39:02 PM
also this USA is pretty broadcast-esk
Roffle 10:39:13 PM
@Steve, When death stalks you, you never feel quite so alive. :)
Dana K (host) 10:39:40 PM
I think USA were one of the biggest influences on Broadcast
Colin 10:40:28 PM
that very well may have been my first usa song. I honestly thought is was BC, but then i refreshed.
Roffle 10:41:37 PM
The USA is media central. Local radio and TV everywhere.
Dana K (host) 10:42:19 PM
Hard to escape the USA's sphere of influence
Steve Keane 10:42:45 PM
Roffle, nah! I'm a big coward. I feel most alive eating a really good sandwich.
Alan Pasnyk 10:43:51 PM
Just like Jello, there's always room for Stereolab..
Colin 10:43:53 PM
mmmmm..... sandwich. i had a lamb shawarma sammy earlier.
Roffle 10:44:20 PM
@Steve Keane, LOL me too these days. God bless. :)
Mike O. 10:46:05 PM
Really Excellent show... so many good tunes... ThanX!
Dana K (host) 10:46:41 PM
thanks mike!
Roffle 10:47:47 PM
@Colin, I had a lamb Gyro yesterday. :)
Steve Keane 10:49:04 PM
Lamb gyro. Excellent
Steve Keane 10:49:28 PM
We have a kickass shawarma place in Hatboro
Ira Te Mix 10:51:06 PM
This whole set has been such a 90's blast from the past for me because this is what we were all listening to and spinning at the San Francisco radio station I was a part of then...pretty amazing!
Colin 10:51:08 PM
👀 i'm 5 minutes from hatboro! which spot?
Dana K (host) 10:52:09 PM
I love to hear that, Ira!
Roffle 10:52:12 PM
I really love living in Philly just because I can jump on a bus in front of where I live and be downtown in 20 minutes having any kind of food the world has to offer.
Ira Te Mix 10:53:30 PM
Yeah, the Fifty Foot Hose got it's 1st CD reissue around that time so it fits right in!
Dana K (host) 10:55:25 PM
Thanks all for tuning in tonight!
Alan Pasnyk 10:55:44 PM
Dana: Super Fun show as always, Thanks and hope to see U Sunday. Have a safe drive home & bcnu ................................🛸
Roffle 10:55:57 PM
Another great show Dana! See ya along the way.
Steve Keane 10:56:06 PM
Rozanna. In the shopping center with In and Out. York Rd and Mill.
