Yes! I check the Paul Bruno FMU page regularly to make sure I didn't miss a show. PB is in my top 3 radio DJ list alongside Jon Solomon and John Peel.

How cool is WFMU in that the substitute DJs outclass the paid DJs on the other stations. Thanks for spinning tonight, PB.
Avatar 10:04pm Lost Cause:

Killer show! loved the Empire track. best from California
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Kelly Jones:

I know, John! I look at it like this; WFMU is the long ball hitter. WPRB is like the little aspiring brother with a ways to go.
  10:07pm John from Florham Park:

@KFHP this is why I am going more and more to stations like this, the DJs give a damn about what they play
  10:09pm John from Florham Park:

@kelly it is that this station is in a class by its self and I have been spoiled by this station
  10:18pm MplsCoco:

This has been really fun to listen to! Thank you! ❤️

Our Gang Off
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

i had to look at the stranglers discography, since my source of nuclear device is different than the playlist source, yet from the same year.
it seems they released an album with only 1/2 the songs from the raven for the united (police) states market. -with the exception of "nuclear device", they deleted every song that mattered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm DJ PB:

So many short songs! I wish I could respond to all of you but that would mean dead air. Thanks again for listening everyone.
  10:30pm Marie:

I saw one of the Stranglers on a solo tour a few years back (I can't remember his name, I think he was the lead singer). He and his band were really good.
  10:31pm steveL:

Fish: got a link. That’s curious
  10:34pm steveL:

I had a Cherry Red version of Dead Kennedys Fresh Fruit... Italian release, same but for the absence of Police Truck (and a b/w cover, rather than orange)

Dark Blue is very, very satisfying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

yeah - kind of like implying the americans would prefer to just keep their heads in the sand, which of course couldn't be further from ...
okay it's true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Kelly Jones:

That freakin' Dark Blue cut was great...
  10:35pm steveL:

Couldn’t hear you for the silica in my ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

steveL that's...revelatory! i have fresh fruit for rotting vegetables and it too does not have (the most excellent) police truck. I NEVER KNEW IT WAS FROM THAT ALBUM!

I pledged like $3K... I am DONE Paul LOL!!!!
  10:39pm Marc15:

And now, from the Emergency Ward of the Beautiful Downtown Jersey City Manicure And Muffler Repair Shop ...
  10:40pm John from Florham Park:

@kelly sometime tomorrow I will give WPRB a listen
  10:42pm old ERIC thee hat:

Grew up listening from Newburgh, NY. Couldn’t have done it without you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

i think a lot of bands are going to change their names to include the word "cauliflower" now.
  10:43pm Johnzon:

that's a great name!
  10:43pm steveL:

Fish: Yup. My first copy went the way of a roommate, which is the way of things. Orange ink instead of black. Very fucking jarring at the time.

Also had the photo of some band that had to be deleted later (it was still on the Cherry Red version, which is why I bought it.

  10:44pm steveL:

This pic, which was hilarious.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Kelly Jones:

I'm buying that Dark Blue LP....
  10:45pm Marc15:

I read New York Magazine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

"duchess" is on the raven. one of the worst songs on it. and their biggest hit maybe. the only song i usually skip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm coelacanth∅:

steveL that's a brilliant orange! mine's definitely black; but i think we both have/had original pressings. police truck may have been added to reissues?
  10:55pm steveL:

Don’t think it was added. I bought my orange one early on, which was unusual for me.

This one says it has it.

  10:56pm steveL:

Also, fuck my roommate for “loaning “ it to an imaginary person. Not bitter!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm coelacanth∅:

this band: people.southwestern.edu...

(that marathon web address led me to a gobble search page!)
YES FUCK THAT ROOMMATE! (and imaginary people, everywhere)
