The party begins!
Avatar 3:03am MissEevie:

I'm freaking hyped for a night of doom.
Avatar 3:05am Bill Zebub:

It shall become dark.

Avatar 3:09am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, Ole Rick
Avatar 3:10am MissEevie:

I will happily wait.
Hey Ole Rick.
If I am slow to respond, I'm trying to work as well... so I am here.. just.. might need a minute to get my attention.
Avatar 3:12am HyperDose:

The night is young!
  3:12am king Adam:

good evening Bill , Eevie , Rick , Listeners , good to be here
Avatar 3:12am Bill Zebub:

We are easing into the depths... a sort of black metal song is next, and then the tempo and vocals will open the gates of hell.
Avatar 3:12am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, King Adam.
Avatar 3:14am Bill Zebub:

What is the opinion of this selection?
Avatar 3:15am HyperDose:

Easygoing opener.....it will catch us off guard when you decide to thrust the sonic knife deeper.
Avatar 3:16am Bill Zebub:

Many wounds shall be inflicted this night, HyperDose.
Avatar 3:16am MissEevie:

It's alright, still a little...? singy? to me
Hey King Adam! \m/
Avatar 3:17am Bill Zebub:

Throats shall henceforth appeal to you, Miss Eevie.
Avatar 3:18am Bill Zebub:

The next song is from a Dutch band, in case we have any visitors from the Netherlands.
Avatar 3:19am MissEevie:

I was adopted by a dutch family.. so kinda? :)
Avatar 3:20am Bill Zebub:

After that, the song will be dedicated to you, Miss Evie, and I would love hearing that you become a fan of the band.

Calgon take me away.

When is Heavy Dreamer?
Avatar 3:21am Bill Zebub:

The vocalist of Dodecahedron died last year, by the way. You are hearing a voice that never more shall be.
Avatar 3:22am Bill Zebub:

JSA, so you have a CD player, or are you too modern for that?
Avatar 3:23am MissEevie:

Oh how sad. :(
Avatar 3:24am jsa:

I am not modern enough for that. I need it on phonograph.
Avatar 3:25am Bill Zebub:

I should put you in contact with the band, JSA - there is probably a vinyl version.
Avatar 3:28am Bill Zebub:

(I have just learned that JSA has purchased the Vanishing Kids album "Heavy Dreamer" - I can rest now).
Avatar 3:33am MissEevie:

?? I have totally heard of them. Weirdo
But Yay! :D Thank you!
Avatar 3:33am HyperDose:

@jsa So you're the other person (aside from me) who listens to The Old Codger.
Avatar 3:34am Bill Zebub:

  3:36am Adam from the South:

Calgon take me away

Calgon take me to your leader.

Calgon take me away.

Calgon take me away.
Avatar 3:36am MissEevie:

I will make a point to put them on more often :)
Avatar 3:37am jsa:

@HyperDose Unless you mean, Bill, I am new to Vanishing Kids. His film Boogers of the Antichrist featured the song and turned me on to them.
Avatar 3:37am Bill Zebub:

The song will darken even more, Miss Evie
Avatar 3:38am jsa:

When I make coffee, I sing "my heavy.... creamer."
  3:38am king Adam:

  3:47am Adam of the South:

Calgon set the controls for the heart of the sun
Avatar 3:51am HyperDose:

Not familiar jsa, but I am perusing. Is there a particular moving picture that's a good starting point for a new initiate? Is there any linearity between films, or is it a mixed bag? Any recs from the Bill himself are of course welcome too.
Avatar 3:53am jsa:

@HyperDose Puppet Masters on the Absurd Horror Double Feature.
Avatar 3:53am Bill Zebub:

I cannot comment, Hyperdose. It is a conflict of interest.
Avatar 3:54am Bill Zebub:

Are you still with us, Miss Eevie?
Avatar 3:55am HyperDose:

@Bill I understand
@jsa many thanks!
Avatar 3:55am MissEevie:

Yup yup
Avatar 3:55am jsa:

I think Puppet Masters is on Vimeo too btw
Avatar 3:56am Bill Zebub:

I consider the violin in this song to be quite evil.
Avatar 3:58am MissEevie:

Oh for sure.
Avatar 3:58am jsa:

@Bill Zebub I expect a kick back. But you can keep it if you play Heavy Dreamer.
Avatar 3:59am jsa:

Or make me a coffee... heavy creamer.
Avatar 4:02am Bill Zebub:

Opinions must be freely givem, JSA. And your recommendation of PEET's coffee is appreciated. I have tried the myriad blends and now it is my favorite.
Avatar 4:09am HyperDose:

PEET's is very good. My mother would get it mail ordered for years. I've heard they are who supplies Starbucks their beans (before they ruin them). Can't confirm if that's true though.
Avatar 4:10am jsa:

Oh sweet. I like their bean better than a lot of "boutique" blends. Way better than ⛧$.
Avatar 4:12am jsa:

Not true. But I can confirm ⛧$ ruins their beans. They shared a bean with a brand called Seattle's Best, but move to their own sources 10+ years ago.
  4:12am Listener Bop Monroe:

greetings from rilly rilly dark Tannersville.
time for toast and tea with this sludge! yum!
Avatar 4:13am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, Bop Monroe.
Avatar 4:13am HyperDose:

I judge my coffee on the sludge factor. I enjoy PEET's for an afternoon dark roast, New England Coffee's french vanilla for a poundable breakfast beverage.
  4:14am annette:

@tannersville. handshake from across the poke in the nose
Avatar 4:16am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, Annette.
  4:16am annette:

rockland maine has a great employee owned coffee roasting biz. man, you get high on the aroma
  4:17am Listener Bop Monroe:

a - right back atcha this fine morn. nose is runny though.
Avatar 4:17am jsa:

Check out Bones Coffee. They do a lot of neat flavored coffees. I get From Dusk Till Donuts, raspberry doughnut flavored. Since I can't actually have doughnuts...
Avatar 4:18am HyperDose:

Ah, thanks for the clarification jsa. Quickly muted the show to listen to WFMU royalty Dennis Diken accept his NJ HoF induction. My ears shall return shortly!
  4:19am annette:

@bill z. gawd we need this escape from the daily news.
Avatar 4:20am Bill Zebub:

The daily propaganda shall never enter this realm.
Avatar 4:20am Bill Zebub:

Metal is escapism.
  4:21am annette:

@bop. obviously you missed the ken and andy nose pick segment.
Avatar 4:21am Bill Zebub:

OKTOR is from Poland.
  4:22am Listener Bop Monroe:

metal is LIFE. rrrrrraaaawwwwrrrrrkkkk!!!
(cookie monster vocal)
  4:24am Listener Bop Monroe:

snot like i missed much...
Avatar 4:27am HyperDose:

So that makes today Twofer Thursday...righteous.
  4:39am Listener Bop Monroe:

yow! monster cookies alright!!! more like paradise found.
Avatar 4:41am Bill Zebub:

Do you approve, Listener Bop, or do you mock?
Avatar 4:43am MissEevie:

Just stepping away for a few minutes.
Avatar 4:44am Bill Zebub:

Miss Evie, hast thou heard Hallatar? They are being prepared...
Avatar 4:46am HyperDose:

You had me at "former HIM drummer Gas Lipstick"
  4:47am Edwin:

Hi! Just jumpin' on right now! Ugh, Skepticism? I saw 'em at MDF... you like 'em?
Avatar 4:48am Bill Zebub:

Welcome, Edwin. I was at that show, by the wAY.
  4:50am Edwin:

Ha! No kidding? That was a fun one. But, yeah, not a fan of that band.
Avatar 4:51am Bill Zebub:

Perhaps you will find something new in this broadcast.
  4:54am Listener Bop Monroe:

approve! approve!!
  4:54am Edwin:

Yeah, it's mostly new to me. The only ones I'm familiar with are My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost. I don't know squat about most of the slow 'n' gloomy goth metal type stuff, but I'm diggin' what I'm hearing.
Avatar 4:59am HyperDose:

That soloing is soul nourishing
Avatar 5:08am MissEevie:

Booo! I missed septic Flesh
Avatar 5:16am jsa:

This sounds like it's backed by Vangelis... that's a good thing imho
Avatar 5:17am Bill Zebub:

I like the dystopian sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18am -Ken:

Morning all
Avatar 5:20am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, Master Ken.
  5:20am Listener Bop Monroe:

Howdy SMK!
Avatar 5:21am HyperDose:

Ken, it's going to be okay. I know it may be scary right now, but I promise you everything is going to be just fine. ❤️
Avatar 5:22am Bill Zebub:

I will show mercy before the dawn.
  5:25am king Adam:

Avatar 5:25am MissEevie:

I appreciate you putting together a darker night that I inspired :) It has been very enjoyable! <3
Avatar 5:27am Bill Zebub:

The next song is also yours, Miss Eevie.
Avatar 5:27am MissEevie:

Avatar 5:30am Ole 'Rick:

Great show Bill
Avatar 5:36am MissEevie:

THANK YOU BILL! <3 You are the best!!
  5:37am Edwin:

Hey, who's Candlemass??? Juuust kiddin'. I saw 'em in Los Angeles three years ago, and they had this sexy skinny guy n singing rather than the big fat guy! Now the big fat guy is back.
  5:39am king Adam:

this is one is is along to
  5:40am king Adam:

I sing along to
  5:42am Edwin:

Wait, no, my bad. The original singer wasn't the fat guy. He came on the second album. The original singer is back, and he's not fat.
  5:46am king Adam:

woohoo! Madder Mortem!
  5:50am Listener Bop Monroe:

mmmm... back fat....
Avatar 5:53am HyperDose:

This riff feels like getting kicked in the shins repeatedly. Que rico
Avatar 5:56am northguineahills:

Thanks, Bill!
Avatar 5:56am MissEevie:

Almost at the end :( Hope everyone stays safe, please..:) I hope to see everyone back next week.
  5:57am Listener Bop Monroe:
