G'day Brian & Sentient!
So much to say today, & yet it has all been said before, so many times without meaning or metamorphosis of our Species.

Morning Brian ?)
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:08am Paulo AD:

I forgot about my avatar lol We did the Bowie in Berlin for my birthday one year, I loved it
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:08am Paulo AD:

I missed out the word tour there haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09am Brian D:

Greetings all!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:09am Paulo AD:

I enjoyed that run, even though I hate running on the treadmill. Got a solid 4k in just over 20 mins
Avatar 3:12am Hubig Pie:

Black star Bowie is pretty downbeat heavy, I like very much
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:13am Paulo AD:

Hubig, its such a great album a perfect send off.
When I was getting my hair done I subjected the nurses to the full videos form the album...not sure they liked it
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:14am Paulo AD:

How you doing this week Brian ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19am Scott67:

They need to learn how to "fire in the air". The undisciplined low arc fire bullshit I've seen is fucked. Those bullets are heading back down with enough velocity to kill any poor bastard a mile away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Brian D:

Well, Paulo, all things considered. Thank you. Got a big storm on the way here. Hope all are safe and well...
Avatar 3:23am Hubig Pie:

Politics and rock and roll and Nico
G'night all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Scott67:

G'night Hubig.P. Sweet dreams.

All good here thanks chap, another week begins :)
Its my best mates birthday brunch on Friday and i'm in two minds to booze or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33am Brian D:

Decisions, decisions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Scott67:

So many versions of the End, at the beginning.
โœŒ๐Ÿ’€
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Brian D:

Fear not, @Scott...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Scott67:

Paulo, virtual Birthday, or are you with him in person?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am Scott67:

I fear only myself Brian. The rest are just scenery.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:40am Paulo AD:

in person. They have even updated the table situation now so we can sit 10 to a table after it being 4 for over a year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Scott67:

This is not the End. It is not the yet the beginning of the end. But it it however perhaps, the End of the beginning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am Brian D:

I am neither the alpha, nor the omega.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am coelacanthโˆ…:

good morning Brian and currant listeners

- i'll be floating in and out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am Scott67:

Sorry for the paraphrase & typos Winston.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51am coelacanthโˆ…:

(i wonder if any currants listen to the show...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am Brian D:

Winston isn't in a position to care @Scott. And hello Coelacanth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am Brian D:

I think only nuts like this program ;-)
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:07am Paulo AD:

Hi Coela, how goes it ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am Scott67:

History never repeats anyway. Right!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am Brian D:

And yet we never learn from it.

Sorry just tuning back in after a long ass meeting :( Not sure what I missed but I hope you're ok Brian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13am Brian D:

Thanks, Paulo. Yes, just asking for positive vibes for my dog Lira (pictured here). She's going through a weeks-long diagnostic process.
Avatar 5:19am Philipp:

@Brian D โ€“ I haven't visited this radio station for a long time, I missed it very much
