OH MY GOD I just realized that you and Jonesey are "PB & J." This is huge. I need to sit down.

Killer show last night, Greg!
Good afternoon PB, wrestlers, lumberjacks, and bears alike!

Hi Paulie B and all!!! Happy New Year to all!!!
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 3:05pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Greetings Paul! HNY!
  Swag For Life Member 3:05pm upstate sean:

whatup Bruno. Been catching you on the archives, enjoying.
  Swag For Life Member 3:07pm upstate sean:

sorry, left out: Paul
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm TomDash:

Hey there Paulie B - Happy '22! Tuning in just to see if I need to grab that We Are Not Devo comp (well, and to catch up on all the other oldies too!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Thanks for tuning in, Dose!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm efd:

YESSSS! Love the Airport 77s!
  3:10pm Cooh John:

Hello PB and fellow listeners. Any Cbus gems to be played today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ PB:

Happy new year, everyone! Thanks for tuning in!

Hat tip to efd for turning me on to Airport 77s on his best of the year show last week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm efd:

Awesome, glad I can spread the word about that band!
Avatar 3:11pm K8:

Hi Paul and everyone! Happy new year! Love that Airport 77s song...that's a lot of clever rhyming about wine choices on dates! Make your toes curl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Chris Crash:

Hey yo PB! YESSSSS I love Taqbir!! The EP they put out this year was incredible. Probably the first Moroccan band I've ever loved?
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happy New Year, Paul, K8 and listeners!
Avatar 3:20pm K8:

Happy 2022, Ken!!!
Avatar 3:21pm K8:

Everything I hear from this Heroes of the Night comp is so goooood...gotta get it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm DJ PB:

@upstate sean: Welcome to the live experience!

@K8: It's a great comp! Hopefully back in print soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm efd:

It's also available digitally if (like me) you're too impatient to wait for the physical version to come back.
Avatar 3:25pm K8:

Hi EFD! Yeah, I like to have digital help me decide what I love enough to get in other formats. Handy and I just got a working turntable again, and I'm fearing records might take over our very small BK apt very soon.
  3:26pm big wally:

WOW, Glass Torpedos...very buzzcocky, luv it paulie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm mariano:

Happy New Year, everyone! So, I looked it up, and Al-Zuki Akbar means "My Ass Is the Greatest." Body-positive punk!

Hi and happy New Year, K8, good to see you!
Avatar 3:33pm K8:

Mariano! Hope that 2022 is treating you well so far...xoxo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Missed this Rosali when it came out and didn't hear it until a week or two ago. It really is something special.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ PB:

Thanks, mariano. I should maybe look these things up myself before I play them on the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm efd:

I missed this Rosali altogether โ€” just added to my Bandcamp wishlist.
  3:35pm SeanG:

what other best of 2021 shows do you recommend Paul B??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm efd:

ooh, nice edit there PB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ PB:

It really is, Greg. She's been around for a while too. This is like her third album. I feel like a real ignoramus for missing out for so long!
  3:38pm Zach1028:

That Rosali track was amazing! Thank you so much for sharing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ PB:

@SeanG: Well I can tell you I've heard (or at least heard of good chunk of) efd, Nate K and Tom Dash's best of shows. So I'd start with those but the WFMU DJs are so knowledgable and passionate that I'd literally recommend anyone's best of. Many are returning from vacation so there are probably a bunch coming up this week. I believe Suzy Hotrod is doing hers tonight so stay tuned for that!
Avatar 3:39pm HyperDose:

Oh my goodness, K8's here. Hey K8! :D
Avatar 3:40pm K8:

Hi HyperDose! Sunday afternoon is my time to show up on the boards...great to be here!

Loving this Eleventh Dream Day...Viva Chi-town!
Avatar 3:46pm HyperDose:

@K8 Handy's been keeping us filled-in on the work and kitten situation. Don't know how you manage to still get out an do stuff. My hat is off to you both!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm TomDash:

Rosali just did a couple week tour with her pal Emily Robb backing her as a duo (she also a great solo record in 2021!) - they opened for Hiss Golden Messengerโ€ฆand sat in with the band too for some jams I believeโ€ฆ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm TomDash:

(And thanks for the kudos paulie b!) - solid show today
Avatar 3:47pm K8:

Kittens are a drug, HyperDose, beware...I have one asleep on me right now...intoxicating!
  3:48pm SeanG:

thanks DJ PB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ PB:

@TomDash: That Emily Robb record is all over year-end lists as well.
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Jeezy:

@TomDash vs DJ PB vs Mike Sin vs maybe Creamo Coyl.... who is most likely to melt your face off and dump and ram the sweet liquid back down your neck?!!? Bahahahaha... you guys all rock!

G'day Paul & All!

Avatar 3:52pm HyperDose:

Agreed, K8! My new girl had a rough start in life and was a bit of a handful at first (she's 4). Kept showering her with love/affection and she finally warmed up to me. We don't deserve these clawed angels!
Alright, shower time. Thanks, PB!
Avatar 3:52pm K8:

Happy 2022, Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ PB:

Thanks Jeezy! (I think.)
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Jeezy:

It's definitely thanks-worthy, Paul! You guys are all amazeballs! But Mike Sin's Music To Spazz By fill-in last Thursday was particularly awesome, however I honestly believe that was at leas partially because I could barely even see form so much weed and spiked egg nog...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Scott67:

Cheers K8! To you 2 too!

I thought that this Wurld Series LP sounded a little like Pavement so I gave it to my teenage son for Xmas.

Hello DJ Paul Bruno. A magnetized Wurlitzer has attracted me to say hello.

G'day, Scott & Paulo. Happy New Year, gents!

@Doug in JC: I'm glad I passed the car test. I've been told my show is a great soundtrack to Sunday chores, I wasn't sure about a moving vehicle.

Long live Gang of Four! Do they have a NYC date? And damn, this FACS is hot, too...I'm just digging bands from Chicago today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm DJ PB:

@Doug & Paulo: I'm somebody's stash! I've never felt so honored! Like I'm as valauble as drugs!

@Greg: You might burn yourself with a take that hot!!

Oh, it's helping Paul :)
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Paulo AD:

So hey guys, the job in Chile asked for kezAs references
  4:37pm Listener Robert:

How could the DJ getting "into it" be embarrassing?! DJ Stashu dances with headphones on, Uncle Michael sometimes air drums or air strums. Isn't enthusiasm a GOOD thing?
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Will the Sound Guy:

I've gotta cut out, I'll be listening in the car ๐Ÿš— Thank you DJ PB in advance! great show man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Chris Crash:

I haven't heard that FACS album yet! And some strawberry cough sounds wonderful, so I'll be getting both.
  4:39pm Listener Robert:

And I give those examples because, besides Pat Byrne, they are the ones who've streamed video of them DJing. I've no idea how much the other DJs get into it!
Avatar Paul Bruno Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Paulo AD:

I can tell a few of the over night guys get into it, specifically my faves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Greg from ZONE 5:

I was belting out the Bill Withers last nite, but it's OK because I have perfect pitch.
Avatar 4:43pm K8:

Caught some of your fill-in for Marty last night, Greg, and it was great! Thank you! And how can you not belt it out with Bill Withers? You must!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Thanks K8!
(Please note:my pitch is highly imperfect)
Avatar 4:45pm K8:

Perfect pitch is overrated...it's the energy that counts!
  4:45pm Listener Robert:

Society seems to have a perverse "too cool to show it" ethos by which being able to see someone's GOOD emotions becomes BAD. Feh. I love public displays of affection, people going nuts over stuff. That's probably one of the reasons I love children and dogs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm DJ PB:

Robert, if you had my emotions, you'd know why they must be hidden.
Avatar 4:50pm Joe Belock:

emotions in motion

This Girl Friday track is fabulous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Scott67:

I just did a motion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Greg from ZONE 5:

I second Paul's emotion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm efd:

Annoyed that I missed that Girl Friday release in 2021, not that I needed more complications in creating my best of lists.
Avatar 4:52pm K8:

This last set is really sealing the beauty of this show, Paul! Thank you!!!
