    WPRB DJ and Comedy Minus One impressario Jon Solomon joins Protonic Reversal by phone to give a master class in conducting radio shows, preparation and building moods, digging deep on what you love and exactly how one conducts yearly 25 hour straight Christmas special. He also speaks about his current label Comedy Minus One (which is *NOT* a comedy label) and his old one My Pal God. And his formative influence: Wings – At The Speed of Sound. Brenna oversleeps so Conan tells dangerous BART multitasking to an empty room. All this, laughs and great tunes

    Happy New Year! From Protonic reversal. Neutron and Brenna drag their bedraggled persons into the studio to talk to Mr. John Congleton. Legendary producer and the pAperchAse/Nighty Night Impressario. There is much talk of St. Vincent and Grammys, Explosions in the Sky, Swans, John Darnielle, production process, art by democracy, and such. As well as why there is no pt.2 to Someday This Will All Be Yours. Also a hilariously loopy first hour. Yoga dude yells at Brenna with cartoons smell waves of piousness, awake at the Wicking hour. “That’s gross”, Terry Malts mash pits, etc.

    Come on! he’s super interesting, we’re hilariously out of it… it’s a winner all around.
