Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/16/08 3:08pm Lizardner Dave:

Hello Irwin. Fine transitional moment you and Kenny pulled off there.
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:11pm Sean Daily:

It's the end of the world? Cool! Now I won't have to pay off my credit card!
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:13pm Hello:

  Wed. 7/16/08 3:18pm Gigantor:

Yay! Punishment over, time for reward!
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:20pm Sean Daily:

According to Wikipedia (so it's probably wrong):

"Lothar and the Hand People was a late 1960s psychedelic rock band known for their spacey music and pioneering use of the theremin and Moog modular synthesizer. They are notable as "the first rockers to tour and record using synthesizers, thereby inspiring the generation of electronic music-makers who immediately followed them."

Said synthesizers seemed a bit thin and far between in "Comic Book"...
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:30pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Real live listeners comments!
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:32pm Lizardner Dave:

The salute to Hannah Montana continues.....
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:43pm north guinea hills:

holy shit, there's a new REM album. i might check it out. i'm probably the only person outside of irwin that likes REM after "green"
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:50pm Drew:

Probably not the only person, but you're right, they have definitely sucked since then.
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:54pm north guinea hills:

Drew: that doesn't explain why i like their later shit..., but to be honest, only "new adventures in hi-fi" is listenable. plus, it has the only track featuring patti smith i can stand....
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:56pm Drew:

They all have their moments - I suppose I like AUTOMATIC and HI-FI the best overall... Though MONSTER might have the highest highs. I haven't tried ACCELERATE but that song there didn't impress me much. How is it, Irwin?
  Wed. 7/16/08 3:58pm Lizardner Dave:

Would it be inappropriate to request "Whitey on the Moon" as a follow-up to "Jukebox on the Moon"?
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:00pm Drew:

Play Greg Kihn.
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:02pm Irwin:

I don't know much about this here R.E.M. band. Guys'll have to conduct your own comparative review. Get back to me with your assessments.
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:02pm swami:

Keir Dullea gone tomorrow.
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:06pm Clark Barr:

Holy Noel Coward, Swami!!!
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:15pm gigantor:

Man, Didn't Ken play Convoy this morning? I think the gas fumes are getting to everyone over there...
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:21pm gigantor:

Now *this* is the kind of crap that made me fall in love with Irwin in the first place! I'm Free!!!
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:21pm Harvey:

Jesus Christ I love WFMU
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:24pm gigantor:

Now, I'm surprised Rod Stewart didn't cover this on his album of American Standards...
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:31pm too embarrassed:

More Cowbell!
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:37pm Drew:

Someone explain Emma Pollock to me.
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:39pm Irwin:

Emma: Evocative voice, love what she does with it. End of explanation.
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:41pm Raj:

Irwin can you give Ange a nickel for this comment?

(Kidding. Just a reminder for everyone to stay tuned at 6...)
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:46pm north guinea hills:

i used to/still dig microdisney..... but, they don't excite me like they did when i was trapped in my indie rock ghetto....
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:51pm will:

Immediate and passionate second defense of Microdisney! Sean O'Hagan's lovely guitar and delicate song arrangements in unlikely juxtaposition with Cathal Coughlan's growling Irish brogue will always be a marvel. You played my fave song too, thanks. Will J Pawtucket USA
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:56pm north guinea hills:

almost as good at the pointer sister's "jump"
  Wed. 7/16/08 4:59pm listener jeff:

Aren't Yuka and Miho Cibo Mato or was that with different people?
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:01pm Sean Daily:

That song from Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori was fantastic.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:01pm north guinea hills:

listener jeff: yes, yuka and miho were cibo mato...
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:05pm Sean Daily:

Why yes, I like rum. I like it for that thing. And that other thing. And that third thing.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:05pm Listener Lizard Dave:

Irwin's sending us off into the corner to go get drunk. Ah well, works for me. Wrong New Pornographers song for it though but it'll do.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:06pm Sean Daily:

Are you kidding! Rum sucks! I heard that terrorists use rum when they do that other other thing!
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:07pm Sean Daily:

Perhaps you are mistaken, Sean. Terrorists only use rum when they do that other other OTHER thing. But rum is good for yet another thing.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:08pm Irwin:

Rum goes really well with ... um, I forget. Something. Hep me, plz.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:09pm Sean Daily:

Rum goes good with cherry Kool-Aid, Irwin. Makes a passable hurricane.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:10pm Mac:

A different rum is Diplomatico from Venezuela. It is aged in white oak casks and a great sipping rum...don't waste it by mixing it with a Coke! Runs about $25-30 per bottle.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:13pm Listener Lizard Dave:

Rum goes good with "a" and "bum bum bum" at Christmas time.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:13pm Irwin:

OK, a few recs: Ron Zacapa (Guatemala, 15 or 23 anos), Havana Club (Cuban, avail in Canada), Metusalem (ex-Cuba, now Dominican Republic), 10 Cane (Trinidad), Pyrat (Anguilla), Goslings, Big Black Dick (Cayman Islands), Khukri (Nepal), Wray & Nephew (Jamaica—warning: OVERproof), Old Monk (India—very smoove & vanilla-laced).

Oh, Sailor Jerry (Virgin Islands) -- he is nice.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:16pm Listener Lizard Dave:

Freeway Jam! Holy shit! When I worked as an assistant baker at a Dunkin Donuts a few decades ago there was a guy who would play this on the casette deck all the time. Man, now I gotta go get a chocolate honey dip and a Hurricane before I post comments to soak Andy on SSD.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:18pm north guinea hills:

like all great spirits, there is awesome rum, and shitty well rum that taste like fire ass.....
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:20pm Sean Daily:

God, don't talk about Dunkin Donuts' chocolate honey dipped donuts, Listener Lizard Dave. All we got here in Las Vegas is Winchell's and Krispy Creme, and they don't even come close to the sin-on-a-plate that is a chocolate honey dipped donut.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:21pm north guinea hills:

omz(arathushtra)! my favorite lush song of all time!!!. me love you long time irwin!!!!!! (not in that way....or what???!!)
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:23pm Irwin:

NGH: Get in line -- behind Kenny G. He love me long time. Try long time. No get enuff. I give him nada. He promise rum. Give nada. Go away Kenny. NGH bring me rum. I love you back, after Kenny's back.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:24pm Joe Bacon:

Dunkin Donuts, oh I loved their Apple crumb dounts--now that is heaven. Here in Los Angeles, I'm in the same donut boat as Sean--Krispy Kremes and Winchells, although I will admit that it is difficult to resist when the Hot Donut light is on at Krispy Kreme!
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:25pm Lizardner Dave:

Sean, I can tell you that they're even better when still warm from the fryer and wet with that sugar syrup glaze, oozing into the hole at the center. It makes me want to lick my arm.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:28pm Sean Daily:

Don't get me wrong, Joe Bacon. KK's raspberry jelly donuts and chocolate frosted donuts are the bomb. And Winchell's cake donuts are good.

But I'm a Jersey boy. I need my Dunkin Donuts. I REALLY NEED my Dunkin Donuts.

With rum, of course.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:28pm chris lowe:

and wtf is up with cheddar bacon burgers made on KK glazed donuts?
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:30pm Sean Daily:

I have no idea, Chris. But I want one.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:34pm Joe Bacon:

Chris--Google Luther Burger
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:39pm chris lowe:

Why we love WFMU - pushing the boundaries of man's knowledge on a daily basis, with great musical accompaniment.

And Rum.
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:49pm thedudeabides:

Glad I found WFMU, man..........
  Wed. 7/16/08 5:51pm ?:

  Mon. 12/28/09 4:40am Russell Bidwell:

Thanks for playing Creepy Weepy. My parents had it and after it broke, I haven't heard it in years. I call it Prokofieff Boogie. Mr. Gross also wrote "Tenderly" which became a standard. I'd like to hear the flip side "Improvisation in Several Keys" sometime!!!
  Mon. 12/28/09 4:45am Me Too:

Creepy Weepy is the best thing on this list by far. Play it more often...pleez.
  Mon. 12/28/09 4:46am Ziggy:

This Creepy Weepy piece is unique. I can only think of some stuff by Mary Lou Williams that was anything like it. More.
