It's Irwin G!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:10pm Jim:

Yo Irwin. Hi!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:11pm Otis F (cousin to Axel F):

Dana Drake. Incorrect Music is back!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:17pm Sean Daily:

Hiiiiiiiiiii Irwin.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:17pm Bruce:

Irwin, you introduced me to freeform. Thanks, thanks, and thanks!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:21pm Parq:

Hmm, this 'Trading post would go well with Billie Holiday's take of "Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do", qv.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:26pm Otis F:

Thanks for the play of our new stuff + followed by a cut from my fav ween album the mollusk. now that's, as the kids say, omg!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:32pm Jim:

Irwin's show is fun. He is always playing new things. Sometimes old things but I won't hold that against him too much!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:32pm gigantor:

Soul Parasol c'est magnifique!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:34pm gumby:

Yeah, that smell my feet, feet, feet song was pretty odrific!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:35pm gumby:

er, odorific that should have been.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:37pm Otis F:

I agree gigantor. soul parasol, c'est parfait musique (mon francais is pretty bad), but we can listen to more here, http://www.myspace.cn/soulparasol
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:40pm johnc:

Hello friends, when you want the authentic beST ... EVEN KIN Go to Tacoma ... home of the Sonics, the Jive and the Dag Sliggity Slag.
Let's meet up at The Swiss for some Baby Gramps or Girl Trouble...you pick the date, I'll sit and wait. Ciao!
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:51pm gumby:

PLEASE HELP ME!!! I just actually read the following sentence and have another hour and a half here at work aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!
When using the trenchless method of construction a sufficient and carefully carried out geotechnical investigation is decisive for the technical and economic success of a trenchlessly carried out sewer construction measure since the geotechnical and hydrogeological subsoil conditions decisively determines the selection of the jacking technique.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:51pm north guinea hills:

is this the remastered "loveless"?
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Gumby, there is no antidote for that crap except the one called 5pm.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:53pm north guinea hills:

hey gumby, when i worked for nyc's dep, we were creating a 3D digital model of NYC's sewer system. i know more about sewers then i ever wanted to know....
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:53pm Parq:

If it's not too late to ask, is "Dancing in the Show" a take-off of Gayla Peavy's "Are My Ears On Straight", or is it the other way around?

Gumby, confidentiality forbids my playing one-upsmanship with you, but trust me, you are not alone.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:55pm Nookular:

Just use a nuclear device (but a small one) to dig out yer sewerholes and don't worry about all the PC bullshit.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:56pm not me:

Wow, I never consider geotechnical and hydrogeological subsoil conditions when deciding on my jacking technique. Never again! Thank you, and keep up the good work, at least until 5.
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:57pm another old man:

jacking technique?
at work?
  Wed. 8/6/08 3:59pm north guinea hills:

when considering jacking techniques for the considered hydrogeological subsoil, you also have to consider the soil substrate...


god, thanks for bringing those years of torture back to me AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGG!!!!
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:03pm north guinea hills:

i happen to have the cassette, cd, and lp version of loveless..

i've played that album at all speeds from 16.5 rpm's and 78 rpm's

mbv geek i am.....
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:06pm gumby:

Thanks for talking me down everyone. The person who wrote the article seems to have regained some form of sanity and there are smaller sentences and less repetition of ridiculous words now.
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:09pm jon:

sooooothing soooounds, I hear. Thanks Irwin.
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:12pm Gigantor:

Ooh. Herb Alpert. This should cool down Gumby and all the rest of us toiling in despair.
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:14pm C:

New Killer Star by Bowie might fit into this great set
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:15pm gumby:

Ahhhhh "decisively" bad, jazz good
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:20pm ?:

Julien Cope- Head hang Low!!!!! one of the best songs of all time!!!
no doubt....
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:36pm oaklandish:

i see you pekin, illinois. i knew you were out there somewhere.
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:38pm kdjfdjglk:

any idea where you can get a copy of that song by the view, cant find it anywhere
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:38pm north guinea hills:

carl stalling, you magnificent bastard..... awesome!
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:44pm Sean Daily:

  Wed. 8/6/08 4:45pm hjmaiere:

I worked really hard to try to pronounce "Haruomi," and now it's just "Harry"?
  Wed. 8/6/08 4:46pm jon:

ohhhhhh never heard this version of AD... thanks Irwin
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:02pm north guinea hills:

now, this is REALLy incorrect.... i feel as if i'm in my college's campus coffee shop.....
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:03pm Ike:

I like this Garbage track. Some of my fellow Curve fans probably still believe that Garbage ripped off Curve wholesale, but I don't really hear it.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:07pm north guinea hills:

Ike, I love me some Curve, but I could never stand shirley manson's voice (or garbage's music)
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:08pm Sean Daily:

Thanks for playing that Garbage track, Irwin. I never was able to get the name of it.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:13pm Otis F:

Love the Caleb Sampson track.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:24pm Denise in Washington, DC:

The Bran Flakes on the same playlist as Joan Armatrading, Herb Alpert, Ween, and Garbage! Could it be anything other than an Irwin show?

I must confess that though I was an Incorrect Music fan, I don't remember Dana Drake. Thank heavens this show will be archived, so I can catch up with what I've missed.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:27pm Denise in Washington, DC:

And Gumby . . . I feel your pain. I live in the epicenter of preposterous obfuscatory jargon. I even write in it myself without even knowing.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:28pm Jim:

I never got into those last two.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:31pm Otis F:

What a great Kevin Ayers track - Something new worth hearing!
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:33pm Jim:

Play something new.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:34pm Mike in S. California:

Another studio audience show for SSD? Nooooooo...... I love SSD but those shows seem more like they're for the people in the room and not the listener.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:38pm Otis F:

God (literally), I haven't heard Niagara Falls since Incorrect Music. I would hire Dana to play my birthday party.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:39pm Sean Daily:

"Niagara Falls" like an advertising spot from the Niagara Falls Tourism Board for program breaks during the 700 Club.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:40pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Oh, *this* is Dana Drake. (I was thinking he was a woman.)
I need to own his Compleat Works.

Sean, I can see somebody tap-dancing to the song during that program break.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:43pm Sean Daily:

I can see that, too, Denise. Not my cup of tea, though.
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:45pm Jim:

  Wed. 8/6/08 5:48pm melty:

such a nice version of read it in books there.. embarrassed to say that i don't know who wrote it? there was another band who performed it who also had a song title with the word camera in it..whoops this probably isn't making much sense!
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:51pm Peter K.:

Jackie McLean, Cannonball Adderley ... Irwin, are you by any chance on a post-bop alto saxophone kick these days?
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:54pm Irwin:

Peter, you may be onto something. Evolving beyond trumpets (Clifford, Lee, Miles).
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:54pm Sean Daily:

I love the guitars on "Failsafe". Does anyone know what kind of effect they're using?
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:58pm melt:

oh- for anyone wondering..i just found the band's name- "the teardrop explodes"; was written by e&tb. for anyone not wondering...sorry
  Wed. 8/6/08 5:59pm Peter K.:

No, Irwin, you don't evolve beyond trumpets; you need the trumpets AND the saxophones. But that Cannonball track sure is a killer, isn't it?
  Wed. 8/6/08 6:00pm Parq:

Yet another sublime show.
  Sat. 8/9/08 2:43am Chris M.:

Irwin, superb. Thank you a thousand times in particular for "In a Strange Land" and the Clinic song.

And you're quite right - I cannot find anything about "The View" on wikipedia. This may have to change ;)
  Sat. 8/9/08 2:46am Chris M.:

Oh, and I should add, I absolutely adore Stranger in a Strange Land, the sci-fi novel by Heinlein. I wonder to what extent Heinlein influenced The View...
  Wed. 8/13/08 7:32pm Jay S:

Love the enhanced show opening!
