Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/3/09 3:04pm timotato:

Greetings. Please don't sing any Beatles.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:05pm deeming:

irwy ir ir irwy
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

there's some of that violent zombie mayhem
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:10pm BSI:

aah..... Miss Piggy on the way home from Oktoberfest, yes?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Kermit's got something heading his way, that's for sure
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:13pm Laura L:

Thanks for Tiger Lillies! Kermit and Miss Piggy... sounds like the listeners are thinking of the great Farmyard Filth album.... can we have some Farmyard Filth next week, Irwin?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:16pm Lizardner Dave:

Is it too early to request some Amanda?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:16pm hez344:

Mister, please not to sing beatles.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:18pm BSI:

...or Amanda Filth, mebbe?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:19pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'm guessin' this was part of a Valentine's Day gift to some lucky gal?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:20pm Cecile:

ugh. I may have to go to my "all Satie, all the time" station on Pandora.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:20pm Cecile:


thank god
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:20pm Parq:

Now we're rolling.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:21pm BSI:

aaawwwwwwww, yeh.....
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:21pm fishmonkeystew:


The video for this is hilarious.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:25pm Yakov Smirnov:

Who let me in here?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's really sumptin
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:30pm Cecile:

melt-banana, I love them.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I don't think you can melt a banana, but it sounds like a gooey treat. Topped with chocolate and whipped cream...
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:32pm Harry B.:

Come mister melty man, melty me banana...
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:32pm Hugo:

I was going to say exactly the same, but Cecile got there first. Seen them live and got the autograph of the singer!
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:33pm Foster Bananas:

Eat me, I'm as good as melted.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:34pm BSI:

christ, i haven't heard that Kids of Widney High record for ages... this is a hilarious version...
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:34pm Cecile:

Irrwin, are you doing your Tony Coulter impression?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:35pm Donovan:

Wee melt-able banana
is bound to be the very next phase...
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:36pm Parq:

I'm thinking this is his Scott Muni impression.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:37pm GDF:

Amanda vs. Susan Boyle, now that's a contest!
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:37pm BSI:

He's that typewriter insect with the talking butt, inne?
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:38pm still b/p:

In a world...where Irwin almost sounds like a movie trailer guy --
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:38pm Marshall Stacks:

That's not good for your vocal cords, Irwin. Scott Muni coulda told you.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:39pm ginger tim:

What're the odds of hearing some Saloom,Sinclair And The Mother Bear today??
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Andrew Bird's records are so milquetoast, but he's riveting live.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:44pm Cecile:

I wouldn't know. You can't get tickets to any of his shows around here - they sell right out.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

one more reason to live in flyover country...I saw him (free tix) in a half-empty theater two months ago.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:48pm Cecile:

yeah, you never know what flies out on the coasts.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:55pm just a guy:

@Dead Corporate Eyes
The problem though with that is that he won't necessarily be booked in your town again if turnout was that low.
  Wed. 6/3/09 3:56pm Cecile:

or a smaller, crummier venue
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:11pm bbell:

Irwin, you have a gift for playing music for a rainy day that leaves one feeling upbeat! My daughter is reviewing the Grizzly Bears CD for the school newspaper, and it was the polar opposite of your show:very bad mood rainy day.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:12pm Aharon:

I didn't know I really, really wanted to hear all this music until I heard it.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:25pm Unclear on the concept:

Can someone help me think of a new pseudonym?
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:27pm jeff-a-chusetts:

oh no, amanda.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:28pm Georges:

UotC: How about "Lighting Set My Butt on Fire?
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:29pm Jess:

I can see how that could be a problem... It's interesting that the lightning fire was limited to Amanda's butt.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:29pm still b/p:

new pseu. -- Uncle Aron.
We'll know.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Unclear on the concept: only you can come up with a handle for yourself. We don't know you...be creative. OR, what Georges said!
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:32pm Brucie:

Goodie. More AMANDA. Irwin, you are a giant.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:41pm AnAnonymousParty:

Hot bolts of lightning setting my butt on fire,
While angry weasels ripped my flesh.
And staggering zombies are crunching my bones.

These are a few of my favorite things
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:43pm Amanda Fan Club:

How do you tell co-workers to shut up while "Lightning Set My Butt on Fire is playing?" Thank god for archives. Wish you could find her for an interview. Goddess!
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:45pm AnAnonymousParty:

What kind of idiot doesn't have the good sense to remain silent for a performance by Amanda?
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

usually Amanda tunes generate some discussion around these here parts!
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:50pm Dave B:

who is "Amanda" and were can I find more of that stuff?

I snotted myself listening to it, and co-workers look at me like I'm the crazy one... They just don't get it.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:51pm Amanda Fan Club:

I wonder if she knows how much we crave her.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:53pm AnAnonymousParty:

Around here (as often is the case for WFMU), my co-workers stop what they are doing to ask "WTF is that?" before walking away silently shaking their heads.
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:54pm Bad Ronald:

AFC - I recommend politely asking in your best Amanda voice "would you please shut up?".

Yes DCE it appears we are rapt with Amandamania thanks to Irwin!
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:54pm Lizardner Dave:

  Wed. 6/3/09 4:58pm Amanda's #1 Fan:

Aye, keep it coming, Irwin!
  Wed. 6/3/09 4:59pm Dave B:

Just curious, for my own amusement, is there somewhere I can download some of the amanda stuff?

was scraping the archives, and man- that stuff is the best. It'd make for nice interludes on my ipod...
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:02pm Amanda Fan Club:

Unfortunately the only DJ on FMU who has received the Amanda transmission is Irwin. Someone should start an "All Amanda all the time" time slot. I know she's on My Space and Facebook but I bet she doesn't know about us. Her last name is Whitt or Wheet.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:02pm Brucie:

Desperate to buy, download, beg for Amanda tracks ... as always.


Amanda-less in Tibet
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:02pm Cecile:

I love Amanda, but I like this Reginald Forsythe.
My husband eats up early swing and Raymond Scott with a spoon.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:04pm Brucie:

I'd stop listening to WFMU to move to the All Amanda All The Time station WFAMANDA.org ... just joshing y' Irinw. We have you to thank for this mess!

Amanda-less in Saskatchewan
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:09pm Western Civilization:

Amanda is the last straw. I give up. You go figure out culture for the next two thousand years.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:12pm Lizardner Dave:


Amanda's MySpace. Can't fine the FB.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:16pm Dave B:

And just found this YouTube page as well.


God, I love the intarwebs.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:20pm Dennis Miller:

Hey, get off my lawn, baby.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:22pm Ike:

Still more coherent than GWB.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:23pm Parq:

Exactly, Ike - than on his best day.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:25pm Amanda Fan Club:

Jerserf is her brother. The first time Irwin played Amanda (4/29) he was in the comments section. So he would know how to let her know that we adore her so. Great hearing her in the background of this rant.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:25pm Lizardner Dave:

  Wed. 6/3/09 5:27pm Lizardner Dave:

And on the music end of things, I have a dream. A dream that Amanda will one day do a Corn Weenie remix. Yeah, I know she's probably 30 right now but how hard could it be to channel that voice? Especially if she smokes now?
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:30pm Greg from Detroit:

YAY! The Smoots!
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:41pm Parq:

This Lanois track is real pretty. Just saying.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:43pm Laura L:

Was just thinking the same thing. Real pretty. Thanks, Irwin, that was nice.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:43pm C:

is this the original circles? i've only heard the who version
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:46pm Irwin:

Pretty sure it's a Townshend tune. Sounds like a Shel Talmy production too.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:47pm Jerserf:

Hey ya'll! My first live chat... Irwin thank yo SO MUCH for your support and kind e-mails... I see Amanda next week!
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:48pm C:

thanks. yeah, shel really nailed that sound.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:53pm Parq:

Yee -haah!
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:54pm Lizardner Dave:

Jerserf, let us know what she thinks of her new found fame among Irwin's fans. Maybe Irwin can put it on the blog if he feels so inclined.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:55pm Jerserf:

I blogged about Amanda a few years back... maybe this will answer a few questions above? She didn't believe me when I told her that she has fans... hehehe

Maybe I could ask her to sign on during one of Irwin's broadcasts and chat to you beautiful peoples...

  Wed. 6/3/09 5:57pm Cecile:

I bought that Nick Haefner CD on your recommendation, Irwin. Found it quite inexpensively.

Maybe Irwin could do a phone interview with Irwin?
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:57pm Jerserf:

p.s. The next time I go to my parents' house, I'm going to look for 6 cassettes that I still haven't digitized. The best record we ever did was called "Monumental Whopper Turmoil Jam." Although, "Worship Me" is up there.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:58pm Cecile:

I mean, Amanda.
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:59pm Jerserf:

Irwin, let me know if you want her phone number. :)
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:59pm Amanda Fan Club:

Jersef -THAT WOULD BE SO COOOOL. Something to live for... I also like Concrete Nipples!
  Wed. 6/3/09 5:59pm Lizardner Dave:

That would be fantastic Jerserf.
  Wed. 6/3/09 6:13pm easy free people search:

There are two national Amanda Wheet listings in TN, and one in KY. May or may not be the same person.
  Thu. 6/4/09 7:15am Amanda Fan Club:

Check this out Amanda fans - http://comment.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewComments&friendID=5505277
Scroll down to Nov. 16 2008 - some Amanda vids!
  Fri. 2/25/11 9:22pm liz:

I heard Thomas Rewrites the Beatles when you first aired it, and I'm listening to it again & seriously, love it. I wish I had an mp3 of it I could listen to over and over again.
