  Wed. 10/21/09 3:20pm Spankyflop:

How about 78's gone wobbly week? Maybe the Old Codger could put the heat on....
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:21pm doug from DC:

Irwin, you are a contrarian's contrarian.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:21pm Irwin:

Doug, you're WRONG!
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:22pm John McCabe in LA:

No, we can't!
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:27pm GP:

Hmmm..a curious conundrum has been created.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:30pm BSI:

How much for a yard of curious conundrum?
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:31pm doug from DC:

Conundrum is sold by the pound, not by the yard.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:32pm BSI:

...pound of pomplamoose?
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:36pm They:

If you can't con over 'em....conundrum.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:36pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Damn. Missed the Mizzy tribute. Had the stream going, but wasn't paying attention. Probably somebody was demanding that I perform actual work. Damn them.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:41pm dc pat:

alright we have Denise, Doug, BSI, PMD, me...who else is in DC? I think it's usually about half the commenters.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:43pm GP:

Worst. Fake Accents. Ever.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:44pm PMD:

Does anyone else have the stream stuttering?
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:45pm Jim:

One of those guys sounds a lot like Jerry Clower, except that he never throws in a "Haw!!!"
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:45pm BSI:

flesh fingers danglin'?!?!?!

PMD, stream OK over here. So far.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:46pm Chalton Heston:

Miracle Grow potting soil is ... people!
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:47pm dc pat:

PMD: I've had trouble here and there.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:48pm PMD:

Like every 15-20 seconds. Tried a bunch of different streams.

Janet 2 Hoo! I like that. Um, better than Joo 2 Hoo
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:48pm Soylent Green Inc.:

I call trademark violation. You'll be hearing from my solicitor forthwith.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:49pm dc pat:

nah, more like every 20 minutes or so for me.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:50pm Janet H:

my streaming is good.....no 2 Hoo
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:50pm Denise in Washington, DC:

No stream trouble here. I'm using Firefox and Real Player.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:50pm PMD:

OK, we'll see how it goes. Made it through 2 minutes so far. Woo hoo!
dc Pat -There are many more DC'ers out there, but afraid to write. Government control and all...
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:54pm Janet H:

i live in indiana
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:55pm GP:

No thanks. I'll take Jennifer Charles lips instead.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:56pm PMD:

Oh, ps, thanks all for letting me know your stream status...
BTW, I actually met someone my age who hadn't see Soylent Green! Shocking.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:57pm GP:

My lo-fi 32k MP3 stream is all good...has been all day.
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:59pm dc pat:

hey Irwin, what is East AAhranj?
  Wed. 10/21/09 3:59pm Janet H:

listening 128k mp3 on itunes...sounds great!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:02pm doug from DC:

My connection was fine, but my WMP stream just died. I reconnected at 32K, using RealPlayer.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:03pm GP:

Split Enz!!!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:03pm Irwin:

Pat: East Orange was the original base of WFMU, and our license was issued in that city (in 1958). Hence, we are obligated by FCC fiat to identify ourselves that way at the top of each hour. But we ain't there, and ain't been since 1998.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:04pm jan:

Just don't get these twangy guitars and upper register male singers you have on just about every show these days, Irwin, and I've been following you for 30 years. How do you explain this evolution in your taste?
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:08pm Tiny Tim ( with uke ):

Did someone request upper register male singers?
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:09pm Irwin:

Jan: Does Miley Cyrus count? And Star Country? I still loves me some lower register--and lotsa piano (tho not necessarily all at once).
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:09pm Dong Sun:

I sing high Korean
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:10pm flatrich:

Been following you for more than 30 years and you still taste the same to me...
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:12pm jan:

From What I seen on the TV, Miley Cyrus is a female, sounds like one, too. Maybe it's just a phase, and you will out grow it soon. I haven't lost my loving feeling for you yet, sung in a bass register
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:12pm Irwin:

How-day, Rich!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:13pm flatrich:

Doody, Irwin :o)>
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:14pm jan:

yahh, this sounds good- i turned it back up loud for New Day, Sounds from the ground etc.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:20pm Carmichael:

Dead WMP stream!!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:22pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Late to the party (and conversation), as usual -- I just saw SOYLENT GREEN when TCM did a Charlton Heston tribute after he died.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:23pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Saw it for the first time, that is.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:26pm jan:

it's twangy again!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:34pm dan in falls church VA:

really dug the Brother Kite track.

Hey, Denise in Washington, DC, it's dan in falls church VA!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:35pm Jan:

Al Cooper- that's the piano you speak of...he does sing in an upper register. But he was such a poet and a great artist. Plays a mean B3 too.
Would enjoy more of his music, 'specially from Blues Project. But that was all so long ago, and I look to you for introductions to the new!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:36pm BSI:

Nick the frikkin' BARD!!!!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:37pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Nick the Bard sounds like a Misterogers character.

Dan in falls church va -- hi!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:37pm ManDrone:

I thought this was the DJ being silly at first...
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:39pm dan in falls church VA:

so did I!

I wonder how long this is gonn go on?
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:40pm CatfishKing:

More evidence that all WFMU DJ's are sickos that love dragging us through the muck with them!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:41pm PMD:

7 inches of Amanda!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:41pm BSI:

  Wed. 10/21/09 4:41pm PMD:

dc pat, I think Dan in Falls Church counts as the great DC metro area.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:42pm GP:

Amanda on 45?........ Sheaya, right..
But we still love her.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:43pm dan in falls church VA:

Hi PMD. The City of Falls Church lies merely seven miles east of Washington DC itself!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:43pm Carmichael:

How am I supposed to listen to Amanda with a dead WMP stream?!?!?

Doron, do you know IT CPR?
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:44pm BSI:

GP, seriously, I'd buy a 7" of Concrete Nipples / Worship Me.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:44pm blue woogy:

could use some aural KY...
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:45pm college park md:

  Wed. 10/21/09 4:46pm GP:

BSI - me too! I'd like Irwin to interview her again, I miss big Amanda.

Irwin, is this the only running/track related song in the universe?
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:48pm Ren:

Crooning.!....KROONING.!!.... K R O O N I N G !!!!
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:49pm PMD:

Dan, I know. I live in Arlington. Work in DC... I meant to write greater DC area. dc Pat was asking because we want to form a coalition to have WFMU do something down in our area for a change.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:53pm doug from DC:

PMD, I would be interested in this coalition, too.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:53pm trent:

nice song
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:55pm A legitimate D.J. question:

Who originally did this "My Boys" song. My Googler is disabled.

Thank you kind sir or perhaps a wiling listener might chime in.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:55pm jan:

Irwin: can you make a marathon premium with Koichi Sugii and the like?
In other words, you could make a novelty premium for those who like to laugh and then a serious one for those who might want to listen to your
premium cd more than once. just a suggestion...
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:57pm GP:

Ah ha..found it "My Girls" by Animal Collective...I knew I head that melody before.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:58pm GP:

I'm not really form Maine...I just forgot to put an "r" in head, thus head = heard.
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:58pm mabeuse:

noted: sniffsniff whiffwhiff. record fair aromatherapy? .. irwin?..?
  Wed. 10/21/09 4:58pm texas scott:

crap,i missed most of the show.
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:04pm Jeff M:

[chiming in a little late]: Nobody really likes wearing running shoes.

And for those who like to look at pictures of their musical idols, I submit:


  Wed. 10/21/09 5:11pm GP:

Jeff..thanks, but what I really want to know is if he is truly a professional bard or if he is operating with false credentials?
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:17pm mabeuse:

aaahh its the tingler!!! black mustasche is mustafa hamsho
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:18pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who keeps having this same exact dream.
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:20pm Nick the Bard:

I was dubbed this by Professor Dum Dum years ago, so make your own conclusions from that maybe?
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:23pm blue woogy:

oh johnny johnny.. whoops johnny.. giahnnnny!!
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:26pm GP:

Nick, that seems like an official decree to me, so be it, from this day hence be it forever known around the realm.
Over and out, etc. etc.
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:27pm Lizardner Dave:

This is some seven inch!
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:28pm Johnny Wadd:

Seven inch? BAH!
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:28pm mabeuse:

hey John Scott filled out my program toooo! go figure!!
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:30pm Jeff M:

This piece set me to looking up the CBS Radio Workshop. Found a description of a sound effect they crafted:

"It took three radio sound men, a control-room engineer and five hours of hard work to create the sound that was heard for less than 30 seconds on the air. The sound consisted of a ticking metronome, tom-tom beats, bubbling water, air hose, cow moo, boing! (two types), oscillator, dripping water (two types) and three kinds of wine glasses clicking against each other. Judiciously blended and recorded on tape, the effect was still not quite right. Then the tape was played backward with a little echo added. That did it. The sound depicted the manufacturing of babies in the radio version of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. "

Dunno if I want to sit through the whole production, but now I really want to hear that sound effect!

I repeat to myself: cow moo, boing! (two types); cow moo, boing! (two types); cow moo, boing! (two types).
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:33pm AnAnonymousParty:

Yeah, why does baby manufacturing always involve the sound of a cow mooing?
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:33pm Denise in Washington, DC:

We DC-area folks shouldn't wait for 'FMU to do something for us -- we should just throw a party!
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:34pm Denise in Washington, DC:

This play reminds me of Judson Fountain.
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:39pm BSI:

That Piazzola LP is def. one of my top ten in the collection. It's a mixed bag up there, that top ten...
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:50pm GeorgeSimian:

Coldplay?! You're not playing Coldplay! Stop!
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:51pm Jeff M:

Irwin IS a rebel.
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:52pm GeorgeSimian:

They play this in funeral parlors
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:53pm georgeSimian:

Ah, much better
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:53pm jan:

yeah, George- speak out. I've been battling this chirpy music all afternoon, but Irwin just keeps on playing it. He marches to his own drum.
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:54pm shmoopy:

i think the streets have no name. jeez i dont know
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:55pm bono:

it was a chirpyful day...
  Wed. 10/21/09 5:55pm georgeSimian:

Yeah, but who else plays the Duke of Iron?
