Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:01pm Waiting:

Gee, I'm bored...
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:03pm PMD:

Only those who are boring are bored. la la la la la look at me on my high horse... la la la
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:05pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

PMD, that horse is completely STONED.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:05pm Jeff from St. Paul:

Why ride a boring high horse when you can ride an exciting dirt bike!? VROOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:07pm PMD:

No wonder it wasn't moving.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:07pm Parq:

PMD is probably riding a snowmobile.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:08pm Jeff from St. Paul:

Is PMD Todd Palin?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:12pm Laura L:

The rare (as yet) alternate Clientele "Harvest Time"--thanks, Irwin!
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

man, they be skipping my hometown on their North American tour...not happy....sad.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:16pm Jan:

great atmosphere floating into my evening living room, Amsterdam 21:16
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I wanted to make a "Long Long Long" joke but felt it was in poor taste, so I will refrain.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:17pm gerardo:

hi, irwin!
delightful 'long, long, long' version
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:17pm Chris:

Only those who are sad are not happy...
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:18pm Jan:

Indeed, a great Long long long... This week George H. would become 67
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:18pm Bad Ronald:

@ Gerardo - I concur
@ DCE - Do tell...
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:21pm PMD:

@ Parq. no snow here. unless you count the powder type
@ Jeff, I take the 5th
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:22pm PMD:

as in sniff sniff
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:22pm Jan:

Is Irwin always talking so slowly? Or is that part of the gimmick?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:23pm Lizardner Dave:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:23pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

he's on a high horse or something
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:24pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

...and the high horse is on a soapbox...
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:24pm Chris:

JAn - I think Irwin was speaking at 33 rpms when he was supposed to speak at 45 rpms...fmu djs do it all the time
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:24pm Jan:

Is he always like that?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:25pm Irwin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:26pm Irwin:

I don't
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:26pm Irwin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:26pm Irwin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:26pm Irwin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:27pm Jan:

I only used to listen to Laura Cantrell, but I suppose you are right; it seems to be part of the anti-style. But the music is good, especially at night (which it is here)
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:27pm Irwin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:28pm Jan:

@Irwin: okay, you made your point and how funny you are!!! ;-) Cheers! (keep it up!)
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:28pm Chris:

No style - they just forget to shift the rpms sometimes.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:28pm Irwin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:30pm Jan:

@ Irwin: really not cynical, Irwin, but what are you doing in daily life?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Jan, I think he's a highly-paid hand model.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:34pm Jan:

I'm sure he will solve the mystery
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:35pm Chris:

I think he's a competitive speed skater.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:36pm Jeff from St. Paul:

According to my internet research, Irwin is a Hang-gliding Sniper for the Swedish Military.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh NO!~
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:37pm Jan:

Hahaha, Jeff must be right. You can't make something like this up.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:37pm PMD:

Irwin's short.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:38pm gerardo:

i was waiting for amanda!!!
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:38pm Devin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:39pm Amanda Fan Club:

Hope this one is on the swag CD!
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:39pm Lizardner Dave:


  Wed. 2/24/10 3:39pm Chris:

Irwin was also a founding member of the symbionese liberation army
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:40pm gerardo:

amanda reminds me of petra haden's who album
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:41pm bennett4senate:

Irwin works in the bet-taking booth at Aqueduct racetrack
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:43pm Laura L:

In daily life Irwin is a tedious ideologue. Christgau blew his cover years ago in the Village Voice. The pay is lousy, but it's not about the money. That's the kind of guy Irwin is!
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:43pm A:

Okay, Irwin, you win.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:43pm Jeff from St. Paul:

More research in - says his code name is: "Agent Ice Wing"
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:44pm Irwin:

everyone's gotta have a hustle, LL.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:45pm Spinal Tap Fans:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

there's a bustle in my hedgerow, though.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:45pm Devin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 3:46pm Jan:

@ Irwin: Hey, I see on your website that you are into R. Scott. Can we have one by the Dutch 'Wooden Indians'?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

there's this kids' show my kid watches called "I'm in the Band" that is totally based on Spinal Tap...and it's pretty damn funny too.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:48pm Looms:

Spinal Tap is the best metal band ever!
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:48pm gerardo:

what about the rutles?. they predated spinal tap, right?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:49pm bartelby:

No complaints about the monologue here
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

he could probably go a LITTLE faster...
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:50pm Jan:

@ Irwin: yeah! Otherwise I don't remember the beginning of your sentence before you end it.
@gerardo: Yes, the Rutles rule! They even influenced the Beatles (a little group from Liverpool Merseyside)
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:50pm Chris:

Is Irwin always talking so fast? Or is that part of the gimmick?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:51pm Jan:

It's so fast I hardly could follow...
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:54pm Jan:

But Irwin, have to say the music is great.
But by talking so fast, does that mean that today's show will be shorter than usual?
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:56pm Jeff from St.Paul:

If he goes to fast the DJ Police are going to be sticking their nose into things.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:56pm FCC:

Mr. DJ,
Please moderate your voice so ALL can enjoy.
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:57pm gerardo:

yeah, jan: 'let it rot!' ;)
  Wed. 2/24/10 3:58pm Jan:

indeed, gerardo: do I have to spell it out;
c h e e s e a n d o n i o n s
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:00pm gerardo:

oh, no! ?, lol
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:01pm Chris:

It all goes back to Blind Lemon Pie down in Mississippi.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:02pm Indiana Jordan:

I say you did it correctly.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:02pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

spellcheck and google done TOOK YER JOB
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:02pm Ghost of Ricky Medlock:

At my company, it would work fine the way you wrote it
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:03pm Jan:

What was that all about? I'm no editor...
so at least the other 3,4 listeners should be
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:03pm north guinea hills:

serial ,,,,,,,,,,,,'s don't taste like cocoa puffs.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:04pm Ike:

I like serial commas, but I've never seen MM&W with any commas. I'd probably presume it's as with law firms.

Only 80% underemployed like me? Really?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:05pm bennett4senate:

did i just hear cussing or am I slipping into coffee-withdrawl end of the day passout land (prob both)
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:08pm Mark:

Irwin, I'm an actual editor and (sadly) do pay attention to such things from time to time. In a case like this I guess I'd be guided by MMW's own preference, which seems to be in favor of law firm style ("Medeski Martin & Wood"), though you could also argue against using the ampersand. Alternatively, we could ask ourselves "What Would Andy Breckman Do"?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:08pm Amanda Fan Club:

I wish I WAS getting plastered with Miss Amanda
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:08pm Ken:

If we were just talking about the three guys as individuals, The New Yorker style would be Medeski, Martin, and Wood. But if they call their group Medieski Martin & Wood, you gotta go with that.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:09pm Chris:

Modeski Martin's Wood is where I buy all my lumber.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:09pm John McCabe in LA:

she has a point about the toilet seat you know
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:15pm Lizardner Dave:

Why isn't Irwin talking right now? Is that part of the gimmick? And I am not bored, but I am waiting.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:19pm Lizardner Dave:

But seriously...one question I have never had answered is this: if I dump my whole pledge during say, Irwin's show but ask for DJ premiums from other shows as well, does Irwin get all the "credit" or is the "credit' distributed among all the shows from which I have requested premiums?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:21pm PMD:

and I've always wondered, what does "credit" do? help the dj keep the show?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:22pm Irwin:

All will be revealed in the Apocrypha, my flock.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:22pm eric:

So is Amanda the love child of Irwin and Debbie Gibson? That would explain a lot.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:23pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think of the "credit" as a reward for a job well done---that's why I give lots of small amounts to many different djs. Let them know how much you love them and all that shite.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:24pm Ike:

LD, both get credited on the air (DJs from whom you requested premiums get the infamous "green card" to thank you aloud in the second week). Behind the scenes -- I have no idea. I don't think it matters. They just throw all the money in a big giant cauldron and then Ken rolls around in it.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:25pm Sarah Palin:

I'm so excited about the marathon I keep crappin' my pants!!!
- TODD!!! Get me some god damn paper towels again!!!
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:26pm Ike:

PMD, no, if that were the case then almost no new show would ever last and Kenny G. would never have stayed on for so long. ;)
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:29pm PMD:

@ Ike, that's what I thought. but I guess bragging rights are a big deal...
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

damn I wonder how many times this loop is gonna run...
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:31pm Al G. Braic:

If a swag train leaves Orange, NJ, traveling at X mph, while Irwin collects Y pledge apples from Y(z) listeners, what is the coefficent of the credit distribution ratio, and is one the loneliest number, or in Da Nang is it Thieu? Show your work.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:32pm Irwin:

@DCE: All will be revealed in the Apocrypha.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:35pm Ike:

Aw hell, I used both "big" and "giant" to modify the same word. Lame. No wonder nobody has hired me as a real editor again. ;P
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:38pm Jan:

Come on, Irwin. You're a music lover, and you also play exiting collages, but please don't play retro live-versions by Sir Paul that are weak shadows of his own original creations.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:39pm Lizardner Dave:

Thanks Ike. The marathon falls during a particularly busy work time for me and I usually only have time to make one lump sum pledge instead of doing the build-up-to-the-total thing (though I did throw in a little extra during the Sinfonia last year when it was apparent we were going to miss the goal).
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:39pm Chris:

All right, The Final 'Mats (as we fans call them)!!!
Play the whole song man!!
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:43pm Jan:

oops... I seemed to have listened to 2 webstations at the same time for a while, while thinking it was some sort of collage.
(and he went back to the corner and didn't speak another word...)
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

don't slink away, Jan, that was real.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:47pm a guy in a chair in a cube:

@Jan I love it when that happens. Or when im browsing and some ad starts making noise that somehow goes with the music. Or when the web stream starts fucking up during Scott Williams show and I think its just Scott doing his thing (a whole show went by like that once).
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:48pm peteonrepeat:

I need some of this!
but he dont exist!?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:48pm a guy in a chair in a cube:

or when the voices in my head sing harmony parts...
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:50pm Jan:

Yep, it was very strange indeed! Earlier on there were some Beatles in the background during these Amanda tracks. But then I visited someone's Hyves (which is a Dutch equivalent of Facebook) who had Beatle-tracks embedded in his site. And it really fitted in with Piazzolla
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:51pm ginger tim:

Here's another Virgin O'Riley
Well, my guess is they are all virgins, anyway.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:51pm Chris:

who doesn't exist P? God, Sasquatch or Irwin?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

let me be clear. Day in the Life WAS playing during the guitar loop thing and Amanda was there too. I saw her.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:53pm Jan:

but you didn't hear Michelle, did you?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:53pm a guy in a chair in a cube:

I think pete was reffering to Ken DeFeudis.

I'm just trying to think of a good pun for the name DeFeudis. Seems there should be one.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

no, Michelle was not there.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:54pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Has WFMU ever gotten in trouble for bootlegging?
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:54pm Ken DeFeudis:

Pete says i don't exist, but I DeFeudis.
  Wed. 2/24/10 4:55pm Jan:

Oh, I love music from the 78rpm era...incl. Japanese, but I suppose that it will cost too many stamps to send it all the way to Holland? More 78's on my website www.78rpm.hovers.nl
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:03pm Chris:

Did I just switch to NPR?
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:03pm peteonrepeat:

pleased to meet you Ken
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:06pm peteonrepeat:

let me introduce you to biffo von swinehausen's rendition of 'Crazy'
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:13pm Peteski:

what did I miss?
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:23pm Devin:

  Wed. 2/24/10 5:25pm Jeff from St.Paul:

USA 2 - Switzerland 0: FINAL
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:27pm Jan:

@Peteski: Well, you did miss a make-over of our DJ, starting of very slowly but soon after speeding things up. But by now it's bedtime at this side of the ocean (23:25). I wish you all a great continuing programme. With many thanks to Irwin.
And please Irwin, let me flatter you, because I would love to win the Koichi Sugii Salon Music CD. Enjoy and till next time collages.
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:28pm Bad Ronald:

@ Irwin - Did the cashew taste like Ken's heels?
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:29pm Laura L:

If it was a salted cashew, that's ok. Unsalted, a faux pas!
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:29pm Mark:

I appreciate Jessica! But she does disturb me.
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:44pm Laura L:

Thanks for this one too--the live version they did of "Lamplight" at Maxwell's was spectacular.
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:51pm Jan:

the ambient late night feel of the last few songs is preventing me from ending the day.
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:55pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Big news! Pantera to release Cowboys From Hell, Vulgar Display of Power, and Far Beyond Driven on 180 Gram Vinyl! They come out on Record Store day, get in line!
  Wed. 2/24/10 5:59pm Jan:

Thanks, Irwin! I had a great night listening to many various types of exiting music.
PS: the tempo of talking was just fine at the end
  Wed. 2/24/10 9:52pm RSTVMO:

Big news! Pantera to release Cowboys From Hell, Vulgar Display of Power, and Far Beyond Driven on 180 Gram Vinyl! They come out on Record Store day, get in line!
