Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/23/10 3:01pm Laura L:

My, what big lips that little fly has.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:04pm mb:

Woo Hoo! Marco #1. Great kickoff.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:05pm v k:

much like USA soccer, you're making my day Sir Irwin
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:06pm Mike East:

Marco Benevento was on NPR a few weekends ago. There was an interesting explanation for the title of the record.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:13pm Bad Ronald:

You don't even have to say you've changed as long as you don't smell like you haven't.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:18pm Janet H:

Hello Irwin.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:19pm BSI:

okay, bad ronald, there's a song title for my collection:
...may I?
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:20pm Bad Ronald:

I'd be honored...
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@BSI: do you like off-beat song titles? I have a blog devoted only to off-beat song, album and band names I think of; no one's visited yet (I just found out how to "addurl" to the Google index yesterday), but I encourage people to add their own suggestions in the comments.

  Wed. 6/23/10 3:36pm BSI:

M from S: good stuff there, sir!
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:36pm Tuffz McGruff:

Man, this harmonica song is a TRUE classic.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

The BS of I: Thanks! Hopefully once it's indexed I can get random visitors to stumble across it as well!
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:47pm Laura L:

If memory serves, Larry Adler always referred to the harmonica as the "mouth organ."
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

you know what the original "mouth organ" was? the TONGUE.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow - REALLY diggin' this GHP!

I noticed yesterday that Irwin interviewed GHP on Nov 3, 2004 -- haven't listened to it yet but it's there in the Archives.
  Wed. 6/23/10 3:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's better than GHB, or so I've heard
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:02pm jan:

Stan Kenton: excellent!
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:08pm Looms:

Hello! Glad to hear A Certain Ratio at the very moment i'm tuning in.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Lane's got a good social critique going, a la Ray Davies. It should appear on an album called "Muswell Hillbergs", after Buffalo Springberg is released, that is.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:17pm jan:

I'm Tony Heyward- it this generations Oil Song- like CW McCall's "Convoy."
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:18pm v k:

channeling John and June-Carter, 'Home' seems to be
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:21pm Carmichael:

Aahhh, here's my gal .....
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

I lucked out last week with an Amanda backing track link--does anyone here know the 80s song looped in the background of this one?
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:24pm Some Guy:

"Hot Thing" by Prince
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:24pm Harvey:

This is my first Irwin show in a while... I expected nothing less
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:24pm Choose or Lose:

Amanda or Obama? Amanda.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:25pm Customer:

You can keep the change.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:26pm nestor:

thompson twins...
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:27pm nestor:

right. :) Prince.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:29pm Horatio:

Good afternoon, sweet Prince!
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this Pitchfork buzz band sounds pretty good.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:34pm Mick:

Laryngitis, sorry.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:36pm PMD:

Hi Irwin! Kisses! Miss you!
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Some Guy: You're the greatest! Kevin in BK helped me out last week--I'm trying to zero in on all the non-keyboard demo, non-White Album samples. I'll post the results when I have "Don't Mess With The Power Child" complete.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that seems like a strange goal, but have at it, Matt!
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:41pm Ivy League University:

Matt is bucking to be appointed our first Endowed Chair of Amandology.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks DCE. I've liked Amanda ever since Irwin started to play her, but I wondered what songs were being looped, as they don't really play Billy Idol's "Flesh For Fantasy" (Me At Friday's) or "Hot Thing" on the radio anymore, so I like being enlightened.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

she was both of and ahead of her time, wasn't she?
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:44pm Matt from Springfield:

ILU: OMFG yes! Amanda deserves the respect of a serious discipline. They have hip-hop intellectuals, why not Amanda intellectuals?
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:46pm trs:

I still contend he's that little guy I heard singing just the same in a shoe department at Carleton.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:47pm Noel:

That Crude Spill track deserves to be huge
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:48pm Janekologist:

I've been on the waiting list for an endowed chair for 20 years now.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Amanda is, in a Sartrean, "Blank Generation" context, a stratospheric apotheosis of small-town, bored children-cum-frying pans and synthesizer Punk, brought forth to recognize pop rock, punk, and silliness, and then move past all of them. [323]
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:53pm Monograph Title:

Transgressive Musicological Deconstruction: Amanda and the Escape Velocity of Energy in 1980s Popular Culture
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:54pm (¸.•´ (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

@Noel: Agreed! Found this Crude Spill "video" on the YTube:

@Matt: HA! Ha ha!
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

How do you pronounce (¸.•´ (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:56pm Pronunciation Key:

You pronounce it roughly like an Amanda screech.
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, like Alvin Lee said so long ago, "I'm goin' home!"
  Wed. 6/23/10 4:59pm University of Please Yourself, California:

Hello Matt, thank you for your short dissertation on Amanda, and we have an open position here in the Department of Applied Narcotics, as Dr. Stanley J. Kramerhead III, Jr. is retiring.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:00pm Ivy League U.:

That sounds suspiciously like UC Davis. Or UC Irvine (not Irwin).
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:02pm v k:

RH - i can dig it; anyone else see 'Atoms for Peace' this Spring; i caught night 1 at Roseland in Manhattan; pretty amazing stuff; as progressive an act as i've seen in some time
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:03pm Radiohead:

Karma Police, don't arrest that girl...
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Esteemed UPYC, I am honored to accept your position; my first research project I propose involves an expedition to Mexico, agave, and whatever cannabis or sinsemilla might be procured--
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:05pm UPYC:

Did we forget to mention that we get 350 CV's for every open position?
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:05pm Eek-a-Mouse:

did someone say Sensimilla? geng genga geng geng geng geng
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:09pm Matt from Springfield:

UPYC: I could include, as part of my portfolio submission, buds from Mexico and those from Mendocino, and allow the Dept to "study" the differences.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:10pm UPYC:

Sounds totally dank, dude.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:11pm Carmichael:

Compare and contrast, I always say.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:11pm UPYC:

C/C isn't just for Freshman Composition any more.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:16pm Ismael:

Mark Bolan is the noise.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:17pm Marc:

I'm just a jeepster ricocheting for your love. And my car insurance premium is really, really high.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:18pm Ismael:

sorry, Marc, did I spell your name wrong?
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:18pm PMD:

You just made the show Elizabeth with the comment that you played the song because Irwin hated it and that made you happy.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:19pm Marc:

Yes, you did.

The DJ rocks, but i wouldn't let her drive me home. I'm a slow learner, but I learn.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Welcome Eliza. Don't be nervous, I'm liking your playlist so far.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:20pm Wm.:

GO-GO-GO Eliza! Loved the Eno/Cale and "Spaceball Ricochet"
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:20pm Radiohead:

That's ok, we don't like Irwin either. If we knew who he was, we wouldn't, we mean.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:20pm chris:

Eliza, keep playing bands Irwin hates; you're doing great!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:21pm Ismael:

is a spaceball like a planet?
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:21pm john:

awesome job so far! rockin.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:22pm jeff-m:

  Wed. 6/23/10 5:24pm PMD:

Oops, sorry, Eliza.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:25pm Ismael:

I think it's near the Mambo Sun, where the Planet Queen does her Cosmic Dancing. yeuh.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:26pm trs:

I fondly remember that first time live radio mic feeling.
You can try and adapt the visualize everyone in their underwear public speaking trick and imagine you're talking to a music-friend.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:27pm bradd in spokane:

Eliza, good stuff so far. Thanks. Go Eno, Shudder to Think, etc., etc. Ooo...Black Country Rock!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! Old school Bowie! First time I've ever heard "Black Country Road" on the radio.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:28pm Bowie:

or, Rock, either.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Oops, Black Country Rock!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:29pm Aladdin Insane:

Who you callin' Black?
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:31pm chuck in ct:

thanks for the eno /cale song ...love john cale....one of my musical heros for decades./////he is also a great producer .....stooges,nico,etc......i was suprised to see how old he is now ,,,but hes still great,,,,and so is this show
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:31pm Your DJ Types:

technical difficulties... sorry david bowie is all over the place
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:32pm Joe:

Eliza, you're a glam fan! Very nice. Enjoying the show!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:32pm Mott:

Shout out to all the Young Dudettes!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:33pm Joe:

And to Mary, too (hi, Mary!)
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

I would now trust Eliza to provide fantastic "Twin Spins". I think you've won over Irwin's audience in less than 20 minutes, Eliza!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:33pm Carmichael:

I'd panic too if I was in Detroit <rimshot>!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:34pm 104.3:

Hey, give us our artist list back, you!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:36pm will:

That whole MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD record is monster from start to finish. Best rock guitar ever, not to mention stun-bass of the highest order. "All the Madmen" and "Running Gun Blues" are right up there in the heaviest 100 songs of all time IMO.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:37pm Carmichael:

I love Ray Davies' world-weariness. "I vant to be alone ...."
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:38pm Mary Wing:

I'm not in the studio, Joe. I think the "Your DJ Types" is still in the enter text field on the studio computer. :-)
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:39pm Tuffz McGruff:

Great news, guys. I finally got that pesky nose hair!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:40pm Nose hair:

Pesky? It's your nosehair scissors that are pesky.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:41pm joe cheese:

bump, set and spike.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:41pm Tuffz McGruff:

Why You I Outta!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:43pm Nose hair:

Yeah Tuffz, yank us hard. That'll teach us.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:45pm Marc:

I always composed best in the loo. Ride a White John.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:45pm joe cheese:

tuffz i'm just a jeepster for your nosehair scissors
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:48pm jeff-m:

nice , never heard this version before
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:48pm joe cheese:

  Wed. 6/23/10 5:50pm wilbur twinhorse:

"valium woulda helped that fast'! no time to head to harlem. have a glass of wine and enjoy the show eliza. we like it here in northern virginia, hot, hot, hot.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Are you in N. Virginia, wilbur? Is it not on the verge of spontaneously combusting here because it's so hot! A glass of native Virginia Viognier is most refreshing on such a day.
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

All The Young Dudettes! She's taking requests from Mott (see above)!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:54pm Stanley:

Roxy Music?
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:55pm Spaceman:

That weren't no DJ that was hazy cosmic jive! Excellent!
  Wed. 6/23/10 5:55pm Ismael:
