Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/14/10 3:03pm Carmichael:

Ya, baby.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my Gramps used to tell me how they'd go out dancing when the Paul Whiteman Orchestra was in town...
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:08pm if because:

edge of my seat..
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:11pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Love this Paul Whiteman track, Irwin.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:13pm Explanation Mark:

What a lovely Brox Set indeed.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:16pm north guinea hills:

I'd be happy listening to more 78's, especially when others play them for me. It's a lot of effort to play 78's when they're a multi-set. It's worse then playing a symphony via 45's. that, and i seem to break a 78 every so often.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:21pm north guinea hills:

wow, let me retype. " IT'S LIKE PLAYING a symphony via 45's".

needs me some more green tea....
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

I've really taken to Marco Benevento since I heard him on this show.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:25pm ginger tim:

Benevento will be playing for free at Celebrate Borooklyn in Prospect Park:
August 6
House of Usher: Marco Benevento
White Magic
7:30PM/gates 6:30PM
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:25pm Explanation Mark:

HI and Bye Irwin!!! The Sunset down on the beach beckons. Have a good one.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Encroaching waters? Any other details, like from which direction, and what kind of water? Or is it a warning that John Waters is filming in Monmouth Co., and things might be getting weird.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:34pm PMD:

Oh dear, I read that as rectal amusement.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:50pm PMD:

Irwin, is it the climb?
Hope you're doing well.
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:54pm Vicki:

yes it is
  Wed. 7/14/10 3:54pm Savory c:

sweet ride!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:17pm blue woogy:

loving the tame impala
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:24pm north guinea hills:

I love love love lush's gala! even made a shirt of the album when i was in high school!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm going back to this archive to scavenge for good band/album names that Irwin just sounded off. (For starters, you can't go wrong with "House of Dumbass")
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:31pm Irwin:

Here's the rest:
Blather Shack
Hipsters Hideaway
Noise Nook
Self-Indulgence Palace
Record Spa
Castle of Over-Rated Navel-Gazers
House of Dumbass
Non-Sequitur Factory
Woeful Hippie Corner
Island of Marginalized Souls
Arrested Adolescent Retreat
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow! Thanks Irwin!
Btw, "Record Spa" or "Self-Indulgence Palace" would also work for very awesome vinyl album shops.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Or I guess they would all work for vinyl shops as well, particular the kind where the staff are all being "ironic".
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:35pm Lizardner Dave:

Irwin's list sounds like what Andy would suggest as a list of titles for Ken's morning show.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

those ladies in the car get hotter everytime I come back to this page
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:38pm Lizardner Dave:

DCE, your monitor is on fire.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:39pm Happy Listener:

Awesome playlist as always, Irwin. I'm just amazed that there's someone else out there whose tastes stretch from Lush to Deep Purple
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

how about Paul Whiteman to Deep Purple?
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:41pm Happy Listener:

That's nice, too, I suppose. I've also heard a lot of Martin Hannett stuff here, too. Love it.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:43pm Happy Listener:

Irwin was my WFMU gateway DJ, in the final seasons of Incorrect Music.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:46pm Shes a man:

  Wed. 7/14/10 4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

The Lady returns, featuring the late George Harrison!!!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Amanda had friends! wow!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:47pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Happy Listener, me too!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:47pm Denise in Washington, DC:

BTW, I prefer Amanda's version of this song to Sir Paul's.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:47pm Aharon:

And friends! Thank god. I was worried she was a little isolated.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:47pm if because:

'primitive swagger' ...... shit yes
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:48pm Happy Listener:

: )
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:48pm Steven Gugel:

It's not Sir Paul - It's George.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Friends, in the sense that Jody and Amanda lured neighborhood kids to their house with the promise of starring in home movies (the only house on the block with a video camera; see the Amanda Chronicles).
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:50pm Julie:

You gotta play this when I have company? She must think I'm insane listening to this :P
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:50pm Happy Listener:

My best friend's little sister had a great "misheard lyric" for this song: "I'll get my mom [to] sit on you." She'd sing it whenever it was on the radio.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:50pm ginger tim:

Elektronik Supersonik!! yay fer youtube!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I love kids' versions of what the song SHOULD say!
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:51pm trs:

with her electric boobs
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

eyes more stronger than Darth Vapor
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:53pm yea:

Zladko seems kooler than "Zlad" no.
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Zladko sounds like a manufacturer of Russian garbage bags
  Wed. 7/14/10 4:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Wed. 7/14/10 4:59pm Happy Listener:

Did you know that Deep Purple was originally a committee-selected "boy band"? I was surprised... love the first 3 albums.
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:01pm qwerty:

molvania is a fictional country
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:01pm Irwin:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:16pm ginger tim:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:22pm Amanda Wild Fan:

Pleaseeeeee one more new Amanda track before sign off. I missed the George Harrison cover and she's the only thing that makes my turgid Wednesday work day bearable! :(
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:23pm adnamA:

.gniht roop uoY
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:24pm Amanda Wild Fan:

I wonder if her songs have backwards messages.
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:24pm adnamA:

.swonk ohW
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:26pm Amanda Wild Fan:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! Another original! Oh, and THAT'S where "Primitive Swagger" comes from!
A cookie and a fight, that's Mimi Cookie in a nutshell.
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:29pm Amanda Wild Fan:

These titles are AMAZING!
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:29pm Amanda Wild Fan:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:32pm Matt from Springfield:

A voice that reminds you of Blossom Dearie, no?
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:34pm ginger tim:

10 Baby It's Cold Outside [with maria lorette friis + john parish]
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:34pm Tuffz McGruff:

Marie Lorette Friis is the singer.
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:34pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I actually checked the playlist to see if it *was* Blossom Dearie.
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:36pm Happy Listener:

I hope Amanda chooses to return to goofing around on the mic. She seemed pretty cool in the interview. I think she should take on Vashti Bunyan covers next. : )
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:37pm Todd in Whitehorse:

Is there anywhere to get more info on Amanda? Is that her name "Amanda Wild"?
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:39pm listener:

There were two Irwin shows last year containing considerable interviews with Amanda. They are in his archives. Maybe someone can bother looking up the exact links.
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:39pm Amanda Wild Fan:

I don't know. I just listened to the interviews Irwin did with her and her brother a few weeks ago. Still can't believe the recordings are 20 somthing years old!
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:40pm Todd in Whitehorse:

that's good enough, thanks
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:40pm trs:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:42pm Amanda Wild Fan:

Irwin can u do another interview where listeners get to write in questions for you to ask her
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:47pm Stanley:

Another rockin' show Irwin. Thanks
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:47pm nestor:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:49pm Irwin:

  Wed. 7/14/10 5:49pm listener:

F---in' A, where the f--- is the old f---in' codger, fer f---'s sake
  Wed. 7/14/10 5:53pm nestor:
