Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/9/11 3:03pm Listening Out There:

"roach motel for ideas" <== I'm filing THAT one away!
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

You know, they make glove (left ones, too) that are less noisy than this...
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:07pm Cecile:

Aw, Savage Aural Hotbed. Minneapolis's own! Thanks for playing that, Irwin.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

feeling a little noisy today, Irwin?
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:08pm Parq:

Whoa, Don Brockway died? Aw man, condolences, Irwin. I know how much he meant to you. Through you, I'd gotten to see or hear some of his work (his Shaggs audio documentary comes to mind), and I always dug it.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:18pm jan:

I was just getting ready to write how much I like If by Yes . I just saw your note for Don. When did he pass?
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Watch that Capitain guys, Gilligan and the Skipper were only supposed to be leading a "three hour" tour themselves!
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:20pm Wikipedia:

Please elaborate on Don Brockway. If he was so significant, how come I haven't heard of him?
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:22pm ginger tim:

@wiki: because you never read http://030726d.netsolhost.com/WordPress/
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:22pm "Historic Downtown Jersey City":

historic = broken down beyond all recognition
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:25pm tr:sh:

A wikipedia entry doesn't equal significance. And a lack thereof doesn't translate to insignificance.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:26pm hank:

  Wed. 2/9/11 3:27pm dan:

  Wed. 2/9/11 3:33pm Wikipedia:

I so want to enjoy that blog, but a blog is inadmissible for Wikipedia...must...resist...
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:33pm Mike East:

so does that mean I MAY be significant? All this time, I thought nobody cared.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Lee Morgan, twice is nice!
(But three, is glee!)
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:33pm Wackypedia:

We however have articles on EVERYthing.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:34pm Facebook:

@Wikipedia: Pfft.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:35pm Uncyclopedia:

I can start a completely unrealistic article on Don Brockway, all I need to know is what he ISN'T.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:35pm tr:sh:

Don't ask a statistician unless you're feeling at least 95% confident. Some won't look at you unless you're 99%. Beyond that hard-core direction, isn't it all relative?
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:36pm Google:

@Mike East: Don't get your hopes up, buddy. You're lucky to get some playlist results in a "site:wfmu.org". Get some paid ads and we'll talk.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:36pm Bruno:

A friend of mine gave me this radio link just few minutes ago, i clicked, and tada! Lee Morgan on the rock with The Gigolo, my preferred! Wonderful! Great!
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:38pm tr:sh:

+ 'Compared to what ?!'
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, what kind of accordion music is this? Northern Spanish? Fusion of different things? I'm intrigued, it's quite lovely.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:43pm Wackypedia:

Attention? What's attention?
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:43pm autodidactic:

If I were listening I'd be insulted by what you just said.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:44pm aaron in chicago:

"Ioaeoe" looks like what I get whenever I play scrabble
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

All this praise for that one listener paying attention -- I oughta confront him or her, if only I knew what their name is or where they're from.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:46pm Wackypedia:

My mom "liked" Perry Como.

My dad called him "that sawed off shrimp hole".
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks for introducing me to Marching Band, Swedish pop rock perfection!
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:51pm Republic of Pinkingshear National Gallery of Art:

Dear Uncle Irwin/Ol Pal,

We are listening to you here too. Love always...
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:51pm noah:

feels like days since I last heard a straight forward, fairly recent pop song on this station.
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:55pm Wackypedia:

"Dandelions" by Dandelions from Dandelions

  Wed. 2/9/11 3:57pm Steve Stephens:

I'm still thinking about that Lee Morgan tune...
  Wed. 2/9/11 3:57pm Eponymous:

I'm talented that way.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:00pm PugGupPup:

The url did not work..
@youtube..STEVIE RIKS:Teach Yourself George Harrison
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:00pm still b/p:

So was that a 3D or a D3 (cubed) playlist entry? I ain't got the special glasses anyway.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Is that "Bix Beiderbecke" composition from the Ragtime era? It sounds so fresh and later 20th century!
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well I missed a whole bunch of show thanks to WORK infringing on my FMU-time.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:03pm Work:

  Wed. 2/9/11 4:05pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

fire me beotch
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: This wouldn't have to happen if we got PAID to listen to FMU! Or, have some bills cancelled. Either way works for me.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:08pm Work:

Typing the email now. Check your inbox in 5.

See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya!

Luv, Work
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:10pm hank:

"They sing while yous slave " butm i just get bored....
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:10pm Lizardner Dave:

This song makes me want to do the robot.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:10pm Lizardner Dave:

This song makes me want to do the robot.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:11pm Lizardner Dave:

I did not post that twice. The system is down, yo.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:14pm The System:

Dave is a klutzy blameshifter.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:17pm FEMA:

Considering the 7SD fiasco with the failed connection and excessive cursing on the recording, we're standing by with the NYFD, preparing rescue from this man-made disaster at the UCB Theater; please stay away from that area from 6 to 7 tonight.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:18pm tr:sh:

Bleep that, you mother-bleeper!
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

It's you, Irwin! And the MEDIA! You ARE putting ideas in my head! I'm so angry I could just run from Virginia to the UCB Theater, in spite of official advisories against going there.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:21pm Matt from Springfield, 1 mile from work:

(huff, huff) Couldn't make it, reality got in the way. I'll just have to listen to more of your sinister ideas for the next 99 minutes or so.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:25pm 7SD Audience Member:

It's fire... and it's crashing! It's crashing terrible! Oh, my! Get out of the way, please! It's burning and bursting into flames and the... This is terrible, this is the one of the worst catastrophes in the world. It's smoke, and it's in flames now, and the frame is crashing to the ground. Oh, the humanity! And everyone screaming. I told you, it—I can't even talk to people, their friends are out there! Ah! It's... it... it's a... ah! I... I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest: it's just laying there, mass of smoking wreckage. Ah! And everybody can hardly breathe and talk and the screaming.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:27pm A Confused Andy B.:

What's the big deal? I thought that was a FAIRLY good zinger at least...and Ken can surely hit the dump button on that...
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:28pm A Confused Andy B.:

It certainly isn't 100% my fault...
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Thomas!
The time is right, for a Thomas Beatles Re-Writing Re-Vival!
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:29pm hank:

lisetnerville Pop 1..
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:30pm Cheri Pi:

I HATE the beatles but I love this Thomas guy.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Thomas is unique.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:31pm Yair Yona:

go go Thomas
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:33pm Place Your Bets:

What do you think are the odds that these recordings were done on the advice of a 70s therapist, to overcome "Thomas" personal issues?
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:35pm Stanley:

Ok, Irwin, I think we get it.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

As I suggested last week, maybe "Thomas" was the guy who broke up with other found-sound legend the "Closet Queen"!
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:35pm Julie:

what possesses someone to MAKE a recording like this?
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:36pm Julie:

@Matt Ah I remember the closet queen.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:36pm SolarFlares:

Thomas is killin' it softly. So good.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:36pm Paul McC:

Glad to see we've finally done some good in the world.

All you need is therapy, therapy
Therapy is all you need
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:37pm Slave:

Irwin, I forgot our 'safe' word... but whatever it is, I'd like to use it.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:37pm jack:

thomas skelter!
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:37pm aaron in chicago:

this coldplay cover (remix?) sounds like Microsoft Songsmith output
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:38pm Father Merrin:

I can help.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:38pm Waiting on Hold for IT:

I've heard this before somewhere
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:39pm Music Wrestler:

I just had a vision of Gwyneth Paltrow on a warm caribbean evening getting a little 'crazy' on the dance floor after a couple of fruity organic cocktails...
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:39pm jack:

in an elevator
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:39pm Billy Swan:

I can help.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:40pm Music Wrestler:

Frankly it frightened me.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie!
When you first started listening to Irwin, didn't he still have that "Incorrect Music" show? That's something that should be revived as a fill-in, though I guess he just did that with "Like Radio, Only Worse".
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:41pm Nearosmith:

Jack in an elevator..
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down...
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:41pm The Ghost of Brockway Past:

If only I'd learned how to spell "committee" before my death, I couild have died happy.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:42pm aaron in chicago:

get me on the first ship to alpha centauri
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:42pm Lizardner Dave:

Sophie Tucker died 45 years ago today. Somebody check on the Old Codger.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:44pm Old Codger Patrol:

He's out buying Viagara, and getting his bifocals repaired so he can look at dirty pictures.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:45pm Old Nick:

No one escapes the pitchfork, in the end.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:45pm Republic of Pinkingshear National Gallery of Art:

Clearly Thomas is the fifth Beatle the ruling elite doesn't want us to know about.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:50pm elevator:

leave me out of this.
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:55pm hank:

couple of crown royals plz>..
  Wed. 2/9/11 4:57pm Julie:

@Matt I liked Incorrect Music, but he always has some of that stuff on the show anyhow. I do miss gender bias. And I've told him that repeatedly.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:03pm nestor:

  Wed. 2/9/11 5:03pm Norwalk Peeps:

What a freakin curmudgeon.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:04pm Handsome Harry:

Jazz Brunches do not sound like a very good time, even with bottomless Beermosas.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:05pm Georgia Saltine:

no brunch! only beer-unch.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:05pm Listening Out There:

Rainy day...
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:05pm aaron in chicago:

why not call it junch
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:05pm ginger tim:

The sunday brunch at Cajun was good. I miss Cajun (16th st & 8th ave. nyc iirc)
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:06pm DC:

Jazz Brunch is the taste of surprise.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:12pm Mat:

Thnx Irwin for the Jimi! that was a great jam..
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:12pm it's because:

dual layer break problems got nothin on me..
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:14pm Mat:

i was going to comment earlier but couldnt get passed the math question....
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:15pm PMD:

Dagnabit! I missed most of your show.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:15pm Baby Jesu:

Represent, dude!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:17pm Listening Out There:

Got Mormon If You Want It
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:18pm Parq:

The incomparable Wooshie ...
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:23pm Satan:

Evil is chipper!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:24pm Republic of Pinkingshear National Gallery of Art:

Wooshie and Thomas perform their Beatles renditions on Tuesday nights in front of Go Go Curry. 50¢ suggested donation.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Georges Méliès! "Shoot me to the moon...."

I've seen Gender Bias in older Irwin playlists, but besides female artists, was there any unifying theme or genre of music each set, or was it whichever female artists Irwin decided to play? Muriel's Treasure looks pretty good as well! Old school calypso!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:33pm PMD:

62 is young. Sorry!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:34pm Laura Lindgren:

Thanks, Irwin, for the photo of Don. And thanks for what you are doing right now. He is so terribly missed. Any listeners not familiar--seek out his blog, Isn't Life Terrible--you are in for many wonderful reads.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:36pm Parq:

Oh my good goodness, it's Judson!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:38pm Matt from Springfield:

I think I know where this is going...if Judson's who I think you've played before!!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

YES! Judson indeed!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:40pm Julie:

@Matt Muriel's was good, I don't remember a theme to the Gender Bias set, but I could be wrong.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:42pm Mike East:

That sounds kinda like Jimmy Muccio.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:46pm Oct. 30, 1995 in History:

Quebec independentists narrowly lost a referendum for a mandate to negotiate independence from Canada. Canadian "Old Codger Show" listeners stayed home to hear this skit, tipping the election.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:46pm chris:

please play some AMANDA. sincredibly, the volunteers upstairs. thank you.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:47pm maybe:

when he's done vacuuming, chris...
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:48pm Republic of Pinkingshear National Gallery of Art:

Can someone help? I'm stuck in the elevator.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:49pm Parq:

This is even better than I remember it.
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:52pm jan:

I remember hearing this radio drama back when. What I hadn't realized until today was that the Cldger was the only performer who acted his role; the others only read their lines. Bravo Codger!
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

And you say Judson and Sandor haven't been heard from since this? Such brilliant "drammers"! If the Old Codger has re-surfaced, maybe he knows where to find them...
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:54pm Alternate Title:

Katy Don't Lose That 212 Number
  Wed. 2/9/11 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Hmm, what a satisfying show today--no Amanda, but with Judson, lots of incorrect music and pop rock, I think if there's going to be a show without Amanda, this is the one.
  Wed. 2/9/11 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice way to send Don off with such a funny piece written by him!
Have a good night everyone!
