  Wed. 6/8/11 3:01pm Sean Daily:


Also... Second comment! Woo hoo
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

...like scraping plaque from my arteries...
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:02pm Joe Bacon:

  Wed. 6/8/11 3:04pm Kimono Bono:

foiled again, Sean Daily
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:05pm M.E. Smith:

Bring it on-uh.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: The last time you can do that (at least until Fall) and have it still make sense.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:05pm Lizardner Dave:

Please call Stella.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:06pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sing it more like Jim Morrison
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: Speaking of which, we haven't heard an Irwin-Kenny transition for a while. Bring THAT on!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:07pm Joe Bacon:

Is Irwin channeling Mike Douglas?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:07pm M.E. Smith:

Show's over-uhh
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

It's your favorite, DCE!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:07pm jojo:

kenny blossoms more and more every week
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

mixed with Ariel Pink??
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:08pm Handsome Harry:

Tul-lis! Tul-lis Tul-lis! The anticipation is killing me.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Ariel Pink, Uziel Blue, what's the diff?

@DCE 3:06: This is the end...the END of Kurt's SHOW, the END...Kurt? Yes Irwin? I (bleeeeep...)
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:09pm jason:

an all time favorite!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ok, Matt, that one had me laughing!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I guess I could've just posted "LOL" but that seems so trite anymore
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:12pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

LOL has OIU (outlasted its usefulness)
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, thanks! Irwin should make a guest appearance on a non-FCC web stream, that could be electric!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:12pm OMG:

  Wed. 6/8/11 3:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Jason, looking forward to Sun Araw--about 10:30ish?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:15pm jason:

DCE it'll probably start closer to 10!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

I caught "Is that all there is to a fire?" in there--check out the supremely weird cover of "Is That All There Is?" performed by the New Wave artist Cristina--Julie played that on Dark Night of the Soul, May 24th--I highly rec!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:18pm John McCabe in L.A.:

what's everybody eating today? I'm eating leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes how about you?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

funny, I was just gnawing on a ballerina stuffed with pretzels
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:19pm Mike East:

leftover beans and rice with salad
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Turkey and swiss with spicy mustard.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:24pm Joe Bacon:

In honor of Anthony Weiner, I had breakfast at Pink's Hot Dogs...
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:24pm Ike:

I'm eating imminent unemployment. The invisible hand of the market just served up a hot piping "elimination of business division." But the new owner of this division... likes me? I think? And might bring me over? Still, this tastes bad.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

WHICH Hunt Suite for WWIII???
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:26pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

good luck, Ike. Corporate America will eat you if they get the chance.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: ooof, uncertainty always tastes sour. Hope all goes well with that.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:26pm Robert:

When you play pretty music, what do you expect the comments to be about? Those of us just enjoying the pretty music are...just enjoying the pretty music. It was pretty, and it was music. The Silent Majority likes.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Or lacking that, something else good goes well very soon after.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Joe Bacon: Wow! Hopefully you covered that weiner with tighty whiteys!
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: I wasn't aware this was a cover the first time I heard it on your premium. Do you have the original (apparently acoustic) version by Jeffrey Lewis?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, Robert implied that Ariel Pink was "pretty music"...
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:29pm Das:

I was sitting on a patio when Lee Morgan popped into my head and I realized it was 3:00 and I was very late coming back from lunch. Irwin saves the day again.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:30pm rst-wiley:

First icy summer smoothie over here. Mango, berries + yesterday's tea and a couple dabs of yogurt n' tofu. Cinnamon some brown sugar for a bit of kick. Blended over the same ice tray bounty that I've been tossing at squirrels digging up planted greens.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:31pm Robert:

What, is "pretty music" code language now for "Arab terrorism"?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:32pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Loaf out loud
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Well, that could explain the CIA's new "Pretty Music Daily Report", put together by the "WFMU Analysis Office"
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

MB! Always a treat.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:33pm moose:

(got here late)
addressing matt from springfield:
everything by cristina (monet) is terrific and twisted
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, rst-wiley implied that he throws ice cubes at squirrels...
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:34pm Joe Bacon:

Matt, I had two Pink's Chili Dogs and their famous fries. The only tighty whities were the napkins...
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:35pm rst-wiley:

And.. ?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:35pm The NSA, Yes, that NSA:

Type a little louder Mr. from Springfield.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

how effective is that?
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

T-H-E! N-E-W! C-I-A! R-E-P-O-R-T...
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@NSA: Wait, hold on a sec...

  Wed. 6/8/11 3:38pm rst-wiley:

They don't like it and run away regardless of my aim.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

answering moose:
Yes! Cristina instantly appealed to me, I hoping they play more of her album soon.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:38pm Patient LOL:

In ten years, I'll be so 90s and so retro-in again.
  Wed. 6/8/11 3:39pm Robert:

  Wed. 6/8/11 4:04pm ben drinken:

wonder if anyone has ever done a mash up or whatever you call it with wfmu dj's just saying "and before that, and before that, and before that" I'm sure others have thought of this like me or have actually done one up. consider an entire hour dedicated to nothing but wfmu djs just saying...before that...and before that. for a whole hour!!!would be painful wouldn't it!!!
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@RSTVMOSHOW: I just came across the cover of "Mr. Snuggles" you did with Michelle Boule...very nice. Have you ever considered doing Ron Griffin's "Your Love Is Real" in a 80s "Arena Rock" style, like the band Asia?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:06pm Robert:

Is ben drinken related to Kenny G?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:06pm Beef, or that:

I'd be for that.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:06pm rst-wiley:

  Wed. 6/8/11 4:10pm Robert:

I thought it was, "I see you[r] $81 million". License poker taken to the extreme.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:13pm rst-wiley:

Room number at the hospital during a dicey stay.
In the ICU -- 81M.

Only Amanda has the GUTS as a performer to add blender noise to her songs.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:18pm Tom Lehrer:

There's two things of which you must beware--
Don't drink the water and don't breathe the air!
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:18pm Appliance Museum:

An 80s blender, at that.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:18pm Das:

I agree. From now on I'm getting all my new recipes from Amanda songs.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:18pm Robert:

Darn. I had to make a phone call regarding the field work, and I hung up too soon to COMPLETELY miss Amanda.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:19pm ScottC:

right there you know Amanda was impersonating a kid " clean up your mess and then you can drink it"? never in a million years...
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:20pm RSTVMOSHOW:

amanda just called. duhhrrr.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:21pm Benny Shunt:

What did we do to deserve Brad Paisley?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:21pm Robert:

Last time I used a blender (an inherited Osterizer) it was to make rocket fuel. Well, propellant, technically. They're called blender rockets. You dissolve KNO3 in boiling water, put it in the blender, add sulfur and briquet charcoal and keep blending until way past smooth, then pour into the engine cases.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:21pm Juarez Resident:

The water is fine. What we say is don't get shot or beheaded. Don't die, basically.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:22pm Robert:

You mean, Don't Get Killed?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:22pm Carmichael:

this one time when i was in the service we had a training and everyone always had to sign in on a clip board that they were there. one goof ball buddy put down Ben D. Banana. The 1st sergeant was puerto rican. at the end of the training he held everyone there until someone confesses to putting Ben D Banana. He had a thick puerto rican accent "who eeece theece ben d banana" and when no one answered he kept saying it faster. and it ended up sounding like spanish. like...bendeebananadebendeebanana..after awhile to us anyway.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:24pm RSTVMOSHO:

Thurston just called.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:25pm RSTVMOSHO:

That's one small step for Amanda, one 'iant leap for Mankind.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:25pm JR:

Dying and being killed is the same thing. Who dies of natural causes?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:26pm Appliance Museum:

There's a show to this?

75% Potassium Nitrate + 15% carbon + 10% sulfur = gunpowder. Ancient Chinese secret!
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:31pm ben drinken:

dying of natural causes or dying of organic causes. hard to choose. usually natural is cheaper than organic but just about the same thing.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:31pm Hasil Adkins:

Sounds like a recipe for hot dogs.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:32pm RSTVMOSHO:

  Wed. 6/8/11 4:34pm ben drinken:

  Wed. 6/8/11 4:37pm Johhny Patience Cash:

Just to watch him die of natural causes.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Wed. 6/8/11 4:44pm Matt from Springfield:

The Cooler Kids have evidently found a way around "natural causes"...
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:44pm AnAnonymousParty:

You know, I was discussing politics with a friend once when he said, "why don't you eat dick on rye?" I told him, "I don't rye". And he said, "well, why don't you try Beefsteak Rye". I gotta admit, after trying Beefsteak Rye, my outlook on politics has changed considerably.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:45pm the rest of us:

Hey Irwin, we were chatting yesterday about how there's someone new on before you after EVERY schedule change! Is it that the 12-3 hosts can't stand you, or can't stand Ken?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:48pm Observer:

I thought PINK was something downscale females wrote on their asses??
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:48pm Shadoe Stevens:

What aspect ratio is this show being broadcast in?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:48pm moose:

i was just reading about that papaya king in LA- they're waiting on long lines for 'em out there like it's the shake shack or something! the dogs are good and plain, natural casing, well-cooked, cheap
i was sad when the one on 14th closed but i was eating too many anyway
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:50pm AnAnonymousParty:

@Shadoe: Don't worry, it's been formatted to fit your radio. Just don't ask me how they know how big your radio is. Probably something to do with google, though.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:51pm Matt from Springfield:

"The Adventures of Station Manager Ken"!
and his nemesis..
"Clear Channel Charlie"!
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:51pm ben drinken:

@ Matt-they have not been able to reproduce the sandwich of pain that Kenny G made. that was so popular with the listeners.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:51pm J J:

I want the old neon sign from that 14th st Papaya. What'd they do with it?
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Re: "who's running" the show 7SD--
Answer: "Not nearly enough"
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:54pm Shadoe Stevens:

@AnAnonymousParty This show feels like a 1.66:1 ratio.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:55pm moose:

i don't think the sign was new but it was good-lookin
the place was only there for, what, a couple of years i think
i watched them install it
gotta go uptown for them now
gray's papaya is ok but not the same
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:57pm seang:

swingin baby
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:57pm RSTVMOSHO:

orange east
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:58pm Joe Bacon:

The cool thing about Pink's is that a bunch of celebrity pics are all over the walls. Sure is cool seeing Irwin's pic right next to R Stevie Moore's!
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:58pm Carmichael:

I saw Ruth Buzzi once. The real, actual, homest to God Ruth Buzzi.
  Wed. 6/8/11 4:59pm Carmichael:

... at Pink's, I meant.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:05pm Austin:

Shaggalicious, baby!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Is this Danielson Familie some odd side project of famous musicians, or are they an actual incorrect "familie"?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:07pm jaycjay:

I have no doubt at all that was a propaganda song written by a parent!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:08pm moose:

i meant to say that i don't think the papaya king sign was OLD

ay ay aya
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@jaycjay: Things get a little easier, once you understand...
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:09pm Reads Too Much:

Dante and the Lobster is a Beckett allusion.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:09pm Wikipedia:

@Matt, have you forgotten me so soon?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:10pm postmanpaul:

Good evening (here in the merry Olde England)i Irwin and all esteemed above. Got to see Ariel Pink after hearing him for the first time here on a high-brow arts BBC radio show. He was down this way a few weeks later, simply had to go. He was not being unprecocious that night. All ticket reciepts and takings had left the building some considerable time earlier. Shame, but there you go. The venue was a fucking dump, anyway.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:12pm Lizardner Dave:

So to summarize, it was Ariel Pink's hot dogs on Weiner's Twitter feed with Colonel Mustard in the den.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:14pm Ken:

Tonight on Seven Second Delay, I shall guess your meds!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Irwin!
I'm sorry Wikipedia, I'm amazed by what's on you, but I honestly had no idea "Danielson" would be listed! Can you forgive me?!!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:16pm Fire Marshall:

In the FMU studio building, a fire alarm is just a programming idea.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:17pm Matt from Springfield:

There's all kinds of alarms on watches, oven timers, machine timers, or even an old-fashioned school bell (which caused more confusion than evacuation for me when I heard it somewhere). Now if it was like that "Canadian geese" noise you were making, obviously get out. Emergency alarms should be annoying as possible.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:18pm WFMU:

We don't actually have a fire alarm, we just raise the level on channel 14, fire alarm SFX on endless loop.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:19pm glenn:

canada geese are cockroaches.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:19pm Irwin:

That's "Canada Geese," Matt. No needz 2 thx me.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fire Marshal: No kiddin! Any loud or annoying or repetitive noise is assumed to be programming there. SM Ken is such a vigilant defender of the station, everyone takes for granted that if there WAS a fire, he would have put it out. Followed by scolding Andy C. for not putting the mikes in mono.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:21pm Canadian Goose:

@Glenn: Guess who just pooped on your car, eh?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:21pm Julie:

If Ken & Andy guess my meds do they pay for the next refill?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: No need, but a want! Thx.
Funny that I said "Memorial Day's coming, the geese are getting flat" in response to your goose-in-the-street story; on Memorial Day weekend, I did in fact SEE a flattened goose on the side of the road!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:22pm Julie:

@Matt I've actually been in the building and we looked around to see if it was some sort of truck noise or just the radio
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:24pm glenn:

i hate them. they shit everywhere, they block traffic, they're unbelievably vicious AND they're a protected species here. grrrrrr.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Good one! But there would have to be some sort of challenge component; Ken & Andy guess the caller's meds and they have to guess Ken's. At the end the "answers" are announced and the winner with the most points gets what's left in Ken's bottle or something like that.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:26pm Marmalade Kitty:

This, "La Petite Fille de la Mer" is so beautiful sob
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:26pm Canadian Geese:

@glenn: And we get great pensions and free vet care. On your dime. Neener neener.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:26pm RSTVMOSHO:

If Ken & Andy guess my meds do they pay for the next refill?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:26pm RSTVMOSHO:

and before that...
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:27pm Marmalade Kitty:

you can train the geese!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Makes me glad wild turkeys didn't become America's national bird! Or the spirit Wild Turkey, wouldn't want THAT to be protected!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:27pm RSTVMOSHO:

  Wed. 6/8/11 5:28pm ben drinken:

I see a lot of canada geese around. I always wondered if they would be delicious. i bet they would be. cooked in their natural juices.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:28pm glenn:

c.g. - you're cooked, bubba. that's the other thing - goose tastes like ass.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:28pm postmanpaul:

Exactly, Matt, there a far too many alarms, and alarms are, well, too alarming don't you think? When that moment comes we don't want to be freaking out to yet another alarm do we? Menacing ice cream van music, for instance, might be more suitable don't you think?!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:29pm Marmalade Kitty:

but you can't make them go away..!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:29pm RSTVMOSHO:

That's what I think, yeah!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:30pm ben drinken:

we should introduce canada geese to north korea. an abundance of food.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:30pm RSTVMOSHO:

Mascis just called.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie 5:22: Are there speakers throughout the building playing what's being broadcast? That would cause even more confusion!
@postmanpaul: That's good psychology, play something to GET people to run out of the building voluntarily. Ice cream van music, the perfect example of a Pavlovian reaction!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:31pm glenn:

returning the invasive species favour? that would work, if we took all the canada geese here, and just moved them there.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:32pm RSTVMOSHO:

Manzanera just called.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:34pm moose:

i don't think those geese would taste so good
they seem to eat lots of chemically-treated lawns and stuff
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:35pm Brooklyn:

Speaking of scary ice cream truck music, starting this summer there are blaring trucks in the Jewish areas with "Little Brown Jug" style music, offering kosher "brachas" frozen treats, turned up even louder than the Little Brown Jug vans we've all known and hated for decades.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Well moose, what's your take on geese in Canada??
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:36pm jan:

Irwin, your recent delving into 50s and 60s jazz is an education for me. Like the space age bachelor pad music you introduced to your listeners, this is a whole genre of music many of those coming of age in the 60's did not hear when our ears were filled with AOR and the like. It's great to hear now.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:36pm glenn:

little brown jug vans?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:36pm Mike East:

anybody have a link to a good cold brewed coffee recipe?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:37pm glenn:

it's rutting season. moose is, umm, preoccupied.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:37pm Brooklyn:

In the US, the ice cream vans often blare cheesy old instrumental recordings of Little Brown Jug, Turkey in the Straw, Old McDonald Had a Farm, and other cutesy "kid" music.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:38pm glenn:

preoccupied should have finger quotes.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:38pm Brooklyn:

Didn't Kenny ever do three hours of ice cream van tunes? If not, he's been falling down on the job.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:38pm Boris:

Natasha, you hear dat 'bout Moose?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:39pm glenn:

thanks, brooklyn. p.s. - nice bridge.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:39pm postmanpaul:

Yeah, it could be a kind of 'buy 1 get 3 free special offer' manacing ice cream/fish and chip/kosha van music type of alarm, something to take our minds off filling our pants.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:41pm rst-wiley:

cold coffee is easy --
just add the extras while still hot and mix very thoroughly

Fridge, freezer, ice cubes... Whatever floats your boat.

Ice has that watering effect, so make a stronger cup of coffee or make batch coffee ice cubes for next time.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:42pm rst-wiley:

a batch a batch a batch
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:42pm RSTVMOSHO:

I love all you posters. : )
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:43pm Pete in LA:

Hey, what did I miss?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Are there going to be Jewish food vans at the Eupraxis event?! Then I'm so in!

Likewise, R. Stevie! :)
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:44pm Lizardner Dave:

Mr. RSTVMOSHO rising.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:44pm RSTVMOSHO:

your time zone is late
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Well Pete, we seem to have missed your move to LA. And you dropped the "-ski". Does EVERYONE change their name when they go to LA?!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:46pm jan:

And great to hear fresh Moondog too, which you have played for years.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:46pm moose:

maybe the ones in canada taste better than jersey city geese
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:48pm Marmalade Kitty:

Humans are the problem.. Whilst destoying and stealing away animals natural environment, and feeding them shit, murdering. relocating and baiting animals, they complain when they are stung bitten eaten whole etc.. Animal revolution!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:48pm moose and skwuddle:

hokey smoke, you sure look familiar!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:48pm Jersey City Geese:

All that airborne bodyshop rust makes us higher in iron.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:51pm glenn:

i agree with you, marm kit. i still hate those farking geese.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:53pm glenn:

and don't forget - we're animals too.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:53pm glenn:

and don't forget - we're animals too.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:53pm Lizardner Dave:

We are animals and we won the revolution. Gimme that steak.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:54pm glenn:

ooops. sorry.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:54pm Jersey City Goose:

Keep your grubby mitts off my muscles.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:54pm Lizardner Dave:

The barbecue will not be televised.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:56pm glenn:

god, i hope not. have you seen some of those people on the food network's barbecue shows?
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:58pm James Brown:

Get on the Good Foot Foot! YOW!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:58pm Joe Bacon:

Now it can be told...It was Frank Sinatra who said The Shaggs were better than The Beatles, not Frank Zappa!
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:58pm ...:

Thanks, Irwin.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:58pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Sometime Irwin you should try playing My Pal Foot Foot backwards to see if there is any hidden messages
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:58pm Lizardner Dave:

Yeah, the guy who won Best in Smoke looks like the average WFMU lonley hipster listener from Brooklyn.
  Wed. 6/8/11 5:58pm Marmalade Kitty:

Canada goose steak has to be better for you than Burger Donalds, (as long as you don't eat the ones that have been grazing on nuclear waste)
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

This show was fun!
Until next time Irwin!
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:01pm Marmalade Kitty:

Nice show, Irwin ;)
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:01pm RSTVMOSHO:

Best Fucking Show Ever
