Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/25/12 3:01pm G:

The pic looks nothing like you, really. Had any work done lately?
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Cell phone pic from late into a Brazilian party you were at?
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:03pm Who it is:

Tommy, can you hear me?
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:10pm Van in DC:

Is that the Leave Britney Alone creature?
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha! "Leave Britney Alone!" was so 2006/2007. Which celeb should be the 2012 equivalent?

Leave Tom Cruise ALOOOOONEE!!!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

The Kraken Shall Be Re-released.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:14pm Euro K.:

Man, love this guitar part!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:16pm Engelbert:

Please rerelease me...
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:19pm Waitin' on That Hippy Music:

Bout time!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:21pm jan:

Surrealistic Pillow D.C.B.A.-25 - lovely choice from the past.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Or those born completely after the "1st" hippy era, but totally dig the music from that era. And the references to DRUGS contained therein!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Rock our world!
...or, destabilize our equilibrium. Sometimes both at the same time!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:24pm Queen:

  Wed. 7/25/12 3:25pm hamburger:

remember that Neil Young song, "Keep on rockin' in the free world" ? only mentioning, but I think this is what Irwin is referring to. Rocking your world.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:26pm Alternate World:

Irwin! We WERE rocking our world! But your rocked world bled into ours, cancelling it out!
Everyone was like, "I thought we were rockin! What happened?" But it was you! Rock WITH us, not against us! Or else put up a vibration wall on the edge of your dimension, and keep it to yourselves!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:27pm Paul Rodgers:

@Queen: Did you say there's a check involved? I'm in!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:29pm hamburger:

yep, I definitely heard a beeped curse word. Now that is what I call rocking your world. My world. is rocked.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:31pm Candy Kitchen:

If you're heading out to the Eastern Shore this summer, stop by any of our stores on the beaches' boardwalks! Fudge, taffy and other goodies--we are as FUDGED up as they say!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:32pm BDR:

Yay! Happy birthday Thurston!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:32pm Jess:

  Wed. 7/25/12 3:32pm BDR:

  Wed. 7/25/12 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jess: There are always ADs (Attention Deficits) on WFMU. Sure, that's a rule, but we don't pay attention much here Ooooh! hand sanitizer!...
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:36pm hamburger:

See what Matt from Springfield did there?

This is Comment Board Comedy Gold I'm tell you!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:37pm hamburger:

Blink and you'll miss it. Side splitting humor scrolling up all the way all day! (Apart from the shows with no comments boards - very serious stuff going on there)
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@hamburger: Yes, could be Comment Board Platinum, but then again we're too easily distrac
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, I remember "Shaolin Affen" now--didn't realize Klaus was covering someone else here.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:39pm hamburger:

I think Matt from Springfield must have a lot of tattoos with math answers on his body like the guy from Memento
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:40pm hamburger:

Just throwing in a little pop culture humor there..
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Wild Man Fischer & Rosemary Clooney!!! One of the best duets in recorded sound!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:45pm Mike East:

wow - what a pairing!
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Johnny needs to make his territory too, you know.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

  Wed. 7/25/12 3:52pm Tyrone Green:

Yup we got it the first time.
  Wed. 7/25/12 3:52pm hamburger:

  Wed. 7/25/12 3:57pm Andrew Waterloo:

mmm Stark Reality.. stoking my appetite
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:01pm hamburger:

That's Tommy :o
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:02pm Cheri Pi:

Butters on the side
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@Tommy: Good question--without butter, us Yanks would just dump mayo on it instead.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:04pm Andrew:

Is he trying not to laugh?
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

"Josie and the Christmas Cakes"
appearing on Tommy's album, Bjorn This Way
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:04pm Woo:

He doesn't have to get snippy about it.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:05pm Ike:

This guy is clearly overestimating our usage of butter. Don't they have partially-hydrogenated soybean oil in Norway? That's what a lot of use (even if we don't realize it because not enough of us look at the ingredients of what we buy). Europeans love butter way more than we do.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:05pm George of Troy:

Whose version of Four Organs is this in the background?
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:06pm Danes:

You know WE'RE laughing at our neighbors to the north, what a predicament! :D
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:06pm Irwin:

@GoT: Pea Hicks, "Four Optigans"
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Is this from Robert Alberg's Christmas Album?
If he doesn't have one, Robert should "cover" Bob Dylan's Christmas Album.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin,George: Was that bed music a cover of this Steve Reich piece then?
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:08pm Frenchy:

@Ike: Gras de Normandie!!!!!
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:08pm hamburger:

Robert Alberg - Truly the voice of a generation
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:09pm Irwin:

Matt: Si.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:10pm George of Troy:

Thanks Irwin! I had never heard it before... Pea is the Optigan master.

@Matt: Yep!
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, I liked that bed music. Clearly though, some people didn't:

"A 1973 performance of Four Organs at Carnegie Hall in New York City nearly caused a riot, with "yells for the music to stop, mixed with applause to hasten the end of the piece." One of the performers, Michael Tilson Thomas, recalls: "One woman walked down the aisle and repeatedly banged her head on the front of the stage, wailing 'Stop, stop, I confess.'" "
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

WFMU DJs can judge the effectiveness of their programming when listeners bang their heads on the WFMU building wailing for it to stop.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:15pm Carmichael:

HIya Irwin, hey peoples. I would comment more, but I can't bear to have that freaky looking thing staring at me.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:16pm Andrew Waterloo:

What's confusing about WFMU, particularly shows like Irwin's, is what music is driving people nuts exactly?
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:19pm G:

Headbang all you want -- as long as you confess...
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Allmusic wrote a good review of Robert Alberg's latest, though they too admitted they liked his old stuff better.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:21pm Carmichael:

Nothing is better than Jandek. Not even Amanda.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Well I can't agree with THAT--I'm too big of an Amandiac.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Is that really Tommy? What kind of trolls do Norwegians turn into when they don't eat enough butter??
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:26pm Andrew Waterloo:

Tommy gets a little raw when he has no butter.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:30pm Ferris & buddy:

Hey, butterbutterbutterbutterbutter,
sa-wing butter.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:35pm Wayne & Garth:

Scha-WING Butter!
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Really nice Eleni Mandell.
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:44pm G:

@MfS: New album released July 10th, it looks like...
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks G. I'll next to look into that...
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:53pm Michael:

me likey
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Odd and wonderful--very high score on the Quirkiness Index!
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:57pm Blossoming Young Women:

;) *blush*
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

And "All For Her"! This one actually sounds like the pop rock Irwin regularly plays!!
  Wed. 7/25/12 4:59pm Denise in DC:

This is wonderful. I'm looking for the music on line right now.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:02pm jeff in puna hawaii:

Aloha Erwin great show!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Aloha, Jeff.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:05pm jeff in puna hawaii:

Oops - IRWIN. Forgive me.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:06pm jeff in puna hawaii:

Aloha Matt from Springfield. Wouldn't happen to be in MA, would you?
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:07pm lefty:

play some Claire.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:09pm lefty:

or some Zombies?
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:10pm lefty:

or this! excellent.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:10pm Irwin:

Hello, Lefty! Oh, say, can you see?
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:10pm Matt from Springfield:

You're summoning the presence of Clay Pigeon!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:11pm lefty:

  Wed. 7/25/12 5:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@jeff: Nope, in VA, right across from Washington DC.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:11pm lefty:

I can see just fine---and this is one of the right eye's favorite songs. GREAT f-ing DRUMMER that DALE!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:12pm Carmichael:

Good Lord, it's the 80s again.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:12pm lefty:

forgive me BOZZIO
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:12pm Irwin:

He rocked Zappa too.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:14pm lefty:

oh, sweet. thank you, Irwin.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

O&O!! Gorgeous! Thank you Irwin!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:15pm Denise in DC:

This is indeed lovely.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:16pm lefty:

is this, perhaps, the best album ever made?
(aside from Begin?)
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:16pm lefty:

put your earphones on, everyone.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:17pm lefty:

panned doubled vocals.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:18pm Pennywise:

We all float down here.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:19pm lefty:

porpoise song-esque
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:23pm Bozzio:

UK too!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:26pm Berbo:

Today's meeting was canceled, so I'm listening in real time.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Neat-O, Berb-O!
WFMU listeners like myself are currently working to build a meeting-seeking missile, to remove those dreadful interruptions to the listening day.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:30pm Brett:

I was so into that Missing Persons song!!!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Everyone's Favo(u)rite Coward!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:31pm Euro K.:

America is OK? You're a coward, Noel.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:32pm Listening Out There:

...Where's the Like button on this thing? Oh...
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:33pm Philo Gristle:

Missing Persons reminded me of Lene Lovich.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:34pm Detroit Mac:

Ah... Back when the Winter Bros were doing great stuff!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:36pm Listening Out There:

...from small town Texas yet, Johnny and Edgar...
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:36pm Matt from Springfield:

+10 for Edgar's long vocal!!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Marmalade Souls? Did the Apple band Marmalade merge with a band called the Souls?
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:42pm Matt from Springfield:

The Sunshine Company's right up my alley! Surprised I never heard them before!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:45pm Denise in DC:

Matt, do you know the Internet station LuxuriaMusic.com? They play obscure California 60s pop all the time.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Say WHAT Denise??! :)
No, and I'd better check it out!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Looks great Denise! Thanks!
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:50pm Denise in DC:

Interspersed with other weirdness, of course.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:51pm Carmichael:

Breathy, Colin, breathy ....
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:52pm dale:

i have an album called 'tarot suite' by mike batt - colin sings a purty song on there, but unless you have the vinyl, you'll probably never hear it.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:54pm FBI Human Trafficking Division:

Monitor Golden Earring's communications.
  Wed. 7/25/12 5:55pm dale:
