I do recommend that "Radio Alphabet". When I 1st saw mention of it, I thought it was a glossary of ham abbrs., like all those that start w "Q", but actually the book is mistitled. It's actually a glossary of terms that've been used in the industry, and sometimes more than just glossary entries.

  Wed. 3/11/15 4:07pm Robert:

Irwin doesn't seem to know about the various modes of tropospheric & ionospheric VHF propagation. But I guess his point would be they're unpredictable.

A tear to my eye Irwin. I too fell asleep with a radio under my pillow, and was randomly treated to some of the most exotic radio imaginable, for the time. Congratulations on 40, keep on broadcasting and i'll keep on giving!

He just passed away recently. And Dave Hill named his dog after him.

No, that was Joe Franklin. Joe Frank is a west coast beatnik. Joe Franklin is an east coast OCD mensch.
Avatar Wed. 3/11/15 4:37pm JakeGould:

J’accuse, Dale!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/11/15 4:38pm Bronwyn Bishop:

One time I tried playing a really long piece on the Ithaca radio station so I could wander around and do stuff, and I ended up locked out of the studio and then there was dead air. So I ran around outside and tried to climb in through the fire escape. That didn't work so I went back in and leaned on the door in frustration and it opened. I had tried the wrong door! And that, friends, is why you should never just play a really long piece and go wandering around!
Avatar Wed. 3/11/15 4:38pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Each time I leave the seat up I will sleep soundly knowing that Irwin will be putting it back down. Thanks pal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/11/15 4:41pm Andrew Waterloo:

@Bronwyn, A friend told of a similar experience where in the end they explained away the dead-air by claiming that they were playing the Nothing Record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/11/15 4:41pm Irwin:

If I recall correctly that's Billy Cobham on drums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/11/15 4:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@BronwynB - Did you get any complaints from listeners or your supervisors for that incident?
Avatar Wed. 3/11/15 4:41pm JakeGould:

Two words: Psyllium husks. Nuff said. Excelsior! And if you know what excelsior is and what Psyllium husks are you will know just how witty I am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/11/15 4:41pm chris:

Irwin and Monica, you're kind of my dream team, if you don't mind me sayin' Go team, go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/11/15 4:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Andrew: They could also have said they were playing the classic and very real record "The Best of Marcel Marceau"!

@Ken: No, the Ithaca community is very chill and understanding about these things.
Avatar Wed. 3/11/15 4:44pm Monica:

thx, chris! hello, phillip, andrew!, todd-o-phonic!, and sam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/11/15 4:44pm Caryn:

@JakeGould: I think you mean psyllium husks and plenty of liquids. We don't want to run the risk of Irwin choking, do we?
Avatar Wed. 3/11/15 4:46pm JakeGould:

Yeah, you need to drink the water with the shredded psyllium husks. You don’t want to just gnaw on that all day like a piece of wood.
  Wed. 3/11/15 4:47pm Dean:

I've never heard Ambrosia & Hall, but I have heard Oates.

Irwin was talking to "himself", "Monica"? How long has he had that personality?

Billy Cobham has been known to rock three bass drums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/11/15 4:59pm rsj:

this must have been before Irwin invented the internet, right?
Irwin should play "do the touchy"
  Wed. 3/11/15 5:00pm Robert:

Seems my gateway DJ must've been either Frank O'Toole or Paul & Morbid. That led quickly to Jim Price, Bill Kelly, and the hard stuff: my Ol' Pal Irwin.

Hoot Meow!
  Wed. 3/11/15 5:08pm Robert:

Then once I had a car & station presets & commuted, that led to total degeneracy: Nachum. And I didn't even have meetings to go to to kick the habit in the company of others.

rewarding Irwin means even more to me than punishing Andy Breckman.

I like Andy, but I'm still soaking him. Not to punish him, but to ensure that WFMU gets my meager bucks twice over.
