Hello Irwin and those above and below

hey irwin. listened to moondog's h'art songs after hearing you talk about him on the show a while back. really enjoyable stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 3:14pm Irwin:

H'Art Songs is Moondog's "pop songs" album. Wish he'd done more projects like that.
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 3:18pm LunchboxTA:

yeah i really adored "Do Your Thing". Lovely message with simple execution. Looking to get into more of his other works after im done with Pat Metheny now.

So my neighbor who cut my grass without asking was caught on video pouring gasoline on another neighbor's yard, killing the grass. The sheriff was called and explanation was that a landscaper he hired cut the grass around the victim's mailbox. So, he was so mad he poured gas on the lawn.

This Rooftop track was my first exposure to this great old song. I was surprised a few years later to learn that it was by no means the first version of the song.

Heya Irwin and happenin' folks.

Be careful of what you talk about on air, station manage Ken might change the name of your show to donut something!

I've had 4 or 5 stress test ...and catheterizatins .....and got two stints put in . I feel the same as I did before all this .

Great show Irwin. Dig this Sunny/Sunsets, nic Byrdsy feel

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 3:57pm Tommy in Neversink:

You have to drink a ton of water for the stress test in order to wash out the nuclear stuff.....so you drink , pee, drink more, pee more...on and on ..it's a real drag.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 4:02pm Tommy in Neversink:

And then you're scanned you have to be still 20 minutes ...and you really need to pee...but if you interrupt the test ..you have to do it over again ....I managed to make it ...but if it came to a choice of peeing in my pants or doing the whole thing again ...I was not gonna do the whole thing over again
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 4:05pm Tommy in Neversink:

So , I imagine, you're now even more relieved you avoided this test

Love these story songs. Does CW McCall ever sing in a more conventional Country style?
  Wed. 6/13/18 4:10pm Kate in Jersey city New Jersey:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 4:14pm Carmichael:

Somehow, this song is appropriate to this show. Kind of like Tiny Tim's Stairway to Heaven.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 4:16pm pinholga:

Rainy Day Women takes a lot of heat, but for my money, this is the dumbest song on "Blonde on Blonde."
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 4:23pm drr:

listener Rey: C.W. McCall wasn't really a person, more of a name a southeastern DJ used for a novelty album of songs about CB radio ("Convoy"). But I haven't heard the whole album, so...I don't really know.

If I'm not mistaken, "C.W. McCall" went on to be one of the organizers of Mannheim Steamroller. I should probably Wikipedia all this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 4:26pm listener Rey:

@drr Thanks for that info.
That's a helluva stylistic jump!

I thought that summertime was a cover meant to ridicule the Boston accent. But it wasn't
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 5:14pm Readie Righteous:

Yep! amazing harmonization- nice arrangement
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 5:15pm Irwin:

Is that Readie from WPRB?
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 5:16pm Readie Righteous:

Sure is, Irwin! diggin' the show so far!
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 5:16pm Hoboken Jack:

So I've been using a cheapy mp3 player, and a couple of days ago I realized it has a radio, so that's how I'm listening right now in the mean streets of Hoboken, if anyone was wondering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 5:16pm Irwin:

I enjoy your show too. Adventurous tastes.
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 5:19pm Readie Righteous:

Thanks, Irwin! High praise! Freeform rulz! Only wish we had an accu and archives.

Irwin, all!
  Wed. 6/13/18 5:31pm Readie Righteous:

That day we chatted I was doing an emergency sub - sometimes little to no prep makes for a really good mix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 5:33pm Michael 98145:

speaking of archives, WFMU is a beautiful example of the appropriate use of technology. plus that 128k AAC stream, of course.
  Wed. 6/13/18 5:35pm Readie Righteous:

Agreed, @michael
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 5:52pm herb.nyc:

(just tuned in, sorry to talk over the piano and quietude. but if you've no plans tonight and don't feel like listening to evan funk davies (eek!), then try StubHub for v.low ticket prices for Lucinda Williams / Dwight Yoakam at the beacon. you'll have to sit upstairs, however.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/13/18 5:54pm Michael 98145:

thanks again, Irwin
Avatar Wed. 6/13/18 5:54pm Readie Righteous:
