Listener comments!

  3:03pm Gigantor:

Ringworm! You rock, Irwin! But that's Van Morrison, not Lee Morgan.
  3:04pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Ah, "Ring Worm." Van Morrison's masterpiece, IMHO. As soon as I heard it, I thought, "Kenny's gone and Irwin's here. Hooray!"
  3:08pm Ike:

Kenny G just stated that you can curse in other languages. That isn't true, is it? A Georgia station (among others) was fined $7,000 for sex jokes in Spanish in 2002. Does the FCC consider sex jokes to be as bad as regular non-sexual cursing? Of course, with the FCC, nobody can probably ever tell. Plus, they probably don't have the manpower to translate everything. Swahili would be safe.
  3:13pm Marko:

mock turtles!!!! madchester!!!!!!!!
  3:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

I've often been referred to as a 'tete du merde'. Of course, that's Monsieur tete du merde to you.
  3:15pm gumby:

I can dig it.
  3:18pm Parq:

Digging the Della the most, but any change of some contemp. country today?
  3:22pm Stuart Troutman:

Wow, now I remember why I never liked Della Reese. That was hideous.
  3:23pm Ike:

I could only take about five seconds.
  3:25pm Raj:

Irwin, you're the only DJ where I can enjoy the music without having to wiki and cyber-research the bands.

There's a compliment in there.

  3:25pm Henly:

Shit! Play some Rick Pickle!!!!!!!!
  3:26pm Oatman:

  3:27pm gumby:

Career goal acheived!
  3:28pm gumby:

Strike that, the millionaire bit and all.
  3:30pm Lizardner Dave:

  3:33pm Jason:

Hey Irwin, enjoying the show! Jingle Jangle morning takes me back to this comp cd called Shreds 1992, that compiled a bunch of 7''s from that year by Karl Hendricks Trio and the like. It had an amazingly fun song by this group named Moist from the Sacramento Area called "Be Young". I have struggled to learn more about this band, all I've come up with are some crappy canadian modern rock group...any leads would be heroic
  3:34pm Jim:

This is cool. Play stuff like it.
  3:36pm AnAnonymousParty:

Flanger! Say, you got 'The Big Hurt' w/Miss Toni Fisher? IIRC, the 1st use of flanging, deliberately, in a pop recording.
  3:39pm Stuart Troutman:

Ever heard Del Shannon's cover of 'The Big Hurt'?
  3:40pm Frank Thomas:


"Ever heard Del Shannon's cover of 'The Big Hurt'?"
  3:42pm Lizardner Dave:

  3:49pm Oatman:

  3:50pm Lizardner Dave:

  3:52pm Oatman:

If the bomb drops download this album and play some JAAAAZZZZZZZZZZZ!!
  3:52pm Laura:

Jonathan Winters! Thank you--forever more!
  3:56pm Oatman:

I like the sunshine poppy sounds big ir
  4:01pm stingy d:

amy annelle has a song called "too much on my mind" migth be a cover, where i could findat?
  4:04pm Irwin:

Stingy - Amy recorded "Too Much" at home, emailed an mp3, don't think it's available commersh. Check her website: highplainssigh.com
  4:04pm Jim:

How come you don't put the talk breaks in your playlist?
  4:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

This Pooh Sticks is taking a long road to get where it's going. But I'm enjoying the ride.
  4:14pm gumby:

The secret to happiness is dried Pooh Sticks,
  4:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Dried pooh sticks to what?
  4:17pm gumby:

That's part of the happiness, it doesn't stick to your shoes and it doesn't stink as bad either.
  4:20pm jan:

anatomy of love- is good- can you print an english libretto?
  4:26pm gumby:

Irwin is there room in todays show for a crazy bongo tune? Love those crazy bongos tunes.
  4:28pm stingy d:

thanks for the help irwin... did you play that one, and thas why i know of it??
  4:29pm AnAnonymousParty:

Bongo is okay, but how about more cowbell? I mean a lot more cowbell, like insane extreme cowbell, I want a freakin' cowbell solo.
  4:31pm stingy d:

isn't it true that dancing days was the inspiration for the ain't nobody humpin around song???
  4:32pm stingy d:

why aren't you playing those two back to back in order for the listeners to compare???
  4:33pm Parq:

Can he say "Schlong" on the air? I guess we're about to find out. Nice to follow it with Zep - the schlong remains the same.
  4:34pm oaklandish:

hey tacoma. when is the zeppelin simulator coming out?
  4:34pm giraffe-o:

Used to hate this Zepp song, but now I appreciate its irony
  4:35pm Lizardner Dave:

You do need irony to make heavy metal. Also brass.
  4:36pm Vicki:

  4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

You're so f******* special. Now that's funny!
  4:38pm R. P.:

First time I've heard a children's choir get bleeped.
  4:39pm gumby:

This is beautiful, I feel better about myself. Thank You irwin.
  4:40pm Steve Barton:

I feel better about Gumby, in the afterglow...
  4:40pm Vicki:

can't beat childrens choirs. Actually you can. retard choirs.
  4:41pm gumby:

Sorry Irwin, Mitt malfunction
  4:42pm Parq:

Vicki, you can beat children's choirs, but afterward you have to tell everybody that they fell down the stairs.
  4:42pm Irwin:

I'm beginning to worry about all of you.
  4:42pm gumby:

Hey, I thought they were otherly enabled choirs.
  4:43pm Vicki:

no, ahead or behind - just beautiful choirs, that's the main thing :)
  4:44pm Vicki:

I worry a lot too.
  4:45pm Sean Daily:

Dana Drake... RAWK! Horns to the sky!

  4:46pm AnAnonymousParty:

Is Dana Drake related to B J Snowdon?
  4:47pm Denise in Washington, DC:

So this comment software edits out the F-bomb, too? The other night in the Luxuria Music chat we were figuring out which of Carlin's Seven Words (and three auxiliaries) the software would bleep. I was pretty surprised at the ones the software left intact -- like "cunt."
  4:48pm Denise in Washington, DC:

But do you know where B.J. Snowden is, Irwin?
  4:49pm stingy d:

i call a clit a click so i'm good in every circumstance
  4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

heard the original just this morning on wcsb.org. did you ever see Stevie Winwood's highly dialated pupils in the video to this?
  4:55pm AnAnonymousParty:

This RLJ got me looking for my sunglasses (and it's kinda bongo-y), you should really give us a warning Irwin so we can be properly prepared.
  4:57pm Jim:

Sick set.
  4:59pm gumby:

Alright if I can't have crazy bongos. Hard Bop is fine. Muchas Gracias!
  5:00pm AnAnonymousParty:

Anybody seen this web site?
  5:04pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Hey, I actually like this song -- and it doesn't sound at all incorrect!
  5:06pm Denise in Washington, DC:

AnAnonymous, I've seen that site before, and learned a lot from it.
  5:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

I just got hold of a Monte Kelly album at an antique store for a $1 and was trying to find out what the guy's deal was anyway and ended up at that site ... and now I've got more stuff to look for. Irwin is mentioned there, wouldn't you know it
  5:22pm Holden like caufield:

Awesome - MIdlake! 'Van Occupanther' was one of my top 5 albums last year, cant wair for their upcoming release
  5:22pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Irwin is mentioned everywhere that really matters.
  5:23pm Irwin:

Ain't mentioned here: http://www.barackbook.com/
  5:27pm johnc_tacoma:

Irwin really liked Ronald Raygun...
  5:27pm Ike:

The Midlake album was a little too soft for my tastes. It mostly sounds like Chicago or Boston or something. This song is great though. And wow, David Bowie is strangely even more compelling in German.
  5:28pm Sara:

I think Irwin only likes Midlake because the vocalist sounds just like Thom Yorke.
  5:32pm Irwin:

Sara, dear, you understand my contrarian nature.
  5:36pm Lizardner Dave:

By the way, which way is "athwart"? Is that the opposite of "astarboard"?
  5:42pm Steve Barton:

How about I just sit here until you decide, Van?
  5:42pm Parq:

The 2000-year-old man to Joan of Arc: "You save France and I'll go wash up."
  5:44pm Jim:

Not sure how I felt about that Juliana Hatfield thing.
  5:44pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Then obviously the Barack Book doesn't matter, Irwin.
  5:48pm Steve Barton:

Thanks Ir-man! My fave of the bunch. Bread up front!
  5:49pm Sean Daily:

Yes, in fact I do want a danish. I'll blow in my nose on it and give it to Dumb George.
  5:54pm FS in Berkeley:

Van Morrison at his/their absolute worst.
  5:55pm Abe Lincoln:

Let's have a vote, for democracy. Which was the best of the Van Moreison tracks? I vote for You Say France and I'll Whistle.
  5:56pm Sara:

By worst you mean best, right?
  5:56pm Steve Barton:

Best comment by Parq
  5:58pm Irwin:

Next year's Hoof & Mouth: someone's gotta do a Van-Bang medley.
  6:09pm Steve Barton:

Nothing will top that Jacques Brel tune you did several years ago for woof-moo-ishness. I think the Van-Bang songs would go well as between-set entertainment, done while the next DJ is getting ready to sing.
