Listener comments!

  3:02pm Steve Barton:

I enjoyed your show more when I WAS unemployed.
  3:03pm Glenn L:

This second comment reserved for Sean Daily.
  3:06pm Sean Daily:

"California Girls" sounds off.

Oh, and... first commnent after my reserved second comment and third overall comment! Woo hoo!
  3:07pm Sean Daily:

Why am I not surprised that the chair is moist after Kenny G? Especially after all that talk about handsome boys...
  3:09pm Mac:

Shouting out my support for Irwin, because as an early pledger i cannot call in my pledge to you today without throwing more money to you... which I do not have... Boo Hoo. Any CCC Mash-up today?
  3:10pm Pearly Sweets:

Kenny G sprinkles his talent like a snail as he oozes about our planet. Each shift of his weight begots another wet chair of pure genius!
  3:15pm Parq:

I heard song-poem and was expecting "A Blind Man's Penis". Showing my age, I guess.
  3:16pm DJ Keili:

800 989 9368 to pledge!
Stay tuned for more tid bits of fun!
  3:18pm umourman:

Letter to a Christian is a truly inspirational piece of music.
  3:18pm still b/p:

I'm glad we never reached the Christian Dior.
  3:23pm umourman:

If I keep playing this show at work you could be helping the employed rid themselves of a job!
  3:26pm Steve Barton:

I remember her on GKS! Any kid that doesn't like Elvis raises my hackles!
  3:26pm BSI:

I'm still glistening with post-pledge euphoria from Freedman's show.

Did Ken ever announce a winner of the Phil Spector velvet painting?
  3:28pm Steve Barton:

BSI: Winner of Velvet Spector was a listener in NC known to Ken, a Tom.
  3:28pm BSI:

aah! It's the good Doctor!
  3:30pm Gigantor:

Dr. F***ing Who! That's great!
  3:33pm Anhelo:

eres túuuuuuuuuuuu eres túuuuuuuuuuuu
  3:34pm Parq:

My Spanish-speaking relatives never understand me when I try to speak in Spanish. I'm guessing that I must sound to them like Jimmy M's "Eres Tu".
  3:35pm AnAnonymousParty:

There. I did it. I'd do it again. I'm kind of tired now, but it's a good kind of tired.
  3:38pm BSI:

I've been denied the velvet spector!
There is no god!
  3:41pm north guinea hills:

Parq, I'm pretty sure my Mexican gf would agree that I sound the same when attempting Spanish, me and my goofy-ass gringo accent....
  3:53pm Queen:

(Goofy Ass Gringo Accent)
All we hear is lingua gaga...
  3:56pm BSI:


That premium is worth it just for the J&H Productions bit alone!

De greatest DJ premium ever being gave!
  3:56pm north guinea hills:

Pamelia Kurstin is a fave of mine, and she used cut my hair!
  4:02pm sugarwolf:

this post is coming from INSIDE THE PHONE ROOM!!!!
  4:06pm north guinea hills:

oh, and Pamelia's record on Zorn's Tzadik recs. is pretty sweet....
  4:12pm Cecile:

Bryce is awesome.
  4:12pm Cecile:

I love Bryce's show!

Damn, I missed Sloan.
  4:13pm north guinea hills:

Bryce's show is perfect on Fridays, I'm still waiting for him to play one 3 hour piece for one of his shows.....
  4:17pm Parq:

Take a look at the pic of Bryce in his "bug" costume from the '07 Hoof 'n Mouth finale, which you'll find as a part of the "adoptee" gallery. 'Nuff said.


And, I note, he's still adoptable!
  4:23pm BSI:

I attempted to adopt Bryce a few hours ago, with my orgy of pledge goodness. That psychotic bug should be off the market goddammit!
  4:25pm north guinea hills:

I don't think I've liked anything from Sloan since 1998's "Navy Blues"
  4:25pm Cecile:

Sloan are the FOTC of the Canadian Rock scene in terms of great second hand clothes , cute accents (oh, that "oot") and general mindblowing hotness. Or are FOTC the Sloan of musical comedy?
  4:26pm Cecile:

ngh, I think they've been a little inconsistent, but NOTHING?
  4:27pm Sean Daily:

  4:29pm still b/p:

You mean DJ John Peel?
  4:30pm Parq:

All right, we're all on notice, Bryce is taken even if the Flicker page has not yet been updated to say so. No pleading ignorance, gang.
  4:30pm Cecile:

DJ MC John Peel.
  4:31pm still b/p:

So, anyways, DJ Keyser Soze was cutting my head off the other day, and...
  4:33pm Cecile:

Is Bryce a lady man lady bug?
  4:33pm Cecile:

I mean, DJ Bryce.
  4:34pm Carmichael:

Good day, Irwin and all.
  4:34pm Cecile:

and he is cute as a bug! And CUTE as a BUG.
  4:35pm Cecile:

Hi, Carm.
  4:35pm BSI:

egad. I expect Irwin's premium is a thing of crucial beauty...
  4:35pm Sean Daily:

Absolute Albert is perfectly normal? Poor guy...
  4:36pm still b/p:

The Monster Mash meets Spike Jones meets Devo.
  4:37pm Cecile:

yes, b/p and I feel a little Daevid Allen and NY Gong in there - a la Punk Rock City.

Which DJ Ken Freedman used to start his show with back in the WCBN daze...
  4:39pm still b/p:

Hum it for me...
  4:41pm Carmichael:

I have about 20 minutes to peruse the comments, lament over the playlist I missed, and post something constructive.

Nothin' so far, except I missed Wildman Fischer, dammit.

Irwin, are you able to dig up some Gary Usher surf stuff for a recent pledger? If it's any consolation, I turned 2 friends on to the "Off the Charts" documentary. They're now big Rodd Keith fans.
  4:41pm Cecile:

"Hello? Hello! Hello? Hello!"
that's how that one started.

And the chorus was "let's go to punk rock city..."
  4:42pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Chusid plays Manilow? I'm shuddering at the idea -- haven't yet figured out whether from extreme horror, extreme pleasure, or both. Or neither.
  4:43pm Carmichael:

I don't seem to have the patience for Daevid Allen. Or Dagmar Krausse, for that matter.
  4:49pm umourman:

aw yeah
  4:50pm Parq:

I dunno why, but I like the bird calls on Trouble's show better. Or as she says, DJ Trouble.

And as I've said before, this big-beat country is just fine with me.
  4:51pm BSI:

any bird that actually picks up lines from that CD will become a pagan god. ....hell, I'd pray to it.
  4:55pm BSI:

or actually, I'd love a parrot that chants
"no, I'm Richard Kostelanetz..."
  4:55pm ?:

  4:55pm frenchee:

Thanks for all the shirts, IC! Shadow plaid rules.
  4:55pm Cecile:

Or "I'm King Kamanawanahea and you're the Royal Macadamia Nuts"
  4:56pm Carmichael:

Or, "My name is Laaaaaarry ...."
  4:58pm Cecile:

Or "Oh God, Please send me a kid! I could buy it a donut every day!"

here's another one:
"KENNY! Get off the mic!"
  4:59pm Cecile:

Ferrante and Teicher! The twin pianos of EZ listening...
  5:01pm patrick:

the more this goes on the more it grows on me. kind of like WFMU in general.
  5:01pm Sean Daily:

Or "Please God, help me! This crazy bitch turned me into a parrot!"
  5:03pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I am totally tickled that the lovely volunteer with whom I just spoke recognized my name from the comments board of the late, lamented Incorrect Music! Thanks, Zoe!
  5:03pm Glenn L:

Yay! I love J & H productions!
Or things pertaining to J & H productions.
  5:04pm Parq:

We had a budgie once that learned to shriek our daughter's name in the same exasperated tone that it always heard us using.
  5:04pm BSI:

J&H Productions is an immortal classic.
haven't heard this in ages.
  5:05pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Good news for J&H Productions:

  5:06pm AnAnonymousParty:

My grandparents had a parrot who, for no matter how much they tried, refused to learn any phrase they tried to teach it but would instead suddenly start repeating three or four words out of some random sentence it heard in passing, things like "I'm on the phone", or "he went home" and "so was Ted" and would always throw them out when they least made sense.
  5:08pm BSI:

and for the true completist...
  5:08pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Oh my gawd.
  5:09pm Glenn L:

I love links pertaining to J&H productions!
  5:12pm AnAnonymousParty:

I may never eat jerked pork again.
  5:12pm Leon Trotsky:

Yankee man, my advice is don't take Sparrow's bet.
  5:13pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I'd like to thank the Academy . . .

Seriously, thanks for the parakeet compilation. I'm particularly tickled that Irwin immediately knew that I'd like it.
  5:16pm Cecile:

that onion article is awesome.
  5:17pm Sean Daily:

Woo hoo! Clark! Where one of my co-workers got pulled over - three times, no less - because she was black!
  5:17pm Leon Trotsky:

Can you book him for 7SD?
  5:17pm Carmichael:

Great, now I missed The Mighty Sparrow too. I'm leaving for a meeting in twenty minutes, maybe Gary Usher would fit right about there.

Oh, how art imitates life .....
  5:19pm Cecile:

DJ Nick the Bard
  5:21pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I'm amazed -- I didn't realize the J&H Productions phenomenon had expanded so far.
  5:23pm trent:

keili can you ask irwin to put this madonna reverb on your voice?
  5:27pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Personally, I'd like to hear the Madonna reverb applied to Mel Blanc's voice.
  5:27pm Parq:

Way cool. I didn't know Mel Blanc recorded novelty cuts under his own name.
  5:38pm Cecile:

I still think Craig Finn would be a great rapper...
  5:49pm bike:

kelei = new favorite on air personality
  5:53pm AnAnonymousParty:

So, Maynard Fergusson has to kick off every 'Touchy'?
  5:54pm bike:

sorry! keili!
  5:56pm AnAnonymousParty:

I think the Touchy has the greatest impact when it sounds like it was recorded in an alley.
  5:58pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Modern country music never met a cliché it didn't like, did it?
