Listener comments!

  3:01pm hard bop:

Yo, lee morgan plays as the clouds clear and the sun shines through!
  3:02pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Lee Morgan also plays at it gets darker and cloudier here. It's all good.
  3:06pm north guinea hills:

lo siento Ale, I wasn't at my desk when Jason was talking, and then I went out for lunch......
  3:13pm Lizardner Dave:

Lee Morgan plays and the flourescent lights in my windowless office don't change a bit, but my mood improves slightly.
  3:13pm Parq:

Blossom Dearie sings, and *because* of that, the sun comes out.
  3:14pm PMD:

Hi all, including Blossom Dearie.
  3:17pm chatter:

  3:18pm PMD:

brrr... cold... teeth cchhaattterrrinnngg
  3:19pm Janet H:

  3:21pm Carmichael:

It's below freezing in California, fer Christ's sake.
  3:22pm Parq:

Never heard this Heads cover before. Go, RSM!
  3:28pm natalie:

That Jason Karaban tune is very cool! i was surprised to hear it on your show.
WFMU is my all time favorite radio station!!
  3:28pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Carmichael - Its 10 degrees here and we just got dumped on by a blizzard. Its awesome.
  3:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

East coasters beware, it's heading your way.
  3:32pm Pape:

Matthew Sweet!....Sweeeet!
Any Mary Margaret O'Hara kicking around the vaults?
  3:37pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Oh, brother! Where are you?
  3:37pm PMD:

yay! big rock candy mountain!
  3:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sounds like a good place for my next vacation
  3:38pm Carmichael:

@pape: "Pape"? As in street? Are you familiar with Crazy Hy's, 4650 Landsdown?
  3:39pm ken:

from M. Sweet to big rock candy -- love it!!!
  3:39pm Carmichael:

Irwin, it was that bastard Burl Ives.
  3:40pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Burl Ives is a son of a bitch!
  3:40pm BSI:

I've got terrible burl ives, and no ointment!
  3:41pm AnAnonymousParty:

You should hear the original version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider".
  3:41pm hard bop:

Osama Burl Ives
  3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I will not have Burl bashed in my presence.
  3:41pm jennique:

Burl Ives shot baby squirrels.

Curse you BURL!
  3:42pm PMD:

Burl WAS the snowman in whatever christmas special it was. So you CAN blame him.
  3:42pm Mark:

Someone listening should immediately obtain the blameburlives.com domain.
  3:43pm AnAnonymousParty:

There IS NO ointment, unguent nor tincture for Burl Ives, and that's the real problem.
  3:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Burl as the snowman was a neutral commentator. He didn't never hurt nobody, not Rudolf, not that monster with the toothache, not the unwanted toys.
  3:44pm a guy in a chair in a cube in the snow:

The wiki for that song is pretty good. Oddly enough McClintock himself actually sanitized it to the version you just played. It described the abduction of a child originally. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Rock_Candy_Mountain
  3:45pm Lizardner Dave:

Thanks for the Wilco.
  3:45pm Pape:

Carmichael......I know Crazy Hy's well, and also Crazy Legs
  3:45pm Wilco:

Roger, that.
  3:46pm gumby:

And here I am thinking it should be blamed on The Bossa Nova. At least that's what I'm told.
  3:47pm George Bush:

  3:47pm Ike:

I love how, every time it gets cold, 'pubs scream "no global warming!" Hee! 1-2 degrees difference ain't gonna make it warm in winter, doofuses!

Ah, I love "Wilco (The Song)" and "Big Rock Candy Mountain."
  3:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the real GWB would have said "Fahn-lee"
  3:48pm Carmichael:

Right on, Pape!
  3:48pm PMD:

Irwin, you really should play Godfrey from that CD.
  3:48pm em:

From now on, whenever Irwin plays Miley, we should all shout "Look out! She's gonna sing!"
  3:49pm ryan:

haha this song is awesome
  3:50pm annie:

irwin... now i know why i love your show soo much!!!
  4:04pm Parq:

@Ike, 3:47: Science tells us lies. Science tempts us to doubt God's wisdom and power. Science is the Devil's slide-ruler.
  4:07pm Ike:

Parq, hee hee! :) But with Irwin, I suspect it's prob. more like: Science is bad for business. Science tempts us to doubt the Free Hand of the Market. All businessmen are good and want to help us. Bow down and worship the Free Hand of the Market. Science is Communism's slide ruler.

Love the show!
  4:08pm BSI:

Burl Ives is satan's pencil-cup.
  4:10pm PMD:

I miss Olivia N-J.
  4:10pm Irwin:

Ike, you are clinically deranged. But I love you anyway.
  4:12pm Bushie:

Is this a Kelly Clarkson cover?
  4:12pm Parq:

Iwin, today's show is shaping up like a pretty good cover blog.
  4:14pm PMD:

French polka??? wow
  4:14pm ryan:

haha fly
  4:15pm deep cover lover:

This is not going to make me popular, but, uh... what's Mark Turns been up to these days?
  4:30pm BSI:

i'd help you out, man, but i got no ointment.
  4:32pm Janet H:

I'm sober and wearing pants too....
  4:32pm AnAnonymousParty:

I saw Burl Ives, drunk, and in his underwear, being dragged, dazed and shirtless, out from under someone's porch on an episode of Cops once, I think.
  4:32pm twodaysago:

Speaking of Burl Ives drunk, when I was a little kid, I thought they bombed Burl Ives on Dec. 7, 1941, then I learned it was Pearl Harbor
  4:35pm Ex Mrs. Burl Ives:

I saw Burl Ives, drunk and in his underwear, singing "Jimmy Crack Corn" at the top of his voice in the alley behind our house at 3:00 AM once, and it was the last time, at least for me.
  4:36pm Irwin:

That wasn't Burl Ives -- it was Bruce Haack.
  4:40pm Lizardner Dave:

What's all this about Fred Astaire then?
  4:42pm denveromlet:

Burl Ives' Underwear = pretty awesome band name
  4:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

can't imagine him wearing anything but red longjohns.
  4:45pm denveromlet:

and goin to town fer 'ham hocks n gittar strings'
  4:48pm AnAnonymousParty:

@DCE that's Santa Claus.
  4:54pm Lizardner Dave:


"Motors and Such" would be a cool segue....
  5:31pm AnAnonymousParty:

Stoner cement?
  5:32pm monica:

hi irwin, did you know that johnny mercer did the "lil'l abner" lyrics?
  5:34pm Irwin:

Indeed, Mo! A masterpiece.
  5:47pm josh:

what about esperanto?
  5:49pm Parq:

  5:50pm Manuel:

  5:51pm AnAnonymousParty:

Esperanto? Can I get some at Starbucks?
  5:52pm josh:

no means neniu!
  5:52pm Ike:

  5:54pm josh:

i dunno, were we getting into cyrillic?
  5:58pm Ike:

Что случилось с кириллицей? Кириллица хорошо. И я люблю Ирвина. Машинного перевода, Google является хорошим.
  5:59pm josh:

jeez, man, where'd you get that keyboard?
  6:00pm Ike:

No fancy keyboard; I cheated and copied-and-pasted from Google Translate.
  9:56am steep:

to quote the music playing while Irwin speaks, 'ohwhahh'
  10:00am steep:

er, ah - I mean, nice show to hear; to listen to.
  1:07am Everett Mann:

Burl Ives is a 33rd Degree Freemason and you'all just better watch, is all I'm-a saying. Seriously, he'll....burl ya.
