Listener comments!

  2:58pm bennett4senate:

  3:02pm Lizardner Dave:

Happy New Year ! How about some Amanda? It has been a while.....
  3:03pm PMD:

Hi Irwin!!! Happy new year! This time I'm actually here...
  3:03pm dragonflyshards:

isn't this Fabio's theme music?
  3:04pm Mr Giant Man:

No, I am.
  3:05pm v k:

hears Lee Morgan, looks up from desk and smiles - a Wednesday ritual - then looks back at desk and continues desk monkey duties, but now with a smile
  3:07pm Irwin:

@LD: Just finished compiling an Amanda best-of CD for marathon. She'll be returning to rotation soon.
  3:08pm Cecile:

When's Scala?
  3:08pm annie:

irwin i was walking down the steps back in to the room and i was thinking about that very thing..i love this moondog piece.
  3:10pm duff:

Yeah, thanks for the Louis Hardin.
  3:11pm Lizardner Dave:

I will pledge. I will get the Amanda CD. Hell, I usually get your premium anyway.
  3:14pm Cecile:

aw, phoo. I'll have to catch it on archives tomorrow.
  3:16pm MB:

Woo Hoo!!! Go Marco!
  3:17pm robin h.:

Hey! Ain't that a Floyd cover?
  3:18pm v k:

@Robin - u r correct - i would have never recognized, and i'm huge into PF
  3:18pm AnAnonymousParty:

It's off the side of Meddle that's not Echoes.
  3:18pm dragonflyshards:

Giantman i meant bed music, but was mistaken anyway.
  3:21pm Dave B in NYC:

HMFNY... Haven't been here in a while
  3:26pm timotato:

Very soothing. Very nice.
  3:27pm fred:

Nice Moondog piece. Even though I spent most of the day using his music at work -- especially autumn -- it seems I can't tire of it.
  3:27pm Laura L:

Bob & Ray--thank you. Reminds me of Drew Friedman, coincidentally!
  3:27pm PooMooDoo:

Laura, was just thinking that!
  3:28pm Yayski:

Bobski and Rayski!
  3:29pm annie:

these guys are so damn funny
  3:29pm Laura L:

In case anybody's wondering about the Drew connection--wonderful new work here: http://drewfriedman.net/gallery.html
  3:33pm chicken joke:

Jo Ann Worlys parents?
  3:33pm chicken joke:

was that Jo Ann Worlys parents?
  3:35pm Joe:

I will still be listening to this song in 10 years and still not be sick of it.
  3:35pm Henny:

One more time with feeling CJ>
  3:44pm Dave B:

Don't forget the brussell sprouts!
  3:44pm Kurt:

I heat my home with polar bears and cute little kittens.
  3:45pm PMD:

haven't heard this in a little bit... I do love it.
  3:45pm wha?:

I'm wearing 2 sweaters and fuzzy slippers just to undo all your good work, Irwin. Nothing personal.
  3:46pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Kurt, do you burn the bears and kittens in the fireplace, or the furnace? Or do you skin them and use the hides to keep yourself warm?
  3:46pm WinstonSmith:

Making light of American slop consumption and its resulting damage to the planet is very similar to making light of genocide.
  3:46pm Stockholm:

We burn bunnies to keep warm.
  3:47pm Kurt:

I burn them. Wearing fur is horribly offensive to some.
  3:49pm Eager Beaver:

Right on Kurt!
  3:49pm trs:

I sometimes forget why science is lump summed into some kinda evil.
  3:50pm yui:

possibly our DJ is being facetious.
  3:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the resurgence of the Know-Nothing Party continues unabated.
  3:52pm north guinea hills:

Hey, I consume a lot of slop!......w/ my mind!!!!

science is a tool.... it can be used for whatever purpose one desires....

however, around the eeuu, many seem to eschew science....
  3:52pm Bazunga:

everybody is stacked??
  3:52pm Kurt:

Our DJ is never facetious.
  3:53pm Amy:

Thank you for The Bats! This made my day.
  3:54pm Irwin:

If I said I wasn't being facetious, I'd have to admit I'm being a little facetious.
  3:54pm DJ Facetious:

I'm on "the other" station.
  3:57pm Carmichael:

Hiya Irwin. I'm right on time, running late as usual. Great setlist. Make sure you follow the trend and play OOIOO.
  4:06pm Bazunga:

lovely Irwin, did i ever say that you are given to wit and good humor, and are merry, sportive, not to mention... jocular?
  4:10pm Dave B:

WOW - This is outstanding.
(scooping jaw the floor)
  4:13pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Gorgeous. Much better than the Langley Schools.
  4:16pm Kurt:

My five year old boy loves this stuff (and so do I)
  4:17pm Denise in Washington, DC:

BWAHAHAHAHA! I love that this mellifluous choral performance had to be bleeped.
  4:19pm Kurt:

There is something very cool about an angelic choir swearing.
  4:20pm trs:

first choral censoring I've ever heard. Completely incongruent

Interesting sound/performance/arrangement and intereview
  4:21pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Yeah, the Bleep is fairly jarring. Blanking the audio always sounds better.
  4:24pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Personally, I think the alleged obscenities would sound best of all.
  4:25pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Yeah of course, but this is a FCC restricted broadcast.
  4:29pm Irwin:

In the context of a lush female teen choir, I opted for the bleep because it IS so incongruous. The uncensored version will be posted online at some point.

Math answer: 666 (!)
  4:30pm Irwin:

@Denise: teh fuckin' troof.
  4:38pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I have goosebumps.
  4:40pm Kurt:

Instead of bleeps you could have used a Barry White voice over.
  4:41pm schlumpfie:

i have sweet schlumpf bumps
  4:55pm Dave B:

If Seashell is a cover, who did it originally? It sounds familiar....
  4:56pm Denise in Washington, DC:

That was incredible. I was mesmerized. Thank you, Irwin.
  4:57pm feather:

interesting video imagery for this seashell song
  4:57pm Irwin:

Seashell was a Kolacny original, from the all-originals CD Paper Plane.
  4:58pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

geez, is McCartney playing the Hofner on this one?
  4:59pm Dave B:

Thanks Irwin. That was absolutely amazing.

Now - what are the chances of a little Amanda? Now THAT would have made for a good censor beep during that f-bomb in "Creep"
  4:59pm david:

And Paper plane is a free download on their site.
  5:02pm Carmichael:

Ya, baby. Now I'm putting on my smoking jacket and mingling with the hepcats.
  5:03pm ?:

nice song title
  5:06pm Irwin:

youse aksed for it. I mean her. soon she come. you nose who.
  5:06pm Dave B:

Thanks for some new musical enlightenment, Irwin.

Happy New Year
  5:09pm Lizarnder Dave:

Glad I haven't left work yet!
  5:09pm PMD:

just in time for Amanda!
  5:10pm Carmichael:

I love her growl. I imagine that the feral boy on Mad Max might talk like this.
  5:11pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I had forgotten how much I love Amanda (if I even knew in the first place).
  5:12pm Lizardner Dave:

If Scala Choir covered "Lightning Set My Butt on Fire" I would buy ten copies.
  5:13pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Too bad Scala Choir doesn't let members do solos. I'd like to hear Amanda soloing with them.
  5:14pm shotze:

i think im turing austrian i think im turning austrian i really think so.
now wheres my alpine hat? no wait! now im turning into Amanda. could really use a lozenge
  5:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If there was a recording of Amanda singing the Star Spangled Banner, that would be cool. Just need some prankster to switch Jessica Simpson's (or whoever's) at the Super Bowl and all good.
  5:22pm PMD:

I like Jessica too.
  5:30pm Bryce:

Wow, Amanda is awesome! I don't suppose you can buy this on iTunes, or anywhere at all?
  5:32pm Carmichael:

Bryce, you can buy it directly from WFMU at marathon time.
  5:33pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Meaning, you have to contribute enough to the station, and specify that you want Irwin's premium.
  5:36pm clyde:

good show Irwin!
Now if you were to win my hart you would play extremely obscure krautrock!
  5:41pm ?:

  5:42pm motherboy 30:

That La Mar Enfortuna was bitchin' man!!! - great songs!
  5:43pm Faust Gertz:

Ha ! I listened to several versions of 21st Century Schizoid Man earlier today. I thought I had accidentally jumped to my previous playlist.
  5:46pm ?:

sounds like there's a guitar dropped out as well?
  5:47pm Janet H:

Hi People!!
  5:51pm Irwin:

Hi, Marci Maven-Hamater!
  5:54pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I want a cookie.
  5:55pm Janet H:

Stalker—with dioramas.
  5:56pm Laura L:

Thanks Irwhee--fun listening today.
  5:58pm Carmichael:

Yo Irwin dawg, thanks for all the pitchy riffin', man.
  5:59pm Denise in Washington, DC:

  6:00pm Motherboy 30:

ok, that scream made it worth it.
  8:43pm Summit Police Chief Randall Disher:

100th comment. Whoo-hooo!!!!!
  1:04pm JimDe:

Now, listening on the next day, I'm a little perplexed why the Scala Choir, the 18-plus-year-olds are referred to as "girls"? Wouldn't a more appropriate word be "women" or "young women"? Am I being overly "socialist"?
  8:51am Dirk Bosmans:

Lions Club Midden Limburg brengt op zaterdag 7 december 2013 het Belgische koor Scala & Kolacny Brothers voor de tweede maal naar de Limburghal in Genk. Dit concert is het eerste optreden uit hun reeks DECEMBER-concerten, waarbij Scala in iedere Vlaamse provincie één optreden geeft. Mis dit unieke evenement in Genk/Limburg niet en koop vandaag nog uw tickets. U kunt dit online via de website http://www.scala4friends.be
