Listener comments!

  3:02pm Bill:

From the look on Dad's face, I don't think a gun was a good idea.
  3:03pm Dad:

Know what we call this gun. sweetie? The widower maker.
  3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

The Dad's got something in mind to go after immediately, he's not even waiting to remove the tags!

If it's disco, tell him to spare Lord Rhaburn, this stuff's actually quite good!
  3:11pm Clark Barr:

Off to a great start, Irwin!
  3:21pm MySpace:

I am the great abandoned stripmall of the WWW. Forgive me.
  3:21pm Peanut Gallery:

About that picture, Dad and the family look perfectly normal. But it the way the weapon brings color to the gray Christmas world is strange...Great tunes IC!
  3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice B&S!
The other prob with MySpace wallpaper is the busy repeated patterns, combined with "Friends" comments strewn all over the page, it can be difficult sometimes to find the author's own content on a page.
  3:29pm Carmichael:

Bet Amanda wishes she could rock like Chrissy.
  3:30pm v k:

listening to radio all my life, i thought Pretenders only had 3 songs - now i know they have at least 4 - thanks Irwin!
  3:30pm postmanpaul:

MySpace graphics, simply put, are juvenile and cluttered Irwin.
Oz Magazine graphics were got-up like dogs dinners too...
But that was different!
  3:31pm Savory c:

oh darling, i emptied your viagra bottle into little timmy's froot loop bowl.
  3:32pm G:

Bet Chrissy wishes she could rock like Amanda
  3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the magic flute of one Herbie Mann...love this guy.
  3:33pm glenn:

hey, i just realiized the guitar riff from up the neck is the same as public image by p.i.l. huh. how 'bout that?
  3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Amanda and Friends could include duets with those who probably influenced her (and those who now wish they could perform like Amanda!)

Chrissy Hynde, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin (Natalie Cole style), Joan Jett, what other vocalists would be good for this?
  3:35pm Peanut Gallery:

From the liner notes of the reissued album with "Up the Neck": But what were songs such as "Kid" and "Brass in Pocket" actually about MOJO magazine asked The Pretenders' leader in 2006. "Oh, the usual stuff," said Hynde. "A bit of prostitution, a little scamming, a hustle here and a hustle there..."
  3:36pm Carmichael:

@Matt: definitely Louis Armstrong and Bob Goldthwaite.
  3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@v k: I'm guessing the 3 songs you're thinking of are "I went back to Ohio and my city was gone", "Back on the chain gang" and "Middle of the road". Have you not heard their take on "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas" in December?
  3:40pm Carmichael:

Isn't Christmas about scamming and a little hustle here and there? I have kids, so it's mostly here.
  3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I used to be in a band that tried to cover a Pretender's song--not one of those mentioned above--and it was harder than it would seem. They were a tricky little band, they were.
  3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carmichael: In the more oldies vein, she could sing with Dolly Parton (what a contrast! marvelous!), Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, and Connie Francis. In a modern vein she could sing with Adele, Debbie Harry, John Mayer (but I still might not listen to that one), who else?
  3:43pm Peanut Gallery:

Irwin, is this Moondog chaconne "Viking I" or "Heimdall Fanfare"? Thanks!
  3:45pm Carmichael:

@Matt: Hmmm, Kid Rock, the Beastie Boyz, the Cranberries (for the Irish yodel), the Ramones, Commander Cody, The Manhattan Transfer, and I'm envisioning a lovely duet with Wild Man Fischer.
  3:46pm v k:

@Matt - i boycott xmas tunes not sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks
  3:47pm Mike East:

Uh...Lady Gaga?
  3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carmichael: Lovely choices, especially the Cranberries! Lady Gaga we already covered a few weeks ago, Mike.
@v k: But remember, the Chipmunks are just a record speed (or Audacity setting) away!
  3:50pm glenn:

cartman covering pokerface!!! sublemon. just like everything south park does.
  3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

me no want dance
  3:54pm aaron in chicago:

nice 3pm pick me up
  3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

me can't help but dance
  3:55pm Mike East:

yeah, it seemed pretty obvious
  3:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

heat my feet
  3:59pm frenchee:

I'm dancing at my desk
  4:00pm Bill:

Did you hear that the Lady Gaga Halloween costumes have bedbugs?
  4:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

no, it's syphillis
  4:01pm Really?:

i thought they came with crabs.
  4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Any other songs you remember your band playing? I know, some songs are a lot more complex then they sound. Beatles and other songs have just weird chords sometimes, like Gm13 or stuff you wouldn't know offhand.
  4:02pm Cheri Pi:

Lady Gaga's bedbugs are dressing up for Halloween, it's so pretentious!
  4:03pm atrrs:

Yikes. People are reporting incidents of bedbugs and lady gaga halloween costumes on this map. It looks like an epidemic. Pandemic. Epic.
  4:04pm drewo:

Mighty mighty Fall. Thanks.
  4:05pm frenchee:

what drew said
  4:05pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

@Matt--the songs I picked were cool, the songs the rest of that band picked...I regret
  4:12pm Carmichael:

Wow, Michele sounds like Jane Siberry.
  4:17pm We Can Spot The Difference:

  4:21pm RD:

HI Irwin. I'm listening. What filler!
Reno D
  4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, first time I heard of the song or person Reno Dakota (looked up on wiki, couple mentions of his film "American Fabulous"). Thank you Irwin.
  4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

(sniff) Did "Better Things" remind anyone else of Neil Young's "Birds"?
  4:26pm RD:

Hey Matt, they were giving away American Fabulous dvds on the last WFMU pledge drive. Probably next time too.
  4:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@RD: Hey, glad to meet you! I can't find much online presence on you though. Do you have an Official website?
  4:28pm RD:

But of course! americanfabulous.com as well as American Fabulous Worldwide Fanclub on facebook.
  4:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Reno! I'll pay attention for any pledge premiums that have your works next March, Reno! How about Damnation? I just read the summary of that!
  4:32pm PMD:

@atrrs - I like that Chad had an incident. o
  4:33pm oops:

  4:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

when you pack a banana in your lunch, everything tastes like banana.
  4:33pm Laura L:

Rick Meyerowitz says hello. We're not listening to your show right now, we're working!
  4:33pm RD:

Damnation! No finer screenplay has ever been written. At least by me, anyway. Hopefully you're a deep pockets production backer searching for an exciting and raunchy new production.
  4:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

aw sweet my favorite prog rockers!
  4:35pm PMD:

@DCE - there are some people who won't believe you. 'how can that be?' they say in astonishment. yet the evil molecules infest everything around, just like bedbugs in lady gaga's costume.
  4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I wonder what happens when you pack a banana in your pants
  4:37pm Carmichael:

Keith Emerson rules all the keys, black or white.
  4:37pm PMD:

banana-smelling farts (I decided on a PG answer)
  4:37pm Dude with Lighter Aloft:

Karn Evil 9!!!!!!
  4:38pm Carmichael:

Everything tastes like pants.
  4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh, here it comes! the big synth solo!! whooo!
  4:39pm still b/p:

If the beat bobbed a bit more loosely, would a good portion of this sound like a Dead jam?
  4:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@RD: Not a deep-pocketed backer, but I'm nuts enough to enjoy a raunchy new production! I'll take a look at AF--seems like a beautiful production.
  4:41pm Detroit Mac:

I remember walking to the Korvettes in Downtown Brooklyn to get this album... And walking home to find it was scratched. Walked back and got another copy and back home. It was scratched, too. Went back a 3rd time and went through 15 copies to find one without the defect. Sort of hard to listen to it without thinking...
  4:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: I could try it with a cucumber in my pants, protected by a layer of aluminum foil.
Some of ELPs tracks are rather long and pretentious, but "Tank" is a good example of their skilled, rocking tracks!
  4:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

...and that's why vinyl is making a comeback
  4:43pm glenn:

saw e.l.p. (technically, fell asleep to) in 1975. exhibition stadium, toronto. you should play tank by the stranglers. way better song.
  4:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

screw that cucumber, go butternut SQARSH!!
  4:45pm Cheri Pi:

I think Amanda should do a postmortem duet with Chef from Southpark, like Natalie Cole did with her dad.
  4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! "Love Gravy Cookies"!
  4:48pm Cheri Pi:

I was thinking "salty chocolate balls"
  4:49pm jan:

Can you play the NICE, since you were playing ELP, you could play the predecessor -just E? that would be interesting to revisit.
  4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cheri: I did too, at first. But another great one could be "Kathie Lee - Mimi Cookie", it would be kind of like our Amanda/Mark Turns dream mash-up!
  4:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hey Bo Diddley
  4:52pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah Jan - "Diamond Hard Blue apples of the Moon"!
  4:52pm Carmichael:

"I'm Your Boogieman, that's what I am ..."
  4:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm your what now?
  4:53pm still b/p:

Apparently Ho' Diddley?
  4:53pm Cheri Pi:

Matt-I like the mash-up idea, it's very classy too.Someone get Amanda's agent on the line-STAT!
  4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think Irwin is Amanda's agent now
  4:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Chusid Talent Scouting "Choosy talent chooses Chusid!"
  4:59pm PMD:

This is an Irwin-approved comment board, apparently.
  4:59pm FCC:

Yes, Irwin baby, insert yourself right now!!!!!!!
  5:03pm Jandek Fans:

He's so damn happy to have all those Cds and mailers out of his office.
  5:06pm Peanut Gallery:

Re these kinds of cats: http://drop.io/tpm5lz3
  5:06pm Carmichael:

Corwood Industries??
  5:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Sorry, got called away. Yes, I'm pretty sure Irwin is her record company exec, Jody would remain her music producer and personal manager.

Chusid Artists, Inc.
  5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice motto DCE.
@Cheri: Actually any mash-up with Amanda would be excellent. Something else besides Third Stone from Cookieland.
  5:22pm Carmichael:

Oh, Mojo Nixon is another singer with whom she could duet.
  5:25pm G:

An Amanda-free setlist so far, and an Amanda-permeated comments board. Do I sense the suspense level rising?
  5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

The AMANDATE must stand!
At least one Amanda every show, at least until ALL her material has been played!
  5:27pm dreams:

amanda and shooby ...
  5:29pm Clark Barr:

Yes, I too am awaiting the latest from Amanda...
  5:30pm David:

Just tuning in! No AMANDA yet? THANKL GOD hedging my bets that Irwin's gonna spring one last minute! :)
  5:31pm Irwin:

Are listeners issuing a deMANDA?
  5:31pm Clark Barr:

  5:31pm PMD:

Is Stew the bastard son of Randy Newman?
  5:32pm David:

  5:32pm G:

We demand the First Amandment!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5:32pm Carmichael:

Man, da I want to hear her.
  5:32pm PMD:

Demandamanda. Great band name.
  5:33pm David:

  5:33pm Mike East:

This is the guy that did Passing Strange, right?
  5:33pm David:

sorry forgot to push caps lock :)
  5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Amandate Demanda, that is my Commandamanda.
  5:34pm G:

The First Amandment! Freedom of Screech!
  5:35pm dreams:

come true!
  5:35pm David:

OMG YES! George Harrison vs. AMANDA! I think I know who's gonna win... :)
  5:35pm Peanut Gallery:

@G Hahahaha!
  5:35pm Matt from Springfield:

YES! Amanda and Brandy!
And George!
  5:36pm Irwin:

@G: brilliant! Promise to steal.
  5:36pm PMD:

@G - great!
  5:36pm Clark Barr:

Yessssssssssssssssssss! Amanda
  5:36pm Carmichael:

<huge grin>
  5:37pm ScottC:

I like Amanda Freestyle better...
  5:37pm David:

LMAO! This is so freaking awesome!
  5:38pm G:

np, use away, we're all just channeling the culture, a bit at a time....
  5:39pm David:

"Shake your tits!" LOLOL!!!
  5:39pm ScottC:

especially when she screams something like "Gitchi Mama!"
  5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@David: Such a perfect ending, eh!
  5:40pm David:

I can't believe it. Genius! Weren't they like 9 years old?
  5:41pm glenn:

this IS and always will be my favourite beatles song
  5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, this Guadalcanal Diary is older than I thought--they're from the early 80s Athens scene, I thought this might be newer. Well, always something new to check out, at WFMU!
  5:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes David, they were probably like 9 at that time.
  5:47pm Carmichael:

I just had a Penelope Houston brain-rush from this song. Qualities of Mercy.
  5:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Kind of reminds me of Lucinda Williams, maybe Nancy Griffith.
  5:50pm Listener John:

Hey, this Birdie Busch song "Bordertown" sounds really good. Thanks, Irwin!
  5:53pm bruce printscreen:

Birdy num num
  5:54pm David:

Another legendary show Irwin!
  5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Freedom of Screech!!!
You're a star, G!
  5:57pm la biscocha negra:

  5:58pm Carmichael:

I couldn't be happier if I was holding a Winchester. Great show, Irwin!!
  5:58pm noah:

wow never heard this demo by harry nilsson, he is so good in the raw. he is a force of nature that compells me to like pop music, if only momentarily. it is a moment of bliss
  5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

But my preferred version of Nilsson's Without You, nonetheless. Much more gritty and emotional this way.

I agree, Carmichael. Great show, Irwin!
  3:17pm JohnB:

Excellent show, Irwin. There is a fantastic song via the Numero Group series - Elijah and Ebonites "Pure Soul". I'd love it if you can spin that on your show sometime. There is a great streaming/mp3 download Numero Group DJ set on their blog, too. http://numerogroup.wordpress.com/page/5/
