Listener comments!

  3:01pm ...:

Hi Irwin!
  3:01pm Monrovia:

Whoa, nelly!
  3:02pm Petula:

The show's not started yet!
  3:04pm J J:

While we wait, people can discuss the theme of today's show.
  3:04pm Easily Pleased Panda:

I highly recommend Doctor Loeb for cancer surgery. He did a great job on my left-ear-ectomy.
  3:05pm Don T:

Can you show me an example?
  3:05pm Korean Gamer:

All Your Dwelling Are Belong To Us
  3:07pm Sepembar:

I wrote this, actually.
  3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

How's everyone doing?

Concurrency restrictions have been loosened, so you all are now free to concur with me as much as you want.
  3:07pm Noembar:

My version's better.
  3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Did I get my concurrency time-stamped? Oh good, there it is. And on this one too!
Sometimes they forget to validate my comments, so I have to pay for the parking garage.
  3:08pm Chimera Rouge:

Who gives a shit. We're all going to die anyway.
  3:08pm Local Listener:

  3:09pm AnAnonymousParty:

Why is the guitar player standing way over there?
  3:14pm trish:

Is it now, yet ?
  3:15pm frank:

It was now, but now it's later
  3:16pm trish:

Glad to hear it.
  3:17pm Max von Sydow:

We're all living in the past.
  3:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, it's now again!
  3:18pm trish:

time stamped, even
  3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Though the time stamp is more of a chronicle; it never appears now, but records (as then) what now was then.
  3:20pm Inscrutable Comment Society:

Thanks for today's slogan!
  3:23pm PMD:

should we start singing Christmas carols?
  3:24pm Inscrutable Comment Society:

Sure, I'll be there at 6
  3:25pm trish:

American Samoan time.
  3:25pm Robin The Fog:

Wow, is it really snowing over there? In June? And everyone goes on about English weather!
  3:28pm Inscrutable Comment Society:

No, Irwin is having fun, it's roughly a mid-August high-humidity borderline heat wave day.
  3:28pm Inscrutable Comment Society:

It'a about 30 C
  3:29pm Robin The Fog:

Oh, got it. Haven't been awake long. Guess I'd better renew my subscription to 'Amazing Facts For The Gullible' magazine...
  3:30pm Aharon:

How is this self-released? It should be overexposed on the airwaves.
  3:31pm Ike:

More like 32 C. Feels like 42 C. UGH.
  3:32pm Robin The Fog:

Could we have some sort of 'sarcasm' alarm to help those of us still a bit sleepy?
Maybe hoot like an owl or something?
  3:33pm Joel and Dan:

Please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.
  3:34pm Excellent:

New Vedder Uke album I assume
  3:35pm John McCabe in L.A.:

Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters?
  3:39pm Pink Floyd:

  3:40pm mb:

Nice to hear Marco!
  3:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I wonder how he got that tremolo effect live on a piano...or if it was recorded to a warbly tape
  3:41pm mb:

He puts a guitar pickup in his piano and runs it through efx.
  3:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

fearlessly attaching Elton John to Pink Floyd. hmmm....
  3:44pm AnAnonymousParty:

Wouldn't you need like 15 guitar pickups do do a whole piano?
  3:44pm fishmonkeystew:

I saw the Benevento and Russo Duo play at a place called Tyrone Farm, in Pomfret CT back in 2005. They could make one heck of a lot of sound for two people. Very awesome.
  3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Bennie and the Jets!
  3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I guess now it makes more sense!
  3:49pm Mike East:

My guess is that its not actually guitar pickups, but something like a pzm mic, or something else...FX aren't only for guitar and there are many ways to accomplish such.
  3:49pm Sarah Palin:

Hi Irwin :-*
  3:49pm mb:

Guilt them!
  3:50pm PMD:

Irwin, maybe you should take some lessons from Andy on how to get people on your show.
  3:50pm mb:

Its actually a guitar pickup. Real simple setup.
  3:51pm AnAnonymousParty:

Hey mom! I'm on the radio!
  3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

I WILL come down and do the show! Marco will surely show up for ME...

Great Hoof & Mouth performance, btw!
  3:51pm Sarah Palin:

Pearl Something
  3:52pm public info:

I had a few guitar pickups in my drawer that didn’t work so well on the guitar and decided to stick them into the piano and run it through an amp. When I heard the sound, I was like, “Oh! That’s exactly what I’m looking for!”
  3:53pm John McCabe in L.A.:

Sarah Palin singing Tonight You Belong to Me with a christen puppet that what I want!
  3:53pm Mike East:

fair enough.
  3:54pm Marmalade Kitty:

Great show as always, Irwin :)@Matt from Springfield:Thanks for the appleface psa/pif. There was one or two I couldnt remember having seen. The sea, is particularly hard *o*
  3:55pm mb:

You should see his electric setup with the Benevento/Russo duo. That thing is a mystery.
  3:55pm public info:

mb, your initials are oddly apt for a Benevento fan.
  3:56pm mb:

curiously enough
  3:56pm Irwin:

@PMD: Attracting celebrity guests for Seven Second Delay hinges on a deep pool of famous people who have never heard the show.
  3:57pm cuchi update:

Cugat's former wife, Charo, will be the Grand Marshal of the Provincetown Carnival Parade in August.
  3:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: I love the picture today--have you been browsing around Everything Is Terrible (EIT)? They have all kinds of crazy crap like that. Very hysterical!
  3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

In fact I can't even look at the picture while listening to the music--whatever's playing always seems strangely appropriate, and I totally crack up!
  3:59pm PMD:

This sounds like the Grateful Dead.
  4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: My pleasure! Spreadin' the "public info" in the form of films! I once told Applemask that he was "the foremost critic on PIFs in the English language"!
  4:03pm mg:

sigh. Oh well.
  4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Anyone know where the backing track behind it is from?
  4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Irwin and Nazario:
Thanks to these two, WFMU Listeners can hear 2 Amandas each Wednesday!
  4:06pm Brass Knuckles:

Once a week is okay with me.
  4:08pm PMD:

This song is making me work faster. Keep it up Irwin!
  4:08pm Bugs Bunny:

Aren't I supposed to be getting chased through a factory about now?
  4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Loved "Animaniacs". I saw the title and wondered when "Powerhouse" was coming in -- that's that famous music that cuts in the middle, the "industrial" brass music you always heard in Looney Tunes in the 40s/50s.
  4:08pm PMD:

Oops, song change. The last one.
  4:09pm trish:

I imagine those orchestras had good fun with those animated compositions.
  4:09pm That's All Folks:

A true triumvirate would be Fab, Pidge, Ir.
  4:09pm Daffy:

Tennis, anyone?
  4:10pm barney:

I introduced my 4 year old to the Animaniacs and now it's all "Hello Nurse" and "...and I'm cute!" and the Great Wakkorati every night after dinner.
  4:14pm Marmalade Kitty:

@Matt from Springfield:
you may already have seen them, but it's quite a good site;
  4:15pm jaycjay:

Thanks for that StayThirsty link on Marco, "public info". But man, is that page hard to read! The "hide background images" option comes through again.
  4:18pm ben drinken:

had to turn up Irwin to hear over this big helicopter powerful fan. It is so loud. but could hear Amanda just fine.
  4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Blizzards AND Thunderstorms??!!
It may be burning up here in Virginia, but at least I'm spared from NJ's turmoil right now.
  4:20pm PMD:

Wow, Fabio and Clay...
  4:20pm wutherman:

tomorrow should be cooler for yas
  4:20pm Parq:

<spit take> Fabio and Clay Pigeon are doing Seven Second Delay tonight??
  4:21pm PMD:

@Matt - so, it's Springfield VA? What street. I used to live there.
  4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks MK. There are a few I haven't seen yet.
A bunch of classics in there nonetheless. "Broken Glass" has a great, visceral image. And the "Play Safe" one that has made "JIMMMYYYYY!!" practically a meme.
  4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: Seriously? Cool. I mention I'm in VA every so often, but it seems exactly one listener follows up on it each time!

Let's start with general areas and narrow down; I grew up in West Springfield, "Rolling Valley" and currently live near Lorton, in "Saratoga".
  4:25pm PMD:

@Matt - I used to live on Harwood - a mile or so from 95 down 644. Course, that was now 4 years ago? Moved back to Arlington and now am in CA!
  4:26pm PMD:

@Matt... I saw they had a video on slugging. I used to do that all the time. Would freak out anyone not from DC area. The only time I didn't get in a car was when there was a van with two guys in the front and the back had no windows. No joke. Creepy.
  4:27pm Aharon:

@PMD. And I used to live in Arlington. Paranoiacs, I see a pattern emerging.
  4:30pm Arlington:

Your Tax Dollars At Work.
  4:31pm Ugh Ugh:

Bloooooos rock.
  4:32pm The Unknown Commenter:

@Ugh: Open minded, but not THAT open minded, right?
  4:34pm ben drinken:

anyone else here in the comments live in VT? Ridiculous flooding and storms past week. Several folks lost their homes due to damage and collapsing ground. Businesses lost all inventory. millions of dollars in roads and bridges that need to be fixed. even tornado warnings. crazy. and lake champlain all messed up.
  4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: Harwood and Greeley? That's right on the other side of where I grew up (Rivington). In fact Rivington intersects with another part of Greeley.
Currently on a very Welsh, "Gwynedd" off Rolling.
  4:36pm ginger tim:

Is that Albert Collins, mostly??
  4:36pm Carmichael:

That has to be Albert Collins on guitar.
  4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm enjoying this extended blues jam...don't listen to much blues but enjoy seeing it live when drinking.
  4:37pm Weather:

Energy dissipation. What's a few extra degrees ?
  4:37pm PMD:

@ Aharon - I actually love Arlington. Lived all over in the 15 years I lived there - only had a short 4-5 stint in Springfield (sorry Matt, it wasn't my favorite... though nice of course).

PS, I'm loving this guitar in the headphones.
  4:37pm cosmic matrix:

hey that's funny - someone else from VT ! yes i live in st. george.... it's H O T today. crazy weather--remember the thundersnow?
  4:39pm Vacuum:

Irwin didn't hear much of Spillane over me.
  4:40pm ben drinken:

yes the thunder snow was bizarre. I live in Barre.
  4:41pm AnAnonymousParty:

Always follow the advice of your radio and/or TV.
  4:42pm Aharon:

@ PMD-yeah, Arlington's improved quite a bit since the late 80s, which was when I last lived there. Every visit I marvel at its transition to what feels like LA (meant to be a compliment).
  4:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Mighty hot out, 40+ men could collapse from a heat stroke. Sounds like a good time to search for life insurance policies if you haven't already. Because all companies are going to price those differently...
  4:44pm Carmichael:

Damn, you guys. It's June 1st in California, and we got yet another dusting of snow in the Sierra Nevadas. Who/What can I blame this on??
  4:45pm Matt from Springfield:

@Aharon: I know various people in Arlington; a lot of great hangouts and such, but I still hate driving around there. Are you in LA then?
@PMD: Where in Cali are you now?
  4:45pm PMD:

@Aharon, ha, that's funny. I lived in LA (I assume you mean the city and not the state) for 2 years before moving to Arlington. It was interesting comparing LA to the DC area.

@ Carmichael, really? Huh, maybe I shoudl go skiing this weekend... Just to say I did.
  4:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

shit, it's June 1st here too!!
  4:45pm Dan and Joel:

@Carm: Different forecasters are gonna forecast that differently.
  4:46pm PMD:

@Carrmichael - I believe it's June 1st in NJ too. Funny how that is.
  4:46pm Winds:

Imagine the winds and storms making landfall after 300° of low drag ocean during the Permian period. Land is such a dry drag by comparison.
  4:46pm Carmichael:

See what I mean?!? SEE??!!??
  4:47pm Mumbai:

@DCE: It's not here, right now it's June 2nd.
Is it hot? Hot enough to kill several homeless and slum dwellers before the monsoons cool us off. So yes, the usual.
  4:48pm ben drinken:

it's june 1st somewhere. time for a beer.
  4:49pm Mike East:

one of the percussion techs here has been trying to get me to listen to kneebody. I figured if its worth listening to, WFMU will play it at some point.
  4:50pm Mumbai:

I live in a one-room flat with 10 other family members, no air conditioning, and work 12 hours a day, taking calls from ignorant American consumers for $30 a day. And yet...we are still somehow ahead of you Americans! India is the future!
  4:50pm Dan and Joel:

  4:50pm AnAnonymousParty:

I ain't hearin' no sirens nor bells.
  4:51pm Peggy:

India. Pfft.
  4:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Yes indeed! You might have to listen to several DJs to find something, but if it's truly important, it will come to WFMU...
  4:54pm PMD:

@Matt, SF area.

Irwin has to go to the bathroom. Playing that song.
  4:55pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm cracking up again, with "Sirens & Bells" playing against that picture! New remix idea! Or rather, a YT slide show of those screenshots to indie rock music. A surrealistic pillow, indeed, to go to sleep to.

Okay Irwin, R. Stevie's "Carmen loop"? Are you TRYING to make me lose my breath laughing?!
  4:55pm Matt from Springfield:

If I could make up words for "How Lovely Are Thy Dwelling" to this music...
  4:56pm AnAnonymousParty:

It's like a car that can't gt out of second gear.
  4:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@AAP: Or someone saying their goodbyes to someone, then coming back because they forgot their purse, then coming back for one other thing they forgot, for several minutes on end.
  4:58pm Aharon:

@ Matt from Springfield: Nope, in Brooklyn; by law, at least 35% of all commenters on FMU boards have to be from Brooklyn, though usually we're opining on the mics used to record whatever's playing. Driving here is probably worse than Arlington...

@PMD: yeah, in the 80s Arlington was still vestigially southern, which meant no hospitality, but plenty of suspicion and dusty vacuum cleaner repair shops.
  4:59pm ben drinken:

it makes me think of the music on DVDs while you have the menu up
  4:59pm trish:

@AAP, @Matt f S

Nice analogies to go with the tunes.
  4:59pm jaycjay:

@Matt, and Mike, you don't even have to patiently listen to every DJ until you hear whatever it is, a search will show if it's on any playlists.
  5:00pm PMD:

So, Eddie's in Irwin's good graces!
I like this.
  5:00pm Tiny Tim:

Dude's not bad. Keep practicing.
  5:02pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'm-a get me one of these: http://www.amazon.com/iChime-CHIME1-Programmable-Doorbell/dp/B00150LTFO and put a clip of that 'Carmen, Don't Worry' on it. One more thing to annoy my wife!
  5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@JCJ: I search within the site quite frequently, and if you already know of a band and want to see if they've been played, you can find the show and take a listen. With such an eclectic variety of music here, you should listen to at least some hours of DJs, to find those bands you haven't heard of yet.
  5:03pm jeremy the listener:

wasn't eddie vedar in nirvana?
  5:03pm Listening Out There:

Eddie Vedder was in "Vedder Red than Dead"
  5:04pm Tiny Tim:

Blue Oyster Jam
  5:04pm ben drinken:

eddie can really jam on that pearl of an instrument
  5:04pm Matt:

I thought he was in "Simply Ved."
  5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@Aharon: Yep, I noticed Brooklyn's presence on most boards!
@PMD: I like the Bay Area, I visited two years ago. I only saw SF proper, but I'd like to go to Napa and other places outside the city next time I go back.
  5:05pm ?:

Eddie Vedder was the fifth member of Led Zeppelin, of course. He always came in handy when they needed a ukulele...
  5:06pm jaycjay:

@Matt, sure... and you know I do; as I know you do.
  5:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: I know! He was in Tony Orlando, Eddie Vedder & Dawn. Though he may have been part of the collective "Dawn"...
  5:06pm Carmichael:

Wasn't he the fifth Rutle?
  5:06pm PMD:

Irwin, I'm glad at least you refer to it as the Dick Cavett show. Others seem to be more excited by the robot...
  5:06pm Dick Cavett:

I thought I was dead.
  5:07pm jeremy the listener:

eddie vedar is dead? he just put out an album...
  5:07pm Tiny Tim:

No, Dick. I'M DEAD.
  5:08pm Carmichael:

I thought Snake Pliskin was dead, new album or not.
  5:08pm Joni Mitchell:

I'm opting out of the Woodstock reunion this year--I'm staying in New York to see Dick Cavett on Seven Second Delay.

By the way, what is Seven Second Delay? I've never heard of it.
  5:08pm paulshrug:

Eddie Vedder was in a band with Dan Tullis and Joel Clark. There's a great story about how they befouled a groupie with a policy rider.
  5:08pm Tiny Tim:

More Amanda even? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
  5:09pm Grateful Dead:

We're as good as dead.
  5:09pm jeremy the listener:

Seven Second Delay used to be in the Mamas and the Papas. I just wikipediad it.
  5:09pm Eddie Vedder:

Me, Dan, Joel, a mud shark, and a groupie. Epic.
  5:10pm Mark Question:

What is this WFMU that man on the radio keeps talking about? I never heard of it?
  5:17pm Archie Vunker:

Vedder dead than red!
  5:18pm huh?:

I thought Simon, Garfunkel & Vedder were ambulance chasers.
  5:19pm Listening Out There:

Of course not. Simon, Garfunkel & Vedder is a law firm.
  5:20pm G:

Ancient History Class. Back in olden times before mp3's, my mom and dad illegally borrowed LPs and taped them reel-to-reel on their ten foot wide all wood stereo system. They had The Graduate, Harry Belanfonte live, etc etc. All the LPs we had.
  5:20pm Younger Generation:

Again with Simon & Garfunkel? Who are they? Were they in the Beatles or something?
  5:20pm dale:

ahhhhh.........girl in a beret.
  5:20pm cosmic matrix:

OK i'm back -- hey ben, wow, you live in barre--holy moly hope everything's more or less OK between you and the water......just talked to my mom in arlington....tornado in springfield MA! whoa! hopefully not TOO bad..........
  5:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: My Dad said that before videocassettes, people would buy LPs with the audio from movies. You might not be able to see "The Maltese Falcon" on demand, but you could listen to the dialogue and score.
  5:22pm Listening Out There:

Simon & Garfunkel were Tom & Jerry.
  5:23pm AnAnonymousParty:

@Matt: It's amazing what passed for entertainment, 'back in the day'.
  5:24pm RIAA Legal:

Holy shit, and how did people copy 78s? And what's the statute of limitations? We could still save this stinking industry, which will be wholly owned by the feds in 10 years if we don't do something NOW.
  5:24pm cosmic matrix:

i used to get excited about stereo simulcasts on FM radio
  5:26pm EHEC:

uhm, that drum beat of the background music reminds me of Tuxedomoon's song "Desire".
  5:29pm trish:

Thank you, Irwin.
  5:30pm Carmichael:

@Matt: LP soundtracks were very popular in my day. I remember doing a victory dance upon finding the Apocalypse Now soundtrack on LP. There was no equipment back then that could rip an audio recording from VHS or Beta. Not that I could afford, anyway.
  5:30pm Vacuum:

While Irwin is ignoring his audience with me, Miles will studiously ignore his audience during this performance.
  5:31pm trish:

the good suck
  5:32pm Even older Codger:

We'd listen to 78's, then walk through the woods to friend's houses and then sing to them.
  5:32pm cosmic matrix:

is that a random woodpecker in my right speaker?
  5:32pm Ravel:

I smell Bolero.
  5:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Even older Codger: So that's why those old folk songs usually have a bunch of nonsense rhymes--few people had access to the original 78s, and through mishearings the verses got more mangled with every performance.
  5:38pm Musicillogicalist:

Mondegreens were once the highest form of musical art.
  5:38pm Even older Codger:

All the moonshine didn't help either.
  5:38pm Matt from Springfield:

I first found this out through a link on a playlist, but it's worth repeating this part specifically:

It's amazing how with computers we've extended recorded sound back to 1859, rendering early attempts at visualizing sound waves into a recording of that moment!
  5:40pm Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville:

Thomas A. Edison, eat yer heart out!
  5:40pm ?:

@Musicillogicalist, are you from the SF area?
  5:41pm trish:

hummina hmm hummm
  5:42pm Katya:

Loving this jazz block!
  5:42pm Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville:

Speaking of which, is Courtney T. Edison related to you? Even in the 1850s he was known to us as "le Americain crankie". Allegedly he got that nickname from the Marquis de Lafayette even earlier...
  5:42pm Musicillogicalist:

BK NY, isn't that 50% of FMU listeners' locale?
  5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Musicillogicalist: Closer to 35%, according to Aharon@4:58.
  5:44pm Musicillogicalist:

I must have misheard.
  5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@Musicillogicalist: It's a significant presence in any case. People on the playlists and callers into shows here often say they're from Brooklyn. You all might be the plurality of WFMU Listeners' locations.
  5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

The plurality of WFMU listeners are in Brooklyn.
That didn't come out right.
  5:47pm Musicillogicalist:

BK is damn close to 1% of the entire US population, and it is a stone's throw from Jersey City.
  5:49pm hopey:

Clay and Fabio? Really?? I'm very late today.
  5:50pm Clay and Fabio:

Are you finishing up Irwin? We got to set up our equipment.
  5:51pm The Pidge:

Check! Check! Check 1! Check 2!
W-F-M-U, how ya doin' !
(Fabio tunes the guitars)
  5:51pm Musicillogicalist:

Irwin knows how to end his show at the right time. A rare skill, I know!
  5:53pm Julie:

oh good god
  5:53pm Musicillogicalist:

I mean, all the record timings, all the math. It ain't easy, I know.
  5:53pm PMD:

If anyone is in the SF area, are you meeting up with Ken tomorrow for happy hour?
  5:53pm Musicillogicalist:

And where's Julie?????
  5:54pm Triumvirate Fan:

  5:54pm Julie:

I am here but well...you'll soon find out!
  5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Are you at least calling in today, Julie?
Or do you not think that's part of the format tonight?
  5:55pm Musicillogicalist:

We're waiting with baited breasts.
  5:55pm Katya:

Me too, Amanda
  5:56pm Julie:

@Matt I am here. But I do not know what is happening at 6
  5:56pm Carmichael:

@PMD: I was seriously considering it, but I can't skate out of work.
  5:56pm DanJoel:

Me want price quote!
  5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Cookie Insurance Hootenanny!

@Musicillogicalist: Yes, absolutely. Whatever "baited breasts" means.
  5:57pm PMD:

@Carmichael, too bad... I'm considering... I would really like to.
  5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie The Triumvirate has made it!
Are you commenting on a laptop, or from a studio computer now?
  5:59pm ...:

Thanks, Irwin!
  5:59pm DanJoel:

Suzy had a boyfriend
Her boyfriend had a truck
Her boyfriend liked to shift the gears
But Suzy liked to...
  5:59pm Julie:

This is really good, Irwin! I am in studio with laptop right now.
  6:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Great show as always Irwin!
Segue from you directly to Julie and/or Clay...nice!
  6:06pm Robert:

Aw, I thought we were meeting Mrs. Irwin.
