Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Irwin:

Maybe ferrets chew stuff too. Wouldn't know.
  3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

If ferrets are like hamsters, they probably nibble like anything.
  3:01pm Listening Out There:

...Ferrets smell funny, IMO...
  3:01pm kat330:

@Matt: Funny seeing you here. Hi, IRWIN!
  3:02pm The Board:

I know plenty of people who break things :-)
  3:02pm Listening Out There:

...then again, our 13-year old son DOES smell funny at times too...
  3:03pm kat330:

Um, aren't there only dolls in that pram?
  3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Steel Five!
  3:04pm kat330:

Nice cultural mash-up here.
  3:04pm Listening Out There:

...the dolls conceal the ferret...
  3:04pm pierre:

Boooooooonsooiiiiirrr Irwin
  3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Love this sound! PanGanG must have a degree in Calypsonics.
  3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Goooooooood eveninnnnnng pierre!
  3:06pm Listening Out There:

Similar: http://soundsfrombygonedays.blogspot.com/2012/04/esso-trinidad-steel-band-esso-1971.html
  3:07pm kat330:

Fresh air, radio, sunshine and a good book -- she's got the right idea even if doll-deluded.
  3:13pm still b/p:

I hear the ferrets singing.
  3:14pm Listening Out There:

Recommended from the Esso Steel Band recording...a version of the Kinks' "Apeman"...great stuff. Oh, wait, you should listen to this Irwin program....
  3:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

"The Beta Band" is the perfect name for them. they're pretty good but no one's ever going to say "they're my favorite band EVER".
  3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

My allergic reactions aren't as bad this week as last. But still, I hope the station's "cough button" is working today.
  3:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@Listening: Seriously? "Apeman" would sound awesome on steel drums!
  3:16pm Listening Out There:

@Matt: I kid you not.
  3:17pm listener jimbo:

Apeman would sound good on concrete blocks, I don't think you could hurt that song.
  3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Irwin! This is a great one!
  3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

What kind of "button" was that???
  3:22pm pierre:

Bonsoir Matt, comment allez vous mon ami ?
  3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank YOU Irwin!
(Mr. Little Jeans, Norwegian singer Monica Birkenes)
  3:23pm G:

@pierre: Irwin said "comment all iz he"
  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Tres bien pierre!
(Is it pronounced like the English "com-MENT", when you ask it on a comment board? :)
  3:24pm kat330:

Good one, G.
  3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Keep your smoking inside of buildings, where it belongs! Crowded buildings, so everyone can make sure you're not smoking outside.
  3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Only a 12 year Bacon Reserve? I can contribute 50 years of my surplus Reserve if yours is lacking.
  3:27pm pierre:

@Matt : it's more "KO - M - Un" and never pronounce the "T" but the "EN" sound in french, is very difficult to explain.

aahhh m**de !
my internet connection keeps cutting… i didn't heard french Irwin ! aahhhhhh… i'm so angry.
  3:31pm kat330:

Pierre, G. & Matt "blague" you. Hm, great name for a French blog.
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: I know, just a "comment" boards joke! :)

I didn't study French, besides an Intro to Foreign Language class in middle school that covered French for a while. It's almost like saying "Comm-on Tallee vou", at least that's how I tried to say it!
  3:34pm Claude:

Burl Ivers!
  3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

This is just a *drop* of Sky Martin! You mean there are BUCKETS of this guy?!
  3:39pm Listening Out There:

Funny you mention Burl Ives, Claude. Just read recently that he had his own issues with the Blacklist and HUAC. He named names, sadly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burl_ives. Now, "A Holly Jolly Christmas" just won't sound the same to me...
  3:40pm Laura L:

re Sky Martin--What a vocal range and what style! I thought that sounded like a take....
  3:47pm Fuzzy:

right channel is missing -- oh dear!
  3:48pm kat330:

Stream be all gone for me.
  3:49pm kat330:

Back now.
  3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Was that transition intentional?? It kind of worked in a Pythonesque way.
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahhh, that was good audio-stapling there!
  3:53pm kat330:

Sky King, I recall, not Sky Martin. Maybe I'm related.
  3:53pm Droll:

Why not just staple the right channel back on that CD and try again?
  3:55pm still b/p:

Burl Ives = political/ethical infamy at WFMU = musical boycott.
A commenter reported a while back that Ken doesn't want any Burl Ives played, and there's this from Doug Schulkind: "You will never hear Burl Ives on this show."
  3:56pm kat330:

He's a font of jokes. [comic sans]
  3:56pm irwin:

I won't breach the Burl barrier.
  3:57pm Listening Out There:

..."Comic Sans"...now it's time to call the FCC...obscene language...
  3:58pm Jennique:

"I bet he signs his name in Comic Sans"
Love it. Gotta refer to the article, "I'm Comic Sans ASSHOLE" from McSweeneys...
  4:01pm AnAnonymousParty:

When you've had so many beans that you need to scrub your floor, then you've officially had too many beans.
  4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@AAP: Most def.
  4:06pm kat330:

Haven't heard any CB in forever. Thanks, I.
  4:09pm Caroline:

Why don't you sing the verse about the restraining order?
  4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Meeeee want to be a singer.
  4:17pm rrg:

Technical report: I don't know who needs to know this, but the WFMU iPhone app is currently broken, at least for me. It won't play the live stream and instead will only offer up "Give the Drummer Radio".

Fortunately I have an actual radio in my car.
  4:18pm chris:

rrg, listening to the 32k stream on my iphone.. lots of buffering, but I assumed that was ATT effing me over... otherwise works great... tried power off/on routine?
  4:19pm rrg:

Traffic report. I saw a sign on the Turnpike that I've never seen before:


Sure enough there was a grass fire a little farther long, producing a lot of smoke. Lovely things, grass fires.
  4:20pm kat330:

Claire's voice is vraiment clair.
  4:21pm Brass Knuckles:

Is this an outtake from PJ's White Chalk?
  4:21pm me:

This is the most awesome thing I've ever heard! FUNK YEAH!
  4:21pm rrg:

Chris, I was listening to the 128k stream. Didn't think to try another. But I'm home now and can listen in other ways.

I actually didn't reboot my iPhone, but I killed and restarted the WFMU app repeatedly without being able to get the live stream.
  4:22pm me:

  4:23pm me:

  4:23pm yen:

where can you get that claire judice record?
  4:24pm me:

  4:24pm rrg:

Lorne Greene: "The Voice of Doom."

No one but Canadians (old Canadians) would likely know that reference.

It's probably in Wikipedia but I haven't looked.
  4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

This is like the old-school Western subgenre that Clay Pigeon plays (e.g. "Dutchman's Gold")
  4:24pm yen:

the only google results are other epps of irwin's show.. there are other tracks!
  4:25pm Irwin:

Claire's record will be released in 2019, but only in France.
  4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, remember guys: Clay's filling-in for Fabio tomorrow! 3-7 p.m., 4 hour Clay Mega-ganza!
  4:29pm me:

BLOW! (I wish I could type in double caps)
  4:29pm wildneil neil neil:

Dudes! You you ! Rock Rock! Starcastle!!! How much do you weigh! Can you make a bird noise! CLAY CLAY is OK , OK!!
  4:32pm rrg:

Play Burl Lives, Irwin. What are they gonna do, fire you?
  4:32pm rrg:

  4:32pm glenn:

maybe burl did ken's briss.
  4:32pm AnAnonymousParty:

Why don't you play Burl Ives and say it was Mitch Miller?
  4:34pm rrg:

Jimmy crack corn, and I DON'T CARE!
  4:34pm Burl:

Jocks have loves,
And jocks have hates,
And freeform jocks hate Ivesey.
A Ken'll ban Ivesey, too,
Wouldn't you?
  4:35pm Listening Out There:

...Play Burl Ives and say it was "Sevi L. Rub"...
  4:35pm Laura L:

Play Burl Ives and say it was Julie Andrews.
  4:35pm Irwin:

Any truth to the rumor that Burl was a gurl?
  4:36pm G:

Get Amanda to come out of retirement and do a screeching rap over an Ives tune. Freedom of screech!
  4:36pm Listening Out There:

...remember Margaret Thatcher?
  4:37pm Burl:

I go both ways, pet
  4:38pm Laura L:

The way that Kim Novak was a man?
  4:38pm Listening Out There:

"...and I don't care!"
  4:38pm Margaret:

@LOT: I wish i did, LOL
  4:39pm Margaret:

Don't go all wobbly on me, IRWIN :-)
  4:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, is this instrumental the same as the Pink Floyd song?
  4:42pm Bob Fripp:

I did this on Starless and Bible Black!!!!
  4:44pm kat330:

Anyone know where to find the Burl Ap?
  4:45pm rrg:

Look, there's an "All Artists played by Irwin" link at the bottom of the playlist. I'm sure it's always been there but I never noticed it before.

It's a real big list.

But someone (Kenzo?) should really fix these search results so that "The Shaggs" (and a zillion other "The"s) don't sort alphabetically with the Ts.
  4:45pm Droll:

Fripp, You mean that's not you? I guess your contract prohibits you from playing without the Mellotron.
  4:45pm wildneil neil neil:

Frippertronics. Sounds like it to me, too...
  4:46pm Stanley:

McFall's from Edinburgh. You're amazing to find this Irwin.
  4:47pm wildneil neil neil:

Floyd on 'ludes! wooooooooooo
  4:47pm Irwin:

@Stanley: I've been corresponding with Mr. McFall for over a decade. The ensemble covered some Raymond Scott tunes.
  4:49pm Stanley:

Far out man. I know their bassist, Rick. They sure have put out a lot of good stuff.
  4:49pm yen:

that pink floyd cover was novel but really addd nothing to the weirdness of the original.
  4:50pm G:

Irwin knows the best unknown stuff. Learn it, live it.
  4:50pm Stanley:

Ain't dat the truth!
  4:51pm wildneil neil neil:

HUsker DU-ish. Bevis Frond is, that is...
  4:52pm pierre:

@Matt : "Comm-on Tallee vou" is much better !
@Katt : yeah, i think i remember seing something like this… i'm not sure. It's a very good one.
  4:53pm Droll:

There are known knowns; there are things we know we know.
We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things Irwin knows.
  4:54pm rrg:

Mr. Campbell! This track gets a lot of WFMU airplay, but you won't hear me complaining.
  4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Our unknowns give way to Irwin's knowns, which then become our favorites!
  4:55pm yen:

now this is more like it! a cover that really finds something new in the thing.
  4:55pm glenn:

  4:55pm rusty:

thanks for Claire xo
  4:55pm Glenn:

I don't remember Margaret Thatcher either.

And you roadies better get my cue cards up at the right time during the concert, or I'll fire you.
  4:57pm Paul Anka:

The guys get shirts!
  4:57pm Listening Out There:

Good material on Glenn Campbell in a recent read, The Wrecking Crew: The Inside Story of Rock and Roll's Best-Kept Secret - http://www.powells.com/biblio/1-9780312619749-2
  4:58pm kat330:

@glenn: See you're still in a mood. ;} Hm, Lullville's a hotbed of the dead. Quelle surprise.
  4:59pm G:

@LOT: See also the Michael Shelley interview with the book's author a few weeks ago, and that author's book-related website (link on the Shelley playlist for the interview show)...
  4:59pm glenn:

i'm pretty sure mr. campbell is a one "n" glen.
  5:00pm kat330:

@pierre: I seriously hadn't considered the "blague" homophone before, but it's rather parfait for a French humor blog, nessy paw? (my Matt-like humor)
  5:00pm Glenn:

sorry, forgot...
  5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Sholi is a good band!
  5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: "nessy paw", that's a good one.
  5:01pm Couldn't Resist...:

Sholi you jest
  5:03pm Jeanne:

Claire is magnifique. We have been awaiting Claire's record here in France--she is touring here in 5 years and every venue? It is already sold out. Merde.
  5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

...I'm not. And stop calling me Sholi!
  5:05pm kat330:

When I spent time at Loch Ness, I sadly didn't see a Nessy paw. But it IS an eerie, shadowy loch indeed.
  5:07pm kat330:

This dude seems peckish. Or is it acerbic?
  5:08pm yen:

can you say asshole on the radio now?
  5:09pm Stupid Mother FCCers:

ass is fine. hole is fine. and the problem is?
  5:10pm Uranus:

Absolutely not.
  5:11pm Laura L:

You really should play New York Or Bust by Foetus after this one.
  5:12pm glenn:

besides, peckish means hungry.
  5:14pm kat330:

That's ONE def, def. But it is dinnertime.
  5:14pm kat330:

  5:21pm ::JT::

I always seem to miss Peter Ivers. Drat. Nasal genius.
  5:22pm kat330:

@JT: Speaking of dinner, you brought home the bacon, nessy paw?
  5:22pm rrg:

  5:22pm ::JT::

Oui, oui, oui all the way home.
  5:23pm ::JT::

I'm the Burger King of Blue Communion.
  5:27pm rusty:

this song is going to need a nap after this.
  5:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes indeed--maybe reservoirs of Sky Martin would be sufficient, but not just mere buckets.
  5:38pm Paul McCarthy:

Burl Ives music not allowed at Union Square Park. Bloomberg's orders. Cops enroute.
  5:40pm David "Bong" Crosby:

Occupy Burl!
  5:40pm kat330:

So Ken also has a ban on "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"? Or it's just his singing voice he objects to?
  5:41pm Arthur Fiddler:

Topal ban still in effect?
  5:42pm Burl:

What about if for the next H&M I offered to do a dramatic recitation of a passage from a parody play called "Ken on a Hot Tin Roof"?
  5:43pm Phann:

Thank for playing Bloodrock!
  5:44pm kat330:

@Burl: First you'd have to travel to Louisville to become the living dead.
  5:45pm Burl:

Done, and done.
  5:45pm Matt from Springfield:

What a long, 15 minute delay--I hear Irwin's ending music faintly in the left channel--
it stopped now. Did anyone else hear that?
  5:45pm Buttons Gwinnett:

So did Brian actually interview Jandek yesterday? Need to check the 'chives.
  5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

No interviews, per Corwood Industries "Representative's" request. But it was a very interesting 47 minutes of live Jandek. All new, might be released by them as an album soon.
  5:46pm kat330:

@BG: You win my award for best comments list name.
  5:48pm Buttons Gwinnett:

Thanks Matt.

Thanks kat330. I signed the Declaration of Independence and little is known about me. My autograph is worth dillions! Maybe you learned about me from Alex Trebeck. THat's where I learned that a 3/4 moon is called a _________ moon. Who knows the answer? In question form.
  5:50pm Philo Gristle:

Where is the three quarter Moon?
  5:51pm Buttons Gwinnett:

(buzzer) Sorry philo ... the answer is a Gibbous moon. Next xategory please. Hodge Podge for $200.
  5:52pm Philo Gristle:

Where is the Gibbous Monkey?
  5:53pm Buttons Gwinnett:

Gibbon, philo. Gibbon. Debbie Gibbon.
  5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Button Gwinnett's right--perhaps the most valuable of American autographs; high demand, and only 51 known examples. Killed in a duel the year after signing.
  5:53pm Caryn:

Gibbous moon: What is Lovecraft's 5th favourite expression. Way behind no. 1, which is "eldrich".
  5:54pm kat330:

@glenn: [delayed reaction]: So, hm, "Peckish Like the Wolf" and "Peckish Heart" and "Peckish Games" as appetizers. Again, where can I find that Burl Ap?
  5:54pm Buttons Gwinnett:

Duel. I love that movie. Vintage Dennis Weaver. Directed by ... ?
  5:55pm rusty:

great way to end the show--:)
  5:55pm kat330:

@Caryn: Where you been girlfriend? Lurking? Of course a trivia quiz would bring you out. :)
  5:55pm Philo Gristle:

Stephanopolis Spielbergious.
  5:56pm Caryn:

@kat330: I feel the need to change the titles to more allitterative ones. "Peckish Pulmonary Pump", "Peckish Pastimes"...
  5:56pm Buttons Gwinnett:

Lovecraft's 5th favourite expression: "Bierce! Ambrose! Where did you go???"
  5:56pm sasha:

your show is making my day! thanks so much!!!!!
  5:57pm Caryn:

@kat: some internet problems, so been spending my time listening to Bill Hicks. Got the playlist up about half an hour ago.
  5:57pm Buttons Gwinnett:

Correct Philo. Speilberg!
  5:57pm Philo Gristle:

Ambrose dances beneath the Gibbous moon with Zapata!
  5:58pm kat330:

Mucho gracias, Irwin! Ta-ta all, or see you on the flip side.
  5:58pm Caryn:

"Duel": originally a TV movie. Spielberg also directed the first episode of Columbo.
  5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Another fine program, Irwin!
Catch you all later!
  6:00pm Buttons Gwinnett:

20 pts. Caryn
  6:00pm Burl:

@kat: I want to sail away to a distant shore, and make like an Ap Man
I'm an Ap Man, I'm an Ap Ap Man
I'm an Ap Man, I'm an iPhone man, I'm Ap Man
I'm an Ap Man
