Listener comments!

  3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Mmmm, poutine shanty. Delicious, and singable!
  3:03pm rrg:

Is it All-Request Wednesday yet?

I keep hoping.
  3:03pm Carmichael:

OK, hi Irwin and others forthcoming.
  3:04pm Alison Porchnik:

I need a Zimbaphone like I need a hole in the head. And I need a hole in the head like nobody's business.
  3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

There was a commenter on some playlists before I began to actively comment here, with a moniker I really like: "Lysergic Poutine".
  3:06pm Alison Porchnik:

But you're so cute when you're pouting, Irwin.
  3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Angil & the Hiddentracks--nice, intriguing.
  3:07pm duke:

More Zimbaphone!
  3:10pm Vladimir Poutin:

Is not Pussy Riots in here, no? Everyone is not like me this days. Poor me. Big power and so lonely. Pull shades in dacha shanty and have moping.
  3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Teufelsleiter = "Devil's Ladder"
  3:11pm DCE:

you ol' tuefel, Irwin
  3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: As a drummer and fan of drumming, what's your opinion on timpanis and "big drums" like this one? Do you like them as much as rock/jazz drum kits, or do you like a drum kit more?
  3:12pm DCE:

if I could spell, it would read "you ol' teufel, Irwin".
  3:13pm still b/p:

I have a collection of rare antique zimbaphone stirrups. The Mexican ones are ornate and striking.
  3:13pm Tim Panny:

no one likes me as much as those little trappy drummies
  3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Vlad P: Vodka's the problem--for a number of Russians, it neither cheers them up nor makes them forget. All the suffering of alcohol with none of the perks, it seems.
  3:14pm DCE:

still b/p, that collection of yours...they're actually gynecological stirrups...I didn't disclose that when i sold it to you.
  3:17pm Tim Pan Alley:

All the great pop songs featuring big drums came from here. If only there were some classic pop songs featuring big drums...
  3:18pm seang:

Bert rulz
  3:18pm Alison Porchnik:

It's raining in my poutin' shanty. Somebody bring me a bucket.
  3:18pm Sean Daily:

Neat! It's that awesome music I heard in the Chinese restaurant last week!
  3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: Sounded kind of Latin, or Balkan. Bert was probably aiming for Americans who liked the polkas and Eastern Euro forms of music.
  3:20pm still b/p:

Either way, distinctive music created through proper practice, sensitive touch and good listening.
  3:20pm rrg:

You're billboarding the talkover music now?

Oh, you're not. You hit the wrong button in your AccuPlaylist thingy. Caught you.
Avatar 3:22pm Irwin:

  3:23pm herb:

wow, not 10min ago i was playing the AC NEWMAN song, via matador records link. greeeeat tune.
  3:23pm Alison Porchnik:

I was wondering why you'd want ruin this nice song by talking over it. But ours is not to reason why.
  3:24pm AccuPlaylist:

Oh, the errors and mistakes DJs have tried to hide over the years...
  3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Triple Sec in that 'Rita?
  3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

"Old friends, silently sharing the same fear"
  3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, that's OUR Swampass station! Our pledges help to maintain that Swampass smell year-round!
  3:26pm rrg:

Paul Simon Bumper Music Wednesday!
  3:26pm Alison Porchnik:

Are you being sequestered on the Kennedy compound, Irwin?
  3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

All those 'Ritas before 4...if you're on the Vineyard make sure Irwin isn't driving! Or boating!
  3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

"Toy-fulls-lighter" the "s" is just a possessive and a split in the words--don't "sl" together the sounds.
  3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@rrg: Classic!
  3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

How much for the Monkey Brain Sandwich Value Meal?
  3:38pm Poodle:

Grrrrrr Rwwwp! Rwwwp!
*yaps at Tampa*
  3:38pm Alison Porchnik:

You can play with my poodle if I can put my banana in your fruit basket.
  3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Moved on from "pussycats", I see...
  3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

KINKS!!! '67 era!
  3:46pm G:

Workin' out the kinks!
  3:50pm highness:

It is good to be Kink.
  3:50pm rrg:

They really do sound like children, these Lava Children.
  3:51pm DCE:

ah yeah, Irwin turned me on to these guys a couple summers ago...good stuff!
  3:57pm YETI BOB:

i forgot how awful the black crowes are!
  3:57pm Ike:

@YB, I didn't.
  3:58pm Barnum:

Right this way to see the fantastic Eponymous!!!!
  3:58pm northguineahills:

I did.
  3:59pm Alison Porchnik:

WFMU - the Party of Free Stuff!
  4:00pm Efrem Zimbaphone Jr.:

My programs always had a Zimbaphone!
  4:01pm rrg:

I finally got some WFMU swag in the mail. How's about the rest of you cats and kittens?
  4:02pm G:

@rrg: Got mine in May or June. I guess I just didn't happen to pick anything that had a production delay :-)
  4:03pm Alison Porchnik:

All but the Ken and Andy Sex Tape DVD, and after waiting this long I'm actually quite relieved.
  4:07pm rrg:

Mine just arrived. All but something from Ken, but I didn't ask for a sex tape so I don't know what this is/will be.

They even sent me some stuff I don't remember asking for.

Still better than last year, when I waited almost a year for Ken's baked treats and got two measly pieces. I still feel burned by that.
  4:07pm rrg:

  4:08pm G:

  4:08pm Droll:

When my Jersey City flexi-disc arrived it was too warped to play so I sandwiched it between some books in a pile to flatten it out and I haven't been able to find it since.
Nobody's posted it to YouTube yet, I would correct that if I could just find it...
  4:08pm in the woof mood:

"Ken and Andy: Poodle Playtime"
  4:08pm radio art party:

  4:10pm rrg:

If I had a turntable I would digitize that Flexi-Disc.

I feel burned by that too. I'm a digital guy now. I've moved on.
  4:10pm G:

Title is French for "July Was Shining"
  4:10pm kw:

Concrete Nipples? And I didn't think any song title could ever surpass Squaw Hootenany
  4:11pm rrg:

I knew that.

And Mademoiselle Nineteen is French for "Miss Nineteen."
  4:12pm rrg:

If this were a Canadian station, this would count as CanCon.
  4:12pm G:

I knew that. :-)
  4:14pm Michael:

received box o swag Saturday with stuff I completely forgot about including the flexi. Ken's is on backorder as are others. Is this the sex tape as well?
  4:14pm Alison Porchnik:

But I can read your mind. And boy do I wish I were illiterate.
  4:15pm G:

You just don't get it? :-)
  4:15pm Laura L:

"Reflections" is English for "Reflections"
  4:15pm Lamestream:

Reading minds is one thing. Bending spoons is a whole nother level.
  4:15pm Ike:

"...like a movie star/ who gets burned in a three-way script...." Say what?
  4:16pm Alison Porchnik:

@Michael: "on backorder" means (as far as the sex tape goes) that they just can't bring themselves to do it.
  4:17pm G:

Alison found the fatal flaw. Even that show's premiums have fatal flaws, apparently.
  4:18pm rrg:

My guess is that by "three-way script" Mr. Lightfoot meant "story with a love triangle in it".

But I've never met the gentleman and haven't asked him.
  4:18pm G:

I knew that :-)
  4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah Lane!
And speaking of The Kinks, that sounded like their unreleased instrumental "Little Women" in the background, with the nice mellotrons and rock arrangement.
  4:18pm rrg:

All right, please, what's THIS talkover music? The banjo thing?

Please tell me again even if you already told me.
  4:19pm Channeling the Mgr:

Don't break the mic
  4:19pm Lamestream:

Good analysis, rrg. Makes sense. Wait a minute. The main hatchway's giving in. Fellas! It's too rough to feed ya!
  4:21pm Gordon's Foot:

Please, just don't come creepin' round my back stairs. I grow pot down there and sometimes keep girls locked up for days.
  4:22pm rrg:

Only 21 she was, a young girl, just in from...somewhere.
  4:23pm Anne:

Calling in from the Carefree Highway. Just wondered how the old folks are tonight.
  4:23pm rrg:

Hey, Scala also covered "If You Could Read My Mind".
Avatar 4:23pm Irwin:

@rrg: "Perpetual Dolesome Machine" by Bud Melvin
  4:26pm rrg:

Thank you. Soundhound didn't know. Which didn't surprise me.
  4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

"Perpetual Dolesome Machine"? The title sounds sadder than the music does.
  4:26pm High-Heeled Boy:

Steve needed a higher love than Spencer could provide.
  4:27pm Putin on the Ritz:

  4:30pm Lloyd:

My favorite mall kiosks feature small pewter dragons.
  4:33pm Droll:

Wow -- Irwin brought the EAS machine with him on holiday? I'll bet he even brought the clipboards and a pair of broken headphones.
This road show indistinguishable from the real thing.
  4:33pm Michael:

where's that like button again?
  4:33pm Whopper Sr.:

Best youtube clip ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIe6hYAdw_I
  4:33pm rrg:

And the other one?
  4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

NEIL + CRAZY HORSE!! Thank you!
Avatar 4:36pm Irwin:

Yodel, please:
  4:38pm Dink:

Ever just crave Milk Duds?
  4:39pm Alison Porchnik:

Anyone who watches cartoons knows that yodeling causes avalanches.
  4:40pm Dink:

Knock Knock
Who's There?
Old Lady
Old Lady Who?
I didn't know you could yodel.
  4:40pm Mike East:

time to pull out this Neil Young record...unfortunately skips a little. Great choice, Irwin.
  4:41pm as I heard it:

A LITTLE old lady
A LITTLE old lady who
  4:42pm Lassie:

  4:42pm Dink:

Little isn;t as good.
  4:43pm Moonie:

Woulda been 66 tomorrow...
  4:43pm das:

I got a rocket in my pocket
  4:43pm Observer:

Irwin, your citrus motif is refreshing.
  4:43pm G:

Vincent's a true showbiz pro.
  4:44pm Observer:

The world was never meant for anyone as beautiful as Vincent
  4:45pm rrg:

This'll crack you up, I'm sure.

But it turns out that Alice Cooper is actually...a man!
  4:46pm Don M.:

"Vincent" netted me many an eager dick autograph.
  4:46pm Young Dude:

Was Laughing At Me written by Sonny Bono? I think I'm wrong. Mott The Hoople covered a Sonny Bono song.
  4:47pm Riff:

Easy Action!
  4:47pm still b/p:

Vincent could get over himself a little and down off the pedestal a little...based on interviews I've seen and his glowing credit for his own influence and importance. Attitude is everything.
  4:48pm Vincent:

Precisely. I got ATTITUDE. Deal.
  4:48pm Furnierest:

Alice' influence was mighty. A master of shock rock. The original band was very good. RIP Glen Buxton.
  4:48pm Mr. Furnier:

Where'd Columbo's eye go?
  4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

At least Austria's doing something about their declining yodel balance sheets.
  4:49pm Dwight Fry:

Mommy. Where's Daddy? Do you think he'll ever come home?
  4:50pm Ms. Johnston:

  4:50pm Gene Simmons:

If only I coulda been Vincent, rather than a third rate epigone.
  4:50pm rrg:

Hey, "Perpetual Dolesome Machine" is in the FMA.
  4:51pm Ace:

Gene, you mean Vinnie Vincent, right?
  4:54pm King Sighs:

Procol Gave Birth to ... Trower!
  4:56pm Boar:

Procul was unusual in that their lyricist was considered a member of the band.
  4:57pm northguineahills:

Man, two weeks in a row, Irwin plays Procol Harum. Dig!
  4:57pm Wrecked Ass Eric:

Me guitar doesn't work.
  4:59pm northguineahills:

...and Trader Horne!
  5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Trader Horne rocks! And that vocal is "former Fairport Convention lead vocalist, Judy Dyble"!
  5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Angil & the Hiddentracks Twin Spin! Where else!
  5:05pm rrg:

Nowhere but here. No one else at WFMU has ever played Angil and the Hiddentracks.
  5:08pm Alison Porchnik:

I like this. That is all.
  5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

McDonald & Giles!! And shortly after Trader Horne, amazing selections Irwin!
  5:12pm rrg:

Well, you know, Matt, he's been doing this for longer than you've been alive.
  5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@rrg: In fact he's prob been playing McDonald & Giles album itself longer than I've been alive.
Avatar 5:18pm Irwin:

And even tho I'm 106, Matt, I can still KICK YOUR SORRY ASS.
  5:21pm G:

My mom's mom did crosswords well till she died at 103. OK, so she had no idea who any of us were the last 25 years. But people remember what they are really good at and interested in.
  5:22pm Alison Porchnik:

So Irwin therefore remembers how to kick ass, is that it?
  5:23pm Don Rickles:

@Matt: He's serious, he can only still kick, if you move, he'll miss.
  5:23pm G:

And choose worthwhile but largely ignored music.
Avatar 5:24pm Irwin:

And I can still type like a mofo. I'm even better at stereotyping!
  5:25pm Fredericks:

Is this prog or hybrid music?
  5:25pm G:

Do you stereotype in both channels at once?
  5:26pm Gringo:

  5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Good Lord--if that's Irwin's age, just how old is the Codger...

And at least Irwin still does a great job at vacuuming the studio--by the sound of this long track he must be concluding that task.
  5:26pm G:

This is so clearly early prog.
  5:27pm Fredericks:

I was afraid of that, Gringo.
  5:28pm G:

Bob Fripp is hard to hang in there with :-)
  5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Fun fact: the word for "cliché" in French means the exact same thing as "stereotype" in English: "printing plate cast from movable type" in the old days of printing. In both cases a pre-fab, ready to go idea reproduced without much thought.
  5:30pm Fredericks:

Was Traffic a prog band?
  5:30pm ENO:

...tell me aboot it!
  5:30pm Greg Lake:

Duh, Eno.
  5:30pm SW:

Traffic was a Smog Band!
  5:33pm das:

Wasn't Sam Kulik the drummer for KISS?
  5:37pm George Criscuola:

Marc Bell for president!
  5:38pm rrg:

There's too much music. My head is going to explode.
  5:39pm Fredericks:

I was afraid of that, SW.
  5:40pm Ted:

Jello 4 Prez in 2012!!!
  5:41pm das:

baked beans
  5:42pm dale:

gotta say irwin, this was my kinda show. concrete nipples included.
  5:42pm rrg:

That Ex Cops track is titled "Seperator" [sic] in the FMA. Is it possible that the misspelling is intentional?
  5:42pm Dark Side of the Moon:

Avatar 5:43pm Irwin:

Dunno. My style guide forced me to correct it.
  5:43pm das:

More nipples
  5:43pm G:

FWIW, Rael was redeployed as the name of the protagonist in Genesis's prog pinnacle, _The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway_
  5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

  5:44pm ?:

Rael is Lear backwards.
  5:45pm G:

And an anagram of Real
  5:45pm The Big 'T':

Got the Coke spot handy?
  5:46pm rrg:

I'm fixing the spelling in my iTunes. My gut tells me it was a mistake.
  5:47pm G:

Also largely forgotten: Mark Wirtz's fragmentary "Teenage Opera" (pre Tommy)
  5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Coke after Coke after Coke after Coca Cola
  5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't forget "Jaguar"! That would work for a commercial even now!
  5:48pm Fredericks:

Is this Who song prog or hybrid music?
Avatar 5:49pm Irwin:

Proto psych power prog
  5:50pm rrg:

  5:50pm G:

Remember when The Who started in with keys? They didn't wanna miss out on that boat that the Beatles (1967 ff.), Moodies, and Crim had started in with.
  5:50pm The Big 'T':

Sheppard's Bush, be very afraid of that!
  5:51pm rrg:

Shepherd's Pie is still pretty good, though.
  5:52pm The Big 'T':

Eel Pie
  5:53pm trs:

Yes, a Zimbaphone. That's it.
Or an elephone.
  5:53pm Bob Fripp:

Elephant Talk!!!!
  5:54pm rrg:

Dear me, I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right.
  5:54pm AB:

It's all talk...
  5:55pm AB:

  5:55pm Barkeep:

Three minutes left for any remaining vitriol. Spew up, gents!
  5:56pm Fredericks:

Thanks, Irwin!
  5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Irwin, awesome tunes today!
  5:58pm das:

  5:58pm rrg:

Time, gentlemen, please.
  5:58pm other david:

Cheers, Irwin!
  5:58pm ?:

Been real lear, I'rael.
  5:58pm John Wetton:

Fripp can be a nuisance.
  5:59pm Bob Fripp:

I'm just smarter than you lot, and you're jealous. Dommage.
  6:01pm jt:

don't ask me why but i was wondering who was covering The Who. I blame the Ex Cops song before it.
  9:10pm KC in MKE:

I was wondering when Amanda would sneak back into the playlist. Thanks to Irwin and the archives, I now am optimistic about the world's future.
