Greetings, Ira, thanks for stepping in.

Hey! seeing your Friday night at 930. Hope you come out and play with Kurt, hope Kurt comes on and plays with you all.

hola, ira. gettin' my enjoys here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Monica. Surely, you must be in-line for another fill-in soon. 'Cause that would be great.
Avatar 3:23pm Claw!:

Monica! Come back to us!!!
Avatar 3:24pm Monica:

thx, ken & claw. hope so. but this right here's a rare treat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm fleep:

You may want to consult your attorney before you sock it to the judge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Parq:

Fleep, I thought maybe he wants her to sock it to a '67 GTO. Howya, Miss Monica.
  3:29pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Ira the K, gettin' me through my workday!
Avatar 3:31pm Claw!:

Wow, what a great first set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Jeezy:

Is that a joke about Scott Williams? What's going on with him?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm chris:

Civic Duty Williams is hopefully listening to this wonderful show as he awaits a court decision of some kind. Thanks for filling in Ira! Loving the show!
Avatar 3:34pm Marshall Stacks:

I thought Scott said he had jury duty. If not... good luck, Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm chris:

And... looking forward to a Monica fill in at some point, too. :-)
Avatar 3:35pm Cheri Pi:

Excellent choice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Ike:

There's no need to be circumspect about it, Ira. We know S.W. is a natural outlaw. I imagine that an attempt to "improve" Jersey City's sourdough bread supply with a dose of psilo-caninium-slobberanium ended in disaster.
  3:42pm JakeGould:

Ike, was there some bread discussion? And hello Ira the K.
Avatar 3:44pm Monica:

scott's depraved on account of he's deprived. and dna don't lie! hey there, parq, chris.

Heya Monica! Poor Ess Dub :(
Avatar 3:45pm Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Ira. Been lurking. listening, and liking a lot! Hello, all. Hey, Ms. M., what's the odds?
Avatar 3:46pm Claw!:

Yeeeah, Nots! Was talking about these cats earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Afternoon, Ira & gang!
Avatar 3:49pm Monica:

Let's just say Law & Order is already casting for the role of a charismatic bearded DJ at a fringy radio station. hey ho, cheri y sem.
  3:52pm mg:

Aislers Set! Great. This song takes me back to SF in 2003 right after a traumatic breakup. The album its entirety helped me, I seem to remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm efd:

Really enjoying the show Ira, especially that Stalk-Forrest Group track! Somehow I missed that prequel up until now.
  3:59pm JakeGould:

Ahhh, SCTV…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Rich in Washington:

This is fantastic! I had forgotten about this...
Avatar 3:59pm Sem Chumbo:

hahaha. First Crowbar and now this. A Canuck Yuk fest.
  4:00pm JakeGould:

And here it is thanks to… The Interwebs. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Parq:

Good impression, even if he drifts into Woody Allen every now and then. Looking forward to hearing who plays Tiger Lilly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Parq:

How disappointing. Maybe it would have been Joan Rivers.
Avatar 4:04pm Joe B:

  4:06pm matt:

70? Did I hear that right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Canada held their 102nd Grey Cup last night. It was the Calgary Stampeders vs. the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. I'm sure Bronwyn & Jim will have more info after this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Gaylord Fields:

I have a day off work today, and I'm enjoying this show so much that I'm watching Adam-12 on mute! This Montgomery Express song makes an unsurprisingly good soundtrack for the exploits of Malloy and Reed.
  4:11pm JakeGould:

“Calgary Stampeders vs. the Hamilton Tiger-Cats” Grey Cup? What is that? A lead up to “The Extremely Modest Bowl?”
  4:11pm matt:

Eric Bloom is 70. That's crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Gaylord Fields:

The same thing goes for Messiaen and ads for life insurance for seniors. Ira, are you programming this as a Me-TV simulcast?
  4:17pm dennis diken:

Messiaen rules!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm chris:

"WFMU, *the* Me-TV simulcast station."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm fleep:

Synchronicity every day.
Avatar 4:20pm Joe B:

Ha! yes Chris! better than the Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd!
Avatar 4:23pm Sem Chumbo:

@JakeGould: The Grey Cup is a marathon reading of the work of Spalding Grey, interspered with quarters of touch football, with a twist. As in hockey---in which the puck is always frozen solid before play, the Ti-Cats and Stamps play with a football chilled to -41--- F or C, at that temperature, there is no difference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm chris:

Awesome show this morning, Joe! My goddamn job prevented me from commenting as it was happening; will need to go back to catch The Blind Shake, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Scott Williams:

The courthouse blocked wfmu.org - barbarians!! I'm set free (for now), happy to be listening. Thanks Ira!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm chris:

I'm not sure I could be impartial in a courthouse that blocks WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Carmichael:

@Scott: the phrase that pays (for me anyway) is, "He just LOOKS guilty!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Bas NL:

Can one transmit OUT of a courthouse?
  4:38pm chiuchium:

i think we are listening more than one channel... hum! interesting... ;-)
Avatar 4:39pm Joe B:

The problem in JC is when people wriggle out of jury duty, the judge says, OK you are dismissed from here but can report next door to the civil suit grand jury for the next 6 weeks! Oh, and thanks Chris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Carmichael:

And where are my manners? Hello Ira, Monica, Gaylord, Joe B., and all the other lurking DJs and listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: DEMOCRACY SIMPLY DOESN'T WORK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Scott Williams:

@Greg, but it does make great daytime teevee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@Greg from Bloomfield: How does the quote go? Something like "Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm common:

hey ira. hello everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@Scott: And in the case of Night Court, great prime time TV!
@Gaylord: I believe that's it (I was just quoting the great Kent Brockman...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Guido from Cologne:

Love the Jack Nitzsche produced original of "Not for Me"
Avatar 4:51pm Claw!:

Aw, this is awesome! You're on fire, Ira!
Avatar 4:53pm Joe B:

Miriam's LP is great, as is her incredible live show!
Avatar 4:55pm Claw!:

I'm not really familiar with her stuff... I'll have to look into it some more.
Looking forward to Quitty and the Don'ts next week! I'll be sure to shut the hell up...
  4:56pm bar:

great go betweens tune
Avatar 4:57pm Joe B:

you don't have to. that is just the most common and tired complaint about WFMU. It should have its own documentary!
Avatar 4:58pm Claw!:

I know, I know. I done goof'd. I hope we can still be radio pals.

hi everyone! meetings over, ready to enjoy the last hour! hi everyone!
Avatar 5:01pm Joe B:

Is this the L.A. Valiants on Specialty?
Avatar 5:01pm Claw!:

Welcome back to the madness, Adrian.
  5:02pm Toddophonic:

Maybe Harry is like Ed Norton and always has to warm up with the same tune!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm adrian in mpls:

from one sort of madness to another....i prefer this madness much more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Carmichael:

Hey Joe, I would say yes, since the Valiants track appears on Soul City Los Angeles: West Coast Gems from the Dawn of Soul Music.

Mine switched as well to GTDS a few minutes ago, Greg.

I got this Caribou tune last month on a free MOJO CD, Kate Bush tribute called The Dreamers. Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Evening. Was that the Nots that *was* just Live on Nate the K (Ira's sib - ??) - ??
...Defense Attorneys for innocent people hope sane people *will* take jury duty...who knows how much of the Truth they'll tell you though? Highly dubious. A lynch mob is a Democracy - it's true. Democracy is no guarantee on its' own. Even w/out a guarantee, however, prices have recently fallen...When I was a total Newbie to Comments - it was around Xmas & I was drinkin' wine (spodee-oh) - & commenting about *completely* different streams altogether a leetle bit - so worse has happened...Why am I not subscribed to Mojo again - ??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Parq:

This was loads of fun. Thanks, Ira. Congrats on your upcoming occasion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Guido from Cologne:

Thanks for the great show!
