Hi Irwin! Hi listeners! Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yes, we should. No, we shouldn't.
  3:02pm P-90:

Happy 2016, Irwin!

Hi Irwin
Avatar 3:04pm V Priceless:

Flappy Gnu Year, Irwin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Happy New Year, Irwin! Way to kick it off. BA-NA-NA!!!
  3:06pm Polyus:

At least this is just MES singing about a banana, not eating one.
  3:06pm P-90:

Don't recognize the art on the playlist page, but the Bruegel influence is duly noted.
  3:08pm P-90:

"peel session" mwah-ha-ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Alison Porchnik:

Keep feet & hands inside of car, please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Irwin:

P-90: Click on art to better recognize.
  3:13pm P-90:

Aha, the art is a link to itself! Thank you Sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Irwin:

The art isn't depicted at the link, but the source is. You can probably find the complete work online.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Irwin:

And I have in fact been exploring the worlds of Bosch and Breughel lately. But that work is neither's (obviously).
Avatar 3:18pm Wild Neil:

Irwin, Bosch did some REALLY trippy nightmarish stuff....
  3:20pm P-90:

Now I'll have to grab some companions and go see this show. I can think of 7-8 people right of the top of my head who won't want to miss this. I see the original, iconic "Steeplechase Funny Face" is there too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Alison Porchnik:

About time, some Liz Phair. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Irwin:

Neil: Many works are erroneously attributed to Bosch. For centuries there have been forgeries, fakes, copycats, and remakes, to many of which were affixed his signature. Very few of his originals exist.
  3:28pm Laura L:

Look, ma, no hands! Little chick didn't read the instructions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Grok-o-matic:

Man, Irwin. got your Tom Wilson comp disc form last year. So good. Amazing that he worked with some many great artists and such a variety. Some of the more popular stuff I had heard before, but there was definitely some more stuff I hadn't that was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Irwin:

Surely you will all LOVE the next song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Alison Porchnik:

Nice find!
  3:36pm Tommy:

  3:36pm Dean:

"Beating around the Bush." Good pun there, Mitch.
  3:37pm Dean:

He'll do our country, alright!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Greg from ZONE 5:

This is the greatest, most classy song that I have ever heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Irwin:

Here in the studio, I'm coughing blood from laughing so hard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Planet Tyler:

Ken is going to be jealous - wasnt he trying all morning to find a Trump song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Rich in Washington:

CD Baby is the new Song Poem scene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Alison Porchnik:

Careful, we've got 10 more months to go! You've got to pace your blood loss.
  3:39pm Dean:

Is this the same Mitchell Stone who has the world's largest collection of Amon Duul records?
  3:39pm Ike:

Thank you, Irwin. Thank you. This is so classy.
  3:39pm Laura L:

Irwin, were you there when Sport Murphy said Trump's hair looks like cotton candy sprayed with urine?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Greg from ZONE 5:

  3:40pm Dean:

Charles Pierce's epithet for DT is "vulgar talking yam."
  3:40pm P-90:

There you go: Trump's whole campaign could be seen as a akin to one of Bosch or Bruegel's hellish, apocalyptic panoramas.
  3:42pm P-90:

Yep, Irwin "trumped" Ken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Planet Tyler:

Nice follow up to the Trump song
Avatar 3:45pm B Uno-Air Logic:

Irwin, figured I would personally thank you here for purchasing my recent solo demo collection from Bandcamp. That was an insanely surreal moment for me. (Why pay for my shite music?) Thanks again - it means more than you might think. Great show so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Irwin:

LL: All fixed. No clues remain except this comment.
Avatar 3:53pm βrian:

Yrwyn is the Welsh spelling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Grok-o-matic:

this is a nice cover, and a great song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Bend Sinister:

FYI there's a big Dutch Bosch exhibition starting in february: boschexpo.hetnoordbrabantsmuseum.nl...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Mike East:

Thank you for this, Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm redkayak:

Howdy all :)
  4:33pm Kwizz:

Everything's better with __________ on it. (5 pts.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Irwin:

Boar's Head Peppercorn Mustard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Alison Porchnik:

I believe you mean Peppercorn Gourmaise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Alison Porchnik:

But my people call it maize.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Carmichael:

Bread Cheese?
  4:43pm Kwizz:

(Buzzer) The answer is Bluebonnet Margarine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Irwin:

AP is correct. Should have looked it up but took a wrong turn on the innerwebs and ended up in Etsy Lane. You can't back out of Etsy; you have to go all the way around the back and circle out the other side.
  4:55pm Ryab:

This, as usual, but in particular, has made me intensely pensive about my life.
  5:10pm Fredericks:

This is a wonderful version of Afro-Blue.
  5:12pm Fredericks:

I have heard many. But, not this one.
  5:19pm Jim:

Thomas Eagleton. There, I said it.
Avatar 5:24pm cosmic matrix:

holy shit, it's rodd keith!! YEAAAH!! and i'm in the middle of fixing an OPTIGAN !! bwahahhaahaa
Avatar 5:25pm cosmic matrix:

that guy was so amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Carmichael:

Off The Charts was the surprise fun documentary of the year for me. My 1st exposure to Rodd Keith and others.
Avatar 5:27pm cosmic matrix:

oooooo i didn't know about the doc!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Carmichael:

I saw it on Netflix. Might be out there on YouTube also.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Irwin:

The doc is mediocre. For one, there's no Phil Milstein. Secondly, it follows the career of a guy named Gary Forney who otherwise appears nowhere in the song-poem canon. Caveat viewer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Alison Porchnik:

This is a great cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Irwin:

Whose song is this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Alison Porchnik:

  5:46pm Fredericks:

Rodd Keith is Ellery Eskelin's father.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Irwin:

As I mentioned!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Irwin:

Ellery compiled one of the S-P anthologies.
  5:59pm Laura L:

Thanks, Irwin, nice show.
  5:59pm spodiodi:

Irwin FTW!
  6:02pm Dean:

Spent some quality time last weekend listening to Ellery Eskelin. I once attended a concert of his at a club in West Hollywood. I sat at a table where I was joined by a girl who looked to be about 8 years old. She told me she was there to hear her uncle Ellery.
