PEACE all! Irwin, you ROCK, dude.

Hi Irwin and everybody. That's quite a comic.

Avatar 3:12pm Wild Neil:

Once I went to lunch with my boss and a self-centered co-worker. He literally talked about himself for 20 minutes straight. Our boss finally told him to let me talk for awhile...it was really amazing watching him go on and on and on about what a great guy he was....ug...

definitely a lovely piece, irwin :-D

The Irwin Death Curse is real.
Avatar 3:16pm V Priceless:

yeah, how weird was that? Greg Lake RIP. Got any Donald Trump tunes?
Avatar 3:18pm Wild Neil:

This song is like the ocean crashing on the beach....Tame Impala.
Avatar 3:19pm Wild Neil:

Well, gotta go to Aldis for cearal then home for dinner....weird spoken word break in that song fur sure...

Whenever I hear the name Nietzsche, my mind pictures a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers.

Hi Irwin, Wild Neil, Ken !

I'd like to suggest to play music from deceased people. If that doesn't breaks the curse, I don't know what. Or maybe playing music from young and fit musicians from developed countries with very high life expectancy.

Mall Santa! Scary fuckers they are, except for Billy Bob!

"Cookie" is a triggering event to the Web browsing community, too.

Zzzzz. I am lame-comedy-phobic.
  3:28pm Hoboken Jack:

Reporting for duty! Again listening through my phone as I sort out my home electronics and how to reach them.
Avatar 3:28pm βrian:

Which is why we purge our cookies — early and often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Irwin:

JACK IS BACK. Everyone welcome back Jack. He's home, and that's a fack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Agnostic Buddhist Vegan Wizard:

I liked it better when conservatives inveighed against victim culture. Now they partake in it instead, by whining and playing the victim any time they feel like they're in danger of becoming any kind of minority or further building up the imaginary straw-man of "PC."
  3:30pm Dean:

"Purge," you mean as opposed to "spill"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Passaic River Blues:

The Death Curse cannot be lifted. It can only be pacified with blood. Perhaps we can temporarily satiate its voracious appetite with a ritual sacrifice upon an altar built in the middle of Montgomery Street out of discarded prog LPs.
Avatar 3:31pm Dominick:

More bad 2016 news, the end of Maakies.

Brian - Love that NFC site. Thx!

@ABVW: Right on! A bunch of whiners, they are. Except Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Alison Porchnik:

@Hoboken Jack - do you have a grabber?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm ⓘⓚⓔ:

@PRB, ha ha, careful, your altar of discarded prog LPs might attract some interdimensional creatures that speak Kobaïan and like to eat entire symphonic choruses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Parq:

Love this album -- Ry Cooder's other Cuban album. Love the languid tempo and the (as the title would have it) sinuous guitar passages.
  3:50pm βrian:

Makes me thirsty for an umbrella cocktail.
  3:53pm Listening Out There:

Lateness. We have lateness...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Passaic River Blues:

@Ike: In addition to all the things that factor into programming decisions (a song's duration, audio quality, suitability with the preceding and succeeding tracks, a program's theme, etc.), it's at least somewhat amusing to imagine Irwin now has to ponder whether it's also worth killing the band. With great power comes great responsibility.
  3:56pm Listening Out There:

Smite 'em, Irwin, smite 'em...
  3:57pm Hoboken Jack:

That Human Radio was real real nice. @Alison, I do, so far I've only used it to recreate John Candy's classic line "I got my Christmas goose early!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Irwin:

PRB: The request line is open.
Avatar 3:57pm Roberto:

I'll be there next Friday! (LAX)
  3:58pm Dean:

It might be worth having to endure a Sting tune or two.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Ike:

Hmmm, should we request "Don't Get Killed" by Andy Breckman then? Ha ha.
  4:00pm joecmorris:

how about Until the Swelling Goes Down, on which Andy shares a co write with (wait for it!) Don Mclean!
  4:01pm joecmorris:

(actually Don just contributes "clown" but what a crucial word it is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Irwin:

There's some painful stuff in this episode. By which I mean PAINFUL, and not funny. But fascinating. And PAINFUL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Parq:

It's pretty easy to guess where this metaphor is going.

"Selecting a tender place too bite with it's mandibles." Hey stop talking about my ex that way!
Avatar 4:53pm bollocks:

that is rinocerose in the background
  4:57pm Listener Robert:

Joe Frank (the persona he plays) obviously doesn't know C&W music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Passaic River Blues:

Well, that was awesome.
  5:00pm Listener Robert:

In fact those subjects he said would never be ones of popular songs would probably be, with some abbreviation, excellent C&W titles. Either that or Potterhouse.
  5:03pm berbo:

"Grandman's lookin' awful". - an all-start country tribute to Joe Frank - starring Jason Aldean ! Luke Bryan! and Carrie Underwood!

Makes an excellent Christmas gift.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Carmichael:

Oh thanks, berbo. Your reminded me to go to DollarTree today, where only the BEST xmas comp cds are available.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Irwin:

This nondescript instrumental by Man has a great ending. It takes forever to end, too. It just ends and ends and ends, before it ends.
  5:18pm Laura L:

Is a fat lady gonna sing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Irwin:

Ending has commenced. But it ain't over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It's a happy ending, though, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Irwin:

It made me happee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Carmichael:

I like this Man. I shall click.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm common:

nice! hello

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Fusion. It's good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Passaic River Blues:

CRINTING is an excellent word. ... Billy is throttling those drums--thank you, Irwin!
  5:31pm berbo:

I've got blisters on my fingers! just from listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Parq:

Check out the live version of "Noonward" from the 70s fest album "Mar Y Sol". It's on Youtube, although in two parts.
  5:33pm Laura L:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Irwin:

I guess the "r" and "i" upside down = "u."
Avatar 5:36pm northguineahills:

I would expect something a little more reggaeish w/ this trio... nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Passaic River Blues:

@Parq: Will do.
@Irwin: Ah, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Irwin:

Prine does Hank.

Holy shit yes

Avatar 5:51pm V Priceless:

kinks kover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I has 'Paisley Pop'! I put a blue CD tray in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Linda Lee:

my life today in a pop song. luuurv it.
  5:52pm Laura L:

Thanks for a fine show in background of an overabundance of work, work, work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Carmichael:

Yep, probably because the Kinks were on the Pye label early on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Carmichael:

These guys sound sincere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Carmichael:

Marshall Crenshaw does a wonderful version of this Nilsson song. A real tear jerker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Linda Lee:

it sure is. **sniffle **
