Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Asheville Jon:

great start to the show!
  3:17pm Laura L:

There's another of those Auzoux papier-mache mushroom models at the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring, MD. The mushrooms each have a metal stem at bottom that fits into a hole in the base. A great work by a great model maker.
Avatar 3:27pm Wild Neil:

I Favored What you deserve just because Irwin asked. PEACE ALL. THATS A MODEL??!!
  3:27pm burtdawg:

had to favorite
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Itzall Ablurr:

Ipps are great, remind me of X a little in the dissonant "harmonies" the singers were doing.
Avatar 3:30pm Wild Neil:

@Irwin et al-what do you all think of The Handsome Family, Weightless Again? Anybody? Heard them on a k-tell record Alt Country double disk. I shit you not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Asheville Jon:

it's been really nice hearing Captain Beefheart on FMU a lot lately.

the pasture is now!
Avatar 3:36pm acid casualty:

mushrooms grow well in pastures.
  3:37pm Laura L:

@ WN, yes, that is a papier-mache model by the great Auzoux.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Irwin:

They don't look like the shrooms I saute.
  3:39pm Laura L:

You don't saute papier-mache, though, now do ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Irwin:

Speak for yourself!
  3:45pm zopa:

The glue! The glue! I can't find the glue!
  3:47pm berbo:

I have cooked a few of those - morels, boletes, lepiota, and ... black trumpets!
  3:50pm ferf:

Fact: Irwin once played drums in an early-era Sonic Youth

@zopa Carbona NOT glue

What's he talking over?

Cornershop - "Butter the Soul"
Avatar 3:51pm MenfussMike:

Avatar 3:51pm MenfussMike:

Cornershop are a delightful band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Irwin:

Thanks to Hoboken Jack for this Monkees recommendation.
Avatar 3:52pm Hoboken Jack:

My pleasure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Bas NL:

Yeah! Nice song!
Avatar 3:53pm Wild Neil:

Wild Neil loves the Monkees, grew up watching them on WNEW Channel 5 in the 70's and talks about himself in the third person.
  3:54pm Dean:

Everybody else talks about you in the third person, too, @Wild Neil. Sometimes the second.
Avatar 3:54pm Wild Neil:

@Dean-my God, Dean is right! I mean, "you're right!".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If someone is totally forgotten to history, like Pontius Pilate's great-grandmother's hatmaker, is said person being referred to in the zeroeth person?
(Practicing for tonight's Seven Second Delay show.)
  4:01pm Dean:

Bad example, @KenFHP. There's a direct line of descent from PP's great-grandmother's hatmaker to Kevin Bacon's babysitter.
  4:04pm Martin:

Hi Irwin, are the Joe Frank segments you air, archived on WFMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Carmichael:

Taking shrooms and sniffing glue. Made me the man I am today.
  4:06pm ferf:

Speaking of lost in history, did you know Hitler had a sister?
Avatar 4:11pm βrian:

Elmer's glue, I hope.
Avatar 4:15pm βrian:

HoJo's went cafeteria style? I missed that.

Miss those clams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Irwin:

Martin: the audio for the shows remains in the program archives, but the playlist entries are removed at the request of Joe and his wife. Buy episodes at JoeFrank.com. They need the money.
Avatar 4:16pm βrian:

If he had a sister, wouldn't that imply he had a mother? I can't believe that.
Avatar 4:27pm βrian:

"Ich haba dabba doo."
  4:33pm Martin:

Thanks, Irwin. I'll definitely buy his stuff. Thank you for turning me onto his work!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Man. As a pothead, retired shoplifter, and person who once worked the phones to get donations for Carnegie Hall, I can really relate to this episode.
  4:57pm DryEraser:

This stuff is anxiety inducing. Who needs pot when you can listen to this?

Impeach the Trumpster!!!
Avatar 5:06pm Fredericks:

Like a heavy Nickelback.
  5:06pm Dave E:

Thanks for Joe Frank - look forward to it every 2 weeks!
Avatar 5:06pm Fredericks:

Bent Knee, that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Irwin:

Like 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' with a better vocalist.
Avatar 5:07pm Fredericks:

Yeeaaahhh, Irwin.
  5:07pm Dave E:

I like the Bent Knee track! It sounds almost 70ish.
  5:08pm Dean:

Déjà vu...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Irwin:

"The Band Wagon" is a terrific movie -- Seinfeldian in its Nothingness. Great music, dancing, and dialogue, but it didn't have a plot to lose. See it sometime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Michael 98145:

okay - not sure we ever have ...
Avatar 5:21pm Listening Out There:

Band Wagon is my favorite Astaire films, along with Top Hat. Only recently watched Follow the Fleet for the first time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm common:

Good afternoon!
  5:30pm Mike tp:

Some Simon Phillips on drums perhaps.?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Irwin:

Yep! Great trio.
  5:39pm Mike tp:

That Monkeys Tune unknown to me but real killer. Thanks IRWIN,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Irwin:

Thank Hoboken Jack. I missed it til he held a gun to my head and "suggested" it be aired.
  5:49pm Dean:

In case anybody's interested, top baby names of 2016 according to SSA were Emma and Noah. https://www.ssa.gov/oact/babynames/
  5:49pm Mike tp:

And The Thanks goes to HOBOKEN. JACK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm chris:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Asheville Jon:
