Hi ho Ira the K! My teenage son requested a Rezillos LP for Xmas. Santa delivered.

I had no idea that Isley's cut was a Bert Berns production. So great! Welcome back!

...you'll have to settle for a Traditional Belfast choon by VanMorrison here...MC5 next ?! :)

"There was a day
not so long in the past
when it was easier to get a gun on a Sunday
Than drink in Belfast.."

A true Belfast song by

Ira is a profoundly, lovely, significant name.
In all caps .. IRA .. is where Americans lose their
savings or Irish folks their blood..

I promise I'll lighten up

Thanks Ira!!!!!!!

off to see the 2nd 1/2 of Madrid vs Liverpool..

Off... Thanks Ira.. a tremendous mix.... will it be archived????
so I can catch the rest???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm

Morphe brought up IRA, and there's a thing called Roth IRA, so that reminded me I never read anything by Philip Roth, who died recently. I browsed a couple of books but put them back. Should I give his writing a try?

Fred, Plillip Roth was a wonderful writer. I hope you'll give him a try and hope you'll want to read everything. He was so sharp,funny and unsparing.

Hey everybody! Thanks so much for filling in, Ira. I sent my fill-in listener home this afternoon.

Hi there Hoboken Jack!

Maybe "Goodbye Columbus" or "Portnoy's Complaint". He was fierce and fearless. :)

as of this song I now believe in magic.

Ira, it's been beachy!

Thanks geezerette! I have a pile to read through before going back to my favorite bookshop, but I'll keep that in mind. And for context's sake, this is what my fave bookshop looks like: www.google.com...

@geezerette: I don't think so (hard to say for sure, the basement is even more crowded). But there's coffee, tea, and maple syrup to be found hidden between the piles (it's a Canadian bookshop)

I love Paris. :) So beautiful and the people are wonderful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm

@geezerette: That's so puzzling to me: it's so boringly gray to me. And the people are so casually hostile. Then again, I was born there, but never could afford to live there. We should meet next time you go there, maybe meet at that bookshop

Never heard of Electric Express but love this!
Avatar 5:00pm

The processed sax on "It's The Real Thing" reminds me of Chris Wood's playing on Wynder K. Frog's lp.
Mike Sin:

Ira, You’re reaching the beaches — great show today!
Avatar 5:01pm

To echo Mr. Sin's thought, both this and last night's show were/are terrific. Thank you, Ira! I know you've got a band and a life and everything, but that doesn't stop me from wishing you were part of the weekly 'FMU line-up.

Summer and Michael:

Great show, Ira! Longtime fans of your group, loving this fill-in. Thank you!

One of my fave LPs of all time was Fakenews. It was so unlikely, unexpected, yet somehow necessary. I just had to go with it.
Avatar 5:17pm

Speaking as a Detroit native, allowing that the MC5's original was given execrably bad production by Jon Landau, this cover does not best it...not by a long shot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm

@Reeshard: is there a MC5 cover that you would recommend? I like covers, so I'd probably enjoy it
Greg From Brooklyn:

Excellent show Ira... hope to have you back soon on Saturday afternoon!!!

@ fred: You are addressing the liturgical music of my native land. No substitutions allowed.

Hi Ira. It’s katie. Rob’s board up can’t get in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm

@Reeshard: Even if the Dirtbombs do it?

Just saw Darren's e-mail he is downstairs trying to get buzzed in.. just in case he's still stuck down there.
Great show!
Avatar 5:43pm
Sean B.:

Superb show. I don't know why but everytime I hear Johnathan Richman I can't help but think of the Neighborhoods. I have always felt that Prettiest Girl is one of the unsung greatest Boston, MA pop/rock singles to ever be. Huh?.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm

Soon after I started my current job, a coworker told me in a challenging way that all alt/punks were actually art school students acting out. I submitted The Ramones as a counter-example, and got fleeting respect
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm

Ira, Thank you for another AMAZING show!!! I always look forward to when you're behind the turntables..Cheers!!!

Thanks Ira, I enjoyed the show a lot (proof is I'm still listening when I should be getting some sleep instead)

Thanks so much Ira. That was awesome!
