Welcome Ira!!! So cool to have you spin some vinyl for us!

hi ya all

Happy to be here!

love this one
Avatar 9:30pm

"Come Up And See Me.." is a fave song of mine. Duran Duran also do a great live version of this. Great to hear you on WFMU Ira! I must say Yo La Tengo's "Big Day Coming" is also a fave tune of mine:)
  Swag For Life Member 9:32pm

I played Make Me Smile at a Mergefest a bunch of years ago, as part of the had-to-be-seen-to-believe Double Dynamite.

hello Ira and everyone!

Oh, that sounds really cool.

Rob (Jerzcity):

I joined one song too late. Wizzard would have been a nice nightcap after listening to Mr. Belock spinnin' the Move so much this afternoon
Avatar 9:38pm

Didn't Ross Bagdasarian create The Chipmunks?

Good ol’ Dave Seville!

Very fun show, Ira. Until you played that last one (just kidding). Great show. Thanks.
Avatar 9:42pm

Oh that's right Joey. I had a lot of Chipmunks' records when I was a wee girl. Dad would cur up a stack of them on my record player at bedtime and they'd play as I fell asleep.
Avatar 9:42pm

D'uh I meant to say cue not cur!

Makes a little more sense in that context!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm

digarooni, haha

Saw the Q here in a Philthydelphia early 90s once & they ordered a pizza that got delivered to them on stage during their “union break.”

not sure if I wanna try and find the election results for the union representation election described in that message to Western Electric

Avatar 10:10pm

Hey Joey, I lived in Philly the summer I was 19. I shared a house with some Penn students, scooped ice cream at Hilary's on South Street and listened to a lot of WKDU and WXPN as i read lots of books:)

Del Shannon singing "Under My Thumb" like it's the unofficial sequel to "Runaway"

I’ve been to Hillary’s! I was just on Penn’s campus today. That NRBQ gig was at the Chestnut Cabaret! And WKDU is still a fave. XPN is pretty formulaic at this point since it is no longer student run.

Fun fact: my first ever YLT show was at Penn’s Museum of Archeology & Anthropology auditorium!
Avatar 10:23pm

Oh cool. When I lived in Philly I didn't go to many shows because I was underage. I did go to a 4AD Records party at Revival -- the club t hat used to be a bank. I also had every intention to go see Half Japanese playing in a Drexel parking garage but I spent so much time getting dressed/doing my hair and makeup that by the tie I got there Jad Fair and co. were playing their last song:(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm

Sittin' On My Sofa is a great title for a rock song.
Avatar 10:31pm

Been loving the show Ira. <3
  Swag For Life Member 10:33pm

I even argued with the Velvet Underground--what a great lyric!
  Swag For Life Member 10:35pm

Where'd that trumpet come from?!
Avatar 10:35pm

Perhaps it's better to be shown the door to bohemia than to have bohemia show you the door?
Avatar 10:37pm

Hey Ira, I'm writing a biography of Wendy O. Williams from The Plasmatics. Did you ever cross paths with her during your New York Rocker days?

Hey, it's my segment!
  Swag For Life Member 10:41pm

You beat me to the dedication, Georgia!
Tim 07030:

I just thought of Karen Valentine for the first time in 30 years.

  Swag For Life Member 10:46pm

I don't believe I ever saw the Plasmatics. Was intrigued by how large a role they played in Mickey Leigh's I Slept With Joey Ramone.
Avatar 10:50pm

Oh, I have to read that book now--thanx for the tip. I emailed Mickey some weeks ago but never heard back. Is there anyone else you recommend I contact? If this is too much to ask you to do during the course of your show my email is rleisgrau@gmail.com

I heard John and Yoko also recorded a song about Slim Jims but that it was never released

Ira! So great to hear you on the air. The Spanish I understand is on the menu at Cal Pep! Cheers!!
Avatar 11:12pm

I think I heard Schlock Rod on Dr. Demento way back when.

I've never heard that Don Julian track before!

Part 2 is much chillier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm

that Jerry McCain track was smokin'!

Fantastic show tonight

So much great stuff

Delicious ear candy, thanks Mister DeeJay.

the whole show has been great but this set is fire.

The Sandpipers—finally!
  Swag For Life Member 11:39pm

I wondered if you were still up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm
Phillippe Bastille:

Nice show Ira. See ya!
Rick G:

Thanks for a great way to spend a Monday evening, Ira.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm
Gaylord Fields:

Up and dancing, thanks to the Sandpipers (a phrase certainly making its world debut). Thanks, Ira!
Avatar 11:43pm

Hi Gaylord! Like I mentioned to Ira earlier in the comments, I'm under contract to write a biography of Wendy O. Williams. Did you ever cross paths with her or know anyone who did who I could contact?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm
Gaylord Fields:

Robin, if I put some thought into it, perhaps I can think of someone who could help. All I can recall personally was that in the dressing room at the Mudd Club, I believe it was, someone defaced graffiti of the band's name so that it now read as "Blasmatios"! I hope you can use that — maybe even as the book title. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm

i just assumed gaylord lived at the station 24/7, and his downtime was simply lounging around in a bathrobe and slippers waiting to get back on the air...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm
Gaylord Fields:

@TheLoneliestMonk: That's silly. I'm barely there at all.
Avatar 11:49pm

You know, I just might use that. Does Blasmatios mean anything? Anyhoozle, please email me if you think of anyone. Hugs to you and the Missus:)
Avatar 11:50pm

Gaylord was sighted recently DJing in Brooklyn and his set was so wild the police almost shut the whole bar down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm
Gaylord Fields:

It's likely just someone changing the band's name to make it even sillier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm
Gaylord Fields:

@Clyde: OK, that is kinda true. Only in Bushwick do cops enforce repealed cabaret laws.
Avatar 11:52pm

In one of my interviews with Richie Stotts he told me about how he went to the Mudd Club one night with his blue Mohawk hair do and Frank Zappa was there. Shortly thereafter there was a song on a Zappa album called "Mudd Club" mentioning a guy with a blue Mohawk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm

great, eclectic mix tonight Ira.
well done...
