Hi Irene, hello one and all. I am over the moon to be able to listen to you live, Irene, happy, happy days. Hope everyone is safe and well

Hi Sean! You're number one commenter today. So glad you can join us!

Afternoon, Irene and all!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Webhamster Henry:

Did you know there's a Sondheim Disco record that just came out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Webhamster Henry:

It must be Irene Monday!
Avatar 12:02pm TDK60:

Hello Irene. I have this Theo B. album. Very moving album (especially now, with so many in grief).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm Irene Trudel:

Hi βrian, james, Henry and TDK60! Glad you're here too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Irene Trudel:

TDK60, Theo's version of Comedy Tonight really hit me recently. Love this album too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm fred:

Good afternoon Irene and listeners
Avatar 12:06pm Sean in Bristol UK:

The Theo Bleckmann track was a thing of beauty
  12:06pm Dean:

Heard Theo in SF this past January, an assortment of German cabaret tunes. Pretty stunning.
Avatar 12:07pm TDK60:

Hello Sean, Got to visit your city two years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm chresti:

Hello Irene, from 9am-ish time
Avatar 12:09pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@TDK60, would have loved to have met up, what a shame. Maybe when travel resumes to some kind of normalcy we can
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm ParUbi:

Hey guys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Irene Trudel:

Hi fred, Dean and Chresti! Glad to have you all checking in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm doctorjazz:

Hi Irene and alli out there!
Avatar 12:12pm TDK60:

Sean, didn't know you then. Stayed with friends in the St. George area. Got to the M-Shed museum, St. Nicholas Market, etc. You have a fine town there.
Avatar 12:13pm Sean in Bristol UK:

In no way am I going to get into Baseball and how much I miss it but last September I got to see my beloved Metsies and got some cool Mets gear for my pup, Lola who you see as my avatar. I am watching live ball from South Korea so getting my fix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Irene Trudel:

Dean, Theo is a great interpreter of German cabaret, as he is originally from there. He's an amazing performer and I've had him on a number of times live. Hey also to you, ParUbi and doctor jazz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm doctorjazz:

Scofield is one of those guitarists you can pick out after a few notes.
  12:14pm Peter K.:

What a brilliant segue from Nick Cave to John Scofield. Perfect -- just like you!
  12:16pm Dan O'D:

Hi Irene! {waves} Coming in loud and clear allllllll the way over here in .... Brooklyn....
Avatar 12:16pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@TDK60, thank you so much for saying that, before this all kicked off you couldn't get from one end of the town to the other without losing the will to live, traffic was brutal but not in the same league as NYC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Peter, and Hi to you, Dan O'D!
Avatar 12:16pm TDK60:

Sean, and oh yeah, visited the Exchange punk cafe/record store/venue on Old Market St.
Avatar 12:19pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@TDK60, oh wow, I was going to see Lief Vollebekk last month but has been rescheduled for November. As always thank you, Irene, for introducing me to this fine artist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Hooray for Irene Day!
  12:21pm Dean:

Bleckmann is a great interpreter of song. One of my favorite tracks of his is a cover of Tom Waits' "Take It with Me" on an album by Moss, a vocal quintet.
Avatar 12:22pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Forget to mention the venue is The Exchange, what's the place like TDK60?
Avatar 12:24pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Dean, my favourite album of Theo's is the Kate Bush covers he did which I knew nothing about until tuning in to Her Goddess' show
Avatar 12:24pm TDK60:

Sean, I was just off the train from Temple Meads railway station, walking into the city in heavy rain with my knapsack and saw it, stopped in for a coffee. What luck. Friendly folks.
  12:24pm Dean:

I still need to get that Kate Bush album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm listener james from westwood:

George!
Avatar 12:26pm TDK60:

"Watch out" folks. Irene knows how to unleash tunes that make you pause...
Avatar 12:27pm TDK60:

Sean, the cafe was humble but good, record store good. The performance part wasn't open.
Avatar 12:27pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@TDK60, moments like that is something to treasure, good on you, my friend
  12:34pm Alan Cynics:

Makes me very happy to listen today....makes a lockdown Monday much, much better :)
Avatar 12:34pm uuee:

Irene! Monday afternoons again. Love it!
Avatar 12:36pm TDK60:

Like I said...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Good day, Irene! Greetings WFMU kin. So happy to be here together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Irene Trudel:

uuee and Granny! I'm loving being back on Mondays to play tunes for all of you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Irene Trudel:

And Alan! Good to have you all locked down in this virtual bunker.
Avatar 12:39pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@uuee, isn't it wonderful, this was my perfect start to the week, it made the Monday blues totally a thing of the past. And it's the perfect time to listen whilst I cook dinner, life has gone from 'ass wiping bad" to 'finger linkin' good"!!
Avatar 12:43pm StringOFperils:

Hello everyone. Happy Monday
Avatar 12:43pm Stork:

Hey all - just getting on the ball here! What a beautiful photo - though a bit sober with those distancing figures... Hi Irene!!!
Avatar 12:46pm Stork:

Aww.. did you dedicate Madman Across the Water to me here in Germany?!? I'm touched. No, really, I'm "tetched."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm fleep:

Good morning, Irene, I'm going to take you outside and make some weeds go away.
Avatar 12:48pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Stork, Guten tag, wie geht es ihnen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Stork! I had a different Madman in mind, but I will dedicate it to you also. Hi fleep!, I like that idea. Wish I has an outdoor garden to do that with.
Avatar 12:55pm Stork:

Hallo Sean,
O sagen wir lieber Du! Es geht mir geschäftlich sehr schlecht, aber Hauptsache sind wir gesund geblieben! Und Du?
I am very badly off on business, but the main thing is that we have remained healthy! And you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm chris:

hi, Irene and folks. really digging this Sontag Shogun track.
Avatar 12:56pm Hubig Pie:

Dreamy.......spacey
Avatar 12:58pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Back in the eighties my German was decent, not so much so can I reply in English? I work as a delivery driver for a well known supermarket chain here in the UK. it's been the seventh circle of hell but I have to be gratefiul that I have a job to go to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey Irene and everyone! Not chattin' but listening!
  1:03pm Peter K.:

What a magnificent first hour. The world is a much, much better place now that Irene Trudel is back on the air!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Doug Schulkind:

@Sean in Bristol, UK
So many people are so grateful to you. And so are we.
  1:04pm Dean:

Malcolm Cecil?
Avatar 1:05pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Doug Schulkind, that means the world to me, thank you so much
Avatar 1:08pm Stork:

YESS!! I WIN THE MADMAN SWEEPSTAKES YET AGAIN!!
Avatar 1:09pm Stork:

Love and appreciation to you, Sean. Did you live in Germany back when?
Avatar 1:11pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Back in the bad old days of the Cold War, ex Forces musician, 1979-1987
Avatar 1:14pm Stork:

Wow. Where were you stationed?
Avatar 1:15pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Munster, Westphalia, Hohne-Belsen and Wolfenbüttel
Avatar 1:16pm Hubig Pie:

I'm here for the Robyn Hitchcock song of the day
Avatar 1:19pm Stork:

Holy shit, I live in Münster!! You were in the barracks in Gievenbeck, right?
Avatar 1:21pm Brian in UK:

Hello Irene, so good that you are letting us listen to your selections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Humbig Pie , chris and Phillippe! Wow, Sean, I had no idea about that side of your life!
Avatar 1:24pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Stork, I loved Munster and would love to revisit, I can't remember the barracks I was in but it was close to York barracks, oh happy memories of going to Rosenplatz for a night out, the home of The Odeon, my first introduction to hearing Frank Zappa on the music system there
Avatar 1:27pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Irene, I played clarinet to a decent level, grade eight for people who know of our grading here. I need to brush off a huge level of dust to get back to playing, pretty disgraceful for my part
  1:30pm Peter K.:

My favorite Beatles song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Irene Trudel:

@Sean, I also once played clarinet in high school marching band. I was pretty bad, and never quite learned to read music. If I heard someone else play the part, I could mimic well enough to get by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

BONZO! YAY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

(and it wasn't MY greenhouse, btw)

Ron Shirt rules.
Avatar 1:36pm Stork:

Vive le Viv!!!
Avatar 1:39pm Stork:

Sean,

if we survive, and you ever make it to Münster, we're going to Pinkus, and many other Kneipen besides!!
Avatar 1:39pm Brian in UK:

I think the 'Doughnut in....' was a euphemism for an outside toilet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

St Viv
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh no, I did not realize that Neil Innes had died. That's very sad.
Avatar 1:42pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Stork, Pinkus, happy memories, my first smell of a 'jazz cigarette', life got better after that!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Phillippe Bastille:

I love the scene in Take the Money and Run where Woody Allen played the cello in the marching band
Avatar 1:45pm Stork:

Sean-I wish the hell they'd make jazz cigarettes legal over here already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Irene, what glee your arrival on the Drummer Stream has caused!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm fleep:

Using white vinegar on weeds makes everything smell like an antipasto ... thank you, weeds, for giving me something to do, now die.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Doug Schulkind:

I have to jump off for a conference Zoom with work. Thanks for the sonic perfection, Irene!
Avatar 1:49pm βrian:

White vinegar? Really?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Michael 98145:

Yup. Weeds don't like no vinegar.
Avatar 1:50pm βrian:

"Don't mitigate glee, " I say.
Avatar 1:51pm Brian in UK:

We use Balsamic over here. Ten year old is best.
Avatar 1:52pm Stork:

Glee should always be intensified.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Doug! Couldn't have done it without your guidance.
Avatar 1:54pm Hubig Pie:

If you really want to torture your weeds, hit them with some Essig Essenz, 25% acid vinegar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Irene Trudel:

fleep, I didn't know that vinegar was a good weedkiller. Gotta be a lot more eco-friendly. Agreed, Stork-- glee should be intensified. I do wish jazz cigarettes were legal to help boot the glee in NYC, where it is sorely lacking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Webhamster Henry:

This is close to the Phil Glass Glassworks pieces.
Avatar 1:59pm Stork:

Reminded me of a Max Richter piece - and a John Adams piece. Loverly.

Good afternoon all :)

@stork - Ahoy there! In dry dock today, grading assignments I'm afraid....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm redkayak:

those canoes are beautiful! one of my anchors for pre-lock-down joy: kayaking the Hanalei River on Kauai in early March. the warm rain falling, the views of the waterfalls in the mountains, and not a care in the world. sigh.
Avatar 2:18pm βrian:

"Bullock hide" is said to be used for those coracles. That seems awfully specific ...

redkayak, lovely skills. Oh for an electric plane, no, a cordless electric plane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm redkayak:

@chris/Brian: Looking forward to warmer temps to get back out! Not sure my short term plans include a boat project. Need to focus on keeping my business afloat, heh....
