Listener comments!

  12:04am Nate K.:

"Can we get a pool, Dad? Can we get a pool, Dad? Can we get a pool, Dad?"
  12:05am Jed:

A bit evocative of Pram!
  12:06am BH:

it's been a rough year for Albert Brooks with Brooks Brothers filing for bankruptcy and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06am mariano:

Ira, Scott, midniters.
  Swag For Life Member 12:08am Ira:

Only figured out at the last minute that today (July 22) is Albert Brooks's birthday, so no Jacques drop-ins, I'm afraid. Please keep listening anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am Chop Scott:

I'm a happy listener--thanks for being on the air Ira!
  12:11am Jed:

I'll play Defending Your Life over your whole set to add an extra layer of observance.
Avatar 12:13am Hoboken Jack:

I'll make the requisite "you know his real name is Albert Einstein" and "you know his brother was Super Dave" comments. Passing the savings onto you fine people.
  Swag For Life Member 12:16am Ira:

Their scene together in Modern Romance is in my brain all the time. Take the box, I'm sure you'll be very happy with it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am Rich in Washington:

The Gun Club summoned me.
Hello everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yay ! Do not get enuff GunClubs.
  12:20am BH:

not sure what it says about the 2018-19 seasons that the empty stadium exhibitions for my team weren't all that weird to watch today and yesterday (I'll consider Tuesday to be "today" until I go to sleep)
Avatar 12:22am Roberto:

Ahoya Oyrah!
  Swag For Life Member 12:22am Ira:

As a long-time Mets fan, I've seen empty stadiums before. It's a better look than the fake crowd.
  12:22am sufferwords:

North Valley represent JLP Rob Ritter peace
  12:23am BH:

the fake noise wasn't too obvious in the games I was watching, so maybe their TV mix was just right, or they figured they didn't need to make it too loud when they scored a run while down 15-5
  Swag For Life Member 12:24am Ira:

Apologies in advance if I miscue a song. I've got something in my eye, and it's annoying and distracting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25am Ken From Hyde Park:

A nice glass of Iriash whiskey for Albert Brooks! Hi, all!
  12:29am BH:

I hear the people who are really mad about MLB players taking a knee have pledged to not attend any games this season. (I'm sure this joke was already made on Twitter)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

Bluh, the gag is supposed to be "Iraish whiskey." Talk about bad eyes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am Scott Williams:

Cueing up "A Star is Bought" for later's Albert b'day tribute

No home is complete without an eye wash station. Hello Ira, Scott, Nate, HP Ken, all.

Yep, I realized all that last year upon Bob Einstein's passing. Mind = buh-lown.

He should have sued the other Albert Einstein to change his name.

This hour is Movin p quick @Ira, good set..
  Swag For Life Member 12:48am Ira:

@Roberto: It's working for Lady A!

Oh right, the ol' Lady A v Lady A saga.

Those cardboard cutouts of baseball fans aren’t even looking at their phones
  Swag For Life Member 12:55am Ira:

Then they don't even look realistic.
Avatar 12:56am Joe B:

assuming the ones at Dodger Stadium will leave in the seventh inning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00am chaos_in_la_la:

its only 9:59 has the seventh inning even happened yet? I haven't even spit my peanut shells on the seat in front of me yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am Scott Williams:

Thanks for the spin, Ira! I'm glad Darren's running a little late
Avatar 1:06am Mike W:

exactly @Ira, I just find the whole thing a little hard to believe. Fans sitting attentively and quietly? I just don’t know if that’s ever been anyone’s experience.

@Joe B they have to, they got there in the 3rd inning and the parking meter on their cardboard cutout of a car is about to run out

  1:12am BH:

the cutouts could be worse... they could have put ventriloquist dummies in the stadium

Unrelated to everything: I am now aware that Kurtis Blow covered "Takin Care of Business".. which... yeah...
Avatar 1:15am Paulo AD:

Good morning all from Abu Dhabi
  1:16am sufferwords:

Vox Pop great live act
  1:16am BH:

i'm just gonna guess that Kurtis just really enjoys BTO and decided to put that track on his album
  Swag For Life Member 1:17am Ira:

Never got to see Vox Pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am mariano:

Wow Scott, I didn't know you were in Fairport Convention! ;) Ok, I might've read the set list wrong at first...

Hello Abu Dhabi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Actually know a fiddler played Irish Trad weekly @ the local pub back when that sort of thing happened in the Olden World had been in Fairport @ some point. Said they 'didn't know what to do with him' - so not illustrious apparently...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...received information - could be cutout news
- but he's fairly accomplished & they made the circuit for decades...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35am mariano:

RevRabbit: I'm picturing him as the older horn player in The Commitments, the one with all the stories about playing with Sam Cooke, etc.
  1:35am Misha Sib:

Greetings from Omsk, Russia to everybody in the world listening to this groovie radio
  1:35am sufferwords:

Great set/ Vox Pop probably never made it out of LA - possibly frisco
  Swag For Life Member 1:36am Ira:

@Misha Sib: you're just in time! Is there a way to write this title using the English alphabet????
  1:41am Misha Sib:

@Ira ok, it's "Gorodki"
  1:44am Misha Sib:

@Ira Actually it doesn't mean "small towns", gorodki is a Russian traditional game, something like bowling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am mariano:

Interesting, Misha.

Now I wanna make a T-bone steak.

Hound Dog Taylor's Gimme Back My Wig would just dovetail, huh?
Avatar 1:55am Joe B:

thought the T-Bones were gonna be next!
  Swag For Life Member 1:58am Ira:

That they weren't proving, or at least demonstrating, that it wasn't planned.
Avatar 1:59am Joe B:

guess I meant 'hoping'!
  2:00am BH:

Lloyd Thayer's nickname isn't T-Bone?
  Swag For Life Member 2:01am Ira:

Blasted Virtual DJ--I can't even pull out Doug Sahm doing T-Bone Shuffle.
Avatar 2:02am Joe B:

@BH - it is now!
  Swag For Life Member 2:08am Ira:

At least I was able to play one of my favorite Wizz "T-Bone" Jones numbers.
