Listener comments!

Nate K.:

"Can we get a pool, Dad? Can we get a pool, Dad? Can we get a pool, Dad?"

A bit evocative of Pram!

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

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

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.

Chop Scott:

I'm a happy listener--thanks for being on the air Ira!

I'll play Defending Your Life over your whole set to add an extra layer of observance.

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.

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.

Yay ! Do not get enuff GunClubs.

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

Ahoya Oyrah!
  Swag For Life Member 12:22am

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

North Valley represent JLP Rob Ritter peace

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

Apologies in advance if I miscue a song. I've got something in my eye, and it's annoying and distracting.

A nice glass of Iriash whiskey for Albert Brooks! Hi, all!

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)

Bluh, the gag is supposed to be "Iraish whiskey." Talk about bad eyes.

Thanks for the spin, Ira! I'm glad Darren's running a little late
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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

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...

Good morning all from Abu Dhabi

Vox Pop great live act

i'm just gonna guess that Kurtis just really enjoys BTO and decided to put that track on his album

Never got to see Vox Pop.

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.

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...

Misha Sib:

Greetings from Omsk, Russia to everybody in the world listening to this groovie radio

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

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

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

@Ira Actually it doesn't mean "small towns", gorodki is a Russian traditional game, something like bowling
