Listener comments!

  Wed. 5/7/08 3:10pm Bad Ronald:

Howdy!
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:10pm greg:

It's Irwin time! For those of us who find genre-surfing tolkienism hobbit-forming.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:10pm Bruce:

Irwin, nice to have you back at the switches. Always enjoy your selections.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:13pm Eekkii:

Uh oh, you made a joke at Maria's expense. Watch out. I fear that she will capture your soul in a Hellish cursed roll of film as payback.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:14pm north guinea hills:

huh, i never knew that this track was gotan project. i have this on a dj firehorse mix. i used to dj this all the time. i love this. awesome thanks for the relevation irwin!
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:27pm sola:

The Train and the River rocked!!
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:28pm ?:

santa maria (del buen aire)
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:31pm Jonathan Steinke:

Oiwin--yay!!!
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:33pm C:

I've been smashing all the glass in my office to cope with another Maria-less week.

No offense, Irwin.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:34pm Bruce:

I did NOT steal those underpants!!!!
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:36pm Katya:

Irwin!
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:37pm Claire:

Irwin you became a taget! oui know u get ease angry but we love you at least i do...
hugsss
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:37pm Bad Ronald:

nice Zep cover.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:38pm Happy Listener:

Hooray for Irwin on a Wednesday afternoon! This is a killer version of Immigrant Song.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:38pm Claire:

Thanksssssssssssssssssssssssss for the bad plus i love those kids..........more hugss
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:39pm Bad Ronald:

sounds a bit like Mike Garson on the piano.
  Wed. 5/7/08 3:50pm Parq:

Loved that Mike Doughty track. The old Soul Coughing stuff was brilliant, and Mike's new solo stuff preserves the core of the old stuff's appeal. I heard he went through some serious shit, so its good to see him still in the game.
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:09pm jonathan:

thanks for the pretenders. had this in my head all day yesterday.
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:28pm Katya:

Perri is pals with Ken Nordine. He is alive and well.
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:28pm Parq:

Ol pal, Michael Shelly just interviewed Ken Nordine fairly recently. He is in his 80s and still sharp enough to riff a little spontaneous number-one-hit word-jazz on Michael's show.
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:39pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Damn. I was so busy listening to the New Jersey tracks in On the Download that I completely forgot Irwin was actually on the air today. Irwin, please come back to a regular DJ slot as soon as possible. I've been trying to come up with adequate words to describe what you bring to the 'FMU worldview, but am just throwing up my hands and saying "I miss you!"
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:42pm Katya:

That word might be "curmudgeonliness"
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:43pm Irwin:

I'll take that as a compliment, Katya dear.
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:48pm claire:

Irwin is mine!! is that clear curmudgeonlinesses
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:50pm east-bay west-coast:

Awesome! Gamelan is one of my favorite musical events in the world. I was going to say this sounds like Carl Stalling, then I saw that it actually was. Too f-ing cool!
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:52pm Irwin:

Raymond Scott, actually.
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:52pm east-bay west-coast:

OK - Raymond Scott, but almost more famous for its Carl Stalling/Bugs Bunny connotations
  Wed. 5/7/08 4:53pm J:

Please, it's the brilliant eccentric Raymond Scott! But Porky and Daffy danced to a lot of his tunes....
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:00pm Parq:

Yeah, really, attributing "Powerhouse" to Carl Stalling is something too many people already do.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:03pm Sanon.:

Hoogarayy!
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:06pm east-bay west-coast:

Carl Stalling - the original mashup pastiche king. Him & Charles Ives.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:07pm Katya:

Yes! Birthday ELO! Three cheers for Otis! And three more for IC on the Summer Schedule!
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:10pm ?:

with cute Boys Better right Katya?
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:17pm Mr Fab:

Happy B-Day, Otis. Now get back to finishing that Bran Flakes album! *cracks whip*

Irwin: Thanks for playing my RIAA mashup last time.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:18pm Katya:

Back in high school, Herbie Mann's GAGAKU AND BEYOND was one of the records I loaned most often. Hay, Mr Fab! Cheers, brotha!
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:22pm Mr Fab:

Hey there, Katya! Yeah, I have lots of Herbie Mann records - at the used record stores they were the cheapest thing in the jazz section for some reason.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:24pm Katya:

Lara Bars?
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:27pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Katya: yes, "curmudgeonliness" works.

Happy birthday to Otis from me as well. Irwin, can you please find a song that is whiny and bitchy and ball-bustin', all at the same time, to play in his honor?
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:31pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Doesn't Brad Paisley know that the word "facial" has more than one meaning?

Anyway, his description of guys' behavior sounds a lot like my ex-girlfriend.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:31pm Laurie:

I don't think I'd want to date Brad Paisley.

I bet he wouldn't remove the Trucknutz from his Ford if he lived in Florida.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:35pm Monkey Fan:

Nothing like a bunch of smiling monkeys in your lap
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:35pm Parq:

I confess I find listeing to Paisley's songs to be the male equivalent of reading "Cathy". But in fairness, the tune more than satisfied Denise's request.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:36pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Irwin's on the Summer Schedule? Excellent! In the usual Wednesday spot? I can't find any info on the 'FMU site.

Parq, I have to agree with you re: the song. Re: "Cathy," have you ever seen the Spanish version that the Onion runs? Makes the strip a lot easier to stomach.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:39pm Katya:

This song fits the "whiny and bitchy and ball-bustin'" and makes me feel small. So why am I working out to it?
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:40pm Sean Daily:

Glug... I don't remember "What Have You Done for Me Lately" running that long... head hurts... room spinning...
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:44pm Ken:

Happy birthday Otis! Vaginal or Cesarian? Hello Mister Fab!!
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:57pm crowe:

yo irwin wadda swell show!
never,
crowe
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:57pm Happy Listener:

...but they're never songs about ME!
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:58pm Happy Listener:

I just can't feel that "Star Country" love.
  Wed. 5/7/08 5:59pm Happy Listener:

Diggin' everything else, tho'. ^_^
  Wed. 5/7/08 6:00pm otis:

thanks for the birthday wishes! of all days for my computer to crash, today was the day - finally got it fixed but I missed ELO, so will be listening to the archives. thanks mister master Irwin. and thanks again to you all for the real nice words. and ken, it tell everyone it was immaculate birth, but really it was in a bunker in the nevada desert and i remember you and some probe like instrument!
  Wed. 5/7/08 6:01pm Happy Listener:

Happy Birthday, Otis! Listening to Bran Flakes keeps me regular!
  Thu. 5/8/08 2:09pm otis:

goddamn you all made a grown man blush. and janet's control album is a classic, nice to hear it again.
