  Wed. 12/3/08 3:42pm Lizardner Dave:

Ike, I have my copy, and my wonderful memories.

Great show by Irwin so far too.
  Wed. 12/3/08 3:51pm Bad Ronald:

Stew is cool!
  Wed. 12/3/08 3:53pm Cecile:

Is this from his musical?
  Wed. 12/3/08 3:56pm Parq:

The humor in that Stew song was really meaty. Get it? Stew? Meaty? Oh, I gotta tell ya . . .

'Cile, I saw that show and don't remember that song in it.
  Wed. 12/3/08 3:58pm GP:

Oh man, off listening to another on-line station and I miss all of dis...WHAT was I thinking?
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:00pm Cecile:

  Wed. 12/3/08 4:16pm GP:

O.K. Irwin...now this has gone beyond the awesomeness scale.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:17pm Lizardner Dave:

It's Rockcember!
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:18pm Lizardner Dave:

I can't hear this song without thinking of Leslie Nielsen and Priscilla Presley squirting mustard on each other.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:22pm GP:

Is this the metal dude Danzigs mom?
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:23pm Cecile:

Is that the Leslie that's going to be at Rockefeller Center?
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:24pm AnAnonymousParty:

Patricia, Patricia, Patricia!
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:25pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:28pm Mike B.:

The Queens! Oh mama!
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:32pm Peter K.:

"I'm Into Something Good" a Carole King song? Well, yes and no. Like all those other great hits she co-wrote, it's a Carole King AND GERRY GOFFIN song. Poor Gerry, who wrote the lyrics to all those songs, never gets enough credit, maybe because he never went the singer-songwriter route. (Carole did start writing her own lyrics when she went that route herself, but even then only once in a while. This is no knock on Carole King, just a statement of fact.)

As for Hannah Montana: Love the TV show, hate the music.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:32pm steve:

my 70 yr old father was just dancing to qotsa yelling, "look at my hips going! my repaired hips!" true story
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:33pm Listener Grovesnor:

Iwrin, where do you inherit your awesome programming talents from?!??
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:34pm GP:

Steve..that is the best thing I have heard all day. Get him to a dance hall, the ladies will love it.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:37pm trent:

Lee Hazlewood Live From The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:37pm Peter K.:

Grovesnor, I will tell you who I am only if you tell me who you are.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:38pm Laurie:

I actually said, "Oh, I love this song," when I heard the intro to "Sand." And I do. This OP8 album is the best. I wish they would team up again and put another one out.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:38pm Irwin:

damn, Grovesnor's last comment disappearitated.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:41pm Mac:

Flashback rush. Wheesh!
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:44pm Parq, really:

Hey, I thought you said that other comment was my last.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:45pm Laurie:

Conjecture: Irwin plays popular country for us because he secretly loathes his listeners.

Although, if I'm being perfectly honest, this Brad Paisley song isn't completely awful.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:46pm Parq:

As always, I respectfully dissent from my fellow listeners' distaste for kickin' country.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:47pm GP:


Pizeace Out * taps chest flips peace sign

Did Brad just sample the Mac startup tone? This song is too funny. I read somewhere that something like 30% of people using a female screen name are actually dudes...analyze that.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:47pm Cecile:

you lie, Laurie.
The words make me want to hit my head against my desk.
the tune and sanging is nice, though.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:48pm Irwin:

PK, know anything about Vin Strong?
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:48pm Laurie:

Oh, come on, this marching band rendition at the end is a nice touch.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:51pm Cecile:

I'd buy that part if it were a single by itself.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:51pm Lizardner Dave:

Just walked back in the office and see that I missed the Star Country moment. Blast.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:52pm bzul:

The obscure vectors of comment intention and identification are fraying the smooth linen of the show...and Brad soiled it with flat canned country punch o' the day from the factory.
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:52pm Peter K.:

Not a thing, Irwin. Know anything about Grovesnor? (By the way, that was not me who just responded. That was a fake PK.)
  Wed. 12/3/08 4:54pm Cecile:

bzul, I'm the glue that keeps this whole wacky factory together, and don't forget it.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:00pm Cecile:

and be over 18, or pretending to be over 18, or Brad Paisley
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:01pm bzul:

Yes...someone from the Glue Glue Dolls needs to here for fast repairs and a lasting bond!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:01pm SLRecords:

Great to hear some Moondog - we're putting together an album of Moonodg covers - still looking for artists so can you give us a shout out - any artists interseted in submitting a cover version can find more details at www.slrecords.net

great show!

  Wed. 12/3/08 5:02pm Cecile:

*starts up the Gluemobile*
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:02pm Bad Ronald:

I, for one, represent... er I mean resent today's show title!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:04pm Cecile:

i didin't know there were verses to "let's all sing like the birdies sing"

WFMU, the gift that keeps on giving.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:05pm Cecile:

Ol' Man Irwin, he just one keeps on rolling, just keeps on rolling, keeps on rolling along
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:06pm Louis Armstrong:

I often say that to myself Parq.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:07pm George Bailey:

You can say that again, Satchmo!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:08pm Satchmo:

I often say that to myself Parq.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:10pm bzul:

If you want to do a thing real badly....?
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:13pm Susan DeLint:

I Love Hands
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:14pm Malcolm McClaren:

You need hands!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:15pm noel:

it would make me happy to hear something off the new Max Tundra
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:16pm Clark Barr:

Help! I've OD'd on Bran Flakes! Help!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:18pm Laura L:

The only cure for Bran Flakes OD is more Bran Flakes!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:18pm Susan DeLint:

I bet some YMO would help with your OD.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:20pm Cecile:

or an Imodiumtini
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:21pm ?:

  Wed. 12/3/08 5:21pm Clark Barr:

All these Bran Flakes have dropped my cholesterol to -50! I need a dozen Wendy's Triple Bacon Cheeseburgers FAST!!!!!!
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:22pm bzul:

We had to listen to and learn songs from an album about the Catholic sacraments in elementary school. Please, please , Santa, bring that record to the Bran Flakes so there might be glorious transubstantiation of it. Amen.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:30pm Cecile:

I love the Bats.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:31pm bzul:

Britney and circus....I see a parade of clowns in miniskirts without undies exiting a small vehicle ungracefully.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:32pm Oatman:

Quarterly Payola check is in the mail Irwin. Also sending a large check for more pay-for-r-stevie-moore-play.
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:33pm Joe Bacon:

One minus about living in Los Angeles--Every day is Britney Day--except when her kid sister gets pregnant again...
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:41pm Joe Bacon:

Supposedly, Britney's kid sister is pregnant again! So which one is yours???????
  Wed. 12/3/08 5:44pm Joe Bacon:

  Wed. 12/3/08 5:45pm monica:

  Wed. 12/3/08 6:00pm Bad Ronald:

  Wed. 12/3/08 10:59pm Irwin:

re: Winston's Fumbs ("Real Crazy Apartment") --
"It's a little ironic that Jimmy Winston, the former organ player of the Small Faces, who was kicked out right at the dawn of their recording career, went on to actually forge a sound that was far more defiantly psychedelic than that of his former buddies. Sure it was for one single only, but next to 'Real Crazy Apartment', stuff like 'Green Circles' and 'Itchycoo Park' sound like Quicksilver Messenger Service next to Black Sabbath. This song tears! Deep, rumbling production, guitar chords (Winston switched to guitar after leaving Marriott and Co.) that sound like they're coming straight out of the mouth of Beelzebub himself, scary falsetto harmonies, and such a terrifying mood. Supposedly it's just a song about the charms and seductions of a hipster apartment, but if you don't take in the lyrics word by word, you'd think it was the devil himself welcoming you to the apartment in question. "Satanic psychedelia", eh? Something like that. Okay, so it's certainly very tame by the Stooges' standards, but still the sound is quite unique for 1967, which is a pretty big compliment given that in 1967, "unique" was almost casual." http://starling.rinet.ru/music/nuggets.htm#Winston
