  Wed. 5/13/09 3:13pm BSI:

towers.....open.....fire......
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:20pm Miley:

Just thought I'd throw in that *I* am actually cute, and can even sing in tune, which we can't say about everyone on the playlist. And Eminem's got the hots for me, too, to judge from the lyrics on his new CD. Luv ya! <3
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:20pm AnAnonymousParty:

I know a Y. Bhekhirst riff when I hear it.
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:20pm doug from dc:

Here's a better one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/frank-sparrow/3471281174/in/set-72157617108841403/
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:22pm Lizardner Dave:

My weekly dose of Luna. Nice. I remember seeing Galaxie 500 back in my college days two decades ago. I'm old.
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:30pm Laura L:

Same thing happened to me with Luna when that CD was new--bought it for one song I heard no doubt on WFMU and then gave it away upon discovering I only liked one or two songs on it--the ones you have played!
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:32pm Post on again comment board, please:

How to find Amanda tracks?
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:32pm Irwin:

The only other memorable song on PT is "Tracy I Love You." Disappointing.
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:33pm What!:

I found Amanda on youtube. Oh...my...god.

  Wed. 5/13/09 3:47pm jan:

  Wed. 5/13/09 3:53pm BSI:

Irwin, dammit, I gotta leave early today, so get that Verbal Hate Crime in before 4:30pm, EST....
  Wed. 5/13/09 3:55pm Laura L:

I notice on a music calendar that The Bad Plus is playing tomorrow, 5/14, at Merkin Concert Hall on 67th St. at 8 p.m. $35. http://kaufman-center.org/merkin-concert-hall/event/post-jazz-post-rock-the-musical-truth/
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:00pm Amandianity:

Look out, look out, we'z comin!!!!
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:02pm BSI:

Great bubbling moses, this Amanda critter is marvelous.

She's no Corn Weenie, but there's definitely the seed of insane awesomeness in there.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:02pm J-Mar:

Y'know, this Amanda track reminds me of the beginning of Kenny G's show earlier today.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:02pm maria:

somene should sing this amanda next year at hoof n mouth?
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:02pm molerat:

The child is insane.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:03pm maria:

  Wed. 5/13/09 4:03pm Amanda:

Yep. Talent on loan from Godddddddddddddd.

  Wed. 5/13/09 4:14pm fishmonkeystew:

I think mashing up Amanda and Loosenuts together would be rather interesting.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:16pm Crazy Old DJ:

I know more songs than frigging Jack Mudurian, get me a dunkin donuts coffee and stand back
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:18pm ?:

phlegmeriffic
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:18pm JOJO:

i think it is cool that irwin's multiple personalities have multiple personalities
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:21pm Gertrude Baines:

Would you just STFU, please? Damned kids.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:22pm Paul B:

The old codger, fake?! But Professor Dum Dum is real? Right?
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:23pm Answer Person:

As real as someone named Bill Zebub could be. Onion layers.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:25pm Sade:

a real operator
...real....operator...
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:26pm Shhhhh:

Don't anyone tell the old coot what 4:20 means.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:26pm Lizardner Dave:

The Old Codger fake, yeah right. Tell me another one. Kenny G we know is an Irwin character but the Codger is real. I've met him.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:26pm BSI:

Veddy nice baby, Doug.
Did you see the b/w Corpus Callosum vid I finally spit out?
Good noise there.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:28pm Feral Cat:

Ganga tunes!
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:32pm Kingston Kool:

Spliffy Pop, Spliffy Pop, the magic treat!
Cook it up right, mon, it sweetens the beat!
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:33pm Feral Cat:

I mean ganja time...duh
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:35pm doug from dc:

BSI: yes I did, it's awesome! Nuss loved it, too. Come by Solly's Tavern on Sunday and see the new gear in action.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

singularly awful
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:51pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah, Rhonda needs to take some rage lessons from Amanda.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:51pm Lizardner Dave:

Holy shit that Rhonda track was bad. I'm still laughing.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:52pm Laura L:

Rhonda! More Rhonda! That was terrific! She may have been ready to rage, but I don't think she was ready to rock.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:52pm Irwin:

What does the ID "Dead Corporate Eyes" signify?
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:52pm Marshall Stacks:

@Bad Ronald: singing lessons too.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:52pm Announcing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

Amanda and Rhonda -- the new supergroup!
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:53pm Eric Cartman:

I think I'm in love.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:53pm Marshall Stacks:

Just what the Label Industry has been waiting for!
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

nothing
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:56pm Freud:

Sometimes a Pseudonym is just meant to be a Pseudonym...?
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:56pm Ralph Cramden:

My wife Alice went to the moon.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:57pm Alice:

[Crossing arms, speaking slowly] In your dreams, Ralph. Like everything else in your miserable life.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:58pm Calvin Trillan:

My wife Alice went *everywhere*.
  Wed. 5/13/09 4:59pm doug from dc:

The mothership just landed.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:01pm Parq:

I heart the Free Music Archive. I just wish I had more time to spend with it. Like two or three lifetimes.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:02pm Inquiring Minds:

One can't help but wonder what Amanda is like, 20 years on... Perchance youtube Jerserf knows. Or not.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:04pm Richard Simmons:

I love this!
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:05pm doug from dc:

She sings death metal now.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:05pm W.M.:

Erect an F.U.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:07pm Why not a guess?:

Amanda changed her name to Sarah and moved to Alaska?????
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:17pm Irwin:

Sometimes Amanda sounds like JG Thirlwell at age 8.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:19pm Marshall Stacks:

Methinks Mr. Paisley doth protest too much.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:23pm G:

Thanks for the Lee Michaels. I honestly haven't thought of him since "Do You Know What I Mean" was on CKLW back about 1970. Looking into his work while I listen.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:23pm Mrs. Paisley:

I still expect you to put your socks in the hamper. I'm not the fucking Laundry Fairy.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:24pm Palin:

From: Don't worry I'll wipe out all those timesuck sites

justdontfriendmeperiod.com, a social networking site where the point is to have as few people as possible be your eletronic fake friend. Everyone starts with zero, but the coolest members don't even join. Until, of course, so many people have not joined that they all feel mainstream, and join just to avoid that label, thus creating a quantum-mechanics logical contradiction that destroys the internet, and incidentally the cosmos.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:26pm Laura L:

Before Thirlwell's voice changed, yeah, maybe, but without the Aussie dialect and without any sense of lyrics. Jim was probably writing in rhymes like "Do not tailgate me, I drive defensively" (to quote one of many favorites) even as a young lad.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:29pm Irwin:

Re: Thirlwell @ 8 -- I meant the overall level of chaos and industrial-strength noisification.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:30pm N is the Fourteenth Letter:

Thanks for playing the Slint.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:32pm LMAO:

OK, Thirlwell's arranging style, got it...
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:33pm Laura L:

Yeah, I know, but I'm just sayin'. The chaos, though, yeah, maybe. Chaos at 8! Sounds like a good title for a show!
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:34pm Engraved Invitation:

Chaos at eight, and don't be late.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:39pm Todd 76%:

Geez... Andy Pratt, Lee Michaels...Irwin's show often tickles my long-dormant obscure 70's singer-songwriter brain cells. I just found myself googling Brian Protheroe and Thunderclap Newman (technically a band, I know)...what's next for me? Emitt Rhodes?!?! Thanks for yet another fine show, Irwin!
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:52pm Laura L:

Rhonda's dad?
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:53pm ?:

Book her Dano
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:56pm Casio:

We always knew we'd be used to play classic music. Just trust the creativity of the public.
  Wed. 5/13/09 5:58pm Marshall Stacks:

Who are Hart and Papagan? That Korendian stuff (look it up) makes Sun Ra's cosmology seem mainstream.

Like Amanda says, break it down for me!
  Thu. 5/14/09 12:13pm Wavee Davee:

A day without Miley Cirus is like a day without a herpes breakout.
  Thu. 5/14/09 6:20pm ?:

Andy Pratt is still producing great new music! Learn more on his web site: http://andyprattmusic.tripod.com
  Fri. 5/15/09 9:22pm laskitude:

the stamey/holsapple track was DREADFUL! How can talented persons like these be responsible for such horrid dreck?
