Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/17/09 3:02pm ?:

long live anal magic
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:03pm Dave B:

get me thru the rest of the work day Irwin!
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:07pm Spencer:

Yes! Rare Amanda tracks!
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:07pm Dave B:

  Wed. 6/17/09 3:08pm to a MR. DAVE B:

thats what i said
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:10pm BSI:

Amanda is the son of GOD.
...or something.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:11pm Amanda Fan Club:

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our sweet girl. Such joy.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:12pm Lawrence Welk:

Wunnerful Wunnerful! She sure would fit right in with my musical family!
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:13pm sounds like a real toy typewriter:

  Wed. 6/17/09 3:14pm Spencer:

Thanks for that Irwin! Now you can play whatever you like for a bit.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:20pm BSI:

Spencer: don't set Irwin free TOO much.
He's gotta treat Amanda tracks with the same scheduled reverance as station IDs... We all need a regular fix.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:24pm Parq:

And, thanks to the new RIAA reporting requirements, Miss Amanda gets a shiny new 37 cents every time Irwin treats us to another one of her stellar performances.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:26pm to a MR. PARQ:

i got 13 cents on IT NUKS
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:27pm Ike:

37 cents? Really? So it costs more than some jukeboxes? It's not $0.037 or $0.0037? That's insane.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:28pm Spencer:

BSI: You're right. I should have specified that: a bit = 10 minutes or 3 songs max.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:39pm Parq:

A confession: I got the 37-cent figure from listening to one of Ken's monologues this AM, and not listening terribly closely at that. But guys, don't you think Amanda is *worth* 37 cents a play?
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:39pm ginger tim:

A Slam Dunk!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:39pm Joe Bacon:

Ah, the return of Candypants! :-)
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:40pm Parq:

  Wed. 6/17/09 3:40pm Laura L:

Irwin, you got a mattress on your back?
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:41pm gumby:

are candy pants like edible underwear?
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:41pm Clark Barr:

A Slam Dunk in Swimming Trunks!
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Irwin is definitely playing to the crowd with this set...
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:43pm D.B. Cooper:

I have heard this Amanda several times now on WFMU, what is the story behind her?
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:45pm to a MR. D.B. COOPER:

  Wed. 6/17/09 3:47pm D.B. Cooper:

Yes, but I would like to know more about my lord and savior, you can't have religion without mythology.
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:50pm Bad Ronald:

@ DBC - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBySvb5zBNg
  Wed. 6/17/09 3:52pm Parq:

Coop, Amanda is like Santa Claus or that kid who suckered Armistad Maupin - we can't offer you proof, you just have to believe.

PS - Note: "suckered" -- ER-ed. Wiseguy . . .
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:07pm Amanda Fan Club:

It's great to see the innocent newcomers just waiting to be saved by Amanda's grace
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:11pm Dave B:

Perhaps we can have an Amanda Fund Raiser to get some of her stuff pressed. From someone close:

"We hope to press a record at some point of Amanda's exploits for sure, as soon as I can save up enough money.:
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:17pm Lizardner Dave:

Uh, this is going to be mashed or Traktored....right?
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:18pm Irwin:

Pray, Dave. Pray hard.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:18pm ?:

Oh, joy. An ironic song selection. Suck is still suck.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:20pm Irwin:

That spin was irony-deficient.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:22pm Happy Listener:

Irwin, thanks for playing "Empty Boy", your buddy Lane sounds awesomely influenced by XTC.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:24pm Spencer:

I really liked "Empty Boy"! As Happy Listener said, very reminiscent of XTC.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:29pm Happy Listener:

@Rad Bonald: I'm curious, does Amanda know she's on the 'net, and is "Jerserf" aware of Amanda's WFMU fame?
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:30pm Parq:

Gang, not to take any audience away from SSD at UCB, but Loudon Wainwright and a couple of his relatives are doing a free gig in Mad Sq Park, NYC, at 6 tonight.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:31pm Ike:

I am with Lizardner Dave and ? on this one. That Extreme song was extreme bison dung by extremely meatheaded doofuses.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:31pm Dave B:

@ Happy Listener - Jerserf definitely is aware
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:32pm Lizardner Dave:

Lane and RSM's "What Do I Do With The Rest Of My Life" is pure pop genius and a pretty funny youtube video too.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:44pm V:

Real radio here.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:45pm Joe Bacon:

  Wed. 6/17/09 4:45pm John:

OMG! This (Amanda) is the greatest thing I've heard in years!
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:46pm John:

I'd love to hear Miley cover this.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:47pm Joe Bacon:

I believe that Amanda is the 21st century answer to Jobriath
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:47pm Amanda Fan Club:

She topped herself this time
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:47pm Lizardner Dave:

I hope the RIAA finds Amanda.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:48pm Happy Listener:

Amanda's singing really reminds me of "Lady Sniff" by Butthole Surfers
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:49pm Jerserf:

hey ya'll! :) THANK YOU!!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:50pm Jerserf:

Just walking in the door from Alabamy, visiting my sis... i showed her this page and all of the archived shows, she was really in awe of the attention
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:51pm Marshall Stacks:

@Joe Bacon :
I'll bite.

Jobriath is to David Bowie as Amanda is to ...?
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:52pm Jerserf:

Hey Irwin, she's coming to visit me in NY next month... maybe we could take the train down and I could introduce you ;) hehehe
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:52pm Happy Listener:

@MStacks: Tina Turner
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:53pm Joe Bacon:

Marshall, I can still remember when Jobriath was compared to a "?" too!
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:54pm Amanda Fan Club:

Irwin you MUST meet her you lucky dude
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:55pm Idea Man:

"Win a date with Amanda" fundraiser!!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:55pm Marshall Stacks:

Don't ask, don't tell.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:56pm Lizardner Dave:

Signed Amanda CD-Rs = killer marathon premium.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:58pm Happy Listener:

Don't care, can't tell.
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:58pm John:

Great idea'r Liz Dave! I'd give plenty o' ducats to my fave rave playing station for that!
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:58pm Bad Ronald:

I vote for an Amanda Cookie party!!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 4:59pm Jerserf:

  Wed. 6/17/09 5:06pm texas scott:

your show is swingin' today,Irwin.
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:12pm G:

Amanda -- Latin for "she who must be loved"

nuff said.
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:12pm still b/p:

What's the WFMU equivalent of the Hasty Pudding Club's Woman of the Year -- Woof of the Mu?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:15pm texas scott:

Hasty Moo of the WOOF WOOF,b/p
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:20pm Bad Ronald:

Didn't know there was a Baseball Calypso genre. Got any Hockey Klezmer Irwin?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:22pm still b/p:

Fooey of the Munth: Just found out the Sir Richard Bishop, Oaxacan, and Big Blood show I thought I'd be seeing in a few hours is cancelled! If Amanda exists and is divine and all-powerful, how could she allow such pain in the world?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:24pm Bad Ronald:

Have a cookie and let the healing begin...
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:26pm still b/p:

"..and therefore never send to ask for whom the cookie tolls; it toll-houses for thee."
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:28pm Bad Ronald:

Ha - Indeed!
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:30pm texas scott:

you have a way with words,b/p.
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:40pm texas scott:

is Radiohead one of those groups everyone hates because they're popular or just pretentious?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:41pm Spencer:

My experience is that everyone loves Radiohead.
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:43pm texas scott:

including myself,Spence.Isn't it really about the sound?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:44pm Dear RIAA,:

Try checking my mandatory labels column. See how much interesting music I can play that's not commercially available, or comes from shoestring independent labels? I'm talking to you, Bertelsmann. Are we communicating?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:46pm texas scott:

Amanda's timing is impeccable! I hope the RIAA finds her.
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:46pm Bad Ronald:

"Plastered" - Sheer Bloody Poetry!!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:53pm Marshall Stacks:

Water Song - nice, Irwin.
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:55pm Laura L:

It is a nice song. Thanks, Irwin!
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:56pm ginger tim:

It's nice but it do go on a bit, don' it?!
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:58pm Rob:

Who is this amanda and where has she been all my life?
  Wed. 6/17/09 5:58pm ginger tim:

Hey, remember Monkeypiece Theatre? I'm thinking: Amanda-piece Theatre.
