Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/24/09 3:01pm Cecile:

Irwin, are you and Maria going to sing together on transitions now?
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

where's Lee??
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:04pm dc pat:

Carm, you watching? 1-0, US!
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:04pm Lizardner Dave:

Lester Moran is Amanda's grandpappy. That's probably not true, but I like to start rumors.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:06pm Ike:

Marshall, if you're still here, let me know how the testing of the Burmese tea leaves goes. And, wow, there are Burmese neighborhoods in Chiang Mai? I missed those. Anything interesting there?
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:07pm Cecile:

what is in a Burmese tea leaf salad? Besides the obvious
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:08pm Amanda:

{screeching pitchy scales and arpeggios, backstage}
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:09pm Jim:

I always chuckle when Roadhog refers to Chet Atkins as "Check."
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In 1977, someone brought a tape of this Burford to music class in high school. I haven't heard this since then. Thanks for the memories.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:10pm road manager:

(looking at clipboard) and double check, boy.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:14pm Ike:


I'm not sure how long the tea leaves are pickled, but they have a good kick to them. Nice and caffeinated.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:16pm Marshall Stacks:

Ike, will let you know about the testing.

The most interesting thing in the Burmese quarter of C.M. was a fairly ornate temple. Mostly residential; just people going about their business.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:16pm Cecile:

wow, that sounds very interesting!
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:20pm Parq:

Bard and Amanda raising their voices together. Mmmm, yeah.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:38pm Ike:

Thanks Marshall. I ate some great, great food in C.M. but I also got a bit of food poisoning, possibly from sausage. Also, that city really needs some public transportation, but maybe I just have an irrational dislike of cabs.

Irwin, I assume Frank Gossner must be Franc O.?
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

here it comes...
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:43pm Cecile:

this is SO demented
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:49pm AnAnonymousParty:

Amanda is kind of like the summer afternoon thunderstorms we get here in the midwest every other day: Comes outta nowhere, lots of noise and bluster, kinda scary yet kinda refreshing in that almost but didn't get your roof torn off sort of way and after it's all over you have to clean up your yard and get your patio umbrella out of the neighbor's pool.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:50pm Ganno:

Haven't heard this Traffic in a l o n g while, so it's pleasant, eh?
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I've always got room for this kind of Traffic
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:52pm John:

I love the "Album" listing for Amanda--Rarities! As opposed to her mainstream, readily available stuff!
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:52pm bikewobble:

uh oh did i hear an F bomb
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:53pm Cecile:

@John, yeah the stuff you find at Target.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sometimes I forget this station is NOT internet-only!
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:54pm John:

Ha! I know Wal-Mart refuses to carry ANY Amanda.
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:55pm bikewobble:

irwin, you caught the second one but missed "fuckloads." i'm going to taddle on you to the feds!
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:55pm Cecile:

wow. Lily is pretty spot on with her snarking there
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

is fuckloads a bad word now?
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:57pm Ike:

That one didn't count. It was garbled... and in British. (Sexy but not always intelligible!)
  Wed. 6/24/09 3:58pm John:

Relax, Irwin. I think she said "truckloads", but her accent has everyone a little confused.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:03pm Cecile:

But are they good, Irwin?
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:04pm doug from dc:

Forkloads of monkey. It's the British accent that threw ya. She's actually singing about Burmese food.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:04pm PMD:

Ah, Amanda...
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:04pm Irwin:

I thought she said "fat clumps" of diamonds. But that Brit twang does render certain phrases unintelligible.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:05pm Andrew:

I really really want to get the Amanda albums. How do I do it??
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:07pm Jess:

Best Amanda ever!
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:07pm Dave B:

  Wed. 6/24/09 4:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

"Mind if we Make Love to You"? what an album title.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:12pm Andrew:

White Town?!?! My pleasure centers are firing like bonkers over here. God blaze you, sir----
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:14pm Cecile:

another good snarky song I never heard before
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:16pm popo:

whitetown make me feel like i am gay in the rain in paris
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:19pm Cecile:

I didn't listen to much pop music in the 90s. I am happy that Irwin is filling in the gaps in my knowledge.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:21pm John:

Caetano. Oh yeah. This is beautiful. It makes ME feel gay in the rain in Paris.
I have no idea what that means.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:22pm John:

Thank you! Sometimes a little Amanda goes a long way.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:22pm jw:

Went to Italy in the mid-90s and that White Town song was playing on every bus radio, hotel lounge and disco floor.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:25pm Lizardner Dave:

For you Jandek fans out there, I just got these Irish tour dates on Facebook (yeah, I'm registered as a fan of Jandek).

  Wed. 6/24/09 4:26pm Cecile:

Irwin, the A** Ponies are a very good band.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:26pm Andrew:

A favorite quote from the dude from White Town: "I formed White Town in 1989 after seeing a brill Pixies gig in late ‘88. My reasoning was that Black Francis was a porker and could get away with playing noisy pop music so maybe I could as well?"
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:28pm Cecile:

Irwin, have you seen UP?
There's a great squirrel joke in there.

Cats eat squirrels.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

last weekend I was watching about 8 squirrels running around my yard, and I was thinking "if these were rats I'd be freaking out right now".
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:29pm John McCabe in LA:

dude the street of los angeles are full of Squirrels road kill it's sick
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:29pm Jennique:

Superchunk is not something I want to listen to either.

Squirrels are human mutations of what happens when you sniff too much crank and get pregnant.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:29pm dragonflyshards:

squirrels were invented before television...(and i know people who eat them.)...(and,i hope you've listened to the ass ponies by now.)
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:30pm Cecile:

Squirrels poop out seeds so some plants can go.

Superchunk is a pretty good band too.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:30pm Cecile:

grow, I mean
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:31pm Jack:

The squirrels eat the birdseed I put out for the birds. Their only natural enemy around here (orange co. ny) is the coyote. The other day, a car driving in front of me hit a squirrel, it was still moving, so I swerved to "put it out of it's misery". Did I do the right thing?
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

rest assured, Jack, you have done well. Now go clean your tire treads.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:34pm Capital Gains:

  Wed. 6/24/09 4:34pm Lizardner Dave:

We feed the rats to the cats and the cats to the rats and we get the skins for free.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:34pm jan:

I had a meeting and only returned to the broadcast around 4:00. the show since then has been great. what did I miss?
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:35pm Cecile:

I have a good butcher.
I don't think we are talking about the same thing, though.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:36pm sqirrelghost:

...{thinking}...well,i'm not in misery.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:37pm squirrelghost:

damn,i spelled my name wrong. i dont type much.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:40pm John:

Jan, you missed Amanda, the gym, squirrel talk, Lily, Caetano, White Town, Paris in the rain...
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:41pm squirrelshards:

LIZARDner Dave,who was that?.(i have it on tape somewhere...)husker du?..
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:44pm John:

Irwin, do you have any Squirrel Bait? They were alright. They were on that great Homestead comp in the late 80s, The Wailing Ultimate.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:44pm Squirrel Representative:

i believe you will find this song very informative: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3EAaK4c7JE
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:50pm Lizardner Dave:

It was Husker Du who did the song but the original story was a newspaper hoax: http://www.trivia-library.com/c/associated-press-cat-and-rat-ranch-hoax.htm
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:51pm Squirrel Bates:

my son,Norman,took over my life after i died.
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:52pm Master Bates:

my hands are sticky
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:54pm squirrelflyshards:

(ewe)...Thank you,L Dave
  Wed. 6/24/09 4:57pm Squirrel Haggard:

I'm proud to be a rodent of the moment.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:00pm dragonfryshards:

Is his name Larry?...Irwin-I'm still laughing because you played Amanda.thank you.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:03pm Seamus:

Damn! I missed Amanda both times! I hope there's room for one more Amanda song.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:05pm Peanut Gallery:

Yikes, I tune in to hear Irwin taking the first step, acknowledging that he has an Amanda problem, and then I look back through the comments to see squirrels everywhere. When did this whole shebang go seedy, twitchy, infested?! (and I have an upper window that gives me the drop on those birdtheed-thievin' squirrels -- they pay, oh how they pay). NOISES!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:08pm friedsquirrelshards:

(he's mad.he's mad.you know it.)YAAAAHHHOOOOOOO!!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:09pm gbrust:

The best thing for keeping squirrels out of the bird seed is to mix some cayanne pepper into the seed. It doesn't affect the birds, but the first time you see a squirrel eat spicy birdseed…

Thanks for this great set, Irwin!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:11pm completely fetal:

anyone else having trouble keeping it together at work while listening to this latest amanda track?
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:11pm Take my card:

Been injured or annoyed by squirrels? The firm of Seedy, Twitchy & Infested will fight for YOU!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:22pm flyingsquirrelshards:

'used to work in retail and play strange music and laugh so much at peoples' reaction to it,i'd have to go outside and breathe.'wish i had Amanda then.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:22pm Rocky:

C,mon Bullwinkle, we're outta here.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:26pm AnAnonymousParty:

'Floaty' reminds me of 'The Blue' from David Gilmour's latest, only (even more) girlier.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:26pm ginger tim:

I used to like that band For Squirrels.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:27pm dried squirrel shards:

Rocky,dont worry.we'll get used to the hot and spicy sunflower seeds.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:30pm trisha:

hi where can i get amanda!!? ammmmmazing amanda!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:31pm doug from dc:

I was annoyed by chipmonks. They dug up all of my tulip bulbs. They took a bite from each, figured "this nut's gone bad" and dug up another.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:34pm Laura L:

THANK YOU! My favorite rant!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:35pm Irwin:

That's because it's your professional milieu!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:38pm Laura L:

It will be a nice lead in to you know who!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:44pm Irwin:

Anyone want any more Amanda today? Last call!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:46pm dragonsquirrelshards:

i've seen chipmonks in my garden,but,weird-the only damage i find is 1(out of 5)columbines is bitten down...(and,maybe an orech plant...but i think that's the mice.)'havn't touched my bulbs.(?)..so-in the future,doug from dc,if you must,you could put chunks of small gauge chicken wire,or something else they wouldnt like to walk on around the tulips,on the ground.--andYES,Irwin,before i go,i'd Love some!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:51pm Laura L:

Yeah, where's the Amanda to close the show?
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:52pm It's official...:

You have now entered old fogie-dom.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:53pm Peanut Gallery:

  Wed. 6/24/09 5:55pm Amanda:

I have yet to see Dime Fucking One from SoundExchange. Screw their bitch asses. Peepee on their flooooooooooorrrrrr!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:57pm Punk Floyd:

There are no Amanda rarities, really. Matter of fact, they're all rare.
  Wed. 6/24/09 5:59pm dragonmonkchips:

cheesesschrist this is Amazing!i'm going to go laugh in the rain(while i work).Thankyou,Irwin
  Wed. 6/24/09 6:02pm JT:

  Wed. 6/24/09 6:02pm dragfshdz:
