Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/16/11 3:03pm serge:

bonjour Irwin !
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:03pm Jack:

Great picture, Irwin!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:04pm PMD:

Oh how I love that little kitty.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:05pm Pedant:

Avoid overuse of the passive voice.

Overuse is to be avoided of the passive voice.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

greetings are given to Irwin and to all the playlist commentators by me.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:08pm Looms:

Aaaah don't tell me that the sun is shining on Jersey City because i'm gonna hate you guys!
ps: bonjour aussi.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:09pm Pompous Pontificant:

Never use the command tense!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Greetings returned to you, Irwin and to all the playlist commentators, excluding myself.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is most gracious. is it odd to greet oneself?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Passive Imperative:
"Passive voice be avoided!"
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:11pm LOL Cat:

  Wed. 2/16/11 3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Matt is from Springfield. He is of the opinion that, should a person refer to oneself in the third person, it would then be acceptable to greet oneself.

Greetings to you, Matt from Springfield.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:14pm Pedant:

Let it never be said that a single opportunity for the passive voice to be used was ever missed by me.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:15pm BSI:

make with that load of crap!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Me swinging in Cookieland! Which makes good sense to me!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think the Beatles originally did this and sang "POWER CHILD" where Sir George later dubbed in "HONEY PIE"
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:18pm Musicologist:

Is Amanda a mod or a rocker?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:18pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

BSI, I'll have sugar and cream instead
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Irwin: like I said after last week's show, the programming last week was so great, I actually didn't mind that there wasn't any Amanda. That COULD have been the week; BUT I noticed you didn't end with Dr. Dobrovolski's "Batcholo Mang" as usual, so legally this week is STILL part of last week's episode!!! The streak continues!!!!!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:20pm Dale from North Dakota:

Amanda is... a mocker.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:21pm Amandologist:

@Musicologist: Both, and neither. She moved the spectrum so far beyond those limited views, that nowadays that's kind of like asking whether you're a hunter-gatherer or farmer.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I've never actually heard the end of Irwin's show, so I assume it's all one long thing, mang.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:21pm Musicologist:

You better footnote the movie when you say that. podner.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

how many hundreds of feet of snow do you have up there, Dale?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:22pm Robert:

Aw, fuckless, mouthless, noseless kitty cat. The lack of features just perfectly captures the carefree, fuckfree-ness.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:23pm Cheri Pi:

  Wed. 2/16/11 3:24pm Dale from North Dakota:

The snow has mostly melted, actually. Contrary to popular belief, North Dakota doesn't get all that much snow -- here it averages about 24" a year.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:24pm BSI:

even without a mouth, fuckers make me sneeze.
carefree sneezy floating fuckers.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:24pm Cute little p---y:

I don't give fucks. I take them.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:24pm Popular belief:

my bad!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Love this "Bay Area Funk" album! Is it still in print?

@DCE: What? You've never checked the Archives to catch the parts you miss? I probably don't follow as many shows as you, so I usually fill myself in when not listening live.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:25pm dude:

cute little p----y, what's your number?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:26pm Cute little p---y:

check the wall in any dive bar bathroom.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:27pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, I've tried once in awhile and had no luck figuring it out. but mostly if I'm not tuned in here I'm tuned into something else. not enough hours in a week.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:28pm BSI:

@DCE: ...and now with Tony Coulter's alt.stream, life got even more awesomely schizophrenic...
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:28pm PMD:

@BSI, lol! but they are so cute!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

damn, where is that?!?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:30pm Robert:

The lyrics of this one just go with kitty cat.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:33pm BSI:

DCE: it's an alt. live stream during Diane on Tuesdays, linked off the main wfmu.org page. ... or for now it's live every two weeks, & re-broadcast every other-other two weeks, if that makes sense. So having those two shows battling for my brain makes for a madhouse inside the skull.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:35pm jazz fan:

I like that the artwork sun is all smiley and happy, just like Miles always was!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:36pm Ike:

Tony C.'s show is great. It's on Doug Schulkind's stream, the "Give the Drummer Stream", linked on the FMU front page (left side). Or listen to Tony C.'s archives at: http://wfmu.org/playlists/TC
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:36pm miles concertgoer:

maybe he was happy. i couldn't tell because he kept his back to us all night.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:36pm fanatic:

I've started hiring substitute listeners so I can keep abreast of the station programming at all times.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:38pm politely:

Irwin, you typed Miles David.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

pay them union scale, don't hire no scabs
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

plus you have to "date" the session to make us feel complete
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

like that
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:41pm miles concertgoer:

Miles David? So he was Jewish, after all.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

he was Sammy David Jr's brother, right?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:45pm NPR:

We are not really that evil. Just mediocre and toooootalllly predictable.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:45pm burps:

Recently I found an old record from an 80's band called Bop Harvey. They had a trumpet player named Miles Davis. It took some effort to figure it out, but it is not the same person. Kinda funny.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:46pm BSI:

@NPR, seriously? I've stared into the eyes of Garrison Keillor (sp?) and I found such nightmares therein...
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:46pm NPR:

O him, yes, I'd agree there. Sheesh!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:48pm still b/p:

Weekend Edition Sunday host Liane Hansen would cook and eat your children at any opportunity.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Amen! The rest of the AM and FM bands are an Evil Empire, and the dial cannot forever remain Half Evil, and Half Free. To arms, then! If only poor radio was wiped off--while we give the battle cry "NO MORE KUSFs!"
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:50pm Ike:

@BSI, agreed. <shallow>Keillor's ugliness = horrifying enough to rip a hole in the fabric of time and space if you look too long.</shallow> Never mind staring into the abyss, this is worse. I'd fear slowly BECOMING Garrison Keillor. He infects!! Soon we're all clones mumbling condescending smarminess about Lake Wobegon! AAIIEEEE!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:50pm ginger tim:

How many WFMU staffers work at WNYC?? (Not to be confused with NPR)
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

"STOP K-U-S-F-ing US UP!"
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:51pm Medevac:

Scary guy. Keillor's the Frankenstein's monster of NPR. Check his neck up close and you can see where they removed the plugs.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:52pm tr|sh:

12? No, 8. 1.2?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:52pm Mike East:

@ginger tim-There's atleast 2 that I know of...I would guess more. Radio's a small world (relatively speaking)
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:52pm Parq:

That was a nifty version of Close To You. There is also a wonderfully creepy minor-key version on the soundtrack to "Mirrormask". I confess, after decades of listening to NPR, I finally had to give up on it in 2008.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:53pm Ike:

@GT, about 3.14159265.
Whenever I hear Rex's voice on WNYC, I can't help but think he's secretly mocking NPR, parodying everybody else over there, doing a funny voice. No?
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:53pm BSI:

@Ike: I was once asked why I seemed to HATE (HATE! HATE! HATE!) his Prairie Home Companion so much........ best answer I can think of is, it's just so fucking harmless..... The man could look like a demon & that would be fine, as long as there was more senseless violence in that show.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:54pm B&B:

I dont like stuff that sucks!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:54pm Matt from Springfield:

I actually support the local WETA because it's now almost entirely Classical, and I believe in some Classical presence on terrestrial radio. But I never listen to the "Talk" NPR--I can't stand them, and their voices make it worse! I agree with Ike about Rex!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:54pm BSI:

it's that floating cat, has me saying 'fuck' too much now.
stupid fuckin' floaty cat.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:54pm Irwin:

Hunch: Ike hates Keane. So does Jan.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:55pm Mike East:

@Ike - did you hear that Benjamin Walker episode that Rex made a cameo on doing corporate underwriting spots for "Too Much Information (TMI)" - I was in stitches.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:56pm Carmichael:

Son of a bitch, I missed Amanda. But I love Keane. And like BSI, I absolutely DESPISE Prairie Home Companion. Not sure why, other than Keillor is the planet's biggest pussy.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@B&B: A good standard for any media!

I had to bring this up:
"Ike: Diane Rehm's voice would ream anybody('s ears). Sounds like a 137-year-old gargling glass shards."
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:57pm Ike:

@ME, no! I missed that episode of TMI somehow! I gotta find it now!

@Irwin, nah, Keane is mostly harmless. Kinda reminds me of Editors or White Lies.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Was it really Rex, or just an imitation as a joke? If it really was Rex, I would respect him for self-parody, kind of proving Ike's theory!
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:58pm tr|sh:

Could 'fuck' become 'fLuck' with an audio insertion and pass the language police?
In an effort to maintain integrity of the piece.. Some cuts are like amputations.
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:58pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ok, but This American Life and Studio 360 are the kittie's tits
  Wed. 2/16/11 3:59pm Mike East:

There's no mistaking that man's voice. He was born for radio.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:00pm tr|sh:

Or 'Rrr'. Fruck.
I'll go answer myself and experiment with, uh, insertions. Audio insertions.
How about those language police?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:00pm Robert:

Like the false pop attractions Communist gov'ts put up to deflect independent youth, Garrison Keillor was the Establishment-acceptable answer to Jean Shepherd.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

<<Calling DC area listeners>>
If it's voices we're talking about, who else CANNOT FUCKING STAND the all-news WTOP? Maybe it's their tones, maybe the endless transitions and bumpers, but listening to WTOP is like rubbing glass shards into my eardrums.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:01pm Mike East:

not 100% sure, but I think its this episode: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/35562
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:02pm Matt from Springfield:

You out there DJ Julie?
Peter Schilling is on!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:02pm Laura Lindgren:

Sehr schönes Lied, dieses Schilling. Danke, Irwin.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:02pm WTOP:

We just haven't heard yet that the interwebs killed our programming niche about 15 years ago.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:02pm dude:

tr l sh: if you need any help with those insertions, let me know, mkay?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:03pm BSI:

Matt: re:WTOP, it's the oldtimer Maryland connection, I think.... that garden-advice guy is the complete and total distillation of all the MD drawl I grew up with. Lots of out-county MD drawlin' on that station.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:04pm BSI:

oh, and I'm thinking of re-christening the studio "the glass-enclosed nerve center" ... (wtop ref.)
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:04pm shallow minnow:

Has Miles now converted?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:04pm WOR:

re WTOP -- You mean someone else is doing outdated downmarket schlock programming?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@tr|sh: At my university we had a one-hour weekly "humor" show I was involved in--it was once broadcast over the surrounding community's cable system, but by then was only on the campus closed-circuit cable movie channel. Yet we were STILL required to stick to FCC language!

At the end of my freshman year, they agreed to lift that requirement, but we were prepared to say "skeet" in place of "shit" if they didn't. After all, "skeet" is really a lot worse that shit, but it's allowed!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:06pm Ike:

@Matt@3:54 -- wait, you don't hear Rex on WAMU, do you? I'm not talking about Rex on FMU, I mean he's ON THE NYC NPR STATION ALL THE TIME (not national NPR, just here I think), doing liners, in a mock-serious-sounding NPR announcer voice! And he's making fun of them and THEY CAN'T TELL! They think he's serious!!!! (Uh oh, I've blown his cover.) @WTOP: I find your constant news updates peculiarly soothing. Somehow nicer-sounding than WINS.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:07pm tr|sh:

Maybe clipping out the 'ck' ? I recently heard the 'ithead' muted from 'shithead'. It was marginally better than plastic alternatives.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:08pm ginger tim:

Why do you think Rex is "making fun of" rather than "making fun with"?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:09pm "Fine line":

plus the fineline of guitarwork plagiarism.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: I've heard Rex before on WNYC streams (or maybe MP3s) before. But I don't listen to WAMU--or unfortunately, TMI. Is Rex more of an FMU or WNYC personality?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:12pm Robert:

Radio people have had all sorts of games going on since forever. The fad seems to have mostly passed, but there used to be a "thing" started by I don't know who (maybe Joe Templeton) for the ABC news announcers to say "I'm [Name]" at the top of the news each hour as fast and sneaky as they could.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:13pm tr|sh:

@Matt f S
The radio station I worked at had its language police logic up-ended. Contextualizing was the requirement. If it weren't contextualized, we req'd warnings.
I was censored over old steve martin comedy one time - his sexualization of senior citizens. The horrors!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

radio people is weird folk
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:13pm BSI:

not as weird as cats.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

(hands Irwin a martini) Whew, tough job editing that!

But, if you started bleeping harmless words, could you play the "John Denver Radio Edit"? I think that would be appropriate!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:14pm Robert:

I think it starts with hams and their Q codes.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:14pm ABC news announcers:

Stalker avoidance system.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:17pm Ike:

@Matt@4:11, ummm, FMU weekend personality, WNYC liner announcement-maker. @GT, good point. PLS NOTE, my interpretation of those WNYC liners may totally delusional.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:17pm Robert:

As in, "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" Actually I think it might've started with their making fun of a hammy way one of them might've drawn it out.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:18pm Inside baseball:

Good save, Ike. /sarcasm
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Whew! Any discussion of radio on the AccuPlaylist quickly turns into a hot topic, it seems!
@Ike: Thanks--I just noticed Rex is 1-3 Saturday.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:21pm Hot Topic:

Your discussion about radio is now property of this retail chain. You can purchase it back for $39.99, or the commemorative box set for $119.99.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

in garishly hip colors and fabrics
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:24pm Surly Chubette:

What's so goddam funny about Hot fucking Topic?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:26pm Mike East:

Fool's Paradise is one of my personal FMU favorites.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:27pm Mike East:

Though I would say the same about a lot of shows...
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:27pm But:

why doesn't Rex drown doing his show from underwater like that for two hours at a time?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:28pm R I S K Y !:

  Wed. 2/16/11 4:29pm Robert:

Never mind that, how does Rex's stasis field not go past 1960?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:29pm Lizardner Dave:

The thing is, we all already contribute to NPR if we pay taxes in this here USA. So fuck them and donate all your radio-supporting money to WFMU.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:31pm BSI:

@Lizardner: yeh! I'll remember to grimace at their HQ next time I walk by.
Speaking of which, they're moving to a great big spangly new building sometime soon, which can't be a cheap manover, eh?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooooo! Wooooooosssshieeeee!"
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:33pm Republican Congress:

Not for long, Liz. D.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:35pm Parq:

Oh thank God, I had the flash player muted while that new kid was in my office. People think I'm weird enough around here without a new hire hearing Wooshie.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:37pm New Kid:

I just got out of this weird guy's office...I felt he was hiding something from me...
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:37pm Carmichael:

Parq, my boss walked into my office once when Amanda was cranking out of my speakers. He just stared at my computer like a dog hearing an odd sound.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

likes this
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:41pm Parq:

New Kid, isn't Wooshie the *best*?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:41pm Hulk Hogan:

Did you just say tag team, brutherrrrrrr????
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:41pm Mike East:

I got my pre marathon mailing...but it brought to mind something that I forgot about. I never got my Best Show premium from last year. Anyone know what the deal is?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Evidently the Best Show premium is a DVD SO great that they're still putting it together, and will probably send out the '11 one before the '10.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! Amanda prevails again!
@Irwin: Do you know who will be tag-teaming with you, or what other shows you will be on?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:43pm Lizardner Dave:

Also, I'm guessing this year's Ken and SSD premiums are "you will actually get last year's premiums" since there are none listed. (Note that this is not whining, the great radio is enough but the premiums are so much fun).
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:43pm Amanda Premiums:

Those listeners are pussies, worhippp meeee!!!!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:44pm Das:

I'd like a Thomas compilation.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:46pm Irwin:

Did someone say "Thomas"?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:48pm Das:

This is the best day ever!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Dave: I agree--I support FMU because it is so wonderful, but the premiums are so unique and fun, I even like trying to choose between so many great ones!

@Mike: Did you order the BS premium last March? Ha! I didn't order mine until the Lift-Off pledge, and you're STILL waiting! Hey, so am I!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Das: Yes! You can summon Thomas!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:49pm BSI:

@Irwin: How many "tracks" of "Thomas Sings" are there?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:49pm burps:

dig the Thomas
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Bill Murray's Groundskeeper from Caddyshack = Carl Spackler.
That's who Thomas reminds me of--still, it could be a "professional" name.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:53pm Mike East:

Yeah, last March. I don't catch it every week anymore, but I got really into that show a few years ago. Pretty cool that Scharpling was on WTF this week. Felt like a score for the underdogs.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:53pm Elvis:

Now there's a dude with authentic soul. Me and the Colonel was just heels.
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Any references on the tape to "varmits" would be a dead giveaway.
Is that reverb from the recording, or added just now?
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:56pm Das:

@ Matt = I picture a punch drunk George Foreman
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Check out last night's Archive from right before the 2 hour mark--Tom does a FANTASTIC parody of typical podcasts!
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:56pm Elvis:

Don't be cruel, to an ear that's true
  Wed. 2/16/11 4:58pm Mike East:

Ha! I actually caught only that bit! I had just finished work and flipped on the radio for about ten minutes before I had to catch the bus. "so, we're podcastin' here"
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:05pm Vicki:

  Wed. 2/16/11 5:06pm Angry Birds:

  Wed. 2/16/11 5:07pm aaron in chicago:

I coulda written this!
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

LOL--Who did this mash up! Too funny!
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:08pm BSI:

oh hell, this is a riot.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:10pm burps:

L7 rox
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:11pm Robert:

I thought this should've been the mood music on "Lost" back whe I thought the plot would make sense -- that the characters were pretending to be dead.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:18pm 7SD:

It's actually a dead show. Unusual, huh?
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:19pm Carmichael:

Oh Man .... what was Denise LaSalle's one big top 40 hit back in the 70s?? It's bugging me.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:21pm Denise L.:

"Trapped By A Thing Called Love"
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:22pm wiki:

her first major success came in 1971 when her self-penned song, "Trapped By A Thing Called Love", released on Westbound Records, made #1 on the national R&B chart and #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:28pm BSI:

@7SD: well as dead shows go, keep in mind we are a fast-zombie-supporting crowd.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Echo & The Bunnymen! A friend and I are going to see them in May.

If I may promote them:
May 11 9:30 Club, Washington
May 12 Trocadero Theatre, Philly
May 13+14 Irving Plaza, NYC
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:36pm roadie:

aha, the ever-popular "I-95 tour"
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:37pm ?:

Since they started in like 1978 shouldn't they be Rabbitmen by now?
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:38pm Carmichael:

That's it. Thanks!
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:38pm BSI:

Echo and the Mature Hares does have a nice ring to it.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:41pm burps:

must be the year of the rabbit
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:42pm Listening Out There:

......Irwin gets the most interesting phone calls.....
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:42pm Artist:

ID? Hmm, who am I, anyway? I'm an artist. Existential questions are for philosophers.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! Another Joni song! Keep up this streak Irwin!
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:48pm Jeezy Creezy:

Can you please play some Jim Sullivan
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:49pm fleep:

He really put some soul into this one, the original was a little cheerful for the lyrics
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:51pm aaron in chicago:

  Wed. 2/16/11 5:52pm Parq:

The Brit romcom "Love, Actually" is largely, well, a Brit romcom, but it has this one great scene with a new, more thoughtful, contralto version of "Both Sides" that Mitchell apparently cut recently.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:53pm ted:

God this is a beautiful song by Judee Sill
THanks for playing it!!
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@fleep: The original release by Judy? Or the "original" Joni release on the Clouds album? Judy Collins was a baroque pop single, but I thought Joni's solo guitar version was pretty soulful, very Joni. But I too, loved Dave's cover--very soulful and stark.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:53pm nestor:

  Wed. 2/16/11 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Judee Sill IS beautiful! This is the first I heard of her, and was saddened to learn she died over 30 years ago.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:55pm Alex:

Always a pleasure to hear Judee Sill. Her solo version of this on Old Grey Whistle Test is amazing.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:58pm Laura L:

Yay, Sport Murphy. Play something by Sport next week, why don't cha.
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:59pm Old Codger:

I'm dusting up my Marathon Megaphone, to tell you to "Give Me Money! Money! Money! Money! Money!"
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:59pm Robert:

Wny do they call it "salty" language? Is it just because that's how sailors talk? Couldn't it be "peppery"?
  Wed. 2/16/11 5:59pm PMD:

YOU edited it???
Oh, now I know why.
  Wed. 2/16/11 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: Ha ha!
Have a good night everyone!
