Listener comments!

  Mon. 5/2/11 12:04pm Mariano:

IRENE!!! So good to have you back!
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:05pm yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Hi Irene ;)
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:07pm Listener Bill:

Was that Jolie Holland singing with Matt Bauer? That was great!
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:15pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Irene.
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:19pm Irene:

Hi everybody! Yes Bill, that was Jolie Holland. Nice new album from Matt.
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:20pm Davideo:

I love this song by Sarah Kirkland Snider, Irene. I first heard it when you played it a few weeks ago. Can't wait to hear the rest of this record. Thanks!
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:30pm SWeeney:

you are wonderful!
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:30pm listener mark:

Hi Irene! This Roger Kellaway is great. I like his "Come to the Meadow."
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:31pm Irene:

I saw a performance of some of the music from Sarah's Penelope. Absolutely sublime! I didn't intend to play something I'd already aired from the album but this one fit nicely. I'll play more, I promise!
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:32pm Irene:

Yes, Come to the Meadow" was used as the theme for NPR's Selected Shorts for many years. a fave of mine too.
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:39pm Sean Gostage:

Hi Irene,
Absolutely tickety-boo to have you back, enjoying the late afternoon sun sat in the back garden with a rather nice glass of Chilean White and a bowl of olives
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:04pm pierre:

Bonjour Irene,

merci pour Julianna Barwick, she will be playing at "Espace B" on the 25 of may, in Paris.
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:05pm ╬▓rian:

Greetings from Madison, Irene. It's a beautiful day on the isthmus.
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:05pm Looms:

Enjoying the good vibes.
Julianna Barwick's track was gorgeous, thanks.
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:17pm mike:

i heart baby dee
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:27pm still b/p:

Was that a remixed or alternative version of Aladdin Sane..? Odd flavor to the ear of memory.
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:28pm Irene:

This was from the disc Ryko put out in 1990. Might've been an alternative mix. I was looking for my LP this morning but it was M.I.A.
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

killer licks from Mr Nelson
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:47pm slab:

just to brace yourself if going out tonite. i bet there will be plenty of excited yahoos out tonite because of the bin laden thing. people in my neighborhood already putting out the flags. i can only imagine that people will naturally have a sudden thirst for a lot of alcohol because of this. and the need to blow off 10 years of steam over this.
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

good thing they didn't announce it on Friday night then....
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:56pm Irene:

Yeah, I think you're right. Traffic on the way in to WFMU was really weird, and I saw cops lining the West Side Highway. Much as I'd like to see Michael I think I won't make this one. However, there is an archive of the show he did with me a few years ago. http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/28936
  Mon. 5/2/11 1:57pm slab:

hopefully half the nation will not be too hung over for work tomorrow and bin laden will have one last laugh from the grave because it causes our gdp to go down.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:01pm glenn:

i just don't see how bin laden's death is going to make a difference. i guarantee al quaeda's already got new leadership up and running.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:07pm slab:

it won't make a difference with al qaeda and terrorism, but the big impact I think is in a healing for most Americans who needed to see this. I don't give a hoot if the guy lived to be 100 and never found. but I know that most americans are thinking differently today and tonite. as crazy as it sounds. bin laden not being dead or caught really bothered many if not most americans. wonder how things will change now. maybe folks won't be so reactive and conservative any more. and obama can show his birth certificate and republicans believe it.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:10pm aa:

News dujour: "Don't forget to be afraid."
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:10pm glenn:

i'm looking at it from a canadian perspective, so i think that's different for sure. obama could tell the republicans that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and 98% of them wouldn't believe him.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:16pm KevinfromBayRidge:

As someone who had the first plane fly 900 feet over my desk in 6WTC, I think that I'll tolerate some "excitement" from "yahoo's". Especially if said yahoo's lost someone personally back then.You're right though about it being all about symbolism. I'm sure the M-F-K-R did very little operationally in the last 9 years.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:17pm Irene:

I agree Glenn. I've been waiting to hear the Republican spin on this one. Obama's been saying from the start that getting Bin Laden was top priority. Sadly, and maybe tellingly, President Bush thought Saddam was a higher priority. I do have to say, as a mostly lifelong New Yorker, part of me felt relieved at the finality of this act and part of me says more will come.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:19pm Curmudgeon:

If you actually believe that Bin Laden has survived all these years only to be "found". killed, and buried at sea? I see it only as a political tactic to ensure Obama's re-election.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:21pm glenn:

i find the buried at sea bit interesting. muslims are supposed to be buried (under ground) within 24 hours, so that's guaranteed to be a slap in the face to his followers.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:21pm KevinfromBayRidge:

We'll have to get the Donald to vet it out!
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:22pm Irene:

There's the spin, starting up already.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:22pm slab:

yes Kevin from BR. I know. definitely some kind of closure here for many people.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:23pm BSI:

something tells me Clay Pigeon will have a field day recording street interview bits...
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:23pm Irene:

You know it!
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:24pm moaamoaarr gqaadafeei:

oh no! donta killa meeee toooo!!!
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:27pm Mariano:

Qadafi with an Italian accent?!?
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:28pm KevinfromBayRidge:

@moaamoaarr gqaadafeei:;

Hey Mo, you shoulda gotten the body. I'm sure would have given a proper Muslim burial.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:30pm Reality Check:

Burial at sea is permitted to Muslims if there are no other options. Saudi Arabia was asked about the body, since OBL is a Saudi citizen by birth. They said we do NOT want his body here! Conclusion: Burial at sea. Unless someone was hoping for a shrine somewhere. Obama knew better than that, though.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:32pm glenn:

i'm sorry, that may be allowed, but i'm positive not many muslims will see it that way.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:33pm Reality Check:

Angry people are always angry. True dat.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:34pm slab:

could maybe stuff bin ladens's body in with the concrete at sea in the BP oil spill debacle place.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:36pm moaamoaarr gqaadafeei:

actualleeya, Libya has a lota of uh italian history. many libyians have tremendous Italian roots and many Italians have a little Lybian in a them a.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:37pm ellliot:

I am sure video and pictures will eventually leak about the events in the compound and on the USS Carl Vinson. Either way I am sure Osama is dead and Obama isn't.

I am just glad this was a flawlessly executed plan under a Democrat led government instead of the Carter era botched helicopters in the sand fiasco that gave us 8 years of Reagan.

BTW - jon Hassel underneath is a beautiful chilling soundtrack to this episode/dialog.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:37pm Peter Gabriel:

The rocks in time
compress your blood to oil,
your flesh to coal,
enrich the soil,
not everybody's goal.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:39pm Mike East:

I thought that was Jon Hassel! I just used him as bed music for my monthly mixtape off a record he did with Brian Eno. Really cool stuff.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:40pm glenn:

i thought obama's big message was that he would be endorsing the socialists in today's canadian election. then we were informed about osama. oh well, a guy can dream.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:40pm Mike East:

I guess I could have looked at the playlist where it is clearly marked...thanks for bringing it to my attention Elliot.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:43pm Reality Check:

If you like Obama's policies better than those of his political opponents, then he have to hope he wins the next election, whose campaign has really already started. That was one major factor in how he decided to handled this incident. Duh.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:46pm listener mark:

Irene ! You read my mind, was just thinking about Nick Drake.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:46pm Sean Gostage:

The Porcupine Tree track was just brill, I would like to suggest a name for your regular listeners and commentators, The Trudelites, sorry if it sounds a bit naf but it just has a nice ring
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:48pm moaamoaarr gqaadafeei:

oh a no ah. i a can hear a hella a copters!! donta shooota!! obama is thata you a? you a meana you a personallya came a to a killa me a? i a am a im a pressed a.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:48pm listener mark:

I prefer wfmu listener, -- listener mark
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:50pm glenn:

that's another thing. why on gd's green earth does an election campaign take two years?
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

they just never stop campaigning. constant bullshit!
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:51pm don:

this is fantastic, irene.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:54pm glenn:

election campaign in canada - 6 weeks. cost of election 300 million$, probably about 15$ for every vote, depending of course on how many people turn out. i think it should be like australia, where you legally have to vote.
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:58pm KevinfromBayRidge:

@moaamoaarr gqaadafeei:

Just remember Mo... There's no sucha thing as a "Sanity Claus"!
  Mon. 5/2/11 2:58pm On Optimist Writes:

Life is simple
  Mon. 5/2/11 3:00pm Reality Check:

Obama wants to have an actual effect on national policies, so he has to work with how things really are, and in that specific context he has to calculate what would get things moving in the direction he wants the country to move. You have to win elections to have an effect -- that is, a shorter-term effect than "theoretically maybe someday."

Complaining about how things are and wishing they were different without actually doing anything is a common pastime, but it doesn't appreciably affect national policy.
  Mon. 5/2/11 3:00pm Andrew:

Used to listen to Chrysalis when this was new. Still like it.
  Mon. 5/2/11 3:00pm moaamoaarr gqaadafeei:

no..falsa alrama.. justa somma guy in a obama hallwenn a mask. my guys a they a know a gooda joke a.
  Mon. 5/2/11 3:01pm BSI:

wow, for a moment there i thought this was a lost Green Pajamas track (due to the vox), rapid googling saves the day...
  Mon. 5/2/11 8:51pm mike tp:
