  Wed. 5/18/11 3:00pm Listener:

The show is over already?????????????????
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Dan and Joel?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, there's the title now.

False Praise the Lord!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:02pm Listener:

Is the show pic today Dan, or Joel?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:02pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

who's the garden gnome?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:02pm Handsome Harry:

I wish Dan Tullis would sing along to this tune.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:03pm garden gnome:

  Wed. 5/18/11 3:03pm Robert:

So which came first, this piece, or the theme for "The Man From UNCLE"? Maybe the latter parodied/ripped it.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:04pm garden gnome:

@Robert: One word: Zeitgeist.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:04pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

click the pic for some weird clown stuff
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: I'm afraid to...what kind of clownage?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:06pm John Wayne Gacy:

Whaddya mean, word? Jerk.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:06pm John Wayne Gacy:

  Wed. 5/18/11 3:06pm Robert:

Zeitgeist played it 1st?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

everyone fears a clown
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:08pm Robert:

You sure Weltanschung didn't play it before them?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

I mean, is it SFW?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:09pm garden gnome:

or even Weltanschauung
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yes, clearly
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's from the 20th c, so clearly, yes
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:15pm Minnesota Jeff:

Nice readings/speech at the White House, Irwin/Kenny!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:16pm garden gnome:

Tx for the false praise, MJ.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:17pm Hi Tech!:

Irwin's show prep any more = the utoobs
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

The Fall have determined Paul Simon's theory is flawed--they have selected the best 15 ways to leave your lover, and discarded the other 35 (most of which didn't even make Paul's song).
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

"go Irwin, and leave the multi-tasking to him!"
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Lane! It's a travesty only FMU is playing him--I love almost all of his stuff. Does he ever perform live?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

with Mingus's known personality defects it's a wonder he could collaborate with anybody. Not saying i don't love his music!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, what's this Lyman '59?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:29pm Laura L:

You are psychic--I was just going to say I hope you can play some Alasdair MacLean Amor de Dias today--sorry I will miss their show Sunday night at Knitting Factory in Bklyn.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:31pm Wikipedia:

  Wed. 5/18/11 3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Surprised "Harlem River Blues" is recent, and the singer is not much older than myself. I thought that was 70s folk rock or something.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

boy, I missed the last three tunes explaining how to attach a pdf to an email to someone...that I've explained the same thing to at least 50 TIMES!!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the refusal to learn is the saddest quality in an aging former beauty
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:35pm DCE's Mom:

I can remember having to tell you to go to bed 10 times a night, so be a llittle nicer. You're not to big for me to put you over my knee.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

The Power Child makes her triumphant return, smashing through the show like the Kool Aid Man!!! OHHHHH YEAHHHH!!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:36pm Das:

My life can finally continue as planned.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:36pm Hi Tech!:

Did Ken say ok???? :-P
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:37pm still b/p:

Well, there's rapture, and then there's rapture.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:38pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

PLEASE Irwin some "Thomas rewrites the Beatles" is great with Amanda !!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

aw, gee, mom
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:40pm Das:

I second Tom.
What was she freestyling over? It's driving me crazy.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:41pm DCE's Mom:

That's okay, sweetie. There's milk and cookies. Invite all your nice comment board friends.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:41pm DCE's Mom:

I can show them your baby pictures.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:42pm 5212011:

It won't be getting better
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Das, wasn't that Honey Pie by the Beatles?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:43pm Das:

Your right, no wonder it was driving me crazy
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:43pm George Martin:

WILD Honey Pie
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:45pm glenn:

  Wed. 5/18/11 3:45pm Das:

How much does one of thees volunteer positions pay?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:46pm glenn:

REALLY minimum wage.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:46pm blubber:

Irwin, can you please explain the story of the amanda recordings? When are they from? Where is she now?
Who recorded her?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:47pm Richard from Venezuela:

FC Porto is winning the Europa League. :(
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:50pm John McCabe in L.A.:

this music goes good with the Bobo The Clown Footage
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:50pm Parq:

Do I like this version of Brimful better, or the original album version? Oh, this is gonna take a bit of thinking.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@blubber: Irwin's shows Jul 22/29 2009, "The Amanda Chronicles" Pts 1 & 2. As well as any Irwin show from 2009 to the present for Amanda music. From Athens, Alabama. Still in Athens, Alabama. Her brother Jody.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:51pm Marc in Liverpool:

the UEFA Cup was a better competition.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq: I don't know, right now I'm liking this remix better.

With a character named Asha on "Outsourced" now, I like the Brit pronunciation here, brimful of Ash-er.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:52pm J J:

This song makes me think of sunny days. More sunny music to fool myself.
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:53pm Parq:

  Wed. 5/18/11 3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is funny
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:54pm cosmic charlie:

FYI: Ted Kaczynski items at online auction by US Marshalls, including this lot: http://gsaauctions.gov/gsaauctions/aucitsrh/
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha ha! What the Hell!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:55pm Phonetic Transcription:

Iz dat what I posta do?
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Just Farr a Laugh? Irwin that was great---we need to hear more from that one!
  Wed. 5/18/11 3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

You'd really have to be a Unabomber fan to bid on that stuff--almost everything is 3 figures or higher. A "Handwritten Copy of Manifesto" is currently going for $10,025.

Selfish Unabomber, if only he had sent some manifestos to WFMU!--that would be some great WFMU Auction $$$
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:01pm paul b:

99 cent Big Bufords do not have same "spirituality" as the original Bubble Blower
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:02pm Handsome Harry:

Hot track, comin' through. Make way.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:03pm pierre:

Bonjour Irwin !!!
Bonjour all the listeners extraordinaires
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:04pm Carmichael:

Listening and typing, listening and typing. Work work work .....
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Bonjour Pierre!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:06pm Feds:

If only we thought FMU mattered, we would crush it like a cockroach in a second.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:06pm glenn:

don't talk to me about canada geese. fucking cockroaches.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:08pm Ted Nugent:

Some FMU DJs would make good eatin', I bet!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:09pm barb:

Eat like Ted - Kill it and Grill It! http://www.tednugent.com/Store/Product.aspx?id=SB000007
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:09pm J J:

You don't want to eat them, Ted. Meats too tainted with drugs and preservatives.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

"Memorial Day's coming, the geese are getting flat..."
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:10pm Ted Nugent:

So simple. Crossbow, machete, barbecue, splash o' sauce, napkin, adult beverage of your choice, NUMMIES!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Geese is good summer eatin'!
Just remember not to eat the tire treads, or the plastic soda rings, or the electronic migration tracker for that matter...
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:13pm Das:

Never seen a goose hump a cockroach. Exciting!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:16pm spring rhymes:

"Memorial Day's coming, the geese are getting flat,
Put your hopeful soul in the doomsday humper's hat..."
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:16pm pierre:

man this playlist is crowded.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:16pm Carmichael:

Did everyone drink your fair share of ale yesterday?? I know I did.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha! A computer has finally taken your job, Dan and Joel!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:20pm Computer:

Give you an example? I'm afraid I can't do that, Dan.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: It's a weekday afternoon, everyone's crowding the playlist like the Métro, everyone's ready to go home!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:22pm pierre:

@ Matt : i'd like to hear Irwin speaking like a métro driver (bad microphone announcing stations, and problems on the line)
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:22pm rst-wiley:

"Next stop! Mohawk!"
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:24pm Queneau:

This is the _Exercices de style_ of shows and of playlists, pierre.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:25pm Dan:

HAL, open the policy buy disclaimer.

Open the policy buy disclaimer, HAL.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:26pm pierre:

oh Raymond je t'aime !
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: LOL, the Washington DC "Metro" has the same problem! I wonder why they don't just have an automatic announcement of stations--it's the same stations on the line! Only have the driver (try to) announce if there's something not on the schedule.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:30pm HAL:

I'm afraid I can't do that, Dan.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:31pm Queneau:

I made them put a math problem on to post comments, in honor of Oulipo.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:31pm Adobe:

You think we care about your punkass problems? MONEY, MONEY. MONEY.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:32pm pierre:

i find it amuzing to, but sometimes poetry emerge, like when the driver make joke, or impersonate some kind of cheesy annoucements…
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Irwin: Stealin' 78s like they're not out of style!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:33pm Disconnected commenter:

You're right Irwin, it IS getting warmer outside.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:34pm Das:

That definately sounds like Willie Brown, but it doesn't sound like any version if future blues I've ever heard
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:37pm Das:

That was a question?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

The thing with bluesmen is they do a lot of moaning, do they ever DO anything about their problems?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sometimes they shoot other bluesmen
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:38pm pierre:

this comment board is vitamins thrown with a saxophone !
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:38pm Bluesmen Counselor:

You should re-actualize yourself and see what YOUR inner self is telling you to do. You need to take a deep breath. Count to 10. Then lay down your cruel woman with a .22.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:38pm don:

or inspire millions...
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:38pm Das:

Sometimes they wake up in the morning
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hey, there's a dog riding on an elephant's head
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:39pm pierre:

sometimes they turn into king bees, and they Buzz around your Hive…
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:40pm Monitor:

see, pierre is getting into the dis-spirit of things!!!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:41pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

Where is the link for the tullis bit?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:41pm pierre:

wait Monitor, what ?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:41pm pierre:

who said i wasn't ?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

lift up the garden gnome and you'll find it
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:43pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

this is good shit.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:43pm Queneau:

pierre is most assuredly helping to raise the level of discourse here!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:43pm rst-wiley:

Han is a lovely drummer, hey?

Glad I tuned in, Irwin, if only to hear this mix of players. Thanks.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:44pm pierre:

i'm still a rookie, but getting there…
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, who said he wasn't?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:45pm Das:

Monitor is a notorious anti-pierreite
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:45pm pierre:

thanks DCE, thanks Queneau
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:46pm AC/DC:

Who said who?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:46pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

LOL this is great
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:47pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

in addition to the regular circus-y type stuff there is a woman washing socks in a bucket.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:47pm pierre:

really ?! What did i do/say to deserve a adjective ?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:47pm Listening Out There:

Who said what?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

everyone deserves an adjective, pierre.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is AMERICA. We come with ADJECTIVES here!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Oh, easy for YOU to say, Adjective Corporate Eyes!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

now, is "Springfield" an adjective modifying "Matt", I wonder...
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm sorry DCE, it's just hard being a preposition. You never seem complete, always claused away. And you never translate into other languages smoothly! I would be "von" from, in German, but "de" of, in French!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:50pm G:

This Stevie W track takes me back to London 1973-74. Completely subjective association, of course.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:51pm Matt from Springfield:

I could submit an application to the Adjective Club under "Springfielder Matt"...I could even be registered in time for their "Fabulous" 4th of July barbecue!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:51pm Das:

I don't approve of adjectivifying our fellow listeners.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:51pm pierre:

true Matt, true…

and this is EXACTLY what i love about america DCE.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:51pm Brett:

hey anyone know where I could find that commercial piece about schools that played before this track on the web?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:51pm frenchee:

If you say "Springfield-based Matt," then yes, it's a compound adj...
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

arghh, more bad weather ahead!!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Springfield Matt it is, at least in adjective-based social settings!

@pierre: Ever hear of one of your earliest adjectives, "Lucky Pierre"?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:53pm pierre:

Matt de Springfield
& Les Yeux Mort de la Corporation.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:54pm Les Yeux Mort de la Corporation:

  Wed. 5/18/11 4:55pm troublemaker:

Leave the phrase "dirty pierre" out of this, kk?
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:55pm Les Yeux Mort de la Corporation:

now there's a clown with a sign announcing "MEAT PIE". This vimeo has such potential!
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:55pm pierre:

that's my favourite one Matt ! and that's the name of adventures i had in "the adventures of lucky Pierre" back when i chased naked girl around the wood of versaille
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:56pm Les Yeux Mort de la Corporation:

I'd like to get to know this "naked girl" person
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, lucky Pierre!

Emmylou's new album again, I love her. I should check this out.
  Wed. 5/18/11 4:58pm pierre:

somewhere here Les Yeux Mort de la Corporation, http://rstvideo.com/trailer/the-adventures-of-lucky-pierre/
  Wed. 5/18/11 5:02pm pédant:

Yeux Morts, non?
  Wed. 5/18/11 5:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Enjoy the UCB show, Irwin!

We'll interrogate you to find out the "Secret guest" next week!
  Wed. 5/18/11 5:04pm Parq:

Bye, Irwin! Have fun!
  Wed. 5/18/11 5:31pm Robert:

Tim, Jim, or whatever your name is -- the Daddy's Hideaway DJ -- your music selection synched amazingly well with the Bobo the Clown footage. Entrainment, I guess.
  Wed. 5/18/11 5:37pm Robert:

Sorry I forgot your name, Tim, although I have heard your programs before. I never got the theme to "Daddy's Hideaway", though, which if I understood you correctly is that it's inherited records.
