we just need somebody and we'll all be here
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

I either blame you for everything that happens to me, or I blame you for everything that DOESN'T happen to me. Take your pick.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:07pm Ike:

I admit it. I like Silversun Pickups.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:08pm Dead Coporate Eyes:

seize him!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:08pm Calvin:

I love the culture of victimhood.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:08pm anybody:

I can do somebody's job! I can take ANY ones place! Why does no one think of me??!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:09pm Dead Coporate Eyes:

look at the number jump from 7% to 13%--holy moly!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:09pm Irwin:

Ike likes. Yikes!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:09pm jaycjay:

I see no tumbleweeds blowing by, just those black plastic bodega bags.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

I'll commit some civil disobedience with you Ike: I am also digging the Silversun Pickups!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:10pm das:

Irwin scared everyone away with his harassing emails
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:10pm Smashing Pumpkins:

No?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:10pm Hobbes:

@Calvin: And you people say you were created in God's image? God must have some sense of humour...
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:11pm Nirvana:

Yes?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful Karen Carpenter impression. But this isn't that other woman Irwin's played, you know the one with a regular name but a dead ringer for Karen Carpenter's voice: who's that singer?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:12pm glenn:

florence foster jennings?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:14pm glenn:

sorry. jenkins.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Kera O'Bryon, according to a Dec 2009 playlist.
@glenn: Is Florence another singer with a KC like voice?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:15pm credits:

  Wed. 10/5/11 3:15pm Brass Knuckles:

Have any Pat Boone doing G.G. Allin covers?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:15pm glenn:

ummmmmm. yeah, that's it.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:17pm jaycjay:

"Karen Carpenter" is Cari Golden, according to the FUnny Music Project:
http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1297
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:18pm Brass Knuckles:

Or Dolly Parton pretending to be Bob Dylan covering Lil Wayne.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks JCJ.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:21pm M. Night Shalamalama:

What you didn't realize was you are already dead.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Calm down Irwin. Hyperventilating will only accelerate the effects of new carpet smell. You also could get drymouth from loose fibers in the air.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:24pm Home Depot:

Hey, who needs marijuana? When you get new carpet, it's just about the same effect!!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:24pm Larusso Franzese:

He's just constipated, always.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:25pm Gelly:

I just smoke the carpet
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:26pm M. Night Shalamalama:

OMG. Yes. It wasn't the carpet...it was THE PLANT
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:28pm notify the mice:

"In the early 1990s the Anderson Lab in Massachusetts, run by Rosalind Anderson, PhD, toxicologist, did extensive testing of carpet samples....'One carpet sample caused severe convulsions after the second hour of exposure, and overall, 17 of the 50 mice exposed to the carpet samples died.'"
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:29pm glenn:

oh yeah, brian protheroe. i forgot about him. i might even own that rekkid.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:30pm Brass Knuckles:

No one, not even mice should be smoking carpet samples.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:32pm mouse:

speak for yourself brass
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:33pm dEDMAU5:

So its the carpet then..do not eat...now you tell me...sheeesh
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:33pm Libertarian Party HQ:

yeah, man, if people and mice want to smoke carpet samples, I say let em!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:35pm John Kay:

Come along with me little mouse, on a magic carpet ride.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:36pm R Burns:

The best laid rugs of mice and men
Go often askew,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:37pm glenn:

aft gang agley.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:38pm Rastafurry:

You gon' share dat shag spliff, mousey brudda mon?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:40pm AnAnonymousParty:

OK, that's kinda snappy.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:44pm Bitter Old Womyn:

This song is about my bra.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

This is a more mainstream arrangement for Nina Simone. Still pretty nice, like Nina's "At Last".
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

It's been a pretty good summer on Irwin's show, nice walk back through the schedule.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

As a geographer, I always recommend: to GO FOR THE MAP!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:02pm mouse:

jason's band, right?
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:02pm G:

I'm waiting to get my girlfriend's Mac fixed. Funfun. Tekstore, 23rd and 6th.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:03pm Brass Knuckles:

Hand that masturbates. Niiiice.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:05pm das:

I'm gonna name my kid Stubby
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:06pm Mark Russell:

*yawn*
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:06pm G:

The Brooklyn Libertarian party and FMU both had booths at the Atlantic Antic. Coicidence? You be the judge.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:06pm maximum goose:

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha HAHA HA HA!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:07pm still b/p:

Peter PALMer.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: So, a lot of people like their radio freeform and their carpet smoked and inhaled.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of drugs, how's that Moon Hooch? Does it make you feel gravity less?
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:16pm Ray L:

These Calypso guys are such cat lovers. I think that's sweet.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:19pm das:

After listening to these lyrics I'm beginning to wonder if he's really singing about cats at all.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:19pm slab:

does Irwin know that pussy means something else besides a cat?
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:20pm Steve M:

That cat was the fuck I ever had, too.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:24pm Steve M:

"BEST!" Man, I'm getting old.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:26pm Kimmy:

Mommy, the creepy man on the radio is scaring me.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:26pm slab:

lame driver behind me just before i got home minutes ago. he was tailgating inches behind me going down a hill. my turn was coming up and usually at this turn i pull over more to the left so people can go around. but not for this guy. i pulled over more to the right and waited for the oncoming traffic before I could turn. he had to wait awhile trapped behind me. he threw up his hands in frustration.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:28pm Wild neil:

Hi Irwin! You Rock! This sounds vaguely like a clone of early REM....
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:40pm Mat:

that was me, Slab.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:42pm slab:

oh, hello, mat. see you at the record fair
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sometimes I'm the impatient driver, sometimes I'm the guy taking it real easy. Yin/yang, right.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:43pm Mat:

hi. just do be that guy who is thumbing through records with no rhyme or reason. have an idea what you're looking for!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Irwin's got some good numbers today. BONUS TIME.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:45pm Mat:

Irwin this is a good background...to my frustration in life
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:46pm Lame Driver:

So I'm on my way to Pep Boys to get my brakes fixed and some slab is riding his brakes all down the hill while I'm standing on mine trying not to rear-end him, then he pulls waaaaaay to the right to make a left turn and now I can't get to the shop before they close. So frustrating!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: I find, driving around the DC area (we're #1! We're #1! In traffic.) that we often "become our enemies"--the longer you drive amidst terrible drivers on the highways here, your patience and alertness wear down, and then you start driving poorly as well.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:48pm Rosie:

I am all about this.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:48pm Laura L:

That's right, Bonus Time for Irwin. You may not have a kitty to stroke, but surely you got a credit card that likes being swiped--give it a virtual swipe up there at the pledge widget, why don't cha.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:48pm Mat:

thats it! i'm #77 all of you!!!!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I am glad I live in a waning mid-sized city with vibrant cultural/music/arts scenes and less people than you.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, that didn't make so much sense. Less people than your city has.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Really the roads around here have been saturated and undrivable 30 years now--whenever they build another lane or open a public transport option, all it does is allow for growth in spite of the unmovable traffic. And yes, I understood what you meant.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

But I've driven in small cities too--it all depends on how they drive. Maryland drivers have a reputation in Virginia for being poor drivers. Some said it was just the less-familiar territory; but when I was in MD, I saw that they don't even drive good on their home turf!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

The Dan! "I Got The News" from my fav album of their, Aja. Listen for Michael McDonald's backing vocals.
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Is there an Ajan Studies course around here that needs an instructor?
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:00pm Steve Gadd:

...and my coke fueled fills.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:00pm Alan from Boston:

I just saw Steely Dan at the Wang Center in Boston. Pretty good!
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:02pm jaycjay:

Seems like McDonald contributed backing vocals for every yacht rock act at some point.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:03pm Matt from Springfield:

@Alan: The WANG Center? Consider the origin of "Steely Dan", that has disturbing implications.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:04pm dale:

i just heard that bert jansch passed away. when my friends were buying kiss i was buying pentangle. i'm bummed.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh no! You're right, dale!
"Bert's Blues" now becomes "Our Blues for Bert". A brilliant guitarist in English folk. He will be missed.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:06pm Car Commercial:

This sounds familiar.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, I just KNOW this is going to be good...
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:11pm Irwin:

Either it will be good -- or it will be HORRIBLE and LONG.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:11pm AnAnonymousParty:

Now, THAT's snappy!
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:12pm mouse:

somebody roll up some carpet samples...
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: Isn't that the same thing as good?

And btw I continue to be impressed the quality-or-lack-thereof of found recordings.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:14pm Brass Knuckles:

Teenage volleyballers = tight shorts. This song is brilliant.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

The beauty is that Mr. Wright is SERIOUS about this. Anyone who doesn't destroy something like this is wonderfully delusional about their own talent.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:15pm JNW - TV -SLYT ReMix:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfav2aC93ps
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:15pm Karch Kiraly:

great!
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:16pm Laura L:

HORRIBLE and LONG and a story with a moral. This song has got it all.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:18pm AnAnonymousParty:

It's like a musical gizzard. You can just chew it as long as you want.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:18pm Flo Hyman:

Rolling over in my grave
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:19pm John North Wright:

Horrible, long and with a MOLE
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:20pm AnAnonymousParty:

AND Bob & Ray? Now that's money well spent, IMHO.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:20pm Mat:

that lady is clearly a man.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:21pm Dan Tullis:

Sure, señor Joel.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:21pm still b/p:

Loose Litzingers sink naval humdingers.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:21pm jaycjay:

Ah, Mat, you've blown 8's cover!
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:22pm chris:

At least we all know why Bob and Ray's tapes were "lost."
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:27pm Mot:

damn.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Who will perform "Teenage Volleyballers" at John North Wright's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Eddie Vedder sounds like a good option...
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:28pm Mot:

i changed my name to Mot, since there already is a Matt
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:29pm Brass Knuckles:

zombie Lux Interior for RRHofF
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:29pm Basher:

!!!
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:30pm ted:

I don't think it's funny no more either Nick!
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mot the Hople: That's considerate of you.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:31pm Mot:

no problem, dudes.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:33pm chris:

Irwin, this is worse than the proverbial finger nails on a chalk board, but I guess you know that already.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:36pm slab:

how about the sound of keys being made at the hardware store. not so bad.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:39pm kat330:

Mm, I like this.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

I need a "lift" -- gotta get me some of this Moon Hooch...
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:42pm kat330:

Looking at the music list, sorry I missed some great stuff.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:43pm kat330:

What was between Nick Lowe and Moon Hooch? Something minimalistic?
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:46pm kat330:

Never mind, sorry.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:46pm Lester Moll:

You mean Dan and Joel audio bit with keyboards?
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

I was away myself when Bob & Ray were on. I enjoy them, will def check out that part I missed later.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:48pm Mot:

did someone say Turner and Hootch?
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:49pm Mot:

or was that Tango and Cash?
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:49pm chrisg:

  Wed. 10/5/11 5:58pm Listening Out There:
