The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Hi Irene - saw your fine note on the Peter Bergman memorial page. I was hoping you'd open with some FT.

Peter Bergman RIP.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:03pm Van in DC:

Hi Irene, nice tribute :)
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:06pm Bill S:

Marshall Stacks, where is that page? Thanks.

I couldn't pass this up! Firesign Theatre was so important to me when I was first getting into radio as a young-un. I've practically memorized this whole piece!
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:09pm Marshall Stacks:

@Bill S, it's here: http://firesigntheatre.com/peterbergman/index.html
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:11pm BSI:

I still consider the DEAR FRIENDS collection one of the greatest product of human brains on this here earth. .. Well done, ms. Irene.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:11pm glenn:

ooh, is the whole show going to be firesign stuff?
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:14pm kat330:

Late to keyboard but listening from the get-go. I was so lucky to see Firesign live when I was in Providence, RI. They were performing at some RISD auditorium.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:15pm Bill S:

Thanks!

No, just a little off the top here, Glenn.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:16pm kat330:

PB, RIP, and thanks, Irene, for this tribute.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:17pm Andrew Waterloo:

I'm loving this
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:18pm Rob from Maryland:

I'm not familiar with this partcular Firesign album. It's wonderful!
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:19pm Bill S:

My ponytailed dentist used to their routines for an incredulous assistant while I mumbled with mouth full of cotton that I had at that time seen them recently. Hand me the pliers.

In 1996 I had the pleasure of being an engineer on one of the first internet broadcasts ever, with the Firesign Theatre performing live from The Knitting Factory. (Phil Austin wasn't with them that time) They were all really great to work with and good guys. You can listen to that show here:

Ah, this is the one that ends with the extended Joyce quote, isn't it?
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:23pm Greg Baron:

i've been waiting for the electrician or someone like him... but this will do just fine. long live FST

WFMU also has several archives of The Firesign Theatre Radio Hour here: wfmu.org...

remaining open minded, but trying to figure out what i'm missing as far as allure here
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:31pm SteveL:

Making me hungry for a fistfull of grubclusters.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:33pm kat330:

@vk: new ground in radio and taboo-busters in general.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:36pm Brian en Angleterre:

Irene, sad about Peter Bergmann. Still have not figured the difference twixt the two Lennon/Lenins. They were small people with hairy faces.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:37pm Brian en Angleterre:

As someone said about Davy Jones 'Showbiz right down to his toes'.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:39pm glenn:

was that someone anthony newley?
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:39pm Jack:

I think I've had my first ever flashback. I was driving around doing my chores tune in Irene's show and I hear The Firesign Theatre. Thank You Irene! ( Didn't we have them all memorized?)
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:39pm Jack:

groatclusters!
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:43pm Brian en Angleterre:

Think it was an English journalist.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:50pm kat330:

Don't know this one, but it sounds like John of TMBG doing a Rufus Wainwright ditty.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:51pm Brian en Angleterre:

Happy glenn.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:51pm kat330:

[Just About Now, I mean. Always posting as the last note sounds it seems]
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:52pm Bill S:

I'm having afternoon Bewely's in honor of St. Patrick.
  Mon. 3/12/12 12:53pm Brian en Angleterre:

Hey Irene, just about time for crumpets & cakes over here right now with a nice pot of tea.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:05pm Carmichael:

Good morning all. Great set today, Irene!
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:06pm Brian en Angleterre:

Three cheers.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:06pm kat330:

Awww, Groucho! :)
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:06pm joe:

Wow the quality on this Hooray for ... is great. Is this a rerecording?
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:07pm Carmichael:

Loudon Wainwright portrayed a Captain Spaulding on 2 episodes of MASH. He sang the Suicide Song on one show.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:08pm kat330:

@Carm: Way to tie the threads together!
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:11pm Carmichael:

Just noticed the connection this moment (well, THAT moment), given Alan Alda's proclivity to mimic Groucho. Irene performed the actual "tying".
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:13pm seang:

ahhhhh, so romantic, I love you all
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:13pm Bill S:

Where do you go to my lovely.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:15pm Brian en Angleterre:

1968.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:17pm Parq:

And let's not forget the bright line that ran from the Marx Bros to Firesign.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:18pm Deepak:

Loving every second of this show.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:22pm Carmichael:

The Firesign bits where they were just pretending to read the TV guide and making up shows were stunning comedy to me.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:25pm Bill S:

There's a nice live version of "Where Do you go to" on youtube. All this time i had no no idea what he looked like.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:28pm kat330:

Groucho performed Lydia.. on his game show, so maybe recorded from that?
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:29pm Bill S:

PArq: Marx and Lennon.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:29pm Carmichael:

He also performed Lydia on the Dick Cavett show, late in life.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:30pm kat330:

You are correct, sir, and I saw that at the time even.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:35pm Brian en Angleterre:

Bill S his first single was called 'I am a Cathedral' though he really only has one hit. Looks like a small creature under his nose!!
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:42pm Bill S:

That song gives me a lot of ideas of where to in the Mediterranean right after i graduate Sorbonne.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:43pm Parq:

@Bill S, 1:29: Exactly.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:44pm Bill S:

Spoonful, Springfield, Hardin ... my birthday is months away.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:47pm Brian en Angleterre:

Funnily, I saw PS at my first gig in July '68. It was a charity do including The Byrds with Gram Parsons & The Move. Joe Cocker was also on playing 'Little Help....' for the first time.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:48pm Bill S:

I did go to Sorbonne. Really. Well i looked at the nice columns.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:48pm kat330:

Irene is certainly hitting all the right notes with me today.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:49pm Bill S:

Byrds with Gram Parsons! Holy smokes!
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:50pm Bill S:

Kat330. it's for me but you can listen.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:51pm kat330:

:)
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:52pm joe:

Look at me I ask a question and than bail out.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:53pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Irene, it may be a little bittersweet but you're NAILING it today! Great show.
@Carm & kat-Watched that show too...Cavett was such a great repository for lost(but not forgotten) moments and artist from the 60s & earllier. Saw Cavett when he did 7SD last year...Very nice, amazingly humble man.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:55pm kat330:

Listened to that 7SD as well, Kevin, and just last week we dl-ed an Alec Baldwin interview with Cavett. I think it's "Here's the Thing" on NPR. I'll check it out.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:56pm Looms:

Hello Irene and all!
Damn' I've missed some good stuff.
  Mon. 3/12/12 1:56pm kat330:

Here's that link if you're interested: http://www.wnyc.org/shows/heresthething/2012/feb/27/
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:07pm KevinfromBayRidge:

@kat What was really funny was seeing Dick & David Peel smoozing outside the UCB after the show. Talkin'study in contrasts!

  Mon. 3/12/12 2:11pm Carmichael:

Yair!
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:15pm Carmichael:

OK, just read the Karen Dalton bios. No one seems to know too much about her, with only intriguing tidbits about her personal life. Haunting voice.
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:19pm Marmalade kitty:

Great show this afternoon, Irene! Thank you
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:40pm Van in DC:

Love the show today Irene. Sure love this Roy Harper.
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:47pm JRG:

Your show is great today.
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:54pm Bill S:

Off to the mines, Irene. Great show. PB would have appreciated it.
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:55pm 12539:

Arrived late, but thanks for that last great hour, Irene.
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:56pm Carmichael:

You knocked it outta the park, Irene! I have to go focus for Jim Price's show. Thanks!
  Mon. 3/12/12 2:58pm Van in DC:

Many thanks Irene, as always. Pure enjoyment, and made for a bearable workday this afternoon :)
  Mon. 3/12/12 3:01pm kat330:

Lovely, start to finish.
  Mon. 3/12/12 3:01pm kat330:
