Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/6/12 3:02pm G:

Llamentable.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Exactly the same as the previous camels, only...um, more tempermental?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:03pm kat330:

Shear horror.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Scott Walker's such a great singer--I have no clue why the people of Wisconsin are so irked about him...
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:04pm kat330:

Why is FMU spinning so many tracks by the Wisconsin wanker?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:04pm G:

I would have thought Scott Walker was in a better mood than this.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:04pm ?:

I think for THAT Scott Walker, it might be sunny today . . .
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:05pm Keith in VT:

Llama-doodle?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:06pm Irwin:

"Irked"? They reaffirmed their support.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Keith: Lloodles.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:07pm Jennique:

They have to get to llama school! (Sifl and Olly song)

WOOL
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:08pm ?:

play 'the old man's back again'!
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:08pm Michael:

God they look odd.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I see Ken played "Next" this morning--I first heard that from Fabio, that's an amazing one. In fact Fabio's also a big S. Walker fan, you can expect to hear more from him tomorrow I bet.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:09pm Llamas:

Up periscope!
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Irwin is the 3:00 PM Wednesday guy for as long as he chooses to be. The Wednesday Afternoon Hero!
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:09pm kat330:

I like the one llama looking in a different direction, obviously is an "outsider" and hears the beat of a different drummer.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:10pm kat330:

Yes, he launched the show with that Brel gem! Hi, Matt, BTW, long time no type -- well, several days anyway. :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:10pm Irwin:

That wayward llama's name is "Neil Young."
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:11pm Michael:

Llamas!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbwkkXGmFrI
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:11pm kat330:

Of course it is.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

C, S, N & Y (by heads, L to R)
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:12pm Llamas:

Only we harmonize better live than CSNY. Check the Woodstock concert.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:12pm SteveL:

Someone needs to animate the llamas. Soon.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:12pm Jennique:

Neil Young looks like he got a pie to the face.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:12pm kat330:

Kinda looks -- size-wise -- that Young should be Crosby. Hard to tell from the angle.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:13pm kat330:

@Jennique: Heh! Ol' pieface.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:14pm Llamas:

The best shot from that session was us on the zebra crossing at Abbey Road
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:14pm Laura L:

Got any Fahrenheit 451 music for us today? RIP Mr. Bradbury.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:15pm kat330:

Crosby's the only one with perked ears.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:15pm Llamas:

Llamas rule, zebras drool
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:16pm kat330:

Yeah, Laura. Or eerie, atmospheric carnival music.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:18pm Llamas:

Isn't that actually LLaura?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:19pm kat330:

@Michael: Thanks for that divertissement.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:19pm Something Wicked:

http://www.blinkx.com/watch-video/fuck-me-ray-bradbury-rachel-bloom-2010/1ENACDcXpJMke17O2MH1Sw
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@Laura L: It's true...at least the RIPs were slowing down briefly from the past couple months, now they're picking up again.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

"Djaponese"? Crazy! You can't DJ a J unless there's a precedent! Like Django, or Djakarta.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:21pm Scrooge:

RIPs are dead to me
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

RIP off?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:24pm kat330:

Still on the llamas: Nash has interesting markings. Sort of a white soul patch and a white yarmulke (or bird poop) on this head.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Pull a Kenny G, and broadcast yourself while vacuuming.
Sing something at the top of your lungs while doing it too.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:25pm Zzebras:

Two can play this game.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:26pm kat330:

HIS head. Even though it could be HER head. Aw, just leave the typo stet.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: He adopted his hairstyle while in The Hollies, to cover up that spot.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:27pm Jennique:

They're all wearing shaggy bell bottoms. Maybe one of them should be named Lloyd?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:28pm kat330:

Apparently the girl he shared his umbrella with left him unprotected from pigeon poop.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:31pm kat330:

Does anyone use a portable Internet radio (don't mean in your car)? We had a Grace digital audio box, but it seriously under-performed for us, so it's returned and is history. Want to be able to garden and listen to FMU, so if any recs, I'd appreciate them.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:31pm Craigslist:

Xylophonist wanted for 5 minutes of studio overdubs.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:32pm kat330:

Well, this fits as a slightly eerie tune, though not very carnival.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:32pm bloopy:

somebody i used to knoooowwwwwwwwwww
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:32pm Tom L.:

The reason I listen to WFMU is so I DON'T have to listen to this song.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:32pm Mike VL:

You are the finest DJ on this damn station.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:33pm Listening Out There:

Current portable Internet radio for me = iPhone 4s with volume cranked. Sonically challenged, but it works...
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:34pm kat330:

@Tom L: Yeah, a bit surprising to hear this here, but Irwin is his own man.

On the I-radio: We do not have/use Smartphones and have no plans to get into that.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:35pm Ike:

I definitely did not expect that song by an obscure Australian called Gotye to become popular. Are they playing it on adult contemporary stations or something?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:35pm kat330:

@Ike: Yep, all over the airwaves around here. (Louisville)
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:36pm Michael:

I've got a couple of Logitech Squeezeboxes that I believe can take batteries and be portable. Pretty satisfied with it's performance overall.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

The David! This is a great "artyfact".

"The Other David" would make a good psych band name, if you're out there listening, OD! :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:37pm kat330:

Aha, Michael, yes Logitech came up in a search. Reliable? Truly do no use battery power while plugged in? The Grace kept switching to battery power even when on AC. It was crazy.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:38pm kat330:

Good sound, the Squeezeboxes? The Grace was surprisingly decent sound quality.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:41pm Michael:

Dunno - Only use AC with the device. The sound quality was surprisingly ok.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:42pm kat330:

OK, we'll probably go with Logitech since it seems to get decent reviews. Thanks for your input, Michael.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:43pm kat330:

@Matt: I think OD is working overtime on building his pizza boat.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:44pm dale:

i second the squeezebox. awesome sound for a little thing and i like the interface that lets you choose by country, city, genre etc. and pandora is nice on it too. best buy sells them or online of course. mind wants to reboot kinda often, but it hasn't been a problem really.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:45pm kat330:

Thanks, Dale! Confirmation is appreciated.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: So then, how would the Logitech compare as a radio while crossing the Atlantic, on a pizza boat without AC power?
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:48pm Savory C:

Hope Sandoval.. what have you done..
thats 11 time zones..
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:50pm dale:

what was wrong with the grace? best buy had one discounted to fifty bucks and i was gonna grab it for a spare
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:53pm common:

damn straight!
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:53pm Television Personalities:

I know where David Clayton-Thomas lives.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Irwin is taking Archive listening advice from Lizardner Dave! :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:55pm kat330:

Dale, it could WELL have been the one we were sent only. Purchased through Amazon, seller was Electronics Expo and shipper was Prestige <---- HORRIBLE co. that I wish Amazon would drop. So we probably got a returned or refurbished unit to start with. Don't want to risk trying it out again, esp. if AMZ will just use Prestige to ship it. Also got a bum microphone when it was shipped by Prestige. I think they might be running a "used goods" scam. I dunno.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:57pm dale:

look for a company called c. crane. they make wifi radios too. plus all your shortwave and broadcast band antenna needs
http://www.ccrane.com
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:57pm kat330:

Reminds me, Irwin, if correct info about you somewhere -- wiki? -- I'm about 3 weeks older than you, heh! If you don't feel old, well, neither do I.
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:58pm Listening Out There:

......I like likes Ting Tings.........
  Wed. 6/6/12 3:59pm kat330:

Thanks and will do. Except for the power problems, we liked the Grace just fine.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

As a young person, I would like to point out the trouble with our youth--not because the youth are "the future", but because they're the future OLD PEOPLE! They're insufferable now, can you imagine when today's youth become OLD PEOPLE themselves?! Just be glad most of you won't be around to deal with them by that point...
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:01pm kat330:

[oh, and the reason we're rather resigned to purchase through AMZ is because we have a large gift cert. balance there]
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:03pm fatty:

mama smells like pizza=best song ever
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:03pm kat330:

When I said I don't care for the "little girl" voice, that doesn't include *actual* little girls. This is great!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:04pm paula pc:

THANK YOU IRWIN for the M Fields
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:04pm wow:

Hey, I'm (unfortunately) listening from Laramie Wyoming!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:07pm kat330:

@Matt: Is that a quote or paraphrase from someone other than yourself? Of course, it's important to point out that older people were also probably insufferable as youths.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:08pm kat330:

Wyoming unfortunate? Wow, you've got Yellowstone, fercrimminy!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Helen Stone, a new star!
Kind of a dance mix feel, but also Amanda-like stretches in her song! Did that make the premium Irwin?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Hells no, just made it up now, riffing on Irwin's riff on old people!
"Insufferable is forever" :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:13pm kat330:

That's right. I see nothing age-specific about the frequent rudeness and irresponsibility around US.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, thought this was Spike Jones or something! Liking Mr. Butcher here!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

No mentioning Bourbon without sharing it!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

New My Robot Friend!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:20pm Carmichael:

Hi everyone. I see I missed a chunk of Scott Walker, dammit. Archives ....
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Carm!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:22pm kat330:

Mr. BBQ! Hope you're not a smoker, btw.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:22pm Carmichael:

Hey ya, Matt.

I also have a kind of perverse like of the Ting Tings. Not normally my cup of tea, but they're odd enough to like.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:22pm kat330:

And to everyone in NYC, hope you're not Big Gulp drinkers.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:30pm Mike East:

I hope no one here drinks Big Gulps. That shit is bad for you. No human needs that amount of sugar and whatever else is in soda these days.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:31pm Doug P:

Why is that your business, Mike? Are you a big nanny like Mayor Doomberg?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:32pm Carmichael:

Save the drama for your llama.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:33pm wow:

All I can say is that the Big Gulp is alive and well here in Laramie....
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:35pm kat330:

Myself, I was commiserating with the Californians and Big Apple folks who'll be "inconvenienced" if they do so indulge. I certainly don't promote bad habits, but everyone's free to as much self-destruction as they'd like.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:36pm Carmichael:

I have 99 problems, but soda isn't one of them.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:36pm Drollama:

The law refers to the swig/gulp size, not cup size... No big swigging allowed, but like all laws there are all those loopholes, ike if the ON AIR light is on and the beverage is bourbon.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:37pm kat330:

Carm, I was speaking of the proposed $1/pack cig tax Brown's proposing. You ARE in CA, yes?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Does Sexton or Billy do the singing on this album?
Also, I think a certain tune is being ripped off here. Klaus Beyer should sue.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:38pm Irwin:

I'm on it, Matt. Klaus will be furious!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:40pm Carmichael:

@kat: yes, a few blocks from the dome. That measure failed 51-49.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:42pm kat330:

Ah, guess I'm not keeping up w/the news.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:43pm kat330:

This also gets Lullville airplay aplenty (or did).
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Great sunny pop in this pop. It's really brightening my day.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:46pm kat330:

Oh, Matt, did you have any tornado damage nearby? My news sense seems lacking of late, but I thought I heard DC environs had a bad night last Friday late?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

And I'm not keeping up with popular airplay--Semisonic (new one??), Gotye...no clue what if anything is trending on terrestrial radio. Listen to FMU, they'll tell us these songs, and then not overplay them. Keep it fresh.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:46pm temperamental drawbridge:

this semisonic is a bittersweet symphony
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:46pm Ike:

@Doug P.@4:31, I could argue that it's Mike's business (and mine) because he (and I, and you, if you're American) have to pay for some people's health care when they get obese from all those sugary drinks, then default on their mind-bogglingly exorbitant medical bills from our bloated, greedy health care industry. That said, only Emperor Mike can get away with this kind of thing, just like only Nixon can go to China.

Thoughts?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:47pm Mike East:

@Doug P - No, not my business, and I don't really care...except for a basic hope that people get healthier. I'm not in favor of legislation dictating people's health choices, I'm in favor of people making better health choices.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:47pm Matt from Springfield:

They said there were 9 small tornadoes around the area--no widespread damage though.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Closing Time - Podcastin' Time
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Irwin. YES! And Klaus comment name check! TY!
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:49pm kat330:

@td: My sweet lord! You're right, very similar riff. Just tempo and outlook are vastly different.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Hmmm, Leon Russell's Daughters of Albion. Worth an investigation.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:50pm Carmichael:

You mean "He's So Fine"?? :-)
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:50pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Wait, there is a radio show happening?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:52pm kat330:

@Carm: Exactly. There's nothing new under the sunny pop.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Seattle Dave: Shhhhhhh! I wish people would stop mentioning that! Now commenters are going to be distracted, listening to stuff while typing.

@Carm: LOL. Incidentally, Jonathan King is a douche.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:54pm kat330:

Was this a leftover from Ken's show?
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:55pm Laura L:

Achoo
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:56pm Irwin:

I knew you'd love this, LL.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Loving Lindy as well! Almost works as a PSA, followed by an announcement to get you to see your doctor.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:56pm Matt from SF:

Weird, I've had most of these.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:57pm Listening Out There:

....funny...now I'm itchy....
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:57pm chris:

Itchy, all of a sudden.
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:58pm chris:

glad its not just me
  Wed. 6/6/12 4:59pm Listening Out There:

...Hey, I caught it from you :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Communicable via keystroke!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:03pm kat330:

@Ike: I'm of two minds on the whole "cost to our health system" irresponsibility argument. Because, OTOH, you have well-insured folks -- even mostly healthy people -- being given expensive, totally unnecessary tests and prescriptions, ALL BECAUSE they have good coverage. The system is sicker than the populace.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:03pm Carmichael:

Station ID, Irwin, STATION ID!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:05pm Philosopher:

@Carmichael: Identity is a highly contested issue.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:11pm Drollama:

Carm, No need to be a Narc, man. The log says he did it. I can see the log, it says he did it.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:11pm FCC:

Irwin's gone rogue...get him in your crosshairs, you are authorized to take the shot.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:13pm FCC:

Gosh darnit, you only hit the vacuum!! Abort, abort!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:14pm kat330:

Did Lindy list "Irwin in your crosshairs" as one of those itchy CDs?
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:15pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Irwin has turned into Fredricks
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:16pm MD:

The "OLD CODGER" taught me that!!!!!! The lap top thing!!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:16pm Edison:

Damn I just used a hammer to fix my clam shell
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:17pm kat330:

Oooh, is this a prophetic tune about our esteemed host? :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:18pm Venus:

Leave my clam shell alone TAE!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

You need a hammer on a clam shell, because those shells are hard. Oyster shells too.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:21pm kat330:

At least you get pearls of wisdom from some oyster shells.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:23pm Mike East:

I thought a shucker?
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Marmalade! Apple Marmalade, since they were signed to the Beatles label.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Play something by the band Kitty next :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:26pm kat330:

Plenty of rain in the sunny pop.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Rain is still sunny when it's pop: Beatles "Rain", Spector's "Walking In The Rain", Badfinger's "Walking In The Rain" (Apple labelmates!)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Spinal Tap's Kinks-like number "Rainy Day Sun"!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:31pm kat330:

@Mike: You mean like
An oyster just off of Nantucket
Was longing for someone to shuck it ?
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:32pm kat330:

AND, to bring us in a circle (not full, but close) Bus Stop and umbrella sharing with Nash. :)

Slim Harpo's "Rainin' in My Heart".

When Irwin spins the Kronos, it also satisfies by jones for classical music -- thanks, Irwin! [A440, RIP]
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:37pm kat330:

My fingertips have Laura's cold.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:38pm kat330:

Peebles/Turner "I Can't Stand the Rain."
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:38pm Mike East:

@kat330 - yes, that'll do.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:40pm Listening Out There:

kat330 -- Is A440 discontinued?
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:40pm kat330:

The l'East I could do -- seriously. ;)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:41pm kat330:

It's your sad LOT and mine, yes.... Though it was never long enough at one hour IAE. Maybe it will be reincarnated as a 2-hour program on GTDR or something.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:42pm Bad Ronald:

Hendrix - Rainy Day Dreamaway
Waits - Rain Dogs
Dylan - Rainy Day Women #12 & 35
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:44pm Basher:

Raining, Raining - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTCQdmIQong
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:44pm Drollama:

. o O (Where's the love for Prince, "Rain" song lovers?)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:45pm Listening Out There:

kat330 - Sorry to hear that, but thanks. Like other stations, classical stations tend to have playlists...and I just scream at hearing Pictures at an Exhibition or equivalent over & over again. Would be nice if A440 returned (hint to wifmoo programming manager...)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:45pm the glowing one:

Washington Phillips was ahead of his time. ;)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:46pm kat330:

I love Prince!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Amyyyyyyyy!!!!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:47pm kat330:

Hard to be a full-grown woman and NOT be enamored with Prince.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:49pm kat330:

Yeah, LOT, the classical station around here bites.

Oh, this is nice.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Amy followed by Linda Perhacs!!
(This is what Irwin was referring to a couple weeks ago: LISTEN, LEARN, and turn this ALL THE WAY UP!! Earbuds maxed out here!)
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:51pm kat330:

I adore harmonies of 4ths and 5ths.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:53pm Drollama:

kat330, Lots of people pay to go to fancy music schools that teach parallel 5ths is "wrong". Good on you for forgetting that part or not caring!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:54pm kat330:

Heh!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't know what those are called but I love those double-tracked harmonies!
Going to listen to that again when I get home!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:55pm kat330:

Not a matter of forgetting or caring -- just trusting that what tickles my ear can't be a bad thing.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:56pm Carmichael:

Ray Conniff is so hep.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

I know "minor 6ths" because I asked my guitar teacher how to play the Beatles "Flying"--the finger work is tough but it sounds great.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:57pm the glowing one:

Hm, this Ray Conniff bears a striking resemblance to James Last. Must be a coincidence. That their music is kinda similar must also be a coincidence.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:57pm kat330:

Drollama, those harmonies used a lot in early music, like Guillaume de Machaut, and I've always been drawn to it. But there's also the band X, who use 4ths all the time.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Triumphant conclusion to this program!
I'll be crossing over to 7SD for boiler talk..

Thanks Irwin! Have a good night everyone!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:58pm kat330:

Yes, thanks, Irwin. Later!
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:59pm Carmichael:

Thanks, palley.
  Wed. 6/6/12 5:59pm Listening Out There:

Thank You Bye Bye
  Wed. 6/6/12 6:00pm the glowing one:

  Thu. 6/7/12 10:16pm H. Felton:

I bet the Wisconsin election results made the Old Codger uncharacteristically happy. One might say voters rejected the Dems as if they were going out of style.
  Thu. 6/7/12 10:22pm Irwin:

Mr. Felton: The news hasn't yet reached Courtney. He's still catching up on newspapers from 1952.
