Kenzo, If you call this broken, you'll need to try much harder. I can still see everything Irwin is doing on the studio cam... That's not a vacuum!

That's not a vacuum, that's his hat. Boom boom.

Dueling guitar solos, more time signatures than a Yes song... Why would he use a pseudonym for this important hit single?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 3:49pm Irwin:

The next song is for LAURA L, if she's listening.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 3:51pm Droll:

Damnit! Lane doesn't even list that album on his own website. Is that actually released? And if so, does it have a Trifecta?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 3:51pm Parq:

Dug that version of "Sunshine Superman", which was one of my first favorite songs. As a kid, I was totally pulled in by the reference to Green Lantern.
  Wed. 9/11/13 3:52pm Laura L:

I am--and I know that models don't drink beer from a bottle! Thank you!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 3:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

So, who's up for some Hello Kitty beer?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 3:53pm rrg:

I like to think that this song would have been for Laura even if she WEREN'T listening.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 3:56pm Sem Chumbo:

KFHP: I see nothing wrong w/ an "overly friendly" beer. You up for a trip to the Middle Kingdom?

As usual, enjoying the comments. Meetings prevent me from listening live. Will likely get my fix from the archives...

Ooh, Coma, good one. Thanks to the timeshift participants on both sides.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:05pm Sem Chumbo:

"Soft downy palm of Orpheus." Joe is some kind of purple prose poet by times.

great cut! probably my favorite blue note soul-jazz/funk record
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:49pm Droll:

Before the smelly hippie starts, let me preemptively say it's not selling out, it's buying in! They won The Man over!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:53pm Caryn:

Man, this guy must've had a coronary when the 90s' Woodstock concerts were held. The sponsors, the rampant consumerism, not being able to even bring a bottle of water in, fighting all over the place...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:54pm rrg:

"The mainstream culture, the pig culture"...Wow.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- which proves him right or wrong ?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm common:

pigs, man...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm rrg:

That's more a Brit expression, Caryn ("have a coronary"). I like it.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm efd:

I love the way he's saying "sponsors" with such distaste.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm glenn:

you say getting along together, i say too whacked out on acid to care.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm rrg:

You have to find these guys (the DJ and the caller). They would probably love to hear this.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the Woodstock they burned down was the 1st Festival w/ it's own ATM - & $4 a bottle of water...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:55pm steve:

Caryn, i was under the impression many of these fervent hippies had turned into stock brokers by that point
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

He has a point about a Culture being sold back to itself...Yerknow - *that* doesn't happen...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:57pm Caryn:

@steve: well, I'd say "gotten auto dealerships" or "written organic cookbooks", but whatevs...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 4:58pm Parq:

"Understanding Marx"! Man, does hearing this take me back. Seems like another lifetime when Irwin first started playing this.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:00pm Caryn:

The point in the Woodstock movie I kinda love is, how after about 2 hours of people talking in a kind of mainstream way, Arlo Guthrie takes the stage and sounds like the most stereotypical hippie ever thought up by a Hollywood screenwriter. He literally goes, "I was just rapping with the fuzz, can you dig it?"
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...drop!: time for Brezhnev's funky breakdance...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:00pm Parq:

By the way, I *still* don't know what the third line in the chorus is, except that it seems to be about Freud and Skinner.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:01pm Irwin:

"Freud's a fraud and Skinner's of no use"
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:02pm Caryn:

Irwin beat me to it!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...hmm - a lot of people put Marx & Freud together in a Rational-Materialist philosophy...they both came after Darwin, btw...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- but - yerknow - a PostModernist of my era would say something relativistic like that...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:05pm Caryn:

@RRN63: true, but I guess the song is saying "if you want to get your mind in order, forget all this trendy psychoanalysis bull and just read Marx and Lenin!"
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:06pm northguineahills:

Understanding Marx sounds better then Cornelius Cardew's 70s 'Marxist pop for the working man' ditties.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Right - Psychology is Bourgeois...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:08pm steve:

Caryn @4:57 - that too of course... but my experience from growing up with political punks and angry preachy types is that the ones who toss around language like the Woodstock guy are always the first to do a full 180
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:08pm Parq:

I've been around the WFMU-niverse long enough that "Un'ng Marx" just seems to want to be paired with "Ronald Racist Rambo [something] Baby-Killer Reagan".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:10pm Caryn:

So we have the "everywhere" song, then the "nowhere" song... I almost feel Irwin chose this pair just because of the word pairing. I wonder if there's more to come?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:11pm Caryn:

@steve: yeah, I kinda see him working for some huge insurance company.
  Wed. 9/11/13 5:12pm Juurakkotukka:

Where can I find that Cat Chamber song? What kind of band it is? Loved it! :)
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:13pm Irwin:

Cat Chamber's on Soundcloud. Free DL.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:14pm Droll:

Okay, maybe the DJ ultimately bought in to The Man's pig agenda, but either way, it's not "selling out" -- it's "buying in".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:17pm Caryn:

@Droll: yeah, that's the oft forgotten 4th part of Timothy Leary's turn of phrase: "turn on, tune in, drop out, buy in".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:17pm Carmichael:

Ya, just ask Swamp Dogg.
  Wed. 9/11/13 5:19pm Juurakkotukka:

@Irwin sweet, thanks! :)
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:19pm Carmichael:

OK, now we get to the jangly pop set of Irwin's show. I usually like this part best.
  Wed. 9/11/13 5:19pm beth:

Thanks for playing Sam! It's been far too long since I've heard her.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:20pm rrg:

Yes. I love hearing her. Thanks.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:20pm glenn:

sam phillips is great, and her drummer is the best. (jay bellerose)
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:22pm rrg:

Which makes me think of adding that T-Bone is doing some really great stuff on the ABC series "Nashville".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:27pm efd:

thanks Irwin!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...of course - let us remember that that was the era of Nixon & J. Edgar Hoover & Mayor Daley
- & Ronald Reagan - whom they want to put on Mt. Rushmore - as Gov. of Cali. saying re student protests, 'If it takes a bloodbath, let's get it over w/'...
- & these were indeed Swine.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:28pm Droll:

Irwin, Will the original unabridged air checks be made available for download? I smell bumper source material.

Lee Morgan on trumpet w/Blakey.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:30pm Irwin:

@Droll: Don't know. Ken's call. But we will post all existing 1970 source material as streaming archives.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- oh - that's why it's like perfect burnished fire...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Album :

Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:34pm rrg:

If you can stream it, you can archive it. Just takes a little longer.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...sibling album of 'Night in Tunisia'...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:36pm Droll:

Hopefully Ken will get a whiff of whatever the 70's DJs were doing, inhale deeply, hold it for a few seconds, and exercise his good judgement.
  Wed. 9/11/13 5:36pm Listening Out There:

For a sec, thought this Sun Ra was actually Moondog. Oopsy.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...days of the Draft, days when people went to Prison for two joints - days of Economic Boom (before the 70s recessions & inflation went on) when dropping out & being anti-materialist didn't seem quite so utterly lunatic as they do to us now...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this makes me think of P.J. Harvey - & I don't hate it...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:43pm Caryn:

@RRN63: to be fair, dropping out and being anti-materialist are back in fashion now, only they're called "downshifting".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:44pm Carmichael:

Over here it's called "Occupying".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:45pm northguineahills:

Woahh!, awesome Stephen Merrit cover!

please. most right wingers wouldn't know a socialist if one bit them on the ass.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:55pm Ike:

I don't know about Mac, but last I checked, the best way to listen to a RealAudio archive on a Windows box is to use Real Alternative w/Media Player Classic. Then you can avoid RealPlayer.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yes - lovely...& a few people failed @ this task...
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:57pm rrg:

Down Below. Another classic.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:58pm Droll:

Swell show, I. Have a fun week, and remember, if you find a hippie biting your ass, that's called a "socialist".
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:58pm Jeff:

About those older archives, should you be inclined to follow Irwin's trail of breadcrumbs to them - they're in RealAudio format, which is kind of problematic right there, and are served by a piece of server software which is an archived binary running (sort of) in a compatibility mode, and... well, the whole thing is made up of chewing gum and baling wire.

So if you have odd difficulties listening to them, know that we're aware that the current setup is far from optimal. We're beginning a massive project to transcode all those Real files to a format which is actually still widely supported, and serve them from something which actually works. But it'll take some time. There's a lot of work to do.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/13 5:59pm rrg:

And Tiny Tim recorded this as well.

Thanks for yet another fine half-afternoon, Irwin.

Bye, all.
