Like cat litter? You may also like, “Larabar: Fruit and Nut Food Bars.”

I think I get it--if you put multiple cats into the cat litter, they will clump together...like peanut butter and chocolate chips clump together in a food bar.

along the lines of Irwin's main RAP today.....i quote beat poet Bob Kaufman

WAITING
(c) Bob Kaufman, 1967 all poems are from GOLDEN SARDINE,
City Lights Books, 1969

SOMEWHERE THERE WAITS, WAITING
A BOOK IS WAITING, WAITING,
TO BE WRITTEN.
COLD COLD PAGES, WAITING,
TO BE WRITTEN,
MAN SEEKS GOD,
IN A BOOK.

SOMEWHERE THERE WAITS, WAITING
A PICTURE WAITS, WAITING,
WAITING TO BE PAINTED.
COLD COLD CANVAS, CANVAS.
WAITING TO BE PAINTED.
MAN SEEKS GOD IN A PICTURE.

SOMEWHERE THERE WAITS. WAITING,
A WOMAN WAITING, WAITING,
COLD COLD WOMAN,
WAITING TO BE LOVED,
MAN SEEKS GOD IN A WOMAN.

SOMEWHERE THERE WAITS, WAITING
A MAN IS WAITING, WAITING,
COLD COLD MAN, WAITING,
TO BE WANTED, WAITING.
MAN SEEKS GOD
IN MAN

SOMEWHERE THERE WAITS, WAITING
A BABY IS WAITING, WAITING.
WAITING, WAITING TO BE BORN,
COLD COLD BABY, WAITING,
TO BE BORN, BLOOD OF EARTH,
WAITING TO BE.
MAN SEEKS GOD,
IN A BABY.

Irwin, you consistently delight me with perhaps the most interesting, eclectic show, week in and week out, on WFMU. A station with a lot of great shows. The way you put a set of music together is masterful. Thank you.
  Wed. 2/18/15 4:59pm Pez:

Hey whats the music he is talking over

Thank you, Mark. There's a lot of competition on this station for Imam of Eclecticism, or Vicar of Variety.
  Wed. 2/18/15 5:10pm Ern:

wittle bwues man is sad about it
  Wed. 2/18/15 5:12pm Mark:

Yes there is, you consistently play the most music I like, though. That Miles album was one I was very late in discovering--it's become one of my favorites. There's youtube footage of him recording it, too--literally in a darkened room with the film playing, with some French guys he never met before. One day. Done.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:13pm TDK60:

I've never heard this Byrds before. Must be a bonus, an outtake?
  Wed. 2/18/15 5:14pm I k e:

but I'm not actually in the bldg. I'm remotely volunteering by building new spaceways near Saturn so

OK, Ike. Next time you're in the building, come in for verbal fisticuffs and a beverage.

Would love to argue .... about whose cat is more awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 5:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@TDK60: You into Gene Clark's solo stuff? That one's sort of pointing that way...
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:18pm Irwin:

I can quack like a cat!
  Wed. 2/18/15 5:19pm Laura L:

I was going to say it sounded hairballish!
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:19pm TDK60:

RRN63: Yes, what I've heard of it; still catching up. Clark's singing voice was special. I got to meet him once at a Byrds "Tribute".
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:20pm Irwin:

Clark and Hillman were the soul of the Byrds. McGuinn and Crosby were the rock stars.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:22pm Irwin:

The Byrds w/o Clark were like XTC without Barry Andrews. Good, but a different band.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:25pm cheyenne_h:

I <3 Srawl!!!
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:26pm Irwin:

Yesssss!!! Time for the Scrawl boxed set.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:26pm TDK60:

I almost agree with Irwin. Though I think McGuinn and Crosby had soul too, sort of.
  Wed. 2/18/15 5:27pm Fredericks:

Did Gutterball have a song called "Scrawl"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/18/15 5:33pm coelacanth:

hello Irwin
hello all
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 5:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- wull - GeneClark was the primary writer - it's not just his voice. & there's the thing Ray Davies said about Pete Quaife the bassist leaving The Kinks: if not the original people - it's different...Crosby has long said he'd like to do The Byrds some more - but McGuinn's had his fill...
  Wed. 2/18/15 5:35pm I k e:

BACKWARDS FOREVER
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/18/15 5:36pm coelacanth:

it makes no sense to not "back-announce". in the olden days,before ubiquitous internet playlists,"forward-announcing" made it VERY difficult sometimes to figure out what was what.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 5:46pm Carmichael:

Ike, wish you could come down.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:50pm TDK60:

RRN63: I didn't know Clark was the primary writer. I feel they still did some great work later, after Clark left. But I understand your point about original groups. Too bad the Byrd survivors won't play!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 5:51pm dale:

hello mr. irwin. enjoyed the marshall crenshaw and this mr. wylie. do you ever delve into grant mcLellan solo stuff?
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:51pm Irwin:

First two albums were mostly Clark and Dylan tunes.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 5:53pm Irwin:

dale: no, but I'll take the recommendation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 5:54pm dale:

i only know 'horsebreaker star' but it's a good one. sure the liberry there has it.
