Good Afternoon Irwin. Cool business cards.

There was nothing wrong with the old WFMU web site.

I'm just sayin'.

Hey Ir
  Wed. 1/20/16 3:06pm P-90:

"Manager, Neutron Products" is my fave, but "Pulverizing Machinery" is close

If you click on the picture of the business cards, you won't set off an atomic bomb....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 3:10pm rrg:

I did that, Laura. A well-deserved plug. And I'm still here to tell it.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 3:10pm Irwin:

The cards are from a new book designed and published by Laura (Blast Books).
  Wed. 1/20/16 3:11pm Laura L:

Thank you! This is an interesting read too... http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2016/01/the-business-cards-that-made-the-bomb/424278/
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 3:16pm rrg:

C'mon, you don't have to spell it "Jarby Mc Coy", do you?

Unless he told you that it should be spelled that way, it's a mistake.
  Wed. 1/20/16 3:16pm P-90:

Just read the New Yorker piece. I'm gonna need this book now.

Hey Joe Frank fans, just so you know, Joe is home from the hospital but the expenses are already adding up fast: nursing, PT, meds, IV nutrition, equipment, and this will continue. He can still use your help - every bit counts! tinyurl.com...
     Wed. 1/20/16 3:24pm Listener Robert:

Did it ever say on that Facebook what his current diagnosis was?
  Wed. 1/20/16 3:27pm jarby Mc Coy:

Sorry rrg but he does it well
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/20/16 3:27pm Alison Porchnik:

Nothing specific but there were a lot of wrong ones (thankfully). His wife provides more detail in the first post on The Go Fund Me page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/20/16 3:34pm Alison Porchnik:

This is an amazing song
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 3:36pm Irwin:

Sparrow's a genius. He transcends genre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 3:39pm Carmichael:

That's a sweet book, Laura. Way to go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/20/16 3:40pm Alison Porchnik:

Brian! Best cover ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 3:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like a tasty little meal slightly unfamiliar spices these sets...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 3:40pm rrg:

Wow. I have this album but failed to notice that the "Coconut" cover was by Brian Dewan.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 3:46pm Erella:

You are right, Sparrow is a genius. Thank you for going to visit him and bringing us these stories (and music)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 3:59pm rrg:

Game shows! I can get behind that. Especially old ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 4:17pm DreamCricket:

Irwin, these Joe Frank episodes are the most amazing things I've ever heard.
Thank you for airing these.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 4:19pm Irwin:

They don't lose their impact.
  Wed. 1/20/16 4:19pm P-90:

This is Joe at his most melancholy. I'm cringing. He's that good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 4:19pm Mike East:

Hey Irwin, hope you are well. Have you heard or played Joe Frank's "Redneck Rounder"? A friend just recommended it to me today. I think wnyc must have played it recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 4:20pm Mike East:

looks like a Work in Progress episode.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 4:23pm Irwin:

Redneck Rounder features an actor. I don't air shows that don't include large amounts of Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 4:26pm Mike East:

Your curation has been top notch thus far. Thanks.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 4:28pm Irwin:

Link for Joe's Medical and Recovery Fund now posted under the Los Alamos Rolodex cards.
  Wed. 1/20/16 4:30pm P-90:

I've noticed before that Irwin seems to avoid playing the shows that are dominated by performers (other than Joe.). Now I know why, it's policy.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 4:31pm Irwin:

I just don't enjoy them. They almost always sound contrived.
  Wed. 1/20/16 4:33pm P-90:

Joe might get a kick out of knowing that a link to his fund is posted online here, right "under the Los Alamos Rolodex cards."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 4:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the writing, voice, presentation - I'm reminded of what somebody said about Hendrix (of all comparisons) - Joe Frank is the Founder of a School no one else has Graduated from...
  Wed. 1/20/16 4:39pm P-90:

"...a Dear Clown letter..."
  Wed. 1/20/16 4:44pm Anonymous coward:

hey Irwin, do you go back and scrub the Joe Frank listings from old playlists?
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 4:46pm Irwin:

Yes, by arrangement with the Joe Frank folks.
  Wed. 1/20/16 4:46pm Marc15:

Joe is 100% correct. My ex-boyfriend destroyed me psychologically and I don't ever want to fall in love again
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:02pm Mike East:

A poop in the bush is worth two in the hand...I think

2016 is the Year of the Bush in the Poop...speaking Jebwise, o' course...

What V Priceless said! This particular song is my MtheH fave. Escher album cover wasn't bad either. Thanks Mr Chusid.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 5:10pm Irwin:

One of the best groupie anthems ever.

It is a perfect show...so far.

I've never heard such enthusiasm for Washington, D.C. in my life.
Avatar    Wed. 1/20/16 5:21pm Irwin:

Nor have I, BB. It's unseemly and unwarranted.

You'll hear -- Don McL will be on the air with Ken and Andy.

Will he punch anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:35pm rrg:

This Sparrow thing is great. As are the others you've aired today. Thanks.
Avatar Wed. 1/20/16 5:36pm V Priceless:

I wonder if Mighty Sparrow has any fun Mitchum stories
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:38pm Mike East:

Like this Eddi Front song very much. Hers or a cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:39pm Mike East:

Toshiko Akiyoshi is rehearsing here in a few weeks!! She's super nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:41pm rrg:

I like the names you drop, Mike (and I don't mean that in any pejorative sense at all).
  Wed. 1/20/16 5:42pm P-90:

How do I reserve my copy of the limited-edition vinyl pressing of "The Mighty Sparrow Apartment Session"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:42pm rrg:

You don't want the vinyl, P-90.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:42pm rrg:

Vinyl sucks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/20/16 5:54pm rrg:

Wow.
  Wed. 1/20/16 5:54pm P-90:
