Hi ya, looking forward to Mr. Strausbaugh on your show today!
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:22pm Hoboken Jack:

What a fine radio I am listening to the show on today!
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 3:23pm Irwin:

Which is smarter, Jack - your phone or your radio?
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:24pm Hoboken:

Today, definitely the radio.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 3:27pm Irwin:

And how is the guy listening to it?
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:28pm Listening Out There:

I'm listening on a computer. It's not smart. It's just a computer...
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 3:29pm Irwin:

Computers are only as smart as the people who build and program them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 3:31pm rrg:

That's what they want you to think.
Avatar    Wed. 11/9/16 3:31pm Polyus:

Unless it's that super smart murderous computer from Terminator 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 3:32pm rrg:

Or Colossus. He was a problem too.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 3:32pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Same for polling programs!
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:34pm JakeGould:

46% of people eligible to vote didn't.
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:37pm JakeGould:

Or maybe I'm wrong.
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:38pm Listening Out There:

Voters are only as smart as the people who build and program them.

In a reader's review of the classic book "How to Lie with Statistics": "When all else fails manipulate the data."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 3:45pm rrg:

Ooh, I love that book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 3:45pm rrg:

Also "1066 and All That." I love that book too.
  Wed. 11/9/16 3:46pm JakeGould:

This was "Dewey Defeats Truman" but with HTML5 and CSS3 responsive graphs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 3:47pm rrg:

What, you added a "Format" column to your playlist?
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 3:57pm Irwin:

That was an errorz.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 4:04pm northguineahills:

When I worked for the NYC DEP, I saw some scans of old engineering as-builts of some Manhattan sewers from the 1850s.

ha! thanks for playing, I never knew of this
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 4:19pm Stevel:

Just reserved this book at my library. Great interview.
  Wed. 11/9/16 4:22pm Laura L:

You can see Dan Sickles's busted leg bone at the National Museum of Health and Medicine (formerly Army Medical Museum)--it's on display there today, yes.
  Wed. 11/9/16 4:25pm flashbazbo:

Please ask about minstrelsy and play some tunes.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 4:26pm Irwin:

wrong book, flash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 4:31pm Stevel:

Leg bone and offending cannonball. (Not horrible to look at, but a bit jarring.)

The Beecher Family lived across from Mark Twain in Hartford, CT.

Mr. Strasbaugh, you going to get into the history of musical theatre in this period and slightly post-Civil War?
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 4:37pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Tammany Hall is going to be torn down to build another ugly office building. Whoop.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 4:37pm Webhamster Henry:

The original Tammany Hall was where the Con Ed Building is on 14th street. Also where Tony Pastor's original Vaudeville was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 4:39pm Jeff:

I like that whole Kill Henry Sugar album - it's on Swing Back And Down, isn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 4:40pm Jeff:

Oh, there - you've got it on the playlist now.
  Wed. 11/9/16 4:41pm flashbazbo:

Ok Irwin. You're gonna take terry gross job. She can't go on forever.
     Wed. 11/9/16 4:44pm Listener Robert:

I tuned in just before the interview started. Weird: The book's new, right? Why do I have such a feeling a deja vu about this interview. I've heard Irwin interviewing Strausbaugh before, but this one's got to be new, right?
     Wed. 11/9/16 4:46pm Listener Robert:

Maybe it's just familiarity w the subject matter, and over a matter of years some material's bound to come up repeatedly. Or just the sound of their voices together.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 4:46pm Webhamster Henry:

If you go to the Fire Museum on Spring street, you can read about this kind of fire company rivalry. But I think, eventually, you'd choose your company and put a plaque on your house showing which fire company was paid to protect your house. Kind of like having private health insurance before Single Payer which we enjoy today. Not.
  Wed. 11/9/16 4:47pm Laura L:

@ Robert--yes, this is a brand new book; you might be thinking of his earlier book "The Village"?
  Wed. 11/9/16 4:47pm ScottC:

Blockade of southern harbors and British neutrality...
     Wed. 11/9/16 4:49pm Listener Robert:

Laura, I might be thinking more than one book back. Maybe I'm just conflating my knowledge of the subject, Mssrs. Strausbaugh's & Chusid's voices, and my reading of Strausbaugh in the NY Press decades ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 4:49pm Jeff:

Nathaniel Gordon?
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 4:52pm geezerette:

This is fascinating.
  Wed. 11/9/16 4:54pm sugarwolf:

I really enjoyed reading The Village, so I look forward to this new book!!
  Wed. 11/9/16 5:00pm andrew:

Augustus Saint Gaudins holed up in the cameo shop where he worked accros from madison square during the draft riots.

The pen is mightier than the sword -- unless you take it literally. Then I think I'm keeping my head down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:03pm coelacanth:

crap. i just missed something interesting.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:04pm geezerette:

Fantastic interview. Excited to read his books.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:04pm northguineahills:

Yeah, great interview!
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:05pm geezerette:

coel, you have to listen later,so interesting! :)
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:07pm geezerette:

Hi ngh!
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:07pm Webhamster Henry:

The Draft Riots at least had some kind of political motivation, but the Astor Place Riot ... was about which actor was better at Shakespeare.(1849). 25 dead, 120 injured.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:08pm coelacanth:

Thanks g. i was looking forward to it but life's been crazy again the last few days and i forgot about it. (car stuff)
  Wed. 11/9/16 5:10pm Laura L:

Thanks Irwin and John, that was swell.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:14pm geezerette:

Webhamster:Wow, what a hot headed audience!

Coel, ugh,not fun!
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:14pm Webhamster Henry:

You can probably tell I'm a nut about this stuff too . That's because I was born in 1832, but lie about my age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:15pm rrg:

The Old Codger is like that too.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:19pm geezerette:

You're extremely well preserved!
  Wed. 11/9/16 5:22pm andrew:

thank you w.m. henry for my first genuine chuckle of the day.
  Wed. 11/9/16 5:26pm Hoboken Jack:

I love the Who Sell Out, especially the fast (deluxe) version of "Mary Anne With the Shaky Hand." Also, thanks for the offline info....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:28pm rrg:

Petra Haden covered that whole album ("The Who Sell Out") in acappella.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:43pm Rich in Washington:

The Good Rats. That was amazing. Totally new to me.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:45pm Irwin:

Rich: 1974, TASTY, their best album. Not a clunker on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/9/16 5:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Nice show today, dear Irwin. Thanks for spinning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:48pm coelacanth:

okay then. electricity's back. caught the tail of that good rats song and it sounded really good, rats. i recorded a concert of theirs broadcast on wnew in the late 80s, even though i wasn't that into them. i still have the 8-track tape...but "phil fleisch" is much better than that was.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:50pm Irwin:

coel: there's a live Rats show online somewhere, found it a few weeks ago, been meaning to listen. On a quick review, it sounded well-recorded and dates from their prime.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:52pm Linda Lee:

sweet music! thanks Irwin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:52pm coelacanth:

Thanks Irwin. i'll look for it.
...and i meant the late 70s actually. i don't even know if they existed in the late 80s.
Avatar Wed. 11/9/16 5:52pm geezerette:

Wonderful show today Irwin,but they always are,so thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:53pm rrg:

Please keep playing Herman's Hermits. We all need more of that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:54pm coelacanth:

oh i missed a "sell out" track too. my 2nd favorite who album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:55pm rrg:

A great show and a great interview today. Thank to you and to Mr. Strausbaugh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:56pm rrg:

That HH song is also from "Both Sides of Herman's Hermits."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:58pm coelacanth:

that's right. i knew i knew that track but i never heard "remind me later". i was confused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/9/16 5:59pm coelacanth:

Thanks Irwin.
  Thu. 11/10/16 12:15pm Joe C Morris:

Thank you kindly Irwin - I actually tried to find the publishing for Until the Swelling Goes Down (on Harry Fox you can do a search if you're interested in who owns the publishing or wrote the song!
