Settling into the Sanctuary of Orange.

First time listening in my new work digs. Is good.
  Wed. 8/16/17 3:02pm Polyus:

Finally watched the Lee Morgan doc last week. Pretty good, lots of cool old clips and such, but it still doesn't shed much light on why his wife shot him.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:02pm Irwin:

Speaking of Orange sanctuaries, is Hoboken Jack in the house?

Which billboard are you voting for, Irwin?

I'm pretty sure that's my cat, and he's been moonlighting without my knowledge, apparently.

Ike: Such a difficult decision. All are wonderfully offensive.

Can't wait for Joe Frank fix
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:11pm Alison Porchnik:

About today's statement: Seeing as there are actually 613 commandments in total, it's likely that *someone* was downloading them via torrent on the sly. Not naming names or nothing
  Wed. 8/16/17 3:11pm Laura L:

Second Joni Mitchell for the day after Ken's Feminist episode this morning!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:11pm βrian:

In some respects I'd be more inclined to donate to a kickstarter fund that aims to cut down a billboard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 3:19pm rrg:

We don't hear Joni often enough on WFMU.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:24pm βrian:

"stole all her joulerie"?? Shocking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:26pm chris:

hi, Irwin and all.

i miss Princess. are they doing anything new these days? i went to look them up the other day and couldn't find anything.

burn and rob <3
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:28pm Irwin:

Princess was led by Howard Rigberg, who has been recording as My Robot Friend for years. He also did some recordings with Bingo Gazingo.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:29pm SueAdynamo:

this song is just making me sad
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:30pm Irwin:

Because Lenny will get 12 cents?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:30pm chris:

i just didn't get My Robot Friend, honestly. ah well. thanks, Irwin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 3:31pm rrg:

Who's paying these 12 cents? Not me! My WFMU money went for other things. I'm sure of it.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:32pm SueAdynamo:

no. that's not it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:33pm Ike:

Ew, Lenny Kravitz, what a gross poser. I demand that you only send the stickiest, grimiest, nastiest 12 old pennies to him. Be sure to give them to the dingo to gnaw on first.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:35pm Irwin:

Wish, command, Ike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:36pm Alison Porchnik:

This song would never fly in today's gender-sensitive environment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 3:36pm rrg:

Damn. I don't have this album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 3:36pm rrg:

You're probably spinning a platter.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:37pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Make sure you send Jimmy & Ethel your Shiniest pennies!
  Wed. 8/16/17 3:37pm Laura L:

Ethel and Jimmy ain't gonna get a cent offa your playin' dis are dey?

Dey oughtta, though.

"Lose a foot or arm"
     Wed. 8/16/17 3:42pm Listener Robert:

Which came first, the song or the movie of "Nudist Colony of the Dead"? I can vouch for the movie's being pretty good, albeit slow paced.
     Wed. 8/16/17 3:43pm Listener Robert:

It's a musical. Maybe those can't help butbe slow paced.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:43pm BennettCap:

Nudist colony of the dead? Sounds like the locker room at the tennis club.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:43pm Alison Porchnik:

I have never heard this song before. Catchy! Very Teutonic.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:44pm βrian:

Julie Andrews in that film, I presume.
  Wed. 8/16/17 3:46pm Laura L:

Joyce Mord-oh? "Mord" in German means murder...
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:47pm The Oscar:

I remember My Robot Friend and Bingo Gazingo were slated to play up here in Boston many moons ago, but it got snowed out, and it kills me. The same series featured a double bill of BJ Snowden and Irwin!
     Wed. 8/16/17 3:48pm Listener Robert:

Hold another naming contest!

Whe I first heard it, Ken had to explain the joke before I got it, then I realized it'd been the best selection. But if the joke's now lost in threatened litigation, "Upsala College" was a good runner-up. Nobody's going to sue over that, right?
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:57pm The Oscar:

DG was in that series too! Just need some Thoth and we'll have a full set :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 3:58pm ChrisB.:

What about Robert Hall? No one's using that one right now. You could sell men's and boys clothing, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 3:59pm rrg:

Tammany Hall.

Frivolous Lawsuit Hall?

"Afterwards"? Wait. What happened?
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:12pm βrian:

"breath that could peel paint." That could be useful for restoring windows.

Nothing quite like waking up at 1pm PST to the splendid sound of Joe Frank...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 4:39pm rrg:

"Fluffypants Records". How am I supposed to find things if you make stuff up?

It's actually MCA, I'll have you know.

"Now you don't have a balloon, and you've soiled your pants": my summer, so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 4:44pm Alison Porchnik:

It's so much easier to listen to this episode and laugh now that I'm not hearing the doppelgänger of my [former] supervisor in the guise of David Cross.
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 4:44pm joe mulligan:

this conversation can't be scripted - is it?
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:46pm Marc15:

The "Twilight Series" is just as popular as the Bible?
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:46pm Mr. Lorry:

every one of these guyz has an ''extreme'' idea of god...the one dont believe there is a god and the other one believe so much in bible and stuff. Fuck that
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:47pm JakeGould:

Is this David Cross?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/16/17 4:47pm Alison Porchnik:

yep
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:48pm Mr. Lorry:

is he high?

People work for the tip because nobody will stick the whole thing in.

5 minutes is NOT a lot of time in the bathroom.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:51pm The Oscar:

@Joe I can't imagine it's scripted-- this sounds like pure Cross improv.
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:52pm J Dream:

Twilight was YUGE
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:53pm Marc15:

The guy Joe Frank is interviewing is insane!

I love these Joe Frank episodes, look forward every week

You have got to play That Tito Puente track without talking over it. Please. :D
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 5:00pm Irwin:

Not a bad idea. There's a break in the middle I edited out. The recording is titled "Ti Mon Bo."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 5:07pm Carmichael:

What about Leo, Mary Lou!? I just had a birthday. c'mon ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 5:08pm Carmichael:

@Brian, I saw your comment on Radio BLT (but apparently you couldn't). I had the same viewing problem until I switched to Chrome. I normally use IE11.

  Wed. 8/16/17 5:45pm Laura L:

What about taking anti-suppressants instead of anti-depressants, could a man still get term life insurance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 5:45pm common:

Same to you Carmichael!

Followed up nicely by some dreamy alt-pop!

No, not your last post; the one about the Tullis and Clark stuff!

He's not done, yet, Laura. I don't think, anyway.
