Listener comments!

  3:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Which artist made that parody image?
  3:03pm Alison Porchnik:

She was only trying to help.
  3:03pm Art Critic:

It's Botticelli's Snooki. I'd know it anywhere.
  3:05pm G:

A woman in a Spanish church "fixed" a painting's face, as pictured. Someone decided to push it further by photoshopping the same fix to B's Venus.
  3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, thank you AC. Must have been from its philosophical ancestor, the banal "Amalfi Shore".
  3:09pm Parq:

Matt (and anyone else):
  3:10pm common:

  3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Parq.
And, find on Twitter w/ tag #EcceHomo to see more, or if you want to join in the fun.
  3:14pm Alison Porchnik:

You're in such a Goldfrappy mood today, Irwin.
  3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Alison: I wonder if Irwin had a Gold Dust Milkshake--that can put you in a Goldfrappe mood.
  3:24pm Banana and Louie:

Rrrrufff! Woof, woof woof! Rrrruffff!
  3:25pm Banana and Louie:

. o O (First Pet Sounds, then Sgt. Pepper's, doesn't anyone consider that those whistles hurt our ears!)
  3:27pm "Brian Homo":

Irwin! I got a bootleg copy of Banana and Louie's death certificates! Bet *you* think it's beneath you!
  3:27pm mark vt:

Wow. This brings me back.
  3:28pm Alison Porchnik:

@ Matt: From what I understand, Irwin drinks an angel dust milkshake every morning before his daily constitutional. A regular man is a happy man, as anyone over 35 can attest.
  3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Maximize your happiness, minimize your soberness! That gels with Irwin, all right!
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice Latin music! What would you call this "big band" style, salsa?
  3:32pm Dave B:

This is my favorite Fresco Meme:

  3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@Dave B: It's laughable. Which in this case is very good.
  3:37pm das:

Thanks for that link Parq, now I can properly laugh.
  3:42pm Parq:

Das (and others), you are welcome. I have an elderly relative by marriage in Spain who, in the same situation, would probably have done the same thing. And Dave B, that's literally LOL.
  3:44pm Dave B:

Its a fresco fiasco!
  3:44pm jan:

Is "Left Myself Behind" by Toy from Toy Rock and roll, because I like it!
  3:46pm Alison Porchnik:

Can't get a man with a gun? It seems that's the only way I can get a man these days.
  3:47pm Jeffrey Johnson:

@Betty: Wanna bet?
  3:48pm Sean Daily:

She can't get a man with a gun? Well, hell, Irwin, she just doesn't belong to the right Facebook groups.
  3:48pm northguineahills:

Ondatropica seemed more cumbia.
  3:49pm woodwind:

I remember playing clarinet in the orchestra for the highschool production of Annie Get Your Gun - 22 years ago. I wish I couldn't.
  3:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Woot! Love this bed music, a classic!
  3:58pm duke:

2/3 of me is listening to WFMU. The other 1/3 is working.
  3:59pm 1 of 9:

Great set Irwin!
  3:59pm Sean Daily:

So... I take it we should watch Betty Hutton.
  3:59pm woodwind:

Is Betty related to Timothy, or is it just a common name?
  4:00pm 8 of 9:

If you're not in Philadelphia PA, you may as well not even order a "Philly" cheesesteak! I can not find ANY decent one outside Philly itself!
  4:01pm woodwind:

some Chicago hot dog joints do Philly Cheesesteak right, not many
  4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: But wear goggles, a helmet and safety coat, Irwin said that she's truly explosive.
  4:02pm berlusconi's nose:

  4:02pm Sean Daily:

  4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Certain places outside of Harrisburg have also made very great ones--I think direct experience of the "real thing" is prob the surest way for a restaurant to make a pretty good one.
  4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

What's up, nose of berlusconi? How's it feel being away from the centers of power again?
  4:04pm G:

@1in9: Many DJs, Irwin included, state that most comments are not programming-related. But nearly every comment to that point in today's show referenced either the music or the Image Meme Irwin posted to his playlist. We're left to infer that the "1 in 9 postings are about the show" comment cannot be taken as a literal statement of fact, and instead is only meant to provoke the curious to peruse the playlist and comments.
  4:05pm woodwind:

Breadmen's (if they're still open) in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, NC also had good cheesesteak, only not quite as "Philly".
  4:05pm Alison Porchnik:

I thought I didn't really care for him but now I kind of like him.
  4:05pm mark vt:

Philly Cheese Steak outside of Philly would be ersatz. As with anything trying to be recreated.
  4:05pm E.F. Hutton:

When I speak, people listen.
  4:06pm sherri:

kindy reminds me of Circle..........
  4:06pm woodwind:

when I speak, it's gone with the wind
  4:06pm das:

I never listen to this show, I just come to look at the pictures.
  4:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Amy Annelle!!!!! W00t!!!
  4:07pm Alison Porchnik:

This is excellent. So much better than the karaoke version I did two years ago.
  4:08pm Steve:

gorgeous vocals!
  4:08pm Alison Porchnik:

She even said "towd"!
  4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

High Plains Sigh, love the name she has for her label. This song may be "unreleased", but I think I have this one. It's either a CD bonus track or a digital download from her site.
  4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Anything that sells this playlist to the curious, may give them a prod to take a peek and jump on in.
  4:10pm woodwind:

This is highly bittersweet. "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" was my late father's fave.
  4:10pm Jon Kyl:

G, Irwin's "one in nine" remark was not intended to be a factual statement.
  4:10pm Alison Porchnik:

I am playlist curious (yellow).
  4:10pm G:

@MfS: I wasn't complaining, just analyzing :-)
  4:12pm Cavity Creeps:

4 out of 5 dentists recommend Trident to their patients who chew gum.
  4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@woodwind: Wow, combined with the song itself that would be quite bittersweet.

Similarly "For The Good Times" was my grandmother and late grandfather's song--always bittersweet to listen.
  4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Don't worry, as was I! :)
I love to analyze too...some may even say I'm YZE about it! ;)
  4:15pm Alison Porchnik:

Oh gosh, Roy Smeck. Thanks, Irwin!
  4:15pm Parq:

This whole set is wonderful.
  4:16pm woodwind:

@Matt: Have you heard Johnny Cash's version of "For the Good Times"? Stirring.
  4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Amazing effect, steel guitar love song about honeymooning in Buffalo NY!
  4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@woodwind: I haven't, but I can bet that would sound GREAT.
  4:19pm woodwind:

It's on JC's last album... my last morbid comment, i swear
  4:20pm G:

This mic break is suspicious so far
  4:21pm Sean Daily:

I saw had a suspicious movement after lunch today. Does that count?
  4:21pm Caryn:

Dammit, can't get the stream to work! But based on the playlist, I'm reminded of the Lester Bangs essay on the Troggs I just read a week ago.
  4:21pm Woo:

Perfect time for the Terry Stafford Elvis imitation.
  4:22pm duke:

I would like to report suspicious DJ activity.
  4:22pm Stanley:

Who says I'm paranoid?
  4:22pm Sean Daily:

Well, hell, Irwin, that includes everyone on this comment list. I don't have the time to fill out all that paperwork.
  4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

...But every WFMU host is mighty suspicious. And I can't jot down their physical description! And to top it off, now the pencil I'm jotting all this down with is starting to look suspicious to me....
  4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, hello Caryn! Long time no type!
  4:26pm Carmichael:

OK, now officially listening. 'Sup, Irwin and peoples?
  4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Might as well keep a Federal office "Bomb Threat Card" with listeners at all times:

"Place this card under your phone. Don't hang up, keep caller talking. Questions to ask: When is the bomb going to explode? Where is it right now? What does it look like? What kind of bomb is it? What will cause it to explode? Who placed the bomb? Why? What is your name? What is your address? Is there more than one bomb? Exact wording of the threat: "
  4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello (once again today!) Carm!

Trio! The German Trio!
  4:29pm paula pc:

my favorite Trio song!
  4:29pm ralf:

Hey Trio! Danke & Cheers from Frankfurt/Germany.
  4:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Guten Abend ralf! Danke und Prost!
  4:32pm Robert:

The bathroom ambush episode of 7SD I would not count as a failure at all.


They tried to get people to steal money & goods from the bathroom, but actually wound up with MORE being left there than they had set up. It's only a failure in that Andy failed to prove most people are more evil than he.

  4:32pm Michael:

Hey now old pal. Hey all music lovers. Hey Nineteen.
  4:32pm Woo:

I can't understand the words.
  4:34pm O'Dyte:

Reg Presley. Nice! Love the Troggs, particularly, With A Girl Like You.
  4:34pm Robert:

Woo, she's singing that embarrassment and love exist in Hell.
  4:37pm Woo:

Hell is other people, so said the existentialist. That's a good one.
  4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Ooooh, I remember this version of "Take Five"! LOVE it!
  4:43pm common:

wow!! great cover of take 5!
  4:43pm Alison Porchnik:

Wow. This is supercool!
  4:44pm Savory C:

Hot Mallot Action!!
  4:56pm Alison Porchnik:

We hate you for your freedoms, Irwin!
  4:56pm Sean Daily:

Okay, now I'm completely confused.
  4:57pm Scoundrel in Last Refuge:

You HAVE to play the song about Freedom!! It's BECAUSE you are FREE to so, that you MUST play it!!! FREEDOM!!!
  4:57pm Alison Porchnik:

Now we love you for your freedoms.
  4:57pm Stanley:

Irwin - you are normal and want your freedom. Understood.
  4:57pm Homeland Security:

This guy probably resents being patted down at the airport gate. Uppity!
  4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Need I say it? "Freeform is freedom"!!
  4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa! Buddy Rich quality of drummin' here!
  5:01pm Laura L:

I just feel so trapped in this song, I can't explain it.
  5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

"Lighthouse's self titled album! Get Buddy Rich kind of drumming, in a Clay Pigeon kind of band!"
  5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@Laura: Perhaps you tried to escape from it, but were held back by the "machine gun fire" of those drums!
  5:03pm duke:

I forget, do we hate or love Ariel Pink? Is he suspicious?
  5:03pm mark vt:

I think of freedom each time I look at a couch. There is on average a thousand pounds of skin in/on a couch. Because isn't it true that people shed about a thousand pounds of skin a year?
  5:03pm Sean Daily:

This song is the prettiest I've ever heard about self-abuse.
  5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

These Ex Cops are quality pop rock. Strong hook, and a jangly feel!
  5:17pm mark vt:

I am just fake..I mean fact checking on that thousand pounds.
  5:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Good one mark: "fake checking", fact checking when you're very sure the other person is wrong!
  5:29pm mark vt:

Guess who freedom fact checks stuff... Yes! You know who!
  5:30pm seang:

Bert rulz
  5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Freedom fact checking!
  5:35pm POTUS:

I'm on Reddit AMA:
  5:39pm Rick in SC:

Can't believe I'm listening to Captain Beyond!
  5:42pm mark vt:

Nobody knows how many pounds of flesh gets left on couches. Even here on Irwin's forum. I bet it is close to one thousand pounds. I bet back in the seventies during the orangutan craze some of the skin from them went on some couch.
  5:45pm Matt from Springfield:

"The moderators and admins have confirmed this thread; this is actually President Obama."

IAmA actually has quite a lineup of famous people scheduled to go on Reddit--take a look at the right column.
  5:49pm Rick in SC:

First heard them in Freshmen year of college and this brought back memories
  5:50pm PMD:

Hi Irwin, Actually listening live for once.... Nice orange!
  5:50pm mark vt:

The skin/couch thing is real because you know how hard it is to lift a friend's couch when you help him move. Must be about a thousand pounds of skin in those couches that people ask to help you move.
  5:57pm Listening Out There:

Good show. Thx!
  5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

All right! Amazing show Irwin, thanks!
Look forward to Jason Karaban and Marco B coming in!

Have a good night everybody!
  5:58pm other david:

Great show, thanks Irwin!
