Listener comments!

  3:03pm Sean Daily:

  3:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Vote for Irwin!
  3:04pm Sean Daily:

Huh, a rare picture of Irwin sober...
  3:05pm G:

The late Irwin? He's dead????????????

The Old Codger, though -- I scan the obits every day for his.
  3:07pm Mike East:

I'm in the middle of reading an Irwin Chusid article about the Legendary Stardust Cowboy. Very interesting piece.
  3:10pm Matt from Springfield:

BYO Button. Get down, at The Irwin's Party!
  3:13pm Sean Daily:

"The wall is on the writing"? What a very odd choice of imagery.
  3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Of all haunted graffiti artists, Ariel Pink is definitely the best.
  3:18pm Sean Daily:

  3:20pm das:

Irwin's voice crashed my flash player
  3:22pm Droll:

Irwin, Don't sell yourself short. You're not just the 7SD fluffer, you vacuum the studio.
  3:22pm Sean Daily:

Daddy, what's a CD?
  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Archaic *physical* media like CDs! Playing them in your car! Post it to FACEBOOK why don't cha!!
  3:23pm G:

"Irwin Corey lives in an apartment in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan. In 2011 it was reported that for the last 17 years he has panhandled, with the help of a walker, for change from motorists exiting the Queens-Midtown Tunnel, which is near his apartment. He has said that the money is used to purchase medical supplies for children in Cuba."
  3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: He was buying medical supplies (rum), and when he found he couldn't ship it to Cuba from NY, naturally he moved it to his apartment for safekeeping. Do you know how quickly rum evaporates indoors...
  3:31pm Michael:

Afternoon old pal and fellow travelers.
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Jaggery is unique and strangely beautiful, keep playing her/them.
And a catalogue track from Procol Harum!
  3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Afternoon Michael!
  3:33pm Sean Daily:

"The weakest man is stronger than Samson when blah blah blah blah blah blah blah." Dammit, how can I be stronger than Samson! ENUNCIATE, MAN!
  3:34pm Michael:

When I worked on the Upper West Side I’d see the Professor occasionally. Tiny Tim all the time in the stationary store downstairs.
I don't think he ran for president though.
  3:39pm Katya Oddio:

Was excited by the earlier playlist title, "I know all about classical music. I watched cartoons as a kid." Thanks for the grin.
  3:43pm Ike:

At the beginning of the show, I liked how Irwin took personal responsibility for being late, unlike those godless commie hippie liberal fascist welfare-addicted pinkos who infest our society and never take responsibility for anything! DAMN COMMIES!
  3:44pm Irwin:

Hi, Katya. Long time, etc.
  3:45pm G:

@Mike 3:34: The wikipedia entry on Corey says this, and footnotes it to a NY Times article: "During the 1960 election, Corey campaigned for president on Hugh Hefner's Playboy ticket."
  3:46pm Katya Oddio:

Hi there! Usually here, only quietly.
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

That frrentic pause wouldn't have happened if Irwin was here ON TIME!!
  3:47pm Michael:

I meant Tiny. (smiley). Anyone remember Pat Paulson running in '68?
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Katya!
  3:48pm Woo:

How does Verlaine make a living these days?
  3:49pm das:

TV repairman?
  3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

So, when are we going to get a Top 10,000 chart countdown? If you played them all at once you could fit them all in a 3 hour episode.
  3:52pm Caryn:

Maybe just 1,000 songs at a time. That would still technically be just a 10-track set.
  3:54pm Listening Out There:

..but aren't you going to release your income taxes?
  3:54pm Brooklyn Calypso Phonograph Emporium:

Your net wealth is NEGATIVE! You owe 21 MILLION dollars to us!
  3:55pm Dan B From Upstate:

Don't care for Starbucks. Can't say I care for Dunkin, either. Timmy Ho's is where it's at. Again... personal preference.
  3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

And that helps to stretch out the show; unless one of the songs is three hours straight, that show will eventually run out of steam before the end :)

Hiya Caryn!
  3:56pm Woo:

In my humble opinion this is Jonathan Richman's best song.
  3:58pm das:

If I can't get coffee from starbucks I just give a few dollars to the first corporate employee of any kind I can find
  3:58pm Caryn:

Hi Matt!
  3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@Dan B: That's so Canuck though, most of us don't even have that option!
So is they have pretty good coffee, doughnuts etc?
  4:00pm Cory:

I know this is uncool, but I make my own coffee.
  4:01pm Woo:

In place of coffee I'm going to try Honey Boo Boo Child's Go-Go Juice (Mountain Dew and Red Bull)
  4:04pm das:

Woo, That's a manly drink to order from you local biker bar too
  4:04pm G:

Not manly enough? Just order it in a dirty glass.
  4:05pm northguineahills:

Hmmmm, I'm digging this Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble. I think this is at least the 3rd week in a row Irwin has played Trader Horne, which is a good thing.
  4:06pm das:

I'm scared of bikers these days, most of them seem to be dentists and lawyers
  4:08pm Caryn:

Woo, will a dollar make you holler like Honey Boo Boo?
  4:10pm Droll:

. o O ( 7/4 time signature and Mellotron?! Is Marco one of those closet prog rockers? )
  4:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Go MB!! Can't wait for his live appearance!
  4:13pm Dan B From Upstate:

@Matt, I've never had a bad meal from Tim's. Breakfast or lunch. Breakfast sandwiches are good, and the donuts don't leave that greasy film on the roof of your mouth like Dunkin does. If you've never noticed it, you will from now on.
  4:17pm Caryn:

Somehow I suspect WFMU listeners are more partial to Russ Tamblyn's turn in "Twin Peaks" than his old musical roles. Of course, what do I know? I'm partial to both.
  4:18pm Andrew Waterloo:

i usually go to Tim's cause there is basically one on every corner here.
  4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

The Karaban caravan coming in from the West Coast! Another performance that should be great.

@Dan B: Thanks, and I'll be sure to measure the grease residue of DD next time I go there.
  4:19pm northguineahills:

Caryn is correct in my case.
  4:21pm Sticky Wicket:

Hit me up if you want something to remove the greasy film from the roof of your mouth
  4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@Andrew: In Waterloo Ontario? I'll bet! ;)
  4:25pm Mike East:

I finally found a copy of this Who album for 40 bucks at my local record store... a little broke right now, so I'll have to go back for it.
  4:26pm Woo:

I am enjoying your programming Irwin. A pinch of classic rock is never unwelcome.
  4:26pm Sticky Wicket:

Wow, $40?
  4:27pm SteveL:

$40? Wow. Used to see that album on every visit to the record store, (same as "Budgie" and the like.) Of course, I never picked it up.
  4:28pm a cautionary tale:

One day someone accidentally switched the decaf with the regular. It was a warm summer afternoon in the math building and Chuck dozed off in the middle of his abstract algebra class. One by one the students started to fall asleep. Disgusted but unswayed, the teacher sat down and kept writing on the blackboard. I walked by the door in the hallway and heard a 'scriiitch'. I backed up to see what was going on and the entire class along with the teacher had fallen asleep, his chalk lying at his
feet on the floor.
  4:28pm Mike East:

its the original, not reissue...in mono i believe.
  4:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Thomas! Classic indeed!
  4:31pm Ringo:

What a performer!
  4:31pm chris:

holy hell
  4:32pm Das:

Thomas never gets old.
  4:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, the cautionary tale sounds like a Matt Twilight Zone episode!
  4:33pm Karaoke:

Thanks to me, you can be treated to stuff like this at your local bar every weekend!
  4:33pm Woo:

Hmmm, what if someone recorded someone singing along to Thomas singing along to the Beatles? Where's my tape recorder?
  4:34pm Das:

I've never noticed the passion behind these lyrics
  4:34pm Shower Stall:

I've heard worse singers
  4:35pm mick:

fucking make it stop
  4:36pm Mike East:

I'd buy the original Thomas recordings for 40 bucks.
  4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Woo: There's no time! Record directly into your computer and send it to FMU, stat!
  4:36pm Mike East:

so good.
  4:36pm Laura L:

Music for the eighth day of the week.
  4:37pm Woo:

Thomas blew his mind out in a car.
  4:38pm AnAnonymousParty:

I assume 'Sings' is Thomas' last name?
  4:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Can't you liiiistennnnn, people?
  4:38pm Thomas:

I should be singin' like a log
  4:38pm Lloyd:

Where does one find Thomas Rewrites the Beatles?
  4:38pm andymorphic:

i didnt think anything could be a worse listening experience than amanda but you did it
  4:39pm Irwin:

@Lloyd: right here!
  4:39pm Nerd King:

Contraraoke - The art of performing karaoke without regard to the actual lyrics.
  4:39pm Sean Daily:

Well, any mashup with "Devil Town" in it is... unexpected.
  4:39pm Caryn:

@andymorphic: that's why Irwin makes the big star bucks!
  4:40pm Lloyd:

haha, google lists your playlists as the only place.
  4:41pm Woo:

Oh God what have I done?
  4:42pm 104.3:

@Woo: You got Irwin to steal our playlist.
  4:43pm Ajax:

AMANDA is my favorite part of Irwin's show.
  4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Lloyd: That's why it's right here! Not available in stores!
@Nerd King: I could have a good time doing Contraraoke!
  4:43pm Classic Rock Mama:

I used to hate this show ya'll
  4:43pm sherri:

  4:44pm ?:

is this ZZ Top from vinyl, or did they get around to remastering this album on CD? The 1990's discs had crappy sounding re-recorded drum parts . . .
  4:44pm Droll:

104.3, Irwin stole the ZZ Top from Therese, she played it a few days ago. I almost blew a speaker 'cuz of it.
  4:44pm Irwin:

@Caryn: Alex Chilton also used to make the Big Star bucks.
  4:44pm Mike East:

sorry, 104.3, I think this is too much of a deep cut for you.
  4:45pm Matt from Springfield:

It's a real bitch trying to search for US locations of Tim Hortons, but I've found the closest one to me is in Norfolk, VA. And increasing numbers in NYC, so if I remember I should hit one up next time I'm in either city.
  4:46pm sherri:

there's a band called zz pot
  4:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Easy ZZ.
  4:51pm Carmichael:

I am later than Irwin. Hello everyone.
  4:52pm Andrew Waterloo:

Billy Bob Thornton toured the country in a ZZ Top cover band
  4:54pm Katya Oddio:

Thinks back with a smile on a rural cemetery on a sunny afternoon long ago and far away
  4:56pm John Cage:

I'm later than all y'awl!
  4:56pm Irwin:

@K: Those were the days. Or a day, anyway. A memorable one.
  5:01pm Katya Oddio:

Thank you for that day.
  5:02pm Irwin:

There's pix!
  5:04pm Katya Oddio:

Some you took on my back, you nut
  5:04pm Irwin:

{demonic laughter}
  5:06pm Listening Out There:

...hey, who's moderating these comments, anywho? Isn't this getting a little personal? I'm telling...
  5:08pm Katya Oddio:

Listening Out There, there was a goat involved, too. Now there's something to tell.
  5:10pm Listening Out There:

...well, as long as it was a consenting goat, I guess that's all that matters...
  5:11pm Irwin:

The goat was not harmed. It was already dead. So THERE!
  5:12pm Wiseass:

Get a room! :P
  5:12pm Listening Out There:

*Ring*Ring* "Hello...FCC?" :)
  5:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: By any chance do you have these strange rural cemetery pics posted?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Irwin:

Eight years ago: irwinchusid.blogspot.com... (photo taken in Sept. 2004)
  5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Pretty location indeed, thank you.
  5:17pm Caryn:

Nice pic, but where's the dead goat?
  5:18pm G:

In an unmarked grave
  5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: Did it ever occur to you that by playing Angil & the Hiddentracks frequently the last few weeks, their tracks are no longer HIDDEN!?!
  5:22pm Irwin:

Since I'm the only one playing them, and my show isn't the BEST on WFMU, no one will notice.
  5:23pm northguineahills:

...and I was just about to say how much I enjoy Angil & the Hiddentracks.....
  5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: Angil & the Somewhatpublicizedbutstillmostlyobscuretracks.
  5:27pm The Hiddentracks:

Thanks, dick.
  5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Hiddentracks: Have you considered camouflaging your album covers? That would keep your tracks hidden in some way...
  5:35pm Caryn:

Well, considering the SE discussion today on Ken's show, I think it's safe to say that there's at least one body in the world who will insist to the ends of the earth that they've never even heard of Angil & The Hiddentracks, no matter how often they're played on the radio... So, partial success!
  5:38pm The Hiddentracks:

@Matt: No, but we did sell our first album in Norah Jones cd cases.
  5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@HTracks: Sneak attack! I like that idea!

And Spirit! Love this band, here's a new one to me!
  5:48pm Jason from UK:

Great show
  5:49pm northguineahills:

Talibam! used to take Vice Recs samplers (found in rec stores dumpsters) and use them for their cdrs, although they add a little paint..., so, not quite the same... and they were given to me in person.
  5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice choice of Moody track!
Have you been hanging out with DJ Julie, Irwin? ;)
  5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Well I guess this cliffhanger will just have to wait until next week.
  5:57pm northguineahills:

so, I wouldn't confuse which cd it would be.
  5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Great tunes today Irwin!
Have a good evening everyone!
