Listener comments!

  3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Hola Irwin, and all Karabanians!
  3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

The Vaccines rediscover ABBA demos.
  3:16pm Michael:

Hallo ole pal Irwin and others as well.
  3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Hallo Michael.
  3:20pm Michael:

Right back atcha MfS.
  3:22pm still b/p:

In the 70s, I felt like I coulda used an ABBA vaccine.
  3:26pm ?:

I'd blame Clint Eastwood.
  3:27pm Laura L:

What about whining?
  3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Nicolas Slonimsky, true classic from the 365 Days Project!
  3:30pm Michael:

A different approach to advertising I'd say.
  3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@Michael: It all depends on *what* you're advertising. Don't sell the product--make the audience relate to the uncomfortable feeling in their BOWELS, by an uncomfortable old man saying it.
  3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Listening on 128k stream w/ QuickTime. Has anyone else had problems with the Flash stream this week? Pop-Up Player for Archives works, live stream not.
  3:40pm seang:

Yes, the Flash stream is eerily silent for me too. And has been for about a week or two. Maybe I have to update this computer or something.
  3:40pm Chinchilla:

We've been having bad problems with ALL streams this week! Thought it must've been server-side problems at our company, but maybe there's something going on WFMU-side also?
  3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Mr. Snuggles, and "Ms. Mr. Snuggles", I love you.
  3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

All browsers I've tried that's the case--maybe it is a WFMU side issue, perhaps having something to do with that GoDaddy outage?
  3:42pm das:

Matt, sometimes I think of you as Mr Snuggles
  3:42pm snuggler:

I don't think I've heard this on the air since "Incorrect Music" Dr. Love is in the house!
  3:43pm common:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Liz B.:

WFMU has been having trouble with our Flash stream in the latest version of Firefox. The Flash stream works fine in other browsers like Chrome. If you're on Firefox, try the 128k or 32k MP3 stream instead.
  3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@das: Um...yeah.... *slowly backs away from das*
  3:46pm Carmichael:

Coming in late but digging the very idea of a track from Smiley Smile. Well played, Irwin.
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Liz B!
At work I have only Firefox and IE (for Flash), and can only stream w/ QT. At home there's no issue. Good to know though.
  3:48pm ipoyu:

after all this i might actually contribute to this years marathon ,,,,,, naaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
  3:50pm Whiner:

I've never let a so-called SOLUTION keep me down yet!!!!
  3:50pm common:

i love smiley smile
  3:51pm Whiner:

Gawd Irwin, and I guess your favorite Zeppelin album is "Coda", right?!!
  3:51pm Droll:

Irwin, Correction: Only on this show is Mr. Snuggles considered. The "Classic" is superfluous.
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@common: I prefer the recent "re-constructions" of Smile, but I agree with you on that. Just because Smiley Smile isn't *Smile* doesn't mean that the material is lackluster--on the contrary, it's a very pleasurable album.
  3:53pm Irwin:

@Common, Whiner, Droll: Indeedy.
  3:57pm Parq:

It oozes, ansd schmoozes, and works the room.
  3:57pm Carmichael:

An unusual situation: Smiley Smile was the re-construction of the assumed *lost* Smile tapes, and was released as soon as they could cobble it together. For a long time, fans could only dream about what the original would have sounded like. Until the original was rebuilt, polished up and sent out the door many years later.
  4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Great harmonies! They harken back to CS&N.
  4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Philly Boy Jason!
  4:11pm quinn:

i can totally tell he is from KOP by his accent
  4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@quinn: Didn't know the King-of-Prussians had such a distinctive accent!
  4:23pm Label:

Believe me Jason, this is a brilliant marketing move! You'll soon be in the money this way--and I'm talking Nickel Creek money!!
  4:24pm Bread Pan:

I'm filled with self-loafing.
  4:28pm common:

is that brian mctear singing backup?
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Jason for coming in!
Thanks also to Jim and Jerry and David and Irwin and WFMU!
  4:37pm Carmichael:

Wow, Elkins sounds like Del Amitri.
  4:37pm Irwin:

@Carm: Is that good? Or neutral?
  4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Love the mashup! Who does this? GHP, CCC, one of the usual suspects?
  4:50pm Carmichael:

No no, very good. I have always thought their sound was a unique one, but I am happily wrong. I shall procure the Elkins catalog posthaste.
  4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

There it is! RIAA, I consider him one of the usuals.
  4:55pm Matt from Springfield:

YES!!!! THOMAS sings "Black Is Black"!!
With Re vv vee rrr bbbb!!
  4:56pm Peanut Gallery:

I love this song! Uh, is this the original?
  4:57pm Matt from Springfield:

O-M-F-G. Thomas. Sings The Beatles. With Los Bravos still playing.
  4:58pm other david:

I am in awe of this Thomas track...

Obvious influence on Ariel Pink :P
  5:01pm Laura L:

I agree with every other thing Mencken wrote.
  5:02pm Irwin:

I agree with every other thing that you agree with, LL.
  5:03pm Matt from Springfield:

H.L. Mencken is most def worth a read if you haven't already, at least a look at his quotes.

Be sure to remind the Old Codger of Mencken's passing, in case he's waiting for H.L. to show up at his birthday party.
  5:04pm Irwin:

Codge took several nips of Sly Weasel Bourbon and lit up a Rancho Malario in honor of Aitchel.
  5:05pm Peanut Gallery:

Searched this old computer to see if there were any songs related to Mencken. All I found was a Word doc with this: "Though he rarely discussed current events per se, Shepherd offered wry observations about the national scene. He was fond of quoting acerbic humorist H.L. Mencken, and his perspective on the country could perhaps best be summed up by the Sage of Baltimore's reply to the question, 'Why, if you find so much lacking in America, do you live here?' HLM's reply: 'The same reason men go to zoos.'"
  5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi OD!

Imagine: Thomas singing Ariel Pink lyrics to the tune of "A Hard Day's Night"! Followed by the inevitable im-provs :)
  5:06pm G:

IC is so right about HM. I found a way to include an anthology of his work in a class at I taught while at NYU back in the early 90s. Great writer, and an actual free thinker (so rare; most people are simply members in good standing of some well-known congregation or other). He also did a lot to create the Modernist American literature canon -- f.e., the guy practically made Dreiser's reputation, and they corresponded a huge amount about writing and ideas.
  5:06pm Brett:

Ohh I love crazy drumming like this!!! Love it
  5:07pm Peanut Gallery:

Who wrote that and why is it on my oldest computer?
  5:07pm Carmichael:

Speaking of influences, could Kenny Clarke be channeling Sandy Nelson?
  5:10pm Irwin:

HLM: "Man at his best, remains a sort of one-lunged animal, never completely rounded and perfect, as a cockroach, say, is perfect."
  5:12pm other david:

@Matt: that could be quite brilliant!
  5:13pm G:

HLM's rep went way down after 1932, because he thought FDR was ridiculous, and almost all the other "cultural types" were if anything left of FDR.
Avatar 5:13pm Irwin:

Mencken, describing F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1920 book 'Flappers and Philosophers': "a sandwich made up of two thick and tasteless chunks of Kriegsbrot with a couple of excellent sardines between."
  5:15pm Jen:

great show today! Thanks
  5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, whatever the "Kids for Kids" project is, it's approaching "Cars for Kids" in its grating-ness!
Avatar 5:16pm Irwin:

More HLM: "Government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods."
  5:17pm Kids for Kids:

1 877 KIDS 4 KIDS, donate your kid today.
  5:17pm G:

@Irwin: Good thing *that* doesn't happen any more.
  5:18pm Peanut Gallery:

IC: The Mencken quotes are funny and true...in the worst possible way. Not feeling better!
  5:18pm Carmichael:

Boy, Ambrose Bierce has nothing on Mencken!
  5:24pm Matt from Springfield:

"A Man and a Woman" -- this is that European 60s instrumental I can't never remember the title of.
  5:24pm chris:

What would we do without you, Irwin?
  5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

"A Man and a Woman (French: Un homme et une femme) is a 1966 French film written and directed by Claude Lelouch and starring Anouk Aimée and Jean-Louis Trintignant."
  5:26pm berluscon's nose:

Award winning set dude. i nominate you fer a Grammy DJ award!
  5:29pm Peanut Gallery:

Thanks MfS, I didn't know I didn't know the name of that tune until your confession. Hopefully the name will sink in...Has there ever been another woman named Anouk?
  5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

The Acrylic Strilich!
  5:32pm Tom / Rarus Avis:

Ivana XL is now known as Eddi Front.
  5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@Peanut Gallery: Hopefully I might remember the name as well! At least enough to know where to search on WFMU to find it. Incidentally I think Anouk is a female French name that's not popular, but recognized throughout the Francophone world.
Avatar 5:37pm Irwin:

HLM, 1922: "A man of active and resilient mind outwears his friendships just as certainly as he outwears his love affairs, his politics and his epistemology. They become threadbare, shabby, pumped-up, irritating, depressing. They convert themselves from living realities into moribund artificialities, and stand in sinister opposition to freedom, self-respect and truth. It is as corrupting to preserve them after they have grown fly-blown and hollow as it is to keep up the forms of passion after passion itself is a corpse. A prudent man, remembering that life is short, gives an hour or two, now and then, to a critical examination of his friendships. He weighs them, edits them, tests the metal of them. A few he retains, perhaps with radical changes in their terms. But the majority he expunges from his minutes and tries to forget, as he tries to forget the cold and clammy loves of year before last."
  5:43pm Brett:

This is awesome!!!!
  5:45pm Peanut Gallery:

What a guy?! Ach, when my wife next notes I have no friends I'll hit her with this. (shouldn't that be "tests the mettle"?) Please HLM, don't hit me again, I wanna hear "Caravan" with a drum sola.
  5:45pm Tom / Rarus Avis:

By the way, Eddi Front's newest project is, I think named Gigantic and is getting great reviews.
  5:46pm Synca Damayo:

Sounds like Tangerine Dream and Tortoise doing a film score together.
  5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

While I don't do that with friends and those I care about, I do like his language of your ideas and passions going "from living realities into moribund artificialities". Excellent way to put it! Don't you hate when that happens!
  5:48pm Irwin:

@PG: I transcribed that one years ago from the printed source. You could "test" metal to determine its strength. (Unless I took my eyes off the page while transcribing.)
  5:49pm Peanut Gallery:

check, makes more sense that way I think
  5:52pm Peanut Gallery:

Think I'm going to hug my new Dylan album closely and hope/dream that us humans are good for something...Happy birthday HLMencken!
  5:54pm Droll:

Curious how Facebook flips HLM backwards: rack up as many superficial friends as you can and never let one slip away. Is Mark Zuckerberg the anti-Mencken?
  5:56pm Peanut Gallery:

{Droll, agreeing with you w/o leaving a digital footprint}
  5:57pm Parq:

Been in an out of hearing range all afternoon. That last set was cool as shit.
  5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Great show Irwin, fun as always! Thanks also to Jason K. & Company!

Have a good evening everyone!
  5:59pm Peanut Gallery:

Freedom hole? It's not the bullet that kills you...
