Not Mr. Morgan. But such a great album.

  3:06pm Cooh John:

Rock and roll all the way to Memphis Egypt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Ikє:

Did BLT spill over to 3:02 or 3:03 there? That track at 3:00-3:02ish was still John Fahey?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm common:

i heart mekons!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Irwin:

does the air mix sound OK?
Avatar 3:16pm V Priceless:

sounds great, Irwin!
  3:17pm Listening Out There:

Sound: Vocals are a bit rough, fuzzy. Others hear that?
Avatar 3:17pm Fredericks:

Quite a few years ago, I asked Jon to write "something anarchistic" on a CD he was signing. He wrote "Respect the flag."
Avatar 3:18pm V Priceless:

killer shrews!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yes, hot & vocals maybe a tiny bit overloaded, but good & loud & full.
Avatar 3:24pm Fredericks:

I always thought it was play on "icon."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- reference also Pink Floyd's 'Astronomy Domine': 'Dan Dare - who's there?'...
  3:25pm Dean:

By "flag" he might have meant a copy protection flag. He didn't want you to rip and burn the disk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm common:

i like the image of a flying dinner plate
Avatar 3:27pm Fredericks:

Maybe, Dean, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm efd:

and a crack of thunder is heard as Jon Langford sings the words "inclement weather."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm efd:

heard by me, at least.
  3:28pm P-90:

"Dan Dare" is a classic, the English Buck Rogers, not as well known here as it should be, even b SF and comics aficionados.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm YETI BOB:

I think Go4 themselves were disappointed with the sound of it, which is why they re-recorded it 25 years later ("Return the Gift")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...somewhat like what Townshend said about 1st album by...Pink Floyd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Kat in Chicago:

Lovely to hear Mr. Langford on the air today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm paul b:

My sister has a beach house in Milton Delaware, When there I often pop into the Dogfish Head brewery store (as one does) I just realized, looking at Irwin's playlist page, that YOU'RE THE GUY WHO DOES A LOT OF THAT DOGFISH HEAD LABEL AND POSTER ART (Johnny Cask etc) Consider me even more of a fan than I was before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm common:

love that brewery, paul b.!
  3:52pm G:

My uncle is next door neighbors with the Dogfish owner. That's some huge factory they built in Milton recently...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Ike:

Well, it's not like there's much else happening back home on the Delmarva Peninsula. If they have to build beer factories somewhere, build them next to the "Delmarvelous" chicken farms on that flat boring land where I grew up. Maybe the beer will taste like chicken-fish heads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm drr:

listening in Austin, TX. good stuff, all new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm paul b:

Home of the 90 minute IPA, Burton Baton. G. Yeah, They got a pipeline that runs about a quarter mile from brewery bldg to the bottling plant, It's gradually become a good sized facility. Milton can't complain
Avatar 4:01pm glenn:

malt does more than milton can.
Avatar 4:04pm Sem Chumbo:

Just enthralled by the music today and your guest, Irwin. Thanks!
Avatar 4:05pm coelacanth:

oh,i am so Thankful for this being archived.
i couldn't help but be late.
...Howdy Irwin,Jon, others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm common:

is the Documentary available anywhere? if anyone knows.
  4:08pm Dean:

A Graham Parker vibe here.
Avatar 4:09pm coelacanth:

as much as i love Hank Williams, i sorta like the mekons' "lost highway" better than the original! i often want to hear it at the pub,but it's not in the jukebox there.

...'digging this.
Avatar 4:11pm Fredericks:

I thought it was "hell's" roof. Who is Hal?
  4:12pm fred:

how bout some mekons?
Avatar 4:16pm glenn:

fifty shades of frank.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Carmichael:

Hi folks. Bruised and battered at work, but still standing.
  4:27pm JakeGould:

Does Joe Frank still read these? Did his voice change? Sped up and pitch-shifted? Something is off about these recent Joe Frank episodes?
  4:31pm a guy:

The recodings come from various periods in Joe Franks long career. Irwin doesn't play them in order. Sometimes we get Younger Joe sometimes we get Old Joe. This is the first time i've ever heard Singin Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm common:

pretty wacky!
  4:34pm johnnyed:

Joe frank Zappa
Avatar 4:40pm Steve Willoughby:

Joe Frank Kerouac
Avatar 4:41pm V Priceless:

I remember this episode - definitely one of Joe's finest, IMO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Carmichael:

Yes, he jammed with the marketers of electric carving knives and aluminum foil.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Webhamster Henry:

Joe Frank and the Whore of Mensa.
Avatar 4:46pm Sem Chumbo:

Joe's being a kinda of a dick. I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm common:

is it him or his character who is a dick? hard to say, i guess.
Avatar 4:52pm Sem Chumbo:

Sorry, common. I confused the actor and the part. The role is that of a kind of dick, I think, when it comes to specifying a sex worker.
But I wonder who Joe had in mind when he wrote the part?
  4:53pm ?:

Hello KING IRWIN !!!!!

@DJ Irwin: BIG thumbs up for that chat and live music with Jon Langford! An interesting guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Great garage version of 2000LYFH
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Anyone receive the 7SD newsletter today? The plan is to have a Google hangout session with Ken & Andy. Ken was looking for people to send in their Gmail e-mail info to participate. (Not sure if Irwin has mentioned that; I was on the phone for a bit.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Irwin:

Ken from HP is correct: if you want to participate, email your gmail to ken at wfmu dot org.

TJ sound so pervy in a good way :) KISSSSSS
  5:25pm Tony Seymour:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Irwin:

Hey, welcome Tony!
  5:29pm Tony Seymour:

listening to the station starting 3am today.....now its 11:30 before lunch......another blistering 84 degree tropical heat day as usual..... get up early so the sun doesn't do me in!
  5:31pm slowbear:

Why doesn't mars get a holiday
  5:33pm Listening Out There:

I'd like to sit here and chat, but my UFO is double parked...

'The best sign of intelligent extraterrestrial life is that they *haven't* contacted us.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Irwin:

RRN63 - Earthlings might be bad, but extraterrestrials SUCK. They're evil. You saw that TZ episode "To Serve Man"? They're ALL like that. And they have bad fashion sense. They dress like idiots. They think they're ahead of the curve, but they're so far behind. Brooklyn hipsters dress better and even their beards are better than those of aliens, who lack facial hair.
  5:42pm slowbear:

Yeah that's why we're shooting Doritos commercials into the big dipper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They look like bugs. Everybody knows that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm common:

i like the the alien in the original alien was just naked. he looked pretty cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm common:

oh sorry, that was a she.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm ikє:

You've had "offers from other orbs," Irwin? Stop fronting! Everybody knows Neptune didn't really want you, Jupiter has a terrible housing crisis, and Saturn just SAYS it gets good FMU reception, but actually doesn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm common:

yay! moondog! there's a handsome alien for ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Ikє:

And don't even ACT like you could hitch a ride to Alpha Centauri or those other solar systems. I've been sticking my thumb out waiting for a passing ship for 500 years, and *nothing*! These are the boonies, I tells ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Caryn:

Since the alien society seems to follow the bee pattern, the alien in Alien would seem to be a male drone. But what do I know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Irwin:

Ike: I exaggerated. Nebraska made an offer. They're sort of like another planet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Caryn:

@Ike: Maybe if you started hanging out at secluded spots, preferably in the middle of Iowa or somewhere, and dressed like a stereotypical redneck and drove a pickup truck, the aliens would come, since that seems to be the one segment of Earth society that keeps getting picked up and probed by alien beings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm ikє:

Heh, @Caryn, excellent point, but of course, most of us know better than to let the probers pick you up. Those jerks aren't even usually going anywhere but to other planets full of gullible rednecks.
