On Matt's latest, "This Perfect Crime," there's no shortage of the great story-songs laiden with catchy hooks and dark, meaningful lyrics that he's known for. Matt Keating returned to Irene's show with guitarist Steve Mayone for a live set.

A nice opening set. I'm grading assignments. My students benefit from my improved mood on Tuesday nights, lol....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Tome:

home now and ,, Irene now , on Tuesday even ,, I just sit back and "ahhh"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

What do you plan on playing for the extra second tonight, Irene? Do you have to split it with William?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Uncle Michael:

I'm planning a really fantastic blink. One for the ages...
  10:09pm Listener Robert:

The leap second was added at 0 hr. UTC, so it's there already.
  10:11pm Listener Robert:

It was split between Chris T. & Gaylord Fields.
  10:11pm #4:

GMT !! universal time! How I miss my shortwave.
  10:12pm Karen:

These days we have to worry bout the BedBugs!! Hi Matt!!
  10:13pm Listener Robert:

I used to count off the secs. of that last minute on WWV when they added a leap sec. Some yrs. I didn't know whether they were doing it or not & had to count to find out. Usually New Year.
  10:15pm #4:

5000, 10,000 etc lol....
I still have my radio... got to dig it out!!
  10:18pm #4:

Mr Keating is very captivating....
  10:20pm Karen:

Beautiful... as always... :>
  10:35pm JakeGould:

The Brits have bad food and bad coffee. How do they live? I mean they got decent chocolate, right? And tea, right? And Indian food but that doesn’t count, right?
  10:40pm JakeGould:

And Dr. Who. Tom Baker era that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Irene Trudel:

Yeah, Jake, I'll have to check in with Sean in the UK. He can update us tomorrow morning when he wakes up (it's 5 hours later for him now).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Irene Trudel:

Well, Doctor Who counts for a lot!
  10:45pm JakeGould:

@Irene: You know what’s odd about Dr. Who? Is now I have to qualify I only care about the Tom Baker series stuff and not anything else. There was this brief period from the 1980s to the 1990s where you just said “Dr. Who” and everyone automatically knew you meant Tom Baker. Feh! Millennials!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Irene Trudel:

Ah, that's too bad Jake! I was a HUGE fan of Tom Baker-era Doctor Who. But I really loved David Tennant in the role. I think he's a close second, in terms of the "nutter" factor. And the latest guy, Peter Capaldi, is pretty good too. What can I say, I'm a big "Whovian."
  11:20pm JakeGould:

@Irene: Respect all of that. I have weirdly specific eras for a lot of things I like, so that’s me more than anything.
  11:21pm JakeGould:

And thank you for the “Yes” in light of Chris Squire’s passing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm northguineahills:

I agree, I Irene (about Dr. Who). Thanks, and have a great night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Irene Trudel:

Point taken, Jake. You picked a perfectly fine era of the show to put on a pedestal.
  11:27pm Holasoymilk:

Thanks for playing yes tracks <3
  11:28pm Holasoymilk:

Hey, dr who is still good even now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Santos L Halper:

Thanks for the Yes Irene. The new '72 live release is quite good, listened to that today. These 2 tunes highlights of course.
  11:32pm KP:

Hello, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Holasoymilk and Santos! Love the Yes, although some of it it really doesn't hold up well for me. Hi KP!
  11:35pm P-90:

Hi all. I'm really crushed by Squire's passing. I'm that much of a fan of this band, I have a big, long history with them, and with Mr. Squire's music. The only bass guitar I own is just like his, because it had to be exactly that way. That kind of a fan.
  11:38pm JakeGould:

Well, I think of “Yes” the same way I described “Dr. Who”… Some of the classic stuff I love, but not the whole catalogue. And another thing… your brownstone creature pic is just so fascinatingly beautiful. Good eye, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Irene Trudel:

P-90, Squire had such a distinctive sound, and he was a really interesting player. That's one of the things I found so powerful about Close to the Edge.
  11:42pm JakeGould:

And here is Tom Baker and “Time Lady” Romana in some cool commercials for mini computers. www.youtube.com...
  11:42pm JakeGould:

Whoops, that montage sucks and is the wrong video. Here, this is the one… www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Mark the Sardine:

Irene, just wanted to say that I'm loving this Yes set! Been awhile since I've heard so much good Yes work..
  11:44pm KP:

Even the snobbiest new wavers and punk rockers were saddened by this guy's passing. He was a class act in a field that has few.
  11:47pm JakeGould:

@KP: Yeah. The punk “Yes” backlash is annoying because their first few LPs are just really great.
  11:48pm Carmichael:

Hi Irene. Way behind on my listening chores. And your significant other, I am to understand, wrote a brilliant Squire eulogy in the NYT. Truly nice.
  11:50pm Yes:

Yes yes yes yes yes, oh Yes!
  11:50pm KP:

They did a Byrds song on their first album! Honor thy Byrds.
  11:50pm P-90:

@Irene: perhaps the simplest, most encompassing thing one can say about Squire's bass playing on arrangements like Close to the Edge is that his bass is like a section of an orchestra, like the horns or winds, that meshes with what the other instruments are doing as an integral part of the piece in that way, rather just working with the drums as a "rhythm section" in the more common way. His parts are also famously melodic in the way McCartney's and Entwhistle's are, but his are the most sublimely contrapuntal, if that makes sense.
  11:51pm Carmichael:

@alan: I am also in Sacramento!
  11:58pm JakeGould:

@P-90: Agree. But the thing I have found with most prog bands like Yes is that their first few releases are so amazing because—let’s face it—pretension of a lot of their concepts have been so well honed that the product is acceptable. By a prog band’s 3rd or 4th release, they don’t have enough time to refine their craft into art so it all becomes mindless noodling.
  11:59pm KP:

Bye bye, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Irene Trudel:

P-90, perfectly put. Good Night, All!
  12:00am JakeGould:

Great show, Irene!
  12:01am P-90:

Thanks, Irene.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 5:00am Sean in Bristol UK:

Hi Irene, thanks for the mention, I guess our forte is tea but there are the usual chains for a decent cup of coffee, Costa, Starbucks, my favourite is Krispy Kreme, the coffee there is fab. Great set from Matt Keating and a fine tribute to Chris Squire.
Avatar 9:34am Van in DC:

MMMMM, I think I might get TWO count 'em TWO entire Irene shows in one day! (If I can stay awake tonight, and if I can even remember to tune in tonight and if I can get this entire show in this morning, which I'm gonna start working on.... right..... about...... NOW!)
Avatar 9:49am Van in DC:

Loving the Richard Thompson, which reminds me (on a kind of semi-related note) that very soon I get to see Steeleye Span live!

When I was in London last year for KaTe, yeah, I never found a good cup of coffee...

Loved the first half of the show!
Avatar 1:19pm Van in DC:

Alright, finished! Wonderful show, many thanks Irene! See ya tonight (as it were) on the next playlist!
