Free tampons!

Can't not like a song w/ rhythmic clapping.

Time for Irwin, bet my blood-alcohol level is near yours, or was it that my brain-blood barrier is near yours, dang, time will tell, you're the bomb, Mr. Edward Teller. Fin again wake up!
Avatar 3:13pm northguineahills:

I was hoping this was a band doing indie-folk covers of Acid House tracks.

Anyone click on the link? The youtube says there's a copyright claim by Andy Brackman. :\
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm fleep:

Andy's in the forefront of the sanitary napkin liberation movement.
Avatar 3:24pm Irwin:

The link has been unceremoniously removed for restoration next week.
  3:28pm Listener Robert:

Courtney Barnett! That was the name I was trying to remember in the comment thread on someone's program here a day or 2 ago that I said the song sounded like. But don't ask me now to remember whose song that was.
Avatar 3:29pm Irwin:

Thanks to rrg for this CB track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm rrg:

Whose song was it?
  3:31pm Mark:

That Catwoman is one nutty kitty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm common:

pink n orange does look pretty good brian, i must say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Irwin - Yes, it's probably bad juju to have Andy Breckman unceremoniously removed.

The Classics
Avatar 3:34pm iris:

Eartha followed up by Stalling….stellar!
Avatar 3:34pm Claw!:

Yes! I have Vol. 1 of this. So glad to hear it! :-D
Avatar 3:34pm βrian:

Indeed, my very orange cat where's a pink harness when he's outdoors. Passersby find it quite endearing.
Avatar 3:35pm βrian:

Uh … "wears"
  3:35pm alison:

please play some josephine baker :_-0)))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm common:

man, that sounds cute, brian. and this is making my day, irwin!
Avatar 3:36pm iris:

I have Vol 1 also, but vol 2 is equally terrific.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Mike East:

kids are really missing out on these orchestrations in their cartoons these days, I think.
Avatar 3:37pm Claw!:

Nice, Iris!

Agreed, Mike!
Avatar 3:37pm Irwin:

Stalling was an educator, introducing so many classic melodies to generations of unsuspecting kids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm common:

and missing out on mel blanc blanc? i think
  3:38pm Listening Out There:

Cartoons = The Simpsons. Orchestration = The ads
  3:38pm Laura L:

Yosemite Sam: "You can't keep me in here, let me outta here!" Aw, Irwin you're playing this for Free the Tampons Day!
  3:39pm Listening Out There:

Wackyland. Isn't that where Donald Trump is from?
Avatar 3:40pm Irwin:

Trump is PRESIDENT of Wackyland.
Avatar 3:41pm Hot Mess:

I'd climb a bloody mountain for free crampons.
Avatar 3:41pm Claw!:

He *wants* to be president of Wackyland.
  3:43pm JakeGould:

Hey, not all people who identify as women menstruate. Be on fleek. Know your facts.
Avatar 3:43pm βrian:

Trump pays me a good price for the brush-harvested hair from my orange cat. A pound of fur per week isn't uncommon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Sigurður:

Hmnnmn character placement in the Simpson for health cares...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Sigurður:

  3:44pm JakeGould:

The problem with Donald Trump is he’s melting down way to soon. He needs to stretch this out to the actual election to be fully effective in derailing the Republicans.

Partch's "Delusion of the Fury" at LC: bit.ly...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm chris:

hello, er, should i say, elo
  3:55pm Listening Out There:

Have to wonder whether ELO had the same producer as the Bee Gees. Vocals are similar, IMO...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm rrg:

As soon as you hear that first trumpet note, you know it's Bert Kaempfert.
Avatar 3:56pm Irwin:

ELO was produced by group leader Jeff Lynne.
  3:58pm Listening Out There:

Thx, Generous Host. Reminds me that the Bee Gees were more of a disease than a musical ensemble.
  4:01pm Listening Out There:

Herbie Nichols' original tapes were probably not great to begin with. I think he worked mainly as a lounge pianist...
  4:01pm Mark:

Don Was is running Blue Note now--I would have expected better from him.
Avatar 4:02pm βrian:

Ok, today I'm going to make a list of Joe Frank's lists.
Avatar 4:03pm Irwin:

The Nichols set was issued in 1997. It's full of tape flaws that could have easily been fixed -- even then.
  4:03pm MONEYBAG$:

This beat falls into the "ill" category
Avatar 4:05pm βrian:

His weight, his pallor, his general decline ...
  4:06pm Listening Out There:

RE Blue Note: That time period was pre-Norah Jones. The label was cash poor for a loooong time 'til they signed her...
Avatar 4:06pm Irwin:

This is one of the most depressing Joe Frank episodes -- but Another Country., Pt. 1, planned for future broadcast, is even more depressing. Joe isn't all absurdity and philosophical frivolity.
  4:06pm lulu:

i dont like joe frank
  4:07pm MONEYBAG$:

Oh god, I have to see Norah Jones open for Neil Young tonight
  4:07pm JOE FRANK:

I don't like lulu
  4:10pm lulu:

  4:11pm lulu:

i like you more now tho!
Avatar 4:11pm cee:

this joe frank thing is making me anxious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm common:

you were correct, irwin
  4:14pm JOE FRANK:

Ok then
Avatar 4:14pm βrian:

Don't dawdle!

ha! @Cee, I was thinking the same thing….or feeling the same thing.

Damn, I'm ready for that martini ...
  4:37pm Listening Out There:

...and that's the news from Lake Woebegone...
  4:38pm Garrison Keillor:

[Ulp. Spoke too soon...]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Garrison Keillor - Good luck with your upcoming retirement. Thanks for your years of entertainment.
  4:47pm phat:

There are times when I don't really like Joe Frank. This story, though. Fantastic.
  4:47pm Janey Complain:

Jeez, Joe, can you leave me out of this?
  4:52pm Anonymous Coward:

damn who is that... that voice sounds familiar...
Avatar 4:53pm Irwin:

The female voice? Doesn't say: www.joefrank.com...
  4:55pm P-90:

She does sound familiar, like someone we know from somewhere else...?
  4:55pm spodiodi:

She sounds like a poor actor.
  4:56pm marc:

That girl can't be human
  4:58pm P-90:

She sounds like a non-actor telling a true story, like in the "telephone monologs" Joe used in his earlier series.
Avatar 5:01pm cee:

heavy. gonna have that on my mind for a while now

- it's superb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Alison Porchnik:

Don't spoil the ending for me, Irwin!
Avatar 5:19pm Irwin:

The ending: They all get FREE tampons!
Avatar 5:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...full stop - period. Hey - you thot it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Sigurður:

Let's get back on track, there is still a lifetime to go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Alison Porchnik:

I said, don't spoil it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Mike East:

just got into a discussion with a coworker who knows someone in the partch ensemble. He said he thinks the MSU eviction had something to do with the University wanting to claim ownership of the instruments. I just sent him a link to your Charles Corey interview...here for anyone interested: wfmu.org...
Avatar 5:41pm Irwin:

That's true -- the U wanted to own, not simply provide housing for, the instrumentarium. But Danlee Mitchell, the lawful heir of Partch's collection, refused to relinquish ownership.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Mike East:

thanks for educatin' me on this stuff Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm efd:

inside sources tell me the session will air starting around 9:30. Thanks for the plug, Irwin!
Avatar 5:50pm Irwin:

The Real Numbers built their own instruments, right EFD?
Avatar 5:51pm Irwin:

Also listeners to EFD's show tonight will get free tampons!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm efd:

actually the Real Numbers build their own tampons.

  6:00pm Listener Robert:

Yay, Irwin!
  6:00pm P-90:

Thanks, as ever, for Joe Frank (even if, yes, depressing), Partch, free tampons, and everything else, Irwin!
