So great to come home and hear Ira. Great job in Phill last week. How about ferryboat Bill?

Hello, loving the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - the Bartholomew long a fave - tho' our cousins the chimps probably share more of our aggro behavior than I thot...the bonobos perhaps the evolved ones in the family (they'd rather schtoop than fight)...& FMU & OOZ are cousins too: after Katrina, FMU streamed them - which is damned impressive FreeForm solidarity. Thx for being here Ira K!

Yup, we'll be crawling again!!! Idiots they are!

Sure, but he could have ruined my Hanukkah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I defy anyone to read 'Hiroshima' by John Hersey about what it was really like (the mere atomic bomb - orders of magnitude smaller than the Hydrogen bomb) - & then tell me ANYTHING could possibly humanly justify them.
...Impressed by anyone who can even decipher Trane that much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm jj.:

I think you're onto something, Mr. the K. Calvin Weston recently admitted that his 1st few years playing with Ornette, he only played the drum parts from Mahavishnu Orchestra songs. pbs.twimg.com...
Avatar 10:15pm geezerette:

UM, but he means well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm melinda:

I think I read Hiroshima for a college course. I don't think I can handle reading it now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Chop Scott:

I once saw Calvin Weston playing with James Blood Ulmer and they actually nailed the kick drum to the floor.
Avatar 10:16pm Pat Byrne:

Ken just called me, this is your time-slot now. Congrats/enjoy!

  10:44pm MikeF:

  10:45pm mark:

  10:45pm mark:

I meant trippy
  Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Ira:

I'm too stupid to figure out the phones. Sorry!
  10:55pm JakeGould:

Ha! Funny to hear this anti-drug ad today. Local grocery just put up this sign of a Red Bull knock-off this week: www.instagram.com...
  10:58pm steve from g-berg:

Avatar 10:58pm Pat Byrne:

Double tap the top flashing phone line on the long black Telos phone switcher until it stops flashing and is a solid red/yellow light.

Then, pod up the PHONE 1 channel on the board.

That flashing call will be on hold on that line and ready for air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Also, there's some kind of switch that needs to be in Mono, right?
Avatar 11:00pm Pat Byrne:

they should all be in mono already
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Uncle Michael:

I feel like such a loser. I don't even know where to get cocaine.

Hello Ira from Virginia. Tried to call and heard you talking but you could not hear me. Thanks for entertaining me while I am working on Christmas Eve.

I just tried calling 1-800-COCAINE and the line was busy. What do I do now?
  11:14pm j db:

keep busy
  11:15pm ike:

That last one reminds me of Fabio.

Errr, I mean, these are the kind of dirty NSFW lady sounds he likes to play sometimes. That's what I meant! AHEM.

I was on with the doctor, try now.
  11:17pm Hoboken Jack:

@TOPT: Everything will be OK. Deep breaths. Call 1-800-SANTACOKE

...I danced @ the Filmore - but I don't like parties anymore - I listen to Kaukonen alone...
  11:22pm Eartha Lime:

Can you play some womyn's music? Beefheart please. zig?
  11:22pm JakeGould:

@Todd-o-Phonic: I just called that 1-800-COCAINE line and it rang, picked up and I was connected to “America’s Hottest Talk Line.” The first option was “Ladies, to talk to some hot guys, press 1 now…”

If I get billed for this mishigas on the first night of Hanukkah there will be heck to pay!
Avatar 11:24pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thanks for the help everyone! Ironically enough, I have a live version of "Kansas City" by Doug Sahm where he sings, "I might take a train, I might take cocaine...."....
  11:38pm Joe stalvey:

What an Xmas Eve gift this show has been. Thank you, Ira, for these tunes and everything else. Happy holidays.
