Evening, Irene.
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:09pm Dan:

Hi Irene, I've got your broadcast at 30% to drown out the edge on clown pres blah blah. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:09pm Irene Trudel:

It's been awfully quiet tonight-- especially since I just realized I'd somehow accidentally disabled commenting! Hope you're all well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:10pm Irene Trudel:

Hi pantz and Dan. You've got the right idea, Dan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:13pm pantz:

I wonder what the state of my radio is. I havent used one in so long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:13pm Irene Trudel:

As you can see, my old radio isn't doing so well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:13pm TDK60:

Hello, was going to say earlier I caught your drift in the first set! I had no intention of watching TV tonight. So this helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 10:14pm Listening Out There:

Hello! Good program tonight...
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:16pm Bobby:

I was stuck in the no-chat zone. I am with you.
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:16pm Dan:

I just reversed the balance so you drown out the troll in chief.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:16pm glenn:

god. isn't that fat bloviating fuckwad done his spiel yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:16pm JakeGould:

Yeah, Irene’s show has been a nice balm since this State of the Union began.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:17pm fleep:

It's been a terrific distraction so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:18pm JakeGould:

Please be sure to have positive thoughts towards any child writing a current events report this week.

on the plus side, it'll be the only state of the union trump ever delivers.

Just a setup for Colbert

@glenn: Then what’s next? 2 years of Pence followed by another GOP clown?
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:20pm katharsis:

I just figured you were going real old school. Enjoying show thanks.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:21pm glenn:

no idea. that's for you guys to figure out.
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:21pm yep:

Yes... enjoying your show... much better use of my time than listening to the Idiot in Chief

Mr. Thompson is back to remind us of the bittersweetness.

And yes, his guitar too.

Hello Irene! Could not post from portable devices so actually have to sit up to drop a line but I know you appreciate the sacrifice.

They are now chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:28pm WoodsOfNewHampshire:

Irene, thanks for the public service/antidote to ignorance. Spending the night listening here and reading some Jim Harrison, whose dogs had more sense than the bag of hammers at the podium.
  Tue. 1/30/18 10:32pm Dan:

Irene, you"re amazing! Thx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:32pm JakeGould:

He’s also really leaning heavy on using the word “Citizens.” Talk about dog whistling. AND IT’S OVER!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:33pm TDK60:

Irene, I see your old radio had shortwave; were you a listener to that?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:34pm Kamp Climax:

this is the album! last week Irene played heliotrope off this album and it was a stunner and now this.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:35pm glenn:

  Tue. 1/30/18 10:37pm WoodsOfNewHampshire:

I loved that tune-yards song. What she does with melody kind of reminds me of Esperanza Spalding.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:38pm Kamp Climax:

Irene, is the whole album as good as those two selections, cause last week you said you listened to it, but sort of said it was just interesting. The Perrudin album I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:43pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks all for the encouraging words. If I were home, the TV would be tuned to anything but that nonsense. TDK60, yes I did love short wave but was not an avid listener of any one station. I just loved tuning randomly and stumbling across something unusual. Much as I stumbled across that radio. I was about 9 or 10 and literally stumbled across it in a back path behind a furniture store. I presume it was stolen. I hid it in the bushes for a few days until my mother would let me take it home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:45pm Irene Trudel:

Kamp Climax, I just listened through Laura Perrudin's whole album yesterday. It's really wonderful. Wish I'd been able to see her live, opening for Becca Stevens a few weeks ago. Got there too late, so I bought it because Becca was praising her so highly.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:46pm Kamp Climax:

I apologize but Perrudin/Stevens and the David Crosby appearance has turned my world upside down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:46pm TDK60:

Crosby?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:46pm Kamp Climax:

It's like rickie Lee for the first time.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:48pm Kamp Climax:

he was at the stevens/perrudin show, supposedly, and I trust my sources.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:48pm TDK60:

And I see the FM band is tuned to just left of 92; "left of the dial."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:49pm melinda:

Nice radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:50pm TDK60:

Wait, all bands look to have a red line in the same place.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:52pm Kamp Climax:

Ok, from tune-yards until now, this has been a set for the ages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:53pm Irene Trudel:

TDK60 and Kamp Climax, Crosby was at Becca's show but didn't perform.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 10:56pm Rory:

Great show so far, Irene!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 10:59pm carlotis:

more fun than the state of the union by a mile!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:01pm TDK60:

I think 3 of those are Fairport Conventioneers.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:02pm Kamp Climax:

Please do not tell me she is about to play the Fall
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:02pm Kamp Climax:

I am in heaven
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:04pm Rory:

More MARK E. SMITH!!!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:04pm Kamp Climax:

Irene!!!!! Are you serious? That was the tease of all teases. Are you fucking serious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

hello Irene and others
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:11pm Irene Trudel:

Sorry, i'm not playing The Fall tonight. Didn't mean to tease anyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

i thought lock and key was quite Fiona-ish (or- Rose and Apple sound like cousins...)
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:13pm carlotis:

This is GORGEOUS!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:17pm Kamp Climax:

I am kinda stunned right now by the wonderfulness of it all.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:22pm steve from gberg:

beautiful show, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

i had a radio similar to that one when i was around 10? and kept the 4 bands (the 4th one was uhf or something) at the same place because the numbers were mostly worn off and i figured if the fm got moved i'd know where to find my favorite station (wplj?) by the other needles.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:29pm Kamp Climax:

Eno/Byrne wrote an album about Irene's younger life.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:31pm herb.nyc:

We need a marathon to fix Irene's radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

weird, Irene - my friends and i found the one i had too! (i don't remember where...could've been the bushes...)one of my friends claimed it but soon traded it to me for something i had, and i used it for years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

...i forgot all about that thing. (& lots of things)
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:35pm Kamp Climax:

I miss the 70's. Irene's mom: "Irene hon, you need to get out of the house, why don't you go play in the bushes."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

i remember riding with it playing in my bicycle basket
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:37pm Richard_D:

I have an old Worldstar radio. it has 2 TV settings, short wave, FM, AM, AIR/PB/WB setting that I have no idea what it does. I use it to listen to NPR
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:37pm herb.nyc:

I first listened to wfmu on my Technics SA-300(?) receiver, also broked (and since e-cycled)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

yeah my mother used to tell us to get outside unless it was raining. i wonder where parents still do that.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:41pm Richard_D:

it only takes 402 D cell batteries. I haven't changed em in a year with no sign of going dead anytime soon
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

402 seems like a lot of batteries
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:44pm Richard_D:

Oh, I almost forgot it has CB as well as A PA. It only weighs about 202 lbs.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:44pm Kamp Climax:

A guy named richard_d playing with old shortwaves means we actually do have Aphex Twin listening in with us to Irene's show. Hell yes!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:44pm Kamp Climax:

There my point is proven.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:45pm Richard_D:

ok, I might be off 2 or 3 batteries give it take
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

how many horsepower is that radio?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:45pm Kamp Climax:

And all of you wondered how he got all those bleeps and bips in his music.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:47pm listnr 126:

yeay Irene!! Thank you for the broadcast.(music and commentary)
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:47pm Richard_D:

Aphex what?? I only found this station because I watched Sex and Broadcasting on Netflix. I'm listening via the WFMU app on my phone
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:48pm Kamp Climax:

I love your videos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

i always had an idea how he got the zzzzts and toots in his music, but yeah i wondered about the bleeps and bips.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:48pm Kamp Climax:

The one with the kids dancing with weird homemade masks kills me.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:49pm Richard_D:

I don't know how much horse power. the only way I can carry it is to put it in a bucket of water and float it somewhere.

aphex twin. you know, the artificial sweetener.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:51pm Richard_D:

I only use real sugar or honey. plus I'm about as hip as a pet rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/30/18 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

my father can build you a go cart with a trailer for it. you want me to ask?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:52pm Kamp Climax:

We all listen to apex, so we agree your only as hip as a pet rock. That was never a point of contention.
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:53pm Richard_D:

I could use a trailer. then I make it an old school karaoke machine.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 11:53pm Kamp Climax:

Judge I rest my case.

  Tue. 1/30/18 11:56pm Richard_D:

apex must be in of the disk jockies. the only show I listen to is Irene's. I listen on Tuesdays and download the podcast to listen to at work or in the car

i was hoping someone who knew about horticulture would get my rose cousins pun. oh well!
Thank you Irene! take care y'all

-not that i assume anyone cares!)
  Tue. 1/30/18 11:59pm Richard_D:

I tried just listening to the broadcast during the day. A lot of the stuff is way too sophisticated for me. I'm kinda simple. find something I like and ride it til the tires sal off
