hmm... what's on the radio today ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Parq:

Looks like a penguin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm AnAnonymousParty:

I actually remember my mom using Spry. Not as digestible as chicken fat, though.
  3:05pm Keith from Oregon:

@Parq: That's on top of the telly.
  3:08pm Laura L:

Crisp and dry with Spry!

Afternoon all! I have an old "American Houswife" cookbook from the '40s, and the secret ingredient to EVERYTHING is shortening. Scoff if you will, but the cookies do NOT fuck around.

Hello Irwin, Bronwyn, Parq, all! I feel old but also in the way so that's good.

@Parq:"Now it's time for the penguin on your television set to explode".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Parq:

Howdy, Jack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Parq:

Once, on college radio, I played that Python track and segued from the explosion into the opening notes of "Montana". Got chided for cutting off the "inspired guess" kicker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Parq:

And in those days, I would have been all over this Chip Wickham track if it had existed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Asheville Jon:

this show is always so nice to mellow out the afternoon. thanks Irwin
  3:24pm Andy:

Irwin, I can always count on your show to introduce me to great music from the past and present. Thank you for doing what you do every week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm AnAnonymousParty:

When you want a meal that's 100% fried, you'll want Spry. Not sure what to do with it on pizza, unless you top it with chicken fried steak maybe.
  3:29pm debt collector:

Love from Burlington VT.
Re: your sponsor rant -Spry- it almost sounded like a Christian Slater impression
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Alison Porchnik:

I think he sounded a little drunk! On bacon grease, perhaps.

Anonymous, do you mean to tell me that you would consider eating pizza that isn't topped with chicken fried steak?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm AnAnonymousParty:

Yeah, but I'm a kinda pizza snob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Carmichael:

Chicken fried pizza! Heya Irwin and nearly every one of you.
Avatar 3:48pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@AAP-Thin crust with italian sausage and mushrooms (mushrooms MUST BE fresh, NOT canned.) But I went gluten free. What to do?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm fleep:

When I invite a threesome for dinner, I always serve Spry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm AnAnonymousParty:

Oh, I know, at the Kimmswick Apple Butter festival there was a booth where they'd take a slice of pizza, dip in batter, deep fry it and serve it on a stick. I do't know for a fact that they used Spry, but if they were trying to make a quality product they must have been.
Avatar 3:49pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

Panda riot reminds me of Chimera (on Grass records) or Coctuau Twins a bit. And 80's music in general. Clicky star!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm AnAnonymousParty:

I drive from St. Charles MO to Edwardsville IL for this: www.peelpizza.com...
After one of their wild mushroom pizzas I want to just move in and live in their basement. And I don't even know if they have a basement.
Avatar 3:54pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

My wife knows how to pick mushrooms...in Poland.
Avatar 3:55pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Irwin-do you have any 78rpm records from the early 20's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Carmichael:

Maple Bourbon Pork pizza ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Irwin:

I have one, Neil. Just one. It's in a big box, tucked away for post-apocalypse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm AnAnonymousParty:

I get giant puffball mushrooms growing in my yard the size of cantaloupes, On slice will cover most of a pizza when I make pizza at home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm fleep:

Bob's Red Mill has gluten free baking flour if you feel like DIY. WNPA
Avatar 3:59pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Irwin-is it collectible? May I ask what it is? I just got Boardwalk Empire soundtrack from the library, and its pretty awesome. This is insipiring my interest in 20's music. Its kinda neat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Irwin:

The title has been redacted, Neil.

@W-Neil - perhaps your wife is familiar with the mycologist Gary Lincoff, who recently passed away:

@Bronwyn - what records has Joel dispensed to you for your next guest show (which we all look forward to)?
  4:22pm Joel:

Irwin, if you know what's good for you you'll play that Hold Steady tune I told you to play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Irwin:

I'm not af-af-af-af-af-afraid of YOU, J-j-j-j-j-j-joel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Tommy in Neversink:

I can't hold steady when I hear The Hold Steady
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm AnAnonymousParty:

I've heard Joel can't backup his threats, that the last guy that crossed him found a picture of an old sway-backed horse in his bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Carmichael:

Thanks, Joel.

Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell
Where the banshees live and they do live well
Stonehenge! Where a man's a man
And the children dance to the Pipes of Pan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Carmichael:

"We've go' a buncha midgets kickin' round Stonehenge!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Parq:

I for one don't think the problem was that "the band was a little off." I think the problem was that there was a Stonehenge monument on stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Irwin:

Guitarist hates solo, insists he was forced to play it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Colosseum! Memories of early 70s WPLJ. Good work, young lad!
  4:39pm Third World Man:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm AnAnonymousParty:

A guitarist that hates solos? Now that's funny.
  4:40pm Third World Man:

What made you think of that,3rd World?

  4:43pm djsheilab:

I completely forgot about this Madder Rose song. It’s as wonderful as I remember! Thanks Irwin.
  4:44pm Third World Man:

madder rose kinda reminds me of the primitives without the fuzz box. @kevin they ripped my flesh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Rob (Jerzcity):

@Weird Time Signatures - didn't' your name used to be Abby something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Asheville Jon:

ha ha. i scoff!
Avatar 4:47pm Weird Time Signature:

That name is kind of light in the loafers
  4:49pm Keith from Oregon:

Isn't this getting a little meta? Not that there's anything WRONG with that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm fleep:

I put Taxidermy Frogs Copulating into Google Images and scrolled down to find Scott William's show logo. Huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Parq:

Fleep, I hesitate to ask, but what else came up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm fleep:

First image is the album cover, then actual frogs copulating, then a chart of various frog sex positions (including "head straddle") and an X-rated platypus video.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Rob (Jerzcity):

Abby-something....Abby Normal?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Just think what Cambridge Analytics could do with that, Fleep?
  5:04pm Tom:

Always dig great left hand snare work.
  5:04pm Third World Man:

Cambridge is just a patsy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Parq:

Fleep. I'd look at that myself, but it would all be blocked on my work puter.
