Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm The Oscar:

Happy marathonning! I mentioned this last time this was played, but having gotten into vinyl as a teen in the '90s, every single word of this song is true.
Avatar 3:17pm Bas NL:

@Chi Bill.. I guess i could.. Would be great to be able to flush ransomware..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm The Oscar:

Also, having been a record store clerk in the 2010s, that last verse is equally true.
  3:18pm P20:

I'm going to pledge early. Because I know how trying the marathon process is for Irwin.
Avatar 3:19pm Roberto:

Props for the non-binary inclusion, Irwin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Ike:

Irwin’s not gotten himself paired w/a lady? This must be a first.

Irwin is, by virtue of his longevity at the station, the boss of everyone, including Ken. Except Stan. Nobody is the boss of Stan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Handy Haversack:

@The Oscar, as in "uber alles" or as in "heard in strangers' cars"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Phillippe Bastille:

I really like the Julia Jacklin. After listening to the record, though, I've found she really doesn't like being touched.
  3:28pm g:

What the autism is she singing about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Carmichael:

I took "uber" to mean the kind of songs they perform on American Idol.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm The Oscar:

@Handy Strangers' cars-- there are a number of songs I've only ever heard when I'm too lazy to wait for the bus, which I'm fairly certain are among the most popular songs in the world.

Ever have one of those days when you needed to take a break from social media and didn’t?

Hello, I'm David, and I'm a hopeless FMU addict. I've been off it for almost 24 hours, and am now relapsing with bad, bad cravings. @Handy @Carmichael @Phillippe B @Mr Pumpy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Handy Haversack:

David! You were missed! There was a whole thing about fannies and gravedigger's biscuits on Mary's show! You'd have loved it. Definitely time to quit your job. You can't afford to miss this stuff.
Avatar 3:50pm βrian:

Was Fanny Ardant among them??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Carmichael:

Thanks, Handy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm David (in London):

@Handy - I tell you how bad it was: I gave serious consideration to slipping my iPod into my pocket, connecting to the guest Wi-Fi and sneaking out to the toilet. It was a joke yesterday but a cruel reality today.
  3:51pm queems:

oh this one’s a jam

Call 1-800-989-9368 to pledge! $20 or more to get into the prize drawings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Handy Haversack:

There was some speculation that that very scene might be playing out, @David. Don't worry. We left a yellow and purple light on for you.

Also: Mary and Nick thanked you by name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Mark Hurst:

Or you can use the "Internet," whatever that is, to pledge here: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Mark Hurst:

@David glad you're back with us
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm The Oscar:

@David I don't know how I'd manage-- if my office ever cut off WFMU access I honestly might quit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm David (in London):

@Handy - Ha, ha, that's good to know. The Crew cares. And I will have to listen to the show on catch-up. Mary has been very supportive of our recent album in terms of airplay and I am so shallow and self-centred that I directed pledge her way as a thank you.
Avatar 3:57pm βrian:

Someone ought to make an Adverb Pledge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm David (in London):

@The Oscar - I was out with a client, locked in a room all day. I figured that they probably wouldn't take kindly to having Ken's Show on in the corner... It was very bad for my well-being though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Carmichael:

Yes Brian, quickly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm The Oscar:

@David Ah, I feel you-- I sometimes wonder what my coworkers would think if they knew what I was hearing at any given moment...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Handy Haversack:

I've had to smash "speaker mute" several times today. For some reason it was Ask Handy About the Grammar Day all over the office.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Handy Haversack:

Emotional roller coaster for Hoboken Jack there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm David (in London):

@The Oscar - Headphones are one's friend. Particularly when Ken is playing songs where every chord is turned into a 7th and so on.
Avatar 4:08pm Listening Out There:

I thought Michael Bloomberg should have won "Superette" as a consolation prize...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm David (in London):

@Handy - "Should I have a semi-colon here?"

THIS IS A GOOD TUNE

DIL you made it!
Avatar 4:09pm Irwin:

Michael Bloomberg, President of American Samoa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Handy Haversack:

@David, you joke, but that's kind of what the day was like!

(semicolon)
Avatar 4:10pm βrian:

Did Bloomberg win American Samoa?
Avatar 4:10pm Snoochienucci:

@Irwin at least he won something right? Also, dont confuse Biden, he may actually think hes President of American Samoa
  4:11pm brainiac:

@βrian: It was his lovely parting gift
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm The Oscar:

I'm seeing US Girls in a couple of months, and I'm curious to see if the turnout matches the enthusiasm on WFMU, where she's essentially Beyonce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Handy @David when Reagan had part of his colon removed he was left with a semicolon. They had an editor standing by during the surgery
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Handy Haversack:

I have a box of American (Girl Scout cookie) Samoa(s) in my bag *right now*. So if it's all the same to the political process, I'm taking the win on this one.
Avatar 4:12pm Hoboken Jack:

Am now devoting my life to following Chris Lightcap around, Deadhead-style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm David (in London):

@Snoochie - Better late and never never! How's yourself?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Handy Haversack:

@Phillippe: A period joke!
Avatar 4:14pm Snoochienucci:

@DIL ehhh usual work day lol, about to get pulled into a meeting myself! no WFMU!!!!! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Handy My kids think of Reagan as "that guy they named the airport after". They are all in their 20s...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm The Oscar:

There was a great book about Peter Ivers that came out a few years ago. I was amazed I'd never heard of him before-- he was pretty much the conduit between several of my favorite worlds ('70s punk, early National Lampoon, David Lynch...).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Mark Hurst:

@Jack, worldwide #1 fan of Chris Lightcap - and deprived of the album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm David (in London):

@Handy @The Oscar - I watched Reagan's last film, 'The Killers' not that long ago (Don Siegel at the directorial helm), and he was excellent.
  4:21pm Marc15:

Is anyone calling 800-989-WFMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Handy Haversack:

Sure, when he had a colon, there was no question (mark).
  4:21pm berbo:

@Oscar - thanks for the info. Turn out my public library has that book:

In heaven everything is fine :the unsolved life of Peter Ivers and the lost history of New wave theatre

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm David (in London):

Armand Schaubroeck's last album 'Ratf.....' Great title.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm The Oscar:

Ivers was also the voice (and co-songwriter) of the Lady in the Radiator in Eraserhead!
  4:27pm Laura L:

The new calendar won't have quite such icky pictures (wonderful as they are) as the 2020, we promise--2021 will be purely delightful!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm The Oscar:

@Irwin Oooh, good to know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Handy Haversack:

OK, everyone. I am taking myself back under and over various bits of the estuary. Keep that pledge-tastic argosy afloat!

Ooo, love this song.

Hope to catch the end of the show from an even longer island.
Avatar 4:43pm Irwin:

"Psych Ward" is another WFMU "hit." Figures.

STIMPY IS NOT A CAT. NO! No no no! UNACCEPTABLE!

@spodiodi thanks for posting the link. It was a fun interview - Joe was live in-studio
  5:33pm Listener Robert:

Just noticed: Is $4,292 a dollar for every show Irwin's done on WFMU? Or every hour? Or every year the Old Codger's been alive?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Mark Hurst:

@spodiodi thx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Handy Haversack:

Heh, @spodiodi, making a virtue out of a lack of counter space is another Haversackian move!

@spodiodi. That ‘sometime’ has now come. Tell us about your boycotts.

This is the best Beach Boys track of all time! For me at least. Unfinished but heavenly (as is the case with SMiLE! slightly earlier)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Ike:

[New Ark] is correct.
  5:49pm PJ:

Mark is correct, NewArk (not Newerk) is the correct pronunciation.
  5:49pm David in London:

@Handy, is your new / old innovation the Heavyphone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm spodiodi:

David, i guess i'll have to give them some thought to make them interesting, actually. (mostly it's just my being overly-sensitive, probably.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Mark Hurst:

Thanks, Ike & PJ.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Handy Haversack:

I have found a home -- it turns out that when all the DJs were saying listen online, one actually can. Radio signal here can be dodgy. And once I started listening online, suddenly all the rest just flowed out of that. Because I also really wanted to be able to thank the DJs.

Also: I'm chatty. And with no cell phone, I don't have texting or social media to use as an outlet!

So WFMU gets all of me. Sorry, all.
Avatar 5:51pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:44 Irwin: but an important part of Can't Wait Too Long is the riff that was already put to good use during SMiLE: at least the end of Wind Chimes comes to mind - the very same musical motif there. Brian Wilson's self-recycling was rather creative.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Mark Hurst:

@Handy, thanks - we're happy you're here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Handy Haversack:

That means a lot, Mark Hurst. It really does. It's been a renaissance for me in many ways.

Though as Kate would point out, the LAST thing I need is more hobbies ...
  5:55pm Reno D:

He’s Something!! Thx, Irwin!
  5:55pm David in London:

@Handy, social media’s loss is our gain, and I for one am very happy about that.

  5:57pm David in London:

@spodiodi, ha ha. They don’t have to be epic to be interesting. House Rule #2 here is ‘No Whole Earth peanut butter’, so I appreciate the value of the small scale boycott.

  5:59pm David in London:

Handy, splendid. Let’s ‘take this offline’ as we say at high powered NFFFF meetings.
  6:12pm Daybreak: The Marathon Man:

Good news everyone there is still a chance to protect Station Manager Ken by donating enough to get him to drink his own urine.

It is the only way to protect him from the coronavirus now as he gave away his hazmat suit this morning.
