Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/4/09 3:09pm Irwin:

Sucks to be the first commenter
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:09pm BSI:

I am the prosthesis!!!!!!
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:09pm Bad Ronald:

Woo Hoo Boo Hoo!
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:11pm AnAnonymousParty:

These days it just sucks in general
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:11pm Lizardner Dave:

Hey everyone, time to get our own thing that has only a tangential relationship to the show going? So, who wants punch and pie?
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:12pm AnAnonymousParty:

Depends on what's in the punch.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:13pm Parq:

Knock knock
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:14pm AnAnonymousParty:

Parq, switching to a higher octane can stop that knocking.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:16pm Lizardner Dave:

Or you can buy a fuel injector cleaner....at Wal Mart! Easter time, Easter time....
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:16pm still b/p:

Woo hoo's there?
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:16pm Parq:

Actually, it was a badly expressed Curly Howard impression. I just now remembered that most people spell it "Nyuk Nyuk".
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:18pm Lizardner Dave:

Think the response here is aaaahng aaahng aaaahngg...is that spelled right?
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:21pm cribley:

This is great. More Jimmy Mitchell!
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:21pm AnAnonymousParty:

Sounds like Heywood Banks singing 'Mack the Knife' there.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:26pm cribley:

Disregard that request for J Mitchell.. I filled up in the blog.

  Wed. 2/4/09 3:26pm Lupica:

Irwin, I would like to congratulate you on being the pre-eminent Mad Daddies fan of WFMU. I believe you may have qualified for a recognition dinner.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:28pm benny:

spot on selection of new and used reused reformed and original sounds dude! Big up from the UK keep up the good works:)
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:34pm AnAnonymousParty:

What the hell's so funny about Utah?
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:36pm jan:

cows! wow, I just received my new wfmu COW/DOG t shirt. what syncronicity!
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:40pm Fussy:

I'm fairly sure there's an 'h' in synchronicity, Jan. Hope that's helpful.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:40pm AnAnonymousParty:

I remember as a little kid going trick-or-treating and seeing all the dead cows hung on nails on the sides of houses. Folks would decorate them for Christmas.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:41pm jan:

yahh, it looked funny to me, after I typed it out, but there is no spell check on this message board. Thanks for the fussy attention.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:42pm Bad Ronald:

They crucify cows in Utah?
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:44pm Cecile:

I am appealing to the AccuPrayList to answer my plea for some Snakefinger.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:44pm AnAnonymousParty:

You gotta remember it's Utah and not Hoboken where they got radio and Theater and all that fancy big city crap, not much else to do but revolve you life around coes.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:45pm Parq:

Call my agent. I'm changing the name of the movie to "They Crucify Cows in Utah".
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:50pm Cecile:

they have the Jazz and the Sundance Festival...
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:51pm BSI:

Thanks for the SF SORROW -- that's one of the ten best albums of all time, says me.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:52pm Cecile:

says me too.
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:55pm Cow:

sez teh moo!
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:55pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 2/4/09 3:56pm AnAnonymousParty:

No Sundance before refrigeration, no way to keep the wine cool. Wasn't until they started putting the dead cows inside the home that culture came a knockin'.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:01pm Irwin:

R U N C I B L E
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:01pm Jack:

I thought a runcible spoon was like a combination of a spoon and a fork -- ie a spoon with tines at the end.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:02pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

SPORK
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:04pm north guinea hills:

squareface? am i back in '96?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:04pm dan in falls church VA:

well, spork my runcible!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:07pm dan in falls church VA:

hey, maybe it was a typo, and Lear meant to say "rinsable".
That makes sense, right, "rinsable spoon"? i mean, you wouldn't want an *unrinsable* spoon! hey, what does "S.F." in "S.F. Sorrow" stand for, anyway?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Sebastian F Sorrow
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:13pm annie:

pardon me if this has been repeated... i'm not awake..http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/runcible
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I still say SPORK
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:16pm annie:

it's what i thought of when i saw that definition... runcible sounds eccentric.. i prefer that but try using it at wendy's!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:19pm BSI:

I prefer to eat my Sea Kittens with a runcible spoon.

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=99249669
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:19pm Parq:

I agree with DCE; the dictionary definition of "runcible spoon" (qv) inevitably calls to mind what we now call a spork , BUT - a spork is usually plastic and used with fast food, whereas the original piece of silverware had a specific function -- "for serving hors d'oeuvres."
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:21pm AnAnonynousParty:

How about gimme a runcible shizzle fo-zizzle?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:21pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Jimmy Mitchell is genuinely, post-ironically, great.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:28pm jan:

Jimmy Mitchell, I thought you wanted to play more Joni Mitchell.
Request for parking lot!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:31pm Sean Daily:

Aw, BSI, do not eat sea kittens. They're cute and they're furry and they're warm and they purr and they yowl for their food and they can't decide which side of the door they want to be on and they throw up any old place that they want and they shred your furniture and...

On second thought, go ahead. Eat your sea kittens.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:34pm Parq:

LOLseacats - I can haz planktin?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:38pm Sean Daily:

Itteh bitteh seakitteh committeh sez: yes! hooman kin haz planktin.

Being a sea kitten must be hell on Earth: "I don't like water, but I need it to breathe! NYAAARRRRGGGHHH..."
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:43pm AnAnonymousParty:

Wow the drumming in Mi Viejo just leaps outta yer speakers, eh?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:44pm fishmonkeystew:

She Said!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:44pm DJ Kurt:

Human Fly, from Cramps Gravest Hits, please. No bad words
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:44pm dj:

Some new Kind of Kick - maybe their best song
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:44pm ted:

She said it a good one
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:45pm Mac:

Sunglasses After Dark (they look so sharp)
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:45pm fishmonkeystew:

Bikini Girls with Machine Guns, if you don't wanna play a cover!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:45pm ted:

New kind of kick is even better
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:45pm KathyC:

All Women Are Bad - Cramps
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:46pm fishmonkeystew:

ooooh, All Women Are Bad-Good call!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:47pm croll:

or Human Fly by the Horse Flies
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:50pm Sean Daily:

"I Spit In Your Grave" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:51pm Cecile:

did someone from the Cramps pass on?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:52pm Sean Daily:

Or maybe Satanicus Dominus' "A Child's First Festivus".
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:53pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Yes, Ron Asheton. "Loose," anyone?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:54pm Sean Daily:

Nah. I want to hear Hawkwind's "Where Eagles Dare... and Get Shot Down by Beer-Bellied Hunters".
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:54pm Cecile:

aw, naw. Lux! that's sad.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:56pm DJ Keili:

Beastin' The Airwaves! will definitely be playing The Cramps this weekend!
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:56pm Parq:

NME says it's Brian Gregory, not Lux.

http://www.nme.com/news/cramps/5995
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:57pm Sean Daily:

Irwin, if you have it, could you play Cannibal Corpse's cover of "The Sound of Music"?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:57pm Parq:

Lo siento, that's "Bryan".
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:58pm slugluv1313:

Brian Gregory passed away some years ago, cannot seem to find any news about Lux though -- ????
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:58pm Cecile:

oh, Bryan Gregory. He was on a couple of good ones.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:59pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Not Bryan Gregory. Check the article date - that was 2001.
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:59pm Cecile:

OK who is dead from the Cramps?
  Wed. 2/4/09 4:59pm Keili:

And it's OK if you don't enjoy The Cramps Irwin.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:00pm Irwin:

I think Lux faked his death to get airplay.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:01pm Sean Daily:

Yes, it's Songsmith: The Cheap Casio Keyboard for a New Millennium.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:02pm AnANonymousParty:

Hey, that's not Pat Boone!
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:03pm Parq:

Is Songsmith like Mac's Garage Band?
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:07pm Bad Ronald:

songsmith - http://tinyurl.com/7dqslh
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:08pm Sean Daily:

That's okay, Irwin. Give in to the voices, the hideous hideous voices for a while. We understand.

Or, at least, I UNDERSTAND.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:10pm Robert1014:

I can't find anything on the web to corroborate that Lux Interior has died. In fact, his MySpace page shows last logged in "Feb. 04, 2009," which is, uh, TODAY.

I've seen the Cramps live six times and they've always been awesome...a wonderful act. I hope reports of Lux's death are in error.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:12pm Cecile:

ok, this is the first time I've heard "Chocolate Rain".

I'm disappointed. I thought it would be a lot weirder.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:13pm Parq:

There must be some computer-enabled way to have the Chocsmith Rain guy duet with the guy who sings "Montreal Canada Blues".
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:13pm Laura L:

THANK YOU! Verklemmt!
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:15pm Sean Daily:

verklempt (adj.) overcome with emotion; clenched; also written "ferklempt"

  Wed. 2/4/09 5:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

I thought I was dead yesterday. I got handed a piece of paper which I thought was a death certificate. Turned out it was just my W-2. I gotta get new glasses.
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:16pm Lux Inferior:

Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated!
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:17pm Glenn L:

........Death & Taxes...............
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:32pm Richard:

anyone have more information on Cruella De Ville? discogs.org has nothing
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:34pm Cecile:

wiki has some good rough information
  Wed. 2/4/09 5:44pm John L:

  Wed. 2/4/09 5:52pm Jacob:

Can you pick up WFMU in New York? I'm going over there later in the year and would love to hear a terrestial broadcoast of my favourite radio station.
  Fri. 2/13/09 1:20pm steveroo:

hey irwin i had i gotta comment on your broadcasting skills the way you talk over the radio always grabs my attention no matter how hard i'm at work or what the job is.
i forget what it was but the word that is not such a word now you spoke of was brilliant
