cool set by Ira...and hello, you.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

some nut in Utah is all upset that the New Pornographers are playing a free show in her hometown. She says it's a bad example to invite Pornographers to your city.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:12pm Moral Arbiter:

Inviting oil company executives to your city sets a bad example.

Where is "down the street," DCE?
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

at a club in CLE. Actually I thought he was "down the street" but he's playing in downtown CLE. Unfortunately I will be out in the burbs at my bud's birthday party.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:21pm Seattle:

Mr. Benevento is playing in Seattle later next month. Gotta go.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:21pm Duke of Earl Grey:

Why do Ken's listeners get an awesome new comments system tested on them, transforming them into the exalted guinea pigs of tomorrow, while Irwin's listeners are still stuck with the fugly old refresh-o-matic system?

Oh and you've gotta love anybody named Åke. Or not.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:23pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I want to know what judge would issue an injunction against the use of the umlaut.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:24pm Paddy:

Apple invented the word "pad".
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:27pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I am suddenly hearing the sound of an enormous crowd outside my window, along with sirens. I had to push "pause" on Irwin's show to make sure the noise wasn't emanating from East Orange.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Maybe the revolution has begun, Denise?
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:35pm Denise in Washington, DC:

We can only hope.
  Wed. 5/12/10 3:35pm seang:

  Wed. 5/12/10 3:47pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I need a good headmistress.

  Wed. 5/12/10 4:30pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Seriously, Jan?

The folks at PBS have been dropping too much acid.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:40pm Carmichael:

Oh God .... Not more rambling Ray Manzarek remembrances.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:41pm Jan:

The Doors - When you're strange American Masters tonight PBS
Ch 13 in NYC
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:44pm Because I am a doors fan:

When You're Strange, a film about The Doors
About The Film

“The story of The Doors is one of the most compelling in the history of American rock music; three hugely talented musicians and a lead singer whose commitment to artistic freedom was so intense he rocketed them to a success that always hovered on the edge of chaos. As an independent filmmaker this sensibility affected me greatly.”
– Tom DiCillo, director and writer, When You’re Strange

The creative chemistry of four brilliant artists – drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek and singer Jim Morrison – made The Doors one of America’s most iconic and influential, theatrical and mysterious, thrilling and sometime frightening rock bands. Narrated by Johnny Depp, American Masters: When You’re Strange is the first feature documentary about The Doors, premiering nationally Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at 9 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings). The film tells their story using only original footage – much of it previously unseen – shot between their formation in 1965 and Morrison’s death in 1971. “From the outset I decided to use only original footage of this astonishing band,” says Tom DiCillo, director and writer of When You’re Strange. “To me, there is nothing more powerful and riveting that seeing Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Jim Morrison leap into life on the screen.”
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, why not. I can always record South Park.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:48pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Ugh. I'm sick of PBS specials aimed at boomers.

And I say this as a boomer.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I smell a pledge drive.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:54pm still b/p:

It's another chance to play Let's Mock Manzarek as he expounds by the pound!
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:54pm Duke of Earl Grey:

Ugh, you're right, DCE. I just caught a whiff of the stench. Smells like smug potpourri, white wine, the hairballs of tiny yappy dogs, racquetball sweat, and espresso.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:55pm Dominick:

ouch! check your phase scope please
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that phase problem is ALWAYS present on 20k Wimp.
  Wed. 5/12/10 4:58pm Jan:

Yeah, they will be replaying the Doors special throughout the year and years to come. That's what they did with the Mamas and Papas
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:01pm drr:

ugh, Ray Manzarek. It's always surprised me that X survived having that blowhard play on their first album.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:02pm Jan:

david byrne is up on deck for the pbs hagiography
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:02pm Aharon:

Huh. FMU Classic Rock Surprise #772-a Heart song I like. Just when I thought I was safe in my ignorant snobbishness.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:04pm Carmichael:

When will PBS do a bio of Swamp Dogg?
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:04pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I didn't know galleries could sing.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:04pm darue:

Ray Manzarek may be a blowhard in interviews, but I forgive all for his
incredibly great Golden Scarab solo album.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:13pm PMD:

Hi Irwin!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:15pm Irwin:

HDYD, PMD!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:15pm drr:

"Have You Heard This Story: The Life and Times of Swamp Dogg"... I'd pledge.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:16pm fornay:

I'm another boomer embarassed by my generation. Of course PBS would do another annoying rockumentary about another mediocre classic rock band .Jim Morrison;Poet! The most profound thing he did was drown in his own vomit
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:17pm Carmichael:

Man, for that I'd pledge my ass off.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:20pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah, Morrison was sophomoric.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:23pm PMD:

I do well, gracias. I am not underestimate you. I know you are short.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:23pm michael c:

You gotta admit, Touch Me is a great insane song.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:24pm Irwin Chusid:

Regards to the shackled houseboy, PMD.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:24pm drr:

Bad Ron, I kow that's right, cause I loved Morrison and the Doors as a high school sophomore. Their records got worse the older I got.
I should point out, if you don't like the Doors with Morrison, have you heard them WITHOUT him? Here's a taste, courtesy YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTXji28cBP4
(I'd put this up there with the Lou Reed/Pavarotti collaboration.)
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:27pm Duke of Earl Grey:

I usually don't like Dan Bejar's whiny NP songs but this one's good. Still strongly prefer the other folks in NP though.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:28pm coelacanth:

Not a huge doors fan,despite it being an integral part of my youth...I really love the first and last (la woman)albums- & scattered songs between...and Manzarek DOES seem like a blowhard...but the doors would not have existed without him.He was musically innovative( the only one,probably)They WERE revolutionary.and though Morrison seems like an asshole,he also was brilliant-at times...and cool enough to not want to play all Kreiger's crappy songs (though he did seem to relish"touch me"...ugh)...and to say fuck you to Ed Sullivan...and for dying at just the right time...I'll watch this- esp.as i've never seen a doors movie.(in fact,i've never seen a pbs music documentary...so maybe i don't know what sort of sensationalist bullshit i'm in for! )
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:30pm drr:

Clarence Carter's version of the Doors' "Light My Fire" is pretty great. He says "no time to while away the mire" which is just as much of a rhyme reach as the original lyric.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:30pm PMD:

Oh my. I channeled him accidentally!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:30pm coelacanth:

hehe- i forgot to put a (!) after"Dying at just the right time"!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:32pm curious!:

hi irwin. amazing set. who is the background audio as you talk?
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:35pm Irwin:

FRED NEIL!!!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:36pm curious!:

chaching!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:36pm Bad Ronald:

I'm not saying there's no room for sophomoricity.., I am prone to spinning The Soft Parade on my own accord.

Thanks for the link drr!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:36pm darue:

Some days I like the doors some days... not so much, but personally, the best light my fire cover:
Jose Feliciano - Light My Fire
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C45mye89Kgs
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:36pm wally:

jim t morrison nibbled a bit of peyote and turned into a hawk.
i had some and turned into a tufted titmouse.. kinda cozy
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:37pm Laura L:

I was just going to say you should play Fred Neil's recording of this!
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:41pm PMD:

Will you put me on the air if I burp?
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:42pm Zoe's Dad AKA Marq:

Have not rung in here in awhile. Appreciating Irwin's show every week. Sometimes it is so nice to realize that there are people out there like Irwin to do a radio show for us all.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:45pm curious!:

jerry is so bummed.
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:45pm Irwin:

Thanks, Marq. How's Zoe?
  Wed. 5/12/10 5:48pm wally:

  Wed. 5/12/10 5:59pm Daniel Stedman:
