Listener comments!

  Wed. 12/15/10 3:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

dude....behind you...
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:03pm The Philosopher:

Now, what is the ethical thing to do when faced with such a scene. Shoot, or shout?
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:04pm The Philosopher:

By shooting I mean the camera, of course.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

He's giving Army a bad name with this display of stupidity...wait, does the mama bear have a Navy sweater on?...
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Philosopher: Always err on the side of humor.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Marc Riley is pretty good. But the British accent is making me crave Professor Elemental.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

said Professor is taking his tea nowabouts
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:12pm annie:

wow, had to come on and just say.. wow.. transistor six!
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Craving satisfied!
He's back from tea!
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice music to prepare for winter.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:26pm PMD:

If you guys wouldn't lick the microphones, you all wouldn't share so many germs.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Had no idea Geoffrey was a MONKEY butler--he sure can wail on them skins for a monkey!

@Irwin: Have you convinced the good Prof. to come on the show when he's in NJ?
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:33pm Irwin:

Yes. He didn't need much convincing. Schedule permitting.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

YESSSSS! SPLENDID!!!! (I think he was trying to get you to ask him from the get-go, why else would he plan a trip to Jersey?)

After this he can be named Lord Gentleman Rhymer of the House of Lords.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

now you speaka ma lanaguage
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Metro Mama! I think the phrase "Primitive Swagger" comes from this song. I'm a such an Amanda geek!
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:48pm Denise in DC:

DCE, but did he give you a Vegemite sandwich?
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:50pm seang:

sheila e. oh yeah
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:50pm Amandental:

I just know that one of these days one of Irwin's listeners is going to do a Prof Elemental/Amanda mashup.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:50pm Denise in DC:

Sorry, that should have been "did he smile and give you a Vegemite sandwich?"
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:52pm Denise in DC:

Hey, speaking of incorrect music: I'm going to see John Waters do his live Xmas show tomorrow night.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Denise: Wow, does he do one every year? Is in DC, or his native Baltimore?
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:53pm postmanpaul:

Evening all. Great news about Prof Elemental popping in Urwin, what a scoop!
Caught him here in Brighton a few weeks back at a very intimate venue and he was superlative. Mentioned that you were exposing him, he smiled.
Nice to hear Neil Hannon featured too, Urwin.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: I don't know about no Jews on paper money--Ulysses Grant looks like he could be part Jewish.

And WFMU has the CAJONES for so much more than seguing into Amanda! In fact that is no longer courageous, but expected.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:57pm Denise in DC:

Matt, this show is at the Birchmere (outside of DC, for you non-locals). I understand that he does a very few shows every year -- this year he's doing five, none of which are in Charm City. http://www.dreamlandnews.com/news/index.shtml
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:57pm PMD:

Ack, this song is making me dizzy! (wearing headphones)
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

There is always something good at the Birchmere, Denise! I've been there many times.
  Wed. 12/15/10 3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: "Beehive State"? That's Utah...this Money Bee is one crazy artist! Part rapper, part parody, part delusional...
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:01pm Aharon:

I sort of feel like I could listen to Money Bee for 24 hours at a time (or maybe already am?).
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:02pm PMD:

@Matt, yes, honey bee. Whew.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:05pm glenn:

where's the picture from?
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:07pm glenn:

i'm assuming it's not from "how not to piss off mama bear for dummies".
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:07pm PMD:

@glenn... searched online and just found a site that voted on whether it was photoshopped or not.

And btw, ran across this on Wikipedia:
Bears are almost always gay or bisexual men, although increasingly transgender men (transmen) and those who shun labels for gender and sexuality are also included within bear communities.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:09pm PMD:

Oh, Irwin, for Christmas you could give me a segue from Alice in Chains to Miley Cyrus.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Alice in...really...
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:14pm glenn:

i guess a better question would have been where can i find this picture?
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:16pm PMD:

@glenn - google man holding bear cub
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:17pm glenn:

otay.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:19pm aaron in chicago:

wish i could still stay up and listen to ken nordine on morning mornings
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:24pm Wikipedia:

Ken Nordine turned 90 April 13th of this year.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:24pm If you're gonna be dumb...:

  Wed. 12/15/10 4:25pm postmanpaul:

Enjoying the show very much while designing our Christmas card, Irwin. Seriouse apols for cocking-up spelling your name incorrectly.....dyslexia in action.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:26pm Robert:

Funny, but ISTR his having billed himself briefly as Val Nordine. Probably my bad hearing and a worse radio.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:27pm Bill:

The comments are also prerecorded.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:27pm PMD:

You are Irwin until 6:00. But then what do you become?
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:31pm Eminence Front:

Join the club Irwin, I'm also a put on.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:40pm Matt from Springfield:

I just noticed how much of today's show features music from the British Isles.
  Wed. 12/15/10 4:43pm glenn:

ya know, looking back on it, cream was pretty great, even if white room and sunshine blah blah are WAY overplayed.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:02pm Mama Grizzly:

Put Bristol down, you Lower-48 pussyboy.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:04pm PMD:

Iris!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:05pm Optician:

Pupil!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:07pm Betty:

White!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:07pm Optician:

I don't see.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:12pm Troublemaker:

Does the Old Codger cotton to Irwin stealing his tuneage?
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Okeh! The original Mississippi John Hurt recordings were on the Okeh label. I'm impressed as well with Vaughn De Leath.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:13pm Matt from Springfield:

GO LAD-EH! You're no bummer, CHILD!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:14pm Matt:

DONT MESS WITH THE POWER CHILD!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:15pm glenn:

amanda sorta sounds like an angry grizzly.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:16pm PMD:

nasty garbage, smells like crap. what a bummer!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:16pm Matt:

Mom says take it out, WHAT A BUMMER
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:16pm dlacey:

please stop that!!!!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:17pm PMD:

@THanks Betty. I didn't get Optician's joke. caffeine needed.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:17pm glenn:

i still prefer jenny lewis.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:18pm France:

We prefer Jerry Lewis
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:21pm irwin's penis:

sex change operation? no one told me.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:22pm Surgeon:

Of course not, you little dick.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:23pm Robert:

I was afraid he was going to say, "Kenny G." And he said, "Kenny G."
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:24pm Irwin:

I'm sorry. I'm so very sorry.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:27pm Fill-In Monitor:

The show should have a slightly different feel, given that Kenny G is unfamiliar with such concepts as tune, melody, or even music, period.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:29pm zombie:

dear stoners. please stop with the drugs already. eating your brains is affecting my liver. and giving me the munchies, ironically enough.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

The Bats--I remembered they were Flying Nun!
Kiwi Rock lives on at this station!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:34pm Stephen Colbert's Xmas Special:

@zombie:
Willie Nelson! What are you doing here?
>>Stephen, I'm SO high--YOU'RE hallucinating!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:36pm AnAnonymousParty:

This is a cool treatment of Powerhouse.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:36pm Termite Terrace Boys:

Where's Bugs Bunny?
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:37pm Robert:

Interesting. It conjures up the image of a pneumatic or possibly steam powerhouse, rather than one of gears, etc. as the usual instrumentation does.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:41pm zombie:

also ironically, when i was not undead i was a straight edge vegan. now i can't stand the sight of tofurkey. or kale.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Digging this NP!
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:43pm Sparks:

Play us! We have some great music, and we need the royalties, what with christmas and all that.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:51pm vegan zombie:

you just go after the vegans and eat whatever is in their entrails full of veggies. and you can eat their brains too because they are not meaty.
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:53pm vegan zombie:

vegetable brains are ok to eat if you are a vegan zombie
  Wed. 12/15/10 5:55pm BIFF:
