Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/13/11 3:00pm ...:

Hi Irwin!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:02pm Carmichael:

OK, here we go.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Irwin and all!

Has Dave King ever heard bpNichol's pieces? bpNichol can say "poem" in "concrete".
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:15pm Listening Out There:

Sounds like Dave King's band should be called Happy Trucking...
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:17pm Cognitive Dissonance:

Whaddaya mean I failed?! I didn't fail! In fact failure doesn't exist! I don't even exist!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I CAN'T BREATHE
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Is everyone hiding out there today? Come on out, I'll be around today, but in and out. So someone needs to cover for me here!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Calm down, I can help. Are you 1) underwater or 2) in a vacuum? If you answered no to both of those, then you're already halfway to recovery.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:19pm Ike:

The term "Mazeway Re-Synthesis" sounds cult-a-licious, even if it's actually not.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

cute singers help restore normal breathing
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:23pm jan:

Lost and Found- very Cute-oh. suki-desu
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:24pm Ike:

And if you ARE in a vacuum, don't worry. Just use your 11G brainlink modem to order the Mazeway Re-Synthesis Corporation's medical nanobots. Many of them are in a dormant state throughout the universe's areas of vacuum, waiting for your order. They only need a few milliseconds to weave you a protective hyperbaric foam chamber. Put it on your DisneyDiscoverNewsCorp card. Just four installments of 860000 Venusian credits. Money back guarantee!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

The Right Trousers are the Fight Trousers!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: Amazing world we live in! Or, did you take another job, at a nanobot corporation in 2161?
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I got my ears fixed and things are sounding bright
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Sweet! To the 17th power!
The sounds are so bright, you gotta wear......
synesthesia?
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:34pm Ike:

@MfS: Oops, must've been a rip in the fabric of time, space, and all that jazz. Let's blame Sun Ra.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:36pm Carmichael:

Yes because, after all, space IS the place.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:38pm fleep:

Uh, oh -- it's another nasty rip in the fabric of spacetime ,,, and you have to teleport the kids to Alpha Centauri for their fnord lessons! What to do? Just use MegaMendit! Takes just seconds, blends with any spacetime fabric. Your neighbors the black hole leaves behind will love you for it!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:38pm Peteski:

This is my favorite show of all time
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:38pm Listener Bill:

"my favorite _ of all time" is one of my favorite phrases of all time ... and space.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

That Michael Shelley is bogarting all the special guests around here! Swamp Dogg from Joe McG, Fountains of Wayne from Irwin...maybe you should put him to work bogarting guests from other STATIONS!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@Peteski: Hey, you're not missing anything! Did you at least miss the theme today? Or are you missing the show AFTER 5?
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

OMFG!! Wizz-O doing Ebony And Ivory!!
Score! "Play" that solo, Chris!
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

And does he have the radio on another song, or is that you playing something over this, Irwin?
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:45pm jan:

We can only hope that you will play Chris Palestis and Alexander Berger in lieu of Amanda. They are just as melifluous.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:45pm still b/p:

That sounded like Robert Reich having a go at the song.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:56pm Marmalade Kitty:

Irwin, what is the name of the music you play often (with pause) during or before DJ speaks? I think of it as "the lift " elevator track..
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:56pm Uncle Floyd:

Sounds familiar.
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:58pm Geneticist:

Are we sure that's *human* DNA?
  Wed. 7/13/11 3:59pm The Real Tony Bennett (DNA):

Oy!
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi MK!
Do you mean the "Carmen Don't Worry" piano piece? That was by longtime WFMU collaborator R. Stevie Moore.
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:02pm Marmalade Kitty:

thanks matt! that sounds like the one
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:02pm yayson:

i always thought it was 'occidental slip on an oriental rug' till i saw the playlist
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:04pm Separated at Birth?:

"Carmen Don't Worry" -- R. Stevie Moore
"Don't You Worry Bout a Thing" Stevie Wonder
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:06pm Marmalade Kitty:

Jupiter is the craziest MFing place, I tell ya!
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:07pm Debbie D:

Well, this is pretty great so far.
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yayson, that's actually a better title!
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:13pm Robert:

That's my boy, Iwrin; you've done it again.
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:17pm ScottC:

hate to get political but this is a great opportunity to GET MURDOCH.
Call your senators and house member and inform them that News Corp is in violation of this law : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_Corrupt_Practices_Act
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:19pm Marmalade Kitty:

well said ScottC! were you reminded by the Robert Maxwell track

This is so good, Irwin!!
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:23pm hamburger / london:

I'm too afraid they may have h4xx3d my phone and reveal all my escapades and hijinx :-/ like the -alleged- incident involving a hot dog and some jalapeno sauce..
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:24pm ScottC:

that sounds HOT!
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:27pm Marmalade Kitty:

Top top TOP!!!
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:29pm bruceleh:

Question for the Good Doctor:
Is there anyone who can influence WKCR or Phil Schaap to make available online the amazing '87 interview with Sun Ra?
I know I heard it rebroadcast on WKCR circa '92, so it's got to be recorded somewhere.
I'd even pay $$$ for it (and all the rest of the Schaap interviews).
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:30pm Debbie D:

Can't wait for Sunday.
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:34pm Ike:

(I'm not sure anybody can make Phil Schaap do anything. Especially not to shut up about what Charlie Parker ate for breakfast that morning and play some damn music.)
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:34pm Marmalade Kitty:

Sunra was doing the do before people realised, they may have tried to bump him had they realised
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:38pm Carmichael:

My request would be Reflections in Blue (the song).
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:38pm wikipediac:

Hammond Solovox:

  Wed. 7/13/11 4:39pm Handsome Harry:

Awesome show. Great discussion.
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:42pm Matt from Springfield:

I just came back in the last 5, but I agree with Harry: awesome show and music selections, I'm going back to catch the parts I missed.
  Wed. 7/13/11 4:50pm Dave B:

  Wed. 7/13/11 5:10pm the magic city:

there were only 20 or 30 people at sun ra's funeral and he is buried in a nondescript grave not far from & similar to paul "bear" bryants.
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:15pm mark:

What was the last year Michael played with Sun Ra?
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:19pm fred:

It's weird to hear such a familiar voice as a guest. Weird in a good way, as usual with this station.
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:28pm miketp:

  Wed. 7/13/11 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Space Poetry!
I would form my own Arkestra just to speak this kind of stuff!
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:30pm joine:

quite enjoying the show - esp. happy to hear the "smoke-eyes" and untitled key-work.
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:31pm Debbie D:

http://www.nortonrecords.com/kicksbooks/sunra.php
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:32pm fred:

@miketp: he at least did fill-ins more recently. The good doctor has nursed me from more than a few hangovers, and I haven't listened to the station for that long.
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:34pm Marmalade Kitty:

maybe people thought he was just mad!
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:35pm Marmalade Kitty:

cool
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:38pm ZB:

elrarecords.com
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Paper tape--that's practically like punch cards in a strip of Saran Wrap!
  Wed. 7/13/11 5:46pm miketp:

  Wed. 7/13/11 5:48pm mark:

Thanks. Caught Sun Ra back in '86 so I would've missed Michael.

  Wed. 7/13/11 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Come back and we'll have some space chili! :)
  Wed. 7/13/11 6:00pm Marmalade Kitty:

quite correct to split hairs!
  Wed. 7/13/11 8:53pm JT:

Great show, Kenny G!
Seriously it was good.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:20pm Sean:

Listening on the archives....such a great show. The Arkestra keeps flying!
  Sat. 7/16/11 3:25am bennett:

Wonderful interview, fantastic music. And I remember Hambone, though I think I heard it on Captain Kangaroo (which could be wrong). But so much good stuff here, thank the stars for WFMU (and Sonny and Michael).
