Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:08pm rrg:

Ken exaggerates only a little. The list he refers to mentions "Media (TV/Radio") as No. 3.

Also, in the case of WFMU, in only a few cases can it really be termed a "profession".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:08pm rrg:

G, No worries, it's more fun to make fun of Irwin in real-time together right in front of him, anyhow. I found his Airwave Idols card and was going to use that for this week's fodder.

what's a "rack on tour"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:28pm Andrew Waterloo:

G, it's one those french words that adults start using when the kids are around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:29pm rrg:

I can't remember the last time I heard a cover song that had such a COMPLETELY different feel from the original.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 3:31pm G:

did he say "beware the pennies on your eyes"???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:32pm rrg:

I blinked and missed that. But it wouldn't surprise me.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 3:32pm Droll:

From the back Irwin's card:
Day Job: "Tedious ideologue with a hustle."
First song played on radio: Lee Michaels, "Hello"
Personal Heroes: Jean Shepherd, Lou D'Antonio, Joe Frank, The Dirty Duck.
Record playing when virginity lost: Will advise, if and when.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 3:33pm Dr. Goot:

I believe the correct lyric is "Declare the pennies on your eyes."
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 3:37pm G:

Right, goot. I think he was working by ear off the record and mondegreened himself. Maybe he never declared anything on his taxes, got zinged by The Leviathan, and that's why he did that cover :)

a downer? YOU JEST.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:49pm rrg:

I'm a little cranky about this one. I prefer the original Cole Porter recording, just him singing and playing the piano. This feels too revisionist to me. Though I like Vince Giordano in other contexts.
  Wed. 11/20/13 3:49pm Listening Out There:

hmm. this vince giordano is contemporary music, with vintage cole porter singing on top? is that it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:50pm rrg:

That's right, LOT. The original Cole Porter recording is also available.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 3:50pm Irwin:

RRG: No vintage recordings were harmed in the making of this contemporary mix.
  Wed. 11/20/13 3:51pm as:

what recent (?) movie had that song (anything goes) in it? reminds me if something
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 3:51pm rrg:

Yes, it's true. The remake doesn't delete the original. "But still."
  Wed. 11/20/13 3:52pm Webhamster Henry:

It did sound like Cole Porter visits A Prairie Home Companion.

Artwork on that card by guest SPORT MURPHY.
  Wed. 11/20/13 3:58pm Listening Out There:

@Droll: Worth noting that the avatar has a misspelling. Make it "Airwave Idle" instead.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 3:59pm G:

@Droll, On closer examination, I think the card is Irwin saying he is not a dirty hippy, he's a clean hippy, or maybe a terminally ironic hippy.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 4:00pm Droll:

G, Exactly: He's a hippy.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 4:01pm Guido (Cologne):

Just my ten cents to the Cole Porter CD:
The cover of the CD claims something like "it's authentic as the compsoer wanted it to sound like". And the CD is anything but this.

There are theese remixes (which is an intersting exeriment, nothing to say against) and all those jazz-versions which are nice. But the content of the CD is nothing what the cover claims for. It could be really annoying if it wasn't a cheapo anyway. I actually purchased it in order to get something authentic. Fortunately the were still copies from the Naxos Label circulating.

Less Joe Frank! More bickering old married couple!

that guy sounded like Archie Bunker reincarnated
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 4:26pm Droll:

Peteski, I know where they're headed, I wonder about how far it will get. A notable difference between happy and sad endings is a happy ending can't always be made happier, but you can always make a sad ending sadder.

Proof: Joe Frank. Q.E.D.

Monsanto used to give my dad albums when he was an automotive engineer in Michigan in the 60s. They were anthologies, though, with ads just on the cover and liner notes. One of them was the first place I ever heard big band music.

I'd listened to/enjoyed the Fresh Air interview on this. I think there was news afterward that the singer and arranger for "My Bathroom is a Private Kind of Place" had been contacted...? Would appreciate any word on that...

  Wed. 11/20/13 4:55pm Robert:

Once in a while one of the funny ones escapes to a gen'l audience. 50 yrs. ago someone did an in-house parody of a Calgon Bubble Bath TV commercial (the original, not the parody, is now online) using the same sound track but substituting the adult male brand mgr. for the little girl. Somehow that got on TV, and reappeared due to popular demand on "Tonight".

it's not fair only the dj's know how long this is gonna go on.

This song is from Keds' 1971 meeting. ***1971.*** It's like the Beatles and the Stones and Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan and James Brown never happened.

G, I don't think so, someone recently left a comment on a YT video about how the ad is still running.

Why didn't the songwriter leave space for breathing? And the serial gear shifting -- there is no bottom...

i wanna hear step right up by tom waits now.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:42pm Droll:

Correction, this song is from the 1971-75 meeting. It's that long.

I suppose this is fate. I made my kids sit through Jesus Christ Superstar on Saturday afternoon.

So I guess I wasn't the only one who heard "penis boot."

No, you weren't, Roberto.

I bet they're doing the Charleston while singing this.

Speaking of cheesy, just saw a link to George Jones's just-finished cemetery monument:

I produced this type of stuff for big corporations in the 80's, but by then they wanted things to sound like Kenny Rogers and Bruce Springsteen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 5:48pm dale:

g - i'm horrified, yet i expect nothing less.
  Wed. 11/20/13 5:49pm Robert:

Damn, listening to that Coke show made me want to do what I kept threatening that we friends that gathered at Cedar Tavern do: put on a musical show. Partly it was because Nadine actually had such entertainment aspirations long ago. And we never did, and now half of us are dead.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:49pm Sean D. Daily:

Round of applause for Steve Young and Sport Murphy for rounding this material up, everyone, and for letting us have our ironic fun at their expense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 5:51pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks all for a very entertaining show.
  Wed. 11/20/13 5:51pm Robert:

Yay for more free entertainment!

silicone is pretty amazing, it can be as hard as a bowling ball....as squishy as some caulky stuff

what ever happened to michelle, irwin?
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:55pm Droll:

I hardly noticed the transition! You're like a PAMS chorus.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:55pm Fredericks:

I believe, I heard the original version of "Stronger Than Dirt" (Mummies) on Nardwar's show. Laundry detergent love song.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:56pm Sean D. Daily:

And silicone tastes nice and goes down smooth and the nice doctors who pump your stomach are always SO nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 5:57pm rrg:

I expect it will never happen, but it would be a very nice thing if "Incorrect Music" returned to the airwaves. At least for a while.
  Wed. 11/20/13 5:58pm Barb E.:

Incredible. Great show you guys - fantastic book, too!
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Nice show today folks! I don't think I can make it down on Saturday, though.
Next book: lyrics to songs you didn't think had any.

Silicone turns your gross green.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/20/13 5:59pm rrg:

Indeed, thanks. Unquestionably, the answer.

Michelle Boule, Amy Kessler, Sport Murphy, Irwin Chusid perform faultlessly. Now to develop a new libretto to expand their repertoire.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 5:59pm Sean D. Daily:

Surprisingly tight performance for a bunch of volunteer DJs.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 6:00pm northguineahills:

I'm very impressed. Nice talent, folks!
  Wed. 11/20/13 6:07pm Robert:

Looks like this now becomes the comment line for tonight's 7SD. I thought that was Don McLean singing the theme song.
  Wed. 11/20/13 6:08pm Robert:

Are The Clams named that because they hit a lot of clams when they play? (That's slang for bad notes on wind instruments.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/21/13 9:01am Michael:

Great show - more please! Tractor Drivin' Man in My Bathroom!
  Thu. 12/5/13 1:47pm Francis:

Great stuff. Somehow I'd never heard of Raymond Scott's "A Man Called Brown" until today. Would love to see that album posted on the WFMU blog (fingers crossed)!
