Irwin, it's Sidney Bechet's birthday today. Just sayin'.

Looks like she's also hiding a bony old leg under that skirt! Sacre blu!

wow! this is the osmonds! never woulda thunk it.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:20pm rrg:

SoundHound confirms it.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:20pm Webhamster Henry:

Irwin is the great reputation re-evaluator.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:20pm Jaune:

It could be a big bottle of mouthwash, non? Maybe she has halitosis, non?
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:21pm Listening Out There:

Must have been The Osmonds in their druggy phase...
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:22pm Jaune:

Michael Jackson, s'il vous plait?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:22pm Webhamster Henry:

They sounded a little like Oingo-Boingo.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:26pm grassmother:

Dammit I thought this was going to be a Ricky Martin song
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:27pm common:

always loved this stone roses tune. reminds me of being a carefree young-un.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:29pm Jaune:

Yeah, I really liked that song.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:30pm grassmother:

Get outta my head!!!!
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:31pm BarbR:

Good story about the Stone Roses on NPR recently: www.npr.org...

Some day I will look up "tokenism"....
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:32pm Droll:

Last time Irwin put something in my head my brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare. I had to cram so many things to store everything in there! And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people, and all the nobody people, and now all the WFMU people, too...
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:33pm rrg:

Bless 'em all.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:33pm Jaune:

I, apparently, have a LOT of room :>(
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:33pm That Bipolar Guy:

Oh crap! I forgot there was no episode of joe frank:-(
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:34pm rrg:

So to speak.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:34pm Listening Out There:

Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:34pm Webhamster Henry:

Should be the theme song of the Loser's Lounge.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:35pm That Bipolar Guy:

I look forward to each and every episode of joe frank
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:36pm That Bipolar Guy:

Can't wait to see the video of seven second delay
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:36pm Jaune:

Fwank, I like your style.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:41pm Webhamster Henry:

This also sounds like Oingo-Boingo. With a penguin walking through it. Maybe I should just listen to some Oingo-Boingo.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:44pm Droll:

WH, I always thought every Oingo Boingo song sounded the same (it's definitely the same guitar part on every song), except for "Lost Like This", which is a superbly written, scored, performed, and recorded. Impossible to believe it's on an Oingo album.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:44pm Irwin:

To a man with Jan Hammer, everything sounds like Oingo Boingo.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:46pm Dean:

Add a good man and everything sounds Like Children.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:48pm Jaune:

Dean, do you mean "like chicken"?
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:49pm Dean:

No, Jaune, children do not taste like chicken.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:49pm fleep:

More like veal.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:49pm Dean:

I meant children: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xffOfSwp3bM
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:50pm Jaune:

Oh, okay, if you say so.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:52pm Droll:

The good drummer on the album Good God by Good God is Hank Ransome, who's other album credit is on Elizabeth by the band Elizabeth. Coincidence? I think not.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:52pm rrg:

  Wed. 5/14/14 3:54pm Phil from UES:

Irwin, that was outstanding. Never heard Good God before. I read online among the one hit wonders a band out Austin called Master Cylinder is quite good as well.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:54pm Droll:

[Shrugging and gesturing to the WFMU Memory Hole]
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:58pm That Bipolar Guy:

That's so refreshing to hear Irwin being honest on the air
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Per the 7SD newsletter e-mailed today, the method to get directions to Andy's is to e-mail Ken from this here web page - wfmu.org...
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:02pm Jaune:

I wish I could go but I am too far away! I love Ken and Andy. I have what I think are some nuclear zingers.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:03pm Irwin:

Droll: Almost a trifecta!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:04pm Jaune:

Irwin, I admire your courage for playing this on WFMU. Could these production values be recreated today?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:06pm Irwin:

Jaune: Stimulator's a pretty good album, genre-wise. It captures the '80s zeitgeist, while having been recorded in 2004.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:08pm Jaune:

WTf, OMG, surprised that was recorded in 2004. I thought the song was just pretty good and dated. Sometimes I love dated. Just my opinion.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:08pm Carmichael:

The Sutherland Brothers WITHOUT Quiver.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:10pm Irwin:

The Sutherland Brothers BEFORE Quiver.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:12pm Carmichael:

That means this is around 70-72 era?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:12pm Droll:

Quiver also has a self-titled album but no track named Quiver. So many close calls today!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:15pm grass mother:

This is making me feel like a mischievous little mouse...
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:27pm Alison Porchnik:

I love anything owl-related, because they are really cool birds. This is a pretty good song by and about owls too.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:29pm Alison Porchnik:

I love James Wolf too. Thanks for the wolves and owls, Irwin.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:29pm rrg:

James Wolff's voice is so...different. Always makes me look up from whatever I'm doing.

Not that I was doing anything other than listening to the program, of course.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:32pm Droll:

We don't know what you're doing down there, but as you can see from the playlist image, they're working on technology to detect you doing it. You've been warned.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:34pm rrg:

I see "Earlimart" and I always think "7-11". Could that be his intention?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:39pm Kurt Gottschalk:

never heard this chumba cover! thanks, irwin.

Always sorta liked this Stones song. The LP had the nifty hologrammic cover...

Andy's pool is not likely open yet. But soon.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:49pm Carmichael:

Will Andy show everyone his masurbatorium?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:51pm rsj:

word, best album for me. after seeing "performance" bought the album, not sure there's a connection. funny movie though, with a very-Michael Jackson-looking like Mick
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:51pm P-90:

Seven Second Delay might not be a technical disaster today.
As they always say, "miracles CAN happen."
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:54pm common:

@rsj: i also love performance. very strange and great! mick's music video in the middle of the film is a high point for me!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:54pm P-90:

@ Carmichael: Those attending the picnic should insist that Andy skip the "guest masturbatorium" and show them his private, personal masturbatorium.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:56pm mg:

Amanda. sigh. WHY
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:56pm Listening Out There:

It's the Third Son from the Stone, innitt?

Oh. my. God. It's an Amanda tornado.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I just heard that Blondie has a new 40th anniversary album. They'll be on TV tonight,
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:58pm Carmichael:

Aah, I come back from the copier to find Amanda in my cubicle. Who WOULDN'T like that, I ask you?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:58pm rrg:

Hey. I'm informed that Irwin's going to be on David Garland's "Spinning on Air" on WNYC this coming Sunday. A program about Sun Ra's centenary.

Irwin hasn't mentioned it, so I will.

These are usually posted on his Web site in advance of the radio airing:


But this one isn't up there yet.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:59pm Laura L:

Open the windows so they don't get blown out!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:59pm P-90:

@ Ken: Who's got Blondie tonight? Conan? Letterman?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:00pm Irwin:

Yes, I'll be on Spinning on Air w/Michael D. Anderson (WFMU's "The Good Doctor") talking about Sun Ra and playing newly remastered masters. This Sunday 8-9pm Eastern. WNYC.org
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm Listening Out There:

I like Spinning on Air. Too bad it's not a podcast. David Diamond says it's due to copyrights. Darn rights...
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm Carmichael:

I saw Blondie last summer, as the official spousal unit. Really, I don't see what the big deal is. In fairness, they had the ill fortune to follow Devo, who blew the doors off of the joint.
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm Listening Out There:

Podcasts make it better for those of us on The Other Coast.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm chris:

Outsider music never sounded so smooth jazzy
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:03pm P-90:

@ DJ Irwin: With David Garland this week? Far out, Man!
I'm there! Thanks @ rrg for the 411
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:03pm Listening Out There:

[-Listener Drops Subtle Hint to Host of Current Program-]
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@P-90 - Blondie is on The Daily Show on Comedy Central tonight (11:00 - 11:30 PM Eastern).
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:07pm Listening Out There:

Thx, P-90. I see I confused the composer with the DJ. My mistook.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:07pm chris:

I stand corrected on the Tony Seymour track! NOT outsider music. A cool neo-beat musical collaboration. Touche Irwin! Thank you.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:08pm Carmichael:

@Ken: wouldn't ya know it, a guy from Jersey is hosting them.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:08pm Irwin:

Tony recently was diagnosed with cancer.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:10pm Carmichael:

Any song with whistling is a cool laid-back song.
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:11pm P-90:

@ Ken: Thnx. That's a "get" for Jon Stewart! Like Spinning on Air scoring Irwin for Sunday!
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:11pm Lulu:

great show today, Irwin!
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:12pm Irwin:

thx looloo
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:12pm rrg:

I come here for things like this.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:17pm Droll:

Irwin, So, by that reasoning, ELP has the best songs?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:19pm Irwin:

ELP have warehouses full of Grammies because they use a LOT OF NOTES.

Wayne is an example of a singer who does not use a lot of notes. He has never even been NOMINATED for a Grammy.
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:42pm Laura L:

I know what Fritos are--what's Dejados?

Wayne is so cool, he doesn't need a last name. buffalotones.blogspot.com...
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:47pm P-90:

Lemme know when Joe Frank has a BBQ for listeners at HIS house
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:47pm berbo:

One-Note Samba kinda undermines Irwin's thesis.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:49pm Irwin:

"One Note Samba" is just the title. It actually contains 16 notes. It's like "One-Hour Dry Cleaners." They don't really get you back your clothing in one hour, "It's just the name of the shop, love. We take three weeks."
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:50pm Carmichael:

Will Andy have a rabbi to bless the hotdogs? Is listener John a serial killer? Will Andy's obnoxious son hog the camera?

So many questions, so few minutes.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:54pm still b/p:

That was music to De Beers ears.
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:54pm berbo:

A Joe Frank BBQ would be awesome. The rabbi would be a prostitute. The hot dogs would be specially imported from Lithuania. Everybody would be compulsively talking about their careers.

I want to go to a Joe Frank BBQ.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:57pm Droll:

Thanks Irwin! Yet another close call with BDoD! Have a fun week, yinz!
  Wed. 5/14/14 6:00pm P-90:
