Way swingin' jazz Irwinman... recently bought a box of CD's which has some nice jazz discs. Back into the cool hep.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:10pm Listening Out There:

Charlie Hunter is also in a good trio these days, with Curtis Fuller (trombone) and Bobby Previte (drums). Neat player...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 3:19pm Grok-o-matic:

And so it goes. Dang missed a Lane Steinberg song. Still have yet to find a copy of The Wind stuff.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:20pm P-90:

Greetings Irwin. Starting right off with some nice flavors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 3:23pm Grok-o-matic:

You're cracking me up right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 3:24pm Grok-o-matic:

Blackstar is really good. Been listening to it a bit.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:24pm berbo:

I'll never forget where I was when I heard Irwin announce that Ken had announced that Bowie was dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 3:25pm Grok-o-matic:

haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:26pm Lizardner Dave:

I'll never forget where I was when I tuned in late and read on the comments board that Irwin had announced that Ken had announced that David Bowie was dead.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:27pm P-90:

Unsettling news about Joe Frank. Listen to the guy's projects for 30+ years and you come to feel a certain attachment. Or affection even.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:27pm Irwin:

I'll never forget this chair I'm sitting in while I made that announcement about Ken's announcement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:28pm Alison Porchnik:

The video tha Chris Hadfield made is worth watching:
www.youtube.com... (but wait until Irwin is playing something that sucks).

"Where the f*ck did Monday go?"
Avatar    Wed. 1/13/16 3:29pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

Grok - I agree. Blackstar is amazing. I can't stop listening to it! But then, Outside was my favorite Bowie album.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:29pm P-90:

I saw Therese's Comments post: "Holy Crap", even before Irwin made it official by announcing Ken's announcement. I'll never forget that particular chill either.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:32pm Freddy's Friend:

What'd I miss? What news of Joe FranK?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:32pm fred:

@(Eyepatch) Fox: Outside is my favorite Bowie album too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:32pm Alison Porchnik:

Hadfield's recording is even more impressive considering that microgravity does weird things to your voice - spit doesn't drain, your tongue doesn't naturally rest at the bottom of your mouth, vocal chords behave differently, etc.

I love that Hadfield recording. What a soulful performance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 3:34pm Parq:

I'll never forget where I was when I realized I had no freaking idea what all this "Ken's announcement" stuff was about.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:34pm Laura L:

I'll never forget that I too was sitting in a chair when I read Irwin's brave statement that he was seated in a chair he now will never forget while he made the announcement about Ken's announcement. Sends shivers up the spine.

Thought I was going to have to turn off the radio to avoid wall-to-wall Carrot Top. Thank you for not doing that, Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:36pm Alison Porchnik:

What? What happened to Carrot Top? OMG
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Carrot Top looks like the affluenza teen's mom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 3:38pm Parq:

I'll never forget where I was when I saw Alison Porchnik ask what happened to Carrot Top.
Avatar Wed. 1/13/16 3:40pm andaloudog:

@KenHydePark: That got coffee spit right onto my keyboard. Worth it.
Avatar Wed. 1/13/16 3:40pm glenn:

hands up anybody who actually cares what happens to carrot top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:41pm Alison Porchnik:

I'm sure Chris Hadfield would care, in that "Carrot Top is a human being too" sort of way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:42pm Alison Porchnik:

Although I suppose at least 87% of him is no longer human.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:42pm P-90:

Wait, Carrot Top? What now? Not him too?

The peritoneal space station

As much as I love Prince and he's amazing. He ain't no Bowie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:50pm Alison Porchnik:

Boy George recently claimed that he slept with Prince. Does that count?
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:51pm MONEYBAG$:

Prince's death has been tied up in legal wrangling
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:52pm Alison Porchnik:

Oops, I meant "perineal" space station. Pardon the anatomical mistake.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:53pm berbo:

I can never remember when I first heard the rumor that Paul McCartney was dead. Was that the 70s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:53pm dale:

i couldn't take a non-stop barrage of prince's music. most of it sounds like it was recorded on recoton cassette tape
Avatar Wed. 1/13/16 3:53pm glenn:

boy george is full of shit.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:54pm Sharon G:

I'll never forget where I was when my radio speakers cracked under the weight of the irony in Irwin's comments about the death of David Bowie and the ??? of Station Manager Ken.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:54pm Laura L:

I just want to point out that Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:54pm Alison Porchnik:

HA!
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:54pm Hoboken Jack:

Looking forward to the purple prose regarding his eventual demise.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:55pm Carlo Ponte:

Mel Torme is still dead...

alison - perenial, like pernium?

Yes, that space station.
  Wed. 1/13/16 3:57pm P-90:

Ha, this sounds so much like one of Fred "Mister" Rogers's puppet voices
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 3:59pm dale:

that station went into a black hole.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 4:00pm Irwin:

Joe got an anonymous $5K donation for his med bills. Now above $25K.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 4:04pm Alison Porchnik:

Which doesn't mean there's no need to support him. They had already been eating into their savings before all of this happened. (And everyone knows how much radio producers and artists make.) Hopefully they'll go way above the goal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/13/16 4:07pm Irwin:

The goal is $40K. They're a long way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 4:08pm Grok-o-matic:

Actually just listened to this song for the first time earlier today. Dig it.

every time we NEED the EAS the power is out and we don't hear it anyway. did it get activated during sandy or irene or lee? i think not.

No! Santa for President.
  Wed. 1/13/16 4:36pm P-90:

Joe's site currently says 25K raised of a 55K goal. I'd guess that many potential supporters haven't even heard of his current circumstances yet. I'd love to see him get 100%.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 4:36pm Linda Lee:

love the sounds today Irwin! Satan for President indeed. as usual.

In all seriousness, I remember quite clearly the first time I heard "Hunky Dory". It was New Year's eve, back in the 70s. My friend next door came over, and we stole some of my dad's liquor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 4:43pm Parq:

Of all the versions of "Mars" I've heard on FMU this week, I liked that one the best.

haven't heard this guy in ages!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/13/16 4:44pm joe:

I really don't know if I've ever heard a bad version of Mars. Does that say something to the song writing?
Avatar Wed. 1/13/16 4:46pm glenn:

i don't have to worry about it. we canadians already voted our satan out in october.
     Wed. 1/13/16 4:47pm Listener Robert:

Dale, I remember the 1st time the EAS was used in this metro area was the early 1990s for a storm that wasn't so severe, just a lot of rain, & not even a real lot at that. They waited until the USSR dissolved to use it so people wouldn't freak out, then they used it apparently because they could. And they didn't use it 9/11/01.
     Wed. 1/13/16 4:52pm Listener Robert:

Then they instituted those color codes for alertness, & then they totally mindfucked me by instituting the totally unrelated Amber Alert, which I assumed to be part of the color coding because amber's a color. Then they added the Silver Alerts on the hwys., and now I might as well be color blind.
     Wed. 1/13/16 4:55pm Listener Robert:

NYC never made it out of Orange status -- not because of our Dutch hx, but for terror reasons, while the rest of the country slipped into Yellow, until eventually they just discontinued the whole thing except on the cartoons.
  Wed. 1/13/16 5:01pm Brendan:

EASy
  Wed. 1/13/16 5:07pm spodiodi:

Who cares? Indeed.
     Wed. 1/13/16 5:07pm Listener Robert:

Please, Ken, don't suspend Irwin! He'll make it up by IDing in some other stations' names.

I presume yr "timely" report on DB's death was a microaggression against his corpse, Irwin.
