Irwin plans to die in office. (As Penn Jillette often says about himself and Teller.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:03pm mb:

Irwin will never die. He will just archive.

hello irwin and everyone. i wanna be a radio priest
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:20pm Irwin:

Thou art hereby anointed.
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:22pm glenn:

hey, who died and made irwin pope?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:23pm rrg:

Anointed but not yet ordained, I expect. If WFMU is like the Jesuits (and I think it is) then it takes about 13 years of lay Jesuiting before you canjoin the actual priesthood.
Avatar    Wed. 11/1/17 3:24pm BronwynB:

thanks irwin! you can all call me father bronwyn now!

speaking of irwin and popes, i remember when pope francis's popeness was announced during irwin's marathon show in 2013

somewhere i have "i got a peep at the pope" button from philadelphia

pope frank is about as cool as a pope can be, all things considered.

Hello Irwin, hello all. And Bronwyn...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 3:27pm ɛɨk:

I notice some folks lately suggesting or implying that Hollywood is unusual in this respect. That's... interesting.
  Wed. 11/1/17 3:27pm Dean:

The Prats had a fun punk tune, "Disco Pope."

Note on this GR track: Brian Keenan, drummer for the Chambers Bros., doing a rare session.

Genya did produce the Dead Boys LP

what's his penance, father b.?
  Wed. 11/1/17 3:33pm Dean:

Totally forgot that bit of trivia, @Michael 98145. Fairly remarkable.
Avatar    Wed. 11/1/17 3:35pm Father Bronwyn:

Penance = a pledge!

As a matter of fact, we've all been a bit sinful lately and should give some penance to the Church of WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:37pm Jeff:

Yes - who here is sliding into the pews every week but not tithing?
Avatar    Wed. 11/1/17 3:39pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Jeff- Not anyone who's gonna show up on the board now!
  Wed. 11/1/17 3:39pm Dean:

Welp, I made a mistake at last weekend's parking lot sale at Down Home Records. I rifled past a John Hollenbeck LE disk (three bucks, I think) without grabbing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:42pm Irwin:

Just discovered this album recently. It's full of magnificent surprises, never a dull moment. Brilliantly arranged, performed and recorded.
Avatar    Wed. 11/1/17 3:43pm Hoboken Jack:

Penance completed! Pirates of Penzance still incomplete.
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:46pm glenn:

Hold, monsters!
Ere your pirate caravanseri proceed against our will
To wed us all...
Just bear in mind that we are wards in Chancery-
And Father is a Major-General!
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:47pm Wild Neil:

PEACE all. The Blues Traveler turn 30 this year. They have NEVER been played on WFMU so far as I can tell from the WFMU band browser. Thoughts?
Avatar    Wed. 11/1/17 3:48pm BronwynB:

Poor wandering one, though thou hast surely strayed...

I sang that as my senior vocal performance piece in high school. Three guys from my class dressed in drag as the sisters. It was real funny. At least we all thought it was.
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:48pm glenn:

that seems pretty reasonable to me.

Hey! My eurythmy teacher in elementary school was named Yuko Hara! I didn't know she moonlighted as a pop star.
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:50pm glenn:

Go, ye heroes, go to glory,
Though you die in combat gory,
Ye shall live in song and story.
Go to immortality!
Go to death, and go to slaughter;
Die, and every Cornish daughter
With her tears your grave shall water.
Go, ye heroes, go and die!
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:51pm glenn:

the combat gory line kills me every time i hear it.

ooooh. what about a game of thrones musical done in the style of g&s?
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 3:56pm Monica:

liked the yuko hara. has same vibe as doctor buzzard and the savannah band's "cherchez la femme."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:57pm Irwin:

Mo, the Yuko is from 1983, just came across it. Every track sounds like a gift. Know anything about her?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 3:57pm chris:

bless you, Irwin. i very much look forward to your tribute to her. i've been fondly remembering great times listening to Incorrect Music.

Oh no. Michelle .

Will publicly thank all who have pledged to WFMU since last week. We appreciate your support in this critical time. Anyone feeling the love and in a generous mood, please hit the widget atop the playlist. We're still short of our goal. Thx.
  Wed. 11/1/17 4:06pm Dean:

I know Hollenbeck from some of his other work. Tony Malaby, maybe, or Theo Bleckmann.
Avatar    Wed. 11/1/17 4:08pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Yup Irwin. Us NY & NJers will probably be losing our State & Local Income Tax deductions so we might want to ramp up the Charitable( of course channeling towards our beloved "Fragile Radio" station.

Speaking of taxes, Kev: money.cnn.com...

In reference to that link,Irwin, Hard liquor is probably not much less than 45% when Federal IR + State & Local taxes are factored in.

this is wonderful.

Man, I really want one of those woof moo shirts, but moving to a new apartment has rendered me unable to increase my S4L until after the new year.
  Wed. 11/1/17 4:35pm Jessicafallible:

That's so cute.
  Wed. 11/1/17 4:41pm Charlie Wranglers:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 4:42pm Irwin:

For those without a scorecard: Miles, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams.
  Wed. 11/1/17 4:47pm Charlie Wranglers:

What's the difference between a jazz musician and an extra large pizza?

The pizza can feed a family of four.

That's some nice drumming.

Really liking Herbie and Tony right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 4:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thinking along the lines of "scorecard," I wonder how a game of "Jazz Bingo" would sell. The cards would list various musicians like a regular bingo card and you'd play some recordings and mark your card as you recognize who's playing.

Outstanding set Mr. Irwin. Thank you. Yes, you are the man...

According to a sign I read on the L earlier this year, Oak Park is now the happenin' place for hep cats and creative types.

Listening but so busy getting a book done--the Miles was excellent, thanks especially for that.
  Wed. 11/1/17 5:08pm f0f0 (:

Hi, Irwin, people!

Talking about jazz musicians the legendary Muhal Richard Abrams just died.

Also, what is your email, Irwin? I couldn't sent you the worst (I. E. best) rated song in the late mp3.Com made by some children's band. Indeed, Amanda and Stinky Puffs are kid stuff compared to the great 'Prit Stick' .

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 5:12pm Carmichael:

@fofo, go down to the lower left hand corner of the playlist, and you'll find Irwin's e-mail.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 5:12pm Irwin:

That's my email. Maybe the file was too large?
  Wed. 11/1/17 5:13pm f0f0 (:

Hmm. I will try again. Thanks, Irwin!
  Wed. 11/1/17 5:16pm f0f0 (:

Yes, maybe the file was too large. large. But no Worries. I'll find a way to send you this unappreciated piece of art.

Thanks, carmichael.
  Wed. 11/1/17 5:20pm Laura L:

You could use WeTransfer if the file's too large--free service, just sign up for it and it's easy. We need to hear Prit Stick, don't we!

merci bien, Irwin!
  Wed. 11/1/17 5:59pm melinda:

I liked the Eubie Blake too
  Wed. 11/1/17 6:18pm zephyr:

Wasn't familiar with Bauer. Thanks for the intro, Irwin. But why not play the piece they're shamelessly apeing? "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?" by Zappa. "Roxy & Elsewhere", 1974
