I enjoyed Jenny O. I'll need to look into her stuff.
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 4:16pm Archivist Vivian:

This piece playing now reminds me of the piano stylings of John Larkin (Scatman John) but a bit more dissonant and avantgarde.

This dust bunny may be the granddaddy of them all. It needs to be the start of the New Jersey Dust Bunny Museum.

It had whiskers, LL.

And a fluffy tail and big ears?

Nope, not even.

You don't EVEN.
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 4:47pm Fredericks:

Irwin, I really appreciate you including the Roches in your recent playlists. I didn't realize how much I missed hearing them. Even with cheesy Eighties drum fills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/30/19 4:49pm diciassette:

Lovedust weird and woozy. Black postcards/black champagne. Swedish fish. Renee is crying mermaid eyes, 1995. Rememories. Dizzy orange peel. Romantica.
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 4:50pm Archivist Vivian:

They're a nice group. I always like being introduced to new artists on WFMU. I've found so many!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/30/19 4:53pm Jeff Moore:

Definitely great to hear some Roches re-surfacing. I enjoyed hearing "Love Radiates Around" even though "Another World" was the only Roches album I didn't immediately take to when it was released – it seemed horrifically overprocessed compared to those great Fripp-produced albums.

But basically any Roches is better than no Roches, and it's good to hear this one with later ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/30/19 4:54pm Ike:

For a second there, "when Russia was white" brought something *very* different to mind that what I'm sure Blossom Dearie meant, given the KGB President-for-Life's reactionary whip-up-the-mob methods.
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 4:54pm Archivist Vivian:

I've got to be scooting. Thanks, Irwin and everyone else! Bye <:
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/30/19 4:55pm Irwin:

Adios, Archivist lady.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/30/19 5:20pm Ike:

"Guilty pleasure"? Irwin, you're damaging your own brand. I didn't think you felt guilt about *anything*.
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 5:22pm coelacanth∅:

you could use well-structured reusable grocery bags, like the people in civilized countries do.
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 5:22pm SSS:

YOU ARE SINGING MY SONG!!! I despise the plastic bags you describe. I NEVER use them (anymore) for several years. An abomination to the environment!
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 5:25pm SSS:

Koko seems to agree
Avatar Wed. 1/30/19 5:25pm coelacanth∅:

...though i get plastic bags occasionally when i need one to line my kitchen or bathroom trash bin. (and it probably hurts the environment less than a paper bag does)
  Wed. 1/30/19 5:46pm Santos L Halper:

Nice one, Irwin, top 5 Airplane for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/30/19 5:47pm Irwin:

Thanks for the Swan Dive Mr Chusid. And it was 2 weeks i was asking for them to be played, not eighteen weeks. Nice bit of humour there on your part.
