Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/6/08 3:28pm JJZ:

Baby Elephant Safari is fun.
  Wed. 2/6/08 3:36pm CG in HF at MCRE:

Well, I've never heard anything like Bah Bah that.
  Wed. 2/6/08 3:37pm Parq:

Pink Freakin' Floyd, cha-cha-cha.
  Wed. 2/6/08 3:56pm north guinea hills:

the bronchitis must have put irwin in an amiable mood as this set is surprisingly 'listenable' (whatever that means)
  Wed. 2/6/08 3:58pm andy:

Does any one know if it is unlucky to not have eaten pancakes on shrove tuesday?
  Wed. 2/6/08 3:59pm Zach in Philly:

Chambers into Isaak -- YeeHaw!!
  Wed. 2/6/08 3:59pm Listener Dave:

I'm still waiting for the "Manilow bomb". Both Ken and Irwin have crossed that line before. Though I think Ken only played the jingles medley.
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:00pm Listener Dave:

Re; pancakes: Like all superstitions, if you believe it is unlucky then it is.
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:07pm Cubicle Carl:

You deserve a break today, Irwin.
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:09pm Wednesday Fan:

Welcome back Irwin! Will Wednesday ever return to Ken, Kenny and Irwin?
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:11pm Listener Dave:

You mean you can't cross a line to drop a bomb? I would think you'd ALWAYS want to cross a line before dropping a bomb.

If you really wanted to do it, you could just pull up a song from an archive, right? You don't need no stinkin' library, do you?
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:23pm Zach in Philly:

Dig that twang in "Since She Started to Ride"! Sweet music to my ears -- thank you, thank you, thank you~
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:24pm Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Time to Irwinate!
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:25pm Sean Daily:

We liiiiiiike MGMT... Nice pitch-thick beats.
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:26pm Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

I know that I like "Time to Pretend." My opinion on MGMT is still forming.
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:28pm Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

The Management
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:30pm Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:


Well, they used to be known as "The Management". Maybe just "Management".
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:30pm Doug:

My old band was called The Management. We were on Smash or Trash on Scharpling's show years ago.
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:35pm Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Maybe that's why they changed their name.. :)
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:37pm fishmonkeystew:

In My Spaceship rocks!
  Wed. 2/6/08 4:39pm ryan:

  Wed. 2/6/08 4:44pm Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

  Wed. 2/6/08 5:06pm Zach in Philly:

Montgomery Gentry ~ Yeah, Baby! I'll be daw-Gone:-)
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:26pm Parq:

Oh man, I remember that D van D episode. Dick's wife sings Calypso for Suburbanites -- well, why the heck not?
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:38pm burden:

oh irwin, where is the punchline, you would disdain quotidian muppets rocking out youtube clip,
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:48pm north guinea hills:

one ticket to the lake of fire for me good sir, i find this roy harper hilarious!
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:50pm abdul:

wait, this roy harper song is heinous and noxious
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:51pm north guinea hills:

i also find berhard gunter hilarious at the end of the day
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:52pm Sean Daily:

Funny, I just have this sudden desire to deck Mr. Harper.

But the better angels of my nature whisper, "First Amendment, boys, First Amendment." Everyone's entitled to their opinion, including the mouthbreathing yahoos.
  Wed. 2/6/08 5:58pm Listener Dave:

Great show even without the Manilow.
  Wed. 2/6/08 8:59pm Irwin Chusid:

Roy Harper writes a song about violence committed against innocent people in the name of Islam -- and for that Sean Daily labels him a "yahoo" and feels inclined to physically assault him. But Sean asserts his respect for "freedom of speech" (somewhat grudgingly it would appear). On the subject of Islamic extremism in its more violent forms, however, Sean has no comment, and doesn't appreciate others offering critical views. They deserve to be "decked." Why not beheaded?
  Thu. 2/7/08 3:58pm Sean Daily:

You have a point, Irwin, and I apologize. That was out of line. My only explanation - not excuse, but explanation - for such a comment is that I was having a bad day. Problem is, if Harper had been standing there, I WOULD have hit him, and things would have gone to a very bad place very quickly.

Harper does have his right to free speech, and I shouldn't have been so flip about it. My mother likes to say, "I disagree with him, but I'll give my life for his right to say it." That's something I thought I'd learned.

You were right to call me on that.

But I still think the song was bigoted. Not every Muslim is violent. If it were, and if every Muslim was an honor-killer and suicide bomber, then the streets of America would be awash with blood. Keep in mind that there are a lot of Muslims here. What I objected to was his broadbrushing the ENTIRE religion.

Or maybe I'm wrong, and I heard the song completely wrong, and I made myself sound like a complete jerk. Wouldn't be the first time.

Next time, I'll learn something from this, and I'll make my objections known without threats of physical violence.
  Thu. 2/7/08 4:06pm Sean Daily:

Actually, scratch that. I DID make myself sound like a complete jerk, no matter if I was right or not - kinda like all that righteous violence that Harper was objecting to. Oy...
  Sun. 2/17/08 7:54pm Marty Parker:

Thank you for having the courage to play Roy Harper's "Black Cloud of Islam". Those lyrics give me chills. Pay no mind to those accuplaylisters who get all worked up, who NEED to be offended, who wish to censor. You have allowed great art to stand by itself without apology. Go Irwin!
