Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/9/08 3:07pm GUMBY:

If it's Lee Morgan it must be Irwin time.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:10pm Sean Daily:

Nice start to the proceedings.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:13pm north guinea hills:

wow, never heard this cannonball adderly track before. bravo! stumped again!
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:20pm Bad Ronald:

Nice Steely Dan cover!
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:23pm Sean Daily:

Don't lie to us, Irwin! MARIA WAS REALLY KENNY IN DISGUISE, WASN'T SHE! OR HE!
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:24pm north guinea hills:

some live albums kick ass, it depends on the band/musician....
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:26pm Bad Ronald:

Live at Leeds for example.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:32pm Otis:

Some live albums suck royal ass. Van Halen's 1993 "Right Here Right Now" is so grandpa, even the codger would enjoy it... maybe.

But the majority of live albums do kick ass. It's always nice to hear a polished band recreate a sound live.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:32pm Listener Dave:

Is this Moby track the substitute for today's obligatory Hall & Oates track? (See Maria and Ken's playlists for details on the H&O issue).
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:34pm JJZ:

It better not be!
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:35pm JJZ:

Well, I would prefer it not be.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:35pm Otis:

OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:37pm Sean Daily:

"Up Came Oil" ROCKS, Irwin.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:38pm Bren Collins:

I've got this awesome industry "musical" promoting G.E. Electricity. "The Nuclear Kid" is my favourite gun-slingin' western on the record!
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

one more comment about live albums...I know someone who absolutely abhors hearing the audience. I find that interesting.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:40pm Bren Collins:

The first Jandek live album irritated me because of that one guy in the audience who kept calling out "Yeah!!" every few seconds. Heh...
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:42pm carol:

Hey. Remembered to tune in (at the office). Heard Moby and thought I was listening to an ordinary radio station....for a minute.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:44pm Otis:

I would buy an album with nothing but the sounds of audiences. There was recently a recording put out like this but with concert intermissions, http://tinyurl.com/3eyd6j
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:50pm north guinea hills:

Otis, that sounds like a Jan jelinek project....
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:55pm Irwin:

Otis, say hi to Carol. THAT Carol.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:58pm Ismael:

a little concert intermission would sound good just... about... now.
  Wed. 7/9/08 3:59pm carol:

Hey, don't tell Otis what to do. Loved Dance, dance, dance and not just cuz of the title.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:01pm Gigantor:

Yay! Calypso! And a new version of Cinemascope! Bring back Muriel (but for the first hour--I miss the last part of your show now)!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:02pm Hooty Sapperticker:

Hi, Maelo!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:04pm Ismael:

good mahwing! how ah you? this sounds like Ed Wood. yeuh.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:05pm Harvey:

song of India!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:06pm Groovy:

Yeah, groovy
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

love your vinyl and it will perform
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:15pm Parq:

How 'bout a live recording of Cages 4'33"? An occasional cough, perhaps the rustle of progrm pages . . .
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:21pm Otis:

Bonjour Carol!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:23pm Otis:

Got any R Stevie Moore today Irwin? Something classic maybe... with you on DRUMS?
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:24pm carol:

Ciao, Otis!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:34pm Hooty Sapperticker:

This song contains invaluable advice.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:35pm Peter K:

Regarding that Wayne Shorter track (great choice, by the way): Those musicians whose names you don't know are named McCoy Tyner, Reggie Workman, and Elvin Jones. Never heard of 'em. Just a bunch of hack session guys, I guess.

Regarding Louis Jordan: Yes! Yes! More! More! Always worth hearing -- and I'm very pleased to know that he and I practically share a birthday.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:37pm Irwin:

Pete: Thanks for the personnel on the Shorter track. I have an mp3 and the liner notes are SO TINY.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:38pm Otis:

You could play Jordan until 6pm and I would be a HAPPY man. This is the PERFECT antidote to a work filled afternoon.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:50pm north guinea hills:

wow, never heard "jordan for president". wfmu has been throwing me unknowst-to-me jewels at me all day!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:51pm Otis:

I don't know 1/2 of these songs. I love it, and I my productivity has doubled over the past 1/2hr.
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:55pm Listener Dave:

This Louis Jordan set is the best stuff I've heard all day. Beats Hall & Oates by miles and miles.

Thank you Irwin!
  Wed. 7/9/08 4:59pm G:

I've seen the group name spelled Tympany (not the same as the drum called tympani) -- not sure, though --

Great set...
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:01pm dave from sea:

How about some Slim Gaillard?
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:04pm Peter K:

Unless I missed it, I think that in "Jordan for President" (which I had never heard before either), presumably recorded sometime before the summer of 1952, he name-checks EVERY possible major-party presidential nominee for that year EXCEPT the eventual Democratic candidate, Adlai Stevenson. I'm not sure what this means, but it's kind of interesting, no?
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:05pm Irwin:

"Tympany" -- yep, you iz rite! I done fixed 'em all.
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:05pm Otis:

Slim's "Lauging in Rhythm" has to be one of my favorites of his. Right up there with "How High The Moon". I'm right with ya Dave. If not today, next week Irwin?
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:06pm Listener Dave:

So what would be the best Jordan compilation to buy if you didn't have $200 to blow on the Bear Family box?
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:07pm G:

np -- it's for the historical record, given the archive, lol
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:09pm dave from sea:

The Proper Jordan box, as well as their Slim Gaillard, are both excellent and a great bargain.
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:42pm Listener Dave:

Is anyone else waiting for X Ray Burns to yell "Jonesy!" or is it just me?
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:47pm Listener Dave:

Charmberlain was a setup reliever until about 6 weeks ago. Don't get many wins or even saves there.
  Wed. 7/9/08 5:51pm Irwin:

I know, I know. But FOUR LIFETIME W'S -- and he's already doing corporate endorsements?
