Listener comments!

  Wed. 4/8/09 3:04pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

an empty chalkboard to scrawl on.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:04pm Pearly Sweets:

  Wed. 4/8/09 3:04pm Ike:

Hello all. Irwin, have you heard the new Metric album? I think you would love it. You would love it like a purring cat.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:05pm Cecile:

what a lovely tribute page to Lou D'Antonio.
Never heard his show, but today's WFMU stands on his shoulders.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:10pm Sean Daily:

Fifth comment or thereabouts! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:12pm fishmonkeystew:

Every day as I listen to WFMU I send home emails labeled "music" with the names of artists, songs and albums to follow up. I've sent about 12 today.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:17pm Cecile:

Oh, don't apologize Irwin. Pay tribute!
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:18pm G.:

Hear hear Cecile...
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:21pm Parq:

It looks like I'm going to get very little work done this afternoon. I remember the Duck well, and am going to be glued to this show.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:22pm fishmonkeystew:

It's people like Lou that make it easier to sift through the insanity that is this world.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:25pm G.:

Were the names Vin Scelsa and Pseu Braun?

Woohoo, first internet comment on a 1978 audio stream!
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:32pm Ike:

I was not around for the Duck when originally on the air, so this is fun and educational. Some current comedic programs could learn a thing or several.

The fact that he moved to Vermont must mean he was a man of great taste. Or taste in states anyway.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:34pm Lizardner Dave:

The Duck was before my time, so this is interesting.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:44pm Cecile:

Gee, I'm nostalgic for great radio I never heard.
  Wed. 4/8/09 3:50pm Cecile:

you are correct, Irwin!
I remember getting a Bob and Ray book in HS, and just loved it. The House of Toast!
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:00pm Ismael:

Bob & Ray were the shiznit! as you might know, Bob [Elliott] is the father of Chris Elliott.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:02pm Cecile:

That I know! And he made great appearances on "Get a Life"
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:04pm fishmonkeystew:

Is there a Duck archive? Did I already miss that info?

Great show, Irwin. Thanks for sharing. I can feel my brain expanding as I listen.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:07pm BSI:

The komodo dragon.... is... the world's largest.... living lizard...
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:11pm G.:

@fish: at the bottom of the tribute page ( http://www.wfmu.org/ldtrib.html ) check the not-yet-active link to:

The Hour of the Duck Audio Archives (coming soon)
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:13pm dagwood:

great show Irwin. Coincidence that Bob Elliott was on a show called Radio Deluxe last night with John Pizarelli (sp). Bob was talking about his shows and spinning OLD Bing Crosby. A hoot.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:17pm Cecile:

Dagwood, is there a link or archive to that?
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:23pm randy in NC:

And Chris Elliott's daughter is Abby Elliott now on SNL
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:31pm Cecile:

Ah! The seed of the Handsome Boy Modeling School!
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:33pm Ike:

Sorry Irwin, I just looked, and there do not appear to be any archives at WNCS's web site.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:33pm Ismael:

Charm School for Men must have influenced Chris Elliott's "Handsome Boy Modeling School" on "Get a Life," where his character enrolls to become a male model.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:36pm dagwood:

cecile. I found a link. It is a good show on NPR.

  Wed. 4/8/09 4:36pm thecleef:

I'm reading Chris Elliott's newest book...fun
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:37pm Cecile:

Thanks, dagwood.

Yes, Ismael. The sketch on Get a Life, and Handsome Boy inspired that funny hip hop group from the 90s
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:38pm G.:

Yep, Ike -- and in fact, I checked last week during Fabio's show and, using LD's name, I could not pull any hits at all on the Vermont station's site. Did I miss anything?
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:38pm randy in NC:

I remember listening to The Duck back in the '80's. Condolences to his family and many friends...
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:45pm randy in NC:

Back in the days when each radio show was performance art to be actively listened to instead of a homogenized "product" to have on in the background. FMU continues to be the carrier of this torch.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:45pm Ismael:

Cecile: I lent my copy of the HBMS hip-hop CD to my buddy, and his house was robbed, and they took only my HBMS record. good-taste thievery!
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:46pm Laura L:

I'm sorry to say I didn't know Lou, but I met that sniveling little Gordon kid a few times. Radio Freak!
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:47pm tombom:

this is brilliant.
  Wed. 4/8/09 4:51pm G.:

He even left a mention of himself and his 6 year old scatting in the Green Mountains, in a year 2000 amazon.com review of the disc they sang to --

  Wed. 4/8/09 4:51pm Cecile:

that is amazing, Ismael!
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:00pm Joe Bacon:

Irwin, thanks for sharing your memories of Lou with us!
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:05pm Cecile:

Yes, Irwin, thank you very much.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:06pm Laura L:

Here, here--thanks, Irwin--a wonderful tribute. Thanks for putting it together. Much enjoyed and appreciated.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:21pm Cecile:

WOW! A remix of Annie song this used to be a big staple on my disco channel on Pandora. Great song.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:31pm Pearly Sweets:

it was just the same four bands.... melting away my brain for three hours.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:32pm Cecile:

Irwin, you're making my head hurt. Catch you next week.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:32pm G.:

Nope, in 2025 Andy will still be listening to 70s AOR. Like most people his age.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:34pm Pearly Sweets:

I kinda wish the other Andy playlists were real just to listen to those shows. Any of them sound like they could have been 100% better than his show last week.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:34pm Parq:

Wouldn't everyone agree that "My Disco Channel on Pandora" would be a good book title? ("This is your disco channel. And this is your disco channel on Pandora.")
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:37pm Joe Bacon:

Just any mention of disco makes me realize how old I am and I can remember when I stood in line at Studio 54 with my then girlfriend and my wardrobe had half a dozen neon colored leisure suits 30 years ago
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:39pm General Bullmoose:

What's good for General Bullmoose is good for everybody!
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:39pm jan:

wow Irwin, does your playing "The Country's In the Very Best of Hands"
mean that you have changed your stripes?
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:43pm G.:

jawohl, so geil ( = cool)
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:43pm Carmichael:

I went to a disco once in Colorado in the '70s. Lights in the floor, thumping walls, chest hair, medallions, the whole thing. Up on a kind of opera box toward the ceiling, some kid was playing a drum kit along with the thump. Wailing away by himself for hours. Someone said it was the owner's son, adding a groove to the already groovy music.

Somehow, I survived to this day. Now, I listen to Tuvan throat singing and Lipsynca. Life's a cruel mistress.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:44pm Laura L:

Air-conditioning never sounded so gut. Toll, mensch!
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:44pm Parq:

"Wrestle poodles and win!"
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:45pm Irwin:

A/C? Izzat what they was spieling about, LL?
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:45pm Carmichael:

Irwin! Neil Innes! Tribute to Apollo C. Vermouth, the producer of "Urban Spaceman"!

<holding up lighter> Light for Peace!!
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:48pm Parq:

"Today, I am two seperate gorillas!"
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:48pm Carmichael:

Although Irwin has superior knowledge and taste, I'll pass on to the uninitiated that Mr. Apollo was Paul McCartney, operating under a contract-necessitated pseudonym.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:50pm G.:

Klima = climate Anlage = foundation

Klimaanlage = a building's A/C system
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:51pm Laura L:

Yeah, Klimaanlage means air-conditioning system. A surprising subject matter!
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:55pm Carmichael:

Finishing with a bang, dude. Enjoy the happy hour.
  Wed. 4/8/09 5:59pm Laura L:

Irwin, now go and have one on your brain!
  Wed. 4/8/09 6:02pm Carmichael:

Go straight to Hell, Andy.
  Wed. 4/8/09 9:27pm Liza and Jim Price:

We mourn EL PATO from la isla de Vieques Puerto Rico. Let me tell you that the rum is smooth like buttersctoch.
  Thu. 4/9/09 2:24am Jaclyn:

Thanks so much for dedicating your show to my uncle Lou, Irwin. It means a lot to me and the rest of his family/friends. I didn't get to catch it live but am really enjoying it now :)
