  3:12pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I'm so happy to be able to listen to Irwin's show again after many weeks away! And what a great group of cuts to start with.
  3:14pm the muffled sound is gone:

i usually hear a muffled sound in my day-to-day life...but there is no muffled sound in this Robocup song...it cured me!...i've been curred by Irwin's show
  3:16pm Laurie:

Irwin, did you know that the Postmarks have a new album? I think it's out now. I saw them play recently, and they played new stuff. All lovely, of course.
  3:16pm Janet H:

.....i bought the Postmarks album By the Numbers....love it!
  3:18pm Janet H:

really Laurie?...i need to check that out
  3:18pm Irwin:

Hey, Janet. That Postmarks cd is fulla gems. All it lacks is AMANDA.
  3:19pm jeff_m:

yeah this is beautiful, ordering now :)
  3:23pm Laurie:

Oh, correction. It's not out 'til August 25th.
  3:24pm Laurie:

Passions was my favorite soap opera.
  3:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's true, man...I was thinking the same thing the past few weeks.
  3:26pm Phillip2167:

  3:26pm BSI:

...the solution, clearly, is an Irwin/Amanda a.m. drive-time schlock-jock hoedown of biblical proportions. ... urp...
  3:26pm no Amanda?:

I'm outta here!

Just kidding....
  3:27pm Irwin:

No Amanda? Hell, I'M LEAVING!!!!!
  3:27pm british voice:

say ol'chap, you're not "pissing out" on us, are you? the whole gang's here listening!
  3:27pm Dave B in NYC:

I think taking a break from Amanda will only increase the magic that she brings next time you spin some.
  3:27pm Amanda Fan Club:

By not playing Amanda the terrorists win...
  3:28pm phillip2167:

hey irwin what about roadhog and the cadilliac cowboys?
  3:33pm g dilly:

phillip2167 is correct: nothing raises your spirits like a good barfight! (ducks to avoid flying chair)
  3:34pm g dilly:

or, a school gymnasium fight! (ducks to avoid flying folding chair)
  3:37pm BSI:

christ, if I can go cold-turkey on kenny g, I should be able to get over amanda........ but both?!?!?
  3:38pm BSI:

oooohhhhhhhhh............ sweet fix......
  3:38pm GP:

LOL g dilly...a buddy of mine is a band named:
"Schoolgirl Knifefight"
  3:38pm Dave B in NYC:

YEAH BABY - I knew you couldnt holdout. Amanda is like heroin for the ears....
  3:38pm Devin:

Yea,... I just turned it up...
  3:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I thought you had the personal willpower to resist temptation, but I see that I am incorrect.
  3:39pm GP:

correction: that should read: "is IN a band"

  3:39pm Denise in Washington, DC:

This gravelly-voiced infant is . . . Amanda?
  3:39pm Michele:

Thank god, Irwin. We were getting shaky just thinking about the lack of Amanda...
  3:40pm amandafan:

inside of my crusty, 31 yr old male mind, is a tiny amanda dressed in a run-dmc outfit.
  3:41pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I didn't realize that doing the cha-cha involved shaking one's booty.
  3:41pm Janet H:

amanda is growing on me.....
  3:41pm Laura L:

I hear a plea from BSI for a Kenny G number...
  3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

getting steamy in here....ahem...
  3:42pm BSI:

HELL YES you do...
  3:42pm dei xhrist:

I love you Irwin, especially by the sea shore
  3:42pm mike:

I'm unemployed. Amanda and Mark are making the day a little easier. Thanks ya'll.
  3:42pm deepinsidelova:

this slow-love shit is blowing my mind.
  3:42pm Devin:

Denise,.. Come on now...
  3:43pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Amanda's okay, but Mark Turns is making my heart beat faster.
  3:43pm Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

I think it is possible foor this guy to sound more insincere, but I am not sure how.
  3:43pm Marshall Stacks:

Word of the day: anaphrodisiacal.
  3:43pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Devin, I've never done the cha-cha! Does Amanda give lessons?
  3:43pm Harvey:

  3:43pm Laurie:

Oh, this Mark Turns track is killing me, Irwin. Oh man.

Oh no... wait, it's going in a direction I don't like.
  3:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's safe to say, this Mark fellow really enjoys this young lady's company.
  3:44pm The FCC:

Careful. We are listening closely to this Mr. Turns.
  3:44pm GP:

I will squeeze it and love it...
  3:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

did he bring her chicken soup? a box of kleenex?
  3:44pm Laurie:

  3:45pm BSI:

I need to hear Kenny G. reading this ASAP.
  3:45pm Amanda Fan Club:

This guy sounds like Sen. Mark Sanford
  3:45pm GP:

Oh I'm about to get all up in your bidness.
  3:45pm mike:

rubbing alcohol?
  3:45pm ?:

Did Mark Turns used to work for J&H Productions?
  3:46pm Difficult Listening:

"Passionless" is more like it. Mark Turns, mighty husbot!
  3:46pm someonehelpme:

Mark Turns sounds to me like a mellow Wesley Willis, only he's giving his sexy thang some medicine instead of whupping Batman's ass.
  3:47pm Devin:

  3:47pm Marshall Stacks:

Irwin, your show has taken a diabolic turn. Turns, whatever.
  3:47pm deepinsidelova:

no one understands the funky-romance-descriptive-talk-love of Mark Turns.
  3:47pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Mark Turns into Wesley when Wesley forgets his medicine.
  3:48pm Difficult Listening:

That'd be a neat trick, as Wesley is a bit dead.
  3:48pm nna:

HA! Kenny G reads Mark Turns FTW
  3:50pm Marshall Stacks:

This Bruce Lash track is an effective palate cleanser/antidote.
  3:53pm GP:

Amazing lyrical talent is being presented today.
Thanks for that Irwin.
  3:53pm Denise in Washington, DC:

You mean "Philosophy of the World" actually has a melody? Gosh . . . who knew?
  3:54pm Laurie:


  3:57pm Janet H:

Andrea Silenzi will be co-hosting with Andy on 7sd....
  3:59pm sonic yoot:

lee is free!!!
  4:00pm Janet H:

i believe he is on vacation
  4:01pm andy kaufman:

Wesley's not dead, just incognito. I had breakfast with him the other day.
  4:01pm Janet H:

Ken will be gone for a month
  4:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

not understanding the obsession w this band
  4:05pm Janet H:

Iwrin...um what happened to andy's fb account....he's gone!
  4:05pm Janet H:

  4:06pm Irwin:

DCE: I don't get it either. Help me. Plz.
  4:07pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Wow. The articals on Mark Turns's webpage show that he was nominated for Who's Who in the World!
  4:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

willpower, dude.
  4:12pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

doesn't this thing by Don Costa have a melody very similar to an ELO song?
  4:13pm Irwin:

If so, ELO stole it from Brian Wilson.
  4:13pm Marshall Stacks:

Oh, nice one, Irwin. I haven't listened to this one (Cactus Cat) in years.
  4:14pm Laurie:

My cat just jumped onto my lap.
  4:15pm Denise in Washington, DC:

This Cactus Cat song is actually good!
  4:19pm BSI:

another great Brian Wilson/Van Dyke Parks item, still un-released after all these years...
  4:20pm dc pat:

wait, is Kenny sitting in for Irwin? the dj's inflection is getting dangerously close to Kenny's...
  4:20pm guy at party:

<snaps on rubber glove> Irwin? Irwin? Where did Irwin go?
  4:22pm conspiracy theorist:

They're the same guy. dint you no?
  4:23pm a guy in a chair in a cube:

Wow I actually do like this Tea for 2. Thanks Irwin.
  4:24pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I was listening to NPR this morning (please don't mock me) and was amazed to hear Andy Breckman being interviewed. "Hey, I know him!"
  4:26pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Well, I don't really *know* him, but . . . um. I'll shut up now.

  4:27pm BZ:

Mock, mock, mocking on Denise's door...
  4:27pm BSI:

does anybody REALLY "know" andy breckman?
  4:28pm Denise in Washington, DC:

In the Biblical sense?
  4:41pm Sara:

Irwin! At last I can listen to your show live again... and these last few have convinced me that I may need to drop the forty bucks on that Koichi Sugii record. Thanks... ?
  4:41pm GP:


<tumbleweed blows across set>
<crickets chirping>
  4:41pm Janet H:

so peaceful
  4:44pm Irwin:

Welcome back to realtime, Sara. The Koichi Sugii collection is superlative.
  4:48pm GP:

At 89 y.o.a. Dave Brubeck is till playing gigs! This also heard on NPR so it must be true....and amazing.
  4:52pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Aha! Somebody else listens to NPR! I'm not the only self-absorbed yupster in Irwin's audience!
  4:53pm v k:

saw dave brubeck at Morristown (NJ) Theature in 2007 - amazing, absolutely amazing
  4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I listen to a few NPR shows, especially on Sunday mornings...NPR goes good with a mellow Sunday morning.
  4:56pm v k:

mellow sunday morning = bowl + espresso + reggae schoolroom (10 to 12) on wfmu
  4:56pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I love NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me -- lousy title, good show. It's like an aural News of the Weird that also mocks mainstream newsmakers.
  4:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, I can't do the wake'n'bake no more dese days
  5:00pm Laurie:

This Mark Turns is a real sweet talker. He reminds me of Kenny Powers.
  5:00pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I wish Mark would go back to talking about rubbing alcohol.
  5:01pm Marshall Stacks:

Large Bare Bosom = OK NFAB.
  5:01pm ginger tim:

re. NPR - how many 'FMUers pay the bills via WNYC/public radio? More than a handfull, I reckon.
BTW, Mark Turns is turning me gay!
  5:01pm GP:

Yeah Denise. I listen to the NPR on the way to and from work, no other good stations here to listen to during that time...I don't have an MP3 connection in the car or I'd listen to FMU archives.
  5:01pm deepinsidelova:

How can anyone understand such intensity?
  5:02pm v k:

morning radio in NYC area - 91.5 has a decent show from 6 to 9am called "wake up NY" - i listen to it on drive in
  5:03pm Denise in Washington, DC:

The day I can listen to Internet radio in my car will be the happiest day of my life. In the meantime, I'm stuck with the sucky DC stations.
  5:03pm Marshall Stacks:

I only saw a couple of free downloads on Mark Turns's site, and you've played three tracks, Irwin. Did you buy one of his CDs?
  5:05pm Marshall Stacks:

I can listen to Internet radio in my car. The first time I did it wasn't the happiest day of my life, but it was definitely up there.
  5:05pm texas scott:

greetings,Irwin.love the show....even more than pseu's.
  5:06pm mahavishnumama:

ov vey,this playlist is so good I think I will go and flagellate myself with a bream fish. What hang on I am out of bream, but I have some tilapia.
  5:07pm Denise in Washington, DC:

ginger tim -- you mean Mark isn't getting you excited at the idea of unbuttoning some woman's pajama top and nestling your head on her large bare bosoms?
  5:09pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Irwin, this "Two Pink Lines" song cries out to be followed by "You're the Sweetest Little Fetus."
  5:09pm mahavishnumama:

what can be better than getting large bosoms unbuttoned then?
  5:09pm someonehelpme:

Mark Turns is in touch with his inner lil' goat.
  5:09pm GP:

Picture this:
The most beautiful women you have ever seen, wearing Mexican sun dresses, cowboy boots, holding up a lone star beer, and singing along to this Eric Church song.....this is what I have to deal with...we all have our crosses to bear ; )
  5:10pm mahavishnumama:

im in touch with my inner Goethe and my outer Proust
  5:13pm Ike:

VK, I agree. Good to have decent music on the airwaves before 9 around here. Too bad D.C. has nothing similar. No wonder FMU has so many D.C. web listeners.
  5:14pm someonehelpme:

Not to make you insanely jealous or anything, GP, but...I married that woman.
  5:14pm BSI:

I could never locate my inner Goethe, at least not without a dentist's mirror. ... My outer Proust, however, has been OUT OF CONTROL...
  5:17pm GP:

Someonehelpme: <lucky!> I love them...every one of them...ah Texas!
  5:32pm Lizardner Dave:

Hello Irwin and commenters. LD here on vacation in Tuscany. Tuned in a half hour ago and I have to say that as great as this show makes my workday afternoon it's equally great as a late night listen. Thank Humanity for the Internet that makes it possible to listen to the greatest radio station in the universe anywhere I go (provided there's a web connection, of course).
  5:32pm Janet H:

just letting you know i'm still here....
  5:34pm Janet H:

yea thank God for the internet
  5:35pm someonehelpme:

Mark Turn's manuscripts read 'Chopin Liszt' on the top.
  5:35pm Denise in Washington, DC:

How nice of Mark to offer to become nude as well as asking it of his lady.
  5:36pm texas scott:

that Mark is quite the charmer...
  5:36pm ginger tim:

That's fine - what have you.
  5:36pm BSI:

Mark Turns is workin' that outer Proust...
  5:37pm Marshall Stacks:

Mark Turns is channeling Silvio Berlusconi.
  5:38pm BSI:

"When I'm plastered, things are weird."
  5:38pm texas scott:

i luv amanda!
  5:38pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Thank god -- more Amanda. I was beginning to go into withdrawal.
  5:39pm Lizardner Dave:

Amanda at 11:40 at night is awesome in a completely different way.
  5:40pm v k:

traffic and weather - this songs is everywhere
  5:43pm monica:

wait, did somebody say sue simmons?
  5:46pm Marshall Stacks:

Yes, and Chuck Scarborough.
  5:49pm Laura L:

All Andrea will need is a copy of the Mark Turns to hand to her soon-to-be live-in boyfriend. Nuf said!
  5:55pm Janet H:

Tell Andy I said Hi...
  5:57pm GP:

There is a silly parody called "Stairway to Gilligan"..singing the Gilligan's Island theme song. Need to find that one.

Have a good evening everyone.
  5:59pm Janet H:

  6:00pm VM:

  6:01pm gp:


Turn down Anderas mic...please
  6:06pm Lizardner Dave:
