When Juliette Binoche was in The Unbearable Lightness of Being, I so wanted her to be my Czech mate.

  3:38pm PMD:

Laurie, I read that first as 'the Kenny Rogers of dirty talk'
  3:38pm Virtue Defender:

Amanda, Miley and Scala Choir have been dumped for Mark Turns. Ah the fickleness!
  3:40pm Turns:

Irwin, your ability to broadcast Mark Turns to the world is a power that is as deep as the bluest ocean. That's how deep and blue it is. There is nothing deeper or bluer than that power you possess.
  3:42pm Irwin:

yeah, what hoppind to amander?
  3:44pm sherri:

  3:48pm PMD:

Does this mean we'll hear Miley next?
  3:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

"Trampoline" sounds like the theme song to a teen-flavored sitcom on a station that gets poor ratings.
  3:53pm Your Name:

This is better than the rembrandts
  3:53pm Turns:

Yo Irwin, thanks for rocking that Scott Walker tune. I've got it on one of those mystery/no track-listing mixtapes from way back, and never knew what it was. Cheers!
  3:53pm BSI:

Jeez! I turn my back for just 42 minutes and I miss Kenny Rogers talking dirty to Amanda? Heck!
  3:58pm Turns:

Mark Turns puts the "ice" in spicey.
  4:00pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  4:10pm Laura L:

  4:11pm BSI:

  4:19pm AnAnonymousParty:

Man, that tap dancing horse sure is talented.
  4:20pm PMD:

Fried butter. Amazing.
  4:20pm AnAnonymousParty:

Hey Irwin, it's a Kenny G trick we all learned: listen to another station during your show and comment about it here. It's fun!
  4:25pm dragn:

  4:52pm Maria:

  5:35pm hankone:

wow that's bad country
  5:35pm doug in DC:

My signature only has two recognizable letters left in it. I'm not actually sure if I remember the whole cursive alphabet.
  5:37pm hanktwo:

oh no, this is painfully bad
  5:39pm Irwin:

Hanktwo: Eight pseudonyms today. Congrats!
  5:39pm Parq:

My standing disagreement with listeners who hate contemp-country remains in place.
  5:40pm hankthree:

I live in Nashville. It's really hard to like bad contemporary country.
  5:41pm Spencer:

Oh man, forgot about this song! Its a goodie.
  5:41pm Irwin:

I stand with Parq against the sneering hipsters.
  5:43pm hankfour:

I'm not a hipster. I like all different kinds of music, but there is a limit there. You can't like everything.
  5:44pm Ike:

I just think a lot of it sounds overcooked and overproduced, including those two songs. But that Pell Mell song was fantastic.
  5:45pm hankfive:

Not only is it overproduced, but most of the contemporary country these days is more based of pop and rock than country roots
  5:47pm hanksmom:

everything other than the turner and tomlinson songs that I heard to day were very enjoyable!
  5:50pm Irwin:

Amanda remains my favorite country artist.
  5:50pm Katya:

"Cookie Train, I love you, baby." Rock, rock, rock.
  5:51pm Parq:

Amanda trascends genre.
  5:52pm teqnowl:

danni! we gettin on the cookie train tonight! picken up a box of oreos on the way home. rockin roll lady!
  5:52pm Katya:

"... because I'm a rock-and-roll lady." Amanda is fantastic!!
  5:53pm arnold lane:

I agree she does. I love the lost and found, dated antiquated quality of her recordings
  5:55pm 7pointedstar:

awsome teqnowl !
  5:55pm Marshall Stacks:

Irwin, did Mr. Turns happen to record the poem immortalized on http://www.lilgoat.com/TShirt7.htm on any of your MT CDs? The poem itself is illegible, but the title.... Words fail me.
  5:58pm Vicki:

ha! this track is great - just finding it online
  11:21pm Michele B.:

By the time we catch your offerings, you're probably tucked in your bunk! Oh, but we do appreciate! Koichi Sugii is marvelous. Weekly thanks..from deepest, darkest state with no name.
