Listener comments!

  Wed. 11/11/09 3:05pm PMD:

Nice links...
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:06pm Janet H:

Am I the only one here?
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Janet, you are not alone.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:09pm PMD:

I was here, then was gone, and now I'm back. I'll be leaving and returning, but always listening.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:10pm Lizardner Dave:

Good job with the links Irwin. I hope a lot of folks use them.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:18pm PMD:

Does Amanda sing a veteran related song?
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:21pm Ike:

I honor our military too. And I wish that they'd get back the jobs outsourced to vicious overpaid mercenary organizations with no oversight like Blackwater/Xe.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:22pm Janet H:

oh i'm so enjoying this!
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:23pm iup:

Ike, you are now property of the government ;)
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:23pm Lizardner Dave:

Irwin, were you at the R Stevie Moore show on Saturday afternoon? Thought I recognized you there but wasn't sure if it was you or not and didn't want to introduce myself without being sure.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:29pm Irwin:

LD: Yep, I was there, enjoying. Sitting at a table near the back. With no cocktail in front.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:29pm Parq:

"Freedom Is Not Free" -- it also is not easily gotten back once it's voluntarily surrendered in the name of security.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:44pm LIzardner Dave:

Damn, it was you. I'll say hi next time. I was a few tables over, also beer-less as I thought there was wait service in the back or at least a minimum to sit down. Oh well, saved six bucks and a few calories.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:45pm Irwin:

I'm drink-less these days. Got tired of the daily habit. But the less I drink, the more there is for everyone else.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:47pm trs:

"Free to do what?" by The Tennessee Twin answers its own question in song really well
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's very green of you, Irwin.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:52pm Irwin:

DCE: Saving the planet while saving my liver.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:52pm PMD:

Wow, haven't heard Traffic in a while.
  Wed. 11/11/09 3:56pm BSI:

  Wed. 11/11/09 3:57pm Dr. Churchill:

Jaw jaw is better than war war.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:06pm Lizardner Dave:

Great taste? Less filling!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:07pm Bozo Barrett:

No Hannah Montana for the sailors? Such an phoney American name from such a phoney American family. What a tradition. God Bless America!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:09pm Stuart Troutman:

is he trying to sound like Neil Young?
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:13pm PMD:

Irwin, is this the version that plays on country music stations? (Private Malone)
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:15pm Irwin:

Is there another? That's where I first heard it.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:16pm Colombe:

I wish there were a separate planet, like Mars, for all the people who like to make war. They could kill each other to their hearts content and leave the rest of us alone.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:16pm PMD:

It's just that it sounds less country here. Did a quick search and no, that's the only one.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:19pm Lizardner Dave:

Yes Colombe, except then Earth would be emptied. Nice of you to suggest a mass elimination of people who don't suit your worldview though. No war ever got started over that issue.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:27pm Laura L:

Just tuning in--interrupted by work--how sweet the sound!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Get Bach to where you once belonged.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sorry, that was SO lame.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:29pm Dr. Lee:

It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:33pm annie:

irwin, not looking to jinx anything here, but this is an especially moving show.. thanks...
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:37pm PMD:

Hi Annie!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yes, this Decemberists tune is very apropos. Also very catchy!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:47pm Ghost of Ricky Medlock:

My GF and I often argue about the Decemberists, but we can both always agree that Picaresque is a good ass album!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:48pm Parq:

Dr Lee, it would seem that we already have. What Annie said.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:49pm Janet H:

i'm still here.... i've been just in the background listening
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm fearful of what a good "ass" album implies!
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:51pm annie:

pmd!!!! had a wonderful lunch!! dessert was chocolate bread pudding with death by chocolate ice cream and chocolate syrup... james had the whipped cream served to him on a little dish.. nice little rest-our-aunt.
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:53pm Ghost of Ricky Medlock:

One set of sexy Colin Meloy jams...let your mind wander...
  Wed. 11/11/09 4:59pm PMD:

mmmmmmmmmmm.............. though I can't imagine the sugar crash after that.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:02pm Sugar Daddy:

Don't do the treatin' if you can't take the beatin'.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:02pm Janet H:

I like!
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:06pm PMD:

Sugar Daddy, words of wisdom.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:12pm Spankyflop:

I'm waiting to here the Zombie's Butcher's Tale...
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:16pm Janet H:

good one!
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:18pm annie:

irwin, may i copy and paste that list to facebook?
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:20pm Irwin:

Annie: Of course! With my encouragement and appreciation.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:21pm GS:

I've got a great live version of this, but I never heard this
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:21pm thanks!!:

  Wed. 11/11/09 5:22pm GS:

Love the old Calypso
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:23pm GS:

By the way, Goldfrapp rules. There's tons of good songs. Seventh Tree is the least good album.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:29pm Lizardner Dave:

Just posted a link to the playlist noting that it contained the charity links.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:31pm Lizardner Dave:

Forgot to add - thanks for the idea Annie.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:35pm annie:

seems the right thing to do.. esp. in light of the fort hood thing
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:42pm Janet H:

i just had to remind the hubby that the post office is closed today.....hey i almost went there today too...lol
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:49pm Lizardner Dave:

Irwin, thanks for a great show today. Gotta head home now, will check out the last 10 mins on archive.
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:50pm annie:

i'm clicking "i like this" irwin
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:52pm NS Andy:

I think we've had enough with the gunslinging
  Wed. 11/11/09 5:57pm Laura L:

I bet BJ Snowden knows it's Remembrance Day in Canada today.
  Thu. 11/19/09 6:02pm Peanut Gallery:

Fabulous show Irwin, and gee, "peace through strength"... is that just your opinion or do you hold it because that's the way the world works?!

Thanks for this show and all that you do,
-- Major S.K.Barton, USA Retired
  Thu. 11/19/09 6:06pm Irwin:

I presume your question is rhetorical, Major Barton. Thanks for your service and for your listenership.
  Thu. 11/19/09 7:47pm DG:

My brother-in-law Vernon was a hard hat diver, one of the most dangerous jobs in the US Navy. He was injured during the January 1944 invasion of Anzio, Italy. He told the story of the German Stukas, dive bombers, who flew down the Tiber River valley and appeared suddenly in the Anzio Harbor. He was underwater setting charges on sunken ships to clear the way for landing craft to assault the beach. His ship's captain, at terrible risk, decided to up anchor and steam away in evasive maneuvers, ripping Vernon from the wreckage and dragging him by his breathing hose behind the ship. Vernon was slammed repeatedly against the side of the ship, but was hauled aboard alive. His back was wrenched.

When I was a child I remember that he often slept in a pallet on the floor because of his injuries.

Vernon Hammond R.I.P. You did your job.
