Listener comments!

  3:00pm ...:

Hi Irwin!
  3:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Helllllo, Irwin!
  3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

God damnit, are YOU Irwin, you despicable ellipsis???!! You have to be!
  3:01pm G:

Dut Dude (or Dudette) does it again!
  3:01pm Carmichael:

Irwin! And hi everyone else.
  3:01pm G:

Dot, not Due, for typo haters. It's been a frazzled day.
  3:02pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I have yuck taste in mouth
  3:02pm G:

Dut not Due. Doodoo.
  3:02pm Smoking Gun:

Or is it YOU!! Matt from so-called "Springfield"!! This is a false flag attack! Read about it on ellipsisirwinboarddemolition.org!!
  3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Come to WFMU then! With the yuck taste in your ears, you'll forget all about the mouth taste!
  3:03pm G:

Dot Dude aka Sean Daily Syndrome Prevention System
  3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Frazzled day, is it boiling where you are, G? The A/C has been down in my office for days, it's really hot in here.
  3:05pm blackgreen13:

earlier today, I had yuck taste in my soul. Thanks, FMU, for that non-yuck-soul feeling
  3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Although I love when Sean does come in long after the show's begun, he writes "Oh and not even remotely first comment! Woo hoo!"
  3:06pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

bass synthesizer pedal--I got one a few weeks ago and now can hear it in any number of pop songs.
  3:07pm G:

Not that hot in NYC, but have been running around constantly since Monday, especially with extra no-notice day in Manhattan by a former student who is now a TV presenter on Deutsche Welle's international service out of Berlin...
  3:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh shit there it is again
  3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Love that sound, I wondered what made that sound. I thought it was a guitar pedal, though there probably is a pedal for guitars and bass that does a similar effect.
  3:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

you can run a guitar through it sound like Tom Morello if you want
  3:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

but I really had fun with it when I hooked up a mic and started screaming
  3:11pm Alliteration Addict:

They could trade names and work as Matthew Merritt and Stephin Sweet.
  3:12pm Yoko:

I've also had a lot of fun when I hooked up a mike and started screaming.
  3:13pm Little Known Fact:

Screamers have more fun.

Ask Amanda.
  3:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

alas, I can't do it with a straight face, and thus my screams are not "art"
  3:13pm Carmichael:

@DCE: I do that all the time. Hook a mic up to my Boss ME-50 floor unit and start pressing pedals. It's a lot of fun.
  3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@LKF: Winning bumper sticker/T-shirt idea!
  3:14pm postmanpaul:

Hey Urwin! Hey commentators! So, what can I bring to the table? Well, I'm cutting into a slab of limestone 5x8x2" with a "round" ended chisel the name of my son, Tom. And talking typo it's in Frankfurter CAPS, overlapping. Ee's orf to Landan Toun soon to do art; it will remind him what is name is - he will probably use it as an ashtray :)
  3:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

do you do noise shows for yourself? ;)
  3:15pm Carmichael:

Yep. I like to understand all of my electronic options. You don't know what you don't know.
  3:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I seldom know what I do know. but that's another story. Hey, the postman is a chiseler!
  3:16pm blackgreen13:

@postmanpaul when you said you were carving your sons name into limestone, an ashtray was not the first image to appear (for me)
  3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Early Lord Kitchener!
  3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes, baby cool off this fire in here!
Got any ice?
  3:23pm v k:

this calypso tune reminds me of an amazing calypso radio program on 91.5 in NYC on fri and sat nites from 7-10pm - Trevor Wilkins is the DJ - guy is a hoot
  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes...a slip-n-slide with you would also be pretty nice right now, Mira.
  3:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that song get you a bit worked up, Matt?
  3:25pm Bodega Man:

love Trevor Wilkins program. I I'm always wanting to hang out in the studio during the program, imagine it's pretty fun.
  3:26pm postmanpaul:

Yeah blackgreen. It is recessed, hollowed-out, concave, nice and chunky and round - not cut classically 'V' shaped. I figure it will hold at least six cigarettes, simultaneously.
  3:28pm Mike East:

@v k - I catch that sometimes. I'm not even really into calypso, but that guy is fun to listen to.
  3:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

new guy next to me in cube's FIRST EVER exposure to Amanda
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Why Don't We Do It In The Circus World!
  3:31pm Jennique:

I was wondering when Amanda was gonna show up.
  3:31pm Inference:

@DCE: Matt was busy searching google images for Mira Cook while typing with one hand.
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@New Guy: Welcome to an Empire of Screech and Cookies.
  3:32pm Adamms:

That loop is cra-zay! Cave Beatles do battle, new thinks.
  3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

(he hasn't made a sound yet but I know he can hear it!)
  3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, Inference ;)
  3:33pm jason:

nice you've tapped into the Mira Cook! She has a great cassette in the fmu library
  3:34pm What's up Boo-Boo?:

what did I miss?
  3:34pm jan:

Irwin- I was under the impression that long ago the Amanda vein had petered out, yet to my ears, I think I am hearing all new releases. Can you explain?
  3:34pm postmanpaul:

Ah, (as opposed to aaargh) an Amanda moment.
  3:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  3:34pm Inference:

anything that happened, W U B B
  3:36pm righto:

hah second "song" i ever heard on wfmu, just tuned in from Germany :D
  3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Guten Abend, righto!

Was the Amanda the 2nd song you've ever heard on here?
  3:42pm savory c:

What are signs and symptoms of vocal cord polyps?
• hoarseness
• a "rough" voice
• a "scratchy" voice
• thy name is Amanda
  3:43pm righto:

Guten Abend! Yes Amanda was the 2nd song i ever heard on here! never really heard anything like it on any station. I got here from a youtuvbe post under a Fingerprintz video
  3:45pm Whitney 3:

I am late on the scene here...
  3:47pm jonny:

im a rasslin' man
  3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@righto: :)
That's why we're all here: "never really heard anything like it"! May you make several more new discoveries on here!
  3:50pm postmanpaul:

I got here under a favourable endorsement from a drunk in a pub.
  3:51pm Pub Drunks:

We know plenty. Just not about how to handle our own lives.
  3:51pm righto:

Thank you, Matt! :)
  3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@postman: Wonder if that bloke is still listening, and which shows he enjoys.
@righto: Bitte schön!
  3:57pm postmanpaul:

Yeah. I suppose you know where you're coming from Pub Drunk, just gotta figure out where you're heading.
@ Matt, has he got the stamina? I'm not convinced.
  3:59pm Dave B:

  4:00pm savory c:

well-oiled soakers.. the whole lot of ya!
  4:01pm Whitney 3:

Sorry I had to get another beer...
  4:03pm postmanpaul:

Hey Irwin, please forgive me and my dyslexia. Have just noticed I have spelt you bad, and not for the first time... had better check the spelling of my son's name.
  4:10pm G:

@pmp: I thought your "Urwin" was in reference to his archaic status at FMU.
  4:12pm Randy in NC:

The PIX Penthouse Party!
  4:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

K Rock was fun while it lasted
  4:13pm jaycjay:

@postmanpaul, I just assumed you were spelling that way because you're just coming from Pub Drunk.
  4:13pm What's up Boo-Boo?:

PIX was great 1978-80? I remember the day it ended
  4:13pm Lizardner Dave:

92.7 was WLIR before it was WDRE.
  4:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

WWE was WWF before it was WWE
  4:19pm Minnesota Jeff:

Wow, this is fantastic!
  4:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my tongue was also pink before it turned brown
  4:19pm Lizardner Dave:

And it was the WWWF before that.
  4:19pm Wendy del Formaggio:

DCE: Yeah. The WWF said to the WWF, "We were the WWF first! You have to be something else!" Thus, WWE.
  4:20pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I really like this Karen Carpenter thing. Wow.
  4:20pm What's up Boo-Boo?:

PIX Two for Tuesdays!
  4:20pm andaloudog in DC:

So good. Great day to be a Carpenters fan.
  4:21pm A Great Many:

Damn, just got schooled by Smells Like Karen Carpenter... that's pro.
  4:21pm Lizardner Dave:

That was great.
  4:22pm G:

Never thought I'd hear terrible tim here!!!! Normally he's on Staten Island public access. I have his CD.
  4:22pm G:

Tim's a former SI Cable TV worker
  4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Wendy,DCE: I thought they changed it to "Entertainment" because they legally couldn't keep claiming it was a "sports" federation.
  4:26pm chris:

I think Scott Williams just pulled a muscle.
  4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: I MISSED that! Is Terrible Tim a good listen?
  4:26pm WWE:

Entertaining suckers is a sport. A profitable one.
  4:27pm chris:

sorry, I'm listening a bit delayed... listening now to smells like karen carpenter
  4:28pm Carmichael:

Hurry up, Chris!
  4:29pm chris:

:-) listening as fast as I can...
  4:29pm G:

Depends on your taste, Matt. Tim's definitely an outsider musician who often stays outside because he tends to bicker withother local people or write satiric songs about them. Most of his songs are FCC unfriendly (bodily functions, sexual activity, etc.). Check terribletim.com
  4:30pm Lizardner Dave:

@Matt - no, it was because the Worl Wildlife Fund won their lawsuit and Vince McMahon decided he wanted to branch out into the movie business so the term "entertainment" was a better branding fit.

@WWE that sounds like a great front page slogan for wfmu.org.
  4:31pm Andrea on the M62:

completely agree bout the strokes. happy heard you say it, sir!
  4:31pm G:

Rich is "kicking them in the Shins"
  4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Thanks.
@L.Dave: Ah, and I'm sure "branching out" is a convenient excuse to comply with a lawsuit.
  4:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is weird/great
  4:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

so this guy was on acid at the time, I'm guessing
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Mumford & Sons--a lot of people keep bashing them on here, but what was their "big" song? I've never heard anything by them, none of their titles are familiar. I may have seen them in a RS mag but I've avoided commercial radio pretty successfully.
  4:35pm Woo:

Yes, this is a good song.
  4:35pm Andrea on the M62:

yikes it sounds like something wrong is going on when he is saying it
  4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: This is Remix gold--mash up London Lee with The Zombies "I Love You", delightfully messed up! Maybe mix it "Hello, I Love You" as well!
  4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

don't know, Matt, but some joker at work was hyping them to me, and since he was, I think they must suck. He said something about them using "Shakespearean quatrains" in their songs.
  4:37pm The Strokes:

Come on. This Rodeo Queens song is better than maybe 1 or 2 of our songs.
  4:38pm Detroit Mac:

i love you, too.
  4:38pm Whitney 3:

What's burning?
  4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I love Mac-n-Cheese
  4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: The anti-dorsement of a particular person is sometimes a great warning sign. "I've been told to like this by a smart-ass corporate journalist who knows big words!"
  4:40pm Bad Ronald:

I'll take a vodka and quatrains please...
  4:40pm Ike:

@MfS, you couldn't have heard Mumford on any D.C. stations anyway, even if there was anything tolerable on the dial there. They're big on indie rock stations like KEXP and "AAA" stations like WTMD in Towson and WXPN in Philly and WFUV, and the now-defunct WRXP.
  4:41pm Whitney 3:

NO its pate chinois burning
  4:41pm Detroit Mac:

Give me cheesy music all the time. Will start following you - Mr. Russo
  4:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I would've liked to hear Danny Bonadouche!
  4:42pm don:

what/!?!? horrendous?! play that danny bonaduce shit...
  4:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this guy reminds me of Evan Dando
  4:47pm K:

TIL Discovering Amanda brought tears to Irwin's eyes.
  4:51pm Detroit Mac:

Listening to Irwin is always an exercise in denial.
  4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

All listeners trust that Irwin's complete and utter lack of commitment to that trust will form a trusting bond of affection for this unaffectable DJ.
  4:52pm CreepGuyYou Like:

self-denial indeed :)
  4:54pm J J:

Nice one.
  4:55pm Old WFMU Manager:

This Springsteen's going to be HUGE! Replace the sixth Yes track of this afternoon with something from this "The Wild, The Innocent" album!
  4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey J J!
  4:56pm THE LORD:

  4:57pm K:

What teen movie/television soundtracks are this band on?
  4:59pm THE LORD:

  5:01pm Ike:

LOL @ The Almighty
  5:03pm J J:

Ohhh, WFMU has seriously been lacking in yodeling of late.
  5:04pm Detroit Mac:

Gay Mountaineer Yodeling. Made my day!
  5:05pm G:

Brokeback Yodel.
  5:12pm Carmichael:

Now we're talkin' ....
  5:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Syd! I don't think I've ever heard Irwin play Syd before.

And if you don't like Syd...BARRETT!
  5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Der Christer Schytts is pretty good, I recognized that name!
  5:19pm G:

Who is Dan Galt?
  5:23pm FRED:

Is this too sick to pray? Me no speaking spanish
  5:29pm hamburger:

good evening folks chaps peoples
  5:30pm the glowing one:

  5:32pm Pedo Bear:

playing with 300 boys. I approve.
  5:33pm hamburger:

You would O-D P.B.
  5:35pm the glowing one:

now Irwin has to be fair and play Little Girls by Oingo Boingo, too
  5:40pm NAMBLA:

@Pedo: Ixnay on the oyzbay.
  5:43pm Fred A.:

Shine on my Shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5:43pm kat330:

That last group, All Good Dreamers Pass This Way is a Joni Mitchell lyric from "Last Time I Saw Richard" on "Blue."
  5:45pm blackgreen13:

thanks kat330
  5:45pm G:

For the young: This is the movie that the number "That's Entertainment" is from
  5:48pm Laura L:

This must be the part where he's protectin' her.
  5:49pm the glowing one:

aawww, calling adult women "kid"/"kiddo"
  5:49pm Carmichael:

Dang, a meeting took me away from Pete Stampfel. I've always been fond of Beer Cans on the Moon.
  5:50pm G:

they were so sophisticated then. dig the damon runyon lingo, baby
  5:53pm blackgreen13:

stuff was so modern back then
  5:54pm kat330:

@blackgreen 13: Just the facts, ma'am/sir!
  5:56pm Sam Spade:

  5:58pm Aloha Steve and Danno:

Book 'em!
  5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Pleasant kimono dance to close the show out, Irwin! And great interview with Rich Russo as well--glad I know about him now!

Have a good night everyone!
  5:59pm ...:

Thanks Irwin.
  5:59pm Sam Spade:

You're dotty.
