Listener comments!

  12:07pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hey Irene,
Great to have you back, hello to all your wonderful listeners, hi to Van, Kat, Matt, DCE
  12:10pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Went for a six km run this afternoon with a playlist of music you have played over the last few months, your choice of wonderful sounds got me through the pain, Irene!
  12:10pm KP:

Sorry we missed you yesterday Irene. Did see you make grand entrance but lost track.
  12:12pm Van in DC:

hi Irene, welcome back! Hi Sean & KP and everyone!
  12:17pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This a little beaut of a track, hi to KP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Irene:

Hi Everybody! Good to be back. Playing a few of my favorites from last year on today's show. Sorry I didn't get to see many of you at the Benefit Rec Fair yesterday. I had limited time to be there but hope you all had fun.
  12:19pm duke:

This Ablaye Cissoko + Volker Goetze cut is great!
  12:24pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Ah, the wonderful Becca Stevens, I am in seventh heaven!
  12:28pm DCE:

good day, Irene!
Avatar 12:31pm kat330:

HNY, Irene! Hi, folks!
  12:32pm Van in DC:

Certainly a lot to choose from, from 2012, just from all the wonderful live performances!
  12:33pm KP:

Happy New year Van and Sean, have to tell you even a fleeting glimpse of Irene is worth crawling to the outback of Brooklyn.
Avatar 12:35pm kat330:

Oh, hi, Sean! Just scrolled back and see you shouted out a preemptive hello -- that was prescient since I *was* listening from the get-go.
  12:36pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Irene, has a date been set for this year's annual pledge?
Avatar 12:39pm kat330:

@Irene: On that same note, did you ever see / get notice of our pledge from December? I think you have to proactively go look at a database somewhere when pledges come in "off-marathon" or special fundraising times.
  12:43pm Van in DC:

Someday I hope to make it to that record fair.
Avatar 12:43pm kat330:

Me, too, Van.
  12:44pm KP:

Listening on two iPhones. New one is a different system and proves a nice two-and-half second delay. Like real tape echo. Perfect for Irene music.
  12:46pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Nowhere Man was one of the many, many great tracks you played, I think I was around the 4 km mark when this track came over the headphones, sounds even nicer now with a frothing pint of ale right at this moment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice little nowhere tune here! Goes with the wet overcast weather well.

Hello Irene! Hello kat, Van, Sean, KP, DCE, duke and other Trudelites!
Avatar 12:48pm kat330:

Happy Monday, Matt!
  12:50pm Van in DC:

Howdy Matt!
  12:50pm mahrbel:

Greetings from Corvallis, OR...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Happy Mondays are possible mainly because of Irene--oh, and the band! ;)
Avatar 12:52pm kat330:

Hi, mahrbel! Hope you are having great, sunny weather to send eastward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi mahrbel! How's the weather in Corvallis? It might be similar to the East Coast weather today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Irene:

Sean, the next Marathon starts Monday March 2nd and runs through Sunday the 17th.

Kat, thanks for mentioning it. I haven't been on since then so I am grateful for the pledge.
  12:53pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Mahrbel
  12:55pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Thanks Irene, is that March 4th, it's down in my diary, Spring Training, WFMU marathon pledge, life doesn't get any better!
Avatar 12:57pm kat330:

@Irene: You are most welcome!
@Sean: Are you a competitive runner?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Irene:

Ah, you're right Sean. The Marathon starts March 4th. I have March 2nd in my brain because that's my father-in-law's 90th birthday. Gotta fly back from the San Francisco area right after that to make it to WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank you Sean, just noticed your preemptive hello to me as well! Nice how everyone you greeted came on to this playlist today!

The regular Record Fair starts earlier this year, sometime in September.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Happy Nonagenarian Status to your father-in-law! Hope you all have a good time in San Fran!
  1:02pm KP:

Good morning, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Good morning, now afternoon, KP!
  1:03pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, I used to run half marathons as part of a running club, advancing age has made the choice of distance a more manageable 10 km which is now for fun.
Avatar 1:04pm kat330:

PCP is an apt acronym as these cherubic cello sounds can be likened to angel dust.
Avatar 1:05pm kat330:

@Sean: Ah. And I realize I misconstrued your "spring training" as something personal when, probably, you meant baseball? ;)
  1:11pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, yes, the beautiful game, once you hear the thwack of a ball hitting the glove you can almost smell the BBQ, hot dogs, chilled beer and warm weather!
Avatar 1:13pm kat330:

You are in the wrong country, Sean! Wanna swap places?
  1:16pm KP:

Maybe for some Matf but I'm just getting ready to go to work and WFMU is going with me.
  1:18pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, absolutely, Indiana is a nice State?
Avatar 1:19pm kat330:

Heh, well, it has its natural pluses but its political minuses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Great acoustic shredding!
Avatar 1:23pm kat330:

This entire set has been shredding it, speaking of natural pluses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Matt from Springfield:

This music is a natural plus, and a natural high!
  1:29pm Chris from DC:

Great set here.
  1:32pm DCE:

lovely sounds...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Chris! Totally agree.
Avatar 1:33pm kat330:

Here are some Gaudi stars in a black sky: apod.nasa.gov...
  1:39pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Totally agree, Chris, great set, this track we are listening to is another cracker
  1:40pm Chris from DC:

Hey Matt and Sean. Nice to be able to listen more this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Spectacular imagery! Like how the infrared captures heat trails.
  1:42pm wild neil:

Amazing show, Irene!!!!
Avatar 1:44pm kat330:

Yikes! Joe said he'd correct that! It's "Knob Knee," INDIANA (not NY)! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Now, instead of saying someone will "shit bricks", maybe the next step up should be that they'll "shit cosmic bullets"! Woah - gives a Donovan/Marc Bolan twist to it! ;)
Avatar 1:45pm kat330:

But thank you for the shout out, Irene!! :) We were happy to know enough about the programming this past December to actually designate various shows for portions of our pledge. in 2011, we were greenhorns.
Avatar 1:47pm BSI:

[strolls in confidently, nods at those gathered and already seated, the barest of smiles betraying an air of madness, which spreads like blue vapor throughout the room...]
Avatar 1:48pm kat330:

A beautiful blue it is, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh! I remember and LOVED this Anais Mitchell from earlier in the year!

Afternoon, BSI! Your vapor is most electric today!
  1:49pm v k:

delighting in your 2012 favorites, especially Abdoulaye track; your favorites quickly become mine as well; Happy New Year Irene - glad you're feeling better
  1:51pm Van in DC:

Greatly enjoying the show today Irene. Working with a coworker this afternoon so not able to pay attention to the comments.
  1:52pm wild neil:

I wish my ship would come in...then we could buy sandwhich meat for a change...
  2:00pm Van in DC:


  2:02pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

The Joy Askew album was in my top ten for 2012, anyone fancies listing their top 5 from Irene's shows from last year? A difficult task maybe.
Avatar 2:04pm kat330:

Ms. Askew's pipes remind me of Edie Brickell's -- lovely.
  2:10pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Ok, I am going to have a stab:
Past card-Steven Wilson
This Woman's work-Theo Bleckmann
I Bleed-World Famous Headliners
You can fight-Becca Stevens
Loose Change-Neil Halstead,
  2:11pm v k:

top 5 albums 2012: alt-J; Sigur Ros; Lord Huron; Grizzly Bear; Rufus Wainwright
  2:17pm Van in DC:

Eliza Rickman, Marissa Nadler, Theo Bleckman, Sharon Van Etten, Nerdkween off the top of my head for Top 5 for me
  2:19pm Van in DC:

Oh yeah! Claire! And also Meg Baird!
  2:20pm Van in DC:

Top 5 is just frustratingly impossible methinks :)
Avatar 2:21pm kat330:

Speaking of birthday song, what is your month/day birthday, Irene, if I might ask?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Irene:

Oh, I think a Top 10 is nearly impossible as well, Van!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! Sharon Van Etten!
  2:26pm Julie:

ooh cool cover!
  2:28pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Theo Bleckmann, thank you so much, Irene. Yes, listing a top five raises the bar far too high
  2:28pm MIKE TP:

first place i heard SHARON was on STANS SHOW . STAN doesnt do playlists so i called n he happily obliged with the info. fmu djs are really nice. love you all especially IRENES VIBE
  2:29pm Roberto:

What the world needs now is more dudes covering Kate Bush songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes Julie! Like Roberto said, Kate is amazing, but a guy's take on Kate is welcome.
  2:31pm Mike East:

@Roberto - I used to be in a band that covered all Kate Bush tunes. It was all dudes. Never made it to playing a gig, but the rehearsals sounded pretty good.
Avatar 2:33pm kat330:

"Swap our places" "Running up that hill" -- Kate fits well w/ Sean & I switching locales, although he'd probably prefer I actually were from NY state and not Indiana. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike East: You should have at least recorded a demo EP! Sounds incredible!
  2:43pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This is a rather marvellous track, @Kat, does Indiana follow the norm of most States where quality beer is brewed, if so, I'm there, plus most cities and towns will have Minor League, heck, I'm booking my flight!!
  2:43pm Mike East:

I know, Matt. Especially because the lead singer (who's idea it was) owned and lived in a recording studio.
Avatar 2:46pm kat330:

AAMOF, Sean, the New Albanian Brewing Companyis a rather well-respected local micro-brewery I believe. Here's info: www.newalbanian.com
Avatar 2:47pm kat330:

Did I hear May 12?? I was busy searching for that brewery link and not listening as closely as I should have, Irene. :,
  2:48pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

My head has just exploded!! Kidding, another stonking track of awesomeness
Avatar 2:48pm kat330:

Oh, and Sean, the Louisville Bats are just across the river -- this area's made for you! Now, what's Bristol got for me?
  2:48pm don:

May I add Sera Cahoone's Deer Creek Canyon for honorable mention, please?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Irene:

You'll find it on Facebook. Its the 30th.
  2:50pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Thanks Kat, on my list of things to do before I croak is to attend The Great American Beer festival which takes place in Denver each year. The list of brews is insane!!
Avatar 2:51pm kat330:

@Irene: This has been a spectacular retrospective of 2012 and start to 2013 from you! Thanks for reminding me so clearly why we pledge to your program!
  2:52pm Van in DC:

Oh, hey Julie!

As always, wonderful show Irene, so many thanks! Ready to bravely face the rest of the week now! :)
  2:54pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, what has Bristol got, some decent pubs, some great parks, a bit of history and a great place to cycle
  2:56pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Yes, Kat, you nailed it on the head, thank you so much, Irene, a great look back on what you have caressed our ears with,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Irene:

Thanks for checking in everybody! Catch you next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Lovely show Irene, thanks! Glad to hear some of the great tracks of last year again.
Have a good day everyone!
Avatar 2:59pm kat330:

History parks cycles -- got it! :)

Stepping outside on a "goodbye Matt" mini-set it seems. Bye, Matt and, everyone, have a wonderful remainder of your day!
  3:00pm Stephanie:

Excellent show Irene!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I'll return the "goodbye Matt" favor and wish a "goodbye Kat", by Matt from Springfield!
