What about Fountains of Wayne?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:17pm Clark Barr:

Were the Fountains Wayne-napped?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:18pm Caryn:

The name of the FoW song and album are owned by a third party. Intellectual property law states Irwin would have to pay royalties if he mentions either. So he's just gonna play the song, but not write the info down anywhere.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:20pm Clark Barr:

Which third party? Libertairan, Working Families, Independence, Green or Birthday?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:21pm Caryn:

I'm unable to answer, as they also own the rights to their own name, and I ain't paying for that!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:21pm hamburger:

@Caryn: What if he wrote the title backwards?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:22pm rrg:

Or in Pig Latin?

@hamburger: or maybe in anagram form?

Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:24pm rrg:

Well, put that title "Go Hippie" in the playlist, Mr. DJ.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:24pm Caryn:

Now let's try to determine whether that was the real song title, or an anagram of it...

Hey. I have that song ("Track 1") many times in my iTunes.

So many covers of it.

Gosh, I like The Inflatable Boy Clams version of Track 1 more than this!

Some artists call it "Track 01". But it's really the same song.

OH NO! Kevin Ayers, truly a classic round these parts... :(

Porridge is my usual breakfast fare too. But I prepare it myself.

@Clark: Also a great one! They actually credited a 1926 song the background harmony was based off of. I've only ever had digital tracks of the IBCs so not sure which was the original "track 1".

I bet Irwin just wrote "Track 1" because it really said: ติดตามหนึ่ง
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:51pm rrg:

Now, that's clever, Mr. Lowry.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Prob true, Mr. Lowry! Brian Turner has often typed "Track _" or "Untitled", some allege because he has a bin of assorted unlabeled CDs he's pulling out!

is Exene singing on Rank and File?

I hope the archive version of this show includes the false start. I will feel cheated (on behalf of the people of the future) if it doesn't.

Hey hamburger! And, monkey butlers don't speak, another plus for that profession!

@rrg: Yes. And then some.

Awesome, Planet Tyler! Was that the great diner that's no longer there?

'Los' Yo La Tengo - ??...

I was just kidding, of course. If I knew any of the volunteers, I'm sure they would be some of my closest friends. Heck, I've even sort of volunteered myself!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:02pm Carmichael:

This Moon Duo is cosmically awesome, Irwin.
  Wed. 2/20/13 4:03pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

Moon Duo sounds like Suicide & Spacemen 3 in a good mood together...which is pretty good...

...just hard to believe...
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:05pm Planet Tyler:

@Matt - oy vey it was soooo long ago.... I do remember saying something on the air to get people to pledge though during Scott's show - something like "Don't push your Grandma and her wheelchair out the window, Pledge to WFMU instead!"

"WFMU: It'd be practically murder to push us out the window!"

She sings the blues!

Just mention that it's tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. That usually does it.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:09pm rrg:

That's fine because I HAVE the blues.

She sure can wail the blues, that Claire.

The Knitting Factory is in Brooklyn?

Used to be down there below Canal Street, but I'm SO far out of date. I think the last time I was there, Kramer was the "artist in residence". That was (a) a long time, and (b) for only a short time.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:14pm Caryn:

@hamburger: until you reach old age. Then it becomes ok again.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:15pm hamburger:

@rrg - yeah - used to be on Leonard st., I think. They moved to Bklyn a couple years ago. Haven't been to the new location.

This pooping discussion makes me think of the two journalists who just started a big furore by writing a story that was just about taking a long-distance bus trip and pooping your pants in your seat.

Always, Caryn? Or just because it was chicken?

i have two clementines. You can have one if you want, DCE.

Chrysalis is correct! He also just released an even newer single called "Broken Bridges." I haven't heard it yet, though.

Chicken is in my future too!

What are the chances of that?

hey, I got a clementine too. the playlist is orange. oh boy. it's happening isn't it?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:35pm rrg:

Don't get too close to that Iron Curtain, Caryn. I heard it might be radioactive.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:36pm Irwin:

That's not a clementine. It's a squirrel in a clementine costume. Watch its behavior. Not clementine-like at all.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:37pm Caryn:

@rrg: oh, we already got plenty of radioactivity during Chernobyl. We're all full up. But since I shouldn't have citrus with my meds, I'll send this clementine back around DCE's way. Before any of the radioactivity rubs off on it.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:38pm Matt from Springfield:

So the squirrels are making their clementine costumes from the playlist background? Be careful of the next orange fruit you see...
  Wed. 2/20/13 4:38pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

I know I said already, Caryn
- remember yogurt has living things that are good to help w/ antibiotix killing both the bad & good things
- & miso soup is very nourishing, fermented, & I think soothing to the tum-tum - altho' has a lot of sodium (salty)...
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:38pm Caryn:

@Irwin: luckily, being so close to Russia, Boris and Natasha can come take care of it. I hear they have experience with squirrels. And moose, apparently. Though not a lot of success, I have surmised.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:40pm rrg:

Is citrus the problem, or grapefruit in particular?

I was surprised to find out about grapefruit's peculiar (and not widely-known) interactions with some medications.

Maybe that clementine is fine for you. It will certainly be tastier than a grapefruit.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:40pm Caryn:

@RRN63: yoghurt in the fridge, miso soup not available. But taking a pill once a day to keep the stomach ok.

Good that there is virtually always some legit jazz here in the weekly Weds-afternoon genre surfing. Boy, has jazz's stock unfairly fallen on the mainstream market in the last half century. (Check the sales figures.) It's turned into America's homegrown classical music -- in other words, everyone says it's great, but the hump of the bellcurve never listens to it.

The tangerine and clementine are different, but related citrus fruits. Clementines are a type of mandarin orange, and are almost always seedless. Tangerines are not mandarins, and have seeds.

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears. It's a world of hopes and a world of fears. There's so much that we share that it's time we're aware: it's a small world after all!

Neil was hard-pressed for time that day...

Did he sing with Crosbyer, Stillser and Nasher?

- Yeah - Jazz a tax write-off for labels - except for Diana Krall & Norah Jones mebee
...America's Classical - exactly right...

- WWOZ is much worth Bookmarking imho...

tangerines are also harder to peel, in my experience. My daughter gets mad at me if I get tangerines.

SoundHound doesn't know this. Neither does Shazam.

How good can it be?

Drop a dime before I walk away
Anytime you want, I'll gladly play
Money feeds my music machine
Now listen while I play my green tangerine
Listen while I play my green tangerine!

The chemicals in grapefruit that inhibit drugs are also (in smaller quantities) in other citrus fruit and in apples.
But my pills interact with all kinds of stuff. Have to avoid zinc, iron, potassium, sunlight, citrus,... And calcium for several hours before and after. Still, better than my friend, who for 3 years, was only allowed to eat pineapple. She now recoils from pineapple because of that.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 4:57pm G:

@Caryn: That's a pill alright.

past its sell-by date

@Matt: it was supposed to be 100 % old sleaze, but was in DNA tests found to include traces of horse meat.

was today "change your picture day"? i must have missed the memo.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:07pm Carmichael:

My darlin' gave me my clementine.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:07pm Droll:

Sleaze, by definition, breeds autonomously in the wild. All sleaze contains horse meat DNA nowadays. The Monsanto sleaze-starlink DNA case is being heard by the SCotUS today.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:08pm G:

apparently so, glenn
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:08pm Droll:

Glenn, Thanks for reminding me to change my picture!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:09pm G:

my pic turned into old sleaze. what could i do?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:10pm Caryn:

I did think about changing my pic earlier today...
Well, better late than never.

...but that's a long list for you, Caryn!: I get it - you must not eat for hours...
- We wish you wellness.

...Heard in News that the Irish had to sell inumerable horses they got in the 'Celtic Tiger' boom - & have had to unload during the Crash...& this is the origin of some of this meat...

THIS IS M. Ward!

And I'm already missing the horse-lasagna.
Not really, but horsagna, horse d'oeuvres and others are ever-so-fun to say.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:16pm rrg:

Or singing. Singing is better.
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:17pm Fredericks:

Clay P. you are even bolder!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:17pm rrg:

I'm glad that I pay no attention to the news, because I don't know what the hell youse-all are talking about with your horsey talk.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Irwin drumming in the Hoof & Mouth is a Listener Right, though! He's done it in all the previous ones, no backing down now!!
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:18pm Fredericks:

Hey Matt, whatever happened to the Soft-Bop scene?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:18pm Caryn:

@RRN63: thanks. I just hope I haven't been going on about it too much. Don't want to do that.

@Irwin: have you been practising your Hoof & Mouth song a lot?

soft bop got hold of some cheap cialis off the net.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:20pm Irwin:

Not drumming w/H&M again this year. Maybe next. Too much real life on my desk right now.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:20pm fleep:

if your bop lasts longer than four hours, call a jazz combo
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:20pm rrg:

But a song or two, maybe?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:21pm Irwin:

But I am singing w/H&M. A supprize song.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:21pm rrg:

Say no more.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:22pm Caryn:

@rrg: I was similarly in the dark about the asteroid strike. Then I caught the news.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:23pm G:

striking news, huh, caryn?
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:24pm Clay P:

No drumming. Ouch. That's a blow. Glad you're singing, at least.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:24pm Caryn:

I keep staring at Matt's avatar pic. I half expect it to start singing "Mull of Kintyre" at me.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:24pm Carmichael:

Irwin, I hope you sing the Theme from Mannix.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:24pm glenn:

irwin will prolly do a mindy mcready song, just because.
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:25pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

...Kenny G is invited by some nice friends|
- they drop it on him

- & suddenly
- in a flash - !
...He GETS IT ALL...
...Could happen...
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:25pm Caryn:

Irwin will be doing an Eeliks:en song. Taking a while to learn the imaginary language, though.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:26pm Droll:

If Irwin has a H&M surprise planned, I recommend attendees bring eye protection and possibly a change of clothes.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:26pm rrg:

Who's the black private dick who's a sex machine to all the chicks? Mannix! (Damn right.)
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:26pm G:

Hush your mouth!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:28pm Caryn:

If Irwin's H&M act is to juggle clementines while dressed in a squirrel costume (or vice versa), that'll be... something.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:28pm rrg:

Finally, the Yo La Tengo.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: I think the photo is from before that, prob taken by Linda. If you're lucky, you'll get a song from Ram instead! Maybe even "Uncle Albert"! :)
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fredericks: Soft-Bop, when unsealed and left out, becomes Hard-Bop. Always make sure to re-seal your Soft-Bop in a Ziploc bag.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:30pm Caryn:

@Matt: hey, as long as it's anything but "Bip Bop", I'll be fine. Or "Wonderful Christmastime". Then again, the Irwin treatment might make even those two entertaining. Though I doubt it.
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:31pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

You Keepin' it Real Caryn.

...If yer Bop lasts more than four hours
- yer probably John Coltrane & we ready for the New Thing...

...It's the Death of the Kewl @ FMU...

- I have no 'tar/pic yet
- so imagine it changing.
...No horse or squirrel. I'm Year of the Hare, okay?

"Doctor, what happened is my bop hardened, and even after way more than four hours it just won't soften again. It hurts!"

I still don't know what was so great about that depression.

@rrg: it was a misquote. Rockefeller said snarkily, "Oh great, a depression!" A very young Rupert Murdoch overheard him. A name for an era is born.

@Mike: I'm hoping for the "Led Zepp'lin" cover!

Harry Partch slept in the town where I live during his amble -- mentioning it briefly in his journal.

Gary will be upset that there's no Year of the Squirrel in Eastern astrology.

Oh if only someone would've made a pedophilia joke, Andy would've laughed even louder. He's predictable that way.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:37pm Matt from Springfield:

That's how you know he's Andy--he can never disguise himself, as long as you tell a rape joke his laugh will show itself.

"Chunky Latina In Drag" is a good name for a debut comedy album. Ken as Cher from the H&M would make a good cover too.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:37pm Irwin:

@Matt: Quite rightly so.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:38pm Caryn:

@Matt: oh don't say that right when we got rid of Kendra's evil spirit. You'll draw her back in again!

LEE MORGAN on trumpet.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: The physical manifestation of a exorcised spirit in a photograph shouldn't draw Kendra back, unless people start incanting before the image--hey, are Kendra's eyes looking RIGHT at me now?!?..

@Matt: that's why Gary has begun to practice Norse rituals. He's very drawn to Ratatoskr.

Wow Caryn, thanks! That's the most badass squirrel of all mythology I've seen! (Can't believe I would ever say that...!)
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:46pm RevolutionRabbitNov63:

I think Murdoch is in fact that old.
...We all think of crazy crap like inventing our own instrumrnets - but here's this crazy nobody tramp named Partch who *actually does* all of that...Good thing Les Paul didn't show him an electric guitar, or it'd have been just another version of Louie Louie...I have nothing to say...have a reasonably pleasant nocturnal experience, in the imperative...
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:47pm rrg:

Wow. Where do you find this stuff?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:50pm Irwin:

Don't recall where. Maybe Pandora? Maybe Anesidora?
  Wed. 2/20/13 5:50pm adam:

hey pidgy!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:52pm G:

Maybe the Astral Plane :)
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:52pm rrg:

I see that there is an album called "Percy Sledge's Greatest Hits" that claims to have it.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:53pm Carmichael:

Maybe Deteriorata?
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: I also state in the imperative for you to have a reasonably pleasant nocturnal experience! Same goes for Irwin and all you Irwinites here! :)
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

And I agree, w/ an electric guitar Harry Partch probably would have been an early Arthur Brown or something like that!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 5:56pm rrg:

Hey. It's not 6pm yet!

All right, then. Have it your way.

G'night, all.

@Matt: don't forget the white squirrel in the Kalevala who helps invent beer. That's pretty good too.
