Listener comments!

  3:02pm Listening Out There:

Welcome to the Father Damien Show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm rrg:

Those were the days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm mariano:

Thanks for that, Irwin! Lovely read.
  3:06pm Alison Porchnik:

WTF Irwin?
Avatar 3:06pm Droll:

Irwin's theme song followed by my theme song! Great show opener!
  3:06pm r i s k y:

YES! Go Irwin!!!
  3:06pm K Wilde:

Awful good so far
  3:06pm Laura L:

She can't make up her mind. Awful or good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm common:

good day irwin!
  3:10pm Laura L:

Page 205 from which book?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Irwin:

Search the text online, you'll find. I made one edit.
  3:12pm Jack:

I hear there are beautiful leper colonies on the Hawiian Islands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm rrg:

"The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Alison Porchnik:

I see the edit; the original was undoubtedly some opaque euphemism you assumed no one would understand.
Avatar 3:16pm Droll:

If your nose collapses and begins to ooze a smelly liquid you can always call 1-800-Free-NoseJiob.com. Make your own "My leper has no nose. How does he smell?" joke.

Where is the edit? I can't find my copy of the book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Ike:

I like the conceit of a Lonely Planet type of guide for fourteenth-century England.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Irwin:

AP: No, I removed all references to WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm mariano:

I think there's a BBC three-part show you can find on Youtube called The Elizabethan Time Traveller or something like that. Really interesting.
Avatar 3:21pm Parq:

<That is why people are absolutely terrified of it. And that is why, if you catch it, very few people will dare to come near you.>

He's right -- that sure sounds like WFMU to me.
  3:21pm Laura L:

And you made me read it twice now to try to find the edit--isn't it just that you swapped the order of the paragraphs and gave the second paragraph an indent? In addition to deleting WFMU references, that is.
Avatar 3:24pm still b/p:

A subsequent paragraph says, "...leper hospitals are set up on the roads out of towns. Therein, it is supposed, the lepers are fornicating furiously, in line with their supposedly sinful natures, and so most lepers do not actually go to these places until forced to do so."
If you was horribly afflicted and ostracized, you WOULDN'T go for the FF?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm rrg:

Yes, Laura. Caught me as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My hands & feet haven't had much sensation lately. Should I be worried?
Avatar 3:27pm Droll:

How are the lepers going to fornicate if their penises have putrefied?

Which phrase replaces WFMU? "living death"? "Your breath will be considered to be of similar quality to the smell of the WFMU main studio mic"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Andrew Waterloo:

I figured he added WFMU references.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Irwin:

LL discovered the edit. She wins! However, since she won something from me in the past 30 days, she is disqualified from collecting the prize. We have to give others a fair chance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm mariano:

There's that old song about leprosy, remember anyone?
Leprosy, crawling all over me
There goes my left ear, into my draft beer...
Kiss me quick! There goes my upper lip!
There goes my eyeball, into my highball...

Probably not remembering the lyrics 100% accurately, it's some of my grandparents' Rat Pack era stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

There was a problem at the leper hockey game the other night. There was a face off in the corner.
Avatar 3:32pm still b/p:

Been unfairly disqualified and stiffed in a radio contest? Call us at the firm of Deformed, Stinking, Repulsive & Blind. We'll litigate furiously for you. It's our nature.
  3:39pm Laura L:

You know, I wasn't going to mention it, but I noticed that the comma at "around a cesspit," should be deleted, 'cause that's a compound predicate. There, I've said it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm rrg:

I am awed.
  3:49pm Laura L:

FSK means voluntary self-control, btw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Irwin:

Laura, you need a profile pic. In German, whatev.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Irwin:

How do you say "whatever" in Deutsche?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm mariano:

Was so immer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm common:

love me some free design!
Avatar 3:57pm Droll:

. o O ( Hippies harmonizing 4-parts in 7/8?! )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm rrg:

The Free Design are so...pretty. I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm mariano:

Pronounced vas zo imma. Literally "whatsoever."
  3:59pm Laura L:

Mir egal (if you mean I don't care). Irgendwas if you mean something, whatever it is. Or what Mariano said, that works too. But I don't care to have a profile pic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm mariano:

This backing track has to be my favorite in the Joe Frank collection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Irwin:

Mariano: "Infrarouge" by the Mighty Bop, from La Vague Sensorielle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm mariano:

Cool, thanks so much, Irwin! Back when I'd hear these in the 90s on KPFA, it was harder to find out who did what, because he usually just credited whoever mixed the clip for his show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Goyim in the AM:

Pretentious Germans will often say "whatever" in English.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm mariano:

Never mind, I was wrong: he totally credited the music! I must've been to buzzed last time I heard this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Irwin:

OK, the rest of you: resume commenting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Uncle Michael:

Joe Frank is an out-of-mind experience. I'm left too disoriented...or too focused to work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm rrg:

I'm back. Did I miss anything?
Avatar 5:13pm Droll:

rrg, Looks like you didn't miss anything.

Communist Ape Smut! Hoorah!
Avatar 5:14pm Jeff:

Herz Ist Trumpf!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm rrg:

See, Irwin finds the overlooked jewels in the releases from people that everyone else thinks are one-hit wonders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Irwin:

that snippet was an aircheck from 1968 discovered by Jesse Jarnow.
Avatar 5:19pm Droll:

Ahhh, 45 years and the more things change, the more they stay the same: Smut peddlers to the last. And pinkos... probably still moochin' money from the listeners.
Avatar 5:25pm Droll:

NS! Thanks for the piano mini-set.
  5:31pm Laura L:

Hmm, don't have this album by Mary Lorson & Billy Coté. What year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm rrg:

2002. I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Carmichael:

Yikes, just checking in. I missed a lot of good music, but at least I didn't break the yogurt maker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Irwin:

Piano Creeps - 2003: en.wikipedia.org...
  5:45pm Laura L:

Thanks! I should get that one--it's great work music--and we all need great work music. But what music to play when breaking the yogurt maker?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Ike:

I'm not even sure how I would break my yogurt maker, other than throwing it out the window from the third floor. It's small, but pretty sturdy-looking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I've only had store-bought yogurt. Is it a lot of work to make yogurt at home or at the office?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Carmichael:

Only Helmut Klankschein knows. It was probably a Braun.
Avatar 5:49pm Droll:

. o O ( He's clearly saying "Medison". It's definitely a printing error. )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Ike:

KFHP, it's pretty easy, but when I've tried it, it comes out all watery. I need a strainer. Even then it's probably unlikely to be as good as "Greek" yogurt. I usually just buy that lately (plain Cabot on sale).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm dale:

shannon - awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Carmichael:

Jeezus, its Henry Gross. Fresh out of Sha Na Na.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 5:55pm HarktheUmpire:

Whatever Helmut did to break the yogurt maker, he looks extremely uncomfortable and it fills me with schadenfreude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm dale:

poor poor poochie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm rrg:

I wish there WERE such an album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Irwin:

Shannon is hiding after she broke the yogurt maker. Afraid to face master.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Carmichael:

I wish Helmut would move his hand a little, wink wink nudge nudge ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm dale:

douche couldn't keep his dog leashed. spca should burn his ass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Carmichael:

Just like the yogurt maker in my back yard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm cklequ:

I don't trust that face. I'm pretty sure Helmut did break it.
Avatar 5:58pm Droll:

I like how all the Great Hit pop songs of the 70's were already taken and K-tel settled for the Decent pop songs. Somewhere I have my "Mediocre Melodies of '74" compilation... Almost decent.

Thanks Irwin! Have a fun week yinz!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 5:58pm HarktheUmpire:

@ Carmichael: Definitely. And an eyebrow raising slightly would make my day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm rrg:

Wow. 6pm. Thanks, etc.

Now, it's time for Five Guys.
