Thanks Sem, I honestly couldn't figure out what that was. Should have known.
Avatar 3:08pm Sem Chumbo:

@Polyus: my sartorial pleasure.
  3:10pm Robert:

I wore Sansabelts, didn't see much action, though.
  3:11pm Mildred:

I wish I had a life and or a job.
  3:11pm Listening Out There:

Got here late. The photo reminds me of the pants that Elridge Cleaver invented: http://dangerousminds.net/comments/eldridge_cleaver_the_true_penis_pants_innovator
Avatar 3:11pm Sem Chumbo:

Sansabelts were like, elastic waistband pants?
  3:12pm Robert:

What do/can you do, Mildred? Maybe we can do it together.
  3:12pm Dean:

Sans a belt, so to speak.

  3:30pm Mark:

WTF is a "snack sack," dare I ask? I like how the poodle's looking at him, like, "What's up, man?"
  3:33pm berbo:

I get it now: 'sans a belt' == without a belt.
its in Franglais. Because 'sans ceinture' was too wordy?
  3:33pm Dean:

Because "Fuckthisbeltshit" was too suggestive.
  3:34pm Mark:

This "found recording" is the best thing I've heard on WFMU in a long, long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Carmichael:

People like this scare me. HI Irwin!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm BDR:

Though you should know, Irwin: Dan Tullis called Joel Clark because the rate for a 50 year old who smokes an occasional cigar has risen a dollar to $22 per month. The Tullis is exactly the same, but there's a new Joel.
  3:41pm Listening Out There:

Dan Tullis...haven't heard anything on that front in a while...
  3:42pm Mark:

Is it just me or is this kind of a weird set? Not that there's anything wrong with that.
  3:42pm Woo:

I feel like I've been slipped a mickey

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Mister Dobalina:

Should I make my therapy check out to Irwin Chusid ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm chris:

I'm pretty sure Irwin takes Shempley's gift certificates as payment, Mr. D, but you should check with him first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Mister Dobalina:

Well, I do know is that I feel better after his reassurance. It's been a bit of nail biter as of lately. And I same to be coming around the bend..but Irwin just sealed that envelope for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Polyus:

What would really impress me is Jones and X-Ray doing a pedal-powered show.

"Perfect sound forever," those crappy CDs.

It's not the discs, it's the deck. Dead.

Any music from NYC beats this hula music by a zillion miles......i swear Hawaiian Music is outright scary bad........they have Uke Festivals and i am asking WHERE is the energy?????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm fleep:

Greeting, Irwin and normal regular listeners. Sounds like that deck has no action zone.
  3:55pm P-90:

Poodle's eyes are GLUED to that "Action Zone"

Let Yasunao Tone repair it.

Are all radio stations hard on equipment like this? Or is WFMU just prone to uh overenthusiam?

How many soprano saxes are there...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Irwin:

Four saxes in DCB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Irwin:

They each play soprano, alto, tenor, baritone. Also clarinet.
  4:22pm Listening Out There:

Thanks, gracious host. Now that I hear this solo, I hear that they ain't all sopranos. It's great that they all trade off on reeds. Would be fun to hear live.

  4:33pm Listening Out There:

McCoy Tyner again. Wowzers...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Mike East:

McCoy Tyner was in here last week rehearsing...briefly.
  4:35pm Listening Out There:

Mike...where is "here"? And is your piano still in tune?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm coelacanth:

...and,does he still tour?
  4:40pm Listening Out There:

(Aside: I'd heard that pianists never liked to play a piano after Dave Brubeck was done with it. He played hard, knocking the thing out of tune.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Mike East:

a rehearsal studio on W55th st. (nyc). I think we actually set up the Steinway for him cuz he's a big deal...very few get the steinway treatment. Not sure if he was rehearsing for a record, tour, or maybe just trying out some new guys...it was just a trio or maybe even just a bass player.
  4:41pm golde:

joe frank today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Mike East:

next week, golde.
  4:41pm Listening Out There:

Yeah, I'd say he'd deserve that Steinway. Wow, what a treat to hear that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm common:

man, that's cool mike east!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Mike East:

yeah, there are a few perks to this job...most clients are NOT that cool, though...don't tell them I said that.
  4:49pm Mark:

I like this "Interstellar Overdrive"--very spooky.
  4:51pm Mark:

I saw McCoy at the Blue Note a couple of years ago. He had a very interesting band including a violin!

Genius! What took humanity this long to figure out such an idea ! *noSarcasm*
  5:21pm tr/sh:

Oh, spare me, Irwin. That's a great idea.
I imagine you'll begin to hear, "it's not allll crap!" a lot.
  5:22pm Listening Out There:

I think the CD 45 (TM) delivery vehicle would work just fine.
