Hi Irene!

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

One of my favorite albums. She is so wonderful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Bronwyn and Jake! Agreed BB, this album by Linda is one of my top 5 all-time favorite albums.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

And this is one of my favorite Pink Floyd albums! (Number one is always The Piper at the Gates of Dawn)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Irene Trudel:

Mine too! It'll hopefully be a night of favorites, old and new.
  9:19pm axlotl:

came in after a dog walk to the bird-tweet; didn't remember leaving the stereo on. Tried to figure out what device was alarming until the guitar came in. Then recognized the tweeting and a hard day of anxiety slipped away.
  9:20pm foofs:

The horrible live half of Ummabumma was recorded just up the road from me. I can see the church opposite the (former) nitespot from my bedroom window right now.
  9:20pm flashback:

Hello everybody.
  9:22pm flashback:

Irene , have you ever played careful with that axe ? Eugene?
  9:23pm axlotl:

Bite your tongue, foofs, Astronomy Domine is divine on that record.
  9:26pm foofs:

I'll admit it only got half a listen. One of those groups I have to re-examine every 10 years to find out if I like 'em yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Irene Trudel:

fofs, I do happen to love that whole live Pink Floyd disc. flashback, I have played "Eugene" on air but not recently. Agreed, axlotl, I think that version surpasses the original.
  9:31pm axlotl:

Irene: the two versions can live together happily in this same world :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm melinda:

Dust on the Nettles, what a great name for a British folk compilation.
  9:41pm spanikopity:

when i was a child, ummagumma made me feel less alone, made me feel like someone else understood the world as i did. are you heading toward playing some art of flying???
  9:49pm foofs:

OK, I'm sorry I had a swipe at a much-loved record. I wasn't being deadly serious.
Avatar 9:49pm axlotl:

Irene: Just paused the show to listen to them both. You are correct. Did I miss anything?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Irene Trudel:

I might be persuaded to play AOF, spanikopity. foofs, no offense taken. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Bronwyn Bishop:

YAY Robbie Basho! My favorite guitar player ever :) You're killing it tonight Irene!
  10:06pm spanikopity:

thank you I.T. i was just eating nachos and there they were. AOF. why are they not more famous than U2? aren't they more genius?
  10:08pm spanikopity:

i mean art of flying, not the nachos.
Avatar 10:09pm Van in DC:

Um. Hi Irene. I'm late. Here for a bit. Hope your week was a wonderful one!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I think your nachos are probably more genius than U2 spanikopity
Avatar 10:13pm Van in DC:

Oh man. I missed the Dental assistant, Linda Perhacs. Dang it. And the irony of that is that I had a dental appointment today. But nobody sang to me there
Avatar 10:16pm Van in DC:

I love Linda's "Intensity" song though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...home from the pub & my Irish Trad pals for Irene Trudel extraordinariness (& you spell that after a few pints)...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I'm directing a production of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris which goes up in December, if it wasn't in Ithaca I would invite you all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...linguistically, I gotta take everybody's word that he's terribly relevant - but my DNA responds anyhow...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Always good to hear Brel and Scott in the same set, they are such a perfect pair!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...you ever get that feeling - uh-oh - here's another Artist that's going to be important to me & I'm gonna need to know all their stuff & everything? Like falling in love & committing? ....Scott Walker...
  10:40pm jon:

the sound of the city sifting through trees sez paul simon. always good listening to your show irene
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Scott is a funny one to commit to because his early and late work are so vastly different. But it's a very rewarding catalog all the same!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Oh and one of my favorite S&G songs!
Avatar 10:43pm slugluv1313:

yes -- "Old Friends" & "Bookends" STILL get to me after all these years
Avatar 10:46pm Van in DC:

Thanks Irene, will catch up soon. Have a wonderful week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm melinda:

Free Design, yes!
  10:52pm KP:

Good late evening, Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- posting again (as last week) link to 'Come to Sunshine' w/ all of 'Bookends' in Mono & other S&G too: cometothesunshine.podomatic.com...
  10:54pm KP:

I saw Spanky in the revamped Mamas
  10:56pm JakeGould:

Ahhh! 1960s fake olde timey songs! I love them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- so weird - the 20s & 30s were only 40 or 30 years from them...
  11:00pm KP:

Also the gang's drummer John Seiter lived in my town out on LI. I spoke to him quite a bit. Spanky would come out there but I never saw her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Irene Trudel:

Wow, KP! that's a cool story. I've always liked Spanky's voice and thought she was a good fit the The Mamas & the Papas. And, yeah, Rev. Rabbit. These was this whole nostalgia movement in the 60's. Remember Winchester Cathedral or Bonnie & Clyde? I kinda liked it.
  11:09pm JakeGould:

Dave Van Ronk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Granny Takes a Trip & Village Green & all this. They considered themselves so far passed it, but it still resonated. Roaring 20s & Swinging 60s...only 30 years between Robert Johnson & Hendrix. Scary. Used to see Little Rascals & Laurel & Hardy on TV...another Century altogether...
  11:10pm KP:

A friend opened for the mamas
  11:11pm JakeGould:

Ack! I forgot about ampersands and the comments in the app: Dave Van Ronk and The Hudson Dusters: 1960s nostalgia for a West Village gang that hung out around Hudson Street in the 1890s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@KP: - makes me think of reading Michelle Phillips autobio...; if you wanna be glad to be born to the completely unfamous...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...**Mackenzie** Phillips...
  11:21pm ?:

Good ole Cash!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm melinda:

I was recently watching this same clip on youtube! Love the song and their performance of it.
  11:28pm KP:

It's amazing how my comments get cut off but in way that still makes sense
  11:32pm KP:

RRN, what I was trying to say in cut off comment was my friend introduced me to Mackenzie. She was the other Mama. And she was the nicest kid you'd ever want to meet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@KP: I'm sure.
  11:36pm KP:

I did read the Papa John book. Oh boy
  11:59pm Andrew:

Nice relaxing show, Irene, after a not so relaxing day. I expect I'll listen again before next week.
Avatar 11:59pm Parq:

This was a singular show, Irene, one of your best ever. Y'know what? I think I'll favorite-episode star it. Thanks for the lovely evening.
Avatar 12:00am Parq:

Ooh look! Two other people agree with me. There you have it.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:17am Sean in Bristol UK:

I agree with Parq, that was a show of awesome quality, the fourth set, wow! Thanks Irene. The next time I tune in I will be Stateside and will be listening live, who-hoo!
Avatar 9:55am Van in DC:

Okay, stopping back in to listen to everything I missed, before and after I was once here.
Avatar 10:23am Van in DC:

Holy smokes.

I instantly thought SANDY!! then looked and it's a "Chrissie Quayle ". Wowzers. Very nice.....
Avatar 10:32am Van in DC:

Linda Perhacs' new album (last year) was apparently called


....it has that wonderful "Intensity" song on it...
