Listener comments!

Avatar 3:02pm Parq:

Oh right, today's the day! Man, I've been looking forward to this.
Avatar 3:11pm ChrisB.:

Ha! At first I thought this was going to be the 1-877-KARS FOR KIDS song. AM radio has ruined me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Irwin:

Is this accu-comments thing working?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm fred:

It seems to work
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm fred:

It just seems like you're not interesting enough to spur comments yet. Maybe you need a better combover
  3:28pm blob dobbs:

I believe the band name is Zest of Yore, and the album title is Quality of Life:
  3:29pm Listening Out There:

I'm listening out there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm fred:

Phew, I'm out of Irwin-ego-smoothing duty, which would have ended in disaster, especially for me. (this guy is a deity)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Irwin:

I'll take your word for it, Blob. There is a song called "Quality of Life," but there isn't one called "Zest of Yore."
  3:33pm Laura L:

I am in whistle while you work mode.
  3:35pm berbo:

You whistle, I say France
  3:37pm blob dobbs:

Yeah, that page is confusing Irwin. But it does show three albums by Zest of Yore, one called Quality of Life. Great band though, I obviously had to look them up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm fred:

@Irwin: Thanks, I laughed so much while seeing this. Amy Schumer rules
  3:42pm JakeGould:

Good afternoon. May the heat of the past few weeks disappear in the next few hours as rain hits the NY/NJ area.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm fred:

  3:47pm Listening Out There:

Caetano Veloso also does a good version of this Hendrix song...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Mike East:

nice, fred. Its a bit offputting that I know the One Direction song that they are parodying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Mike East:

I gotta hear that, LOT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm fred:

@Mike East: OK, I think the joke's on me, I don't know who One Direction are. Irwin crushed me again
  3:54pm Listening Out There:

Mike, the cut is on Tropicalia 2, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso
  3:56pm Keith:

Irwin, there aren't many DJs I can rely on to present new (or old) music that I haven't heard - that I'll like, I mean. There are 3 CDs I've bought in the last month as a result of listening to your show. Thank you, and keep it up, please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Mike East:

@fred - you shouldn't unless you had a tween daughter...and even then you should try to keep that stuff outta the house. I've failed at that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...late, & just in time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm fred:

@Mike East: Yet Irwin does it, how does he pull it off at his age?
  4:06pm JakeGould:

Now that Barrence has mentioned Chris Christie and being a “full grown man” when was the last time Chris Christie saw his own “hoo hah.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Irwin:

Fred: I'm a full-grown man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

OMG Barrence Whitfield & the Savages bring it. I love this band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Irwin:

Thanks, Keith. Just sharing stuff I like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Mike East:

@fred - Irwin is a unique and amazing individual. I don't know how he does it. That's why he's got the mic, and we just listen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm fred:

@Irwin: Thanks for sharing. And that goes for a lot you've been sharing with a lot of effort on your part to make it happen. Take your minds off the gutter, he's a hero
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Always thot Brian in UK said it well on his profile:
...'We are normal and we want our freeform, yes FMU is the home of radio that has grown up. A sophisicated system that hides behinds a seemimgly juvenile facade'...
- It's easy to take it for granted...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Irwin:

All the amateurism of college radio -- without the basketball games.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Irwin:

Where the shunned shine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Mike East:

goddamn, these guys rock so much. Will they be holding auditions for tambourine players or anything? Cuz I can really shake it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm fred:

@Mike East: I've been sharing Amy's skits for a while, should I switch to damage control mode with people who have teenage daughters? More to the point: did I seriously fuck up there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Mike East:

not at all, fred...they will find it particularly humorous as I did. She's a funny gal, and I think a good influence on the young women of today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Mike East:

...and men.
  4:26pm Mike Sin:

This Barrence Whitfield & the Savages set sounds great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Stevel:

So fucking good.
Avatar 4:26pm Jeff:

Some of the gang relaxing after the set:

  4:27pm Listening Out There:

Hearing BW & TS with The Sonics would have been great fun indeedy...
Avatar 4:27pm Parq:

Whoa yeah!
Avatar 4:28pm Parq:

Great shot, Jeff. Who's on the right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Irwin:

Engineer Jon Flores.
Avatar 4:29pm Todd-o-phonic:

Great set! I almost felt as if I was there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Irwin:

Jon's dad, George Flores, hosted a Christian rock program (The David & Goliath Show) on WFMU for 25 years. George and Barrence were buds back in '75/'76 too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm fred:

Great set, great engineer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm DJ Large Margin:

That was indeed a fun set!
  4:42pm Listening Out There:

"Cybernetic scion"...
Avatar 4:44pm laughingacademy:

Tom Lehrer! There's a guy who knows what's what.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Do I have the story right he had a terminal disease that influenced his outspokenness?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Irwin:

Avatar 4:46pm Jeff:

In a similar vein... just a couple of days ago I found myself humming

"Remember Mommy
I'm off to get a commie
So send me a salami
And try to smile somehow..."
  4:47pm Listener Robert:

If it's Lehrer, he's been doing very well with that illness all this time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah I guess not.
Ramones got the 'Commando' chorus from Lehrer, apparently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Irwin:

RRN63: Define "terminal."
  4:50pm berbo:

I'm sorry Mr. Lehrer. You've only got 6 or 7 decades at most left to live.
  4:53pm Listening Out There:

A good read on Tom Lehrer: "Looking For Tom Lehrer, Comedy’s Mysterious Genius" - http://www.buzzfeed.com/bensmith/tom-lehrer#.tq8ebvykw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm fred:

@Irwin: I guess it means "lethal before recording anything else"; for non-recording types it probably means "it's about time"
  5:04pm JakeGould:

“Dr. Kurtz's Program” www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...indeed - I can find no confirmation a serious diagnosis inspired Lehrer to be outspoken
- but wigkey does say he claimed to invent the Jell-O Shot !...so not a wasted websearch...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm fred:

Time for me to go
  5:16pm Listening Out There:

Hoboy. Just now in the NY Times: Billie Holiday often sang about being blue, but when she appears at the Apollo later this year she’ll be closer to translucent. The Apollo has partnered with Hologram USA to bring extended, permanent hologram technology to the theater. Ms. Holiday, who performed at the Apollo in the flesh nearly 30 times, will be the first, and is scheduled to debut around Thanksgiving.
  5:19pm Jack:

Coming soon after: The HoloGrammys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& there's a Lehrer song just waiting
...Thx for article addy LOT.
Avatar 5:26pm steve:

how long has this been going? 30 mins?
  5:27pm Dave:

Over so soon? I was just getting into it...
  5:30pm Dean:

And here I kept thinking Steinberg was the guy who produced Rachel Sweet's first record. That was Liam Sternberg.
  5:32pm Laura L:

You get the vacuuming done during Dr. Kurtz's program?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Irwin:

No, LL. I cleaned up the mess o' snacks and soft drinks left over from the Barrence hospitality table upstairs.
  5:46pm berbo:

"you can have your funky world"
  5:47pm Listening Out There:

Up With People. Gosh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...did I tell you about when I smoked banana peels w/ Up W/ People, J. Edgar Hoover & Tom Lehrer?
...I'm full of factual anecdotes, you see...
  5:56pm Listening Out There:

The percussion in this Clocked Out piece is great...
Avatar 9:44am Cecile:

popping into the archives to thank you for the Barrence set. Excellent.
