Hey Irwin! Cool elephant poster! Cheers for '16, BTW!

I got lost on that vintage kits of the 20s/30s page yesterday. Love the diagrams of old pedals and hardware. We've got some of that stuff here at my job for rental. Boardwalk Empire got most of their instruments from us.

Thanks to your program I was introduced to single gun theory and brought the CD which I still enjoy.

No question, Noel Coward owned and listened to all of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band albums.
Avatar 3:26pm Jeff:

...or the other way 'round?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Irwin:

Dean: Coward was an unabashed stylistic thief. The heirs of Stanshall should sue his heirs. Oh, wait -- Noel didn't have any.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Michele:

Hi Irwin, I'm enjoying the show today!
  3:28pm Dean:

You never know, though. Some of those non-existent heirs might have deep pockets.

[Intentional anachronism, Jeff. Just having fun.]

Michele - who was that cranky coot filling in for you on Xmas?
  3:31pm Eric:

anyone know a good Calypso compilation?
Avatar 3:31pm Jeff:

@Dean: I realized that after I hit the post button.

Sometimes too much time computer-ing leads to a literalness hangover in one's brain.

That figures, Jeff. Too much drinking aggravates my repetitive stress pain.

It's an overall lowering of standards at WFMU. I blame Ken.

I always blame Ken. For Everything. Ever.

It's always mea culpa.

What're y'all doing NY's Eve? I'll be reading War & Peace, my traditional routine for ringing in the new year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Blameless Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, folks! How's it going?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Ike:

The problem with "Talking Again" is that the woman who's talking over the song isn't THAT boring. I mean, she's not interesting, but she needs to be more aggressively dull. Try hanging out with somebody who keeps talking about the day's gossip page bunk every time you see him/her. And about all of the Farcebook memes you already saw because (s)he already posted them a while back.

  3:55pm Dean:

My NYE will respect our enduring family tradition: bottles of good Champagne, a little cocaine, teach the kids a new vice, run outside at midnight and fire revolvers into the sky.

No, it won't. I'll probably balance the checkbook to prepare to pay January bills.

Sulfur FOG its so heavily done.....no guns like in Detroit and elsewhere just mega home made explosions....MEGA explosions....i sit in the hood as its better than Waikiki waterfront TAME regulated works.....

Hello all, checking in from the parking lot of Vintage Vinyl in beautiful Fords, NJ. (They let me leave Hoboken, holidays and such.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Leonardo:

Every time I look at the playlist to see what the record is playing it's someone else. Wasn't Paul Weller back there? And this sure as hell isn't Roy Wood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Leonardo:

Well, it is now.

You listening to the Drummer stream, Len?

do people still have new years resolutions? i thought that was a thing and yet haven't heard a single one this season. maybe we've all preemptively given up.

@steve I'm one of those people who thinks that the turning of the calendar is a good chance to take stock of things (Not sure how successful I have been on all that however)...

Thanks, Irwin! The ol' Cosmic Matrix was out in the woods working on his luge, listening to your program from the treetops. Nice sounds. Always good stereo images and nice production on your programme.

Thanks to you all (even Ike!) for listening, and an even bigger gesture of gratitude towards those who help support the station during our self-abasing fund drives.

Happy New Year, Irwin! Thanks for keeping Joe Frank heard on WFMU!

Joe's a compelling soundtrack while I'm vacuuming the studio.

Sorry Irwin, I'm with Liz on silversun pickups. Although no secrets this year is ok. Until the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Irwin:

They do suck. I just play them to be contrarian.
Avatar 5:24pm dale:

THIS is why i love this station!
  5:26pm cronbat:

Silversun Pickups may suck, but I like their music anyway.
  5:30pm Dean:

Criminy, 5.5 million views, and I'd never heard of these Silversun Pickups. Gotta agree with the contrarian: they suck. They are, precisely, like those sucky bands featured by JetBlue on their godawful in-flight channel. Every stray hair, ever sartorial affectation, every occasional allusion to real rock music is choreographed by witless twerps in Public Relations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Irwin:

It's such a lonely, guilty pleasure, cron. I don't even know what they look like. Are they Earthlings?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Irwin:

Well, as long as I'm playing agreed-upon sucky music, Toby Keith coming up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

In a good way, of course.
  5:45pm Dean:

This reminds me that during a recent trip down the coast in California I heard John Mellencamp twice. One time I was in a decent beer bar. The bartender put an album of his on the turntable. The second time was in a coffee shop in the same town. Something tells me they like sucky music in Morro Bay.
