Listener comments!

Hi Irwin et al!
  3:02pm Listening Out There:

Geez. After seeing the playlist photo, I won't leave a comment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm redkayak:

Good afternoon, all :)
  3:08pm Listening Out There:

This Neil Cowley reminds me of The Bad Plus, down to the Dave King-style drumming. I like it, though...
  3:09pm Listener Robert:

You'll notice in the photo that some people already recorded their own activities.
Avatar 3:15pm Wild Neil:

@Irwin: Is Work in Progress on the docket for today, or is that next week?
Avatar 3:18pm Irwin:

Joe is next week. Two half-hour eps. Check IC playlist archives page.
Avatar 3:22pm glenn:

jesus was a gay, socialist, jewish, muckraking, anti-establishment troublemaker. he embodied everything the religious right hates, so for the life of me, i can't figure out why they love him so much.
Avatar 3:23pm still b/p:

Don't believe I've ever heard "poked out his eyes" sung by anyone with such brightly casual energy.
  3:25pm disastrogirl:

Irwin, that was Click Kids song was Run Samson, Run.
Avatar 3:26pm Wild Neil:

@Glenn-you claim Jesus was gay. Got any proof?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm dale:

i hated that 'jefferson' bit on the grammys, but i like this.
Avatar 3:27pm Irwin:

D-girl: you are correct. The tags on the downloads were all F'ed up. I fixed 'em but they're still F'ed up.
Avatar 3:28pm Irwin:

Can someone find out the label for the Click's LP? SoundExchange needs to know.
Avatar 3:29pm Linda Lee:

Irwin, discogs says Click Records.
Avatar 3:29pm glenn:

hmmm. he was 33 years old, and never married, at a time when people got married at 14. just sayin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Lewis:

I do enjoy a bit of the Professor...
Avatar 3:32pm glenn:

besides,there's just as much proof that jesus was gay as there is proof that he was the son of god.
Avatar 3:33pm Wild Neil:

@Glenn-you left one thing out-Jesus was pro-life. The left is pro-choice...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If Amanda is available to take on the job of Supreme Court Justice or President, I wholeheartedly support her decision.
Avatar 3:35pm Irwin:

Thanks, LL.
Avatar 3:37pm Linda Lee:

any time.
Avatar 3:38pm Inneedofbogroll:

all we need now is some goldie looking chain :)
  3:48pm Mark R.:

I thought this actually WAS Sun Ra until I checked your playlist.
Avatar 3:49pm Roberto:

Amanda 4 lyfe
  3:50pm Listening Out There:

[Amanda Tolerator...Just Barely]
Avatar 3:50pm Wild Neil:

@Glenn-if you truly wonder about this I suggest you find an open minded right-wing Christian in your area and engage them with that question. You are likely to be surprised.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Goyim in the AM:

Holy schmoly just found Amanda's wedding picture on line. Va-va-VOOM.
  3:50pm Listener Robert:

It was only the playing of her every show that I hated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Goyim in the AM:

(NB: fairly brief non-creepy googling lead me there.)
Avatar 3:52pm Linda Lee:

~ i'm with LOT on the Amanda Question ~ cute the first few times ~ then not so cute ~
Avatar 3:52pm glenn:

no, i don't care. i don't believe in god, and nothing will change that. and besides, there is no such thing as an open minded right wing christian, especially in my area.
Avatar 3:54pm Wild Neil:

@Glenn-or not. Whatever, dude.
  3:56pm Listener Robert:

Same with Amanda as with Jandek: OK as irritainment once per piece. Maybe a reminder once every other year. But not as regular punishment.
Avatar 3:57pm Linda Lee:

should i be glad i don't know Jandek? i guess i am.
Avatar 4:04pm Irwin:

Jandek: thread-killer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm chris:

unless Jandek is either proof of the existence of god or has proof jesus was gay...
Avatar 4:08pm Wild Neil:

What Wikipedia says about Jandek...en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Parq:

Interesting, there appears to be another Amanda Whitt (there are several of course, but I mean one in particular) who fancies herself an expert on coffee and has a crowdfunding campaign afoot to get her a TEDD Talk gig.
Avatar 4:08pm Wild Neil:

Jandek uses special tunings of his own devising and is very secretive about who he is...among other things...
  4:09pm Listener Robert:

He's a recording performer-composer whom Irwin built up an air of mystery about. I noticed recently a performance of his had been caught on video by Poopy Lungstuffing in Houston, figured Irwin might be interested, but fortunately he no longer is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Parq:

Oh Irwin, if you'd only known in 1988 (ca.) when you introduced Jandek ...
Avatar 4:12pm Irwin:

1988? 1978!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Parq:

Really? I don't remember him prior to the "Atrocious Music" segments, but I yield to your (obviously) superior knowledge of the point.
Avatar 4:13pm MenfussMike:

I would be a secretive too if I was Jandek. Secretive and quiet.
  4:17pm Listener Robert:

I don't even recall him from the Atrocious Music segments, just Irwin playing him "straight", until one day in the last decade Irwin pronounced Jandek no longer cool, to the relief of the audience.
Avatar 4:18pm Wild Neil:

@Irwin-cool show, very eclectic yet listenable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm chris:

Irwin, please resurrect your incorrect music segment... your show it too listenable these days. ;-)
Avatar 4:30pm Wild Neil:

@Chris-honestly I hated some of it, but I try to put positive comments on her so as not to bum out musicians who come here to read comments about their work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm chris:

that's great, Neil! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Carmichael:

I actually enjoy Jandek and Amanda. They bring a strangeness and inventiveness to my otherwise formulaic and dreary musical world.

Jesus, I just sounded like Ben Fong effing Torres there. Sorry ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm chris:

incorrect music (Irwin's show in general, for that matter) is curatorial excellence. at once historical and introspective. brilliant stuff.

Thomas is a great example. thanks, Irwin!
Avatar 4:38pm MenfussMike:

I could have a beer with Thomas
Avatar 4:38pm Irwin:

I think Thomas is already six beers ahead.
Avatar 4:39pm MenfussMike:

I sure hope so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Lewis:

I have been pondering Mrs Mitchell in the incorrect category. Comments any one?
Avatar 4:40pm Irwin:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm redkayak:

Didn't Thomas tour with Wings?
Avatar 4:41pm Irwin:

Thomas opened for Wing.
  4:41pm MrFab:

Hey Irwin, any info on John Moynihan? Great stuff, like a beatnik Liberace. Absolutely nuthin on-line about him (except this show's playlists, but of course.)
Avatar 4:41pm Irwin:

Fab: sent by a listener who recorded them last Nov. Will compile a CD for thon prize.
Avatar 4:41pm glenn:

i think he means mrs. miller.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Parq:

Lewis might mean Mrs. Miller.
Avatar 4:42pm Roberto:

This is even better than The Better Beatles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Parq:

Thomas has a bit of an attention-span problem, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I hear that Wing retired as of June or so last year. Wishing her well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Lewis:

@Parq = indeed I do...
Avatar 4:43pm glenn:

i nominate florence foster jenkins as the queen of incorrect music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm redkayak:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Lewis:

And my judgement is that mrs *miller* is incorrect...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm redkayak:

The seventh Beatle, after Klaus, Billy Preston....
  4:44pm Laura L:

Thank you, Irwin, that was swell.
  4:46pm Listener Robert:

I think Mrs. Miller got conflated with Martha Mitchell, who was indeed both incorrect & atrocious.
  4:49pm Listener Robert:

Seriously, I mixed them up at the time.
Avatar 4:50pm Irwin:

  4:51pm Tony:

For people wondering about Jandek, he played on Brian Turner's show a few years ago:
  4:51pm Listener Robert:

This one -- en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Lewis:

and this one... en.wikipedia.org...
  4:56pm Listener Robert:

Were they ever photographed together?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Parq:

Lewis, back in the 70s, I would have paid money to see "Martha Mitchell Sings Mrs. Miller".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Carmichael:

Now it's Mrs. Mayhew!
  5:08pm Fredericks:

This piece is rather Partchian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Lewis:

Para - that would have been a show for the ages!
Avatar 5:11pm Irwin:

Yes, it's percussivistic.
  5:13pm Fredericks:

That's a new word in my book, Irwin. I'll try to use liberally.
Avatar 5:13pm Linda Lee:

i'd love to know how i can get my chores done around the farm when i'm continually captivated by this music!
Avatar 5:14pm Linda Lee:

~ always running into the house & up the stairs to check the playlist ~it's impossible!
Avatar 5:16pm glenn:

do like neil young - "more barn!"
Avatar 5:17pm glenn:

or, i wonder if it's possible to turn solar panels into giant display screens?

Music made from garbage.

It's Irwin's patented aerobic exercise method, Linda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm chris:

damn, that garbage music was sweet trash
  5:22pm jan:

Junkestra- great!
Avatar 5:22pm northguineahills:

Had a very Partch feel to it...., not so much an Oscar feel....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Somewhere Matt Garbage's ears were burning…
  5:25pm ScottC:

The SF Dump had an Artist In Residency back in the late 90s. I used to be out there a lot and there was a workshop on the side of a landfill surrounded by junk sculpture.
  5:25pm Listener Robert:

Glennboth, panels used for both photovoltaics & display are featured by the solar roadways promoter. But don't blame me if you invest!
  5:26pm Laura L:

Aw, will be out of town or I'd come over to KGB.
  5:26pm Listener Robert:

Last remarkd directed @glenn, not Glennboth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Greg from ZONE 5:

My high school buddy and I used to listen to his dad's Joseph Spence records and laaaaaugh and laugh…
Avatar 5:30pm glennboth:

i figured.
  5:30pm Alex Dupuy:

German WIkipedia already had an entry for Virginia Mayhew (now linked to yours) check out www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Content_translation
Avatar 5:31pm Irwin:

Yep, Alex, had found that. Why not one in (en)?
Avatar 5:32pm glenn:

but really, i thought linda lee could put solar panels on the roof of her barn and use them as a display so as not to miss irwin's playlis.
  5:33pm Listener Robert:

I think we got the idea from its context, glenn.
  5:35pm Alex Dupuy:

Germans are better? (ask Ken?) but the content translation tool allows you to steal their work at the click of a button, worth looking into if you are creating Wikipedia pages.
  5:38pm #4:

great microdosing song

...weelll - Jandek is more prolific than Cohen...only nearly as consistent...
