I've had this cheese. It's great! ;-)
  9:08pm Groucho:

It's 2.06am here in the U.K. And I've had a cocktail of gin, beer, pills and live comedy for 3 days now. Just settled in to bed for the first time and Irene sounds bloody mental
  9:09pm listening out there:

Sounds like Dave Abramson...

I'm over here, sitting in the VW Bus at Wetlands.
  9:24pm Eugene R.:

Ah, the Secret Museum of the Air. One of my favorite WBAI programs. I think I lost track when it moved to WFMU, so I have some archive-diving to do!
  9:25pm toni braxton:

wow good job irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Webhamster Henry:

This is a variation on the "we never play in G" bit, for those who may need to hit Irene's previous Shulcoth archives.
  9:30pm toni braxton:

was citizen kafka into negativland?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Irene Trudel:

I don't think so, Toni. Two different worlds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Webhamster Henry:

I'd say the Kafka Radio show was more like Firesign Theatre than Over The Edge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Webhamster Henry:

I forgot about this charming number!
  9:52pm herb.nyc:

I am only aware of CKafka via yr show, Irene. It be a hoot.
Avatar 10:01pm JakeGould:

I remember Citizen Kafka back in the early 1990s on WBAI… Back when that station was a tad more less crazy.
Avatar 10:04pm JakeGould:

Oh man, Hadassah… If “JM in the AM” were still on the air, I would suggest Tzedakah boxes for that show and the station.
  10:11pm the garden:

Hi there..
  10:37pm Richard Barr:

Do you think that Richie would have been surprised that his pals and fans would come together like this every year after his passing, or would he have expected it?
  10:47pm herb.nyc:

Mann, McMahon, spelling is fun, too crazy. I love it!
  10:53pm KP:

Hola, Citizen Irene!
  10:56pm pat conte:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Irene Trudel:

'Alo, Citizen KP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Webhamster Henry:

When Kafka was liquidating his storage rooms, I found a few of those PSAs, and tried to buy them, but he wanted to copy them first!
