Evening, Irene.
  10:09pm Dan:

Hi Irene, I've got your broadcast at 30% to drown out the edge on clown pres blah blah. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Irene Trudel:

It's been awfully quiet tonight-- especially since I just realized I'd somehow accidentally disabled commenting! Hope you're all well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Irene Trudel:

Hi pantz and Dan. You've got the right idea, Dan!
Avatar 10:13pm pantz:

I wonder what the state of my radio is. I havent used one in so long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Irene Trudel:

As you can see, my old radio isn't doing so well.
Avatar 10:13pm TDK60:

Hello, was going to say earlier I caught your drift in the first set! I had no intention of watching TV tonight. So this helps.
Avatar 10:14pm Listening Out There:

Hello! Good program tonight...
  10:16pm Bobby:

I was stuck in the no-chat zone. I am with you.
  10:16pm Dan:

I just reversed the balance so you drown out the troll in chief.
Avatar 10:16pm glenn:

god. isn't that fat bloviating fuckwad done his spiel yet?
Avatar 10:16pm JakeGould:

Yeah, Irene’s show has been a nice balm since this State of the Union began.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm fleep:

It's been a terrific distraction so far.
Avatar 10:18pm JakeGould:

Please be sure to have positive thoughts towards any child writing a current events report this week.

No one with a brain is watching the stupid speech
Avatar 10:19pm glenn:

on the plus side, it'll be the only state of the union trump ever delivers.
  10:19pm Dan:

Just a setup for Colbert
Avatar 10:20pm JakeGould:

@glenn: Then what’s next? 2 years of Pence followed by another GOP clown?
  10:20pm katharsis:

I just figured you were going real old school. Enjoying show thanks.
Avatar 10:21pm glenn:

no idea. that's for you guys to figure out.
  10:21pm yep:

Yes... enjoying your show... much better use of my time than listening to the Idiot in Chief
Avatar 10:22pm TDK60:

Mr. Thompson is back to remind us of the bittersweetness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Cooh John:

RT: my man.
Avatar 10:26pm TDK60:

And yes, his guitar too.
Avatar 10:27pm KP:

Hello Irene! Could not post from portable devices so actually have to sit up to drop a line but I know you appreciate the sacrifice.
Avatar 10:28pm JakeGould:

They are now chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”
  10:28pm WoodsOfNewHampshire:

Irene, thanks for the public service/antidote to ignorance. Spending the night listening here and reading some Jim Harrison, whose dogs had more sense than the bag of hammers at the podium.
  10:32pm Dan:

Irene, you"re amazing! Thx!
Avatar 10:32pm JakeGould:

He’s also really leaning heavy on using the word “Citizens.” Talk about dog whistling. AND IT’S OVER!!!
Avatar 10:33pm TDK60:

Irene, I see your old radio had shortwave; were you a listener to that?
Avatar 10:34pm Kamp Climax:

this is the album! last week Irene played heliotrope off this album and it was a stunner and now this.
Avatar 10:35pm glenn:

  10:37pm WoodsOfNewHampshire:

I loved that tune-yards song. What she does with melody kind of reminds me of Esperanza Spalding.
Avatar 10:38pm Kamp Climax:

Irene, is the whole album as good as those two selections, cause last week you said you listened to it, but sort of said it was just interesting. The Perrudin album I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks all for the encouraging words. If I were home, the TV would be tuned to anything but that nonsense. TDK60, yes I did love short wave but was not an avid listener of any one station. I just loved tuning randomly and stumbling across something unusual. Much as I stumbled across that radio. I was about 9 or 10 and literally stumbled across it in a back path behind a furniture store. I presume it was stolen. I hid it in the bushes for a few days until my mother would let me take it home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Irene Trudel:

Kamp Climax, I just listened through Laura Perrudin's whole album yesterday. It's really wonderful. Wish I'd been able to see her live, opening for Becca Stevens a few weeks ago. Got there too late, so I bought it because Becca was praising her so highly.
Avatar 10:46pm Kamp Climax:

I apologize but Perrudin/Stevens and the David Crosby appearance has turned my world upside down.
Avatar 10:46pm TDK60:

Avatar 10:46pm Kamp Climax:

It's like rickie Lee for the first time.
Avatar 10:48pm Kamp Climax:

he was at the stevens/perrudin show, supposedly, and I trust my sources.
Avatar 10:48pm TDK60:

And I see the FM band is tuned to just left of 92; "left of the dial."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm melinda:

Nice radio.
Avatar 10:50pm TDK60:

Wait, all bands look to have a red line in the same place.
Avatar 10:52pm Kamp Climax:

Ok, from tune-yards until now, this has been a set for the ages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Irene Trudel:

TDK60 and Kamp Climax, Crosby was at Becca's show but didn't perform.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Rory:

Great show so far, Irene!
Avatar 10:59pm carlotis:

more fun than the state of the union by a mile!
Avatar 11:01pm TDK60:

I think 3 of those are Fairport Conventioneers.
Avatar 11:02pm Kamp Climax:

Please do not tell me she is about to play the Fall
Avatar 11:02pm Kamp Climax:

I am in heaven
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Rory:

Avatar 11:04pm Kamp Climax:

Irene!!!!! Are you serious? That was the tease of all teases. Are you fucking serious.
Avatar 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

hello Irene and others
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Irene Trudel:

Sorry, i'm not playing The Fall tonight. Didn't mean to tease anyone.
Avatar 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

i thought lock and key was quite Fiona-ish (or- Rose and Apple sound like cousins...)
Avatar 11:13pm carlotis:

Avatar 11:17pm Kamp Climax:

I am kinda stunned right now by the wonderfulness of it all.
  11:22pm steve from gberg:

beautiful show, Irene!
Avatar 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

i had a radio similar to that one when i was around 10? and kept the 4 bands (the 4th one was uhf or something) at the same place because the numbers were mostly worn off and i figured if the fm got moved i'd know where to find my favorite station (wplj?) by the other needles.
Avatar 11:29pm Kamp Climax:

Eno/Byrne wrote an album about Irene's younger life.
  11:31pm herb.nyc:

We need a marathon to fix Irene's radio!
Avatar 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

weird, Irene - my friends and i found the one i had too! (i don't remember where...could've been the bushes...)one of my friends claimed it but soon traded it to me for something i had, and i used it for years.
Avatar 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

...i forgot all about that thing. (& lots of things)
Avatar 11:35pm Kamp Climax:

I miss the 70's. Irene's mom: "Irene hon, you need to get out of the house, why don't you go play in the bushes."
Avatar 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

i remember riding with it playing in my bicycle basket
  11:37pm Richard_D:

I have an old Worldstar radio. it has 2 TV settings, short wave, FM, AM, AIR/PB/WB setting that I have no idea what it does. I use it to listen to NPR
  11:37pm herb.nyc:

I first listened to wfmu on my Technics SA-300(?) receiver, also broked (and since e-cycled)
Avatar 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

yeah my mother used to tell us to get outside unless it was raining. i wonder where parents still do that.
  11:41pm Richard_D:

it only takes 402 D cell batteries. I haven't changed em in a year with no sign of going dead anytime soon
Avatar 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

402 seems like a lot of batteries
  11:44pm Richard_D:

Oh, I almost forgot it has CB as well as A PA. It only weighs about 202 lbs.
Avatar 11:44pm Kamp Climax:

A guy named richard_d playing with old shortwaves means we actually do have Aphex Twin listening in with us to Irene's show. Hell yes!
Avatar 11:44pm Kamp Climax:

There my point is proven.
  11:45pm Richard_D:

ok, I might be off 2 or 3 batteries give it take
Avatar 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

how many horsepower is that radio?
Avatar 11:45pm Kamp Climax:

And all of you wondered how he got all those bleeps and bips in his music.
  11:47pm listnr 126:

yeay Irene!! Thank you for the broadcast.(music and commentary)
  11:47pm Richard_D:

Aphex what?? I only found this station because I watched Sex and Broadcasting on Netflix. I'm listening via the WFMU app on my phone
Avatar 11:48pm Kamp Climax:

I love your videos.
Avatar 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

i always had an idea how he got the zzzzts and toots in his music, but yeah i wondered about the bleeps and bips.
Avatar 11:48pm Kamp Climax:

The one with the kids dancing with weird homemade masks kills me.
  11:49pm Richard_D:

I don't know how much horse power. the only way I can carry it is to put it in a bucket of water and float it somewhere.
Avatar 11:49pm Kamp Climax:

Or to get your roadie to do it.
Avatar 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

aphex twin. you know, the artificial sweetener.
  11:51pm Richard_D:

I only use real sugar or honey. plus I'm about as hip as a pet rock.
Avatar 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

my father can build you a go cart with a trailer for it. you want me to ask?
Avatar 11:52pm Kamp Climax:

We all listen to apex, so we agree your only as hip as a pet rock. That was never a point of contention.
  11:53pm Richard_D:

I could use a trailer. then I make it an old school karaoke machine.
Avatar 11:53pm Kamp Climax:

Judge I rest my case.
  Swag For Life Member 11:54pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene.
Avatar 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

i'll ask him tomorrow. he's drunk right now.
  11:56pm Richard_D:

apex must be in of the disk jockies. the only show I listen to is Irene's. I listen on Tuesdays and download the podcast to listen to at work or in the car
Avatar 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

i was hoping someone who knew about horticulture would get my rose cousins pun. oh well!
Thank you Irene! take care y'all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Irene Trudel:

Hope the State of Your Radio has improved for tonight. "See" you all next week!
Avatar 11:59pm Kamp Climax:

Great show Irene. Good night Aphex.
Avatar 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

(roses and apples are in the same family..."cousins"
-not that i assume anyone cares!)
  11:59pm Richard_D:

I tried just listening to the broadcast during the day. A lot of the stuff is way too sophisticated for me. I'm kinda simple. find something I like and ride it til the tires sal off
  11:59pm listnr 126:

i love you

Good night from Seattle.
Avatar 12:01am coelacanth∅:

Richard i suspect you're Joshing (i'm 12 right now) but you would definitely find other programs to your liking.
Avatar 2:35pm Sean in Bristol UK:

A show of epic proportions, thank you Irene
