Yo Daryl! Sadly must attend a meeting. Will hope to get back in the crazy house ASAP.

Thanks for joining in Jan

Mr F: hope the meeting goes well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Dutchman Jan:

You're welcome Darryl. I have listened to all the other shows, but always the next day
Avatar 1:58pm worldsworstrecords:

I hope you're enjoying them. I think this upcoming episode is the best so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Dutchman Jan:

yes, I am! You make me very curious :-)
Avatar 2:00pm worldsworstrecords:

here we go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Dutchman Jan:

Yes!!! One of my alltime favourite tracks!

Woo!
Avatar 2:01pm worldsworstrecords:

I love this... isn't it wonderful?
Avatar 2:01pm worldsworstrecords:

I must have a listen to his Christmas album, Shatner Claus
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Dutchman Jan:

Yes it is! He hits the spot there!
Avatar 2:02pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Rich in Washington:

I'm such an out of touch doofus that when this song came out, I didn't know it was a cover song. I thought it was some weird Shat reminiscence.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Otis Fodder:

Hello all. Listening while working.
Avatar 2:02pm worldsworstrecords:

I prefer it to the original
Avatar 2:02pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Dutchman Jan:

I want "You'll have time" from that album, played at my funeral!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Rich in Washington:

Me too! I have my own Hannibal Lector type cell because of the music I listen to.
Avatar 2:05pm worldsworstrecords:

Haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Rich in Washington:

someone giving someone a tour of the office "that's Rich - he's the CREATIVE GUY <with airquotes and rolled eyes>" They just look in and keep walking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Dutchman Jan:

lol!
Avatar 2:06pm worldsworstrecords:

lol!
Avatar 2:08pm worldsworstrecords:

Listen! Crossfades and everything!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Rich in Washington:

Wow! I had no idea this existed!
Avatar 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

Ha! It predates the Rock Gently album
Avatar 2:12pm worldsworstrecords:

I'm glad it's new to you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Rich in Washington:

Wow. Just wow. You bring the goods every week! And by goods, I mean the worst.
Avatar 2:16pm worldsworstrecords:

Ah, I'm so pleased you like it Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

That was truly epic level horribleness. Was Halmark a song poem label?
Avatar 2:18pm worldsworstrecords:

"...the license to kill women"!!
Avatar 2:20pm worldsworstrecords:

yes... one of the best song-poem outfits in my opinion
Avatar 2:20pm worldsworstrecords:

Most of their songs use the same half-dozen pre-recorded music beds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Rich in Washington:

I've noticed that on Royal Masters records. Imagine being one of the would-be songwriters and hear the same music bed from your song on someone else's song.
Avatar 2:23pm worldsworstrecords:

I know! Halmark were so cheap! They'd even use the same bed on two songs on the same 45!
Avatar 2:24pm worldsworstrecords:

If you're interested there's a load of info available about the company here: worldsworstrecords.blogspot.com...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Otis Fodder:

Ahhhh, the smooth sounds of Sam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Dutchman Jan:

Thanks, another blog for my roll!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Mr Fab:

I'm back! Just found out about my christmas bonus and raise. Happy xmas to me!

Yep, that Shatner xmas album looks pretty awesome. Never thought I'd see the day where an album credit would read: William Shatner "Silent Night", w/iggy Pop.
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

Mad, isn't it? I must have it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Dutchman Jan:

Ow, sounds like I need to get that one asap!
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Jan
Avatar 2:28pm worldsworstrecords:

Sam's album is one of my absolute favourites, Otis
Avatar 2:28pm worldsworstrecords:

A request from Andy Partridge
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Otis Fodder:

Me too, love that album so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Rich in Washington:

Bless Andy!
Avatar 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

Love him
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Mr Fab:

primitive New Wave fills me with XTC (see what I did there, eh , eh?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

We just got our turkey coupons. That's right - the company's giving us the bird extra early this year!
Avatar 2:31pm worldsworstrecords:

I do, Mr. F!
Avatar 2:31pm worldsworstrecords:

That's nice Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Rich in Washington:

I sure loved that XTC doc. I want to watch it again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Dutchman Jan:

I always feel kinda sorry for turkeys ;)
Avatar 2:32pm worldsworstrecords:

We're trying to get it issued on DVD, we can if we can prove there's enough demand
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Rich in Washington:

DEMAND!
There. Does that help?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Dutchman Jan:

But I must admit: a turkeyburger is the best :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Rich in Washington:

funny that Zappa used to (perhaps sarcastically) champion that Gerry and the Holograms record and now he's about to become a hologram.
Avatar 2:34pm worldsworstrecords:

I'm sure that will Rich!
Avatar 2:35pm worldsworstrecords:

You not having turkey at Christmas then Jan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Dutchman Jan:

I'll probably have turkeyburgers (as my specialty that is)
Avatar 2:37pm worldsworstrecords:

I see!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Dutchman Jan:

Well, Christmas has become a difficult time for me. My wife Willeke died Christmasday 2016 ...
Avatar 2:37pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh mate... I'm so sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Dutchman Jan:

thanks my friend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Rich in Washington:

So sorry to hear, Dutchman Jan!
  2:39pm Listener Robert:

You SURE Irwin's Atrocious Music segment was before your time?
Avatar 2:40pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Robert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Dutchman Jan:

thanks Rich!
Avatar 2:40pm worldsworstrecords:

I only really know Irwin through Songs in the Key of Z
  2:41pm Listener Robert:

It'll take some time before the association with the holiday goes away. Mother died on New Year's Eve...but not recently!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Otis Fodder:

Sorry to hear of your loss Jan. Sending you a big virtual hug my friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Dutchman Jan:

but don't feel awkward to talk about Christmas in my present ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Dutchman Jan:

Didn't you know, Otis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Dutchman Jan:

Well, it doesn't matter. Thank you. accepting the hug in gratitude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm tw2sheds:

I still miss Incorrect Music.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Otis Fodder:

No, sorry, I dropped off social media a couple of times and life, well, has had some ups and downs, back on an up. Sending good thoughts your way this Xmas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Dutchman Jan:

:-)
Avatar 2:45pm worldsworstrecords:

I hope I can make up a little for the gap, tw2sheds
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks the incorrect heavens for musical archives, wfmu.org...
  2:45pm Listener Robert:

I'm wondering if I missed Irwin's tribute to Michelle Boule, or if it's still in preparation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Mr Fab:

Ha, a friend of mine had this Shaun Cassidy album with him lookin all angst-ridden n shit on the cover. tried to move away from his bubblegum image, i guess.
Avatar 2:45pm worldsworstrecords:

...Andy Partridge has two sheds (as does Arthur "two sheds" Jackson)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Dutchman Jan:

You're doing a good job today, imho!
Avatar 2:46pm worldsworstrecords:

I blame Todd Rundgren for it. Mr F
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Mr Fab:

I thought Irwin did do his tribute to Michelle? Wonder what she died of, she must have been pretty young...
Avatar 2:48pm worldsworstrecords:

Thanks Jan!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Otis Fodder:

We did a mini-tribute when I was visiting in February, halfway in the show, featuring our cover of Mr Snuggles, wfmu.org...
I miss Michelle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm tw2sheds:

Low diddle diddle on the b side?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow. I've never actually listened to Incorrect Music, just read about it, also mainly familiar with Irwin via the things he's unearthed and of course his indispensable book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm tw2sheds:

Some of it is archived i think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

I love these pissed off American spoken word records!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Dutchman Jan:

so this is a genre?
Avatar 2:51pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh yes... there's loads of spoken word and political nonsense out there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Rich in Washington:

It should be! WHat to call it? Sick American Music.
  2:51pm Listener Robert:

I heard the mini-tribute you did, thanks. So not only Atrocious but also Incorrect Music was before Rich's time? Born too late!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

and then there's the 'open letter to' genre....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Mr Fab:

irwin is what got me into WFMU. When I first got into internet radio, i would eagerly await each Incorrect Music.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Otis Fodder:

It should be. So many patriotic ramblings. You ssssss aaaaa!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Otis Fodder:

I used to have a few of Irwin's Atrocious Music cassettes in early-mid 1990s.
Avatar 2:53pm worldsworstrecords:

I bet you could issue a fantastic compilation and sell it at Democratic gatherings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

Oh, yeah. I'm a relative newcomer to atrocious radio. My crusty cantankerous nature throws people off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

Or puts them off. I get those mixed up all the time.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Otis Fodder:

And now ladies and gents, my new patriotic number, "The ballad of Michael Cohen".
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Otis Fodder:

Ahhhhh, Fluffy!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Otis Fodder:

Spacebrother Greg was just talking about her last night and wanted to do an entire show/interview with Gloria. Would love that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Rich in Washington:

I used to snag an hour of free airtime every 4th of July, while working the air room board during the closing of station's live coverage of an annual blues fest, so I would play all my crazy, cranky patriotic records for the entire hour.
Avatar 2:55pm worldsworstrecords:

One of my all-time favourites. And Gloria B (Cynthia Frantz) is just lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Dutchman Jan:

This is a inspiring show, WWR! I will go look for Dutch equivelants.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Rich in Washington:

@Otis: must work the words 'soap on a rope' into the lyrics.
Avatar 2:56pm worldsworstrecords:

Og you should... she's just wonderful. And so cool. I interviewed her for one of my WWR books
Avatar 2:56pm worldsworstrecords:

She's had an amazing life
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Otis Fodder:

@Rich, and follow up with the shipment of ropes was lost in transit. Sorry, just soap.
Avatar 2:57pm worldsworstrecords:

So, so glad you're enjoying this Jan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Rich in Washington:

So good. You can't go wrong with a dead pet song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Dutchman Jan:

:-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Otis Fodder:

I like all the mixed bits in the show today Darryl. Great one!!
Avatar 2:58pm worldsworstrecords:

Next week's show is a Christmas special
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Dutchman Jan:

The Dutch equivalent is "Flappy" but that is not as good...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Darryl! Another wonderful Worst Records! God help us in the future indeed!
Avatar 2:58pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Otis... I really appreciate that
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Otis Fodder:

And now, it's time for High Waisted Modernists - www.wfmu.org...

You're so right, Rich

Such wonderful worst-ness, Darryl, loved it.
