Hello Irwin. Happy I can catch your show live today!

Good Morgan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm AnAnonymousParty:

Most professional musicians wear overalls, because you never know when you might have to transpose a piece into a higher key,and that could involve heavy lifting. You don't want to spoil nice duds doing that.

That's "malware," not Mal Waldron. Do not confuse...
  3:14pm Marc15:

Irwin, if you start your show at 3 PM with a “bad” song, and play progressively better songs as your show goes on, by 5:55 PM you should be playing the best song ever recorded in the history of music

secret agent man but with better lyrics

Watch out, the piano player is backing up.
  3:21pm yippie:

he can play his own backing up alarm song
Avatar 3:25pm RobinSays:

I like this Nick Waterhouse song. I don't think I've heard him before. It kinda reminds me of Bob Seeger System's "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" but toned down. BTW Irwin, this is Robin Eisgrau. i had to change my name due to a little sign in wonkiness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Irwin:

Hello, RobinSaysEisgrau. I recognize your penmanship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Irwin:

Is "penmanship" triggering?
Avatar 3:27pm RobinSays:

Ha ha. Well I've never heard the term "penpersonship." :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Mark Hurst:

I like that Malware Invasion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Passaic River Blues:

Gimme that Joe Frank.
Avatar 3:30pm glenn:

if joe sees his shadow, will there be two more weeks of winter?
  3:33pm prudy:

oh Irwin, don't play with us about Joe Frank!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Irwin:

{demonic laughter!}
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Webhamster Henry:

That's just Irwin's equivalent of clickbait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Irwin:

Mark, perhaps "Malware Invasion" should be the new theme for TT?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Mark Hurst:

Excellent suggestion
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Irwin:

Seems appropriate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm thatpatsmith:

Yes, that Erika Wennerstrom track somethin' else!

Norah singing Bobbie, love it.

damn fine tunes today, Irwin, naturally.
  3:45pm John from Florham Park:

Another great program on this fine station

love the Mercury Rev covers

Is Lind the "Butterfly of Love" guy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm AnAnonymousParty:

Is this Johnny Cash at 45rpm?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Irwin:

Bob Lind wrote "Elusive Butterfly," "Cheryl's Going Home," and other light classics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Webhamster Henry:

And that's why I though it WAS Elusive Butterfly!
  3:53pm John from Florham Park:

What the hell is that mashup I am hearing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Webhamster Henry:

You are closely following the musical trajectory as outlined with Duane.
Avatar 3:53pm BerkeleyGuy:

I love mashups. This is a new one for me.
  3:55pm Listener Robert:

I guessed the title correctly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Stevel:

Sharp mashup.

I thought maybe Ken was going to drill one of Andy's teeth and ask him "Is it safe?" over and over.
  4:03pm MONEYBAG$:

Dave "Killer" Carlson?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Webhamster Henry:

Maybe you can do a bit of one of Joe Frank's phone calls.
  4:04pm Laura L:

That's great news about the Joe Frank docu; thanks for that.
  4:09pm Bela:

Hello :)

Hello yourself Bella

One of the best loser songs of all time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Aboot :
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hmmm...a collection of loser songs. Would that be a good marathon premium?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Very interesting - & good.
...Used to thinking of Waits as a singularity - but would be interesting to have a qualified person (not me) break down & illustrate his antecedents & relations - direct or otherwise...

i used 'naturally' earlier. that may come close to being a no-no. but i stand firm in my resolve that it was correctly used.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Mr. Pumpy:

A little before four I was streaming the app through bluetooth in my car and it listed the Beatles/Led Zep mashup, but was playing some lengthy out jazz piece. What was that? I can't seem to find it on the playlist. It was acoustic jazz, but whacked out at times...maybe a guitar here or there. Irwin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Irwin:

Mr. P: Probably the Avishai Cohen Trio.
  4:42pm mr_donutsu:

This is kind of mock White Hills.
In a good way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Irwin:

Sunflower Bean is ... "versatile."
Avatar 4:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I was momentarily startled thinking you were playing the band Tame Impala
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Mr. Pumpy:

Yes, Irwin! Thanks. Weird...the app seems to have time traveled about 15 minutes. When I went back to the FM dial you were calling the songs from the previous set. Avishai Cohen Trio...killer! Thanks for all the great tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Irwin:

Someone in the past surely compiled a marathon premium of bands recording songs named after other bands.
Avatar 4:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

And bands named after other songs
  4:50pm berbo:

You'd need several disks just for the Wesley Willis catalog.
Avatar 4:51pm Fredericks:

I was hearing "there were no Russian discussions."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Irwin:

LBL singer is Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast.

  5:12pm cluebucket:

this song is good and is like if smash mouth were good :-3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm zopa:

wait a minute... smash mouth isn't good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Random thought: If your name was Mark Down, you'd probably get a lot of teasing about that. That's not a cool kind of name like Jack Hammer would be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Phillippe Bastille:

I like the baseball pitcher Mike Armstrong as a fitting name. A pitcher named Homer Bailey, not so much
Avatar 5:22pm glenn:

how about homer bush? a decent, if short lived second baseman.
Avatar 5:22pm glenn:

i mean his career was short lived.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Phillippe Bastille:

notta lotta homers outta Homer. 11 in 1274 at bats according to BaseballReference
Avatar 5:28pm glenn:

more cowbell.
Avatar 5:28pm BerkeleyGuy:

Excellent. The first 2 BOC albums were always my favs
Avatar 5:29pm glenn:

homer bush called the blue jays g.m. a pimp during a radio interview, and was traded about a week later.
Avatar 5:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm playing Tame Impala
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Irwin:

Richard Meltzer wrote the lyrics for "Beautiful as a Foot."

DJ Irwin

WSP, eh.
Avatar 5:35pm BerkeleyGuy:

He co-wrote a couple of songs on the first and second album.
  5:36pm Andy the painter:

wasn’t there some kind of “meta”/knowing/arch consortium between BOC and the Dictators?
same producer, Sandy Perlman?
or am i making this up from too many paint fumes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Irwin:

Does anyone know if Patti Smith wrote lyrics for BOC, or was there some connection?
  5:37pm Ochre Ogre:

Many stoned nights listening to this B O C LP. Thought they were fro Canada cuz the LP jacket was Canadian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Webhamster Henry:

Speaking of Sunflower Bean ( or Tame Impala), it's Julia Cumming's birthday today (bassist/singer of Sunflower Bean).
  5:38pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Thank you so much for playing this Blue Oyster Cult album. Although listening to the whole thing, I'm a be late for work.
Avatar 5:38pm BerkeleyGuy:

Patti Smith wrote Baby Ice Dog on the second album
Avatar 5:39pm BerkeleyGuy:

I think she was dating Eric Bloom at the time
Avatar 5:41pm glenn:

how is it canadian?
  5:42pm John from Florham Park:

@pete tell them you were listening to WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Irwin:

This Annette Peacock album came out the same year (1972) as BOC #1.
Avatar 5:44pm TDK60:

The only connection I know with Smith and B.O.C. was, she was friends with them. At a gig of theirs, she got overexcited, ran onto stage, had to be restrained.
Avatar 5:46pm Monica:

Irwin, do you have any bluesy rock stuff you can play today:) Enjoying as always.
  5:49pm Breezeway:

Mr Chusid, will you be playing any Swan Dive today mate?
  5:50pm Breezeway:

I mean, you did play a track from Evidence last week, so, anyfinks possible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Irwin:

Didn't bring any Diving Swans today and we've got nada in the library, which is why no one else plays them! Next week, promise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm zopa:

algorithms be damned!
  5:58pm Breezeway:

Cheers pal, i'll be here to hear. Thx for the Peacock and Lyman Woodward in particular.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm chris:

thanks, Irwin, for another fun show today.
