Good after-evening.

@Zetti: I'm still looking forward to the Moondog documentary film. Maybe one o' these days...
Avatar 4:10pm Hoboken Jack:

When is Jenny O going to come around again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm The Oscar:

Speaking of WFMU-y docs, anyone hear about this one yet? anthologyfilmarchives.org...

...I even contributed to GoKickstartMe for the thing...
Avatar 4:13pm Roberto:

Did you all survive the Great Squall of 2019?
Avatar 4:15pm Archivist Vivian:

I enjoyed Jenny O. I'll need to look into her stuff.
Avatar 4:16pm Archivist Vivian:

This piece playing now reminds me of the piano stylings of John Larkin (Scatman John) but a bit more dissonant and avantgarde.
Avatar 4:20pm Listening Out There:

The dust ball is your cohost...

Avatar 4:21pm Archivist Vivian:

This dust bunny may be the granddaddy of them all. It needs to be the start of the New Jersey Dust Bunny Museum.
  4:21pm Chucktown Dan:

it fell out of Glen Jones's navel .

@ListeningOutThere A Moondog doc would be wonderful.

In other words, all that crap in the back of the junk drawer in the kitchen.
Avatar 4:30pm Irwin:

It had whiskers, LL.
  4:33pm Laura L:

And a fluffy tail and big ears?
Avatar 4:33pm Archivist Vivian:

That's one tough bunny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Alison Porchnik:

Wasn't a pooka?
Avatar 4:34pm Irwin:

LL: You saw it on Instagram?
  4:36pm Laura L:

Nah, I don't Insta nothing.
Avatar 4:37pm Irwin:

You don't even ICON.
Avatar 4:39pm Archivist Vivian:

Dust bunnies? On Instagram? I'm game.
  4:39pm Laura L:

Nope, not even.
Avatar 4:43pm Irwin:

You don't EVEN.
Avatar 4:47pm Fredericks:

Irwin, I really appreciate you including the Roches in your recent playlists. I didn't realize how much I missed hearing them. Even with cheesy Eighties drum fills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm diciassette:

Lovedust weird and woozy. Black postcards/black champagne. Swedish fish. Renee is crying mermaid eyes, 1995. Rememories. Dizzy orange peel. Romantica.
Avatar 4:50pm Archivist Vivian:

They're a nice group. I always like being introduced to new artists on WFMU. I've found so many!
Avatar 4:53pm Jeff Moore:

Definitely great to hear some Roches re-surfacing. I enjoyed hearing "Love Radiates Around" even though "Another World" was the only Roches album I didn't immediately take to when it was released – it seemed horrifically overprocessed compared to those great Fripp-produced albums.

But basically any Roches is better than no Roches, and it's good to hear this one with later ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Ike:

For a second there, "when Russia was white" brought something *very* different to mind that what I'm sure Blossom Dearie meant, given the KGB President-for-Life's reactionary whip-up-the-mob methods.
Avatar 4:54pm Archivist Vivian:

I've got to be scooting. Thanks, Irwin and everyone else! Bye <:
Avatar 4:55pm Irwin:

Adios, Archivist lady.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Ike:

"Guilty pleasure"? Irwin, you're damaging your own brand. I didn't think you felt guilt about *anything*.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm coelacanth∅:

you could use well-structured reusable grocery bags, like the people in civilized countries do.
Avatar 5:22pm SSS:

YOU ARE SINGING MY SONG!!! I despise the plastic bags you describe. I NEVER use them (anymore) for several years. An abomination to the environment!
Avatar 5:25pm SSS:

Koko seems to agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm coelacanth∅:

...though i get plastic bags occasionally when i need one to line my kitchen or bathroom trash bin. (and it probably hurts the environment less than a paper bag does)
  5:46pm Santos L Halper:

Nice one, Irwin, top 5 Airplane for me
Avatar 5:47pm Irwin:

I'm fading the endless jam that closes the track, Santos. Merry Nixmas!
  5:49pm spodiodi:

nice one
  5:51pm Santos L Halper:

D'oh! I want my endless jam!

  10:26am Breezeway:

Thanks for the Swan Dive Mr Chusid. And it was 2 weeks i was asking for them to be played, not eighteen weeks. Nice bit of humour there on your part.
