This is matching my mood perfectly. Thanks Irwin.

How many DJs have JDs?

I.e., how many door jambs have job descriptions?

I don't consider the cash I donate to WFMU to be 'disposable'. I consider it an 'investment expense'.

Irwin, or anyone at the comments, can you tell me what' s playing in the background while Irwing speaks? That bassline...

Yes, I had a procedure done involving the rump roller. At the time I thought it was odd that a piece of medical equipment was made by Caterpillar, but now it makes sense, I think.

@AnAnonymousParty (3:27) i don’t know , but when i did some DIY concrete work on my home, there was a tool called a ‘donkey dick’ by old timers that I rented - and it was an appropriately named device . Essentially a very large pneumatic vibrator to agitate wet concrete and get rid of air bubbles and voids. When a cinder block wall is reinforced with metal bars and concrete in poured down in the hollows between the blocks, said vibrator shakes it down so to speak.

Not sure I’ve uplifted the convo, that’s all I got.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:47pm

@Brendan: Yup, have used it, and the term is not industry specific; it's also used here to refer to the UHF antennas used on portable military radios. I blame the Marines for that phase, apt though it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm

Thanks to Laura for the speedy Photoshop services.

Dear Irwin, it was really nice to meet you last wednesday at the Joe Frank's movie screening. Thank you so much for all your work! Hopefully you can bring Joe back! We need him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm

Actually will air a Joe seg today.

I was checking out Joe's stuff last week, I couldn't get enough! Nothing else quite like it.

Bring him back? Stay away from that Pet Cemetery! That’s old Injun burial grounds - the soil’s gone bitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm

Hmmm....I have used concrete vibrators, but have not heard the term donkey dick applied to them. Guess I just don't do concrete with the right folks. But, aren't donkeys sterile?

Little Danny:


Hey Irwin!
I went to see the J.Frank movie last week since you recommended n also a fan; and I have to say that I am happy that someone is tapping on the world of Joe via film. Was it good? Mmm go see it and is up to you. I found the visuals distracting and sort of... basic, long trippy YouTube videos?The audience was surprisingly basic as well, those individuals that many times JFrank criticized through story. Some of the stories told were not meant to be funny, they were meant to drag you into a disappearing world in which you can exist but instead people laughed!! Or talked! I guess the city is the suburbs...anyway Film is a hard thing to do and it’s open to interpretation. I didnt have any expectations, other than not crash during the snowstorm; but I did expect the voice to meet the eye. They did not.
Love the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm

I dissent from your dissenting view. Loved the film. Recommend it for all Joe fans. And why criticize the audience?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm

Johnzon, conversely, please feel free to ask us to explain what an "LP" was or what "wind your watch" means.

so you survived the great Kennenist purge when a dozen djs were sent to broadcast from an unheated garage and were treated for frostbite before fleeing to Connecticut to form their own short lived pirate radio station... short lived because Ken's agents are everywhere of course...
