The man's face looks like a photo pasted on. His head's too big.
  2:57pm Listener Robert:

That's not the only part that looks collage-like.
  2:57pm Pablo Smith:

please, no more christmas songs
  3:03pm Listener Robert:

In the 1980s nobody I listened to on WFMU played Christmas music. Except a little in the summer.
  3:03pm Listner Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

IRWIN? what are you doing there???
  3:04pm Listner Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

im in shock IRWIN is doing a christmas show
  3:04pm Listner Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

im happy:) i missed KEN this morning and the HazMat Report
  3:08pm Listner Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

no x-mas songs please IRWIN. im begging you
  3:08pm Listener Robert:

They had "Christmas Dragnet" instead of HazMat.
  3:15pm Pablo Smith:

am i the only one who reckons Irwin is the artist behind these weekly works of art?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Alison Porchnik:

@Pablo, if you look closely you'll see that this one is a self portrait. I don't know who that kid is though.
  3:17pm Listner Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

hey! that was a great song by "amber arcades" im going to look for it on itunes
  3:17pm Pablo Smith:

well yeah, its Irwin clearly.
  3:18pm Pablo Smith:

its probably Irwin in childhood
  3:19pm Listener Robert:

You mean the one pulling the sled?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Alison Porchnik:

I think you're right. I've seen some childhood pictures, there is an uncanny resemblance. Except for the smile.
  3:20pm Pablo Smith:

i guess as its the last show of the year, this is the big reveal. No more artwork in 2020
Avatar 3:21pm Pierre Delecto:

Speaking of Christmas, I dream about elk.
Avatar 3:21pm Irwin:

Pablo: I have a backlog of Stormville art. You ain't seen nuffin'.

Pierre: TMI.
  3:22pm Pablo Smith:

fair 'nuff
  3:23pm Carmichael:

Heya Irwin and radio pals. Enjoying the week off and glad to hear the normal abnormality of FMU.
  3:23pm Pablo Smith:

speaking of backlogs, please excuse me for a few minutes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Alison Porchnik:

That horse looks like a cross between a horse and an allosaurus.
Avatar 3:24pm Pierre Delecto:

Speaking of Christmas, don't ever lend Ken a bar of soap. You'll never get it back.

....in the deep midwinter when the sky is too dark
faces merrily bloated like disproportional cut & pastes
in a too small two colored sleigh
pulled by s black equestrian allosaur
with permagrins in the grim grim park
racing on expressionist blades
amidst scraping trees
we smile like we're pleased...
our jolly racing folly
last Christmas day of the decade
21st century triple post irony
racing away today on Irwin's page...

There will be three hours less of Xmas ditties this year. We can laugh...all the way down that slippery slope.

I requested O Come Emanuel by mail

Someone at the station sent me a VHS of that movie Emmanuelle.
Avatar 3:49pm Irwin:

Spoiler: I do have a Chanukah song, which many of you will hate (and you won't be suspected of anti-Semitism if you do).
Avatar 3:52pm Pierre Delecto:

Speaking of Chanukah, I'm glad no one here uses the word "boner." That word makes me uncomfortable.
Avatar 3:58pm Pierre Delecto:

Here you go. "Bonus." He almost said it.
Avatar 4:04pm Irwin:

The Chanukah song is next. The beginning will make you (i.e., me) cringe. Then it gets better, but I'll forgive if you feel a bit queasy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Alison Porchnik:

I'm already feeling queasy. Sympathetic queasiness.
  4:05pm Carmichael:

My dad used that word when he made a mistake. We sniggered like Beavis &Butthead..
  4:05pm spodiodi:

rock out
  4:07pm Polly Onymous:

wait - is Nachum in the house?

Dag -- missed the Fall *and* R. Stevie Moore while at the grocery store.
  4:27pm spodiodi:

singer has a lot of John Denver in them
Avatar 4:29pm Pierre Delecto:

I like when people come here to discuss music. It is not a place to deal with anger management issues, which are rightly addressed at the family dinner table.
Avatar 4:38pm Irwin:

Pierre, is there anything you DON'T want to hear?
  4:38pm Pablo Smith:

  4:39pm thelma blitz:

ani mamin means I beliee in the coming of the Messian though he tarry, though he takes his sweet time. it is the credo of Judaism. Moyshe Oysher does a great one.

Menudo. Thank you for asking.

do you know The Hebrew Hammer.? Great satire. Offended lots of people:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfHuDQi9CUs

I went with an Amaro Old Fashioned, FYI.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Acme remind bit of Ginger Baker Trio with Charlie Haden & Bill Frisell.
  5:49pm Pablo Smith:

thanks for the christmas present Irwin
Avatar 5:50pm Irwin:

Acme is an old album, '90s I think. Some great stuff on it. Imaginative arrangements, covers and originals. Some echoes of Raymond Scott on here.

gurr, new to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Alison Porchnik:

That sounds interesting, Jeezy. But is it too sweet? Seems like it would be unless you used something like Cynar, the artichoke liqueur.
Avatar 5:53pm Irwin:

Thank you all for spending 3hrs (or a portion thereof) of Xmas 2019 with me. Thanks for the comments, thanks for those who make pledges to support the station, and see you all next year. MWAH!
Avatar 5:54pm Pierre Delecto:

Just like your money, your kisses are no good here.
Avatar 5:54pm Jeezy:

It IS a touch sweet, Alison. I should have reduced the simple syrup a tad. But the amaro and whiskey cut the sweetness. Also, a couple dashes of chocolate bitters..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This is Nilssoneesh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Alison Porchnik:

Oh, you mixed it. That makes more sense. I was thinking you subbed Amaro for whiskey. Sounds delicious w/ the chocolate bitters. Will have to try that!
Avatar 5:56pm coelacanth∅:

i'm waiting till i get to the pub. jameson with lemon-ginger-echinacea juice and probably various shots, sipped, as is my habit.
Avatar 5:57pm coelacanth∅:

i'll take your share then, Pierre
Avatar 5:57pm coelacanth∅:

(of both)
  5:57pm spodiodi:

gracias, Irwin!
Avatar 5:57pm mariano:

Not much of a drinker these days, @coela, but when I do have the occasional drink it's Jameson or whatever Irish whiskey is available. Thanks so much Irwin - Happy Holidays to you and all!
Avatar 5:57pm Jeezy:

Yes! it's a good recipe. You can google it with liquor.com site.
PS: Shameless plug alert:
You can get superb cocktails like this starting tomorrow eve at my new bar in Brooklyn, Fiction at 308 Hooper St! :-)
