Into the orange ...
  3:02pm Listener Robert:

I see by WFMU's main page that you already know WMFU is down. I was already offline, trying to get The World's Worst Records on Sheena's Jungle, which required a remote reset by Service Electric Cable of Sparta, using up that whole hour, then I turned on the radio to dead air, felt like I couldn't win.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Handy Haversack:

Steak and carrot muffins? Irwin, are you in luck! I have a muffin recipe that calls for 100% chuck and includes chopped carrots in the batter. I could bake you up a batch. (Some call it "meatloaf.")

Will do. Thanks, Irwin. Every since they put me in this nifty can, I get mistaken for Spam (a lot ...).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Aw, man! The stream just gets a moment of dead air instead of the noble EAS tone.
  4:25pm Multi-scopic sensation:

this trak is awesome
Avatar 4:25pm Monica:

Irwin, had to go back and check (because gray cell diminishment) but I was the one who made the mistake of choosing Heartbreaker for Hoof-N-Mouth in 2004. And yes - deceptively difficult! Thank goodness you were there on drums. Never heard the demo - an excellent song in skilled hands:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I submit this from NewHampshuh for comparison re the vinyl fetish :youtu.be...

Jeff Lewis, The Disease of LPs, new albulm, Bad Wiring. Great song, common affliction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm The Oscar:

Can attest: getting into vinyl as a teenager in the late '90s was AWESOME. I can remember buying original press Mothers of Invention albums because I didn't want to shell out for the CDs. Pure madness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Handy Haversack:

@The Oscar, that's awesome. I couldn't quite afford to go deep when I was younger -- and def. would have lost them all before now! But I remember feeling the call ...

  4:51pm wendy del formaggio:

Irwin, take it from me, DJs at other stations also have DJ anxiety dreams. Mine usually go like this: the song is about to end and suddenly I am ACROSS TOWN, miles from the studio! Aaack! Dead air!
  Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Andrew_in_WI:

Ooh, this one is fire!
Avatar 4:52pm Irwin:

Wendy: And you're NEKKID!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Is it me - or did Blakey just fold Ginger Baker into something tiny & put him in his back pocket. (& I like Baker.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

You mean - DJs aren't nekkid - ??
  4:53pm wendy del formaggio:

Irwin, that part doesn’t bother me. You can be nekkid on the radio! (Wasn’t that a NLRH song?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Wendy... and when you do get to the studio, it's the smooth jazz station!
Avatar 4:55pm Irwin:

Blakey's greatest handicap is that he only had two arms and two legs.
