sufferwords, if I am honest, one of the most admirable traits of Josh Kantor and his wife Mary is that they have done their show for 111 days straight to help people through the pandemic on a zero dollar budget. The baseball components of the show are a wonderful addition that takes me back to those Denny matthews on the AM Radio days.

  1:39am SSteve:

Ira, I know you already played Barbara Manning with S.F. Seals, but if you have her solo album One Perfect Green Blanket, Straw Man would fit the baseball-adjacent theme.
  1:39am BH:

now that I think about it, with the Roberto Clemente song going... are there a lot of songs whose lyrics are pretty much "this song is about a specific famous person"? maybe we're too cynical to do that these days but..

Avatar 1:45am RabidRabbit:

@BH The best song about a specific famous person is "The Parable of Glen McGrath's Haircut" by an Australian band "TISM". It's also about a cricket player so sort of fits into the baseball theme, hehe:)

  2:01am Mark G:

Any truth to the rumor that YLT are part of the mysterious sixth ownership group to submit a bid for the Mets??
  2:02am BH:

Denny has all the power of institutional memory because he's been around 50 years and also a lot of ability for figuring out what could happen next.

The radio teams not traveling on road games is sort of a tribute to old time broadcasts inspired by the whole situation. So maybe some of the non-traveling home broadcasters get some extra road games this year if they don't need to fly.

I will definitely not be there. You are correct. But I am considering a MLB TV subscription just so I can tune in and hear Josh play during the games. I may need to write the commissioner and tell him that's why I subscribed.

Gotta leave the party for a bit...new patient just arrived and needs my attention.

This show is so great, I’m a bartender and we close at 10pm these days so I come home and dive into this goodness Love your show Ira!
Avatar 2:35am rjwilsonkc:

Good call Eric, that bass is jammin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36am E. R. Price:

It's great that there are still stations like this out there. I listened off and on today (thanks to 7IS) and WFMU is doing great things. Might just have to donate and make this a regular stop!
  Swag For Life Member 2:38am Ira:

Welcome, E.R.--there is nothing like WFMU. I say that as a long-time listener who is thrilled to do shows here.
  2:38am Tookie Wuthry Guffy:

where can you listen to past games like the prison said radio announced baseball games? are there archives or classics?

Oh yeah I also went to Walter Matthau's house a couple of times. So both versions of Oscar Madison are covered.
  2:44am BH:

some people have uploaded radio calls of games to YouTube because it's YouTube and a variety of things are up there
Avatar 2:45am rjwilsonkc:

This show has been great Ira, thank you.
Avatar 2:45am rjwilsonkc:

I love a good polka.
  2:47am SSteve:

Yeah, thanks so much, Ira. I'm so glad I got led here from 7IS. This is what radio is supposed to be. (BTW, I was in a band where one of our songs was about how crappy radio is because they don't play Bettie Serveert or Yo La Tengo. https://music.apple.com/us/album/radio/267293499?i=267294627)
Avatar 2:47am RTR:

Roberto: I asked in the 7IS chat if anyone else was old enough to remember Jack Klugman and friends getting sloshed on Match Game PM after I saw your earlier comment. ;)
Avatar 2:47am glennfromglendale:

Someone needs to make sure Ken Burns hears this show so he can realize he should have hired Ira to handle the tunes for “Baseball”
Avatar 2:48am Roberto:

Ha! Yeah speaking of Match Game, Brett was with him when he came over.
  Swag For Life Member 2:48am Ira:

@Roberto: !!!!
  Swag For Life Member 2:49am Ira:

Thanks so much for listening and thanks for commenting and thanks to Josh for making this show special. Enjoy the last 10 minutes!

Pandemic plusses - discovering great things like 7IS, WFMU, and communities of folks who love the same things I do--baseball and music! Tonight's show has been outstanding, Ira!
Avatar 2:50am Paper Moog:

Speaking of which, Billy Martin could have a side project called Clay Carroll where all the parts are ceramic percussion devices
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50am E. R. Price:

And, yeah. I put some in the till. Gotta keep freeform radio free!
Avatar 2:55am rjwilsonkc:

What's this show called. I'll donate too.
Avatar 2:55am glennfromglendale:

Agreed ER, the pandemic had me trying to Dj to myself for too long. I revisited WFMU and took my hand off the wheel. Incredible brain food and soul fodder in awful times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56am E. R. Price:

I just donated to the station overall.
  Swag For Life Member 2:56am Ira:

Avatar 2:57am Roberto:

Sry, no moar donations for a while from me. Wife's already pissed I donated in March.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57am E. R. Price:

Yeah, Glenn. I've been trying too hard to curate music to get me through the day rather than enjoying the freedom of just listening and the thrill of discovery.
  Swag For Life Member 2:57am Ira:

Not soliciting donations! Only answering questions.
  2:58am Rik:

Thanks for a fun (late) night, Ira! ⚾️

Donation made...and I love stickers and T-shirts. Thanks for exposing Josh to more folks Ira.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59am E. R. Price:

Great job, Ira! This has been a blast!
  2:59am JackieH:

Got back just in time for the end! Great show Ira....I'll try to listen more when I'm on the night shift in the ER.
Avatar 2:59am RTR:

Thanks so much Ira. Great show!
  2:59am paulsuwan:

Thanks for a great show, Ira! It flew by!
Avatar 2:59am rjwilsonkc:

Great show indeed. Loved it.
  3:00am Kristine:

Thank you!! That was a lot of fun
  3:00am Derek:

Thanks Ira, for the baseball themed show! 7th-Inning Stretchers are appreciative!
Avatar 3:00am rjwilsonkc:

See ya Eric, KMR, Derek, RTR and all the stretchy timers.
  3:01am JackieH:

I'll be sleeping off the night shift during 7IR later. See you on Thursday.

Great Job, Ira. Hit the Showers.

Thanks Ira, great last part of the show. I'll check the archives for the beginning
