THE POMO COMEDY STYLINGS OF IVANA & LENNY

What’s So Funny About Peace, Love and Misunderstanding?
IVANA:  Mike DePippa and Amanda Walk are having the BEST DAY EVER. It must be fun to have a song that EVERYBODY wants to play, like they have with the new Incubus. The new single is called "Adolescents" and it is a perfect Modern Rock summer hit. I swear I can hear the Malibu waves lapping onto the sand in the background.
LENNY:  INCUBUS INCUBUS INCUBUS
LENNY:  Today I will be playing the role of an Alternative Programmer
IVANA:  I'm also thrilled about the new Danger Mouse single, featuring Jack White, called "Two Against One."
LENNY:  INCUBUS INCUBUS INCUBUS
IVANA:  It's "Modern Rock," not Alternative these days. Ok, so you've added Incubus, might I also interest you in some of the other spectacular music available for programming, like Lykke Li (added this week at KROQ), The Wombats, The Joy Formidable, DOM, Biffy Clyro, Death Cab for Cutie and, of course, Adele?
LENNY:  INCUBUS INCUBUS INCUBUS
LENNY:  Next week i will be freezing, not enough room because of how much i am playing Incubus
IVANA:  This really is like a conversation with a programmer. I’m trying to advance the discussion by bringing up amazing music and you’re stonewalling me. But I persevere: My most favorite-est of the bunch, AWOLNATION, is selling LOTS of singles on "Sail" and even more tickets!
LENNY:  I will get around to that SMASH when i stop freezing, please call me in May
IVANA:  And I know you're obsessed with Incubus (is Rennie taking you golfing?) but you can't forget about Naked and Famous or Foster the People, both of whom I saw (and LOVED) at SxSW
LENNY:  INCUBUS INCUBUS INCUBUS..... it's not “Lykke Li” that i will be playing anything else soon
IVANA:  Who are you? When did Anthony Acampora start consulting you? (By the way, congrats to WRXP for making the leap to the Modern Rock panel. Finally)
IVANA:  Maybe when you emerge from your medically induced coma, you can see The Cars with me in May. I'm so excited that they're touring this year!
LENNY:  I AM A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT MY M SCORES ON INCUBUS, I MAY HAVE TO PLAY MORE INCUBUS OLDIES TO WARM THEM UP.... sorry, no room
IVANA:  91X is championing the new single "Sad Song," as is KNRK.
LENNY:  Do you think you can get me Incubus for my summer show, i am rotating them heavily in latenites?
IVANA:  Perhaps you'll join me at Coachella, where Arcade Fire is headlining!
LENNY:  Arcade Fire is not mainstream enough for me, i don't get them and my audience doesn't know who they are, their M scores are low..... i am adding INCUBUS
IVANA:  What about the Beastie Boys record that's hitting next week?
LENNY:  i am not playing Beasties anymore in gold, but if they will play my show, i will consider
IVANA:  who do you have booked for your show?
LENNY:  Cannot talk anymore, my Selector needs oiling, bye
IVANA:  um, bye.
