Product Description

This stunning CD contains greatest hits, highlights, and lowlights from Jim Nayder's "The Annoying Music Show" heard on National Public Radio (NPR). Most of the annoying selections have also been featured on NPR's "Weekend Edition" with Scott Simon, where Mr. Nayder is a regular contributor, when they don't change the studio locks. Whether it's Pa Cartwright crooning "As Time Goes By" as a Bosa Nova, or Abdala Bucaram (the deposed President of Ecuador's) tribute to Elvis, this CD is the perfect gift for a blissfully unaware loved one, lousy boss, or ex-spouse. Mr. Nayder warns that no small children, kittens, fragile plants, or nuclear devices should be in the same room, when the CD is playing. Ear plugs are highly recommended.


"The Annoying Music Show" has brought public radio to lower depths than ever imagined. -- Jodi Applegate, NBC's Later Today Show

Every life has a story. Unfortunately Jim Nayder's life annoys everyone else's. -- Janet Cawley, A & E's Biography Magazine

From Ben Kim -"Illinois Entertainer" (Dec. 1999) "If you listen to NPR on Saturday afternoons, which you should, you may have heard "The Annoying Music Show." True to it's name, host Jim Nayder manages to dig up some of the funniest, lousiest, butt-ugly music ever committed to vinyl, tape, or aluminum, and he does it EVERY WEEK! Now Nayder has decided to inflict even more on us with "The Annoying Music Show's The Annoying Music CD!", a 23 track collection of some of the worst stuff from his weekly national show. -- Ben Kim Illinois Entertainer

I think "The Annoying Music Show CD" is the best CD ever produced, anytime, anywhere! -- Jim Nayder, Producer & Host of The Annoying Music Show CD

It takes a special listener to appreciate annoying music. When you find him or her please tell us. -- Bob Ruff, ABC World News Tonight

Jim Nayder is the funniest person I know, and I've met Jerry Lewis. -- Scott Simon, National Public Radio

Lorna Grisby "People Magazine" "Jim Nayder's "The Annoying Music Show" is one of public radio's funniest and fastest growing programs. It entertains, while setting your dog's teeth on edge" -- People Magazine, Lorna Grisby

Robert Feder, Chicago Sun Times Critic (Nov. 3-99 page 61) "Jim Nayder, the supremely sardonic host of public radio's "The Annoying Music Show" on NPR serves up 23 "greatest hits" of the world's worst songs on "The Annoying Music Show CD." You haven't lived until you've heard Abdala Bucaram, deposed president, sing "jailhouse Rock" or Sweden's "Singin' Sensation" Eilart Pilarm ruin "All Shook Up" -- Robert Feder Chic.

Please buy this CD. I don't care what kind of music you listen to, there is something on it to offend you, annoy you, and/or make you collapse into helpless, gibbering hysteria. I originally bought this to send to a friend, to get even with him for sending me "Philosophy of the World" by the Shaggs. Well, he'll have to get his own copy, because I'm keeping this one.
What a load of exquisite rubbish! The standouts are the hilarious "My Bathroom is a Private Kind Of Place" and the tortuous "Why Doesn't Daddy Come Home?" which fried at least ten percent of my brain cells and spoiled all the food in my refrigerator. It's all oddly compelling, like a bad car wreck--you know it's horrible, but you just can't turn away. It's evil, it's wretched, it's awful, it's practically apocalyptic...and I loved it.
Half of my hearing is gone from listening to way too much loud music in my misspent youth. While listening to this CD, there were moments when I wished it were ALL gone. You will too. Whether you know it or not, you NEED this CD.

As a teacher, graduation time has usually meant a long search for special student & co-worker gifts that are different, personal, and memorable (and under $20!) This year, I decided to give a gift that NO ONE would forget. The Annoying Music CD. What a hit! It not only generates big belly laughs and "moans" as it's unwrapped, I found the CD to be a fantastic "conversation starter" at the dozens of graduation parties I'm currently touring. Everybody starts to argue about "what's the most annoying song ever recorded" and "did Bob Dylan atually sing with Tiny Tim?" (he did and the CD proves it!) My students seem to appreciate that I recognize their sense of humor, making the gift more personal than a traditional graduation gift such as blank notebook to "write your journal this summer" etc! Annoying Music is also educational . . . it teaches my students how not to practice and achieve lasting fame! Thanks Jim Nayder & NPR for solving my gift dilemma this
year. Hmmmm I've got a couple of weddings coming up . . . do you think!

I first learned about annoying music when I heard Jim Nayder interviewed by Scott Simon on his NPR program. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Singing Sisters from Syracuse, Lorn Greene attempting a bosa-nova version of As Time Goes By, and a love ballad to a bathroom? It was so funny & amazing I couldn't turn it off. When I heard there was a CD of this annoying stuff, I jumped at the chance to buy one for my unsuspecting friend. Amazingly we are still friends (I think) When I heard the actual CD I had to buy another one for myself, because I think it will keep the burglars away. Go for it. It's like taking a ride on a new and exciting roller coaster. You scream, laugh, cry, cover your head . . . and then you want to ride again!
Beth Jacobs, New York

I have long admired Mr. Nayder's efforts on NPR to bring only the most annoying selections to his audience, which proudly includes me (and in fact my entire family gathers around the radio each week). We were thrilled to find his CD of great, ugly, annoying music, as well as highlights from the weekly show. I especially like the following "classics" on the CD . . . "Juanita Banana" by J.R. Corvington, "Hey Jude" by those Fabulous Conti Kids, "Mindsticker" by Mr. accent, Manfred Voss, and of course "Jail House Rock" by the deposed Abdala Bucaram, who I'm certain was deposed because of his singing talents, or lack thereof. I could go on, there's so many awful tracks, but I think I need to lie down. This CD should be heard in small doses, or when you want uninvited guests to leave. Keep up the great work Mr. Nayder!

I always dreaded the start of Holiday shopping season, which
seems to begin earlier and earlier. But believe it or not, I've
just about completed my list, and I never had to leave the house (in fact, leave my bedroom). Finding the stunning NPR Radio show's Annoying Music CD, which I've enjoyed (perhaps survived is a better word?), on amazon was a God-send, and I'm an agnostic.
The music(?) on this CD is so horribly beautiful, it makes you laugh till you are tearing up like a tired cat. Simply, I ordered annoying CDS . . . and now have great, funny presents for my co-workers, my nephew, 4 friends around the world, my brother, and a former boss I really don't like (he has NO sense of humor!)
And honoring my right to be lazy, I had them giftwrapped at amazon by the amazon elves, or elvises?

And to mix up the annoying gifts-I also found the Annoying Music HOLIDAY CD here at amazon, which will also take care of a couple of December birthdays, not to mention Hanukkah and Christmas, &
obscure holidays I have never heard of ("Christopher Columbus
Discovers DISCO?") And you have not lived a complete life until you've heard the Chutte Middle School Orchestra's version o MacArthur Park. For 10 minutes, they are so close to hitting the right notes, in-between drum solos and parents cheering wildly, that I thought I had been transported into a David Lynch movie. You couldn't recreate this music (not that you would want to!) as it is as complicated and annoying as setting a VCR, or opening the celophane wrap on a new CD. And to be honest, I bought the Annoying Music CDs for myself, as I might want help clearing my home of guests, when those folks on eggnog just won't leave. Now, I wonder if amazon sells earplugs?
