efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with a cut from the ā€˜70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: Iā€™m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

  Tue. 9/23/08 11:52pm efd:

Hi Sybil! i'm going to leave it at wildcard... I don't think they've got a shot at the division at this point.
  Tue. 9/23/08 11:52pm soupy:

I heard Papi was rocking his goggles.
  Tue. 9/23/08 11:54pm efd:

he's gotta keep the champagne out of his eyes!
  Tue. 9/23/08 11:55pm Sybil:

"Interesting" isn't the word.
  Tue. 9/23/08 11:56pm toni daytona:

Toni/Miss B, the sports talk is just getting started!

And yes, I'm pleased to announce that I will be returning to this same time slot for the new schedule.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:00am Sybil:

Well, that's a relief.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:01am efd:

Yeah, now I can start planning my postseason coverage.

Not to mention my election night blowout!
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:03am Sybil:

Dodgers lead 10-1, top of 5th.

I wonder if John is at this game?
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:04am Sybil:

Bottom of 5th, rather.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:08am toni d.:

efd----thank you for your time,,ginte hugz & kisses see ya next week
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:09am Sybil:

And we should be celebrating the 27th why, hmmmmm?
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:18am efd:

umm, well, because it's Meat Loaf's birthday?

(among other people's)
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:21am efd:

Oh, and Commenteer John emailed me earlier today - he is flying back from CA at this hour, but he said he made it to the game on Sunday. Unfortunately, the Dodgers lost 1-0 in 11 innings.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:23am Sybil:

Oh, I saw that game. I was cleaning the room while watching. The room got VERY clean.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:31am efd:

haha.

John was the one in the Manny-dreads Dodger cap.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:34am Sybil:

Oh, yeah, that guy.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:51am the foxy blonde:

evan one last thing,,,i really enjoy hangin with you every tues nite,,,its fun!!!! PEACE OUT
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:54am Jessica:

I set a timer, to remind me to turn on the show tonight. Then I accidentally ate some cayenne and got lip blisters, 'cause I'm dainty like that, so then took some real live antihistamines and ā€” holy heck, has that alarm been going off for 2hrs already?

whee.
  Wed. 9/24/08 12:55am efd:

Jessica, a happy how-do-you-do to you!!
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:00am Ken From Hyde Park:

The Monkees TV show was fun to watch when I was a kid. Each week's episode would have them chasing around in sped-up motion during one of their songs, a-la Benny Hill.
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:03am Sybil:

It just kind of came up on your MP3 player, did it? Just kind of grew there?
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:03am Sybil:

That is pretty creepy.
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:07am efd:

well, yeah... I had dumped about 500 random songs from my home mp3 library onto my player, and there it was on my way home tonight. I wasn't really paying attention til about halfway through since I was reading the paper, and suddenly I stopped and re-started it to make sure I really heard what I thought I heard!
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:09am Sybil:

And... the Dodgers win, 10-1. Joe Torre's magic number is 3. I'm psyched.

Player of the game: NOMAH!
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:12am Sybil:

So Jessica, getting back to those hot pepper blisters - do antihistimines actually help, or just knock you out?
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:14am efd:

which would Yankee fans hate more in the World Series - Red Sox vs Mets, or Sox vs. Torre and the Dodgers?

Ken - hi, and thanks for your comment! Monkees had better music than the Benny Hill show, I think (not that you were suggesting otherwise).
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:55am Sybil:

They're apparently Danish, so I think you got it right.. (nej pronounced like "nay")
  Wed. 9/24/08 1:56am efd:

ah, thanks!

and goodnight ,everyone!
