No, but the harvest loon might.

KJ lost it around this time. Bad distortion pedal.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:12pm efd:

But then they found it again!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:13pm efd:

I know where you're coming from, though, I kind of dropped out for a few years myself.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:16pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Watching KJ on the Whats This For tour on crutches in a NUTTY mob is a good memory.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:24pm efd:

You on crutches, not them, I presume.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:25pm Holly in NC:

Hello efd, UM, Loretta, Ken & Barkevious!
The 2 dogs I'm with were just dancing & barking in the moonlight (& howling alone w emergency vehicles) ;-)

@efd, finally received your premium, but haven't yet had a chance to listen. Excited!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:25pm Mike East:

jesus, where have I been for the past 25 minutes?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:26pm Barkevious Shabazz:

No, they were fully ambulatory. I was not. Well out of control.

This is some fine Gore right here.

ok so I am about to be homeless and just want to know how to pick up FMU while nomadic as opposed to having a home....
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:39pm Pine:

Hah we used to sneak into the Irish Butlins, "Get the Guards!"
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:43pm Holly in NC:

@Kathy - if you can finagle a smart phone w unlimited data plan, you're all set! Credo works for me. But I'm peeved that wfmu app upgrade is for iphone only BECAUSE AS AN ANDROID USER I STILL CAN'T ACCESS STREAM ARCHIVES, SUCH AS, OH, SAY, UNCLE MICHAEL'S...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:43pm Mike East:

@Kathy - get an FM radio and head towards Jersey City.

Android update is coming, Holly!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:48pm Stevel:

Lloyd Cole is pretty tremendous. Lyrics worth hearing.

Lloyd Cole and the Commotions?
  Wed. 9/18/13 9:50pm john:

New Lloyd elpee is getting great reviews (and I'm a proud kickstarter backer), return to the sound of early '90s solo material, but I actually like Broken Record from a couple years ago better. Well worth checking out, as was the one before that, Antidepressant.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:51pm Holly in NC:

@efd - looking forward! Sorry to whine, I am truly constantly in a state of shock & awe re wfmu's awesome technology.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:52pm pacific standard simon:

Thank you, Evan, for the heads-up about your Richie Teeter memorial show -- I listened and enjoyed, particularly Andy Shernoff's comments.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:53pm Tome:

hi EFD ,, hi folks great tunes as always and a great crisp cool clear evening and a Full Moon !
  Wed. 9/18/13 9:57pm Kathy:

I have these romantic visions of living out of my car but the winter makes it SO less so. I just know that if I can listen to this station while down & stinky I will be just fine.... so ludite- ish, technology escapes me!! I will have no choice but to catch up!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 9:58pm efd:

Thanks PSS, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed that show.

Greetings Tome, Stevel, steve, Holly, Kathy (good luck to you!), Loretta, Mike, Michael, and Uncle Michael, Pine, Barkevious, Ken, anyone I missed, and any and all lurkers!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 10:01pm pacific standard simon:

This Sparks tune sounds very strange without a thundering band behind the Bros.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 10:01pm Danne D:

Hey there EFD, hey there everyone
  Wed. 9/18/13 10:02pm SeanG:

This show looks killer--gotta go stack some zzzzs but will check out the archives.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 10:02pm pacific standard simon:

The thing is, I can still hear the band in my head.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 10:06pm pacific standard simon:

If I go see them, I'm sure I'll rush home afterward and play all the records.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 10:08pm Chop Scott:

EFD! So glad you are a Sparks fan--Cheers!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 10:09pm Mike East:

A whole new level of whining will commence if the new android app fails to function on Kindle Fire HD, as the old one did.

Droids run on different devices. That makes app development & functionality a challenge.

Geez, Simon...those tickets are a little pricey.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:02pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Shopping Bag. Song of the century.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:04pm pacific standard simon:

I know -- crazy prices, huh? Good thing I was making as much as $3.35 an hour in those days!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:05pm Uncle Michael:

Think about it...concert tickets for two-hours' wages. And today?

Coding made me a WFMU supporter. You know how it is.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:24pm Uncle Michael:

Since I glommed onto a Give the Drummer Radio time slot, I've barely had time to tweak php for my blog. WFMU has ruined me as a coder. Then again...I was already pretty lame at it.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:24pm Uncle Michael:

White Hills always makes me think of Hawkwind.
  Wed. 9/18/13 11:25pm Carmichael:

Dude, you played Barrance Whitfield! But you know that.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...hidden tracks & tricks - very 90s ??...
...Sounds like 'Be Your Dog' in Space - must be - yes! White Hills...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:26pm Uncle Michael:

I have efd to blame for Free Fall, White Hills and maybe even for Endless Boogie.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:26pm steve:

If I had a radio show, I would take great delight in annoying the listeners with those Bob Calvert "poetry" tracks on the Hawkwind records.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:32pm Uncle Michael:

How about some "Uncle Ray" from Moody Blues records?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I have a benfactor to blame for taking me to a White Hills show in Amherst, MA that Thurston Moore put on w/ Tall Firs & Cave of Time & Awesome Color - that was *great*...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:34pm pacific standard simon:

Bet there's at least a 1 hour show in mashing up all the rock album "poetry". Jim Morrison alone....
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:35pm Uncle Michael:

I saw the Midge Ure Ultravox but not the John Foxx Ultravox.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...plus there's some Julian Cope connection w/ White Hills...sooo...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:36pm Uncle Michael:

Jim was already mashed.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:36pm pacific standard simon:

Sour mashed.

Same here, UM (re Ultravox).

I'm one of those "The Doors was a comedy act" people.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:39pm Uncle Michael:

efd, I saw Ultravox open for someone...XTC or the Buzzcocks...can't remember.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I'm one of those freakin' love The Doors people.
...Do I still have Ultravox's 1st album somewhere - or did I lose that along the way??...been thinking about it...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/13 11:41pm efd:

I saw them at Hurrah, a great small club in NYC in the late '70s and early '80s. I remember boldly asking Billy Currie if he was mad about how successful Gary Numan was getting.
