I liked the Disco stuff too but.. like George Clinton once said when Disco came about,,, "it's kinda like making love with one stroke " ....
Avatar Wed. 8/20/14 9:16pm Holly in NC:

Yes, I am assuming efd's choices may be somewhat influenced by ongoing events in Ferguson. Though you know what they say about assuming.... anyway hi RRN63, Fuzzy, Danne, Steve1, PKNY, Tome.

Thanks johnk.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:04pm Kat in Chicago:

Evan, I can relate a bit to your situation on Wednesday a bit. I had a previously booked guest this past Monday who I adore but whose music wasn't the best fit with the mood of things outside the studio. I'm on FB and Twitter during my show and had to force myself to stay off my news feeds as much as possible. Kudos on your opening set tonight, impeccable selection.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:04pm Eddy in Australia:

Bart Davenport or Roddy Frame?!
Avatar Wed. 8/20/14 10:06pm 1010w:

Aw shit what's up EFD. LA checkin in.

Ugh, flashbacks to when we'd have a substitute teacher who could not seem to ever pronounce Daniel as a male name. Always a sure bet to have the classroom erupt in laughter.

a big YAY for new Daniele Baldelli
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:16pm Kat in Chicago:

I grew up in Georgia in the 70s. Hate on "southern rock" all you want.
I wonder if Ace Frehley is aware of the "Ace Calling" Facebook page :)
Avatar Wed. 8/20/14 10:16pm Holly in NC:

Hello UM!

Spider Bags s/b a great show. Might have to listen to Nate live rather than archive. Although need Nate's archives for dog walking purposes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:17pm efd:

@Kat, thanks for sharing that... it can be tough to negotiate the real and radio worlds.

Glad (some of) you enjoyed my new Southern character.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:17pm Uncle Michael:

I'd like to ask Ace how "New York Groove" came to his attention.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:18pm efd:

I was wondering that too, UM. I have to assume that will be covered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:19pm Uncle Michael:

I'd also like to know how satisfying it was for his to be the only of the four solo albums to spawn a hit.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:21pm ?:

ohh who the hell am I kidding evan, I just can't leave you in the dark, i'm here to stay. ignore my last two comments, I also loved your southern accent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:24pm efd:

Seems like it would be somewhat of a hollow victory (if it was a victory at all) since it wasn't even his own song. Still felt good though, I bet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:26pm Uncle Michael:

I guess it depends how early on it was understood that it would be the single. You release a single...it's a hit...a win.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:26pm Albert Pujols:

  Wed. 8/20/14 10:27pm ?:

yeah,,don't stop the disco, evan!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

Albert, why is your head so much larger than when you were a rookie?
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:36pm Carmichael:

Heya Evan and funksters. Just pulled up to the curb.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:37pm ?:

let's hope that efd plays more disco tonight.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:44pm P-90:

I'm just guessing, but it might have been a great deal more than a "hollow victory" that they all did solo records at that point and Ace had the big hit. I remember when those albums came out, the radio very quickly decided that was the only song that was gonna get much play. I bet Ace's personal management def felt "one up" over the others'. I wonder if it really made much difference within the band that he didn't write it?
Sure thing that it's one of the things he's asked about most often, so he'll have a story about that at the ready.
  Wed. 8/20/14 10:52pm ?:

as you could see efd, i'm all wound up with disco, or is it the three diet cokes I drank earlier?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 11:06pm Stevel:

Always amazed that the "ticket" is always live. THAT's commitment!!
  Wed. 8/20/14 11:09pm ?:

I got to hand it to you evan, you always have the greatest shows each week!

Apache Dropout! Amazingly, Indiana!

Need them to steer through the northern part of the state more often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 11:15pm efd:

I think "Amazingly, Indiana" should be the state slogan. I'd love to see that on license plates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 11:16pm Stevel:

I miss the old 80s standby "Wander." No one really knew what it meant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/20/14 11:18pm efd:

ha, that could definitely be taken a few different ways!
