Hi ehd. Nice to meet you and be part of the marathon. I spelled your acronym with an 'h' because you use the word 'hence' more than anyone I know. JakeGould, my man!

i'm going to make one of my all-time favorite segues at the end of this Pete Shelley song. You might have heard it before but you're going to hear it again.

Welcome back Mr. Funk! Wonderful work during the marathon. Your show drew me in to become an fmu fanatic and I am now your proud, uh, adopter O_o

The post-marathon shows are always so wonderful.
  Wed. 3/22/17 9:41pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I don't know why, but that "Burgers and Chips" song reminds me somehow of the Jonathan Richman song "Double Chocolate Malted." Anybody know it?
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 9:44pm Andal:

Burgers and Chips was... the same chord progression as "Money."
  Wed. 3/22/17 9:44pm Bluesman:

I'm seeing a little "spring/summer" theme brewing here! Burgers, Pacifics (swimming), First Base (Baseball!!!). Down with that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/22/17 9:48pm efd:

unintentional, Bluesman, but I'm glad it's working for you!
btw I saw you at the Feelies in-store a couple weeks ago but wasn't able to make it over to say hi, so hi!
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 9:50pm Switchblade Batman:

I'm hearing it too @Bluesman and @EFD. I can't freaking wait for it.

Also looking forward to the 180 minutes of non-stop talk edition of the show - because I trust efd to make even that rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/22/17 9:57pm chad from oregon:

I would totally listen to the first seven minutes of that show.
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 10:03pm Andal:

@chad, I listened to fmu more than ever during the marathon because of all the talk between songs...because I am an auditory weirdo.

Pardon me, has anyone seen my drummer?

@Andal & chad: I find myself leaning closer to the speaker whenever anyone talks on WFMU.

Someday I'm going to segue from this song to the Call's "The Walls Came Down". Oh, yes I am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/22/17 10:12pm chad from oregon:

I too enjoy the talk - especially when there are unexpected combinations of hosts. It reminds me of being a kid and reading a Marvel Team-Up comic. "Next month: Spider-EFD teams up with Jim The Poet! Excelsior!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/22/17 10:12pm efd:

I won't stand in your way.
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 10:12pm Andal:

@UncleMichael, that is cute. I have grown very attached to particular voices through the marathon
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/22/17 10:13pm Scraps:

i always think of Garth Hudson in the video to that Call song
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/22/17 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

Surfer Blood is so good.

Cute?
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 10:14pm Switchblade Batman:

It totally is like that @Chad. I still say that Dave Hill and Jo Firestone should get perma show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/22/17 10:14pm Uncle Michael:

I didn't know Bill Mac at all and we had a lot of fun together...even though my wife thinks I was very mean to him.
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 10:15pm Switchblade Batman:

I didn't realize Surfer Blood released a new one. Nice one.

G'night everyone. I'm finally going to sleep early to catch up after marathon...three days on.

Sleeping faster miles an hour...with the radio on...

Great to see you, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/22/17 10:38pm JakeGould:

So, since I caught it, any headcount on how many people who were there during the marathon caught the “2017 Marathon Head/Chest Cold?” Asking for a friend.

I want to say the first Driver 67 release in 38 years. Can't help you with the date of the Tommy Roe.

Thanks! Good to know @efd. Couldn't tell if it was contemporary well done vintage appreciation or from a while back...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/22/17 11:06pm efd:

oh, definitely contemporary!
Avatar Wed. 3/22/17 11:09pm Andal:

It strongly reminded me of Radiohead's In Rainbows. So I wondered if they were drawing on a similar influence from the past. Probably yes but I am ignorant of what exactly it is :)

Not that intense, more like Morricone-kissed Rock 'n Roll according to one wag.

  Wed. 3/22/17 11:26pm john:

Whole album is fantastic. And some jagoffs jumped all over me on FB when I dared suggest that Sprout's songs were usually my favorite on GBV albums. Because they're delicate flowers.
