hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in tonight- glad you're enjoying the early '80s, but don't get too used to it...

Greetings @efd and fellow Funkosapiens! It's really good to be here on another Wednesday night.
  Wed. 3/29/17 9:18pm andrewb:

for bad or good the cars might be the quintessential american new wave band.
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 9:19pm chris_in_space:

@efd I guess with the CanCon requirement already met, there's no chance of hearing some Headpins tonight, eh?
  Wed. 3/29/17 9:21pm Andal:

Really enjoying the show so far, but I won't get too comfortable ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 9:21pm efd:

@chris_in_space I'm gonna say that the chance of hearing some Headpins is unchanged.

@efd ok then!

I used to HATE "I'm Free" when it first came out. But I ended up having this nostalgia for it.

What about KanCon, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 9:41pm efd:

@Bootsie, chances of hearing "The Bedazzler" are HIGH.

You are a gentleman, efd. I wish I could stay up later than I do, and I don't know how you do it.

Fear of dead air. That's how I do it. Most other nights I'm in bed by 10 or 10:30!

I love Eyelids too, and with the GbV connection, and a new record out by said band... just sayin'
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 10:03pm Cooh John:

@chris_in_space: what is the Eyelids/GBV connection? I plan on seeing Ron & company next month.
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 10:05pm Cooh John:

Sorry about my typing, chris_in_space. I meant Rob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 10:08pm efd:

@scraps, if you're still out there, I think the next song will be of particular interest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 10:09pm efd:

@Cooh John, Chris from Eyelids was in a later GBV lineup and also played with Pollard in Boston Spaceships.
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 10:10pm chris_in_space:

@Cooh John: Connection is with two members of eyelids–John Moen was in Boston Spaceships, a wicked Pollard-fronted band, and Chris Slusarenko was in GbV for a couple years near the end of the 2004 version.

@Bootsie, funny you should mention WLIR as I'll explain presently.

Thank you, yes!

OK, I'm listening...
  Wed. 3/29/17 10:20pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Yes, Bootsie, there's nothing like being there when it's goin' on, but it's good to have the archives.
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 10:23pm manchester lad:

that puppets song, the lyrics feel like theyre a quote from a wwll documentary, i see some old lady staring into the distance as she talks about being a little girl in france in the early 40's. Nadam' sayin?

OH, yeah, I'm.looking forward to seeing that doc! They have a Facebook page for it.

  Wed. 3/29/17 10:30pm Eric Hat:

Not to be too picky, but that Fancey track you played was actually called 'Baby Sunshine'...I believe.
  Wed. 3/29/17 10:30pm herb.nyc:

WLIR? Docu? I wish I still had my tee, gotten when they used my song segué idea. Didn't ex wnyu dj Hugh Foley work there for awhile?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 10:31pm efd:

oh whoops! Thanks Eric, you're probably right - the LP doesn't have track numbers and I either miscounted or the titles aren't in sequence. Thanks!
  Wed. 3/29/17 10:35pm Marc15:

I listened to the WDRE Version of WLIR in the late 1980s-Early 1990s
  Wed. 3/29/17 10:35pm Marc15:

I still have my WDRE bumper sticker
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 10:39pm efd:

thanks for the movie link, @Bootsie.

@Herb, there were a few ex-WNYUers at WLIR over the years, don't recall if Hugh was one of them.

If it pleases the Social Media Airhorn, the Seven Second Delay Snapchat video is available at "sevensecdelay". My daughter showed it to me, since I don't have an account.

I still don't get the point of snapchat, why make a video that's going to fade away?

respect!
  Wed. 3/29/17 10:53pm JakeGould:

Someone connected to WLIR lived in Manhattan Brach in Brooklyn in the early 1980s.

I lived nearby (in junky Brighton Beach) and me and friends would ride past this house that always seemed to have a WLIR van parked in the driveway.

That’s all past saying the obvious: WLIR blew my JHS kid’s mind. Shout out to DJ Donna Donna!
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 10:54pm Switchblade Batman:

Oh that's so cool @jake, I'm from near there originally
  Wed. 3/29/17 11:06pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Good night, Evan. Good show. It's not just about The Bedazzler, not by any means! Among many other nice things to listen to, I like The Fallen Leaves, and I know you've played them often, but tonight that stood out for me. And I guess I'm going out on a high note with a Sundazed cut. Bye all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 11:07pm efd:

goodnight Julie, thanks for listening!
Avatar Wed. 3/29/17 11:27pm Aharon:

Glad I got my Lambchop concert attending taken care of in the 90s so I can focus on tomorrow night's draft, for which I have not yet prepared! Is A-Rod still playing?
