Why is that helicopter following us?

What they say is Harry blew his voice out trying to keep up w/ his pal Lennon.
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:06pm P-90:

Yo efd and Funkstars!
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:08pm jt:

I miss the sympathy label, I used to get a lot of albums from them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:16pm efd:

hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in and for the early comments rush!
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 9:16pm JakeGould:

Dale and Folsom need to comment about 4-5 times in a row. Just saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:16pm efd:

@jt, that was the LP version of "Jump Into The Fire"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:18pm efd:

@Jeff formerly from Rahway Glad to hear that! I saw he was coming to down but sadly the dates didn't line up for me to even attempt to get him out here for a session.

Hey ho, Funkasaurians! It's good to be here.
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:24pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I wouldn't mind seeing more cat avatars, Jake. Wondering what your avatar is. Maybe I need my glasses...
Apparently Lulu is playing at BB King's next week.

Good evening, all. Loved the Lulu interview with Todophonic Todd last Saturday. Her singing over the phone was very cool.
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:30pm grace gold way:

i like mountain dew and liberty party mix especially when i get it from the deli on hessex-- hester and essex st
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:31pm grace gold way:

jake, what's your favorite deli?
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:33pm Cait:

Lulu's the greatest. Simon Templar, also excellent. Not saying these are my finest observations ever. Also hi Evan. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:34pm steve:

did someone say cat avatars
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:36pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Oh, Steve. Tell me that's your real cat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:37pm efd:

hi Cait! Nice to see you here!
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:37pm jt:

Thanks efd, It sounded so different. Guess i never heard it over the air, on my kitchen speakers, eating a taco..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:38pm Bootsie:

Not liking the autotune. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:39pm steve:

no, but it a real life 4 eared cat
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:40pm efd:

I hear you, Bootsie, but I am willing to give Debbie Harry a whole lot of slack at this point. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:40pm chris_in_space:

I'm not huge on all the techniques... but yeah, it's Debbie Harry. Open door policy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:41pm Bootsie:

@Evan she IS a goddess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:42pm chris_in_space:

This Midnight Reruns, however, takes zero effort to love
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 9:42pm JakeGould:

@GraceGoldWay: My favorite deli? That’s kinda personal. But nowadays since tons of old school delis are gone, I would say “Little Poland” in the East Village or that mini-chain known as “Essen” that is like a Korean deli done right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:42pm efd:

  Wed. 5/24/17 9:46pm Steve:

EFD, can I ask you a music question ?
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:47pm grace gold way:

my polish friends in high school always had little shows at lil poland, ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 9:47pm efd:

I'm having deja vu, Steve, but go ahead. I think you asked me one a couple of weeks ago and I didn't respond but also didn't know the answer...?
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 9:50pm JakeGould:

The had shows in “Little Poland?” What kind?
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:50pm Steve:

Never mind I don't want to bother you
  Wed. 5/24/17 9:51pm grace gold way:

folky rocky polish american music

Good i got here in time for the "heavy" portion of the programme!

A worthy Godfathers cover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 10:06pm efd:

i've got news for you, Stevel: That was the original!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 10:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I don't know the pronunciation of ötzi, either, but I recognize that as the name given to the mummified body discovered in the Alps a few years back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 10:12pm efd:

damn Ken, you're good!
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:15pm Stevel:

Original? Schooled!

Electric Citizen is a great band name, especially lately.
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 10:15pm coelacanth∅:

that creation track was fucking brilliant!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 10:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Heh, I watched a PBS show about him.
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:16pm Ignore Function:

Wow, The Godfathers are back?
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 10:18pm coelacanth∅:

"Good Memory Ken" we call him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 10:23pm medson:

Frankie & the Witch Fingers are one of my fav bands : )
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:33pm Julie M Brooklyn:

This is a great Bee Gees song. And an interesting cover.
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 10:37pm JakeGould:

Otzi was one sweet fella. We all said, “That Otzi is going places!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 10:38pm chris_in_space:

Oh my damn–UFO. Killin' it tonight, @efd

Good evening friends!

ötzi went to the point of know return.
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:48pm Carmichael:

Heya Evan!
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:49pm el Garree~:

Hello EFD listeners:
ötzi: Sounds like a type of pasta... look but don't eat though... https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4e/De-Oetzi-pronunciation.ogg

needs more reverb
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 10:58pm Hoboken Jack:

Listen to what EFD says!
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:59pm Carmichael:

Is this the original album release? It sounds very clear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 11:02pm efd:

yup, direct from vinyl Carmichael!
hiya Jack!
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:03pm el Garree~:

needed more reverb but now more lennon
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:13pm el Garree~:

Just to set the record straight... Dion is a really nice person. Hey dj, set that record straight.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:18pm el Garree~:

Ya know, I think I like Geoff's version of "Brazil" more than Maria's stuff. A lot of history in that. And lot's of love for WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 11:20pm efd:

I don't think I said anything to suggest Dion wasn't a nice person, did I?
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

you didn't, Evan...Dion's music did that on it's own!
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:27pm el Garree~:

No, not a bit. He was the rock star of his brief time. I should have phrased it differently. Just a nice guy who I met. Point taken toward my personal deportment. Sorry, been watching to much "news" and rough around the edges.
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 11:28pm BEAVO:

This sounds a lot like The Verve.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:29pm Carmichael:

Needless to say, this stuff ROCKS!
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 11:30pm JakeGould:

@EFD: Maybe that Dion comment was a reference to me saying Otzi was a nice guy? I mean he was! And now he’s a great mummy!
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:32pm el Garree~:

Huh? So did Dion die too? Say it ain't so...
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

yes it did have some verve to it.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:34pm el Garree~:

ötzi was a person of his time. so was/is dion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 11:35pm efd:

Dion is not dead! Just making a connection between those two songs is all.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:36pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi everyone. Been lurking tonight. Great show, Evan. Thumbs up especially for playing Splodge and the Teardrops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 11:37pm efd:

Eddy! There's a new compilation here at the station that has an Anne Cessna track on it!
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:38pm Carmichael:

Dion is 77 years young.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:41pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: Whoa, that was quick! Sounds like "Closed Circuits," which I mentioned on your show.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:42pm Eddy in Australia:

Anyone else hear a little Yazoo in this Garrasco's track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 11:42pm efd:

this is something different - it's called 'Subnormal Girls' (Vol 2) - international lineup of bands with female singers. There's another Australian band called Microfilm on it.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:43pm el Garree~:

Dion LIVES! But still a nice guy. So do you have a tight playlist or "ride on the vibe" as we used to say in the 80's? OK I just made that up. Do tell...
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

yazoo or yaz?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/24/17 11:43pm efd:

I live song-to-song.

If that.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:45pm Dan from Toronto:

Sounds great from up here, Evan

EFD: DJ is the Silver Song Surfer...
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:48pm Carmichael:

Bay area rockrs!
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:48pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: Aah, that one. Microfilm was Lisa Gerrard's (Dead Can Dance) first band.
@Coelacantha: Only Yaz in America, (original name) Yazoo everywhere else.
