Hi EFD and Funksters. This is quite an opening set!

thanks! (I think?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:22pm Kat in Chicago:

Definitely into it. I've been tuning in later in the shows, but I started with the seventies tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:24pm efd:

nice! The opening set is definitely the stretch-out set.

Hey Evan, great show as always, what's the name of that funky tune you always play on the breaks?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:47pm efd:

thanks Frank! It's "Saturday Night Fever" by the Lordz of Brooklyn, which includes a sample from "American Woman."
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:49pm Julie M:

Hi Evan, listening remote from VT this week. I caught last week's show too late, but I saw what you did there with one song in particular (if you remember). I'm really liking the comfort of your show tonight.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 9:50pm Frank77:

Thanks Evan, such groovy tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:50pm efd:

ahahaha, I was a little surprised that didn't prompt a comment from you at the time! Enjoy Vermont!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:52pm Julie M:

Thanks, efd, sometimes it's about the little musical nods.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 9:53pm Kat in Chicago:

Oh this Sir Babygirl song is so good.

Bonsoir, Phillippe

Hey Evan, love your show.. But, the "German" Monks were Americans .. And, for my money, they were the "Punky" Monks ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 10:52pm Phillippe Bastille:

EFD: Gimme cab fare and i'm on it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 10:54pm efd:

@terrapin true, but they were based in Germany at the time so that's what I was thinking of. And if you haven't heard the '70s Monks with the Strawbs connection check them out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 10:57pm Phillippe Bastille:

Comment vas-tu, Kat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 11:02pm Kat in Chicago:

Ça va bien! (and that's about the extent of my French, haha)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 11:03pm Phillippe Bastille:

Most of mine is Google translate lol. Had my last French class 45 years ago.

I've been doing a few morning minutes of Duolingo daily since my last visit to Montreal, in hopes I'll be slightly less lost next time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 11:09pm Phillippe Bastille:

Haven't been to Montreal, but what worked well for me when my wife and I went to France, if there was a dual option on languages, we always did both. Got the English menu and French menu and ordered off the French one, for example. You make a little effort and it goes a long way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 11:12pm Kat in Chicago:

People in Montreal generally switch to English with no problem, but the more French I can at least recognize, the better.

Good evening Evan and everyone.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 11:18pm herb.nyc:

Cute- Evan said the Pristeens were a "late 90s, early 80s band." Wha? That they "played brownies and elsewhere". Uh, elsewhere wasn't around then.

Let the record show that Mr. London is referring to that Bret Sommer song, and indeed it is.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 11:38pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm gonna assume Modern Nature's "Supernature" isn't a Cerrone cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 11:38pm efd:

ha, no it is not!
