Listener comments!

  Mon. 4/28/08 11:06pm Joe:

Evan, I have the nastiest flu of my life, and I blame your fucking Bosox. Varitek was patient zero.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:11pm efd:

yikes! sorry to hear that, Joe.
it's funny, i was away most of last week and out of touch with the baseball world, i didn't even know Varitek missed all those games until after I got back.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:16pm E.L.:

I'll look forward to catching that right around my birthday I'm sure.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:16pm toni daytona:

  Mon. 4/28/08 11:24pm Jessica:

We're missing Repo Man on the big screen, and you make[ed.] missin' fun.

(I never did get to see what you had in that bright yellow bag.)
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:24pm efd:

E.L., when's your birthday? Oh, and to answer the question you asked in your email: Armageddon.
(note to other listeners: he asked what the first word in that mediocre Def Leppard song was.)
whut up, Toni D?? you think LuAnn and Gunther are gonna hook up??
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:25pm efd:

this is not a yellow bag selection, but the opening song was!
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:26pm dave:

i've said it before, i'll say it again:

there's all of human history, and then there's trailmix's "you make lovin' fun". future generations will devote the better part of their intellectual effort to the comprehension of just how this remix came to be, and we will be a better species for it.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:28pm Scott:

I'm with Dave. This Trailmix mix - just bliss...
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:28pm efd:

Duran Duran!
(see my comment next to this song in the playlist)

  Mon. 4/28/08 11:30pm E.L.:

May 12th — A Monday! I'm going to the Patton Oswalt show that night but I'm sure I'll be home in time for your show.

Armageddon it! That's the one.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:30pm Droll:

Dave, the people of the future will consider the remix and decide the original song was better than a looped version sauced with a (fake) Moog drenched in reverb. Surely you want the future to remember the gorgeous vocal harmonies and faux bell tones at the end!

  Mon. 4/28/08 11:40pm E.L.:

Providence act: Mahi Mahi.

I think they've made it on to an WFMU playlist at some point.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:40pm dave:

does big A little a count?
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:44pm Joe:

This band is far too burly for anything involving a keytar.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:46pm Droll:

David & David, Dee Dee King, LL Cool J, ZZ Top... must... stop... now... must.. stop...
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:52pm Sybil:

I tried to warn you, Droll...
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:55pm E.L.:

"And then one day a black bug, who was related to nobody, arrived in the neighborhood."
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:58pm Droll:

Sybil, I know, but every time I stop and go back to my drooling, there's GG Allen, or Lisa Lisa, or... I'm gonna get another beer bottle and see if there's more band names in it.
  Mon. 4/28/08 11:58pm Jessica:

Rematch on your coast! Soonish, maybe!
(Fingers crossed that the thing I was all hopped up about, er... something something tomorrow morning mustn't jinx it kthxbai.)
  Tue. 4/29/08 12:02am Mike B.:

whoa! I almost missed the Midnite Ticket Oasis intro. fmu plays all the wrong notes right. BUDOS!
  Tue. 4/29/08 12:10am Sybil:

I really liked the Chin Chin piece, went to their myspace page and liked even more. Good stuff!

(Yes, I was listening to songs on their myspace page with one ear and the radio with the other, and it was ever bit as much fun as it sounds. :->)
  Tue. 4/29/08 12:21am Jessica:

Is it just me, or did that PWEI song have a whiff of Unskinny Bop to it?
  Tue. 4/29/08 12:26am Rambozo The Clown:

Yes I think PWEI is sampling from Brett & the boys....
  Tue. 4/29/08 12:34am Jessica:

Bum kon. Suicidal in Denver! Wow.
  Tue. 4/29/08 1:28am Amanda:

Yeah, yeah it offends me.

I know this is coming in late, but: So relieved that we'll hear more "in" sound! That stuff is gold. I wonder if I should hone my Evan Funk Davies impression.
  Tue. 4/29/08 1:28am bureaucrat:

Listening from Sacramento. Thanks for spinning some local rock courtesy of the Mayyors!
  Tue. 4/29/08 1:36am efd:

thanks for the Sacto shout-out, bureaucrat!

Amanda, I can assure you you are not alone in your love of The "In" Sound! I'm totally psyched I was able to track down another one of those LPs.
  Tue. 4/29/08 1:59am efd:

thanks for listening and commenting, everyone! remember to tune in this Thursday night for Mayday Mayhem when I fill in for Dave the Spazz!
  Tue. 4/29/08 2:00am COBRA:

EVAN - rockin it baby - rock it
  Tue. 4/29/08 11:24am Jimmy Dial!:

According to an interview Glen Jones did with Mike Peters, Mike sent John Peel his band's 1st demo called Alarm Alarm. Mr. Peel wrote back and said no good, you should call yourselves The Alarm. The rest of course is RocknRoll history!
