Listener comments!

  Mon. 5/26/08 11:09pm Laurie:

I've been mispronouncing "badminton" my entire life. Oh dear, I thought the sport was called badmitten! How embarrassing.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:11pm Sybil:

Spooky tooth, wow.

Oh, the Red Sox are ahead 1-0 after 5 innings. (Papi HR)
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:12pm Wendy du Fromage:

It is pronounced "badmitten" if, like me, you are from NJ.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:14pm Sybil:

We always said "badmitten" too. NOT from NJ. I think that's pretty common. (Note play on words. ;-))
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:17pm efd:

i bet there are ppl from NJ who pronounce it "badmi-- en."
thanks for the Sox update, Sybil!
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:23pm Wendy du Fromage:

efd, you are absolutely right about the pronunciation. I was in VT too long and almost lost my NJ accent. For shame!
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:25pm bfc:

Its also known as Shuttles and Cocks.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:25pm Laurie:

I'm from Miami, and we totes pronounce it "badmitten."
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:29pm Sybil:

Oh, no. Now 1-1.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:29pm bfc:

Isn't G-Wright from Cresskill, NJ?
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:30pm john:

the badmi---en pronunciation is also what you'd hear just north of here in Central Conne--icu--. Yeesh.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:34pm efd:

bfc, is he? I hadn't heard that before.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:34pm bfc:

I'm pretty sure he is.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:36pm Amanda:

Heh! If I remember correctly, I entered my pledge when you were giving away a Long Blondes CD. Didn't win the drawing, but I'm glad I get "Badminton" anyway. (To continue the thread that will have us discussing the same song for this entire show.)

The title of that Upper Crust album makes me laugh.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:37pm bfc:

Well, at least he was born there, according to Rolling Stn R&R Encyclopedia.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:38pm efd:

that's good enough for me!
Jersey Pride!
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:41pm cissy davis/toni d.:

hiya efd---how was your weekend??? i wanna hear more LONG BLONDES i think they're a groooovy group!!!!!!!! LUV YA EVAN!!!!!!!=)=)=)
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:45pm efd:

cissy davis? that's a new one.
  Mon. 5/26/08 11:59pm Sybil:

2-1 Sox, Lugo scores on a double by Pedroia.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:01am Sybil:

Intentional walk to Papi [!] then Manny drives in another run. 3-1.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:01am Pete:


Thanks for playing a song from the Dimona comp. Glad you like it. Right now, for me, its a tie between the Ardent Records comp and this one for 2008

Now you have to play the Ting Tings next!

  Tue. 5/27/08 12:01am efd:

who's pitching for the Sox, Daisuke? I lost track of the rotation over the weekend
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:03am Sybil:

Colon is pitching, or was anyway. Doing a pretty good job.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:04am Sybil:

Lowell drives in another run.

This is fun.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:06am efd:

Pete, if the TIng Tings CD were in the new bin I'd play it!

hmm, maybe that's why it's not in the new bin.

Sybil, the one good thing about not doing my show last week was that I got to see the last few innings of Lester's no-hitter!
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:09am Sybil:

Tek just drew a walk with the bases loaded, so there goes another run. Now 5-1, and all this scoring has happened with 2 outs (and Lugo started it!!!)

I'm glad you got to see some of that no-hitter, efd. It was awesome.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:30am E.L.:

What's this xyx? I feel like somebody got on Bonde Do Role's bad side. I like it.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:34am E.L.:

Thanks, big guy.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:40am E.L.:

EFD, please open your next show with: "And a happy how d'you do to you." —if I'm quoting that correctly.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:40am Sybil:

Papelbon's struggling. Now 5-2.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:41am Sybil:

Make that 5-3.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:43am Amanda:

I am with E.L. on the opening. But I also advocate for plenty of pro-army propaganda.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:43am Sybil:

That's it. Red Sox win, 5-3.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:45am efd:


Amanda/E.L., I'll try to remember that!
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:45am Sybil:

The "in" sound, hmmmmm?

I third the suggestion for opening!
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:45am Droll:

Holy crap! Now *THAT* is a DJ! Get right up on the mic, cup your ear, read a PSA with an uplift, play a hit, don't talk over the song, back announce, play a cart interviewing the artist, reiterate the sponsor quote with gusto... That guy's pro.
Not that you're a slouch, EFD -- fine show.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:46am Laurie:

Ha! I love this song title.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:46am efd:

i bet Harry Harrison wouldn't have forgotten his April Wine CD like i did...
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:49am efd:

who here saw "Mr Lonely?"
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:52am Droll:

I don't think Harry has the "skillz" to play the Beatles/Stones/Wine mashup which is that song.
Incidentally, I always thought mechanical reverb on the DJ's voice made him sound lonely and isolated. That always creeped me out when DJ's did that back in the day.
  Tue. 5/27/08 12:52am Sybil:

Honestly, every time you say you're going to play Harry Harrison I think of the Stainless Steel Rat.

Didn't see "Mr. Lonely," in fact. But it looks interesting.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:00am Amanda:

They were missing the Lords of Brooklyn bed music, I guess, those lonely old-days DJs.

My Steve Perry fan fiction ALWAYS gets approved. I don't know 'bout you guys.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:01am efd:

Sybil, I guess "Harry Harrison fan fiction" would have you even more confused...
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:06am skunkhammer:

Isn't Steve Perry the lead singer for Rush, or was that ozzy ozborn?
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:15am matt:

my favorite abba song is 'rock n roll band' which was the b side to 'ring ring'. it predates the 'abba' name.
great show. listening from japan.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:17am efd:

thanks Matt! I'll have to look for that Abba song, I don't know it.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:17am otto:

no, I think Steve Perry was the lead for motorhead
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:28am Droll:

"Steve Perry" is anagram for "Pervert? Yes!". I think that explains who was in which band.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:35am otto:

It's all clear to me now
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:36am Randy in NC:

joining late, my daughter went to "I dunno, some website" that downloaded a trojan horse onto my computer. It took me 4 hours to figure out how to get it off... Looks like it's been a good show here as usual
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:38am efd:

yikes, glad you could make it Randy!
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:40am Randy in NC:

I saw Mrs Mitch Easter's band last weekend and didn't realize who it was, Mitch Easter on gtr and Don Dixon on bass. They sounded great of course.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:41am skunkhammer:

The anti Beasty boys God has spoken
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:46am Randy in NC:

Was it the Beastie Boys who did "Cookie Puss", a heavy rotation hit on FMU many years ago?
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:52am efd:

yep, that was them.

cool story about seeing Shalini!
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:53am Randy in NC:

They were playing for free in a park in Raleigh
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:57am Amanda:

"Cookie O'Puss, then... or Cookie Chick... anybody, I wanna speak to them!"

I had shelved that CD, "Some Old Bullshit," for years after listening to it way too much, but I actually just began listening to it again last week. Funny you should mention, Randy.
  Tue. 5/27/08 1:59am Randy in NC:

It's so goofy... Perfect FMU material...
  Tue. 5/27/08 2:00am Randy in NC:

efd, don't forget to turn the reverb off
  Tue. 5/27/08 2:02am Sybil:

See you in 2 weeks minus 3 hours!
  Tue. 5/27/08 2:02am Amanda:

It's going to stay on aaaaaall night...
  Tue. 5/27/08 2:07am efd:
