Listener comments!

  Tue. 12/9/08 11:07pm annabelle clark:

  Tue. 12/9/08 11:09pm Sybil:

Missed you last week. Although Todd did a great job.

I needed this song!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:11pm efd:

thanks Sybil, thanks Annabelle! I'm glad to be back (and grateful to Todd for the last-minute fill-in last week).
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:14pm annabelle clark:

like sybil said you were missed..i guess you didn't feel well last week,,,btw efd what was the worst gift that you ever got,,hmm???
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:19pm annabelle c.:

evan have you got any special holiday plans?
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:20pm efd:

Annabelle, in the words of Rosanne Rosannadanna: you ask a lot of questions!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:25pm Sybil:

I am in love with tonight's show. That is all.
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:25pm annabelle clark:

evan forgive me for being soo nosey,,,i'm sorry efd,, ohhhhhhh yaaaaaahhhhhh tee set
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:32pm Sybil:

Bullet wound???
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:39pm efd:

You'll have to listen to the very beginning of Todd's fill-in from last week.

p.s. I'm fine.
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:41pm C:

he really scared me for a second there. glad all's well!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:44pm hazeljane:

the music is GREAT
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:45pm annabelle c.:

evan i'm really glad that your ok this week,,,& i'm still sorry for being nosey,,,
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:47pm efd:

thanks Hazeljane, thanks Annabelle.

C, I can see how that would have caused some alarm... especially for people who either aren't in NY or don't follow football (or both)
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:50pm Sybil:

The bullet-football connection is known even to this complete football non-follower. (I try very hard not to know anything about football, but it's more difficult than you might think.)
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:50pm C:

Haha. No, it was actually the part where he said something like "don't blame Tom for joking about Evan's absence, he didn't know what happened." the guy really sold it.
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:52pm Sybil:

OK, now I've got to go listen to it. Well, not *now*, but later.

Will it only make sense if I also listen to the last few minutes of Tom's show? (I must have missed this - dang!)
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:57pm Pete:


Listener Pete here. Hope all is well with you. If possible, requesting that you play the song "Brown Eyes" by Gary Charlson off the Numero Titan records comp.

  Tue. 12/9/08 11:59pm annabelle/catlin:

well evan i'm outa here,,thank you for putting up with me,,,rest easy,,see u next week--g'nite =)=)=) peace & love
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:04am efd:

goodnight Annabelle!
Hello Pete! I am going to have to go in to the comments system and correct your misspelling of my name... but I do have that Titan comp here in the studio, so the odds of your request getting played are good. :)
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:07am efd:

Sybil, yes, ideally the whole thing works best if you hear the tail end of Tom's show first... C, yes, I see your point - Todd did a good job of sounding pretty grave (for a change!).
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:13am wendy:

what is the no. again? love the show
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:22am annabelle c.:

i'm sorry evan,but i was just wonderin would you consider me as one of your fave comenters?? i want to know,,,thank you
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:22am randy in NC:

efd, while you're at it with Brown Eyes, could I add Big Brown Eyes to the list? Or Amplifier?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:24am C:

i don't know if this means anything to you, but you're one of my favorite commenters, annabelle.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:27am efd:

and I agree with C.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:30am Laurie:

What did we do wrong? Did we do something to anger you, Evan, and that's why you're playing Ace Frehley?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:30am Laurie:

Was it because that one person spelled your name wrong or something?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:33am efd:

Laurie, if I were mad at you(se), I would have played Peter Criss.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:44am MARK:

Do you like Nitecaps' GO TO THE LINE?
Wounded Bird Records just reissued it. They also did Polyrock and Bonnie Hayes. Bonnie Hayes is cool, too.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:45am randy in NC:

efd, when you get a chance sometime, check out Tramp by the band Royal Purple. Joe B. played it today, man what a thing with a hook.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:48am efd:

Randy, I actually played that a few weeks ago! (Along with the original version by BTO!)

HI MARK! That's cool about the Nitecaps reissue, I'll have to keep an eye out.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:50am randy in NC:

Oh yes I remember that now. It's late...
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:51am efd:

no worries, Randy... I don't expect everyone to mentally catalog all my shows. :)
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:54am john:

Damn, that Eagles of Death Metal song was good...even if it was a piss-take...I may need to reappraise.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:54am Sybil:

Hearing this makes me feel unreasonably nostalgic.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:56am C:

did they really name this album "theme from growing pains"? is that the most sought after theme that's going to sell the album?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:57am efd:

well it certainly isn't the theme from "My Sister Sam."

although there is something Murphy Brown-related on there, you'd think that would be the hook.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:59am john:

Evan, play some Sexual Objects if WFMU has it...Merrie England is a great single...
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:00am Joe:

Hi, Evan, just stopping in because that last track destroyed what's left of my sanity. Greatest American Hero indeed.

Good show, carry on.
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:02am ?:

  Wed. 12/10/08 1:06am john:

RIP Wursthaus
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:06am C:

that great restaurant is gone, unfortunately
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:12am efd:

i figured as much... if Out Of Town news can't make it I don't have much hope for anything else in Harvard Square.
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:15am C:

that newstand in the middle of the square? how is that possible?
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:16am john:

that's closing...they sold in '94 to Hudson...and now Hudson's leaving...
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:18am efd:

John is correct, unfortunately. I think Nini's Corner is still there, at least?
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:18am john:

yessir it is
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:19am C:

yikes. next you're going to tell me that the weirdos have been moved out of the pit by the t stop
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:20am john:

they will never leave...like cockroaches, they'll be there after the bomb hits
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:23am randy in NC:

More hook
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:30am Laurie:

  Wed. 12/10/08 1:55am M Otis Beard:

Oh, this is fantastic. I'm lying in bed in a big rig at a truck stop in Salina, Kansas... and I'm listening to WFMU.
  Tue. 12/16/08 3:59pm Chris:

Thanks for playing Dogmatics - Gimme the Shakes! I love that song. I've always liked the 7" version better than the lp version.
