Listener comments!

  Tue. 1/6/09 11:06pm Amanda:

I waited for this song for three weeks, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. (If it is, indeed, the AC/DC soundalike you referred to three weeks ago.)
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:07pm mike in SF:

I'd completely forgotten about this band and this song. What a weird flashback. They used to play it on the radio in Phoenix.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:09pm efd:

Amanda, you are correct!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:09pm fred from queens:

  Tue. 1/6/09 11:10pm john:

And I'm getting a bit of a feel of early 70s Alice Cooper Group (the real one) here...
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:12pm fred from queens:

  Tue. 1/6/09 11:13pm Joe:

I said it last time, I'll say it this time.

  Tue. 1/6/09 11:16pm Sybil:

Oh Joe, you do have a way with words.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:16pm Joe:

They are also playing Rehab (formerly Club Midway) next saturday and I am going there. Presumably to say that a few more times.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:16pm fred from queens:

I feel some Imperial Drag coming on..............
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:16pm efd:

Joe, I will see you there!!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:17pm superduper!:

You got a comment from Fred From Queens in the Limo!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:18pm Joe:

Awesome! I look almost exactly as you imagine me.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:19pm efd:

little-known fact: the singer from Coney Hatch went to the Joe Lynn Turner Vocal School.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:22pm john:

She's got a seven year itch
She's a genuine bitch
Like a one eyed jack
Stick a knife in your back

That's f'in poetry, maaaan. Wordsworth, I think. Or was it Coleridge? I can never tell the Lyrical Ballads apart.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:22pm Amanda:

Awwwwright Absorb the Lip Gloss!!!!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:22pm The Intl:

don't forget ron ashton tonite.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:23pm fred from queens:

no limo actually, just my dark apartment, some cats, a needle and some damage done
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:24pm Taylor:

As Peter Gabriel had "Passion Sources", the first set of this show could be deemed "Spinal Tap Sources"
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:25pm mb:

I've been hooked on this "Lip Gloss" since Psue broke it. Go Lil Mama. I just discovered Marnie the other day too. Its all coming together.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:26pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Bring on the Imperial Drag!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:27pm Sybil:

Wonderful film with a wonderful soundtrack.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:29pm Sybil:

Oh, my. Classy transition!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:29pm Amanda:

John, I think Coney Hatch's lyricist was Lord Byron, actually. And congrats for the most highbrow playlist comment I've ever seen.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:30pm joe:

very cool marnie stern. who mixed that one?
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:32pm Spoony:

In all seriousness, I was talking about "Lip Gloss" in an extended conversation at work today. No joke. GET OUT OF MY HEAD, DAVIS.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:33pm john:

Amanda, incongruity is my life. I just knew it wasn't Keats.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:34pm Taylor:

Got Benji Hughes "Neighbor Down the Hall"? I may never need another disc beyond his "A Love Extreme". Seriously.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:41pm The Intl:

Wrong track, pal. I don't care if he's on bass here or not, 1st & 2nd lp only! Have some respect!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:46pm efd:

Taylor, not familiar with Benji Hughes.

The Intl, sorry my selection did not conform with your narrow definition of Ron Asheton's career. You're probably not enjoying New Race either.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:57pm john:

Awesome version, too.
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:58pm efd:

it's self-censored!
  Tue. 1/6/09 11:59pm john:

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure she must have read Donald Hall's book Dock Ellis In The Country Of Baseball. The bit about hitting all those Reds in a row was straight out of the book. Highly recommended.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:04am Joe:

I haven't heard any awful puns, yet. Though the song is kinda diva-esque. I dunno if that's Vilanche or Kitt, though.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:06am E.L.:

Eat your heart out Rosemary Clooney.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:06am efd:

boy am I glad she said "yacht."
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:07am Sybil:

No one could purr like Eartha.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:08am john:

For what it's worth, Sybil, my cat just glared.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:12am E.L.:

I think the most popular feature of the show is Evan inserting "ticket" into the mix.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:14am Sybil:

E.L., we wait with baited breath each time.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:14am Sybil:

I think I meant to say "bated breath".
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:16am john:

So you're not suggesting anyone had been eating worms?
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:18am Sybil:

I may have been thinking of the cat who ate cheese and sat by the mousehole with... wait for it...
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:18am Joe:

heh... bated.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:20am efd:

"bated" is indeed the correct spelling for that usage.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:22am efd:

ohhhh, that reminds me of the horrible Dunkin' Donuts campaign.

I am just going to recycle all my Facebook and Twitter material. Apologies in advance to those of you who've seen it already.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:22am Amanda:

Your breath is bated, because you are BEING baited.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:25am E.L.:

That's okay, Sybil. I definitely wrote "Santa Clause" a few weeks back.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:26am Pete:


Tings Tings? Hey Mr. Guilty Pleasure. It took you awhile to give in but give in you did!
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:27am Joe:

Hmm I thought the Ting Tings sucked but this song is good.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:27am efd:

Hi Pete! That's because it never showed up in the new bin! I finally bought it when I went shopping last week,.
  Wed. 1/7/09 12:28am efd:

Joe, that is the power of the Evan "Funk" Davies show right there.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:00am Joe:

Serious radio talk show host? Doesn't sound like much fun.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:03am efd:

hardy har, Joe Vilanch.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:14am E.L.:

I was just about to turn in when the Nightingales came on. DA-A-A-A-V-I-I-I-IES!!
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:23am Joe:

I might be outing myself as a rube, but that very much reminds me of the immortal Rob Schnieder/Adam Sandler line.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:24am Jessica:

omg, it's Tuesday! I almost missed it!
This sounds like the Coachwhips, on a really really really sunshiney balmy afternoon. Tasty.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:27am C:

I hope that Dunking Donuts thing doesn't start a trend (I'm spelling it with the "g" now out of spite). I'm already kind of disturbed by JetBlue's attempts to get me to replace the verb "fly" with "jet", but only when I refer to flying on JetBlue (or should I say Jet Blue...there).
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:29am Jessica:

[scanning the comments] OK, now I can only just barely wait to listen to this from the top.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:30am Jessica:

That dogmatics song makes me really look forward to being single, again.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:31am Sybil:

I am pleased to say that until I just consulted Google, I had no idea what you all were on about, talking about Dunkin Donuts.

I've finally succeeded in isolating myself completely from all advertisements!
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:31am Joe:

I use "jet" as a verb, but only as a synonym for "bounce"
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:34am efd:

Sybil, nice work!

Hi Jessica, hi C!

Joe, I may be outing myself as a non-rube, but... what's the line?
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:34am Sybil:

Joe, how?
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:40am john:

Darn it, i think I dozed off and missed the Nerves. Not like I don't have the CD or anything, but it's somehow different this way.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:41am efd:

dozing off during my show? The nerve!
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:42am Joe:

I take that back, "jet" is "bounce" but with implied urgency. Though one can "bounce" urgently. Example: (Sybil has just left a party)

Partygoer to other partygoer:
"Oh, Sybil? I think she bounced."

Partygoer to other partygoer:
"Sybil? Her ex showed up and she -jetted-"

The line is from the Waterboy, when Rob Schnieder, dressed as a crazy cajun swampman, screaming "YOU CAN DO EET" at Adam Sandler, who plays a mildly retarded football player. It's like my generation's Caddyshack.

Just kidding. That would be terrible.

Terrible like a Nerve/Nerves pun.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:44am johnk77:

first time poster
was that bruce vilanch earlier?
paul collin's beat was at some point managed by
the late bill graham
part of the reason
the english beat became
and then paul collin's band became
american beat
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:51am efd:

hi John, thanks for the info. Bruce Vilanch co-wrote the Eartha Kitt song I played, he wasn't actually singing.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:58am Joe:

this is a pretty good song, but i'm not sure its a pretty good Damned song.

great show tonite
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:59am Sybil:

It was a Damned good song, though.
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:59am efd:

thanks Joe! I was thinking the same thing.

(about the song, that is!)
  Wed. 1/7/09 1:59am efd:

ouch... Sybil with the winning entry.
  Wed. 1/7/09 2:00am Joe:

Sybil, I restrained myself, why couldn't you?

No puns next week, we went well over our quota.
  Wed. 1/7/09 2:00am johnk77:

bruce vilanch is cool
