Listener comments!

  Tue. 3/17/09 11:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi. Nice instrumental from Jonathan Kane.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I sent the first comment? Woo hoo!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:16pm aw:

agreed this jonathan kane track is great

and that makes two of us in hyde park! if you mean the chicago one. I guess you could be from london and just sitting in a big city park posting away
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:18pm efd:

Hi Ken, hi aw. I was psyched to find that J. Kane track on his new CD tonight.

I always assumed Ken was in the NY Hyde Park.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:20pm john:

Hey Evan....great show last week!

Oh, and on behalf of everyone, you're welcome.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:22pm cheri:

heeeey evan ,this past sunday i became a GODMOTHER to my nephew,,,how was the finale i'm sorry i missed it,,=(=(
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:24pm efd:

Hi John, thanks for helping to make it great!

Cheri, the finale was really fun! Too bad you missed it, but sounds like you have a good excuse. :) Congrats!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:25pm Amanda:

Thank you for being the voice of us all, John! And for being you.

I can say the finale was great. When I walked in the first thing I saw onstage was EFD playing a cowbell.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm in Hyde Park, NY. I listen to the 90.1 signal while in the car and internet the rest of the time. Once in a while, I drive into NY City and you'd think the biggest city in the country and home of a fairly good amount of people who like cool music would have some decent radio stations. But they only have one (WFMU). I guess the other stations just threw in the towel and let 'FMU handle the cool stuff. BTW - Happy St. Patty's Day to all!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:28pm cheri:

evan thank you,couldyou please play the donna fargo tune "happiest girl in the whole usa for me,,ty again evan=)
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:29pm HotRod:

EFD was ROCKIN' that cowbell!!!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:29pm aw:

alright cool guess I'm all alone ;)

chicago doesn't have anything like wfmu as far as I know. good public station though (wbez)
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:31pm john:

I'm really disappointed I couldn't be there Sunday night--it rawked in all sorts of ways, to be sure, but not quite the same as seeing all y'all!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:33pm Sybil:

I'm ever so thankful for what I've gor.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:38pm Amanda:

The gracious rhino was thankful for what he's gored. In my experience, driving through on road trips and stuff, I have loved radio stations in Chicago. But 'most anything sounds interesting after New York's big ones, which are all terrible!

Hi, Sybil! Hi, HotRod!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:39pm Sybil:

This song makes me happy for no reason I can figure out.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:40pm St. Ratford:

I was humming this tune all the way home tonight! Spooky.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:41pm john:

Oh, and thanks, it was great fun being there last Tuesday. Callers nearly uniformly super awesome!

And hey, got my request played by YLT!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:42pm Sybil:

I always hum that tune. ("Driver's Seat") It's my "All Around The Watchtower".
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:45pm efd:

Hi Sybil, Amanda, St. R, HotRod, and everyone else!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:46pm efd:

Sybil, I was stunned that nobody knew "Driver's Seat!"
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:46pm toni d.:

hey everybody i'm back for one nite only just to say happy st. patricks day!!!!
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:49pm Laurie:

Sybil: Are you a cylon??
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:51pm Sybil:

I'm not allowed to say.
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:55pm jon:

I have a cylon-proff vault, you might know it
  Tue. 3/17/09 11:56pm toni d.:

kiss me,,i'm irish ox
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:01am BillyJam:

good post-Marathon show EFD! I am happy about the Marathon but I am bummed right now. I just lost my lovely silver iPod classic 160 GB player earlier this eve....fell out of my backpack since I didnt have it in usual case. And I either lost it at the rec center I go swimming at (but they said no one turned it in) or on the #3 MTA subway as I got out at the 14th St stop. Is it even worth my while checking with MTA lost and found in the morning or should I just kiss my iPod (which I didnt even have one full year) goodbye? And if so anyone got tips on best place to buy a replacement one - including refurbished ones? Tnx
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:04am Laurie:

Prince Buster is kind of an asshole and would make for a shitty boyfriend, no?
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:06am cheri:

yes,,laurie he is so SEXIST
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:08am Matt:

I dunno, I think he's pretty cool.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:10am Sybil:

Well, Matt, he's all yours!
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:12am Matt:

I'm booking a flight to Jamaica as we speak.

Wish me luck!
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:15am toni d.:

well i gotta skip outta here,,see yall next week,,g'nite,,,efd thank you for lettin me hang with you,,,,bye
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:16am C:

Oh man, sorry BJ. My Ipod died on me a few months ago. It wasn't the cost as much as the music I lost that killed me. I got a zune in protest and actually like it a lot better. They were on sale at Best Buy and were as cheap as I could find them online and I didn't have to pay shipping. I hope yours turns up though.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:22am BillyJam:

Thanks for that tip C
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:27am efd:

hey Billy, sorry to hear about your iPod - that really sucks! I hope you had backups of the music at least, to C's point; I'm pretty sure that the MTA lost & found wouldn't be that helpful, but it might be worth a shot just in case.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:28am Laurie:

My iPod got smashed by a monitor/ottoman combo at a King Khan/Jacuzzi Boys show. It was a wild party, and I bear no grudges. The nice people around me even checked to make sure I was okay as I struggled to wrest my purse from beneath the leather cube thingy. Awww.

I don't know if Apple replaces lost iPods that are still under warranty. Doubtful. I could get a replacement iPod for $120, but I think I'll hold out for an iPhone or something.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:32am Laurie:

Lead singer of Mi Ami sounds a little like Ian Svenonius, no? Or am I crazy?
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:32am john:

Laurie, Great taking your call(s) last Tuesday! Bad luck about the ipod, but at least you were OK. I don't know that I've ever seen a monitor/ottoman combo. Are you sure it wasn't a hassock? Or a tuffet?
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:33am toni d.:

i'm back for one minute---evan why the silent treatmeant??
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:33am Jeff-a-chusetts:

ha, yeahs i suppose he does
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:33am Danne D:

1-800-98what? The marathon's over?? Ah, well if ya missed the pledge boat you actually still can from the home page but that's another story :)

EFD! Another fantastic performance at the marathon - you just get better and better. And folks that weren't there, EFD is quite the matinee idol, I must say :D even though he's too modest to say the same.

Gotta love a playlist with some swingin' neckbreakers as well as some ska. God bless FMU :)

  Wed. 3/18/09 12:38am Laurie:

John: It was definitely ottoman-esque. I know for a fact that it was a leather cube meant for sitting on or resting your feet upon. I don't know, it's a weird club.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:42am efd:

toni/cheri, why is it that of all the other people whose comments I'm not responding to during my show you're the only one who thinks I'm giving them the "silent treatment?"
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:48am efd:

Danne, I appreciate the compliments. Good to see you on Sunday (and throughout the 'thon)!
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:50am Danne D:

I was thinking I was getting the silent treatment for a sec there ;) I know you're just make good radio sound easy and that it's like mission control over there right now :) It was great to see you too man. You're a popular dude and deservedly so.

Btw, Evan, ya wanna rap cd i found on the path train - it's apparently some dude named Savage who's from New Zealand and features Soulja Boy. It has a cover reminiscent of the Ohio Player's Honey cover except from the posterior view.

I found it when I went to vol at the station but forgot to leave it in the phone room :)

  Wed. 3/18/09 12:52am Amanda:

This is hylarious. I love it.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:55am Danne D:

yeah that is a classic :)

btw good to see ya at H-n-M as well Amanda.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:55am stingy d:

hey i saw ya on sunday too, you was great! i had fun that night even though i'm was very late. on another note it's good to be learning so much from irwin and ken right now.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:56am efd:

hey Stingy, you should have said hi. I was looking out for you - were you wearing your Anthony Mason shirt?
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:58am john:

Winter Hours....great WNYU band!
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:59am efd:

yeah, they were a little after my time at WNYU -I'll always think of them as a WHTG band.
  Wed. 3/18/09 12:59am stingy d:

yea that was me
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:00am stingy d:

i had a yellow hoodie on, someone told me it masked my identity, i told you good job and patted you on th eback but mostly i was just trying to get past you to give my freind a beer.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:02am Amanda:

Yes, DD, for sure. Sorry I didn't talk with you more! (I think you are the nice person I think I met, heh.)
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:07am john:

Not that anyone was dying to find out but me, the original of Hyacinth Girl was in fact '85. Kicked up a certain amount of dust finding that out.

And the two records Tommy Roe did with Curt Boettcher have just been reissued on a single CD. A must.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:11am efd:

stingy d - oh! I didn't realize that was you - I think you identified yourself by your proper first name, if I remember correctly.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:13am stingy d:

ha, yea most likely
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:14am Danne D:

Thx Amanda, yeah that was me :) No worries as I know you wanted to bask in Evan's considerable music knowledge :) I was a little occupied myself as well since H-n-M is always a great time to catch up with friends at the station. But it was great to see you there :)
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:17am efd:

I am whoo-ing for Joe, since he's not here.

  Wed. 3/18/09 1:21am Amanda:

Gasp...! Bask, never -- just drinking several beers and singing along with Bohemian Rhapsody. :)

Woooooooo Cyclone 60! Joe will be so psyched.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:33am Amanda:

A Cabbagehead sketch, maybe? It sounds familiar and like something Cabbagehead might say. But that's a shot in the dark.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:33am efd:

stand by...
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:34am Danne D:

LOL Amanda, well your joy in speaking with Evan was clear :) Btw I think the biggest highlight of all for me was Keili's sheer joy at basically all things Hoof-n-Mouth. She seems on her way to great things :)

Anyhow I'm going to lay down and bask in the rest of Evan's excellent show. Cheers all! :)
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:36am Sam Soule:

Crazy. Sam from Portland, OR here. As I'm listening, I'm writing a press reelease for... THE LEADERS. I've got 'em booked for show at Slabtown here in PDX. They're a Portland band with a new line-up featuring Kelly Gately of Fireballs of Freedom on guitar. Terrific band.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:37am stingy d:

ah yes... this shit is fly! cybotron! absolutely!
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:37am efd:

hey Sam, thanks for checking in! Is there a link for more info on that band? That single kills! Tell 'em to come out East!
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:39am efd:

....aaaaaand, I can almost hear the radios and computers clicking off.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:40am stingy d:

i just started a twitter account and everything
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:42am Sybil:

That clicking you hear is the approaching centurion...
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:43am Sam Soule:

Leaders: www.myspace.com/leaderspdx
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:44am efd:

thanks, Sam!
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:53am john:

Heard Autograph on what I think was a March 1985 American Top 40 on satellite radio this weekend. Apparently, they believed they had "the power of metal but with better tunes." Just saying.
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:55am Jessica:

Thanks for another lovely show! Hi! G'night!
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:56am john:

Was that THE Jessica?
  Wed. 3/18/09 1:58am efd:

hi Jessica! bye Jessica!

John - they were right!
  Wed. 3/18/09 2:02am stingy d:

ha! this whole time i thought it was "preacher" cool show see ya
  Wed. 3/18/09 2:41pm Calzone!:

Just checking your show on the archive....The 'kids' don't know 'Drivers Seat'? Zoot alours! What is the world coming to! This was an FM staple for like....too many years!
  Fri. 3/20/09 6:43pm Umed Jim:

At least one dj besides EFD knows Drivers Seat. A couple years ago at the record fair I bought a copy of that Sniff & the Tears lp from Diane Kamikaze. Why was she selling it? She had an extra copy of course!
Someday I will post during the show...
