Listener comments!

  Tue. 4/7/09 11:04pm joabj:

Wow, back when Gary Numan still had a guitars in his flat!
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:07pm Joe:

Stereolab - so perfect.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:09pm dan in falls church VA:

tubeway army

Good schtart, E. Funk D.!
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:16pm Joe:

Sensing a theme...
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:17pm joabj:

Woah, great track! Rockin as we used to say
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:18pm cheri:

hiya evan---i want you to know that you're the GREATEST d.j in fmu history!!!!!!
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:18pm efd:

hi joabj, dan and Joe!

And Joe, don't overthink it. :)
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:19pm Joe:

In a young man's mind it's a simple world/
there's a little room for music and the rest is girls.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:20pm Sybil:

I've got a little room for music.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:23pm john:


And am I totally hallucinating, speaking of The Godfathers, thinking I heard the Sid Presley Experience on WNYU?
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:24pm dave:

man, jonathan kane just keeps getting awesomer.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:25pm Sybil:

This song reminds me of the time I listened to a Stranglers album that had a well-placed scratch on it.

And didn't realize it for about 20 minutes.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:25pm Joe:

I know, Dave. I'm really starting to think I should go back and listen to some music from those "The Swans."
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:25pm efd:

John, I wouldn't be surprised, though I think they were after my time there.
Dave, agreed.
Hi Sybil! 1-0 so far!
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:25pm Sybil:

That's not a criticism.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:26pm john:

That wasn't a scratch, Sybil. Just the whole Meninblack album.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:26pm Sybil:

How did you guess, john?
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:28pm John:

Because I own the <yawn> record. And saw them on that tour, way the heck back in early 1981...and that's what it sounded like, though it was fun live, anyway.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:29pm dave:

yeah, joe. i've never heard any of the swans stuff. i'm almost afraid to.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:31pm joabj:

The producers are the secret history of rock n' roll.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:33pm john:

Madame Wong's was on Wilshire Blvd in Santa Monica, I think. Did my time there in the late 80s.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:34pm Courtney:

As far as The Kinks, I'm partial to "Something Else By The Kinks".
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:34pm joabj:

F2F,SE, VGPS, A, LvP&MG, MH, EiSB & don't forget KK and the Great Lost Kinks Album...
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:35pm johnk77:

there were 2 madame wong's in southern california in the early 1980's.
i remember the first one was in LA's chinatown, perhaps downtown LA?
the second madame wong's was on the west side of LA.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:36pm Joe:

Wow the vocals sound -great-.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:36pm Listener Pete:


Regarding Stereolab, this was taken from PitchFork

They are taking a break but will be releasing new material. Go the link I've attached

  Tue. 4/7/09 11:36pm cheri:

efd--you always rock my my tues nites!!!!!!=)=) thank you as always,,
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:37pm john:

You're right, i think the original was in Chinatown but that closed early, while the Santa Monica one was open into the early 90s--I couldn't have got there before '86.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:37pm eattothebeat:

Re: 'Lab -- It's officially a "hiatus" but they do have a new 31 song record coming out, so fear not.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:37pm Glenn L:

Thanks Joe!

Hey, JohnK77.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:40pm efd:

thanks all for the Stereolab (and Madam Wong) updates! And thanks, Cheri, for the kind words as always.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:41pm johnk77:

  Tue. 4/7/09 11:41pm efd:

  Tue. 4/7/09 11:46pm cheri:

i love this set!!!!! evan if you're still on the summer schedule toni daytona mite come back,,,=)=)
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:46pm Glenn L:

efd, truth be told, It was JohnK77 who showed me almost all of what I know about live sound engineering.

It's all his fault...., I mean I owe all my fame & fortune to him.
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:47pm efd:

cheri, you know Toni Daytona? I had no idea!

In other Luann news, do you think Luann and Gunther are finally going to hook up??
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:47pm efd:

well all hail JohnK77 too, in that case!
  Tue. 4/7/09 11:52pm cheri:

  Wed. 4/8/09 12:00am stingy d:

i'm glad you understood that. sometimes you just gotta cut to the chase you know?
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:01am Laurie:

I heard Night Fever and was hoping for a disco tune! Alas!

I really love that Blood Bank song.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:01am Joe:

stingy sometimes i think you and me are kindred spirits.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:02am efd:

Hey Laurie! Yeah, not the Bee Gees song - but still good!
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:03am johnk77:

  Wed. 4/8/09 12:03am stingy d:

we might be. i don't always smile when i'm happy. do you do that too?
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:06am stingy d:

yo i think i got tennis elbow from riding a bike, whats that shit? and in fact, i never smile.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:06am cheri:

evan---i gotta skip outa here,,,that was a great live set,,thnx for keepin me company see you next week=)=)
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:06am Joe:

smiling is for herbs, d

EFD- he should've borrowed the helmet too. Were these sets recorded at the same time?
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:08am cheri:

ohhhhhh keep on rockin EVAN!!!!!
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:10am stingy d:

oh damn! i stupid was not able to make it to the u.s girls show that i won tickets for last week. i work basically 80 hours a week fffuuuuhhhhhhh
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:11am whiskey d:

i'm gettin loaded. hopefully i can walk outside and club a herb in the skull with this blackjack
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:11am Laurie:

For a second I thought you said Action Painting! and got really excited. But alas.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:14am stingy lsd:

  Wed. 4/8/09 12:19am stingy schooly:

no more rock and roll
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:20am efd:

Joe, you're right, he should have borrowed the helmet also. The sessions were recorded a week apart, but I acquired information during the Cyclone 60 session that led to Mr. Fiberglass's heroics the following week,

Is that cryptic enough? I will not be commenting further on the matter.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:21am john:

I thought Action Painting too for a moment. Just another 1990 flashback, I'm afraid.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:26am cheri:

evan--whens your birthday?? mine is july 12th,,,
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:28am stingy d:

mines, not that anyone asked, but because it's awful close to cheri... is july 14th
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:38am efd:

a bastille day birthday! nice, Stingy. Mine is Sept 27.

You all realize that now of course I'll expect you all to remember it and wish me a happy birthday in about 5 1/2 months with no additional reminders.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:40am Joe:

Yes, I'm sure there will be no additional reminders on your publicly accessable twitter, facebook, and myspace pages.

Leos rule, btw.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:41am Joe:

And awesome job getting the Obits! I am SO INTO that record.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:41am Sybil:

That is why we have iCal.

Great live set, btw. (I have had my hands full, but I enjoyed listening to it while I worked!)
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:45am cheri:

efd,,i'll certainly remember,,,& again thnx for your company,,,g'nite=)=)
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:46am efd:

goodnight Cheri!

Sybil, glad you enjoyed the set! And Joe, glad you're looking forward to the Obits - I am too! Took a while to get it all finalized, but I got the official word yesterday. Woo!
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:53am Danne D:

Evan Funk Dominator, lord of the diamond, good evening sir!

3*3 = 9
3*3*3 =27
= Evan's birthday.

I'm yet another Cancerian in the audience. 6/30 :)

Go Barre Ks!
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:54am Laurie:

  Wed. 4/8/09 12:56am stingy d:

ok, i'm gonna finish my glass of whiskey, and listen to jack nitzsche while i fall asleep, its a pleasure as always. one of these days me and joe will beat the shit out of someone for you evan. and then we'l clink our beers so hard to crumble in our hands, and we'll laugh and laugh.
  Wed. 4/8/09 12:58am Joe:

You know, I always figured Ken would be the first WFMU Dj to inspire violence in his name.

But on the other hand, I do enjoy the occasional beer...
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:00am stingy d:

ken is a barrel of pillows. goodnight
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:03am john:

Evan, were The Oysters from somewhere around your original neck of the woods? I could be totally making it up, but I vaguely recall them from college.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:07am efd:

John, your memory serves you well, to quote Julie Driscoll. They are indeed from Boston, and included a pre-Titanics/Satanics/Upper Crust Dave Fredette
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:25am Laurie:

Bed time for me!! Goodnight, friendo.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:26am efd:

ha! goodnight, Laurie!
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:28am john:

And for about 28 years here I was thinking I was the only person in America who liked Secret Affair.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:29am Joe:

You know, I'm beginning to suspect that Evan has a soft spot for power-pop.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:32am efd:

Joe, you are a man of very acute perceptions.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:34am Joe:

GG king - what a name.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:39am john:

More to the point, I have an opportunity to pick up Matt Wieters in my other league, and can't decide which everyday player to drop for a Triple-A catcher.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:41am Danne D:

my team is finally getting coordinated a little. My pitcher gave up an RBI single to my other guy and then continued on to get a save :)

We'll need to do a who's who and how on the league site efd!

(As a side note, I've been humbled to realize that I haven't been a very active baseball fan for like, oh a decade so hopefully I don't embarrass myself.)

Anyhow, enjoy the show as always EFD!
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:43am Danne D:

er, enjoying the show that is
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:46am efd:

thanks, Dan.

John, I'm not sure if Wieters would be worth dropping a player who's actually on a major league team....?
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:48am john:

Good point, but he's still probably the AL ROY after they call him up in a month or two, and I have five guys who can play right field, so it's adios Elijah Dukes (bad attitude, great upside) or J. D. Drew (Great attitude, bad upside).
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:50am efd:

do you have as many RF in your other league as you have 2B in my league?
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:53am john:

Technically, more, because of all the outfielders who play multiple positions in the OF. But hey, anyone needs a 2B who isn't Brandon Phillips, I'm your man.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:54am Danne D:

sorry I only use 2Bs named Lopez apparently
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:56am john:

Whoa, I haven't heard this Maisonettes single since the '80s, and I actually own it.
  Wed. 4/8/09 1:58am Danne D:

g'night kids!
