  Tue. 5/19/09 11:10pm Sybil:

Good evening all!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:12pm G:

Jeez, I'd completely forgotten that Teacup tune since it was on top 40 AM radio originally... I'd moved to England in Dec 1971 and must have heard it there...
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:12pm Joe:

Cyclone 60 is playing Arlene's grocery on my birthday.

In other news, I now know what I'll be doing on my birthday.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:12pm Sybil:

Spain? What's this?

I've had a schedule which required me to get up at 5 AM this past semester... so I've been mostly half-asleep during the show. But I remember reading something about Spain in comments last time. Details?
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:13pm Sybil:

Hmm, now to figure out when Joe's birthday is...
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:13pm G:

Hey Sybil, maybe it's that Primavera event mentioned on the station's home page...
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:14pm Joe:

that information is on a strictly need-to-rock basis.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:14pm Sybil:

Oh, you think I can read?
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:15pm G:

My bad :-P
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:15pm Joe:

Great Ramones song? Or the greatest Ramones song?
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:15pm john:

Hey Evan! Nice to see underappreciated Ramones gems pulled out of the vault!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:17pm Deaconlight:

Ok now you're really getting into vintage Deaconlight territoriy with I'm Affected.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:18pm dustin:

  Tue. 5/19/09 11:19pm toni daytona:

  Tue. 5/19/09 11:19pm confused:

where's cheri?
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:21pm Sybil:

confused, you took the words right out of my mouth. Err, fingers.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:21pm efd:

Rachel, if anything happens to my house while I'm away you're the #1 suspect!

Hi everyone, glad you're enjoying the Ramones! DD, that's why I never listen to your show - so I can't be accused of stealing from it! ;)

Sybil, yes, I'm going over for the Primavera fest and a little extra sightseeing.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:22pm Deaconlight:

Aw this is one of my favorite Ramones pop songs! Road to Runi in such a fave album
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:23pm confused:

gotcha syb, maybe we fmu listeners pick up styles pretty fast ...
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:25pm Neal Adams:

Hi Evan! "I Don't Care"...best lyrics ever!!!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:26pm efd:

hey Neal! great to see you here. I agree!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:26pm Deaconlight:

Another great song. I am gonna play some Ramones tomorrow - don't know if I'll repeat any of yours of nor. Your show is so awesome. First time I heard your show it was like you'd raided my playlists but then I realized - WOW - it's not just me that knows all this cool music!!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

When a band that has a better sound than The Ramones comes along, WFMU will surely be there to play them. Happy birthday, Joey, wherever you are!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:29pm pseu:

is that NEAL? Hi Neal! and of course, hello to our illustrious host, EFD. Excellent as always!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:31pm efd:

damn, the stars are out tonight! hi, Pseu!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:32pm aharon:

And how are we meant to do the work that needs doing at 11:30 on a Tuesday night when this aural glory is playing?
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:33pm Deaconlight:

Evan - have you seen http://wildmooseparty.com lately?
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:33pm Neal Adams:

Hi Pseu, long time no talk to! Just sitting here diggin' the EFD show...sounds great, just needs a little Joe King Carasco (JK)....
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:34pm E.L.:

I love this song!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:34pm efd:

Neal, careful what you wish for - you'd be surprised at what's in my record bag!

Or maybe you wouldn't be.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:34pm john:

Aharon--personally, I'm watching two games, dumping crappy relief pitchers, and staring at the cover of a book I need to read, so it's clearly possible to have a productive evening.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:36pm Sybil:

john has me beat by one book cover and a couple of crappy relief pitchers.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:37pm Sybil:

Joe King Carasco... mmmmmmm....
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:37pm john:

Sybil, if you're interested in Chris Ray or Joe Beimel, I'll pay for delivery.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:37pm rachel jensen:

evan-- don't worry about your house,i'll just be taking care of it and i won't use your good china=)=)
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:42pm gabe:

what's the background music while the dj speaks? .. prob a faq
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:43pm efd:

Joe, that's your cue...
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:44pm Joe:

Yo La Tengo!

It's the break from "Saturday Night Live" by The Lordz of Brooklyn. Which, in turn, is a sample from the opening guitar line from The Guess Who's "American Woman"

I'm just gonna copy that somewhere and hang onto it.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:46pm Aharon:

John, you win this round! With an assist from Sybil.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:46pm coalhard:

birthday wishes out to pete townshend too--64 today!!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:48pm Sybil:

I'm way overdue for a Yoyo mention, so here goes:

Drinking advice, from Julian Tavarez:

Don't drink beer. Beer makes you fat. Hard Alcohol just passes through you. Johnny Walker yes, beer no.

(It must work! Yoyo says so!)
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:50pm rachel jensen:

  Tue. 5/19/09 11:50pm Sybil:

Oh, man, Neal asks and EFD delivers!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:51pm Neal Adams:

Now we're talking!!!

(I'd be posting more often here but I can't figure out those tough math problems)
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:51pm pseu:

JKC -oh no you didn't!
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:53pm efd:

  Tue. 5/19/09 11:54pm efd:

Rachel - goodnight, and i'll see you next week.

and later tonight, if history is any indication.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:58pm Sybil:

Oh EFD, you know that past performance is no guarantee of future results.
  Tue. 5/19/09 11:58pm Neal Adams:

Why you, I oughta......
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:02am Aharon:

Thank you, Sybil. Words to sleep on (when the bedspins slow).
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:16am deaconlight:

oh evan - you're such a "dog"
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:20am efd:

btw DD, to answer your earlier question about the web site - I was checking it out a few days ago and it looks great! But I can't really talk about that here.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:22am Joe:

I would've gone! But I was sick. Also I'm probably not cool enough.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:22am coalhard:

on this date may 20 1944 joe cocker was born
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:24am Social Security:

Start sending his check...
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:26am Sybil:

In honor of the day then:

  Wed. 5/20/09 12:27am efd:

Joe, I forgot, I was reading about your illness on Facebook, How are you feeling?
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:29am Amanda:

Huh whuh? Someone mention the Demands in here? I was working the door for that show, mostly bored that no one I knew deigned to show up. But it was a lot of fun. Wore on super late. Lot of sick girls there who'd caught strep throat off Joe.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:31am Joe:

You know, the internet is a funny thing, because now that I'm finally coherent again, I keep talking to people who are like, "Oh yeah, I heard you're sick." And I'm momentarily baffled. How could they know? I haven't spoken to another human in days! Then I remember - I'm a compulsive Facebook user.

But I finally kicked it today, thanks for asking! Just in time!
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:33am Joe:

That was hilarious! What the hell was that?
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:33am coalhard:

next efd show--falls on hank williams jr birthday--wear sunglasses!!!
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:35am efd:

thanks for the tip, coalhard - i just got new sunglasses, too!

Joe, i guess your eyes have not recovered to the point where they can shift their gaze slightly to the left? or is it a scrolling problem?
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:37am Sybil:

A Camp!

Amazon was just trying to get me to download one of theirs...
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:38am E.L.:

Let's ask Martin Short what that was.

(Sorry Joe. I couldn't resist)
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:39am efd:

Amazon might be on to something!

They were here earlier tonight recording their session for Trent's show.

(E.L. - good one!)
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:40am Joe:

I... um... your... face. Your face has a scrolling problem!

I'm still on medicine.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:48am coalhard:

on sept 22 3009---your show will air that day---same day toni basil born--she could dance!!
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:49am coalhard:

meant 2009
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:49am E.L.:

Joe, in all seriousness, get better.

There's a fancy and pompous restaurant in Providence that doesn't put salt and pepper on the table because the food is "perfectly seasoned." A friend of mine once snuck salt and pepper shakers into the restaurant and when his entree arrived, he stood up, removed the salt and pepper from his coat pocket and shook it all over his meal.

The waitress actually screamed.

So to answer your question: yes, Providence is a ridiculous place.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:50am Sybil:

coalhard, I can hardly wait!
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:51am Amanda:

Wow, E.L., I have been to that pompous restaurant! So *that's* why I couldn't wear my Tabasco T-shirt there.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:52am Joe:

That's the greatest story ever.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:53am efd:

I agree with E.L. And not just on the point about Providence being ridiculous.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:55am G:

My recollection is that Newport is even worse.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:56am Sybil:

Yes, Joe, I join in the wish that you recover speedily and completely.
  Wed. 5/20/09 12:56am Peter Griffin:

Quahog's not so bad, though. Try the Drunken Clam.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:01am E.L.:

Oh if you guys like that story you should come visit. That's nothing. Our politicians and townies are even more preposterous. There are a few good bars though.

Yes, Newport is like Providence if it won the Power Ball and blew all it's money on fifty yachts.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:02am Amanda:

"Bruit" means "Noise," I'm pretty sure. You proounced it fine.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:02am Amanda:

  Wed. 5/20/09 1:02am E.L.:

I meant "its." *sigh*
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:04am Amanda:

It's just so late at night to be typing.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:04am E.L.:

Yes it's is.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:05am Joe:

halbah shoblogn?
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:09am Sybil:

I, that is,... what?

Man, I can't wait until this semester is over. And I can keep normal hours again.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:10am Jessica:

k, I was gonna claim "too crispity toasty to type" but I think I'll instead just say "What Joe said." Hi, tho!
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:11am Sybil:

Anyone can type, any old time, easy...
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:15am Sybil:

I think "aspic tines" is my new favorite band name.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:16am Joe:

props on reppin the Aceyalone album, Davies - just got that a few days ago and its dooooooope
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:18am efd:

hey, Jessica! i was thinking of you when I saw E.L.'s "it's is" comment.

Sybil, I'm surprised that Aspic Tines album hasn't gotten more attention!
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:23am Joe:

Maybe everyone else is -lame-.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:25am Liner Notes:

Aspic Tine is the musical Andromeda Strain?
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:31am john:

Whoa, that was SO Shop Assistants-ish, with a sprinkling of Talulah Gosh. And yes, that's a huge compliment.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:33am Danne D:

Howdy all you funkaroos out there!
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:35am efd:

hey Danne D! I was just thinking I haven't done a fantasy baseball update in a couple of weeks - and we've got three managers here, at least! although i'm not sure if the third of the three is still here.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:38am Danne D:

yeah :) it's been a fun season so far. Though I still can't figure out how when I think my team's had a lousy night I move up and when I think they've had a good night they move down. I see you've begun your march up the standings btw.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:42am Joe:


No, I don't know what that sounds like.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:44am Danne D:

yay me :)
btw, Evan's totally going to go all Mine That Bird and come off the pace to win this thing!
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:45am john:

Bree-coh-lazh. More or less "DIY." Knew that French major would come in handy one distant day.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:49am efd:

thanks John! and also Joe.

Danne, your confidence is inspiring and hopefully not misplaced.
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:50am Danne D:

no problem efd :) I'd just like to get first play for one day before it all falls apart!
  Wed. 5/20/09 1:57am Joe:

Cynthia Santaglia is a very nice lady! Even to really, really drunk people.

Just thought I'd get that out there. Great show, EFD.
  Wed. 5/20/09 2:46am ?:

totally spelled her name wrong.
  Wed. 5/20/09 11:07am efd:

I wouldn't say "totally" - you only got one letter wrong.
  Thu. 5/21/09 11:10am Calzone!:

Finally getting to listen to your show today EFD! Fantastic Job! Love the Tinted Windows/Red Kross segue! Bravo!
  Tue. 9/15/09 11:47am chuck e love:
