Listener comments!

  Mon. 10/26/09 10:22pm efd:

If you're thinking of requesting the Shattered Glass single I'll tell you right now, the b-side is way better.
  Mon. 10/26/09 10:25pm john:

Awesome haul! I'd be all about Nick Gilder and The Passions. APB for old times sake, too. Haven't heard Cindy Bullens in about 30 years, and which was the one with the White Sox reference?
  Mon. 10/26/09 10:26pm Joe:

Hello people of the future! Here are my requests - FROM THE PAST

APB - because its APB and APB is awesome.

The Jaggerz - The Rapper because it's extremely incongruous

Purple Reign because how can you not play a band named that.

The Friendly Hopefuls - "Punks of 76 medley" because it sounds extremely promising.

"So Right" from "Free The Preacher" because its such a great song. I was gonna see if I could find anything on the album that hasn't already been played but according to the playlist search, it's already been pretty thoroughly worked over.

Oh, and the B side of the Shattered Glass single.
  Mon. 10/26/09 10:36pm efd:

oh yeah, the White Sox song ("White Sox Fan") is the b-side of the Huge Hart single. Although it seems to have little if any baseball content, so I'm not sure what's up there.

Joe, bear in mind that since you haven't heard the A-side of the Shattered Glass single you don't really have know what I'm judging the b-side against.
  Tue. 10/27/09 7:03am calzone!:

EFD.....I wanna hear Racey, cuz I dig the boss sound of a Chinn/Chapman record...plus Julie Jumper, Gilder, Diesel, Spizzoil, and a double shot of Donnie Iris medley; The Rapper>Ah,Leah would be plastic fantastic!
  Tue. 10/27/09 4:48pm Lex Dexter:

I am a 30 year-old, only just now beginning serious power pop studies. It would bolster my morale if you could maybe, possibly play the B side to that Dwight Twilley single, and send it out to Power pop Pop-pop.
  Tue. 10/27/09 4:51pm Will:

I would like to request Kimberley Rew - "Stomping All Over The World". Thanks EFD.
  Tue. 10/27/09 4:57pm AZ:

For wildly different reasons, it would be hard to go wrong with either the Radio Stars ("From A Rabbit" = probably their best song) or Dickie Goodman. And I've never actually heard "Humbug," the B-side of Greg Lake's "...Father Christmas." (Although there's probably a good reason for that.)
  Tue. 10/27/09 5:07pm efd:

AZ, I'm so glad you requested the Dickie Goodman record - pretty sure that will be the show opener. That Greg Lake might be a promo, though, so no b-side.

And Lex Dexter, I'm pretty sure the Twilley is a promo as well so you might just have to suffer through the a-side. :)

Will and Calzone, thanks for your requests!
  Tue. 10/27/09 5:16pm Amanda:

I want to hear something off the Throbbing Lobster comp. It doesn't matter what.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:02pm G:

You sdound like Tom tonight
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:05pm Spike in SF:

I vote for the Diesel song. I drove by Sausalito on Sunday, and whenever I'm there I think of that song. Haven't heard it in years.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:07pm AZ:

This States song sounds like Sparks meets the Raspberries. Fab!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:07pm dustin:

i keep thinking this is Squeeze!! I like
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:08pm Sir Spence:

Woah! I loved that song. I definitely agree on the Sparks comment. I thought it was them at first.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:09pm DJ Terre T:

Ah Leah by Donnie Iris... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORD!!!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:10pm nec13:

Dahnie Iris-The Bob Dylan of Pittsburgh
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:10pm Spoony:

One vote for Suzi Quatro, please.

Sorry I missed you this weekend, Evan. I could only make Sunday for an hour. You can't even make it to the Norton table in that time.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:10pm Jim:

God bless you for playing Ah! Leah! I was about to buy it off of iTunes this past weekend, but didn't.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:12pm Jim:

And I was hoping you'd follow it with The Rapper.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:13pm rachel jansen:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:14pm john:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:14pm DJ Terre T:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:16pm gary:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:16pm Laurie:

Suzi Quatro and Spizzoil, please!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:17pm G:

Punks of 76 sounds intriguing. Fear not, we are prepared if serendipity doesn't play out 100%...
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:18pm nec13:

Evan: Is that Nick Gilder song a cover of Them or The Beach Boys? Or is it not a cover at all?
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:19pm TG:

"hot summer night in sausalito" – perfect for a rainy fall NYC evening
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:19pm G:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:19pm efd:

hi everyone! Suzi Quatro, Spizzoil, Kimberley Rew, Punks of 76 -- AND MORE -- are all coming up!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:21pm Amanda:

Good job getting the term "InterActiv" trademarked, by the way.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:22pm rachel jansen:

evan--will you also spin halloween tunes for me??
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:22pm G:

Now Amanda owes him licensing.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:24pm Sybil:

This song sounds as if I really should remember it.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:24pm G:

What tells me Hot Soup's lead singer listened to Hendrix records...
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:25pm efd:

nec13- that is a Nicky G original.

No Halloween tunes, Rachel - lots of other shows doing that, though
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:26pm efd:

more requests coming up! don't panic!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:28pm Camel:

Whew, I thought I'd been fired again!!!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:32pm AZ:

Just bought the States record on ebay for 8 bucks. Very excited!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:32pm Spoony:

Donnie Iris- The Pride of Pittsburgh
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:34pm toni daytona:

efd i want to hear BLOCKBUSTER by sweet,,i know you won't let me down,,=)
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:35pm dave:

i don't care what track you play off that chiliwack record, but i want proof that chiliwack did anything besides that "gone gone gone" song, 'cause i'm pretty sure chiliwack didn't.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:38pm efd:

dave, you're in for a pleasant surprise!

AZ, congrats! you're in for a treat.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:41pm toni d.:

efd,,am i in for a treat also?? i hope =)
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:43pm Tough Cop:

DJ harrassment is illegal in this jurisdiction, bub.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:44pm Laurie:

I think I need to hear "Skating in the Streets," too. Is it about roller boogie?
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:44pm dave:

oh, and obligatory record fair bragging: brown vinyl 10" version of wreckless eric's first album: ch34p. marbled vinyl stranglers promo ep: ch34per. so THERE.

Thank you, Mr. DJ!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:47pm efd:

Spoony, I'm going to renege on Suzi - that's not one of her better works.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:48pm chris:

I'd like to vote for Top Secret - Let Me Take Your Photograph. Great show so far Evan
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:48pm Suzi:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:49pm toni daytona:

  Tue. 10/27/09 11:50pm Amanda:

This is so fun, seriously. I've loved these past two sets.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:50pm john:

It could also be the riff from the Sesame Street theme.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:50pm Movie Idea:

"Clueless in TX"
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:50pm DJ Terre T:

Thx 4 the Kimberley Rew---u can't fail with the Soft Boys/Katrina & the Waves provenance!
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:51pm G:

Great hour...
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:53pm dave:

holy crap.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:54pm nec13:

Sounds vaguely like Barry Gibb.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:54pm dave:

yeah, ok, not the song you meant to play, but is this really the same band that did that 'gone gone gone' song?
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:54pm Pete:


Thanks for the Kimberly Rew song! It came from The Bible Of Bop EP he put out in 81 along with the 7"
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:55pm efd:

yep, same band. i'm going to play the song i meant to play when i do the midnight ticket oasis, since the LP version is 6 minutes long
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:55pm AZ:

Dave, Chilliwack went all the way back to the 60's, when they were known as the Collectors. Most of their (large) discography sounds nothing like the "Gone Gone Gone" song.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:57pm dave:

serves me right. i thought they were just a bunch of romantics wannabes who had a habit of hanging around manholes.
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:57pm G:

dave -- check ""chilliwack" in wikipedia -- they actually reformed in 2005, fwiw
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:57pm claude:

I'd like to request Mesmoreyes by Drezniak
  Tue. 10/27/09 11:58pm dave:

color me schooled.
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:00am toni d.:

evan--g'nite and have a very happy & safe halloween,,,i gotta skip out now,,see you next week,,,luv ya=)
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:09am claude:

sorry evan, tuned in late and didn't see it.
how about Mickey Jupp - Don't Talk To Me?
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:16am efd:

I'll see if I can get that Mickey Jupp in, a few others asked for that as well.

goodnite Toni, see you next week (or, more likely, in about 20 minutes)
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:17am ?:

Set the egg timer...
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:18am randy in NC:

This Clean seems kinda Neil Young-ish no?
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:18am Chris:

Never listened to your show before but this is great. On call at a hospital in Central MN but now things aren't so bad. Keep it up.
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:19am efd:

hi Chris, and welcome! Hope all stays quiet at the hospital.
  Wed. 10/28/09 12:58am Hatch:

If you want to hear some great soft pop with a hint of banjo, you should definitely play that Alzo single.
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:02am efd:

yeah, i checked that one out at home last night - nice! Thanks for recommending it!
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:02am efd:

btw Hatch (and everyone else), if you didn't hear that States track at the start of the show make sure you check the archive - right up your alley, I think.
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:07am Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans - EFD I wanna request that you keep on doing the EFD thing! That is all.
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:07am john:

Great to hear Cindy Bullens again after, oh, 30 years. Long-since defunct record store here had a big poster for that album up in the stairway you had to climb to get there. They also had one for the Eagles, which may have led to their early demise.
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:12am Terre T:

Thanx! Who's better than u Evan?
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:18am Danne D:

Hiya Terre!
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:32am Terre T:

I guess a close second to my query above would have to be you Danne D!
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:43am Joe:

This is awesome, and furthermore is another proof of my theory that all bands with "Super" in their name are awesome. And my theory that all bands named after astrological formations are awesome.
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:45am Danne D:

aw thx TT :)
Anyhow I'm gonna hit the sack and log off - night all you find funkophiles :) night EFD!
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:52am efd:

thanks as always for checking in, Danne!
  Wed. 10/28/09 1:58am AZ:

Stellar show, Evan! Many epiphanies...
  Fri. 10/30/09 1:12am CT:

Love that Sausalito Summernight.
