Listener comments!

  Tue. 11/3/09 11:17pm toni daytona:

hiya evan,,,how was your halloween?? did you go to any parties??? i sure missed you was away for a while =)
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:20pm AZ:

That Top Secret 45 was the most absurd pastiche of Propaganda-era Sparks I've ever heard. Also, the only pastiche of Propaganda-era Sparks I've ever heard. Does this Huge Hart single predate or postdate "Oh Luncinda" by the Only Ones? Because it feels kinda Only Ones-esque, don't you think?
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:22pm osvi:

Yo EFD, you guys hit my b-day sooner than I do, isnt that crazy? Im blessing my day with a bottle of cheap wine and your beats. Feliz cumpleanos to me...
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:25pm toni daytona:

i'm afraid this is my last comment for tonite evan,,,but i'll still be listening so could you please play something romantic for me & brad??? thnx efd,,=)
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:26pm efd:

osvi, happy (earlyish) birthday!
AZ, I think the "Lucinda" you just heard is post-Only Ones. And yea, that Top Secret 45 is... interesting.
Toni, I had a quiet Halloween at home. No parties.
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:40pm AZ:

I think Alzo was a person, not a band. He was part of the duo Alzo & Udine who made a decent LP that shows up every once in a while.
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:46pm efd:

you're right AZ, the writing credit on that single is "A. Fronte" - presumably the "A" is for "Alzo."
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:51pm toni d.:

evan---i know what i said before but PLEASE find something romantic to play for brad & i ty again,,,g'nite=)
  Tue. 11/3/09 11:53pm Peanut G:

Found on the 99-cent store kids' bookshelf: "Presumably A Is for Alzo": #1 In the Mini-Murder Noir For Nippers(tm) alphabooks series.
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:04am Election Night:

or maybe Alzo Rans.
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:06am Amanda:

Jet! Jet! Thank you for not being tired of this song yet.
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:10am Brian Wilson:

Hammer time!
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:16am Peanut G:

What, no Alzo Sprachs?
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:22am Aharon:

Ah, bummer, no Jeremy Jays. Well, he deserves my money.
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:31am Jessica:

No way!
EFD: that's my v first, er, boyfriend, circa 1982, fronting this band.
Phenomenal front man. Awesome band. Good effing times.
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:33am efd:

wow, no kidding! The Evan "Funk" Davies show, playing the Music Of Your Life.
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:39am J Geils:

The pages from my mind are stripped
O no, I can't deny it
O yeah, I guess I got to buy it
My memories have just been sold!
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:48am lyrics:

what kind of girl are you?
  Wed. 11/4/09 12:48am ?:

apb sounding like low rent ACR. Shack up for real.
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:10am 888888888888:

  Wed. 11/4/09 1:15am Joshua K:

Nice song about being a whore.
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:16am jaded:

hard boiled? pass the salt
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:44am Joshua K:

I don't know how to do any of these dances
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:45am nec13:

I just checked in. J. Geils was here?
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:47am Joshua K:

I watched "The Mack" last weekend.
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:47am hairsplitter:

his lyrics were. momentarily.
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:50am nec13:

Evan, will you be playing Donnie Iris every week?
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:51am blunt guy:

and why the f--- not?
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:51am efd:

nope... it just happened that the single was still in my singles box, and I couldn't resist busting it out again.
  Wed. 11/4/09 1:52am nec13:

I don't have a problem with it, blunt guy. Who doesn't like Donnie Iris/Jaggerz?
  Wed. 11/4/09 2:48pm rory:
