In the words of LJP: "He plays the best shit."
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:11pm Greg:

EFD, you are truly a walking music encyclopedia!
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:11pm john:

The Rick James tribute revival lives!
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:14pm efd:

hi everyone! Greg, I appreciate the compliment but for true encyclopedic knowledge I must refer you to Mr. AZ, above.
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:16pm AZ:

If I was truly encyclopedic, I'd have known about that Driver record before EFD played it.
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:17pm cathy lane:

howdy king evan,,,,how was your week???
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:18pm efd:

  Tue. 1/26/10 11:20pm efd:

  Tue. 1/26/10 11:23pm cathy lane:

  Tue. 1/26/10 11:25pm Mighty Mouse:

Here I come to save the day!

I hereby declare this a creepiness-free comments board.


I'm not too late or anything, am I?
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:25pm john:

Haven't heard this Passions song in ages. Brilliant!
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:26pm AZ:

Major props to you for playing a Passions song that isn't "German Film Star"!
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:27pm efd:

cool John, glad you're enjoying it! (& AZ)

M. Mouse, maybe just a few minutes too late.
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:28pm M. Mouse:

Damn. Story of my freakin life.
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:30pm cathy lane:

king efd---toni & i want to know if you could play some sweet tonite,,,,thnx king evan=)=)
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:31pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I loved the passions because of the "rinky dink" college radio show you did
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:32pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Cavett singing "Country Death Song" now that's something I'd pay to see.
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:36pm cathy lane:

i guess you don't care about those shows,,,king evan
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:38pm scratchbomb:

is this a response to the Nazi-heavy content of The best Show?
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:42pm AZ:

Hmmm..."Pioneers Who Got Scalped" features liner notes by...uh...someone I'm rather well acquainted with...
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:43pm A:

Did VH steal this riff for "Why Can't This Be Love"?
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:44pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

where's the NYCTV clip of WFMU again... !!
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:44pm A:

Or is it tinfoil-hat time when you do the Devo-Van Halen connection?
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:45pm M. Mouse:

I see what you mean now, Your Majesty. My condolences.

Cool show, as usual...
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:45pm efd:

AZ - ha! that's quite a coincidence!

As is the Nazi content of the EWITFR...N song - but it works!

Cathy, I haven't watched the Simpsons in years, never got into Family Guy. I'm pretty sure you've asked me that question before.
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:46pm Paolo:

Man, I bought the Neon Indian lp a month or so ago, and I still haven't listened to it. I should get to it
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:47pm Michael from the Left Coast:

So this is what Neon Indian sounds like--pretty good, like a less hyperactive more tuneful Daft Punk
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:48pm stingy d:

why i'm so busy all the time? wdup funk meister davies
  Tue. 1/26/10 11:50pm stingy d:

  Wed. 1/27/10 12:12am Danne D:

Holy Crap - Stingy has managed to cross-pollenate his twitter feed with Evan's comments board!!!!

As for myself, I have once again overcome my sheer jealousy of EFD to partake in listening to his show once again :) You know how you always say 'remember the good times?' Well, folks, this is the good times. Just about every Tuesday night about this time!
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:13am Joe:

Literally having a Purling Hiss dance party.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:14am cathy lane:

king evan i hope you NEVER leave wfmu!!! we women love you..
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:16am efd:

cathy lane, define "women."
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:18am Danne D:

Why do I feel like a video of a meeting* b/w Evan and Cathy/Toni/etc would make the most popular premium in the history of FMU?

*- heavily supervised of course - remember that episode where Ken and Andy played around with the taser?
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:20am cathy lane:

toni d.cissy d.rachel jansen & the rest of us king evan
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:21am john:

Actually, it'd be super cool if Evan could see his way clear to bringing a taser to that meeting.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:22am efd:

Danne, don't give anyone any ideas!

Glad you all are enjoying the Purling Hiss - it was a lifesaver for tonight's very busy MTO, that's for sure!
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:23am a dude:

never heard purling hiss before, but that song ruled
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:25am Doctor Demento:

Cathy would be good as a 2:19 novelty 45 on my show. And that's it. In and out.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:25am Joshua K:

I was totally rocking out in my car to that DEVO song on my way to work.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:26am Danne D:

"The Silence of the Jam" starving Evan Funk Davies? At least I can totally see plexiglass involved in said meeting.

Btw excellent show as always Evan - enough to soothe even the most savage listener :)
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:26am cathy l.:

well king evan i have a busy day 2morrow,,thnx again for your company g'nite,, hail king evan!!!=)=)
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:27am efd:

Joshua, may I ask what kind of work you do? Always curious about folks working the late shift...
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:28am efd:

sorry for keeping you, Cathy - have a good night.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:30am Joshua K:

Web hosting with 24/7 support, and im the poor soul with the midnight shift keeping all the guys in Asia and Europe happy.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:31am Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--where aer the RPM's from? I tend to think I would have seen them had they been in NY then, but somehow I never saw these guys.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:31am Danne D:

Imagines callers from India complaining that they can't understand Joshua...
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:34am Duly Impressed:

That Cathy is a real freight train. Nothing but nothing slows it down one little bit. Implacable. The pentagon should set up a program to clone and weaponize her.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:37am errr:

Milwaulkie Wisconsin
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:37am Alicia Renee:

the RPMs were from Milwaukee
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:38am Listerer Pete:


From the Sing Sing site on the RPM's

The RPM'S, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, began as a cover band playing with pickup drummers at local bars. An impromtu practice at Jill Kossoris' (Shivvers) house and the introduction of her friend, drummer Rob Mccuen took the band out of the cover circuit and focused their talents on writing original material. The bands only 45 was released in November of 1980 and ranks as one of the best two siders to emerge from the incredible Milwaukee music scene of the 1980's. The single was released in a run of 500 copies on the bands own Hit-Man records and is highly sought after today as both cuts are flawless powerpop tunes.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:40am efd:

thanks everyone! I have the best listeners.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:42am efd:

thanks for indulging me, Josh - hope it's a quiet night.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:43am Danne D:

Couldn't find the rpms 45 on e-bay (um the name rpms tends to make that difficult). I did find this however, which might interest baseball-fan Evan :)

"45 RPM Record MILWAUKEE HOME OF THE BRAVES" b/w "Pizza Polka" by Charles Magnante His Accordion Orchesta and Singers

  Wed. 1/27/10 12:46am Danne D:

Evan's show seems to inspire the best random internet walks I take. Apparently Charles Magnante was 'often considered the greatest accordianist of his era'.

I would have never known this :)
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:48am efd:

Glad I could be the catalyst for accordion knowledge, Danne!

The funny thing about the RPMs being from Milwaukee is that I was going to say that's where they were from, but I thought I was getting them mixed up with The Orbits - who are also from Milwaukee, and just had a single re-issued on Sing Sing.
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:52am Danne D:

Mr. Magnante does have videos on youtube even - albeit I couldn't find the song in question.

Was figuring if I could see what that RPMs record was selling for :) Figured Toni could send it to you as a present :)
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:55am john:

Anderson Council may be the ultimate Rock Nerd™ band name. Awesome track, too!
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:56am Listener Pete:

Hey EFD:

Just was on the Bare Wires page. Saw that they will be in New York and Brooklyn on April 2 & 3. Thank goodness they're coming to Chicago as well on April 9
  Wed. 1/27/10 12:59am Doc:

Yeahhh..Listening to your show on our weekly game night. Wouldn't be tuesday without it
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:00am Al Goldstein:

Whaddya mean, "let's not get too hard"
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:00am esch oder anarchie!:

OMG was just listening to your last week show on archive and then realized i was missing hearing your show live - like a bad-good outcome in a time travel movie - should i remain happy in doomed past or risk uncertainty of future-as-now?
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:00am Danne D:

Heh - still haven't found the original of the RPMs but here's a pic of the sleeve:
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:01am Michael from the Left Coast:

That''s Taylor Negron-- pronounced Nay-gron with a short o, like Chuck Negron of Three Dog Night (although no relation)
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:01am Joe:

If mick jagger were a chick, the rolling stones would be the nouvellas
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:04am john:

  Wed. 1/27/10 1:05am efd:

whoa! Pete, thanks for the Bare Wires tip! I'll contact them at once about trying to get them down to the station.

john - you are correct!
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:06am Michael from the Left Coast:

This reminds me of Nick Gilder
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:07am efd:

john, my comment was about the Anderson Council's name, but it also applies to "if?" :)
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:07am Danne D:

Well to put a capper on the saga of what the Hit-man version of the RPMs single costs. Looks like this guy wanted $250 http://kenizn.exblog.jp/9301744/

Thus ends my random internet quest (though it looks like I stumbled on a powerpop blog or three and may send evan a couple links in case they somehow evaded his radar.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:17am efd:

your dedication and persistence is admirable, Danne.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:20am Danne D:

lol I try EFD :)
So is there going to be a baseball league II?
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:25am efd:

heck yes! at least i hope so, if I can get a quorum.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:28am john:

I'm in!

And re: the last song, although I have no idea what the lyrics said, http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Zu_nU3A_B1c/SVSqie9hV8I/AAAAAAAAB30/kYvw3ixY9iM/s400/GoyaSLC.jpg

I'd sing about her too.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:28am Danne D:

Well toni, et al could possibly make up a whole league of their own :)

I have a good team name to send to Aharon
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:30am Joe:

You know who's great? the Sanford-Towsend band.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:31am AZ:

Wow--from Purling Hiss to the Sanford-Townsend Band in one show! (That was also the first and probably last time those two acts will ever be mentioned in a single sentence.)
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:31am Danne D:

*bows down again to EFD*
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:33am efd:

don't let the screen door hit ya...

... on your way out!
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:35am Indiana Jordan:

There are no words to describe the awesome that is Del.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:41am esch oder anarchie!:

It would be spelled Rheinstahl.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:42am Michael from the Left Coast:

I like Rhineshtall!
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:42am Joe:

There is a word. It's funky-faba-tabulous.
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:50am osvi:

Killing it, EFD! Providing the soundtrack to some impromptu midweek drinking...
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:54am efd:

thanks osvi, and all! stick around for Marty McS!
  Wed. 1/27/10 1:57am Danne D:

Thank you for all you do EFD!
And good night Funk Fans :)
