Listener comments!

  Tue. 3/9/10 11:26pm Golden Sours:

Every time I try to lay my head down to go to sleep, EFD's brings the high energy that gets me shaking and strutting in my jammies. Damn you solid gold soul, DAVIES!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:30pm minnesota jeff:

No reason to sleep, its EFD time!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:30pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fanatics!
Now is the time to call in at 800-989-9368 and give your love and money to Evan Funk Davies!
Ladies - you have to come to back or your dreamboat
Gentlemen - you have to step it up for the man we all wish we could be

Evan is as good as it gets. He works hard bringing all this great radio to you. So call that number or pledge on line at www.wfmu.org (or just look above and to the left at the handy insta-pledge thingy)

Go forth now!!!!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:30pm Sybil:

Tavares... how bittersweet! < weeps silently >

Must go pledge now!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:31pm Danne D:

Ugh I'm a bit punchy after Tom's show.
That should read:

Ladies - you have to come to BAT FOR your dreamboat.

Which you do :)
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:32pm Danne D:

Yay Sybil :)
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:32pm minnesota jeff:

What happened with the Isles tonight, Sybil?
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:34pm Hatch:

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeedge people.
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:37pm osvi:

WFMU: the investment that yields infinite gains!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:39pm minnesota jeff:

Laurie from Chapel Hill is answering phones ... in the loudest room in the world!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:41pm Danne D:

So EFD, if our favorite message board personae put up the $1000 tonight would you rotate the name between all her alter egos? :)
My joking aside, this is a primo opportunity for someone to show their true blue support for WFMU all year long. Totally worth the $1k if you have the cash, kids!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:42pm anemone:

Squeak like a pig!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:42pm Danne D:

Woohoo Laurie!!!
Evan brought out the big guns or week two!
(and of course I had my usual bad timing in being in the phone room just for week 1) *sigh*. But call in and talk FMU's favorite grad student or one of the other fine dignitaries in the phone room :)
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:48pm Danne D:

Um, what if someone's name is Ivory Soap? :)
Alas, I did not hit megamillions tonight so it won't be me :(
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:50pm anemone:

I love this song. David Kilgour can do no wring.
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:52pm minnesota jeff:

EFD - So you have classic Radio Jingles spliced in with the tracks on your Premium?
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:52pm Matt:

Hello Evan, seems like you have a great show. this is my first time tuning in (via internet) even though I live in Astoria. I am a music publicist/obsessive and have so much music to listen to in so many formats, but this show seems to be really great. Keep it up! I am about to give you some money.
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:52pm Sybil:

I feel that urge coming on again... Tell me you feel it too! Matt is feeling it and he just got here!
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:54pm Danne D:

Thanks Matt! Evan's show is absolutely excellent. (There's about 10 years of archives on the website, too, btw, Matt). :)
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:56pm minnesota jeff:

EFD - That song is great, I really really liked it.
  Tue. 3/9/10 11:57pm AZ:

LJP commends your seamless segue from the jingle into "Pilot of the Airwaves"; "he's blowing my mind!"
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:00am Danne D:

All kinds of Dans are pledging tonight :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:04am Aharon:

Getting a CD is well worth having my name mispronounced!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:08am AZ:

The long show title is charming, but probably cumbersome over the long haul. "The Evan 'Funk' Davies Show" has such a nice ring to it that we'd feel guilty about cluttering it up!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:09am Matt:

Did all those pledges you just read come in since you came on the air? If so, that's insane...
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:10am anemone:

Thanks EFD, for turning me on to Thomas Function!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:16am Aharon:

I'm confident--CONFIDENT--that there's a festering hedge funder out there who's sick and tired of getting mistaken for that radio hippie. Evan "Junk" Davies of Midnight Oasis Capital LLC, this is your moment! A giant pledge is the perfect revenge!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:17am Danne D:

lol Aharon :)

Glad to see some more board regulars on. Hopefully all are pledging :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:19am Aharon:

"Regulars." Oh the irony.
Glad to see you on here as well. I pledged! I exhorted others to! The marathon makes me so nervous.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:20am john:

Nope, never made a film in my life, except for a misguided 9th grade art project, long since burnt. More of a fan of Easy Reader, myself.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:21am AZ:

Shameful Electric Company confessions: 1) I had a childhood crush on Judy Graubart. 2) I think I was in college before I realized that "Fargo North, Decoder" was a pun.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:21am john:

You're welcome anyway.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:22am Matt:

I can only imagine how entertaining this program is when you are not begging for money. Thanks for the acknowledgment. I would never have imagined there were so many others in Astoria listening to WFMU! I need to start a WFMU Evan "Funk" Davies Astoria, NY Listeners Facebook group. Or not.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:24am minnesota jeff:

There is not much funny about Fargo, North Dakota
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:24am Aharon:

Actually, Matt, isn't pretty much Danish current events talk when they aren't doing the marathon.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:25am minnesota jeff:

Its my preferred way to keep with Dutch News.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:26am AZ:

"Bustin' Out!" The greatest!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:26am Matt:

Aharon, huh?
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:27am Danne D:

While they are kidding, Matt, you WILL hear Dutch music on at least one show on FMU I am sure :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:28am Danne D:

I assure you, Matt, that Evan brings the Funk week in and week out with very few weeks off every Tuesday night :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:30am Joshua K:

I got twitter hacked again. Of all the nerve. This time I am using a big long secure password with random characters.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:30am Danne D:

Poor Laurie had to put up with me changing my comment like 3 different times. Pledge pledge pledge!

Oh if Joe Steele is reading this, you can take a keychain from the phone room too if you want :) Actually might make one special for Hatch in honor of his premium i he wants.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:31am Aharon:

Isn't Golden Earring Dutch? And also Bettie Serveert? I've heard both on FMU this last week.
Oh god, now my nonsense topic has taken on a life of its own (sort of).
But I was talking Danish. Only one that comes to mind is Junior/Senior.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:31am Danne D:

No Amanda on the comment board tonight :(
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:33am Sybil:

And the ever-popular Nederglam. A word I'm still dying to work into a conversation someday.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:33am minnesota jeff:

Burt Blyleven is my favorite Dutchman.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:34am Danne D:

I think you just did, Sybil :)

C'mon guys you have to pledge and get this great premium! I'm excited to know that I'm going to get it when the swag fairy arrives later this year! :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:36am john:

Bert Blyleven is everyone's favorite Dutchman. Certainly the only one I know of who wore a t-shirt full of holes and the legend "Who Farted?" on it.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:36am minnesota jeff:

I am excited to get this too, especially now that I have heard that Charlie Dore song.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:36am Aharon:

And a good night to all. Great show tonight, EFD.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:38am minnesota jeff:

john - Burt got suspended for two games broadcasting locally for the Twins because he dropped two f-bombs in one sentence.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:38am Danne D:

Night Aharon!

  Wed. 3/10/10 12:41am Chuck from Prescott:

Locals pronounce it Pres-kitt.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:43am Matt:

Patton Oswalt is the MAN!!! I love his bit on KFC bowls!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:46am Danne D:

So you're in good shape, Evan!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:47am minnesota jeff:

"Knee deep in the mocha" - Guhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:47am Danne D:

Btw there is also one or fewer people with my name in the US.

I have the premium from FMU that had this song on it, btw.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:48am Joe in the phone room:

Please pledge. We can't turn this off like you can.

  Wed. 3/10/10 12:48am Danne D:

It's awesome how they try to cram in names of divisions that just don't really fit into a song. But seriously folks pledge right now and bring back the Funk. PLEASE!
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:49am Matt:

How can I get this song?
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:50am Hatch:

You don't want this song, Matt. You really don't.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:50am john:

Jeff, heard about that--really sorry I missed that game. But @#$%, if you're going to swear on a live mic, may as well do it more than once.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:50am Elwyn:

This song is horrible... yet I can't stop listening to the trainwreck that it is.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:50am minnesota jeff:

EFD - Do you have Irwins premium from the last marathon? The "Asera Everywhere" song would be perfect to follow this.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:51am Danne D:

Matt, I believe that this was on a premium that Ken put out about 3 years ago called "The Happy Listener's Guide To Mind Control, Volume 2". It might be available as a prize warehouse item if you pledge $365.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:52am Matt:

http://www.spike.com/video/we-built-this/2730057 - thanks internets
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:54am chuck from prescott:

Autograph rules.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:55am Danne D:

alas that premium isn't available as a warehouse item.

However other awesome premiums from the past are for those who can afford to make a mouse pledge!

For example you can get Hatch's 2008 premium: Roses and Rainbows :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:55am efd:

chuck, you are a man of fine musical taste and excellent pronunciation skills.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:58am Joshua K:

All we need is someone to make one $81,000 pledge and we can beat Tom's record. Do all your kids need to college? There has to be one that doesn't deserve it.
  Wed. 3/10/10 12:58am Danne D:

  Wed. 3/10/10 12:58am Chuck from Prescott:

Thank you, efd. a certain part of me wants this song to go on forever.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:00am Chuck from Prescott:

(the autograph song, that is.)
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:04am Danne D:

I'm1/4 Welsh :)
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:09am minnesota jeff:

ECSP is so damn good.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:12am Ike:

The current rumors about me are wildly exaggerated. First off, I did NOT smear honey all over Hatch's body and then attempt to sacrifice him to the radio gods to bring in more pledges. Sure, he's cute, but that just wouldn't work according to my copy of the Necroradiocon.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:12am Matt:

Ok I'm going to sleep. btw I am @fullyaltered on Twitter. back next week or sooner.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:15am efd:

thanks Matt, and welcome!
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:18am Ike:

And THEN y'all accuse me, behind my BACK, of smearing honey on cute FMU DJs (it was only *one* spoonful -- is that a CRIME?!?), and you send invisible Jethro-Tull-loving CIA operatives after me! You passive-aggressive gabby goobers! Anyway, hope the 'thon picks up. Good luck. I'll be listening.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:19am minnesota jeff:

Ike from Brick City is losing his mind it seems.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:22am randy in NC:

Just curious, is there a trick to get the pledge map to work? I just says "Loading...please wait".
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:25am Ike of Brick City:

Jeff, it all makes sense if you have the secret gabby decoder ring.

Love to all y'all. PLEDGE NOW HIPPIES!
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:29am Joshua K:

I'm wearin my NJIT t-shirt today. Brick City represent.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:34am minnesota jeff:

Well that was a weird lyric.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:37am minnesota jeff:

  Wed. 3/10/10 1:40am Elwyn:

Shouldn't this song be called something like "Ray D-O Wal of Sownd? Slade and correct spelling don't mix.
  Wed. 3/10/10 1:49am Danne D:

C'mon folks - pony up for those prizes!
  Wed. 3/10/10 2:02am Danne D:

Keep pledging folks!
Keep Joe Steele and Laurie working!
Great show Evan and great job Hatch :)
Goodnight Funk Fans!
