  Wed. 9/15/10 9:16pm efd:

Hi Parq! Nope, only one "L" in "Poly Styrene" - the CD confirms it.

Stingy, I appreciate you trading Charlie Bronson for my humble show.

Zelda, great to have you listening in Berlin - glad you enjoyed that tune!

Cheri, I can't believe you're still asking that question a week later. I think it's time to move on.
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:19pm Amanda:

Abba is another one of those things, along with country music and industrial, that my family wishes I didn't like.
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:24pm stingy d:

  Wed. 9/15/10 9:31pm Garrett:

I only knew about Aphrodite's Child song from a song of theirs ("Rain & Tears") used in the movie "Three Times." Both are good!
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:33pm Amanda:

It was *years* before I found out about blah blah blah
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:36pm Opie:

Hey, what's all this I hear about blah blah blah?
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:41pm john:

Hey Evan!

I wasn't paying a lot of attention just now, and it really sounded like the bongos were singing "in a condo."
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:43pm efd:

well yes, that was the remake that they recorded during the Hoboken construction boom.
  Wed. 9/15/10 9:49pm stingy d:

damion bagley steps to the plate
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:02pm stingy d:

  Wed. 9/15/10 10:02pm efd:

  Wed. 9/15/10 10:06pm stingy d:

  Wed. 9/15/10 10:16pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Folks :)
Hey it's stingy d!

Hey John, Opie, Amanda, Garrett, cheri and everyone :)
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:17pm efd:

you know, I thought it was pronounced like "can," but I thought I heard him say it the other way in the song. Must have been something else. Oh well...
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:18pm Two Sheds:

Texiera has worked a walk with 2 outs. He was 0-2 earlier in the AB. Still 4-3 Rays. (Accounts & descriptions made up.)
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:18pm Danne D:

Right now I'm getting whacked in the EFDHHDYDTY Fantasy Baseball League semi-finals pretty good :( I'm down 7-2. Either way next week it's a showdown between me and a big rival (either Aharon and his Long Bawls or the mighty EFD's Bernie Carbo Loaders). Though it'll probably be for 3rd place :(
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:19pm Two Sheds:

A-Rod struck out. It's over!
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:19pm john:

Rays 4, Junkees 3.

And wow, these guys sound like Talulah Gosh.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:20pm R I S K Y:


  Wed. 9/15/10 10:20pm efd:

whoo! thanks for the updates!

And yeah, it's a fight to the death between Aharon and me this week in the fantasy league,
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:21pm Steve:

...and for the record, Mets and Red Sox won. That's all she wrote. -s
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:21pm efd:

R I S K Y !!
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:21pm cheri:

just one last thing evan,,,i hope you'll back on in the fall-spring schedule..
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:25pm efd:

thanks Cheri, I hope so too!
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:27pm Danne D:

My mighty combo of Blanton and Lannon both came through with wins so far. Of course he's got guys pitching complete games and giving up 1 hit every 5 innings....
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:28pm stingy d:

can you not only come back this fall, but take the friday slot that billy jam has and push him to overnight on sunday?
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:31pm Amanda:

Hurrah! A favorite REM jam of mine.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:32pm Danne D:

But stingy, Evan's what gets many of us over the hump during the week.

I agree Amanda - this is a great jam :)
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:32pm john:

People always sort of looked at me funny when I said Fables was my fave REM album. But I mean, for gosh sakes, Kohoutek?
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:32pm dave:

i know how trite it is to say it at this point, but what HAPPENED to the amazingly great band REM was?
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:33pm john:

Three words, Dave: Mandatory Retirement Age.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:34pm VY:

that sounded sort of "jangley"
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:34pm Danne D:

I dunno man, Mike Mills was playing great when I saw him play a couple weeks ago with The Baseball Project
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:35pm dave:

totally coinidentally, i had kohoutek stuck in my head earlier today.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:36pm Amanda:

I actually first heard Driver 8 on "Eponymous" which was their big anthology that came out right before I think Green? And then I bought Fables. Love Can't Get There From Here also. I am way into the jangley.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:38pm john:

Danne, that's different. It's The Baseball Project!

Kohoutek gets stuck in my head more than any other REM song.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:39pm VY:

Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcast use Driver 8 guitar line for bumper music
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:42pm JT:

I once heard a reel-to-reel of REM playing The Tighten Up.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:43pm Danne D:

I totally agree John, but it was more directed at the Mandatory Retirement Age comment.

This is a great song right now btw :)
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:44pm john:

If REM had been forced to hang it up ten years ago, they'd have saved us all a whole bunch o' suck.
  Wed. 9/15/10 10:46pm Danne D:

lol - well John, the thing is at some point you should just retire them from your ipod/cd collection :)
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:01pm Skirkie:

Yes I think it was that Never Mine track I heard in the car while taking some convoluted detour through Rutherford to avoid Route 3 traffic.
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:02pm chickenwing:

Right On Brotha!
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:02pm VY:

is there any song that refers to 11 o'clock?
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:06pm Danne D:

This? :

  Wed. 9/15/10 11:06pm Danne D:

11 O'clock Tix Tock?
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:08pm Holly:

Heartily enjoying, thank you!
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:09pm VY:

omg, i forgetted that one. yeah, tick/tickets... how's efd's brogue?
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:09pm john:

Clever, Danne! Only problem is that then we'd have to hear U2 every week, and some of us have weak digestions.
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:11pm VY:

it's been years... isn't that instumentalishy?
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:12pm Danne D:

Hence the ? at the end of my statement John :)
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:13pm Danne D:

Well there's also this....


  Wed. 9/15/10 11:14pm coalhard:

rejoice ---no corporate lable on playlist i guess except atlantic but acceptable for now
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:15pm VY:

is U2 any worse than Maria Muldaur?
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:16pm fromage:

ohh, my favorite OMD song! nice.
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:17pm Danne D:

Hey it's coalhard! How you doing?

Anyhow, here's another possibility:


a song called "11th Hour Breakdown" by Beyond the Implode
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:17pm Danne D:

Blondie did a song called 11:59, but that wouldn't seem to do much to solve the dilemma...
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:19pm Danne D:

Getting closer, here's a song called 11:52pm by VVV
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:19pm Danne D:

Here's one called 11:04

But it might be 11 minutes and 4 seconds long...
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:20pm Danne D:

Here's one that might be a good candidate, but would require a time change: 10 o'clock by ? and the Mysterians

  Wed. 9/15/10 11:22pm Danne D:

But enough playlist searching on the numbers 10 and 11 for me...
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:23pm VY:

"but these (tickets) go (at) 11." - Spinal Tap
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:28pm efd:

ok, I'm back and will need to do my usual post-show catch-up on the comments that were made during the TGSFKATMTO. I appreciate the suggestions that I've skimmed across so far!
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:30pm VY:

flight attendant outfit, please
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:31pm Danne D:

The Who's 905 would also seem to be a bit on the inconvenient time side.
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:32pm john:

As would be The Millennium's 5 AM, though it's a beautiful song and would imply at least an eight-hour EFD extravaganza!
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:35pm cordesc:

sunnyside vs. astoria...
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:39pm john:

Definitely one of the twenty best Flamin' Groovies covers of 2010.
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:40pm VY:

The Girls was sweet - will check CBC Sat sure
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:46pm Danne D:

Time to pack up from the Starbucks. Have a good night everyone! Good night and good luck Evan. Maybe see you in the championship next week! :D
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:47pm efd:

ha, I hope so Danne! Thanks for stopping by.

VY, yeah, should be a good set!
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:50pm coalhard:

  Wed. 9/15/10 11:55pm efd:

Alright! And on that note, goodnight everyone, and thanks very much for listening, commenting, and/or lurking!
  Wed. 9/15/10 11:56pm coalhard:

  Thu. 9/16/10 12:00am Kent Downing:

Thanks for playing that old Bangles tune. The entire show was excellent
  Thu. 9/16/10 12:02am captain queefheart:

would love to hear some Syllable Section, guys are the best psychedelic group out of Chicago
  Thu. 9/16/10 1:00am Joe:

great show. Yes I was lurking. I HAVE THAT GIRLS AT DAWN 45. GO ME
  Fri. 9/17/10 12:16am molly:

what was the background music for this show? hope it's not too late for a response.
  Fri. 9/17/10 1:11pm efd:

Oh, it's never too late for a response! The background music is a loop of "Saturday Night Fever" by Lordz Of Brooklyn, from 1993 or so. (And, as you probably noticed, "Saturday Night Fever" itself loops a sample from "American Woman" by the Guess Who.)

Thanks for listening!
