  Wed. 9/22/10 9:09pm Amanda:

Feel like I have heard their ELO cover before and loved it before. But how can I have? I must have dreamed it.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:14pm cheri:

evan could you play some polly brown for me,,if you could i'll be forever in your debt,,thnx evan
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:16pm Joe:

These guys obviously don't know the Bob Seger "only if followed by the word "system"" rule.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:18pm Amanda:

No idea that Bob Seger was oppressed, btw.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:19pm efd:

hi everyone! A little frantic at the moment but happy to see you all this evening.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:20pm wicked witch of the west:

efd, stay clear of the window if you don't want to hitch a ride with me.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:25pm cheri:

evan have you any idea if you'll be on the fall/spring schedule yet??
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:27pm john:

Hey Evan! Wow, that Baskervilles track was great. Not sure how I missed it first time round.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:30pm Joe:

SLA/Dirtbombs connection = mind = blown.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:31pm cheri:

efd-- no polly brown tonite??
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:33pm ljjp:

  Wed. 9/22/10 9:34pm ljp:

Not ljjp. Not llcoolj.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:38pm cheri:

evan,, i hope to god you'll be back on the schedule,,,but in the mean time PLEASE play some polly brown,,
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:40pm AZ:

Evan, do we need to start bombarding the powers that be with expressions of our fanatical devotion to your program?
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:45pm efd:

I hope not! It's going to be announced a little later than originally planned... at this point such outpourings wouldn't have an affect anyway, I don't think. But I appreciate the thought!

Cheri, thanks for the support but it doesn't look good for Polly Brown tonight.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:45pm Joe:

great pick Davies - true classic from Jean Grae
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:49pm bauchner:

What is EFD's bed music?
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:50pm JMD:

Dang, that Brought Low was rockin'! Thanks EFD, you always know how to brought the rock.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:52pm Joe:

a loop from "Saturday Night Fever" by the Lordz of Brooklyn - sampled from "American Woman" by the Guess Who.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:52pm efd:

Joe D, don't let me down.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:52pm efd:

... and, you did not.
  Wed. 9/22/10 9:54pm bauchner:

! Awesome, thanks Joe D and EFD!!
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:05pm Danne D:

Hi there Funk Fans.

  Wed. 9/22/10 10:05pm cheri:

evan i want your opinoin---do you think i've matured since i droped my phoney personas?? also keep on rocking!!!!!
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:11pm PB from SI:

E"F"D, you make being stuck at work at 10 pm much more tolerable.

Now if you could just swing by my apartment in Staten Island after your show and shut the windows I left open so the rain doesn't get in, you'd really make my night.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:12pm Danne D:

ah, PB, I think cheri's already tried that one to trap Evan :)

I'm still sad over my playoff loss last week 8(
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:16pm Danne D:

Night People totally ripping off Beastin' the Airwaves on that one...
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:19pm Amanda:

  Wed. 9/22/10 10:20pm Danne D:

Hi Amanda :D
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:21pm efd:

"ripping off" sounds pretty harsh, Danne.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:24pm Danne D:



  Wed. 9/22/10 10:25pm Danne D:

I'm still crabby from my loss to the Guns of Broxton :(

Now I have to beat up Aharon in the people's championship (also called the 3rd place match).

Guns' are taking on some Evan guy...
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:25pm efd:

My point is just because one show did something doesn't mean another show wouldn't also have the same idea on their own.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:26pm john:

Gosh Danne, does that mean I won the dogs' championship last week for 5th?
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:26pm Joe:

the people's championship... the Joe Belock memorial Trophy?
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:27pm cheri:

well evan i'm heading out now have a terrific vacay,,,and i hope i'll see you again very soon, g'nite
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:27pm Joe:

wait, not memorial - that man is ALIVE
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:27pm efd:

re fantasy baseball, funny how my genius moves from last week are having the exact opposite effect this week.

It's like John Sterling always says, you can't predict baseball!
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:30pm john:

And my idiot moves from two weeks ago led to an 11-1 rout in the 5th place match after four days of slumps against efd!
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:30pm PB from SI:

Danne D, how do you think I feel? I was eliminated from the "consolation bracket" from a tie last week. A TIE! That's like kissing your sister, then getting punched in the ear by your cousin.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:34pm Danne D:

lol PB :)

Last week was interesting for me as I totally started throwing stuff up to the ceiling hoping it would stick. I mean I pitched Jeremy Bonderman for crying out loud. Kinda hard to win when all of your opponents pitchers seem to be throwing 2 hitters...and then it gets to his GOOD pitchers...
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:34pm john:

Never realized the phrase "killed by ants" could sound so much like "Joan Baez," but there it is.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:35pm efd:

oooh, I was wondering what happened if there was a tie. Sorry you found out the hard way, PB. (And thanks for the nice comment earlier)
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:35pm Danne D:

Joan Baez getting killed by ants is one of the signs of the apocalypse, no?
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:36pm Danne D:

ties go to the team that won the season series between the teams, efd. It was actually the one area I was pretty well set up in for the playoffs.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:37pm Danne D:

Okay so this has nothing to do with nothing but are these really the best toys of 2010? I mean this picture seems borderline obscene...

  Wed. 9/22/10 10:40pm john:

No, Danne, that'd be a sign that there is a just God.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:41pm Joe:

I could drink a case of... ants.

No, wait, that's Joni Mitchell.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:43pm Danne D:

*wonders when the Evan Funk Davies Winterball Fantasy Baseball League will be starting up*
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:44pm carmen:

ugh i love this song!! thanks fer playing it!
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:45pm john:

Puerto Rico or Arizona Instructional League? Either way, I'm in, but I want Lucas Duda.
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:45pm PB from SI:

I just realized that E"F"D has been on at this time for a full cycle of the schedule and still hasn't renamed "Midnight Ticket Oasis."
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:48pm Danne D:

Sure he has - it's now know as "The Segment Formerly Known As Midnight Ticket Oasis"

Oh back to the Night People thing for a moment - I know that multiple shows will use the same idea, I just had to stick up for Keili anyhow :) Hope she's back gracing our radios again soon.

On another aside - anybody else check out "Boardwalk Empire"?
  Wed. 9/22/10 10:50pm boogie:

  Wed. 9/22/10 10:59pm Danne D:

We all the truth you are a Rush-head Evan:

Exhibit A: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/31969
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:00pm Danne D:

Exhibit B: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/12436
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:01pm john:

Funny, I'd never thought of bathroom break songs as ones that would make the listeners run to the nearest facility.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:01pm AZ:

I had exactly the same experience with "Beyond the Lighted Stage." It's hard to imagine a more interesting film about a band whose music I have no interest in whatsoever.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:02pm Danne D:

EFD Playlist scorecard:

Rush 3

Beatles 0

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:05pm Danne D:

Have you ever tried to put your camel to bed?

They are kinda ornery
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:06pm PB from SI:

I suppose "The Ticket Giveaway Segment Formerly Known As Midnight Ticket Oasis" is practical because it works at any time.

Kind of like how potheads say "It's 4:20 somewhere!" (Except it's not, unless it's 20 after at the time.)

Speaking of pot, I'm pretty sure the WMMS DJ's "bathroom break" was code for something else.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:07pm Danne D:

New Jersey Knuckles would be a good roller derby team name.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:09pm me:

The Vibrators show at the Bell House is also with The Waldos, 45 Adapters, and DJ Mr. Lee.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:09pm Danne D:

For the other confused disorganized folks like me:
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:10pm Camel:

Stub out the cigarette before my feet catch fire, plz.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:10pm spUd:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:12pm sPUDs:


  Wed. 9/22/10 11:12pm Danne D:

also if it's 8:50 here then it's 4:20 in Teheran

(really they do some weird 1/2-hour off time zone deal
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:13pm Camel:

No bogarding. Puff, pass.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:14pm spuds:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:16pm spuds:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:18pm Danne D:

spuds totally ripping off my fantasy baseball team with that Knuckles reference

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:19pm PB from SI:

I feel like having to read Spud's all caps typing is karmic payback for me. E"F"D knows why.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:21pm Joe:

this guy's voice sounds exactly like another emcee and I can't think who it is and it's driving me up the wall.

great song though.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:21pm spuds:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:22pm efd:

settle down there, Spuds.

Joe, you're thinking of Junk Science, I bet.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:22pm Spud's Keyboard:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:23pm spuds:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:24pm spuds:

  Wed. 9/22/10 11:24pm Joe:

You know, he definitely does sound like Junk Science, and the white guy from Foreign Legion. And -somebody- else.

I'm gonna download the mixtape and figure it out.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:27pm efd:

oh, you were talking about Adam WarRock - yeah, he totally sounds like Prozack Turner, I think. I thought you were talking about this Tone Tank/Scott Thorough cut.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:27pm Joe:

Tone Tank is one of my new favorite rappers. He's such a galoot. Really makes me realize I've been listening to too much music made by people with college degrees.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:29pm Joe:

also, anyone who thinks hip-hop is dead needs to watch this music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2fhExmGpwg
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:29pm blacktooth:

Yes! Rock out to Paul Carey! An excellent human and musician from Chicago. Seek him out and worship his rusty old soul.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:30pm Danne D:

That may be the first time I've ever seen a rapper referred to as a galoot :) It might be the first time anybody has seen that :)
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:30pm GOB:

Danne D - It was one hell of a battle we had last week. I had some good luck with the pitchers. It's been a fun league.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:30pm PB from SI:

Am I bananas or did that Tone Tank track sample/co-opt the intro to Black Flag's "Six Pack?"
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:32pm Danne D:

Yeah, congrats GOB - you have a great team.
Careful - Evan might leave a horse's head in your bed and those of your pitchers though!

Cool link, btw, Joe.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:34pm Joe:

yeah it's great. Normally I'd be pissed at the John Lennon blasphemy, but it's too awesome to be mad at.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:38pm GOB:

To other baseball (and comedy) fans out there this post at deadspin today is pretty hilarious and disturbing. http://deadspin.com/5644328/is-this-normal?skyline=true&s=i
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:40pm efd:

GoB, I'm going to email you after the show about something going on next week.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:40pm efd:

(and no, it's not a trap)
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:41pm Spoony:

I would snap the Telos phone bank in half as protest if this was your last show. I don't know what that would accomplish, but I'm running out of things to smash by that phone.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:42pm Danne D:

I'd come heavily armed if I were you, GOB.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:42pm GOB:

sounds good. i'll be sure to run a virus checker before i open that e-mail.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:46pm Danne D:

LOL at that article GOB! Still working through but definitely worth the read. Bonus points for the obscure Giuliani reference.
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:49pm john:

It is a great article. And sadly, the answer to the question "Is this normal?" is a resounding but resigned "yeah."
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:55pm GOB:

I dunno man, I find it hard to believe there is any normalcy for a guy to be cruising around a clubhouse in the buff of the team that he played for 30 years ago. Yeah he won two world series titles for them but does that mean Varitek is going to be walking around the Sox clubhouse naked 25 years from now?
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:56pm john:

Oh come on, give future generations something to look forward to, willya?
  Wed. 9/22/10 11:59pm Danne D:

GOB, Evan does that around the station all the time. Just sayin'

Btw, here's a cool article: the 40 best teams ever to not make the MLB playoffs
  Thu. 9/23/10 12:00am Danne D:

Good night Funk Friends!

Good night Evan! Have a great vacation :)

Good luck in your battle with EFD, GOB - you're gonna need it after his ruffians get a hold of you.
