Listener comments!

  Wed. 10/6/10 9:04pm Joe:

Six hours of power starts now!

It's really 9 hours but I can't stay up that late.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:15pm efd:

Hey, Joe! Yeah, my excitement of being followed by Noah is only tempered by my disappointment that Night People isn't on this schedule.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:16pm KM:

first time listening to your show and I love it already
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:17pm AZ:

This Frankie Smith record sounds EXACTLY how I expected it to sound.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:19pm efd:

AZ, yes!! Same for me!

Apparently he was a pretty decent yo-yo-ist(?) in real life.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:20pm Joe:

Yes, hopefully we will not have to pass too many nights without The People.

This has gotta be the single longest song about yo-yos ever.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:20pm efd:

KM, thanks! Appreciate you listening and commenting.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:21pm Skirkie:

Casey Kasem? Zoinks!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:22pm john:

hey Evan! Go Twins! Just saying.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:22pm efd:

That's just the tip of the AT40 iceberg, Skirkie!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:23pm efd:

What's the score, John??
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:23pm dan from toronto:

Is anyone else as reminded as I am by that guitar tag line of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'"? Or have I been listening to it too much lately?
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:24pm Skirkie:

Hey so how bout that Harry Leroy Halladay III?
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:26pm cheri:

hiya evan,,,,it's wonderful to have you back,,,,i have a question---what do you think of family guy this year???
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:26pm bubbles:

nice palette!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:26pm john:

2-0 Twinkies top 3. Though we're trying to figure out who's wearing Crocs in the Minny dugout. Almost making us question our rooting stance. ABY, though!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:27pm Joshua K:

Please play some Rock and/or Roll
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:29pm Derek B:

Hiyah Evan, newbie listener alert! Into my second week with the 'MU and "Richard Simmons Voice" Looooovvvvinggg It!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:36pm cheri:

hey efd--have you ever watched family guy? also don't worry about the earthquake mistake,,rock on evan!!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:42pm efd:

cheri, no, never watched Family Guy.
Derek, welcome!
Joshua, I believe you will be satisfied before the night is out.
John, thanks for the update and bubbles, glad you like the new fall colors!

And yeah, good work Roy Halladay and go Twins, Crocs or not!
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:45pm Derek B:

WFMU + iPod App + Bed = Book Gathering Dust on Nightstand.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:45pm Vic:

Hello from Minneapolis Minnesota.
I'm glad you don't ask me to solve simultaneous equations like that other website does.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:48pm PB from SI:

Orlando Hudson moves from first to third on a hit and run groundout. Scores on wild pitch. Twins 3, Yanks 0, end of the 3rd.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:50pm john:

Twins lead, ex-Groovies on the radio...what could be better?
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:51pm seang:

sounds mighty fine
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:52pm cheri:

evan could you please play something for me tonite?? i'm beggin you efd.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:52pm Derek B:

I have lived in this country for nearly 20 years, and baseball rules, terms, scoring methods has always been a mystery to me "is thick"
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:54pm john:

Team that spits the most tobacco juice wins.
  Wed. 10/6/10 9:57pm Derek B:

@john, mystery solved then, cheers m'man.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:00pm PB from SI:

I totally thought the same thing re: that Japanther song. For a minute there, I would have bet my life it was a Descendents song.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:01pm Skirkie:

Yo yo.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:02pm LJP:

You left us standing in the rain. Even the L.A. sky misses you.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:03pm john:

Derek, happy to be of service. My English friends all make fun of me for being obsessed by rounders. Bstrds.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:03pm Skirkie:

That really meant to come out as 'yo YO.' in an acknowledgment type manner, Not yo-yo like a toy. For Roy.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:04pm Joe:

I also furiously searched the internet, convinced it was a cover! Maybe there's something to this....
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:05pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :) Love the new background color, Evan!
Great hearing you. Congrats on 2nd place in the Fantasy League and congrats to Guns of Broxton for winning it all. Congrats to Aharon for winning the people's championship (aka the 3rd place match against me). *sigh* Wait 'til Next Year! Again thanks for inviting me and my New Jersey Knuckles to the league this year, EFD!!!

back in an hour or so I hope. I am fat and need to go wrk out now.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:06pm Derek B:

No worries Skirkie, we all have our ups and downs, innit. ;)
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:07pm Skirkie:

I also didn't meant to make the rhyme 'like a toy, for Roy.'
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:10pm Derek B:

Bollock Brothers are the balls.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:13pm efd:

Derek, is that good or bad?

Danne, thanks for the fantasy baseball recap and thanks to everyone who played.

LJP, I have to say I seem to have a weird effect on the LA weather! So great seeing you & AZ last week!
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:13pm sf spike:

recognized this immediately upon walking back into the room, and I probably haven't heard it in two decades! I think I still own Bollock Brothers records....
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:14pm efd:

Also, good to know I'm not alone in my reaction to that Japanther song.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:15pm Derek B:

@john, wow rounders is something I have not thought about in years - that was a popular game in Ireland too.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:16pm wilbur twinhorse:

sorry i missed the earlier part of the show, i.e. 999, i saw them in s.f. back in the late 70's at some nite club and they were good fun! "i believe in homicide, take it or leave it"
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:17pm john:

@Derek, I assume played mainly by eight year olds and girls (which is the source of the amusement...)?
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:19pm Derek B:

Bollock, actually Bollocks, is a slang term used in Ireland/UK to describe testes...testes...1,2..3??? It's a good thing is what I'm saying. I know I'm annoying.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:19pm Joe:

wow this sounds like shit. And I LOVE it!
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:23pm Derek B:

@john, you know it! It was a big recess game for the childrezes on the playground. In my hometown, Limerick City, a game of rounders always devolved into a fight, heehee.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:27pm john:

@derek, before graduating to hurling and bigger sticks?
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:28pm LJP:

See Prince Poppycock as Jesus in Kristian Hoffman's video "Little Jesus Get Out of That Hole" on youtube.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:29pm PB from SI:

Cano drives in first Yankee run. First and second, one out, top of the 6th.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:29pm john:

Dang, this Elf Power record is rad. Though, to be fair, I say that every time there's a new Elf Power record.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:30pm Derek B:

@john, you know it! Hurling is a big deal for the 'culchies' in Ireland (i.e. the country folk).
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:33pm Amanda:

Please note: I got in and turned on the radio before I turned on the computer. EFD updated the playlist 1 second before the Pernice Bros. track started playing. So I knew I would hear it.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:34pm PB from SI:

Posada drives in A-Rod from second. First and second, two out, top of the 6th.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:35pm Joe:

this is a most excellent soundtrack to the Yankees driving in runs.

Most excellent INDEED
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:37pm Joe:


Under my thuuuumb
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:37pm PB from SI:

Granderson triples off the wall. Yanks 4, Twins 3. Liriano removed after 5 and 2/3
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:37pm efd:

Damn, I never should have played this record.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:37pm Derek B:

On the sports news tip, anyone know if the Patriots traded Randy Moss? (I'm on an iPod Touch and can't be arsed looking it up).
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:37pm Skirkie:

Yeah EFD, the Yanks just took the lead, so if this IS a good track for that I suggest moving on.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:40pm AZ:

Evan, that was actually one of the most entertaining Stones covers ever.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:42pm Derek B:

The drum loop on this song was lifted from Stevie Wonder's 'Superstitous', right?
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:43pm efd:

Glad you thought so! Still, I might need to shelve that Jebadiah record until after the post-season.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:44pm efd:

"Wawa" and "are-uh" is one of the best rhymes ever.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:45pm Skirkie:

I did this, by the way, back in Northeast Philly.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:45pm Kendall!:

Really love this scott & tone song
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:47pm Joe:

this song makes me wonder if me and Tone Tank grew up together and I just forgot about it.

this album is also AWESOME and probably the best 15 bucks I spent last week.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:47pm Derek B:

  Wed. 10/6/10 10:51pm AZ:

"Wait To Stop" = the greatest Pernice Brothers song, IMO.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:51pm Derek B:

Oh shoot, did I mess up the comments interface with that stupid Tone mime? Sorry to PC boardies :/
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:55pm john:

Sabathia walks in a run...4-4. Keep talking!
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:55pm Skirkie:

fortunately I'm the only person IN HISTORY named @joeskirkie so I was able to lock that one up. Don't follow me though, you will be bored.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:56pm PB from SI:

Sabathia loads the bases and walks in a run. Bottom of the 6th, two out, bases still loaded.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:56pm Amanda:

They are so good all the time but Discover A Lovelier You = favorite Pernice Brothers album, of mine. Also Big Tobacco, Joe Pernice solo album, very good

@joeskirkie knows he is lying!
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:58pm PB from SI:

CC leaves 'em loaded. End of the 6th.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:58pm Spoony:

You've come ROARING BACK, Evan. Don't ever leave us again. My heart couldn't take it.
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:58pm Derek B:

Sabathia, it would be really cool if his first name was Zack...SHARON!
  Wed. 10/6/10 10:58pm Skirkie:

Oh no, I'm definitely the only Joe Skirkie ever, I looked it up.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:04pm Derek B:

OMG, The Jags? The only song I ever by them was eons ago 'I Got Your Number (Written on the back of my hand),
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:04pm Amanda:

I meant about the boringness, of course. I like the new Thermals, you know, too.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:07pm Skirkie:

Shucks, she's a sweetheart that Amanda. Say I ordered this record from Norton bout two weeks ago and don't have it yet.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:08pm PB from SI:

Big fly from Tex. John Sterling just vomited a terrible pun. Yanks 6, Twins 4, top of the 7th
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:12pm Kendall!:

you need to start yelling over the tracks then too
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:18pm Danne D:

back for the last chunk of the show :)

To Derek - yes the Patriots traded Moss to the Vikings for a 3rd round pick in the 2011 draft.

Hi everyone :)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:21pm Derek B:

Thanks Danne, what a bummer he'll be missed they should have taken care of him he is worth it :/
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:21pm Derek B:

Thanks Danne, what a bummer he'll be missed they should have taken care of him he is worth it :/
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:22pm Amanda:

Hi Danne!
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:22pm efd:

welcome back, Danne.

PB, I've heard that terrible pun before. Way too many times before.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:22pm Danne D:

Well getting him out of the conference helps my Bengals so I'm all for it :)

Hi Amanda :)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:23pm efd:

also I'm not sure if I ever gave a proper hello to Amanda, so hello Amanda! What-what!
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:23pm Danne D:

Sterling's worst new one is
"Happy Thames are Here Again"
which isn't even a correct pun off the song title.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:24pm Derek B:

"Funk" is bringin' it tonight - s'all I'm sayin'.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:24pm Danne D:

Btw, Evan being still on the schedule = nifty EFD premium swag to be available come March :D

I'm surprised you've only been on 4 years Evan - hard to imagine the place without you.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:26pm Amanda:

Aww, what uppp EFD, thanks! You've just won tickets to see THE SWANS WHAAAT!
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:26pm Derek B:

@Danne, touche :)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:26pm Danne D:

Btw, how much did you win in Vega$? :)

Amanda did you win tickets? If so congrats :) You deserve to win stuff :)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:28pm Amanda:

No no, Danne, that was just a callback. Thanks for the vote of confidence, though.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:29pm Danne D:

Welcome aboard Derek.
I'll alert you and all other good people to the triumphant return of Beastin' the Airwaves with Keili coming on Sunday at the ungodly hour of 6am-9am :)

That reminds me I have to warn her about any brownies that might be around the station when the Sarge crew shows up (not to mention anything Jones and X-Ray might bring in)

LOL :) Well I hope you win next time Amanda :)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:29pm Danne D:

I bet Evan's a good poker player. He's all cheerful and pleasant and stuff and making people enjoy losing their money to him.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:29pm Derek B:

God, that new Swans album is amazing stuff. I thought the Gonjasufi debut was going to be album of the year (for me that is) but this Swans album...
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:31pm Danne D:

Btw, if you folks like cool stuff that's hard to get and will impress your friends go here and make a bid:
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:32pm Joe:

my grandpa always said, never play cards with a man named "Funk"
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:33pm Derek B:

@Danne, thanks very much. Everyone in here is so nice, so glad I found yawl.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:34pm efd:

Derek we're happy to have you!

Danne, I'm not much of a gambler - probably dropped $20 tops in some slot machines. (And thanks for the reminder about the auction!)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:36pm Two Sheds:

Twins have two on with two out now. Bottom of 7th.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:37pm PB from SI:

The Marked Men are the greatest. I just wanted to say that.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:37pm Two Sheds:

So of course Thome struck out.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:38pm Joe:

segue power! not to be confused with segway power.
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:39pm Danne D:

I forgot that you've tried to shed your Gunslinging riverboat gambling ways Evan ;)

No problem about the auction reminder.

I mean you can have Ken and Andy do Seven Second Delay from your house if you are within 60 miles of Jersey City! Or even host your own 3 hour show on FMU (or better yet bid a bunch of money and let Amanda host as she'd do an awesome job!)

There's some great R-Crumb Comics. All kinds of cool LPs. Some of this stuff is like personal donations from DJs themselves. Tons of good stuff.

Again for the lazy that's http://www.wfmu.org/auction
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:41pm cheri:

evan thanx for a great show and g'nite
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:42pm Danne D:

g'night cheri :)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:44pm Derek B:

That auction is so rad, I wish I could scoop up all dem goodies!!!
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:44pm Derek B:

That auction is so rad, I wish I could scoop up all dem goodies!!!
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:44pm macbug:

I completely agree about the microphone comment. I hate that!!! I mix live and people look at you like you are stupid when you gesture for them to lift the mic their soundhole
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:45pm Ike:

I liked Jale. And the newer one, Jaill, seems to have two "L"s. (See jaill.net.)
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:45pm Danne D:

Even the $20-type items are awesome in the auction
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:51pm efd:

You're right, Ike! Thanks - I totally overlooked that extra "L."
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:51pm Derek B:

Dang this song is awesome, nice one E-Funk!!
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:56pm Joe:

so is this song analagous to "Pac-man" fever?
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:57pm Danne D:

Thanks for another great show :)
Good night Funk Fans!!! :D
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:57pm cheri:

efd see you next week
  Wed. 10/6/10 11:59pm Holly in NC:

Great song, great show!
Go Yankees! ;-)
  Fri. 10/8/10 6:29pm Lindsay:

"Alone in the Basement" is an acoustic version of "She's the One," which is the opening track on Rock 'n' Roll Ice Cream.

Love the show!
  Fri. 10/8/10 6:47pm efd:

Oh, duh!! I'm such a Japanthadummy... now it all makes sense. Thanks Lindsay! I guess that's what I get for not listening to complete albums in sequence.
