  Wed. 10/20/10 9:19pm efd:

that was the Riff Doctors, "I Don't Want To Go Back" a single from 1983. It was actually my selection bc Nard was ending early
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:20pm calzone!:

evan,,i really love the show tonite!! great tunes
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:46pm efd:

Joe, just pretend anything with no year is from 1981 and you'll probably be right.
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:46pm efd:

john: ha!
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:47pm Joe:

I'll just pretend it's actually 1981.

I do that alot already anyway.
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:47pm john:

Hey Evan!

Yeah, you'd never guess quite how this gold would turn to turd. Loved this record.

PS That wasn't me, though he was right!
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:49pm cheri:

evan--could you play a 7" for me please
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:55pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)
Hi cheri :)

Hi EFD :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:57pm Tamar:

Totally enjoying the New Afternoon Show tonight!
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:57pm efd:

haha, thanks Tamar!

and hi Danne!
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:58pm Chris:

Thanks for U2 and Buzzcocks!
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:58pm Danne D:

Wow Tamar is here :) The stars are coming out tonight :D
  Wed. 10/20/10 9:59pm Danne D:

finally found my good headphones
now I can tune out the Starbucks.

Maybe this crappy day is finally getting better.

Had to go buy a rolling pin and it took like 2 hours to get to the store :(
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:00pm calzone!:

Are some of the records on 7 inches of Mayhem provided by 99 Records of 99 MacDougal Street in Manhattan?
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:04pm eetrain:

Hey EFD! Jamie says Hi! i wondered how long before you played a stiff record!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:06pm efd:

hey Errol! Hi back to Jamie! Stiff and IRS were dominating the show earlier.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:06pm Danne D:

Rolling Pin = the perfect wedding gift
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:08pm Danne D:

This is so freaky without the usual bed music
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:10pm eetrain:

i just remember going to st. marks sounds back in the day and the 7 and 12 inch singles section was stuffed with stiff and irs records. :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:10pm Danne D:

calzone's name is making me hungry :(

so what's everyone going to be for halloween?

I'll probably be...at work :( hope you guys have more fun plans
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:11pm efd:

honestly I can't believe I used to do a show like this EVERY WEEK!! I guess I was more sprightly then.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:13pm Danne D:

efd is this the song you are playing for cheri :D

anyhow - thanks for being the one part of my day that hasn't sucked, Evan
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:13pm john:

Any week with the Rubinoos is automatically a good one.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:14pm Joe:

so how did the cool afternoon kids of 1979 react to the Robinoos, exactly?
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:17pm calzone!:

Whoa, Clapham South Escalators! Aint heard this one in ages!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:17pm Amanda:

They danced around to it if they knew what was good for them. In a sprightly way.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:17pm Joe:

*Rubinoos. Nailed the capitalization, whiffed the spelling.

On another note, I highly doubt Avril Lavignagne wrote the song that blatantly ripped off that last song.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:17pm Danne D:

Awaiting the moment that Evan starts talking like Bill Kelly
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:17pm Danne D:

  Wed. 10/20/10 10:18pm Danne D:

and now Amanda's here - wfmu is the only refuge on this day - hi Amanda :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:21pm sara:

Ari Up of the Slits just died
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:21pm Amanda:

Hi Danne! Don't be about today, be about the future. Or 1981.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:23pm Joe:

Bob Gucionne also died today.

I don't think he's got any 7" in the library though.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:23pm Danne D:

:) Thanks Amanda :)

Weren't you part of the future in 1981, Amanda? :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:25pm Hatch:

If any radio station's library has a Bob Guccione 7", it's WFMU's.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:25pm efd:

sadly there are no Slits singles in the WFMU library... I checked when I heard the Ari Up news earlier. So sad.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:26pm Danne D:


Google tells me that the October 1981 Pet of the Month was Connie Lynn Hadden.

I'm also reeling from possibly the most off-color thing I've ever ready efd type.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:29pm Danne D:

Don't know if this is off a 7" but here's a song:
The Primates
"Bob Guccione"
Tales of Mr. Conductor

Brian Turner's show Sept 11, 2007
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:30pm Amanda:

I was part of the present in 1981, pre-nursery school. Listened to the New Afternoon Show and read Penthouse with some regularity.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:30pm Danne D:

language removal services
"Bob Guccione"
Sampler V.2.0
language removal

$mall Change's show from June 23, 2002
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:30pm Ken Temkin:

The CHORDS!!!!!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:31pm Danne D:

lol Amanda :)
ahead of your time even then :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:32pm efd:

just for you, Ken!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:33pm Danne D:

Closest I can find.
Brian Turner again.
By Kinski, there's a song called "Penthouse Suite" - it's a 7" so it can be played :)
Link to the show - not the song:
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:37pm Danne D:

That last song was great Evan :)

Amanda - you going to the record fair?
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:38pm Ken Temkin:

Isn't John Lydojb
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:40pm Danne D:

oh :( I didn't see that Evan

That's horrible :(

Next week will be great for a tribute, Evan!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:41pm Ken Temkin:

Isn't John Lydon married to Ari Up's mother? How sad for everyone
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:41pm Danne D:


This is a great video :)

classic Evan :D
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:41pm Danne D:

This is a song I could totally do Karaoke with.

I won't say which parts. :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:43pm Danne D:

Love the bass line in this song
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:45pm do you have:

the Vapors?
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:46pm ?:

Lovin' the show, Evan! But dammit I worked till 9:30 so will have to catch the beginning on the archives..this is the most fun I've had cleaning my apartment in years...Brian Brain, Yay!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:47pm Neal Adams:

that was me
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:47pm Danne D:

I was 11 in 1981,just like Evan :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:49pm cheri:

well have a great nite evan & danne
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:54pm Neal Adams:

One of the most abrupt song endings ever on this one..
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:54pm efd:

you too Cheri

Hi Neal, glad you made it for most of the show at least!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:54pm efd:

did not bring the Vapors 7" with me.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:55pm efd:

Neal, you said it! I nailed it, though! (mostly)
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:56pm Danne D:

Bye cheri :) Sweet dreams to you.
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:58pm Neal Adams:

Nice...Harry Harrison would DEFINITELY be jealous...
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:59pm Amanda:

I so love this song!
  Wed. 10/20/10 10:59pm efd:

aw jeez, I can't imagine a higher compliment, Neal.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:02pm rusty beltway:

:-( I tuned in too late to catch all of the the B-52's track.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:07pm Parq:

Evan, as usual with your WNYU redux shows, you're killin' me with nostalgia. this may be the best Mayhem show yet.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:11pm Ken Temkin:

Ok-This isn't Liar Liar.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:12pm rusty beltway:

I had the Neats 45 I think. Or on a (ahem) cassette mix.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:13pm efd:

as long as it wasn't a cassingle, Rusty!

Parq, thanks!

Ken, not as far as their publishing company knows!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:15pm Whoa!:

that's from 1891!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:15pm rusty beltway:

My favorite cassingle was by a Boston Rapper named MC Ty. The guy who produced it lived upstairs from me. I heard the thing through the floor constantly. One day he gave me the official copy. Respect.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:16pm Ken Temkin:

Good night. I'm off to TR3.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:16pm Danne D:

Now when Mac's show comes up, most of the records will really be from 1891 :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:16pm efd:

  Wed. 10/20/10 11:18pm efd:

for the record I was ha-ing at Ken, but Danne's comment is ha-worthy as well.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:26pm Danne D:

I have this urge to go to a video game arcade all of a sudden
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:28pm rusty beltway:

I have an urge to raid my friend's dad's liquor cabinet
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:34pm Danne D:

Evan - you should be working on Broadway!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:37pm Connie T. Empress:

I was working in a record store during this time...this is the best show EVER! I am dusting off my imports and local licks!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:39pm john:

In case anyone cares, Uribe hits a sac fly off Oswalt in relief in the bottom of the 9th, final score Giants 6, Phillies 5.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:39pm Danne D:

Now Evan's playing Thrash!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:39pm Danne D:

Now Uribe does something! I needed him to do more in the Evan Funk League :(
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:41pm Parq:

Hmm. All these decades, I thought they were saying "Flash".
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:42pm john:

Glad this was one of the last group of essential ones!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:42pm efd:

Great to hear from you Connie, thanks for checking in! What store were you working in?

Thanks for the update, John. So Giants up 3-1, right?
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:42pm john:

Yep, 3-1 and Lincecum vs. Halladay tomorrow night!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:43pm Danne D:

That was fabulous, Evan :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:43pm Danne D:


I have this on a Rhino CD :D
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:45pm Danne D:

This would be a song we'd never sing to Evan as we always enjoy him on the radio :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:46pm Connie T. Empress:

STARRY EYES! Can The Sports be far behind?
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:46pm Neal Adams:

Great segue!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:50pm efd:

aaaah, I didn't bring my Sports singles!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:50pm Danne D:

Wow - this show is like awesome after awesome

Next year - 24 hour marathon of Evan spinning 45s :D
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:51pm Connie T. Empress:

Well Who Listens To The Radio :) B Side of this EC is corker too!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:51pm Parq:

Absolutely freaking great show, efd. Being able to remember these numbers from back in the day is the best thing I've found this year about being old.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:52pm john:

Hey, don't let us stop you from doing it again next week....
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:52pm Connie T. Empress:

YES! Again next week! You know you want to!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:53pm Danne D:

LOL - I was think "Hey, I have this song on CD"

Then I remembered that it's an Evan Funk premium CD :D
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:53pm Joe:

that would require, by my back of the envelope calculations, somewhere around 550 7" vinyl singles.

Btw, if you could wear out a cd like you can wear out a 7", this track from my copy Make Your Own ayhem would be barely audible.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:54pm Danne D:

3 weeks in a row would change it from singles going steady to singles in a long-term relationship :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:54pm Joe:

actually i'm putting it on my list for the record fair
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:55pm Danne D:

By my standard, Finewine is long ago married :D
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:55pm john:

These guys were also on the awesome A Splash of Colour nu-psych comp in about '81. Great stuff!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:55pm Danne D:

Gotta pack up :(

thanks for a great show as always song - honestly gave a big lift to what has been a very trying day :)
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:57pm john:

PS The semi-reconstructed garage rocker sitting across the room says this is the best EFD show she's ever heard!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:58pm Radio Bear:

This. Was. Awesome.
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:59pm Connie T. Empress:

See ya!
  Wed. 10/20/10 11:59pm Neal Adams:

  Thu. 10/21/10 11:05am calzone!:

I concur with 'john'...this may be the greatest 'mayhem' edition ever...I also like to hear EFD sweat it out and panting @ mic breaks. The NAS lives on!
  Thu. 10/21/10 6:07pm Ike:

I still like that U2 track a lot. That fit right in.
  Fri. 10/22/10 5:19pm Crawford:

I last heard that Shambeko Say Wah! song on John Peel when it was first released, thats what I call nostalgia, I am moved beautiful :)
  Mon. 10/25/10 4:58pm rory:

excellent show. I particularly liked the Kleenex and Top Secret tracks!
