Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/23/11 9:06pm ADM:

For a second there I was very confused. There are two GODZ.
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:07pm efd:

yes, these are the Ohio Godz (as you no doubt figured out by now)
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:09pm ADM:

Allmusic says "not to be confused"
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:13pm efd:

and yet you were! :)
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:16pm ADM:

I never forget to look for Haackula.
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:19pm Frisco Squid:

I was first familiar with the 79 Godz - still remember seeing an ad for the album on the back of Circus magazine. Discovery of the ESP-Disk Godz initially confused the hell outta me too.
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:19pm efd:

f. squid, that was the path I took as well!
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:25pm john:

Makes three of us! But as I am in pretty much eternal awe of ESP-Disk, I got past it.
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:47pm Joe B:

hope Curt Gowdy is registered at Sound Exchange!
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:48pm efd:

  Wed. 2/23/11 9:51pm Louis:

Curt Gowdy, what a hack. I mail-ordered that LP after the '73 season, they sent me what I thought was a demo cassette, instead. After all these years I see this is how they actually released the album!
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:52pm john:

There's STILL nothing that brings me back to that happy place like a Cleon Jones highlight reel...
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:53pm andy s:

wow. i grew up in cincinnati in the seventies, so this is really nostalgic. do you remember this stuff firsthand?
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:54pm Joe B:

firsthand? yes! I still can hear the Rose Blows chants at Shea Stadium!
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:56pm efd:

I actually remember elements of the '69 series more than '73, strangely -- *really* strangely since I grew up outside Boston.
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:57pm efd:

Also, Louis, I'll have to respectfully disagree with your characterization of Curt Gowdy, at least when it comes to broadcasting.
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:57pm steve:

Heh...my private space was being invaded by my landlord and his wife. As it happened, Buckner's Bolero was playing just loud enough to really piss the landlord off (he is a die-hard Red Sox fan). Still, what really got his goat was his wife asking why he was so mad. Of course, I had to explain it all in minute detail. Guess I won't see that guy until the rend is due. Also, good thing I"m moving in April
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:58pm Kat:

Hoodoo Gurus!
  Wed. 2/23/11 9:59pm efd:

See, as a Red Sox fan, "Buckner's Bolero" doesn't make me mad at all - I feel like he's putting the whole thing in context and minimizing that one play as the sole reason the Sox didn't win that year.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:01pm Joe B:

yeah, why would that make him mad? I guess if you are looking for a scapegoat, you don't wanna hear it wasn't just one guy's fault.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:02pm gloopin:

  Wed. 2/23/11 10:03pm efd:

what up gloopin!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:07pm andy s:

never really liked the guy, but i had a poster of pete rose in my room when i was a kid. it showed rose trotting around the bases after a a home run after he went after buddy harrelson. (god, how come i remember this shit and not what my girl said last night?) pete rose: very typical dumb german west side cincinnati guy. joe morgan was my man.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:07pm JMD:

Get Metsmerized! Ugh!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:09pm Danne D:

Hey Evan :)
Glad you are playing Baseball Project stuff.

I heard there is a C-list celebrity in the phone room both weeks and an "A"-list celebrity in the phone room week 2 :)
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:09pm Danne D:

Sorry I meant "D"-list not "C"-list

Amanda of course begins with an "A" :D
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:11pm Danne D:


Btw, ladies (and gentlemen) Evan is totally adoptable!
Just sayin'
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:11pm Danne D:

you can who the "D" list celebrity is ;o)
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:16pm efd:

My sources tell me there is going to be a second "D" list celebrity during week 2 as well!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:19pm ADM:

can you give out again the email to write for volunteering? I might have some free time coming. Also, it's happening from what, Sunday to Sunday? I'm a bad listener.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:20pm Joe B:

to volunteer:

scott (at) wfmu (dot) org
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:24pm efd:

thanks Joe.
ADM, the marathon runs for two weeks, starting this Monday morning and ending Sunday night March 13. If you're able to volunteer that would be awesome!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:26pm Danne D:

hmm, I'm stumped Even. I mean Aharon begins with "A" and cheri begins with "C" - ahhhhh but "Disco Diva Cheri" begins with "D" - am i right? :o)
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:28pm Danne D:

you take the "wa" out of this song and it sends a very different message...

very cool song though :)
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:32pm Danne D:

There's also this kick-ass drummer named Davies that plays with the Hoof N Mouth as well.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:34pm Danne D:

Rantoul is just outside of where I went to college in Illinois :)
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:36pm ADM:

email sent. who knew you were a community organizer?
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:44pm JMD:

Rocky Burnette! Thank you, EFD. Haven't heard this since it was a hit the first time around. Neat!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:44pm efd:

great, thanks!

Danne, you'll have to wait till week 2 for the surprise reveal of the other "D" list phone volunteer.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:44pm efd:

cool, glad you enjoyed it! The LP version sounded a lot different to me, but maybe it's selective memory.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:45pm john:

Evan, you didn't get Donnie Iris to volunteer, did you?
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:45pm Frisco Squid:

Rocky Burnette! Another blast from my past. Thanks!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:46pm efd:

John, ha! I wish!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:46pm brendan:

You're killin' it tonite Evan.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:49pm JMD:

Did you play the LP version? It sounded a little less rockin' as I recall. Likewise, selective memory most likely.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:50pm john:

I seem to recall the single version being very different too.
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:52pm Carolyn:

Great show Evan. I'm turning it up!
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:52pm Danne D:

I'm very excited Evan :) Though I still might throw out the random guess here or there anyway as far as the other "D" list celebrity. Wait - you don't have Kathy Griffin in your phone room do you?!? :D
  Wed. 2/23/11 10:55pm Danne D:

What if the person changes their name to IBM, Evan?

  Wed. 2/23/11 11:00pm efd:

Don't get cute, Danne!

(and thanks for posting the links.)
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:02pm Parq:

Wow, I'd completely forgotten this terrific Elton number.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:02pm Danne D:

Totally rocking my massive NASCAR headphones while I listen here in the Starbucks (little headphones hurt too much).

Grey Seal :) Cool :)

No problem Evan :) Can people use their board name though - could it be the "Coalhard Ticket Oasis" or the "Disco Diva Cheri Ticket Oasis" for example?
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:02pm efd:

Hey Carolyn, thanks! And thanks Brendan as well.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought that "Tired Of Toein' The Line" sounded different.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:03pm Danne D:

Hi Parq :) good to see you here :)

So Evan I assume the Happy How Do You Do To You Fantasy Baseball League will get started sometime after the marathon?
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:06pm Snortley:

You're kidding, right? I got all the EJ CDs at the record fair for, like, 2 bucks apiece.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:07pm Joe B:

Donnie Iris and the Cruisers
Announcing June 18, 2011 Show

Post Game Concert: Donnie Iris & The Cruisers / Michael Stanley & The Resonators
Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cleveland Indians
Progressive Field
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:10pm Danne D:

what was the number again?
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:12pm Danne D:

ugh the one night i wanna call and it's the other number
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:14pm Frisco Squid:

The new Joke album is a nice return to form. And they were stellar when I saw 'em in December.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:14pm Danne D:

536 it's 536 right?
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:14pm Parq:

Hey, Danne. Worked late, so trying to cram a whole evening into two hours. Kinda like that show in the 60s about the guy with the terminal illness. "Run For Your Life", I think it was called.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:15pm Parq:

Evan, working really hard on resisting the urge to pogo to this KJoke number.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:16pm Danne D:

"work is like a terminal illness" - sounds like a good punk song
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:24pm efd:

Hey Danne, the off-air number is the same; it's the on-air number that's different.

Parq, why resist?!

Joe, funny, Cleveland was the team PIT was playing when I was there and Donnie Iris played.

Snortley, I was struck by a sudden urge to get those Elton John CDs a few weeks ago; I couldn't wait for the record fair. Even so they're only like $7 new.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:24pm Steve L:

This set is going to make me late for work tomorrow.

  Wed. 2/23/11 11:26pm Danne D:

LOL - well I assume the tix are gone by now?

Was too busy processing whether I could go on the given date (and its relation to the marathon) that I totally missed the number. Just didn't want to guess and call some poor person at 11pm with a wrong number.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:29pm Danne D:

Maybe I'll head out to one of the shows anyway :)
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:29pm Holly in NC:

Hi all! Evan, great show. Well duh ;-) Luddite that I am, I prefer New Math to JBB,but nonetheless lovely to hear any version of Invocation.

Will it irk anyone tonight if I note Duke's bkball win? ;-)
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:30pm Irked:

Wanna Duke it out?
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:32pm Holly in NC:

Ha! A swift jab to your Temple, & we're done ;-)
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:32pm Kat:

Personally, I adore that Dirtbombs record.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:33pm Danne D:

LOL - If I can sit next to Scharpling I can handle Todd-o-Phonic Todd
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:34pm osvi:

Its the most wonderful time of the year!
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:36pm Danne D:

OMG was about to say gbye but not when Harry's on!
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:37pm In Sound Junkie:

Harry Harrison!!!! Listen and learn....
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:39pm Danne D:

It's like 4 degrees in this Starbucks but I'm gonna stick it out through this air check :)

Have a great night everyone! See you soon Evan :)
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:40pm efd:

Danne, I'll send out info about the fantasy baseball league after the marathon.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:42pm Danne D:

Great Evan :) The rest of the show will be from my warm car :) Gbye again all
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:50pm Holly in NC:

This is by FAR the best version of 13 (wo)men ever! Love it. Since I learned of this version from 'Hang It Out to Dry' I now expect to hear Richard & the Young Lions...
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:52pm efd:

Haha Holly, I was thinking that too! Especially with Harry Harrison lingering in the air.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:52pm Parq:

Evan, you are totally rocking the reminiscence tonight. I've had a dozen "omigod, I remember this song" moments easy.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:55pm 12539:

I was afraid of jinxing things if I said anything earlier, but this show has been even more awesome than usual, Evan.
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:56pm Joe B:

thanks for turning me onto Tropical Sleep!
  Wed. 2/23/11 11:57pm efd:

thanks everyone, see you for the marathon next week!
  Fri. 2/25/11 1:25am Holly in NC:

Where, pray tell, would one obtain that Lame Drivers?
