Listener comments!

  Wed. 4/13/11 9:06pm john:

He, apparently is the doctor. MD or PhD?
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:16pm Tom M:

very cool colleen green song!
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:17pm efd:

John, I'm thinking D.D.

Tom, I have to give props to Joe D. for turning me on to Colleen Green.
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:21pm Steve L:

Uh oh! Here comes the rock!
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:26pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings to Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:34pm I MAY ASK:

Who is Paul J Meyer?
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:36pm BW:

So they are not the Peruvian schlock rock tranz Hangmen who put out that one song in October 1965?
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:37pm Julie:

I am cold. Warm me with your tunes, Funkman
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:44pm Richard from Venezuela:

http://uvhippo.bandcamp.com/album/square-pegs-round-holes . A little bit funky, and good.
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:45pm BW:

I went downstairs to the coffee shop because I am havin a real hard time concentrating on the work.. but then I realized I couldn't listen to your show there and so I came back upstairs!
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:47pm Mike VL:

Sounding great Evan!
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:47pm cheri:

hiya evan---yes i'm still here cause things did'nt work out as planed this week,,and as i'm loving your show!!!! i sure hope danne shows up tonight,,,
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:48pm efd:

Mike, *you* sounded great last night! (and thanks)

BW, you are powerless to escape (and yes, different Hangmen)

Hi Richard, hi Julie! It's about 100 degrees in the studio, I'll see if I can transfer any of that heat radiophonically.
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:49pm Julie:

yep it was that way Monday too..and too loud to leave door open. That's why naked radio was invented. Of course much easier at 3am :)
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:50pm Julie:

MikeVL is a superstar
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:52pm cheri:

no julie evan is a superstar
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:52pm BW:

I am still not concentrating and I blame you! that "future wife' song was so great
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:53pm efd:

hi Cheri, thanks for stopping by. And there's room for many superstars here at WFMU.
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:55pm Mike VL:

efd is a bona fide one though!
  Wed. 4/13/11 9:57pm cheri:

evan do you have any more 70s tunes tonight??
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:00pm Julie:

EFD is a superstar, that is a given
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:00pm Julie:

I love that new Flying Lizards comp
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:01pm efd:

I was just going to say, can we talk about something else please?! Yes, Julie, that Flying Lizards comp is great!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:03pm I MAY ASK from Venezula:

was going to ask who does this - but now (all these years later) I find out it is the Evasions - love it!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:04pm BW:

you are killin me! I can't get ANYTHING done listening to your show and now tomorrow I am gonna get punched out and as I lay on the floor I will blame you EFD
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:05pm cheri:

evan--the choice is up to you,,,what topic do you want to talk about?
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:06pm I MAY ASK from Venezula:

BW don't blame EFD for your inner procrastination voices that beckon you away from what you really should be concentrating on - and deep down you know it. Now take a deep breath, and repeat after me - "I'm good enough. I'm smart enough. I'm BW enough. And people love me and will like me dammit"
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:08pm Skirkie:

I love meta.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:09pm BW:

I MAY ASK from Venezula: heh why don't you help me with my work.. what do you think about self censorship and art?
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:13pm Mike VL:

Interesting. Thanks for the heads up http://www.pbs.org/lanceloud/
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:19pm G:

Beach Fossils was sublime. Thank you.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:20pm Danne D:

G'evening Funk Fans
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:20pm I MAY ASK from Venezula:

@BW: RE Self censorship and art. Like that inner voice that makes one procrastinate or not do certain things we know we should in life, so too that same voice dictates our artistic voice - oft times silencing or distorting it - once we cease being in free-thinking "creative" mode, only concerned with the art of the moment - and instead becoming sub-consciously controlled by thoughts of the "end product" - which is where self-censorship, which is the worst kind of censorship, comes into play. But for your purposes BW, don't think any more about this topic. You are too smart already. As one wise man once said. You already know this shit homes so don't trip. Simply a good night's rest will serve you better than cramming with pointless info you already have in that clever head of yours. So relax, have a glass of wine, and listen to EFD til midnite or until you fall asleep.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:23pm cheri:

hiya danne,,,yes i'm still here,, there were problems this week,,,=(
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:24pm Steve L:

I MAY ASK from Venezula is a visionary soul.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:24pm Danne D:

Hi, Cheri. Sorry to hear about your problems. Hope you are hanging in there.

Julie did you say Evan was running around the studio naked? I only skimmed the previous comments.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:25pm Baker's Dozen of Females:

How's the flirt tonight? Back door or front door or neither?
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:25pm cheri:

i need love everyday of the week!!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:26pm cheri:

thank you danne i'm doin ok so far,,,
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:28pm cheri:

what's tonight's topic evan??
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:29pm Baker's Dozen of Females:

Cheri, it seemeth.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:29pm BW:

ok -I MAY ASK from Venezula - mr wise man, I like this.. I am just gonna drink some wine look at some pictures.. I wish you could come tomorrow night and watch it all play out! - everyone welcome:
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:33pm Danne D:

Do they release video of these at all, BW? I'm sure the folks out of range and out of time would love to see it.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:33pm Dave B:

Greets Mr. Davies!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:34pm Danne D:

(Reading the premise I think I couldn't debate as I think it's forcing us to pick between a false dichotomy - but that makes a debate that's no fun)
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:37pm BW:

yeah, all these get recorded.. I can look dumb forever!
EFD: that Grosskopf song was mesmerizing - we should all stay up for Bennett
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:37pm I MAY ASK from Venezula:

@ BW re attend your event - I MAY ASK my wife if I can get out of babysitting and if so - might be quite possible. It looks like from your link it is in NY, NY which suits me - and it is free (even better) so I actually may very well make the very exciting sounding event. Either way good luck to you - BW and I encourage others to make your event.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:39pm Steve L:

[bowing in gratitude]
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:39pm Danne D:

I'm thinking I'd like to see a BW rountable with I MAY ASK sometime :)

Nice to see a commenter who posts quality long comments unlike some of us*

* - actually, okay me.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:40pm Holly in NC:

Evan, how do you know when I arrive home from work? 2 weeks in a row - EERIE!!!!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:40pm E.L.:

I'm home just in time! 13W for-ev-ah!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:40pm captaincrunch:

  Wed. 4/13/11 10:40pm cheri:

danne you know you could ask evan for my e-mail address maybe he'll e-mail it to you and we could be aol buds,, how's that sound??
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:40pm Danne D:

This is my 2nd favorite song played every week.

(The first being the EFD theme song of course) :)
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:42pm Danne D:

You should get up on the twitter cheri - everybody's got that now.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:42pm Baker's Dozen of Females:

ty :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:42pm AdamS:

Is Thirteen Women available via the new fangled digital medium or just 7"? My close and play isn't what it used to be
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:42pm Danne D:

And I think that'd make Evan jealous, cheri and we can't be having that.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:43pm Baker's Dozen of Females:

Nice save, DD.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:43pm Julieta:

hot sounds!!! I like it ! cheers from argentina South america
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:44pm Danne D:

lol - didn't realize I saved anything BDOF.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:44pm Holly in NC:

Who knew Leslie West was cool?
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:44pm Danne D:

Greetings Julieta. See, women the world over love Evan's show :)
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:44pm Baker's Dozen of Females:

for example, your butt.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:45pm efd:

Holly - the folks at Light In The Attic records, apparently!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:46pm Danne D:

Too much of my butt out there to save BDOF :( Gotta get back to the gym :(

Btw, random shout out to Adam WarRock again author of the awesome EFD theme. About to add him on Twitter now...@EugeWarRock
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:47pm john:

Hey, the man was responsible for Nantucket Sleighride. Cut him some slack!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:47pm efd:

Hi Danne! Yes, Adam WarRock is the greatest.

Hi Julieta, thanks for listening in Argentina!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:48pm Danne D:

Oops, I'm already following him :)
I think the icon doesn't translate in my brain to @EugeWarRock somehow (that said, it's an awesome avi with Kent Tekulve.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:49pm Julie:

Danne, I was only telling him MY solution for the overheated studio.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:50pm Danne D:

My HHDYDTY Fantasy Baseball League team is awful :(
Glad I got to be in first place for a couple of days before the inevitable downfall *sigh*

LOL Julie, I know :)
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:50pm calzone!:

Is everybody happy? Evan? Can you hit The Jackpot?
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:50pm Danne D:

Gotta say even in a shitty week, Evan's show is an oasis of excellence.

Hiya Calzone!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:51pm Holly in NC:

Yet another semi-rhetorical question - is there a bad version of 'Shakin' All Over', or just varying levels of awesomeness?
Also the Royal Purple sound a lot like the Swingin' Neckbreakers (a positive, in my book)
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:51pm cheri:

well evan & danne i have head out now,,i'm sorry,, but it's been a real joy and lots of fun hangin out with you all,,see you guys soon,,,night!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:51pm Baker's Dozen of Females:

I still think the AL East is being listed with wins and losses backwards as some sort of perverted social science experiment.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:51pm BW:

Danne D - I totally agree - so much goodness comin out of the speakers
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:52pm Danne D:

Aharon is housing everyone - I've managed not to be a victim of any of his trades as yet.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:52pm Danne D:

Have a good night, cheri!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:53pm DD's Butt:

  Wed. 4/13/11 10:54pm efd:

Hey Calzone! And what up, Capt. Crunch? You must be lonely now that CC Sabbathia's cut back so much.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:54pm calzone!:

Hi Danne D! I'm likin the punk rock slabs EFD is spinnin!
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:55pm Holly in NC:

@AdamS - the Norton remaster is vinyl only, but the song itself is widely available on some classic comps readily available in the digital netherworld :-)
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:57pm cheri:

btw danne when will i see you again??
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:58pm Danne D:

lol beats me, cheri - I don't plan my board commenting all that much. the usual shows I appear on the boards are likely suspects as always.
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:58pm The Three Degrees:

Did I hear our cue?
  Wed. 4/13/11 10:59pm Danne D:

I don't really think of my comments as appointment viewing for anyone
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:00pm ?:

thats cewwwl danne,,see ya =)
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:01pm calzone!:

Danne, I for one, set my wristwatch to your board comment chatter. But that's how I roll!
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:03pm Danne D:

lol - that's kinda like danicing to a white noise recording, calzone!
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:04pm Danne D:

Btw, for those folks who tend to tune out at 12am you should stick around and check out Noah's show - it's good stuff and he's a good guy.

@efd - a bubble bath would probably cool you off in that hot studio btw
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:04pm Billy Bragg:

@The Three Degrees -

Check out my cover!
Also fun trivia via Wiki:
* The song was featured in the Philly-based musical Me and Mrs Jones.
* In Kill Bill 2, Bill claims it's his favorite soul song of the 1970s.

  Wed. 4/13/11 11:25pm Danne D:

  Wed. 4/13/11 11:39pm Danne D:

Ugh :(

  Wed. 4/13/11 11:41pm Danne D:

Bad news for you, though, Evan, I'm not gonna bother benching my Red Sox pitchers anymore, so your Sox are doomed!
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:44pm efd:

That's a chance I'll just have to take, Danne.
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:50pm Danne D:

Anyhow, have a good night Evan and everyone. Thanks for a great show as always Evan. How did people ever get through the middle of the week before you hit the airwaves?
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:52pm Danne D:

(one last baseball note, though, you know my team is in rough shape when I've made more transactions than Aharon!!!) :) night all
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:56pm Aharon:

Hey! You talkin' 'bout me?
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:56pm Jessica:

Chandler's <Lurchvoice>: is that like speaking into a hat phone?
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:57pm Aharon:

I'm just here for the music, Danne.
  Wed. 4/13/11 11:59pm Mariano:

Good closer, Aharon.
