Listener comments!

  Wed. 5/11/11 9:03pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:04pm funkster:

virgin board, w00t

scratch that. sloppy seconds!
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:08pm JMD:

9 o'clock sounds like some nice, worn out vinyl. Neat!
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:13pm ?:

JMD, you are correct!

Greetings funkster, and hola Richard! Thanks all for tuning in.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:14pm funkster:

who was that masked man?! :-)
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:14pm Frank:

Lamest KISS song ever?
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:15pm efd:

Frank, it has one specific redeeming quality that we will discuss shortly.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:16pm Frank:

The paper gun that came with the LP was cool, though (I still have mine!)
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:17pm funkster:

Frank is a closet KISS completist. :-)
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:19pm Frank:

I saw them at the Cow Palace in SF on the day Elvis died (with Cheap Trick opening!). Gawd, I'm old.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:21pm efd:

the day Elvis died I was working as an intern in Boston's all-news radio station, and saw the bulletins coming in on the teletype (and passed them to the editor on duty). (Also old)
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:22pm funkster:

I was in college and, during the summer, with my family in Brasil (my dad worked there then). <--- no spring chicken
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:25pm Danne D:

Hey EFD and Funk Fans. Doing the archive thing with this one - busy with work. Sure it'll be a great show (as it pretty much always is to borrow a phrase). Enjoy!
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:30pm frisco kid:

Elvis died August 16, 1977 - I had to look it up. That was the summer before my sophomore year in high school, I was probably partying pretty hard, and I went to Germany on exchange that summer. I remember his death being a big deal, though.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:39pm Bobby J:

ROCK JUSTICE! San Francisco - Summer of 1979. Boy do I remember it well 'cause the local AOR station promoted the LIVING HELL out of it during every break. It sounded AWFUL and thus I never went to go see it.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:39pm ?:

hiya evan & danne,,,it looks like i made another friend,,,julie
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:40pm funkster:

hey Frank, this page confirms your memory of date and location, and even gives the tour setlist... how could they have left out "then she kissed me"?????

  Wed. 5/11/11 9:41pm Stevel:

How can I walk the dogs when efd is on? Maybe I'll just lay out more newspaper and get the air freshener.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:46pm efd:

Steve, I can't say I endorse such behavior but I appreciate the sentiment!

Bobby, thanks for confirming that Rock Justice was an actual stage show!
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:47pm dave:

i really love this future wife song.
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:49pm cheri:

evan do you think that julie also cewwwwl? i think she is,,
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:56pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):

Elwyn dubbed me the new name.... WHATS UP EFD!
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:58pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):

*footnote {I am not evil}
  Wed. 5/11/11 9:59pm efd:

Hey not-really-evil Dave!

Hi Cheri! Yes, of course Julie is cool. Of that there is no doubt.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:05pm Kat:

just watched BBC "Synth Brittania' doc on YouTube and recalled my old love for Heaven 17. More damn records I sold and need to buy back.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:08pm Taylor Jessen:

Jason Forrest! Cock Rock Disco! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAFXayH1bpY

  Wed. 5/11/11 10:12pm Billy Jam:

  Wed. 5/11/11 10:16pm efd:

  Wed. 5/11/11 10:18pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):

thems intarwebbes have sirtanely come a long way!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:18pm Stevel:

The rock appears to be increasing in intensity...
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:27pm efd:

I like to think of it as an oceanic ebb and flow....
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:27pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):

never underestimate the power of rock!

\m/ (>_<) \m/
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:28pm Billy Jam:

Yes it was - and thanks for the mention of Friday's show with the KUSF IN Exile guys.......Actually I just extended the series into June with two additional shows on June 3rd and June 10th. One of which Ken/WFMU will be in SF for and do a guest DJ spot on since he is very much engrained in the Save KUSF fight.....HEY KAT - thanks for mentioning that BBC doc which I did not know about but would love to see and now will track down - thanks
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:28pm Stevel:

Flowing nicely. Why do Nordic bands warm things up so much, (Must hear more Kvelertak. They're almost as good as The Renegades.)
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:29pm Julie:

Billy, that is good news the KUSF shows, especially with Ken!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:30pm Stevel:

Call the FBI! Call the law!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:30pm Billy Jam:

  Wed. 5/11/11 10:35pm Stevel:

[speechless. grabbing at invisible hook in jaw]
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:35pm HeyHeyHey:

  Wed. 5/11/11 10:36pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):


\m/ (>_<) \m/

OK - I need to tap out. Thanks EFD!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:36pm Julie:

There's that song
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:36pm Marc in Liverpool:

Aki Kaurismaki band.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:36pm Julie:

No Ann Margrock?
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:37pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):


Hi Fye!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:39pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):


Listen to the Rockin Bird!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:39pm Julie:

I am convinced that Bobby was the most "evil Brady"
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:39pm efd:

see ya, Dave!

Julie - I like the Ann Margrock version, but I'm just not feeling it for the show.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:40pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):


It was Oliver, the illegitimate bastard cousin/son
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:42pm Holly in NC:

2 songs too late,dang. Hi all!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:43pm efd:

also, Stevel, thanks for falling for my Renegades fakery. :)

Hi Holly! Dang, you just missed it!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:43pm Julie:

Poor Oliver. I think they buried him in the backyard with Tiger.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:45pm Droll:

is wrong words one of the XTC pseudonyms?
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:46pm Stevel:

I am an eternal sucker. Pretty much OK with that role in life.

Hey Holly.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:47pm efd:

Droll! It's been forever, nice to see you!

And, no.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:47pm Evil Brady (aka Dave B):

"Fluffy" was there first, Julie!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:48pm frisco kid:

Setting Sons. A fantastic album that I don't own anymore for some stupid reason. I have all the others, not sure what the hell happened. Situation must be rectified.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:54pm Holly in NC:

Anyone else LOVE the original version of 'Underwhelmed' ? From the Peppermint ep, not the totally inferior lp version.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:54pm Kat:

@Billy Jam - it's in 6 parts, first part is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2BSRqR9QgI and click onwards from there. it's great.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:54pm Aharon:

Well, are we gonna die, or are we gonna make it?
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:55pm Ironballs McGinty:

heh heh. Rifles would not taste good I do not think.
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:58pm cheri:

hello julie good to see you again
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:59pm Julie:

We're gonna die but we still got ten days...so it's party time!
  Wed. 5/11/11 10:59pm john:

Oh darn, just got here. Missed the whole Renegades portion of the show. Of course, with an hour to go, you can play them a dozen more times.

Oh, and gueule is somewhere between gull and rhyming with full. Can mean face or, when you're telling someone to shut it, mouth. Knew there'd be a reason for the French major one day...
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:00pm Julie:

I'm having a finewine moment
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:01pm cheri:

evan,,,there's no better friends than you & julie!!!!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:02pm Julie:

Evan's an awful friend! He drank all the chocolate milk and didn't give ME any
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:03pm Droll:

[Blushing from being remembered since last EFD post May 12, 2008]. I've been listening all along (yes, it's just like a mix tape someone talks over).
But more importantly, you're always proving you're the man on FMU for CC. I know April Wine is nearby.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:05pm cheri:

evan i think you buy should some chocolate milk for julie,,
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:05pm Kat:

going to the DEMF Memorial Day weekend...different kind of Detroit music...Dirtbombs are playing tho!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:06pm Holly in NC:

Detroit Music is reminding me of Roscoe Music. Not a bad thing, I hasten to add ;-)
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:07pm Adam in Lynnwood:

@Julie, never you fret. The rapture is sponsored by Hershey's.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:07pm Julie:

@Adam ooooh...so instead of blood pouring in the streets it'll be chocolate sauce? SCORE!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:07pm Holly in NC:

er, Rosco. Only Brits can get away with extraneous vowels.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:10pm Adam in Lynnwood:

Oh, yeah, that won't be blood. Simply cherry chocolate excelsior. We each get a palm's worth.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:11pm Julie:

May as well go out tasty!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:12pm Adam in Lynnwood:

...and light of body and mind.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:13pm cheri:

well evan & julie i have to split for the night,, julie make sure that evan buys you more chocolate milk. thnx for your company and g'night!!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:14pm Billy Jam:

@KAT thanks! @ EFD - loving every song!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:24pm efd:

thanks Billy, much appreciated!

goodnight, Cheri.

Hey Adam, thanks for listening and commenting!

Droll, I'm actually overdue for some April Wine action but don't have any with me tonight. Stay tuned... (and also check out Amanda's show from last week on the Give The Drummer Radio stream!)
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:38pm Adam in Lynnwood:

@efd, thank YOU for the roundabout trip on the cyclonic whip.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:39pm Holly in NC:

I really like that white noise sound.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:40pm efd:

I was just talking about them to Mo Tuffy, one of Noah's henchmen. I totally missed that album when it was out, I need to make up for that.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:41pm Kat:

love this last set.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:42pm Stevel:

Hadn't heard this Insomniacs. Need to get this album very soon
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:42pm Sybil:

I'm here, lurking, eating chocolate covered raisins, and enjoying the music.

And working,darn it.

Thanks for the great background music (not that it sank into the background!)
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:46pm Holly in NC:

@Sybil -

You should check Sconza's DARK chocolate covered raisins. :-)
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:46pm Marc in Liverpool:

I would kill for some crispy M
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:48pm efd:

Hi Sybil, thanks for checking in - sorry about the work.

Kat, thanks, I was really enjoying how that set turned out myself!
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:49pm Marc in Liverpool:

M and Ms, that symbol and the rest of my message didn't show.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:50pm Holly in NC:

@Marc - I thought y'all had smarties?
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:52pm efd:

oh, and hey Marc! Didn't mean to overlook you! Say hi to the Liver Bird for me.
  Wed. 5/11/11 11:52pm Sybil:

These are some kinda dark chocolate. They're pretty good. Can't say the same about the work.
