  Wed. 5/18/11 9:45pm JMD:

nice Zappa cover! Neat!
  Wed. 5/18/11 9:46pm efd:

The summer schedule won't be announced for another couple of weeks, so your guess is as good as mine at this point.
  Wed. 5/18/11 9:58pm stingy d:

YO! funkaho! you know the speedies? did you(r show) turn me on to them?????
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:02pm cheri:

evan,, i may have told you this before but i want to know your thoughts-- i was born in '81 but brought up on 70s music,,,is'nt that interesting??
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:06pm stingy d:

just like it was last time i was here. cheri stay in love with the funk.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:12pm efd:

Hey Stingy, it's quite possible that was me - I'm a fan and I've definitely played them before.

Cheri, I have to admit that really isn't especially interesting.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:14pm cee dubbles:

I allus confuse the Upper Crust with the Demolition Doll Rods. Too many drunken nites at Maxwells!
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:17pm efd:

The Upper Crust generally have more clothes on.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:20pm cheri:

  Wed. 5/18/11 10:25pm Danne D:

  Wed. 5/18/11 10:27pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

  Wed. 5/18/11 10:31pm baker's dozen o'chicks:

  Wed. 5/18/11 10:32pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

  Wed. 5/18/11 10:33pm Score minus seven ladies:

Hey hot stuff.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:35pm #K:

Hi EFD, the cheeseburger record is probably on the Adult Swim label on account of the fact that the guitarist Christy Karacas is the director of the animated show "Superjail" currently airing on the Adult Swim segment of Cartoon Network. cheers!!!! sorry for being a know it all keep up the great show
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:36pm Danne D:

Ponders how many women and men will be around after the rapture. Perhaps Evan has a song that can illustrate this for us.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:36pm baker's dozen o'chicks:

that would be frenzied chicks, gone wild...
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:36pm cheri:

i'm back evan!! hiya danne,,,whats up??
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:37pm Sybil:

I dunno, I feel like getting in my brand new car and driving...
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:38pm Danne D:

Hey Evan, not much is up cheri. Any big plans for the rapture this weekend?

Hey there Sybil :)
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:39pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

She'll be playing cake or the sweet, forr shorr
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:41pm cheri:

danne i think it'll be a gag,,, =(
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:41pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & everyone!
Who's going to butter our bread & sweeten our tea?
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:41pm Sybil:

This is pretty funky stuff.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:42pm Danne D:

Hey Holly!

cheri why so sad if the rapture ends up being a gag? you can laugh about it on Sunday then
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:43pm Stevel:

Danne D: I've heard there may be about 120% more women than men left behind.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:44pm Holly in NC:

Well, this kicks a**!
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:44pm randy in NC:

There is clearly no triskaidekaphobia here!
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:45pm Sybil:

I think you mean 1200% more, Stevel.

Me and Cheri, for sure.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:45pm Stevel:

If you didn't notice, I stink at math. Hopefully, if I get left behind, there will be a nice lady to help me in that department
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:45pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

More like triskaidekaphilia
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:46pm randy in NC:

@OaDC - damn straight!
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:47pm Stevel:

I will also need assistance in, oh, about a dozen other tasks.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:48pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

@randy (nice name ;-) ):

That's what *she* said.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:49pm Holly in NC:

@stevel - If the rapture converts us to a base 8 world, there will likely be *15* fine women to help you out. How cool is that?

@Ssybil, I'm with you & Cheri, I think...
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:49pm cheri:

well to tell you the truth danne i just feel weary about the rapture,,i really don't know whats going to happen,,,
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:52pm Danne D:

Well work has me busy so I figure I'll read up on all the rapture literature I have on Sunday and read all about it.

Props to #K for that informative posting, btw.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:53pm cee dubbles:

evan your bed music always hits me in the gut and makes me want to go on a crime spree
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:54pm Danne D:

Yankees-Orioles going to the 13th inning. It'd be great if there were a song that could sorta commemorate the occasion numerically.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:54pm Stevel:

OK Holly, how many of me would there be in base 8?
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:55pm randy in NC:

What was the last Friday?
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:55pm Danne D:

Random shout out to Clay Buccholz for plunking a couple of guys instead of walking them to keep his WHIP down. Good job there. Of course he got the kind of run support my starters usually get, but such is life.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:55pm Stevel:

13 innings, and see the short stop field a ground(er)
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:55pm efd:

I am not ignoring all this numerical female talk, just by the way.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:56pm Tom Lehrer:

Base 8 is just like base 10, really.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:56pm Danne D:

we're having fun EFD :) it's your show after all ;)
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:56pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

flirt! ;-)
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:56pm Holly in NC:

One, Stevel, still one! So you could parcel out 2 additional tasks. What a lucky man. Back rub?
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:57pm cheri:

evan you have excuse me,, i'm commenteer geek lol
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:58pm Stevel:

Two back rubs, thanks so much for asking.
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:59pm Holly in NC:

btw, i love the new liminanas
  Wed. 5/18/11 10:59pm Over a Dozen Cuties:

girls at our best, that's us!
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:02pm cheri:

evan that's my favorite hobby!!!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:06pm Holly in NC:

Also btw - received my 'fmu swag yesterday - including, of course, 'Starting with the 70s vol 2'! Evan, both your & Noah's cd covers are AMAZING. Will actually listen to said cds when live shows are over.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:17pm cheri:

  Wed. 5/18/11 11:29pm Frank:

Not to burst anyones' bubble, but Personal & The Pizzas are actually from Oakland, CA.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:30pm efd:

And what makes you think we're not just playing along?
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:35pm Ripping Off the Lid:

Frank would also like to advise us that Los Straitjackets are not *really* Mexican wrestlers!
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:35pm Danne D:

Goodnight, cheri.

Congrats on your swag acquisition Holly. Still waiting patiently for mine :) Looking forward to it coming.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:36pm Danne D:

  Wed. 5/18/11 11:36pm Ripping Off the Lid:

  Wed. 5/18/11 11:37pm Holly in NC:

And why ever would you think that, Evan? ;-)
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:39pm Fernando:

I never get tired of this !!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:39pm Danne D:

Thank you Evan :)
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:40pm Danne D:

Yankees-Orioles have gone to the 15th inning! (pretty amazing for a game that was thought to be in danger of getting rained out)
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:41pm cheri:

just one last comment evan---your one of the BEST dee jays on fmu!!! i swear!! aint that right danne?
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:42pm Danne D:

that is a fair statement, cheri
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:43pm Ripping Off the Lid:

yanks can't beat the birds cleanly? more trouble right here in river city.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:44pm Holly in NC:

I will now share that I'm a Yankees fan, born & bred.
Thanks, Dad! But, Dad's been dead a long time and every other man in my life has been a Red Sox fan, so we all CAN get along. Except during playoffs.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:45pm Holly in NC:

Nice new Sloan.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:48pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Nothing like a little vintage John Waite! And Tony Brock doesn't hurt either
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:50pm nathan in la:

Thank you for the Babys song Evan!
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:51pm Danne D:

Yanks take a 3-1 lead in the top of the 15th. Men on 1st and 3rd and nobody out.
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:53pm randy in NC:

Holly, what do you think of the Scotty fever going on down here?
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:53pm Ripping Off the Lid:

sacre bleu! les breastfeeeders!
  Wed. 5/18/11 11:56pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show as usual Evan!

  Wed. 5/18/11 11:59pm Holly in NC:

@Randy - [haughty sniff} - I don't do Idol - that said, he seems like a good, nice kid & I hope he sticks with baseball!
  Thu. 5/19/11 12:01am Michael from the Left Coast:

Cain was in the last lineup of the Babys
  Thu. 5/19/11 12:01am randy in NC:

@ Holly - I was in Garner on Friday, the town was plastered with Scotty signs. Pretty good voice for a 17 year old if you like that kind of stuff.
  Thu. 5/19/11 12:02am Wikipedia:

The Babys, "Cain left to join Journey. "
