Listener comments!

  9:02pm Howard Hues:

I own them!
  9:10pm Stevel:

  9:18pm Speculation:

Finale of a certain show = comment atrophy
  9:19pm Danne D:

woo! It's time for the FUNK!
Hi all :)
  9:19pm Aharon:

This Cute Lepers song is ridiculous. It's like what people want The Hold Steady to be.
  9:20pm efd:

oohhhhh, interesting theory! Really? I wouldn't have thought there would be that much overlap.
  9:21pm efd:

Aharon, YES! Such an amazing song!

Hey Danne, Steve and Mr. Hues!
  9:21pm Speculation:

Someone from NC was talking about Randy (finalist from NC) in comments last week.
  9:22pm Speculation:

or Scotty the finalist (see what a big fan I am?), maybe Randy was the commenter
  9:22pm Danne D:

Chris Carpenter looked good today. Hard luck loser vs Latos. Still wish I could get a real reliever
  9:22pm Joshua K:

I have this Redd Kross album at home somewhere! I got it from the WFMU record fair, possibly in the $1 bin.
  9:22pm Sybil:

I would not care to speculate.
  9:27pm Sybil:

Does every date have a song? How often does this opportunity arise?
  9:27pm JMD:

If it was yesterday you could've played Lakeside Park by Rush. And if Grandma had balls she'd be Grandpa.
  9:27pm efd:

I'm pretty sure this is the first one I've taken advantage of.
  9:28pm Sybil:

Sorry, should have said "song or group or album" in that last comment...
  9:28pm Stevel:

Great tune. And it is a familiar date.
  9:30pm Danne D:

sybil that sounds like an awesome idea for meghan's show :)

wooooooo Warrock!!!!!!!
  9:30pm Mike East:

Have I mentioned how awesome your theme song is? Good evening efd/all!
  9:32pm Joe B:

That is an AWESOME theme song!
  9:35pm Joe B:

Phaseshifter includes the great song After School Special among other hits ...
  9:36pm XIII Mujeres:

What other song, evan baby?
  9:36pm Sybil:

25 May 1977: Star Wars opens?

Mebbe not...
  9:36pm Danne D:

guess Cuddly Lepers would not be a practical name.
  9:37pm Aharon:

Oh, weird. I was at that WarRock show. Or maybe not that weird.
  9:38pm Sybil:

How about the Glorious Revolution
You know, I bet this is it.
  9:39pm cheri:

heeeey hows it goin evan,,julie( if you're here) and danne??how was your day??
  9:40pm XIII Mujeres:

We have quite a history, sweetie.
  9:40pm john:

I remember hearing a 1974 year-end Top 40, and Rock The Boat was the best-selling single of the year.
  9:42pm herb:

ooh - the dB's. aside: i read that STEVE EARLE was on tonight show, may 11, and that WILL RIGBY was on drums. neat!
  9:45pm mildred:

Thank you for the dbs, again.
  9:45pm Danne D:

hey cheri.

that was a great db's song Evan.

This Sticks N Stones song would be a fantastic Hoof N Mouth choice btw.

So, Aharon did you hear my trade off during SSD?
  9:50pm cheri:

hiya evan,,,is julie here tonight??
  9:50pm Aharon:

'fraid not, Danne. I had to pick up nieces at ballet (not a euphemism). Though in fairness, I heard nothing.
  9:50pm Paulie B:

Not going play Blue Öyster Cult's "Then Came the Last Days of May" then?
  9:51pm Joe B:

I thought this was gonna be the band to break out of Detroit !
  9:54pm efd:

Joe, I know! Instead they virtually broke up onstage at Brownie's.

Paulie B - no, I am not.

Hi Cheri. If you look at the comments you can see for yourself whether Julie is here.

Mildred - you're welcome!
  9:55pm Danne D:

The video for this song is fantastic. Though it lacks one thing: EFD.
  9:56pm Danne D:

LOL actually I didn't throw a trade offer at you Aharon - though with that cacophony I figured you might have imagined one ;)

Seriously, folks, if you haven't seen the video for Moves by now - you are depriving yourself. Therese = best crazed fan ever (as one example)
  9:58pm dave:

"moves" was my biggest record store day score. and yes, the video and song are pure genius.
  9:59pm Danne D:

For EFD in action you have to go back aways:

My new favorite picture ever:
  9:59pm Kat:

What Dave said re the New Pornos :)
  9:59pm dave:

i think matador should've pressed up "Moves" flexis to more accurately reflect the video.
  10:00pm Danne D:

Matador should've also included a 5-finger fillet knife as well :)
  10:02pm Sybil:

Awwwwww.... that photo is adorable, Danne.
  10:02pm dave:

  10:03pm XIII Mujeres:

Please leave out the many trips to various county health clinics, tyvm!
  10:03pm Stevel:

Hey XIII, no secrets among friends.
  10:04pm Danne D:

ain't it though? :)

btw, my 3rd grade teacher would be horrified that ain't does not cause a red-squiggly in the auto-correct.

I'm loving the full treatment for 13 Women, Evan. I think Harry would be proud.
  10:04pm osvi:

I want to be the 1 man...
  10:05pm Stevel:

[sitting, pencil above paper, studiously looking at teacher efd]
  10:06pm Danne D:

I like this version - very soulful :)
  10:06pm XIII Mujeres:

will this be on the exam? [batting eyelashes]
  10:10pm Danne D:

Illustrated version of the Tiffany Thayer book available on Amazon:
  10:12pm XIII Mujeres:

If we were on the A side, the title could have been "--ck Around the Clock"
  10:12pm Danne D:

IMDB entry for 13 Women:
  10:13pm Danne D:

This version has a lot more of a hep cat deal to it
  10:13pm Sybil:

The text of the book is available for free somewheres or other, but from my poking around in the name of "research" I got the impression that it's not something I'd actually want to read. The film looks like good fun though - pre-Code Hollywood, yeah!
  10:14pm randy in NC:

North Carolina does it again...
  10:14pm XIII Mujeres:

American Idol's over, eh Randy :-P
  10:15pm randy in NC:

  10:15pm Danne D:

So the original makes this location real - with an Atlantis-like quality to it while the Bill Haley makes it seem like it was just a dream.

I rate the original version ahead of the Bill Haley version.
  10:17pm Stevel:

[honestly could not have asked for a better media experience]
  10:17pm cheri:

evan just to let you know you're another one of my favorite dee jays,,
  10:18pm Danne D:

EFD's moved down in the world - now he's just one of a group of djs...

Now this version is more swingin'
  10:19pm Danne D:

This version really puts the original to shame in terms of inneuendo
  10:19pm Sybil:

I wish Charo had covered this...
  10:20pm dave:

the ann-margaret version was the only one i was familiar with before i heard the renegades one, so i thought THAT one was doing the gender-bending.
  10:20pm Stevel:

I vote "Horrible" for this one, but hey, it fills out the picture.
  10:21pm Chicken Tender:

  10:21pm Danne D:

lol Evan, I admit I thought of the Flintstones too when I first heard it :)
  10:21pm Stevel:

Di-NA, Di-NA
  10:21pm dave:

it's almost unfair to play the renegades version after those others. it just destroys everything that came before.
  10:21pm john:

So that's forty women and sixteen men. Still two and a half to one.
  10:21pm Danne D:

Wooooooooooooooooo :)

Renegades>Original>Anne Margaret>Bill Haley
  10:22pm Danne D:

It took all this time for the Renegades to come along and put the perfect hook on this song.
  10:22pm tim:

Because of you, I suddenly remember I have an Ann-Margret likeness made of marzipan in the fridge. Thanks Evan!
  10:22pm Stevel:

  10:22pm Paulie B:

Four versions of "Thirteen Women."

That's 52 women! EFD's dealing a deck of dirty cards!

Thanks for the history lesson, Evan.
  10:23pm Dinah Shore:

How'm I gonna fit 13 men in the back seat of my Chevy? MWAH!
  10:23pm Sybil:

john's math > paulie's math
  10:24pm cheri:

danne you're my only online friend!!!
  10:24pm JMD:

Good one, Dinah! I laughed out loud reading that! Thanks.
  10:24pm Paul Harvey:

I heard that "Page... Two!"
  10:25pm Danne D:

LOL at least Evan did go straight into a Wal-Mart add there.
  10:25pm Paulie B:

I held back. Evan hates when I do math.
  10:26pm Danne D:

cheri, I doubt that I'm your only online friend.

Final tally: 40 women. 16 men.
  10:26pm Stevel:

No indeed.
  10:26pm john:

And I tend to do it as a party trick.
  10:27pm Paul Harvey:

or Sleep Comfort Bed ad
  10:27pm Danne D:

Mets-Cubs in a rain delay but it's an official game.
  10:28pm Stevel:

Hey! White Mystery is coming to lil' ol' Fort Wayne IN, in about two weeks, if we're not all killed by tornadoes tonight
  10:28pm Danne D:

Paul Harvey was the master at seamlessly rolling into those ads. I betcha a huge portion of his audience didn't even notice.
  10:29pm Joe B:

Evan, great job on Thirteen Women!
  10:29pm Paul Harvey:

Those 13 ladies could have really used a Sleep Comfort Bed.

  10:30pm efd:

Thanks Joe, and thanks everyone! Glad you enjoyed that. I think the best part was Tim remembering his marzipan Ann Margaret in the fridge.
  10:34pm cheri:

evan i have to admit yer so rad too!!!!
  10:40pm efd:

thank you, cheri.
  10:40pm AZ:

I always love it when the EFD show enters the brain-destroying psychedelia zone...
  10:43pm efd:

AZ, we will likely be returning there after the luxury ticket bubble bath.
  10:43pm Danne D:

Lightning 5 Bruins 4 with about 3 1/2 minutes left in the 3rd period btw
  10:44pm Danne D:

Tampa Bay - Vancouver would be the NHL's dream Stanley Cup Final for ratings I am sure.
  10:44pm AZ:

  10:47pm AZ:

Jeez, I don't think i've heard this LOTNC song since Trouser Press was still being published.
  10:47pm AZ:

(I am an old person.)
  10:48pm randy in NC:

Wow, been a long time since I've heard that!
  10:49pm cheri:

well evan,, i got to split evan & danne ,, thnx for the company,, ohh evan the next time you see julie please tell cheri says hello,.,,ty efd
  10:50pm john:

Lords of the New Church also contained Nicky Turner from the vastly underrated and always brilliant Barracudas, as well as Brian James from the Damned.
  10:51pm cheri:

danne yes you are my only online bud!!
  10:52pm Stevel:

I'd put Brian James on the underrated list as well, at least when he was playing lead with lots of speed in his system.
  10:54pm Danne D:

have a good night cheri - and there's lots of friendly board people if you give 'em a chance.

Btw, Tampa wins 5-4 and forces a Game 7 Friday Night in Boston! Hope it goes OT as there's nothing better than an overtime Game 7.
  10:56pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & all -

Tarnation!!! Missed LOTC - I LOVE Russian Roulette. In fact, I love LOTC, from Dreams & Desires to Sonic Reducer to Live for Today to Like a Virgin, yes, you can now guess my age with a considerable degree of accuracy.

And I do know which are covers ;-)

@everyone -we are NOT old.

@Randy in NC - did Scotty win?
  11:01pm efd:

Hi Holly!

John, thanks for the LOTNC assist - I was pretty sure Brian James was in there but I wasn't positive.
  11:02pm Paul Harvey:

Randy was happy, ergo Scotty won.
  11:04pm cheri:

i hope you have a great week evan!!!
  11:05pm Paul Harvey:

i will be very unfriendly if cheri starts asking me three times every week how my day was and will i play one specific group over and over by rote. i aint sayin, i'm just sayin.
  11:06pm john:

Always a pleasure, especially as it allowed me to continue my three-decades-long streak of semi-gratuitous plugs for the Barracudas.
  11:09pm Aharon:

Okay, after that little pub pun, I feel better about everything I've said over the years. Because, you know, it's all about affirmation and enabling.
  11:10pm Clipboard:

Quite a little workout for me every week.
  11:14pm Danne D:

Paul Harvey speaks wisdom.
  11:14pm Paul Harvey:

i been in the business a few years, i've seen it *all*
  11:22pm cheri:

danne,, what do you exactly mean "WISDOM"?
  11:23pm Holly in NC:

So I think NC is now responsible for 3 Idol winners..what gives? Any clues?
And before commenting, please remember that NC has also birthed Link Wray, Thelonius Monk & George Clinton among many, many innovative & illustrious others.

Plus, I can show y'all the real Tobacco Road!
  11:23pm Paul Harvey:

  11:25pm Barney Fife:

It mena us Tar Heels got us some taste. Talent, and taste.
  11:26pm Danne D:

Have a good night folks! Gotta hit the car. Cheri - I think the advice is friendly, s'all. Mix up your game a bit. I'm confident that ya can. G'night!

Thanks for a great show Evan!
  11:26pm mike east:

That m was amazing. Wicked guitars!
  11:33pm efd:

Yeah, they're not messing around! Well, maybe they are, but it works either way.

Goodnight Danne, have a good night.

John, I assume you know the Barracudas (redux) have a show coming up locally with the Barerracudas.
  11:36pm Holly in NC:

TV Ghost kinda sounds like a litle brother band cross between Volcano Suns & Christian Death. I bet they like LOTNC also - but they're probably not ready to admit it. Anyway, I like 'em.

OOH! I keep forgetting amidst the hype that this new Kurt Vile really is really cool.
  11:39pm mike east:

I agree holly. He's got real attitude
  11:39pm mike east:

I agree holly. He's got real attitude
  11:40pm cheri:

tell me evan do you think i should take a little sabbatical from the comment board?
  11:44pm Barney Fife:

Ernest T. Bass ain't the only nut round these here parts. Nip it in the bud, nip it nip it nip it!
  11:44pm Noah:

Tell me more about various snacks, cause I'm snacky!! cookies, small cakes, chips, ice cream, cooling drinks and things
  11:44pm Noah:

me me me me
  11:45pm Holly in NC:

are there bones in your ice creM?
  11:46pm Barney Fife:

Nope, I'm just happy to see you.
  11:46pm Noah:

Bones? i hope not, only the best dairy creams and the finest peanut butter...
  11:47pm Aharon:

Thanks again, EFD. All funds unspent will be redirected at fund drive time.
  11:48pm Joe D.:

holy fuck, he's singing!!
  11:49pm Noah:

Bo Ruffy?
  11:49pm Joe D.:

pardon my vulgarity

okay back to homework
  11:50pm efd:

naw man, that's Mo Tuffy.
  11:50pm Lyle Wagoner:

I was the handsomest once.
  11:51pm Joe D.:

thats segue material right there, go for it fellas!
  11:52pm Noah:

Ahhh MT, Moe is on the hit list right now!!
  11:55pm cheri:

i think i SHOULD take a litte break from the comment board,,huh efd??
  11:56pm john:

Evan, just talking about whether or not it would be a worthwhile trek to see that show! Trying to figure out the lineup.
  11:57pm efd:

I think you should be less worried about what I think.
  12:00am Average White Listener:

Another cool show, loved the 13 Women archeology
  12:00am Aharon:

Aaah! Real numbers is not an easy band name to Google.
  12:01am randy in NC:

AWL, that's funny the AWB played here last weekend...
  12:05am Average White Listener:


  2:43pm rory:

oh man I've always thought "just be good to me" was a sick jam! Nice to hear the 7" version
