Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/1/11 9:03pm john:

Hey Evan!

OK, so players pick their own songs to blast over the PA when they come to bat. But what SHOULD those songs be? Once again, I'm nominating Angel Pagan's as "Been Caught Stealing."
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:10pm cheri:

hello evan--please tell me if you think that you'll be on the new schedule??
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:14pm Stevel:

Wednesday night. My only media addiction, (beyond the general internets of course.)
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:16pm efd:

Hi John! I can't think of anything more suitable at the moment.

Hi Steve, at least this is a healthy addiction (I think!)

Cheri, I have no idea if I'll be on the new schedule. We're all waiting anxiously.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:20pm reality check:

great start, monsieur efd.

cheri, less than three hours ago julie told you the schedule hasn't been decided yet. and you've been asking every DJ on every show you comment on for weeks that same exact question, every single show, and always getting that same truthful answer. I'M BEGGING YOU, come up with new material.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:23pm 12539:

The 90's are upon us!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:24pm dale:

hello mr deejay man. sos band cover made me think about cherrelle, and rebbe jackson, and adele bertei and.......which made want to ask you - do you have build me a bridge? yay or nay, thnx!!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:25pm Danne D:

Woohoo! It's time for the FUNK!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:25pm mildred:

You are keeping tune nicely with the rumbling thunder & fading tornados here in western Massachusetts.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:26pm Danne D:

Happy Hoagiefest, Evan
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:26pm efd:

Oh man, dale, that's part of the setlist for the next on-air Disco Dance Party, which hopefully will happen sometime over the summer!

I'll have to check the WFMU library for "Build Me A Bridge" when I have a chance.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:27pm efd:

greetings, 12539! Mildred, stay safe up there!

Hi Danne, happy hoagiefest to you too!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:27pm Danne D:

This starbreaker song sounds very Moody Bluesish. Julie would approve.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:28pm john:

How long can you keep up the "every other song a 7"" streak?
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:28pm Dylan:

I just bought a copy of the sound of summer on ebay after reading your mention of it on twitter. I love this song!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:29pm john:

About that long, eh.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:29pm dale:

i went through a disco 12 inch 45 phase. wish i had the answer song to somebody else's guy. it's gold, I tell ya!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:30pm Stevel:

Wish I had a theme song. efd gets TWO! [moping]
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:30pm dale:

oh, i finally get the theme. duh!! i'm looking forward to onj from grease or husky rescue
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:33pm Danne D:

I think Adam Warrock pretty much made it mandatory that Wednesday 9pm is time for the FUNK
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:35pm Joe B:

Cute Lepers Sept 1 at Knitting Factory, make your plans now!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:39pm Danne D:

Mac did an awesome cover of that horrible Wildfire song back in the '07 Hoof N Mouth :)
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:39pm cheri:

heeey danne,,,evan i hope you don't mind me saying this but you always have a kick-ass show every week!!!! so rock on efd!!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:40pm John L.:

The movie you were thinking of is "Wild In The Streets."
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:41pm EricBlenders:

14 or fight is from Wild In The Streets
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:44pm efd:

Ah ! Of course, Wild In The Streets! Thanks Eric and John, I can't believe I blanked on that.

Joe, I think they're doing another date in town also around then...? Was thinking of trying to have them on again but their tour schedule looked pretty tight.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:47pm Joe B:

Looks like Boston, Brooklyn then Philly. Though if you can do daytime that Friday, not too far to Philly for them!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:48pm cheri:

evan i'm always ready for your shows!!!!!
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:48pm Stevel:

Crispy Ambulance. First saw that name when I first saw a Throbbing Gristle single at Wax Trax in Denver, circa 78-80. Oddly enough, that name stuck in my head.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:53pm Danne D:

hey cheri. I agree that Evan always does a great job picking the songs for his show.
  Wed. 6/1/11 9:56pm Frisco Kid:

I used to have the original issue of that Crispy Ambulance LP - perhaps I still do?
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:00pm Dave B:

Just checking in!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:01pm Danne D:

woohoo! I have headphones on as I'm in the Starbucks :)
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:01pm Danne D:

  Wed. 6/1/11 10:02pm PhilK:

Coincidentally, I got a new pair of headphones yesterday.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:02pm efd:

Hi Dave!

Frisco Kid, check your collection - maybe it's still there!

Joe, thanks - maybe I can take advantage of the summer Fridays at work and get them in!

Way to go, Danne!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:04pm Danne D:

awesome :) I love when songs do this :)
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:06pm PhilK:

Hey Evan, how about a headphone listening themed show in the future?
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:07pm Danne D:

Themes are more Meghan's department I thought ;)
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:08pm efd:

Interesting idea, Phil! Or maybe a premium...
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:24pm Danne D:

This is a nifty db's song.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:24pm mildred:

my faves!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:25pm Joe D.:

I'm not sure how I feel about the vocals. Is that Stamey or Holsapple?
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:26pm efd:

Neither! It's Mr. Will Rigby.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:28pm Dave B:

Gotta tap out EFD. Til next time, be well!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:29pm efd:

Niters DB!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:34pm Stevel:

Kvelertak might be my new, favorite Scandanavian import. Now, if I could only spell their name without looking at it three times.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:37pm Danne D:

I don't smoke, but gotta admit there was something cool about the way Bun E Carlos would have the cigarette just dangle there while playing
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:38pm Danne D:

Blood and Satan in the same show for Evan? That's gotta be some sorta first doesn't it?
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:38pm Danne D:

when's doomsday? (aka schedule announcement day?)
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:40pm Beelzebub:

Workin' on it. That Rev. Camping was a piker.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:43pm fleep:

Kvelertak (translating to English as "stranglehold" or "chokehold")
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:45pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & everyone!
Looks like a wonderful archive

@Mildred - Where exactly are you? Hope all is well.

@Beelzebub - cue Dilla, or 10cc?
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:46pm Beelzebub:

Your call, babe!

As for me, I'm in need of some restraint.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:48pm Danne D:

Hiya Holly! Things better in your world this evening? :)
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:49pm cheri:

danne-- i hope that evan will still be here during the summer cause evan kicks ass!!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:50pm Beelzebub:

speaking of in need of some restraint...
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:51pm Paulie B:

Yup, Obits on Terre T's show on Saturday. Times New VIking next month.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:55pm Danne D:

Me too cheri.

Anyhow, I'll be in the car for the rest of the show - heading home to watch the probable hockey overtime. Go Canucks!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:55pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show as always Evan! Take care everyone!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:56pm Danne D:

Never mind - looks like the Canucks scored - 19 seconds left. Still likely to head out soon.
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:56pm I X Key!:

We'll miss you when you're not here, Evan!!!!!!!
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:57pm Beelzebub:

i nudged the puck just a tad. YW
  Wed. 6/1/11 10:58pm cheri:

  Wed. 6/1/11 11:00pm cheri:

evan g'night!!!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:01pm Stevel:

So, any mad, genetic scientists want to reanimate the Renegades? I'd pitch in a few bucks and a Bunsen burner or two for the project.
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:02pm efd:

goodnight Cheri! See you back here in five minutes I bet!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:03pm Holly in NC:

My inner world is at peace, Danne, thanks for asking, but my exterior being is melting in this ridiculous heat wave. Beelzebub must be practising here - B, I *am* sorry about Scotty, yeesh!

Oh, yay Renegades! ;-)
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:04pm Beelzebub:

might as well face it, she's addicted to funk.
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:09pm Joe B:

can't believe I bought both Renegades singles at the record fair last year and never played them! In my "to listen" pile from about the last 8 fairs!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:10pm VY:

efd nails the Toy Boat - what CAN'T efd do?
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:21pm efd:

Joe, I didn't even realize they had been released before the fair!

VY- I'm just hoping no one records a song called "red leather yellow leather."
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:24pm Beelzebub:

I should have let the Beach Boys record "Sue Sells Sea Shells By The Sea Shore"
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:25pm Adam in Portland:

Motorik: what's your price for flight? Hey, EFD, great show!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:26pm Stevel:

"When a fox is in the bottle where the tweetle beetles battle with their paddles in a puddle on a noodle-eating poodle, THIS is what they call...
...a tweetle beetle noodle poodle bottled paddled muddled duddled fuddled wuddled fox in socks, sir!"
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:31pm Holly in NC:

New Beasties an awesome surprise
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:34pm Julie:

Donna Summer!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:38pm Stevel:

I cannot and will not go to sleep until this show is over.

(and then I will pull archives of Heros and Villans, because that show sounds AWEESOME! Then on to the Rev. HH interview in the AM.)

I'm exhausted!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:39pm efd:

Steve, I'm exhausted just from reading your comment! But I appreciate you staying up til the end of my show.

Hi Julie!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:39pm Adam in Portland:

R.I.P. Trav Criscola.
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:41pm Julie:

hey there Evan!
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:46pm DJ TM5 / Pete:

the song with the baby sample, was it cute leper?
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:47pm DJ TM5 / Pete:

and ambulance man?
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:47pm Stevel:

Nice, nice, nice.
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:47pm efd:

Ambulance Man was by the Cute Lepers, although I have to admit I didn't notice a baby sample.
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:49pm DJ TM5 / Pete:

I just realized something. My tuner was not picking up 91.1 It was actually picking up WNYC. :(
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:51pm efd:

aha! I didn't think I heard a baby sample in anything I played. :)

Adam, yeah, so sad about Trav. He wasn't playing with them when they came through here the last time but it was still a shock to hear that news.
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:51pm WNYC:

  Wed. 6/1/11 11:52pm Noah:

Is this Brausepoter?
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:53pm 12539:

  Wed. 6/1/11 11:58pm 12539:

I wonder if Adam Warrock will patch the theme song if the Time for the Funk ever gets shifted...
  Wed. 6/1/11 11:59pm (2 x 2) + (3 x 3) Vixens:

Thanks for the week off, after last week's workout. But we haven't broken up with you *yet*, you know <3
