  Wed. 7/13/11 9:05pm Frisco Kid:

Welcome EFD! Jigsaw is brightening my day. Never heard anything other than "Sky High" before....
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:09pm efd:

Hey, Frisco! That's EXACTLY why I played Jigsaw!

Greeting, Greeting!
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:18pm Kat:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:20pm kate:

yo yo that was great! i need that 7"
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:23pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan! 'yo yo' so reminded me of 'I wanna be a cowboy', - looking at the date I guess the Frankies came first! I'm with Kate - must find :-)
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:26pm Stevel:

Love this song. I'm gonna listen to it till i, well, uh, you know.
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:26pm efd:

hi Kate, Kat & Holly! Yes, "Yo Yo" is a shoulda-been classic from my youth! :)

Hey Stevel, thanks for listening/commenting
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:27pm Holly in NC:

Yes..I only have the demo version (future wife)- how does one get official?
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:40pm Marmalade Kitty:

evening efd! Nice to hear you,
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:40pm kate:

Thanks evan and ebay! Yo yo is now mine!
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:41pm Frisco Kid:

Wow. This Jigsaw album cover is hideous!

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:42pm efd:

Hence my comment to the store owner!

Kate, nice work! And good evening, M. Kitty - nice to read you!
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:43pm efd:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:44pm Julie:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:50pm Julie:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:51pm Julie:

MK I REALLY want to. It depends what the money situation is
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:52pm efd:

Julie, the singles in the first set are mine but Shark? (and nearly all the new ones I play) are from the new bin.
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:53pm Julie:

I've only just got into the habit of checking out the LP's will have to check the 45's more often.
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:56pm 12539:

Was that a mellotron?
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:56pm cheri:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:57pm Julie:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:58pm Pete in LA:

I'm old.

ps. Come on. come on. Rescue Me.
  Wed. 7/13/11 9:58pm Julie:

  Wed. 7/13/11 9:59pm Stevel:

As of tomorrow it will have been over for me for about 20 years.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:00pm Randy in NC:

@12539, Sounded like one to me...
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:00pm Julie:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:02pm cheri:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:02pm glenn:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:03pm Julie:

Nope..20s would be just fine thank you
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:04pm Stevel:

Pete: Too late, we're already dead.

Excuse me while I move towards that bright light at the end of that tunnel.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:04pm glenn:

why oh why oh why would anybody want to be a teenager again? that's just stupid.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:04pm Helpful:

It's ok, cheri! You still type like a thirteen-year-old! :-)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:05pm BSI:

mid-40s here, still lookin' for my carrot cake & wondering if I'm supposed to have my sh*t together yet.....
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:06pm Julie:

18 or 19 maaaaybe..I wouldn't want to go younger
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:06pm glenn:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:07pm mark:

Love this McCartney song. Cheesy video is good too with the all Paul band.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:07pm efd:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:07pm Julie:

@Glenn me toooo! I love Canada
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:08pm glenn:

i was 50 in december, evan. still wanna bet?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:08pm efd:

mark, I was so psyched to see this in the new bin! I've been toting the single around for weeks waiting for a good time to play it.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:09pm Holly in NC:

All time fave video here:
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:09pm glenn:

got any hidden cameras?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:09pm Pete in LA:

I remember being 50, and the offer still stands killing me-wise.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:09pm efd:

glenn: Yup.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:10pm Randy in NC:

I bet I've got it on you all...
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:11pm mildred:

yay! yay! yay!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:11pm Buddy:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:11pm cheri:

ohhh i forgot to ask you julie,,how was the london weather a couple weeks back??
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:11pm glenn:

don't be coy, randy. spill it.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:12pm Julie:

I love the lyrics of this
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:12pm Helpful:

sorry, whippersnappers. 53.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:13pm Julie:

@Cheri it was sunny and warm, actually HOT on the last day there. and dark and cloudy in Manchester, as is fitting
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:13pm Julie:

Aw c'mon none of us are in Old Codger territory yet
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:14pm London:

You get your tan from standing in the English rain.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:14pm mildred:

Now I'm really happy- Bob is my hero.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:14pm Stevel:

Getting older does beat the alternative.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:14pm glenn:

sometimes i think robert pollard thinks he's roky erikson reincarnated. not that that's a bad thing.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:14pm Julie:

robert pollard? Is he related to Michael J.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:15pm BSI:

I'll take London weather ANY TIME over this swampy soul-killing summer nonsense rat now.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:15pm Marmalade Kitty:

Julie, how are your Manc snaps? I'd love to see them!?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:15pm Holly in NC:

@glenn - I was thinking Richard Butler - also not a bad thing imho!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:15pm cheri:

well i have split,,i'm sorry i was havin so much fun,, thanks for your company evan & julie see ya all next week,, g'nite!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:15pm Randy in NC:

The first real "concert" I ever saw was Mountain at the Boston Tea Party New Years Eve 1969/70, the same night Hendrix played at the Fillmore East. I was in 9th grade...
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:16pm Scott:

Haven't kept up with the Bob stuff over the last couple of years...I think I have to buy this...like it
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:16pm glenn:

who knows? michael j. is a great actor. though.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:16pm Julie:

oooh MK I will send you some
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:16pm E.L.:

At this rate, I don't know whether to call this late period Robert Pollard or not. He's on a roll either way.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:17pm mildred:

I wish he was my neighbor.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:17pm cheri:

but getting old stinks am i right efd & julie??
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:18pm efd:

Hey E.L.! I think it just has to be "post-GBV Robert Pollard" for now.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:18pm Julie:

like he said, beats the alternative
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:18pm glenn:

we have a friend here from england right now. her first concert was curved air in 1972. now THAT'S cool.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:19pm Julie:

I would like to have seen the Doors..that's about as far as I'd like to go back..
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:19pm Randy in NC:

efd, a nice interview with Peter Holsapple in the local weekly paper bit.ly/iIMIv4
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:19pm glenn:

mine was b.b. king in 1974.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:19pm Julie:

Ok now I have to look up Curved Air
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:20pm Pete in LA:

I saw Mountain at Kean College. It was their last show (I think)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:20pm E.L.:

Well put, sir. I'm seriously enjoying it regardless of labels, and as always I'm seriously enjoying your show.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:20pm Randy in NC:

I saw Curved Air open for someone, can't remember who, at the Fillmore East sometime around then.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:20pm Holly in NC:

Assuming being dragged to Liberace at an early age doesn't count, first 'real' concert = Rush on my 16th birthday. Ramones first 'cool' show shortly thereafter. I STILL am fond of classic Rush, sorry efd, I'm fully aware of your antipathy :-)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:22pm Julie:

Oh man how did I miss Curved Air!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:22pm cheri:

i hope you guys have a great week evan & julie
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:22pm Pete in LA:

Julie: did you seen those fotos of the women's bathroom from a recent Rush concert?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:23pm glenn:

rush would play every new year's eve at maple leaf gardens in toronto for years. i never went. i hate them. sorry, holly. (and clay)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:23pm Pete in LA:

^ I meant Holly:
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:23pm Holly in NC:

@Pete - I (Holly) did :-)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:24pm Julie:

oh man I had McCartney II when I was little
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:24pm glenn:

get curved air and air conditioning. top notch prog.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:25pm Danne D:

Hey guys, dang did I miss cheri's birthday cake?!? Oh well.

Great show Evan :) Great to hear the new Smithereens btw.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:25pm Julie:

@Glenn yes I think I must!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:25pm Marmalade Kitty:

Thanks julie!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:25pm 12539:

@Julie: "had?" Isn't it in storage with, what was it, Shaun Cassidy?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:26pm London II:

spend three summers in a row here without a summer and you'll kill someone for hot and humid anything
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:26pm glenn:

they'll be in the library, julie.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:26pm Randy in NC:

The things I most remember about the Mountain show 1) the combination of cigarette and reefer smoke, patchouli, and the English Leather cologne my stepbrother was wearing, 2) they were so loud your face vibrated, 3) the band giving live phone updates about the Hendrix show.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:27pm glenn:

ummmmmm, face vibrations?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:28pm Julie:

@12539 yep in storage I think
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:28pm Pete in LA:

we caught leslie west coming out of the limo - my friend asked him "how are you going to play?" he shot back, "Like shit"
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:29pm Julie:

Leslie West? Is he still around?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:29pm London:

shoulda said "with my fingers, a-hole"
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:29pm Danne D:

If you haven't heard Keili's show, you're really missing out! :)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:29pm Danne D:

If you haven't heard Julie's show, you're really missing out! :)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:30pm Randy in NC:

@London II - come to the US Southeast... It's been about 100 in most places, even at the beach.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:30pm Julie:

@Danne oh great now I owe you TWO checks
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:30pm glenn:

i thought leslie shuffled off, but i could be wrong.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:30pm Pete in LA:

I was referring to Mountain @ Kean College, 1976?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:31pm cheri:

please forgive julie but tell me but is getting old a drag??
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:32pm Pete in LA:

Leslie West (born Leslie Weinstein) still around via wiki
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:32pm Holly in NC:

Now that McCartney II has been given the revisionist thumbs up, I think it's only a matter of time before at least 1 Rush lp gets a similar critical reassessment (and not the covers one)!
Heck , look what the pfork people tried to do with Journey. I *despise* Journey.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:32pm efd:

Leslie's still around -- he actually just had a partial leg amputation a few weeks ago resulting from diabetes complications.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:32pm glenn:

how the fuck would she know?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:33pm 12539:

Being a teenager forever would be a drag.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:33pm cheri:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:34pm Julie:

this is rockin!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:35pm glenn:

actually, i think rush gets a reasonable amount of critical acclaim, and i won't deny that they're good musicians. i just hate the pomposity, and geddy's voice.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:36pm efd:

Ironic that "Drop Out" is dropping out.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:37pm Stevel:

Word. But it adds nicely to that 'hey, I think the ceiling might cave in' effect.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:38pm Holly in NC:

i really like this charles albright, drops and all
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:38pm Sybil:

Can I tune in and turn on before I drop out?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:38pm efd:

btw, I just engaged in a bit of revisionist history (i.e., editing) with one of my earlier comments because I misread who it was from and unwittingly suggested that someone is older than they are.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:39pm Sybil:

Or maybe that should be, turn on and tune in...

Clearly I did not do enough drugs in college.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:40pm Marmalade Kitty:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:41pm Sybil:

<obscure cultural reference which dates me>
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:42pm Holly in NC:

Dammit! I just opened the back door to let the cats out (now that it's *slightly* under 100 F) - & a huge palmetto bug flew inside. For those if you not from the US Southeast, "palmetto bug" is an uber-polite euphemism for FRIGGIN FLYING COCKROACH. Back after I kill the bugger.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:42pm Julie:

LOL Evan said I was 50...I guess I been in the sun too much :D
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:42pm Julie:

Holly ewwwwwww
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:43pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:44pm Sybil:

I thought palmetto bug was a euphemism for FRIGGIN JETLINER-SIZED FLYING COCKROACH?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:44pm Julie:

great now I'm gonna have palmetto nightmares
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:44pm Danne D:

All this age stuff has got me wondering what I wanna be when I grow up.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:45pm efd:

I'm still mortified. Glenn's age-revealing comment was next to another one from Julie, and I was reading too fast.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:46pm Holly in NC:

@Honking - Prepare to meet yr maker!
@Sybil - you are correct
@Julie - Indeed. Now ask me about cave crickets
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:46pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

We don't suck nearly enough blood from sleeping people to kill anyone, jeez. A guy's gotta eat.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:47pm Sybil:

Danne D, I wonder the same thing.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:48pm Kat:

Holly - palmetto bugs AAAUGH. Are cave crickets the same as camelback crickets - the ones that jump sideways? I lived in a house in Carrboro for close to a year that was infested with those creatures.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:48pm Stevel:

My KIDS wonder what I'm going to do when I grow up. (Best to keep 'em guessing, I say.)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:48pm Randy in NC:

Yeah, at least the palmetto bugs prefer to be outside in the woods, while the classic NYC appartment roach prefers your kitchen counter.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:50pm glenn:

okay. what about cave crickets?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:51pm glenn:

it's okay, evan. i regularly mortify myself.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:52pm Holly in NC:

@Kat -
Yes. The crawl space/garage of my house here in Durham is similarly infested, such that our (delicious) home brew is called Cave Cricket Cooler.
@Glenn - honking biG bugs that are akin to JUMPING cockroaches.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:52pm Marmalade Kitty:

That was the fastest hour ever!?omg 3:50AM must be off to bed! Great Show Evan. Night folks
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:53pm Danne D:

@sybil didn't realize you were wondering about what I'll be when I grow up :)
Separate note:
lol - I think that's the closest a certain notorious someone will get to a shoutout from EFD tonight btw
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:53pm Danne D:

g'night Kitty!!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:54pm glenn:

holly - i will take palmetto bugs over blackflies any day, hands down.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:54pm Stevel:

Can't use a bat on blackflies.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:54pm Holly in NC:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:55pm efd:

thanks M. Kitty, goodnight!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:55pm cheri:

evan i'm back just to ask you could you PLEASE play a special belated birthday tune for me, i think i deserve it ty evan!!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:55pm Kat:

Stevel - Happy birthday in two hours or so!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:55pm glenn:

hey, do randy in nc and holly in nc know each other?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:55pm Randy in NC:

Camel crickets are creepy, they certainly don't bring up thoughts of Jiminy.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:56pm Stevel:

Thank you Kat: I'm trying to decide what sort of mid-life crisis to have. Adultery is too complicated and a shiny-new sports car is too expensive.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:57pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

from one bug to another...

cheri's motto: "too much is never enough"
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:57pm glenn:

yes. blackflies. come to northern ontario in the summer and prepare to die. invisible evil with wings.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:57pm Stevel:

M Kitty is a trooper!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:57pm Danne D:

  Wed. 7/13/11 10:57pm Holly in NC:

we do not (yet).

@Honking - so far you are winning this battle.
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:58pm Danne D:

it's been a while since I've heard Evan play Harry. Color me excited!

Btw, was that a Jersey "How You Doin?" from Harry there?!?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:58pm Stevel:

That swingin' show!

Holly: Get the shotgun. What could go wrong?
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:59pm Danne D:

Harry is like a belated birthday gift for me :)
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:59pm Kat:

I'm your age, and for me it's the continuing crisis :) I'm divorced/no kids/crappy job so there is not much incentive to behave appropriately
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:59pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

My reproductive powers ensure that my offspring and relatives live to torture you another day.

Have a nice day!
  Wed. 7/13/11 10:59pm Kat:

(the above was to Stevel)
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:00pm Stevel:

Kat: I like your bad attitude. Appropriate can be overrated.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:01pm Holly in NC:

@Kat - a kindred spirit!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:01pm glenn:

honking would quail with fear when confronted by a swarm of blackflies. in fact, (he says) native americans are called redskins because they would cover themselves with red ochre to keep the blackflies away. also mosquitoes. but mostly blackflies.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:02pm Danne D:

@kat lol I was wondering how you knew how old I was

@stevel happy impending birthday!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:03pm glenn:

i guess deep woods off hadn't been invented yet.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:03pm Kat:

Holly - I assume that homebrew is brown and hoppy?
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:04pm Holly in NC:

BTW, Honking, can you explain why my cats ignore you, while reveling in killing & presenting to me an endless stream of cute 'n' fuzzy mammals?

@Kat - yes!!!! :-) !!!!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:05pm Sybil:

I'm wondering how anyone here knows how old anyone else is. I'm not even sure how old I am.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:05pm Stevel:

Thanks Danne D: The hour doth approach. I think I'm going to celebrate on Sunday by sitting around with friends, drinking, eating and talking. (So much for my crazy mid-life rebellion.)

GOD I love this song. Cynics!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:05pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

@Holly: I taste HORRIBLE. Thank evolution.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:06pm Sybil:

The Left Banke still exist?
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:07pm Holly in NC:


Switching to gin.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:08pm Sybil:

Wise, Holly. Here's hoping Honking doesn't like gin.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:08pm Stevel:

Honking heralds the beginning of the end times. Get thyself right with thy Lord.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:08pm glenn:

i recommend the victoria gin, if you can get it, yummmmmmmmmmeeeee.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:09pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

I'd prefer vodka, slurp slurp.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:09pm Randy in NC:

Holly, crank the AC up and Honking will slow down. That and the wine...
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:10pm 12539:

I once had a roommate whose epic battle with a palmetto bug only ended when he sucked it into a vacuum cleaner and stuck the hose into the shower drain as a safety measure.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:11pm Stevel:

Uh oh, too old to stay up later. Catching the last hour on the archive tomorrow. Night all.

[noting creative ways to murder large insects]
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:12pm glenn:

11:11. make a wish.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:12pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

@12539: Ah yes, dear old great-uncle Bruce. He won the palmetto olypmics breast stroke event.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:12pm 12539:

Happy Birthday Stevel.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:13pm Holly in NC:

Beefeater it is.
Randy, not to sound pathetic, I only have a wee window unit in my bedroom. Problem here is laptop is brightest light in house.
Evan, witness my dedication!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:13pm Danne D:

Thanks for the shoutout! :)
Skirkie is moving up the ranks too btw.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:14pm Holly in NC:

Happy Birthday Stevel!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:16pm Danne D:

Evan is like the Pope of WFMU giving out dispensations now.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:19pm Wiki Pete:


Original guitarist Jeff Winfield died of complications from pneumonia on June 13, 2009, at age 60.

Original members Tom Finn and George Cameron reformed The Left Banke in March 2011. They appeared live at Joe's Pub in New York City, on March 5 and 6 to a sold out audience. In April 2011, Tom Finn revealed in a Facebook posting that he had reformed the group, with two shows planned for July in New York City.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:21pm Holly in NC:

Oh, thank you, Evan!!! White Hills will be a perfect soundtrack to my (hopefully) murderous exploits of the next coming minutes...
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:21pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

You wanna piece o' this? Huh? Bring it.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:26pm osvi:

White Hills, man. Gonna go see them in SF next month.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:28pm Kat:

osvi: GREAT live act.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:29pm efd:

Osvi, I'll second Kat's comment - they are AMAZING live! Can't wait to see them tomorrow.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:30pm Holly in NC:

Honking - I will if you come out where I can see you! (gauntlet thrown)
Cats have returned & appear mildly concerned re *my* lack of hunting prowess.
Actually more bemused than concerned. Cats.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:31pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

You'll never take me alive, copper. Top o' the world, ma!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:32pm Randy in NC:

efd- Maybe this is a dumb idea... Since there seem to be many who listen from afar, maybe WFMU could work out some way to give away tickets from elsewere on the Midnight Ticket Bubble Bath?
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:33pm Kat:

efd, despite my residence in Thrill Jockey territory, it was their live set on your show that turned me on to White Hills :)
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:33pm VY:

I would like a ticket TO elsewhere
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:35pm Randy in NC:

@VY, That too.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:36pm Holly in NC:

@Randy & Evan - Yes Evan, remember when I missed the Jacuzzi Boys?
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:36pm Sybil:

I'd love a ticket to ride.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:37pm Holly in NC:

beep beep m beep beep yeah!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:37pm efd:

Randy, I think the only problem with that is that the non-NJ/NY listeners are so dispersed there wouldn't really be a critical mass in any one location.

Kat, very gratifying to hear that you found White Hills via their live set here!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:39pm Randy in NC:

Yeah, you're probably right.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:40pm cheri:

evan thnx for another killer show!!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:41pm VY:

so proud to live, so proud to die
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:42pm efd:

you're welcome, cheri.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:44pm Holly in NC:

Honking - I have to go in the kitchen...'cuz I haven't had dinner yet...I'm going to be putting chicken & ham & swiss cheese out on the counter....and some really ripe local heirloom tomatoes....some nice pickles all the way from NYC....some kinda over the hill verdulaga that I bet you'd find appealing....
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:45pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

A battle of wits, eh? Are you fully armed? :-P
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:48pm Vanessa:

I love this song! Thanks for the tickets.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:50pm Randy in NC:

efd- The Outsets
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:50pm Danne D:

Hope that one of those WFMU Meet-ups is of the Evan Funk Davies variety (or as I tweeted, the Gathering of the Funkalos) :)
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:52pm Sybil:

What Danne said!

Wishing all a good night! (I'm listening to the end but want to get that in.)
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:54pm efd:

goodnight & thanks, Sybil!

Randy, yes, the Outsets as well!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:54pm Holly in NC:

Have I ever mentioned that I met Dan Melchior because he saw me bring up 'fmu on my laptop when I was eating lunch @ his (at the time) place of employment?
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:57pm Kat:

Holly: cool! I have a similar story re Ira Kaplan and a WFMU t-shirt.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:57pm Holly in NC:

Honking - to be continued.....

Thank you for a GREAT show, Evan!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:57pm efd:

That's a great story! He is a staunch WFMU fan/supporter.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:58pm 12539:

Thanks for another great show, Mr Funk.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:59pm efd:

you're welcome! Thank YOU (and you, and you, and everyone else!) for listening!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:59pm Kat:

is this still The Paperhead? this is great.
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:59pm Honking Big Palmetto Bug:

continued if you can catch me!
  Wed. 7/13/11 11:59pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show Evan! :) Have a good night everyone!

Btw, loved the story Holly - my Woof Moo shirt routinely brings the comments :)
  Thu. 7/14/11 12:01am Holly in NC:

Honking - Actually, NOT continued if I can catch you :-)
  Thu. 7/14/11 12:08am Honking Big Palmetto Bug:
