  Wed. 9/14/11 9:09pm Stevel:

Again, another favorite band. Damn you Cute Lepers!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:10pm Julie:

the real test of your hotel's internet connection...how WFMU online plays :(
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:10pm Stevel:

Oh. My. God. I LOVE this song, and this band. Just call me fan-boy tonight.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:11pm Stevel:

Julie: There ARE other hotels, eh?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:12pm Julie:

if it gets really bad I can try on my DROID
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:13pm Julie:

how come all the Bauhaus covers sound like Bowie?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:13pm blackgreen13:

@Julie: got an iphone yesterday, the app works phenomenal
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:14pm Julie:

@Black yes very nice to hsve!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:14pm G:

Bowie and Bolan came out of the same general musical environment in late 60sd/early 70s UK
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:15pm G:

"Telegram Sam" is Bolan
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:15pm Julie:

Yes but Bolan doesn't sound that much like Bowie, the Bauhaus Bowie & Bolan covers sound like Bowie
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:16pm Julie:

I forget which Bowie cover I played, but it sounded so much like Bowie it was kinda pointless
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:17pm PB:

Wasn't Bolan a huge star in the UK in the early 70s who never really caught on in North America.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:17pm Kat:

Oh, they were saying "spread your WINGS". I thought...um, never mind.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:19pm Julie:

Bolan was ENORMOUS..but rather small
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:19pm efd:

Hi everyone! I'm ALREADY behind on the comments, but I'm happy to see so many this early in the show. Thanks for listening!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:19pm Julie:

He even had his own TV show not long before he died
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:20pm Julie:

And every time I'm listening to T. Rex in my mini I get the willies!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:20pm seang:

the 9-5 grind must be broken-I will break it
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:20pm Randy in NC:

@Kat same here...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:21pm Julie:

@EFD What, like you're doing anything else in there?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:21pm G:

Bowie and Bolan have plenty in common. "Changes" and several Bolan tunes were on the charts and radio when I lived in England in 71-72, and were seen at that time as comparable, but on a finer-grained level distinctive, examples of glam.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:22pm Kat:

@Randy glad it wasn't just me!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:23pm Julie:

@G I am talking about vocally, and I don't find them that similar.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:24pm 12539:

@Julie, you played Bauhaus' version of Ziggy.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:25pm Julie:

@12539 I thought it might be that. They did another Bowie cover as well. I forget which. Thanks :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:26pm john:

Brilliant band, Au Pairs. Sadly, always seemed to clear the room when I put the record on back in the day...of course, when this came out, I roomed with someone whose favorite groop was (excuse the non-family-hour-friendly expression) Marshall Tucker Band. Ah, 1980.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27pm Obvious:

Equal but different like Bolan & Bowie
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27pm T-Zero:

I don't think I ever heard au pairs before. I really liked this.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27pm PB:

Speaking of Bowie and covers, is Pin-Ups any good? My favorite Bowie era is early 70s, especially Aladdin Sane.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27pm Ajax:

AU PAIRS and MTB both rule. It's obvious they heard it in a love song.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27pm Stevel:

If you haven't seen Au Pairs in Urrgh, a Music War...

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27pm Julie:

@EFD do you carry one of those nifty 7" cases with you every week?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:28pm G:

Yes, and people can say the glam bands Sweet and Slade have nothing to do with each otrher because the singers sound different, but that is the intellectual preference of being a "splitter" (who emphasizes distinctions) rather than a "lumper" (who emphasizew similarities).

In the early 70s, when I read Melody Maker, New Musical Express, etc., weekly, Bolan was slagged off plenty because of his teen-girl following. Because Bowie's following was like that, he got more respect. After his death, music writers rewrote history to claim they'd appreciated Bolan more than they actually had in the 71-73 period.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:28pm Julie:

@PB everything I hear on Pinups disappoints me :(
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:28pm efd:

@Julie, yes I do!

@john, update on your canine oncology patient, please!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:30pm Ike:

@Julie@9:10, is that w/Flash or 128k? If 128k, always try trading down to Flash first. Sounds much better than the other low-bandwidth streams.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:31pm Kat:

God bless the Flash stream, it's the only thing that consistently works on my crap work computer.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:31pm seang:

don't get hung up on the statistics
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:31pm PB:

@Julie, thanks. I have generally not heard good things about that album. Guess that's why I never bought it.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:31pm Julie:

I need one of those cases! @Ike yeah I am using the Flash..it still buffers a bit.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:33pm Julie:

@PB I haven't heard the whole thing, but every time I'm like Oh Bowie's got a cover of that I listen and I'm like...ugh... I think he kind of reverted to his Newley style when he did that stuff
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:34pm Justsheanon:

Loved the last two tracks, was seriously close to mellowing out.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:35pm seang:

Friday on my Mind is really great on Pinups
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:36pm Julie:

@Seang ahh. I haven't heard that one yet, I'll check it out thanks
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:36pm john:

Evan--thanks for asking! Here's the (ahem) short answer. Third infusion of chemo yesterday, so he's kind of a logy dogy for a few days (but listening to the show!), though better than you or I would handle carboplatin. Did some scans that appeared clear, but still out for expert opinion. Biopsy of one other thing that's the open question. Surgical recovery complete..paws crossed!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:37pm Danielle:

Listening from Montreal and very much digging your show. Keeping me sane during intense article reading!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:37pm Julie:

awww poor doggie :(
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38pm seang:

I used to think Bauhaus was so spooky in High School
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:39pm blackgreen13:

@seang: sky's gone out!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:40pm Julie:

Texas is on fire :(
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:41pm Ignore Function:

I first heard of T Rex from that Bauhaus cover.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:41pm john:

Thanks Julie....he's coming along quite nicely, we think/hope! Especially considering the prognosis had we not done all this...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:42pm Julie:

I heard of T. Rex from other people's songs
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:44pm PB:

Can someone please explain to me why Roxy Music is always referred to as a "glam" band.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:45pm Julie:

I bet funambulist is fun to say
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:46pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans!

It's sad about Texas Julie :( But there are lessons to be learned - like don't cut the fire budget in some misguided effort for "savings"

Hope your doggy feels better soon John!

Greetings to our friend north of the border. Danielle is a very nice name :)

Hi to the ton of other commenters as well :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:47pm G:

FWIW, from the UK angle T Rex were absolutely the biggest thing going in pop in 1971-72, and Bowie's emergence after several years of struggling came in the wake of T Rex; "Changes" was rising on the charts in early 72, but Bolan had had maybe 4 top singles by then.

T Rex had one number ten or so hit here in the US (Bang a Gong), but 3 or 4 top-three singles in the UK every calendar year in the early 70s. Bowie eclipsed Bolan as he gradually became yesterday's news in the 72-74 period.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:47pm efd:

@Julie, just you wait!

@john, thanks for the update - continued best wishes for a speedy doggie recovery.

@Danielle, thanks and welcome! Always happy to have new listeners on board!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:47pm Julie:

@Danne Of course Danielle is cool she's in Montreal, one of the best places EVER.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:47pm cheri:

i always look forward to wednesday night!! evan you're the funk master!!! hiya julie & danne,,
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:47pm Randy in NC:

Saw GBV this weekend. Robert Pollard said it was their last show...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:48pm Danne D:

Hard to believe baseball season is almost over :( Doing my best to catch that pesky Aharon, but I fear my late charge might be too little and too late :(
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:49pm Danne D:

Agree with that Julie :) It's been too long since I've been on Rue Ste. Catherine

Hiya Cheri!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:49pm seang:

always wanted to go to Montreal, I lived in Portland,ME and now Boston-gotta go soon
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:50pm mildred:

Evan, You're really spinning up my alley this evening. Love everything thus far!!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:50pm Danne D:

sean, when you go, make sure you check out the basillica!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:50pm Julie:

I'm confused now. David Bowie sang for Bauhaus? Robert Palmer beat up Marc Bolan? The UK press were much more interested in Bryan Ferry in lipstick? It is too much for my little brain to follow.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:51pm G:

PB: Again, there are distinctions as well as similarities, but Bolan, Bowie, Sweet, and Roxy all had lead singers who were programmatically not macho-style rock singers. Some people who were there at the time took that as a gay subtext, or satiric camp, etc., but it was definitely not your hard-rock macho singing style. Bolan was the first to do that with huge success in 71, but he had some forebears in folk-psychedia ofin the late 60s, which was Bolan's original pre-glam "genre".
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:51pm Julie:

@Seang GO GO GO Everyone I know adores Montreal. EFD went not long ago, so did Meghan McKee. WFMU people love Montreal!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:51pm sisiati:

keresek valakit aki tudja mit jelent az hogy URH
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:52pm seang:

Hank IV rocks!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:52pm cheri:

the reason that i"m here is because my plans have been changed,,evan,,julie i just love bowie!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:52pm Danielle:

Montreal is the best. Don't want to bark up my own tree, but you all may want to check out www.cjlo.com, campus radio station here.. I have a show on Thursdays 10-midnight EST- Runny Noise. WFMU is my go-to at home though.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:52pm Julie:

Bolan was much more Donovan-esque in his early years, and Bowie was more "pop" in the original sense
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:53pm Julie:

Cool, Danielle..I will have to check that out. And great name!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:53pm Randy in NC:

@G as I recall Bolan/T Rex was originally Tyranosaurus Rex, a folk outfit.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:53pm seang:

yer killin me--alright I'm goin-be an expat-maybe it's the town I've been looking for all this time
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:54pm G:

Yes to both Randy and Julie, as best I know....
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:54pm PB:

@G. Thanks. Very informative and interesting explanation. Bottom line, I guess, more of it had to do with the "look", rather than the music.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:54pm Julie:

@Randy I still haven't heard anything that sounds anything LIKE Tyrannosaurus Rex did
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:55pm Sean:

Bauhaus' cover of Ziggy sounds like Bowie because at the time everybody kept saying, oh everything Bauhaus does sounds just like Bowie, so they said, oh yeah, we'll give you something that sounds just like Bowie, so they did an extra-Bowie-ish version of one of Bowie's signature songs, and it became a huge hit (in the UK). Their cover of Telegram Sam sounds like Bowie because everything Bauhaus does sounds like Bowie.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:55pm Julie:

Bolan had a couple of earlier projects..um..Toby Tyler..and I think another name as well, one of them had Tony Visconti in the band as well.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:56pm alberto:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:56pm blackgreen13:

At the time, Bowie came across as pretty strange... I don't suppose unless you were there at the time how strange he seemed. There was a lot of mythology. that meant a lot to us back when
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:56pm cheri:

julie don't you just love evan & bowie?? i do!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:56pm G:

But teens in the UK in 72-73 (I was one, and talked with plenty of them) saw Bowie as "flash" or gay and hence glam, not straight pop or straight rock. Certainly not the macho singing style of glam-hardrock fusion groups, such as most prominently Slade.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:56pm PB:

Speaking of sound-alikes, I know nothing about them but at least one of the vocalists in Fleet Foxes sounds exactly like Graham Nash.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:57pm Sean:

Bowie and Bolan are alike in the same way that the Beatles and Brian Wilson are alike.

That makes Gary Glitter Jan & Dean. I'm not sure what it makes Steve Harley or Roxy Music...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:57pm Julie:

Someone left a Bowie record (changes) at my house when I was a kid and I was like EWWWW..then I listened to it.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:57pm Danne D:

Look at Danielle all with her own show and stuff :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:58pm Randy in NC:

Julie, are you going to see the Humans?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:58pm Julie:

So Montreal has good radio? We can all move there now!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:58pm Danielle:

sorry, don't know the etiquette for writing on these message board things.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:58pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD, can you say "A Happy How Do You Do" with that crazy echo effect?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:58pm Julie:

@Randy I think so. I keep forgetting to buy my ticket!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:59pm cheri:

julie thats one of my my favorite bowie tunes "changes"
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00pm Randy in NC:

@Julie, you must report back if you go.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00pm Danielle:

CKUT in Montreal is great too. And CISM.. for those of you who speak French
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00pm Julie:

@Cheri I think that means you need to hear more Bowie
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00pm Sean:

Tony Visconti produced the four Tyrannosaurus Rex albums, and the first few T. Rex albums. He played bass and produced 'The Man Who Sold The World" for Bowie, and, well, a bunch of his albums after that :p Don't think he ever actually played in a band with Bolan.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00pm Julie:

@Danielle what is your favorite record store there? I always come home with TONS of stuff from Mont-Royal
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00pm Danne D:

That's @folder_rock on twitter for forgetful folks like me :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:01pm Danne D:

:( I wanna go to Montreal now
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:01pm seang:

Is the rent affordable in Montreal?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:01pm Danielle:

Atom Heart on Sherbrooke and St. Denis. The best.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:02pm Randy in NC:

EFD, did you ever get to see the Bush Tetras back in the day? I always liked to see them.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:02pm Julie:

It was one of those pre-T.Rex projects I thought Tony was the background singer or something
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:02pm mildred:

Well then... enough with the B's from England. What was Doug Gillard channelling with that B side 'cause I liked it a lot & didn't know he had all that dreamy inside him.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:03pm Julie:

i never get sick of this song
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:03pm cheri:

keep on rocking evan!!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:03pm Danielle:

Ha! Yeah, rent is good I think compared to other Canadian cities... anywhere from $300/month to $800
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:03pm Danne D:

When is the record fair this year? It's usually the weekend before election day to totally make it impossible for me to go.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:03pm seang:

yeah Mildred it was like Charlotte Sometimes
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:04pm Danne D:

Is Hurley's Pub still there on Crescent, Danielle? Very fun Irish Pub with live music on two levels.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:04pm Julie:

$300 a month? Even in Canadian money that sounds REALLY good
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:04pm Danne D:

(The clubs that are on Crescent in the opposite direction from Ste. Catherine's tend to frown on hockey jerseys as suitable attire.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:05pm Julie:

I like LAB on Rue Rachel
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:05pm Danne D:

Canadian money is pretty close to par with ours these days, Julie so it's pretty much like $300 in real money ;)
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:05pm Julie:

@Danne weekend before Halloween
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:05pm Pablo:

Damn -- I went out to make coffee and missed "Too Many Creeps"!

  Wed. 9/14/11 10:06pm efd:

@Michael, I will definitely do that in an upcoming mic break!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:07pm Danne D:

Thanks Julie - there's a ghost of a chance I may be able to sneak away from NJ and go for a little while this year.

Have a good night cheri
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:07pm efd:

@Pablo Eddie Money is your consolation prize.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:07pm Danielle:

Hurley's is still there, I don't like Crescent though... P.S. I want your record collection. Thank you thank you thank you for the Bush Tetras
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:07pm Bill:

Eddie "The Tiebreaker" Money - nice!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:08pm Ajax:

E-Money brought down the house with this one on the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk a few weeks ago! I was considering using it as a wedding "First dance" song but it gets too dirty in the breakdown. I said UH!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:08pm efd:

"The Tiebreaker?"

@efd - it's a long story - remind me to tell you someday...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:09pm Alk:

Oh, no. People, people. What's with the Classic Rock? I've heard this song at least 438 times.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:10pm osvi:

How about some White Hills to go with my drive to see White Hills?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:11pm efd:

Bill, I'll look forward to it.

Alk, oh, gosh, sorry to break up three hours of new unsigned little-known acts with a hit from the 70s. You're welcome to tune elsewhere.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:11pm cod:

sounds like They Might Be Giants. and that is not a good thing
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:12pm Danne D:

(Hurley is away from all that other stuff on Crescent - more laid back and friendly vibe - but I'm a sucker for Irish pubs (even though I don't drink)) - Good to know it's still there though :)

I saw Eddie Money play with Grand Funk Railroad a few years ago at like the NC state fair or somesuch. It was a fun show - at this stage of their careers there's a lot more laid back spirit everyone just goes out and has a fun time
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:12pm Stevel:

efd repreSENT!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:12pm Ignore Function:

Glunks Not Dead!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:13pm Danne D:

This FOW tune sorta is like TMBG meets suddenly, tammy!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:14pm Danielle:

I'm out. Thanks for the warm welcome! Have a great rest of show.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:15pm Danne D:

actually I meant Velocity Girl, not Suddenly Tammy but that's splitting hairs.

Have a good night Danielle :) Welcome aboard :) Check out the many other fine shows on FMU - Bon Nuit!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:15pm mildred:

Almost have forgiven myself for passing on Blondie tix tonight, AND don't try to tell me that 'don't lets start' isn't an awesome tune, just like 'baby, hold on' is. don't!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:15pm efd:

thanks Danielle, enjoy the rest of your night!

Osvi, I didn't pull that CD but that's great that you're going to see them! Have you seen them before? They're soooo good live!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:15pm Danielle:

One last fun thing:
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:16pm cheri:

good night evan & julie,,i'll be on vacation next week,,
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:16pm cod:

This sounds like Urge Overkill Lite. And thats not a good thing.
I missed hankIV- now THAT is some ROCK! sf represent!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:17pm ?:

Hi Evan - so glad to be here!
Lively crew tonight!
- I think Bauhaus may have bettered Eno on Third Uncle. Maybe just because I heard Bauhaus first.
@ Randy - did you see anyone else @ Hopscotch?
@Danielle - welcome!
@Julie - hi!
@John - Sending MANY good thoughts to you & your pup. Been there, done that, no fun...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:18pm Holly in NC:

I am "?". But I've lost my Mysterians.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:18pm Danne D:

HI question mark :)
Safe travels, cheri
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:18pm Danne D:

Hi Holly :D
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:19pm Julie:

@Holly! Hi! I am listening tonight from NC as well
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:19pm Julie:

how come there is no pop singer called Mark Question..it seems so obvious
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:20pm Holly in NC:

@Julie - good , er, question! And where are you?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:21pm Danne D:

Sounds to me like you need to develop that persona and put out and album under that name, Julie :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:21pm Danne D:

Mark Question and Mister Ian
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:22pm Danne D:

LOL apparently there is a Mark Question, Julie:
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:22pm Randy in NC:

At Hopscotch I saw the outdoor stuff, Guided By Voices, Drive By Truckers, Rosebuds, Superchunk, and The Flaming Lips. I really wanted to see Julianna Barwick and The Swans, but the wristbands were sold out.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:23pm Julie:

@Holly Kill Devil Hills!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:23pm Danne D:

Mark Question is one of the very few artists not to be found in the FMU archives
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:24pm Danne D:

The Wristbands would be a great name for a band
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:24pm Randy in NC:

@Holly, did you go and see anyone?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:24pm Julie:

@Danne does he sound like Bowie though?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:24pm Danne D:

Good question, I've have to listen to his stuff later :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:25pm PB:

Only on covers.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:25pm Next Hurricane:

Kill Devil Hills is on my "maybe" list.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:26pm Julie:

I want to hear Mark Question do a cover of a Bush Tetras song sounding like David Bowie
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:27pm Julie:

It's actually ON the emergency declaration list from Irene, but I haven't seen anything worrisome. Though apparently the road to Hatteras is out
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:27pm Holly in NC:

@Julie - NOT that you should ditch Evan, but you really s/b eating the Wed night late night sushi special @ Tortuga's Lie in Nag's Head. Really, really, you should...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:28pm Randy in NC:

@Julie, it's washed away in 5 places.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:28pm Julie:

@Holly I just got here tonight so I'm recovering from a long drive..but I will check that out!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:29pm Julie:

@Randy Hatteras or KDH?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:29pm Julie:

is this coldwave
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:31pm Holly in NC:

@Randy - I saw no one. My ex-husband saw the Swans Friday & said they were **amazing**. And he awesomely offered to let me borrow his wristband Saturday as he had to work night shift - but so did I. Bummer.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:32pm Randy in NC:

@Julie, on the way to Hateras just above Rodanthe.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:32pm cheri:

evan & julie thanx for letting me hanging out with you two,, be back in 2 weeks night for real.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:32pm seang:

thanks for that clip Danielle--inspiring stuff
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:33pm Danne D:

will have to check out the Danielle clip after the show as well :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:34pm PB:

Completely off topic but inquring minds need to know: Was anyone else out there as disappointed as I was with Ty Segall's last album, Goodbye Bread?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:35pm Randy in NC:

@Julie, I've never seen Superchunk before, they came out dialed up to 11, and maybe backed off to 10 once or twice.
@Holly, I have kiddies so that was the other reason I didn't invest in a wristband... I was wearing my WFMU colors, I saw one other person with an FMU shirt.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:36pm Kat:

Thumbs up for Soft Metals into Zombie Zombie.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:37pm Julie:

yeah this is very cool
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:37pm Chris:

Just tuned in, and weirded myself out by recognizing the Zombie Zombie cover of John Carpenter's theme. Looks like it's been a great show so far!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:40pm Holly in NC:

Recently, some ex-goths who don't want to admit to being ex-goths have kinda appropriated & abused the terms "coldwave"and "darkwave" so that they feel better about listening to unhip music that has nothing to do with cold/dark wave

Me, I freely admit to LOVING the Sisters of Mercy 12"s!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:41pm Julie:

Badwave..their stuff..not sisters
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:43pm Holly in NC:

@PB - yes
@Randy - I am honored to live down the block from Laura Ballance.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:46pm Kat:

I will girlcrush forever on Laura Ballance
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:48pm Holly in NC:

@Kat -
Who wouldn't?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:49pm Randy in NC:

Live, she's a pretty aggressive bass player. A lot of their sound is hers.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:50pm Holly in NC:

PLUS, I hasten to add, she is very much responsible for Merge's success. VERY good - and ethical - businesswoman.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:51pm Kat:

@Holly truth.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:53pm G:

Small world, my current roommate's ex-roommate and good friend is a different Laura Ballance from Virginia, nearly the same age as the musician...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:54pm Kat:

Haha, Liz Berg played Zombie Zombie into Zombi into Zomby on her show this week!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:54pm Kat:

@G what are the odds???
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:55pm Randy in NC:

There was of course lots of Merge presence at Hopscotch. Jon Wurster introduced GBV, Kelly Crisp introduced Superchunk. And Rosebuds, Love Language, Superchunk, etc all played...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:55pm Holly in NC:

If anyone wants a free, legal copy of the Sureshot Symphony Orchestra's song with Mighty Pope, look no further:
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:57pm efd:

@Kat, I missed that! Should have figured that somebody would be on top of that.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:57pm G:

Not high, the Laura Ballance I know and saw last weekend is from the Norfolk/Hampton Roads area, just north of the Carolina border, but lives in NYC now...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:59pm Danne D:

This is great :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:00pm Holly in NC:

Kid Congo always makes me very, very happy
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:02pm john:

What Holly said!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:04pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I had to step away-did I miss the Happy How Do You Do?
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:05pm efd:

haha, fortunately you did not!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:07pm Danne D:

'nother great song :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:08pm Stevel:

This is making it difficult to go to sleep.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:11pm Matt:

Superlative show tonight, Evan!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:12pm Dillon Joseph:

Holy shit--I cannot believe I just ran into this radio show by accident
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:14pm Listener:

Sleep is for ❏'s
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:15pm Stevel:

Dillon Joseph: There are no accidents

(one of us, one of us, one of us...)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:16pm Holly in NC:

Re S. Salisbury - any relation to Ohio Express? Or C. Boettcher?
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:16pm Holly in NC:

Evan, you just answered me, sorry!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:17pm Danne D:

EFD finally seems to be warming up to the new name ;)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:17pm Holly in NC:

Steve1 -
Don't scare him off! Offer kool-aid...
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:18pm Danne D:

Dillon - it's the best accident you'll ever have. Stay awhile. Check out some of the other shows on WFMU. Note that if you like this show there's a few years worth of archived shows for you to dig into :) FMU is the best :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:20pm Dillon Joseph:

Well, I was actually directed here by the Modern Shark label out of Brooklyn, and I'm pretty sure they're on at 12. But I'm loving what I've heard thus far. And I like blue kool-aid, for future reference.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:25pm Holly in NC:

For those of you who were here for efd's scary not-palmetto bug studio experience last week. here's a fun link:

Yay Wooden Shjips.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:27pm efd:

Holly, you and I apparently have different ideas of "fun."

Dillon, glad you stopped by early (and that you're enjoying the show)! Yeah, Modern Shark crew will be on with Noah at midnight.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:27pm G:

The rare and spooky Albino Beetle.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:28pm cheri:

julie if you're still here tell me if you think i buy more bowie cds??
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:28pm G:

efd is scared of bugs, especially ones that walk along the ceiling over your head :-P
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:29pm efd:

guilty as charged!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:30pm Danne D:

any word on who your new bug repeller will be once Noah departs, Evan? Or will it be a rotating cast?
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:30pm G:

so that's why he never plays the beetles
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:31pm cheri:

see you all soon
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:32pm Holly in NC:

Evan -
I torture myself, too. I Here's a photo that disturbs me immensely!

BTW, talked with Dan Melchior's wife last week, she's doing much better & thanks everyone for their thoughts & assistance !!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:33pm Danne D:

WOW! Jukebox! :) Quality early MTV Stuff :D
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:33pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Funny, I was thinking of this song today and the video shot on Carmine STreet--I was in Joe's Pizza in Hollwyood today (and the original was at Bleecker and Carmine)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:33pm cheri:

especialy you evan,,you're the kimg of wednesday nights!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:33pm G:

video killed the jukebox star
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:34pm efd:

man did I hate this song when it was out.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:34pm G:

a bat tongue looks a lot like a cat tongue. inappropriately too similar, actually.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:35pm Julie:

I liked this one
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:35pm Julie:

hey she kinda sounds like kim wilde doesn't she
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:35pm Danne D:

So I'm not sure what it says about our fantasy league, Evan, but The Scum Bunch is in 5th place and hasnt' made a trade all year (and apparently hasn't even tinkered with their lineup since like week 1)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:36pm G:

then he cues "bad sport", lol
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:37pm Danne D:

@Julie that was when you had bands like the Bangles, Bananarama and the Belle Stars getting lots of play on MTV too.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:37pm MTV:

Girls bands work nicely for tv ratings
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:38pm Danne D:


love the mash-up, Evan :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:40pm Suzi Quattro:

F*k you, MTV!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:40pm Julie:

I liked all of those people.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:40pm Julie:

Haha I love Suzi too..she's got a new one coming out soon
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:42pm Julie:

this doesn't sound like Bowie
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:43pm Holly in NC:

First time.
Best time.
Best single?
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:43pm cheri:

i need your opinion julie,,you think i buy more bowie cds??
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:45pm Julie:

Cheri don't know..I do know he's got a TON
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:46pm Reality Check:

CDs are passing our of the culture, cheri. Check how low the prices are for used copies of any CDs that had big sales. Many people are downloading mp3s and selling CDs. Someday they may get cool again, like vinyl, but be prepared to wait a few decades.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:47pm Danne D:

the more CDs for me then :D
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:48pm Thierry from France:

Hi. Any news from the Lyres these days?
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:48pm Danne D:

:CRY: again at the Noah News
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:48pm Noah:

  Wed. 9/14/11 11:49pm Noah:

Shed a tear for Eddie... not me!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:50pm G:

@Danne: Yeah, I buy CDs when they are cheaper even with shipping than mp3s, and then burn them to a wav or mp3 file myself :-) I save the treeware artwork and booklet in alpha order for possible future reference...
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:51pm Danne D:

14 days left in the league according to yahoo, EFD
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:52pm Michael from the Left Coast:

  Wed. 9/14/11 11:52pm Danne D:

Thanks for the props, Evan :) And you have done a great job running your team this year :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:54pm Thierry:

I miss baseball a lot!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:55pm Danne D:

I have to ship out :) Have a good night everyone and thanks for another great show (as always Evan)!

As of this moment, I'm within 7 games of Aharon - which is the closest I've been to to the top since like April I think. Wish me luck :D

Take care Funk Fans!
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:56pm cheri:

evan.julie..as always thnx for a real wonderful show
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:57pm Danne D:

@Thierry you should check out internet packages next year for B-Ball viewing - I know MLB offers some options. Anyhow, Take care everyone :) *poof*
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:59pm Mic Smoov:
