I'll have a large coffee and a chocolate donut, eh?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:07pm PB:

efd, I can't believe you're playing a whole show of Canadian music. I grew up in Toronto and hated getting Canadian content forced upon me by Canadian content regulations. I am very interested to see what you play tonight. Should be interesting.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:08pm PB:

@ Tim Horton, you mean a "double-double" and a maple donut.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:08pm CKLW:

Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman...
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:10pm Dean Rispler:

Great so far. Can't wait for April Wine, Chilliwack, Max Webster, Teenage Head, D.O.A. and more Canuck treats!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:10pm calzone!:

I'm turning it up, I'm turning it down!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:10pm Dave B:

Yeah to Kaptain Kool! Make sure one of those tracks is Allied Forces!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:11pm Brian:

Let Evan play that Canuck rock and roll...
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:12pm Joe D.:

conadian cantent laws always cenfused me. What if a bend is only 1/4th conadian?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:12pm PB:

Please, please no Robert Charlebois or the DeFranco Family.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:13pm CKLW:

Bureaucrats *love* deciding shit like that, Joe D.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:13pm Dean Rispler:

I am looking forward to Voivod, Exciter and the mighty Thor!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:15pm Julie:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:15pm pgw in mntclr:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:15pm David:

there's no * for if the music has been played before/is new. are all the songs new?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:16pm Dave B:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:17pm PB:

Toronto actually had a pretty good punk scene in the mid to late 70s.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:17pm Quebecois:

Je me souviens!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:18pm calzone!:

Everybody get the note now, hear it ringing in their ears....
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:18pm efd:

Bonsoir, tout le monde! Good evening everyone! Thanks for listening, and please be sure to PLEDGE if you have not done so already - WFMU really needs your support!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:18pm PB:

One of the other FMU DJs played Klaatu the other day. Brutal.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:19pm Joe B:

les Breastfeeders?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:19pm efd:

oh, I have some Klaatu with me. No DeFranco family, though.

Julie, I didn't go through the new bin so didn't have a chance to check out Austra.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:20pm efd:

calzone, that song will be heard later for sure.

Joe B - oui!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:20pm Julie:

I like Klaatu. I like Calling Occupants.. :)
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:20pm Joe D.:

this song was sampled by... wait, what. Where am I?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:20pm Julie:

I gave Evan my lunch money and he didn't even have to beat me up for it
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:21pm Dave B:

Will a few loonies and twonies help?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:23pm john:

Bonsoir, Evan Funque Davies! Vive la famille DeFranco!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:23pm calzone!:

EFD....I'll call Judy and ask her to get Trudy. Over and out.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:23pm Dave B:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:33pm PB:

The Asexuals, a Montreal band, were pretty good.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:33pm Dave B:

oh... wait...

will you be playing any RU(BBI)SH????

Get Meghan on the webwaves STAT!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:35pm efd:

There will be Rush. And you will like it. Promise.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:35pm Sweenbean:

heyit's cold enough to be in Montreal.
Speakng of Montreal, how about Moist!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:35pm Geddy:

... the universal dream ...
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:36pm PB:

Trooper - hilarous! This is going to be a fun night.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:36pm Dave B:

"Play that Dianne Sawyer song"
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:38pm Brian:

My boy Harry sang along to Trooper.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:39pm Sweenbean:

I saw a draft-dodging Jesse Winchester play the Yellow Door In Montreal. He should count.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:41pm Sweenbean:

Moist was worst combo of name and sound ever,
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:41pm Julie:

You cannot do a Canada show without Payolas
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:42pm efd:

I have Payolas AND Rock & Hyde!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:42pm PB:

Does The Band count as Canadian, seeing as Levon Helm was the only non-Canadian in the band. I think that 80% Canadian membership would pass the Canadian content regs.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:42pm Sweenbean:

you cant mention payola here.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:43pm Joe D.:

Steppenwolf WAS canadian!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:43pm Brian:

@Sweenbean - Saw Moist open for Neil Young and Crazy Horse at the Regina Agridome... talk about contrast.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:44pm Dave B:

@Joe D - so this is a double down on the cheese curds....
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:44pm Sweenbean:

How about the Wackers? the Kanadian Kiss. Saw them up there too.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:45pm Julie:

Steppenwolf are part Canadian
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:45pm Sweenbean:

i saw same show in Montreal. The frenchies loved Moist and the fringed jacket guys went to get more Molsons,
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:46pm Sweenbean:

i mean the ones in audience who did not go to McGill.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:46pm PB:

Zal Yanovsky, the original drummer for the Lovn' Spoonful was a Canuck.
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:47pm Sweenbean:

Where's joe B?
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:47pm Dave B:

The word "moist" is great... right up there with "gourd"
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:47pm chris :: toronto:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:54pm ADL:

Raga Rage-ah!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:55pm Julie:

Yes I am shocked and odd
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:55pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans!
Hi Evan, thanks for everything you do!
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:55pm Julie:

Yay Jale! that is such a good album
  Wed. 10/12/11 9:56pm Kaptain Kool:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:56pm Stevel:

  Wed. 10/12/11 9:58pm Dave B:

efd - if you have or can find Rick Jeffery - Be-I (Bed-A-Bye Bo) - that'd rock....
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:00pm Danne D:

Hi Sweenbean!

Btw, here's a song that I doubt we hear on tonight's show:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:02pm Danne D:

Here's something better, the intro music to Don Cherry's Coach's Corner:
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:02pm Sweenbean:

Terrif non rock show i saw in Montreal was Ashley McIssac's young sister Lisa in a small bar. Ive seen him and she was much better. Very trad. she is now an actress and has folk duo.Fantastic fiddler and quite a clogger.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:04pm Danne D:

I love how every song seems to sound vaguely like Rush or Loverboy on some level :)
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:04pm Sweenbean:

hahaa a Does Evan like the Bruins too?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:07pm PB:

This show is bringing back horrible flashbacks to my teenage years and hearing stuff like Lighthouse, Mahogany Rush and Murray McLachlan on some of the local Toronto radio stations.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:07pm Sweenbean:

Hey Danne, i was thinkng of you this weekend. I wore tha WFMU shirt to our shoot. the guy though preferred me in tie dye. another guy though wore a different FMU shirt. i brought a bag of them down.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:07pm Julie:

Lee Aaron! she's a rockin Canadian gal
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:08pm Sweenbean:

anybody remember CHOM in Montreal. wenr to school in Plattburgh. loved that station.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:09pm Dave B:

The Four Lads
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:09pm Brian:

Dang... wandered away and missed Coney Hatch AND Prism!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:10pm SF Spike:

Prism Stynx.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:10pm PB:

I never lived in Montreal but used to lisen to CHOM FM when I visited. It was a very cool station. CFNY (Toronto) was also very good in its early days and CHUM-FM was also great in the very early days (late 60s).
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:10pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

Hello efd & all!!
I second the Chilliwack request, and how about some Fable?
I also bet efd is gonna play something off of Rush's [surprisingly good] cover lp, not a proper Rush-penned song ;-)
Take off!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:13pm Sweenbean:

Also remember pro wrestling from Montreal.Gave us Andre the Giant and Mad Dog Vachon.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:15pm Danne D:

That's cool - I can see why they'd prefer you in tie dye. Actually now that I think about it has FMU ever done a tie-dye shirt?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:16pm Danne D:

@Holly - though it'd be nice if he'd play a little Why Why Zed, eh?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:16pm SF Spike:

Martha and the Muffins?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:16pm G:

What? Nothing by Toronto?? (My sister in Vancouver is reminding me of bands to request...)
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:17pm SF Spike:

The Poppy Family!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:18pm efd:

Got that Toronto LP in my record bag, G. And Martha and the Muffins too.

Bad news for Triumph fans, though - there's none in the FMU library.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:18pm Sweenbean:

Spike YES! ECho Beach.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:19pm Julie:

Hi Holly!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:21pm Danne D:

Julie might be able to get Clay to help you with your Triumph problem EFD:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:22pm Dave B:

How's about some "Snortin' Whisky"? - Pat Travers

(Canadian Club of course, eh.?)
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:23pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

Hi Julie!
Oh, SF Spike just made 2 AWESOME suggestions!
Poppy Family - Where Evil Grows, Shadows On My Wall, There's No Blood In Bone....

And if people want to hear more Sloan, may I put in a request for the _original_ version of "Underwhelmed" from the Peppermint ep?

efd - I really like the Bon
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:24pm Sweenbean:

This is great,
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:24pm SF Spike:

The Weakerthans might be my favorite current Canadian band. I'm also fond of Simply Saucer.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:25pm Sweenbean:

I meant the Bon. Soon to be on show?
Far away, inside.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:25pm SF Spike:

Yay, Echo Beach! THANX EFD!!!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:25pm calzone!:

Far away inside!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:25pm efd:

oh, Simply Saucer! I meant to grab that from the library... will try to run back in there. Not sure if we have any Weakerthans...
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:26pm calzone!:

Echo beach still sounds kinda timeless and cool...
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:27pm Sweenbean:

The only thng that helps pass the time away is knowing EFD is just a headphone away
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:27pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

@Danne -
If efd plays yyz, I'll be compelled to get my flute out of the attic & commence marching - I still remember the formation ;-) [Danne impressively remembers that the Neil Peart-obsessed drummers in my high school marching band successfully lobbied for yyz to be our 1/2 time grand finale]
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:27pm ?:

I've always liked M&M. Still love the Trance and Dance album.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:27pm efd:

yes, well, I guess we'll hear two M &the Ms songs then.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:27pm calzone!:

Far away in time...I meant...silly spell ck!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:27pm Dave B:

in TIME....

in TIME!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:28pm Dean Rispler:

The Bon is playing Don Pedro's in Brooklyn on October 22nd as part of a two day rock fest over there. Check it yo!: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=170002406418641
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:28pm T-Zero:

Oooops! The ? was me.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:28pm Dave B:


Double dose of Martha!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:29pm Kaptain Kool:

If no Triumph, what about Zebra?
They aren't technically Canadian, but they sound like they are.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:29pm Julie:

I think this song is better than Echo Beach
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:30pm Sweenbean:

Far away, in TIME? I like my version better,
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:30pm calzone!:

Energy can be directed....just sayin'.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:31pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

I agree with Julie
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:32pm Dave B:


Set the WABAC machine...

Next up "Good Rats"
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:32pm JMD:

Neat! Elton Jean!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:33pm PB:

In the mid-60s Rick James (who was from Buffalo) played in a band with Neil Young called the Mynah Birds that played the Yonge Street strip in Toronto.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:33pm efd:

OMG, was he really called Elton Jean? That's hilarious. Totally makes sense.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:33pm Parq:

Echo Beach? My nabe last summer -- the bust is called "Echo".

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:33pm Randy in NC:

Randgers 7-3 in the 11th
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:33pm Rick James:

Cocaine is a helluva drug....
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:34pm G:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:34pm Randy in NC:

er Rangers....
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:34pm Danne D:

@holly enjoy this sweet animated video for YYZ :)

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:34pm JMD:

No, I just made it up.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:34pm G:

Did the Mynah Birds open for The Yonge and the Restless?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:35pm Joe B:

didn't Pagiaro used to play third base for the Yankees?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:36pm Joe B:

Mynahs of course also recorded for Motown
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:36pm Stevel:

Gotta love a scratchy record. Its a sign of love. Abusive love possibly, but love nonetheless.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:36pm calzone!:

EFD's copy of Rock Me Gently sounds very 'Pre-enjoyed'!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:37pm Dave B:

How about "Liquor and Whores" by Bubbles (from Trailer Park Boys)

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:38pm Beavis:

"i love a broken-in 7-inch" <--- that's what she said
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:38pm calzone!:

Bout time!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:38pm Randy in NC:

efd, did you ever listen to CKLW when you were a kid? I used to listen to them at night in Boston. If memory serves me right, in the late '60's they were owned by the same company as WRKO in Boston and had the same format, same jingles and such.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:39pm Brian:

The Andy Kim sent me into a K-Tel fever dream...

And now I drinking paralyzers on the dance floor of The Pat', Switchin' to Glide...

What part of my youth will I be transported to next?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:40pm Sweenbean:

Best song EVAH on EVAN.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:40pm efd:

Randy, I did tune them in once in a while! And CKLM as well, I think.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:40pm Dave B:

@calzone - the proper proncunciations would bee

"boout time, eh?"

just sayin'. know what I'm sayin?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:41pm SF Spike:

Switchin' to Glide! There was a rock station in Phoenix that would play this song at 5 p.m. every Friday. I thought that was kinda brilliant. Better than Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend."
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:41pm Sweenbean:

never heard another song by these guys. Guess im lazy.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:41pm calzone!:

The big payoff!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:41pm Dave B:

and spelling would be

bee = be
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:41pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

@Danne - Color me clueless - I never connected the song title with the airport code. Wow.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:41pm Fuzzy:

"Switchin' to Glide" -- great junior year of highschool tune...WCOZ in Boston, those were the days....
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:42pm Sweenbean:

From a Wednesday point of view.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:42pm G:

I listened to CKLW (800AM) back in the Rosalie Trombley days, mid 60s till I moved to England in late 1971. I lived in southeast Michigan.

CKLW... the Motor City...
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:43pm Dave B:

I just saved a lot on my car insurance by

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:43pm Stevel:

Payoff indeed! Great, great pop song. Not even sure where I heard it, but I heard it a lot.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:43pm PB:

Wasn't CKLW a Windsor station?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:43pm Randy in NC:

CKLW I guess was a 50,000W clear channel station because you could get them all over the north east on a good night.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:43pm Danne D:

I used to joke that there were basically 3 types of people when it came to Rush:

1) Those who owned every bit of everything Rush ever produced
2) Those who couldn't stand Rush and owned nothing of theirs
3) People who owned Moving Pictures
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:43pm SF Spike:

Dave B Funny!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:44pm calzone!:

Not just the greatest Canadian song ever, but theeer greatest song in the whole world ever!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:44pm Randy in NC:

@ PB, yes.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:44pm JMD:

ditto SF Spike
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:44pm Sweenbean:

hey Julie? you just prefer the Toyah version of Echo Beach,
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:44pm G:

Yes, but their famous jingle was "CKLW the Motor City". They had far more US than Canadian listeners, and did tons of ads for Detroit car dealerships...
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:45pm Stevel:

2112 inspired a great deal of dope smoking in my circle.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:45pm Sweenbean:

Awesome line, Dave B. !!!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:46pm Dave B:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:46pm Julie:

You realize what I'm hearing every time you say "kings"
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:46pm Randy in NC:

@G, I wonder if they had to have Canadian Content back then?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:47pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

@Danne - I was a "1" up through & including Signals. Lost me at Grace Under Pressure. Came back for that cover lp I suspect we'll be hearing.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:48pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:48pm Kaptain Kool:

Who will EFD play first? Aldo Nova or Honeymoon Suite?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:48pm G:

The operated in Canada (station in Windsor). CKLW having to follow can-con regs brought a lot of Canadian artists to American attention, b/c for awhile in the late 60s CKLW had one of the most influential top-40 playlists in North America...
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:48pm Sweenbean:

dont knock Canadian content. it gave us the Great White North.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:48pm Julie:

Sweenbean -- the Toyah version IS what I'm used to..It's a great song, but I loved that second one
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:48pm Julie:

@holly very good! :)
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:49pm David (chudleycannons):

You know what's Canadian, good, and Chris Sims would probably want to listen to: Plumtree's Scott Pilgrim.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:49pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

@Julie - you know I have an unfair advantage ;-)
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:50pm Sweenbean:

how was Toyah. Her band is pretty big now.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:50pm Doug Mckenzie:

according to wikipedia, canadian content rules came in in 1971
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:50pm Dave B:

So, would "Aldo Nova" in English translate to "Aldo No Go"?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:51pm glenn:

i'm waiting for cub.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:51pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

Oops - missed efd's backsell - what WAS the second M&M song? I can't pull out my lps right now
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:52pm Julie:

paint by number heart I think
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:52pm glenn:

and also the headstones.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:52pm Julie:

@Sween her band was AWESOME..it's like great new Toyah stuff PLUS
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:52pm T-Zero:

I think Metro was 79. Trance and Dance was 80.

Paint by Number Heart, Holly
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:53pm glenn:

oh well, neko was in cub for a while.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:54pm Julie:

an under-rated Nancy Sinatra song
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:54pm johnk:

great DVD on CKLW
Radio Revolution: The Rise and Fall of the Big 8
unfortunately currently unavailable on Amazon
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:54pm G:

CKLW alrready played noticeable can-con in the late 60s. Maybe some system or accommodation already existed informally before the major legislation was passed. For example, CKLW really pushed the Guess Who well before 1971 -- the Guess Who were huge already in spring 1970.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:55pm PB:

Nic Harcourt has a 5 page entry called O, Canada in his book Music Lust.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:55pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

Hi Doug, you hoser!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:55pm Sweenbean:

Yes i keep hearing of them but cant think of one particular song,
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:55pm Dave B:

I suppose there's no room for Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians doing "O' Canada" is there?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:55pm glenn:

hah. teenage head. saw them many many many times.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:56pm PB:

Teenage Head were great.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:56pm yourboss:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:56pm PB:

Didn't they have another great song called Top Down?
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:57pm Dave B:

teenage head...

oh, never mind...
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:57pm glenn:

yep. that's on the first album.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:57pm Julie:

I keep thinking he is saying "I am disco Stu"
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:58pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

I'll see your Neko & raise you Kate & Anna McGarrigle - how about the Swimming Song (they do it better than Loudon, I think)
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:58pm Sweenbean:

I saw two big shows in the old forum. Pink Floyd premiering Dark Side to yawns, and the Who being unable to play Quadrophenia because tapes wouldnt work. Regarded as their worst show ever. They ended up fighting amongst themselves and spent night in jail.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:58pm efd:

Kaptain Kool, fooled you with some SAGA!
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:59pm Julie:

Joni Mitchell is canadian isn't she
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:59pm JMD:

fuck yeah! Saga! Thanks1
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:59pm Danne D:

  Wed. 10/12/11 10:59pm Randy in NC:

@G even though CKLW as I recall had the same owner as WRKO in Boston, same format, jingles, etc, I do remember the music being different sometimes.
  Wed. 10/12/11 10:59pm Danne D:

I like the slightly more melodramatic "Wind Him Up" which tells a harrowing tale of the hazards of compulsive gambling...
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:00pm Julie:

a lot of these Canadian rock bands sound like they're right out of the Clay Pigeon library
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:00pm T-Zero:

Saskatoon, Julie
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:00pm PB:

@ Julie, Joni Mitchell is from Saskatoon and cut her teeth on the Toronto folk scene.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:00pm Randy in NC:

I think top 40 was more localized back then.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:00pm Kaptain Kool:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:00pm JMD:

My mom bought me this record for a birthday present when it came out just because she new I liked Canadian power trios. Whatta mom!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:01pm Danne D:

Julie, like I said, see if you can find out where Clay hid his Triumph CD at the station so EFD can play it :)
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:01pm Danne D:

He never really says what else they'll be reaching for in this song
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:02pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

@jmd - That's a great anecdote. Yay to your mom!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:02pm Droll:

Whoa -- I totally mistook Saga for Loverboy at first! CC: Check. I miss this song like I miss Survivor, who also had some solid singles.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:02pm Sweenbean:

I think Clay Pigeon is in every one of these bands, except Martha and the Muffins.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:02pm Dave B:

@Julie -

that would be a major Triumph...

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:02pm Julie:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:03pm Joe B:

right on, Randy. Jerry Blavat in Philly had a different top 40 than the rest of the country.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:03pm glenn:

there's a great documentary called the festival express, about a series of concerts across canada in (i think) 1970, and the hijinks that ensued. also, they were taking the train.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:03pm efd:

There will be no Loverboy played on this show. I have SOME standards, after all.

PS - Hi Droll!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:03pm G:

From wiki article on CKLW: "... breaking records by Canadian acts such as Gordon Lightfoot, the Poppy Family, Skylark, Anne Murray, Joni Mitchell, the Stampeders, The Bells, Neil Young, Five Man Electrical Band, April Wine, and the Guess Who and helping them to all become well-known hit artists across the United States as well."
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:04pm eastvanhalen:

Thank the gods for the Loverboy ban. I was getting flashbacks just thinking about it.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:05pm pgw in mntclr:

+1 for "I think Clay Pigeon is in every one of these bands..."
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:05pm eastvanhalen:

First arena show I ever saw: Prism and Loverboy at the Pacific Coliseum. I was 12. Eek.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:05pm glenn:

well, loverboy is definitely the only canadian band to include a former member of x ray spex
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:05pm PB:

@glenn, I remember that the Grateful Dead were on that cross-country train tour but can't remember any of the other acts. The documentary was very interesting.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:05pm Sweenbean:

Thank you Evan.
How about Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, the Canadian Byrds?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:05pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

Payola$ = wonderful.

efd, I trust your standards also exclude Bryan Adams?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:06pm efd:

Holly, you are correct.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:07pm glenn:

buddy guy, janis joplin, tom rush, mashmakhan, maybe mike bloomfield. i can't remember them all.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:07pm Stevel:

PB: Janis Joplin, Buddy Guy, The Band, others but I'm blanking.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:07pm arugula:

oof! the next thing you know, you'll be tracking some icicle works; whom had a brilliant first album mind you. where is the love indeed!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:07pm Dave B:

@efd - set the WABAC machine:


(sorry I couldn't resist using that URL...)
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:07pm Julie:

I love the rhythms on this song
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:07pm Danne D:

Alas Scott, some of the authority figures around WFMU do not have the same ban on Loverboy as you do. "Hot Girls In Love" anyone?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:08pm Stevel:

Best part of the doc is when hippie musicians are forced to turn to BOOZE!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:08pm SF Spike:

Wow. Payola$. Yer really killin' it tonight. I'm outta work in ten minutes, but I might have to stick around. Just don't play any Mahogany Rush.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:08pm arugula:

or samples of murcin wimmin'
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:08pm Sweenbean:

so after pink floyd did Dark Side, which nobody knew or liked, we were walking out. I was with these French Canadian guys from school and their friends, One sneered; Preeeeetenish Craaaaap. I had to agree and of course still do.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:09pm Stevel:

Oh, Sha Na Na was in the film too. Pretty odd.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:09pm Danne D:

Bryan Adams in the WFMU mix too:
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:10pm PB:

@Steve1, the Dead didn't play in Canada for years because they were terrified of Canadian customs.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:10pm glenn:

really? i remember sha na na in the woodstock film.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:10pm Danne D:

Sha-Na-Na?. Yup FMU has played them too:
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:10pm PB:

That is weird but Sha Na Na also played Woodstock, I think.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:10pm Droll:

I will match, CAD for CAD, any payola to play Rush on broadcast FM in the USA.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:11pm eastvanhalen:

Tsk, glenn, don't be messing with people like that. :)
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:12pm Danne D:

Yup PB, Sha Na Na went on right before Hendrix (at least that's what Wikipedia Sez - I was negative-1 years old then)
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:12pm Stevel:

SNN DID play Woodstock. Anyone know why they had that sort of cred at the time?

"Festival Express" was the film. Worth a watch, especially for the jam session on the train.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:12pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

"Arugula. It's a Ve- ge - ta- ble"
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:12pm Troublemaker:

someone fuck with the equipment while he's answering the door
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:13pm Dave B:

SNN had Gold Lame hoof covers and every thing....

that's why.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:13pm arugula:

i'll raise you a play of chilliwack
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm ...and then some:

Troublemaker: Grab the RUSH, and follow with some Bryan Adams.

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm eastvanhalen:

Gone gone gone she been gone so long...god, not long enough
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm eastvanhalen:

Oh, CanCon, what you did to my developing brain
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm PB:

Sha Na Na followed by Hendrix, that is awesome.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm Troublemaker:

in the woodstock era, sha na na were so retro they were like performance art space aleins, that's why
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm glenn:

sha na na probably played cheap. all those guys had day jobs, from what i recall.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:14pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

That's efd's call. Though we could threaten a nasty flying horned beetle invasion...
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:15pm Dave B:

(i couldn't figure out how to insert accent "agu" or "grave" - but Gold Lame works just the same)
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:15pm Sweenbean:

Anyone remember an acoustic cover of Cuts Like A Knife FMU used to play years ago. it was deadpan but hysterical.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:15pm Stevel:

Hoof covers! Keeping that.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:15pm Huge Honking Ass Flying Beetle:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:16pm Julie:

My radio went blooey
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:17pm Sweenbean:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:17pm eastvanhalen:

Semi-legendary Vancouver f*ck band the Frank Frink Five used to do Cuts Like A Knife Polka. it was awesome.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:18pm eastvanhalen:

Mind you, they'll make anything into a polka if you feed them enough beer.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:18pm Danne D:

I heard a rumor that EFD is gonna be the next GM of the Red Sox...
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:20pm Sweenbean:

f*ck b*nd?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:20pm eastvanhalen:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:21pm Sweenbean:

Shhhh, Danne. It just moved on wire but wont be offical until tomorrow,
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:21pm Danne D:

Evan may need to expand this to Canada month
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:21pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

I wonder if Evan is a carrot or stick kinda guy. I'm leaning towards carrot, which means, Honking, you're going to have to offer to stay OUT of the studio.

Maybe we can knit efd a toque?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:21pm PB:

efd, great show. A real trip down memory lane for this Canuck. I have to turn in but will check out the archives for the last 40 minutes.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:21pm glenn:

hell, we haven't heard paul anka.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:21pm arugula:

wait, yur canuking it? don't forget kim mitchell...
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:22pm Julie:

or William Shatner
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:22pm glenn:

pb, did you ever go to the turning point?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:23pm PB:

@ glenn, no.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:23pm Sweenbean:

Hey what's this white rectangle up in the left corner for?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:23pm Dave B:

The Shat is where its at!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:23pm Julie:

now I want a carrot
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:24pm arugula:

shatner went to high school with my father.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:24pm Huge Honking Ass Flying Beetle:

Julie actually prefers sticks.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:24pm Sweenbean:

Julie want a carrot?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:25pm Julie:

compromise=carrot sticks
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:25pm JMD:

@Holly (belated). Thanks! My experience has been that all Rush fans are nice. Ta-ta.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:26pm Julie:

Rush fans have nice tatas?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:26pm Droll:

Not sure why Canukism is so popular tonight, but nobody's pressed the big red maple leaf shaped button over there labeled "April Wine" to see if it takes us on a journey to the stars.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:26pm Danne D:

I gotta head out myself - but wi][ be sure to get the rest of my Canadian content via the archives.

Thanks for a great show as always Evan :)

Thanks to everyone for making the boards fun :)
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:26pm Julie:

C'mon guys get my friend Evan up to 30%
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:27pm Geddy:

@Julie: I should know, after all this time.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:27pm Sweenbean:

What about that white rectangle?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:27pm Julie:

okay the idea of being a Geddy Lee groupie just gave me chills
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:27pm Stevel:

Sweenbean: White rectangle? You mean the pledge box? Whatever is it doing up there?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:28pm Sweenbean:

As the cow says make it MUUUUUVE
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:28pm arugula:

Great Dave B. NEXT!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:33pm Julie:

I have white rectangle OCD..I like nice round numbers
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:33pm JMD:

Terrific. Gotta get that Aldo Nova in for the Trifecta!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:33pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

@Julie - cut carrots into coins, blanch in rosemary-infused water 'til just past al dente, drain, saute with diced onions & a ton of butter 'til tender. Yum. Easy-peasy and EVERYONE loves
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:33pm glenn:

Thank you, EFD!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:33pm eastvanhalen:

I'm hoisting a lighter in the air. I might set myself on fire with it in the next two minutes.

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:40pm Julie:

Scratched records found in your mom's attic should be a singles going steady theme
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:41pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

I used to have a version of him doing side one of Tarkus, but I lost that hard drive....
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:45pm Randy in NC:

@Dave B. the Dokaka 21CSM is a great version isn't it?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:45pm eastvanhalen:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:49pm eastvanhalen:

Lucked out and sat front row when Rheos played their last gig at Massey Hall in Toronto. Pointed Sticks were coming through from Van en route to NYC at the same time, we all met up. Best week ever.

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:52pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

  Wed. 10/12/11 11:54pm Holly the (nice) Rush fan in NC:

Whoah! Dokaka is amazing! Thanks, Dave B!

Nick Gilder triple play wraps up the show - THANK YOU to everyone who pledged tonight, nice to see that thermometer up to 35%!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:56pm eastvanhalen:

Locally, this was covered by Go Four 3, B-side of a 7 inch with Someone.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:57pm Dave B:

there was another version of 21st CSM that i stumbled across a while back, by some band whos name reminds me of "The International Silver String Submarine Band" but I cant find it right now.

It was done in the style of Lawrence Welk, and was freakin hillarious....

And I wish I still ahd Dokaka's version of Tarkus.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:57pm eastvanhalen:

Thanks for the show!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:57pm Sweenbean:

Julie you were just in Montreal, Didnt you pay attention?
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:57pm efd:

I've got enough left over to do another three hours of this and then some!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:57pm Kaptain Kool:

This has been sweet show! Hearing songs from "countries" like Canada makes us all realize how lucky we are to be in America. Hopefully, the protesters on Wall Street are tuning in.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:58pm eastvanhalen:

Oh wow, I haven't heard this in ages! Great closer! Thanks again.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:58pm Sweenbean:

Got to get ooot!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:58pm Randy in NC:

@Dave B. I think someone on FMU should do an all covers of 21CSM show. There must be a hundred out there in all different styles.
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:58pm Brian:

Sweeney Todd?

Three more hours!
  Wed. 10/12/11 11:58pm Geddy:

RIP Kim Brown (of the Renegades)
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:49am Ralph Alfonso:

wow. That's my photo of The Diodes. I took it in 1977 or 78 in NYC at The Paramount Hotel.

For the person who asked what is Canadian Content (to qualify for airplay on Canadian radio) it must have 2 of these 4 criteria: M (Music is 100% written by a Canadian), A (the artist is Canadian, ie solo artist or band if the main performers are Canadian - could be tricky), P (song is produced 100% in Canada, recording, mixing), L (lyrics are 100% written by Canadian). Bryan Adams disputed this when he discovered one of his albums didn't qualify cause he co-wrote with a non-Canadian & recorded in the UK or somewhere and sort of got the CRTC (our FCC) to bend a little but... he's Bryan Adams :)

lots of stuff on my Bongo Beat Records site.
PS - Diodes on tour in Canada Nov 15-19!
