Listener comments!

  Wed. 11/2/11 9:10pm Kat:

This show is off to one heckuva start!
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:12pm ?:

I second that motion. What was the track that lead in to chilliwack? was that the Do or DIY set?
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:12pm efd:

Thanks Kat! For those not on Twitter, I JUST got to the station a few minutes ago (thanks, Amtrak and NJ Transit). You're hearing just what's in my record bag, CD case and 45 box tonight.
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:13pm G:

So this is kind of "The Essential Evan Episode" then?
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:15pm efd:

the song before Chilliwack was a new Brian Eno cut that board up Tuim selected.
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:15pm John L.:

I know it's a pretty basic riff, but it just occured to me how much the ELO tune sounds like "Jerkin Crocus" by Mott the Hoople. Oye, if memory serves, I saw John Miles with City Boy and Bebop Deluxe. I'm having flashbacks.
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:16pm SF Spike:

highfly!?! Thank you, kind sir.
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:19pm Stevel:

Ready to tune in, turn on and drop out--and work on a mailing spreadsheet. WHeeee!
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:27pm Living Doll:

I'm late, what happened for the first couple minutes til you got there?
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:28pm ?:

ma ma ma belle appeared on 2 different 45s - it was its own single then later the b-side of Livin thing!
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:33pm Living Doll:

Is that Small Change?
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:34pm G:

That's Adam Warrock
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:34pm Kat:

*hands in the air*
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:35pm Madi H.:

I gotta check in to say hi to WARROCK! You know what's up.
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:36pm Living Doll:

Ahhh that was interesting
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:38pm Randy in NC:

Ahh, the joys of the NY metro area...
  Wed. 11/2/11 9:49pm Madi H.:

I don't know him, but he's great.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:03pm Stevel:

Inspiring, and reality-based. You sure AWR is a mere mortal? Nice talk!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:04pm PB:

Good for you Adam, it took real guts to do what you did.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:05pm Living Doll:

Kinda makes me feel like a wimp
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:10pm Living Doll:

He wasn't kidding about the nerd thing
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:11pm G:

nerdster rap FTW
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:13pm Kate:

man bummed i missed the beginning of this show! this song's good! sound like they're saying crepe suzette, delicieuse!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:14pm Brian:

9 year old Harry heard the comic book references in "Silver Age", and cranked the volume big time...
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:14pm Living Doll:

Real hair?
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:15pm Living Doll:

Hey Evan is up on his meter from last week, yay for last minute donors
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:19pm efd:

Yes, thanks to everyone who pledged during the silent fundraiser! Money will still be accepted in Awevember.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:22pm Stevel:

I'm balding, but more towards the front of my head. I hope they play one for me!!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:26pm Living Doll:

Isn't this a Kinks song? Or did the Kinks cover it?
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:27pm ?:

ray davies song for a film or tv show
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:27pm doobie:

  Wed. 11/2/11 10:28pm efd:

I think Dave Berry wrote it, but the Kinks also did it. (Where's Joe B when you need him?)
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:28pm Holly in NC:

It's a great song!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:28pm Living Doll:

This was an early one I think. Not for a film
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:28pm ?:

this strange effect oriignal artist was Dave Berry.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:30pm Joe B:

song was written by Ray Davies, Dave Berry had the first release. Kinks never officially released it though it is on the live at the BBC CD. and of course Steve Wynn covered it on his Sweetness and Light LP
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:31pm Holly in NC:

Per Wiki:
Dave Berry (born David Holgate Grundy, 6 February 1941, Woodhouse, Sheffield)[1] is a British pop singer and former teen idol of the 1960s. He performed a mixture of hard R&B and pop ballads and was popular in Britain, and on Continental Europe but had no commercial success in the US, where he is best known for the original versions of Ray Davies' "This Strange Effect" and Graham Gouldman's "I'm Going To Take You There". He had an unusual ambition for a pop performer trying to make a name for himself - to appear on TV completely hidden by a prop.[2] In his own words, to "not appear, to stay behind something and not come out". He often hid behind the upturned collar of his leather jacket, or wrapped himself around, and effectively behind, the microphone lead.[2]
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:31pm efd:

Thanks Joe!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:31pm John L.:

Ray Davies wrote it, but Berry had the hit with it. The Kinks version is on the, I think, Kinda Kinks double reissue.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:31pm efd:

...and Holly and John!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:34pm Holly in NC:

Loving The Bon -will we get to hear Miss October?
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:36pm Mike Sin:

They're putting the Whammy on me!!!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:36pm efd:

Holly, I don't want to give any spoilers but I wouldn't go walking any dogs either.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:37pm Holly in NC:

  Wed. 11/2/11 10:37pm Joe B:

can't listen at work but I am confident Mike Sin did a great job at the controls!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:38pm efd:

He did! They sound fantastic!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:44pm Holly in NC:

  Wed. 11/2/11 10:48pm Holly in NC:

So I can purchase the lp (oh, you all know what I mean) for $8.99 on amazon vs $10 on bandcamp. But if I save $, does it cost the band $?
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:50pm Rosh:

Just dropping in to say: Never heard a Warrock interview before (twas lovely) & this Bon set's pretty killer. Thanks for dealing w/ commuter chaos to get this out,totally making my night.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:51pm efd:

Both sites take some sort of cut of the purchase price, but they'll get a litte more if you spring for the extra buck on bandcamp.
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:52pm efd:

Thanks Rosh, I appreciate that! Glad you're enjoying the show!
  Wed. 11/2/11 10:53pm Living Doll:

Wow Joe B is like Beetlejuice. Call him and he appears
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:01pm ?:

efd shone the B. signal over JC, and Joe flew in to defend truth and justice in music credit! Maybe a new Warrock rap topic
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:05pm Living Doll:

  Wed. 11/2/11 11:06pm john:

Squire! And on Secret Affair's label, no less...
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:07pm efd:

  Wed. 11/2/11 11:07pm Living Doll:

I thought my phone was ringing!
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:07pm Living Doll:

plastic letters was a good one
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:09pm Tim Serpas:

Ah, this is the sort of thing that makes me wish I played an instrument!
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:10pm Classy Craig:

You can also get the physical Bon CD on ebay via Get Hip distro!
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:12pm anomaly:

i love the efd show . what with the seasons changing and all ,
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:13pm Holly in NC:

Cool. Paid Bandcamp, But - irritating - Bandcamp dl not working!! As far as I can tell my dl *may* start sometime in the next 3 days to 3 years...sigh.
Can't afford to throw $10 to the wind as guess what - that sweet Brooklyn dog I was walking last week lost her tags as I was hustling her along, or so I thought, so I went & spent $25 for a new set of id.
And then of course said tags were really underneath her couch cushion :-(
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:14pm Living Doll:

That was a French song, though the April March version is easier to sing
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:14pm Palmetto Bugs:

You sure we didn't steal the tags and packrat them in the couch?
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:21pm Living Doll:

oh a palmetto bug is a cockroach?
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:22pm Stevel:

Stranglers are always a good choice.
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:22pm Palmetto Bugs:

Ask Holly. She's the expert!
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:23pm Holly in NC:

A HONKIN' BIG cockroach, with wings - and an attitude.

Some of 'em, however, are kinda cute ;-)
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:24pm Palmetto Bugs:

Attitude is everything in this life O:-)
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:25pm G:

I feel like I am in a Doors solo about now!
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:26pm Living Doll:

I had one climb up my leg under my pants once..it was awful
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:27pm efd:

heh, I remember thinking the same thing G! Dave Greenfield at his most Manzarekian.
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:27pm Palmettos Bugs:

Some of the boys could use an etiquette lesson or two
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:30pm Holly in NC:

@Living Doll - same thing happened to me recently with a cave cricket - totally awful. I did the hand slap thing - SQUISH!. Ugh. Flashback. No dinner for while..
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:38pm Stevel:

Manzarekian. I just wanted to say that again. Manzarekian
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:47pm Holly in NC:

Canada. EFD, Rush. Cool old documentaries.

  Wed. 11/2/11 11:54pm Parq:

Here are three things that were on tape at a Brian Brain show at the Dirt Club in 1982:
1) The drums.
2) The between-song patter.
3) The audience cheering at the end of the set.
  Wed. 11/2/11 11:55pm Parq:

(I should add that the set was really strong and all of us real people in the crowd were applauding. It's just that they apparently weren't taking chances.)
