Listener comments!

13 women and you the only man in town!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:04pm G:

In case no one mentioned it yet, They Might Be Giants outed you on 7SD as originally "Evan Hunk Davies" in high school... Or is the "Sugar Daddy" opener a response? :-P Would also add some resonance to "13 Women"...
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:05pm SteveL:

A prime number of women approve of efd.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:06pm Dave B:

"Rock The Nation" on your "Bad Motor Scooter" efd
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:07pm Kat in Chicago:

As /rupture might say, it's the Evan Davies Hunk Show!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:07pm (theme):

It's time for the Hunk!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:08pm G:

Yeah, he just said Evan Davies Funk Show again!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:08pm SteveL:

Its the funk show with more Davies!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:10pm Andrew Korell:

Now there's enough Funk Davies to butter both sides your toast.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:12pm SteveL:

Civ is new to me. I approve. Heartily.

Evan "Dunk" Favies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/12 9:14pm efd:

Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in and thanks to all who pledged during the marathon!

As for this "hunk" business, that is not a nickname that I recall from my high school years.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:15pm Mr. Stone:

mighty sly cover
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:15pm john:

But could it be a nickname available for a $1000 donation?
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:16pm Ignore Function:

Thank YOU, EFD!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:17pm Danne D:

Greetings your Hunkness.

Hi Hunk Hriends!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:18pm kiemzi:

the efd origin story! or should i say eHd!?
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:18pm Barkevious Shabazz:

So devoto'd to the Evan Davies "Funk" Show.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:19pm Has Heard Too Many Lawyers Talk...:

Does someone not recalling something mean it absolutely categorically didn't happen? :-P
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:19pm Danne D:

Next year's EFD Hoof N Mouth song: Burnin' Love :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:20pm Danne D:

Evan going all Oliver North on this high school nickname story
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:21pm ?:

Yeah that 7SD revelation was cool :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/12 9:21pm efd:

I will say this: 1. I haven't heard the 7SD show yet, and 2. IF this "hunk" business really happened it is categorically a response to the original nickname, "funk."
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:21pm Julie:

Forget the nickname, they said he played drums on their demos!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:22pm dc pat:

Thank you EFD, you'll never know what you did for me by playing that George song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/12 9:23pm efd:

Thank you, Julie, for getting to the real story here.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:24pm G:

They were pretty definite about it, but in efd's defense it *is* true that people tend to recall "good stories" as true just because the story is better if it's presented as true.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:25pm Dave B:

  Wed. 3/7/12 9:28pm Barkevious Shabazz:

A little nostalgia can be good... And then there's Wikka Rap.. That Hot Chocolate kicked ass tho.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:28pm G:

They described their highschool social group as a bunch of guys and the girls who didn't want to date them -- with *one* exception, so they claim in restrospect. Maybe just to tease you, you'd have to ask them...!
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

A member of Civ and a member of Slade collaborating? Top notch.

Van, HI to you! Every Wednesday, 9pm! That's my time! :)

Dave B, sadly(?) no Gamma in the FMU or efd libraries.

evan can you play that new york new york you should be dancin song?
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:47pm Danne D:

@Julie - yep EFD was indeed the "Third John" in TMBG :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:47pm Van in DC:

Okay, who's not dancing NOW?! :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:47pm Dave B:

sad Dave B.
classic Hipgnosis album art on Gamma 2.

efd - take me awaaaaay!

@EFD Kinda figured. It's not Wednesday without a Slade reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/12 9:52pm efd:

Danne, I think Julie was there in person.

G, I have to think there was some good-natured ribbing involved there. It's very possible that there was a "hunk" spin-off, though, but I genuinely don't recall it.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:54pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Drove to scenic City Gardens in 81 to see Revillos.. No show visa probs.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:55pm Van in DC:

Hey Evan, even more congratulations here on the FMU goal and stuff. We all done real good. Yay us all! By the way, was that you as Mr. Drummer that I caught on the ustream replay of the grand finale? Methinks so, but the whole band, and the singers, were all so wonderful.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:56pm Randy in NC:

I would think that the 2 Johns could also be just goofing around. Have they ever not?
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:56pm G:

Listen later, and get your own sense if it was serious or a legpull! Until you said that's not your memory of it, I think as lot of 7SD listeners thought they were serious...
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:58pm Randy in NC:

I heard them say it.
  Wed. 3/7/12 9:59pm Van in DC:

Somebody else played throwing up in the past day or two, but I can't remember who it was? Never had heard of them before this week.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:00pm SteveL:

Never knew the Revillos/Rezillos connection. I am wiser.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:01pm Danne D:

LOL sorry Julie - didn't mean to make it sound like you didn't know that :) Bad phrasing on my part :(

Btw, Evan and everyone - you have to check out Catie's tumblr of great Hoof n Mouth drawings when tumblr is acting less shitty. Our hero is prominently featured
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:04pm Danne D:

I prefer to believe the version as told by John and John as it squares with the image that EFD projects :)

@Van - Evan was in fact one of the many fine drummers during Hoof N Mouth - not sure which particular songs.

@EFD - great you are doing a Ronnie Montrose tribute! RIP Ronnie :(
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:04pm Destroit:

Hello efd and everyone. Glad to be listening.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:05pm steve:

who could ever say no to this song?
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:05pm Danne D:

Hi Destroit glad to have you listening :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:06pm Randy in NC:

With regard to meeting the fund raising goal, maybe pledges to FMU are a leading indicator that the economy is improving? As the newspaper on the FMU home page says, Prosperity is just around the corner!

As for the "hunk" business, I'll listen to the show tomorrow... like I said, I don't recall it but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. Especially these days!
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:09pm Rickwaukee:

  Wed. 3/7/12 10:14pm Dave B:

... OK - he's not REALLY horrible... (and I forgot the umlaut)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:14pm Van in DC:

As for the "hunk" business, efd gonna hunker down tomorrow to figger things out. And I have no clue what any of that means really. Oh, hey, is that cotton candy over there?
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:16pm Dave B:

please refer to my comment from 9:05 pm

'nuff said!
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:16pm Danne D:

@Van did you listen to Seven Second Delay tonight - see top post by G for what happened.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:17pm Danne D:

Btw, congratulations again on your FANTASTIC performance of "13 Women" EFD. You did us all proud with that one :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:17pm Destroit:

Yes, Randy, I think it is. Pledges are the ultimate indicator of disposable income.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:19pm Dave B:

Destroit/Randy - I think its more like this:

  Wed. 3/7/12 10:19pm Destroit:

Jesus, I just realized that Hagar made me think George Will thoughts. Back to music.

Thanks Danne, the finale was really fun this year -- just like it is every year! I'm always happy to be a part of it.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:21pm Van in DC:

@Danne - no, didn't hear the 7 seconds thing. Never have actually. It's on my list of things. Along with, still, trying to figure out all the fuss over that "Sharpling" guy. Really. The "BEST" show? Huh. I don't THINK so.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:22pm Danne D:

You're always one of the top highlights, Evan :) Glad I was there to do the proper fist pumps during your performance
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:24pm Destroit:

Ha, Dave B, thanks for reminding me of that great movie. I'm overdue to watch it again. With every passing decade, it gains more relevance.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:25pm Van in DC:

Is this the montrose / ewg set?
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:26pm mrmucho:

nice montrose tribute. mick mars can get a late pass.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:26pm Destroit:

Nice to throw a haymaker at scharpling. Why don't you call him, that would be awesome radio.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:29pm Mike Sin:

All right -- Montrose set! Hagar only around for first LP... Back in the day, "Jump On It" was one of those LP covers that all the young dudes would at least slow down and check out every time while flipping through the used bin.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:29pm Danne D:

@VAN what was your "gateway" show to WFMU? Actually that's one that would be fun if everyone answered.

Mine was "Aerial View" back when it was on Fridays back in probably '96 or so. Maybe '95
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:30pm Dave B:

@Mike Sin - another Hipgnosis piece I do believe...
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:31pm Van in DC:

If you mean mean Destroit, then, I just might. If I can ever remember when his show is on. I can't even remember this one, and efd is awesome.

@Danne - Julie's Dark Night of the Soul was my gateway show, upon doing a Twitter search of "Toyah" about a year ago. And I'm getting deeper & deeper in to WFMU :) Loving it. Except that Sharpling guy. :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:33pm Mike Sin:

I stand corrected after checking my fax on the inner-net -- Hagar on board for first two.

Gateway WFMU show = Bill Kelly, 1983.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:33pm Destroit:

Mine was Airborne Event, last March. Bodah blew my mind and I've never turned back.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:33pm Danne D:

Tom's show is at the same time as Evan's except on Tuesday Night - 9p-12mid eastern. It's great stuff even if I'm a mediocre at best caller on those rare occasions that I do call.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:34pm Dave B:

Communication Breakdown back in 04 or 05 or something
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:35pm Kat in Chicago:

Gateway shows: Mr. Fine Wine, Dave the Spazz, Teenage Wasteland - circa 1997 when I lived way the hell north in Manhattan and could pick up the signal.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:35pm Destroit:

Julie completely destroyed my mind one night and made me a very unproductive employee. That a phucking good gateway.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:37pm Destroit:

Hello Kat! Nice to read you.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:37pm SteveL:

Trying to remember my WFMU opener. Likely Three Chord Monte as a tip from a friend.

Love Bill Kelly, Terri T, Dave The Spazz, and so much more.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:37pm Roberto:

Gateway: Hip Transistor, 2002. The Dick Panthers' "Two Turds and a Golf Ball" was the nail in my FMU coffin.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:38pm Dave B:

Julie: Destroyer of Minds
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:40pm Holly in NC:

Hi efd (ehd?) & everyone!

@Danne my gateways: Mike Lupica, Laura Cantrell & Terre T.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:40pm Kat in Chicago:

Further to above: I would sometimes set my VCR to record the audio of shows I was going to miss and then record that onto cassette to listen to on a Walkman later.
Hi Destroit! Nice to be read :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:40pm Danne D:

Wow Hip Transistor - there's a classic.

I've decided to throw this up on twitter too.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:41pm mrmucho:

Montrose was proto-Van Halen: Ted Templemen/WB, flashy guitar player's surname is the band name, blonde-haired singer...
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:42pm Van in DC:

After Julie, I discovered Irene (who I adopted this year :) ), Doug S., Amanda, and so many others. Ken, Irwin, Bryce, Scott, Sinner, Tony, the entire GTDS stream actually... and so many others. Trouble, Liz, Meghan, it just never seems to end here. WFMU has that way of just taking over your entire life surreptitiously. Maybe that is why I refuse to listen to that Sharpling guy. That would be just one more brick in the wall.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:42pm Roberto:

IT has finally given in. I can now listen at work! Fuck yeah!

I put my whole progression in a post during one of these comments boards during the marathon :)

I like Nardwuar as well :) I love the way he is able to get some of these people off guard and get more honest and interesting answers by so doing

  Wed. 3/7/12 10:46pm Van in DC:

@Danne D - duty done :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:46pm Kat in Chicago:

@Carolyn that rules.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:46pm Randy in NC:

My gateway was that WNEW started to stink and WPIX changed formats. Very early '80's. Frank O'Toole, Wm Berger, Irwin, Jim Price, Pat Duncan, The Hound, Vanilla Bean, can't remember who else.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:47pm Carolyn:

Yes it does. Evan has never sounded better too.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:47pm Destroit:

Same here Roberto! Van, it never ends here. Perpetual funtime. There is no shame if you don't like scharpling, he's a totally different animal....to my knowledge, there is not another caller-oriented comedy talk show on FMU. In short, if you like Stern, you like Scharpling.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:48pm Van in DC:

I have seen competing comments over this "Nardwuar" as well before. That is yet another facet of FMU I know nothing of. I still have SO much to discover here, being the newbie here.

@Destroit - thanks! I didn't even know. You mean "The BEST show on WFMU" doesn't even play music...? It's like Stern? Wow. I don't care for Stern. I like music.

@Van :) Thx :) did you tweet a reply with your answer though?
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:51pm Destroit:

Nardwuar is a unique experience that is the ultimate wtf is going on when you stumble upon it. Turns out the guy is a real weirdo, gets great interviews. Love him.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:52pm Holly in NC:

I was very much digging the moody atmospherics of Screen Vinyl Image. Horrible name though.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:53pm Dave B:

@efd - "the tools are yours to keep"

  Wed. 3/7/12 10:53pm Danne D:

@Van - that is fault. The BEST show's slogan is "Three hours of mirth, music, and mayhem." - the first 30 minutes or so would be the music part. Tom is an excellent DJ in his own right and actually originally had a music program on WFMU.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:54pm Mildred:

This is my fav song on the new GBV!
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:55pm Van in DC:

@Danne D - yep, just now :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:56pm Van in DC:

@Danne D - as for the show title...just going by what is on the FMU schedule :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:57pm Destroit:

Yes Van, he plays music to open the show, but 9:30-12:00, it's generally callers, maybe a special guest, fake callers, longtime callers/characters story telling, puppet shows, etc. Sometime celeb guests. I like it, but not everybody's bag.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:58pm Danne D:

@Van I meant "That is False" not "That is Fault" in my last post.

@Destroit I disagree about the Stern/Scharpling comparison. Not a Stern fan at all. Tom's show is an interesting mix of real calls, skits and music. Stern is not that - it's more bathroom oriented.

Agree with that great old-school TV editorial reference :)

Philosophically I think it's great that there are shows to not like on WFMU - if you can listen to the station 24/7 then the station must be missing something IMO and should be putting that on the air.
  Wed. 3/7/12 10:59pm Destroit:

Danne, I'm mucking my way through an iPhone and you just put it perfectly. :)

EFD, You do this every time I'm ready to hit the sack. You start playing stuff I can't resist listening longer to. GBV into dBs for pete's sake!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:01pm Van in DC:

I still just want to know if Evan was playing drums at Maxwell's a few days ago. I THINK that was him, but not certain. Whoever that was, he did a really okay job. Of course, if that were Evan, he did a GREAT job.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:01pm Danne D:

Tom's show is one of the very few things on this earth that can me to actually laugh out loud.

Evan's show is such that I actually catch myself smiling while listening to it
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:01pm Dave B:

Destroit - I think he uses sonic tactics like others of the order Cetacea in order to get those interviews.

Kind of "stuns" the interviewee with the clicks and pops that generate from his frontal lobe.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:02pm Barkevious Shabazz:

My Fmu gateway was the enormous rotating antenna my father had the foresight to put up on the roof of our house outside philly... Allowing me to pick up the pride of the Oranges and warp me forever. Later listened while living in nyc circa 85-86.. Most memorable show at the time was a latenight show where the host was in a constant faux rage... Very funny... Would love to know how who it was. Now listen to via the nets.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:03pm Danne D:

@Van Evan played drums on some of the songs during Hoof N Mouth. So did Bryce, as well as Tom Storck and Dennis Diken. (I think that's all the drummers that played this year.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:03pm Randy in NC:

wrt the old-school TV editorial reference, are there any there any TV stations that still do that? Or has all that been replaced by things like Faux News which do it 24/7?
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:04pm Van in DC:

I'm guessing that was pre-Steinski Barkevious Shabazz ...? But Steinski was / is awesome :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:04pm Randy in NC:

@Barkevious, that would have been Bud Stipa I think.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:05pm Danne D:

@Barkevious - I know that Chris T had a show late-night show called Nightmare Lounge way back when before Aerial View. Not sure when though :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:05pm Mildred:

The Clean or Big Dipper would keep me awake, so off to bed I go before you end this break. Thanks always for being great.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:06pm Dave B:

@Randy - to the best of my knowledge, with the advent of cable TV the local editorials/end of day national anthem sign offs are a thing of the past.

I miss those days
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:06pm Van in DC:

Thanks @Danne D - Yep I thought that was EFD I saw on Julie and Amanda's songs :) all of them did AWESOMELY well!!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:06pm Danne D:

  Wed. 3/7/12 11:08pm Danne D:

@Van Evan has been known to dabble in drumming prior to his FMU days as well...http://wildmooseparty.com/pix/cosmops-band.jpg
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:08pm G:

RIP bubblebath, what a shame lol
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:09pm Dave B:

@Danne D - "The Google Fu is strong within you"

  Wed. 3/7/12 11:09pm Destroit:

What the heck do you think stern does, Danne? Real calls, skits, interviews, music, commentary on current events, fake callers, and he had a custom puppet 15 years ago. Similarities are there, love 'em both. Bathroom Does not apply at all in 2012.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:09pm Randy in NC:

@Dave B, Jesse Helms got his start on a local TV station down here doing editorials.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:10pm chris m.:

listener Kirsten is 2 for 2!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:10pm Kat in Chicago:

@efd: Maybe you could fit "Ticket Salad Sandwich" to "Polk Salad Annie"?
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:10pm Danne D:

Ticket Salad Sandwich Time?
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:12pm Danne D:

@Destroit - I don't think they are comparable. True I haven't bothered with Stern for years and barely listen to Imus all that much either but it's like saying all talk shows are the same and that is not true. I decidedly disagree.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:12pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Thanks Van, Randy and Danne.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:12pm Danne D:

Ugh - I can't go to TMBG as I will be at Devils-Islanders *sigh*
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:12pm Holly in NC:

I appreciate Nardwuar for his many, many hysterical & insightful interviews *and*, perhaps more importantly, for introducing me to this amazing xmas novelty song:
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:12pm kiemzi:

ha! i think that theme worked just fine, efd! TICKET SALAD SANDWICH TIME
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:12pm Danne D:

I'd be curious what the crossover is b/w Stern and Scharpling. I would think that it's not all that much.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:15pm Marty DeBergi:

The review for "Shark Sandwich" was merely a two word review which simply read "Shit Sandwich".
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:15pm Destroit:

I'm curious too. Am I the only stern fan on FMU?! :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:15pm Danne D:

Evan - I would suggest a song off of ELP's Brain Salad Surgery might be appropriate - Karn Evil 9, 1st Impression Part 2 "Welcome Back My Friends To the Show That Never Ends" - not bad for a ticket segment. Just sayin'
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:17pm Danne D:

@Destroit - that's a different question. I would think that there's more crossover with X.Ray and Glen Jones for Stern fans.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:17pm Van in DC:

Ha. I almost remembered enough of the number to actually call. Almost.

Good night all.

Oh, and hey! You can still pledge! :)

...or is that so next year now. Dunno. But giving all your money to FMU never goes out of style. Right? :)

Anyway. Thanks Evan. Thanks all the fellow commenters on the Kenzo playlist.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:18pm kiemzi:

i know we're all gonna miss the luxury ticket bubble bath, guys but it's a new day, it's a new dawn, it's TICKET SALAD SANDWICH TIME
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:18pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Big fan of Tom, and longtime Howard listener, but he's so phoning it in at this point.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:19pm chris m.:

i wish i could take a ticket salad sandwich with me into the luxury ticket bubble bath
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:20pm G:

@Danne: Stern grew up listening to Bob Grant who was Joe Pyne's understudy back in California in the 60s.

There is no way to draw a bright line between that line of descent and Tom. He has a musical breadth Stern doesn't have and the strictly political talkers don't want. But Tom didn't invent the term or concept "GOMP". Tom himself does get into political stuff sometimes -- e.g., Limbaugh commentary last night... But he's mainly a cultural commentator/satirist -- movies, tv, comedy, music, current trends, etc.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:21pm Destroit:

True, but from what I've heard, I'd connect X-ray and glen with the imus crowd, which is entirely separate from the stern crowd.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:21pm kiemzi:

i wish i could have a ticket salad sandwich in a luxury ticket bubble bath in a midnight ticket oasis!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:22pm Danne D:

@VAN You can still pledge :) Have a good night!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:23pm Danne D:

Ooh, Evan, Weezer has a song called "Sandwiches Time" that might work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw7U5hNvxE8
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:23pm Dave B:

I'd settle for a midnight luxury salad ticket bath oasis.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:24pm Randy in NC:

Pumpkin time for me, as always great show, thanks Evan. Can't wait for June 1!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:24pm Danne D:

@Destroit - May be a bit of both, Destroit. May be a bit of both. I'd think closer to Stern myself.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:25pm Danne D:

(Side note, it's actually X.Ray not X-Ray :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:27pm Danne D:

hmm, so how you guys think this cutting down on my comments thing is working out for me? :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:27pm G:

great! :-P
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:28pm Miss Edie:

l'll have the brown ones...
and those great big white ones...
and l'll have those over there.

And l want some for frying
and for scrambling...
and for hard-boiled for snacks

Oh, God, and l'll have those over there.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:29pm Brian:

If you want to do another ticket song by an East Vancouver novelty act (Canned Hamm did "Bubble Bath"), you might consider "That's How You Make a Sandwich" by Duplex: http://tinyurl.com/775j76v
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:29pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Eggs Eggs Eggs!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:30pm Sybil:

Belated good evening all! Happy Purim!

Hmmm... interesting comment thread. Pause while I read...
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:30pm Miss Edie:

Please, Mr. Eggman...
please don't ever quit your job.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:30pm Danne D:

Looks like its gonna come down to Salad or Sandwich gonna be hard to get both of those in there!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:31pm Miss Edie:

goo goo ga joob!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:32pm Holly in NC:

@Danne - about as well as your #tweetdiet !;-)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:33pm Danne D:

@holly no kidding *sigh*
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:33pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I think the EFD/Tim + Eric Billion $ Movie overlay might be more interesting.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:34pm Sybil:

No more bubble bath? Danne D dieting on comments? Scharpling and Stern mentioned in the same breath? What have you children been up to?!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:35pm Dave B:

efd - thanks for putting up with my own brand of nonsense! See ya soon folks!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:35pm Sybil:

<<psychotic reaction>>
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:37pm Danne D:

G'night Dave. @Sybil - I didn't say starvation. I just think I comment a bit more than is probably healthy/necessary
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:40pm Danne's Keyboard:

*puff* *huff* hey, i'm a little winded here!!! *sputter* *puff*
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:40pm Sybil:

@Danne - ain't no such thing
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:40pm Destroit:

Good night Dave!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:44pm Danne D:

LOL - I did 60 comments in 60 minutes during an episode of SUW once :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:45pm Danne's Keyboard:

i'm sweating just remembering! :-P
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:45pm Sybil ("Sugar Momma"):

I'ma gonna hafta listen to this show in archives. But I so love that it started with "Sugar Daddy".
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:45pm Danne D:

Buster Bloodvessel was his name. They were well known for the song "Lip Up Fatty"
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:45pm Danne D:

  Wed. 3/7/12 11:46pm Danne D:

@Sybil make sure you check out Seven Select Delay's interview with They Might Be Giants for a Paul Harveyesque expose on the past of our beloved EFD.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:47pm Sybil:

Ooh, Danne, can't wait!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:47pm Holly in NC:

It's OK, Danne- I got called a 'c*nt' in the comment section of my blog because a seriously socially impaired person feels that I comment too frequently on other people's blogs. ?! This dude follows all the blogs I follow & reads my comments, freaky.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:48pm G:

That sandwich thingy.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:48pm kiemzi:

  Wed. 3/7/12 11:48pm Sybil:

That is seriously weird, Holly. But so goes the interwebs.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:49pm Danne D:

@Holly - sorry to hear that :(

Nobody's said anything to me about it, it's more of a self-assessment to be honest.
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:49pm Danne D:

You can also use the handy banner at the top of Evan's page and contribute $533.21 :)
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:50pm G:

Give them all the Congressional Medal of Wrangling
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:50pm Sybil:

You may indeed post-marathon pledge!!! And thanks to all who pledge or who pledged or who helped in any way whatsoever!

I'm about to pack up :) Have a great night everyone! Thanks for a great show as always, Evan!

I love that this band is named palomar. That is all G'night all!
  Wed. 3/7/12 11:55pm Sybil:

Thanks to our host Evan "Funk" Davies (notice me spelling out your name!) for all he does throughout the year.

Good night, Sybil!
Thank you, Evan! Lots of great new music tonight.
