Hey, Lamin got your name right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 9:05pm efd:

Lamin knows what's up.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:06pm Jorge:

Oh man, haven't heard Ladytron in ages. Forgot how much I dug 'em. Thanks efd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 9:07pm efd:

Jorge, I had the exact same thought last night!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:07pm G:

Not this show's genre, but the death of Earl Scruggs just hit the newswires...
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:09pm Ajax:

Starting w/the '70s?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:09pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hey hey EFD! I'll chime in with my love for Ladytron, too. Good band, and then I inevitably think of the Roxy Music song, so bonus points.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:10pm Thierry:

Hi Evan! Trying to solve insomnia, but lost tonight. But, some good aspects come along with it..
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:11pm Destroit:

hello efd and all the good people. glad to be listening!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:12pm Jorge:

Efd's got the party pumpin' tonight.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:15pm Ajax:

Oh I missed Calhoon, sorry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 9:16pm efd:

Greetings Ajax, Jorge, Thierry, Wendy, Destroit, G and everyone else! Thanks for tuning in tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 9:16pm efd:

G, I would look to Mr. The Spazz, perhaps, to play some Earl Scruggs tomorrow evening. Sad news.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:17pm Destroit:

Big Who fan. Every Who fan I know hates this song. I like it, no idea why, nor does it matter.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:18pm SteveL:

Long time since I've listened to The Who. This is such a cool song, and this helps make that point. I'm guessing Townsend did the keys?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:18pm Danne D:

People Forget!
They Forget they're hiding!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:18pm G:

Yep, the Beverly Hillbillies theme doesn't always segue too well into or out of Eminence Front
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:19pm Danne D:

(this song mostly applies to aged mafia bosses)
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:19pm steve:

what is goin on here? is this really the who?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:20pm Danne D:

Just took the Jeopardy! online test - think I came up short :( mad that I missed some gimmees. Though I didn't study at all for it and actually felt good on some of em
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:20pm Danne D:

In other news - greetings everyone!

Anyone interested in buying a spare catcher?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:21pm G:

@steve: someone isolated just the keys part of the song, for your listening pleasure
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:21pm Danne D:

And Congrats to EFD - after that draft he's going to smash all of us in the league :(
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:22pm SteveL:

@steve: "The backing track for live performance." Check the link. Pretty darned cool.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:22pm Danne D:

@G they should do that for "I Ran" by a Flock of Seagulls
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:22pm steve:

thanks G.! thats totally awesome
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:23pm motorhead/girlschool. ep:

I am the best record ever.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:23pm Destroit:

Outstanding suggestion Danne.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:23pm PB:

Townshend was a genius, but that was many, many years ago.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:25pm G:

it looks like a tech/boardop would trigger that keyboard part at the right moment in a Who setlist, and the live (?) Who would play the rest of the song over it
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:27pm SteveL:

@Danne D.: You're just jealous that Mr. Seagull, (I forget his name.) only needed ONE FINGER to make that remarkable music!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:27pm Danne D:

Since the 2nd half of Lamin's show was technically a fill in for Rupture did he give the customary "Evan Davies Funk Show" intro?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:28pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Mike Score. Ick.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:28pm Danne D:

with horns to get ya going and bass to bump your trunk!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:28pm Danne D:

@SteveL not true - sometimes that finger got tired and he had to switch to a different finger
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:30pm G:

Their tech was the Keith Emerson of the sequencer.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:31pm 12539:

@Danne, no, Lamin got it right. He knows better than that JD Rupture guy.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:32pm Lawyer:

Tupture, J.D.?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:34pm Cubicle Carl:

That's still cool because if you actually see the Who in concert, it's pretty much performed by guys who are not really in the Who.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:35pm Danne D:

@12539 I think it's part of Rupture's charm :) I suspect it was a mistake the first time or two and now it's more of an inside joke :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:36pm Marmalade Kitty:

I always opened archives with the 128k mp3 under i tunes. recently it is starting with quicktime. does anyone know why this might be?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:38pm Jorge:

Marmalade - have you updated quicktime recently? A recent update might have associated that file type with quicktime by default.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:39pm G:

@Carl: They outsourced all that detailed playing to cheap-working rockers from Mumbai.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:40pm Marmalade Kitty:

thanks jorge, no I haven't..
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:41pm Dave B:

Sorry I'm tardy to the party. Was getting all OCD on my library...

MKitty - if rocking OS X try:

All you have to do, is select a file in the Finder and ‘Get Information’ (cmd + i or right-click > Get Info or cmd + click > Get Info) for it. Then toggle the ‘Open with…’ option and choose the proper application.

To make sure that every file of that type (every php file for example) uses the new application, make sure you choose that option below the application drop down box (it may be grayed out until you’ve chosen an alternate application from the current default
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:41pm Mike East:

Good evening, everyone
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:41pm Marmalade Kitty:

I know what it is someone was messing with my pc settings.. don't you just hate that!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:44pm Marmalade Kitty:

Danne what is OS X?I hate quick time..
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:44pm Dave B:

fer windows, check this.


the file extension . M3U is what'cher looking for
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:46pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Cronin kicks ass.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:50pm Cubicle Carl:

Wrong Words have that late 70's/early 80's indie single thing going on.
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:50pm Dave B:

"Just follow these simple steps, and you can enjoy an exciting career in PC support. And the tools are yours to keep"

or, "try turning it off and on again" -
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:50pm Scuttle:

Televisionesque guitar!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:54pm Joe B:

Mean Magic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 9:56pm efd:

goddammit I love that Mean Magic song!!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:56pm Andy Kaufman:

Hey, *I* have that record!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:57pm Danne D:

Yay Adam Warrock :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:57pm Marmalade Kitty:

how can i change from quicktime to itunes?
  Wed. 3/28/12 9:59pm Thierry:

Adam Warrock always awesome! Automatic adrenaline. (lots of A's here..) Is he mainstream, famous, in the US?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 10:02pm efd:

Thierry, not yet! :D
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:02pm Marmalade Kitty:

I hate my pc right now!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:07pm Danne D:

*sigh* my guesstimate is that I got about 30/50 right on my Jeopardy test :( no way that's good enough :(
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:07pm Marmalade Kitty:

I'm sorry.. my hissy fit..
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:09pm Winston:

@Danne Man's time is done. Hahahahaha!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:11pm Danne D:

I don't get the reference Winston. Probably why I didn't pass the Jeopardy! test this time. Considering I did zero prep though I did reasonably well I think.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:12pm Watson:

My name is Watson, you impostor. What's your real name, nutjob? HAL? :-P
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:13pm Watson:

  Wed. 3/28/12 10:14pm Danne D:

  Wed. 3/28/12 10:16pm Wilson:

  Wed. 3/28/12 10:16pm Winston:

Smoke coming from earvent-I'll get you, Watson!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:17pm Wilson:

@Winston - "Tastes good, like a good cigarette should"
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:17pm Danne D:

yay Keili :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:18pm Watson:

Winston tastes bad
Like the one I just had
No filter, no flavor
They use toilet paper

Yes, sing Daisy for me, "Winston," while I pull these memory sticks out.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:19pm Danne D:

@Wilson - "He Kept Us Out Of War"

(in the first term anyway)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:22pm Earl of Wilton:

you rang?
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:23pm Stilton:

Lotta cheesy humor here.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:25pm Piltdown:

Embarrassing, isn't it, Winston?
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:25pm Rush Limburger:

@Stilton - that stinks....
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:27pm Amanda:

Yay Explorers Club!

Hi EFD and everybody!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:28pm Cubicle Carl:

explorers club vocalist sounds like Carl Wilson
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:28pm Danne D:

Seems I can derail the comments board barely trying now!

And here's Amanda to save the day :) Yay :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:29pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hi Amanda!
I love this Explorers Club song. It's what I consider to be a perfect pop song. And with that I'm going to sleep. Goodnight everyone! :-)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:29pm Potent Potables:

Mmmmmmm. Cheese.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:30pm Amanda:

I am always on message. Caught the Explorers Club at Maxwell's a few weeks ago (Evan was at Hoof & Mouth practice) and they killed it!
Wendy -- miss you, and hi!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:32pm john:

Hey Evan! This is way better than the fake Bobby Kennedy "Wild Thing!" Play ball!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:33pm Danne D:

G'night Wendy :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:33pm john:

Oh come on, is it possible to have enough of fake interview records?
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:33pm Danne D:

Wow - hearing this now I want to hear "Energy Crisis"
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:34pm Rob in Maryland:

I agree with John at 10:32.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:35pm Danne D:

Dickie Goodman in 1974 - probably the most famous one :) Energy Crisis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaPqzgTc9OE
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:36pm john:

Good stuff, but better known than Mr Jaws?
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:37pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & all! Looks like a great show!
@Danne - I still have my very, very scratchy Energy Crisis 45" :-)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:38pm Danne D:

@John Energy Crisis is the one I remember and given that I was 4 when it came out I think that says a lot :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:38pm Sybil:

Good Wednesday evenimg!

I hate my current schedule. There. i said it.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:39pm Marmalade Kitty:

great set there, efd!!!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:39pm Danne D:

bye Sybil :)
sorry your schedule is bad :(
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:40pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Where will the Dickinson Goodman of tomorrow could? De
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:41pm john:

Danne, it sure does! And hi Sybil!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:44pm Danne D:

Guess you're right John, based on sales, but I'll always think of Energy Crisis first in that regard (probably enhanced by the fact that he did another version in '79)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:44pm john:

I think the voice of Bobby Kennedy on Wild Thing was actually Teddy. And what condiments do you use in a ticket salad sandwich, anyway? Sounds awfully soggy.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:45pm Danne D:

I'm a big fan of John Wesley Harding the 1st
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:47pm Ticket Salad:

I am very high in non-nutritive fiber, specifically the cellulose in cardboard. There are also some useful trace minerals in certain shades of ink.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:47pm Danne D:

Um, goner site says this is by John Wesley Coleman ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 10:49pm efd:

ehh, coleman, harding, whatever! :}

(thanks for the catch!)
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:53pm Danne D:

So I've corrected a Petty about a NASCAR question and EFD about a record now in the same month. Somehow I feel good about neither. Next stop - correcting Santa Claus.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:54pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Wilder, the forgotten, far superior of the 2 Teardrops albs. Cheers EFD!
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:54pm Destroit:

John Wesley Coleman just shot a man just fer snorin'
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:56pm Carolyn:

I love The Normals. Thanks Evan.
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:58pm Marmalade Kitty:

the show just gets better , efd! I didn't resolve the quicktime issue, will look into that at a more sensible hour! As for now, just chilling out with a glass of wine some late food and tunes :D
  Wed. 3/28/12 10:59pm Thierry:

Came back to my memory the line 'To bunt or not to bunt, that is the question'. Yesterday, I was searching on the Internet for the whole Baseball/Hamlet monologue, and could not find anything. Any clue anybody?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 11:00pm efd:

Hey Carolyn, my pleasure! And hi to Barkevious, Holly, Sybil, john, M. Kitty, Rob, Wendy, Amanda, Carl, Joe B., Dave B., Mike East, and all!
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:01pm Danne D:

Of course Evan can make up for the error by playing some John Wesley Harding :) (who actually has a new album that was recently released)
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:01pm glenn:

thierry, is this what you mean? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhQ9aeCE8Oo

@MK, when you click the link to open the stream, don't you get a little window with a pulldown menu with a choice of which application to use?
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:05pm steve:

hey... this sounds like rock and or roll
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:11pm Danne D:

Tellin' ya EFD - Brain Salad Surgery (the song)
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:12pm Marmalade Kitty:

I always get a windows message prompt; file download: open or save? (name wfmu.pls... type:PLS Audio Playlist, 124 bytes... from:www.wfmu.org) and so on..

I'm sure theres a simple solution :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:15pm Danne D:

Thought about going for those English Beat tickets - but I think I will leave them to a more deserving winner
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:15pm Danne D:

@MK - I always use itunes if I have to go pls (like for Amanda's show)
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:17pm Parq:

Sorry to just drop in like this, but this Stevie cover is grabbing me by the collar and shaking me.
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:19pm 12539:

@MK: Sounds like you are using Explorer. Firefox lets you choose iTunes at that prompt window. Explorer makes you go several layers into the settings menus and set defaults.
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:20pm Thierry:

@glenn - yes, thanks glenn, sth like this humor, but I did not here the line, nor the monologue. Maybe it never existed but for the first few lines. It's already funny though, and I can imagine even more for you guys raised on Shakespeare.
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:22pm Marmalade Kitty:

@Danne, I'm safest with itunes! @12539: yes, you're right
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:28pm Holly in NC:

  Wed. 3/28/12 11:29pm Parq:

The blasting first Furs album. Has anyone ever counted the number of times the word "stupid" pops up on this album?
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:30pm Danne D:

Did The Fall ever do a song called "The Psychadelic Furs"?
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:30pm SteveL:

Great f-ing album. Great. Can't remember how many times I listened to this tape while traveling, driving in town, anywhere.
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:31pm Holly in NC:

  Wed. 3/28/12 11:31pm SteveL:

AAaaannd THANK YOU for going into the next track.

Hey Parq. He just said "Stupid" again. Everybody drink!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/28/12 11:33pm efd:

SteveL (and Holly), I *HAD* to let it play through - that transition is too ingrained in my memory to do otherwise.
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:33pm Danne D:

everybody loves EFD :)
  Wed. 3/28/12 11:34pm SteveL:

efd: It would have been VERY jarring without continuing to the next track. Great call.
