Hi Holly, hi Danne!

Do I take an ordinal numeral and stand in line? :-)
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:09pm Mike East:

Hey guys!
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:10pm Destroit:

holly is the tops :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:10pm Holly in NC:

Ooops. Hi most gracious Evan!
Have to disconnect & drive home now, back asap
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:10pm Patrick:

Is this the Evan Davies "funk show"? I love that rupture says that every week!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:11pm Danne D:

I X Key! Um, what's an I X Key?
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:12pm Holly in NC:

Destroit :-)
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:12pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :) Well at least Halladay was nice enough to blow up against other players on my team!
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:12pm Danne D:

Is the IX Key near the "Any" key?
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:14pm Destroit:

PDS song is great. Simple but effective.
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:15pm G:

There was actually an X key on some keyboards in the 80s. It was like the command key on other keyboards. I X Key could explain if that's related or not...
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:16pm G:

  Wed. 5/2/12 9:18pm Barkevious Shabazz:

My brother Tim was the drummer for Robin Lane. He just completed a movie about her called A Woman's Voice. Robin Lane was once Neil Young's girlfriend (she might've been the cinnamon girl) and she does music therapy in MA these days. Helpfully, Will

Hi, I'm Todd. I'm listening as I said I would. 'cause I'm a man of my tweet.

Thanks Todd, I appreciate it! And hello to Destroit, Roberto, G, Patrick, Mike East, and all the rest of you!

Hi Tweetophonic Todd :) welcome aboard :)
Hi to all the other folks EFD listed as well :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Cheap Time! They offer a cheap, but fun time. Much like Evan Funk Davies Show!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:51pm john:

Hey folks! Neil's had a few stories about Cinnamon Girl, mostly because he was married when he wrote it in '68, so Robin Lane presumably wasn't "the" Cinnamon Girl, dates are kind of off by a couple years, but it's a nice thought, as she did sing on that album.
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:52pm Barkevious Shabazz:

So it's Cheap Time vs Red Mass for sheer skronk glory.
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:53pm Matt from Springfield:

EBM classics and rarities from 1980-1988! What's *not* to like?!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:55pm Joe D.:

Hey Evan! I think my cat digs your show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/12 9:57pm efd:

hey Joe! I think I dig your cat!

Greetings Matt, Barkevious (uh-oh, don't tell the cat) and john!
  Wed. 5/2/12 9:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Evan!
(Don't tell Joe's cat--it will get Bark-envious...)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:01pm Joe D.:

nah he's alright, he's real laid back, he's what you might call ONE COOL CAT

oh god I'm a cat person now officially aren't I
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:01pm Joe B:

and of course Robin Lane was the duet vocalist with Neil on Round and Round on Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:01pm Barkevious Shabazz:

In the waiting room where the vermin squirm. I gotta find a vet with some gottdam standards.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:02pm Danne D:

The Devils Dancers actually do a routine to this song (original version) - not exactly your typical dance routine fare.

This JSBE version is great :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:02pm _todd_:

  Wed. 5/2/12 10:03pm Roberto:

Anyone else hooked on the Charles County cat cam since Irwin posted the link a while back?
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:03pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Whither Ram Jam?
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:03pm Danne D:

@Joe B - not to be confused with EFD's performance of "Round and Round" at the 2007 Hoof N Mouth Finale :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:06pm Joe B:

DD, I almost added that exact clarification!
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Did EFD sing Ratt at the H&M, then?? Since it wasn't Neil's?
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:08pm Danne D:

For those not in the know, Evan's video is the 13th one on the left: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2007/03/post.html
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:11pm Danne D:

This Phillies-Braves game has been nutty.
6-0 Phils
Then 8-6 Braves
Then 12-8 Phils
Now 12-10 Phils but Braves have bases loaded.

  Wed. 5/2/12 10:12pm Danne D:

12-12 now
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:12pm john:

I'm just hopeful that game is blowing out the combined relief corps of half the teams in my other league, where you need set up men.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/12 10:12pm efd:

Joe D., when you start posting pics of this cat on Facebook then I'll believe it. (Also, then you'll be a cat person.)

Barkevious, I think Joe B. can give you a little bit of a Ram Jam update if he's still with us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/12 10:13pm efd:

Danne, I hope Johnny Venters isn't giving up any of those runs.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Danne!
Wow, and it has the "Knuckles the Dog" performance too!! :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:15pm Danne D:

13-12 Braves now.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:16pm Danne D:

Venters has not pitched, EFD.

@Matt yup, there's some good stuff in there.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:17pm Danne D:

A little hard to complain about McCann's inning-ending flyout there as he did have a Grand Slam (unfortunately off Halladay) earlier.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:17pm Danne D:

@EFD (I was properly discreet with that '07 Hoof N Mouth reference, no?)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:19pm Tom - In Gravesend Brooklyn:

one after the "Black Betty" RamJam "Portrait of the Artist As a Young Ram" ,,, one of my faves when it came out .. NO one had it but me !! hehe
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:21pm Danne D:

Kimbrel in - only chance Venters play is if it goes extras.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:21pm Nick H:

Not a bad Black Betty cover also done a few years ago by Australian band Spiderbait.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:22pm Danne D:

@Matt :) Watch 'em all and let me know your favorite
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:25pm Matt from Springfield:

I'll get around to 'em all :)

(Speaking of great EFD Hoof N Mouth performances)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:38pm Holly in NC:

@Matt in S. - Whenever you peruse the 2007 hoof & mouth videoa, make sure you check out miss Doug Schulkind's "Theme de YoYo". LOVE.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:38pm The Baker Doz of Broads:

  Wed. 5/2/12 10:40pm Danne D:

2-out Bases loaded for braves. Bottom of 9th. 13-13
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Theme de YoYo? I'll check that, wonder what that is..

@Evan: "dean parrish" by tell her.. ;)

  Wed. 5/2/12 10:44pm Holly in NC:

efd, digging the Rainy Day Saints, very 80s anthemic
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:44pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Listening to the guy in the renegades mangle the chords at the start of their classic, I'm convinced that the better a player you are, the less likely you are to come up with good music. You end up wearing a fooking cape like that twat Rick Wakeman.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:45pm Danne D:

going to extras in atlanta
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:48pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious - James Brown owns the cape action. And Screaming Jay. And maybe Screaming Lord Sutch?
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:48pm Danne D:

They will be going to a 5th period (aka 2nd Overtime) in Washington between the Caps and Rag$.

Boyle took a hard shot right to the face with like 1 second left in OT1.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:49pm G:

extra innings phillies braves, 13 runs and 17 hits each
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:51pm Kendall!:


Can't believe the Rangers-Caps game is still going.
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:52pm Danne D:

Perhaps I'm searching the accuplaylist wrong - but I can't find another playing of the Renegades' 13 Women by EFD this year!
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:53pm Danne D:

Also a certain team that will remain nameless is (temporarily) back in 1st place as of this moment :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 10:53pm G:

He played it in the 2011 sum up show

  Wed. 5/2/12 11:10pm Danne D:

Chipper Jones Homer to end it! 15-13 Braves.
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:11pm G:

Pitcher got Jones down 0-2 and could not polish him off after about 7 or 8 pitches...
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:11pm Danne D:

Venters did not give up the homer. Had 1 inning, 2K, 0 hits.
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:11pm Skirkie:

I hate sports. Whats happening in here?
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:13pm eddy:

"heartache avenue" was actually a big hit in england at the time - possibly even top 10.
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:15pm G:

Wikipedia, Maisonettes: "Their debut single, "Heartache Avenue", reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart in 1982, and later peaked at number 12 on the Canadian chart and number 97 in Australia in early 1983. The song was discovered by David Virr in a pile of demo tapes in his office, and had been recorded in Birmingham by singer Lol Mason, guitarist Mark Tibenham, and session drummer Nick Parry. Virr decided to put it out on his own label, which he named Ready Steady Go!"

  Wed. 5/2/12 11:21pm Short Order Guy:

How the f--- d'ya make a Ticket Salad Sandwich??? Jeez.
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:23pm G:

Can't resist this bit from the Maisonettes entry in Wiki: "To fill out the band, two teenage models, Denise Ward and Elaine Williams, were recruited as backing vocalists (although "Heartache Avenue" had been recorded with different female singers. As it turned out, however, Ward and Williams could not harmonize well enough to sing with the band live or in the studio, though by the time this was decided, they had already appeared often with the group in media photos and miming on television."
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@Short Order: Easy man: ya call WFMU, 201-209-9368, get the tickets, and just make the chicken salad with the tickets instead.

Hey, and when I get the sandwich, can I sub the chips for coleslaw?
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:29pm Short Order Guy:

  Wed. 5/2/12 11:31pm Droll:

Short Order Guy, Are you talking about The Maisonettes vocalists, or the Midnight Ticket Oasis?
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:32pm Short Order Guy:

No substitutions is a good policy in any line o' work. Give 'em an inch, they take a mile, yknow?
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:32pm Holly in NC:

@droll - nice!
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:33pm Danne D:

Danne: Sports reporting through 3 overtimes--so we don't have to! :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:34pm G:

OK, Skirkie, let's have the hockey comment :-)
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, early Abba! Very power pop sound, not what I would've expected from them!
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:37pm Glenn:

I can't believe this. An ABBA song that doesn't make me want to throw up!
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:41pm Danne D:

LOL Skirkie just mad about his coaching misdeed - we've all been there :)

Exciting game - all should tune in after EFD if you are so inclined :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:46pm Skirkie:

I've had enough extra sports for tonight. Y'all let me know how it goes.
  Wed. 5/2/12 11:47pm G:

I was hoping for funny :-)
