Hi cheri, my weekend was good.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:17pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 5/30/12 9:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I've been busy at work for several hours. Is the 90.1 WMFU transmitter up yet? Will be relying on that for the trip home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:17pm efd:

No I am not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:19pm efd:

Hi Ken, it came back on the air this afternoon - still up and running afaik
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

According to the main WFMU web page, it is not up. Al-righty, then.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:20pm SteveL:

Did we actually have a week sans memorial subjects?
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:21pm SteveL:

...other than Memorial Day, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:21pm efd:

hm... Ken emailed the staff this afternoon and mentioned it was back up. You'll have to give us the definitive word when you get home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:21pm efd:

Stevel, as far as my show is concerned, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:22pm efd:

that's not to say there haven't been sad/notable passings, of course.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:23pm Mike East:

Hello Evan and commenters.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:23pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 5/30/12 9:24pm Holly in NC:

Hi efd! :-)
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:25pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 5/30/12 9:26pm Holly in NC:

And Sun Ra returned to Saturn on this day in 1993 ...
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:26pm SteveL:

True. Doc Watson. He had a great run. How old was he?

Pete Cosey?
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:26pm SteveL:

"Communicated to Death " is my favorite song title of the year.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:26pm seang:

these dudes are playing in Somerville, MA tonight, Union Square
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:29pm Holly in NC:

@SteveL - 89.
Pete Cosey - amazing guitar player, best known for playing on Miles Davis' early 70s freakiest (and wonderful) lps
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:29pm Destroit:

I Can't think of a better title ever SteveL, right on.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:30pm Holly in NC:

Pete Cosey was also a session player @ Chess in the 60s.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:34pm Destroit:

Yes yes, park bar is a nice spot!
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:47pm Holly in NC:

Love ruckus roboticus!
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:48pm SteveL:

I do not object to a good ruckus.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:48pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Frank and Cookie keep asking me to spin the disco ball again. and bisquits.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:50pm Destroit:

I've got the yellow flag in my hand..
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:54pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Bull Terriers don't present quite the hazard one might suspect. Brawny tho.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:55pm Destroit:

Flag back in pocket. Like the cruise family song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:55pm efd:

Barkevious, are Frank and Cookie your Bullies?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 9:55pm efd:

uh-oh, I was just writing that I wasn't sure if the yellow flag was a good thing or a bad thing.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:56pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@EFD Dern tootin'. Just back from Boot Camp today. Little angels.
  Wed. 5/30/12 9:57pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 5/30/12 10:17pm Destroit:

  Wed. 5/30/12 10:17pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 5/30/12 10:17pm SteveL:

Be nice, or Albert may not feel welcome.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:25pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Is the Cruise Family a project by Pablo and Julee?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 10:34pm efd:

at least you didn't say Tom. :)
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@EFD Knew I missed one but this godawful cold is destroying mine brain. Arrrghh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 10:37pm efd:

I'm heartened by the fact that you thought of Julee Cruise and Pablo Cruise first.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:38pm Rick Schindler:

Yo, what was that song a few minutes ago with the lyric "I can see everything, and I can hear everything..." Anybody know? I liked it.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:39pm marc:

Ah the Great Captain Fantastic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 10:40pm efd:

Much maligned in the past by me, I have to admit, but hearing that song over the weekend really opened my ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 10:41pm efd:

Rick, I'm guessing it was the English Singles song...? The Literature LP has a lyric sheet, and the song I played doesn't have those words in it.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:41pm marc:

Julee Cruise from the "Twin Peaks" Roadhouse?? "Falling"
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:47pm Holly in NC:

Y'know, I've always confused "Pujol" with Dave PAJO, & while I like Slint well enough I never connected with Tortoise in the slightest so...anyway, I do like Pujol. thanks efd!

** I REALLY like this Sandstone!!!
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:50pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Besides, Tom Cruise will be rolling in it from the $5 in box office that "Rock of Aged" will rake in opening weekend.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:51pm SteveL:

"Kind of" sneered at Capt. Fantastic?

Yes, I did not love the cover art. Hard to follow Good Bye Yellowbrick Road
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:52pm miss cheri:

g'night holly,,,see ya soon
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:52pm marc:

I grew up in the 70s with WABC...
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:53pm SteveL:

"Someone say-uv, someone say-uv!"
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:53pm john:

I saw you were listening to that and I tuned in for most of the day Monday. Flashbacks to my childhood were cool, but getting the 1968 election updates even cooler. Good to hear that nice Mr Koch would be returned to Congress. I hear he may have quite a career ahead of him.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:54pm marc:

"Good Bye Yellow Brick Road" Is my favorite song of All-Time.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:55pm Rick Schindler:

No, I figured it out -- it was the dB's, the adventures of albatross and doggerel. Thanks, efd!
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:56pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Evan and all the listeners. Late, but sure.
  Wed. 5/30/12 10:58pm miss cheri:

marc--my fave elton john tune is "tiny dancer"!
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:01pm Barkevious Shabazz:

My fave label is Douche Master!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 11:02pm efd:

Hey Rick, cool - that whole dB's album is so great!

john, I loved that they kept some of the news reports and commercials. Marc - check out rewoundradio.com, I think there are airchecks there that you can listen to on-demand. It'll definitely bring back memories!

Hi Richard, I never doubted you! :) Thanks for checking in.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:04pm Holly in NC:

Latest Cheap Time is wonderful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 11:04pm efd:

I love the new Cheap Time album. It's like Howard Devoto backed by early Roxy Music.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:07pm Rick Schindler:

Thanks again, Evan, I'm going to check that dB's album out. I didn't realize it was NEW dB's -- first studio album in 25 years, and with the original lineup no less.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:10pm Holly in NC:

I'm squishing your head! xoxoxoxoxo
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:14pm Randy in NC:

Hi all. Out of town and not able to listen, but checking the playlist. A rare Connells show at the Cats Cradle June 16.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:14pm Barkevious Shabazz:

MMA tix on next week's Ticket Salad?
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I can report that 90.1 is up and running. It's safe to go outside again.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:15pm Holly in NC:

Everyone should see SCOTS at least once. Fun.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:17pm Holly in NC:

Hi Randy in NC! Between dbs in Durham 6/9 & the Connells in Ch-hill 6/16, we are so lucky!
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:18pm Randy (actually not) in NC:

@Holly, re SCOTS, so true!
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:21pm esha:

hey evan, which pharaoh overlord album is this song off of?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 11:22pm efd:

Hi esha, I just filled in the rest of the info (was on the phone with ticket callers) - it's called Lunar Jetman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 11:24pm efd:

Hey Randy, thanks for checking in even though you can't listen! Very cool news about the Connells show down there.

And yes, SCOTS are definitely a must-see, especially for fans of banana pudding and fried chicken!
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:24pm Holly in NC:

I like doomy-Earthy Pharaoah Overlord, such as this, better than "Devastator" style PO. Many fellow listeners probably disagree. Not that there's anything wrong with Devastator..
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:25pm miss cheri:

evan thnx for a real killer show tonight!! catch ya next week! night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 11:26pm efd:

Chacune a sa goute, Holly! :)

goodnight, cheri.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:28pm john:

This Monochrome Set elpee may be my album of the year so far. Or not. It's like they never left.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:29pm Barkevious Shabazz:

  Wed. 5/30/12 11:33pm Holly in NC:

@efd - At first I figured that was an obscure Kids in the Hall reference - I have next to no French. But now I have that phrase, at least!
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:38pm Holly in NC:

So far Dark Entries (the label) has done no wrong. Really impressed.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:39pm esha:

wow that song was great
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:41pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Against all odds, if you insist on digging the late 70s synth stuff, the Human League's "Travelogue" really stands up, not sounding the least dated.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:42pm Holly in NC:

efd, you're killing it, this is my favorite song on this lp (King Tuff)
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:44pm Barkevious Shabazz:

King Tuff. Pretty much tops.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:48pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :(
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:51pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hi Danne. What happen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/30/12 11:52pm efd:

Hi Danne! I assume from your emoticon that the Devils lost.
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:56pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne!
  Wed. 5/30/12 11:59pm G:

Devils pucked up, lost 2-1 in OT. No celebratory chocolate run tonight...
  Thu. 5/31/12 12:00am Holly in NC:

As always, thank you Evan.
Danne, hugs
  Thu. 5/31/12 12:01am Danne D:

Yes. :(

Looking forward to your archive cheering me up :)

Still a long series to go :) Devils lost game 1 in their last 2 series also.

good night funk fans :)
  Thu. 5/31/12 12:01am Danne D:

Thx Holly, efd, Richard and (I think) G
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:26pm Ajax:

Great show Evan. I'm always getting the ObnIII's mixed up with the Obits. I wish they had differenter names.
  Sun. 6/10/12 9:00pm deidra lynn:
