Hi Evan! Will be quiet, but listening.

Hi Holly - works for me! :)

hey all...

hey there steve! Thanks for checking in.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:23pm G:

Present and unaccountable.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Won Triumvirate's "Illusions on a Double Dimple" on a radio station giveaway when I was a wee bairn. When the package finally arrived, what was in it but the spectacular Carol Douglas lp, "Dr.'s Orders.". It didn't go over at the time, but in hindsight I probably made out ok.:
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:32pm Kristina:

Evan, thank you so much! That made my night! I used to love that song and we had it on vinyl when we were kids!
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:33pm SteveL:

Apparently, I am in time for something amazing.

Life is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 9:36pm efd:

@Kristina, it's my pleasure! And even better that it was a song you like! :)

Greetings SteveL, G and Barkevious! Thanks for listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 9:36pm efd:

Also, I don't want to oversell the "amazing" song, but... it really is pretty amazing!!
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:39pm steve:

what time is Mystery Amazing Record time? 11:30? i gotta make sure im in front of the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 9:39pm efd:

no no, it's after this set!
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:41pm G:

Maybe We're Amazed...
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:45pm SteveL:

The Paul McCartney/Johnny Rotten Christmas duet?
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:46pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Cuffs is tops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 9:46pm efd:

@SteveL, it IS seasonal -- just not that season.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:47pm SteveL:

Damn! I'm good! A clue!
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:49pm steve:

i was gonna guess something baseball themed

I stand by my description.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:01pm Danne D:

"jojjon a nyar!" is the new "13 Women" I think :D
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:01pm SteveL:

  Wed. 8/22/12 10:02pm Kat in Chicago:

  Wed. 8/22/12 10:02pm Taylor:

Yea, Evan Funk Davies, you are correct. The world is yours. TAKE IT
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:02pm Danne D:

  Wed. 8/22/12 10:02pm ADL:

Two alarmed thumbs up!
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:02pm SteveL:

Take it Danne D!
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:03pm Danne D:

What language is Rock the Boat in?
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:04pm Kat in Chicago:

also I don't think I've ever seen EFD use swears on the playlist that weren't actually in a song title/band name. wow
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:04pm Danne D:

I always screw up and call this by the wrong name :(
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:04pm Danne D:

was kinda hoping it'd be a whole foreign language set :)
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:05pm Danne D:

@Kat No Fucking Kidding :)
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:05pm steve:

wow, i almost started applauding at my desk
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:08pm B52s:

bang bang bang on the door baby...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 10:08pm efd:

I think the level of excitement I was feeling before playing that record might be unhealthy.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:12pm Kat in Chicago:

This Bang The Party thing is insane. Not as insane as a Hungarian version of "Sound of Summer". But pretty out there nonetheless.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:13pm steve:

if that aint chicago, where is it? couldnt be new york
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:13pm SteveL:

It IS in Fucking Hungarian, after all.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:15pm SteveL:

Good CRAP The Limiñanas are good.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:20pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Goulash mafia yo.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:22pm Duran x 2:

Hungarian Like The Wolf
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:24pm Danne D:

FMU being FMU, this is NOT the first time Neoton Familia has been played on FMU (though fear not, EFD, this is the first time that version of Sound of Summer has been played)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 10:27pm efd:

Oh believe me, I already checked!
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:29pm SteveL:

This is a grand and glorious geekfest. I heartily approve.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:29pm Danne D:

You are a true pro, EFD :)
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:31pm SteveL:

How's the rest of the Wicked Lady stuff? I liked that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 10:32pm efd:

@SteveL, it's good! I played another track 2-3 weeks ago that you can check out on the archive, but it's that same general sound/feel.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:35pm Danne D:

I shall return - have to get something from the store
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:46pm Queesh:

So bored. Wfmu will save the day!!

  Wed. 8/22/12 11:03pm Kat in Chicago:

Very nice indeed. Figures it's on Trouble In Mind.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:03pm Queesh:

:) indeed
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:04pm Belmondo:

Hi Evan,
I produce a podcast-mixtape called "Podcast do Belmondo" from Sao Paulo. This week's episode is dedicated to WFMU's DJs Evan 'Funk' Davies, Joe Belock and Terre T. Take a look and listen at podcastdobelmondo.blogspot.com or at ITS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/22/12 11:08pm efd:

@Belmondo Sounds cool, I'll check it out!

@Julie, that Jacco Gardner is in the singles new bin in case you're looking for it later. :)
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:08pm jmd:

OK, a little weird but the singer's voice reminds me a bit of a young Rob Halford.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:10pm jmd:

...in a good way.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:11pm Danne D:

Julie :)

That reminds me there was one mistake in my swagmas packaging...need to rectify that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/22/12 11:24pm Julie:

@Danne did I forget to enclose strands of Robert Smith's hair?
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:36pm Danne D:

@Julie lol no. But there was a different premium in my package than yours which was an unfortunate error. The authorities have been notified :)
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:42pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Hives track kicks ass. As does kross.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:47pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Wow--Milk'n'Cookies haven't played in about thirty years
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:56pm Danne D:

I kicked in a little scratch for Adam Warrock EFD :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/22/12 11:58pm Julie:

ahh this is such a great song..
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:58pm Danne D:

Have a good night everyone :)
Thanks for your usual excellence EFD :)
