Listener comments!

  Wed. 8/29/12 9:09pm McG:

Playing the show really loud to the neighbors can hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 9:09pm efd:

Alright, McG! That's the way to do it!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:12pm SteveL:

Neighbors? You don't need no stinkin' neighbors!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:13pm EL:

This is a rowdy opener. I like it! I like it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 9:16pm efd:

whoops, slowing it down a little bit now, EL! Thanks for listening!

Hi SteveL, thanks to you as well!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:17pm McG:

I can dig the slow jam.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:20pm McG:

That Gap Dream song was excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 9:21pm efd:

They are amazing! That album would be a lock for #1 in any year without a new dB's album.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:27pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & funky friends! Not yet listening, sadly. 10:30ish!
Gap Dream lp is great.

Note to all: Making one's Google Calendar public to clients before blocking out private time is a rather bad idea.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:29pm Some Funked up Guy:

Sweet set, thanks!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:31pm McG:

Delaware boys, The Spinto Band are opening for The DB's at Maxwells 9/1. I'm a big fan of them myself. They are very tight, fun to watch.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:35pm McG:

I like when you talk about baseball. It's something I know little about, so I feel like I am learning something.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:36pm john:

Actually, some of us do tune in for your opinions on baseball. And for what it's worth, I think it had to be done. From the Sawx perspective, I approve of getting rid of some of those guys (and Shoppach, who was one of the instigators of the clubhouse toxicity), but James Loney is no, umm, James Loney.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:36pm Kat in Chicago:

Was the guy in DM3 devastated by DEV UH STAY TUH?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 9:44pm efd:

haha Kat, maybe I should do a "devastater/d" theme set sometime.

john, I appreciate that! I agree all around with your comments. I'd be surprised if Loney is back with the Sox next year.

McG, I'll make a point of catching the Spinto Band on Saturday!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:47pm EL:

Went for a jog with the wife and missed the Marked Men! Thank goodness for the archive.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:49pm SteveL:

Where were The Features from? Great song.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:49pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Song title of the decade-Floozie of the Neighborhood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 9:49pm efd:

That'll teach you to exercise!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:49pm EL:

Never again!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:57pm john:

OK, so there's got to be a Dawnie Iris connection there somewhere...
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:57pm Barkevious Shabazz:

You can take the kid outta Allegheny county..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 9:59pm efd:

Those are dots you'll have to connect, john.

Hey Barkevious!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:02pm Barkevious Shabazz:

How do!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:23pm Cynthia:

I have been completely obsessed with steve harley and cockney rebel all summer!!!!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:25pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hi Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:29pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 10:31pm efd:

kind of talked myself into a corner there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 10:33pm efd:

Hey Cynthia! I've always loved "Come Up And See Me," of course, but haven't explored much beyond that. I like the LP I played tonight though!

Hi Richard, good to see you!

Barkevious, the copy said "tatty." I verbally autocorrected it.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:35pm michele:

I've heard this dBs song (that time is gone) a bunch lately - seems like an old friend already. Oh, wow - old school dBs.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:35pm Barkevious Shabazz:

My autoincorrect is always in full effect.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:36pm michele:

how about triple play "Big Brown Eyes" or "Amplifier"?
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:36pm McG:

Awesome show tonight EFD. Really enjoyed it.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:37pm will:

I have this single (Soul Kiss)!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:40pm michele:

Great show so far Evan!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:40pm Holly in NC:

Waaayyy late on comment board: Love love that Paul Messis 7"! And everyone please send good thoughts toward Dan & Letha (Rodman) Melchior, if you have good thoughts to spare.

Now db's bliss xo
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 10:43pm efd:

oh yes, Holly, all best wishes to Dan and Letha. Glad you're here - better late than never!

michele, thanks! I'm going to try to squeeze one of those songs in.

Hey will, yeah, the single version has the nice little coda; that's about 6 tracks away on the 'wild tom tom' CD.

McG, thanks!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:50pm michele:

thanks Evan! you made my night!
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:54pm Rickwaukee:

righteous set o'db's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 10:55pm efd:

Once I start I can't stop! (although I am going to stop after this song)
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:02pm Ignore Function:

Good thoughts to Letha and Dan for sure.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:05pm Ignore Function:

Good show also.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:05pm Holly in NC:

Aside from everything involving Mittens, his scarily idiotic VP candidate, and the usual GOP excuses for warmongering, Condee's speechwriter actually kicked some ass. I wonder if anyone will notice? And will he/she be fired?
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:06pm michele:

how 'bout some Posies PowerPop? Solar Sister
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:08pm Jose Bautista:

Yo, just chillin out listening to your show man. Fantasy 2013, let me in to your line up bro.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:09pm seang:

The Vaselines in Brooklyn tomorrow night!
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:11pm Rickwaukee:

@seang: lucky
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 11:11pm efd:

wow, Jose Bautista! Sorry you're out for the year, but nice job your teammates did against the Yankees this week.

seang, wow, I can't keep up! Are you going? (And thanks for listening/commenting)

michele, don't press your luck! :) I'm going in a slightly different direction, I think, at least for now.

oh, and hi/thanks Ignore Function and Rickwaukee!
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:14pm seang:

I sure am. I'm coming down from Boston.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:14pm michele:

okay i'm just gonna sit back and enjoy your surprises - thanks Evan
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:16pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Why'd they have to let a dude cover this Dynasty standout?
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:18pm Rickwaukee:

having a 70's blashfack
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:18pm Holly in NC:

Oh yay, an excellentKiss cover...wait,, AND then dirty deeds ?!!!!

  Wed. 8/29/12 11:19pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Bon Scott. Replaced by a janitor.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:25pm Holly in NC:

Pre- ACDC Bon was a shit -shoveller, literally! & he & Brian were friends, I think.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:28pm Ignore Function:

Apache Dropout are great. Nice guys, too.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:31pm Holly in NC:

@Ignore Function - Sounds like you know the band, if so, pls tell then I'm a huge fan!
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:32pm Barkevious Shabazz:

You'd have to hope that Bon Scott whisteled Rip Rigs Knee Deeo in Shit whilst plying his trade.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:35pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious - :-)
And efd, thank you for this RRP
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:37pm ?:

thought that was rip, rig and panic. You can't even find them anymore. They ruled!!!!
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:39pm Ignore Function:

Don't know them but I talked to em' for at probably 45 minutes after their show.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:46pm Holly in NC:

I wish someone would tell Foreign Mothers that people temporarily sans turntable would *happily* pay $ for a digital dl...
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:49pm Rickwaukee:

I guess not the same METZ playing tomorrow at Pianos and Fri. at Death by Audio
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/29/12 11:50pm efd:

No, it is not! That is an unrelated Sub Pop (I think) recording artist.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:55pm Andrew Waterloo:

the Sub Pop Metz is really too. More the loud and noisy variety.
