Hi Evan and everyone. Packing a couple WFMU shirts for Gonerfest in the background.
Avatar 9:10pm Holly in NC:

@Alex - Gonerfest lineup looks GREAT! So happy for/jealous of you :-)
  9:11pm jon:

damn! 1974 and the first kc record. good get efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm efd:

@Alex, ditto what Holly said. Have a great time! Greetings Holly, Jon, P-90 and everyone else out there! Thanks for listening!
  9:15pm john:

Hey Evan--glad to hear the rest of the vacation stash! Oh, and funny how that opening horn riff on the Ed Kuepper is virtually the same as on the Saints' Know Your Product
  9:15pm jon:

hey holly alex and p-90. was so up for hearing the kc record that i forgot my manners. efd you are the best
Avatar 9:16pm Holly in NC:

@john - fancy that! ;-)
And also - a mere quarter ?!

Hi jon!
  9:18pm john:

@Holly--great point re the price of the Kuepper elpee! I paid seven bucks for that record in '88. Kind of a cruddy return on investment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm efd:

@john, yes! That's the main reason I went with that particular song, I kind of love that.
@jon I was psyched to find that KC LP! Glad you enjoyed hearing it.
@Holly, there's a huge bin of 25-cent records right up front at Crossroads in Portland, and it's not dreck either!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm efd:

I hope Stevel is listening - this Tommy Bolin is meant to exorcise his earworm.
Avatar 9:23pm Loretta:

hi Evan & fellow listeners!! hanging back, enjoying the show tonight ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm fleep:

Crossroads in Portland, 360 view bit.ly...

Greetings, efd and assorted life forms.
Avatar 9:27pm Holly in NC:

@fleep - Oh, I want to be there. I would spend all day poking & puttering. Then another day at Powells (the latter of which I have done, truly, an entire day)

Hi Loretta!
Avatar 9:34pm Loretta:

Hi Holly!!
  9:43pm jon:

only knew the hookfoot guys from tumbleweed and madman across the water. thanks for putting that one on evan
  9:44pm robin:

I used to have that ed kuepper record in every format ! I have to say I was singing along at home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm coelacanth:

Hi Evan (FD) and everybody.

[...that Hard Place reminded me of Godley/Creme.]
Avatar 9:49pm Holly in NC:

So far I've clicky-starred every song in this set.
  9:50pm oks:

awesome tune!
  9:50pm Thierry:

Hi Evan and all listeners, the 70's streak is really nice. Glad it seems longer than usual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm coelacanth:

fleep -That's awesome; & a little weird,to visit a well-equipped record store and not spend any money!
  9:52pm Carmichael:

Evan. Certainly someone before me has stated that you are the man. Reiteratin' ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Amanda:

Party Boy!!!!!!!!!!! +100000
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Amanda:

This is one of my favorite singles of all times.
  9:55pm Thierry:

I am just curious; can you find such second-hand prices today in NYC record stores?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm efd:

nice, hi Amanda! I vaguely remember it from back in the day, but had forgotten all about it.
Carmichael, thank you kindly.
Avatar 9:58pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi everyone :)
Hi Amanda :)

Hi Holly! :)
Avatar 9:59pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm efd:

Thierry, in my experience generally not... but honestly I don't do that much record shopping locally aside from the WFMU record fair.
  10:00pm john:

Roger C. Reale! Now there's a name one heard often in central CT in the early '80s. And, other than this very show, not since. Please tell me you found a Lou Miami and the Kozmetix record in Portland too...
  10:01pm john:

By the way, that was $46.50 well spent!
  10:02pm will:

Evan, I may not always absolutely love every song you play, but I surely will defend you right to play it!
  10:02pm JakeGould:

Woo hoo! Like this show. Can smell the moldy sleeves.
Avatar 10:04pm Holly in NC:

@john - 3, no, 10 cheers for Lou Miami!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Brutha Wayne Kramer !
  10:07pm john:

And ten more from this end, Holly! Fascist Lover is getting a spin as soon as the show's over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Stevel:

Good freaking evening to y'all. Just sitting down (now playlist enabled.)

I loved the April Wine opener. Tommy Bolin is such a talent lost. Leyden Zar is amazing/a bit of everything.

Carry on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Stevel:

efd: Pretty sure the Bolin earworm is here for a couple of days. This pleases me. Did you consider spinning something else from the album? Inquiring minds...
  10:12pm Thierry:

It works! (https://twitter.com/efd)

Howdeez, efd!
Avatar 10:17pm Holly in NC:

flight reaction = click click click, I am such a sucker for this sound, pop pop pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I do not care for baseball - & Disco - hard to get over my programming from back in the day
- but I *still* love this Program like crazy !
- Absolutely Holly: these bands like The Paperweight other week - doin' the Retro60sPunk - they do it good !! The Above - ++ ...
  10:22pm Thierry:

Feelies feel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm efd:

@will, thanks, I can't ask for more than that!
@john, no Lou Miami spotted I'm sorry to say.
greetings JakeGould, Danne, ngh, coelacanth, fleep, oks, robin, Loretta, and whoever I missed which I'm sure is someone. Thanks all for commenting, and thanks lurkers for listening!

...that Above song hadda be under two min.s !...
  10:24pm JakeGould:

Folks, odd Bay Ridge news for people who care about such things: Alan Merrill is performing at “Three Jolly Pigeons” this Saturday night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm efd:

2:17, RevRab!
  10:25pm JakeGould:

Alan Merril wrote “I Love Rock 'n' Roll” for those who care. en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm efd:

JakeGould, WHAT?!?!

I drove past that place a million times when I lived in Bay Ridge in the 90s, never went in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

... - okay...
  10:27pm JakeGould:

EFD, I walk past that place since it is in my “slice” of the neighborhood. It’s not really a venue but more like a neighborhood bar where they occasionally have gigs. Otherwise it’s just a typical Bay Ridge bar. So I saw the flyer tonight & I was like, “What?”
  10:27pm JakeGould:

Oh, and hey apparently he played there in 2013 doing guess what song. www.youtube.com...
  10:28pm JakeGould:

Also, EFD the fact you lived around here in the 1990s is pretty cool.
  10:29pm Carmichael:

Had to go the store. Hope you didn't play anything good.
  10:32pm JakeGould:

And here is his tour schedule. www.alanmerrill.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- 'Where am I ?'
...'in TheVillage'.

  10:38pm Carmichael:

Alan and Merrill were 2 Osmonds. Just sayin' ...
Avatar 10:41pm Danne D:

enjoying the show Evan :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm efd:

thanks Danne!

@Carmichael, sorry, I kept playing good things while you
were out.

@JakeGould That's kind of what I thought about that place. I lived on 3rd Ave and 100th St for a couple of years, then moved to 72nd between Shore Rd and ... uh... Ridge? Colonial? I forget the next avenue in from Shore Rd now.
Avatar 10:43pm Holly in NC:

Have been wondering if I should check this out (the juan maclean) - question answered! (yes, more fun pop. Although omg the 80s syn/lynn/whatever they're called drums..)
  10:44pm Thierry:

Merrill... one of too many unsung songwriters.
  10:45pm Carmichael:

I blame myself, Evan. Senor Juan is mui nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm coelacanth:

It's true Carmichael.He did.

Danne D -Your friend's daughter? (Bill?)...okay for now,i hope?
Avatar 10:46pm northguineahills:

Time to eat, thanks efd!
  10:47pm JakeGould:

Cool! I live on Ovington between 5th
  10:47pm JakeGould:

Between 5th and 6th. Damn mobile comments!

Are we in safe harbor yet?
Avatar 10:49pm Holly in NC:

Well, was not expecting to heat new Raveonettes, ever. Nice surprise!
Avatar 10:49pm Danne D:

@coelcanth - Erica is okay. Erica also is not related to Bill (which was a mistake by me)
But the important part is yes, she's okay.
Avatar 10:49pm Danne D:

and thanks for asking coelacanth :) and sorry I spelled your name wrong just now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm efd:

@Stevel, yes we are!

@JakeGould is the movie theater still there on 5th Ave?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Stevel:

Yea! [waving small American flag]
  10:58pm JakeGould:

@efd Yup, the Alpine us still here and doing quite well. They found their niche.

I idolize Martin Newell, in any incarnation,
  11:19pm Eddy in Australia:

Hey Evan, Holly and everyone. Tuning in late today. I see that I missed a bargain basement Ed Kuepper track! For Saints fans, there's an interesting doc on I'm Stranded, part of the Great Australian Albums series. Should be around online.

Was that "Your personality is lesser than a corpse?"

  11:28pm Eddy in Australia:

@EFD/JakeGould: Bay Ridge Boys! I lived on 74th between 5th and 6th for a while. I miss Mike's Donuts (opposite the Alpine). Actually, I miss most of the donut stores in NY ...
Avatar 11:33pm Holly in NC:

Badass mongoose fighting lions, which to my mind synched well with Joe Tex. Or maybe I'm just overtired. Or maybe both.


Hi Eddy!

@efd - excellent acetate, so intrigued!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Alex of Chicago:

@Holly I just mean I'd like to see a few NYC bands that never seem to leave the region. Time for a trip back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm fleep:


Meow Mix gave our older cat diabetes. It's like feeding your cat Doritos. I get to shoot her up with insulin twice a day now. Slick ad campaigns aside.
Avatar 11:55pm Holly in NC:

@fleep -did NOT mean to condone meow mix via enjoying their ads - that shit is poison, and evil and I am so sorry about your kitty.


@fleep, hopefully your cat will still have long & happy life now that he/she is on insulin. Lucky so easy to give (albeit expensive)
Avatar 11:56pm Danne D:

I want a McDonald's a big gulp and doritos now :(

Anyway thanks for a great show EFD :)
have a good night everyone!

Bye Holly :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Alex of Chicago:

White Hills is sort of my guilty pleasure. One of the few bands where I don't care how long the song is.

Thanks,efd. Superb program!
ciao everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Stevel:

Wow. Its midnight. What a great show. Shot by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm efd:

I think the longest song I've ever played on my show was by White Hills. Or maybe second-longest, after the album version of "Autobahn."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm coelacanth:

nice closer.

@Holly No knock on anyone enjoying cat videos :)

efd, great show, thanks!

I want cat food. I mean I stopped drinking for a year. So I can sporadically experiment with non-human food, right?
Avatar 12:01am Holly in NC:

Thank you efd!

I LOVE that King Tuff song.

@ Alex - NO shame in enjoying White Hills, ever!
