Listener comments!


Hammersmith is somewhat danceable, in a disco sort of way. Producer?

Let's geek out!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm

hey Stevel! That Hammersmith record was produced by the band's lead guitarist Dan Lowe.

It definitely had a beat, as does this set! I'd say disco night still echoes in your soul.

did you know that Cozi is showing Avengers reruns on weekends?

Oh Duffo. You are trying so hard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm

I did not! Is Cozi like MeTV or Antenna?
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:16pm

It is! It's one of the WNBC digital channels. 4.2 I think. The reruns are at like 1am on sat and Sun nights.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:18pm

Holy crap. Off the Record? I played the vinyl that show for one week in one of my P/T on air jobs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm

yeah, I blew it though! I cued up side four instead of side one!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:20pm

Oh no! Is there an easy point to fade it out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm

ehh, kind of. ;)

These are the times that try a DJ's soul...

Hail, master!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm

That worked. I suppose you could have chopped the end of Zero, but that would be a crime. If that's from 1989, it must have been made when Driven Out was a big rock hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm

Figgs, I've got the WW One Satellite Delivery Schedule for the week of April 24 1989 here if you have any questions.

the fixx were great live
in 1983
also seemed like down to earth lads
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm

yeah "Driven Out" was in segment 2. :)
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm

EFD, that would be great. I need to know when The spots are in Power Cuts.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm

Oh the fear I had the first time I had to time out to Rockline live. The credits are amazing!

best part of the show - the 9:30ish cut to the theme song!

Chris M.:

i love the air horn


That's pretty cheesy. I fully approve.
Avatar 9:43pm

Yeah, Paranoid Style is real hot! Sounds like a sped up Allo Darlin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm

I missed the air horn.
Avatar 10:05pm

Aside- since Evan's Nielsen ratings are so high, let's muck w them by not tuning in next week. Instead, let's see LUSH at Terminal 5 instead. And instead of paying retail, look at StubHub's very low prices. I and friends will be there (we're chumps & paid full retail). I think Evan will understand.
Avatar 10:07pm

Radar Eye - palindromic band name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm

oh I love a good bargain!

An educated consumer is our best customer.

Re-CD mixup: Pobody’s Nerfect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm

very true!
Eddy in Australia:

Sorry to be a lurker but I had to chime in with a quick note on Chook Race: their name rhymes with book, not juke. it's Australian diminutive slang for a chicken. Go figure.

hi efd. mind opening show once again. thnx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm

ah! Thanks Eddy, I'm always happy to get pronunciation corrections. Resume lurking!

@herb.nyc: *Pffffpphht!* Those tickets cost less than the 1991/1992 prices I paid to see them in NYC back in the day!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm

Holy crud, are The Fallen Leaves good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm

yes they are!

@JakeG- ya hafta spend $ to save $.

@herb.nyc: Too bad I had to reschedule some other paid moonlighting gig to that exact night… *sad etherial trombone*
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:07pm

Slow Motion Man sounds a bit Heat of the Moment.

EFD, I played the full "Midnight at the Oasis" as part of a Yacht Rock I did Sunday, and I half expected to hear your voice say "ticket" at some point.
Avatar 11:33pm

hi Evan & all listeners! missed most of the show tonight......well, to the archives!!!!!
it is such a fantastic night here in south FL ~ made it hard to come back home. maybe there is a way to use my cell phone & 'blue link' to get this show in the car.. ?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm

haha, @Figgsrock! I should have snuck in and got on the mic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm

@Loretta, if you have an iPhone or Android phone you can download the free WFMU app and (probably) listen in your car!
Avatar 11:41pm

@ Evan, that definitely sounds doable ( even for me)!LOL I have the app on a Samsung Galaxy & the rest of the info I'll get from the car manual & see if I can connect via blue tooth. Thanks Evan, now I have a plan!!!

Ken From Hyde Park:

My car evidently has rudimentary Bluetooth. I can make calls but cannot stream audio from the phone. Have a good week, efd and all!

Ken From Hyde Park:

I can hook up a USB cable and play mp3 files off the phone, so there's that.
