Listener comments!

  Wed. 8/15/18 9:08pm Listener Robert:

Bill Kelly was IIRC the first WFMU DJ with a daytime program I listened to regularly. Some time in the early 1980s after I'd gotten hooked via Frank O'Toole, Pat Duncan, & Jim Price at night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 9:08pm Ciggy:

Bill Kelly and Rock & Roll are like fire and gasoline. EFD, light the match!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 9:11pm Julie M:

I believe the match has been lit.
  Wed. 8/15/18 9:16pm Motobro:

Happy Anniversary Bill. 40 years of Real Rock and Roll. Listening from Boulder tonight.
Thank you King Kelly!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 9:17pm Ciggy:

40th Anniversary of Bill Kelly. Also, 47th Anniversary of President Nixon's "enemies list."

Funksituents! Been looking forward to this show all week. It's good to be here!

hey everyone! Thanks for the Ming Tea info. I'm yacking with Bill here in the studio so may not be posting as much as usual but I'm keeping an eye on youse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 9:32pm Mike Sin:

Happy 40th year to Bill Kelly! I'm happy to say that I've been listening for 35 of those 40 years. "Teenage Wasteland" from 12pm to 4pm on Sundays was surely my "gateway" show to all things WFMU.

Congrats, Bill for making 40 years! You were my gateway to wfmu also some 38 (!) years ago. Thanks for turning me on to all "the mindless teenage brain rot."

Love this Shanda track.

I'd love to know where Bill stands on immigration and Trump's proposed wall.
  Wed. 8/15/18 9:47pm herb.nyc:

Such great music tonight (as usual, ho hum). Happy 40, bill! I'm proud to've adopted bill (*and* evan) in the past. I feel I did well, as a parent. (I'm tearing up)
  Wed. 8/15/18 9:49pm DJ E:

Anyone who bashes the Red Sox has my undying loyalty.
  Wed. 8/15/18 9:53pm john kwi:

Thanks Bill "killer" Kelly. I still remember the the day I was driving down the GSP and Bill informed everyone to stick their heads out the window and proclaim : I hate the Grateful dead" 40 years of good stuff and then some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/15/18 9:59pm Tommy in Neversink:

Thank you Bill Kelly for all the years of service to FMU ...I've listened to you for 20 years

Congratulations on 40, Bill Kelly!! Great job EFD!

Very nice. I hope there will be an efd anniversary show like this at the appropriate point in time.

And here is to EFD who I recall from the New afternoon show back in the day.

Congrats from Berkeley, CA. Still love the Grateful Dead but we still love you.
  Wed. 8/15/18 10:23pm Cary in St. Louis:

Congratulations Bill! Your music, attitude and humor make everything better. Many more happy years of spiining the rrrrrrreal rock n roll to you
  Wed. 8/15/18 10:24pm Cliff back in the U.S.S.A.:

Congrats Bill, you started on WFMU the same year I was born!

Show sounds great. Made for a long night at work a little easier.

Such a terrific show. Bill and Evan = two of the greats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/15/18 10:31pm Parq:

Was in school when I first started listening to FMU, and I have so many memories of listening to Bill while studying on Sunday afternoons.
  Wed. 8/15/18 10:39pm Listener Robert:

Which invites the question, are WFMU DJs juicing?

Billy Kelly: the Black Holiest of the Rock n' Roll-iest!

My first WFMU appearance was a guest on Bill's show to promote a benefit for my fanzine at The Court Tavern.

Congratulations Bill!

Hiya slocker :D
  Wed. 8/15/18 11:11pm medson:

The Hound was my gateway to WFMU. Soon after I was loving Bill’s show as well. Many many thanks for the countless hours of rock and roll.
  Wed. 8/15/18 11:11pm johnk77:

CKLW was the real deal.
Great work tonight selecters:>
  Wed. 8/15/18 11:13pm Danne D:

Bill Kelly is one of the gateways to gateways at this point as surely he was the gateway for more than a few people who would go to be FMU djs :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 11:13pm mb:

Congrats indeed. Any time someone mentions Little Stevies show I say "Oh there is a DJ on WFMU who does that kind of show at a better time on Sundays." Which is usually followed by 'what is WFMU?'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 11:17pm Bootsie:

Enjoying the show while I pack for the Surf Fest this weekend... congrats, Bill!

Very much enjoying this on a sunny winter afternoon in Sydney
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 8/15/18 11:37pm Hoboken Jack:

Driving back to Hoboken some years ago, I heard a cool song in which a guy dropped a bowling ball through a pinball machine, but I missed the back announcing. They didn't have these newfangled accu-playlists in those days, so I emailed the DJ, Bill Kelly. He wrote back, telling me it was a young band called the White Stripes. Thanks Bill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 11:42pm efd:

thanks everyone for your comments and well wishes for Bill! Greatly appreciated!
