It's a Tim Moore song, but it's totally a Paul Collins title.

Damn! That Twisters cut was epic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 9:25pm efd:

hiya Ben! Yeah, I figured a band that put out a song called "Media Man" in the early '80s would have Something To Say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 9:29pm Aitch:

Hadn't heard any of them, interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 9:35pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey EFD! How was that Dodger game?
Avatar Wed. 4/3/19 9:35pm Dave Mandl:

That Tim Moore song (his version) is one of the greatest power-pop records evah. Thanks for playing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 9:40pm efd:

Damn, I love the Cars, still!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:08pm Bootsie:

Why don't I listen to them more?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:10pm efd:

I ask myself the same question! Their songs still sound so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:12pm Phillippe Bastille:

Thanks for a great interview and show, EFD. Good night all.

Thanks for listening Phillippe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:24pm nickybones:

I somehow noticed how much St. Anne's Church really sounds like Satan's Church if you're not listening closely.
  Wed. 4/3/19 11:32pm Mankato Fish:

Love it!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:33pm drowsy:

This show has been great. Thanks for digging into the 'never enough' vers. and picking the Cars song with the least-worst lyrics they offer to bring that vintage 'BCN evening feel back!
  Wed. 4/3/19 11:34pm Mankato Fish:

Funny, I got married at satan’s church and hadn’t gotten the joke... now I get what’s going on..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:34pm efd:

ha, thanks drowsy, glad you enjoyed it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:39pm ifeelfatnsassy:

I feel like I've been transported to the music of mind control and Micah is going to come on the air to explain the cults involved in this music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:39pm ifeelfatnsassy:

Which is to say: I like this, but I feel like maybe I shouldn't?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/3/19 11:42pm efd:

I don't think any harm will befall you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/3/19 11:42pm Kat in Chicago:

Perhaps it was all that talk of Satan's Church? If Ze Records is a cult, sign me up.
