sounds like a cross between crack the sky and styx. IMHO

Everything sounding fine on this end!!!

There is something very 1982 about this “Stealer” track.

I had a feeling this was in the crate tonight...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 9:38pm drowsy:

thanks for soldering on with the cold, efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 9:39pm drowsy:

oops you aren't making motherboards, but thanks all the same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 9:40pm Dave in SoDak:

Somehow lately I remembered this band - i think they were called "Angel" and they were supposed to be like the antithesis of KISS. I don't think they succeeded. ;-) But for some painful reason - maybe from the memories of church camp from around age 12 - I still hear "Hold me, squeeze me - Never let me go..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 9:40pm efd:

haha, thank you drowsy!
@Kat (it's always in the crate, tbh)

Hi Dave! Yeah, they were Kiss' labelmates on Casablanca... I've played them on my show more than once! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 9:47pm Dave in SoDak:

wow. just looked at their album cover - i so don't remember that. ;-)

Wistful for all of the fake I.D. “novelty” shops around NYC back in the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 9:53pm Tome:

except for like ie,, Kiss, Donna Summer ,, um,, Parliament ,,, Lips inc.... from being in a pretty popular record store back then ,,, most new Casablanca releases were soon forgotten and left in the bottom of the pile after like a month ,, maybe less !<>!

Guessing you were busy setting up the rest of the cue instead of dancing. Thanks for the sacrifice EFD!

ha, yes, the dance-free life of a radio DJ :)

M. Geddes Gengras is really great and I play him on my show but I always stumble over his name too.

Continuing with more details...until, Hold on...
  Wed. 5/22/19 10:46pm Peanut Gallery:

I will hold for a DJ...but everybody else better spit it out.

I like this new Dream Syndicate.

Can relate to any lyric about needing a pat of butter. Come to Butthead, du beurrrrre....

Did I miss your report on the Dream Syndicate show? Worth hitting the archives for.

'night, medson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:15pm efd:

see ya medson!
@SteveL I just gave a very brief report, but the FCC-unsafe version is that they were fucking amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 11:17pm Kat in Chicago:

Same Starbuck as "Moonlight Feels Right"? I never heard anything else they did.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:18pm Steve:

EFD, this tune has gotten me in the mood for The Hollywood Stars
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:18pm efd:

Another example of the service we provide here at The Evan "Funk" Davies Show. (yes, same Starbuck)
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:18pm steveL:

That is exactly what I was led to believe. With greatest respect, I was pleased the band survived. Most outfits with that vibe (Live/Medicine Show) had a high casualty count. Jim Morrison-esque in those days, although I never saw them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:19pm efd:

@Steve ha, that new album doesn't come out until August!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 11:19pm Kat in Chicago:

I haven't seen Dream Syndicate for a very long time but I am glad they still kick ass.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:20pm Steve:

Really ?! I didn't know that ?! Very cool !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:21pm efd:

it's not new new but a collection of demos and unreleased stuff... was just announced, on the Burger label
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 11:22pm Roberto:

Yeah this Le Tigre is prescient AF.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:23pm Steve:

I gotta get that album then new or old. Burger Records it is ! Thanks for letting me know.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:23pm steveL:

Roberto: Agreed.

Enjoying show EFD. Always good to hear Sparks
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:25pm Daybreak, and the transition:

Somewhere Clay Pigeon just popped up like a prairie dog: SPARKS!
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:29pm Steve:

'Hippopotamus' was one of the best album covers in a long time. Really hearkened back to those classic Sparks album covers of the 70's and early 80's
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:29pm Choggie:

Alllll the wayyyyyyy, we're OoOOOOOoOO KAY!
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:31pm Choggie:

All the way baby, all the way.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:31pm steveL:

Sparks remains excellent in all ways.

efd: Were you present for their Monty Hall performance? Was it for your show? It’s late.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:32pm Choggie:

"Hungarian woman, stay away from meee-heeee!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 11:33pm Kat in Chicago:

steveL, I think it was broadcast on Brian Turner's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:40pm efd:

Kat is correct. I didn't see the MH recording, but I did see them live around the same time and they were also amazing.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:41pm Steve:

EFD, will you be inviting The Hollywood Stars to appear on your show when that album is released ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:42pm efd:

if I see that they're playing out this way I'll definitely try to make that happen!

Nice show tonight, efd. I hope your cold goes away quickly!

must be hitting all the DJs - heard carol miller also on the air with a cold on Q104 before I got in FMU range tonight
