I came home to a package inside my door on Monday and thought 'swag!'...but it was vitamins.

Evan, is this the same group 'suicide' that I may have run unto back in the early 70's? my memory is not what it used to be......LOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 10:24pm efd:

yep Loretta, that's them!

oh cool!! thanks Evan. gotta pick up that vinyl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 10:29pm Bootsie:

@Loretta did you see them live back then?

holy shit this killing joke is terrible
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 10:35pm Loretta:

@Bootsie, yes I do remember that we (TL) played with them, but I'm not sure where..... maybe the Mercer ST. art Ctr. very cool!!!! great memories...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 10:38pm Bootsie:

@loretta that IS very cool! So happy I got to see them once in the '90s. "TL"?
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 10:46pm Loretta:

@Bootsie back in the day I was in a local NYC glitter rock band named ~ Teenage Lust & the Lustettes. I was a Lustette. Evan plays a few of our songs every once in a while..
we're probably due to hear some Lust soon !!!
where did you see them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 10:48pm efd:

@blob (and anyone else interested in that Crazy Sunday ep I played earlier): You can email the label at drchompski at chompskimusic.com, and tell them you heard it on my show. They'll hook you up. It'll also be on iTunes soon.
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 10:53pm Howard F:

Hey everyone! Love the Wipers, I don't know why they're not more popular like Black Flag or the Misfits?! Maybe they didn't have a cool enough logo?!

I love the efd show

Howard, that's a good question to which I don't have an answer.

Hello efd and everyone, pleasure to be here as I work the night away!

hi mariano, glad I can keep you company for part of your work-night! Thanks for listening!
  Wed. 8/31/16 11:19pm Stevel:

Nice lead up to Bowie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:20pm efd:

lead out will be questionable
  Wed. 8/31/16 11:21pm Stevel:

I'll be the judge of that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:22pm steve:

haha what is going on
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:22pm mariano:

Hey, the efd show, something green (ahem), coffee, and some late-night graphic design work, sometimes I love my job! @Loretta: that is soooo cool, I'll have to look up LT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:23pm Bootsie:

Hey @Loretta I'm back. Had to wash my dye out. ;-) just checked out a TL clip on YouTube. Good stuff! I can't remember the year, but early '90s or possibly even late '80s. Ric Ocasek was on guitar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:26pm efd:

these voice actors are so bad on this off-brand Kojak record
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:27pm mariano:

I love it! I had a Star Trek record when I was a kid, not even sure if it was the real cast. Something about a wizard appearing on the Enterprise, whose name was Klee, of all things. I think my grandparents got it for me.
  Wed. 8/31/16 11:27pm Stevel:

And yet, I approve of this choice.

Pull the package!

Sad police sirens.
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:31pm mariano:

Ever see that thing on YouTube, a promo video Telly Savalas did in the mid-70s for Birmingham (UK)? I guess it's something the city government would show to try to attract business. It's hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/31/16 11:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember some Kojak episode where someone mentioned a phone number with the 683 prefix instead of the generic 555. My hometown is 683. Also, 683 stood for MUrdoch-3, according to one of my grade school teachers.
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:35pm Chris M.:

fuck this song is great
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:38pm mariano:

@Ken: What hometown is that? I was born in '69, and when I was in like second and third grade, Kojak was big on TV. There were all these fairly real toy pistols back then branded for Kojak, Columbo, and some other TV cops, and my friends and I all had one, used to play cops and robbers at recess. Can you imagine that today? Whole school would be on lockdown and attempts to press adult charges. Anyway, here's that Telly Savalas link for some post-efd viewing, it's really funny: www.youtube.com...

@Ken -- oh cool, I lived in Omaha for five years way back when. Never made it to ND though, just SD. Are you a fan of Fargo (the series)?
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:48pm JakeGould:

@mariano: Ah, the 1970s! When I had a black toy machine gun that looked just like a real gun. And one of my fondest childhood memories was climbing the wobbly monkey bars in a local playground with that guy and we would all play this game which was basically, “Let’s rock these rickety monkey bars until someone falls off and lands face first on the hard rubber in the playground.” Ah, youth! Such innocence!
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:49pm JakeGould:

Afterword: I would pretend to shoot at other kids while rocking it to see if I could scare them into falling down. Those were the wonder years!
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:49pm JakeGould:

On that note, great show Evan! Goodnight to all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:50pm Chop Scott:

I deeply thank you--as ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/31/16 11:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@mariano - Haven't paid attention to it. When the TV's on here, it's tuned to some sporting event or else Comedy Central, for the most part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:52pm efd:

my pleasure Chop Scott, Jake, and all!

Thinking I know how this could end tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/31/16 11:53pm efd:

you know me too well, Stevel
Avatar Wed. 8/31/16 11:56pm mariano:

@JakeGould: have a good night, if I haven't missed you! @Ken -- I hear you, we all have our likes. If you ever do feel like a good series, though, it's a good one, much of it shot in ND.

Thanks for the great show as always efd!
  Wed. 8/31/16 11:57pm Stevel:

Perhaps. Always a pleasure! Thank you for wonderful radio.
