Ooh, here's a gem!

Avatar 9:08pm Holly in NC:

Hi Loretta! I always want to sing the Nervous Eaters song to you, but I suspect that's been done many a time.

Hi Santos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Stevel:

I really like the way this is shaping up tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Irwin:

They divided the LJJ 45 right in the middle of Ficca's amazing drum break.
Avatar 9:14pm Loretta:

hi Holly ~ actually no one has ever sang that Nervous Eaters song to me! LOL!! it's a kool song for sure..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm efd:

hi Santos, steve, Stevel and Irwin!

Irwin (or anyone), have you ever heard any backstory about the way LJJ is split?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm efd:

Loretta, you've been hanging out with the wrong crowd! :)
  Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Lonely Planet Boy:

I'm currently reading (courtesy of my public library) The Youngs: the Brothers Who Built AC/DC. There is a bit about the Easybeats, older brother George, and Good Times.
  9:19pm JakeGould:

Irwin: Give the Drummer 1/2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Stevel:

LPB: Good read? I've been hitting the rock bio shelf pretty heavily in the past year. Jerry Lee Lewis, Richard Hell, Patty Smith.
  Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Stevel, it's written by an Australian writer with whom I was unfamiliar. There is a lot of talk about Australian rock, so I'm going to Spotify and Rhapsody a lot.
  Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Just Kids is a great book! I've read that twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Stevel:

I need to buy a copy of Just Kids. (I do love the library.)

I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp (R Hell) was pretty good too. Now reading the Rick Bragg JLL book. I love it. I could stand to own all of these.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Santos L Halper:

Hey Holly!
@LPB, Just Kids is def great. Seen that Mapplethorpe movie (Black White + Gray)? It's in my queue, but haven't gotten to it yet.
  9:36pm jon:

hi everybody. great openning set efd.
  Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Since I'm a librarian, I'm glad you love your library :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm efd:

thanks jon! Hi to you, LPB and JakeGould! Good to see you all.
Avatar 9:40pm Holly in NC:

Oh yay for Killing Joke!
Avatar 9:41pm Huge:

This is the best show I've ever heard ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm efd:

I like the way you think, Huge!
  9:48pm battleaxe:

These Beats = Genius!
  9:48pm john:

If you're the barer of bad nudes you have no one to blame but yourself.
Avatar 9:49pm Holly in NC:

Lurking @TiM with another winner!
  9:50pm Carmichael:

Evan, man I finally made it! Thanks for not playing anything good!!
  9:51pm battleaxe:

john...Lettuce rest, I'm feeling beet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

good one, Carmichael!

Not so good ones, john and battleaxe. ;)
  9:57pm john:

Hey, I don't make the news, I just report it.
  10:00pm Carmichael:

Kidding, EFD. I am an Easybeats/Vanda
  10:02pm Carmichael:

... Fanatic. Lights in the Night was in my ears tonight.
  10:04pm courtneynoir:

I like "Kuncle Sandwich" better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm coelacanth:

howdy Evan and Funk Aficionados.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Ruh-ro.....egregious technical error!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

I liked it the other way.
  10:06pm Ignore Function:

Rev.Norb is such a kidder.
  10:06pm courtneynoir:

Yeah. Sounded sweet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm coelacanth:

sounds good either way. maybe that's why it wasn't indicated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Glenn L:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

That would be a neat goal for some songs from any band or artist - a track that is equally good and without any weirdness at either speed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm efd:

that's a good challenge, Ken!
Avatar 10:12pm Loretta:

Evan, wow, what an outrageous show tonight! thanks...i'll be listening in 'lurking mode' for the remainder of your show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

...and no cheating by recording it at 39 RPM (half-way between 33 & 45 RPM).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Barkevious Shabazz:

It's long coda night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm fleep:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm coelacanth:

aww,i haven't even started this project and i'm busted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm efd:

I keep checking to make sure it's not a run-out groove!

(It's not)

(so far)
  Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Lonely Planet Boy:

I think it's just that the record was inflated at less than 12.5 - 13.5 psi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Surely Spray Paint proved that 2'31" is the optimum song length.
  10:23pm Glenn:

Dom Mariani power pop guitar shred master.
  Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Lonely Planet Boy:

1X 2X is amazing; never heard it before. A WFMU find!
Avatar 10:25pm Holly in NC:

Liked Aerosols!

Really, really tired so drifting in & out. Pathetic - in college & grad school I could stay up pretty much all weekend. 3 hours sleep yesterday & I'm zonked.
  10:29pm Ignore Function:

Green Bay
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm efd:

ahh, thank you Ignore Function!

I can relate, Holly - get some sleep if you can!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Stevel:

Holly: I hear ya'. Working a double show at the theater tomorrow night, also working in the morning. Taking a 1/2 day trade to go home and sleep for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Just not into the long haul these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Aw, I missed Television...oh well, I like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Gaylord Fields:

If it's any consolation, @Holly in NC, I'm in my 12th hour at work right now. I don't have too much longer to go, and besides, I'm energized by efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Holly - At least you're drowsy at a reasonable hour. I hate when I get out of sync and super-drowsy time happens at 10AM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

Is this "Montage?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@michael ho ho
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm efd:

I don't get it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Evening...Like ! ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Uncle Michael:

You haven't seen Team America? Me either! But I've seen Montage on Youtube and that Jack Charles track reminded me of that sort of '80s thing. I'm Holding Out For A Hero...Eye Of The Tiger...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Stevel:

How many people are in Mucca Pazza, and are they performing in Monty Hall?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Barkevious Shabazz:

South Park Montage song (lyrics): youtu.be...
  10:54pm JakeGould:

I’m moderately drowsy. Meh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Stevel:

Les Sans Coulottes! Eeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Uncle Michael:

I didn't know there was a South Park version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Stevel:

Very much looking forward to Feb. 11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Friday Night is tops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Stevel:

Nots are definitely worth seeing.
  Swag For Life Member 11:09pm 12539:

(Yay! I was hoping you'd say it Day Es Ka!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Uncle Michael:

  11:13pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Ian was never in the Left Banke--formed Stories with Brown after the Left Banke was over
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Uncle Michael:

Or did Evan already mention Stories?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Uncle Michael:

My brain buffer only went back half a sentence before I got name checked.
  11:23pm Mike Sin:

Interesting show tonight, Evan! Checking in from the dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Stevel:

Mike Sin, in the dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm efd:

Happy to have you MIke, regardless of the illumination.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Uncle Michael:

Mike's in the dark?
Avatar 11:36pm Kevlicki:

you're liking the new SLF album. I had that song you played last week in my head for a couple days
Avatar 11:36pm Mugsy:

Always listening, always a great job.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Stevel:

Stiff Little Fingers. So good after so many years.
Avatar 11:37pm Kevlicki:

These songs would've gained tons of popularity when I was a teenager in High School...90's pop punk
Avatar 11:38pm Kevlicki:

SLF is still the best Irish rock band ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- woh - new, straight-ahead Wh♂-ish Rawk from SLF - I had no idea...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Stevel:

Never would have predicted AC/DC as having the longevity that they possess. Still damn good.
Avatar 11:51pm Kevlicki:

ah,the promises promises track, this is another earworm of the last couple weeks, thanks to FMU
  Swag For Life Member 11:56pm 12539:

Thanks, Mr Funk!
Avatar 11:59pm Kevlicki:
