Only the best cities get hit with extreme cold or fires.

Memo to EFD: Don't spend too much time on the mic breaks this year. You did last year and had to cut songs short.

I'm not sure what you're talking about, R2, I've got PUH-LENTY of time! ;)

The Velvet Underground continues to be a big influence on modern music.
  9:27pm DJ E:

what was the Handyman a reference to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm efd:

  9:30pm DJ E:

she was referencing 60's pop songs right?
Helter Skelter
Gimme Shelter
Hold Your Hand
I thought Handyman was from something.

THere are a lot of dudes out there
  9:31pm JakeGould:

Handyman… Candyman… Who can make the world smile… By fixing the front door?
  9:32pm john:

@DJ E: Stealth James Taylor reference? He's everywhere.
  9:34pm DJ E:

@john: Possible. James Taylor is the answer to most of life's questions.

I love that Pacifics song, glad it came in on the list. I'm actually hyperventilating just a little about what will be #1. And happy new year, Evan and other funksters.

Hello all. Dropping in briefly before the Snowpocalypse, had a gig end today. May be on call remotely for a few hours but in the meantime enjoying a hot toddy and my foofy comfy pants...

Dog walk is done. We had some catching up to do since it's above single digits.

You know it's fscking cold when you go out to work and it's above 10 degrees and you are actually all like "Oh, it's WARMER, don't need the earmuffs.."

The Bedazzler? Who would've guessed?

Encore un fois, Evan: "Gerard Depardiu". Or: "Gerard Cosloy".

Didn’t know you could rock this song. Very cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Alex of Chicago:

i love the bee-gees. but this is their song?
  Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Julie M:

Ha. I just heard the original of this on the radio yesterday. Great cover, and great entry to your best of 2017. If I don't poke in anymore tonight, thanks for a wonderful show, Evan.
  Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Julie M:

Yes, Alex, yes it is.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm joe:

I just read the track list for this Bee Gees comp. Wow what an eclectic range of artists.
  10:34pm herb.nyc:

I have a vague memory of watching Le Bee Gees on j.carson Tonight show. Did they do "I started a joke"? 1969 ish?
  10:34pm Marie:

@ C: uh huh. Really digging tis BVs song
  10:35pm Marie:

Thanks EFD!
  10:35pm Carmichael:

Dudes, the Bee Gees were the shit. I’m also 60 years old ...
  Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Julie M:

You know what, the Bee Gees were the shit in the '60s and they were still the shit in the disco era whether you like disco or not. You cannot deny the Bee Gees. And now I am done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm joe:

@herb.nyc yes that is a Bee Gees track
Avatar 10:39pm Number Six:

@Jake: Death Snow! You should love this headline:
  10:40pm Carmichael:

Julie knows her shit.
  10:41pm Ochre Ogre:

Great show Billy! That Sam Pocker single image (EP cover)is a Mark Kostabi, used to work for him in NYC, but I didn't paint that one.
  10:43pm john:

Re Bee Gees: There's also the criminally ignored Sensitive Singer-Songwriter Years in between the Sad Beatles of the 60s and the Disco Gods from 75-79. Lots of great material worth seeking out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm efd:

@Ochre Ogre thanks, but... Billy?
  10:44pm JakeGould:

@Number Six: “Colder than Mars” Well, I say…
  10:47pm Marie:

Evan, do you have a license to rock like this?
  10:47pm Stevel:

My daughter in Baltimore is expecting an inch of snow. Somehow, I thought they might be looking at something more dramatic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Mister Dobalina:

I think Doom sampled that, 'Wooooo' sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm efd:

still just a learner's permit, Marie!
Stevel, I think the worst of it will be from this area north and east. Boston is supposed to get socked, as is eastern LI
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm loveless:

Helen Shapiro will be mad you spelled her name incorrectly. I’ve loved her ever since I saw “It’s Trad, Dad” on TMC.

If it means anything, there have been 37 (!!!) traffic accidents reports in Central Texas due to—wait for it—JUST ICE!!!! www.fox7austin.com...

A Paul Bruno fill-in is never a bad thing. Just a little more common than an Unblinking Ear podcast episode. [poke nudge]

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Kat in Chicago:

I liked the Sneaks one too. Snuck up on me, you might say.
  11:12pm Stevel:

It's been as cold as your favorite selection of witch body parts here in the middle of it all. I've adjusted to the heavily layered look.
  11:20pm JakeGould:

I really liked pumpernickel bagels as a teen… Then some old lady in line asked, “You like pumpernickel bagels? They make me constipated.”

I don’t enjoy them the same way anymore. This began in the 1980s.

I like Chastity Belt too.
