Hey, thanks for stopping by the Fifth Not-Quite-Annual InterActiv™ Record Fair Listening Party! The party begins at 9pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, but in the meantime take a look at the list of records I bought at Sunday's record fair and leave a comment here telling me what you want to hear!
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:07pm Joe B:

A Village People twinspin™: Hot Cop from Cruisin and of course Food Fight from Renaissance!
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:07pm SteveL:

Well, "Don't Eat Bricks" is the first obvious choice.
"Nervous Breakdown" by Brian Briggs, because I gotta know.
"Klean Livin Kids"
"Sounds of Sound" (obvious #2)
More Harry Harrison? Perfect.
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:08pm Paulie B:

That "Laughing at the Ground" 7" is amazing. The 21-645 is probably the best tune on it. Also, if you could play whatever that power pop 45 you bought from Chunk Warner was, that would be awesome.
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:09pm Paulie B:

And that's CHUCK Warner. Not Chunk. Sorry, Chuck.
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:14pm Joe D.:

George Baker Selection!!!

Also Altered Images. And who were the Stukas???
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:17pm jeff k:

"Up to You" by the Stoat.
  Tue. 1/15/13 11:23pm Gregory:

Please play Monster Rap.
  Wed. 1/16/13 6:36am jtkantor:

I've never heard the Cortez/Youngblood collaboration; I'm intrigued!
  Wed. 1/16/13 12:46pm Mike Sin:

Anything off of your favorite find -- the Gotham "Void Where Inhibited" LP -- but I want Sherri to front-announce it on air because she dug and unearthed it!
  Wed. 1/16/13 12:53pm TCJimmy:

The Dave Baby Cortez record is a burner! I recommend Side A Track 1 The Lemon Drop.
  Wed. 1/16/13 1:10pm steve:

was just this morning listening to the Cristina s/t picked up at a previous FMU record fair! how about "La Poupee qui Fait Non"?
  Wed. 1/16/13 1:12pm Cal Zone!:

Those Harry Harrison 'In' Sound records are always BOSS! Also anything 'Spizz' gets my endorsement!
  Wed. 1/16/13 1:22pm Ajax:

I'd like to hear Dexy's Midnight Runners : There There My Dear, thanks. Also are you a millionaire? You bought so many records! KC's "Please Don't Go" from Do You Wanna Go Party is my jam.
  Wed. 1/16/13 2:50pm Danne D:

Hey EFD! Hey Funk Fans!

Um....so there's like no music right now...confused

j/k :)

Btw, folks when Evan was at the record fair there was a point where we was standing next to a rack of records with dividers (part of a seller's table) and everyone who passed by just assumed they were all his purchases.

#buyembytherack
  Wed. 1/16/13 2:51pm Danne D:

Did the Flirts do "Jukebox"? surely I hope we hear that tonight if that's the case

#dowannahearthatsongsomemore
  Wed. 1/16/13 3:07pm herb.nyc:

uh, why not play ALL of the purchases in random order? (someone mentioned HARRY HARRISON - as i love his voice, suuuuuuuuuure)

Yay! Thanks, Evan!!

You're welcome Lisa! Holly, I'm afraid the listening party is going to wrap up at around 10! You'll have to check the archive I guess. :(
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:12pm Holly in NC:

Archives no chore, I live in the archives, so to speak
Avatar Wed. 1/16/13 9:12pm efd:

and hi/thanks everyone for listening and requesting!
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:13pm john:

Great haul! Hmm, well, it's kind of mandatory for me to call out Be-Bop Deluxe, though Modern Music is a record I rarely listen to. Maybe "Kiss of Light?"
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:13pm Joe B:

" accepted under duress as a "gift" from a dealer" have to hear this story at some point! maybe not suitable for the airwaves?
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:15pm SteveL:

AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm late, and Gotham led the show.
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:17pm SteveL:

goodbye cruel world.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/13 9:17pm efd:

It's the archives for you too, SteveL! You also missed one of your requests!

Joe B, definitely suitable for the airwaves, but probably not as interesting as what anyone is imagining.
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:18pm SteveL:

I have no purpose. No meaning. Gotham is lost to me. Until later, at least.
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:21pm john:

I'm having a WLIR flashback here. In all the best ways.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/13 9:21pm A Dealer:

efd will never find the hidden chip in his "gift" that will let me get a fix on the location of his supersecret Funk Generator.

And once I know, I WILL RULE THE WORLD BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:24pm SteveL:

The Puppets are tremendous dance music.

"We learn to live with a little pain my dear."

Deep or kinky? Depends on your mood.
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:27pm SteveL:

Ahhhhhhhh. "Nervous Breakdown" Very interesting.
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:28pm Ignore Function:

Is that what Yacht rock sounds like? Better than I expected.
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:30pm SteveL:

Brian Briggs seems to have honed in on a pretty unusual hybrid style. Rocka-devo-dance-hall?
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:31pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Brian Briggs. Its been what 25 yrs since i heard dat?
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:33pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Herws a vote for Magazine's "Sweetheart Contract.". Great great song!!
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:35pm Joe B:

especially Manti Te'o's imagination!
  Wed. 1/16/13 9:35pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Dario, Can You Get me into Studio 54 is the greatest.

Oh man, Gotham's "Void Where Inhibited"! EFD, don't you remember? Or maybe you weren't down here yet at the time. There was a big-ass billboard for that album shining out on Sheridan Square.

Parq, I do not remember that! I was here in 1979. too. Maybe I blocked it out.

Rough Trade was probably the first proper record store I walked into when I was 16 or so. My home town only had a TX chain store called Hastings, but I visited my dad in San Francisco and stumbled into the old Rough Trade location on 16th which was about as big as a walkin closet.

But I overlooked spizzenergi 2. Must find that.
  Wed. 1/16/13 10:29pm Kat in Chicago:

The bad rap was Monster Rap. Paine-ful.

@efd: Ding-ding-ding-ding-ding! You can make some chicken salad with the chicken dinner you just won.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow night. But right now I'm enjoying your mini-record fair acquisitions.

Awesome, have a great time! I'm sure it will be great.

Kat, I can't believe you can't go! That stinks! (Not that you need me to tell you that.)

Holly, I had indeed noticed your jam - such a great song!

steve, believe me I'm as shocked as anyone. Barkevious, I would say that they each have a very distinct (and similar) look, which may not be to everyone's taste.
  Wed. 1/16/13 10:46pm SteveL:

Now I have to see the Flirts cover.
  Wed. 1/16/13 10:47pm Danne D:

These guys were fantastic Sunday :)

Thanks for playing the Flirts EFD :)
  Wed. 1/16/13 10:47pm BadGuyZero [Dallas, TX]:

@Kat: Are you unable to attend because it sold out? Or do you have a conflicting commitment? I may have an extra ticket if it's the former.

Remember to tip.

john, I had not noticed I was slipping on "Le Poisson Rouge!" I will do my best to get back to my previous vim and vigor when mentioning that venue.

So this is what CSNY were really going for!

To review: The Flirts were the Milli Vanilli of the early 80s, but without the actual hit, and therefore without the actual bigtime scandal.

and if the record flops, at least I got some nice coochie.

Ohman I thought this Swans song was Slim Cessna's Auto Club.

I so enjoy this Ceramic Hello reissue, yay!

A couple of months back Rob Weisberg was doing a remote from Le Poisson Rouge. When Terre started Cherry Blossom Clinic some of the streams were streaming the open mic at LPR. We could hear a band warming up. A listener commented that he heard them say...I don't remember how he spelled it; I'll try to find it. I got a kick out of it though.
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:37pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Here you go:

"Was that Rob Weisberg on the new "Remote Rehearsal Stream." Call him at the Pwasawn Roozh."

OMG, BGZ: *I* wrote that comment. I would never ever have remembered that LMAO

Yo La Tengo, yeah these guys rule.
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:45pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

@G: My head is filled with trivial moments like that from the comments board.

I remember reading that comment and thinking "what kind of cockamamie name is that for a place" then looked at Rob's text promoting the remote and realized I probably would have spelled it the same way.

yay boomgates :)
Avatar Wed. 1/16/13 11:46pm G:

efd was on that board (I just went and looked) -- so i was tying his performance of "P.R." in for fun
Avatar Wed. 1/16/13 11:48pm efd:

Yeah, I remember that! There was a lot of consternation trying to get that other signal off the air.
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:49pm Loretta:

Hey there Evan.... really enjoying the show tonight! nice finds at the record fair ~ hope to hear more in the future.
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:50pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

That was a very Keystone Cops moment...everyone trying to figure out how to fix it. Ken was asking everyone to call him immediately.

Dear listeners: The WFMU.org website is going to be taken down for some routine maintenance at midnight. Streams should be fine. Don't panic, stand up and stretch your legs for a bit. I'll be here, mostly in control. heh.

Hey, thanks Loretta!

I guess I need to actually listen to the latest Emeralds...liking this
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:56pm Holly in NC:

Mary, I'll be listening!
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:57pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show EFD :)
Take care everyone :)

Nope, no robots involved in this project. Humans battling software, whee!

Thanks very much for listening, requesting, and commenting everyone! See you next week for the special Wired Up! show!

Modern life, in other words. I see!
  Wed. 1/16/13 11:58pm Jeff:

A heads-up to those of you who expect to keep listening on into the night:

We're having to do some maintenance on the wfmu.org server, which will start just after midnight US/Eastern.

So... poor Mary W gets stuck with no live playlist for the beginning of the show. The streams and FM signal should keep going just as usual, and we hope to be back in 15 minutes or less (less if nothing goes badly haywire).

Oh, wait. Mary just said all this.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 12:00am G:

haywire. could be fun!
