I could if I would. Only Mark Farner and Don Brewer can answer that question. Don't ask Dennis Bellinger, they don't tell him anything.

What Stores did you go to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/4/17 9:14pm efd:

A couple of Reckless locations, Logan Hardware, Laurie's Planet Of Sound, and Val's Halla in Chicago; Rush-mor, Acme, and Off The Beaten Path in Milwaukee.

Hi Evan and all, am enjoying the songs while playing w my cat, and reading "the speed of sound", Thomas Dolby's memoirs. Fun stuff. Kevin Rowland just dissed him at a New Music Seminar panel. - spk'ng of record stores, a new hip shiney snack place is open, on site of Other Music.

Yes do it.

That Real Numbers song was excellent! --@Threemoons, TDolby sounds like such a sweetie, at least according to him. He's at MJackson's mansion, circa Thriller, and the 2 have great conversation. Then he meets a buncha local young children at his house. It was 8,9pm. Hmm...
  Wed. 10/4/17 9:52pm medson:

Hola efd. Great show so far.
Tuning in this week via FMU App in beautiful Cape May.

everyone got their launching off point!!
  Wed. 10/4/17 10:16pm Stevel:

Yes. Going to a club and having little idea of what to expect, especially from the opening act. Experiencing more than judging, because most bands sounded entirely different.
  Wed. 10/4/17 10:21pm listener 126464:

In chatting with a friend this week about Tom Petty, he thought he wasn’t really a Tom Petty fan. And with his death and all the songs being played all week he was like god damn I guess I always liked Tom Petty. So many great songs.

thanx again @efd

My first little brother was so much a Tom Petty fan. And saw him two weeks ago in Seattle. Very upset.

I respect Petty, since "I Need to Know". Hey, efd, here it comes! Yeah!

I figured he's his generation's John Fogerty.
  Wed. 10/4/17 10:59pm Stevel:

I Need to Know really fit the New Wave/Punk vibe. Strident young men with a message and great songs. Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, Tom Petty. Rockers, especially out of the gate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/4/17 10:59pm Cooh John:

My kids sang this song to me for my 50th birthday.

  Wed. 10/4/17 11:02pm Julie M:

Hurts because it was so unexpected. Evan, you're making me stay up later than usual, and maybe making me cry a little.

@Hanley Ramirez: Been saying the same since the 70's. Tom Petty, he's my man.

Maybe the placement is similar to why grocery stores put the milk in the back corner opposite of the entrance.

great point ken!

It’s a ‘corner’ song. First or last on either side of the slab.

Yep, jmd. And leave the listener satisfied.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/4/17 11:23pm Figgsrock:

Wow EFD, nothing like playing back to back tracks from 2 of my fave LPs of the year. I am getting my Swag for Life money's worth tonight!
  Wed. 10/4/17 11:24pm Ajax:

Great tribute, thanks. That American Girl gets me every time.

thanks Ajax, Figgs, Cooh, Hanley, Scraps, Julie, and everyone!. Sorry about the lack of Hard Promises cuts jmd, that's kind of a blind spot for me for some reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/4/17 11:53pm Figgsrock:

Hey EFD, this is actually "Tonight"--did you mean to play this one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/4/17 11:55pm efd:

hm, nope, apparently our promo cd is mis-labeled. Thanks for the tip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/4/17 11:57pm efd:

... or mis-sequenced, because the label matches the track list I see online.

is it just me or is"tonite" playing at a higher speed than it should be?
