like that background music - what is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 9:37pm efd:

hey Mika! It's a loop from a song called "Saturday Night Fever" by Lordz Of Brooklyn from the early '90s
  Wed. 7/18/18 9:39pm Mika:

Thanks efd!

@efd Great song for your Pop Roxx segment this am. It's become one of my favorite segments.

awesome, thanks Medson!

Good evening Funkstituents! It's great to be here. This track by Wussy is the sound I like!

welcome chris, and welcome all commenteers and lurkers! Thanks for tuning in tonight!

I Lived in Milwaukee in the early 80's- Einstein's Riceboys seemed to pop up around '81-'82, and I saw their name around town a lot on fliers and gig listings. But I never saw them and don't know a thing about them except I loved the name. I didn't have the radio on when you played them so I don't even know if I would recognize the song. Other newly formed Milwaukee bands around that time were Tense Experts, Oil Tasters (fave of mine), Boy Dirt Car, X-Cleavers. Also emerging were Couch Flambeau and Die Kreutzen.

hey EFD lovin' it !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 9:58pm Bootsie:

Fun fact: "comprising" is actually correct. Sans the "of."
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 9:59pm Switchblade Batman:

Hey EFD, as usual great show. But is the network 77 you're talking about? www.network77.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 9:59pm efd:

aargh! I always get crossed up between "comprising" and "composed of!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:00pm efd:

hey Tome! Thanks for the MKE info, mark! There was a great Oil Tasters reissue a while back that I'd forgotten about so thanks for the reminder!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:02pm Bootsie:

I had always thought it was "comprised of," until recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:08pm JakeGould:

Hey EFD!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:09pm chris_in_space:

It's all about context. Al Stewart never sounded so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:10pm efd:

Switchblade, yes, that's it!
Hey Jake!
chris, 100% correct.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/18/18 10:10pm Uncle Michael:

This record always sounds great to me.

Undeniably
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 10:14pm Switchblade Batman:

I think Patton Oswalt was tweeting about it a while ago. I meant to check it out. THanks for the reminder!
  Wed. 7/18/18 10:14pm ice in Bklyn:

I often refer to myself as a two-hit wonder, but that’s usually related to pot smoking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/18/18 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

I saw a reference on Facebook to the the second episode of Network 77 being up, but when I checked, it was still the first one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/18/18 10:16pm Uncle Michael:

I was actually hoping to debut the Creamer single...but I don't have it yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:17pm efd:

I just bought it at about 8:50pm tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/18/18 10:18pm Uncle Michael:

I'd hoped to debut the new Lemon Twigs but Pseu beat me to that one.

I'M NOT COMPETITIVE.

OMFG EFD, are you an Al Stewart obsessive now?
  Wed. 7/18/18 10:24pm Rammstein:

Totally worth it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:25pm Bootsie:

I _thought_ "Year of the Cat" sounded different from the way I remembered...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:26pm Gordon FM:

Year of the Cat is one of the best recordings ever. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/18/18 10:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

That song is so good, it has nine lives.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 10:27pm Switchblade Batman:

Aww, thanks for the shoutout @EFD
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:36pm JakeGould:

Nothing wrong with being passionate about an artist like Al Stewart.
  Wed. 7/18/18 10:37pm as from mp:

en attendant = only the t is silent. you may be confusing with 3rd person plural 'ils attendent' where ent is silent but hard d sound is pronounced... hope that helps, not too pedantic
  Wed. 7/18/18 10:40pm Mags in Rockaway Beach:

Great show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 10:40pm efd:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 11:15pm efd:

a great moment in recorded sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 11:15pm efd:

steve, I note that you are now lowercasing your first initial and uppercasing your last initial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 11:18pm Mike Sin:

Two versions of "Saturday Night," correct? UK and US versions have different vocals, IIRC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 11:19pm efd:

@Jake all is forgiven!
(actually I wasn't even upset in the first place!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 11:20pm efd:

ooh, Mike, that sounds familiar now that you mention it
  Wed. 7/18/18 11:25pm steveL:

efd: My graphic adjustment is because I wiped it from the app (see Rammstein) and couldn't remember exactly how it was. Also, I've wanted to clarify this initial. For a long time.

Possibly overthinking, but hey.
  Wed. 7/18/18 11:25pm DJ E:

Got to see Electric Six last year when they came down to S. Florida. Really fun show.

"We have come to S. Florida to make a record with O.J. Simpson"
  Wed. 7/18/18 11:26pm DJ E:

Sorry, been meaning to mention it since you said they were playing downstairs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 11:30pm efd:

yeah, I saw them last year around this time downstairs. Not on a Wednesday, obvs.
