I don't suppose there's a song called Nederlandse Kooikerhondje, but if you can pronounce it you pass the audition!

(for those not on Twitter, my car didn't start when I went to leave my house to drive here, so I had to call AAA and got here about 10 minutes before 9.)

I do have some standards, Barkevious!

I give this set a K-9 rating!

Hey EFD! I remember riding the subway with my parents in the mid-'70s and seeing an ad for Bowie's Diamond Dogs. I had some clue about Bowie then and knew he was someone important. Was Bowie ever a pet parent?
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 9:38pm herb.nyc:

ah, Bowie author will be at soho McNally Jackson bk store on Thur feb 21 (wait, Iman lives 1 block away!)

You know, I used to be obsessed with “Whip It” in Junior High School… And then somehow unless another person is playing it somewhere I forget it exists. THANKS!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 9:51pm Matt Fiveash:

What's up dawg- We were rooting so hard last night for Burns the longhaired dachshund. Oh well. At any rate, you are whippen it good so far tonight!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 9:54pm efd:

ha, thanks Matt! He was the sentimental favorite for sure.
  Wed. 2/13/19 9:55pm steveL:

Whip It is always acceptable for Whippet
  Wed. 2/13/19 9:57pm steveL:

Lots of what I hear on WFMU reminds me of X-Ray. Much of it intentional, no doubt. Either way, it's comforting.
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:00pm jen:

this priors song SLAPS
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:00pm twinoak170:

I just watched Burns win the hound group, he is beautiful.
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:08pm Eddy in Australia:

Did someone say "well-adjusted Australian"? Hi to EFD and the gang.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:17pm efd:

ha, thought that might flush you out Eddy :)
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:17pm Mister Dobalina:

RiP my friend.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:18pm Andrew S:

Well said EFD I could just listen to x-ray and Jones talk all day. Music great of course but anybody can spin music. I'll really miss hearing his voice on Sundays
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:19pm LilyAbigale:

Thank you.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:21pm Andrew S:

No offense meant by anybody can spin music :) some do it way better than others of course. Just meant that the music was almost incidental when i listened. They could play anything and id still listen
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:21pm efd:

I gotcha, Andrew.
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:26pm steveL:

The music sets were unapologetic, by WFMU "standards," and they're frequently very inspired, but I too loved every minute of their conversations.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:26pm twinoak170:

Loving the show tonight Evan.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:28pm efd:

thanks twinoak, much appreciated
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:32pm Andrew S:

yeah steveL thats what i loved too. No pretension, no fucks given about what music is "cool". Cool without trying.
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:38pm Eddy in Australia:

EFD: You know me too well! By the way, I was wondering when you were going to get hip to Parsnip.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:39pm efd:

I guess you could say I'm now Pars-hip!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:39pm twinoak170:

I heard this Parsnip song the other night, how can you forget those vocals?
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:40pm Andrew S:

Hope you stick with us for a long time EFD
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:40pm Eddy in Australia:

Melburnians - you got it!
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:41pm steveL:


Probably not. Hey Eddy!
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:43pm steveL:

I was closer than I thought!
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:44pm Eddy in Australia:

Re. Parsnip: Check out their two previous releases on Anti-Fade. A playlist search shows that Nate K seems to be fond of them.
Hey Steve!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:55pm efd:

Duly noted, Eddy!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 10:55pm efd:

@Andrew S I hope so too!
  Wed. 2/13/19 10:57pm Eddy in Australia:

Imagine growing up in Australia in the '70s and seeing Supernaut play that song on our national TV pop show. Clue: the meaning wasn't so obvious to a kid back then!
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:00pm Bob from Toronto:

On World Radio Day I want to express my gratitude to WFMU for being such a great radio station.
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:02pm Eddy in Australia:

^^^ What Bob from Toronto said ^^^
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:02pm efd:

Thank you Bob, that's nice to hear.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:04pm Andrew S:

good one bob from toronto, didnt know there was such a thing. WFMU is one of my favourite things in life, radio in general. Maybe you caught some of the chatter about CBC Brave New Waves last week, being from Toronto. That was my gateway but Im pretty much locked into wfmu last 20 years or so
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:06pm Mister Dobalina:

Nice head bobber...
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:21pm twinoak170:

nice foot tapper...
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:24pm Bob from Toronto:

Andrew I used to stay up late at night taping Brave New Waves. Still miss that great radio show.
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:27pm Motobro:

Here here, I second Tom from Toronto’s sentiments.
Thank you Evan.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:34pm twinoak170:

That’s a killer track.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:38pm efd:

yeah, I haven't had a chance to check out the whole SVE album yet but if that was any indication I need to catch up!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:42pm Mister Dobalina:

Very cool show !
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:43pm steveL:

Eerie Family should open for Deep Blue. If they like.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:43pm Tommy in Neversink:

FMU is essential for my psychological well being
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:44pm Tommy in Neversink:

Unfortunately I can't get it now terrestrially , 90.1 is down
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:45pm steveL:

Ok, Dark Blue. Holy shit! Nice.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:45pm royvis:

Tommy in Neversink, I was just thinking the same thing. Beautiful area, Neversink is.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:46pm efd:

@Tommy there's a power outage affecting our 90.1 transmitter, hopefully it will be up and running before long
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:47pm herb.nyc:

Since Australia is here, I learned Ron Peno of Died Pretty has health issues. I saw them at Maxwell's. If X.Ray were here, he might make a joke about the surname.
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:47pm efd:

ha, great minds Steve!
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:47pm steveL:

From your lips...

AAA show, thanks Evan. See you all again!
Avatar Wed. 2/13/19 11:58pm efd:

ha, thanks!
  Wed. 2/13/19 11:59pm steveL:

God/Goddess bless WFMU, it's DJs, staff and engineers who make top shelf recordings of wonderful bands! Mike Sin, I'm looking at you and your ilk!
  Thu. 2/14/19 12:01am Eddy in Australia:

Great show, Evan. RIP X.Ray.
  Thu. 2/14/19 11:05pm John from CDA:

Tak, would the Oneida song be "Sheets of Easter", aka "light light light light light"?
