  Wed. 9/18/19 9:11pm Third World Man:

Candy O was the first album I purchased with my own cash from mowing lawns but I actually went to buy the First Album and didn't know a new one was out. SO I had to mow more lawns. 8 Tracks both. Very underrated format.

@Jake that's a cool bit of trivia!

I'm curious about this quote attributed to Ric about people not understanding them. They always seemed so cool and calculated, what could he have meant?

@Bootsie: And “Hello Again” was directed by Andy Warhol. He also plays a bartender in the video. And the opening “Rocktalk” is great, “Phallic symbols… Big buildings look like phallic symbols…”

The Cars eponymous album, in my view, a nearly perfect rock album. Lush and sparse, top level pop lyrics, all great.

ROMEO VOID!!!!!!!!’
  Wed. 9/18/19 10:30pm cee dubbles:

my better half spent the entire 9/19/93 Dylan Supper Club show jammed into Ric's ribs, Paulina tucked under his other arm
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 10:31pm loudersoft:

There are a world of songs I don't think people realize Ric produced & as you dig deeper into discographies you discover songs by Cake Like and Guided By Voices and Stratford 4 (as Evan mentioned) and so on. The look on people's faces when they learn he produced two seminal Bad Brains albums is priceless.
  Wed. 9/18/19 10:32pm steveL:

Wow.

Heya Evan, this is awesome. The Cars may have been a bit droll live, but their music lives on in high fi stereo.

Great interviews. Learning a bunch and appreciating Ocasek more.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:00pm Joe:

The “wait he did that ?” Discovery for me is the Iggy Pop track Fire Engine. Which is basically Iggy fronting Ministry with Ric producing.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:03pm Carmichael:

You cant play everything, but moving in stereo is epic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 11:07pm Bootsie:

Ok I'm making a break for it. Fantastic tribute, Evan! Looking forward to catching up on the archive tomorrow. The Cars — along with Sparks — were basically my intro into alternative Music, back when alternative meant something totally different than it does now. And I love both to this day. Thanks again for this show. G'night, all!

The joke (?) about Roy Thomas Baker in the record business is that inevitably the drums sound the same on all his records. (The drums, not the drumming)
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 11:10pm dB from Oakland:

I've never gotten any traction on this theory, but I'm pretty sure Ric used this song as a jumping-off point for "Just What I Needed" www.youtube.com...

... the song I just posted is "yummy yummy yummy" by the 1910 fruit gum company. The borrowed part is just the opening riff ...
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 11:14pm dB from Oakland:

... another opening bit i noticed in the last couple of days is the drum intro to "Gimme Some Slack", which is an amazing song. But I think Ric riffed on devo's drum opener from "Whipit" to start that song off

I do like how he wrote this monster hit and gave it to Ben Orr to sing
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:50pm steveL:

You know what I mean.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:51pm steveL:

I remember this video being a big deal.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:52pm Joe:

This has been great. This was one of those passing I did feel the punch in the gut to hear. Thank you so much EFD. As I said second to none.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 11:52pm BrassKnuckles:

I remember why some blonde guy was singing instead of Ric. I didn't know the bassist sang on a lot of their hits.

Hi Brad...
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:53pm Carmichael:

YESSSSSS
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:53pm Third World Man:

Every Cars fan needs to relisten to Door to Door. It's the Cars trying to be a band after their "Back In Black" sample to death period. It's a solid album with no filler. It's just not the Cars or Candy O. I find it better than heartbreak City in consistency.

@efd didn't you once say you've never seen Fast Times?
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:55pm P-90:

Awesome RO special show tonight, even before considering how astonishingly little time there was to put it together. Bravo, Dude.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:55pm Joe:

As much as I love Fast Times I have made it my personal mission to get people to listen to the greatness of this song outside of its intro.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:55pm Third World Man:

EFD I now have my own show locally for four hours locally you and three other FMU DJ's are my influences. I just wanted you to know.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:55pm steveL:

Ben Oor had the smooth melodic voice. Might have made the difference.

So many good songs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 11:55pm efd:

@medson I don't recall saying that but it's true that I haven't seen it
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:55pm Carmichael:

If you want some good Easton, listen to Touch and Go.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:56pm Spicoli-bro:

Oh yeah dude! This is a radical tubation ride.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:56pm Third World Man:

easily the best produced Cars Track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 11:56pm Fuzzy:

Right into All Mixed Up, as it should be (I hope)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 11:56pm efd:

@TWMan thanks, that's nice to hear
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:58pm Third World Man:

perfect tribute to a great talent

Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 11:58pm dB from Oakland:

it's all mixed up
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:58pm Danne D:

one of the all time great rolls from one song into another. And All Mixed Up is def in my top 2 Cars songs.

Lovely. Well done, Evan!
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:58pm Third World Man:

this show goes on my ipod
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:58pm steveL:

Damn, Fuzzy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 11:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, efd. Quite a lot of ground covered tonight. Will miss Ric Ocasek. Glad you're ending with this pair. I like how the songs on this album fit together, one after the next.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 11:59pm jt:

Thanks for this tribute - well done.
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:59pm Carmichael:

I love he sings Itsallmixedup, all at once
  Wed. 9/18/19 11:59pm P-90:

Poor Eddie Money’s tribute got completely blown off the map by a much bigger star’s. “Story of my life...” he’d say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 11:59pm Alex of Chicago:

Thanks, EFD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 11:59pm Fuzzy:

I didn't do it!

  Thu. 9/19/19 12:01am Third World Man:

To think they started as a CSNY type group
Avatar Thu. 9/19/19 12:01am jt:

heard the Cars songs when they were new on WBCN with thirteen year old ears...

  Thu. 9/19/19 8:58am TracyD:

This ruled- thanks EFD!
  Thu. 9/19/19 1:59pm Eddy in Australia:

Just finished listening to the archive. Simply put, this was great radio.
