Listener comments!

  11:17pm Spoony:

The final show! I will miss this, but I'm looking forward to everything you've got planned in your new slot.

Prince Tuesday is no more, but one step closer to being crowned King Friday.
  11:18pm Taylor:

That was the voice of David Ossman lugubriously announcing the artist and label on that Neil Young ad just now...hear more of David starting next week on The Firesign Theatre Radio Hour!... "The next five minutes of the Firesign Theatre's avant-garde religious radio happening Dear Friends is brought to you by the makers of Louie's Wipe-Out Pumice Hamburgers."
  11:21pm Swami:

Squeeze! Man thanks Evan; a guilty pleasure indulged!
  11:21pm john:

Hey Evan! Looking forward to the summer sked, but I have to say that nothing puts the 11pm slot in perspective so much as tuning in a couple weeks ago at 4am from London for Dan Epstein. Incidentally, we're back.
  11:27pm Sybil:

efd, You're moving to a different night? I'll never know what day of the week it is! I'll keep thinking it's Wednesday when it's Thursday... or no, wait...
  11:28pm Sybil:

Someday, we'll be together. Yup.
  11:28pm efd:

Hi John, welcome back! And hi everyone else! Thanks for the David Ossman info, Taylor, and haha Spoony.

Sybil, yep, moving to Wednesday nights at 9pm starting next week.
  11:29pm Sybil:

P.S. thanks for Squeeze via Hot Rats, just what was needed.
  11:30pm AA:

They say that w/o his voice modulator, Tom Scharpling sounds just like EFD. But that's just a dirty rumor. I mean, they wouldn't change the sched just to throw us off the scent...would they?
  11:31pm DJ Terre T:

  11:32pm DJ Terre T:

  11:37pm DJ Terre T:

Hear hear EfD! --- we will miss Joe B sooooo much!!
  11:37pm Sybil:

Interesting summer schedule.

Oh, dang, you're right - No Joe B! :(
  11:37pm Ray L:

  11:38pm Chuck:

No Hatch either!
  11:38pm Sybil:

So no more Midnight Ticket Oasis?
  11:40pm Ray L:

Hey, can someone point me to the new schedule?
  11:40pm Chuck:

Ray - http://www.wfmu.org/table?period=26
  11:41pm Ray L:

Thanks, Chuck!
  11:42pm efd:

Sybil - I'll still be giving tickets away, but you're right - it won't be called the Midnight Ticket Oasis anymore.

And Chuck, yes, Hatch is not on the summer schedule either unfortunately.
  11:45pm Sybil:

no "Give the Drummer Some"...
OTOH, some old friends back. But man, a lot of changes.
  11:48pm Camel:

Add one more to the unemployment rolls.
  11:52pm Joe:

I'm wearing my Three Chord Monte T-shirt in silent protest.

Of what, exactly, I'm not sure.
  11:55pm Joe:

and this whole Archie Bronson outfit album is straight crazy, yo. Check out this video for "Shark's Tooth"

  11:55pm Aharon:

This song will make us all forget our woes.
  11:57pm Sybil:

"Je ne suis pas tres drogue" made me forget all my... eh, I forgot.
  11:59pm osvi:

Hell yeah. Tuesday night.
  12:03am Laurie:

Shut up. I want to see the Trashcan Sinatras.
  12:04am Laurie:

  12:06am Toni Daytona:

evan, could u please play some jacuzzi boys????? they're my faves!
  12:07am Laurie:

j/k, that was me, Laurie.
  12:14am efd:

ha, you had me for a second there Laurie!
  12:14am Joe:

These guys are so insanely over the top I love it. Shades of Tenacious D, but less Jack Black mugging and more sick riffage. I hope you asked Moby when he developed a sense of humor. Not to diss Moby even though I totally just did.
  12:18am efd:

I SHALL TOLERATE NO DISSING OF MOBY ON THIS COMMENTS BOARD! As it turned out, he and I have a special connection which shall be revealed next week. Plus, he was a very nice and down-to-earth dude who shreds a guitar like nobody's business.
  12:20am Joe:

Diss taken back. I have admitted to having danced my ass off to Moby in the past ON THIS VERY BOARD, SIR.

PS. What is this Notekillers this is AMAZING.
  12:23am Taylor:

That Notekillers was something else, I must say. Riffs that break breaks. Makes me forget all about my need to diss Moby. Wait, what?
  12:25am Sybil:

Speaking of death march, ST Louis - Dodgers still scoreless in the bottom of the 8th...
  12:30am Joe:

Oh man I saw Tragedy open for Electric Six last summer... definitely a weird night.
  12:31am john:

Oh man, I don't care that I just got home yesterday. Now I want to go back to LA!
  12:33am Sybil:

Not scoreless any more...
  12:34am Joe:

Evan, it's cool, you have bed music... you don't need to make "I'm looking for something" mouth music. to fill dead air.

even though it was highly, highly amusing.
  12:36am efd:

ha, good point Joe.

Sybil, what happened?
  12:37am Michael from the Left Coast:

Wow at least ten years since I heard this
  12:38am Sybil:

Manny batted in a run. Now bases loaded, 2 out.
  12:39am Danne D:

Hi Funk Friends!

So is the Midnight Ticket Oasis now going to be the Mid-Night Ticket Oasis?

Congrats on the new time slot Evan :) Now all your female admirers won't have to fear losing their beauty sleep to hear you ;)
  12:40am Sybil:

The Mid-Ten Ticket Oasis?
  12:43am Joe:

Good point Danne - congratulations are most definitely in order. Prime Time, Davies! PRIME TIME!

I've also been researching songs with "10 o'clock" in them that you might somehow fit giving away tickets into. The results are, so far, not promising.
  12:43am Danne D:

There's so much good in the new schedule that it alleviates the heartbreak that is the lack of Keili.

I mean Tamar's back, Chris T's back, a few more folks getting chances. It's very good.
  12:43am Sybil:

And so the inning ends, score 1-0.

This game, I tell you.
  12:44am Joe:

Bennet4Sennate promises to be extremely... promising. The downside is Marty's bleeding-edge weirdess is pushed back into solid archive-only listening territory for moi.
  12:46am Sybil:

I for one am glad to see Bob Brainen back on the air, albeit on Saturday morning.

I still don't feel Sunday evenings end right without him. No knock on the folks who have been on at those times...
  12:53am Joshua K:

The Firesign Theatre Radio Hour on Tuesdays. I kinda miss the Alan Watts recordings and Joe Frank sometimes.
I could see The Goon Show or something like that in that kind of spot.
  12:54am Danne D:

well Sybil, I still miss Wild Girl on the weekend :)

and for that matter, Terre T's slot once upon a time was Wednesday night if I'm not mistaken.

and good point Evan.

  12:54am Laurie:

Is there no Pseu's Thing with a Hook this summer? If so, color me sadd.
  1:03am Danne D:

Sybil I now have that awful Color Me Badd Song in my head competing with Evan's show - no fair :(
  1:03am Laurie:

That's what you get for calling me Sybil.
  1:05am efd:

Laurie, that is correct; Pseu is taking the summer off.

Hi, Danne D! (You're blaming Sybil for Laurie's comment, though)

Sybil, Bob's been on Saturday mornings since last fall, I think.
  1:08am Sybil:

Really? I'm so sad I didn't notice. Saturday morning not being my best time for alertness.
  1:08am The Fallen Kaiser Catfish:

Midnight in Catfish City and Mr. Funk blesses us with The Higher State.
Sweet Dreams!
Dan Elektro
  1:12am Sybil:

So the game ended (1-0 Dodgers), I had to switch rooms, I turned on the radio in my bedroom, and the first thing I heard was...Harlan T. Bobo, apparently. I was very disoriented. For a moment. Several of them.
  1:15am efd:

Greetings, Mr. Elektro! Thanks for checking in.

Joshua, I'm curious to hear what goes on in that Firesign Theater Hour myself.

Sybil, sorry to disorient you!
  1:25am Sybil:

It was a good kind of disorientation.
  1:28am Danne D:

Thx for the shoutout EFD :) Sorry for confusing posters - I'm a wee bit tired right now.
  1:29am Danne D:

Btw, I fully expect the Loaders to commence romping on my Knuckles any second...
  1:30am Sybil:

This is my fave rave of all time. This "month" anyway.
  1:32am efd:

Danne, I'm just letting you get comfortable at the start of the week before I put the fantasy baseball hammer down.

Sybil I agree, I love that EWITFR...N track.
  1:41am Sybil:

Joe: a list of songs about time
  1:44am Danne D:

Strausberg was just insane tonight!
Faced 24 guys and struck out 14 of 'em. Unreal.

Btw, I agree that that was an inspired set, sir.
  1:53am Joe:

Wow Sybil, just wow.
  1:55am Danne D:

won this CD during the '09 marathon. pure awesomeness
  1:59am Joe:

great show, see you next week, brand new time, same great channel
