Listener comments!

  9:02pm calzone!:

Wow, what a dorky Bruce song! 'Daddy, sing me a cradle song'? Jeezoids!
  9:06pm efd:

I did a quick google earlier and I think he wrote that song in like 1972 or something.
  9:07pm calzone!:

It's real corndog, even for Bruce!
  9:08pm cheri:

  9:11pm calzone!:

Have you read the Tommy James recent Auto-Bio recently? "Me, the Mob, and THe Music"? It's fantastic!
  9:14pm efd:

I haven't, but I want to; I've heard nothing but good things about it. Plus he was on Dave the Spazz's show a few months ago talking about it.
  9:15pm cheri:

  9:19pm "maddi":

Your show is the bright spot of hump day.

  9:25pm Joe:

1975, olden times!
  9:27pm cheri:

  9:32pm Kat:

  9:33pm Garrett:

I live near Lake Superior in the U.P., and people still do that song at karaoke up here.
  9:35pm Kat:

@Garrett yikes! that must make for some agonizing listening.
  9:36pm marq:

now that is what radio guys used to sound like. even though they sold something
  9:40pm efd:

Garrett, that's amazing! I'd have thought there would be some sort of unwritten ban on that (and Kat is likely correct)
  9:43pm cheri:

efd,,did you bring any bowie with you tonite??
  9:43pm marq:

40 acrcers. wish I had that many to turn around. I could do some serious damage in 40 acres if I tried to turn around in it.
  9:44pm john:

Secret Affair? Rawk!!!!
  9:50pm "maddi":

Re: Faux DJing on FB: I just want to be like you and play Wazmo Nariz on a whim. I am a person of few words and many links, taken directly from someone else.

  10:28pm efd:

cheri, I think you need to get some new material.

Kid Hougenie, I'm not really sure what to make of your comment.

Marq, thanks for sticking around!
  10:32pm marq:

I'm still here!
  10:34pm marq:

my left eye is switching. it will be fine tomorrow as long as the right one helps it out.
  10:36pm Holly in NC:

Oh my! I'm a Durhamite - but have to work ALL DAY Saturday so will miss Msr. WarRock - how inoppurtune! ;-(
  10:38pm (tha') Kid Hougenie:

he... efd your show inspires me!! to. be. raw.
  10:38pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)
I trust this show is going better than the Devils game did tonight
  10:41pm cheri:

heeey danne happy holidays i'm just chillin with evan,,,rite???
  10:41pm Holly in NC:

Would never guess this is the Vaselines, but I like...it seems they're exploring the side of the indie 80s they weren't a part of!
  10:42pm marq:

meant to say twitching. My eye is is doing that
  10:43pm Danne D:

Hey cheri :)

Happy Veterans Day tomorrow and thanks to all you veterans listening out there!

Happy Birthday parq!

Back to cheri - as to your personas, there's truly only one cheri so I'd have to vote 'nay' on bringing back any personae :)
  10:44pm Danne D:

happy birthday Marq I mean!!!

Sorry to goof up :(
  10:44pm Danne D:

knew i was gonna mess that up
  10:46pm Psychologist:

I charge $75 for each 45-minute session. Per persona. It can add up.
  10:47pm Holly in NC:

BTW, folks in Chapel Hill & Durham generally disliked being referenced as 'RTP' - and Chapel Hill truly is not. RTP.

Anyway, by birth I'm a Connecticut Yankee, and you can still totally get my goat by calling me a Tri-Stater ;-) I'm a New Englanduh!
  10:49pm efd:

In truth I was using the RTP moniker somewhat ironically... it seems somewhat akin to referring to San Francisco as "Frisco."

Too bad you'll miss the show! Call in sick! :)

(Hi Danne D!)
  10:49pm marq:

Thanks. I am still here.
  10:53pm cheri:

well time for me to head out, evan & danne thnx for the advice & company efd & danne,,, i love ya both!! g'nite
  10:54pm Danne D:

Hi Evan! :D

Hi Holly - lots of Yankees down in the Raleigh-Durham area. I go there for Thanksgiving every year to visit my mom, sis, bro and their families in fact.

I've never heard anyone called a tri-stater, though. Of course on the Jersey side of things we don't ponder Connecticut too much (and vice versa I'm sure)

G'night cheri!

Congrats on staying vertical marq :) is this birthday a big number?

Great set, Evan!

For those who want to know why I'm so sad about the Devils game, here's the epic fail of an ending:
  10:56pm cheri:

keep on rocking evan!!!
  10:57pm john:

I've got to agree, even here in the tri-statey area of Connecticut, if you said tri-state I'd think of New York or New Jersey and maybe Delaware or something.
  10:58pm Danne D:

Tri-State is only referred to in car dealership ads I believe.
And perhaps on news radio.
  10:58pm (tha') Kid Hougenie:

in that case I'm in the red 1200 large I am the instance of your reflection I say this to the entirety of the human psychic population let me reach into my hand and pull some money out of your pocket to pay you
  11:02pm marq:

I'm lovin this show after the lovin of my birthday. everyone else is gone to sleep or gone otherwise. I can keep lovin the show, but it may mean that I love smokin a roll me own smoke, anyone object?
  11:02pm Psychologist:

Puff, pass.
  11:03pm Holly in NC:

Massachusetts folk, esp. Red Sox fans (no offense, EFD) are all about 'tristate' as an epithet to describe those of us with no home state major league teams who choose to follow...er... others.

Of course here in NC I still have my Whalers!
  11:04pm steve:

youth brigade... wow!! for realz
  11:04pm Danne D:

Aimee Mann, Man? Or Astoman?

  11:07pm Joe:

I wonder where Man Man is.
  11:08pm Danne D:

dunno, man
  11:08pm The Man:

I'll never tell.
  11:10pm cheri:

  11:18pm Danne D:

  11:19pm efd:

this might be the best "In" Sound episode ever.
  11:20pm efd:

  11:20pm Joe:

  11:20pm marq:

  11:23pm Joe:

  11:27pm Michael from the Left Coast:

  11:28pm Danne D:

  11:28pm marq:

my left eye is ok now.Right one ok too
  11:30pm efd:

Hey Michael! Yeah, some good stuff earlier on if I do say so myself!

Thanks for checking in Will, good to have you here.
  11:33pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Harry left the airwaves three years ago I believe
  11:37pm marq:

I will check in for the night unless anyone needs me here? only have one beer left and such. feel pretty good otherwise. got a good woman in bed, but she has a cold. I love her and she loves me otherwise. it's my birthday. The two of us will have the off day tomorrow to do some lovin big time...if you know what I mean mamma!!
  11:40pm john:

Yreka's nowhere. Think San Francisco is northern California? Go about 300 miles north of that, turn right, and you'll be in the area. Good luck.

Hey Schoolly School, what time is it?!?
  11:41pm cheri:

  11:58pm Parq:

Fine show as always, efd. I have been away from the puter, but I see I couldn't have possibly lifted the tone of the comments any higher.
  12:00am Danne D:

Again goodnight everyone!
Have a happy b-day marq!

Hello/goodbye Parq :) you always lend light to the proceedings.

Anyhow thanks again Evan. Until next time Funk Fans :)
  12:01am Michael from the Left Coast:

That's pronounced Chin-e-box
  6:21pm yngwie:

Not the exact riff, but one could say that that "The Boy with the Arab Strap" was "inspired" by "Draggin the Line" Check it...
