Listener comments!

  9:07pm john:

Hey Evan! Well, any show that starts with (or anywhere contains) The Saints (even if I missed it, dammit!) has already reached levels of awesomeness!
  9:14pm efd:

thanks john! More awesome music to come (naturally).
  9:15pm cheri:

hiya evan & everybody,,,i'm always ready to get funked with efd!!!
  9:16pm Joe:

I'm sensing... a theme...
  9:18pm Peter Gabriel:

Here Comes the Flood, we'll say goodbye to flesh and blood...
  9:19pm Amanda:

EFD, this is genius.
  9:20pm Madi H:

Very happy b/w all these Wednesday night tunes V. popular.
  9:21pm Richard from Venezuela:

Good night to Evan and all the listeners.
  9:22pm john:

Rooting for the Go-Betweens here to fill out the Brisbane contingent, but then again I always am.
  9:23pm Richard from Venezuela:

Please, a Cardiacs song.
  9:23pm cheri:

you're soo rite,,,madi.h,, evan is a GOD!
  9:24pm efd:

john, go-betweens will be wrapping up the set.

Thanks for the comments everyone, greatly appreciated as always!
  9:24pm Joe:

this song is great, except I think it's actually "Hand of LAW"
  9:25pm efd:

oh, you're right! Freudian slip? "act of god?"
  9:27pm Amanda:

I appreciate this song, not just because it's about me.
  9:28pm cheri:

so evan how are you on this snowy nite?
  9:28pm Joe:

Hrm. It seems a major Austrialian city is underwater.

... I get all my news from the Evan "Funk" Davies show.
  9:30pm Amanda:

And... we come full circle.

Thank you, sir. Thank you so much.
  9:31pm cheri:

ohhh evan this ddc wants to know if you have any donna summer?
  9:31pm Richard from Venezuela:

Great set of songs. I dont wanna sleep.
  9:33pm efd:

Thanks Richard! Sorry, I couldn't find a Cardiacs song in time. Thanks for staying up!
  9:35pm cheri:

no donna summer for ddc??
  9:37pm efd:

cheri, I'm losing my patience with you.
  9:39pm Cheri is So Rite:

Cheri you are so rite about sno 'n' how to spell nite 'n' stuff. I like how you said about what ddc wants because nobody knows how to read his mine like you read mine!
  9:43pm cheri:

evan i'm very sorry-- let's start over no hard feelings,ok??
  9:58pm Commenter Clinic:

Cheri, you may want to consider letting freeform DJs pick their own music rather than constantly directing, and then reposting your request when someone politely and conflict-avoidantly ignores the request.

Also, try not to ask questions all the time about DJs' prior and upcoming personal activities. It's stalkery and skeeves the other commenters.

Over and out.
  9:59pm cheri:

i think i should say goodnight now,,,evan i don't you angry at me,,,see you next week,,,
  10:12pm seang:

been digging these jet black berries tunes, thanks efd!
  10:12pm ScottC:

Jim Carrol is spinning in his grave...
  10:13pm john:

The memory banks are a little depleted these days, but I do seem to recall hearing these guys on WNYU way back when...and they still sound great!
  10:15pm efd:

john, you're correct - they used to be called New Math, then later changed their name. The song I just played was one of my faves from 1981 or so - they re-recorded some New Math songs with their new singer for this CD.
  10:20pm john:

Yeah, I thought that was a pre-JBB song, but I couldn't remember New Math to save my life. Guess a lot of kids had the same problem.
  10:33pm Amanda:

Yeah, I was waiting for that segue. This is my favorite song lately, btw.
  10:34pm efd:

Amanda, you know me too well! :)
  10:36pm Amanda:

I mean, they DO sound almost the same!
  10:38pm efd:

it's true.
  10:40pm Danne D:

Hi Amanda, Hi EFD, Hi everyone.
  10:42pm randy in NC:

The stuff on this Like CD is SO CATCHY.....
  10:42pm Amanda:

Heyo, Danne!

I am so happy to hear this Like song as well...
  10:44pm randy in NC:

And I mean everything on it too...
  10:44pm Nat the Cake:

i've been noticing a fair amount of crossover between WFMU and the Barnes & Noble in-store playlist in the past month or so...... it's like we're all connected through the same psychic mailing list...
  10:48pm Oh Nat you didn't:

Clearly B&N employees cannot read, do not know of WFMU but are psychic & that's why they get the big bucks.
  10:50pm Christopher:

i LOVE that conspiracy of owls record!!
  10:50pm Nat the Cake:

big bucks indeed!
  10:53pm Ani Benglian:

Come again...Your favorite 2010 Band/Album? Thanks.
  10:56pm Amanda:

Conspiracy of Owls, self-titled.
  10:57pm efd:

Ani, it's the self-titled Conspiracy of Owls album.

If you click the link at the top of the playlist that says "Back to The Evan "Funk" Davies Show playlists" there's a link on that page to all my favorites from last year.
  11:00pm cheri:

evan--i'm sorry but i won't be here next week..i'll be out of town,,will be back in two weeks thanx for your forgivness,,,
  11:04pm saintpeg:

Great show! Will definitely revisit via the archives.
  11:07pm Danne D:

Safe travels cheri!
  11:08pm Danne D:

Thanks for always providing quality Evan. Have really only been able to get bits of the show today but of course looking forward to the archive.

As an aside you'll be happy to learn that my new boss is a Red Sox fan.
  11:09pm Ticket Oasis Police:

Nice "Ticket". I want a do over.
  11:10pm Madi H:

The using-both-sliders innovation is epic.
  11:14pm Ani Benglian:

PH sounds like Iggy.
  11:15pm squidy:

oh yeah!
  11:20pm efd:

What up, squidy?

Ani: Not that there's anything wrong with that. (Is there?)


TOP: you'll get your do-over next week.

Danne: Thanks!
  11:23pm Christopher:

that guitar intro sounds a lot like the Velvets 'Rock n Roll'
  11:24pm Ani Benglian:

Nothing wrong with Iggy whatsovever!
  11:26pm cheri:

evan just one last question---am i still always welcome??
  11:28pm Latest:

Does comma girl know you're taken?!!
  11:39pm Danne D:

Have a good night everyone.
Thanks again Evan. Nobody does it like you, man.
  11:39pm Punk To A Shun:

All those commas upset my colon sometimes. :-)
  11:40pm Taylor:

OK, friends, gateways to geekery time: I have no Cheap Trick albums. Never heard one. Where do I start? Where do I continue? What's essential?
  11:40pm Psychic B&N Laid Off Worker:

Does anyone else hear....breathing?
  11:42pm efd:

Taylor, imho you can't go wrong with the first one (self-titled). In Color, or Dream Police. After that they start getting a little spottier.
  11:46pm Uh Huh!:

Evan is so right. Any CT album with an actual 1970s release date is classic CT. There are four of those. The eponymous first album did well with reviewers but not w/ the public. Dream Police charted highest.

The Japanese bought all their stuff for years, but Japan is Japan -- just ask Spinal Tap. :-)
  11:47pm john:

I'm going to add a vote for Heaven Tonight as the best of all. First s/tt one way up there, and dont' forget Budokan. More recently, Rockford was the best record since Dream Police or even HT. .
  11:49pm Uh Huh!:

For additional reference:

  11:49pm efd:

oh yes, Heaven Tonight is also very good! s/t, In Color, Dream Police, Heaven Tonight are all solid. I never really got into Budokan, but my general dislike of live albums has been covered here before.
  11:54pm Taylor:

Thanks, everyone. I'm a guy with a lot of work to do (and not just because I just dipped my first toe into the Kinks discography with "Arthur").
  11:54pm john:

I'm with you there on the general point of non-live-album-fandom. Expanded Budokan set an awfully good intro to the band, all the same.

Interesting side item there: Live Albums For People Who Hate Live Albums. It'd be a short list if I could think of any more.
  11:56pm Madi H:

Jeff Beck Wired. Peter Frampton.
  11:57pm Madi H:

That Manzanera record.
  11:57pm Taylor:

Miles Davis "Pangaea", of course...that baby's unstoppable.
  11:59pm Ani Benglian:

Aias is great.
  12:08am efd:

Thanks everyone for listening and commenting (if anyone is actually still looking at this)!
