Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Listener comments!

  9:06pm DJ Terre T:

Heya MC! NOICE I was hopin for AC/DC "Dog Eat Dog" after the Nuge! Is there an UPPER CRUST tune lurking in this set? :)
  9:06pm Catywampus:

Eat cat too.
  9:08pm DJ Terre T:

Wow ru musically saying that u GOT a pooch??
  9:08pm Steve:

I have actually eaten dog. Tasted like rabbit (what were expecting, chicken?) - s
  9:09pm efd:

Terre, no, I'm just saluting the Westminster dog show that ended last night
  9:11pm john:

Well, this was probably pretty obvious, but at least one of us is hoping for Shannon...
  9:13pm DJ Terre T:

Awww heeee---very cute!
  9:18pm ADL:

Hard to type while dancing around in chair.
  9:27pm Joshua K:

Here is a selection of some of my finest dog pics for all to enjoy:
  9:28pm Ken Temkin:

Slaughter and the Dogs?
  9:28pm Parq:

It sez here that Hickory was taken to Sardi's today. Most nearly perfect dog in the world and they take him to an overpriced tourist trap? Lucky for him Tavern on the Green is closed.
  9:30pm Danne D:

Hey Evan :)

Thanks for playing that Herman's Hermits song in my honor ;o)
  9:30pm Joshua K:

Here are 6 more enjoyable photos in one album:
  9:31pm efd:

aw nuts, next year for Slaughter & the Dogs, Ken.

And "Shannon," John. Maybe.
  9:31pm Danne D:

This is the Great Pyrenees that my sister and her family adopted:
  9:31pm Aharon:

We could probably tell your cat about this show. If she's like every other cat in the world, she won't listen.
  9:35pm Danne D:

He was 45 pounds at one point - my bro-in-law and nephew and sister are involved with dog adoptions/rescue. They decided to adopt him (he was up to about 90 when they got him - he's now probably about 105).

He's such a sweet dog
  9:35pm Ken Temkin:

Backwards Dog by the Soup Dragons?
  9:37pm Danne D:

This is Lucky now:

His story is included with the picture.
  9:38pm Danne D:

Evan so should get that job at the next Westminster Show
  9:38pm Parq:

Evan, given how badly Michael LaFave stumbled through the second night for a second year in a row, you may be closer than ever to scoring that job.
  9:39pm Parq:

Danne, Lucky is magnificent.
  9:40pm Danne D:

If you have spare money aside from that earmarked for the Marathon and are so moved feel free to make a donation to Gentle Giants dog rescue - they do good work:
  9:40pm Danne D:

He is such a sweet dog, too. With all he's been through he still somehow doesn't have a mean bone in his body.
  9:42pm Aharon:

Some dog, Danne!
  9:42pm mildred:

I liked that tune you played behind your breed descriptions- what was it? please.
  9:42pm Danne D:

Thx Parq :) Thx Aharon :)
  9:44pm Danne D:

I still think that Herman's Hermits Song ("dandy") was secretly in my honor :)
  9:46pm Steve:

So Hickory was taken to Sardi's? I wonder if he wound up as the guest of honor of a private function? -s
  9:46pm Danne D:

sure Evan... :)
  9:53pm calzone!:

Bitch is back?
  9:54pm Danne D:

LOL Calzone!
  9:57pm efd:

calzone, I've played that one before - was trying to stick to mostly new songs this year.
  9:58pm Danne D:

There was a song Terre had on her premium a few years back called "Bitch" that would work, Evan. Not sure if it's FCC friendly though.
  9:58pm Danne D:

Actually I'm pretty sure it was on her first Black Cherries collection.
  9:59pm calzone!:

Of course I was riffing on EFD's doggie theme....not trying to offend any of the lady listeners...
  10:00pm Danne D:

lol I know Calzone! :)

Btw, Evan I hear there's going to celebrity phone slaves for you during the marathon?
  10:01pm Danne D:

I will say though that this show is Bitchin' so far.
  10:03pm efd:

har har - thanks Danne. I know not of these "celebrity" phone volunteers, unless of course you're referring to yourself!

Terre, if you're still out there - what Upper Crust song were you thinking of when you made your initial comment?
  10:05pm Danne D:

well, I didn't say it was an A-list celebrity ;)
though of course if the likes of Amanda or Laurie are there then that would be more of an A-list cast
  10:11pm Danne D:

Ladies, Evan's available for you to adopt:

No Disco Diva should go without :)
  10:11pm Danne D:

Volunteering during the marathon is a lot of fun folks. Scott is a wonderful volunteer wrangler I must say.
  10:12pm Danne D:

I am sad that the Pretzel Factory around the corner from the station went out of business :(

I have to see what I can do, though.
  10:14pm Danne D:

A full adoption gallery is here:
Note there are more than a few canines, both real and velvet.
  10:15pm cheri:

heeeeey evan & danne i hope you guys had a wonderfull valentines day,,i sure did,
  10:17pm Danne D:

Hi DDC :) glad you had a good Valentine's Day.
  10:23pm Danne D:

8( I think I've successfully killed the comments board tonight
  10:24pm cheri:

thank you danne,, how was your valentines day???
  10:25pm Danne D:

it was the usual, ya know, wearing black, wallowing in self-pity. good times
  10:25pm Kendall!:

yo yo. Corgis are so freaking cute. Cutest dogs ever, with apologies to my scottish terrier.

p.s. New Jersey Devils win again!!!!
  10:25pm Danne D:

(Not my favorite holiday)
  10:26pm Danne D:

Yeah, Kendall - keep the Faith :) Still would be the biggest miracle ever if they somehow keep this going.
  10:28pm Kendall!:

yesss I know. Jacques for Jack Adams so hard. Still a long way out from the playoffs but let's keep hope alive.

p.s. Evan, last year you posted a picture of my adorable dog. Here's another picture if you are interested!

  10:29pm efd:

hey Kendall! There's a pic of your Scottie on last year's dog show playlist, if I remember correctly!

Hi Cheri, thianks for checking in
  10:29pm Kendall!:

on the path back from the game nobody wanted to even mention playoffs for fear of jinxing it, but I am fearless.
  10:29pm smelly:

Oh yea!
  10:29pm Danne D:

Awwww :)
Btw, Kendall check out the flickr pic and story of the great pyr that my sister and her family have saved :)
  10:31pm Danne D:

I still think we're too far away from that to have anything to jinx, man. Still need to go like 20-5 or so to make it.
  10:31pm cheri:

well remember danne,,i'll always be your special valentine throughout the year,,,
  10:31pm Danne D:

aw thx cheri - but I know you're really Evan's girl :)

@kendall (the pic is up earlier in the comments)
  10:32pm Kendall!:

oh goodness this dog looks like it could take on a polar bear. just maxin relaxin yeaaah dawg

  10:33pm Danne D:

it's an amazing story Kendall. He's still got about another 15 more pounds to put on
  10:36pm Kendall!:

It is! I hope he gets adopted. My small Jersey City apartment couldn't possibly support a pup of that size but I'm positive someone will take him in.
  10:38pm Danne D:

He is adopted. My sister and her family kept him.
  10:40pm Danne D:

My nephew is really good with him. He and my brother-in-law do a lot of dog rescue transport relays on weekends. (That is they relay the dogs, not run in a relay race)
  10:43pm Danne D:

EFD are you gonna be there at Maxwell's?
  10:44pm osvi:

It's a good thing I am off...I guess I will be visiting The City Friday!
  10:45pm Kendall!:

hey if I pledge this year will I finally get Tom Scharpling's premium?
  10:46pm cheri:

evan & danne,,,just to let you know i'll be away for the next two weeks,,,,i'm goin to fla this weekend,,
  10:46pm Danne D:

All about the marathon here Kendall:

Though I figured you'd want Evan's premium :) Or of course you can get both depending on how much you pledge :)
  10:47pm Danne D:

:( it's marathon time cheri - you'll miss the first week!
Ya gotta pledge your love (and money, especially money) to Evan :)
  10:48pm efd:

Kendall, I know that the Best Show DVD from last year is very close to being done - believe me, no one wants that to be finished more than Tom!

Osvi, that's great that you can go to the KUSF thing on Friday! Say hi to Billy for me.

Danne, unfortunately I'm going to be busy trying to get my premium CD together so I won't be able to attend in person. But I'm sure it's going to be a blast!
  10:49pm osvi:

Fo sho!
  10:50pm Danne D:

you need to find an internet cafe on the beach cheri!

You'll be sorely missed Evan! And woohoo - I think I'm getting that DVD so that's like bonus swag for me in that case :)

Can't wait to find out what you'll be doing for Hoof n Mouth - you are always a top highlight Evan
  10:51pm cheri:

evan,,,danne i'll do my best to pledge,,,don't worry
  10:52pm Danne D:

:) you may even get a celebrity answering your phone cheri :)
  10:54pm Aharon:

You going to Maxwell's, Danne? I worry the universe might explode if Happy How Do You Doers are in the same room.
  10:55pm Danne D:

For those who don't know Evan has mad drumming skills btw.

Yes, Aharon I do plan to be there. Will probably be the guy everyone is jealous of as I sport my Cherry Blossom Clinic sweatshirt :)
  10:56pm Danne D:

Don't worry Aharon it didn't explode when me and Evan were both at the Baseball Project show last year.
  10:57pm john:

Just for the record, pledge is in, which means spring training has begun!
  10:58pm efd:

Awesome, thanks John!

Also just for the record, Danne D is not me commenting under a different name. :)
  10:59pm VY:

hey little jesus - roll that rock
  10:59pm Danne D:

Cool, John :)
LOL Evan, you couldn't do a proper show if you commented as much as I do :)
Btw, I too have done my base pledge and have snagged the naming rights to Terre T.
  11:00pm Aharon:

Phew! My decision to take two trains and cross state lines vs. walking the 15 minutes to The Bell House on Friday is validated.

Danne, I think there might be a clemency clause for anything BP-related.

John, statements like that make you, technically, an enabler. In a good way.

EFD, of course, if he were, you wouldn't say, now would you?

Okay, gotta get my pledge in. And maybe cook another volunteer meal (limited fatalities last year!)
  11:01pm cheri:

evan & danne i'm affraid this is my last coment for a long time, and i'll find a way to pledge while on vacay,,,, i love you guys ,,,
  11:03pm Danne D:

Take care cheri! Have fun on the beach :) If you sneak into an internet cafe next Wednesday come say hi
  11:05pm Danne D:

For you high rollers out there, for a prepaid $1000 pledge you can get the naming rights to this segment for a whole year!
  11:05pm Holly in NC:

Hi all!

Evan, super show as always - and that's the first Fergus & Geronimo song I've really liked - thank you.

Danne D - Just checked out Lucky & his story, wow. Awesome in all sorts of ways! Even my cats are (almost) impressed & misty-eyed.
Oh, who am I kidding, I'm 1/2 hour late with play time, they'll do anything to get me to bring out ...THE TOY. ;-)
  11:07pm Danne D:

Here's the link. I have to say it's a little obscured in terms of it's visibility in the flickr stream.


Pledge you high rollers!
  11:08pm Danne D:

Thanks Holly :) He really is a total sweetheart of a dog.
Now I will try to not have my eyes tear up here in the Starbucks.
  11:09pm Elwyn:

Golden retrievers are my favourite dogs.
  11:10pm Danne D:

Elwyn is Canadian?
  11:12pm Elwyn:

I'm in Sydney.
  11:16pm Geocommenting:

Sydney, Ontario? :-P
  11:16pm Danne D:

Since when is Sydney in Canada? ;o)

Tough one for the Aussies in the USA Sevens this weekened
  11:19pm Mike McGuire:

I know, I know I'm late to the party butjust wanted to say I'm checking in for the second week in a row...do I get a prize?
  11:20pm Aharon:

There's a Sydney in Nova Scotia. It smells funny at low tide.
  11:20pm Mike McGuire:

Funny how? Funny like a smelly clown?
  11:21pm Danne D:

Prizes? That stuff happens during the Marathon, Mike :)

That scene really is creepy Evan.

LOL Aharon coming through with random Canadian knowledge
  11:21pm Prize:

@Mike -- We're actually more interested in your brother Mark
  11:22pm efd:

that's a different spelling. :0

No prize except for my deep appreciation, Mike.
  11:23pm Mike McGuire:

See...there is a Prize here...lol...thanks efd...but I am in Saint Louis...that counts for being a McGuire...
  11:24pm Danne D:

Glad to see you Mike :)
Two weeks until marathon mayhem :)
More info here, btw, in case you haven't see it yet:
  11:26pm Mike McGuire:

I'll check it out...thanks Danne D
  11:26pm cheri:

i came back just to say thanx for havin me toinght efd,,,it's been fun!!!
  11:30pm efd:

you're welcome, thanks for listening! Have a good trip.
  11:36pm blujacket:

you should really give blue velvet another shot.
  11:38pm Danne D:

thought it was 40.

Evan is a kick ass drummer!

Look in the archives for some classic previous Evan Hoof n Mouth performances. Evan doing Ratt's "Round and Round" is a personal favorite of mine :)
  11:39pm VY:

watch and rewatch Inland Empire -- leave that pesky "almost understand" business behind.
  11:42pm blujacket:

@ VY, totally. like i almost understand that last track.
  11:44pm efd:

blujacket, I saw Blue Velvet in the theater when it came out, and have seen it at least twice more since; it just doesn't do it for me.

VY, I'll give Inland Empire a shot; I did kind of like Mulholland Drive, although it was no Lost Highway (imho)
  11:45pm Joe B:

I love the Lou Reed cover of This Magic Moment from Lost Highway!
  11:45pm ?:

ohhh evan & danne i forgot to ask you is there anything you want me to bring you back?
  11:48pm Danne D:

LOL cheri :) Just have a good time :)

Thanks for a great show Evan. Have a great night everyone! Safe travels cheri.
  11:48pm Holly in NC:

I just want to share that after seeing the Laura Dern/Willem Dafoe motel scene in Wild at Heart - I just can't watch Willem Dafore in anything, ever again.
  11:49pm Elwyn:

Sydney, Australia can be regarded as a shithole despite the efforts of Oprah. People can be a bit up themselves and stuck up.
  11:50pm Holly in NC:

Barrence Whitfield!
  11:51pm Joe:

wow great show tonight!
  11:51pm Danne D:

I'm sure you make Sydney a better place Elwyn :) How are the Swans looking for this upcoming season? Anyhow, good night for real everyone.
  11:52pm blujacket:

Why are there people like Frank? Why is there so much trouble in this world? (great show)
  11:54pm Elwyn:

I have stopped paying attention to AFL ever since my team, Carlton, started sucking 10 years ago.
  12:00am VY:

@efd, I wouldn't actually recommend Inland Empire - I found it a slog. While it does have many of the fever dream qualities of Mulholland Dr. (x 6) the shot digitally IE looks bad and seems like it will never end - Lynch's intention, no doubt. You must be prepared for the ride.
  3:06pm Amanda:

Listening on the archive -- having a blast and delighted to read all these f'ing adorable comments about people's dogs, etc. I love WFMU so much. Do I say that enough? Well done, Evan!!!!
  6:02pm Shaun H.:

lovely to see the Loins getting a spin...maybe "The Dog Shit Gang" from new album 'Stuff' would have been a more apt choice however.
