Evening...tonight's show is cash only, as to avoid taxes.

Holy shit! I don't think I ever heard this BOA. I loved the live album. My uncle had it. So nasty. Jim Dandy is one of my favorite rock vocalists on voice quality, primarily,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 9:07pm efd:

I just love how Mr. Dandy is so over the top in his vocal performance on that version of "Taxman."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/15/15 9:08pm Stevel:

Mr. Dandy, indeed!

He was rarely under the top. For that, I loved him, and tolerated the phallic photo of him straddling a Civil War canon in CREEM magazine.

hi Evan! good evening fellow listeners!!!

Hi efd & all friends! Can't listen at the moment :-( but am here in spirit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 9:11pm fleep:

Yes, there are Taxman licks in there for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/15/15 9:12pm Stevel:

This was the second image to come up after "Jim Dandy cannon creem". Close, but no cigar.

Civil War canon is probably different from cannon)

This Jackie Robinson record was a gift from the wonderful Andy Zax when he was here guest DJ-ing on my show last fall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/15/15 9:21pm Stevel:

Nice story. On many levels.

Nice gift!

Andy Zax is a mensch.

Greetings JakeGould: Speaking of mensch, I finally saw Super Mensch last night on NFlix. Loved efd's interview with Mike Meyers and had looked forward to seeing the film. Amazing story(ies)!

Checking in to the playlist to confirm that someone else thought that was Morgan Freeman reading that Jackie Robinson story. Shocked to see I am alone on this...

Hi Evan,
I'm wondering if the Steve Waxman in Even Worse is the same guy who teaches music history at Smith. Any idea about that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 9:27pm efd:

Rosko was my generation's Morgan Freeman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 9:28pm efd:

Mildred, no, I don't think so -- the Even Worse Steve Waxman lives in Toronto.
  Wed. 4/15/15 9:30pm Mildred:

Well, that would have been very weird and I feel somehow relieved.

after hearing this, I wonder how Tug's kid became a "country sanger"?
  Wed. 4/15/15 9:48pm MrMikeyRiggsNYC:

How bout Jon Sterling's oratory of Steven Drew's Grand Slam the other night. Sterling exclaims, "Steven Drew, how do you do."

Hey EFD :) Hey Everyone :) Nice to hear the Jackie Robinson recording :) Thx to AZ indeed :)

Only thing that would've made that Tug McGraw thing better would be if Rick Wakeman were on it

previously you had you first april fool's show so it makes sense :)

Rosko can be heard in a stunning interpretation of a Pete Hammil NY Post article on the Vietnam war.

efd i'm sad for those losses in your life. i do remember Loscalzo, vaguely. i have lots of tapes of fmu from back then...but i don't know if i have any of him.it was a tumultuous time in my life.

...and Thanks especially for that Jackie Robinson story.
-wasn't Rosco on wbai for a while?

efd: You presented a tribute that shared these folks with us. That's always worth while. All we really have is our connections to others. It sucks when they go away. Its good to share their works with others. Thanks

Now that taxes are done, I have time for some typing. First of all, sympathies, Evan, for the loss of your friends. Second, there's an international friendly soccer match on TV from the Alamodome tonight. Thirdsies, what a show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 10:52pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Ah, City Gardens, where you knew the show was over because of course, before the band was off the stage, the bright whites came up and a line of obese security goons would advance toward the crowd, bellowing, "Shows over, get out."

Hey, this sounds like that other AC/DC song!

Love the chorus hook. I'll look up Sharp Medicine.
Avatar Wed. 4/15/15 11:00pm Aharon:

Hah! I'll assuming you're talking about the gents from Down Under and not certain listeners' annual ritual of finishing their taxes at 10:45 on April 15th.

Whoa! You mean we can finally find out what Dave Grohl’s opinion on music is?
  Wed. 4/15/15 11:24pm P-90:

What, no Harry Harrison impression this week :(
Oh well, life isn't perfect. And I don't know how many years went by when I thought that efd had recorded the falsetto word "ticket", before I realized he was performing it live each week.

Would love those wedneday tix. But I'm trapped in a hotel room in Puerto Rico at the moment with a sleeping roommate and can't make any calls ;/
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:26pm Ike:

What sites or apps does everyone use to keep up with upcoming shows in NYC? Is there something better than Brooklyn Vegan? I sure hope so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:28pm JakeGould:

@Ike: I just use Facebook and follow venues and bands. All the sites I have checked out stink or are out of date.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:30pm Ike:

Actually, wait... nyc-shows.brooklynvegan.com isn't so bad. I was looking on the wrong part of the site.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:35pm JakeGould:

Is this “Hot Chocolate” for the U.S. versus Mexico soccer action?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:37pm efd:

@P-90, the Harry Harrison-inspired intro was based on the adopted naming rights during the 2014 marathon,which lapsed this year. So it's back to the old original intro.

EFD! Great show as always--Cheers!

But wait--your bed music must be right next to Rhinocerous Bucket?

hahaha, it probably is! Glad you're enjoying the show Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:41pm efd:

@JakeGould, I'll leave it to the listener to make that call.
  Wed. 4/15/15 11:44pm P-90:

Oh, THAT's where Harry went... You used a little pitch shifting on that, or just eq?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:46pm JakeGould:

@efd: Then I assume, “Shoot You Down” has nothing to do with the postal worker landing a gyrocopter on the Capitol lawn. For the record, I admire that coot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/15/15 11:50pm efd:

that is a reasonable assumption.
