Shabby Tiger! Favorite band name of the week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm efd:

dammit, this record didn't skip at all when I played it earlier
Avatar 9:05pm JakeGould:

@EFD: It was saving the skip for it’s very special moment on air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm efd:

stupid record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm efd:

And @Stevel, that's pretty much what I thought when I came across the Shabby Tiger record in the bins.
  9:08pm Alex von Chicago:

Song must be about David Cameron.
Avatar 9:10pm JakeGould:

@EFD: One of the first LPs I ever bought as a kid was the soundtrack to “The Empire Strikes Back” and—despite the fact I no longer own it—I still know exactly what cue and theme has that skip.
Avatar 9:12pm JakeGould:

I don’t know about the backing vocals in “Mainstreet U.S.A.”
Avatar 9:14pm Loretta:

hi all.....I've been on vacation ~ missed you guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Lori and the Chameleons!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hullo Loretta ! efdenizens...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Evan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

Welcome back Loretta, and welcome Bronwyn, RRN63, Alex, Barkevious, and all lurkers! Happy to have you all here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

Barkevious, I don't think Lori & The Chameleons was one of the records I pulled out to bring tonight, sorry to say. But I'll get to it!
Avatar 9:23pm JakeGould:

And I am happy to be here too. Sorry for my production snits at the beginning. Great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm efd:

I was in a snit myself over that skipping, so no worries!
Avatar 9:24pm JakeGould:

If Barkevious Shabazz is actually a cute bull terrier, all the better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Stevel:

Skipping snits. Also a great band name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm efd:

they could be on a bill with the Sniveling Shits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Stevel:

NOW you're onto something!
Avatar 9:31pm JakeGould:

As well as “Power Nap.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love London and Amsterdam! I miss them :(
Avatar 9:34pm Chris M.:

my life's goal is to one day borrow $15 from EFD
Avatar 9:38pm Loretta:

hi RR63!! ~ haven't seen you here in a while.. & Bark...hi there to you too! that's a cool name for a group ~ Lori & the Chameleons. or maybe it would be nice to will hear some Teenage Lust & the Lustettes!?!
  9:40pm sugarwolf:

I think you bought more records in one trip to London than I did living there for a year! Wow!
Avatar 9:43pm JakeGould:

@Chris M.: “my life's goal is to one day borrow $15 from EFD” If you say that in a hospital gown with an IV drip and sitting in a wheelchair, maybe that would work.
Avatar 9:46pm Erella:

I love this song. Wow. Someone should send it to an artist like Sam Smith. So great. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

@sugarwolf It's a bit of a sickness, I've come to discover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Barkevious Shabazz:

And a Sheet Music. Quite the haul!
  9:47pm herb.nyc:

So sweet, RIP Ken Lewis
  9:51pm Scott:

Hey what's the background music between sets? Always love it. Want it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm efd:

@herb and @Erella, glad you liked it. Honestly I feel honored to be able to play it.
Avatar 9:54pm Erella:

It is beautiful. Do let him know. Sorry Ken Lewis is dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

@Scott, it's a loop from "Saturday Night" by The Lordz Of Brooklyn, which itself samples "American Woman" by the Guess Who.
Avatar 9:56pm JakeGould:

@Scott: Here you go… www.youtube.com...

'65 - when no one knew Hendrix was alive (yet)...
  10:02pm Scott:

Sweet. Thanks Jake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm jmd:

@EFD, why did you play the Harpo song. I didn't like it, but I have no doubt it will be stuck in my head.
  10:03pm Scott:

And thanks for background Evan. Love the Guess Who .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

And Manicured Noise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm efd:

@jmd That's why I played it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm jmd:

Damn you to hell...thanks. DAMN YOU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Jeff from Rahway:

Jeezus, EFD, did you see the VIDEO for that dj kat song? youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm efd:

uh-oh... no I have not, Jeff! I'll have to check it out later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Was nice to hear Oldfield covering ABBA earlier
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm steve:

haha the dj kat cover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm steve:

ohh my god the video (muted of course)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm steve:

Avatar 10:16pm JakeGould:

The whole Discogs page for DJ Kat is the literal definition of “Amazeballs”: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 10:20pm JakeGould:

Jesus christ! That DJ Kat video is giving me very specific NYC music video flashbacks. Damn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm steve:

what would i do without wfmu
Avatar 10:25pm JakeGould:

@steve: There’s a big cartoon bubble over your head right now showing you in a nice, clean organized studio saying, “Wow! I finally got that done!”
Avatar 10:27pm JakeGould:

Ahhh! The Hemingers!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Stevel:

The Hemingers hale from just north of these parts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

This is one of the only good songs that ever comes up in my preprogrammed sets on my school's radio station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm exiledinbk:

I thought this song is called neighborhood watch
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm efd:

oh I think you're right! I didn't notice that the track list starts on the left side of the CD cover as opposed to the top of the CD cover. Thanks for the correction!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm efd:

Hey everyone! Just wanted to take a moment to let you know that it's "crunch time" here at WFMU - the time when we need a little extra help in the money department, but we don't interrupt our shows on the air like we do during the yearly fundraising marathon. If you can, please take a moment to make a pledge to my show via that white box at the top left of your browser, or by just clicking on this link:
We'll make it worth your while with cool new t-shirts and other swag. Plus great radio, of course. Thanks!
Avatar 11:23pm Erella:

Good reminder! Thank you.
Avatar 11:26pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :) Hi Funk Fans :)
Avatar 11:27pm Danne D:

Happy Hockey Season Everyone :)

(but still go Blue Jays!)
Avatar 11:27pm JakeGould:

What’s a hockey?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm efd:

uh oh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Don Rickles would know about hockey stuff. Ya hockey puck!
Avatar 11:30pm JakeGould:

Hey, the Islanders are now in Brooklyn… I might actually go to a game then.
Avatar 11:36pm Danne D:

:( Islanders are in the wrong place
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Jeff from Rahway:

For us hockey fans, the long, hot summer is almost at an end. Bring on the ice.
Avatar 11:36pm Danne D:

I will watching my Devils subtracting 30 years mentally as our record will be like the 1985 Devils
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Jeff from Rahway:

@Danne D does that mean Z-100 will do another parody song about how shitty the Devils are?
Avatar 11:41pm Danne D:

@Jeff :( I remember that song
Avatar 11:41pm Danne D:

but that was for the '83-84 Devils
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Jeff from Rahway:

@Danne D ah yes, another shitty product of Billy McMillan and Max McNab.
Avatar 11:44pm Danne D:

@Jeff the club was essentially expansion-level bu that predated them. Early groundwork being laid with the drafting of guys like Daneyko, MacLean, and Driver
Avatar 11:45pm Danne D:

The Devils have a wealth of good young defensemen now. They'll be good again before you know it. But this year - I think we probably get around 70 points. Hopefully I'm wrong and they get 25 more than that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Jeff from Rahway:

@Danne D, watching the team last year was like watching a bunch of old men skate through molasses. They got younger, I hope they can skate faster and oh...trade Travis Zajac please.
Avatar 11:52pm Danne D:

Zajac can only get traded to a team trying to make the salary floor. And I don't believe the rumors about Toronto from that hack Chere.

Let's see how he does with a new system though.
He'll lets see how they all do (though I'd be surprised if they have a single + player this year).

Cory will be busy.
Avatar 11:53pm Danne D:

Pulling for the Leafs as team #2 - excited to see what Lou will do there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Jeff from Rahway:

I wanna see how Lou is gonna handle the Toronto media.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Jeff from Rahway:

Oh and BTW, this Ultimate Painting song is excellent...they put on a fantastic show @ Rough Trade last month. Almost forgot about the music.
Avatar 11:58pm Danne D:

@Jeff he'll handle 'em fine :)

Anyway thanks for the usual greatness EFD :)
And have a good night everyone :)
Go Devils!!!
Go Blue Jays!!!
  11:39am Paul Johnston:

Catching up with the show in Dunfermline, Scotland. Wonderful tribute to Ken Lewis from John. Great to other other Carter-Lewis tracks too.
