What did the m stand for?
  9:10pm SeanG:

love this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm efd:

hey everyone, thanks for listening and commenting!

@Mailman Tom, I don't know what the M stood for - the main guy's name is Robin Scott, so that doesn't help.
Avatar 9:15pm herb.nyc:

Hi all. Niiiice start! Billy Bragg did a version of "when will..."; not bad but maybe for fans only.
  9:17pm cheri:

hello evan and everybody! now this is my kind of tunes! thanks efd
  9:19pm john:

All riiiiight!
  9:20pm john:

PS Hey Evan! Three hours of 70s 45s will break me out of self-imposed comments board isolation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

alright, hiiii john!
Avatar 9:22pm Listener Julian:

Hey Evan! Great show so far. Love that Saints song! Is that a saxophone?
  9:23pm john:

Pretty much a whole brass section, actually. Pissed off the punk purists. Which was, in and of itself, awesome.

Hey Julian! The next one's for you!
Avatar 9:25pm Listener Julian:

Can't wait!
Avatar 9:26pm Listener Julian:

Ha! Woo! Love it.
  9:28pm herb.nyc:

Play "evol radar love" by The Palindromes, plz (oops, that's an 80's song)
Avatar 9:33pm Listener Julian:

Brian Cadd looks like the offspring of Mick Fleetwood and Kenny Rogers.
  9:35pm cheri:

gotta love the 70s!
  9:35pm john:

There were rumours about those two...
Avatar 9:40pm JakeGould:

Oh seaside woman… What you can do to a man! Hubba hubba! Like bring me a beer.
  9:41pm john:

You just inflicted three whole minutes of Linda McCartney on the assembled multitudes. You owe us.
Avatar 9:42pm Jack Scheff:

yes!!! Rah Rah Rasputin!!!!
  9:43pm john:

That's fair. Boney M totally makes it all worthwhile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm efd:

I've got a pretty good sense of fair play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Tome:

records listening party yea !
Avatar 9:45pm Mailman Tom:

What does the m in boney m stand for?

Robin Scott.

Any and all band name questions are answered on some web site. www.bandnameexplained.com...
  9:52pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I can hear the crackle on some of these tracks, like on that Boozy track, and I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm efd:

hey Julie! Thank you very much for your generous pledge!
  9:57pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I hope I was able to nudge your needle up. Come all, all y'all efd listeners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm efd:

yeah, let's get going people! I think that thing has been sitting at 31% since I started the show. There's new t-shorts and other swag:
  10:00pm cheri:

thanks so much for these tunes, evan!
  10:04pm herb.nyc:

There was a Stillwater? That's band in "almost famous".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm efd:

yeah, I thought that was weird when I saw that movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm chris_in_space:

What up Funk-a-maniacs. Coming into the show an hour late tonight. Looks like the party is in full 45rpm swing.
  10:10pm Carmichael:

The almost famous band was no relation to the real Stillwater.

haha, hi there coel! And krissy b, and chris and everyone else!
  10:23pm herb.nyc:

No sh*t, Evan, I created a "Talking Heads, yes, 47cents" bet! Inspired by David Rees. Just before yr show began.
  10:28pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I think I heard 3 z's...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm efd:

That was a bonuz
  10:31pm Julie M Brooklyn:

You always give us more!

Why don't right wingers yell at Nachum, for being part of the Jewish controlled media? (We're laughing, yes?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Power Papi:

Are your jeans exploding or are you just glad to see me?
  10:33pm Carmichael:

There's an Aerosmith connection with Dirty Angels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm efd:

yes there is! And his name is David Hull.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'ma click a Jacksons track. Talent is talent.
Avatar 10:44pm JakeGould:

Yup. Alan Longmuir can be added to the list of sad post-fame stories. www.dailyrecord.co.uk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Being youngest sibling of five - original 'Quick Joey Small' 45 (The Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus - 1968) - was a primary 7" that was 'around'...A grim Bluesy tale for 'Bubblegum'...
Nice cover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm efd:

Darren Burn was just 9 years old when he recorded that record!
  10:56pm cheri:

does anyone else have the complete "SUPER HITS OF THE 70S" set besides me? evan I bet you do, right?
Avatar 10:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks efd dug the last hour, gotta jump!
  10:59pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Oh ho. I'm not ashamed to love Gerry Rafferty.

living for this Queen song right now!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@efd: ....9 ? ... Whut ?!?!
Avatar 11:02pm Roberto:

But not too late.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm efd:

I really need to play more Queen on a regular basis.
Avatar 11:03pm Roberto:

This was the theme song for my senior year college house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Queen - staggering band unfortunately corrupted by Top40 success.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Faye:

@efd so do I. I'm inspired.
  11:05pm john:

Finally, Nick Gilder. Two hours five minutes and I can finally exhale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Tome:

so much more to queen then top 40I think New Of the World and Jazz just 2 examples ... and way before that ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Only by WFMU have I heard that early Live Queen they just put out.
HolySmokes! Pheenomenal.
  11:13pm JakeGould:

Live Queen is great. But "Sheer Heart Attack" is my fave album.
  11:16pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I'm sorry, cuz I don't listen as often as I should, but I'm still hangin' on the comforting sound of the vinyl crackle. Is it me or is it a little bit like mac and cheese for the ears?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Tome:

Vinyl is something you can "sink your teeth into" it's just the way it feels and sounds too ! resilient ..
  11:34pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Sorry I joined late (World Series)--some of my favorites were played tonight, including the one now playing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm efd:

hey Michael! Thanks for checking in - I'd have been watching the game too if I were home.
  11:36pm cheri:

evan, I remember vinyl in my younger years, but that's about it then cds started to come out
  11:36pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Nothing like a little Michael Lee Smith to brighten the night (met him a few years ago--nice guy--can still sing well too)
  11:37pm cheri:

and now I must say goodnight
  11:38pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--you missed nothing in this game tonight (except about twenty conferences on the mound between Contreras and whoever was the Cubs pitcher at the time--often with no outs or with two outs and no one on base--I don't know what was going on there, unless the Cubs figured out that the Indians stole signs in game one)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Bootsie:

I was waiting for this! <3
  11:40pm phat:

sniff n the tears!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm chris_in_space:

This Jays man is shouting out to the Cubbies tonight and for the WS W
  11:41pm Julie M Brooklyn:

National League. NATIONAL LEAGUE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm ! I X SpooKey !:

  11:44pm Michael from the Left Coast:

outstanding! Sir Cliff's best record
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Bootsie:

Cliff Richard — another fave!
  11:48pm phat:

Jesus, this Rocky Burnettr
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm efd:

I hope you mean that in a good way! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm chris_in_space:

I haven't heard this Rocky Burnette tune since the end of the Carter administration. Serious.
  11:50pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Tired of Toein' the Line was a huge hit at the time, yet it got almost no play on radio after that
  11:56pm phat:

I remember it with fondness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm chris_in_space:

Sweet Chilliwack. @efd didn't you get a Chilliwack LP on your most recent trip to Vancouver?
  11:59pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Thanks for all the nice vinyl crackle, Evan.
