Cannot wait for the steve adamyk live set!

Strong outta the gates! Just what I needed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Philthy woman:

Thanks for this Bowie choice too- perfect. I've had 'Afraid of American' in my head , the song and the weird vdo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Philthy woman:

*I'm afraid of Americans
  9:08pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Did anybody else have the 8-track of this album? Cuz I remember exactly where this song faded out and back in when it switched tracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm efd:

Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in tonight! Live set from Steve Adamyk Band coming up around the bottom of the hour, and then Sonic Avenues probably a little past 10. Stick around!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm chris_in_space:

Hey Funkadav-ites. Today was weird and dark. Happy to be here with you all now.
  9:11pm JakeGould:

Might I use this playlist to say that other than the Cubs winning the World Series, 2016 is an utterly shit year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Well Jake, don't forget Dylan winning the Nobel Lit Prize
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Philthy woman:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Alex of Chicago:

agreed, jake
  9:13pm JakeGould:

@Aaron: Yeah, forgot about that because you know what… Yeah, I forgot about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Cooh John:

I guess you are not a Cavs fan, JakeGould.
  9:16pm JakeGould:

Nah, more into thighs myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Fuzzy:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Cooh John:

I guess most of the electorate are derriere fans.
  9:21pm JakeGould:

You know what’s crazy? And I mean this in all seriousness: No matter how horrible Trump is, Richard Nixon will ALWAYS be the caricature of a “bad” President. Let that sink in.
Avatar 9:21pm Scraps deSelby:

I haven't listened to Forever Now since it came out, mostly because I thought in inferior to the first two Psychedelic Furs albums. But that song was excellent. Maybe I should listen to it again....
  9:21pm V Priceless:

Hey efd! Cool Jam cut!
Avatar 9:22pm Scraps:

ah, a good kinda obscure Jam song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Fuzzy:

Nixon-Bush2-Trump: the Anti-Rushmore.
  9:22pm V Priceless:

Oh. I missed some other gems, I see
  9:24pm Larry:

Thanks for the great tunes! I remember the 70s also!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Alex of Chicago:

i'd like to think that, but trump will have all branches for 2 years. and now i'll shut up
  9:24pm JakeGould:

Nixon was fairly reasonable compared to the Bushes. And was a saint compared to Trump.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Figgsrock:

Oh yeah, had this Ted song in my head today.
  9:29pm Rory:

We are entering a very VERY dark time. I wish everybody well for the rest of this year and beyond. Thanks for the tunes efd!
Avatar 9:30pm shpilkis:

Bill Withers version might be better than the Beatles? Is that nuts?
Avatar 9:30pm Scraps:

Nixon was middle of the road compared to recent Republicans.

I'm poor and disabled, and dependent 100% on the government. yeah, i'm frightened.
Avatar 9:30pm Scraps:

love Bill Withers.
Avatar 9:37pm shpilkis:

Bill Withers is seriously the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Cubicle Carl:

There was a good little documentary about working at Columbia House that came out in the early 2000s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm efd:

yep. The Target Shoots First. Just before my time there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Cubicle Carl:

Yes, that was it. Captured the era. All gone now.
  9:42pm JakeGould:

I get so wistful when I see those Columbia House cassette tapes with the pink lines on the spine.
Avatar 9:49pm Andrew S:

Dialed up my favourite radio show for the first time in months due to whatever, and what do I hear but a set from a band from my hometown. Thats pretty sweet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Cubicle Carl:

I think all those record clubs (all two of them) manufactured their own products out of slightly inferior materials. Kinda like a legal bootleg outfit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm efd:

nice! Welcome Andrew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Cubicle Carl:

Pretty happening set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

And there's more where this came from!
  9:55pm JakeGould:

This “Die Dead Forever” is killing it!
  9:55pm johnk77:

i am hopeful that despite the current
political shitstem
we could be entering a fruitful period
for rock and other rebel music
for example 1967->1970
see gimme danger

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm chris_in_space:

Steve Adamyk band rocked.
Avatar 10:02pm Scraps:

The Allies!! Jeez. As a Seattle native, that's obscure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm efd:

@Scraps I mainly picked it up because they had a song that referenced Emma Peel! Hadn't heard of them before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm chris_in_space:

I don't know about 4.5 hrs from Toronto to Ottawa though. That's more of a 5-6 hr drive. Toronto traffic is thick as dirt.
Avatar 10:05pm Scraps:

i was just going to say that if anyone remembers them it was for "Emma Peel"!
Avatar 10:07pm Scraps:

like 1980 or so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm efd:

yep, that sounds about right. I played it on my show a month or so back I think - not a bad tune!
Avatar 10:11pm Andrew S:

its easily 4.5 hours, just depends on where you are going in TO when you get there and the time of day cuz yeah, the traffic in Toronto is ridiculous
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Chop Scott:

EFD--You always feed and make me feel good--thank you!
  10:14pm JakeGould:

Holy crap, this “Born on the Bayou” is so good. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm efd:

thanks Chop Scott, I appreciate that! And thanks to everyone listening, commenting, and/or lurking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm coelacanth:

hi efd and funkettes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Chop Scott:

Sounds fantastic- engineer Matt!!!
  10:22pm Alex of Chicago:

very good sound from o'er here
  10:22pm Stevel:

In late but committed! Live set sounds great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Chop Scott:

Seriously hard to make Studio B sound this fucking live and good. Again--Cheers Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm efd:

thanks guys! Yeah, Matt with the double-duty engineering like the trooper he is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm efd:

I should run downstairs and tell him how much y'all are enjoying his work! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Jeezy:

  10:32pm P-90:

Sonic Avenues sounding A+, even lifting my crushed spirits. A little.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm efd:

that's the idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Chop Scott:

EFD--yes, wanted to make the Above and Long Riders show in Monty Hall but had to be in the nest tonight.
  10:36pm Stevel:

Seriously kicking ass!
  10:49pm P-90:

You got it: catch 'em when they've been out on tour and are on a roll.
  10:52pm P-90:

And special thanks to Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm efd:

yes indeed!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm coelacanth:

i really liked that savoy motel track as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm coelacanth:

hi melinda
  10:59pm Carmichael:

Just now had the courage to view comments. Jake, I just said today that I survived Nixon and I can survive Trump. But it will be 4 long years before we can assess.
  11:00pm Carmichael:

And FMU is my port in EVERY storm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Nixon @ least was highly competent (in his psychoneurotic, mean paranoid way) & had served office already.
- Thx efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm melinda:

Really dug the blue orchids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Kat in Chicago:

Hi Funk fans and EFD. Checking in late after marching downtown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Kat in Chicago:

Just in time to hear Evan say "Le Poisson Rouge" which is one of my favorite things
  11:13pm Carmichael:

Thank you, tolerant music fans. I will bitch and moan no more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm melinda:

@Kat: how was it marching? I saw footage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm coelacanth:

nixon was nowhere near as abominable a creature as the bush empire, and everyone in it. though i've despised donald dump for decades, i've never thought he was as bad as bush either - in terms of being fundamentally selfish and disrespectful of any & everybody who may not be serving their particular power machine.
dump is a reckless, impulsive child - and i think somewhat insane; which accounts for the offensive things he says, more than him actually believing them.
...but for that reason i think he's likely to cause at least as much damage as the bushes, reagan or nixon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm Kat in Chicago:

I think some folks are still out there. Several different groups, shutting down various parts of downtown and Mag Mile area. Vibes were good, police not aggressive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Kat in Chicago:

I haven't heard of any arrests so far.
  11:20pm Carmichael:

We have time to chill. The music, especially Evan's, will help us through our angst. Ohhhhmmmm .....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm melinda:

@coelecanth: I generally don't like armchair psychiatric diagnostics but there seems to be some consensus that Trump has a narcissistic personality disorder, and yeah, that could do a lot of damage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm melinda:

I like the dancey Belle & Sebastian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Kat in Chicago:

@melinda I was married for several years to someone with NPD and that is some toxic shit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm melinda:

@Kat: I've been hearing the same thing from people with similar experiences. And that's on top of the aforementioned impulsivity, and no attention span, lack of qualifications...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Chop Scott:

I cannot believe that I misspelled the Long Ryders earlier post--but I did!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm efd:

I just chalked it up to auto-correct!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Chop Scott:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm coelacanth:

@11:24 -yeah it's pretty obvious he's narcissistic.
the possible silver lining here is that he's already been elected president, and that was/is probably the main thing.
i wouldn't doubt it if he's already losing interest!
...and his rhetoric i think - to some degree anyway - was all for attention...to get folks excited; to make his name a daily part of conversation. (it's often said even negative attention is still attention)... and to appeal to the selfish, insane asshole side that lurks inside so many shallow dipshits in this country - & mostly just that...but part of a strategy.
...anyway, i'm hoping.
