I just love little dogs they're so cute, does anyone agree?

gonna have to table that golden lab song for next year, pantz. "Whip It" is the traditional closing song of the salute to the dog show.

You didn't bring a lot of little plastic bags into the studio for cleanup tonight, EFD?

ha! Maybe I should have.

Sorry if I've posted this before, and I meant to post this on Dave Hill's show: Author Alex Shakar had this in a novel, "the savage girl ", paraphrased, "people get dogs to receive the love that their children never give them. People get cats to give the love that they can't show to their parents."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/15/17 9:54pm Uncle Michael:

A melancholy song built around a Fawlty Towers reference. That's good.
  Wed. 2/15/17 9:57pm cheri:

well efd I got to take my leave, but again that was a great dog set, thanks evan!

Would be even better if it it isn't an FT reference. Kismet.

Good evening. I hope Kimzilla cleaned up all the dog doo in the WFMU hallway. The bikini girls had a dog show earlier and one of them went rogue.

@quietlyartistic thanks, I found it listed as 1979 but either way later than I thought!

Looks like '79 is correct.

@UM he does, yes, not sure on which tracks. (probably says in the booklet which I didn't look at)

My feline residents have released their claw grip on me for playing that, so thanks. Funny that i'm hyper aware of the dog show, but isn't there a cat show sometime around now and I can never remember when?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/15/17 11:11pm efd:

one of the shows on earlier tonight mentioned there was a cat show next month, but not sure where or when exactly.
  Wed. 2/15/17 11:21pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Well, the one that's sitting on my lap right now is loving what's being played (even though we're back on a dog theme with Borzoi), and I'm feeling bad about rousting him, but it's beddy time for me and all cats in the house. Nice way to go. Thanks, efd!

Signing off the chat now but will listen in the car. Thanks for a great show EFD :) Until next time Funk Friends!

thanks for listening Danne and Julie!
Avatar Wed. 2/15/17 11:43pm Andrew S:

the cancon is so much sweeter when its played because you like it instead of because you have to. It's condescending to the artists when its played because it has to be. It also used to cause complications on indie radio stations where some shows were world music or whatever. The limitations were annoying but i dont think they apply to community radio anymore or if they do its ignored
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/15/17 11:54pm efd:

@Andrew it always did strike me as kind of a double-edged sword... I can understand not wanting the Canadian airwaves to be overrun with US artists but it's not always as simple as it seems.
Avatar Wed. 2/15/17 11:57pm Andrew S:

yep, you get it, it was a complicated issue and it had its purpose once upon a time. I think it has run its course now, though i havent listened to commercial radio in about 30 years so what do i know ;) Im always pleased by your inerest and knowledge of our humble doings up here though efd, you play more great canadian music than 99 percent of canadian radio stations do
Avatar    Sat. 2/18/17 12:30pm Amanda:

Hi efd! I'm enjoying catching up with this show today on the archive! Working dogs are indeed all large, I believe the Portuguese Water Dog is the smallest in the group. And please add my name to the list of Boston Terrier likers for this year's WKC show.
