Later nexties. Missing Patti Smith is not a great omen.
  9:06pm ?:

needle is off the record
  9:06pm JakeGould:

Yeah, right when I gloated 91.1FM went off the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm steveo:

so the transmitter is doing this crashing thing at the top of each show?
  9:07pm JakeGould:

It’s hot in NJ/NY so the transmitter is taking a schvitz.
  9:08pm herb.nyc:

91.9 is pretty fuzzy here in lower Manhattan (that's normal for me, I think ). Glug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Stevel:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm efd:

yeah we've been having transmitter issues due to the heat. Streams are fine though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm steveo:

i put on the internet stream now, that's what fixed it for becky's show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm myron feld:

This Gary Valentine single is a very well-spent 69¢.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm steveo:

yep that did it
  9:12pm ?:

but it's not the same as switching over to you as soon as KCR becomes the home of the Columbia lions...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm medson:

Hey Evan and everyone.
  9:18pm P-90:

Go Lions!
  9:20pm JakeGould:

And here is “Mortality and the Man Who Fell to Earth”: partiallyexaminedlife.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Stevel:

This is great.
  9:46pm Laura L.:

So cool that Philip Shelley is Michael Shelley's brother; "Looks" has always been one of my favorites - a number one hit for sure!
  9:47pm JakeGould:

And they have a Bandcamp as well. thestudentteachers.bandcamp.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Philthy woman:

great interview. Great stories to hear on so many levels. Thank you both so much. More to look forward to in the book and life!
Avatar 10:09pm poptone:

wonderful job Evan! were you aware that the Student Teachers were interviewed on the new afternoon show? was that you who did that interview?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Cooh John:

Dang! Missed the first part of the Laura Davis-Chanin interview. Must catch it later. Thanks for the extra postings, JakeGould.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Stevel:

Nice interview. Pretty sure you just sold a book, Laura!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm medson:

That was a really good interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm efd:

Excellent, you'll like it Steve!

@poptone we talked about that WNYU interview earlier! I'm pretty sure it wasn't me who interviewed them, but neither one of us was certain. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm efd:

thanks Medson!
Avatar 10:32pm poptone:

missed that part of the show! will listen to the archive. thanks again for having Laura on the show. well done!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Hi everyone! Nice tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm medson:

@efd I grabbed my swag today. Cant want to pop your premium in the car stereo tomorrow.
Avatar 10:40pm poptone:

have you ever heard this version of "Looks" by Mike Doughty? it works! www.youtube.com...
  10:41pm JakeGould:

The bit about her telling David Bowie she wanted to go to college and he was fully supportive? That is beautiful! Thanks for the interview, EFD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm chris_in_space:

@efd, you know how many interviews you've done on this program that have sent me off into directions that I otherwise would have spent "surfing the net", looking for something that doesn't exist? It's true! If you're nervous, it's probably because you care about what you're doing. Your interviews are great. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm loveless:

You were nervous during the interview? It certainly didn’t show. I plan on ordering the book and can’t wait to dig in. Thanks so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm efd:

thanks loveless & chris. Once it got going I didn't feel so nervous but I definitely was leading up to it, appreciate the comments. (and not fishing for more, either!)
Avatar 11:10pm Undead83:

Intense set ^^
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hiyo ... Is this Cindy Wilson of the B52s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm efd:

the very same!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm medson:

Thanks for supplying the sound track for another Wednesday Night Evan.
Time to say goodnight one and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm efd:

always my pleasure, medson!
  11:35pm Stevel:

Wimps are so damned good.
  11:38pm Chucktown Dan:

A little touch of Diana Cancer there .
  11:40pm Stevel:

Wimps tour looks intense. July 27-Aug 11, no break. Hard core.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm efd:

Don't let the band name fool you!
