Hey P&R, don't wonder, you're here you have all your five fingers and toes and you're able to wonder and you outlived your dad you're batting a thousand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm listener 126464:

I read somewhere that the keyboards in Pretend and the album were added afterward without Richard knowing and he was not happy.
  9:04pm John from Florham park:

@Chofgie all seriousness sorry I called your dad a jerk
  9:05pm choggie:

you don't get to choose your parents, but you have free will to abuse your parents as they abused you.... in all those passive-aggressive ways

Richard B was one of the best interviews I did in my nine years at Time Out, a truly generous artist and great storyteller. Good feature EFD!
  9:11pm Steve:

Yeah, more 'Numbers With Wings' e.p. tunes ! My fave ! I love it.
  9:12pm Eddy in Australia:

@Ken: All good in my part of the world (sunny, mild) but the torrential rain up north extinguished most of the bushfires - now there's flooding!
  9:12pm choggie:

Whoa, Bongos comeback 2020 tour...1 show a month, like that pace

I'd adopt a koala bear if I had a eucalyptus Orchard and some handling gloves
  9:15pm John from Florham park:

@Eddy then too but I meant triple j too
  9:16pm choggie:

... but never a breeding pair
  9:17pm choggie:

A little Marc Bolan coming at ya.
  9:21pm CC:

Hi Evan and all..!.. do you have a theme to your show tonight or is everything being played off the cuff???
Avatar 9:21pm Dr. Goot:

Yes, haven't heard that Bongos cover before, nice!
  9:22pm Steve:

The Zantees sound a lot like The Cramps
  9:22pm John from Florham park:

@Choggue step away from the radio
  9:23pm John from Florham park:

I mean choogie sorry

Steve, Miriam Linna drummed for both those bands
Avatar 9:24pm Dr. Goot:

@CC - 'Evan "Funk" Davies is excited to welcome every ding-dong Bongo to the WFMU studios on Wednesday night, February 12. What will happen? Who can say, but you can expect some stories, memories, maybe an "unplugged" song or two, and some info on the band's upcoming show at Outpost In The Burbs in Montclair on Friday, March 20. (They're also playing at the Earl in Atlanta on Feb 21 with Pylon Reenactment Society.) Make sure you're listening to WFMU at 9pm on Wednesday night February 12!'
  9:28pm Steve:

I didn't that about Miriam and The Zantees, L126464 but I did with the early Cramps
  9:28pm CC:

I love bongos!!!
  9:30pm CC:

I used to have a pair that I bought in Tijuana Mexico but I hit them too hard and broke a hole in them!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm listener 126464:

Recall seeing Miriam playing a kids drum set with Zantees
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Quasi Mojo:

I believe I saw the Zantees at the Loeb Student Center show at NYU with Nervus Rex. I might be mistaken.
  9:36pm CC:

I like those Bongo type drums in the Chuck Mangione song self-portrait...

Wild Moose Party!
  9:40pm CC:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm listener 126464:

It always smelled like coffee around there
  9:42pm CC:

yep... right next to Paramus and Ridgewood!!!
  9:46pm CC:

in between the two minutes songs you got to talk and tell people something interesting?!?
  9:47pm Mike Wolf:

@javakid I was there 2000–08, Broadway then 10th Ave
  9:50pm johnzo:

I wonder if they knew Daniel Pinkwater
  9:50pm CC:

Lounge acts can make a lot of money if they just want to go out on the road!!!
Avatar 9:51pm javakid:

I was there just before you on Broadway 98-99. Layed out the magazine. My right hand Tom O. took my spot. Did the anniversary trip to the UK while there.

efd, make certain you're not fooled by the false ending on "Hunting"!

And...you weren't!

I would have been if Richard hadn't said "Wait!!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm adampsyche:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm adampsyche:

going to sleep but am bookmarking this thread
  10:05pm CC:

I don't want to be off topic but does anyone know how long WFMU is been on the air???
  10:05pm Mike Wolf:

@javakid I just missed out on that trip, but I was there for the freakishly ostentatious 5th bday for NY at the end of 2000 (which the UK staff was flown over for...man, no idea how things went so wrong for that company).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm adampsyche:

CC: a long time ;)

I'm usually good at bookmarking but alas

Do more than one or two of the guys switch off on Bongos or not???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Craig in MoTown:

Great interview. Can't wait to see the guys in Montclair!
  10:14pm Mike Wolf:

@EFD i hate to be that guy but here i am so, just one L in “Bulrushes”
  10:14pm Steve:

EFD, can you ask The Bongos if they will be recording an all new album and will they reissue Richard & James' 'Nuts & Bolts" 1983 album on CD ?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Quasi Mojo:

That live In the Congo was really great
  10:18pm dennis:

Crazy ! just tuned in but earlier today played my Bulrushes/Auto Door 7" that stands the pop test of time.
  10:18pm Giannp1:

Can you ask the band if they will be playing in Hoboken anytime soon?
  10:20pm CC:

sometimes you can play all your tom-toms with your hands and they kind of sound like bongos!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm listener 126464:

at the street fair
  10:22pm Giannp1:

What are the relationships? Are the guys single or married?
  10:24pm CC:

I hope you all are going to play a song with bongos?!?
  10:27pm CC:

  10:43pm antonio:

It’s OK!!!
  10:43pm CC:

I was really hoping to hear some great bongo drums!!!
  10:51pm CC:

the only way to get a great sound on Bongos... you got a mic em...in analogue!!!
  10:56pm CC:

like John Lennon said you got to take it on the road!!!
  10:59pm CC:

when you are as old as Mick Jagger you got to be on the road every day in order to maintain that lifestyle!!!!
  11:02pm CC:

the trick is to be like Jimmy Hall and don't live beyond your means!!!
  11:04pm CC:

Donovan is so intelligent!!!

Thanks Evan and The Bongos!
  11:06pm Steve:

Great radio show, Bongos & EFD ! Thank you !
  11:09pm CC:

  11:13pm CC:

  11:18pm CC:

I don't know if something traditional sounds corny or not?!?
  11:32pm CC:
