@Handy I believe you, I heard your name a LOT during the marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Handy Haversack:

There are so many people and groups that can use a hand right now -- and so much uncertainty. It's a hard time. Like @efd said, easing pressure on oneself and others is a good goal.

beans rice and corn are a good choice..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Handy Haversack:

Nice, @efd!!
  10:47pm steveL:

Thanks for the Control Top, efd! Not that you mind pulling it out.

They’re like a hardcore Primus, in all the best ways. I WILL SEE THEM!!

Aside- on my way to greenmarket job, I saw Roberta Bayley and her pug, right by the Astor Cube. We chatted briefly (she doesn't know me).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm efd:

hey Classy Craig, my pleasure! Great record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm efd:

@SteveL did not mind at all! Had to make a run for the library to grab it, well worth the trip!
  10:53pm steveL:

Aw. You’re a good one!
  10:56pm modern blaze:

hi everybody!
  10:57pm CC:

Luv ya!!!

Have no fear music fans! I am designing new concert swag for the band Survivor at this very moment. The "Eye Of The Tiger" band knows that we will be back! Just like Rocky!
  11:10pm Steve:

EFD, thank your for doing your show. It helps us all !
  11:10pm Matt S.:

What was the best record of the year? Control Top?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Phillippe Bastille:

Good night all. Thanks for coming in for us. Peace and good health, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm efd:

@Matt according to me, yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Handy Haversack:

Night, Phillippe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm efd:

'night Phillippe!
  11:14pm Matt S.:

Must be true! I'll check it out. Thank you!
  11:14pm steveL:

May or may not check in before midnight. It is a privilege to be connected here. Take care of yourselves. Times are weird and very stressful, but we can make it through. Peace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Handy Haversack:

Night, SteveL! Control Top or bust!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm efd:

best wishes to you and yours, SteveL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Kat in Chicago:

Evan, I keep forgetting to send you dancey recs, but one comes to mind. Check D. Tiffany, esp a track from a couple of years ago called "How R U Plush" pacificrhythm.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Kat in Chicago:

I've also been enjoying some stuff from Brooklynites AceMo, MoMAReady, and DJ Swisha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Kat in Chicago:

Was maybe going to see LadyMonix for myself in Detroit in May but that event is likely to be canceled
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Aitch:

Very busy board tonight (not bored). Thanks for showing up EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm efd:

@Kat thanks for those! Will definitely give a listen. You're probably right about LadyMonix, sadly.
  Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Eddy in Australia:

Hey all. Just checking in to say stay safe and be well. Thanks to Evan for being there. We're in lockdown here, too, and all live shows cancelled so FMU proves yet again to be a saviour (memories of Sandy).
Avatar 11:45pm Mary Wing:

Thanks Kat, for alerting us to Bandcamp Friday; I am looking through all my bookmarked pages right now! And Evan, I got a shout-out by post-marathon pledger Deidra, who said she discovered FMU though a Facebook post by Sherri, so please tell Sherri that she rocks in my opinion!
  Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: I've just caught this last set, which is right in my wheelhouse, and I recommend a similar band (check Bandcamp!) called Mr Wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm efd:

ah yes, I saw that comment too - I will let Sherri know! Thanks Mary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Kat in Chicago:

Hi Mary! Since I'm not doing my own radio show right now (I'm on Loyola's station and they just shut down) I was going to take a break on Bandcamp buys, but I'm definitely going to buy on Friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Kat in Chicago:

Also yay Sherri :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Kat in Chicago:

that's the one negative about Bandcamp IMO, their search is horrible. I just use a regular search engine and add "bandcamp" to the search terms
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Kat in Chicago:

Bless you and your colleagues for coming in, Evan. Hope you can continue to do so, but safety above all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Handy Haversack:

@efd, thanks for being there and doing that! So much appreciated.

Good night, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm mariano:

Hey all, been a couple of weeks, just got back from Australia. Been lurking all day because of jet lag. Great show, efd, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Handy Haversack:

@MARIANO! I was wondering!

The good news: Nothing has happened in the last two weeks!

Welcome back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm efd:

thanks all for the kind comments and well wishes. Stay safe everyone.
  11:57pm KWilde:

You Rock EFD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm mariano:

Hey Handy, good to see you! Catch you at the next show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Handy Haversack:

Sounds good. Will catch up tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm mariano:

Ah, ok - have a good night then!
