Every show starts with a cut from the ‘70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: I’m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

Upcoming events:

Wednesday, October 8th, 9pm - Midnight: Mayhem In The PM: The Mayhemming
Scads of great power-pop, punk, post-punk and new wave records came out from 1978 through 1982, and EFD will be playing some of his favorites on tonight's show! Some of them are probably YOUR favorites too; others will become new faves instantly. It's always one of the most anticipated shows of the year, so make sure you don't miss it! Tune in to WFMU Wednesday October 8th at 9pm.

Wednesday, October 15th, 9pm - Midnight: AM Gold Throwdown, with special guest Clay Pigeon!
The Great Power Pop Throwdown between EFD and Clay Pigeon is still being talked about (and listened to) around the world. Now these two titans of the turntables meet again in an exciting rematch, albeit with more soothing music. And if you think that this show is only going to include Top 40 hits, think again! AM Gold is a state of mind, man, not a chart position. Tune in Wednesday October 16th at 9pm to hear whose gold is greater!

Wednesday, October 22nd, 9pm - Midnight: Lloyd Cole
30 years to the month after the release of Rattlesnakes English-by-way-of-Western-Massachusetts singer/songwriter Lloyd Cole stops by WFMU to play some songs, talk about his latest album, and even take part in Singles Going Steady Week! That new album, Standards (Omnivore), comes out in the USA this month; it is, as Lloyd himself says, "a rock record" made up of 10 original tunes and one cover. Lloyd Cole will appear on WFMU at 9pm on Wednesday night, Oct. 22, just ahead of his solo acoustic performance at City Winery in NYC on Thursday, Oct. 23. Be sure to tune in!

Wednesday, October 29th, 9pm - Midnight: Ultimate Painting
Ultimate Painting is a new band started by James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Jack Cooper of Mazes. After their bands toured together the two began exchanging demos and getting together for casual jam sessions. That led to some dates opening for Parquet Courts followed by a single release in August and a full-length album, due out at the end of the month on the Trouble In Mind label. The songs have a quiet guitar-driven feel reminiscent of the Velvet Underground or later-period Wire. They're playing at Cake Shop on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 25; if you miss that show you can catch them live on WFMU at 9pm on Wednesday, Oct. 29.
