Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from August 21, 2007 Options

efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Listener comments!

  Wed. 8/22/07 12:05am white castle fries:

Great show tonight, I would like to make some more running comments but I am doing homework.

Stumped by Steel on All Music unless they are listed under 80s.

Did you know that Michael Cera's character in Superbad (the cute one, not the tubby one) is also named Evan?

p.s. vampire weekend are a snooze. go back to Columbia. Rich Kids.
  Wed. 8/22/07 12:48am efd:

mmmm..... White Castle!
  Wed. 8/22/07 1:39am Tony B!:

I was watching the Giants blow their 1-0 ninth inning lead (against the Cubs) with the TV sound off and FMU rocking while Pink Reason's "By A Thread" was playing. And the Giants are no longer hanging by that, or any, thread tonight.
  Wed. 8/22/07 2:04am Jessica:

EitN is right up there next to "Reverb" on my Guilty Pleasures list.
  Wed. 8/22/07 2:56am efd:

Nice to see the West Coast contingent checking in!
Tony: I heard about that Cubs comeback on my way home -- 5 runs in the top of the 9th = brutal.
Jessica -- thanks for the comment on Evans in the News! Around 1:30 I realized I'd completely forgotten about it, and didn't want to try to squeeze it in so I decided to let it go for this week. But look for a triumphant EitN return next Tuesday night!
