Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from October 8, 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.

i grew up in the thriving metropolis of Martinsville, NJ and lived in New Brunswick while i went to Douglass (the women's college at Rutgers Univ.) . . . by around 1975/76, i was reading about this stuff in "Rock Scene" and Nancy Foster's "New Age" fanzine (anyone know where she is these days???) and send away for the records with the few dollars i had . . . first year at college, my room-mate was this sweet girl who was also a born-again Christian . . . and there i was hanging up stuff like the Teenage Suicide poster on my half of the dorm room's wall . . . fall of 1977, literally 30 years ago . . . yikes! BUT not like there was ready-made-pre-packaged "punk" back then . . .

  Tue. 10/9/07 12:00pm Jessica:

I can['t] has holiday, not in all my 25 years (I started young) of paid work*. But I can has cheeseburger. http://icanhascheezburger.com/. I'm freelance, now, so sneak my errands in when most folks are thinking about that second cup of corporate coffee; today's milieu was a little more regular-folks than normal, but they all looked like banker types. And their way-too-young mistresses. That's what I get for running errands in Piedmont.
*none of which was in bank or gov't employ.
  Tue. 10/9/07 12:01pm Jessica:

[cough] yesterday's [cough]
  Tue. 10/9/07 1:08pm Bill Kelly:

Yankees lose. @!#%&$#!! My second team, the Tribe, will be on the warpath!
  Wed. 10/10/07 2:45pm peter:

Thanks for the Stray Cats song. I use to love them so, embarassingly so. Do you have the live Rockats record there. I lost mine. If so please play. All those "Cats" bands inspired me to name my band in high school in the 80's the "Dan Katz" after our friend.
  Wed. 10/10/07 11:10pm efd:

@Jessica - Thanks for the link to icanhascheezburger.com -- I was trying to think of that site during my show, but totally blanked.
@Bill - Suddenly, I am no longer an Indians fan.
@Peter - I'm not sure if that Rockats record is in the station's library... isn't that the one that was rushed out something like a week or two after the show? I might actually have that in my own collection, I will take a look.

say hey, after combing through my old topps cards i figure that rick MONDAY's picture was taken for 1968, correct me if i'm wrong but didn't he stop some damn dirty hippies from burnin the american flag during a Monday twi night double header? ps. i'm hopin steinbrenner signs bob shepard for another 100 year contract, but kate smith's voice has got to go
  Sun. 10/14/07 4:46pm Dave McGurgan:

You played New Order at the wrong speed. No worries though, sounded just as good ... congrats on new time slot.
