Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Listener comments!

  Mon. 5/5/08 11:14pm Sybil:

Good evening!

The bats, they have awakened, I do believe!

I'm pulling an all-nighter tonight to catch up for tomorrow, and I'm the f'ing teacher. :( Glad you're on to keep my spirits up.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:16pm efd:

way to go, speccy!
Sybil, yes, thank goodness! 4 in a row now, right? or more?
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:16pm E.L.:

I guess everyone's too exhausted from Mayday Mayhem to post.

Who on Earth are the Talking Heads? Are they a David Byrne side project?

  Mon. 5/5/08 11:16pm E.L.:

Beaten by EFD!
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:17pm efd:

efd fans will not be silenced!
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:17pm Laurie:

Happy Cinco de Drinko.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:18pm Sybil:

4 in a row? Don't ask me, I can't count! (Guess what I teach...)
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:26pm E.L.:

Laurie: I have a demented thought that we should synchronize a tequila shot — virtual or otherwise. Any takers?
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:28pm Laurie:

I'll stick with Diet Coke with Lime.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:29pm Sybil:

I'll drink a virtual shot with you all!
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:29pm miss buxley:

efd----- whut up??? i'm back & more gorgeous than ever!!!!!!!!!!! so evan hows life been treatin you??? THIS IS ONE EFD FAN THAT WILL NEVER BE SILENCED!!!!! PEACE--LOVE--JOY & HAPPINESS!!!!!=)=)=)
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:31pm Laurie:

miss buxley is the same person as toni daytona, right?
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:34pm efd:

and then some!
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:35pm E.L.:

Always the class act, Laurie. Cheers.

For Sybil and everyone else let's say at the end of the first song in this set.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:43pm Joe:

Ev, you're rocking too hard. Some of us are trying to study.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:47pm Michael:

Count me among the studious--finishing my senior thesis tonight out here in Berkeley. Show is sounding good, EFD...
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:48pm Amanda:

I love those Ministry covers! (or, covers by Ministry.) Their "Radar Love" is above reproach. Have to get that album.

How was the shot? I have only Gato Negro here myself, but I did finish the glass kind of fast.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:51pm Laurie in Miami:

It means "System of sexual completion," or... orgasm? I guess.
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:51pm efd:

i had no idea my show was so popular with the study set!

i've got vitamin-fortified diet coke here in the studio myself...
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:52pm efd:

oh! well, ahem, that's not so bad then. thanks, Laurie!
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:53pm Laurie:

Is there a sexy robot on the cover of that Xyx album?
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:56pm efd:

there's not, just a black and white drawing with kind of a vine motif. But i think i see where you're going with that question...
  Mon. 5/5/08 11:56pm Sybil:

It's a well-documented fact that listening to EFD raises your IQ by an average of 17.56 points.
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:00am Listener David:

....but Roger is still from Supertramp...dont know if buying it there helps
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:00am Sybil:

sexy robots?

  Tue. 5/6/08 12:02am Sybil:

Virtual tequila is a lot better than real tequila IMO.

But I'd still rather have had the virtual Gato Negro. Wish I thought of it!
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:03am E.L.:

My internet flopped at the appointed time, Sybil. My emporer's new tequila shot will have to wait for next year.
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:04am efd:

David, you're lucky I found the single -- otherwise I surely would have played the album version one of these days, which is about 2 minutes longer
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:10am Amanda:

E.L., you mean it can't be enjoyed on your BIRTHDAY next week?

Yes, Gato is a wonderful resource for us underpaid teachers. But I don't think I could teach MATH with a red wine hangover... just creative writing!

I have a friend, Derek, who calls himself "Derek of the Edmund Fitzgerald."
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:22am efd:

damn, Amanda, good for you to remember E.L.'s birthday!

Derek of the Edmund Fitzgerald = hilarious.
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:23am E.L.:

Amanda, YOU pay attention and you make me laugh/giggle. People have told me of this Gato Negro. I'll have to seek it out on a non-school night.
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:34am Amanda:

So they don't have GN up in Providence? Of course, I imagine life is pretty affordable up there in general -- moonshine made from Dunkin Donuts flavored coffee, etc.

I know... I have to hip Derek to Laura Cantrell's version of that song. He'll likely giggle, himself.
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:46am slugluv1313:


break out thee APHRODITE'S CHILD!!!!!!!!!

yay Evan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:48am efd:

i wish an FMU DJ would do that Aphrodite's Child song for the marathon finale one year, I'd love to play drums on it!
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:50am slugluv1313:

omigosh who do you think should *do* that song?!?!?!?

should we be taking nominations?????????!!!!!?????
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:54am efd:

that question requires more attention than i can give it right now, but off the top of my head I'm thinking Chris Stubbs or Clay Pigeon.
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:57am Sybil:

Clay Pigeon... perfect!
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:58am Laurie from Miami:

Maybe the implication is that multiple Floridas are dying?
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:59am slugluv1313:

i was thinking of maybe FABIO?

and YES!!!!!!! Clay Pigeon would be awesome too!

but yeah, DEFINITELY requires deeper thought!!!!!!!
  Tue. 5/6/08 12:59am Sybil:

DYING, here!!!
  Tue. 5/6/08 1:00am C:

HAHAHA. Awesome!!
  Tue. 5/6/08 1:08am efd:


glad you guys enjoyed that!
  Tue. 5/6/08 1:14am Sybil:

chin chin!
  Tue. 5/6/08 1:53am Pete:


Good show tonight. Since we're both Sloan fans, it would be nice next week if you could play a track or two from the new Sloan record "Parallel Play" due out on Yep Roc on June 3
  Tue. 5/6/08 1:58am efd:

thanks Pete! i'm curious to check that album out myself, but i haven't seen it here at the station yet. maybe next week.

Thanks everyone for listening and for your comments!
  Tue. 5/6/08 2:01am Pete:


They have the whole record that you can stream over at Yep Rec if you're curious.
