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.

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

Hey Evan! Honest to gosh, there are few things in this world better than a couple Japanese women who can't really speak English singing "I thought the major was a lady suffragette."
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:09pm @BunnyKickButt:

Hello? tap tap Is this working?
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:12pm the ohio express!!!!:

  Tue. 9/22/09 11:20pm disgruntled parrot store customer:

  Tue. 9/22/09 11:20pm jhn:

  Tue. 9/22/09 11:21pm Amanda:

Peter Cook kills me every time. Nice one. (And still reeling from the Shonen Knife!)
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:26pm Laurie:

  Tue. 9/22/09 11:37pm efd:

12 tracks, yes.

  Tue. 9/22/09 11:38pm G:

the funky dozen.
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:42pm Laurie:

efd, only one person voted for 12.
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:43pm Michael from the Left Coast:

sounds like an Elvis Costello demo
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:45pm efd:

Laurie, no track had more than one vote so I just picked one from the numbers that were mentioned.
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:55pm Michael from the Left Coast:

No need to Wiki
Happenings are from Jersey
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:56pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Is Wet Dog a new release?
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:58pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Friends!

(For the record I woulda picked 6)
  Tue. 9/22/09 11:59pm efd:

Michael, yes, Wet Dog is new. We have a disc that includes the tracks from the album as well as some live/bonus material.

Greetings, Danne!
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:00am Danne D:

your absence was greatly felt this weekend, efd!
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:04am Amanda:

Hear, hear! I have to head to bed early tonight. Have a great rest of show and happy Harry Harrison's birthday to all who observe. You know who you are.
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:04am brendan:

Awesome. The Ettes rule. They rule even harder with Greg Cartwright.
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:05am Danne D:

G'night Amanda :) Sweet and funky dreams to you :)
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:06am efd:

thanks Danne, and thanks and goodnight Amanda! From the pics I saw it looks like the cruise was a blast, but I had a great time in Baltimore so I'd say it was a win-win!
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:08am Michael from the Left Coast:

Wow--I never realized how much Ira Kaplan can sound like Robert Plant
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:11am chuck in ct:

hi evan----------good evening --
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:21am Danne D:

mmmmmm flesh
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:28am Danne D:

11) The Bill Leefds (efd) 73.0
12) Frozen Dopes 56.0
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:30am Joe:

I am making a quick appearance to state that I very much like the new Vivian Girls CD. And to call all the people complaining about it "hipster douchebags". That is all.
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:32am Joshua K:

This music is allowing me to rock out at the office all night!! Party time in a cubicle.
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:33am john:

Thanks for the sixth place props, Danne, and good luck in the last couple weeks of the season! If only my first half had been anything like the second...
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:34am Primitive Sound System:

Wow! just tuned in and looked at the playlist. I am pulling records for tomorrow night on $mall ¢hanges show and I literally was holding the Oohio Express - "Roll It Up" in my hand. CRAZY! Love that song.
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:36am Danne D:

The props are well earned john - it's been fun to watch your team make its climb. I think Aharon's going to make the magic 150 transaction mark by the end of the year :o)
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:40am osvi:

Evan, thanks for the TV Ghost, wish I could fly out to see them and Pissed Jeans. What a show!
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:43am john:

It's all about Ubaldo Jimenez. I was actually hoping Aharon would manage to score every single major leaguer on his team for at least one game. Aharon, if you're there, you're more than welcome to Johan Santana (for whom I traded Mark Reynolds about a week before Johan went down for the season).
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:45am Danne D:

lol, john. I might have to look back through the transactions and see if he's had at least one guy from every major league team - that would be quite an accomplishment in and of itself :)
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:54am efd:

osvi, glad I could bring some of the WFMU Fest to you!
PSS, love when those coincidences happen - very WFMUish!
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:57am john:

  Wed. 9/23/09 12:58am A:

The German=24 hours
Didn't quite hear what the 2nd phrase was, but I think it might have been "The knowledge of ladies"
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:58am Danne D:

couldn't help myself. Based on my ersatz counting, Aharon (babybunting) has had at least one player from 29 of the 30 major league teams (only Tampa Bay is missing). He's had a position player from every team but Tampa Bay and Houston and a pitcher from 23 different teams (missing Mets, Wash, SF, Col, TB, Balt, Sea). Here's everyone he's had this year in it's epic glory:
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:59am john:

Wisdom grows on trees (I think).
  Wed. 9/23/09 12:59am A:

Oh wait, that's not it at all. It's actually "knowledge grows on trees." Sheesh.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:06am efd:

Danne, thanks for the baseball update - I have to admit that I haven't checked in for a couple of weeks, once it became obvious that I was consigned to 11th place. I need to go back and check my draft picks to see where I went wrong (although I think I had a disproportionate number of busts - Jimmy Rollins [in the first half] and Chipper Jones come to mind, for starters).
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:07am efd:

thanks A and John for the translation help!
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:07am A:

John--the sheesh was for me and my ears, not for you and your translation.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:08am A:

And EFD, thank you for Jimmy Rollins.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:09am A:

Hey Danne (et al.) was just scrolling up through the comments, and let me assure you: the season ain't over yet! Pat Burrell here I come.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:09am efd:

ohhhh, it's *you!*
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:09am john:

A--no harm no foul (I assumed it wasn't). Danne--awesome research! EFD--would you care to pick up Johan on waivers?
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:15am A:

Danne (if you're still on): you are the Bill James of late night. And someone on here is for certain the Rick James.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:16am Danne D:

Yeah the Team Log section is neat that way.
And hey A - didn't realize you were the famous Aharon :)

Btw, to further highlight A's accomplishment I have used position players from a meager 19 teams and pitchers from only 14.

Aharon's made 137 moves. John and efd are tied for second with 36.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:20am Danne D:

Carol sounded really excited to talk to Harry!
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:20am Danne D:

  Wed. 9/23/09 1:20am efd:

has anyone here ever heard of The Jones Boys before?! I haven't...
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:21am Danne D:

Jonesy's forefathers?
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:24am Danne D:

  Wed. 9/23/09 1:25am Danne D:

Looks like 1966, efd.

  Wed. 9/23/09 1:25am (the famous?) A:

"Can probably guarantee" is the best sell ever, Harry.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:28am Danne D:

Why the Jones Boys made me think of Steel Breeze is beyond me but this is one of the more pitiful fan sites I've seen: http://www.geocities.com/sdgaynor/

There's a message board message from '04 about a reunion which has like 7 replies to it. The funniest being the last one which is from this year plaintively asking if a reunion was still possible.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:30am Danne D:

Barr-ee Kays :D
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:32am Danne D:

Thanks for the league shout-out efd :)
It's been fun.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:37am Danne D:

Sleepy time for me. Have a great night everyone! Thanks for another fabulous show, Evan!
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:38am efd:

thanks Danne, goodnight!
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:57am gary:

loving the show e!!! from seoul, rok, thanks.

and special thanks for reigning sound.
  Wed. 9/23/09 1:58am Joe:

great closer & great show
  Wed. 9/30/09 8:58am calzone!:

Another stellar show EFD! FYI Ohio Express Mercy/Roll It Up was released on Buddah in 1969. A fabulous Kasenetz-Katz production!
