Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from April 27, 2011 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'm Seeing The Baseball Project Saturday evening up in Ringwood :D

Btw, I believe Mike Mills is joining them for these shows along with the regular line-up.
  Wed. 4/27/11 10:55pm ehl:

ok. buckner's bolero has made my night. thank you.
  Wed. 4/27/11 10:56pm Danne D:

Speaking of Baseball - somehow my team has climbed up to 4th in the EFD HHDYDTY Fantasy Baseball League standings, though the top 2 teams are totally running away with things right now.
  Wed. 4/27/11 10:57pm efd:

and my team has been sinking like a stone! This is why I kept telling people not to think the first 3 weeks were going to define the season!
  Wed. 4/27/11 10:57pm efd:

(in regular baseball, too!)
  Wed. 4/27/11 10:58pm Danne D:

I just think you're playing possum, EFD :)
  Wed. 4/27/11 10:58pm Danne D:

Still can't believe I somehow got 10 saves this month. Seriously thought I'd still be on 0 right about now.
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:00pm Danne D:

(Speaking of which, Oliver is on trying to deliver the Jardineros their first save of the season)
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:02pm Curious:

I've always wondered if these Today's Army discs were distributed to radio stations for on-air play, or to potential recruits individually. Or both.
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:05pm efd:

I always assumed it was just to radio stations, but if some recruiter dropped 10 The "In" Sound LPs on me I might have been tempted to join up myself!
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:05pm Danne D:

couple of 'em on EBAY (Today's Army LPS)

  Wed. 4/27/11 11:06pm Danne D:

LOL Amanda :) That reminds me of a piece of Army recruiting mail I got when I was in High School:

"Free Army Tube Socks"
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:07pm Drill Sergeant:

Pants on the Ground, you worms!
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:08pm Danne D:

EFD: Here's a Harry Harrison In Sound on E-Bay in case you are missing it: http://cgi.ebay.com/US-Army-In-Sound-w-Harry-Harrison-1-1-1968-/220773819412?pt=Music_on_Vinyl&hash=item3367252414
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:12pm Danne D:

  Wed. 4/27/11 11:13pm Danne D:

Jai Alai stick even :)
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:13pm Drill Sergeant:

We are COOL. We are TODAY"S ARMY. Now drop and give me 40, you maggots!
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:15pm Drill Sergeant:

Don woulda been cuter sheathed in whipped cream, like a Herb Alpert cover.
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:16pm Danne D:

I like that you have 2 versions of the bubble bath theme :)
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:25pm Dave B:

W00T!
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:27pm efd:

way to go, Dave!

Danne, thanks for the link but I assure you that I am keenly aware of which "In" Sound LPs are available on eBay at any given moment.
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:29pm Ebay:

Let's just say that Evan's "Watch This Item" key has had to be replaced multiple times.
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:31pm efd:

And it's all of your best interests not to start bidding against me, I might add.
  Wed. 4/27/11 11:33pm dave:

  Wed. 4/27/11 11:34pm efd:

  Wed. 4/27/11 11:43pm Tornadoes:

  Wed. 4/27/11 11:43pm Dave B:

  Wed. 4/27/11 11:46pm randy in NC:
