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. 6/6/12 9:05pm miss cheri:

hey evan,,as always i'm really looking forward to a terriific show!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:06pm G:

When Danne D arrives, we'll know right off if the Devils have bought another game this season or not...
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:07pm miss cheri:

also i'm glad you're on the summer schedule!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:07pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hello Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:08pm SteveL:

Rocking hard at the outset. Working up to OBN IIIs it appears.
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:09pm efd:

Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in! Cheri, I'm glad I'm on the summer schedule too!

Greetings Richard, SteveL and G! I'm thinking if Danne DOESN'T show up that will be a bad sign.
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:09pm efd:

(for Devils fans)
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:11pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans!
End of 1!
GO DEVILS!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:11pm G:

Score?
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:12pm PB:

I picked up an import copy of the reissue of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless yesterday. It sounds amazing, infinitely better than the original CD release. Can't wait to check out the double CD EPs release tomorrow.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:12pm glenn:

they're toast. the kings are a better team, playing an all around better game.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:13pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Score=tied at 0 after one period (although Kings open with about a minute and a half of power play in the second period)
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:14pm glenn:

this holms song could easily be a tragically hip tune.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:15pm RMH:

Looking forward to the OBN III's set! Awesome band.
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:16pm efd:

coming up in about 15 minutes, RMH! You won't be disappointed.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:17pm Richard from Venezuela:

The records sounds killer.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:18pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & all! Won't be able to listen 'til 10ish, will I be able to hear OBN IIIs in real time?
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:18pm Mike East:

Yes! They sounded cool on Joe Belock's show! Three Chord Monte always a good way to preview upcoming live guests on the EFD Show.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:19pm Mike East:

er..not preview, but prehear, I guess.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:19pm miss cheri:

hiya danne & holly,,what's happening??
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:20pm efd:

Holly, you might catch the last song but that'll be about it I'm afraid! Archive for you.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:21pm Marmalade kitty:

paul collins wrote "hanging on the telephone".. cool stuff!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:22pm miss cheri:

evan you're THE BEST!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:25pm Holly in NC:

JT's 'So Alone' is a really super album.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:26pm JMD:

Dang! This rvivr is some thick soundin' vinyl!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:26pm john:

Hey Evan! What Holly said.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:26pm KevinBK:

Always a pleasure to hear a friends band thru the radio, thanks for playing rvivr!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:27pm miss cheri:

what's up holly??
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:27pm Roberto:

Tuff Darts! Niiiiiiiiice
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:28pm SteveL:

Tuff Darts: [ahem] EEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Perhaps I mentioned once that I heard their song "She's Dead" en-route to my prom, (on Denver radio no less.) My date, when told about it later in the evening, was unamused.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:29pm SteveL:

Let it roll!!!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:29pm JMD:

no, no, no! Let it go round once again!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:31pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Didn't the guy in the Tuff Darts have like superbad choppers?
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:31pm SteveL:

Nice. Best endgroove ever.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:38pm Dave B:

Hey! It's been a while. But don't think I ain't listenin
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:41pm Marmalade kitty:

It's 2:40am uk but I've been enticed.. efd!
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:42pm efd:

Excellent, Marmalade kitty! My work here is done.

Dave, I always assume you're out there! Thanks for checking in.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:43pm RMH:

Shout out to OBN IIIs drummer Matt Hammer, who was the original Strange Boys' drummer, stayed in my apartment a few years ago in Fort Wayne, and RULES.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:44pm miss cheri:

keep on rocking evan!! great set so far..
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:46pm G:

It didn't sound like a good noise :-(
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:47pm SteveL:

The horror. The horror.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:48pm Cubicle Carl:

Can you run it from the drive?
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:48pm SteveL:

Yo, RMH. The Fort represents!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:49pm Dave B:

It's been a mad few weeks. But efd on a Thursday are a staple. Like peas and carrots
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:49pm Data:

We do try to keep things "interesting" :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:49pm RMH:

@SteveL We know good rock and dogs.
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:50pm efd:

  Wed. 6/6/12 9:54pm Cubicle Carl:

No sweat. We're back and we're bad.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:55pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Jesus tapdancing christ. On a bike.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:56pm G:

worth the short wait...
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:58pm SteveL:

Worth it all to hear Mr. Neeley say

"You can't hear me, but I'm beatin' on my chest."
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:58pm efd:

if nothing else this means that Holly will be able to catch a few more songs live when she starts listening at 10.
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:58pm Danne D:

d'oh!
Avatar Wed. 6/6/12 9:58pm efd:

He's got a great voice! Singing AND speaking!
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:59pm G:

  Wed. 6/6/12 9:59pm Danne D:

Btw, in fantasy baseball news Skirkie's Ratmen are moving up up up in the league
  Wed. 6/6/12 9:59pm Danne D:

  Wed. 6/6/12 10:00pm Danne D:

  Wed. 6/6/12 10:00pm Danne D:

  Wed. 6/6/12 10:01pm SteveL:

I just tuned in. Glad that I caught the fabulous live show. Thanks for inviting these guys in.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:21pm mildred:

Very excited here & home in the woods.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:22pm Holly in NC:

Of course I remember you Cheri, am trying to feed cats & start human dinner & listen to obn iii's so not as chatty as usual.. give me time & a glass of wine...
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:27pm Danne D:

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:27pm G:

How much time left, DD?
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:27pm Marmalade kitty:

:))))
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:29pm Holly in NC:

Solid contender for reissue of the year (cleaners).

Hey, and may I mention for the 3rd time that the dbs record release party for their new LP is here in Durham this Saturday? (gloat, y'all are seeing the ugly side of me...)
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:30pm Marmalade kitty:

it only takes a second to score a goal.. Brian clough said that
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:31pm G:

@MK: Don't make Danne even more nervous :-)
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:33pm Danne D:

literally fucked by the refs with a penalty and the Kings immediately score to tie it up.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:40pm Ike:

Damn, how could I tune in late and miss a song with a title like "(your love is like) nuclear waste?" That'll teach me. So glad there are archives.

Really liked that Adelines.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:40pm Ajax:

ObnIII's set was KILLLLLLLER
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:43pm Danne D:

FUCK YEAH! 2-1 now
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:44pm Holly in NC:

@Ike - I really like the Adelines also. And they're Welsh, bonus!
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:47pm G:

Danne will now proceed to hold his breath till the game ends.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:51pm Danne D:

EMPTY NETTER. GAME TIME.
GAME 5 SATURDAY when the come back continues.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:54pm Danne D:

Hot chocolate time.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:55pm Marmalade kitty:

what does that mean, Danne? *not familiar w/ ice hockey terminology..
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:55pm tinaun:

Steve Albini too!
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Three cheers for more hockey! At what point will the games be shown on channels that normal citizens can actually tune into? ESPN is available everywhere, but they don't have the contract.
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:58pm Marmalade kitty:

watch for free on first row sports.. Shhh!
  Wed. 6/6/12 10:58pm Mike Sin:

Dan's book had great detail on the most underrated star of '70s baseball = Dick Allen
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:02pm G:

@MK: Danne went out for celebratory hot choc. He'll be back in a little while...
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:03pm Roberto:

I think he just said "for more infro"
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:04pm Marmalade kitty:

It's possible! Info + afro... it's been that kind of night.
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:06pm G:

Isn't it past 4AM in the UK, MK? You have admirable endurance. Or insomnia :-)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:07pm Marmalade kitty:

4:08!!! how time flies :D
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:09pm Marmalade kitty:

somebodies clock is fast/sl;ow... must be me
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:09pm tinaun:

Only on WFMU. Listen for an hour and find 10 new artists to check out, plus a cool live show and a book!
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:11pm tinaun:

Are all my comments being posted twice, or is it just me?
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:11pm Marmalade kitty:

I would love to catch Marys show but I gotsta sleep!

  Wed. 6/6/12 11:16pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 6/6/12 11:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I was flipping channels and caught a few minutes of Sir Elton John.
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happily, I heard Julie play God Save The Queen at the start of her show the other night.
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:25pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 6/6/12 11:28pm Danne D:

  Wed. 6/6/12 11:33pm miss cheri:

see you soon holly
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:34pm Danne D:

@Ken from Hyde Park game 5 through 7 will be on NBC. Not a very big outlet, but most places have it ;)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:34pm Danne D:

night cheri
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:35pm Danne D:

By the way, I believe this makes 43 seven-game series that the Devils have ever been in. They have never been swept :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:36pm Danne D:

longest streak in NHL with a never. The Habs did have a streak of 75 series between sweeps.

Only other teams to never have been swept: Nashville (12) and Tampa Bay (8) (It might be the other way around but those are the two teams)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:37pm Holly in NC:

Good night Marmalade Kitty & Cheri!
Happy for you Danne, as much as a Rangers (& Hurricanes) fan can be ;-)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Glad to hear they're airing the next games on a popular channel. I'm in a hotel room and the NBC Sports Channel isn't in their line-up. We do get that channel on cable at home.
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:49pm miss cheri:

evan let me just say it was a joy hanging out with you tonight,, enjoy your vacay!
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:54pm Danne D:

(It's actually 12 for Tampa Bay and 9 for Nashville btw)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:55pm Danne D:

lol thanks Holly - good night folks :)
Whoa Evan is off next week? I'll still check in after the Devils finish their comeback :)

Take care and thanks for good stuff as always EFD :)
  Wed. 6/6/12 11:57pm tinaun:
