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.

Hi everyone! Please enjoy this re-run of the July 4 Indepen-Dance party! WFMU is close to being fully operational again, but I wasn't able to broadcast from the station tonight so we'll enjoy this show together!
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:07pm SteveL:

The return to normalcy is appreciated, even if not live. Always good to get things back on the air.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:08pm efd:

Thanks SteveL! One step at a time...
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:08pm efd:

And by the way, next week I'll be doing the Singles Going Seventies show that I'd planned to do tonight. I didn't get all those records together for nothing!
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:09pm G:

Let me get my temporal scanner from the bathroom. Think the fever may be comin on...
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:10pm G:

I guess this playlist began with something from the 70s :P
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:11pm SteveL:

G: As it most usually does!
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:12pm efd:

Hi G! Yes, I can guarantee that this show started with the '70s! :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:20pm Skirkie:

Oh damn, I remember those fireworks. They were pretty cool.
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:22pm Christina:

Awesome show, Evan!!
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:22pm efd:

Hey Skirkie! Yep, time to flash back to a less stormy time for a few hours.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:22pm efd:

Thanks Christina! Glad to have you listening in.
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Glad to hear the pile from this week is becoming the pile for next week.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:29pm efd:

Hey Barkevious! You bet, I wasn't going to let hours of pulling 45s go to waste!
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:29pm efd:

Plus this is an all-vinyl show, at least, if not all singles.

This song takes on a certain poignancy tonight, I'd say.
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:37pm Skirkie:

I made pepperoni bread and went to a barbeque in Kearny on the 4th. It was such a nice day.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:38pm efd:

Mmm, pepperoni bread.
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:39pm G:

Less than four months ago. Tempus fugit.

I was with relatives in Maryland the first ten days of July, and wasn't listening to radio much during the heavy social-calendar evenings...
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:45pm efd:

G, I hope those relatives (and you, for that matter) weren't hit hard by the storm. And of course that goes for everyone reading this.
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:48pm Skirkie:

I encountered fish on the sidewalk in Secaucus today.

http://t.co/1F6TIiQL
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:50pm G:

This time the Maryland connections were just skirted and were fine... My uncle up in Delaware near the coast lost power for awhile, but it's back now...

After Irene, my brother lost power for a week, but the other side of his street was on a different grid, so everyone just bought extension cords and ran them across the street to the their facing neighbor's house to save all the groceries in fridges and freezers.

If only some of the current NY/NJ issues were so easy to fix with a little cooperation...
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:51pm kate:

way to keep disco alive in this time of trouble efd!
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:52pm G:

We actually lost power here in central Brooklyn from 9:15 to 11:50 last night, naturally right after I'd decided we were in the clear and put away the flashlights :-)
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:54pm efd:

Skirkie, amazing. G, that's an inspiring story! I heard about the late blackouts in Brooklyn last night - glad the didn't last very long.

Hi Kate! I figured maybe this would help take people's minds off of reality for a little while....
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:54pm kiemzi:

just got back to hear "native new yorker" come on and it really hit the spot, what with all this madness going on!
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:57pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Always clean your vinyl recordings with our patented SNATZOTEK cloth, available with other fine SNATZO products at your local hi-fi outlet.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:58pm efd:

Hi Kiemzi! Yeah, I forgot there was that little "civic pride" set in this show. I guess it was kinda timely.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 9:58pm efd:

Barkevious, are you reading off of a Revillos record? :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:59pm kiemzi:

it's great! glad you're doin' ok and powered up, even!
  Wed. 10/31/12 9:59pm Patrick:

glad you are playing this tonight EFD, never got a chance to catch it live or on the archive, some great stuff!! hope FMU is back live soon!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:00pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Going from memory from RevUp, one of the greatest. Nice catch!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:01pm kate:

disco always does :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:03pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)
So since this is a rerun, efd can comment more I see :D

This was back when I still thought I had a chance to win the EFD fantasy league :(
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:03pm efd:

Hey Patrick! Yeah, when Ken asked me to pick a show to repeat I thought this might be a good choice since a lot of people were busy celebrating July 4th on July 4th.
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:03pm SteveL:

Is The Quick any relation to The Quick with Danny Wilde?
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:07pm efd:

Pretty sure that is a whole other Quick.
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:09pm SteveL:

Re. The Quick: yeah, thought so, but hey, styles do change. You familiar with the Quick that I refer to?
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:09pm Skirkie:

I don't mean to explicitly tweet via comment section, but I've been mostly drunk for days.

Looking forward to Skirkie's recipe-for-disaster cocktail menu.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:12pm efd:

SteveL, yes, pretty sure their LP was reissued a couple of years ago?

Hi Danne, yes, better days for sure!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:13pm G:

@Danne: What a coincidence, July 4th was also back when it still seemed theoretically possible that a certain Valentine-managed team could turn things around and meet preseason penant forecasts! Well, for the Sox, Yanks, O's, et al., there's always 2013.
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:13pm SteveL:

Ahhh, that's good news, although I have a pretty sharp copy.
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:14pm G:

Has everyone heard the Sandy-Yankee jokes already?

Sandy, biggest NYC power outage since the playoffs.

Sandy, costliest NYC disaster since the A-Roid ten-year contract.

Etc. etc.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:16pm efd:

Excellent point, G. Although I for one would not have thought on July 4 that the O's would actually make the playoffs.

I also heard "change the storm's name to A-Rod, then it won't hit anything."
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:18pm Danne D:

I went with the "If the Jets would just play Tebow, the storm will suddenly turn away at the last moment" theme
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:19pm G:

Well, the O's were in first for much of the first half of the season, but not till September was it clear that was not a weird streaky fluke.

Between my Detroit childhood, New York adulthood, and Maryland relatives, I seem ghettoized in the AL East!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:20pm G:

Donna!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

"Records and Filmworks.". Ho ho. Is that Gene Simmons doing the greasy voiceover?
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:22pm efd:

Bite your tongue, Barkevious! That was the super-classy MISTER Frankie Crocker, the Chief Rocker!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:23pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I recline corrected.

Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:24pm efd:

It's funny, I'm realizing I pulled many of these same songs for the Singles Going Seventies show! I think I'll have to put some of them back, no reason to play them two weeks in a row.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:25pm efd:

As it is I already pulled about three times more records than I could possibly need.
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:32pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Why didn't Dorothy Moore have more hits? Wow, she was good!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:35pm Danne D:

woo Barkevious :)
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:35pm efd:

Hey Michael! I have to say that "Misty Blue" never really did it for me, but I love "Let The Music Play."
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:35pm efd:

Triple Barkevious shout-out!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:39pm Holly in NC:

Tuning in to catch opening of Double Dutch Bus just made my YEAR.

hiya holly :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:43pm Holly in NC:

Hi efd, Danne and everyone! Yay fmu!

However, Yankee haters can just stop, I mean really, it's a sign of innate Yankee superiority that y'all are still talking about them ;-)
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:43pm Bigass Palmetto Bug:

I'll be back by next July 4th :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:43pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--you disappoint--Misty Blue is terrific and her vocals are wonderful--she recently appeared on Treme and it reminded how great I thought she was then
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:44pm Bigass Palmetto Bug:

A fight!!!!! :)
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:45pm efd:

I've got no quarrel with her vocal skills... I'm just missing the part of the brain that appreciates slow ballad-y songs.
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:45pm Holly in NC:

Bigass! Small yet vaguely disgusting slug emerging from drain cannot hold a candle to you - miss you tons!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:47pm Bigass Palmetto Bug:

Yeppers. There's slugs, and then there's BUGS
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:49pm Barkevious Shabazz:

There's slugs,and then there's micheal vick.

Hey steve, that's awesome! Thanks!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:56pm Nads Fans:

Go Nads!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:56pm Holly in NC:

I just ascertained that I do not own Groove Line on vinyl, cassette, cd or mp3. Really thought I did. Rectifying tomorrow

@Barkevious - true that. BTW, earlier this evening I brought 1 bag of candy for the hostess of our neighborhood block party to add the communal childrens' pot, but at same party I personally chose to give out 5 different kinds of yummy dog treats for the neighborhood dogs, and we all (kids, dogs, other theoretical adults) had the best party ever!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:58pm Holly in NC:

that's cheesy, efd ;-)
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:58pm steve:

rough times like these truly call for some disco
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 10:59pm efd:

steve, that was exactly my reasoning!
  Wed. 10/31/12 10:59pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Sylvester. Unimpeachable.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:00pm R. M. Nixon, 1974:

Unimpeachable? How do I get in on that?
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:01pm efd:

Wow, speaking of unimpeachable I just realized that when I come in to do my show next week the election will be over.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:01pm Ford:

Don't worry RMN, I've got your back
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:02pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Hey wait, guys!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:04pm Danne D:

this disco got a little proggy for a second there :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Daily Show has a new episode. They had "heck of a job" brownies in a skit.

my one regret in life is not being alive in the late 70s
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:08pm efd:

At least you have the Evan "Funk" Davies show! :D
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:09pm efd:

Also, as regrets go that one's pretty much out of your control.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:09pm efd:

Hi Ken! How's everything in Hyde Park? I'll have to catch up on that Daily Show later.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:11pm Holly in NC:

I took a 97 yr old woman to vote today & to help her I had to fill in a circle that I didn't like to circle. That said, I ALSO filed a complaint w the county board of elections because friggin' democrats outside our early voting area were EXTREMELY aggressive and doing WILDLY illegal things, it was horrible and shameful. I've never seen anything like it. Yes I said democrats, that was not a typo. And there's a good chance Ms. L would've voted differently if she hadn't been so harassed by those assholes.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:15pm efd:

Wow, Holly - good for you for helping that woman to vote, and I hope those demonstrators outside the voting area ease up.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:15pm steve:

haha yeah... you know, being alive now may be better for a disco and dance enthusiast... i can actually download and hear more than even the most connected djs could in the 70s.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:15pm G:

@Holly: Controlling people (of any political or nonpolitical persuasion) never seem to get that the rest of us have options.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:16pm Droll:

Holly, Don't worry, I spent the day rigging electronic voting machines. The American People™ are going to love having Droll as President. My campaign was largely overwhelmed by the less reputable (but better funded) parties, so you probably missed my campaign slogan of "Bring Back Reality", and yes, I use the Snakefinger song of that name as my campaign theme song. I might make it the national anthem.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:16pm steve:

ugh, thats truly disappointing Holly
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

We're in pretty good shape here. The winds & rain were surprisingly mild. Sending our love. Happy Halloween.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I will gladly vote for any candidate brining the Ralph Records catalog to prime time.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:21pm efd:

That's good, Ken, happy to hear it.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:22pm efd:

Folks, with all the post-Sandy devastation I just cannot in good conscience ask for pledges to WFMU's Silent Fundraiser tonight. BUT, in case they're out there reading the comments, I do want to thank some folks who have made kind and generous pledges today:
Brian in Wexford, PA
Craig in Toronto
Paul in Staten Island
Bryan in Manchester NH
Abraham in Chicago IL
Craig in NY, NY
And don't worry, I'll be back to begging mode next week -- due to the storm and the related cancellation of the Record Fair WFMU is now even MORE in the hole so I will be silently asking for your pledges again soon.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:22pm Danne D:

I hate those politcal types
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:24pm Danne D:

Anyway folks, I have to head on home, to what I understand, is a place that has power. For which I am grateful. Have a good night everyone and stay safe and thanks for recorded greatness and comment board companionship, EFD :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:24pm amEdeo:

Danne Duckcaller! Good to see you alive and well.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:25pm Holly in NC:

@steve - yes, it really was sickening. Ms. L (born in 1915, has never missed a vote) voted straight party D *except* for pres and she had been undecided re pres before getting to the polling area.
Full disclosure - I also voted today & wrote in for Jill Stein. Too tired to debate, but want y'all to know :-)
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:25pm efd:

Good night Danne, hope those reports of power are correct! Get home safe.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:26pm Danne D:

Thanks amEdeo :) I'm very fortunate - glad to see you too :)
Take care all! I already voted - assuming my vote isn't water logged.

Anyhow, really going this time g'night :)
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:28pm steve:

i doubled my pledge today... evan as usual i forgot to pledge to your, or any, show. i forget that "pledge to" link is there every single time without fail.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:31pm Holly in NC:

@Droll - if you need a VP let me send you my CV...
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:31pm G:

@steve: EFD would know far better than I, but would a quick email to swag wrangler Joe McGasko fix a pledge needing adjustment?
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:32pm efd:

Thanks Steve! The money all goes to the station, so any donation is appreciated whether my show is "credited" or not. And late thanks to Neil in Ogdensburg NJ!
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:33pm efd:

G, thanks for the suggestion; for various reasons there are issues with allocating a pledge to a show (or shows) after the fact, so it's fine to just leave it as is.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:36pm steve:

ah ok. maybe i'll finally do it right at the next marathon.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:37pm efd:

I'll be watching!
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:39pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The next marathon starts Sunday morning in Staten Island ... no, wait.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:40pm efd:

ha! Yeah, we've got to get in on that somehow...
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:42pm Holly in NC:

Woa. I am pulling down my attic stairs because my er, very old kickass roller skates are up there somewhere, & this song is making my feet cry for them like a toddler cries for mama
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:44pm efd:

Just remember, Holly, the skates go on AFTER you come back down from the attic.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:46pm Holly in NC:

OK, attic too full & dark & spiderish, so now I'm just Karaoke roller skating
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:47pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Ah, Arthur Baker!
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:50pm efd:

Yes, a classic! More in the "dance" than "disco" category, but I'm not going to worry about that.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:51pm steve:

does anyone else listen to Nick Damon's Future Music from the Past? its basically a 20+ hour radio series of disco and dance goodness 75-85 similar to efd's disco indepen-dance. i listen to it constantly when not tuned to fmu.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:53pm efd:

I'm not familiar with that but I'll check it out! Sounds like it would be right up my alley.
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:53pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Indeed Shannon's Let the Music Play is a classic and somehow, for me, inexorably tied to the Roxy in New York (I think every time I was there they played this song, and that includes the rock concerts they had at the Roxy)
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:53pm Holly in NC:

I am dancing, and I don't generally dance unless I'm blackout level drunk. Very unfortunately and not by choice, I am totally sober. Power of efd!
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:54pm efd:

The music is intoxicating!
  Wed. 10/31/12 11:56pm steve:

efd... i think you'd love it. he does excellent narrations on the history of each record and does a great mix of hits and deep obscurities and all in between. only music radio i listen to regularly besides fmu.
Avatar    Wed. 10/31/12 11:57pm efd:

cool, thanks for the tip!
Avatar    Thu. 11/1/12 12:00am efd:

Thanks for listening in tonight, folks! I'm looking forward to returning to the Magic Factory next week and bringing you nothing but singles from the '70s, which I'd been planning to do tonight. Maybe with a little less disco than I was thinking originally, though. :)

I think WFMU is going into Flaming Robot Of Love shuffle mode for the overnight, and we're hoping to resume some live broadcasts from the station tomorrow. Check the wfmu.org homepage for the latest!
Avatar    Thu. 11/1/12 12:00am efd:

whoops, and I guess that's that!

Well I'm sure something will happen soon. I'm going to close out the playlist and go to bed - thanks again everyone!
