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.

Options October 2, 2013: SING SING RECORDS DJ NIGHT! (Studio of Tomorrow Campaign, week 1)

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

October is here, and as we've done the past couple of Octobers we here at WFMU are conducting a SILENT (shh!) fundraiser. I won't be talking about it during my show (well maybe one time, but only for a minute!), which means I'm depending on the written word to convince you to PLEASE PLEDGE!

You can find complete info about the Studio Of Tomorrow Campaign elsewhere on our website, but in brief we're asking for your help to build out a new 100-seat radio theater on the ground floor of WFMU's building in Jersey City. We need to get the space up to code and purchase basic equipment for the space so YOU THE LISTENER can join us for live sets by bands, special live broadcasts, and other cool radio events.

I've put together five (FIVE!) special shows this month to help get you excited about the Studio Of Tomorrow Campaign, to remind you of how awesome WFMU is, and hopefully to motivate you to pledge. I'm super-psyched to have Sing Sing Records founders Trey Lindsay and Jeremy Thompson take over the show this week and play some of their amazing records!

If you've already pledged, THANK YOU! Your support is greatly appreciated. If not, please consider making a pledge now.

Stay tuned for more exciting special shows all month, and please take a moment to Like The Evan "Funk" Davies Show on Facebook and follow me on Twitter! Thank you.!

BTW, Rob's House is (was?) a *great* label ;-)

hello! i love me some analog phaser action
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 9:35pm efd:

This totally could have been a Singles Going Steady week show, but I've got other plans for that! Just think of it as a Singles Going Steady bonus!
  Wed. 10/2/13 9:35pm Justin CollectorScum:

Never heard that Paul West before. Pretty damn good for an '82 UK powerpopper.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 9:36pm pacific standard simon:

Love the guitar on "Radio Songs". How do they do that?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 9:36pm efd:

oh and by the way, we've just started WFMU's Studio Of Tomorrow fundraising campaign - I hope you're able to pledge! Just use the white box over there on the left!

Oh, to be sure, Evan.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 9:39pm efd:

@RRN63, yes, this set is all Belfast bands!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 9:41pm Holly in NC:

Jeremy, thank you very much for donating a copy of Wired Up! to WFMU for a marathon prize. I am the extremely happy & fortunate winner. It's superb.

Protex. Been a while.

Seems like I own one record per set.

What about that band Zounds?

great stuff. i could clicky star every song ive heard so far
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:00pm Holly in NC:

@steve - so true. clicky star mania!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:02pm steve:

i gotta talk to Kenzo - if one clicky stars enough songs, a big disco ball should drop from the top of the page
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:05pm efd:

well my plan to post photos of all the records those guys are playing tonight quickly went by the wayside.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:08pm amEdeo:

I wanted to eat dinner, but then I realized I had to wash the dishes first. Now I am listening to the radio. Hello.

Wash the radio and eat the music, amEdeo. Hello.

Me too!...I'm gonna do it though...

If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:11pm Holly in NC:

I just clicky starred the show itself, much easier. Also still clicking songs ;-)
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:12pm Uncle Michael:

Sing Sing needs to reissue some Jerry Orbach.

Hey, what happens if you credit a pledge to several shows at once?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:27pm efd:

by the way if anyone wants to update me on the baseball game that would be cool.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:29pm fleep:

Thanks to Delmon Young's solo HR and Desmond Jennings' two-RBI double, the Rays lead the Indians 3-0
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:30pm Holly in NC:

3-0 Tampa Bay. EFD, why do you care?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:30pm Danne D:

Hi EFD, Hey everyone
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:30pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:31pm Danne D:

Hiya @Holly!
Boston plays the winner.
In the case of TB we have a mutual tweep friend who is a huge Rays fan. In the case of the Indians they are managed by the manager who led the Red Sox to their 2 recent World Series wins
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:31pm efd:

Just curious about who the Red Sox will be playing, Holly!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:33pm Holly in NC:

@danne & efd, sorry, you know why I have little interest ;-)
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:34pm efd:

oh I know why YOU'RE not interested, Holly!
  Wed. 10/2/13 10:36pm 12539:

@davex, if you credit multiple shows they usually split the donation among the show pledge bars. But it all goes to the same good place in the end.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:37pm davex:

@12539: Thanks, the "trouble" is that I listen to so many shows...
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:37pm Holly in NC:

@efd, that was mean.
Love for Rivera?
  Wed. 10/2/13 10:42pm 12539:

@davex, I don't know if there's a limit to the "add another show" button on the pledge page. Maybe you can find out.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:43pm steve:

i just noticed the hearts are back!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:45pm davex:

@12539, I just might...
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:45pm efd:

Holly, definitely respect for Rivera.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:48pm steve:

I see it steve! Thanks!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:50pm efd:

@Will, belated response to your Zounds question - they do have something Zounds-related that we'll try to get to in a bit!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 10:59pm Danne D:

Very peppy song about mass murder with heavy overtones of the Sweet

Thanks Loretta! I'm just sitting here cueing up the records that Trey and Jeremy are handing me!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:28pm Loretta:

I think I remember The Brats from '73, '74?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:28pm efd:

That's right, Loretta - they were definitely contemporaries of Teenage Lust & the Lustettes!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:30pm Loretta:

well I'm glad at least I have some memory left! thanks Evan.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:30pm Holly in NC:

Epicycle's Residential Area is far better than Rush's Subdivisions, I say semi-reluntantly ;-)

Holly, Them's fightin' words!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:32pm Holly in NC:

@Loretta - every time I see your cat, I think "what a gorgeous cat". Please don't tell my gorgeous cats.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:32pm Holly in NC:

@Droll - hurt me to say, don't hurt me more!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:33pm efd:

hey everyone, glad you've been enjoying Jeremy and Trey from Sing Sing picking and spinning the hits tonight! I just wanted to briefly remind you that we just started our Studio Of Tomorrow silent fundraiser which runs for the month of October; we're trying to raise all of the funds we need to open our new performance space to the public and make it through the fall without interrupting our programming with a second on-air pledge drive. I hope you can take a moment to make a pledge now - just use this link: www.wfmu.org...

Sorry, ef'd, had to go eat my west coast time zone supper. :)
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:37pm Loretta:

@ Holly - your cat is most certainly 'gorgeous' too! my boy is the love of my life who right now wants a bath! go figure..

Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:40pm Stevel:

Tiger is exceptionally neato!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:40pm pacific standard simon:

They sound kinda Danish, don't they?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:41pm Uncle Michael:

I don't know how to answer that.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:41pm efd:

@PSS, they are indeed Danish!
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:42pm Holly in NC:

@pacific standard simon - I still haven't eaten my east coast time zone dinner - that, & the pre-dinner martini I've been enjoying might explain my typos.

@Loretta - The gorgeous cat I'm caring for tonight (not 1 of mine, but I love him as my own) pretty much begged me to comb out his bloomers tonight. Go figure indeed.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:42pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:45pm Loretta:

@ Holly - I love the bloomers!!! LOL I really do.

Just checking in to say this show is killer.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/13 11:46pm Holly in NC:

That Tiger song is on the Bonehead Crunchers v 4 comp - the whole Bonehead Crunchers series is beyond kickass. No idea if licensed though.

Thanks Holly. Looks like all but vol two are easily found.

Poor Tito.
