Options October 21, 2015: Singles Going Seventies, Part III!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

Time for my third Crunch Time show of 2015! Crunch Time is we at WFMU are calling our Silent Fundraiser this year, and I've put together another special show to remind you of how awesome WFMU is (not to mention my show in particular! right?!), and hopefully to motivate you to pledge.

This week is Singles Going Steady Week on WFMU, and tonight I'm bringing you Singles Going Seventies! The program will be limited to singles released from 1970 through 1979 (inclusive) -- but as regular listeners know, this really isn't much of a limitation at all! Saddle up for sassy 7" releases from the seventies: from disco to pop to punk to rock (classic and otherwise) to AM gold, whether it was in the Top 40 or just Bubbling Under you'll hear it all!

Now, because this is a SILENT fundraiser I won't be talking about it much at all during my show which means I'm depending on the written word to convince you to PLEASE PLEDGE! This is the time of year when the money we raised during our 2015 fundraising marathon starts to dry up, and the 2016 marathon is still several long months away, so any help you can offer would be amazing.

If you've already pledged, THANK YOU! Your support is greatly appreciated. If not,
P L E A S E   P L E D G E   N O W !

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

Based on what was in the jukebox at the Pizza Inn in Denton, TX circa 1977/78 there was plenty of disco on 7-inch.

what's amazing me this week is how well these old 45s held up, in general. most everything i'm hearing sounds really great! no warp & wear at all.
  Wed. 10/21/15 9:54pm Linda Lee:

haven't heard anything from the back of a cereal box yet ..
  Wed. 10/21/15 9:55pm Lord Gamblor:

I would have given tonight, but Man City scored in the last minute and spoiled my bet that they wouldn't. Thankfully I won on Real Madrid as I bet they'd tie with Pars St Germain. A good night with $100 profit, but not enough for me to start throwing it around. Well done Mr Ghould.

In the limited universe of songs with handclaps all the way thru, Maxine Nightengale's is pretty much the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/21/15 9:55pm JakeGhould:

Also, old school 45s were pretty much engineered to sound god on average to bad sound systems like crappy car stereos or even AM radios. So to me that makes them really pop out.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/21/15 9:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The station is at 52% of the goal of $200,000 and the month is like 2/3 over. The cash needs to flow in at a higher rate to achieve the goal.

I have a Star Wars Christmas single. The a-side is "What Can You Get a Wookiee for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb?)" and "R2-D2, We Wish You A Merry Christmas" is on the flip side.

TRIVIA: Jon Bon Jovi's first appearance on a record was vocals on "R2-D2, We Wish You A Merry Christmas."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/21/15 10:12pm JakeGhould:

“What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas?” A nice jacket. I never see Wookie’s wearing nice clothes. Always that bandolier and what’s that for? Snacks?

At least now we know Jon Bon Jovi recorded some worthwhile music during his career.

i'll be careful,evan, but it's a killer show tonight!

yes, weird. also weird how the guitar line sounds just like a sample!

I'll suggest there is more than one unintentionally weird thing about this record, but that one hadn't occurred to me.

I'd say this is the "ill-advised covers" portion of the show except I've always loved this Frampton record.

Fun Fact: This will be the first World Series ever that does not feature one of the 16 original Major League Baseball Franchises.

aha! @johnk77 I should have guessed that you would be THE person to remember Rubicon. :D
Avatar Wed. 10/21/15 11:08pm Danne D:

At least one of:
Braves, Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers, Giants, Indians, Tigers, Reds, A's, Phillies, Cubs, White Sox, Pirates, Cardinals, Senators (now Twins), Browns (now Orioles) has been in every World Series up until now.

That Rubicon song a little while ago was kind of nice.
  Wed. 10/21/15 11:14pm daveB from Oakland:

this song has elements of Jackson 5's "ABC". And some messed up lyrics
Avatar Wed. 10/21/15 11:15pm glenn:

another weird, and somewhat unbelievable, bit of sports trivia - until this year, the montreal canadiens had never started a season 5 - 0.

(the CCS song(

@daveb, once you really start hearing some of these lyrics it's .. unbelievable.

@daveB from Oakland: Yeah, that track was rip-off weirdo.
  Wed. 10/21/15 11:20pm Linda Lee:

it's been absolutely decades since i've heard this blackfoot sue & i really like it much better than i should. for such a clear beatles/hendrix derivative it's really clean & nice.

Hi Evan: I haven't been around these parts in a while but I couldn't lurk for an entire singles-only show. Great listening.

hey folks, just another plug to give if you can during this "Crunch Time" silent fundraiser (and mascot contest!). I'd love to go into next week's show with something more than 55% of my monthly goal. And many thanks to everyone who's already pledged!

The chorus of the Streak song reminds me of that Scottish band from the early 2000s called the 1990s who, you know, sound like a '70s band.

the series will not end on an appeal to the 3rd base ump...ball 4.

and again 1 more strike...

@Evan: I think you inadvertently wrote the headline to Jonathan King's obit with that comment about novelty songs being the memes of their day.

Called(!) strike 3!

NotCub...er Mets Win!

Thank you for beating the Cubs!

Playing "Shame Shame Shame" while announcing that the Mets are going to the World Series - coincidence?

The Stretch number reminds me of "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" by Ian Dury.
