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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EST) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

  Wed. 3/2/16 9:12pm P-90:

The "70's opening" is always a stone gas, Man
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:13pm efd:

If you like the '70s opening you're going to LOVE this year's fundraising marathon premium CD!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:16pm Chris M.:

v handsome dj
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:19pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Hello and goodbye, EFD and friends. Off to see Ziggy Stardust at the Brattle!
  Wed. 3/2/16 9:19pm longish:

What year is this Mondo Rock number?
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:20pm efd:

1981, longish!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:20pm efd:

oh cool Pete, have a blast!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:20pm Loretta:

good evening all.. yeah, it's Wednesday ~ thanks Evan! enjoying the show, as usual..
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:30pm JakeGould:

  Wed. 3/2/16 9:35pm longish:

Hey -- thanks Mr. Davies. I thought they might've been earlier, perhaps mid-70s, sorta proto-New Wave.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:40pm efd:

Understandable thought, longish! I guess they were straight-up new wave, without the proto! :)
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Nice to hear Echo & the Bunnymen.
  Wed. 3/2/16 9:43pm Bklyn kid:

what was the Hova powerpop show called, to lookup in the fmu archives?
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Lovin' the set.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:45pm efd:

It didn't have a name - the archives are here:
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:47pm Marc Francis:

This song is so so great!
  Wed. 3/2/16 9:55pm dd worldwide:

Tasty taste tonight
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 9:55pm Alejandroool:

these are yummy sounds, yes!
  Wed. 3/2/16 9:57pm JakeGould:

Ahhh... Game theory.
  Wed. 3/2/16 10:02pm Bklyn kid:

this whole show is one big Ahhh...
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:03pm Julie:

OOh I really like this! (A belated hello, Evan, from the briefest distant glimpse of you tonight)
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:03pm northguineahills:

What Julie said.. (about shana falana).
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:05pm coelacanth:

Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:05pm coelacanth:

...and hi Evan and Funklettes
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:06pm Alejandroool:

hey CC! And everyone who came before
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:07pm efd:

hi Julie! I saw you too, way up in the front from my spot way in the back! And then I had to drop off my premium master and hightail it upstairs to get ready for the show.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:08pm efd:

and catch-up greets to RRN63, Alejandrool, Bklyn kid, coel, JakeG, Loretta, dd, Chris M (you devil you), and everyone else out there! Thanks for tuning in tonight.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:08pm coelacanth:

Greetings Aleha!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:09pm Alejandroool:

Hola! Of course, helping me get work done, EFD
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:09pm Julie:

very chill show this evening, and VERY chilly out by me right now on the other side of the hudson
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:09pm coelacanth:

Ha! i mean Aleja!! (in my mind i think "aleha"!)
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:14pm Alejandroool:

that's how I see it also. Actually a few people like to say the last half like Handreaux (Hon-dro/Han-dro). Spanish speakers prob say "Ale". Used to go by Alex a lot.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:15pm Alejandroool:

Hudson! We got a big snow dump here in Toronto, mild temps though
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:16pm herb.nyc:

Since someone said "chill", the Chills will be here for NY Pop Fest. Yeah. (Oops, I don't have their new record)
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:17pm Alejandroool:

efd - missed the first set but good on the Dany Laj - him and his band are very nice people!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:17pm coelacanth:

(...and Claw! calls you "drooolio"!)
- maybe i should just ask you? -i always thought it was "al-e-han-dro".
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:19pm coelacanth:

i thought maybe cait brennan had a surprising (to me) gaelic pronunciation - like cian nugent.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:23pm Alejandroool:

that's correct, cc - tho don't mind much what ppl wanna call me.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:24pm herb.nyc:

Can we get naming rights to the ticket giveaway, Evan, during Marathon?
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:26pm coelacanth:

Maria Muldaur has that covered.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:29pm efd:

the ticket giveaway naming rights are available as far as I know (but it ain't cheap!) - should be in here somewhere:
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:30pm Julie:

Cait is a friend of a friend, I'm glad she's getting lots of attention here!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:32pm efd:

that's funny, she's a friend of a friend of mine too!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:34pm Julie:

Yay for cool friends!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:39pm coelacanth:

Yay! (i have a friend that was played on this show tonight too.)
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:40pm Alejandroool:

yay friends who make nice tunes!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:42pm herb.nyc:

Thx for Adoption page, Evan. 7SD did a "hi Amy Vogel" & got a donation. Listen to the archive. Kinduva cool idea.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:43pm coelacanth:

and Yay for the existence of a radio station that would play them!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:45pm coelacanth:

well, there is the "Odessey and Oracle" album. -never forget!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 10:59pm coelacanth:

Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:06pm coelacanth:

i like your sentiment Evan, even if it's just almost every week.
- great to cian too.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:11pm coelacanth:

(jeez. "...to HEAR cian...")
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:15pm Alejandroool:

Hear it! feel it!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:24pm Uncle Michael:

Put a quarter on the headshell!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:28pm Alejandroool:

ah yes. Sloan's doing up a 20th anniversary shows and such for "One Chord To Another"
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:28pm Alejandroool:

I've got a big soft spot for this album
  Wed. 3/2/16 11:34pm ice in bklyn:

Man I haven't been reminded in a while. Thx fed
  Wed. 3/2/16 11:35pm ice in bklyn:

Fed is autocorrect for EFD..
  Wed. 3/2/16 11:36pm ice in bklyn:

I don't have a story for the godfathers, but that's a good song
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:37pm Alejandroool:

This is the kind of distortion that reminds me of first playing guitar in my parent's (and other parent's) basements
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:44pm Alejandroool:

Sloan's got one US date fwiw: 04/08 St. Paul, MN - Turf Club
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:46pm efd:

oh yeah! That blended right in with the Canadian dates in the list I was looking at.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:51pm coelacanth:

regarding twitter and facadebook
...i would if i did but i don't so i wont.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:52pm efd:

fair enough!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:53pm coelacanth:

...i am a big fan of the social-media air-horn though!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:54pm efd:

I should offer that up for adoption during the marathon! Might be too late for this year, though.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:55pm Alejandroool:

thx for the show efd - take it easy, all
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:56pm coelacanth:

Ha! you should! -i wonder if Mary Wing has offered her bell for naming rights.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:57pm coelacanth:

ciao ... 'jandro!
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 11:58pm coelacanth:

yeah, like this tuff sunshine!
Avatar Thu. 3/3/16 12:00am coelacanth:

Thanks efd! have a good night everyone.
