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 March 16, 2016: FUNDRAISING MARATHON WEEK 2! With special guest MC Faye!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments



This is the second and FINAL week of the 2016 WFMU fundraising Marathon! I heard from some of you last week, but I need to hear from the rest of you TONIGHT! WFMU is a completely independent, non-commercial, listener-supported radio station, and everyone who's on the air here does their show for free. We don't get paid! The money you generously pledge is used almost entirely for services and inanimate objects! (outside of a small and dedicated paid staff)

Please make a pledge NOW of $75 or more (I said or more) and you'll AUTOMAGICALLY get my premium CD Quadraphonic! Starting With The '70s IV (pictured above), the fourth volume of 20 heretofore largely unknown songs from the '70s, lovingly hand-selected from my personal collection! I honestly think this is the best one yet, and I'm not just saying that so you'll pledge.

PLUS! Pledge $120 or more NOW -- that's just $10 a month! -- and get get in the running for my Grand Prize: FOUR killer albums from the late great Sing Sing Records label! The lucky grand prize winner will get Jook Rule by The Jook (a 2LP set!), the Liverpool Echo s/t LP, the Pumphouse Gang s/t LP AND the Yes It Is album by Rockin' Horse! ONE lucky pledger will win FOUR amazing LPs at the end of tonight's show! Will it be you? Not unless you pledge $10 per month or more TONIGHT. Pledge NOW before you forget! Thank you!

Missed the beginning of the show but thats a funny/excellent/appropriate opener. It's fun listening to dj's from different shows collaborate during funding drive. I don't know if you throw your names in hats or what but it always works.

“My Father’s Place”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/16/16 9:59pm JakeGould:

I can easily see this song being modded slightly and used for a local electrician’s late night commercial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/16/16 9:59pm Cubicle Carl:

"My Father's Place" was definitely in that circuit. I think they booked some bigger touring acts too.
