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.

Totally loving all this Springsteen!!!!

wham had three or four hits in 1985 yet i've never heard this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 9:20pm efd:

you play one song that doesn't fit the narrative...

Excellent opening block sir.

Thanks Figgsrock!

Growing up in Colorado I certainly never had the chance to see Suicide back in the day (or since, for that matter.) Love to hear any tales from those who did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 9:27pm JakeGould:

I see what you are doing here with “The Cars.” Bravo! www.reactiongifs.us...
Avatar Wed. 7/20/16 9:28pm Marc Francis:

I make joke. Nebraska was basically an Ode to Suicide...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 9:29pm Stevel:

Awesome.
Avatar Wed. 7/20/16 9:29pm Marc Francis:

I give up. Maybe make colour comments for jokes. Have fun. Bye bye.

@MarcFrancis: Lighten up, Francis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 9:50pm melinda:

That was a nice tribute set.

Wow, haven't heard this Undertones track in years.

it's a good 'un!

noted, colin!

Cruz is such a tool, the Republicans booed him through his speech. The only way to watch is muted, captions, with the efd Show playing. Loud.

efd + Jim the Poet = awesome

Evening all! This Mikey Erg reminds me, just a little, of New Jersey's own True Love band. Haven't heard from them in years. Anyone know what happened to them? They were on Belock's show once or twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:07pm Folsom:

hopefully efd doesn't reference red sox
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:09pm efd:

you may want to tune out for the first minute or so, Folsom. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:10pm JakeGould:

If Jim doesn’t get this shirt in Cleveland, he should not be considered the most trusted anything anywhere. dudo6el28sqqp.cloudfront.net...

I must admit efd s a really good marathon co-host for Sportsy Talk, I don't know anyone else that could do that well.

Sweet! Something off of the latest GbV LP! Love this album so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:12pm Stevel:

Jake: I approve your message.

Yes, this new GBV works great.

Cruz got booed
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I understand that some guy burned a flag in protest and then lit himself afire. I don't think he was hurt badly. Newt Girngrich speaking now.
  Wed. 7/20/16 10:24pm Marc15:

Newt Gingrich is the most unprincipled scoundrel to ever walk through Washington since Aaron Burr
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:24pm dale:

didn't his sons shoot an elephant? seems appropriate.

@EFD: Can you ask Jim if he’s seen any grab-ass or hanky pinky there? Asking for a friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:28pm JakeGould:

Ack! “hanky PANKY”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:28pm melinda:

hanky pinky, haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:29pm JakeGould:

@melinda: Hanky pinky is what happens when a Republican ejaculates in a handkerchief.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:29pm Folsom:

@dale The sons did kill a leopard

@Folsom: So those guys have penetrated a pussy at least once? **going to hell right now***=
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

They also booed Heidi Cruz out of the building, citing her association with Goldman Sachs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:32pm Folsom:

@JakeGould I know Trump wants to penetrate his daughter.
  Wed. 7/20/16 10:32pm P-90:

The wouldnt do that shit if elephants and leopards shot back. Just sayin.

Thanks Jim & efd, love hearing the WFMU take on the RNC.
Avatar Wed. 7/20/16 10:42pm Figgsrock:

I wish all political coverage was like that, EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:43pm efd:

thanks guys! And thanks for that link, Ike, I'll check it out later.
  Wed. 7/20/16 10:45pm P-90:

Thanks guys, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews couldn't have summarized the Cleveland goings-on any better than you just did. And they would never follow it with Bowie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:47pm Stevel:

Jake: I hate to see you so disappointed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:49pm efd:

I was going to ask about that t-shirt but couldn't get back to it. Some shirt though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 10:53pm JakeGould:

Nice piece of shirt!

@Stevel: I really don’t care about the mating rituals of Republicans. I only can hope that the strippers, hookers, masseuses and others of the ilk can cash in as much as they can during this week of RNC indulgence.
Avatar Wed. 7/20/16 10:53pm Loretta:

hi Evan!!! I never get tired hearing Bowie..... thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:57pm efd:

My pleasure, Loretta! Always good to see you here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/20/16 10:58pm Stevel:

Jake: You are a kind and caring person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 11:02pm JakeGould:

If the RNC believes in trickle down economics, they should at least “make it rain” every now and then.
  Wed. 7/20/16 11:03pm Ignore Function:

It's cool that Dalek is still making music. I
Avatar Wed. 7/20/16 11:07pm Loretta:

yeah, I missed the live show for a few weeks; my computer is still 'acting out".
