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 12, 2016: DAVID REES, co-host of ELECTION PROFIT MAKERS, live in studio!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

It's WEEK 2 of WFMU's October Silent Fundraiser and I've got a great show for you tonight! Entrepreneur, humorist, and television personality David Rees joins me in the WFMU studios to share some of his favorite records with you, the WFMU listener! David co-hosts the hilarious and insightful Election Profit Makers podcast about election-related prediction markets; he's also the author of How To Sharpen Pencils and hosted Going Deep With David Rees on the NatGeo and Esquire networks; in the 2000s he created the comics Get Your War On and My New Fighting [or Filing] Technique Is Unstoppable. If you like what you hear -- on this show, or anywhere on WFMU -- I hope you'll take a moment to make a pledge now.

EFD, tell David that he should tweet the next time he's going to do karaoke again at the Carriage Inn. His Going Deep viewing party there was such fun.

I think that was the year I lived in Chapel Hill. I remember all those bands, or at least all those band names. Yay Metal Flake Mother!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/12/16 10:24pm Kat in Chicago:

Weird year that was. Fled Chicago when everything in my life went to crap at once. Lived in a house in Carrboro infested with camelback crickets, washed dishes at a diner and went to the Cradle three or four nights a week. Met someone there and moved to New York with that person a year later.
  Wed. 10/12/16 10:24pm brian:

Tempted to call in... but how to just casually chat with two of the most supremely cool dudes of cooldom... Better to just let them do their own talk and spin the tunes.
  Wed. 10/12/16 10:24pm Shelagh:

Definitely reminds me of Archers of Loaf, like Web in Front?

@Shelagh Web In Front is still one of my favorite 7"s. That was a big "hit" the year I was there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/12/16 10:27pm Kat in Chicago:

@brian That is an awful lot of cool dudeness in one studio there. But call in anyway, I'd say.
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 10:27pm chris_in_space:

What a great show tonight. Good tunes, cool on-mic vibes. Didn't realize that David was the same guy I heard on the CBC a couple years ago, as the artisanal pencil sharpener, and back then I didn't realize he was the same guy who penned Get Your War On/Filing technique. It's all coming together now, as one of my favourite singles by Polvo plays on.
  Wed. 10/12/16 10:29pm Shelagh:

@Kat I wasn't there; I was in CT in the early 90s, but had a friends who introduced me to them much later. But he had great taste in music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/12/16 10:29pm Kat in Chicago:

I didn't put all that together at first either! I remember the artisanal pencil sharpener interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/12/16 10:30pm efd:

hey everyone! Great to see all the comments, and glad you're enjoying the show! Please allow me to remind you it's Silent Fundraiser time here at WFMU - we're hoping to raise some $$$ to help offset the impending departure of JM in the AM, so please pledge what you can:
thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/12/16 10:32pm Kat in Chicago:

Haha, I should mention that two of my co-dishwashers were Jimbo Mathus (then of Metal Flake Mother, Squirrel Nut Zippers were just getting started when I left) and Eric Bachmann. Super nice guys, both of them.

Also, what EFD said.

What?!? That's amazing. I love everything he does. I saw him with Neko Case this spring.
  Wed. 10/12/16 10:34pm herb.nyc:

vg music, nice talking too. I've seen david rees do pencil thing at BandN (I gave a ny transit pencil to someone to give to him; there's a pencil store just blocks from me!) and a talk at Housingworks where his "bayonet " umbrella was mentioned. Love his Get Yr War On. Oh, DHall turned 70 this week.

At start of song, I thought it was Dust. ---Oh Nachum, come back. All is forgiven. (True story: 2 yrs ago I was walking in lower east side w my Moses orange wfmu tee on. Man in car sees me, yells "hey you, you, where'd you get that shirt?" We talk; it was Nachum! He took a pic)

  Thu. 10/13/16 9:35pm Mark from Illinois:

Bert Sommer was one of the opening acts at Woodstock, and did not make the movie or albums. He had a mid-chart hit in 1970, "We're All Playing in the Same Band" which I always remembered.
