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.

@chris-in-space: I didn't mean anything R-rated by that statement, just that efd plays Canadian artists like he's a '70s Toronto DJ at 4 am:

  Wed. 12/7/16 9:20pm P-90:

...and I'm thinking "Beaver Bin? Wasn't that a regular feature in the old Penthouse magazine...?"

Yeah Rats! Hey efd!

It's not my fault that particular radio jargon sounds like the name of a stripper bar in Windsor.

@Gaylord Cool link! I love it. And just so ya know, my "hey-ohh" was intended to sound like Ed McMahon

I think they just changed the name of the field that the Oregon State Beavers play on from that a few years back.

I don't follow football though.

whose got the hi-score on Pinout!,?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 9:50pm efd:

@Bronwyn, please accept my apologies! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 9:51pm efd:

Good call, smiler.

Definitely not me with the high Pinout score, I have low video game aptitude in general.

efd does great interviews
  Wed. 12/7/16 10:15pm Lyle:

David Bowie. I shared a stage with him back around 1981. I was playing third trombone for Jack Wagner, who was trying to parlay his TV success (General Hospital) into a music career. We opened a few shows for Bowie on his Scared Monster tour. I could tell right away he didn't like us. Fancy was the word he used. "I don't fancy them." Still, he was a gentleman and he would nod as he passed and smile. He gave us all chromium Mylar™ balloons on our final night, and a signed card with many unique personalizations. That really touched Jack. Best of all, he invited us allonstage for his encore, a rousing version of Rebel Rebel in Eb, as I recall. Jack borrowed my leather coat and he swung it over his shoulder as Elvis might have. It seemed to please David.
  Wed. 12/7/16 10:16pm Lyle:

Sorry for my typos. My fingers get so stiff with this colder weather.
  Wed. 12/7/16 10:17pm herb.nyc:

I just read a January fb post from Bob George, and how David Bowie was sooo nice at an Archive of Contemporary Music sale party. (Note- Archive has its biannual sale now, thru December 18, in TriBeCa)
  Wed. 12/7/16 10:18pm V Priceless:

Rebel Rebel in Eb? What a pain in the ass! : )
  Wed. 12/7/16 10:22pm V Priceless:

Nothing weirder than Peter Tork covering 'Diamond Dogs'.

@Lyle, that's a great story! Thanks for sharing it.

This just came to me- a Best Show w Jon calling Tom and then saying 53rd and 3rd is about a Pottery Barn!
  Wed. 12/7/16 11:11pm Michael from the Left Coast:

the four songs on the EP with the Records first album were abracadabra, 1984 (Spirit), Rock'n' Roll Love Letter (Tim Moore/Bay City Rollers) and Have you Seen Your Mother Baby (Standing in the Shadows) (the Rolling Stones)
  Wed. 12/7/16 11:11pm Stevel:

Stealth listening tonight. Great show, per usual.
