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.

same here TV muted watching game 7
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:19pm Julie M:

Ah, I usually have tv muted but tonight with earplugs for the radio and tv full. Game 7 World Series, and two live sets on Evan's show. Wow.

Julie M: Your commitment is inspiring.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:23pm Julie M:

Actually, Stevel, I like having the radio right in my ear but I can still hear and see the baseball game, so yeah...

Live set from DC/Durham/Brooklyn's own Paranoid Style coming up shortly, then Proper Ornaments live set in about an hour! Whee!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 9:25pm medson:

Cant wait for the live sets
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:29pm Stevel:

What is the name of this set's vibe? Proto-hair-metal-disco-new wavers? Hopefully not. It all hung together very well.

whatever it is i love it. i love anything that sounds like that. does that sound in fact have a name? hmmm

Out in California listening to you live (while watching the World Series on mute) -- looking forward to the live sets!

hi Mike, good to see you here!
medson, thanks for that info! I met my CanCon requirement without even knowing it!
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:37pm Stevel:

Thinking I'm loving Paranoid Style, right out of the gate!

Fort Wayne. On your way to anywhere, pretty much. Just saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 9:37pm medson:

@efd yes you did
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:42pm Joe R.:

It was before my time in Milwaukee but Bad Boy featured the original Cheap Trick vocalist, Xeno http://bit.ly/2gTTfyy
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:42pm A.T.F.:

Who writes the lyrics in TPS..?
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:44pm Julie M:

A little Velvets combined with Bongwater?
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 9:44pm Fuzzy:

I'm searching for my Bongwater...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:45pm efd:

interesting, thanks Joe R.!
A.T.F. I always assume (sometimes incorrectly) that the singer writes the lyrics. I am pretty sure that's the case with Paranoid Style, but not positive. and I didn't ask that during the interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 9:48pm medson:

This is a rockin set
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:48pm efd:

They're really good! I wish they played out more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 9:49pm medson:

Must have been great to watch this live
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:49pm efd:

Their full-length from last year was in my 2016 Best Of, just btw.
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:50pm Mark from Bushwick:

shit, I lived in Milwaukee from 77 to 83, and I remember Bad Boy being pushed on the local Rock station wqfm, but that's all I recall. I think I didn't like them, too mainstream, probably, (I was in art school there at the time.)
I'm liking Paranoid Style
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:51pm Stevel:

Definitely great! I see they're doing a short (humane) west southern tour (Arizona on the 3rd, back to NOLA on the 9th.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 9:52pm efd:

They seem to be very Straight Ahead '70s Rock, which I was not into so much at the time myself but it sounds good to me now! I picked up another LP of theirs too, both at the same used shop. Not sure if the Cheap Trick guy is on either of them.
  Wed. 11/1/17 9:58pm Mark from Bushwick:

I did hear the cut at the top of the show, sorta,( I was doing stuff in my woodshop) and, I was about to switch to listening to an archive, but the first set of your show kept me listening. I'll have to re-listen to Bad Boy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 9:59pm medson:

Im disappointed I didn't know this band
Just ordered their album though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:04pm efd:

@Stevel I don't think those are Paranoid Style tour dates you saw
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:06pm Stevel:

efd: correct. Actually for Overlake. Good catch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:06pm efd:

of course this question is now out of date.

Thought you were saying Mctrouble. Good song.
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:27pm tuskandhusk:

I feel like those drums look better then they sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:28pm efd:

they are not beloved by engineers, from what I understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:28pm efd:

but they look A M A Z I N G
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:29pm Mark from Bushwick:

Now I remember- I just thought the name Bad Boy was incredibly incredibly dumb, so they couldn't be any good!
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:31pm BriJet:

Good evenin' y'all!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 10:31pm Kat in Chicago:

McTrouble sounds like a bad idea for a burger
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 10:36pm Kat in Chicago:

Just now leaving work :( will log back in at home. Fun show so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:36pm efd:

oof, thanks Kat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:37pm efd:

@Mark totally understandable reaction! It is a pretty dumb name... but that's kind of what caught my attention! :)
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:45pm BriJet:

I like this!!! So mellow and groovy!
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:45pm P-90:

Yes, groovy and mellow
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:46pm BriJet:

:)
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:46pm Julie M:

i like Proper Ornaments much. Wanted to go to bed early but the game was on and a cat jumped up on my lap and this band is great. All good tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:50pm efd:

@Julie this is the last song so you might be able to get to bed soon :)
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 10:52pm Julie M:

Ha. Now I'm trapped by the convergence of cat on lap, and Game 7 (which might already be decided but who knows), and the anticipation of what efd will play next. I liked The Paranoid Style too, for the record!
  Wed. 11/1/17 10:57pm sim:

I like this groove
  Wed. 11/1/17 11:12pm Stevel:

How is Ted Leo not larger? Everything is good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:13pm efd:

well, he watches his diet pretty closely I think...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 11:26pm medson:

Take the Courtney and Kurt
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:29pm efd:

Those were the first to go.
  Wed. 11/1/17 11:29pm Clay:

Off Broadway is another under-appreciated band in that Bad Boy/Cheap Trick/Pezband/Shoes zone. Same part of the country. They did two LPs on Atlantic. Sounding great, EFD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 11:30pm Kat in Chicago:

Not surprised. No le poisson rouge this week?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:31pm efd:

Hi Clay! Isn't it past your bedtime? :)
I'm going to toss Fotomaker onto that same pile. Lovingly toss, I should add.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:31pm efd:

No Le Poisson Rouge, Kat! Maybe next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 11:32pm Kat in Chicago:

Yes, Clay should be asleep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 11:33pm Kat in Chicago:

I like this jam
  Wed. 11/1/17 11:35pm Clay:

Fotomaker, yes. Wally Bryson. That drifts into the Cleveland orbit ala Raspberries. Fringe mentions: Michael Stanley Band. Frank Yancovic, Glass Harp. Without Phil Keaggy, would life itself have been possible? Keep rocking'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 11:37pm medson:

Its been a long day good night all
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:37pm Julie M:

Aw, Evan, just say "Le Poisson Rouge" on air, apropos of nothing, and I can be released. And yes, how Clay can be up now is ponderous. Or Medson for that matter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:37pm efd:

'night, Medson! Thanks for listening and checking in.
  Wed. 11/1/17 11:38pm Clay:

Night Meds!

These guys played a week or two ago in BK I believe, missed the show. Whomp whomp.

Yes, the Sparks set on Brian's show was amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:54pm efd:

I still can't believe they were here!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/1/17 11:58pm Kat in Chicago:

lol thank you. now Julie can go to sleep
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/1/17 11:59pm Julie M:

Ahhh, I am released. Fun show, thanks, efd. And the game is final. I don't mind that it was Houston. Good night, good night.
