Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from March 14, 2018 Options

efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

It's my second and final show of this year's fundraising Marathon! 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, or even better $10/month or more (I said or more), and you'll AUTOMATICALLY get my premium CD QUINTESSENTIAL: Starting With The Seventies V (pictured above), featuring 20 '70s shoulda-been classics, selected from my personal collection and lovingly digitized and sequenced just for you.

PLUS! Pledge $50 or more NOW -- or, even better, $10 a month! -- and get get in the running for my Grand Prize: the Friends Of EFD 7" 4-pack, featuring records from Terry Malts, Ultimate Painting, Zerodent, and Stag!
ONE lucky pledger will win FOUR 7-inch records at the end of tonight's show! Will it be you? Not unless you pledge $50 or more RIGHT NOW to get in the running! Pledge NOW before you forget! Thank you!

Now I can't get Rick, Vyvyan, Mike and Neil out of my head. That show had some great music guests, too.

I was so happy when I got The Young Ones on DVD.

And then, much later, The Comic Strip. If you don't know the Comic Strip, but love The Young Ones, look for it.

I second a vote for Comic Strip

Such a great show, EFD is the best, so stoked to hear Randy B tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/14/18 10:15pm Scraps:

Rick, Vyvyan, Neil (not playing those characters), and Alexei Sayle, plus Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French, Robbie Coltrane, Peter Richardson, etc! with every show a different self contained short film. Some of the them are just great

"Reach Out In The Darkness" was Friend and Lover (I was thinking Spanky and Our Gang but I looked it up). I remember Friends of Distinction for "Grazing In The Grass", and they had one other hit I can't remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/14/18 10:48pm joe:

Friends of Disttinction
3 Charting singles
Grazing in the Grass #1
Love or Let Me Be Lonely #6
Going in Circles #15

"Love or Let Me Be Lonely' was the one I was trying to think of, has a really cool chorus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/14/18 10:51pm Kat in Chicago:

DougInDallas, I'm looking forward to that record bag too.

I pledge to Tom’s show during 3 Marathons. Yet Tom blocked me on Twitter
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/14/18 10:58pm Ralphine:

I like Paul Davis's version of Love or Let Me Be Lonely better than I like Friends of Distinction's. I know y'all care.

I don't know Paul Davis's version, so I'm curious!

Street Eaters? In German class in college, my suitemate mocked us by saying "ich esse strasse" constantly, I eat streets. Not even he knew why he was saying that.

Come on folks, let's get EFD to his goal!!!
  Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/14/18 11:02pm Julie M:

You guys make the annual pledge drive so fun, I have a hard time walking away. I love hearing about the giveaways and who wins them (heck, I've won a couple myself in the past). But walk away I must now. Thanks again, though, Evan, for "Radio Hearts" (and nice to see a goodly amount of them on the comments board). I know it was just part of the theme, but I ask you, where else are you gonna hear Willie Alexander and the Boom Boom Band?
  Wed. 3/14/18 11:12pm Adam West Coaster:

Schaaaaaaaaapling!!!!!

It’s Tom!!!

I'll be honest I came to WFMU post-Best Show..... this is my first time hearing Scharpling on air.... feels special.
