Options October 9, 2019: Annual Punk/Post-punk/Power Pop/New Wave college radio daze Throwback Show! part of our HELLRAISER FUNDRAISER!

Listen to this show: MP3 - 128K | | Add or read comments

It's my second show of WFMU's HELLRAISER fundraiser, and once again it's time for me to attempt to recapture my misspent youth and present a reasonable facsimile of my college radio days across the river on WNYU’s New Afternoon Show almost 40 (!!!) years ago. All vinyl, all mine, all from the late ‘70s-early ‘80s, presented in a Top 40 style just like I used to do on WNYU's New Afternoon Show* a long long time ago. You'll hear some of your old favorites and some others that'll become new faves instantly!

And while you're listening please take a moment to show your appreciation for WFMU and my show by making a pledge! If you've already pledged, THANK YOU! Your support is greatly appreciated.

Stay tuned for more special shows this month, and of course please take a moment to Like The Evan "Funk" Davies Show on Facebook and follow me on Twitter! Thank you.!

1982 pep rally at Lincoln HS in Sioux Falls - our band "Urban Blight" performed "Homicide" and it was loud as fuck. Not only were we never asked to perform again - no band was ever allowed to perform during a pep rally there ever again. (We killed it, pardon the pun).

I was also in college (Stony Brook) in late 70s / early 80s and listened to New Afternoon show whenever I could. The show had a strong influence on my musical tastes. I still have some cassettes of the show taped off the radio. Thanks for doing this each year and bringing back great memories

@efd You have any Fad Gadget in your magic bag?

for example the cover says "Bollock Brothers" but the record says "Bollocks Brothers"

As a person who does her radio show in Traktor and plays a lot of 7-8 minute tracks, doing a show with a bunch of 3-minute 7"s sounds utterly exhausting. @Barkevious, I think I still have that LP somewhere.

folks, this rick 12-string power pop thing has haunted me since childhood - i finally broke down and bought a 360/12 and it was *boom* like she was saying to me, "why did it take you so long?" now i have to re-record half of all of the songs i wrote since 1986. worth it.

@Kat When I read of "Eddie's" passing in the Times I discovered that there was an actual That Summer movie and that the subject was really unlikely.

EFD, what was the occasion that Joe Strummer visited WFMU's Kitchen ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/9/19 11:15pm Kat in Chicago:

@Barkevious it's confusing when you look it up, because there's also a movie by that title (minus the exclamation point) about the same sisters that Grey Gardens was about. I finally found info on the right one, which does seem like an odd story en.wikipedia.org...!

“Is Vic There”
“I Could Be Happy”... what classics!
The New Afternoon show turned me onto all of these great tunes, which in turn I corrupted (turned on, converted) a many Bruce freaks, Dead heads, and even some music-less folks into/ onto new wave and punk rock.
Damn APB, another NYU NAS EFD first heard.
Thank you EFD !!
