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.

Listener comments!

  11:07pm Sybil:

Yow! More verification of Big Bang Theory.
  11:13pm jackie burkhardt:

whuts shakin evan?? yes on with the show,,btw july 12th is my birthday WHOOOOOHOOOOO i'll still be young!!!!=)=)=)
  11:14pm Randy in NC:

Maybe the Muggs will be the only band from that show that goes anywhere... Thanks to you...
  11:16pm efd:

lord knows i'm trying, Randy! happy early birthday, JB/TD!
Sybil, i'm certainly not going to deliberately try to prove you're wrong, of course... :)
  11:20pm toni d.:

evan--PLEASE play some cheap trick for us ty ever soooo much,,hugs & kisses OXOXOXO
  11:21pm Michael Ackerman:

Hey EFD--nice call that Sham 69
  11:21pm efd:

of course now you've got me thinking I can get away with anything...
  11:21pm Sybil:

los pueblos unidos jam&#225;s ser&#225;n vencidos!

Or something like that.
  11:24pm Sybil:

Oh, hang diacriticals, anyway.

Ooooh, want to see what I got on the subway? Can I post a link? Let's see if this works:
  11:27pm jackie/toni:

efd--please play DREAM POLICE=)=)=)
  11:28pm Droll:

. o O ( 25 year old vinyl, through MP3 conversion and the drums on that Starship tune still sound like $1EUR -- USD are sad things... )
  11:37pm Laurie:

Lion update: They've been moving the cam position around. The nursery is quite big! Big enough to accommodate a small stand of large trees for use as a scratching pole.
  11:39pm efd:

Sybil, that's a great poster!
Laurie, there are 4 baby raccoons (and their Mom) living under my garage - I'm gonna set up a webcam of my own!
  11:43pm Sybil:

Speaking of Yo-yo... he's still a free agent AFAIK.

Oh - Raccoon babycam! Yeah!
  11:46pm batgirl:

best birthday wishes to jackie & toni
  11:48pm efd:

i only wish i were clever enough to have played "yo-yo" for Julian
  11:48pm ross:

this song kicks ass
  11:51pm Sybil:

Are jackie and toni one and the same person? Or two separate people? I'm so confused... Happy birthday to you*!

* Is "you" singular or plural?
  11:53pm Joe:

The plural of "you" is "youse"
  12:00am Droll:

In Pittsburgh they say "Yinz", which is a bastardized contraction of "You Ones". I think TD is a reforming comma abusing automata triggered by station staff playing with the computer in the library.
[The Cars rock -- Thx!]
  12:00am Sybil:

Joe, right you are.
  12:08am Joe:

So what you're saying Droll, is that TD is like Skynet.
  12:10am fan:

This is the vivian girls? I love them. And they must love the Feelies.
  12:16am Laurie:

Serious cuteness: http://atvs.vg.no/player/?id=16995

One of the cubs is grooming the other one -- licking the other one's chinny! And another one is using the one getting groomed as a pillow.
  12:19am toni d.:

sorry folks--only evan knows who i really am rite efd??=)=)=)
  12:21am Laurie:

I know who you are, George.
  12:21am reid:

yaay for screaming females!!
  12:28am marina:

laurie why are you being mean to toni? goodnight evan
  12:29am Laurie:

What? Being mean would involve revealing your last name, too, but I'm not going to do that.
  12:30am Droll:

. o O ( Now if I could only find out who programmed Laurie, I could find the programmer of TD, and then it's a small matter of catching Mr. Mustard in the Library with the Automata )
  12:30am Laurie:

Do you think it's like Rumpelstiltskin? I reveal Toni Daytona's real name, and now his power's gone and he has to go back to wherever it is he dwells.
  12:32am john:

Laurie, only one way to find out....
  12:33am Droll:

[Drum roll... Building anticipation... Pregnant Pause....]
  12:35am Sybil:

If that pause gives birth, we'll have to set up a webcam for the little pauselings.
  12:38am Sybil:

nene records is just an endless source of wonderfulness, isn't it?!
  12:42am Renato (from Brazil):

I'm bored here in my room, please dj, what about any Replacements song from "Pleased To Meet Me" album era?
ps: "Hey Mr. On The Radio, please play my favorite song" (Cheap Trick - On The Radio)
  12:44am john:

black jack was in a powerpop band in the 90s. cool guy.
  12:47am Laurie:

Was Dennis Diken seriously namechecked in that song?? WOW!
  12:48am Joe:

One of my earliest baseball memories is my father screaming obscenities at the television when Mcdowell gave up the walk off home run that knocked the Yanks out of the playoffs in '95. Completely ruined dinner.
  12:49am efd:

he was indeed!
  12:56am efd:

(i'm still chuckling at the pauselings webcam joke, btw)
  1:00am john:

i stand corrected, he appears still to have that band, stickfigure. not bad, either. I can't find the Yankee Flipper NY Post back page anywhere, though, dammit.
  1:10am Laurie:

Oh damn, I was hoping we could hear the Feelies too :(
  1:18am efd:

yeah, unfortunately only Sonic Youth will be broadcast live.
  1:22am Droll:

I can't see anyone trying to bootleg that show... And WFMU never plays bootlegs, so I guess we're S.O.L... Unless, just maybe, a little rule gets bent and...
  1:35am moonlight lady:

evan i want to take this opportunity just to say you rock my summer every tuesday night! ty
  1:52am Droll:

Lovin' this Steinski tune, but I keep expecting it to break in to I Left My Wallet in El Segundo!
  1:55am efd:

i am ashamed of myself for totally sleeping on that Steinski retrospective, it is amazing.
  2:34pm Cyn:

Thanks for the spin Evan!
