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

Evan 'Slump' Davies? You gotta commence kicking our asses in fantasy baseball soon man!

Meanwhile I still can't quite figure how all my good pitchers are playing lousy and all my lousy hitters are playing good :)

Danne D
  Wed. 4/22/09 12:40am cheri:

thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart evan!!!!!!
  Wed. 4/22/09 12:42am Danne D:

I bet even the phone book sounds good over a 12-bar blues progression :)
  Wed. 4/22/09 12:50am Joe:

You ain't never heard the "Can't Find My Baby's Number" blues?
  Wed. 4/22/09 12:51am Danne D:

hrm too sleepy to answer that joe :)

Okay even this comments section would sound good with the 12-bar blues backing it ;o)
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:09am stingy d:

i think i saw dj trouble today. but i was on the go. dean & deluca... 11th/university. whatchyou think?
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:19am Danne D:

You've moved up 7 points, efd. Moving you from 12th all the way up to...uh...12th.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:20am Danne D:

I don't believe it, efd!

Btw, I geeked out and paid the 10 bucks for the stat tracker thingy - hence the up to the minute update.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:23am efd:

thanks, Danne. Yeah, I am *really* behind! It'll take a lot more than 7 points for me to climb out of the cellar.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:24am Joe:

I just discovered this song over Easter break! We found the 45 at my Grandma's house.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:26am Danne D:

Well I'm sure you'll come around, EFD. Enjoying hearing the source of the league name.
y's are in :) Evan Funk Davyes. :)

Anyway, night sir (for the message board) - the tunes will carry me to sleepyland!
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:27am stingy d:

anyone else's sound cut out?
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:28am aharon:

Well, if anyone wants to indulge my penchant for ill-advised fantasy trades, have at it. They've gotten me all the way to #9! Otherwise, continue rocking on.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:28am stingy d:

bah... i dunno... all betta
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:29am aharon:

On a diff note, has anyone seen Jeremy Jay live? I am likely going to the Fri show and want to make sure that it's not gonna be a Cat Power or GWAR experience.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:36am Joe:

I haven't seen him live, but I'm willing to bet you won't be wasting your 10 dollars on a singer having a nervous breakdown or soaking you with yogurt shot out of giant inflatable phallus.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:38am stingy d:

catastrophe power.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:41am aharon:

Well, the venue is BYOG(YF)IP, so it's kinda up to me, I guess.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:41am Joe:

THAT was a hell of a segue.
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:42am stingy d:

anybody know how much that is? 3,500円(内税) or what that currency is called?
  Wed. 4/22/09 1:46am aharon:

If you go into a dept store, yes, but they're much cheaper from the vending machines (which are everywhere).
  Wed. 4/22/09 2:00am Joe:

Great song for a last song!

Great show, thanks.
  Wed. 4/22/09 2:01am aharon:

  Wed. 4/22/09 2:03am efd:

thanks Joe, aharon and everyone else! See you next week!
