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!

  11:10pm poodle:

  11:10pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Ah Holly and the Italians--one of the great artists that few people know
  11:14pm toni daytona:

  11:19pm toni daytona:

  11:27pm efd:

hi everyone! Happy birthday, Toni D - long time no see.
  11:29pm toni daytona:

thank you efd so could you please play some k.c for me???
  11:38pm Amanda:

I believe that Brothers Johnson song was covered by Quincy Jones in like 1990, which is the reason why I know it. (Hangs head in shame)
  11:41pm Jenine Bressner:

I turned the radio on as Q-Feel was playing, and I was so psyched! I searched for that record for years, after hearing it in "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" as a kid.
  11:44pm toni daytona:

it's too bad you didn't meet our cartoonist greg evans,,you know the one who does LUANN.,,efd
  11:48pm efd:

cool Jenine, glad you enjoyed hearing it!

Amanda, Quincy Jones produced those Brothers Johnson albums in the 70s so it's not much of a stretch that he'd've covered them also. Not terribly imaginative, though.

Toni, I didn't actually meet any cartoonists. Also, no KC tonight I'm afraid. Ironically, I had that LP with me last week, but don't have it tonight.
  11:54pm toni daytona:

well i'm off to bed efd thank you for the birthday wishes and the great company,,,i have a big ahead of me 2morrow,,,g'nite,,,,evan see you soon=)
  11:56pm Amanda:

Howlies are comin' back to town! Happy summer to us all!
  12:10am toni daytona:

i'm sorry efd this birthday disco diva is signin off,,,g'nite evan,,,
  12:18am efd:

ok Toni, have a good night!
  12:40am jk:

anyone interested in endtables on vinyl? grew up in louisville around this time, endtables, dickbrains, strict 9, babylon dance band. pretty sure i still have the ep somewhere and maybe a track on a compilation ep.
  12:46am efd:

how many vinyl releases did they have, jk? I totally missed them back in the day...
  12:53am jk:

i think it was only two. if i'm not mistaken, the one i have (which has the same cover as the cd) has 4 tracks and then maybe another single. i have one or two e.p.'s from louisville around then and they may have had a track on one of them too.
  12:56am jOEEES:

degobah system is in reference to star wars... Think it's where Yoda lives.
  1:00am efd:

oh jeez, really?! I guess I just outed myself as a non-Star Wars nerd.

jk, thanks for the Endtables info... cool that you've got that stuff, what a great band!
  1:07am jk:

yeah, it was a fun time. also, didn't mean to make it look like i was selling it, i've held on too long to let it go now.
  1:47am Michael from the Left Coast:

Steve Marriott--a man who could do no wrong (except maybe smoking in bed) but certainly as great as any musically
  1:50am efd:

Agreed, Michael.
  1:53am TRST:

oh. wow. i can type to the dj in real time. awesome.

HEY. in 2006 someone on WFMU played a song called "Mellow Boy" by a band called Hot Love, or vice versa. i have searched for it on the internet ever since, even willing to pay money to hear it again, but no luck. any chance you know what i'm talking about?
  1:55am TRST:

also i usually love your show.
thanks for doing it.
  1:57am efd:

hey thanks, TRST! Not sure what song that is offhand - have you tried the playlist search engine? http://wfmu.org/searchadv.php
  2:00am TRST:

  3:00pm rory:

I really like RVIVR. Thanks for introducing them to me. Disagree with the emo comment earlier. But even if it was, who cares? As long as the music is good, genre is irrelevant. Hoping to see them in Seattle.
  2:56pm Stephen Rader:

Endtables? If anyone wants to chat about the endtables, I grew up with them, and still talk to them occassionally alex, and would love to chat about them....
