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.

Hi efd! The Green Pajamas' original version of Kim the Waitress is one of my fave songs ever!

I hate music! What is it worth - ?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Uncle Michael:

I'm part of the quiet crowd. I'm working on Friday's show. Loving the music.

So glad to be listening tonight! It's been awhile.

Pugh doesn't stink at all! I liked that ambulansen song ...

A lineman for the Dallas Cowboys in the 70s was Jethro Pugh. Number 75, he was.

Sounds like you've got a bunch of amazing shows lined up for Funktober Evan :)
  9:45pm Ike:

Hey hey! Listening from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Sadly it's raining but the music is cheering me up a bit.

this is the week that I finally remembered to register an account. I always forgot that I only had a FOT one and not an FMU one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

ooh, totally jealous Ike!
Avatar 9:48pm Loretta:

hi all! great to be back in NY & listening to some great music ~ thanks Evan
  9:52pm mildred:

I just saw the SM Boys on Sunday, great show!
  9:55pm Ike:

Don't be too jealous, the weather is brutal so far and we just overpaid for seemingly week-old lobster. If you ever come here, bring provisions!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm osvi:

The Wrong Words in San Francisco for 7 bucks! Can't beat that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm efd:

that's a good deal, Osvi!

Ike, hope the weather turns around for you.

Hate to be the bearer of good tidings, but the Tribe just knocked the Yankees officially out of postseason contention.

8( Why does this have to be in October? 8(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm efd:

On the plus side, members of the Yankees will be able to attend.
Avatar 10:22pm Danne D:

Back in the day, EFD was a Gilder-teen :)
Avatar 10:28pm Holly in NC:

Rock & roll '78, indeed. Now THAT was a good year for this Yankees fan!
  10:29pm john:

That was a Yankee team anyone but Evan could root for!
Avatar 10:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- realizing I know the name 'Willie Alexander' more than actually do the music: very 'T.Rex' this, if already into Punk years...
  10:30pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi Evan. Looking forward to some new (Sing Sing) kicks next week - if you know what I mean!
Avatar 10:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'If He's So Great' is - great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm efd:

hi Eddy, got your email btw - thanks for the tips!

Holly/john I prefer to focus on the non-baseball aspects of 1978, thank you very much. :)

a nice reminder that this is the last week of the EFDHHDYDTYFBBL and that once again I will not be champion :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Uncle Michael:

I haven't heard this one before.
Avatar 10:37pm Danne D:

Probably the hardest Army sell I've heard Harry do
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Stevel:

This explains a lot. Apparently, I neglected to officially become a man. Perhaps its not too late?
  10:38pm john:

Is this a good time to talk about just how creepy this song is?
Avatar 10:38pm Danne D:

Whoa this dude got tricked by some underage girl
Avatar 10:38pm dB from Oakland:

THE ARMY MAKES YOU A MAN!! Hopefully a better man than Gary Puke-ett
Avatar 10:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...goes w/ those Union Gap uniforms I suppose...a great record that's played too much...
Avatar 10:39pm Danne D:

Funny to have this song after "The Army Makes You A Man"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

And Gary makes you a woman.
Avatar 10:40pm Danne D:

Your mother wonders where you are, well maybe, cuz it's 1968 and it's not exactly the golden age of parenting...
  10:44pm john:

Oh funny, don't think I ever saw Dan's piece on that very topic. Funny. And super creepy.
Avatar 10:55pm dB from Oakland:

"TV shows are full of holes and accidents" ... yet another band giving their 2 cents on Breaking Bad
  10:56pm Jarrod Saltalamacchia:

Man, dope. Keep rollin' bro.
Avatar 11:01pm dB from Oakland:

Wasn't there a big motown hit about "Bernadette"? This Bernadette's another Rosanna Arquette ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm efd:

You too, Salty!
Avatar 11:01pm dB from Oakland:

Milwaukee Funk!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Stevel:

Love Pin-Ups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Uncle Michael:

Is it wrong that I like The Darkkness and all this modern glam puts me in mind of them? I don't care...Justin Hawkins was fun on Top Gear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm efd:

I certainly don't think so! I loved The Darkness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Stevel:

World Domination=Best extended rock scream in a while.

The Darkness=The Shit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm efd:

so weird how they suddenly detuned right in the beginning of the song like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Uncle Michael:

Good. I get the sense they get a bad rap. I thought Hawkins' cover of "This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us" was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Uncle Michael:

I have to get this Verma.
Avatar 11:34pm dB from Oakland:

woops ... think I heard a speed down-shift on that Ragnarawk ... I liked the fast version, but this sounds cool too :)
  11:36pm kiemzi:

I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about, dB.
Avatar 11:38pm Danne D:

I'm checking out of board land but thanks for your usual great show EFD :)
Have a good night everyone :)
  11:38pm trish:

I was going to say, I heard this on another show recently and doesn't it sorta-a-kinda-bit sound like Neu? But it was on your show, Evan, few weeks ago.
Avatar 11:39pm steve:

arg, i get here late and miss the PCA John Foxx remix... ive been pointing out (mostly to Duane) the lack of PCA on FMU for over a year now!

Oh, SM Airhorn, how you stimulate the senses.

I'm heading slumberward. Thanks for the excellent ear-chow, Evan.
