efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

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.

Greetings @efd and Funkaholics. It's good to be here for another Wednesday. Bringin' that Sly Stone sound early. I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm efd:

Happy to have you here, chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Fuzzy:

Sounds like "mimic the grass hounds" -- I can get with that.
Avatar 9:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Of greets & mondegreens !
  9:17pm P:

I have a feeling one of these tunes is going to appear on the premium.
Avatar 9:17pm glenn:

i think i saw polyrock in 1980. they opened for television, if memory serves.
Avatar 9:18pm glenn:

maybe 1981. it was a long time ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm efd:

that sounds very likely, glenn!
Avatar 9:20pm Hoboken Jack:

Hello EFD and all Funksters worldwide!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm efd:

P, not an unreasonable guess - but incorrect!
Avatar 9:25pm Loretta:

good evening all.... nice to be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm efd:

greetings Loretta, Jack, Fuzzy, RRN63, and Glenn! Thank you all for tuning in tonight.
  9:26pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I would like it if this Recondite song was on the premium. Or any of the others so far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm efd:

no Young Pope fans out there, I guess?
  9:32pm Julie M Brooklyn:

HBO Young Pope, dare I ask? It does sound like a good name for a band...
  9:32pm greyhoos:

Hi all, evening Evan. Tuning in late, seeing I missed a number of good tunes. If I recall, didn't one member of Little Sister become Mrs. Leon Russell a few years later?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Dave in Vermont:

That's where I heard that!
Avatar 9:39pm glenn:

mary mcreary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Dave in Vermont:

I have watched 5 episodes, and knew I had heard the recondite track, which is when I tuned in here.
  9:41pm Julie M Brooklyn:

The HBO series I've watched have had some great music. Who knew?

  9:47pm Jgetsfresh:

This song f'ing rocks
  9:49pm Stevel:

Praise the airwaves, it's Wednesday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm chris_in_space:

Agree with @Jgetsfresh. Shifters tune kicks AYSHE!. Sounds like some Swell Maps business or something.
  9:56pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Friends :)

Used to LOVE the rat nightclub and Kenmore square when it was cool. Saw GangGreen there back in the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm chris_in_space:

thanks for the quick links @JakeGould. Paul Bruno has got it going on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Brian in New Orleans:

Ahhhh the days of being an art student at Mass Art. Remember the Isabella Stewart gardner Museum robbery happened then. There was yellow caution tape on that side door the next day.
  10:11pm Mike tp:

This hold on to love just reminds me a little of ALAN PARSONS. NICE
  10:12pm quietlyartistic:

A little late tuning in, but good Wednesday night to y'all. What did I miss?
Avatar 10:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Recently 1st heard of Peter Skellern on a Beatle-themed podcast re his connections to the Fab4.
...Nights long ago trying to pull in WBCN on my little radio up here in the hills of NewHampshire: Jerry Goodwin 'The Duke of Madness' messing w/ my dreams in the wee hours...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm efd:

YES Mike tp, was thinking the same on this listen.
  10:12pm Stevel:

Unblinking Ear podcast is dynamite.
  10:14pm Danne D:

This is so good EFD :) thank you :)
Avatar 10:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - Unblinking Ear podcast : feeds.feedburner.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm chris_in_space:

Oh this new Toby Sprout album is so good. Feels good to have a proper LP from him in 2017.
  10:26pm Mike tp:

Never heard of Tobin But it's fine pop.
Avatar 10:40pm Hoboken Jack:

Hints of Love and Rockets' "So Alive"?

This show is starting to redline. Just when I thought it was hitting hard–bam! It hit harder. So damned good!
  11:12pm sufferwords:

kaboom efd!!!
Avatar 11:16pm Hoboken Jack:

If Young Pope gets a triple shot, maybe THE BEDAZZLER does too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm efd:

haha... maybe I'll have to save that for the marathon!
Avatar 11:18pm Roberto:

Good to go, thanks EFD.
Avatar 11:19pm farmer pete:

This song isn't so wonderful. Sorry.
Avatar 11:20pm quietlyartistic:

AWWWW YEAH! Bedazzler time!
  11:20pm greyhoos:

I guess I was only partially paying attention to previous airings of this tune in weeks past, because I thought the singer kept proclaiming "I'm Jimmy Castor." Which I knew he wasn't.
Avatar 11:21pm Hoboken Jack:

Donnie Iris, the pride of Pittsburgh!
  11:21pm Stevel:

All the hits! All the time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Chop Scott:

EFD! Thanks for always delivering the goods--I'm listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm efd:

always happy to know you're out there, Scott!
Avatar 11:26pm farmer pete:

Now we're talking.
Avatar 11:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...another thing besides tickets you wait too long for - a single bad song tonight...
Avatar 11:56pm Hoboken Jack:

Another top notch show EFD, thanks so much!
  11:57pm Danne:

Thanks for another awesome show EFD :) Once again you have bedazzled us all! Until next time Funk Friends :)
