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.

Delores Hall made my sister delay her exit from my apt by a few mins. She was shocked to her it on the radio. Great job.
Avatar 9:13pm herb.nyc:

Hi all, am listening on 53rd & 3rd. No, Bowery and Kenmare. Oh look, there's Tom Petty! (Never seen him perform, alas)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm efd:

thanks for that info medson, good to know!

hello to herb, Stevel, and JakeG!

Love this song
Avatar 9:22pm herb.nyc:

Wait, how does Evan see listener Loretta? Esp when he facebooks about NO VIDEO during the show? Can he see us all? Well, what tee am I wearing? )just saw a Misfits tee, and Rolling Stones tee)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This is pretty much what ProcolHarum did - but they were hella good @ it!...

herb: Digging your vibe, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Bob in Oakland:

That Billy Nicholls LP is one of my all-time favorites. Now if only someone would reissue it on vinyl.

Please read the liner notes from any Copernicus album next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Lots of things happening at WFMU. Be patient.
  9:42pm ian:

how is there going to be enough time to play every jandek CD?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Three whole hours of music?? How about a nice trashy car commercial...
  9:43pm blahBlahbLah:

..what is music? I forgot
  9:44pm ian:

its the sound coming out of the hole
  9:44pm JakeGould:

Yeah, but Jandek has an annoying voice. #praying4upat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm jmd:

it's not the music, it's the frequency modulation.
  9:45pm ian:

i'm a fan of jandek in small doses. The live shows, while hit or miss, can be really good when he brings in actual musicians to back him
  9:45pm blahBlahbLah:

Joel St Germain hardly ever back announces tracks. He's a pro
  9:46pm ian:

like, actually good, not just good relative to other jandek
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

then go listen to his archives.
  9:47pm ian:

ah its just a fun troll
  9:47pm JakeGould:

In other news, “Cruel Summer” kicks! Thanks!
  9:48pm blahBlahbLah:

can everyone say which bands theyve seen live that begin with the letter P? mine are Pink Floyd, Parliament, Prodigy (the first 3 that come to my mind)
  9:48pm ian:

I agree that efd's mic breaks can seem like they take forever, but then he plays really long sets.
  9:49pm ian:

no p bands here
  9:51pm ian:

I mean, i really like the music so i'm like, get back to it, not that I have any problem with the announcing itself.
  9:51pm blahBlahbLah:

in fairness, EFD is in the top 10 best shows (musically) on WFMU
  9:51pm blahBlahbLah:

Love u Evan
  9:53pm blahBlahbLah:

i'm liking tonights colour scheme too
  9:55pm herb.nyc:

P- I'm wearing a Pernice Bros tee. (About to take off, to get into shower. Turn yr video on, Evan!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Drunken Creep:

Just tuning in, a fine evening to all, enjoying these tracks and the familiar comfort of E"F"DS
  9:57pm blahBlahbLah:

By the way, I meant The Prodigy, not Prodigy from Mobb Deep (who just died) RIP
  9:58pm ian:

so technically that starts with T
  9:59pm blahBlahbLah:

the doesnt count, apart from the the

You know, I’m liking “Look Blue Go Purple”: youtu.be...

  10:19pm JakeGould:

Was compelled to listen to this EXACT Adam Ant track earlier today. On the pulse, EFD!

  10:20pm Stevel:

Still love the percussion. Saw those guys via Bow Wow Wow. So relentless
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Drunken Creep:

EFD did you play Bomb the Bass a few back? Thanks again on that, sounding great here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm efd:

hey Drunken Creep (no offense), that wasn't me! But I'm glad you're enjoying tonight's show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm medson:

efd. Are you into the band Kill West ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm efd:

don't know them, medson. You've stumped me again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Switchblade Batman:

Evening all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm medson:

I like to give homework. : )
  10:40pm herb.nyc:

re Cassettes- I saw a 3tape of Big Star's 3 albums. (On Burger Records?)
  10:42pm andrewb:

i think that los straightjackets cover may outlast the original. so joyfull
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm efd:

yeah, Burger's kind of been leading the cassette resurgence in a way; they've been doing cassette releases of other labels' albums for several years now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Kelly Jones:

Hi Evan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm efd:

Hi Kelly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm medson:

So Whats Hard Gum is a great album too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm efd:

yes it is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Switchblade Batman:

ooh new Wavves. Great choice @EFD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Very nice cover.
  11:17pm herb.nyc:

Sorrows and Promises, made me think of JDenver's "poems, prayers, and promises". I actually made a note to ask Clay Pigeon to play it on his a.m. show. And, he played Jandek today, a snippet. I think I actually heard a herd of stereos turn off then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Kelly Jones:

Good Show Evan! It's always good actually. When I realize you're on the air I think "Oh good! It's EFD!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm efd:

thank you kindly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Kelly Jones:

I love this US Weekly song!
  11:46pm herb.nyc:

DL Byron? I mighta taped a live show of his, aired by WLIR 1980,81ish. (I wonder how to watch that WLIR docu?).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm medson:

thanks for another great show efd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Kelly Jones:

Goodnight Everybody! Time to watch the horror movie I've been saving... 'We Are Still Here'.
