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!

  9:01pm G:

Best of FTW~!
  9:02pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)
Happy New Year :)
  9:02pm steve:

woo hoo
  9:02pm Danne D:

Starting with the '10s as we pretty much always do here on the Evan Funk Davies show
  9:07pm Holly in NC:

Late already :-( Hi EFD, G, Danne, & Steve! Back asap, have to pack up & drive.
I'm imagining Wicked Lady. Does the reissue add anything to the original lp?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm efd:

Hi steve, Danne, G and Holly! Thanks for tuning in! Holly, I'm not sure offhand if any of the tracks on that album are bonus tracks.
  9:13pm PB:

The Moe Tucker collection on Sundazed was great. The Flying Nun compilation (Tally Ho!) was good. The Roxy Music and Joni Mitchell boxes were great (unless you owned all of them already).
  9:14pm Mike East:

trying to convince my baby that wfmu is better than radio static. White noise is kind of her thing right now. Let's see how she digs on the efd show
  9:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Numerical trivia - 2013 is not a prime number. 2011 was the last prime number year and 2017 will be the next one.
  9:15pm PB:

Wait, this isn't actually the Feelies?
  9:15pm G:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm efd:

Hi PB - it's ALMOST the Feelies!
  9:16pm Holly in NC:

Trypes trypes trypes brilliant song (still packing, so much slower than molasses not even funny)
  9:18pm G:

slower than molasses in january!
  9:18pm Danne D:

Now it's time for the Best Theme Song of this or any year :)
  9:18pm Danne D:

and that's how it goes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm efd:

Mike, you might have better luck with Bryce's show.

(No offense, Bryce.)
  9:19pm PB:

efd, great start. Keep it going.
  9:20pm Mike East:

actually, she did enjoy a Gateway to Joy fillin a month or so ago, so you're probably right.
  9:21pm steve:

i love countdowns! and lists! the end / beginning of the year is a good time for me.
  9:26pm john:

2013 is easy to figure as composite. Digits add to a multiple of 3. More numerical trivia. 2013 is the first year with four different digits since 1987. Actually a little more obvious than it may look at first, but it's still 26 years.
  9:27pm G:

Radio static is good as part of the mix... Each genre cloys after awhile, and a countergenre cleanses the palate for its sometimes diametrical opposite. And I don't eat the exact same meal every day either!
  9:30pm Michael from the Left Coast:

A big hip hooray for Omnivore Recordings who released the Knack record (as well as a Jellyfish sing along record on record store day) among the many great releases this past year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm efd:

Hi Michael, I'll second that hip hooray! Hi john, thanks for the numerology! And a happy new year to all!
  9:37pm Holly in NC:

@Michael FTLC - Omnivore rocks - sweet, unheralded Ernie Kovacs reissue also!

ooh, Bizarros. OK, I'm going, I'm going (was just emailing w Doug Schulkind, I DO have a semi-excuse..)
  9:37pm john:

It's Math Rock!
  9:46pm steve:

i predict Number 1 will be that UK House collection and efd will denounce rock and power pop and switch permanently to an all house / boogie / 80s freestyle show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm efd:

steve, that's a various artist comp - different list! :D
  9:48pm Danne D:

john's posts tonight sponsored by Math the Band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm efd:

lots of long songs on these reissues - I hope this doesn't mess me up at the end of the show!
  9:49pm Danne D:

I'm glad I finally got around to buying a real pair of headphones so I can better appreciate listening to this show at the Starbucks :)
  9:50pm Paulie B:

I'm shocked (SHOCKED, I tell you!) that "Buttons" is not #1. Though perhaps it's on a separate compilations list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm efd:

Yes, this is the single-artist reissue/compilation section!
  9:52pm sweet cheri:

hiya evan,,danne & holly happy 2013!! i hope you're having fun!!!
  9:52pm Paulie B:

Oh, seeing efd's comment @9:47, it almost certainly is. I should read before posting!
  9:53pm john:

Not to forget Numero's Shoes reissues!
  9:54pm Danne D:

Metz Win! Now here's Evan with the Happy Recap
  9:54pm Dave B:

Poppin in to wish you an HMFNY efd.
  9:55pm Joe B:

The Trypes got the Feelies mach II under way!
  9:55pm Danne D:

Hi cheri, happy new year to you to
  10:00pm sweet cheri:

hi there evan i'm checking in to wish you the best in the new year!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm efd:

Hey Dave B! HMFNY right backatcha! Hi cheri, happy new year to you too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm efd:

Joe B dropping some Feelies science!
  10:03pm jtkantor:

Another great show! If you start to run out of time, you can spin everything at 78 RPM to fit it all in :)
  10:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Cuffs is tops.
  10:07pm Danne D:

Evan was looking for it next to the Hot Rats album...
  10:07pm jtkantor:

Cuffs, indeed, from the People's Republic of Cambridge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm efd:

thanks jtkantor! Also, my contingency plan in case I start running out of time is to simply padlock the doors of the studio so Mary Wing can't get in.
  10:13pm SteveL:

Oh yeah! Getting my second chance at Apache Dropout in Fort Wayne in another month or so. Won't blow it this time.
  10:13pm PB:

This riff sounds a lot like The Modern Lovers track Girl Friend. Great track nonetheless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm efd:

Awesome, SteveL! Yeah don't miss them!
  10:19pm Holly in NC:

Finally here! Hello again EFD & all friends. Finishing up cat rituals, s/b comfortably ensconced under comforter by time EFD announces #1 single.
  10:19pm Danne D:

the NFL has been gracious enough to put any potential 2nd round Bengals playoff game on Saturday of that weekend :)
  10:20pm Danne D:

Hi Holly :)
  10:20pm Holly in NC:

And BTW there's a significant delay between PC & mobile listening, it's freaky!
  10:21pm SteveL:

Cat rituals: I like the sound of that, although its probably not nearly as sexy as it sounds.
  10:22pm Joe B:

Hot Lunch full-length just went in the new bin!
  10:22pm Catbox:

You got it, Steve
  10:24pm Holly in NC:

@SteveL - Nothing sexy. Nada. Unless you are a seriously troubled man (#1 cat currently head butting my butt to get me to stop typing & recommence playtime, that's as sexy as it gets).
  10:25pm Joe B:

Danne D clinches comment of the year on Jan. 2 for Happy Recap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm efd:

Yes! That was a good one, didn't get a chance to acknowledge it earlier.
  10:32pm SteveL:

So, the animal is head-butt butting? This is getting complicated.

Obits at #3! Great cover. Great stuff.
  10:32pm Bill Roe:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm efd:

Hey Bill! I think you're going to be happy with my #1 single too...
  10:34pm Bill Roe:

I think I know what it is!!! :)
  10:34pm Seriously Troubled Quagmire:

@SteveL: Giggity!
  10:36pm Holly in NC:

  10:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The countdowns tonight are better than the countdown to the fiscal cliff and even to the Mayan apocalypse last month.
  10:39pm Droll:

Placing a Mellotron in the #1 spot makes up for Ruckus Roboticus being on any list above BrokeNCYDE.
  10:40pm Bill Roe:

Feb 12th - JACCO GARDNER LP on Trouble In Mind - tour in March & SXSW too!
  10:41pm steve:

love that airhorn
  10:46pm Holly in NC:

Perfect musical background to overstimulate still playful #3 cat with the ever so frustrating laser pointer. The beasts are wearing me OUT tonight, they may get an unscheduled catnip party so they'll go crash...
  10:49pm Danne D:

@Joe B Thank You :)
  10:52pm steve:

loved that Gloria Edwards track... wow
  10:54pm Danne D:

That premium was ridiculously good :)
  10:54pm SteveL:

Holly: Drugs ARE the answer.
  10:54pm Danne D:

This is wonderful :)
  10:55pm G:

My favorite off that Michael S. premium...
  10:56pm Catnip:

These are your cats.

These are your cats on drugs.

Any questions?
  10:56pm tomk:

Just wanted to check in from the West coast. Looking forward to listening to this on repeat tomorrow all day long. Happy New Year everyone!
  10:56pm SteveL:

This comp could be a regular seller in support of WFMU. I regret not getting it last year (although I adore my CanCon comp.)
  11:01pm Holly in NC:

Laser pointer = bath salts, catnip = medicinal marijuana
  11:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Wow, those Sergio Valente's ARE fresh!
  11:05pm Holly in NC:

Ooh, I'd forgotten about this Profile comp, nice.
  11:05pm Paulie B:

So much for freshness being self-evident.
  11:06pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Ah Profile Records!
  11:07pm Holly in NC:

Noah makes efd's list twice, excellent!
  11:09pm Matt Damon:

  11:10pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Wanna buy a bridge?
  11:11pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Wanna buy a bridge?
  11:12pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious best comp ever?
  11:12pm michael shelley:

Thanks EFD! You're a man of taste.
  11:13pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly Aw yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm efd:

Michael, it's my pleasure! Efforts like that should be rewarded.

oh, what up Matt Damon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm efd:

and greetings Barkevious! Didn't see you sneak in there!
  11:18pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Wouldn't miss it.
  11:20pm SteveL:

Michael Shelley: You are a fan-damn-tastic DJ. Keep it up!
  11:21pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Wow--what a track!
  11:24pm Paulie B:

Careful, Evan. White Hills might take up 20 minutes of the remaining 37 by themselves!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm efd:

I'm playing the shortest song on the album!
  11:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

White Gills obviously taking their cues from the Ace Frehleysolo album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm efd:

next band is another one with a lot of long songs...
  11:29pm michael shelley:

This #9 is a #1
  11:30pm keving:

A loop of the intro to this Explorers Club song would have made nice bed music for this show, combined with a Casey Kasem impersonation.
  11:32pm Holly in NC:

I think I know 1 & 2, we shall see....
  11:35pm steve:

i have a feeling i know what #1 is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm efd:

Holly, you might know the albums, but do you know the order?
  11:39pm Danne D:

EFD's bests are so good you can't contain 'em in one show :D
  11:40pm Holly in NC:

oops my #2 guess at #6, drat
  11:40pm SteveL:

Danne D: Yeah, pretty sure he's gonna boxcar real bad around midnight.
  11:40pm Joe B:

I gotta remember to wait until after your best-o-the-year show before filing my best-of-the-year list!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm efd:

Four songs to go (after this), 15 minutes.......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm efd:

steve, are you confident enough in your #1 prediction to share it?
  11:46pm SteveL:

steve: Place your answer in a sealed envelope.
  11:46pm steve:

i have a feeling its Gap Dream... ???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm efd:

steve, your guess has been recorded.
  11:47pm Carnac the Mysterious:

I did not *know* that!
  11:48pm Holly in NC:

@steve - GD my feeling as well, but I sure missed #2 ,,,
  11:48pm Danne D:

retroactively yay Adam Warrock :)
  11:49pm Danne D:

And the #1 album - Tales From Topographic Oceans....
  11:49pm Carnac the Mysterious:

@Danne: Sorry, thanks for playing.
  11:50pm steve:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm efd:

OK, now I think I might run short!
  11:51pm SteveL:

I love the Liminanas more every time I hear them. Every song.
  11:52pm Bill Roe:

>AHEM< BRAND NEW Liminanas single out on Trouble In Mind NOW - JUST SAYING
  11:52pm Carnac the Mysterious:

I predict that at 12:02AM Thursday efd will be winging it.
  11:53pm Holly in NC:

Liminanas lp is great. Might I shout out an 'efd-type" lp that efd didn't get into, which w/b the Aallah-Las?
Dark-horse dbs!
  11:53pm SteveL:

I have no complaints with the top four (not that I object to any of the others.) Yes, I have made the obvious assumption re. #1
  11:56pm Danne D:

UGH coffee show closing :( I have to catch #1 on the 'chive I think UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH

Thanks for a great show EFD :) Have a great night everyone :)
  11:57pm Danne D:

(Congrats to Gap Dream though) :D
  11:57pm SteveL:

Midwest. Represent!
  11:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good work on fitting in the 40 tunes and some banter in your 180-minute time slot. They were all great songs.
  11:58pm steve:

amazing show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm efd:

thanks everyone, and thanks to Mary Wing for letting me steal a couple of her minutes! Stay tuned for her show!
