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.

Hey Evan! Hoping for a suitably Buc-centric set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm efd:

(does that count?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Stevel:

Wow. 1978. Might have guessed earlier, except for the electronica keys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm efd:

oh, my second comment is a response to my own first comment, although it looks like it could have been a response to john's comment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Stevel:

Re. "First": Seems like insider trading.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm steve:

oh yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Stevel:

Loving the bass work. Is it anyone we'd know?
  9:06pm montgomery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm efd:

Bass: Mo Foster
Avatar 9:07pm Holly in NC:

Hi efd, john & Steve1!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm efd:

another credit from that Don Ray LP:
"Special thanks to: Lene Lovich for her ideas and her help."
  9:07pm john:

It would only be a response to my comment if Don Ray were from the burgh, which he categorically is not.

Hi Holly!
  9:08pm john:

Mrs Suggs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Alex of Chicago:

This comment is in response to Evan's third comment about the first and second comments. Hi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Bette Bright's cover of "When You were Mine" is the greatest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Stevel:

Hey Holly!

Lene Lovich, eh? Neato. (May have to look up Mo Foster now.)
Avatar 9:12pm Holly in NC:

Thank goodness someone (you!) is playing something other than Sour Milk Sea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm efd:

Sour Milk Sea is pretty great though.
  9:16pm montgomery:

mo played with ringo and jackie with george hmmm nice post beatles ties efd
Avatar 9:18pm Holly in NC:

Would love to hear Ringo's 'It Don't Come Easy' to assuage my pain re. Yankees' end of season/Derek's retirement. Yes, I know I'm in hostile territory ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Stevel:

montgomery: Nice! That explains why he stood out. He's probably done a lot of work.

Don Ray=Raymond Donnez
Avatar 9:19pm Holly in NC:

Or. more cowbell :-)
  9:19pm john:

These guys have a great second career ahead of them as a Humble Pie tribute band.

Hello everyone!
Avatar 9:21pm Holly in NC:

Hello @amewcow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm fleep:

Thuddy long haired greetings to everyone.
Avatar 9:22pm Holly in NC:

Greetings, @fleep. Have I told you recently how much I love your avatar?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm fleep:

@Holly Even if it belongs to a Dodgers fan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Fuzzy:

Howdy all!
Avatar 9:26pm Holly in NC:

@fleep - I LIVE with a Red Sox fan. Was married to one, also, and that's not why we divorced :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Fuzzy:

BoSox were pretty sad this season :-(
  9:31pm jon:

hi evan and listeners. just got here and missed the satisfactions :-( got to set my alarm next time
Avatar 9:34pm Tito in San Francisco:

any relation to Rick Cerone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Stevel:

This evening is off to a music-geektastic start! So much relevant trivia. Life is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm efd:

Thanks Stevel and thanks everyone and also hi everyone! Thanks for being here.

@Tito, different spelling - the disco Cerrone has two Rs. Although even if it were the same spelling I'd be inclined to say no.
Avatar 9:41pm Tito in San Francisco:

I want to believe
  9:58pm courtneynoir:

Seriously - why should I bother trying to find new music when all my long-faves are still putting out new LPs? Ha
Avatar 10:00pm Holly in NC:

Whoops! Guessed New Zealand for Free Time, but Australia it is. Like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm chris_in_space:

Hi everyone.

Hey @efd, when you watch baseball do you watch with the sound on, or do you turn it down and put a record on? Curious. Personally, I mix it up, but it takes away from the game, admittedly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm efd:

hey chris! Much as I can't stand most non-Red Sox baseball announcers I can't fully watch/enjoy a game if the TV audio isn't on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Come back, Kurt Bloch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Stevel:

I love the Stringfellow cover sooooooo much. So funny. So dead on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Fuzzy:

Yes, efd, it's jarring to have to watch the Red Sox when Don and Jerry aren't announcing. Joe Buck --yuck!
Avatar 10:08pm Holly in NC:

I am SO glad I chose this premium. xoxo LOVE this cover.
Avatar 10:09pm glenn:

bad news, bucs fans. 5-0 giants.
Avatar 10:10pm Holly in NC:

Hastening to add I of course also chose efd's wonderful premium, as well as others...
  10:10pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Giants so confident up 5-0, they're letting Bumgarner bat in 6th inning.
Avatar 10:14pm glenn:

wait.... throwdown? when?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Stevel:

Original Moonlight. Kinda weird. Can't look away.

Being a top-40 listener, I know every breath of that song, and I never really loved it. I was never much of a channel-changer. I'd listen through anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm efd:

glenn, the AM Gold throwdown is 2 weeks from tonight - Weds Oct 15
Avatar 10:26pm glenn:

i'll be here.
Avatar 10:27pm Holly in NC:

Switching to phone, so likely will not comment for remainder of show. But listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm efd:

alright, enjoy the rest of your evening Holly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm efd:

Hey everyone, just wanted to quickly (and silently!) point out that this is the first day of our Silent Fundraiser (and Mascot Contest)! You can learn more about it at this link:
If you're able to make a pledge it would be greatly appreciated! You can use that widget at the top of the left-hand side of this page. Thank you!

KC Royals say that's no problem.
Avatar 10:51pm glenn:

yeah, but they can hit.
Avatar 10:52pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Everyone :)

@EFD - yeah but are the Pirates prepared to bunt enough to overcome a 7-0 deficit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm osvi:

ITS A SILENT FUNDRAISER!!! Gotta give, gotta give, gotta give!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Stevel:

Yeah, Apache Dropout. Strong live act.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm chris_in_space:

@efd, I don't think tonight's ball game is one where you need the sound on. What a blowout.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Chop Scott:

EFD! Ah--yes, the extended drum solo. Cheers!!!
Avatar 11:21pm Danne D:

What a great solo :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm efd:

two things that I'm not usually a fan of: drum solos and live recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Alex of Chicago:

Thanks, Evan. I'll catch the rest in the archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm efd:

Thanks Alex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Stevel:

Poobah took me back to a school auditorium concert by a band called Canary, in the Denver area, '73-'74. Drum solo ending with a fireball seemingly coming out of the big tom. Bliss.

"Sound good? Well, it is."
  11:49pm P-90:

The military is NOT offering deals quite that good these days
  11:51pm P-90:

Harry was SO "in"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm efd:

He's the innest there ever was.
  11:58pm P-90:

I was. kid when he was in his heyday at WABC, my friends and I always thought Harry and Dan Ingram were the coolest jocks on the radio.
Avatar 11:58pm Danne D:

Thanks EFD for a great show :)
G'night everyone :)
