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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Uncle Michael:

This is my favorite radio station to station.
Avatar 9:12pm Loretta:

hi Evan!! great way to start the show.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm chad from oregon:

Lovely. The weekly Bowie cut continues.
  9:19pm Stevel:

Hell of an opening set!

(Twitter star..)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm efd:

HA! Thanks Stevel, and welcome chad, Loretta, UM, and RRN63
  9:21pm Stevel:

Wow to Family Scraps.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

Family Scraps is the frontman from Hookworms. He knows what he's doing.
Avatar 9:24pm Mailman Tom:

New Wave and Punk broke at the same time. I went with New Wave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Uncle Michael:

I went with hair metal.
  9:26pm asheville jon:

Sweet show so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Alex of Chicago:

va va va voom
  9:28pm Stevel:

I primarily went new wave but I loved anything sarcastic, which led me to punk like DKs, FEAR and other scenes I'd have had a hard time hanging with in high school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm coelacanth∅:

greetings efd and funkettes
wish i'd heard station to station, though i guess i can just put it on when i get home. -still i'm glad you're playing Bowie almost every show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm chad from oregon:

Station To Station and Va Va Va Voom each also happened to be the opening songs for EFD's tributes to them last year! (I just happened to be revisiting the archive page as it was playing. My memory isn't *that* on)
  9:33pm JakeGould:

Jimmy… Jim-my shelter… Ooo… I’m going to fade away!
  9:34pm Stevel:

Jake. So it would seem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm efd:

he actually has the gall to spell it JIMME Shelter!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Uncle Michael:

Jimme Danger
Jimme Shock Treatment
Jimme Jimme Good Lovin'
  9:42pm JakeGould:

@efd: OH MY GOD! I made a mistake on the Internet! Dammit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

I was not pointing out a mistake! How were you to know that he chose that stupid spelling?
  9:46pm Stevel:

Pretty sure Jake's supposed to know all of the stupid stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Uncle Michael:

I thought that was my job.
  9:57pm JakeGould:

@efd: What Stevel said. I will be holding a press conference tomorrow regarding this—and the British MI6 briefing—against me.
  9:57pm Stevel:

It's a rotating task.
  9:58pm JakeGould:

I adhere to the “Plan, Do, Check, Act, Facepalm, Cry in Corner” management model.

EFD have you built up your bottlecaps collection again?

To the new king of Twitter: Great last set! Especially enjoyed "Together Again."

  10:19pm JakeGould:

Queen! Holy crap! THANK YOU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Glenn L:

Love that Fly Ashtray!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Scraps deSelby:

Wm. Berger's band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm efd:

Scraps, I think you're mixing up Fly Ashtray with Uncle Wiggly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Glenn L:

Close Wm Berger was never in Fly Ashtray. Wm's band was Uncle Wiggly w/members of Fly Ashtray.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Figgsrock:

Boy, every time I hear an Eyelids song my life gets a tiny bit better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Scraps:

efd: you're right, and what's more, I always screw up Fly Ashtray and Uncle Wiggly, for twenty+ years. I don't know why
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Scraps:

Probably because what Glenn said....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Scraps:

I always read "we buy everything you have", adding mentally "wholesale"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Chop Scott:

EFD--Listening as always! Cheers!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm chad from oregon:

You had me at "booty tracks".
  10:41pm ice in Bklyn:

Kevin Failure also has a show Thursday nite in Bushwick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm efd:

thanks ice!
  11:12pm ice in Bklyn:

No prob. I'm extra excited because it's my bday and I get to go!
Kevin's wfmu guest show on Russian punk is still an archive favorite.
  11:13pm ice in Bklyn:

The rain is causing some fm interference tonite..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Scraps:

Sounds okay, if post-punk is what they're supposed to sound like. If it's supposed to sound like honky-tonk or Bakersfield sound, then not.
  11:18pm ice in Bklyn:

Kevin Failure show is at trans-pecos, not exactly bushwick, my bad.
With Richard Papiercuts (!) and others..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Scraps:

Richard Papiercuts: There were no results matching the query. Shoot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Scraps:

I like songs that start with a drum fill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm efd:

got another one coming up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm efd:

a pretty short one though (the fill, not the song)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Scraps:

In fact, Track 7 reminded me (at the start) of a Sloan song, "Autobiography"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm nixxon:

Damn - I *always* miss the beginning of this show. One day, Evan, One day...
  11:35pm Hoboken Jack:

Thanks for the reminder about Tuns, I was out of commission when the album finally came out! And the Seams vocalist has a slight Al Stewart thing going on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Scraps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm efd:

Yeah, that Tuns album is solid! I did not detect that Stewartian quality in the Seams' singer, will have to listen more closely next time.
Avatar 11:44pm northguineahills:

Wow, haven't heard anything on Tempa Recs in almost 7 years!
  11:44pm ice in Bklyn:

@scraps, that's because it's under dick papercuts.
We can expect something unusual.
Avatar 11:45pm northguineahills:

I'm pretty sure I have a record from a 90s indie band called seam, a little different from the seams....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Scraps:

Seam was a Chapel Hill band
Avatar 11:49pm northguineahills:

Thanks Scraps. Until I get my own apt again, my recs are in storage, so, I can't reference them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm Scraps:

At least for the first album, they had Mac McCaughan and members of Velocity Girl and Bitch Magnet
Avatar 11:53pm tuner fish:

excellent show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Scraps:

They were other Seam cds, but I only have the first
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Scraps:

Thank you efd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm coelacanth∅:


-Thanks Evan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm efd:
