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.

Did I go back in time to late December? Oh hell
  9:29pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Maybe it's because I grew up listening to him, but I find the mere sound of Harry Harrison's voice quite comforting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Zetti:

thanks for the harry harrison
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm efd:

always my pleasure
  9:38pm Sam P.:

Love this groovy movies song!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm efd:

yeah, it's a good one!
  9:48pm Sam P.:

Were you playing off vinyl or was that an effect on the groovy movies track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm efd:

that was pure natural vinyl.
  9:57pm Stevel:

Finally saw the WFMU doc yesterday on Netflix (woot, sick day!?) Could have sworn efd was one of the subliminal cuts at the end. At least, that's how I chose to see it.

Avatar 10:00pm Hoboken Jack:

I would argue (not vehemently) that Phil Seymour is best known for his top-40 hit "Precious to Me."
  Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Julie M:

Hi Evan!
  10:02pm medson:

Hey efd. Digging the show still stuck at work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm jmd:

Alright, Tripwires! Seattle's finest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm efd:

Jack, for some reason I'm drawing a blank on that Phil Seymour song! I'll have to listen to it - it's on the CD, of course.
Hello hello to medson, Julie, Stevel (I don't think that was me), jmd, 12539, and whoever I missed (sorry!)

Welcome back EFD, and happy late new years to you too.

Nothing against Samantha, she is killing it
  10:53pm Stevel:

I've never heard a version of Needles and Pins that I didn't love.
  Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Julie M:

Good show, Evan. Must keep my promise to get to bed. I think I'm going to have some ethereal dreams if I take these last tracks to sleep with me. Hopefully there won't be a falling Batman involved, @Switchblade B.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm efd:

thanks Julie, sleep well!
Avatar 11:00pm aaronfromMI:

love the guitar tone on this one (terry malts)
Avatar 11:07pm Andrew S:

wow i didnt know that Sire era of Searchers very cool. Some great long time bands got signed by sire then, troggs, groovies. Searchers were a surprise though, have to dig into those recordings. S. Stein sure had great taste
