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.

Thanks for your excellent broadcast tonight. Happiest of Holidays to you and yours EFD, and to the whole WFMU gang.
  Tue. 12/18/07 9:58pm Ben:

Fine show. It's been a long while since I last heard "Santafly."
  Wed. 12/19/07 8:42am Vincent:

Great show. Small Xmas request if I may... Root Boy Slim and the Rootettes (out of DC) have the classic 'Christmas at K-Mart' featuring the immortal line 'the mood ring counter is all aglow'. I haven't heard it in ages and would be grateful if you or someone could dig out a copy. Thanks and happy Xmas.
  Sat. 12/22/07 8:33pm efd:

wow, look at all these post-show comments!

@Vincent, I won't be doing another Christmas show but maybe I can dig that Root Boy Slim track up for next year. (I think it's on one of those "new wave" or "alternative" Christmas comps.
@Ben - thanks! "Santafly" was a last-minute grab from my basement, glad I thought of it before I left home that night.
@John - thanks for your comment, I appreciate it especially since I was having second thoughts about the Christmas spirit as the show progressed - glad you enjoyed it.
@lorac - Of course! that must be it... I have to admit to not being familiar with that version of "Silent Night," but that makes perfect sense.
@Sabrina, sorry I didn't get to any Sinatra tunes.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
