Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from December 31, 2007 Options

efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with a cut from the ‘70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: I’m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Tonight is all about prepping tomorrow's mojo menu, watching The Jerk, pondering the 2008 To Do list, and rocking out to Lakeside while reminiscing about 5th grade skate parties. Good times. Thanks, Evan, for the zen disco levity. I might get this list made after all!

The more "Champagne" I have the harder these playlist comment's math problems are to solve.
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:03am E.L.:

Punctuation also gets tricky.
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:03am phat:

Yes, the math keeps people from typing something they might regret.

phat
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:05am E.L.:

Too late.
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:08am phat:

By the way, I've recently rediscovered silver convention.

Weird, weird, weird.

phat
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:13am dave:

this year i resolve to be more funky. this show is the equivalent of a crunch membership in support of that resolution.
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:14am phat:

Yes, more funky.

I think I might have to join you with that resolution.

I might have to rock more, too, though.

phat
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:14am dave:

Great show. Happy New year from San Diego.. It feels like only yesterday I was biting my lower lip, arrthymically dancing and spilling beer on the dance floor at RU..Lisa Lisa I heart you
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:35am dave:

you sir, are a DEITY. i am in your debt forever.
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:41am dave:

i am so totally on the funk train.

fun fact, in repayment: giorgio moroder's 1970s look was created when he saw robin williams balance a ferret on his upper lip.
  Tue. 1/1/08 1:50am eegake:

Wonderful show! Nice way to roll in the New Year, I luv da funk!
  Tue. 1/1/08 7:28am slugluv1313:

hey Evan,

was way under the weather last night (battling a cold or flu or whatever) BUT i kept drifting in and out of consciousness while your show was on -- sure helped me feel soooooooo much better!

thanks so much and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Tue. 1/1/08 2:05pm Rix:

This was demonic possession. You saved my New Year's Eve.
  Tue. 1/1/08 2:47pm Ken Lawrence:

Hi evan was in the wrong place or didn't arrow down to comments Sorry you couldn't get to Love and Kisses, Accidental lover too many records too little time Huh?
  Tue. 1/1/08 4:41pm john:

is this show going to be archived?
  Tue. 1/1/08 4:52pm efd:

John - the archive will hopefully be up by the end of the day, it seems that the change in start time threw a bit of a monkey wrench into part of the usually well-oiled WFMU archiving machine.
Ken - thanks for your comment and email -- you're right, way more records than I had time for. I think I still wouldn't have run out if I'd stayed on the air this whole time.
Rix - I'm not sure about the demons, but glad I saved your New Year's Eve regardless
slugluv - hope you're feeling better, glad I could raise your spirits at least intermittently.
eegake, Murph, dave, peteski and all -- thanks for listening and for your comments! I had a blast, that was one of the most fun New Year's Eves I've had in a while!
  Wed. 1/2/08 12:31pm Andy:

The only thing that would have been better than getting my morning started with this set in an empty office today would have been listening live on NYE. Great set EFD, keep it up in '08.
  Tue. 3/11/08 10:24pm dave:

how can i get a copy of Slingshot's "You shook me all night long"?
  Tue. 9/15/09 4:50pm chuck e love:

  Mon. 11/30/09 8:05pm Wardell Piper:
