Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from November 18, 2008 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

Listener comments!

  Tue. 11/18/08 11:12pm Joe:

I saw The Go back in June, headlining for the Black Hollies. I'm not sure where I got the tickets. Anyway, they were awesome. But I was not crazy about this album when I heard it last.
  Tue. 11/18/08 11:21pm efd:

yeah, I have to say that album didn't make a huge impression on me either. But another Joe who you may know recently gave me an extra copy he had of this single and I liked it more now. Might be time to re-listen to that CD.
  Tue. 11/18/08 11:26pm Joe:

I was just gonna say, the single sounds much better to me. Must be the vinyl. Or maybe the weather. All killer tonight, so far, btw. Really great stuff. Will there be another robo-Tom appearance?
  Tue. 11/18/08 11:48pm Michael from the left coast:

Since you're in this groove, how about "Bubblegum" by Sonic Youth?
  Tue. 11/18/08 11:51pm annabelle clark:

happy holidaze everyone,,peace love & good will=)=)=)
  Tue. 11/18/08 11:58pm Laurie:

Speaking of Florida bands, did you get a little email from a Miami band??
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:03am efd:

yes i did! thanks for acting as my agent! :) unfortunately we're not going to be able to set something up this time around, but hopefully we'll do something sometime next year after their album comes out.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:05am annabelle clark:

evan got any special thanxgivin plans??
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:06am efd:

MIchael, I ran into the library and looked for Bubblegum but couldn't find it, at least not in the time I had while a song was playing!
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:07am Laurie:

Ooh, bummer. And next year is less than a month and a half away. This year has gone so fast.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:15am Laurie:

This is almost as good as the lion cub cam, in the unlikely event that y'all haven't been tipped to the puppycam: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/shiba-inu-puppy-cam
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:16am Joe:

Laurie I've been watching that nonstop for days now.

I think they're sleeping now.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:17am Laurie:

No, they are not. It's 9:17 pm in San Francisco, and they are romping around.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:20am Joe:

Ooooooh i hate to miss a good romp. I wasn't sure where they were, they seem to keep odd hours.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:21am Laurie:

Oh my god, two of them were just playing tug of war with a chew toy!!!!
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:24am Joe:

This song actually scores the action quite well.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:29am annabelle c.:

g'nite all=)=)=)
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:29am efd:

i think some people at work were talking about that puppy cam the other day, but I didn't hear the whole conversation and thought they were talking about the puppy *bowl*.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:31am efd:

goodnight annabelle. to answer your question - yes I do have some special thanksgiving plans. :)
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:33am mark:

Have you ever heard of Eddie Schwartz NO REFUGE? It's pretty good pop from 1981, released on Atlantic. I think he's Canadian.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:42am santucci:

WHITE DRUGS!
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:50am Amanda:

Man, what I wouldn't give for a ride in that Critters limousine.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:52am efd:

Amanda, seriously!

Mark, not familiar with Eddie Schwartz but sounds like something that might be up my alley.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:53am Joe:

Why the quotes around "interview"? Are you suggesting, somehow, that Mr. Harrison has not held up to the Evan "Funk" Davies show's impeccable journalistic standards?
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:54am efd:

I'm suggesting that Mr. Harrison and the members of the Critters never engaged in a direct conversation of any kind.
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:57am ?:

My Dr. Strangelove DVD extras contain something similar. Its a blank half of a split screen, with Peter Sellers on one side, giving answers to questions nobody is asking. The local stations were then free to splice in their local news anchor giving his "exclusive" interview.

See, media was fun back then!
  Wed. 11/19/08 12:59am Joe:

I'm forgetting my name on things. Time for bed. Good show, good night!
  Wed. 11/19/08 1:00am efd:

thanks Joe! Sleep well.

Laurie, if you're still out there and not totally consumed by the puppy cam - did you see the comment directed to you on my playlist from last week's show? It was added the next day, I think.
  Wed. 11/19/08 1:06am Laurie:

To answer this fellow's question: I'm a mysterious lady.
  Wed. 11/19/08 1:09am Joe:

Wooooow Harry sounds like he had a couple before getting on the mic, there.

Okay now I'm really going to bed. But I will still be listening.
