Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from December 9, 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

  Tue. 12/9/08 11:09pm Sybil:

Missed you last week. Although Todd did a great job.

I needed this song!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:11pm efd:

thanks Sybil, thanks Annabelle! I'm glad to be back (and grateful to Todd for the last-minute fill-in last week).
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:14pm annabelle clark:

like sybil said you were missed..i guess you didn't feel well last week,,,btw efd what was the worst gift that you ever got,,hmm???
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:19pm annabelle c.:

evan have you got any special holiday plans?
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:20pm efd:

Annabelle, in the words of Rosanne Rosannadanna: you ask a lot of questions!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:25pm Sybil:

I am in love with tonight's show. That is all.
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:25pm annabelle clark:

evan forgive me for being soo nosey,,,i'm sorry efd,, ohhhhhhh yaaaaaahhhhhh tee set
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:32pm Sybil:

Bullet wound???
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:39pm efd:

You'll have to listen to the very beginning of Todd's fill-in from last week.

p.s. I'm fine.
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:41pm C:

he really scared me for a second there. glad all's well!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:44pm hazeljane:

the music is GREAT
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:45pm annabelle c.:

evan i'm really glad that your ok this week,,,& i'm still sorry for being nosey,,,
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:47pm efd:

thanks Hazeljane, thanks Annabelle.

C, I can see how that would have caused some alarm... especially for people who either aren't in NY or don't follow football (or both)
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:50pm Sybil:

The bullet-football connection is known even to this complete football non-follower. (I try very hard not to know anything about football, but it's more difficult than you might think.)
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:50pm C:

Haha. No, it was actually the part where he said something like "don't blame Tom for joking about Evan's absence, he didn't know what happened." the guy really sold it.
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:52pm Sybil:

OK, now I've got to go listen to it. Well, not *now*, but later.

Will it only make sense if I also listen to the last few minutes of Tom's show? (I must have missed this - dang!)
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:57pm Pete:

Even:

Listener Pete here. Hope all is well with you. If possible, requesting that you play the song "Brown Eyes" by Gary Charlson off the Numero Titan records comp.

Thanks!!
  Tue. 12/9/08 11:59pm annabelle/catlin:

well evan i'm outa here,,thank you for putting up with me,,,rest easy,,see u next week--g'nite =)=)=) peace & love
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:04am efd:

goodnight Annabelle!
Hello Pete! I am going to have to go in to the comments system and correct your misspelling of my name... but I do have that Titan comp here in the studio, so the odds of your request getting played are good. :)
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:07am efd:

Sybil, yes, ideally the whole thing works best if you hear the tail end of Tom's show first... C, yes, I see your point - Todd did a good job of sounding pretty grave (for a change!).
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:13am wendy:

what is the no. again? love the show
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:22am annabelle c.:

i'm sorry evan,but i was just wonderin would you consider me as one of your fave comenters?? i want to know,,,thank you
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:22am randy in NC:

efd, while you're at it with Brown Eyes, could I add Big Brown Eyes to the list? Or Amplifier?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:24am C:

i don't know if this means anything to you, but you're one of my favorite commenters, annabelle.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:27am efd:

and I agree with C.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:30am Laurie:

What did we do wrong? Did we do something to anger you, Evan, and that's why you're playing Ace Frehley?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:30am Laurie:

Was it because that one person spelled your name wrong or something?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:33am efd:

Laurie, if I were mad at you(se), I would have played Peter Criss.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:44am MARK:

Do you like Nitecaps' GO TO THE LINE?
Wounded Bird Records just reissued it. They also did Polyrock and Bonnie Hayes. Bonnie Hayes is cool, too.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:45am randy in NC:

efd, when you get a chance sometime, check out Tramp by the band Royal Purple. Joe B. played it today, man what a thing with a hook.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:48am efd:

Randy, I actually played that a few weeks ago! (Along with the original version by BTO!)

HI MARK! That's cool about the Nitecaps reissue, I'll have to keep an eye out.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:50am randy in NC:

Oh yes I remember that now. It's late...
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:51am efd:

no worries, Randy... I don't expect everyone to mentally catalog all my shows. :)
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:54am john:

Damn, that Eagles of Death Metal song was good...even if it was a piss-take...I may need to reappraise.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:54am Sybil:

Hearing this makes me feel unreasonably nostalgic.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:56am C:

did they really name this album "theme from growing pains"? is that the most sought after theme that's going to sell the album?
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:57am efd:

well it certainly isn't the theme from "My Sister Sam."

although there is something Murphy Brown-related on there, you'd think that would be the hook.
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:59am john:

Evan, play some Sexual Objects if WFMU has it...Merrie England is a great single...
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:00am Joe:

Hi, Evan, just stopping in because that last track destroyed what's left of my sanity. Greatest American Hero indeed.

Good show, carry on.
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:02am ?:

awesome
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:06am john:

RIP Wursthaus
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:06am C:

that great restaurant is gone, unfortunately
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:12am efd:

i figured as much... if Out Of Town news can't make it I don't have much hope for anything else in Harvard Square.
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:15am C:

that newstand in the middle of the square? how is that possible?
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:16am john:

that's closing...they sold in '94 to Hudson...and now Hudson's leaving...
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:18am efd:

John is correct, unfortunately. I think Nini's Corner is still there, at least?
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:18am john:

yessir it is
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:19am C:

yikes. next you're going to tell me that the weirdos have been moved out of the pit by the t stop
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:20am john:

they will never leave...like cockroaches, they'll be there after the bomb hits
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:23am randy in NC:

More hook
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:30am Laurie:

PRIDE OF MIAMI.
  Wed. 12/10/08 1:55am M Otis Beard:

Oh, this is fantastic. I'm lying in bed in a big rig at a truck stop in Salina, Kansas... and I'm listening to WFMU.
  Tue. 12/16/08 3:59pm Chris:

Thanks for playing Dogmatics - Gimme the Shakes! I love that song. I've always liked the 7" version better than the lp version.
