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.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 7/14/09 11:04pm Neil Armstrong:

My fave track! Rockin!
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:05pm Parq:

Dang, good thing Joe Belock didn't play this.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Is that one note for a man; one giant song for mankind?
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:07pm Quoting:

efd said in belock comments he was not about to leak the title and risk getting gazumped
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:08pm john:

I remember when this story broke. I was (I think) ten. It didn't seem that odd. I miss the 1970s.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:09pm efd:

john, I have a story myself about when the story broke... stay tuned! :) (and hi everyone! gotta pick out the next song!)
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:16pm Jaime:

  Tue. 7/14/09 11:16pm john:

Looking forward to it! Great to hear your show at 8pm, by the way. A little cognitive dissonance tuning in while it's still light out!
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:19pm G:

Speaking of time for funk -- I guess whoever fills in for Tom is contractually obligated to run over several minutes, likewise!
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:22pm randy in NC:

Final AL 4 - NL 3
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:23pm efd:

  Tue. 7/14/09 11:23pm Joe:

when EFD plays Hot Chocolate, every1's a winner.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:25pm Joe:

You know what, that was unacceptable. I'm gonna go play Fallout.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:27pm Laurie:

It is time for FUNK.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:32pm ?:

and their wives were catchers
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:32pm john:

Both lefties, it should go without saying.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:33pm ?:

but didn't :-P
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:33pm Laurie:

I requested the Fastbacks song. Because I am awesome.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:35pm ?:

you go, girl!
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:36pm Amanda:

I'd like to go on the record as saying I approve of using The Final Countdown at any time, for any purpose. So, yes, that intro is great.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:39pm randy in NC:

No Wakefield, WP Papelbon, SV Rivera
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:46pm Jessica:

Late to the party. Wow, look what I missed: Hot Chocolate! and stuff I've never heard of! like this cool chickrock right here. Darn, have to have a rewind later. [sarcasm] [because Laurie is awesome]
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:47pm Jessica:

My math problem's solution was 777. I'm gonna make a wish, I think.
  Tue. 7/14/09 11:56pm Parq:

Wait, wait, I liked it better the first way!
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:00am G-ina:

I explained the French title in comments, last time you played it a month or so back!

"G" nick altered in honor of girls' night!
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:03am efd:

got it, G!

Hi Jessica! Maybe buy a lotto ticket as well.
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:05am español:

everyone knows what "chupa aqui!" means, i guess
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:09am Laurie:

Now I really want some root beer chupa chups. I will chupa the shit out of those chupa chups.

Wow, that sounded really gross.
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:10am Laurie:

I thought everyone's favorite feature was Evans in the News.
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:11am yo no soy marinero:

  Wed. 7/15/09 12:19am randy in NC:

  Wed. 7/15/09 12:48am G:

I've heard this "song" before. In real life!
  Wed. 7/15/09 12:59am Michael from the Left Coast:

Wait a minute, no Cars or Til Tuesday or any of the other BCN stalwarts?
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:00am Spoony:

Thank god! Boston's been STARVING for some more sports. Let's get some sports-talk up in Boston until we can come up with a long-term fix.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:00am ncp:

WZBC always
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:01am john:

Going to see Holsapple and Stamey later this week. Record sounds great.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:01am Ric Ocasek:

Yeah, WTF!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:04am efd:

i told myself i wasn't going to play Tinted Windows tonight, but that Anadrew WK song ended so fast and this was the first thing I could grab!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:04am comments observation:

texas scott, rachel jansen, and toni daytona all went on vacation the same week. amazing coincidence.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:10am Pete:


Regarding Bare Wires their new record is called "Artificial Cloud" but it looks like its only going to be out on vinyl (this is starting to bother me). They are going to tour in late summer and will be coming to Chicago (near where I live) but not New York.

Also sent you an email "XYX" (Mau) new single. If you read your emails, you can check out the email they sent.

  Wed. 7/15/09 1:13am Danne D:

Greetings Funktastic Followers
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:16am efd:

thanks for the info, Pete - and here's that new XYX single now!

Hi, Danne D!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:19am Danne D:

now that we're past the all star break this is where the Bill Leefds will start to pwn everyone. Thanks for letting get my brief moment in the sun in 2nd place before commencing your inevitable domination, Evan :)
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:20am efd:

ha! Danne, your confidence is appreciated but misplaced, I fear.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:23am Joshua K:

I haven't been following baseball but heres a picture http://i26.tinypic.com/x0y3ag.gif
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:25am Danne D:

LOL Joshua.

Btw, Evan is there going to be cake in celebration of Aharon's 100th transaction when it occurs?
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:33am Laurie:

Davila 666 are touring Florida with Jacuzzi Boys. They will be playing Miami, of course, but also Ybor City. And a handful of other cities.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:39am Joshua K:

Ybor city rules, as long as you don't go when the drunk people are there.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:39am anhelo:

xYx is tuning you tonight :)
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:39am mike:

Evan, I guess I am one of the three people listening that cared about what you said about WBCN. Really, I was shocked. I was just in Boston for the July 4th fireworks, on a boat in the Charles river listening to 'BCN at a boat party, and, with a couple of beers, it almost felt like the old days. While it is true the station is not what it once was, and, like you, I no longer live in Boston, I still associate that station with the city, and it certainly does seem like the end of an era.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:43am efd:

¡hola, Anhelo! Please come to New York sometime soon - and to Chicago, for Pete who commented earlier!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:45am Michael from the Left Coast:

Esther Phillips!!!
EFD--did you listen to her version of Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You (Yes the Dylan song)? It 's one of the best Dylan covers ever
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:46am efd:

Michael, I have to admit that I'm not familiar with much more than that single!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:49am Anhelo:

We want to!!! We will!!!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:50am efd:

Mike, thanks for your WBCN comment... it's weird, even though I'm sure I wouldn't have been listening if I lived up there it still feels like a loss of some kind. Sort of like when CBGB closed, even though I hadn't been there in ages.
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:54am Danne D:

night all you fine folks!
night Evan - you're a true WFMU all star!
  Wed. 7/15/09 1:56am efd:

ha, thanks Danne and goodnight all!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:50pm lindamae2410:

Thank you for keeping ESTHER PHILLPS alive in memory
Coud there be any better!

  Wed. 7/15/09 9:52pm lindamae2410:

Thank you for keeping ESTHER PHILLPS alive in memory
Coud there be any better!
