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.

I haven't thought about Diana Dors in years. She was a pinup/sweater girl and actress in the 60s in the UK -- did she ever havce any success over here?

Little known fact -- her birthname was Diana Fluck. Be careful pronouncing it.
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:21pm Joe:

pronunciation hint: the "l" is silent
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:24pm Joe:

Everytime you've played this Bare Wires, I've not been paying attention. So now I'm dealing with the interesting phenomenon of being fully capable to sing along to a song I've never actually -heard- before.

The only other place where that's happened to me is with the Moody Blues songs my mother started exposing me to in utero.
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:24pm FCC:

I double dog dare ya.
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:27pm hoagies:

we *are* yummy.
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:29pm pfapfap:

Did people in the general WaWa vicinity think these jingles were Weird Al? Or is Parry known in those parts?
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:29pm Laurie:

Evan, I'm in Sadsackville D:
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:29pm efd:

  Tue. 9/8/09 11:32pm sabrina lane:

  Tue. 9/8/09 11:33pm Laurie:

Thank you, Evan. Gathering of the Sadsacks is still going strong in FOT Chat. (there are 20 people in chat still)
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:40pm toni daytona:

  Tue. 9/8/09 11:40pm Jock Detergent:

Bonsoir!!!!
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:41pm efd:

whoa, whoa, whoa - i don't think i can handle toni daytona AND sabrina lane in the comments at the same time!
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:43pm masters and johnson:

if sabrina and toni dated, would they be f---ing themselves? :-P
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:47pm Joe:

-weak-

I mean this song is good too but I was grooving the hell out of that awesome chillout tune. What happen?
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:48pm G:

  Tue. 9/8/09 11:49pm G:

the talkover bed came up by mistake!
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:49pm G:

  Tue. 9/8/09 11:49pm efd:

the chillout song ended and i was caught unawares!
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:53pm Danne D:

Hi funk folks!
Hope Laurie's sad sack status ceases shortly :)
  Tue. 9/8/09 11:54pm Joe:

  Wed. 9/9/09 12:14am tim:

  Wed. 9/9/09 12:16am Joe:

FU tim. FU right in the A.

Nah I'm just kidding - you alright, man.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:20am Joe:

Actually, you know what, hating on Yo La Tengo on a WFMU message board is an intensely ballsy move. I support it.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:21am tim:

i love yo la tengo. im just not sure its my kind of record.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:24am tim:

but for the record "nowhere to hide" is up on my top 5 songs of the year. good day for releases by the way. polvo. yo la tengo. raekwon.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:24am Joe:

ohhhhh. Yeah I'm actually not crazy about the new record, either. You're definitely right about that being one of the high points.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:25am tim:

slumberland go
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:27am tim:

where are you from joe?
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:30am Joe:

New Raekwon is super dope. Picked it up before class, been bumping it all day. Not sure if it's instant classic status yet though. I am currently located in the beautiful Skylands of North Jersey, sir.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:35am tim:

yeah i like alot of it. def the first side. he came through. alot of hype and i believe he lived up to it.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:37am tim:

  Wed. 9/9/09 12:37am efd:

yes, he is!
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:40am tim:

  Wed. 9/9/09 12:45am tim:

  Wed. 9/9/09 12:48am sabrina l.:

  Wed. 9/9/09 12:55am Joe:

That is some grade A yakkity old timey sax playing right there.
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:55am celeste:

Hi Evan - great set, we are dancing in our living room in Berkeley, California!
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:56am tim:

sabrina the teenage witch. im sure you havent heard that before. geeeeeee
  Wed. 9/9/09 12:59am efd:

hey Celeste! great to hear from you, glad you're enjoying the set!
Joe, credit goes to A-Bones honker Lars Espensen for the old-timey sax sound.
Sabrina, I learned a while ago not to make a promise I might not keep.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:01am Danne D:

you must be crazy too cuz I love the YFFs as well :)

Sabrina was one of Charlie's Angels. I'm sure she hasn't hear that one either :o)
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:04am coalhard:

WOULD EVERYBODY STOP DEMONIZING OBAMA--THE MAN IS TRYING HIS DAMNEST TO HELP EVERYONE--GIVE US A BREAK!!!!!
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:07am sabrina lane:

evan,,it was my pleasure hangin out with you 2nite,,sure was fun!!! see yall next wee=)
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:08am celeste:

We like the McKinley's version better. Play it again!
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:09am Joe:

That Mckinley's version was straight heaven.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:22am coalhard:

FANTASTIC SHOW!!!!!LOVE WFMU
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:22am Joe:

How can you go wrong with a comp called "Steppin' into the 80s?"

Is the cover art suitably 80sish?
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:24am stingy d:

yo funkaho! i can't listen right now but yr in my heart! (no homo)
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:25am Joe:

That was literally the greatest comment ever.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:33am efd:

Joe, that's a hard point to argue.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:34am Amanda:

I will not be arguing it either.

Certainly an 80stastic album cover, enhanced by the console in the background of the photo, which I thought at first was part of the cover art.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:34am Joe:

I know, I'm a little upset about it. stingy d might have won at commenting, forever.

PS - That cover exceeded my expectations in ways I can only barely comprehend. The fonts! The lineup! THE SHOES!
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:35am Joe:

And of course, the crushed beer can, just to make it edgy.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:41am efd:

yeah, there was too much glare when i tried to do a straight overhead shot, so i had to lean it against something and the console was the handiest thing.
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:47am Amanda:

But the console is even in the same color scheme!

It's like it took everything you thought you knew about the 80s and made you re-understand it. (I am referring to stingy's comment.)
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:51am Danne D:

Hi Amanda! :) (wow, you're up late!)
And good night funk friends!
:)
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:53am coalhard:

:)
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:54am Danne D:

Ted Leo :)
okay now I really am going to sleep!
  Wed. 9/9/09 1:55am Amanda:

I know... didn't think I'd get in from JC in time to catch any of you, but glad I did. Goodnight!

This version of this song has been in my head all day...
  Wed. 9/9/09 2:06am Peteski:

Great show, thanks for that Steppin into the 80s pic, (and liked the "Do you think Kim Clijsters is a fan of Wooden Shjips?" tweet) and the smart aleck FOT/BS asides.
  Fri. 9/18/09 9:30am JonFromMaplewood:

What is the bed music? And if it changes, what was the bed music specifically on the evening of September 8, 2009? It burned my eyebrows off. Thank you in advance. -Jon
