Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from July 21, 2010 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.

Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/21/10 9:21pm Rachel D.:

this song is marvelous!
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:26pm efd:

you're talking about the "Soul Mate" song, right? Glad you liked it, that was a random record sale find over the weekend.
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:33pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :) Hi Funk Fans! That first set was fabulous :) No wonder all the ladies want to be Evan's soulmate :)
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:35pm Danne D:

That 2nd song was outstanding btw. Look forward to the live set.
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:36pm efd:

hey Danne, thanks for checking in!
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:36pm john:

Hey Evan! And yes, that record was damn near as good as the godlikle Brownsville Station!

And if anyone needs a backup first baseman, well, you know where to find me...
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:38pm Danne D:

You should call it the mid-show ticket oasis. same song. Just one more syllable :) Hey John. If we could start 8 first basemen I'd be right there :)
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:42pm Brian:

Yay. EFD's show sounds as good five time zones ahead as it does three time zones behind.
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:44pm efd:

Hey Brian, good to have you listening in the UK as opposed to the CA! Danne, that's not the worst idea in the world. Neither of those ideas, actually. John, I'm overloaded with 1Bs myself!
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:47pm cheri:

hiya evan,,,i'm enjoying the show so far,,,which brings me to a request,,,could you please play some candi staton tunes tonite???thnx efd
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:48pm john:

Actually, both of you have a better stock of them than I do! But I've got you beat for crappy closers!
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:50pm Rachel D.:

A+ transition from strange attractor to the health remix!
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:56pm efd:

thanks Rachel!

Cheri, I think you need to get some new requests.
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:57pm Will:

You go, Evan! Anything you play is what we wanna hear to a point positively devotional, Out Here Will J
  Wed. 7/21/10 9:59pm seang:

cool song right here
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:01pm efd:

Will, I like the way you think. You too, Sean!
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:03pm john:

Man, if that Mantles track had come out in 1986 when it should have I'd have been screaming that they're the best band in the world. And there was a Jazz Butcher spinoff project called Stranger Tractors, though it needs to be pronounced with an English accent.
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:03pm cheri:

how about some riaa???
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:09pm AZ:

Thrilled to be back listening live after 10 days on the road! LJP & I are eating Chinese food and digging the show. That Pleasure Kills track was amazing--it reminded me of Human Switchboard (there can be no higher praise; at least not from me this evening).
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:11pm efd:

Not as thrilled as I am, AZ! Yeah, Pleasure Kills are great - I'm psyched to have them on! Regards to LJP - are you guys going to the Paul F. Tompkins show later?
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:14pm cheri:

evan---you don't have any riaa tonite??
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:17pm efd:

I do not.
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:19pm WFMU idiot:

Please do not harass the DJ--Peace brothers and sisters
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:19pm cheri:

tnx anyway evan--g'nite
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:20pm AZ:

We're too wiped out to make it out the door to PFT this time. Next month!
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:34pm efd:

I was thinking that might be the case... I'm happy to entertain you while you recuperate!
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:46pm chris_toronto:

Blue Cheer's 'Out of Focus': nice staple in the EFD hit-list. love it.
  Wed. 7/21/10 10:53pm randy in NC:

That's me!
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:05pm efd:

yeah Randy! Maybe you can make it to one of those two Big Hair & Plastic Grass events!
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:17pm AZ:

The first Speed The Plough album is one of the great lost records of the 80's. (But only on vinyl. They remixed the tracks for CD, and the results were unspectacular.)
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:19pm sweaty:

new age dance party
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:22pm efd:

I have to admit that album was certainly overlooked by me... I'll have to go back and check it out.

Work it, sweaty!
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:26pm Danne D:

can't read the comments but listening on the phone :) great show as usual Evan. Have a great summer week and weekend Funk Friends :)
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:27pm AZ:

new Liminanas! oh boy!
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:30pm cheri:

efd-- one last comment,,thnx for your company,,,have a great week
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:30pm Amanda:

Awwww, Sound of Summer! I was just thinking of this today, so you're well on your way.
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:33pm efd:

alright, good to know Amanda!

thanks for listening Cheri, and goodnight!
  Wed. 7/21/10 11:54pm randy in NC:
