Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from August 25, 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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Listener comments!

  Wed. 8/25/10 9:06pm john:

Hey Evan! Thanks for the band info, we were just saying they sound like they should be from Pittsburgh. And apparently there was, according to Becky's brother, "some sort of huge Donnie Iris event" the night we arrived. The mind, such as it is, boggles.
  Wed. 8/25/10 9:07pm efd:

I'm starting to think there's ALWAYS "some sort of huge Donnie Iris event" in Pittsburgh.
  Wed. 8/25/10 9:11pm john:

It is, after all, Donnie Iris Territory!
  Wed. 8/25/10 9:17pm cheri:

hello evan--i'm back,,how was your summer? mine was great,,,i got a greta tan...as always i love your show!!! please play more 70s,,,,thnx efd
  Wed. 8/25/10 9:29pm cheri:

tell us evan how was your vacay??
  Wed. 8/25/10 9:38pm efd:

hey Cheri, I thought maybe I'd never hear from you again. My vacation was great, glad yours was too.
  Wed. 8/25/10 9:38pm chimp:

Oi oi oi!
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:06pm C:

weird. i haven't checked in to the comments board in months and cheri is here when i get, apparently after a long absence.

oh my god, am i cheri and not know it???
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:10pm efd:

C, i can't answer that question but it's nice to have you on the comments board again regardless.
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:12pm C:

Better than being back on the board, great to hear the Funk again!
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:25pm seang:

Hell Yeah, Feels Good to Feel!
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:36pm Sybil:

Belated good evening to whoever's here... Slow night on the comment board tonight!
I'm prepping for the fall term, what's your excuse? ;)

Anyhow, great music to do it by.
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:37pm Brian:

The Jim Jones Revue is the big revelation of the show so far... But I missed the first part of the show, will need to check out the archive to get that segue between the first and second songs... so amazing it's a trending topic on Twitter.
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:39pm Parq:

Just joining the comments, but I've been listening all along. Evan, no worries about that Dickies glitch at the top of the show. Not knowing that particular track, I just figured you were busting a funny voice about your own trip to Minni, and did not realize what I was listening to until I heard "Manitoba" mentioned.
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:54pm efd:

hi Sybil, Parq and Brian! Thanks for checking in.

Sybil, I feel like in general there are fewer comments at this time, although I think there are actually more people listening. My theory is that the earlier-evening listeners are otherwise engaged, as opposed to late-night chilling by their keyboard.
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:56pm efd:

At least, that's what I tell myself to stave off the feeling that no one's listening! :)
  Wed. 8/25/10 10:58pm Sybil:

You could be onto something, efd. The way my weird schedule will run this Fall, I'll be getting home just about in time to be finishing supper for the start of your show. But since Thursday is the only day I don't have an early-early morning class, at least I'll be able to stay up till midnight... if I don't fall asleep...
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:01pm Sybil:

(Not to suggest that your show would ever put me to sleep!)
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:13pm CP:

this mantles song rules!
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:15pm efd:

and that lock groove at the end makes it ideal for the TGSFKATMTO!
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:24pm efd:

ok everyone, get ready for the story behind the story of The Yachts' "Look Back In Love (Not In Anger)"
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:34pm cheri:

thanx for your company evan it was a great show,,,,i hope to be back next week,,,g'nite,,
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:37pm efd:

thank YOU, Cheri!
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:39pm jason:

that Marshmallow Staircase was killer! I've been meaning to buy that record, you just pushed me over the edge. And apparently they're not sold out of the 100 LPs yet... Anyway, enjoying the show Evan, been tuned in since The Laureates (will have to catch the opening set in the archives)
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:42pm Scott S.:

Stark Naked and the car thieves seems a surprising name for an early 60's group with that kind of sound. Evan "Funk" Davies, thank you for that fascinating history lesson
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:44pm efd:

Scott, that's a good point and I should point out that Chuck included the caveat "if you believe the website" when referencing the Stark Naked version. But regardless, even Teddy & the Pandas were covering it.
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:46pm efd:

Jason, yeah, that Marshmallow Staircase is great! Haven't been able to get it on the show as much as I'd like, unfortunately. Thanks for listening!
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:47pm Sybil:

OK, wreckless eric singing "put a little love in your heart" after that wonderful historical journey through "Look back in love not in anger"... purrrrrrfect!
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:51pm Danne D:

Hi EFD! (or is that Ev Funkin' Davies?) Hi Funk fans. Sorry I missed the show tonight - I am in DC actually :) went to the Nationals vs Cubs game tonight - what a great ballpark! Can't wait to check out the archive. Have a good night and see you next week :)
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:53pm efd:

hey Danne, great you got to see a game in DC! I hope to make it to that park next year. Thanks for checking in!
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:54pm Tom C.:

Pet Sounds Schmet Schmounds.
  Wed. 8/25/10 11:55pm efd:

Tom, I think I am going to steal that for the show title.
  Thu. 8/26/10 12:00am Tom C.:

Lovely. Summer Days (and Summer Nights) Schmummer Schmays (schmand Schmummer Schmights) doesn't have the same ring.
  Thu. 8/26/10 12:25am Joe:

I'm just stopping in to repeat Scott's point that Stark Naked and the Car Thieves seems like a HIGHLY unlikely name, indeed.
