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.

  Wed. 12/29/10 9:05pm john:

  Wed. 12/29/10 9:06pm Brian:

  Wed. 12/29/10 9:08pm Laurie:

  Wed. 12/29/10 9:10pm efd:

hi everyone! It's the most stressful show of the year! Thanks for joining me.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:10pm Nick:

I bought a copy of this album a few years ago at the thrift store. Original pressing. I was excitied and showed my friend Sol, a black man who loves hip-hop and makes beats. He hated MC Shan. He said he had no flow. I was deflated.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:17pm Nick:

I lked it, but I always wondered if it was because I didn't really know anything about hip-hop.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:18pm Nick:

Marco Peroni.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:33pm mark:

This show could be stressful on my wallet.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:36pm efd:

ha, I can understand that.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:49pm Joe:

1. Surfer Blood - Astro Coast
2. Screaming Females - Castle Talk
3. (tie) Purling Hiss - Public Service Announcement / Hissteria
4. Tone Tank and Scott Through - Scott & Tone
5. Junk Science - Miraculous Machines
6. I dunno, Celph Titled or ghostface or somebody
7. other things

man this is hard
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:53pm efd:

See???
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:54pm Madi H:

I see what you mean.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:56pm efd:

John, the next record is as close as we're going to get to Dawnie territory.

And that's only because they're from Pittsburgh.
  Wed. 12/29/10 9:58pm efd:

Hi Madi, thanks for stopping by!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:00pm Madi H:

It's a standing date.
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:00pm john:

Doesn't that straightshooter lyric sort of sound like "if i leave this world tomorrow with a mullet?"

Ooooh, gonna play Rusted Root? Ahhh, Modey Lemon.
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:00pm mark:

Lovin' the show! Thanks for reminding me to pick up the endtables (among other things).
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:01pm listener mark:

Happy New Year, Evan!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:02pm efd:

Thanks, Marks!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:10pm efd:

I finally realized I don't have to keep putting "2010" for the year...
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:12pm Laurie:

you realized that at 10:10?
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:13pm efd:

I realized it sooner, but I decided to comment on it at 10:10.
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:23pm Joe:

i knew that would end up on yr list - I am surprised you picked the Super Human side!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:23pm Madi H:

It'll be good when people search the archives, or something.
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:24pm efd:

Joe, it was definitely a toss-up.
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:29pm andyg:

this liminanas track is fantastic!!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:30pm efd:

That's why it's #1! :)
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:44pm Kat:

putting the F in EFD with these funky compilation picks!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:44pm Sybil:

Finally online... Good last Wednesday evening of 2010, everyone!

Drat, I missed the #1 single. But that's the only correct prediction I have made so far...
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:47pm Herminio:

Hii @efd, great show!... Greetings from Natal / Brazil!
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:49pm bennett4senate:

dang EFD, Brit Funk and Family album are at the bottom of your list, can't wait to see what bested those, they were big for me this year :)
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:54pm Sybil:

You know what, there was a single I was surprised not to see on your list this year, and then I Googled it and found out it probably came out in 2008. So there's a lot of that going around.
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:55pm Sybil:

These are some fine compilations! And how did a great title like "Le Beat Bespoke" slip past me?
  Wed. 12/29/10 10:56pm efd:

Sybil, it's tough keeping track of the actual release dates!

B4S, those are solid comps! It was tough putting this list in order.

Hola Herminio, thanks for listening all the way in Brasil!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:00pm Sybil:

I would have said they spell their name like the great saxiphonist.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:01pm Sybil:

saxophonist? It looks wrong no matter how I spell it.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:04pm efd:

Saxamophonist, I think.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:06pm Joe:

sax-a-ma-PHONE

sax-a-ma-PHONE
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:08pm Sybil:

Yes, that's definitely it.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:08pm El Clash:

Saxofonista!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:18pm Danne D:

Have a safe and Happy New Year everyone :) loved the bit of the show I was able to atch EFD. Looking forward to going through it all on the archive :) See you in 2011 :)
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:19pm Sybil:

I KNEW this one would make it!!!
OK, that's two correct predictions. I have no more.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:20pm Joe:

Eddie Argos.... stand up guy!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:20pm Joe:

And his girlfriend's a babe
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:22pm efd:

Joe is correct. On both counts.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:25pm Sybil:

Oh, I forgot (how could I???) Mathematical Monsters.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:26pm efd:

I knew you'd kick yourself as soon as I played it. :)
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:27pm OM:

I think it is roughly "AYE-res"
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:27pm Marcelo:

Evan, happy 2011 from Argentina
My family loves WFMU, thanx for the music
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:29pm efd:

Speaking of Argentina! Hi Marcelo, thanks for listening and best wishes to your family.

OM, thanks - that's kind of what I was going for, though the execution may have been a little weak.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:30pm OM:

Of course I speak terrible Midwestern Spanish, so my pronunciation is often wayyy out there.

Awesome show, btw!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:38pm osvi:

Taking notes...
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:42pm Joe:

ted leo is #1 of best people who will play basements.

in my heart.

I'm calling #1 right now...
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:47pm Sybil:

Good segue thematically and musically from #4 to #3.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:47pm Sybil:

And then, goodness, to #2. How does he do it?!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:49pm john:

Ted Leo also my fave show of the year. Rawk!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:50pm Joe:

well, fail.


WHO WILL BE NUMBER ONE?!?!?!?!
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:52pm efd:

Sybil, you'll have to believe me that those segues were completely coincidental. There's actually a song on the #1 album that would be the perfect capper to the sequence, but I'm playing a different one.

Joe, you're not thinking hard enough.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:58pm Madi H:

Those Owls just get better and better.
  Wed. 12/29/10 11:58pm Joe:

ZOMG indeed! I was not thinking hard enough.


Excellent choice. EXCELLENT. Happy new year!
  Thu. 12/30/10 12:01am mark:

Thought this was Wings not Owls
  Thu. 12/30/10 12:10am Amanda:

I got home just in time to totally miss this whole show. Be it known that I called #1 album to myself on the train, though (really!). I have it and it is so great. HNY Evan!
