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. 8/31/11 9:04pm G:

Quite the little JGT to EFD transition there!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:13pm Amanda:

Final summer set of 2011? Are we to hear Starbreaker???
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:16pm Amanda:

Thank you for your attention in this matter.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:16pm john:

Hoping this would turn up!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:16pm efd:

I was too busy cueing it up to see your comment!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:20pm bigsigsputnik:

I am also afraid of the Cuisinart!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:22pm G:

since 1974?
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:25pm bigsigsputnik:

Well, maybe 1984.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:26pm 12539:

Evan, I think your campaign is working. I went to the record store to buy that Starbreaker 7" and they were sold out!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:29pm Dave B:

Hey EFD and the rest of the Funkonians!

Dave B checkin in. Love that RIAA track (and anything they do)
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:30pm G:

@12539: In fact, the whole 45 section was gone. In fact, the whole vinyl section was gone. In fact, the whole nationwide record store chain had closed.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:31pm john:

Perhaps the closest Magazine ever got to sherbet was "Permafrost," which was, upon further review, really rather unsummery.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:32pm Marc:

Nice! The ultimate Summer Set
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:34pm Kat:

Followed by the ultimate introduction to "Thirteen Women."
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:34pm Bakers Dozen o B------:

We are very summery :-)
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:42pm got goobs:

oh yeah!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:45pm Down in NC:

I've just recently discovered WFMU, listened to Julie and Clay during their Irene marathon, they were great. This is my first Funk Davies Show, love the music, you have a new fan!!!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:46pm Marc:

Now it's the cool chick singer segment...me like
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:46pm efd:

What up, got goobs! And hi everyone! Thanks for listening and commenting!

12539, I feel so validated!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:50pm glenn:

hey, down in n.c.- us up here in t.o. feel the same way.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:51pm Amanda:

WTG on that entire set, Pleasure Kills song most 'specially.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:54pm G:

@Down in NC: There are at least a couple other fairly frequent commenters from NC here at EFD's show board. They'll show up in comments later, or another week soon...
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:55pm john:

Funk get ready to roll.
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:58pm efd:

Leave my funk alone!

Down in NC, thanks very much! Happy to have you as a new listener! And thanks to you too, Amanda!
  Wed. 8/31/11 9:58pm ScottC:

Nuns cover? Or is it Jane Miro?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:00pm ScottC:

Nuns meet the Voidoids!!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:02pm Danne D:

Yay! :) Sparks!

Hi Funk Fans :)

Heading to Vega$ tomorrow and trying to get some work done so I may not comment too much.

Welcome, Down in NC - FMU is a wonderful thing - enjoy )

Yay Amanda is here :)

Hi to all the regulars and irregulars and greeting to Sir EFD.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:02pm Dave B:

SPARKS??!

Angst In My Pangst!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:03pm john:

I love Sparks, including this very song, but it's a little disconcerting how sometimes they can sound like a slightly less unhip Queen.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:03pm Down in NC:

Why are there not more places to here music like this? It's actually interesting. Maybe I've never looked in the right place.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:04pm glenn:

queen can only gaze up at sparks hipness.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:05pm glenn:

or perhaps the hipness of sparks.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:07pm Dave B:

"she's very sparkly....

...very sparkly"
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:07pm Julie:

aw man I missed starbreaker
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:08pm efd:

On the plus side, you haven't missed Lene Lovich.

Ooh! Spoiler alert!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:09pm glenn:

amanda and julie together? cosmic wfmu awesome chick overload.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:09pm Dave B:

We're in trouble now...

It's the Funk Police!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:09pm john:

I did say "LESS unhip Queen," though to be fair, it's hard to think of anyone who isn't. Well, maybe The Strokes.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:10pm glenn:

oh. oops. now i feel slightly less unsmrt.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:11pm Amanda:

Lene Lovich! Julie! Everything!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:12pm Julie:

Amandaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:12pm glenn:

oops again. MORE unsmrt.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:14pm cheri:

hi there evan,,julie & danne have you got any special labor day weekend plans yet?? danne how was your vacay?? i hope you had a great time danne!!!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:16pm G:

Larry's King in a Skirt has arrived.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:16pm PB:

@glenn, is that t.o. as in Toronto? Toronto is my hometown and although I haven't lived there for almost 20 years, i do recall a few of the college stations (CIUT - University of Toronto) and CKLN (Ryerson) being pretty good. Having said that, there is no station around like 'FMU.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:17pm glenn:

yep. ckln was forced to shut the doors about 4 or 5 months ago.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:17pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan - and hi Down in NC, glad you're here!
Julie - your show with Clay did indeed rock ;-)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:17pm john:

Varitek parks one in the bullpen!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:18pm Danne D:

LOL :)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:18pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--Glenn Tilbrook birthday today--no birthday tribute?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:18pm Danne D:

What's worse is I've heard this before...
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:19pm Greg:

HA HA HA! Agnostics/atheists unite!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:19pm G:

Bible Belt Booty Babe?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:19pm Holly in NC:

@Down in NC -
Do check wxdu (durham) and wxyc (chapel hill) as complimentary adjuncts to your wfmu listening!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:20pm Danne D:

I like 'em leather and bound
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:20pm Down in NC:

This one would go over great down here in the Bible Belt
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:20pm efd:

Hi Michael - I was unaware! I'll see if I can work something in later.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:20pm Danne D:

whoa - a shout out for the Apocrypha
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:21pm Stevel:

Tuned in just in time. Praise the Lord!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:21pm cheri:

danne?? i hope you had a great vacay!!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:21pm PB:

Uh Evan, what is this?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:22pm NWS:

Warning! Hurricane Cheri!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:22pm Down in NC:

Thanks Holly I'm in High Point do you think I can get them over the air
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:23pm cheri:

so evan,,julie & danne got any special weekend plans?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:24pm Danne D:

Thanks Cheri. North Carolina was fun. Heading to Vegas tomorrow.

Honestly, I think the Baby Got Book parody was cleverly done. Unfortunately good (non-Gospel) Christian music is pretty rare (but not unheard of - see Danielson)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:24pm glenn:

when did vacation become vaycay and conversation become convo? i feel i'm missing out on the dumbing down of the english language.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:26pm Valley Girl:

"Vacation" is *so* much work to say, duh!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:26pm glenn:

and don't even get me started on lol, fachrissake.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:27pm Holly in NC:

Catching up here, Evan...
10 minutes after the last time you played Starbreaker I espied someone downloading 'Sound of Summer' from my soulseek account ... and yes, said person had been listening to your show, & in fact is one of your fellow djs!
I really like the new Ettes lp. And Ivan Julian, I kinda assumed his lp w/b lame. I was SO wrong!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:27pm Julie:

Thank you Holly!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:27pm efd:

On the other hand, today I saw someone use the word "efforting" twice.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:28pm efd:

alright, good to know I am creating demand in the marketplace! :)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:29pm Holly in NC:

@Down In NC -
Sadly, no. You'll have to catch 'em via this grand world wide web thingy ;-)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:29pm cheri:

that's cool danne,,i hope you strike it rich!!
evan & julie no plans for the weekend yet??
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:31pm glenn:

jesus cheri, can't you take a hint?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:31pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I forgot how great and different this record sounded then (and still sounds now)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:32pm efd:

Michael, I have to (and I will) credit WFMU's Dave Mandl for tweeting about this LP earlier today and putting the bug in my ear.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:32pm Kat:

@Michael - me too! Sounded great following the Liminanas.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:33pm T-Zero:

As far as I'm concerned, you could play the entire lovich album.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:34pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Kat & EFD--there is an entire Lene Lovich concert from Studio 54 (circa 1980?) on Youtube--it's more than an hour but well worth seeing
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:34pm dave:

my power just came back on a few hours ago after being out since early sunday morning and "noisy song" was EXACTLY what i needed to hear. thanks!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:34pm Down in NC:

I just put WXDU on my iTunes, but I'm staying here tonight
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:36pm Kat:

Michael, I will check that out! I was lucky enough to see her live in Chicago, 1981 or 2.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:37pm Joe B:

why would you assume the Ivan julian Lp would be lame? does not compute ...
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:37pm Stevel:

So, lots of new listeners. That's great!. Think there are more than 12? Less that 14?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:38pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Kat--the Lovich show is great and a great time capsule--Thomas Dolby plays keyboards pre Blinded Me with Science, and Jim Fouratt (who ran Danceteria in NY) introduces the show
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:39pm Danne D:

That Cute Lepers song was excellent
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:39pm Dave B:

tappin out for now.

It's been a mad, mad, mad, mad,mad,mad week...
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:40pm Holly in NC:

@Dave -
how cool!

@Down in NC -while I'm closely affiliated with 'xdu. you're currently making the right choice :-)

@Joe b - Age. Very few people keep their edge.

Everyone - y'all realize we have to stay up way too late tonight for Noah's show EGOTRIPPIN !!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:41pm Danne D:

@Down in NC - have you seen the 10+ years worth of archived shows yet?

Here's the most recent archives:
http://www.wfmu.org/recentarchives.php

Each show has it's own page full of archived shows - for example here's Evan's:

http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/ED
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:42pm Greg:

Evan, I didn't know that you worked for Stiff America... very cool!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:43pm John L.:

Hey, Joe B. I had my doubts about the Julian LP when I first heard about it. Maybe because he hadn't made a solo record and I hadn't given him much thought. Now it's one of my favorites of the year.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:43pm Danne D:

Paterson Silks. Now closed:

http://nymag.com/listings/stores/paterson_silks03/
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:43pm Danne D:

Evan's show is but scratching the surface of his coolness, I believe, Greg.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:45pm Down in NC:

@Danne D - I'll check the archived stuff out thats go to be alot Thanks

@Holly in NC - I'm not a UNC fan, I'm sure the radio is fine but I'm a Duke fan
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:47pm efd:

someday I'll tell you all the story of how the president of Stiff America tested his office sound system with "Fantasy" by Aldo Nova.

Actually that's pretty much the story right there.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:47pm Holly in NC:

I do love me some red Mass.
Any other Canadian bands coming up, Evan...? '
@Down in NC -
Don't even MENTION the tarholes. I'm a Blue Devil fan through & through. But I *have* to give props to xyc.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:47pm Julie:

Plans for the weekend? I figured I'd spend it sleeping on the floor of studio C
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:48pm Julie:

as far as Rat songs go..I really like Dave Davies's Rats..(no relation)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:49pm Holly in NC:

Dogbowl's "Rat Attacks Flan" is my fave rat song
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:50pm Julie:

oooh this is cool
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:50pm Holly in NC:

I'm so glad Jeff & Jane are getting a lot of airplay.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:51pm cheri:

well evan & julie i guess i'm not wanted in here tonight so keep on rocking guys!!! good night
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:51pm Julie:

How did I not KNOW these people? First the Lovich album now THIS. I am a bad music fan.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:51pm Greg:

Aldo Nova?!? Stiff was the antithesis to Aldo Nova et al. How utterly incongruous!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:52pm Kat:

Julie, you and Clay were amazing last weekend. I came home early Saturday night and wondered if WFMU was on, ended up falling asleep to your show, woke up and you were STILL ON. Troupers.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:52pm efd:

Julie, it's funny you say that about this J&J Hudson, considering what I have cued up next...
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:53pm Vegas:

What's the over/under on the exact minute when cheri comes back with one more thing like freakin' Columbo?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:53pm Julie:

@Kat thank you... it was the goldfish and cherry coke
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:54pm Julie:

darnit Davies how MANY new old things am I going to have to seek out today because of you and Mandl
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:54pm efd:

Greg, exactly! But I have to say, that Aldo Nova album sounds freekin' fantastic at loud volume on a quality stereo!

I think it may also have been a demonstration of Bob Clearmountain's technical prowess.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:55pm Julie:

oooh I was just thinking about asking you for Black Ice..I played them this week too (I think..it's all a blur)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:55pm Julie:

Columbo was cool
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:56pm efd:

I'd think you played just about everything in the building this week!
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:56pm Holly in NC:

@Julie -
You are not!
And wouldn't it be horrible if there were no more musical discoveries to be made?
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:56pm Stevel:

Julie: A blur? Surprised you're conscious. Nice overnight work on the storm. .
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:56pm Julie:

no. I didn't play any Jandek.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:57pm Holly in NC:

Oh, now see I don't know this (Black Ice) & I REALLY like
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:57pm Julie:

@Steve thank you, sir. I slept..um..yesterday. :)
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:57pm Julie:

This Black Ice is so cool..no pun intended.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:57pm Jandek:

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.
  Wed. 8/31/11 10:57pm efd:

Greg, the next one's for you!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:03pm Greg:

EFD, I am shocked and honored!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:06pm erika:

i like your show too much! stop! and by stop i mean keep going
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:07pm Julie:

Jeff & Jane were the Rentals
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:09pm Julie:

not to be confused with the Rentals
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:10pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Shouldn't Les Savy Fav be playing at Le Poisson Rouge?
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:10pm ?:

?
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:10pm Holly in NC:

Yes, not THOSE Rentals!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:11pm Duh:

NOT to be confused with The Condo Fucks

  Wed. 8/31/11 11:13pm Kat:

WHAT. Labelle covered Thunderclap Newman?!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:14pm Danne D:

The Revolution has been having trouble selling its broadcasting rights.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:14pm Down in NC:

Thanks to EFD for great music, thanks to Julie for introducing me to FMU this weekend (this weekend was the first time I listened to FMU, y'all were great) and thanks to Holly in NC for the great info...GO BLUE DEVILS
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:14pm Kat:

...And mashed it up with Gil Scott-Heron. *head asplode*
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:14pm tranewreck:

thunderclap newman by way of GSH.

  Wed. 8/31/11 11:14pm Duh:

@Holly: And you are obviously the wedding planner :-P
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:15pm Duh:

The revolution will not be getting residuals.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:15pm VY:

Revo-what-now?
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:16pm john:

So cool that it makes the entire concept of the mash-up obsolete 30 years before it was invented. And thank heaven for that.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:19pm Holly in NC:

I firmly believe Bill Withers is the most underrated 70s soul artist. And this is a great lp.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:21pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--I met James Gadson the other night (he's the drummer on most of the Bill withers records)
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:21pm Danne D:

g'night Down in NC!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:22pm john:

I firmly believe Holly is absolutely right on both counts!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:23pm Stevel:

Listening and just realizing how wide this show is swinging, (successfully too!)
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:24pm Stevel:

...and circling back!! God I love good radio.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:25pm Emily:

this is a good song
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:26pm Duh:

Wipe Out!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:29pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--that would be "add" justments
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:29pm Stevel:

Creepy Wipe out!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:29pm Danne D:

Evan what do you mean you haven't seen that documentary that I haven't seen!!!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:29pm Duh:

yep
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:30pm Stevel:

I also have not seen the documentary in question, however, some of us are held to higher standards.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:31pm john:

Totally different Withers doc comment--we saw it and both walked away thinking we'd just seen a film about maybe the nicest all-around human being we'd ever come across.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:31pm Documentary:

I haven't seen myself either
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:33pm Holly in NC:

@John -
You've just put that doc at the top of my things to do/see list!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:37pm Holly in NC:

@Documentary -
Helps if you stop gazing in the punch bowl.
Though the swirly melting sherbet designs are pretty...
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:45pm Danne D:

I gotta pack up gang. Thanks for another top notch show, Evan!

Have a great weekend everyone!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:46pm Michael from the Left Coast:

nicely done efd
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:46pm Holly in NC:

EFD, you have an amazing talent for finding & non-ironically & appreciatively sharing the major labels' 'almost-made its' greatest songs. Big props!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:48pm John L.:

Happy Birthday to Glenn Tilbrook!!!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:48pm Michael from the Left Coast:

amazing that they could reproduce that tom sound so well
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:48pm VY:

Twofer Wednesday - I heard "Messed Around" on the local indie station this aft
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:50pm efd:

Holly, thanks very much for that compliment - I really appreciate!

Michael (or anyone), any insight on these re-recordings that are so close to the originals? Is it a way for the artist to release the songs when they don't have rights to the original masters?
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:52pm john:

I think that's pretty much what this Squeeze album was about--letting Tilbrook and Difford make some money off their own songs.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:52pm VY:

I've got a "novelty song" compilation CD that has an alt version of Midnight at the Oasis - I suspect your suspicion is correct EFD
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:55pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Hit the anil on the head John and EFD-the record companies were licensing the master recordings of the Squeeze songs and Squeeze figured we could remake them and license them cheaper and keep all the money instead of sharing it with the record company (this practice is quite common these days, it was especially prevalent when Rock Band and Guitar Hero were licensing tracks)
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:55pm Holly in NC:

This Shark 7in is another fave, thanks, Evan!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:55pm Shelley explains:

"The original records now sound like demos," Shelley explains in the press materials. "These new versions, honed by years on the road, showcase the songs as we know they should be, the way we know audiences love to hear them."
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:56pm John L.:

Pete Shelley is wrong.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:57pm Hint:

@John L.: Money alters people's thinking process. Occasionally.
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:57pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Agreed John L--especially the vocal processing on the high notes. Other than that it's not bad--just that the originals are better
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:57pm VY:

@John L - He CAN touch it?
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:59pm 12539:

Great show, Evan!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:59pm Holly in NC:

Agree with 12539!
  Wed. 8/31/11 11:59pm VY:

*sniff* *tear*
  Thu. 9/1/11 12:01am Maxwell Smart:

The old toggle trick. Gets 'em Every Time.
  Thu. 9/1/11 12:04am 99:

Oh, Max.
  Thu. 9/1/11 12:05am Maxwell Smart:

He was This Close.
  Fri. 9/2/11 12:20am Holly in NC:

I just now saw that Sherbet pic. Thanks a lot, Evan - my sleep tonight is not going to be pleasant! Yikes!
  Fri. 9/2/11 1:00am Holly in NC:

(Archive listening) This DMZ demo just woke me up out of a very solid, exhausted doze, which even 13 women barely penetrated. LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Fri. 9/2/11 1:09am efd:

Sherbet are clearly enjoying the afterglow of the luxury ticket bubble bath.
