Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from September 21, 2011 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.

anna canna punna
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:06pm Pilate:

Give them Barrabas!
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:07pm JHC:

Barrabas: Why waste your time, moaning at the crowd?
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:08pm PB:

Following up on last week's exhaustive discussion about Marc Bolan, guess who is on the cover of this month's Uncut magazine. Are we in the midst of a Marc Bolan revivial?
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:10pm Marc:

I never really went away, babe.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:12pm Frisco Kid:

When I think of the millions of times I passed over this Charlie record. And it's actually kinda tolerable! Whooda thunkit.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:14pm Frisco Kid:

SAUSALITO!!!! Yer killin' me - thanks.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:14pm Julie:

Marc is timeless :)
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:15pm Julie:

it was also the anniversary of Marc's death last week.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:15pm miketp:

is that marin county?was there. it was beautiful
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:16pm Aharon:

Anyone else think that Charlie song borrows from Queen's You're My Best Friend? Interesting place to find inspiration.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:19pm Frisco Kid:

Yes, Sausalito is in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge....
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:20pm Marc:

I died two weeks short of 30. The 30th of this month would have been my "When I'm 64" birthday. Time flies!
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:26pm miketp:

thanks frisco and great show evan really like the selections.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:26pm efd:

Hi everyone! Thanks for listening and commenting, will try to be more chatty in a bit...
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:28pm Aharon:

Boy, Soft Tags really are great. I'm happy this show has single-handedly shoved them down the east coast's throat.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:42pm calzone!:

I wonder if these guys ever hang out at 'The Regal Beagle'?
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:47pm Frisco Kid:

Yep, the geography of "Sausalito Summer Night" has always bugged me silly. Since they blew a gasket on the Grapevine (I-5, middle of the state), they were driving north from LA apparently, so what were they doing north of Frisco in Sausalito? Makes no sense.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:49pm calzone!:

A New Afternoon Show Classic!
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:49pm John F.:

@Frisco: Oh lord, stuck in Lodi again.
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:49pm calzone!:

I wanna hang out @ 99 Records now!
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:50pm efd:

@Frisco (and everyone), allow me to refer you to http://tinyurl.com/3h3gber
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:51pm calzone!:

Too many creeps!
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:51pm efd:

@calzone! - Yes indeed!

Hi John, Julie, Aharon, Mark, PB, miketp and everyone else!
  Wed. 9/21/11 9:58pm Frisco Kid:

Thanks, Evan! And John F., I was actually stuck in Lodi once. I also have a picture of my parents standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona....
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:00pm John F.:

Are you Don's son? :-P
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:05pm Aharon:

Aaah! It took me two weeks to get this out of my head the last time I heard it.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:06pm efd:

@Aharon perhaps it will addle your brain enough for you to suddenly fall out of first place in the efd Happy How Do You Do To You fantasy baseball league.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:08pm efd:

Not that I was thinking that when I put it on, of course.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:09pm Aharon:

Don't stop thinkin' about tomorrow, Evan.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:09pm John F.:

Put me in, coach!
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:21pm G:

I'm supposed to be with family in Baltimore this weekend, including for an Orioles game against the Red Sox Monday. Given the season the Os have had, the biggest things on Os fans' minds at this point is hopefully being the ones who can put the big bad Red Sox out of their "September choke" misery, and they don't try to hide it...
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:29pm efd:

G, I don't doubt it! Have fun if you go to the game, I went down earlier this year - always enjoy visiting Camden Yards.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:32pm G:

We'll see how it goes. I'm not really a rooter. The Yankees never need much help, but I grew up in Detroit and first rooted for the Tigers (1968), and on top of that I have brothers in Tampa and Baltimore. That leaves me with pretty divided AL East loyalties...
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:33pm PB:

This is from an AMG review of Europe '72, Volume 2 (and I thought Keith Jarrett's 10 record Sun Bear Concerts was excessive!).
The set features good sound and the kind of loose performances that Grateful Dead fans treasure in live recordings, though true completists will want the limited-edition, unbelievably large, 73-CD collection Europe '72: The Complete Recordings, issued by Rhino the same month as this relatively modest double CD.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:35pm Stevel:

Dandy show, per usual. Head down, catching up on work at home. Sucks much less with efd.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:36pm Holly in NC:

One of my customers is best friends with a close friend of Derek Jeter. My customer celebrates a significant birthday this weekend. Derek has arranged for a flight to the city, a suite at the Essex, limo service to the stadium, & tix for all 3 games for my customer & his wife & his 2 kids. AND I FORGOT TO ASK FOR DEREK'S AUTOGRAPH. That is all.

Oh yeah - Hi Evan & friends! ;-)
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:38pm Holly in NC:

YES!
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:39pm efd:

Holly, weirdly enough I'd cued this up before you commented! That's some story.

Hi Steve, thanks for checking in - glad I can make the work catch-up a little easier.
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:50pm Stevel:

Pelican pants? Count me in!
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:53pm josh:

I love that song "the law" by art yard... thanks for playing it Evan!
  Wed. 9/21/11 10:58pm Holly in NC:

Thanks for the Notekillers - ooh -who is this? Birds of Avalon? New to me. I like! Anyone know anything about them?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:02pm Holly in NC:

I swear I'm not a plant in the audience!
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:03pm Botanist:

Not a plant? An animal, then?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:04pm Honking Palmetto Bug:

She sho nuff aint no insect.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:06pm Holly in NC:

No, I'm a blushing Victorian maiden. Gracious me.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:07pm Honking Palmetto Bug:

We'll play along.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:07pm Holly in NC:

OK, really I'm a bawdy wench with a fondness for big "bugs".
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:10pm Honking Palmetto Bug:

Women have such a tough time making up their minds sometimes. :-) It was days before I figured out whether she felt sympathy for me or was gonna squish me. :-P
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:11pm jmd:

oh yeah! I'm feeling a jam coming on like we haven't heard since Devestator! Thanks.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:19pm Holly in NC:

So I'm conflicted!
I have decided to limit my interspecies antipathy to things that bite me. Without my permission.
However, I must apologize to Evan for not expressing appropriate empathy for his big huge honking something experience of several weeks ago.
Honking, some of your relatives are just plain.. scary. Like 'Deliverance' scary.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:20pm Honking Palmetto Bug:

We just have way the fuck too many legs. Two would suffice, four would be plenty.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:26pm Holly in NC:

Worst nightmare: a millipede with earwig pinchers, silverfish speed, slug texture, wolf spider fur, and 'palmetto bug' wings.

I just scared myself into my parents' bedroom ..wait - they're dead?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:27pm efd:

I still can't get over the fact that a moth flew into Matt Holliday's ear (he's a basball player) and they had to take it out with tweezers, I think.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:28pm Honking Palmetto Bug:

Now you're giving poor efd the willies, as his anxious glance scans the leak-stained ceiling!
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:29pm Holly in NC:

I love that the Cheater Slicks are still kickin'.
EFD, why did their hometown dislike them so?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:35pm Roy Wood:

Didn't I do Glitter Wizzard about 1972?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:37pm Holly in NC:

I am honestly, really, truly spider phobic. And I always keep a glass of water by my bed. You can guess where this anecdote is going... vomit, tears, screams, palpitations, etc etc...
The glass is now always clear, and covered.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:37pm Lassie:

Arf! Arf! Quick, Timmy, Harry's dowm a well!
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:42pm Andrew Zimmern:

Spiders, an excellent source of fuzzy protein in many cultures.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:42pm Danne D:

Happy Harry's Birthday Evan!!!

Hi Funk Fans :)
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:42pm Rin Tin Tin:

{I am standing by the well}
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:42pm Danne D:

This call being from Vancouver has me imagining a Harry/Nardwuar mash-up
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:45pm Rin Tin Tin:

{Why do you slaver over a neurotic collie when I am so much more beautiful & intelligent?}
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:45pm ?:

Did you say wolf-spider fur, Holly? Now how am I supposed fall asleep?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:45pm Danne D:

Btw, the Fantasy Baseball season ends 1 Week from today - catch all the action here on the Evan Funk Davies Comments Board ;o)
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:46pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne!

@? - I did. Misery loves company ;-)
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:47pm Danne D:

Hi Holly :)

Thanks for the great Harry clips, Evan :)
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:51pm C Thomas in DC:

another innocent black man executed in GA tonight?
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:52pm cheri:

evan oh "lord of the funk" this was a fantastic show,, love ya,, hi danne
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:53pm Noah:

HI!
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:53pm Lassie:

Lookism. Get used to it.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:55pm C Thomas in DC:

but hey, the Yanks clinched division.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:55pm Holly in NC:

I really want that Liminanas 7in, & to date have been thwarted in all my procurement efforts.

Probably by anyone who ever attempted to teach me the niceties of the English language.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:56pm efd:

@Holly, have you tried troubleinmindrecs.com directly?

CT in DC, did that execution happen after all? That's really terrible.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:57pm Holly in NC:

@C Thomas -
I thought he got an 11th hour stay ??!!

Wildly inappropriate to say 'yay' re Yankees in this same comment.so please pretend that I didn't.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:58pm G:

Supreme Court discussed it for four hours this evening, then voted not to re-review the case. Sentence was carried out within an hour after that.
  Wed. 9/21/11 11:59pm C Thomas in DC:

11:08 tonight, EFD. You know it.
  Thu. 9/22/11 12:00am Danne D:

Have a good night Funk Fans!
  Thu. 9/22/11 12:00am C Thomas in DC:

He maintained his innocence right to the very end
  Thu. 9/22/11 12:00am Holly in NC:

Crap.
  Thu. 9/22/11 12:01am Holly in NC:

Well....his innocence is quite debatable - but that's the point.
