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.

  Wed. 12/19/12 9:05pm SteveL:

I think I see an image in the background. If I stare at it long enough, and keep my eyes just far enough away... A dolphin?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:05pm Mike East:

Happy Funkmas to one and all!

Terrific wallpaper. Yes, it's a dolphin! But it has a Red Sox hat on. Anyone can see that!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:16pm EL:

God bless us everyone— but especially Norton Records.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:17pm SteveL:

jmd:You could be right. My head hurts.

Amen to Norton. How are they doing?

  Wed. 12/19/12 9:22pm SteveL:

What's a frog-rock pan?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:23pm Kat in Chicago:

Thank you for not playing FTONY. I associate it strongly with my horrible ex-husband. Where the hell is this dolphin?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:23pm john:

Hey Evan! That's awesome; not playing Fairytale of New York just leaves more room for Dawnie Iris!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:23pm Jon Anderson:

I see frog rock pans when I get a shipment of really good stuff in.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:23pm SteveL:

Kat: Keep staring. It'll come.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:24pm jmd:

so nice you bought it twice!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:24pm SteveL:

Jon Anderson: Do you also see crocodile teeth? Lizard's blood?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:25pm David (chudleycannons):

What are the odds we'll hear Gunther? :P
Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 9:25pm efd:

Wait, did I really say "frog-rock pan?!"
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:25pm SteveL:

Breath, not blood. Lizard's breath.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:25pm jmd:

The dolphin will come...like a Wakefield pitch, sooner or later.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:25pm SteveL:

Alas, no, you said it correctly.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:25pm Mike East:

I'm sorry, but there is no better version of twelve days of xmas than the Muppets w/ John Denver.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:27pm Mike East:

though this may be a close second :)

SteveL - phew! Bad enough that I let Ken trick me into thinking it was Tuesday for a second this morning.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:29pm SteveL:

"The city of Painesville is the county seat of Lake County, Ohio" -- not far from Cleveland. Convenient name for a song, though :-)

Don't get greedy, emily! :) Although I like the idea of playing that as a Christmas song... not unlike how Hova always used to play Blondie's "I'm Always Touched By Your Presence, Dear"

Happy holidays, Evan! Thanks for a great show! :)

FWIW, that Slade was released in the UK as "Merry Xmas Everybody". They always misspelled something in their titles to sound more working class.

Hi Holly, Happy Hollydays!

@MK: 73 was the year of the Slade, Wizzard, Elton "Christmas single" competition, which Slade won saleswise. Evan played two of the three on this show. That year's "competition" really raised the cultural profile in the UK of the "Christmas single." Here's wiki on that, with a yearly list back to the early 50s:
