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.

Ah, summer is upon us, as well as a nasty looking storm heading down from Chicago. Let me know if it kills me, please.

At least I'll go down with great radio as my soundtrack.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 9:07pm Holly in NC:

Hello RRN63 & Stevel, sweltering here but no storms thank goodness. I will send good thoughts your way.

Here in NorthNewEngland (NH) we get nine months of dreary long Winter - but generally get to skip the titanic Disasters...

Rockspurs were power pop from New Jersey right?

Groove Train is groovy... great cover!

Hi Evan & hi to all on line.

@Loretta - gorgeous kitty!

That was some mighty fine disco there. Assuming there is such a thing.

oh there is! And I'll find it!

Now can we have a Martin Hannett production for the trifecta?! OMD or New Order would work here.

ha, good point Eddy!

Stretch original is really quite amazing. I hope you like, efd!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 9:42pm Stevel:

Not dead yet. Still hot. Would take death if preceded by cold.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 9:45pm Holly in NC:

@Stevel - I so commiserate. Ice packs are your friend. Forehead, neck and back of knees.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 9:47pm Holly in NC:

Evan, this fancy rosy is great!!!!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 9:48pm efd:

Best song I've heard off it, am now obsessed. Thank you!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 9:49pm Stevel:

Oh, I'm reserving the ice for the Tecate. I'm being very manly and waiting in the garage for Armageddon to hit. There are worse ways to go.

Love the new color scheme!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:00pm Stevel:

Temp just dropped by ten degrees. This should be good.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:02pm Holly in NC:

@Stevel, I hope you have a safe place....

Hey, Evan.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- still calling it the 'derecho'?...
- Seriously, safety 1st, man...
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:06pm Stevel:

Thank you for asking. Basement is about 15 seconds away. Former News photog. rather see it coming.

Last year's derecho was pretty amazing. They say it went from here to NYC in three hours. Do the math.

This storm doesn't look the same.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:06pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly that kitkat is really cute.

She is, isn't she? Itty Bitty, found all starved & burr-covered near a dumpster about 10 yrs ago. Alpha cat and my #1 sleep buddy.

har-dee-har, UM. And heighdy-ho.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

Hi Evan. I'm sorry I'm such a snotty sonuvabitch. But not very...I have you in one ear and hockey in the other.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:14pm KP:

Adios to verma.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:16pm Dave B:

They shoulda closed with this on the 3rd. Killer show all the same

Liking the new Stranglers. Not compelled to compare it to past work, but frankly, you can see the connections.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:19pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:19pm Uncle Michael:

I guess. I really don't get how this lineup can really be called The Stranglers.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bruins are leading the Blackhawks at this time.
  Wed. 6/12/13 10:21pm KP:

Oh who were artful dodger ...
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:21pm efd:

well it's still 3/4ths of the original members on the album. I think they're entitled to the name. Live might be a different story since (the 74-year-old) Jet Black isn't fully participating.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:22pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

This has been a nice refreshing night of shows. My 7SD loyalty has at times been lost by the drifting 7pm slot. Nice to have a fresh steady lineup of Distort Jersey City and The Pounding System with Clay to create a whole new bridge to EFD. A good night.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:22pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Holy smokes, its the dodger.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:23pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

My upstairs neighbors moved out so the house no longer shakes when the Bruins score, and I lose track of their progress.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:23pm Uncle Michael:

the house would be shaking now
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:25pm Danne D:

Wonder if EFD will give a HHDYDTYFBBL update. My team is awful and is like 9th (but at least I'm ahead of Skirkie)

  Wed. 6/12/13 10:27pm KP:

Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:27pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Goggle search of "HHDYDTYFBBL" generates a not-surprisingly low count of results.
  Wed. 6/12/13 10:28pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Virginia for Artful Dodger (four albums actually--3 on a major one on an indie if I recall correctly)
  Wed. 6/12/13 10:28pm KP:

Yes Fairfax, Va.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:29pm Danne D:

s'up KP

Btw, I always wonder about the radio ads (local here to NYC-area) where he says "Tell 'em Gary Stanley sent you". I mean how many people really do that?
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:31pm Dave B:

@Pete from Boston (and NJ)


Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:31pm Danne D:

I have to go to a graduation that evening so I can't make it :(

I'd so pwn all of WFMU at pinball too :(

Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:32pm Dave B:

well, that failed...

Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:33pm Danne D:

Hoping for a good 8-overtime game to come home to :)
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:33pm Stevel:

Dave McG and Faye both have terrific shows.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:33pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Dave, that's how I know how few results (one) said search generates, but I appreciate the gesture.

Nice bass line lift from Memphis Soul Stew

Hi Danne! Was walking dogs when you arrived. And KP, UM, all other funk fans :-)

hi Holly
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:41pm Danne D:

Hiya Holly :)
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:42pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I just realized this game is not on cable, and thus it is now on silently before me.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:43pm Holly in NC:

Evan, so far this set is blowing my little mind
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The game is streaming on nbcsports.msnbc.com if you don't have the NBC Sports channel on your TV system.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:47pm Stevel:

Holly: Right with you. Great set.

Pretty sure I'd put on a few miles to see Wax Idols.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:48pm Uncle Michael:

tonight's game is on NBC proper
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:48pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

It's also on straight-up NBC.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:49pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

What UM said.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good deal. More people able to watch hockey.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:51pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:51pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

OT! Cats can finally eat.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:52pm Stevel:

Oooooh. Raining good now. Keep the tunes coming!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:55pm efd:

As long as it's just rain and nothing more serious!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:56pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Evan, really now, more serious than rain?

Synth stings going through head like little arrows
  Wed. 6/12/13 10:57pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Doesn't this sound like a Hollies tune? I'm stunned at how broad Giorgio Moroder can be
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 10:58pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Intermission smoked pig from earlier this evening...
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:01pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I can no longer hear Giorgio Moroder without thinking, "I have a song, it goes 'bew bow bow'...."
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:01pm Stevel:

Raining in sheets. Lots of electricity. Best show in town.

Bad stuff is mostly elsewhere
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:01pm Uncle Michael:


Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:03pm Danne D:

Thanks Ken - I will now fully strain the patience of the Starbucks wireless here by trying to stream that
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:03pm Droll:

I heard that!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:04pm Danne D:

LOL I think Evan is doing all these "amateur" goofs tonight to try to solidify his place on the December schedule ahead of time :D
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:05pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I accidentally misheard/read that the Replacements are playing. Silly me.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:06pm Uncle Michael:

The Replacements are playing.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:07pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Maybe I have found my birthday plan after all -- Toronto is a doable weekend...
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:07pm Stevel:

UM: Saw that on Tommy Stinson's Twitter. Very cool. Pretty sure I've already told the story about the night I did NOT do cocaine with the Replacements.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:08pm Uncle Michael:

I'm shooting for Chicago.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:08pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

That's a sort of stupidly patronizing lineup for us oldsters. Works for me, though.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:08pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not doing blow with the Mats RIGHT NOW.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:09pm Uncle Michael:

Patronize me more.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:19pm Stevel:

I am also still not doing blow with the Mats.

Chicago is a possibility.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:21pm Uncle Michael:

Wife's birthday weekend. I can't go.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:22pm Stevel:

So, giving her a ticket would not be a good present? (Mine either).
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:22pm Carmichael:

Hiya Evan. Been listening while doing finances. Great set, particularly Rodion. OMD and all the other bands.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:22pm Uncle Michael:

Not so much.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...did see Mats on acid (I don't even smoke anymore) ...never one for putting powders up me nose...
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:23pm Stevel:

Toronto it is!!
  Wed. 6/12/13 11:24pm Holly in NC:

I'm assuming your wives have other redeeming qualitues... ;-)
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:24pm efd:

Hey, thanks Carmichael! Hopefully no errors were caused by listening to my show!
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:25pm Stevel:

RRN63: Neither was I, but they were digging in and I stood, briefly, hopefully by. Westerberg gave me his trademark 'Yeaaaahh, sure" face and turned away to business.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:25pm Uncle Michael:

Indeed, Holly.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:26pm Stevel:

Holly: Of course. Great tolerance of idiosyncrasies for one.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:27pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

GF is very interested in 2000s bands, not very interested in 1990s, 1980s. This is something of a divide between us. She would be humoring me by going to this.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Looks like Mavis Staples is on The Daily Show tonight.
  Wed. 6/12/13 11:30pm Holly in NC:

I still go to shows w my ex-husband & his new wife - he & I love same music, she loves him. And she's a great person. He def. traded up from me ! :-)
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:31pm Stevel:

Holly: Bullshit,I say! (Although peaceful co-existence is nice.)
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:32pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

This game... my god.
  Wed. 6/12/13 11:32pm James Loney:

Yeah! Don't hate.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:32pm Uncle Michael:

I know what shows to take the Mrs. to. An aging alt rocker festival ain't one of them.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:38pm Uncle Michael:

2nd OT coming
  Wed. 6/12/13 11:43pm Michael from the Left Coast:

what celluloid new release? I used to work there
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:46pm efd:

it's not a Celluloid release - it's a 2-CD set on Strut of songs that were previously released on Celluloid.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:46pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

This is the second time this playoffs I've come in late to a game and had an equivalent number of OT periods to what I missed. Who says professional sports doesn't look out for the fan?
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:48pm efd:

Kind of like what happened to me on Monday when I put the Red Sox game on in the 6th or 7th inning.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:49pm Carmichael:

Mrs. Carmichael wanted to go see Blondie last summer. I went with her because Devo was opening. It's all about the give and take.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 11:50pm Stevel:

I'd call Blondie/Devo (retro even) a win-win.
