efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

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.

Always a wonderful Wednesday evening EFD you spinning on this great station yes .. !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 9:14pm efd:

thanks so much Tome!
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:17pm Andrew:

Indeed P-90. Not always doable working the night shift, but I try as often as can.
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:18pm P-90:

Some of the shows on FMU seem to work fine as podcasts one can hear any time. This show (for me) is like Dave the Spazz's show-- I much prefer to hear it while its being done, live.
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:21pm V Priceless:

Hey Evan! Cool sounds!
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:24pm Stevel:

Good evening. Great opening set.

My only pressing question tonight is, should I drag my lazy ass out to see Peelander Z? I mean, its almost six minutes from my house.

not that I want to lose you as a listener for the night, but they're worth seeing
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:27pm daveB from Oakland:

Trickle down funk. sorry, that sounds gross.
Avatar Wed. 11/4/15 9:27pm ottovonbqe:

I always listen to this show as a podcast and just back-timestamp my comments. Works fine.
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:31pm P-90:

@ otto: I gotta figure out how to do that.

Blue Jays guy checking in from Toronto. It could happen next year for the Jays as well. Good to be here, folks.

hi efd. good to hear that elo. thnx
Avatar Wed. 11/4/15 9:35pm ottovonbqe:

@P-90 = simply open the javascript console and post your comment that way with an SQL injection hidden in a comment. Of course, that technique may not be common knowledge yet in 2015.
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:39pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--Pete Solley produced a whole host of records you know and love including Wreckless Eric, the Romantics, Rachel Sweet, the Bus Boys (okay I may be the only one who loves that one) and numerous others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 9:42pm efd:

aha, thanks Michael ftLC! I knew his name was familiar but I couldn't properly place it.
  Wed. 11/4/15 9:44pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I forgot, he also produced Steve Forbert among others

@efd: I embrace any arbitrary ranking I can attach to my name with pride!
  Wed. 11/4/15 10:22pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I Knew You When was pretty killer from Billy Joe Royal as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 10:23pm efd:

I still don't understand why some band hasn't done a killer remake of "Cherry Hill Park."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 10:24pm efd:

not that there's anything wrong with this version.
  Wed. 11/4/15 10:29pm Michael from the Left Coast:

a rare dip into the Neil Diamond songbook
  Wed. 11/4/15 10:33pm Stevel:

All caps is a strong endorsement from efd. May have to pry my carcass off of the couch.

CIA - & he's got a British accent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:02pm efd:

yeah, I can't figure that out either.
  Wed. 11/4/15 11:04pm Ignore Function:

What genre would describe that C.I.A. number?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

In the UK woulda been MI5, right? I guess their objective is to throw us off! & they're Cool Jazz hipsters...in 1974...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Instructional' ?

Iggy Pop +New Order rules !
Avatar Wed. 11/4/15 11:23pm JakeGould:

Which was the number to call for tickets? 201-209-9368? Pretty sure I missed the boat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:27pm efd:

201-200-9368. The 209 number is for call-in shows. As for missing the boat, it depends on which tickets you were thinking of sailing on.
Avatar Wed. 11/4/15 11:29pm JakeGould:

Thanks for the info! There shall be another day and another boat!
  Wed. 11/4/15 11:33pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi Evan - tuning in late tonight, thought something had happened to Pete Solley when I read the comments (he has a history with Australian bands). Any love for Anita Sarko?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:35pm efd:

hey coelacanth, hi Eddy. Shit, I forgot about Anita Sarko... I did offer some brief thoughts on Facebook when I heard that news, but that doesn't really do anyone here any good.

Sorry for the Pete Solley scare!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:36pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Here I thought I was going to catch a lot of the show, only to discover it is 11:35.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:37pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I put on that clip of the Empire State Building flashing to "FM" and suddenly YouTube was having its way with me as I cleaned the house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:47pm efd:

time flies when you're sucked into a youtube vortex! Glad you were able to stop by for a bit nonetheless.
Avatar Wed. 11/4/15 11:57pm JakeGould:

I believe the kids call “Vortexes” “K Holes” nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/4/15 11:58pm coelacanth:

Thanks Evan!
see y'all
