I gotta say, Paul Bruno's fill in last week? It was GOOOOOOD. If anyone can step up to that show, it's you @efd

Very best wishes ahead for you EFD!

Hey Steve! Been a while. You're a Go-Betweens fan, right? The recent Robert Forster book, Grant & I, is a must-read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

Good evening.

HNY Evan! Thanks for the reminder to buy the Alicja-pop record! Have you heard the Sweet Knives and Fresh Flesh releases? She's a busy gal with all those and still doing River City Tanlines.

Eddy. Noted! Thanks. How's summer going? Send a bit our way? It's a bit polar around mid America these days.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 9:38pm Dano59:

Prix and Fallen Leaves - pretty outstanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 9:40pm Uncle Michael:

Prix is really unreleased Raspberries tracks, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 9:41pm Uncle Michael:

Evan, you *might* have told me I needed to include Prix in my show last week, eh?

Hah!

And thanks for the plug!
  Wed. 1/4/17 9:45pm Eddy in Australia:

Steve: Erratic summer so far (blame climate change). Heatwave at the moment, and I'm going to an outdoor show with Parquet Courts and EFD fave Terry later. SPF 50!
  Wed. 1/4/17 9:45pm Exile:

I heart alicja-pop so much. I wanna marry her.

oh goddammit!
  Wed. 1/4/17 9:54pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: Thanks! Nice playlist. Love that Jags single. Looks like I'll be adding a few 45s to my wants list.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 9:55pm Dano59:

I forgot those game theory reissues were still going on last year! good call EFD.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 9:56pm Dano59:

Prix and Rexy on my want list, stat!
  Wed. 1/4/17 9:57pm Eddy in Australia:

@EFD: Hoping for two Terry singles in the Top 10!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:00pm efd:

not an unreasonable hope, Eddy, but one that will not be realized.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 10:01pm drewo:

Thanks EFD! Lots here to add to my list. fyi: 'Car 67' was one of my favorites of '16. Cheers!
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:02pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: I'm the last person to be patriotic but couldn't you squeeze in one Australian power pop classic?!

Thumbs up for the Above record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:03pm Uncle Michael:

What Antipodean power poppers from the '70s did I miss?
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:03pm herb.nyc:

Happy new year to all. I should wake up and get some of these, like Fallen Leaves. I have Entertainment Weekly's best-of issue. Ahem, vastly different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:04pm Uncle Michael:

I promise you Skyhooks would make my glam show...if I did one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:04pm efd:

@drewo I'm so happy to hear that! "Car 67" is so great.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:04pm Stevel:

Does/do OBN IIIs keep getting better?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:08pm efd:

@Stevel: somehow, that seems to be the case.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:12pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: Maybe not all '70s, and we might quibble over whether they're all power pop, but Young Modern, Little Murders, and The Riptides.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:15pm Stevel:

Deep Blue. Looking forward to seeing/hearing them live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:18pm Uncle Michael:

The show was exclusively '70s releases, or...for example, The Innocents would have made it in.

I appreciate being schooled about these other artists, who, research indicates, each released one record inthe '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:19pm Uncle Michael:

EFD, have you offered a deli tray?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:21pm Scraps:

@Uncle Michael: Maybe the Swingers?
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:21pm Stevel:

UM: Shrewd negotiator, you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:21pm efd:

I always offer a deli tray!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

Damn...well, that's all I got.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:22pm Scraps:

As in "Counting the Beat"?
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:23pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: Yeah, I had a couple others on my original list who veered into the early '80s and garage/punk territory, didn't realise the '70s timeframe. Definitely check out: the first three LM and first two Riptides singles, and all YM (one LP, one 45).
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:25pm nightjeans:

Jesse just played this on Monday night this song is dope!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:25pm Scraps:

Ah, no, Counting the Beat was 1982. Shoot
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:25pm Uncle Michael:

I should do an all Aussie/Kiwi show, genre and era be damned.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:25pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: There you go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:25pm melinda:

That would be fun, Uncle M
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:26pm efd:

@Scraps I was thinking "Counting The Beat" was post-'70s but wasn't sure. Great song though!
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:27pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: Or, in this case, there you au-go-go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:27pm Scraps:

You could do New Zealand in the 80s, and it would be awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:30pm Uncle Michael:

I love this show, every year, efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:30pm Uncle Michael:

All Flying Nun, Scraps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:31pm Uncle Michael:

The Eyelids used Studio B cover art?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:32pm Scraps:

It doesn't HAVE to be..... but the temptation would be there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:34pm Scraps:

The not-Flying Nun in New Zealand tend to get left out, though
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 10:34pm Chris M.:

year after year one of the absolute best best of the year shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:36pm Mike Sin:

Year-end retrospective shows on WFMU in general, and specifically Evan's, are some of the most informative broadcasts on the station. Reminds me of when I was a kid listening to FM with paper and pencil in hand, furiously writing down info about cool tracks that I was just discovering.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:36pm Eddy in Australia:

@UM: What Scraps said. Even Roger Shepherd (FN boos) admits this in his 2016 memoir.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:38pm Eddy in Australia:

@Mike Sin: I always listen to WFMU with paper and pencil in hand!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:45pm northguineahills:

Yeah, anything Soul Jazz Recs or Larry Levon related is a must!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 10:56pm Uncle Michael:

I'm listening closely for something specific in Beach Baby.
  Wed. 1/4/17 10:56pm Uncle Dirty:

Happy New Year! But is the the steam f'cked up or just me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 10:57pm efd:

pretty sure you'll hear it, if I remember correctly.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 10:57pm Chris M.:

i just hope to God Evan can rebuild his bottle cap collection in 2017. we're all rooting for you, Funk.

Nope...didn't here it. Still very cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 11:02pm Uncle Michael:

I was listening for the tip of the hat to "Let's Go to San Francisco" in the fade.

If I tell people that I like old-school rap, I have that last track and similar in mind, but instead they're like, "You mean like Naughty by Nature? Yeah, I love that too!" and I'm like, uhhh (sigh) sure, whatever.

Bigfoot on this Stairsteps track?
