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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Options March 6, 2019: 2019 FUNDRAISING MARATHON WEEK 1 with special guest co-host MATT FIVEASH!

Listen to this show: MP3 - 128K | | Add or read comments



It's the first week of the 2019 WFMU fundraising Marathon! WFMU is a completely independent, non-commercial, listener-supported radio station, and everyone who's on the air here does their show for free. Not only that but we don't get paid! The money you generously pledge is used almost entirely for services and inanimate objects! (outside of a small and dedicated paid staff)

Please make a pledge NOW of $75 or more, or even better $10/month or more (I said or more), and you'll AUTOMATICALLY get my premium CD What About The '80s? (pictured above)! Finally the answer to the question everyone’s been asking! Expect post-punk, new wave, indie, dancey, and maybe just the teensiest bit of hair metal. All from my own collection, digitized and sequenced just for you.

PLUS! Pledge $75 or more NOW -- or, even better, $10 a month! -- and get get in the running for my Grand Prize: the AC/DC 5-CD box set Bonfire!
ONE lucky pledger will win it at the end of tonight's show! Will it be you? Not unless you pledge TONIGHT to get in the running! Pledge NOW before you forget! Thank you!
