Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from June 2, 2006 Options

efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

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.

Options June 2, 2006: fill-in for JM in the AM: Mayhem in the AM part 4 (classic postpunk, punk and powerpop!)
For today's show (as well as a couple of shows liike this that i did in 2004 and this one from April) I went through my record collection and pulled out a bunch of favorites from my days as a DJ on WNYU's New Afternoon Show. Usually I mix in a lot of new and somewhat different stuff during my shows (as you'll see if you scan my other playlists), but these shows were devoted to the late 70s and early 80s.
I'm pointing this out so you don't tune in to future shows expecting them to be like this one! But if you like this music then maybe you'll like the other stuff I like now too.

I do fill-ins, not a regularly scheduled show. If you'd like to find out when I'll be on the air next, just email me and i'll add you to my mailing list.
