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.

John in Parsippany:
Thanks for your excellent broadcast tonight. Happiest of Holidays to you and yours EFD, and to the whole WFMU gang.

Fine show. It's been a long while since I last heard "Santafly."
Wed. 12/19/07 8:42am
Great show. Small Xmas request if I may... Root Boy Slim and the Rootettes (out of DC) have the classic 'Christmas at K-Mart' featuring the immortal line 'the mood ring counter is all aglow'. I haven't heard it in ages and would be grateful if you or someone could dig out a copy. Thanks and happy Xmas.
Sat. 12/22/07 8:33pm
wow, look at all these post-show comments!
@Vincent, I won't be doing another Christmas show but maybe I can dig that Root Boy Slim track up for next year. (I think it's on one of those "new wave" or "alternative" Christmas comps.
@Ben - thanks! "Santafly" was a last-minute grab from my basement, glad I thought of it before I left home that night.
@John - thanks for your comment, I appreciate it especially since I was having second thoughts about the Christmas spirit as the show progressed - glad you enjoyed it.
@lorac - Of course! that must be it... I have to admit to not being familiar with that version of "Silent Night," but that makes perfect sense.
@Sabrina, sorry I didn't get to any Sinatra tunes.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
