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

Listener comments!

  11:09pm Amanda:

Yay for "Where's Captain Kirk"! I was psyched.
  11:12pm efd:

yay for being psyched!
  11:14pm Amanda:

Yay for this being my favorite opening efd set of all time!
  11:14pm john:

And good evening everyone! The Professionals record is doing it for me--I dropped my copy of the single (with poster sleeve!) on the way home from college one June and lost a big chunk of vinyl. Still played, mostly.
  11:17pm efd:

yeah, i don't know what ever happened to my poster sleeve. :(

It's funny, I was telling myself the last couple of days that I wasn't going to do a live band-related set after doing that last week and, well, here we are!
  11:22pm Amanda:

A classy move, I think. Them Cute Lepers are going to kill.
  11:28pm Sybil:

That transition from "Beat your heart out" to Lionel Newman was... interesting.
  11:31pm john:

Oh, annoyingly, had to turn down Dodger tickets for this Thursday afternoon, won't be there til Friday or Saturday, dammit! Tried to change my travel plans, but to no avail.
  11:33pm Sybil:

:( John
  11:35pm Jason:

Wow it's a great Tuesday evening, with the Zeros and all. Psyched for this live set
  11:39pm Stanley:

wow the cute lepers are awesome.
thanks evan!
  11:40pm efd:

thank YOU, Stanley! And Jason!

John, that sucks about the Dodgers game!! Hi Sybil!
  11:49pm efd:

seriously, how good is this band?!

[pats self on back]
  11:51pm E.L.:

Seriously— tons of fun.
  11:56pm Amanda:

They're so good I'm having trouble thinking of enthusiasm words to express how good they are. I rejected "wyckyd."
  11:57pm stanley again:

so good I can't go to bed yet even though I need to get up early
  12:00am efd:

Amanda, how about "poptastic"?

Stanley, luckily for you this is the last song!
  12:01am efd:

oh, and Sybil, re the transition: that's *exactly* why I did it! :)
  12:01am stanley:

is luckily the right word?
  12:03am efd:

only because you have to get up early!
  12:03am Amanda:

Stanley, you are staying up. Too much adrenaleen bumping around after that!

"Poptastic" = good, but I think there needs to be a swear word in there.
  12:06am Laurie:

Boo. Florida needs love. :(

Re: Prostitute motels. Every motel -- or hotel -- is a prostitute joint. I just found out an unnamed punk rock legend stayed at the hotel I just booked for my annual October New York vacay. This person apparently hired a $2,000 hipster hooker to force feed him dog food, as I learned whilst reading Radar. This hotel is also home to Gordon Ramsay's restaurant, so it's home to all kinds of whores. Ho-ooooo!
  12:10am Laurie:

Addendum: MIAMI needs love. We are lucky if we get one really cool band to come down here per month. :(
  12:11am Stanley:

I've gotta check the rest of the archive out tomorrow. Thanks again Evan, great show so far!
  12:18am john:

I just heard today that two of my best friends in LA are moving to Miami, but they're not pop stars. Yet, anyway.
  12:28am efd:

unnamed punk rock legend <> Jarvis Cocker, I presume.

I don't think the Cute Lepers could really hear me when I was asking them to tell me the story of what they saw at the hotel.
Which is probably just as well.

Stanley, glad you liked the show!
  12:32am efd:

I have to say, if I were in a touring band I don't think I'd want to play in south Florida either. Or Maine, for that matter.
  12:38am Laurie:

Hey! Don't talk about Jarv like that.

I really wish the folks at Radar would have risked a slander lawsuit and printed his name. I'm going to guess it's not Merle Allin since I don't think he can afford to stay at the London. Also, I wouldn't consider him a legend. Personally.
  12:41am john:

Teenage Filmstars/The Times/just plain Ed Ball rawk. What's wrong with Maine, other than moose trying to crash the show, antlers getting in the way of people trying to see the band?
  12:44am efd:

nothing against Maine (or Florida, for that matter) in and of themselves, I was just saying that from a navigational perspective.
  12:56am efd:

so, anyone want to take bets on whether the Yankees will be tied for fourth place after tomorrow's game?
  1:01am Sybil:

What are these Yankees of which you speak?
  1:03am Sybil:

Oh, wait. Didn't they used to play baseball or something like that?
  1:06am efd:

heh... yeah, that's them!
  1:09am efd:

did I really hear correctly that Pavano has developed some kind of "soreness" just as he was finally about to be called up?
  1:11am Laurie:

Pavano has the herps?
  1:12am Sybil:

"normal soreness" per Girardi
  1:13am Listener David:

Ummmm...Yankees suck..Mets rule!
  1:17am Sybil:

There are two Major League pitchers named Buchholz, and they are apparently unrelated to each other.

Taylor's way cute.
  1:21am Laurie:

Oh, Rick Springfield! What happened to you?
  1:21am trailer:

Why evan, why?
  1:22am Qfwfq:

I was going to guess Bernie Goetz
  1:22am HR:

Robyn Hitchcock
  1:26am efd:

Oh come on, it wasn't that bad!
  1:27am efd:

(bear in mind, you're dealing with someone who plays April Wine on a semi-regular basis)
  1:30am john:

I like the new Rick Springfield! And be nice to the Yankees, the rest of us NEED minor league baseball.
  1:30am Droll:

Funny that Von Hayes song uses the riff from Rick Springfields' "I've done everything for you"...
and still not nearly enough April Wine, I say.
  1:32am john:

Putting it all together...Von Hayes, a band named for a ballplayer. Others?
  1:35am Droll:

I didn't get the AC/DC riff, but that's uncanny because tonight I met the drummer from an all-girl AC/DC tribute band! The circle is now complete.
  1:46am efd:

i'm not sure if this circle can be any completer, but I will just add that I used to be a drummer in a mixed-gender AC/DC cover band.
  1:52am Droll:

Our circle is indeed, somehow more circler than before.
You're already soooooo my favorite DJ -- to also be sooooo my favorite drummer you must first perform Four Horsemen by Aphrodites' Child with the Hoof 'n' Mouth.
  11:16am Fraser T.:

Pinky Allin can well afford to stay at the London considering all the money he rakes in on the back of his talented younger brother. But who is interested in that cock? I mean, he hasn't actually fucking done ANYTHING (apart from happen to be related to a famous person). Also he doesn't drink or misbehave, just pretends to be outrageous. Who knows who the unnamed 'punk legend is', but I am damn curious
