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.

Listener comments!

  9:06pm SteveL:

OK, I have not listened to NEARLY enough Stars. That was cool. Very organy, with a touch of Beefheart.
  9:09pm steve:

hi evan, missed your show last week but glad to be back.
  9:10pm SteveL:

Question: WHO IS THE GUITARIST FOR DALE & GRACE?? Pretty slick!
  9:10pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Really captures that Wilsonesque sound. MR. Wilson.
  9:15pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Luv this Housemartins. Their cover of Caravan of Love from the same period is Outstandjng.
  9:15pm SteveL:

Mr. Wilson was some kinda' prick. Knew what he was doing in the studio, it appears.
  9:16pm SteveL:

Barkevious S. and others: Did you catch Dave The Spazz's birthday celebration for Wilson Sr.? http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/45982

or, a decent Elvis take a few weeks back.
Elvis: http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/46979
  9:20pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Steve Heard the Elvis show. A friggin' hoot n' holler. More marching bands!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm efd:

Hey everyone! Got your wish, Barkevious, kind of, though mainly due to neglect on my part.
  9:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I bet thwy do a great Fool for the City.
  9:23pm SteveL:

That was a master seque. [bowing low, backing slightly away]
  9:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

A marching band sure beats that skank Gwen Stefany ruining a football game, even one with Dallas.
  9:30pm SteveL:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm efd:

B. Shabazz, I actually almost opened with Foghat tonight! Not any of their hits, though.

Hi SteveL, steve (welcome back), the aforementioned Mr. Shabazz, and... um... I guess that's it!
  9:46pm 12539:

...and us quiet lurkers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm efd:

exactly, 12539! Lurkers always welcome!
  9:47pm Droll:

12539, Shhhhh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm efd:

who said that?
  9:53pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Dramarama?! And a happy birthday to Dramarama's Chris Carter
  9:54pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I believe it was actually Monday
  9:55pm Michael from the Left Coast:

but close enough
  9:56pm steve:

1-800-band, truly great name
  10:05pm Destroit:

hi there everybody. I'm aggressively lurking...and that's not easy.
  10:08pm Droll:

. o O ( Why so many mistakes tonight? )
Gentlemen, Rule Number of Lurk Club: ...
  10:12pm Barkevious Shabazz:

  10:12pm jmd:

Monochrome Set! Thanks.
  10:13pm john:

Hey Evan! Whatever I'm doing that's causing me to lurk deeply, and I'm not even live-blogging the convention tonight (yet), the Monochrome Set will always bring me to the surface.
  10:13pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Been forever since I heard the Monochrome Set. Hey EFD, did you know Secret Affair are doing gigs in England?
  10:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In honor of the first NFL football game of the year, the colors tonight remind me of the Miami Dolphin's colors.
  10:14pm ...:

good stuff
  10:14pm john:

Wow, Secret Affair, really? Glad I showed up now to see that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm efd:

whoa, Monochrome Set brings the comment board to life! Hi john and jmd!

Michael, I did not know that! Is it the same line-up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm efd:

ha, duly noted KenFHP! Others have likened them to Howard Johnson... I was just going for summery when I made the switch in June.
  10:22pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I don't know if it's the same lineup for Secret Affair, I have to imagine there are at least some replacements. I just saw it advertised in Mojo
  10:22pm Destroit:

Bill Knapp colors?
  10:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

RIP Joe South, age 72.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm efd:

yeah, that is sad news. I will let DJs more qualified than me do a proper tribute to Mr. South.
  10:31pm Barkevious Shabazz:

No Douche Master?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm efd:

Just me!
  10:39pm eddy:

Exploding White Mice! Classic tune. I used to play this song on my own show, in Melbourne, more than 25 years ago. Got any Eastern Dark, Evan?
  10:44pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I was thinking Chrysalis before you said it. Is this what Sting had in mind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm efd:

ha! Maybe I wasn't so far off in making that connection, then.

Hey eddy, glad you enjoyed the Exploding White Mice cut! If I have a chance I'll see if there's some Eastern Dark in the FMU library, but no promises!
  10:59pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & friends! My beloved computer appears to be dying, scurrying to make sure all essential data on 2 b/u drives. This show is easing the pain in my heart just a wee bit. Thank you. xo

@eddy - julie is a junkie! johnny & dee dee! And: died pretty! celibate rifles! screaming tribesmen! lime spiders! moffs! etc... :-)
  11:00pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Thought this liminanas was Ricky's Hand fr a minute.
  11:01pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious - Fad Gadget's Ricky's Hand? That is one bizarre (& awesome) thought!
  11:03pm steve:

toto! thank you, i was about to ask
  11:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly Sounds just like it at the start.Which is Gut!
  11:08pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious - I like you.

Also like efd saying "la poisson rouge" ;-)
  11:08pm Holly in NC:

And more Aussie goodness, yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm efd:

Hi Holly! And belated hi to the aggressively lurking Destroit as well!
  11:22pm Holly in NC:

@efd - I think you're psychic - somehow I completely, totally, utterly missed The Sound 1st time around - heard Therese play them a week or 2 ago & have been exploring.

Jacco Gardner is *wonderful*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm efd:

@Holly, agreed re Jacco Gardner! I hope there's a full-length on the way, although apparently he already has a fairly significant body of work.

Similar with me re The Sound - I was barely aware of them at the time, but this reissue is pretty good!
  11:37pm john:

OK, what'd I miss?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm efd:

I think the question is what'd *I* miss?
  11:42pm Bernie Brewer:

Oh yeah!
  11:42pm john:

The best American political speech in at least a quarter century. A six-run homer.
  11:43pm Holly in NC:

Re Nervebreakers - anyone on Twitter absolutely needs to follow T Tex Edwards - he is a 1 man aggregator of interesting music-related info. Also his Pinterest is most excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm efd:

@Holly, what's his Tiwtter handle?

@john, WOW! I know you well enough to know you don't say such things lightly... I might have to actually watch it tomorrow.
  11:48pm SteveL:

John is right. Great speech, by a political master. Glad I watched.

Once again I praise the technology that brought us the archives.
  11:50pm john:

I'm not keen on superlatives, but I mean, gosh. This speech will resonate. You'll enjoy it.
  11:50pm Holly in NC:

@efd - He has several, @ttexmusic is main. Well worth following.
  11:57pm steve:

i was just about to point out the missing single unit synth pop song of the efd show! at the buzzer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm efd:

haha, got it in just under the wire steve! I think last week I missed it altogether, though.

Thanks for listening everyone!
  11:59pm Holly in NC:

Why the US is doomed - just tabbed over to check my Yahoo mail acct - Yahoo headlines mention DNC speeches, but guess what's actually trending? Honey Boo Boo, Snooki baby pics, & someoone's baby bump. Oh, & Minica Lewinsky. Getting razor for my wrists NOW.
  9:59pm Sybil:

Just letting you know I'm lurking even when I never comment. Dang this early morning work schedule!
  12:22am Droll:

I confess I typically miss the first part of the EFD show in recent months and mostly lurk when I do listen, but I did get back to this archive, and if you're gonna start opening with PROGRESSIVE ROCK MUSIC (from the 70's), you are soooooo my favorite DJ and I swear I'll tune in religiously.

Archives are weird, I first fell in love with The New Surfsiders on Therese's show live, but she was last to play them of 4 FMU DJs!
