Favoriting November 7, 2012: Singles Going Seventies vol. II!

Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop-up player!

This special show was originally going to be part of WFMU's 31 Days Of October silent fundraiser, and then Hurricane Sandy and its post-tropical friends hit Jersey City and much of the surrounding area, knocking us off the air and making it impossible to broadcast from our studios. After picking up the pieces we found ourselves in a $250k financial hole due to costs and lost revenue from the cancellation of our record fair, equipment damage, and the fact that the storm hit during the last week of that silent fundraiser.
So, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Hell And High Water emergency fundraiser! We're breaking our silence and asking on the air (in addition to online) for your help as we try to recover from the storm.

Holly in NC:

Stones Emotional Rescue? And hey is anyone else hearing rip/homage to Doobies' Black Water in last song before efd's mike break?

@rickwaukee, maybe I should call this show "'members only."
  11:10pm
steve:

cool synth solo!
  11:11pm
G:

The Chicory tune was the first UK chart no. one song to use a synthesizer prominently, so quoth wiki.
  11:11pm
Danne D:

Love this song from one of your premium CDs Evan :)

Of course those new around here should know that one can obtain EFD premium CDs by pledging to WFMU - now more than ever the station needs your help. It's easy and it keeps great music coming your way :)

Weems:

@john: Conjures the notion. What is the worst hot song of the 70's?
Gotta Go with Seasons in the Sun by a nose over Angie by the Stones.
  11:17pm
Weems:

Hit song that is
  11:19pm
john:

@Weems, that would have to be the worst song of all time, "Lights" by (pardon my French) Journey.
  11:20pm
Holly in NC:

Built this City by a mile ...
  11:21pm
Glenn L:

5705! Was hoping you'd play this one!
  11:21pm

Holly I agree, and yet I know people who LOVE that song
  11:28pm
sweet cheri:

hiya julie,
  11:29pm
Weems:

We Built This City is. 80s. What is worst of the 70's. funk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm
efd:

Weems, I'd have to put "Blind Man In The Bleachers" way up there.
  11:31pm
john:

I'm sticking with Lights, but that's tough competition!
  11:35pm
Barkevious Munchie:

Stillwater. Sweet christ.
  11:35pm
Rickwaukee:

Weems don't like Stones' Angie - would you prefer Helen Reddy's Angie Baby????
  11:36pm
Holly in NC:

Any number of Billy Joel options...
  11:36pm
mb:

hm, never realized it before, but I wonder if Zappa was ripping on Mink with Jones Crusher, the similarity could be coincidental or parodiotic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm
efd:

Just the reaction I was looking for, Barkevious.
  11:43pm
Weems:

Def prefer Angie Baby over Stones Angie. Helen Reddy was hot! I Am Woman is a kick ass song. No joke! Love it!
  11:43pm
G:

B side of Wings ""Mull of Kintyre", which is really well known in UK, not so well known here

  11:48pm
Julie:

isn't this with Elton?
  11:48pm
Julie:

Or am I thinking of some other Elton duet
  11:48pm
G:

I get the impression Mull/Girls School was really a double A side, and in the US the rocker Girls School got play that Mull (the big hit in the UK) would never have gotten here...
