Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Folks, as you know a couple of weeks ago Hurricane Sandy and her 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 our October silent fundraiser.
Because of all this we are now in the middle of our 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.

P L E A S E   P L E D G E   N O W !

Artist Track Album Label Year Comments New Approx. start time
the profits  what i want   Options 7"  radar  1978  This record is so obscure I couldn't even track down any info about the band, let alone a photo. I have a suspicion that The Profits are related to the San Francisco band The Durocs -- if not the Durocs themselves performing under another name. The investigation continues.
UPDATE: The investigation has concluded! It turns out that this is the very first record produced by Scott Matthews and Ron Nagle, and it marks the debut of slide guitarist and singer Roy Rogers. And now you know the REST of the story.

What an awful lot of lurkers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm efd:

  9:11pm Pine:

I lurk no more!
  9:11pm SteveL:

Its quiet...Too quiet.
  9:11pm Holly in NC:

Lurk ! Lurk! Have to lurk 'til I get home, telling bedtime stories to sick insomniac child who should have been asleep by now.
  9:13pm Peter Sellers:

I like to lurk.
  9:14pm Vis A Vis:

Wally! Wally!
  9:14pm Holly in NC:

I just typed that while making special illicit hot cocoa with ovaltine AND marshmallows even though will have to repeat the battle of brushing teeth.
  9:15pm Pine:

Why do they call it ovaltine if the jar is round? :D
  9:16pm Rockford:

Shoes! Can Off Broadway and Pezband be far behind?
  9:17pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The schmaltz factor was exponential, but that fotomaker was great.
  9:19pm Dick Weber IV:

This color-motif reminds me of AMF. Makes me want to bowl!

Hi Mr. EFD. Quite hypnotizing, this sequence!
  9:25pm SteveL:

WFMU folks have been doing the impossible since Sandy hit. Inspirational, to say the least.

Thierry: I too feel the beat.

yay house! one of us! one of us!
  9:34pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Not to be confused with Todd Teery's "Can you feel it?"
  9:49pm john:

Whoa. Welcome to Hollies Appreciation Night. And I mean that in the best way.
  9:54pm Pine:

Haven't listened to the show since it was 4hrs and I lived in another land! I got a new Wednesday night ritual in a new land :)
  10:03pm SteveL:

Pine: Where were/are you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm efd:

Hi Pine, welcome back! Although I have to pedantically point out that my show wasn't ever 4 hours long (thank goodness!).
  10:11pm Pine:

Ha ha yeah 4hr sets are rough! I used to stay up and listen to the old 4hr night people, somethimes I'd leave the station running for a while and catch your show ;)
  10:12pm Pine:

@SteveL Ireland to Glasgow
  10:18pm Ignore Function:

Sounds great! I'm about to head out to see Menahan St. Band so this set is hitting the spot.
  10:19pm SteveL:

@Pine: Then you're up too late again, eh? past 2 or 3?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm efd:

excellent, Ignore Function! Have a great time!
  10:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

This lou cover is aces.
  10:23pm Ignore Function:

Is dm bob still making records?
  10:27pm SteveL:

Ruckus Roboticus far to cheerful for Funky Winkerbean.
  10:30pm Pine:

@SteveL yes spot on. Started a blog today, some background on wtf I'm doing up late and why I can't pledge for a while http://jjmcyk.tumblr.com/
  10:36pm SteveL:

@Pine: Rice is good food. A little bit of anything tastes good on it. Salt, vinegar, you name it. Good choice!
  10:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Dextromethorphan. I vote for d.m. bob.
  10:37pm Holly in NC:

@Pine, when you decide to cash your coin at the grocery, sardines & eggs are by far best nutritional bang for the buck. If you eat sardines & eggs.

Hi efd! Love Boomgates.
  10:39pm Pine:

@SteveL yeah its great! In sanskrit it means "The sustainer of Humanity"
@Holly I eat anything right now!
Also been gifted a big pouch of tobacco, probably my last, good riddance to it too!
  10:43pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Eggs are the sustainers of bull terriers everywhere. Ask one.
  10:44pm Holly in NC:

If I hadn't quit smoking, i probably - definitely - would've lost my house by now ;-) Dear lord did I waste a shitton of money on smokes
  10:44pm steve:

i knew this was gap dream! ive been paying attention
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm efd:

Hi Holly! Personally I don't care for sardines OR eggs.

Barkevious, I guess that explains the shape of their heads?
  10:44pm SteveL:

@Pine: In Burma, the most common greeting is 'come eat rice with us' (or something along those lines.) They mean it too.

Eggs seem like a bad choice for most dogs, especially if you're sharing close quarters.
  10:45pm SteveL:

Hey! A pledge!
  10:48pm Joe B:

This is the best show on WFMU :)
  10:49pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)
greetings from the treadmill (I am fat)
  10:50pm Holly in NC:

My mum frequently made eggs for breakfast for both our dog Liebchen & me - I got scrambled with margarine, Liebchen got *perfectly* soft boiled with real butter. And real non-instant oatmeal. Again with real butter. No one in the human family was allowed butter except for Thanksgiving & Xmas (at the time, butter far more expensive than marg). No matter, Liebchen was worth it ;-)
  10:51pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@efd Sharp eye. @Stevel a great choice as long as i leave for work!
  10:52pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Liebchen was worth it !
  10:53pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne! I'm fat too! And I'm not on a treadmill!
  10:54pm SteveL:

Barkevious: Good point.

Holly/Danne: I'm big boned, primarily in the stomach area.

Joe B: You sure about that?
  10:58pm Julie:

We're all on a treadmill in life, some of us just prefer to think of it as a hamster wheel
  10:58pm Pine:

Dark hamster wheel of the soul
  10:59pm Holly in NC:

Did anyone else use to think that saltines sandwiched with butter/marg so that the butter/marg squirted out the saltine holes was a great after school snack?

And did anyone other than my mum butter/marg all sandwiches, including peanut butter?
  11:00pm Holly in NC:

@Pine - I just choked on my water, thank you very much ;-)

Hi Julie!
  11:01pm SteveL:

Holly: Yes, re. saltines and excessive marg use. What a buried memory you have uncovered.
  11:03pm Pine:

Spreadable things combined with butter/marg are so gross yet everyone seems to do it!
  11:03pm G:

I weighed 220 in 1998, after 2002 I weighed 180, and now I'm 165. No calorie counting. There is hope.
  11:07pm Thierry:

Nice and swampy, The Liminanas are an efd live show discovery!
  11:09pm dan in falls church VA:

hola efd
  11:09pm Holly in NC:

@G - I know there's hope - I just need to get back serious on low carb. Carbs are NOT my friend. I actually gained weight on purpose to escape the physical aspect of an abusive situation, and it took a lot more weight than I thought it would to be successful!
  11:11pm steve:

efd - is that eye remix as in eye of the boredoms??
  11:12pm Pine:

@Holly If you can quit smoking you can do anything!
  11:12pm G:

@HNC: Yes, I got a diet-controllable diabetes diagnosis in the early 00s. Just knowing what food is carbs and what isn't, and having a general idea of how much you are taking in, in what size doses, during the day, tends to go far more toward weight control than calorie counting....
  11:13pm G:

Ticket Salad Sandwiches are very carby :-) But lots of fiber too...
  11:15pm steve:

gah, mmm all this talk of butter sandwiches and ticket salad sandwiches is making me hungry
  11:16pm G:

pre midnight snack
  11:18pm Julie:

the tickets in the sandwiches get stuck in my teeth, I hate that
  11:19pm G:

some tickets are printed with soy-based ink. protein!!!
  11:22pm dan in falls church VA:

Beautiful Sic Alps track. (Hope the Alps never get well. What disease do those poor mountains have anyway?)
  11:24pm dan in falls church VA:

my mom and I like our peanut butter sandwiches with butter on one piece of bread and peanut butter on the other. am i spozed to be ashamed of that or something?

except these days we use "smart balance buttery spread" instead of butter.
  11:25pm Holly in NC:

@G - calorie counting is a total waste for me - like you, all about carb control. We seem to have similar metabolisms. Other folks' mileage may vary. I hate when people insist that their way of eating is the one way (esp as mine is clearly the one and only way ;-))
  11:26pm Thierry:

Speaking of efd live sets, any news from the Notekillers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm efd:

hey Dan, thanks for checking in! Steve, I believe you're correct the remix is by the Boredoms' Eye.
  11:27pm Holly in NC:

@Dan in FC -

a) NO! No shame at all!
b) that spread will kill you though! Butter is far healthier, if you can get butter from grass-fed cows.
c) Off soap box, sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm efd:

Thierry, haven't heard anything from them lately; I'll see if I can get an update.
  11:29pm Holly in NC:

I love that Cale is still all about mind f*ckery
  11:31pm G:

A lot of the trendy dietary info, and even federal govt info, is pro-high-carb, and has been since the 70s...

if you know lower-carb tends to work for you, just keep some general track of carbs. 50-60 grams is a meal, 20-30 is a snack. have three meals a day, and 2-3 snacks. try not to have more than 60 or so grams of carb in a sitting.

you don't have to count exact #s of carb grams. after a few weeks, you know about how many carbs are in the stuff you usually eat, and can keep good enough track in a fuzzy way in your head...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm efd:

Many thanks to everyone who's pledged so far - it is GREATLY appreciated! I know that not everyone who wants to pledge is able to right now, and I'm also well aware that there are a LOT of people and organizations in need and looking for help, but if you haven't yet made a pledge to WFMU and you're able to throw a few bucks our way we would greatly appreciate it. You can get a t-shirt, premium CD, or the new WFMU War On Christmas CD with your pledge at the appropriate level, and if you pledge $120 or more then you can pay it monthly so you're not laying out a lot of cash right now. Thanks for your support!
  11:32pm dan in falls church VA:

@Holly, what's wrong with Smart Balance??? (if you don't mind stepping back on the soapbox for just a moment please!)
  11:33pm dan in falls church VA:

wow, that there new cale sounds totally classic.
  11:36pm Joe B:

John Paul Keith! wish I could have heard it!
  11:37pm Thierry:

Thx, Notekillers are the epitome of class.
Great Cale & spanish moss track, fits with those roaming, advancing beats which tonight are the show's mark.
  11:39pm dan in falls church VA:

  11:40pm dan in falls church VA:

Holly, holly, plz tell me what's wrong with Smart Balance? I'm now worried! [*ack*gack*cough*wheeze*croak*gurgle*cough*gack]
  11:42pm Pine:

@Dan Just a guess but probably crazy transfats or general artery glue
  11:42pm Danne D:

I am screwed :( I like carbs too much and use smart balance :(

@efd sometimes only the left channel speakers work in my car so I would not havr noticed :)

So even if I comment like only once I can totally sidetrack the comments board? Crazy.
  11:45pm Danne D:

@dan in fc - glad I am not the only one who fumble fingers comments using my phone :) snnounvrf? :)
  11:45pm G:

@Danne: I've always loved bread and the many similar/related foods (pizza, etc etc). I still eat them in moderate amounts. I actually appreciate them more in moderate doses than I used to when eating a whole pizza in fifteen minutes flat. (I came from a family of six kids. We learned to eat fast if we didn't want to get skunked on seconds.)
  11:46pm Danne D:

Lol G. I am the youngest of 5 :)
  11:47pm Pine:

Supercharger song was great, very toejam and earl, the funkiest 16bit game soundtrack ever! Worth checking out for the crazy doubled up basslines.
  11:47pm Holly in NC:

Oh dear Dan & Danne , I don't want to hijack efd's board! Google margarine trans fats, PUFA, SAD foods ... and then also google butter grass fed CLA.
In brief, SERIOUSLY ditch the SB and buy either Kerrygold butter, Organic Valley green label pastured butter, or best of all any local butter from happy cows. Tastes better & actually good for you! Really.
  11:48pm Danne D:

Wait they feed CIA agents with grass and turn them into Smart Balance?!?
  11:49pm G:

Apparently it makes em horndogs, too :-)
  11:51pm Holly in NC:

I'm youngest of 3, but sibs 20 yrs older so really I was just fighting my dad for what we inelegantly called the roast beef "blood". As in who got to raise the carving board to our victorious lips.
And my mum for the chicken 'oysters'
  11:51pm dan in falls church VA:

@Danne D, I am fumble finger commenting on my desktop computer with an extra large split keyboard :(
  11:52pm dan in falls church VA:

@Danne D I am the youngest of 5 also
  11:52pm Danne D:

Lol G :)
Btw have a happy thanksgiving all :) I am heading south forthe holiday :)
If you are thankful for WFMU and haven't already done so please pledge - it'll do your heart good :)
  11:53pm dan in falls church VA:

@Danne, snnounvrf was supposed to be "announced"!!!
  11:53pm Holly in NC:

Bizarre correlation between efd fandom & youngest in fam status?
  11:54pm Danne D:

S'ok dan :) you are well named :)
i'll wave from the highway as i pass thru va
  11:54pm Pine:

Youngest of six here too, I guess we all benefitted from cool older sibling brainwashing ;D
Great show tonight!
  11:54pm G:

I'm the oldest of 6 :-( lol
  11:54pm dan in falls church VA:

Especially since I'm the oldest of three!
  11:55pm dan in falls church VA:

@Pine, there was nothing cool about *any* of my older siblings! I discovered most everything cool on my own.
  11:56pm Danne D:

I know dan :) the context was clear :) and the info informative :)

Thanks for a great show efd :) enjoy the holiday :)
  11:56pm dan in falls church VA:

  11:57pm Danne D:

We'll have to share fmu discovery stories when we are all back :)
  11:57pm Pine:

Too bad Danne! I had extensive punk rock brainwashing then turned to the funk to overcome it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm efd:

Thanks for listening everyone, and many thanks to everyone who was able to make a pledge. Have a great Thanksgiving - I'll see you in two weeks!
  11:58pm Holly in NC:

@Pine - my sisters' record collection = Anne Murray, the Carpenters, Gordon Lightfoot, & Creedence Gold. Somehow they managed to be teenagers in the 60s with out a single DAMN clue. (Not dissing Creedence)
  11:58pm dan in falls church VA:

heck, my older siblings grew up in the 60s & early 70s & never even did much in the way of drugs, whatta pack of losers, a few of them smoked weed here and there, big deal. I had to do enough acid & meth &shit to make up for all of them. The onerous responsibilities laid on the youngest.
  11:59pm Danne D:

I was too far younger - found the prog rock all by myself :) night all :)
  12:00am dan in falls church VA:

@Holly, exactly.
  12:00am Pine:

My first inherited tape was Sepultura Beneath the Remains :D
Then I found the P funk!
Happy thanksgiving over there all
