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

"Hello New York" is the first track of the night that has looking for more on the band. I suspect it won't be the last.

My son loves Adam Warrock. I'll see if he wants to direct some of his hard-earned gardening wages his way.

That would be very cool, brian!
Avatar 9:49pm Holly in NC:

Comment board so quiet tonight. World cup? Certainly not quality of efd's show, esp. given last segue ;-) Very proud to share birthday w Ms. Lee. Kick-ass.
Avatar 9:56pm Holly in NC:

Also Big Mama Thornton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

Thanks Holly! Hard to tell what drives comment-board activity from one week to the next... I've learned not to use it as a barometer of listener enjoyment! :)

Oh yeah man
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm efd:

there we go!
Avatar 10:02pm Holly in NC:

@efd - I think you mean NOT to use it.. at any rate I won't be commenting while I make dinner, but please assume I'm enjoying. I am an electric friend for sure xo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm efd:

oh yeah. Fixed! Thanks Holly!

efd, Some of my best comments board contributions are me lurking. But man, if you blow "Ticket" again, you're gonna hear about it.
  10:14pm P-90:

@ efd and Holly: OK, that makes sense now (9:57), I was wondering if that was exactly what you meant...
Great playlist as always, listener enjoyment at 11 out of ten.

cool, thanks Loretta! And hi Danne!
  Swag For Life Member 10:30pm 12539:

Do you really think I'm going to come out of lurking just to let you know I'm enjoying the show? You'll have to have a special guest on for that to happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm efd:

I would never expect you do to that, 12539! I can't believe you'd even consider it.
  10:35pm john:

Hey Evan! In and out tonight…missed Gary Numan, catching Sputnik. Batting .500!

not bad, john, not bad. Thanks for saying hi!

I have been looking for that particular Sputnik song for ages. Any clues?

Also, yay for Woods.

Like m.o.b. They obviously were schooled to an extent by Gavin Friday. And now my beloved eastlink, super!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Stevel:

Man, 11 already. You'd think I'd napped through the first three sets (you'd be right!)

Got to see The Blind Shake for the first time last Friday, in Madison, WI, along with The Hussy. Awesome. All business and nice as anyone I've met. Live music rules.
  Swag For Life Member 11:11pm 12539:

"City Circle" according to this review and a few online stores:
  11:13pm herb.nyc:

John Doe! Oh, he has free tue 6.24 outdr nyc show, nr city wino-ry.
  11:15pm herb.nyc:

My s.f. Friend had 2 cats, Telstar and Sputnik. Awww.
Avatar 11:16pm Holly in NC:

It must be hard for John D. to witness Exene's MS-related mental decline.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm efd:

12539, I saw a couple of references to "City Circle," but you'll have to take my word for it that the word I'm looking at seems to have a few extra letters. Still, I guess "City Circle" it is.

herb, thanks for the John Doe info (and cat info)!

Stevel, you're going to be up all night now after that nap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm efd:

Hadn't heard that Exene has MS... that's a tough situation indeed.
Avatar 11:25pm Marcel M:

I was listening to EFD, left to go see Chris Forsyth play, and now I'm back, and EFD is still on!
Avatar 11:26pm Marcel M:

maybe it seems wilder to me right now than it actually is..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm efd:

I'm impressed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm efd:

You must have timed everything perfectly!

Hehe. It blew my concept of time.

Avatar 11:31pm Holly in NC:

@efd - yes. Exene & Victoria Jackson appear to have medical conditions that create &/or exacerbate their looniness. Mo Tucker... just makes me weep.
  11:33pm herb.nyc:

Uh, google "exene cervenka politics"

Low Life so good. Post-goth?

Interesting & sad series of blog posts from Kevin Seconds re touring w. Exene as MS started to effect her brain starts here

  11:56pm P-90:

@Holly: Thanks for the link, I had not heard that she's sick. Hm.
  Swag For Life Member 11:56pm 12539:

Thanks, Mr Funk. Not a bad show for just a guy playing a bunch of records.
  12:00am P-90:

Thanks efd, great playlist (thanks for Sputnik!) and solid falsetto on "ticket".
Avatar 12:01am Holly in NC:

Thank you, efd. And forgot to lament passing of Tony Gwynn.
Avatar 1:56am Droll:

You miscued the ticket music, but managed to save it in the end!

As usual, I was pulled away and missed the last 2 sets and "everyone's favorite segment", but I try to come back for it. And the CanCon. And bands that draw too much from AC/DC. Speaking of which, your Oz quotient is very high. All good stuff.

I'm soooooo looking forward to the upcoming drum special! Gonna be great fun -- so many drummers to hear from! Like David Garabaldi! Check out this guy covering Professor Garabaldi:
The guy nails it from the top, but the super-ridiculous stuff starts around 2:30. Nonstop left foot, single-stick rolls, pure feel... this guy's ridiculous.
