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.

Favoriting August 13, 2014: The 6th annual Evan "Funk" Davies Disco and/or Dance Party!

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

Summertime always reminds me of listening to Ken "Spider" Webb and Ricky Ricardo and, of course the Chief Rocker Frankie Crocker on WBLS. So when summer rolls around I start itching to play my favorite records from that era (give or take a few years) -- favorites I loved back then, and new favorites that I never heard back in the day.
In that spirit, I present the 6th nearly annual Evan "Funk" Davies Disco and/or Dance Party! I'll be spinning some classic jams from the mid-'70s and early '80s, along with some of the lesser-known nuggets. It's the kind of show that makes you say "I haven't heard this in 35 years" and "why haven't I heard this before?!" I can assure you that the beat will be turned around, your whistle will be blown, and your body will be shaken down to the ground so push the furniture against the wall and enjoy!

=======================================
Disco/dance disclaimer! I'm keeping the lines blurry and using "disco" and "dance" as catch-all terms for my own take on fun dance music from the mid-70s to the early '80s, expanding the boundaries (and sound) of the traditional disco era. No griping, please!

Just be good to me! Like The Evan "Funk" Davies Show on Facebook, and follow me on Twitter!

For anyone interested .. I'm looking at Sennheiser HD 598, Sennheiser HD600, Audio Technica ATH-M50X, Audio Technica ATH AD-900X, Beyerdynamic DT-880, Focal Spirit Professionals, AKG K702 (or K701), also the Phillips Fidelio X1 (more for looks than reviews on sound quality)... God.. If I were not me and I were to hear me talk... I would make fun of me for being such a shmuck.. as if it actually mattered.. like I would ever even notice.. as if this werent just me wanting to feel cool for getting the perfect pair .. ugh..

next record is a perfect example of a 12" I bought just because it was on TK and turned out to be a monster of a song.

I'm sure no-one gives a shit.. but I really want killer headphones because of my folks. My dad invested (I'm guessing 2 grand in the 80s) on STAX headphones with the special electromagnetic headphone boxes..and He would always flip shit when I tried to use them without asking permission as a little kid.. My mom would put on records and hand me the headphones and I have real good memories of being totally blown away by those headphones.... but alas... I cannot afford the now $3-5 grand worth headphones.. I just want to get something that'll make me feel the 'WOW' I remember putting those stax on as a kid..

Nice to see you, Clay! Glad you're enjoying the show. It was exactly Lou Gramm who popped into my head as I was trying to remember whether Dorothy Moore's hit was "Midnight Blue" or "Misty Blue."

I've played that Wardell Piper before, Clay! Didn't bring it tonight, though (I know you weren't making a request). "Born To Be Alive" is here, could be coming up but it's a race against the clock!

did anyone else catch Joel St Germain's debut fill in last Friday evening? i thought i was a big fan of Italo Disco, and yet he played 3 solid hours of primo 80s Italian dance and related musics and i only recognized two cuts in 3 hours! pretty amazing stuff, highly recommended.
