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.

Hey! Do you take requests? I'd like to hear some Zerodent, please.

Whatever you do tonight EFD, please don’t play anything that comes close to a patter song.

Heya Evan! I finally scored a copy of Chris O'Leary's 'Rebel Rebel' book - whoa! Thanks for hipping me to same!

I remember scooping out the beta video movie for “Blue Jean” at Titus Oaks Records on Avenue U back in the 1980s.

good evening all!!!! hi Evan ~ great start tonight. I had no idea that it has been 25 since we lost such an outrageous artist. His shows were a natural high.....I remember them well .....from the Academy of Music in NY.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Jerry Shirley also on Syd Barrett solo stuff (btw).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:34pm Stevel:

Amazing that those interviews were five years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

EFD_Did you ever find the old CDR of the original bed music? I miss it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:41pm Stevel:

Bark: I too recognize the difference. Not positive I have a preference, but the earlier bed masked American Woman a bit more, somehow, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:42pm efd:

@Barkevious, I haven't found it, but then again I haven't been looking. I think I still have the original .wav file though, maybe I'll re-burn it and alternate between the two.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:42pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I would support that1

Excited to be seeing Lloyd Cole begrudgingly play "the hits" Friday night in Philly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:48pm JakeGould:

“I want to talk abut TV screens… In my 1980s band…”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:49pm Stevel:

We could run book on which bed efd would play on a given night. Just saying.

Saw Lloyd Cole last year. Cool show. I directly pimped efd, and Lloyd recalled enjoying being on the show. Funny guy, dry, dry humor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:49pm efd:

stay cool out there in Tacoma!

Barkevious, that should be a great show! Tell him Evan "Funk" Davies sent you! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:49pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Will do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:50pm Stevel:

That's some crazy drum/bass interplay in T.V. Me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:50pm efd:

I just want someone to go up to a band/artist who was on my show and say "hey, Evan 'Funk' Davies sent me!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:51pm JakeGould:

@efd: Now that would be something!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:51pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I'll see what I can do. Pretty small venue. Will prob go to jail.
  Wed. 4/20/16 9:51pm Rev.:

Very cool Distributors track EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:51pm jmd:

Never heard The Distributors before. Great track, thanks for playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:51pm Stevel:

Actually, efd, that's pretty close to what I said.

Bark: Put bail money aside now. Trust me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:53pm JakeGould:

That’s a 1" button, “EFD Sent Me!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:54pm Stevel:

I believe I told him I heard him perform and spin on your show and was convinced I needed to see him.

I also mentioned that you were the King of something or other. Can't quite recall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:54pm efd:

A+ Stevel, well done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:55pm Stevel:

Jake: Voting Yes for button.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:56pm efd:

I kind of love the button idea. Will investigate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 9:56pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Fondelier?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:57pm Stevel:

I'd support the button, like, with money. Just saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 9:58pm Stevel:

Also, Slowcoach is "Nightflight"-weird quality stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:06pm efd:

@BLCKDGRD, here's your request. ;)

Hey ledzeppelins***s: here in Snohomish County, I didn't go out in the sun. Good thing, I start to shrivel in the eighties.

Nice to see Washington state representing on the playlist tonight!

Saloot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

Apostrophication.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:28pm Scraps:

As a ex-copyeditor, I approve no-apostrophes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 10:29pm Stevel:

Is that anti-apostrophication?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:31pm Scraps:

Much misused, and 99% doesn't do any good use.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:36pm Scraps:

(I still habitually use them, though. Even when I have to stretch to use them with this ipad "keyboard".)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:40pm Scraps:

Apostrophe delanda est!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:41pm Scraps:

er, delenda, I mean. sigh

Hi Danne! Thanks for checking in.

Evan--Primavera effort will not be the same without you and Sherri. You will both be deeply missed on the team.

Just tuned in! Hi EFD and Funkateers.

Aw, thanks Scott. We're both gonna miss hanging out with you all too - it's always been a blast!

hey Kat!
  Wed. 4/20/16 10:54pm Carmichael:

Yo Evan and rockers. Why does the app offer a video stream of the stalling tape?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 10:55pm efd:

no idea, Carmichael! Maybe it's a remnant from the video of Dalek performing on Pseu Braun's show earlier tonight.
  Wed. 4/20/16 10:56pm Carmichael:

Could be, could be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:04pm Scraps:

Just take a sniff of a cat's breath: I don't want that biting me

evan Great broadcast
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 11:05pm Bootsie:

That Cait Brennan track made me think of Sparks.
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:06pm Carmichael:

New Motown!
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:07pm Carmichael:

I love Todd R's song You Cried Wolf. Would go nicely around here. Note to self ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:07pm efd:

I agree, Bootsie. That whole album is chock full of '70s touchstones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:09pm efd:

@Bklyn kid, thank you!
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:20pm Carmichael:

Wtf is this? I believe there is a Eurythmics connection somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:23pm brendanswfmuaccount:

Man, bummed I missed the live set. This song rules. I'll have to check out the archives. Great stuff tonight, efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/20/16 11:24pm Michael 98145:

Awright!!
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:25pm KP:

Abused apostrophes? Ex-copy editors? What did I miss?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:26pm efd:

@Carmichael, you're right about that Eurythmics connection! I didn't realize -- Vic Martin was in both Eurythmics and Rexy.
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:27pm Carmichael:

And I recognize this voice. Alex Chilton or Chris Bell?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:33pm Ike:

@KP, whatever it was, I missed it too. Maybe someone discussed eliminating all apostrophes from English because they're so misused?
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:37pm KP:

Ike, we should first eliminate the misusers.
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:37pm KP:

And thanks.
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:42pm JakeGould:

First they came for the apostrophes and I said nothing...
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:44pm KP:

Nothin'
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:45pm Carmichael:

Then, it was the semi-colons ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:46pm Scraps:

The dB's!
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 11:49pm geezerette:

Damn the ampersands,full speed ahead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:49pm Scraps:

That one without Stamey was still good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:50pm efd:

It was! But I'm also happy they all got back together eventually.
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:51pm JakeGould:

Ampersands, apostrophes and semi-colons bring so much joy to the world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:54pm mark r:

OMG I haven't heard this Lonnie Liston Smith cut since the 70s!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:54pm Scraps:

I really liked the Holsapple / Stamey one before they resurrected the the dB's name. Very mellow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 11:56pm Scraps:

Mavericks, that was it.
