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.

This is my fringe benefit from there having been day baseball on a Wednesday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm efd:

and my fringe benefit too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Indeed grand to rely on this 'place' smack in the middle of the week.
(Saw 'Addams Family' in Paris: Not sure 'Mercredi' has quite the Goth tone of 'Wednesday'...)
  9:27pm miketp:

Wonder what the situation is up to
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

Kind of you to say that, Evan. It's good to be here.
  9:29pm V Priceless:

'Martian Dance' was a record fair score, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Scraps deSelby:

H'lo e "f" d, h'lo people. goddam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Scraps deSelby:

Also "Hello Hello Hello"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Scraps deSelby:

At least, I think I remember a 45 of mine by New England on Private Stock....
  9:40pm Bubba:

Cool tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm efd:

"Hello Hello Hello" is on the same LP! But it's on Infinity, not Private Stock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm efd:

although I of all people can certainly understand mixing up those labels
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Scraps deSelby:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Uncle Michael:

I just became aware of very bad weather west of me, headed this way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

uh-oh! Stay safe, Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Scraps deSelby:

I very much remember, on Private Stock, Starbuck's "Moonlight Feels Right", which has an awful "ha ha" in it. The definition of "smug", that "ha ha".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Uncle Michael:

I have a basement!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Scraps deSelby:

Or the spelling should probably be "heh heh"....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm efd:

that "heh heh" is one of THEE WORST moments in recorded history. And yes, that is indeed on the Private Stock label.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Scraps deSelby:

The whole vocal delivery of that song, really.
Avatar 10:01pm geezerette:

Uncle Michael, here's a tune to keep your spirits up in that basement. www.youtube.com...

Boy, haven't heard this Thompson Twins single for a long time. Since MTV played etc etc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks gzrt!
Avatar 10:07pm Dano59:

Avatar 10:08pm geezerette:

Evan & buddies,check this out! Can't describe!
:D maybe AFTER the Funk.
Avatar 10:10pm geezerette:

U.M.'my pleasure! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Stevel:

UM: As they say, ITS HEADED RIGHT AT YOU!! Keep your head down! I think my uncle, down in Pittsburg KS is safe for now.
  10:20pm MONEYBAG$:

Hey, does anyone know if the station streams through any other radio apps besides the official one and TuneIn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Scraps deSelby:

At least Maby was still playing on Laughter & Lust. (A very good album.) (Really.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm fleep:

MONEYBAG$ also on vTuner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Stevel:

Looking forward to A Giant Dog live. Where are they from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm efd:

@Stevel they're from Austin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Scraps deSelby:

Okay, Maby is still playing on Joa Jackson's albums right up to 2015's Fast Forward.
  10:29pm MONEYBAG$:

thanks fleep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm efd:

oh cool, thanks for the research Scraps! Shows you how much I've been paying attention to Joe Jackson lately... :(
Avatar 10:31pm Layet Johnson:

Hey Evan, do you have a link for the 1-800-Band show that I can share online?
Avatar 10:35pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Stevel:

Thanks efd. Of course they're from Austin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm efd:

@Layet there isn't really anything to link to at the moment! Probably the best link is to my playlist page: wfmu.org...
That's where the blurb will be posted next week, and where the playlist link will be posted after the show airs.
Avatar 10:50pm geezerette:

thunderboys remind me of ten things at once but sound like themselves anyway. like it!!!
  10:54pm JakeGould:

@MONEYBAG$: Well, there might be other services that “stream” WFMU but all they do is act as a directory for audio streams. Meaning, you might find another app to use but they would still connect to—and use—the same stream URLs the app and the website do.

You measly egg suckers! Shut the front door! Forget about you!

Love the O'Neill brothers

Yay Pollard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm chris_in_space:

@efd, I'm loving the latest GbV record. Just sayin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Uncle Michael:

Looks like heavy rain and maybe a a little hail is about to make an appearance here. The tornadoes are staying to the south of me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm efd:

that sounds relatively tolerable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, not death from above or anything...
  11:50pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: Stop sinning. Solved!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Uncle Michael:

At this point, unless I'm being smited for sloth or gluttony, there's not much to worry about.
  11:55pm JakeGould:

I think I have sloth issues but my gluttony has been solved by a bout of illness a month or so back. Smaller portions and healthier choices!™ (one of those guys I am now).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Uncle Michael:

king gizzard & the lizard wizard didn't call their album "blizzard?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks the pogrom, Evan.
