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

What up!. Looking forward to this one all week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm efd:

hey there SB! Glad you made it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Switchblade Batman:

Wouldn't miss one @EFD.
Avatar 9:07pm JakeGould:

Oh hello Billy Idol!
  9:08pm Stevel:

Hey there! Day off, tomorrow. Life will do for now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Uncle Michael:

I'm betting EFD owns the Billy Idol "Mony, Mony" 12".
  9:09pm Stevel:

It might be strange if he didn't.

Yo, UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Switchblade Batman:

I think I heard Dancing with myself 100s of times since elementary school. I'm still not sick of it.
  9:09pm andrewb:

the drummer might be a jersey boy
Avatar 9:10pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: This is the original Generation X version that has some extra stuff mixed in. The Billy Idol version is a bit stripped down track-wise compared to this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Uncle Michael:

I know.
Avatar 9:11pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: Oh. I misread. Sorry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Uncle Michael:

It's a beautiful night for a live set -- let's play THREE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Uncle Michael:

@fleep: Ernie would agree.
Avatar 9:25pm Hoboken Jack:

I smell blood -- SURFER BLOOD!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Now with 60% more live bands!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Cooh John:

Hello to all you funky listeners. This will be a show for the ages.
  9:30pm Stevel:

Faye is definitely one of your cousin shows. Love the way WFMU DJs cover so much ground with very pleasant overlaps. The Venn diagram would get pretty odd.
  9:31pm DJ E:

hey efd. Did they get those new WFMU shirts?
  9:34pm DJ E:

I told the guys (and gal) in Surfer Blood I was looking forward to this. nice guys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm efd:

super nice guys! And yes, I was able to update their WFMU shirt collections.
  9:36pm Stevel:

What great production! Mike Sin sets a high standard!
  9:37pm Mike tp:

Tasty song which do cook. Frozen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm efd:

I was impressed by the harmony vocals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm YupiHaveOne:

Gawd I am old i use 2 listening to EFD on the NAS
Avatar 9:41pm Hoboken Jack:

Digging this set. They've grown since the first album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm efd:

wow Yupi that must make me old too! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm YupiHaveOne:

We're both older n wiser
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm YupiHaveOne:

This band is tight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm efd:

yeah, they know what they're doing for sure.
  9:51pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Thanks, Surfer Blood. Thanks, Evan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Switchblade Batman:

Great set guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm mr_mikeK:

Best thing on the airwaves. Thanks for great set. Saw them with Foals. Just have to imagine them live now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

i don't know why I said "if not all of them," totally spazzed out there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Uncle Michael:

They can do their own version of side two of Abbey Road with all those fragments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm YupiHaveOne:

Don't the Jesus n Mary chain have a wire cover out now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm efd:

I know they have a new album out, not sure about the wire cover though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm YupiHaveOne:

Never mind it was My Bloody Valentine'
  10:09pm Stevel:

I did NOT see Elton John coming! Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm mr_mikeK:

Nice to hear other tracks than #1 from Caribou
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm efd:

no shortage of good songs on that album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm mr_mikeK:

Bring the Maltz. Whoa, thought that was gen x cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm mr_mikeK:

WFMU studios rockin today
  10:26pm Stevel:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Switchblade Batman:

I love Surfer Blood, but I was really looking forward to Terry Malts. I've been listening to lost at the party off and on this past week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm efd:

I'm still kicking myself for not finding a way to shoehorn Lost At The Party into my 2016 Top 10 list. It's really great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Switchblade Batman:

Totally is @EFD. I think your show was the one that turned me onto it. So thanks for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm efd:

that's why I'm here!
  10:39pm rbrt:

is this live right now or recorded live?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm efd:

it was recorded live. Terry Malts are in Cleveland as we speak.
  10:42pm rbrt:

gotcha. thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm efd:

I may need to rethink the way I say the name of this band... I always put the emphasis on "Malts," but they seem to stress "Terry" more.
  10:53pm Sid:

@efd TMI! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Just don't call them late for supper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm efd:

just sharing my extremely interesting DJ thoughts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Switchblade Batman:

Really great long set.
  11:07pm Carmichael:

What a goddamn day, Evan. Rock me out ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm efd:

thanks Carmichael!
  11:09pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Oh, I like this Spoon song. Nice way to drift off into the night.
  11:13pm Stevel:

  11:15pm Carmichael:

Feeling more wonderful, sir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm Switchblade Batman:

Writer's block, apropos for me right now.
Avatar 11:26pm Aharon:

A very special Jewish mother edition of the show, where Evan gives and gives! Sorry to have missed the first 4/5 but I look forward to the archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm efd:

haha, hi there Aharon!
  11:37pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

Wow , not only is Business of Dreams great the sound engineering is too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm efd:

we're very fortunate here at WFMU to have some top-shelf engineers who are willing to volunteer their time to mix all these live sessions. Hats off to Mike, Ernie, and all the rest!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I need to call my ears Lucy and Ethel what with this conveyor​ belt of live music tonight. Nice work and thanks to all involved.
