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.

that was nice
  9:12pm medson:

That Cheap Trick sounded so good driving home. Turned up really loud.
  9:13pm Eddy in Australia:

Hey Evan and all. Can't believe it's a year since I was there in the studio. Are you doing the Record Fair Listening Party tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm efd:

hey Eddy! Wow, I can't believe it's been a year either! Believe it or not I made NO PURCHASES at this year's fair! I was selling this year and pretty much stuck to my table (apart from occasional trips to the food stand and rest room).
  9:16pm andrewb:

weirdly one of my favorite driving songs is Cheap Trick's cover of "don't be cruel"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm efd:

(plus I still have a whole mess of records from last fall's Chicago/Milwaukee trip I haven't got to yet)
  9:17pm JakeGould:

Hey EFD! This sounds like a perfect weird summery show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm listener 126464:

Hollie was with Shiela B. a couple months ago. great show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Blahr...I recognize the Peter Murphy song. Have not heard it in many years.
  9:24pm Eddy in Australia:

Wow, can't believe you didn't make a single purchase! Although I know that feeling of looking at a pile of unplayed records from past trips.
  9:25pm JakeGould:

@Ken: Erin Go Blahr!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm efd:

I was trying to maximize my profits! :D
  9:27pm JakeGould:

I wonder if there’s a market for coating the KonMari method to record collectors?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Matt Clarke:

Hey efd! A rare Weds nite off, so I am sitting up on the roof enjoying you over the FM dial!
  9:34pm Eddy in Australia:

I have a foggy memory of that New Inspiration song from my ('70s) childhood.
Evan: Why didn't you buy the actual Commodores album instead?!
  9:35pm Eddy in Australia:

JakeGould: Get to work on that idea and let me know when it's ready for action!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm efd:

nice, happy to have you Matt! And of course that goes for all the rest of you as well! Thanks for joining me tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm efd:

Eddy, it was a few years after that LP came out and the record they were playing in-store was that soundtrack, so that's what I bought.
  9:37pm Jeff k:

Love the Lake Ruth album
  9:44pm medson:

I really like this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm efd:

haven't been able to give it a thorough listen yet but I like what I've heard so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Quasi Mojo:

Mets lost. Braves are now first place in NL east
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Quasi Mojo:

It was quite an ugly loss to boot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm efd:

and a deGrom injury, I think I saw??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Quasi Mojo:

Yes, that's correct. and I think the Mets only had 2 hits for the night
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Quasi Mojo:

No remedy for a sore loser like hearing some new tracks on the EFD show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

haha, glad I can help a little bit
  10:08pm Jerry koosmsn jr:

great meeting you at the record fair!
next time I will remember your first name...hey..do you remember a group of white prep school kids who played funk?
from the 80s.Miller Miller and Miller and Sloan???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm efd:

sure do, those kids played all the time back when I was at NYU. Pretty sure I have their single at home too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Quasi Mojo:

ha no. 36
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Mister Dobalina:

This set is hitting the spot!!
  10:15pm Jerry koosman jr:

I can't believe no one signed them!

maybe due to underage drummer!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Quasi Mojo:

The history of Spiny Normen on their bandcamp page is pretty funny
  10:34pm Mike Sin:

Very much enjoy the Moondoggies. Listening live from Arizona! Woke up this morning to a foot of snow at the Grand Canyon. Now 20 degrees warmer.
  10:35pm JakeGould:

@EddyinAustralia: I’ll let you know! And if you fly me out to Australia? Even better, mate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm efd:

hi Mike! Whoa, and I thought the weather here was wacky. Thanks for tuning in, have a great time out there!
  10:40pm herb.nyc:

XTC triggered a Monday memory, wfmu's Mark R aired a journalist's interview w colin m and terry c. I woke to pee and heard parts, then promptly forgot. Til now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm efd:

he's got part 2 of that interview coming up on his show this week! Will mention at the next mic break.
  10:46pm Stevel:

Tonight's vibe fits me well. Been a weird few months. Just life, but it wears. Not sure how this is a compliment to you, but there you go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Quasi Mojo:

That was a meaty set
Avatar 10:57pm Hoboken Jack:

If that 9 acts I've seen, 1 I haven't meme comes around again, Frankie Cosmos would be a good fake for me. Right up my alley, have had a million opportunities, but have never seen her.
  11:15pm andrewb:

nights in white satin on white vinyl of course (dickies 7")
  11:25pm medson:

Thanks for the great tunes efd. Off to dream land
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm efd:

goodnight medson!
  11:52pm Eddy in Australia:
