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

hi everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Folsom:

Hi all, is it wrong to ask for more Interactiv (tm) shows? Maybe a Gofundme page for EFD to travel and buy records?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My new avatar likes this one! (Wireless)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm efd:

hi Melinda, hi Folsom! No Gofundme page necessary, I'll keep traveling and record shopping! I just need time in between excursions to process (and play!) everything that I get!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm medson:

  Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Julie M:

Ken from HP, I think your new avatar likes a lot of these songs.
Avatar 9:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Kat: Nancy is the greatest, but when the color is off registration - Sublime!
  Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Julie M:

Oh, gee and sorry, Evan, I like to hope it goes without saying that I'm liking the songs as much as Ken from HP's new avatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm efd:

haha, I was bold enough to presume that was the case. :)
  9:58pm Stevel:

Getting all Bill Kelly on us, eh? Well, PROCLAIM AWAY!!
  9:59pm JakeGould:

@KenFromHydePark: Cats don’t bop their heads like that.
  10:01pm JakeGould:

But the Synthetics are really kicking it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm efd:

@melinda, belated thank you for that Bo Ramsey update! I love that a) you knew who he was, and b) he was still playing music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Amanda Nazario:

Whoa Piggies! Now that's what I call music!

It's that sonic rush of wind sound that takes me back to the Reagan years.
  10:57pm Stevel:

Top form, efd! Just keep tossing records on! It feels good out here in the hinterlands!
