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.

hello hello! I was starting to worry that the Internet was broken!
  9:07pm JakeGould:

It kinda broke last night when my friends were either talking about that stupid speech or the guy who licked a doorbell for 3 hours.
  Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Julie M:

Now we're talkin'! Hi Evan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm efd:

hi Julie!
  9:19pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi Evan, Happy New Year to you and the Wednesday night crew. Killer opening set. So glad to be listening live this week.
  Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Julie M:

Just to qualify, by the way, I mean the whole set so far. Music takes you back so easily...
Avatar 9:23pm Mailman Tom:

I was heartbroken when I read her obit in the NYT a few days ago. What a gal!
Avatar 9:23pm Hoboken Jack:

Howdy EFD, Glenn, all! R.I.P. female drummer whose name escapes me right now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm BLCKDGRD:

Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm efd:

you're welcome!
  9:34pm Pedro in Arlington:

Cannot play too much Bowie. OK, maybe not the 80s stuff. But the rest is more than fine.
  9:40pm JakeGould:

Let’s Dance is a decent album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm efd:

I forgot to mention that next month Chris O'Leary is coming back on my show to talk about his follow-up Bowie song-by-song book, Ashes To Ashes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm efd:

(he came on a couple of years ago to talk about his first book, Rebel Rebel)
Avatar 9:46pm herb.nyc:

Gary Olson song is great! I saw a Ladybug T cd at thrift, didn't buy (ugh!). Anyway, I thought Robert Forster? Esp since he's gonna release a record.
  9:47pm Robin Eisgrau:

Awesome show as usual Evan! loved the glammy opening trax and the nod to Ian Dury.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Barkevious Shabazz:

More than a little Go Betweens feel to that Gary Olson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm chris_in_space:

@efd, great to hear about the upcoming interview with Chris O’Leary. Over the years, I've read some great books based on your author interviews. I'm betting this will be no different.
  9:56pm JakeGould:

EFD has good taste.
  10:00pm herb.nyc:

EFD is less filling!

Hi Evan and gang!

You're equal, but different.
Avatar 10:06pm RobinSays:

Do The Suburban Homes have anything to do with Suburban Lawns? ;) BTW this is Robin Eisgrau -- had a little wonkiness with my account.
  10:09pm Jhaykhay:

What's the missing song?? Between l.o.x. And collate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm efd:

shit did I really forget to enter one??
  10:11pm JakeGould:

Tastes great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm efd:

I don't think I did? I don't see anything lying around
  10:11pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Hiya EFD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm efd:

hi Robin, no connection apart from both having "suburban" in their names
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm nickybones:

this is amazing. my gf is frantically searching discogs now. haha. HI EVAN!
  10:25pm Bklyn Listener:

Great show as per usual. Thanks for the Poprocks with EFD in the mornings too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm efd:

thanks and thanks, Bklyn Listener!
  10:30pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Is this a new song from the High Dials?
Avatar 10:40pm herb.nyc:

Via Evans's Instagram, I learned he's aka Devin. (Who did todays NYTimes x/word? Dya see the cute vowel thing?) - oh, Less Filling!
Avatar 10:52pm javakid:

read the Stamey autobiography that came out this year. he loved the Everly Bros. as a young boy.
Avatar 10:53pm twinoak170:

Wow, loving this one.
Avatar 10:53pm javakid:

and a Saint Etienne curated album with this song no less
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm efd:

it has to be the creepiest of all Everly Brothers songs, right??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Alex of Chicago:

I'm working, so can't comment much, but loving this set. Creepy Everly Brothers is my thing, but all the rest as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I've always wondered, is Union Pool a place with a swimming pool or billiards?
  11:06pm morphe:

Normally heard you after 3pm (198?)NYC in the backroom of Barnes&Noble(18st).
Just awoke to your theme tune in my freezing attic in Madrid(0501CET) and thought I was in B&N
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm nickybones:

@Ken From Hyde Park: neither! but, it does have a taco truck.
  11:13pm JakeGould:

@morphe: Now that is a memory!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm efd:

ha, that's funny morphe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm efd:

I think Union Pool was previously a (swimming) pool business, hence the name?
  11:19pm morphe:

chris_in_space: you must find the film"Robinson in Space"
a genuine SITUATIONIST Derivee around Defoe's England.
Does anyone out there know the "Situatioinsts" Guy Debord, Vaneigman..
the "derives" or the "Detourment" ??? Worth finding at your Local Anarchist Bookshop: SITUATIONIST ANTHOLOGY [title] is a good starting point
  11:23pm morphe:

Jake: Just woke up because it is 0500 in Madrid...Do you not rest? Must be the Cod Liver Oil??? Great Scot song: "Cod Liver Oil and the Orange Juice" Granny's would sneak it into juice.. Mothers rammed it down the throat!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm DocBlueDog:

Woot. Just here for a visit. Thanks for the tickets to Union Pool Friday night and flashbacks to my late night ticket winning when I first moved to NYC back in 1985. Good times. Great show. Woot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm DocBlueDog:

ps Society of the Spectacle is hard to miss if you’re remotely interested in shit. :)
Avatar 11:32pm RobinSays:

Public Practice are really good. Are they a current band? I sense a little Waitresses/Pulsallama ness about them.
  11:32pm morphe:

Doc..Go Doc!!!! Did you know Debord committed suicide?? Do not recall the year.
Avatar 11:33pm javakid:

liked the Public Practice track as well. Discogs has them on a split 12'' with Flasher. Flasher are a Priests side project and I see the similarities across all those bands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm efd:

interesting, javakid, I wasn't aware of the Flasher connection. I liked their album from last year a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm efd:

@Robin, agree with your take on their sound
  11:51pm steveL:

Dear God! I've nearly missed it all, watching Moonstruck with my wife! To the archives!
Avatar 11:52pm javakid:

looks like a limited edition flexi with flasher and public practice to support a tour. so that's the connection and a show I would have very much liked to have seen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm efd:

ooh yeah, that would have been pretty great!
  11:54pm darue keller:

doctors of madness are so good, essential for any violin rock comp
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Aitch:

Nice show. Thanks efd.
  11:56pm steveL:

That sounds pretty cool.
