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.

Elton! Around 1977, my brother and I split up our record collection. I kept all the Eltons (5,6.. records?) and he got the rest (30 ish?). I still feel I got the better deal.

One thing people should know is you can send money to WFMU anytime you want to...'it' always counts toward the same goal!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Handy Haversack:

These first few songs have been great music to sweep up broken glass to! Which I needed. Thanks, @efd.

Evening, all!

Pugs in Dutch are "Grumblehunden" for their (constant, adorable) muttering.
Avatar 9:14pm herb.nyc:

But spk'ng of Young Jean Lee, Evan plays a great song of hers via band Future Wife. I saw her "we're gonna die" musical today. Kinda bland and uninspiring, but I'd see her next play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Kat in Chicago:

"Grumblehunden" is a truly delightful word, and new to me.

A couple years ago, my nieces had a little pug puppy. He was strutting about the yard carrying a corn cob, like he was king of the county. That cob was like half his body length.

Never met a pug that knew its size. *Bred to adorn the lap of the Son of Heaven*.

Archaea - usually single-celled, prokaryotic microorganisms of a domain (Archaea) that includes methanogens and those of harsh environments (such as acidic hot springs, hypersaline lakes, and deep-sea hydrothermal vents) which obtain energy from a variety of sources (such as carbon dioxide, acetate, ammonia, sulfur, or sunlight)
Avatar 10:04pm javakid:

Archaea constitute a domain of single-celled organisms. These microorganisms lack cell nuclei and are therefore prokaryotes. Archaea were initially classified as bacteria, receiving the name archaebacteria, but this classification is outmoded.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm efd:

thank you Kat! Those who know, know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Sid:

On fundraising shows, you learn things about your hosts that you would otherwise not know as they are stretching to fill air time. Their angst is our gain.

And the Associates, wow.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm mariano:

A while back I was at the Dungeon, a metal/kinda gothy bar in the French Quarter that's been around since the late 60s. They've always had a great jukebox and sound system. Someone played AC/DC's "Walk All Over You", which I hadn't heard in years, and it blew me away, especially being at a proper volume.

Ok, thanks efd, great show, see the rest of y'all later!
