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.

How many tours of amerika has jeff lynye canceled due to lack of sales.....book smaller...

It's blowing now, baby!!!

SEVENTIES, P-90! Seventies.

BOOM! Little dogs flying by!

If I was still at the newspaper, I might have to drive out in this. But I don't!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/26/17 9:11pm Drunken Creep:

@ATF, it's funny because Jeff Lynne is a major legend, and it seems like the music industry knows that, but the general public does not. For instance decades ago when I discovered traveling wilburys, he was the one guy I knew nothing about. Now after combing the ELO and solo catalog I see the guy has written and recorded dozens of incredible songs. It's interesting that Tom Petty sells out big tours (I think) and Jeff Lynne does not.
  Wed. 4/26/17 9:13pm P-90:

Ooooops, seventies is what I meant.
Or The Seventies.

The radio edit of ELO ROB that charted was shorter, yes? Or is that another brain cell over the side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/26/17 9:17pm efd:

stay safe out there, Stevel! Hope you've got that hand-cranked internet radio at the ready.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/26/17 9:18pm efd:

definitely was a shorter edit for Top 40 radio.
  Wed. 4/26/17 9:19pm Stevel:

Oh, I'm good unless we lose the cell tower. (Muy dramatic, eh?)

Ken: Lots of people say that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/26/17 9:25pm Drunken Creep:

@fleep, there are a couple of versions of ELO ROB, including one where the band makes funny/rude noises into the microphones for about 30 seconds or so

Hey all. A week without @efd's theme song just ain't right. It's good to be here!
