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.

What up to all Funky Bonus Babies out there tonight, and a special hey-oh to any Blue Jays fans out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/12/17 9:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...interwebz say: ...'‘The Who’s’ bassist, John Entwistle, came to play a hugely significant role in Cast’s success giving the band a real boost of encouragement; a friendship was struck and the band begun to record at John’s studio. ‘All Change’ was produced by the legendary John Leckie, the man behind ‘The Stone Roses’ debut, whose credits include ‘Radiohead’, ‘New Order’ and ‘The Verve’ to name a few'...
  Wed. 7/12/17 9:35pm medson:

Love this.

Heya Evan. I seem to remember a band called Baseball.

I'm transfixed. Ya gotta believe! Do you think it'll turn out alright?
Avatar    Wed. 7/12/17 9:46pm JakeGould:

Has any child in the world ever grown to enjoy baseball because of “Casey at the Bat.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/12/17 9:48pm efd:

I think any that did are dead by now.

If only Starski had been from Flushing instead of the Bronx...
Avatar    Wed. 7/12/17 9:52pm JakeGould:

To be fair, my dad once told me he freaked out a bit at the 1925 “Ben Hur” when he was 10 himself… So heck… Who knows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/12/17 9:52pm medson:

these songs really tie the room together, do they not?
  Wed. 7/12/17 9:55pm Carmichael:

That Len Dykstra interview was something else.

Debbie Harry is the undisputed queen of rock 'n roll. Am I exaggerating?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/12/17 11:08pm medson:

Bob Gruen captured some amazing images of Debbie.
Avatar    Wed. 7/12/17 11:10pm chris_in_space:

@Julie if the title is undisputed, there is no room for debate. Amirite?
  Wed. 7/12/17 11:13pm Julie M Brooklyn:

Well, I get carried away, Chris. Do you have a contender?

OMG Terre's old bed track

Oh, goody! Terre T on the mic break!
Avatar    Wed. 7/12/17 11:22pm chris_in_space:

@Julie, I don't know about any queen of rock n roll, but hearing this tune reminds me of the queen of rock on the dial, and I nominate Terre T.
  Wed. 7/12/17 11:25pm Julie M Brooklyn:

OK! Terre T does rule, after all. Thanks, Evan, for a good show, I'm gonna slide off to sleepy town on this track.
