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.

when I was backannouncing the first set I was going to say that "the sun's gonna shine in the morning" was not meant to be a weather forecast, but then I forgot to say it.

@efd: I appreciate the idea. Holy crap this weather.

Simply Saucer were from Toronto I think, but they are long gone. Only active in the mid/late '70s.

Halifax Ed, fill us in!

Seriously .....don't worry about it . I'm just busting ...something
  Wed. 7/25/18 10:59pm steveL:

clue-sone? Poisson Rouge?
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:18pm Halifax Ed:

Simply Saucer were from Hamilton, Ontario which isn't too far from Toronto. They never released a full lp while an active band. The song you played was produced by Daniel Lanoix and his brother. Edgar Breau is the brains behind the operation and he got the band back together for a bit in the mid-2000's.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:19pm Ignore Function:

I've heard of Simply Saucer playing reunion gigs recently.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:19pm Halifax Ed:

*** Lanois
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:25pm Fashion Tashjian:

Good morning from a brutal Yerevan. Might get up to 40 Celsius today, but, good thing we have such cool djs on FMU.))) Yeah, I didn't laugh either.

Neat! Also loving Lloyd Cole. I went out to see him after hearing him on your show. Few years back now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/25/18 11:43pm efd:

yeah, that must have been 4 or 5 years ago! That album came out in 2013, somehow.
  Wed. 7/25/18 11:45pm Fashion Tashjian:

@EFD do you mean the weather or the joke?)))
