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.

Other than the clear bigotry against Kentucky, I like this show.
  Wed. 1/2/19 9:58pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

This Dark Blue record was one of my favorites of the year. Sounds like it crawled out of some goth’s record collection circa 1985. Band also has a very entertaining Twitter account as well.

Fight for Love, what a song ^^

Dark Blue = Sugar 45 @ 33rpm. This is a good thing(and I'm not even stoned!)
