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.

hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in tonight! Gladshot are here setting up and soundchecking so it's a little more frantic than usual. They should be on around 9:30-9:45, and then the Piggies live set will air at around 10:30. Pack a lunch!
  Wed. 5/29/19 9:16pm steveL:

Wow, to London. Remember seeing their albums. Not sure I ever heard them.

Initially, I remembered them as an early U-2-esque band Would packaging have played a role in my passing them up?

I don't want to get off topic but I remember back in 1969 they tried to tell us that we were all about sex drugs and rock and roll... I still think we're about peace love Brotherhood concern for the ecology and the economy...etc..?!?...:)O(:
