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.

I wonder if it possible to broadcast a post-recorded show? like it was recorded after it was originally broadcast?

Terrific Pernice record, terrific Mercury Lounge show. I enjoyed watching drummer Patrick Berkery sing along tho he wasn't mic'd.

aw man, I'm gonna have to catch them if/when they come back!

One of my favorite Ramones tracks. Been trying to get a certain band to cover it.

oho!
  Wed. 11/6/19 11:18pm Rick A.:

Former Small Faces pianist Ian McLagan also played in The Empty Hearts. Sadly, he is not listening because he died five years ago.
  Wed. 11/6/19 11:20pm antonio:

**still bitter about failing on the Boaty Weekender
  Wed. 11/6/19 11:23pm Rick A.:

McLagan married Keith Moon's estranged ex-wife a month after Moon died. She and her daughter moved in with McLagan who has lived in Austin, TX. However, more sadness, she died near their home in a car accident in 2006, too much death in this story!
  Wed. 11/6/19 11:26pm Rick A.:

I should have said that McLagan had been living in Austin where he died of a stroke at the age of 69.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 11:27pm efd:

wow, yeah, sad story all the way around. :(

the silver lining here is that I did not forget any (current) members of the Empty Hearts....
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 11:28pm Joe B:

re McLagen's wife dying in that crash -- I had a phone interview scheduled with him, and emailed his publicist saying I understand about canceling, and she wrote back, no no, he wants to do it. was pretty awkward from my end but Mac seemed to be handling it better than me.
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 11:30pm Joe B:

also, two great segues in this set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 11:31pm Kat in Chicago:

This is an ABBA song I always forget about but it's pretty great. This copy sounds well-loved ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 11:32pm efd:

Thanks Kat, that it is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 11:33pm efd:

accidentally cued up the short version, though.
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 11:33pm Joe B:

wow, missed the visitors in the 80s. only thing i remember from that period was the Frida solo single
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 11:35pm efd:

@Joe I think this was the year before her solo record? Thanks for noticing the segues! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 11:36pm Kat in Chicago:

Evan is always good for a quality segue
