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.

The Jeopardy GOAT episode ends and then EFD opens with a Bowie set? What an excellent way to spend a Wednesday night coughing repeatedly in my apartment!

Hey EFD, would you mind if I posted a link to the Bowie tribute I'm part of Friday in Brooklyn?
  Wed. 1/8/20 9:13pm Fragonard:

That was a sad day. I cried all night
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/8/20 9:13pm efd:

@Figgsrock not at all! Thoughtful of you to ask first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/8/20 9:16pm Figgsrock:

Thanks @EFD. It's called Loving the Alien and it's Friday at Littlefield starting at 10:30. 4 plus hours of Bowie music spun by me with visuals from Music Video Time Machine.
And here's the link for info: www.littlefieldnyc.com...

Whoever played tambourine on “Width of a Circle” (live version) was brilliant (...not kidding)

Hello Evan...Hello all. Loving this 70's Bowie attack! Lodger is my favorite album of his. Great way to drive home after a long day. Now...home and continuing the ride.
  Wed. 1/8/20 9:19pm Fragonard:

(OK, i’m a nerd...)

Wouldn’t it be hip....DB and Elvis do birthday duet....like with Bingo....love to hear El doing “Panic in Detroit “....

@Ken, me too, and I think also Mary Wing's show @Fragonard, yes, I cried too. Still feel sad when I think about him. Happy birthday DB (RIP).

Nice Bowie picks. Saw him start a show in 1983 with Look Back in Anger in front of about 30,000 people in Sydney, blew my mind at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/8/20 9:33pm Aitch:

Modern Nature sounding very good indeed.

Did Bowie & Dylan ever collaborate? Oh, maybe it was called Don’t Look Back in Anger?
  Wed. 1/8/20 9:39pm JK:

Like this Modern Nature set. Somewhat of a Spiritualized type of sound.
  Wed. 1/8/20 9:40pm JK:

Ha Fragonard...Bowie did "Song For Bob Dylan" on Hunky Dory.
  Wed. 1/8/20 9:41pm Fragonard:

Oh right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/8/20 9:41pm Aitch:

Don’t Look Back in Anger is a dreadful Oasis track

Eeew sorry folks

Hey EFD, is it possible to ask Jack Cooper what happened to Ultimate Painting and will they record again ?

  Wed. 1/8/20 9:49pm jr:

Guitar buzzing isn’t really audible over the air, FWIW. Sounds great!
