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 grew up by the top end of 81. I've run the section from Scranton to Syracuse at least once a month for the past 20 years. But I've only been south of Scranton a handful of times, and south of Harrisburg only twice, driving to New Orleans both times. It's a pretty drive, but lots of trucks and stupid drivers.

From the author's afterword, it didn't seem like it was based on a specific incident but on his research through the whole industry and its use of Africa. He actually says that the truth that he encountered in his research is much worse than what is in the book.
