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.

McPhee's steel on that was nice.

uh, I believe you mean Hugh Cregg!

it's OK though, he wasn't singing one of his own dumb songs.

Hi Evan... lovin' the show tonight!

Nice to see former Slade members up to something new and tuneful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 9:43pm Santos L Halper:

Don't know these guys, but they sound pretty great.
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 9:44pm efd:

they ARE pretty great!

I love a joyful background singer.

I agree exactly with what Santos said! Rockin'!

haha, well done Barkevious.

Hi Loretta! Thanks for listening!
And hi/thanks to U. Michael, Mildred, P-go, Holly, Courtney, jmd, 12539, and all of you who have not made yourselves known to me!

Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 9:53pm efd:

why is everyone so surprised that I'd be having a band that is really good playing live on my show? :D
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 9:54pm party sub:

he wasn't lying when he said they'd be playing hits. great stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 9:57pm Holly in NC:

I love, love Valley Lodge. Is it odd that I think that whoever in the band is doing backing vox sounds a lot like Toody Cole (Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows) ? I know genders diverge...
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 9:58pm efd:

Phil's voice is pan-gender, and I don't think he'd mind me saying that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 10:04pm Holly in NC:

I heartily applaud Phil's pan-gender vocals! On 'All my Loving' he was more reminiscent of Scissor Sisters. Yes, I like Scissor Sisters.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:09pm Droll:

I knew this was Mike Sin engineering before I looked because it sounds like a fully mastered album. Best staff engineer by 6-9dB.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:11pm Droll:

...and the band isn't doing too badly, either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 10:11pm Holly in NC:

This WILL be added to the FMA, yes?
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 10:13pm efd:

Yes it will!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

Does Tragedy have an umlaut?
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 10:23pm efd:

I don't think they need one!
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:25pm Droll:

Cassettes Vs. MySpace -- the ultimate futility smackdown!
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:29pm Pine:

I've got this theory that it is the 80's again.
The 80's with vidphones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

I think they should have one over the g.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

I really enjoyed your guests, Evan. I'm calling it an evening. Night all.
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 10:40pm efd:

thanks UM! See you Friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

Great. I'm giving JFK a big sendoff.
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 10:41pm efd:

oh boy.
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:48pm Droll:

Blowfly WILL be added to the FMA, yes?
  Wed. 11/20/13 10:52pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Really?! Autotune on Agnetha? Is that really necessary?
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:55pm Droll:

[weeping on MftLC's shoulder] They use autotune like ketchup or ranch dressing.
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 10:55pm efd:

yeah, there's no call for that.
  Wed. 11/20/13 10:58pm P-90:

@Michael: I was just thinking the same thing....is that sound so "now" that even really professional singers have to use it to sound like real groovy, with-it, swingers? And: won't autotuned tracks sound real dated and passe in just a few years?
Avatar Wed. 11/20/13 10:58pm Droll:

...and don't get me started on loudness wars. I refer back to my just-tuned-in comment about Mike Sin's use of dynamics and natural sound. Luckily I need to make dinner now, so that's all I can rant now.
  Wed. 11/20/13 11:00pm P-90:

@Droll: "like ketchup or ranch dressing" ha ha
  Wed. 11/20/13 11:09pm Michael from the Left Coast:

and unfortunate

there must have been some shameful ticket hoarders in the past
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 11:31pm efd:

Some people are very persistent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 11:35pm Holly in NC:

Heh. I dozed off for a sec and snapped back to the dubby Factory Floor - in my twilight state I thought was listening to Thomas S's Sunday am show (his bed music is all dub), momentarily completely disoriented.

The Mighty Pope is grounding me :-)
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 11:36pm Alex of Chicago:

@efd You said Mike Doughty is a friend? I really enjoyed his book. I'll try to see him if he comes around.
Avatar    Wed. 11/20/13 11:38pm efd:

ha, I figured that would get your attention Holly!

Alex, he's a friend of the station - I don't know him, but I know he's been down here a couple of times. I wouldn't be surprised if he does a Chicago show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/20/13 11:44pm Holly in NC:

Both Gap Dream & Cosmonauts efd sessions @ FMA are SO GOOD, anyone who missed the show needs to go dl/listen asap

still kind of blown away by how much gap dreams's sound has evolved in just a year or two. fun to watch

Alex, totally agree!
