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.

Sammy with some vintage homophobia, oops :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm mariano:

@daveB: I think the Hagar doth protest too much, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm efd:

oof, really?? I did not catch that. :(
  9:16pm daveB from Oakland:

That's alright, I threw around words like that in Jr. High. Hopefully Sammy knows better by now.
Avatar 9:17pm ! I X Key !:

As a man, I must say that I couldn't hear the lyrics because my husband had yelled at me that I had to turn it down
  9:20pm daveB from Oakland:

@Xkey haha :)
  9:30pm kramrellim:

It's actually another John Ford, from the Strawbs. Richard Hudson also played with them.
Avatar 9:31pm Irwin:

John Ford was in the Strawbs, et. al. en.wikipedia.org...

This upcoming convo with @hoganhere should be a hoot

Irwin and kramrellim, thank you both for that info!

@Kat I think so too! We'll soon find out...

I believe Kelly Hogan lives in Wisconsin now.
Avatar 9:53pm Todd-o-phonic:

Off and running my man! Feel free to play God with your year end best of shows...you've earned it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

"ChicagoLAND based" then, maybe?
Avatar 9:55pm Mailman Tom:

I bought a box of chocolate chip cookies today. When I got home, I found that I had bought a box of chocolate chip cookie mix instead.
Avatar 9:56pm Aharon:

I would bet $100 million Terry is Australian. I will pay out in annual penny increments if incorrect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Stevel:

Mailman Tom: That's not all bad news. Slows down snacktime, though.
Avatar 9:58pm ! I X Key !:

LOL oh no @MT

I got a bunch of semolina flour plopped onto my doorstop by the package person
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Alex of Chicago:

Yay, Wimps. Yay, Nancy's organ.
Avatar 10:04pm Todd-o-phonic:

Evan you should ask Josh what he would have played when Rico Petrocelli strode to the plate...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Stevel:

Yes, it DOES sound awesome. (I, also, am 14 years old.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Kat in Chicago:

Max is a sweetheart, he's an auld acquaintance

The pix on Twitter really are something!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Uncle Michael:

Late to the party here...has Phil Aiken touched the organ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I got lost outside in the cold for a while, but I'm here now, safe and sound.
Avatar 10:15pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Merry Armenian Christmas. You may now take down the tree.
  10:18pm Pidge:

Ev! I'm downstairs at the door. No key!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm efd:

ack! I'm doing a phone interview for a few more minutes - will let you in asap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm efd:

can you get to the foyer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm efd:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Stevel:

Did Pidge get in? America wants to know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm efd:

He did!
  10:34pm Eddy in Australia:

@Pete from Boston: We just did! Are you Armenian, too?
Avatar 10:36pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)
That update from the Great American Organ Transplant was, well, great :)
Avatar 10:36pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Indeed I am. Some years the city has picked up the trees by now, which really sticks in my craw. We celebrated Christmas first!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm mariano:

This Hugh Cornwell is great!
Avatar 10:42pm ! I X Key !:

  10:45pm Eddy in Australia:

@Pete from Boston: In that case, Merry Armenian Christmas to you - plus Evan and everyone listening.
  10:48pm KP:

Hey, Evan!
Avatar 10:50pm Aharon:

Hmmm, I'm tempted to get Eddy in on this Terry-is-Australian question, but the internet exists too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm efd:

either way let me know what you find out!

hi KP! And hi everyone else to whom I've been too preoccupied to say hi!
Avatar 10:53pm Aharon:

Lame Drivers: The (fantastic) sound of nepotism and cronyism! I urge all listeners to go see them.
Avatar 10:54pm Todd-o-phonic:

Lame Drivers not Lame.
Avatar 10:54pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

I bet EFD digs the Stamey-isms in this vocal delivery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm efd:

you know me too well, T-O-P T!
Avatar 10:56pm Aharon:

Oh, phew, yeah: Terry=members of Dick Diver and Total Control. So definitely Australian. The shadow of the Go-Betweens looms large (and counterclockwise) down there.
  10:56pm Eddy in Australia:

@Aharon: No problem, they're from Australia - Melbourne, to be exact. All members play in a bunch of bands around town but the main bloke is Al from Total Control and Dick Diver.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm efd:

your $100 million will live to see another day, Aharon!
Avatar 10:58pm Aharon:

Thanks, Eddy!
  11:00pm Eddy in Australia:

@Aharon: You're welcome. Sorry about the timing. I don't hear the Go-Betweens so much, though.
Avatar 11:02pm Billy Jam:

hey Evan Funk Davies - enjoying the show
Avatar 11:03pm Aharon:

@EIA: I feel like it's all over the guitars. But I would defer to pretty much anyone on this comment board regarding musical knowledge.
Avatar 11:04pm Todd-o-phonic:

I didn't realize Peter Noone and Mickey Dolenz would have so much to say to each other that they would need 2 nights to have a discussion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm mariano:

Is Venom Inc related to Venom?
Avatar 11:06pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I'd like a free ticket to Monty Hall this Sunday at noon. I'm willing to pay $5 for processing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Loved the Sandie Shaw earlier!

I am unfamiliar with this Modern Man, but I love it.

My mother ate a hamburger with Joe Jackson once, she says he was quite nice.
Avatar 11:20pm Danne D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm mariano:

Wow, haven't heard this phase of Joe Jackson in a loooong time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, this is that Anthrax song!

I wondered why I knew all the words. then saw it was jj
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm mariano:

@Bronwyn: was she really dining out with him? Sorry, couldn't resist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm efd:

mariano wins! :D
Avatar 11:27pm Danne D:

Hrm, how old were you when this happened Bronwyn? Is something going wrong around here?
Avatar 11:27pm Danne D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm mariano:

@efd: what's nice about the comments board is you can say stuff like that and nobody can throw anything at you!
Avatar 11:30pm Danne D:

(other than raspberries, mariano) ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Mariano: I don't think they were "out", exactly, I think the story is she was working security at his show and he sat down next to her and they had burgers together.

@Danne D: That was like 20 years before I was born haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Well more like 10 years before I was born actually.
Avatar 11:31pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

It is my firm belief that jokes that bad need no apology.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm mariano:

@Danne D: true, but I like raspberries! @Pete: one does one's best! @Bronwyn: lucky mom! And Midge Ure was also in Thin Lizzy, right? Can't remember when he left though. Hell of a resume.
Avatar 11:34pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Tonight the show provides the background as... PETE STARTS HIS 2015 TAXES!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm mariano:

Mick Collins, the world's coolest furry. Didn't know about Midge Ure's other bands, I always get an edumacation on FMU.
  11:40pm KP:

Bronwyn, was she really going out with him
  11:41pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: Loving this Wolfmanhattan Project 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm efd:

yeah, it's great! I've been wanting to play it for a while now but hadn't gotten to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Alex of Chicago:

I was lucky to see Mick and Danny twice this year. Funny how they sound way better now than when they made those Gories records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm efd:

you saw them New Year's Eve, right? I remember seeing some pics on Twitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Alex of Chicago:

Yeah, just a little phone pic. Left the camera at home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@KP: Mariano already made that joke :P
Avatar 11:54pm Danne D:

Gotta pack up :) Thank for yet another mind-bending show, EFD :)

Until next time everyone!!
