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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Good Lord Almighty!
Avatar 9:04pm On the Yazoo:

That got my attention !!

Hey all
  9:07pm steveL:

I would have loved Sunset Bombers. A year earlier than I guessed. Might explain the bits of sonic edge that might have led me to call them “punk”. In fairness, that was a pretty broad category in late 70s Denver.
  9:10pm steveL:

Cool drumming on Europeans.
  9:15pm steveL:

Disco/Rock believers? Mostly present, I presume.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm efd:

if not here, where?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Quasi Mojo:

EFD, if you ever create a t-shirt premium, that slogan goes on the shirt.
Avatar 9:21pm On the Yazoo:

I remember that late 80's cheap vinyl "hissing" grrr
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm efd:

yes, so bad!!
Avatar 9:27pm twinoak170:

Hi Mr. Funk and everyone!
Avatar 9:38pm twinoak170:

Can you play something a little more uptempo.
Avatar 9:39pm Mailman Tom:

Christ these guys are good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm DouglasInDallas:

"Before He Joined the Knack" is a good band name LOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm efd:

I would listen to that record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm jmd:

Terrific jackson politick.
  9:58pm ashestoashes:

Snowing tonight here in Southern Vermont. Despite streaming I pretend I need to adjust the aluminum foil on a faux antenna like the old days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm efd:

how much snow are you expecting, ashestoashes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm ashestoashes:

Maybe 4-5 inches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm ashestoashes:

7" is an ep of snow, 12 inches is a long playing storm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm efd:

seems like a CD's worth of snow is no big deal by Vermont standards
  Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Julie M:

It doesn't snow like it used to in Vermont. Why, in MY day...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm efd:

ha, hi Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm ashestoashes:

Some day it will all be digital snow. Isnow.
  Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Julie M:

Hi, efd. I could imagine listening to this Modern Nature song with snow falling outside tonight. But I sure couldn't imagine shoveling it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm ashestoashes:

One tends to shovel it listening to the frenetics of Clay Pigeon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm ashestoashes:

At night you just listen to modern nature and watch it fall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm listener 126464:

yeah this is nice
  Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Julie M:

True, true, ashestoashes. Enjoy the snow this eve, for tomorrow ye shall shovel.
  10:28pm JetBoy of Brooklyn:

I really like this Robert Forester!
  10:40pm sunisthedrug:

Feels like you’ve played these tulips before and I love it
  10:59pm steveL:

Love this Ty Segal cover pick. Very cool.
Avatar 11:00pm On the Yazoo:

Love the first Chicago Transit Authority album.. Ty must as well.
