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.

Hey Alex, I'm from Chicago. Heard the lake is high this year

Now this feels like Junior High School.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm coelacanth∅:

great song!
hi Evan
  9:13pm medson:

entertainment! is a perfect album in my opinion :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm coelacanth∅:

absolutely, medson
  Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Julie M:

Oh gosh, now that's a conversation, Medson. So many perfect albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Alex of Chicago:

i see where the horns in this song are going
  9:17pm Marie:

I think I am fighting off a cold that I got from a coworker. I think I am going to kill him (please don't tell the police!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Kat in Chicago:

It's always time for the perculater!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Alex of Chicago:

juke, juke, juke
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm KidProJoe:

It is definitely time for this.
  9:19pm Marie:

Love the spelling--"Cajmere"
  9:24pm Marie:

Anybody going to see pete murphy in New york? is he still here? I have to see about that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm efd:

sadly the rest of his shows have been postponed - he had a heart attack earlier in the week.
  9:25pm Shirley:

Marie, please, don't kill your coworker. You know you will regret it, unless you are a psychopath
  9:26pm Marie:

@efd--oh wow, I did not know that. I hope he is gonna be okay.
Avatar 9:26pm RobinSays:

Wishing Peter Murphy a speedy recovery. He is a singular talent. His songs comingle beauty and darkness brilliantly.
  9:29pm Marie:

@Shirley--is willfully withholding a heimlich maneuver considered murder?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Kat in Chicago:

Eating dishes would be pretty punk rock I guess
Avatar 9:30pm JakeGould:

A lot of co-workers deserve urine in their k-cups.
  9:30pm Marie:

Might cure her of any disease, Kat
  9:32pm Marie:

Jake, I am down with that

Meth is a hell of a drug.

Thanks Marie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Alex of Chicago:

that intro...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Kat in Chicago:

That Peter Cook bit was delightful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Bootsie:

OH yessssss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

what's weird is the CD says it's a promo for this song but he was talking more about the title track than this one I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Kat in Chicago:

I think that was a mistake too. There was even a bit of No. 1 heard at the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm efd:

right!
@Bootsie what do you know about this??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm efd:

there's another track that's called "promo spot for No. 1 In Heaven that comes before the single version of that song but I haven't listened to it yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Kat in Chicago:

Maybe they got them mixed up?
  9:52pm scobot:

Any chance you could play The Incredible He Woman/Stereolab?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Bootsie:

@efd I haven't heard it before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

@scobot Mmmmmaybe.... but if I do it wouldn't be for at least an hour, just to manage expectations
  9:59pm scobot:

Thank you. Listening from Ft. Lauderdale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Bootsie:

Well, guess I need to buy that reissue now!
  10:02pm seedfriend:

Following!
  10:03pm seedfriend:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Kat in Chicago:

Yesssss I love "Forget Me Nots"
  10:04pm 123:

Maybe have some respect for your audience...f your stupid horn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Fuzzy:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Kat in Chicago:

Ha, this is like the sullen mature version of that Juniper track
Avatar 10:31pm Hoboken Jack:

I woke up just in time for the interview! Can we pretend I'm one of those international listeners where it would be normal to be waking up now?
Avatar 10:53pm Johnny S:

She's writing and illustrating a children's book called "A Teacup In Space." I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Bootsie:

So, SO happy this got re-released.
Avatar 11:06pm Frank Verplanck:

Does anyone else hear an echo of "Roundabout" by Yes in the guitar intro and at the break?
  11:06pm sufferwords:

roto toms? sweet - deserving of the twin spin- what a happening Alaskan she is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm efd:

she was such a delight! So glad I was able to talk to her, glad you all enjoyed as well.
  11:12pm DB:

The vocals on that Graham Day sounded uncannily like Ted Leo...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm efd:

@DB oh interesting... I didn't make that connection, will listen again!
  11:19pm DB:

@efd It faked me out for a bit for sure. Great show tonight!

Electric Mistress must be the girlfriend of the Electric Warrior! I'm a Staghag all over again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Bootsie:

Yeah, I like this one OK...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm efd:

Staghag! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Alex of Chicago:

thanks for the interview, @efd, especially as a product (sort of) of the PNW
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm efd:

my pleasure Alex!
Avatar 11:48pm Hackensack Slim:

NYT Crosswords also love that Emo. And I love that Fake ID!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm efd:

Yay! Yeah, Emo and Eno make regular appearances!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Alex of Chicago:

The opera questions will still be there when we're gone.
  12:00am Kat in Chicago:

I heard Roundabout this time around, haha
  12:00am sufferwords:

triple spin - i’m bedazzled by all this noise - rock!!!
