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.

Howdy from smoky Sydney, Australia still mostly on fire, so Burn It Down was even more appropriate than usual yesterday.

I strongly suspect that independent British synth pop didn't really want to be independent.
  9:30pm juli:

evan....you make me feel like I'm at a live concert...the anticipation and tension build up...like incredible foreplay...thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Some of Chandra's strongest early radio support came from the amazing Lee Paris at Philly's WXPN. And I think her original label GoGo was out of Philly too.

Lurking, now emerging, only to soon slide into unconsciousness. Great show, especially after some rocky days with a loved one. Med changes are no bullshit. Wednesday nights are wonderful!

Thanks for music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm efd:

thanks for checking in, SteveL... hope the situation with your loved one stabilizes soon.
Avatar 11:41pm Roberto:

This might be my favorite track from the first Pretenders LP, if only because it never gets enough recognition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Aitch:

Bought this Pretenders new in the day. This the best track, nice pick EFD.
