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.

Tom, I wish I had a line on that Ram Jam album - that was vinyl from the station library. Listen to 3 Chord Monte tomorrow, one of the guys from Ram Jam is in the band he's having on.

  Tue. 1/15/08 12:01am Randy in NC:

Hurrah's! What a great place that was. I didn't go, but recall the incident you mentioned. It was so clean and spacious compared to CB's and Max's. Plus there were girls there... It was right near Lincoln Center, I think they knocked down the bldg it was in and put some thing hi rise there, no?
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:05am Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

Remember ""A&7""" haha
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:05am crunk:

  Tue. 1/15/08 12:14am crunk:

gimme some liner notes!!!
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:21am efd:

someone out there should look up Jimmy Page and the Factotums, I'm almost sure he played guitar on at least one of their songs at some point.
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:23am efd:

i would also like to know what "chido liro" means.
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:26am punx:

Jimmy Page was in the studio at the time and laid down a 12 string guitar fill in &#8220;Can&#8217;t Go Home Anymore My Love&#8221;

si. http://www.manchesterbeat.com/bands/factotums/factotums.php
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:29am Nikola:

Yep. Jimmy Page did something with "Hip Young Guitar Singer." And Babelfish refuses to cooperate with all of this silly lingo going about.
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:30am efd:

a-HAAA! thank you, punx and Nikola!
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:34am demonique:

  Tue. 1/15/08 12:36am Nikola:

I actually might be wrong with my discovery. I really don't know. punx is definitely right though. Anyone in this joint listen to Idiot Flesh?
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:41am Ainsley:

IDIOT FLESH
  Tue. 1/15/08 12:51am Randy in NC:

Wikipedia - Hip Young Guitar Slinger - A compilation of pre Zeppelin studio sessions, recorded 1962 - 1966. The Factotums are disk 2, track 8.
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:03am Matt:

Don't trust anyone over thirty is a collab between japanther and artist Dan Graham. That's maybe why it seems like a concept album.
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:07am Julie Bean:

oceans of sound...great stuff.
so big ups to the DJ
and big ups to RON PAUL.
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:10am churner:

if nominated, i shall not run.

if elected, i shall not serve.
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:16am slugluv1313:

Tom: "A&7" are you referring to "A7" that was on corner of Avenue A and East 7th Street, later turned in to King Tut's Wa Wa Hut???

(yep i remember Hurrah too . . . saw The Specials there, Suicide, a buncha others i cannot recall right now . . . )
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:17am churner:

how's king tuts wa wa hut?
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:25am slugluv1313:

the wa wa hut is no more -- for many many years -- some other bar there now, don't know the name
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:26am Randy in NC:

I specifically recall seeing Per Ubu, james White and the Blacks, the Raybeats w/Debbie Harry there. It's kinda where Punk intersected with disco. Come to think of it, I think I saw the Specials there too.
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:29am churner:

oh well
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:33am slugluv1313:

if i remember correctly, Hurrah may have been a disco before it became Hurrah??? . . . but yeah, it sure was SPACIOUS compared to Max's, CBGB, TR3, even the Mudd Club -- nice place to dance!

then a buncha other places sprang up, in NYC and NJ, converting from "disco" to "new wave" . . . i remember seeing X at a place called The 80s (somewhere uptown?)
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:35am churner:

the good ol days, huh

RON PAUL 2008
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:35am slugluv1313:

EFD, you are totally rocking to-night (just thought i should give proper recognition!)
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:37am efd:

thanks slugluv! i have to admit, i am loving this set (if i do say so myself)!
oh, and The 80s was on E. 86th, around 3rd Ave or so - not too far from Privates. I was in a band that played at The 80s once - we were on a bill with future hitmaker Desmond Child!
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:39am Randy in NC:

I went to the 80's too. A pain to get to when you lived in Brooklyn though.

Great show!!
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:39am punx:

Privates! Too punk!
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:39am churner:

go efd
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:45am Willard Scott's Bass Line:

great set Evan...youre the man

VOTE RON PAUL
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:46am Julie Bean:

  Tue. 1/15/08 1:47am churner:

go evan, go evan, go evan, go evan....uh
  Tue. 1/15/08 1:49am smurf:

Great show, making my night @work much better. Thanks.
  Tue. 1/15/08 2:05am efd:

Thanks smurf, churner, Julie, Willard, Randy and everyone else for your comments! Enjoy the rest of your night!
  Tue. 1/15/08 2:47am slugluv1313:

omigosh Desmond Child! with or without -- ROUGE?!?!

yikes, did not remember location of The 80s!!! i lived in New Brunswick (NJ) at the time! (yep even FURTHER away than Brooklyn!)
  Sun. 1/20/08 10:59am WoodShampoo:
