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.

Options December 31, 2014: SIX HOUR New Year's Eve Disco/Dance Party!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

For the first time in seven years it's a NEW YEAR'S EVE Disco/Dance Party! And this time it's an extra-special SIX HOUR show as I stick around after midnight and fill in for Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange!
As usual I'll be spinning some classic jams from the mid-'70s and early '80s, along with some of the lesser-known nuggets. It's the kind of show that makes you say "I haven't heard this in 35 years" and "why haven't I heard this before?!" Plus we'll have the always-popular Classic Rock Disco Block! And of course we'll count down to the new year in the Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones! It's the perfect soundtrack while traveling to or from your outing of choice -- or just stay in and listen all night!

=======================================
Disco/dance disclaimer! I'm keeping the lines blurry and using "disco" and "dance" as catch-all terms for my own take on fun dance music from the mid-70s to the early '80s, expanding the boundaries (and sound) of the traditional disco era. No griping, please!

@Oh dear, kids & I missed Devil's Gun because well, one does not fuck around when making peanut brittle or marshmallows. Firm believer that kids need to do 'scary' stuff alone , with appropriate knowledge & tools - but yeah, since not my kids I'm hovering.

Right now everything's cooling & kids like Sweet G .

@sluglove1313 - Yo! Atomic Dog indeed! ;-)
@efd rarely does requests because as a great, great dj he plans his sets, which I love to listen to & enjoy his vision... but every once in a while... we can hope! Push it also w/b nice. But that's less than unlikely.

Hey! @UM got his Donna!

I blame Giorgio Moroder for much of the 80's. Not that that's a bad thing.

I'd like to think cocaine shares some of the blame, but you're on to something.

Have sparklers for the kids but not sure I have a lighter! Oh, why did I stop smoking ;-0

@Holly keep your head down and your helmet and flackjacket on! And for god's sake don't go outside to have a cigarette when it's raining bullets out there!

I should have planned a 70's revival party around this whole soundscape Evan, but we're dancing our assess off here anyway.
Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/31/14 11:38pm Holly in NC:

@Danne - Very proudly have not had a cigarette in over 4 years, not even a puff. But I will never, ever ever fault or shame anyone who does still smoke - and I will always distrust people who've never smoked - they owe me a much greater burden of proof that they're interesting. I suspect both you & @efd never smoked, but you pass my interesting test nonetheless ;-)

yay Neil Cloud!

@efd, not dangerous where I'm at, this is "safe" gunfire. sigh ??!! I know. Not the time to discuss.

Greetings from 2015 (it's 3:30pm on January 1 here), and Happy New Year to everyone. At the risk of sounding trite, listening to EFD live on (my) Thursdays was one of the rare and consistent bright spots of a lousy 2014. Thanks for everything, Evan.
