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.

This Rockicks track is super righteous, and I appreciate that they gave the drummer some in the middle of the rockin' and rollin'.
  Wed. 4/22/15 9:06pm V Priceless:

Hey Evan! Rocketh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:09pm Stevel:

Now interested in The Reds.

In 30+ years, I have NEVER heard this on the radio, except on the show I used to do on KTRU-FM in Houston in the '80s. THANK YOU. EVAN!
Avatar Wed. 4/22/15 9:11pm Loretta:

hi everyone! I really enjoyed the Rockicks, I don't think I remember them...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:16pm efd:

hi everyone, glad you all dug that Rockicks tune!

And you're welcome, mystery Reds fan who lived in Houston at one time!
  Wed. 4/22/15 9:25pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Love this Wanderers track.
Avatar Wed. 4/22/15 9:25pm j_no-NYC:

No longer mystery fan. I'm a pledger to your show, but apparently new creds & registration were required. I love that Reds album. I lost track of them through the years though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:26pm efd:

It's been a fave of mine since the first time I heard it.
Avatar Wed. 4/22/15 9:26pm j_no-NYC:

RED VINYL, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:27pm efd:

nice, glad you enjoyed it and thanks for re-registering!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:29pm efd:

Weirdly my copy of the Reds s/t album ins on GREEN vinyl. The 10" I just played is regular black, but based on the cover I think there must have been a green pressing of that also.
Avatar Wed. 4/22/15 9:32pm j_no-NYC:

Yes, a former bandmate of mine, who also worked in a record store, had the green vinyl version. Kind of translucent green, if I recall.

  Wed. 4/22/15 9:40pm john:

I had that Wanderers elpee a million years ago. One of the records I'm still most peevish about having been lifted by someone somewhere along the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:48pm efd:

I don't even remember the other songs on the album off the top of my head because "Ready To Snap" is so great.
