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.

Thanks Clinton, and greetings to you and all listeners/commenters/lurkers! Nice to have you non-hockey fans here tonight.

Great music tonight, thank you for putting me in a good mood.

My pleasure Paul, I'm glad that I did so!

Anna F, not sure if we'll make it to Cal Pep but we will definitely be taking advantage of the local cuisine as much as possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/20/15 10:21pm JakeGould:

So what’s up with your bed/break music? Seems different tonight.

Hi Evan and all. Lurking as usual these days but I had to chime in to second Jake's question about your bed music. What gives?
  Wed. 5/20/15 10:42pm cheri:

Uh-oh. Someone made a mistake with the bed CD-R!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/20/15 10:47pm JakeGould:

Evan, if you play a slightly different music bed you should wear an Evil Spock beard.

Send your camel to bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/20/15 11:10pm Stevel:

You need a break. perhaps a week in sunny Spain.
  Wed. 5/20/15 11:12pm KP:

Jake, the camel says he's just getting started

Better late than never.

Is this Where the Action Is?

Solid Gold will always mean dancers in gold lame pants to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/20/15 11:38pm efd:

Stevel, I think a week in sunny Spain is EXACTLY what I need. Good thinking!

Chop Scott, yes, see you there!

Welcome, Alex, and hello to everyone else who's checked in. Pretty ragged show tonight, thanks for sticking with it!

it's prob. an illusion
but the new bed
seems to qualify for
having more can./con.

A charmingly stuttered show tonight. We like you with all your flaws but hey… Next time, right?
  Wed. 5/20/15 11:50pm Eddy in Australia:

@EFD: Is someone already in vacation mode?!
  Wed. 5/20/15 11:52pm johnk77:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/20/15 11:52pm efd:

I know this sounds silly, but really think it's the new music bed that's been throwing me off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/20/15 11:54pm JakeGould:

@efd: The beats on the bed are disconcertingly off if you are a regular listener. So hey. All good.
  Wed. 5/20/15 11:55pm Eddy in Australia:

Yep, another great show. Have fun in Spain. Check out Quimet & Quimet in Barcelona, and there are some good bombas to be had in the backstreet bars of Barceloneta.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/20/15 11:58pm efd:
