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.

I like the fact I am listening to “Season of the Witch” while doing taxes.

Thanks for playing Duncan Browne. He had a lot of really good songs, most of the ones on GIVE ME TAKE YOU and also the first METRO record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 9:33pm efd:

originally by Donovan, JakeG, if you're referring to "Season Of The Witch."

Got confused when I heard Jonathan Kane, I thought it was Ken's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 9:34pm melinda:

Dang, I don't know how that posted twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 9:34pm efd:

I checked to make sure he didn't play this earlier, Kat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 9:35pm JakeGould:

@efd: Actually, I was referring to this Jonathan Kane track. They are both covers. And I’m in that “tax prep” haze that just… Yeah… Good stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 9:35pm efd:

It's just that good, melinda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 9:36pm efd:

oh whoops, never mind! Three covers in the opening set, weirdly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 9:36pm efd:

Will, my pleasure to play Duncan Browne. That song has been a longtime fave.

Thanks for remembering Evan :)

@Mailman I added the Jonathan Kane album to my Discogs wantlist. Surprised it wasn't already in there.
Avatar Wed. 3/23/16 10:08pm chris_in_space:

No way... this is the one tune from Love Beach that silences the haters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:09pm Kat in Chicago:

I don't remember Love Beach at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:09pm Stevel:

Did they actually have a hit with this song?

I was a huge ELP fan. So big that I am amazed at how big of a punk/new-wave fan I became, but hey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:09pm efd:

it's true, chris! I'm living proof!
Avatar Wed. 3/23/16 10:10pm chris_in_space:

@efd ha. Cool that you're playing it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Brain Salad Surgery' album, 1973 for me - in a very very big way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 10:12pm JakeGould:

@EFD: You have excellent taste in tunes others would discount as just cheese or novelty. Kudos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:12pm efd:

@Stevel, I'll leave that question as an exercise for the reader/listener.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:13pm efd:

Thanks Jake!
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:13pm Danne D:

must guiltily admit that is the first time I've heard it. As a big ELP fan I must say I consciously avoided it. Not as bad as I feared :)
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:15pm John:

Whoa. New Doug Tuttle elpee? Where the heck have I been?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 10:17pm JakeGould:

@DanneD: If this means anything to you, I work near Barclays Center and there’s an Islanders game tonight so I hate to trudge through the crowds to get home. One guy said, “Who the fuck are they playing tonight? The Devils?” Response, “No…” to which the guy retorted, “Good, I hate the fucking Devils.”
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:17pm P-90:

I remember laughing with my teenage friends (all already confirmed prog fans) at how overboard the slamming of "Love Beach" was when it first appeared
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:17pm efd:

I dunno, John! But I'm glad you're here now - you and Danne posting back to back reminded me that I need to recruit a new player for the efd fantasy baseball league!
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:18pm John:

I noticed that! And my gosh, that could be record of the year territory.
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:30pm Danne D:

LOL @Jake - nope
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:31pm Danne D:

@EFD and set a draft date :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 10:32pm JakeGould:

@DanneD: To be honest, the Islanders really stink.
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:33pm John:

I do have a friend who might be interested, I've played in leagues with him before.
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:34pm Danne D:

Woooo Harry!
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:34pm P-90:

Oh, how I love Harry
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 10:35pm JakeGould:

God that voice… What was it like to make love to Harry Harrison?

I'm having the Baja Marimba version of deja vu.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 10:37pm JakeGould:

To be honest… Harry Harrison is the opposite of sex. I can’t stop listening but it’s like lidocaine on my soul.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/23/16 10:37pm efd:

this version could use a few yippie-kay-ays

Am I the only one who thinks back to his waterproof shower wall-mounted radio whenever he hears Harry Harrison's voice? Yeah, thought so...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/23/16 10:53pm JakeGould:

@MikeSin: I think of leaky EverReady batteries with that cat on them. Silver ones. And bent springs in the battery compartment.

In case nobody else noticed, this set is kicking ass.
  Wed. 3/23/16 10:55pm Cubicle Carl:

Ha, I think of myself as 6yr. old pulling on my tidy whities and getting ready for school.

The human population will always be divided into two groups: those who grew up with Harry Harrison and those who did not share that distinct pleasure.

Wow, Younghusband have channeled something very unique in this track.
  Wed. 3/23/16 11:26pm P-90:

Have you noticed how much "King of the Hill"s Hank Hill resembles Dave Berg's "Lighter Side" surrogate self, and the whole comedic tone and visual style of that show is influenced by Berg?
