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 8, 2010: THE SIGHTS live set!

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Detroit's Sights return for their fifth appearance on WFMU, following the release of their great new album Most of What Follows Is True (Alive). Frontman Eddie Baranek says he's trying to marry the two worlds of the Oblivians and the Beatles, and the result is powerful songs with hooks and harmonies aplenty. Listen now, or forever hold your peace!
