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.

Whatever that mandingo record was, David Byrne has just spent the last 30 years remaking it and probably owes someone lunch.

efd, any chance you can play something from the new Beaches album (She Beats). The one track on Pitchfork and the samples on I heard on Amazon sounded really good.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm efd:

Definitely inspired by Amanda playing the Gashounds last week, at least in part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Uncle Michael:

Felice and Boudleaux Bryant may have been writing proto-power pop before Buddy.

The ticket giveaway segment intro is roughly the length of a midperiod Yes track :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm G:

that's called tooting your own social media's horn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Uncle Michael:

It is. But they'd been writing and publishing songs...and charting for a decade by them. I'm no expert but it's not a stretch to imagine that Bye By Love may not have been their forst offering in that vein.
  10:53pm Holly in NC:

Thanks for Paul Messis, efd
Avatar 10:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- interesting line of inquiry, UM (to me anyhow)...
- the Paul Messis had to wait until The Who tho', I wager!

Thank you Evan. New OMD - OMG!! Great show, helps me prep for the summer University course I teach here in TORONTO. The T.dot

Hey Evan. Hope you're alright....It's been a bit rough here in D/FW tonight. =(
Avatar 11:11pm Droll:

G, I didn't time the ticket giveaway bumper, but I'm positive Yes plays single riffs that are longer than that. Certainly Yes wouldn't be able to repeat rhythmic pattern in that little time.

Qunicy Jones tix?!?! I'm half tempted to come to NYC just for that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm G:

conspiracy theorists claim there is a midnight ticket quota :)

DMandl recently wrote an article about bands re-recording their earlier hits, something he's not keen on. I would have agreed, except there's the one notable exception of the Albini recorded In Color, which surpasses the original by every metric.
