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.

And Loretta, with your gorgeous beast...but nothing against rabbits & dolphins, of course!

Aw, ty Holly. So's yours!

New Jacco? Happy me.
Avatar 9:10pm Callieflower:

:) And she's currently asleep in a warm little kitty igloo that I bought for her today. It's an even cuter face while sleeping!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Santos L Halper:

@fleepI bet a mayfly is more focused on that one day of life than i've ever been. Can't say i blame 'em. Don't have to remind them to carpe diem
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Mike East:

nice, made it in time for jacco gardner. I was just wondering the other day when he was going to come out with something new. sounds great.
Avatar 9:12pm steve:

hey all. wow, that instrumental was super duper
  9:13pm Trouble In Mind:

The Jacco single's been out since September ya'll! Still available at the TiM site!
Avatar 9:13pm Holly in NC:

Clicky star You, as well.
Hi Steve!
Avatar 9:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- is Jacco self-produced ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Mike East:

but when's he coming out with something new, Trouble In Mind? I'm talking full length!
Avatar 9:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it is seriously an alley full of cats here...
Avatar 9:16pm BadGuyZero:

Avatar 9:18pm Holly in NC:

@Trouble in Mind, whoops! I am so behind in reading distro & store updates, not to mention laxness in keeping up w. twitter, mea culpa.
  9:18pm Trouble In Mind:

yep RevRabbit, Jacco is self-produced & Mike East, he just got off a pretty brutal tour schedule so I think he's hunkering down now & writing...
  9:18pm Trouble In Mind:

WHEN it will be out is another story...

Yea Trouble in Mind!

Good evening. Time for the dirty-kitchen dance party. Oh yeah, baby.
Avatar 9:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- indeed! Thx ! ...it seems that people who get a really distinctive sound often are self-produced...
Avatar 9:21pm Callieflower:

Wow, it's like I'm at a business meeting while in my pajamas! It's a dream come true! :)
Avatar 9:27pm Holly in NC:

This La Luz song is my fave on the lp, by far. The mood reminds of me of "Dreams Come True" by Cass McCombs/Karen Black from a few years ago, had a cool video treatment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Mike East:

jokes like that are why I tune in, Evan.
Avatar 9:33pm Callieflower:

I said out loud, "Oh no, Evan," after that joke. Thank you for immediately berating yourself for it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Mike East:

I'm not really a cat person, though I did marry a tiger.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Uncle Michael:

I'm in love with Pile Of Dirt.

I've been meaning to play it for weeks now! So mad it's taken this long.
Avatar 9:47pm Loretta:

Pile of Dirt rocks!

Avatar 11:06pm Holly in NC:

I should mention that Kelsey dog is missing an eye, recently lost to cancer (she's doing fine) & Baci dog is thankfully complelely recovered from her broken ankle... broken when I, last summer, didn't the disarm their house alarm in a timely manner & in the ensuing LOUD noise & panic poor Baci knocked over a baby gate & somehow twisted a leg all up. Brave girl totally masked 'til next day, too.

@Stevel - I coulda used a guy to run the freight elevator just now.
