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.
June 25, 2014: DAN EPSTEIN, author of Stars & Strikes: Baseball & America In The Bicentennial Summer Of '76, live in the studio!
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
In Dan Epstein's previous book, Big Hair and Plastic Grass, we learned how the '70s changed baseball forever. His latest book, Stars and Strikes: Baseball and America in the Bicentennial Summer of '76, focuses on the year that brought us the Chicago White Sox wearing shorts, C.W. McCall's "Convoy," the California Angels hiring their DH from Casablanca Records, Frampton Comes Alive, Mark "The Bird" Fidrych's brilliant rookie year, the Ramones and so much more.
