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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Mark Hudson has worked w/ Ringo a lot.
Avatar 9:39pm JakeGould:

All I remember about “The Hudson Brothers” is how to me—child of immigrants—would look at them as extremely white and a American.
