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.

@stevel AGD killed it at Monty Hall a few weeks ago. Amazing show
  9:49pm Stevel:

Medson: Sure! Rub it in! I recently missed Nots. Wednesday nights suck for old people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm medson:

  9:57pm Stevel:

I blame young people for their overly-high expectations and energy levels. Punks.

Nice to hear the familiar voice of Barry Ryan here. I mostly know him for Eloise... Susan is awesome, too. Also enjoyed the previous string of tracks since tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm medson:

Losing so many talented musicians way to soon.
  10:15pm Luisa:

Thank you for just turning me onto Kacy & Clayton! What I have been searching for!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm medson:

Sad to hear about Jessi from Those Darlins as well
  10:17pm Julie M:

@Medson: But we do have their music for as long and as often as we want to hear it. That's the beauty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm efd:

@medson I know, it's been a tough couple of weeks.
@Luisa, happy to do so! Thanks for letting me know.

@motobro I'll be there bright and early. I don't need much sleep haha
  10:33pm Motobro:

I know, sleep is over rated. There will be plenty of time for that when we lay our heads down for that final dirt nap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm medson:

Reminded me of Eminence Front at first
Avatar 10:59pm Roberto:

Yes, Dirty Front. Eminence Laundry?

I never noticed that on the eagles version. I have to give a listen
  11:05pm Stevel:

Sheila B is yet another amazing WFMU dj.

(Autocorrect changed "dj" to "she". It's hip.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm medson:

wasn't he The Morning Mayor?
  11:11pm Stevel:

Harry Harrison!! HHDYDTY!
  11:11pm JakeGould:

Sheila B is the one DJ I always recommend to friends and they always thank me for that. But let’s face it… She’s now Harry Harrison! Now this guy… He makes A.M. radios melt with that voice.
  11:12pm JakeGould:

I meant, “She’s NO Harry Harrison!” I hope she has not turned into Harry Harrison.
  11:12pm Stevel:

Did say the Army can't recognize if you're a man or a woman? Hmmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm joe:
