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.

Hey EFD, what a great start to your show tonight ! Feels like 1977 all over again ! What do you think of Cerrone ? I just picked up his 'Love in C Minor' album this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 9:06pm efd:

oh I'm a big Cerrone fan!

Me too, EFD ! I only own the 'Supernature' and now Love in C Minor recent reissue CD's.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 9:33pm G:

Don't hassle the DJ or he'll play an entire set of the Renegades' version of "13 Women."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/15/19 9:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Swiss, cool! I saw Krokus in concert years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 9:41pm efd:

ha! the only Swiss band I could think of when they were here was Kleenex, forgot about Krokus.

Probably for the better.
  Wed. 5/15/19 9:48pm Adam West Coaster:

Young Gods, also a good go-to from Switzerland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 9:53pm efd:

This set is mixed so well. Kudos to whoever engineered it EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 10:03pm efd:

It was a joint effort between our own Mario Santana and the band's engineer Kusi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 10:03pm efd:

@Bootsie Soft Cell is a good comp!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/15/19 10:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Steve I'm not sure I've heard them
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 5/15/19 11:03pm Roberto:

I have a friend who is acquainted with Peter Holsapple because he's neighbors with her brother. She mentioned it to me like it was no big deal and I was all, WHOA! Do you have any idea how great he is?
  Wed. 5/15/19 11:05pm Steve:

EFD, here's a link to Telephone: https://www.discogs.com/artist/988032-Telephone

  Wed. 5/15/19 11:22pm steveL:

This Modu Moctar is so cool. It has a riff that Lynyryd Skynyryd would have killed for

Greetings The Night
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 11:24pm efd:

hi Aunt L and SteveL! Yeah, the riff in this Mdou Moctar song is something else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 11:25pm efd:

although I have to admit I'm sorely tempted to play "Wheel In The Sky" by Journey after it one of these days and blow everyone's minds! :D
