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.

Go Bruins?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:08pm efd:

Welcome everyone! Thanks for tuning in... hope you enjoy the fruits of my Kansas City (MO) record store shopping!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:08pm efd:

@Ken FHP sure, I'll allow it. (I only have a strong rooting interest in baseball, but I was a Bruins fan as a kid)

reporting in from the KC Suburbs to say that it rained a little bit this afternoon and will rain some more this weekend
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:21pm CJ@Shawnee OH:

Do any of you guys use distilled water/alcohol. Apply to album then use one of those felt/terry cloth record cleaners like from Radio Shack to take the static out of the record? I used to do that when I played vinyl when I was making mix cassette tapes. Just wondering?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:21pm efd:

hi BH! We somehow managed to avoid the rain entirely in KC last week! I think it rained some overnight, but never when we were out and about.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/19 9:22pm RobinSays:

Ava Cherry! Excellent choice Evan. An amazing vocalist. i was always impressed that David Bowie fancied her. DOesn't she sing backup on "Panic In Detroit?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:25pm CJ@Shawnee OH:

Reminds me a bit like Pat Travers
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:27pm efd:

@RobinSays not positive, but I believe so
Avatar Wed. 6/12/19 9:27pm RobinSays:

Am I hallucinating or does this Dr. John song steal a riff from Kraftwerk?
Avatar Wed. 6/12/19 9:33pm JakeGould:

This rips off more than a few hip hop and dance sound tropes from back in the day. Even a bit of “The Breaks” in it.
  Wed. 6/12/19 9:39pm BH:

Royals games, as in multiple ones? I'm on a half-season ticket plan and the trip i'll be taking tomorrow to Omaha will be a little longer than usual because of that whole "Interstate highway is closed due to flooding" thing

Heyo!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:53pm medson:

KC is definitely a place I'd like to go watch some baseball
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 9:57pm efd:

it's a beautiful park!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 6/12/19 9:58pm Uncle Michael:

  Wed. 6/12/19 10:01pm dlee:

Flamin Ohs were one of the best live bands in Mpls at the time of Prince the Replacements the Suicide Commandos, Husker Du, Suburbs, etc. That was great fun to hear!
  Wed. 6/12/19 10:06pm dlee:

You are correct sir- they were Flamingo

My tribute band would play everything just exactly perfectly and absolutely the same every time. It would be called OC/DC

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 6/12/19 10:53pm Uncle Michael:

I fear I reminded you.
  Wed. 6/12/19 10:53pm steveL:

...although the Modu Moctar tif reminds me of Simple Kind of Man.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/12/19 10:54pm efd:

@UM I deliberately didn't say anything so as not to ruin the surprise, but this would have happened regardless.

Journey. Are you trying to give me nightmares of high school parties?
  Wed. 6/12/19 11:03pm steveL:

Aw, Wednesday. If I were anywhere nearby, I’d go. Might visit DC in September to intercept a date there.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/19 11:04pm medow:
