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.

Hola efd and everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/19 9:19pm efd:

@theLuke I'll let you in on a secret: Clay does all that production on those segments, but he had some computer woes this week so he had to run it straight! Hopefully all will be back to normal next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/19 9:20pm efd:

and a big good evening to all commenters and lurkers! I am back in the spacious confines of Studio A and loving life!!

Studio A hasn’t been farted up too bad yet? Still has that new studio smell I hope.

A mongrel is a hard-on in aussie slang, so band name is funny. Is good.

Surprised that mongrel couldn't get past the censors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/19 10:43pm efd:

I answer to my own censor.
  Wed. 8/7/19 10:47pm Carmichael:

My wife is an EJ fanatic. And she hated this whole album .. Guess I won’t tell here my favorite station is playing her artist.
  Wed. 8/7/19 10:49pm Bob:

the anemic boy friends had another song Boys are not proud. great show Bob from poughkeepsie
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/19 10:53pm efd:

@Bob we will likely hear that song next week, assuming the censors give their OK. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/7/19 10:53pm efd:

lol Carmichael!
  Wed. 8/7/19 11:26pm P-90:

Great show. Been a quiet night, here in middle America, but I’m here. Watching. Waiting. Not being creepy at all. Trust me.

I'll just say that making me care about Woodstock again after decades of indifference is no mean feat.
