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.

Nice. Being the general X'er that I is = I swear the other day I was wondering amidst this fun political climate we are forced to live In when someone would spin the anthem: Burma - Revolver. Nice. Nice. Triple nice.

Seems quite a few of WFMU listeners are relatively senior. Not dead yet though, still doing it, still listening to all and sundry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 9:58pm Alex of Chicago:

not dead yet happens to be my motive

Just give it a whirl mate

Late kudos to the DJ for the “Siouxsie and the Banshees!” That one track always sounds so perfectly 1980s to me. Thanks!

Nicely retorted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Wow, the Dream Syndicate song is superb. I wonder if any mainstream station dare play it. Or it'll hang out on the fringes like WFMU.

Oh, nice! Autumn leaves must fall, indeed. Hi Evan! Hi Ben London!
  Wed. 12/6/17 10:13pm Ben London:

Alex- There's a little bit... I'd suggest eating at the 13 Coins while you're here. It closes on new year's day for good at the original location.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 10:14pm Alex of Chicago:

thanks for the tip.

  Wed. 12/6/17 11:30pm Ben London:

Sounds like the same organ player from the Boston albums.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:31pm Julie M:

I like this set. I thought I was wrapping it up for the night, but it would be rude to walk away from the celebration...
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:33pm Stevel:

Great show. Worked late enough to hear the start. Now home and increasingly horizontal.
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:34pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Nervus Rex--and the 7 inch mix no less!
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:35pm Stevel:

You've captured a very odd pop vibe in this set. Not exactly sure what it is, but not troubled by my lack of understanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:36pm efd:

@MftLC yeah, I just picked this up recently! Was happy to find the single to supplement the LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:36pm efd:

  Wed. 12/6/17 11:37pm Michael from the Left Coast:

the single is way better than the LP on this
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:37pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--you do know Lauren is doing a Washington Squares at City Winery sometime soon
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:43pm Michael from the Left Coast:
