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.

Hi @Rocky Horror, @efd, and all funky funks out there tonight. It's great to be here for another Wednesday night.

Brian Ferry. Good lord, what a talent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 9:10pm efd:

He knows a thing or two about a thing or two
  Wed. 9/19/18 9:13pm steveL:

From the wiki: 3] Peter York described Ferry as "an art object" who "should hang in the Tate".[4]

Is that a compliment? I mean, British dry sense of humor, and all.

oh shoot, I hadn't heard that yet myself!

Did you play Lysol, last week? Someone did, and I followed them on Bandcamp. Social media EXTRA!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 9:47pm medson:

Hey efd. Spinning those 45's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 9:53pm efd:

@steveL I played them a few weeks ago, but there are a lot of initials on the front so you may well have heard it on someone else's show last week.

Hey medson! The rare irl/comments page combo appearance!

yeah I was kind of annoyed when I saw Nate was having them on over the summer because I was going to go after them! :D

Why did the Scientists show get cancelled?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:04pm chris_in_space:

Loving the no agenda, no pressure vibe of tonight's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:06pm Aitch:

Scientists would be really old. Many of their contemporaries dying lately. Nice to hear Bon Scott AC/DC speaking of which.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:08pm Scraps:

h’lo hm

hiya Scraps! Long time no see.

@jmd no idea, I just found out myself
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:10pm medson:

@aitch ya think people in their 60's is really old?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:11pm chris_in_space:

@medson, a resounding no over here to 60-something as old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:12pm jmd:

This jam is right up there with Devastator!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:13pm Scraps:

@efd, I know. I’m on an earlier self-imposed schedule and I’m trying to stick with it, so you might see me more regularly. Though sometimes my pain makes me lie down and not comment (still listen, though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:13pm efd:

it's about 4 minutes too short!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:13pm Aitch:

I first saw them in 1983 and they were all pretty wasted even then. The were supporting The Birthday Party, I reckon long term survival of most of the crowd there that night was marginal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:13pm Chop Scott:

Evan! Thanks for the proper Bon Scott infusion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:19pm Scraps:

Total Rejection is still not on RateYourMusic, which means very obscure (on Discogs, though, but they are not as good as RYM for where the band is from)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:21pm Scraps:

Yay Yachts!

This was a helluva good album

I was so psyched when I heard this collection was coming out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:23pm Phillippe Bastille:

This, Jonah Lewie, the first Corgis album, and something from Shoes were on regular rotation in Casa Bastille
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:24pm Scraps:

I don’t have =Without Radar=, so I will get that 3cd set.... eventually
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:25pm Phillippe Bastille:

@EFD want a good deal on the original vinyl lol?
Avatar Wed. 9/19/18 10:25pm Rocky Horror:

The Yachts go Yatzzee!!!

No need, @Phillippe! :)

Faster, master!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:36pm Phillippe Bastille:

@efd when I was in college about 4 decades ago, I had several very part time jobs. One paid for gas and an occasional date, another paid for alcohol, and the third paid for records. And yes, I actually parsed the money that way. The record money was almost always well spent, because I knew a guy who had a used record shop (think High Fidelity) who would set stuff aside for me because he knew I'd be there with cash every Saturday around noon. Usually an album or 2 or 3, depending on what he wanted for them. It was glorious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:38pm efd:

Perfect setup, Phillippe! I was in college around the same time and on the radio there, which gave me access to (though not always ownership of) lots of great stuff.
Avatar Wed. 9/19/18 10:41pm spacecowboy:

@phillipe the perfect lifestyle
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:45pm Phillippe Bastille:

Yep. I tried to go the @EFD route and auditioned for WMUC at U of MD, but they told me that although I had the perfect face for radio, I had the perfect poise for the busboy at Tippy's Taco House (I'm paraphrasing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:50pm efd:

ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:52pm Scraps:

In the early 80s my best friend and I had a shift at KCMU in Seattle, and I worked at a record store, which meant basically I was constantly broke on records
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:56pm efd:

oh boy, that's a tough combo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:57pm Phillippe Bastille:

flirts = clicky star
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:57pm medson:

I bought this album at a JC record riot a couple years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:58pm Bootsie:

Ahhhhhh! The Flirts! And I just bought the Valley Girl DVD
  Wed. 9/19/18 10:59pm katharsis:

@scraps I'm simultaneously envious and, well, just envious I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:59pm Scraps:

“Jukebox” has a weird chord progression
  Wed. 9/19/18 10:59pm steveL:

You're hitting a lot of great notes, tonight! Real live radio!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 10:59pm Bootsie:

I met one of the gals from the band, too. She's a member at the gym where I work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 11:02pm Scraps:

@Phillippe: I threw it away very soon. Didn’t know how good I had it. Anyway, I moved to New York.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 11:02pm Phillippe Bastille:

@bootsie and is there a "and..." in there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 11:04pm Phillippe Bastille:

@scraps we all do. Juggling a mortgage, a kid in college and another who won't leave home, and the choice comes down to the $10 18 pack of Rolling Rock vs the $11 18 pack of Natural Light. Forget about buying new music...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/19/18 11:05pm medson:

Great show efd. The day has finally caught up to me.
Catch you next week

In other news, my auto fill supplies "asshole" but not "ass". Go figure.
