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.

As a perimenopausal woman, my whole life is lived in a state of p.m.t.
Also, what a weird song ;-)

@Steve1 - Don't ask. Really. This is my break from reality!

I completely support reality breaks. This show has served that purpose many, many times.

Ooh, post the Fortune album cover! Its cocaine-alicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm efd:

no time to post the cover image, but here's the tweet that has it: twitter.com...
  Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Jake Gould , I had a t-shirt depicting that watch that I wore in 5th & 6th grade. My 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Forgus, sent a note to my parents saying I should be respectful and wear "button down shirts with collars".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Stevel:

efd: Your next task is to track down the disco mixes of Fortune's tracks. You KNOW they're out there.

The longer I look at that cover, the scarier it gets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Uncle Michael:

My chest hair needs blow drying.
  9:35pm JakeGould:

@LonelyPlanetBoy, "button down shirts with collars" agh, the 1970s! I had a friend who got crap in elementary school for wearing a “Hear Comes the Judge!” sweatshirt.

Its the women's eyes. Their eyes. Not to mention the gritted teeth.
  9:41pm JakeGould:

Also, the cocaine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Stevel:

Always the cocaine. They had a song called "Saddle in the Wind." I shudder to think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Stevel:

Does Dave the Spazz have the Agnew album for samples?
  9:44pm herb.nyc:

Agnew- "examples of VP TWIT"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Stevel:

Pretty sure Snopek was from Milwaukee. Played every other week in Madison in the early 80s.
  Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Lonely Planet Boy:

JG, I thought the "Judge" 45" was on the Gordy label. But It was on the Soul label, also purple.
  9:46pm john:

Beaky's gonna be pissed.
  9:47pm john:

Beaky called. Says "THANK you."

I revisited “Here Comes the Judge” a few years back. I am deeply embarrassed at what entertained me as an elementary school student.

Good news guys -- just signed Christopher Walken to play Ben Orr in my soon-to-be-released biography about The Cars:

"Let's Go!"

See ya at the Palm D'Or!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm efd:

haha, I'm only a little disappointed because I thought you were going to say you signed him to make a Co*Star record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Fuzzy:

Maybe if I throw in a gold watch -- he might go for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Fuzzy:

Naw, for reals: I was just jamming on some old Midnight Special Cars videos on the Youtube, and Walken could totally pull it off!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm pacific standard simon:

You're hired as my personal cook when I get rich, Holly (I can't cook EVERY night!) Just had pesto and noodles tonight, but tomorrow I'm cooking lamb steaks and carrots glazed with orange and ginger.

So glad Omnivore's reissuing GT.

Thanks for playing GT efd, and thanks to Holly for the tip a few weeks ago. It's a really nice release, and the rest will of course be even better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm pacific standard simon:

Owsley is one of my heroes, despite his stupid ideas about diet, which have much in common with those of Hasil Adkins.
Avatar 11:44pm daveB from Oakland:

Owsley and Adkins could've been a great collaboration (Is the Adkins diet anything like the Atkins diet? ... don't mind me, I'm just free-associating).
