Show 227: AM Mold – Playlist and Archived Stream

listenup227.jpg

70’s AM Mold!  It will be dippily cheerful and potentially maudlin. Potential sounds include: rock, bubblegum and mellow pop, soul, post-psychedelic pop, country-rock and euro-pop, glam, folk-rock, funky disco and even some concise and catchy, hard rock. Nothing but songs from the 70’s that were released on small records with big holes. Some hits and some not so hits…but they all were issued as singles.

Warning: Cringeworthy potential is high.
