Allen Toussaint

Allen Toussaint undeniably shaped the sound of New Orleans... and the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s at large. A Toussaint song may even be one of your favorites and you didn't even know it. Think "Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley", "Brickyard Blues", "Fortune Teller", and the classic "Lady Marmalade". Toussaint disciples include The Band, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Palmer, Elvis Costello, and so many more. Lex and Dave take their best crack at covering the career of the legendary pianist-performer-producer, but without a doubt, they left something out. Let 'em have it through all the links below!

Fanny

If you haven't heard of Fanny, you're not the only one. Rising stars in the early '70s, they got lost in the format changes of the '80s. But streaming services have helped resurface this influential, female-driven rock act that forged the way for bands like The Runaways and The Go-Gos. Join Lex and Dave as they play 6 Degrees Of Fanny, counting off all the big names that crossed paths with these accomplished musicians.

The Beach Boys 1970-80

Broken up with Capitol Records and fraught with personal problems, The Beach Boys must begin again in 1970 -- not as boys but as men. And it's a rocky mountain to climb. Lex and Dave navigate all the musical experimentation, the drug use, the in-fighting, the celebrity tangents, and the absurdity that define one of the biggest names in pop history during their toughest decade.

Roxy Music

1970 marked the arrival of the true future of rock. Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Andy Mackay, Paul Thompson, and Graham Simpson didn't just turn the sound of the '70s on its head, future lineups would cut a path for the most influential bands of the '80s to follow. Lex and Dave talk Ferry's bottomless sadness, Eno's raging libido, and Mackay's love of kittens in this sprawling ep on the totally original, totally moody Roxy Music.

Paul McCartney 1970-1990

It’s 1970, and the Beatles are no more. In fact, they hate each other. Correction... they hate Paul. And all anyone wants to know is, “What’s next?” Lex and Dave follow Paul’s path through the ‘70s and ‘80s as he tries to sort who he is after being the most famous bass slappin’ heartthrob in the world. Buckle up for life on the road with Linda, Wings, weed, and a whole lotta koala-cuddles. We’re gonna get hi, hi, hi!
