Part 2 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we discuss a pair of 1970s hitmakers. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Little Big League, Soft Focus, Idiot Genes and Wavves.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree"

- Tony Orlando and Dawn got their own variety show

- Telma Hopkins of Dawn went on to appear in several sitcoms

- Renewed popularity during Gulf War

- Actually about coming home from prison

- Was "Knock Three Times" a swingers' anthem?

- By the late '70s, Tony Orlando was forgotten

- "He Don't Love You" was another big hit

- In praise of KC and the Sunshine Band

- Tales of KC's pratfall in Vegas

- "Please Don't Go" was a major hit for KC

- "I'm Your Boogie Man" was funky, great stuff

- Learning about music as a kid in the '70s

- Young Ric saw the Sex Pistols on Howard Cosell's "Saturday Night Live"

- Good bands played on "Fridays" on ABC

- Dick Clark was a brilliant businessman, not necessarily a music lover

- Check out episode 54 of More Lost Time, remembering Charlie Chesterman

- Coming soon: Ric and Jay's video show Trust Fund Challenge

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:

Little Big League - Lindsey

Soft Focus - Runner Up

Idiot Genes - Regular

Wavves - Horse Shoes
