Back on the air!
For one magical Monday afternoon, Chuck and Joel returned to Radio K airwaves with a special Powersurge Cosmic Slop Reunion Show! Monday, October 6, from 3pm to 6pm, Cosmic Slop played crazy old music, talked your ears off...and raised a pile of money on behalf of 770 Radio K. If you missed it at the time, or if you want to listen again, you can find a recording of the show here!
Who we are (were):
Until we retired at the end of 2004, Cosmic Slop was a weekly radio feature dedicated to resurrecting the best and the worst pop music of the 1970s, along with occasional gems from the 60s and 80s. Hosts Joel Stitzel and Chuck Tomlinson played tons of vintage popular music from outside the mainstream of what might be considered an "oldies program".

These days, we're channeling that Slop energy into putting together a regular series of podcasts. We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoy recording them!
What we're about:
Any idiot can (and often does!) play a couple of Abba and Eagles songs and call it a "Seventies Show." To that we said, "Baloney!" Cosmic Slop played the hits and the misses--from the United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe! No other show on earth, to our knowledge, has had the depth and breadth of Cosmic Slop's music library.
Have You Never Been Mellow?
For a little over a year, Club 14 KLBB (1400 and 1470 AM) gave Chuck and Joel free rein over their airwaves from 9 to 11 on Saturday nights, then 8 to 10 on Sunday nights. The resulting show, Have You Never Been Mellow, With Chuck and Joel, reinvented "easy listening" radio for a new generation. It was ahead of its time in anticipating the rock-based adult contemporary format. Unfortunately, it's no longer on the air, but you can relive the memories (or save tens of thousands of dollars in station consulting fees) with the complete set of playlists.

Holy cow! Thanks to the tireless efforts of Ron "Boogiemonster" Gerber, half of the shows are now available to stream or download. Sweet Jesus, that's smooth!
