How Radio Was Done Part 23

November 30, 2006
Solo

A five-hour edition. Beginning with a flashback into the development of Motown and Soul radio, not to mention Malcolm X, through ’66, we then lurch into 1967 from Radio Caroline where they’re first to play /”A Whiter Shade of Pale/” and confront the government with /”illegal/” broadcasting. The Beatles produce “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” San Francisco’s first underground station, KMPX, reaches the air with Edward Bear and Tom Donahue as the San Francisco bands emerge, Dylan refuses to give his autograph, McLuhan’s LP, drugs everywhere, and lots of ’67 DJs and songs.

Our roaming radio is stuck in 1966. Bob Dylan brings electricity to England and holds a press conference in San Francisco, The Beatles on tour continue to exhaust everyone, Bobby Kennedy sings his greatest hit, And hot jocks of the year, who all talk rapidly, lurch toward their next Thanksgiving turkey shoot. Also playing on this radio, The Rolling Stones, Them, The Hollies, The Dave Clark Five, Peter and Gordon, etc.

Slowing to a snails pace as the relevant material increases, we remain inside 1966 once again where the Beatles are still more popular than Jesus, their studio music becoming more complicated as their desire to play live diminishes. Meanwhile, Scott Muni holds forth at WOR, radio comes to Vietnam, Neil Cassidy drives, Ken Keasey begins the San Francisco Acid Tests, and Timothy Leary expounds on psychedelics and LSD.

’65 turns into 66 with the focus on the touring Beatles at the end of that rope. WABCs continuous coverage of the Beatles in New York City, Casey Kasem reads a Beatle fan letter, DJs rant, IDs play, The Byrds are influenced, and lots of live Beatle performances, chopped and not.
