Universe – Part 16

“Universe” Part 16  What About The 60’s? F”


June 21, 2013


Mark Hosler, Don. (Almost Negativland)


Mark Hosler, founder of Negativland, joins me for an electronics-heavy mix of past and present. Together, we delve into the hip side of the early 60’s with “How To Speak Hip,” and beat poets and ranters like Kerouac, William Burroughs, and Lord Buckley. Jean Shepherd returns on location, covering the ’64 New York World’s Fair for his radio show, nuclear civil defense and discernment, and a few songs to evoke the era.


3 Hours.

Jean Shepherd, a notable radio presence in 60s N.Y. radio, tells about his youthful trials and tribulations trying to become a class A ham radio operator, accompanied by our real ham radio jammers recorded from the amateur air. In ’63, a real disc jockey actually locks himself in his studio, refuses to leave or open the door, and plays the same song over and over in an attempt to get a raise from his boss. We have influential music of the era, from the blues to Tiny Tim, and the saucers return.

“Universe” Part 14  What About The 60’s? D”

We spread out for 5 hours as we bring early 60’s comedy and sex together, including some extensive ramblings by Lenny Bruce, Helen Gurley Brown (“Sex And The Single Girl”) addressing a live audience in ’64, all but the forbidden words from “The Sensual Woman,” and a lot of “Sex Dirt” from The Weatherman. Though completely cleaned up for the FCC, it all has a nice, risky broadcast feel to it. Plus the usual UFO’s and music from the era.


5 Hours.
