“Universe Part 26  What About The 60’s? P”


Sept. 20, 2013


Beginning with all four of our CD players filled with lots of 60s jazz played all at once, and a reprise of The Last Poets relating the history of jazz, we continue with Nico and The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, Country Joe McDonald vs. LBJ, an ode to Richard Nixon, and lots of other mid to late 60s rock. After a review of the early 60’s Mercury and Gemini space flights, Nasa’s Apollo program to put us on the moon “By the end of this decade” begins.

Universe – Part 25

“Universe Part 25  What About The 60’s? O”


Sept. 13, 2013


This one is all about The Last Poets, who introduced everyone to rapping in the mid 60’s, accompanied by civil rights radicals like Malcolm X, and the whole aura of black radical revolutionary lyrics and speeches that scared us all in that short but intense era of black political emergence. Vietnam underlies much of this cultural resentment and M.L.K decries our war in Vietnam in one of the best, now forgotten speeches he ever gave.

Universe – Part 24

“Universe Part 24 What About The 60’s? N”


Sept. 6, 2013


Subbing for Barb and the Crack-O-Dawn usually here on the first Thurs of every month, this extra OTE continues with yet more songs and radio from the mid 60’s, most of which are from Great Britain, including a BBC parody retrospective, “1966 And All That.” Suddenly it’s 1966.


At 3:00 AM, I continue subbing another two hours for Puzzling Evidence, first conducting, but shortly losing control of the up-for-grabs conversation between Philo, Dr. Hal, and callers, all accompanied by pleasant music.

“Universe Part 23 What About The 60’s? M”


August 30, 2013


A lengthier episode covering the music and the radio of the mid 60’s.
Beginning with a ‘66 broadcast of Scott Muni on WOR, N.Y, the music
then extends from pop to fine art stuff from John Cage and the 60’s
performance art group, Fluxus. N.Y. radio’s Gene Shepard returns with
a story about trains accompanied by train songs, and we’re talking
country with Cash, Cline, Everly Brothers, and Jack Scott, and UFO’s
return in the 60’s with increasing frequency.
