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.
