Universe – Part 13

“Universe” Part 13  What About The 60’s? C”

May 24, 2013

We continue with all audio from the 60’s. This one is  about the emergence of the Beatles, focusing on all their early 60’s work, plus a few songs contemporary with them, interrupted only by live coverage of Kennedy and Oswald getting shot via KLIF, Dallas. And UFO’s are still out there.

3 Hours.

    Sad. Don has dementia and is stuck in the past. Hold my teeth so I can down this bottle of Geritol and play moribund music of the ’60s. At least the Weatherman was much more interesting and endearing with his Asperger’s syndrome.
    KPFA, please do not renew OTE and present something much less irrelevant.

    It is so, so sad. A prophet, even a non-prophet, has no honor in his own country. Terrence McKenna observed that to test a program designed to predict the future one has to see how well it predicts the past. Don broadcast tomorrow yesterday; thus, he broadcasts yesterday today. Trust, but verify. It’s only a test, Emment, and you don’t have to take it.

    Emment, I understand what you’re feeling – I, too, often feel twinges that OTE is way too stuck in the past, and while pretending to be avant radio, the retro, documentary styled mixes I’m doing for months on end are bringing the thing down. And then I listen (too!)and think for all the backward looking style and content angst, they’re very good shows in that vein!
    And I want to use up some of the tons of historical audio stuff I have collected for 30 years and never used. And Dammit, I Really want to get rid of it, so I’m doing it all at once, until it’s used up.
    As to the past, it will always be with us (I’m only helping to prove that!) and may, as my dear Reelboy noted, be useful, or at least interesting, to compare with what we are now calling “now,” which we generally like to assume never happened before.

    I really like the documentary style mixes. Although you do seem to have an inordinate fondness for Beatles.

    Well,Zuzu, I did only one show totally about the Beatles – and how can you not when trying to evoke the 60’s??? But they will appear again in this trod thru history, just like they did the first time!
