Good Morning, Ungovernables!We’re back after 36 hours of live Open Stream, and we’re easing our way into fall while winding down our tribute to The Summer of Love.
Here’s your programming for Friday!
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Hollies NEW!
The Hollies were originally formed in 1962 in Manchester, England, by childhood friends Allan Clarke (lead vocals, harmonica) and Graham Nash (rhythm guitar and vocals). They have been through many personnel changes over the years. Graham Nash left the band in 1968 and relocated to Los Angeles where he formed Crosby, Stills, and Nash with David Crosby (formerly of The Byrds) and Stephen Stills (formerly of Buffalo Springfield). The Hollies, however remained an influential pop/rock band througout the sixties and into the seventies, making some excellent music.
7:00 p.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! Deliver by The Mamas & The Papas NEW!
Released in February of 1967 the title, Deliver, was an inside joke among the group since recording began soon after Cass Elliott told them that she was pregnant with her first child, Owen. There was still a stigma associated with unwed mothers at the time, so the band kept it secret. The album charted at No. 2 on Billboard and resulted in three singles, Look Through My Window, Creeque Alley, and Dedicated To The One I Love.
Interestingly enough, Creeque Alley, is kind of an autobiographical history of the band which talks about other members of the folk community at the time, such as John Sebastian of The Lovin’ Spoonful, Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, and Barry McGuire of The New Christy Minstrels (and who later released the sixties anthem, Eve of Destruction. as a solo act).
We’re back and rolling into fall with new music, new playlists and specials. We remain free, and continue to operate outside the system. Tune us in.
