Good Morning, Time Travelers! Here we are back in The Summer of Love, and we’ve got a couple of great ones today. There’s also that guy named Jimi Hendrix hanging out too.
Here’s today’s Summer of Love line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Doors
The Doors influenced music in immense ways in a very short period of time. Who knows what could have come our way down the road. Morrison was, without a doubt, a poet. And the band was really good. The whole package, gone before we knew it. The Doors actually had two album releases in 1967, their debut album (The Doors) and Strange Days (featured yesterday).
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience
With one album, Hendrix went from struggle to stardom. This album is heralded as one of the most amazing debuts in rock history.
7:00 p.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! Their Satanic Majesties Request by The Rolling Stones NEW!
The Stones’ only foray into psychedelic music before returning to their roots was not one of my favorite efforts. However, it was the natural progression at the time, and to leave the album out would be egregious. (And any album that has She’s A Rainbow on it can’t be all bad.) I just thought the Stones felt uncomfortable with the genre more than anything. Contributing to this was the fact that the entire recording process was a literal shitshow. The link provides the details.
This would be an excellent day to tune in, turn on and drop out. Spend the day here in The Mermaid Lounge. You deserve a break from all this bullshit.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are in our third day of the Woodstock ’69 celebration. Let’s not forget that we wrap up tomorrow with a Woodstock Watch Party!
Today we switch up the format just a bit!
10:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Shelters
Tom Petty was their mentor, their producer, and their friend. Now the Shelters forge ahead determined to be heard.
12:00 p.m. Under the Influence: Various Artists
Legal, illegal and in beween. Songs about being under the influence of all kinds of stuff.
3:00 p.m. Wake the Fuck Up, America! with Sarah Freels, Episode 2
In Sarah’s second podcast, she provides some background on the Jeffrey Epstein case.
5:00 p.m. Deb Della Piana’s Lies, Half-Truths and Omissions, Episode 1
In the inaugural podcast called Christopher Columbus Was No Hero, Deb Della Piana sets the record straight on history.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Band
The band also known as ‘Bob Dylan’s backup band’ had a healthy career of their own, making their debut at Woodstock.
Hello, Ungovernables! We are getting off to an early start with the content for Wednesday.
10:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists
Whether it’s alcohol, weed, cocaine, or magic mushrooms, we’ve all been there at one time or another. Here’s your playlist.
1:00 p.m. Dr. Martin Pell Challenges the U.S. Navy on Its EMF Data
Dr. Martin Pell is an expert on EMF frequencies, 5G and radiation technology. In this segment, Dr. Pell challenges the U.S. Navy on its EMF data.
4:00 p.m. Chris Hedges and The Empire of Illusion
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges talks about life in the Empire of Illusion, and how everything is not as it seems.
7:00 p.m. Let It Be Naked
By the time the Beatles’ final album rolled around, they were just about ready to kill each other. In fact, they did not record together for much of the album. At the end, John Lennon packed up the takes and brought them to Phil Spector. Yes, that Phil Spector. He added his famous (or infamous, depending upon how you look at it) wall of sound and — with Lennon’s blessing — the album was released.
Let It Be Naked is the original version of the album as it was intended to be released — without Spector’s heavy hand
