This Saturday is National Garage Sale day and we have cleaned out some great relics to rock with. This weekend marks the End of the Doors, whether they knew it or..and that is where we'll start at 7am sharp, no loitering. How bout some good ol family feeling from the Allman Brothers. Like all great bands from the South, they have plenty of church and gospelin their music. Dicky Betts will show you that "Love is Everywhere". We picked up some happy carefree stuff from the Beatles to start the 8pm hour, today will mark the 45th anniversary of their 1965 tour opener at Shea Stadium. The largest rock concert to date at the time. Screaming New York teens going wild and listening to the Beatles do Twist and Shout. Dylan hung out with the Beatles that weekend and turned them on to some conscious altering substances. They dug it and it showed in their next album's Rubber Soul and Revolver. We'll also highlight a band that was so damn good, had so many good writers and guitar players and singers that there was no way they could stay together for more than a couple of years. I have a song that the Guess Who will do that was not real poplular in the Nixon Whitehouse. Invited to play for the Prez and his freinds, Pat Nixon stepped in and requested they don't play their big hit. They did anyway. I'll play it too. The Scottish flower child, the cosmic spirit, the mystic muse, Donovan will contemplate the pros and cons of bannanas, The Rolling Stones will get down and dirty with some Willie Dixon, Steve Miller will take us back to the Fillmore and an anniversary of a famous recording studio in Greenwhich Village turns 40 this weekend. We'll throw in a a couple of one hit wonders and soon the wonder of it all will open your eyes, close your mouth, open your mind and finally close the bathroom door. If this sound like just what your were waiting for, your right. See you Saturday Brothers and Sisters.
Here are the Beatles kicking off their 1965 tour at Shea Stadium.
