Hi and welcome to the Revolution, this Saturday morning 7a-10a, is the special time that we, the hipsters of a generation, gather round the drum circle and let our freak flag fly. We'll start the morning with the last Doors album to feature Jim Morrison. It will highlight both the glamour and the seediness of L.A. Recorded in a house on La Cienaga Blvd. in Los Angeles, it is a fitting memory to the blues roots of this great band..We'll make the rounds in the Bay Areawith Janis, CCR and the good ol' Grateful Dead. In fact, I will have some Dead news that will be most welcomed. John Sebastian of the Loving Spoonful will tell us why the band had that good ol American sound at a time when most of the rock and roll was coming from England. Bands like the Hollies, which were just inducted into the AMERICAN rock and roll hall of fame. Graham Nash will have a few choice words to say about his former band. We will trace the family tree of a couple of Hippy bands who came from the LA folk scene, a testiment to the creavtive flood that was the mid 60s, anything goes mood of the times. Birthdays worth noting, producer Jimmy Miller, "Mr. Jimmy" the Stones refer to in the song "You Can't Alway's Get What You Want" Jimmy produced the best music the stones ever did. Also with a birthday, Keith Relf, the Yardbirds lead singer on "For Your Love" and "I'm a Man". 3 hours of intense flashbacking and frivolity..what more can you ask from your Saturday Morning?
Rock on my Brothers and Sisters...Peace out.
The Doors - LA Woman
