This hits the mark. One of Steve Stills best songs.

I marvel that folks take people like Tarantino (or any Hollywood show-off, or any filmmaker at all) seriously. How does that inspire something like this show? Truly, I can't make the connection.

Their musical chemistry was amazing, especially in the Buffalo Springfield
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 10:16pm Erica:

I read that she died in 1974. I could be wrong. They said she choked on a chicken bone or of eating a ham sandwich but it was a heart attack.
  Wed. 8/14/19 10:17pm Dean:

No apology called for. I'm not offended or insulted. I'm baffled. I'd like to learn how the connection is made.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 10:17pm Funky16Corners:

Heart attack in a flat in London. I was at the Conestoga Inn n Lancaster, PA on vacation with my family. My Mom loved/loves Mama Cass

I wasn't alive when it happened but online research from reliable sources will tell you the truth.

i remember hearing Mama Cass died
and of course all the bullshit stories about her choking on food
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 10:19pm Franco Twinkie:

The Trip sound track used Flash,Bang,Pow by The Electric Flag for that scene where Peter Fonda is running thru Laural Canyon blazing on acid. It is such an effective piece of music for conveying terror, that it was used in Easy Rider to set you up for spectacular ending.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 10:19pm coelacanth∅:

(i was a child, but i still didn't buy it. it was just too perfect to be believable)
  Wed. 8/14/19 10:20pm Dean:

I, too, recall the Mama Cass stories. Then and now it remains a great loss. I respected her in ways it would take many years for me to understand.

But "fake news," right? It's a Trump thing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 10:21pm Funky16Corners:

It's amazing how rumors like that persisted over the years
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 10:22pm coelacanth∅:

That voice, Canned Heat is instantly recognizable.
  Wed. 8/14/19 10:47pm Dean:

I have tried in recent years to find LA radio broadcasts, AM, I believe, to which I used to listen during the '90s. It was a call-in show hosted by a fellow named Brother Paul, who fielded callers' laments and questions about their lives and circumstances, and answered with bland religious observations. Would love to hear it again. Musical highlight was the theme song, which was Loggins & Messina's "Peace of Mind," a very nice tune.

There used to be a late night radio show in NYC during the 70s that was kind of like that, with an ex-Catholic priest

I remember commercials for Compoz

He asks if he wants Compose??

ah, compoz.....
  Wed. 8/14/19 11:10pm Dean:

Huh. Can't find evidence of Hal's there. Curious...

There was also the station in Long Beach for a time devoted to progressive rock, and of course KPFK near Universal Studios. Not rock, but good programming.

Compoz 'scuse me.

@Dean - I'll have to go back and check

KRLA and KPPC had The Credibility Gap who would parody the news like no one else.

@Franco - I'm always looking for early Credibility Gap airchecks

Thank you, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, for fucking up what was a perfectly satisfactory general source of real-time information.

(I jest, but not entirely.)

NY area the stations were WNEW and WPLJ (which started as WABC FM), not much more that I knew about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:17pm Funky16Corners:

WOR-FM, WMCA-AM too
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh Larry, there are some real good ones. There still funny! I use to see them at the Ashgrove when I was in high school, which I could get into because they only served coffee, tea and apple cider.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - I have all of their records but none of the really early radio stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:19pm doctorjazzI:

WMCA was an earlier source, more early to mid 60s for me (Home of the Good Guys).
  Wed. 8/14/19 11:19pm Dean:

Franco, a buddy of mine is working on a history of LA psychedelia (or whatever), much of which involves the Ashgrove. I should put you two in touch, if you wouldn't mind.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:20pm Erica:

Gonna be a groovy show.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:20pm Franco Twinkie:

There is this guy at the PCC flea market that has air checks of all that shit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:22pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - Groovy was a local SoCal teen dance party show hosted by a minor actor/singer named Michael Blodgett who shows up in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
  Wed. 8/14/19 11:22pm Dean:

Another buddy of mine probably has a lot of the CG stuff, too. He's in tight with a good friend of Firesign Theater.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:24pm Erica:

Thanks for the info Larry.

You're welcome. I may have played his 45 on the show before.

But you just can't live in TEXAS
If you don't have lot of soul.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, the only band I saw there besides The Credibility Gap, was The Legion Of Mary. But, I saw the CB there four times.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:26pm Erica:

Hey it's Rod Stewart, before Maggie May.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - That's one of my all time fave songs. I got to see him play it live a few times
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

If you haven't heard this album, check it out. Really good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:27pm doctorjazzI:

Early Riff stuff was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:28pm doctorjazzI:

Rod stuff...(have to learn to proof read...)
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:29pm Erica:

Yeah doc it's hard to read your text before posting it when you're in a rush.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

yes many people learned about Rod when his fairly abominable disco hits got played and never found out that he was really good once. (even before the masterpiece, Maggie May)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:32pm doctorjazzI:

Especially here,when you want to post either while the song you're posting about is still on,or the commentyou're reacting to is still fresh...

...and always a YES to Terry Reid!
i admit i like his version better than the original

Again, thank you, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, for fucking up our lives.

Indeed. I love the phone call to the White House in this one
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

One day I was with one of the guys in The Peanut Butter Conspiericy. We were going up to his house to look for some piece of crap in his garage for a show we were working on. He says to me: "See that house? Ray Manzarak lives there. He's a real asshole and he pretends I'm invisible!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:42pm Funky16Corners:

An astute appraisal of rocks most verbose relic.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:42pm Erica:

I could go for vanilla fudge Coke lol.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I think you can make that on the fancy Coke machine at the movies
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:44pm Erica:

Seriously Larry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:45pm doctorjazz:

Probably had more balls than sense covering Bo Diddley...

Not completely, but they do have a lot of flavors to mix together
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Larry, last Thursday when we were looking for Grannys house I saw The Portero Theater where the Dead practiced during Aoxomoxoa. It's now a spirtiual center of some ilk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

That's very cool!

I've seem those machines, movies and restaurants have then. You can add vanilla, cherry,orange, or whatever you any drink.

@Doc - My all time favorite album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

I don't know about you guys, but this show flew by for me. I was mixing and typing my ass off. I hope it was OK.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

That was not from Happy Trails. It was a studio jam recorded at Pacific High Recorders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

My bad. I got my files crossed.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:49pm Erica:

It actually went by slower than usual for me Larry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

I think it's from the Rhino Love Is But the Song We Sing box
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:50pm Erica:

Still I can't believe it's almost over already.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:50pm Franco Twinkie:

Another hi red DVD, 4 CD, and vinyl package, everything you might have wanted to hear of Forever Changes (stereo,mono,outtakes, 24/96, all the buzzwords...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

they have a selection of those corn syrup-based flavor syrups at my sorta favorite cafe. i could probably walk in with a can of coke or cream soda and they'd squirt some vanilla syrup in.

Larry, loved the shoe (really big SHOE...), thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:52pm nostrangerer:

i've gotten people familiar with several songs from this album (& 1 from de capo) at the pub, via jukebox.

(da capo... da)
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 11:55pm Franco Twinkie:

John Cippolinas guitar is practically inaudible on that mix. Gary Duncan drove the band, John was the stunt pilot.

Came into some of these LPs from a friend who had about 10,000 CDs, done LPs, and was moving to Manhattan from a Long Island house. Had to content myself with 2 boxes of stuff stuff (my wife was going to kill me, wasn't happy with the small haul). I connected him with FMU, Matt picked up all the rest for the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 11:56pm nostrangerer:

As you wrote in your intro, this is not the 69 of my youth but reminded me of radio in those days when you would hear one tune that electrified you, then one that made you cringe, then one that was ok so you stay tuned waiting for the next great song. Thanks for your efforts putting this together for our entertainment.
