LOOKING BACK

I always say the Sixties are not over until the last hippie has died. Hitchhiked out of here, to Nirvana.

STUFF

We’re living in the aftermath of an accumulative age, an era when we all crowded our homes with stuff (as George Carlin has it). Years ago, my dear friend Ric would move his belongings to new digs by selecting a few books from his small library and grab a modest change of clothes and promise to come back and get the rest later, which never happen’d. It’s going to be interesting to see how our culture deals with all this stuff, gawd, what a pile. I’m afraid much of the sorting an reapportioning falls to the living, will there be an upsurge in yard sales and flea markets? That depends on whether anybody wants all this stuff. A lot of it only means something to the original accumulator. Our own home is stuffed to the gills, mostly with books and records, it’s embarrassing, sort of, but . . . but . . . but . . . I like my stuff! There’s nothing more pleasurable than to walk across the room and pull a book off a shelf and find that Rachel Carson quote that has been on your mind lately, or to flip through the Ellington albums and pull out the monumental AFRO-EURASIAN ECLIPSE suite (1971) that Bobby Bradford reminded me the other day to re-visit. I specifically remember when I was a child the week I spent walking around proud that I had reached the age that I had things to put in my pockets.

Echo cornet (1895, Paris) ---- Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC ---- the placard says: “The second bell on this cornet takes the form of a bicone-shaped chamber, which functions as a built-in mute. This enabled players to switch rapidly between open and muted passages and was ideal for producing the echo effects that often featured in virtuoso cornet solos in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.” ---- photo by MW September 30, 2o19

    **You would think that in a 3 hour radio show one could more or less paint a definitive picture of the Sixties and its music but with such a huge grand body of work it is next near to impossible to define that era ———– Maybe in a ten hour show? —- There was so much more I wanted to play: Country Joe & the Fish, Doors, Dylan “Visions of Johanna,” Yardbirds “Happenings Ten Years Ago,” Dr John the Night Tripper, Jeff Beck’s first album TRUTH, Hendrix “All Along the Watchtower,” Stones “Ruby Tuesday,” Mothers of Invention, Buffalo Springfield “Expecting to Fly” sound collage, Aretha, Chocolate Watch Band ?” doing one of the most savage and ferocious songs ever recorded “Are You Gonna Be There, at the Love In?” and JOAN BAEZ fergawdsakes . . . .

    ***In those late hours a lot of phone calls. I mostly usually answer, unless I’m busy, generally speaking a radio engineer/host is very busy. There’s a lot to do. Over the years you learn to stay calm. It’s a radio maxim that yr going to get crank calls, it’s the nature of the game, or, at these late hours, folks who have partied themselves over the edge. The PRHS always gets a lot of telephone calls, much more than the noon jazz show. This night I spoke with, but mostly listened to, a lot of intelligent, thoughtful, respectful people —- In no way would I characterize these callers as lonely who call up late-night disk jockeys —- They just wanted to make gentle requests and relate their own Sixties stories —- This music sparks memories —- And it occurred to me that that was part of the job: To listen, within reason, to these good people, as one human to another. I let them talk. (I told this to Carol Liebowitz and she said You’re like a bartender, then.) One caller lived in Haight Ashbury in the mid-60s “One of the best times of my life, and then I went away to that war.” Another had a band in Boston and worked Club 47 and knew that Cambridge crowd of Jim Kweskin Jug Band. Another called to request Pentangle, Donovan, and Tim Buckley, which amazed me, I didn’t know anybody knew Tim Buckley’s music and I had to tell her I actually had his album (Lp) GOODBYE AND HELLO in my hands just before I left the house, and decided that no one would relate to it’s deep introspection. Apparently, I was wrong.

    • Mark, what a brilliant playlist! I’m teaching The History of Rock n’ Roll at UCCS and have to go through that agonizing reduction of choices each week, and despair that I leave out so much that’s great and important. I re-write the syllabus each semester so I don’t go crazy. Thanks for always delivering, and with such love and respect for the music.

  2. I love that Tim Buckley album. Just about played it till the grooves disappeared. Haven’t heard it in decades, and now I’ll need to crawl into the back of the closet, retrieve the correct box of LPs (god, it could take an hour or two to locate it and wrangle it out of there), and extract the Buckley. Thanks for the memories.

    • On the Psychedelic Playlist (above) Klaus has set it up so that if you click the song titles you can hear the song. I just watched the Beau Brummels sing “Laugh Laugh” (lip synching on a TV show) and the drummer is killer —– ALSO a great photo of the band on the beach with the Golden Gate in the fog behind them .

    Running Out of Time . . . .

    Curious thing: Time

    Sometimes it stands still
    or
    Goes double-time
    Half time
    Time out of mind
    Time in a crunch
    time zones
    Doing time
    Stopping time
    Dream time
    Stopped in time
    Frozen
    Stretched
    Time for lunch
    Old timey music
    Timing gear
    Egg timer
    Time ticking
    Time dither
    Crack in time
    Time bomb
    Which brings us back to: Running out of time
    . . . . the last sad grains of sand trickling through
    interstices between one hour and the next
