Those beautiful 60′s! AM radio was what we grew up on. Little transistors with the single earpiece at the beach, in the car, everywhere we wanted to go, the music went with us! Scott Muni, Harry Harrison, Cousin Brucie, Joe O’Brien just to name a few. What a great era! I remember driving in my father’s red Ford Falcon and every now and then they would listen to MY radio station and one of the following songs would come on. I felt like I had a major victory!
A little commentary on some great songs!
So even at my young age, I always wondered how they could play their instruments with a leather glove on!
The Seeds were a bit scary to me! Probably one of the worst designed record label logos!
One of my favorite songs! When I was managed by Leiber Krebs, former Magoo Peppy Castro was also managed by them in a great band named Balance
The Prunes were great on the Smothers Brothers Show. Dig that autoharp! SHades of John Sebastian?
Out of Ohio, they were discovered and managed by Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz who worked with the 1910 Fruitgum Company and Ohio Express
Da dit da dit da dit da dit Western Union!
My dentist, Bruce Miner was the keyboardist and his brother played guitar in this band. The song paid Bruce’s dental school bills! He still plays and sings and as well as extracting molars!
Take five guys from San Jose, CA wear Count Dracula-style capes when playing live and co-op the sound of the Yardbirds and boom, instant hit
Age 11, my sister took me to see the T.A.M.I show at the Bell Blvd movie theater. On screen was this cool band with a drummer using a hook for a hand! The song was good too!
