Another installment of Teenage life in the 1960s and the L.A. Radio that was inseparable along with it. Tonight it’s BMR and KFWB and Monday night, October 2, 1967. The news was strange – San Francisco just had the Death of Hippy march in the Haight earlier – the new...

First Day - New School - 1967

It’s February 1967 – You Live In L.A. – You’re A Teenager – You’re The New Kid In A New School – First Days Are Just Like That.

Wink Martindale – KFWB – February 18, 1967 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection – It’s happened to almost everybody at one time or another. You’re the New Kid In School – don’t know a soul – don’t know your way around – everybody is staring at you like you’re the...

Spencer Davis Group

Spencer Davis Group (w/Steve Winwood) Live In Stockholm 1967 – RIP: Spencer Davis (1939-2020)

Hearing the sad news this morning of the passing of Spencer Davis, I thought I would run this radio session from Sweden, recorded just prior to Steve Winwood leaving the band to form Traffic. I’m not sure if they ever toured the U.S., but it would have been memorable. Spencer...

Top Of The Pops – Cat Stevens, The Tremeloes, The Fortunes, Paul Jones, Dave Dee etc. – 1967 – Past Daily Soundbooth

It’s May 1967 – You’re A Teenager – You’re In High School – Your World Has Turned Day-Glo – You Can Thank Lord Tim For That – Past Daily Weekend Pop Chronicles.

KBLA – Lord Tim – May 1967 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection – You probably have no recollection of it – 1967 did go by in a blur. Big chunks of it are missing – how and why things happened are mysterious, even to this day. There you were, right...
