We've formed a non-profit, Early 1900's Music Preservation, and have been broadcasting with public support for nearly a year--have the next two or three years already funded--you can listen 24/7 for a week without a repeat to original 78's from1925 to 1935, several of my records in the playlist, but the vast majority belong to my friend in Ft. Worth and about 1/3 to a collector friend who lives in Florida--I have nearly 2,500 recordings on my YouTube channel VictrolaJazz as well.

That's a bit beyond my time but I will give a listen.

Yesterday it so happens I was listening to some old west coast greats of the blues and rock on YouTube, also Cheap Trick practicing in their own studio too.

Smoky Wilson, James Harmon, Hollywood Fats, William Clarke

50's 60's rock, folk, nothing from the past 15 years.

Track 5 from Robins second solo album released in 1974. His breakthrough album, it peaked at 7 on the Billboard album chart, and achieved Gold status that same year. He went on to release four more studio albums in the 70s, with three of them going Gold. He had been a member of Procol Harum from 1967 1971 and appeared on their first five albums. His seamless technique, emotional playing and out-of-this-world guitar sound make him one of the greats, in my opinion. James Dewar (RIP) was a very soulful blues/rock vocalist, who I feel never got the recognition he...

If you are ever in the Minneapolis, MN area, stop by the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting. Lots of old broadcasting equipment and music.

There was some Metallica on the radio. And the kids wanted me to play "Cake by the Ocean" which I have to admit is a darn catchy song.

I was just reading a chapter about music preference in a book called "Hit Makers".

People prefer familiarity over novelty, or at least like to discover new things starting from a base of familiarity. When Spotify accidentally included some familiar (to the user) songs in its weekly "Discover Weekly" list, people enjoyed the list more. When they removed familiar songs, people liked the list less, perhaps because it seemed less trustworthy, not having anything they knew they already liked on it.

Anyone here remember when people had the patience to listen to a 3 plus minute guitar intro ? This is still so cool. - especially from about 2:10 to 3:15 ( for those of you that can't wait for the punch line )

Those are nice sometimes. Nice with Lou Reed.

Ain't YouTube great?

No I don't smoke weed or take drugs.

They said Johnny was drunk though when he wrote this tune

Just stumbled on this. I like the original better, but this is an interesting take.

My God. Remember when people liked hearing new ideas in rock music? LA had new wave, alternative and punk clubs like Madame Wong's, Hong Kong Café, Club 88, Anti Club --those were different days for sure! New Wave was Punk and the alternative dance clubs overflowed with leather, ripped tee shirts, safety pin piercings and makeup like war paint. Berkeley is probably still that way LOL You could see the counter culture scene all over the world at the major cities, New York, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Dublin, Florence, Barcelona.

Known For 2 main songs "Janitor" and "Gidget Goes To Hell" The female vocalist has some clever styles you'll never hear anywhere else. The male vocals are like Devo to me. The drummer is very creative and kind of well-heeled. I hear an occasional timbale backbeat and solo timbales in Janitor and in the other songs, maybe conga too.

A distinctive and clever punk rock phenomenon; here's the whole album on YouTube. I'd like to think they influenced to producers of the South Park theme.

What do you think? Look up the live version of Janitor with the lyrics displayed; they are a lot better than you might think.

Remember Rodney Bingenheimer on KROQ with his odd announcing voice? --his mother came on the air and he sounds exactly like her
Here he is in 1978 interviewing Joan Jett with The Runaways at the time, later to form Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
