ROCKOLLECTIONS: 1967 AND SUMMER OF LOVE PT.11

After a few weeks away, a return to that great year 1967, And The Summer Of Love.
AM Radio back then was Top Forty, but for a number of years that wasn't even true- they played about 25 records, sometimes 23.
Think about that...the SAME 25 songs over and over!
The advent of FM Radio as a Rock force brought with it not only far more songs, but other forms of Music, other Worlds Of Music.
This chapter I'll take just a small look at Folk Music, where artists quietly had been making albums for years, unheard on Radio.
Outside of College Stations who would play these songs?
We all had a lot of catching up to do, and I thank Scott Muni on WNEW-FM for opening up a huge genre of Music I quickly and eagerly devoured.
Muni, and Jonathan Schwartz, Rosko and Alison Steele, made me a Folkie.
Which I remain to this day, it's a comfort zone for me.
So, songs that ask questions, that SAY something.
Some of the Poets of the Time.
Join me for a listen to The Words!

That last song was pretty long. Did they have a lot to say in that?
