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!
