It’s The 60's Poets, and their Thoughts and Stories About War And Peace.

I left off last half with Donovan, and will begin this half with a song…
A trip back to the 60's for The Poets, and for this 3rd of 5 Topics it’s War And Peace.
I always remember Scott Muni doing similar shows in his early years at WNEW-FM.
Since it’s the 60's, the overwhelming feeling is Anti-War!…
I talked about Cocaine a bit in Part One, and that made me think of an old tape I have had for years.

I am going to play an old Odds And Ends show.

And the Theme Within A Theme is Summer Love!
It's happened to us all- bright sun, green grass, shiny beach, a lot of skin showing- those Pheromones are flying all over the place!…
Damn, Summer has arrived with a Vengeance, it is HOT!!!
More Summer Songs, including one by the Beach Boys not played very often- and if you grew up at a certain time I would have to think they symbolize Summer more than any other Group.
I don't do Summer every year, but when I do I seem…
On June 20th it Officially Became Summertime.
Music to welcome it in is what I've got here, with Summer Music and Summer Memories.

Again, it’s always hard to believe these things, but it’s the 54th Anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival, and regarded as the beginning of the Summer Of Love.

Opening up this Chapter on Rivers, I have a Test for you.

National Rivers Month is celebrated annually during the month of June to promote awareness and preservation of the country's Rivers.

I'll try with a few Ha Ha's and an early appearance in Pop Music of a Mellotron.
Did you know that Professional Clowns unofficially "Trademark" their faces by sending close-up photos of themselves in full…
It is a Musical Look and Listen to Carnivals and Circuses that I have been doing these past weeks.
