Classic Rock Bottom


Getting ready to wrap things up at the late great WOR-FM with these last two chapters, and we will drastically go from joyous celebration to the people responsible for the station's success being fired.
The DJ's were allowed to play songs by groups better known for their Top 40 hits but were stretching out and expanding themselves, attempting experimental things- those hidden album cuts that were amazingly progressive for their time!
You'll hear Rosko reading poetry, as he frequently did by a guy with an exotic name that I had never heard of!
And I will begin to re-create a 1-year Anniversary Concert that WOR-FM held on June 11, 1967.
Although the poster lists three acts- in fact there were FIVE acts, and I will get to all of them.
As things would turn out, happy as this event was, those evil, greedy "consultants" were shortly about to swoop down at WOR-FM and ruin everything!
Let's put that aside for now, and just enjoy some truly wonderful Music!

I would ask for you to tell it anyway, but if it's too long and dull.......

Wait. I really need to hear about it now? Maybe you'll dedicate a show to it?

I have it and I'll look for it, gimme a reminder if I forget.

It really has been crazy for well over a month, a story too dull and long to tell.

That's right, got to play Flute Thing in all its glory, lol!
Unless it pops up on their portable device, the stupid youth of today would have no contact with poetry...probably wouldn't understand it or even know what it is.
You want that song by It's A Beautiful Day, the big bird one, lol?
Let me know, it's free.
Yes, one more show, and I suddenly sounded familiar, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

So THAT'S why you didn't play your these song. Pretty sneaky.

Wouldn't really know, but I don't think anyone reads poetry on air, especially on rock stations, any longer. I'm not a big fan of poetry, but I think the unwashed youth would just change the channel if someone did it today. You know, because the youth of today is stupid.

As I was listening to this today, for some reason I went back to check on It's A Beautiful Day. THe album I want is still way too expensive, but see what you made me do?

One more show?
