Listen to both clips in the Radio Miscellany section of the site.
Another fantastic set from the WBCN series. The first clip features Charles Laquidara from January 16, 1971. He can be heard playing the new ELP track Lucky Man as it was released. This is the second air check on the site to feature that album at release time. David Pritchard from CHUM FM being the first. WBCN must have worn out it’s copies of The Notorious Byrd Brothers album as can be heard on this air check. I believe the flaws are more than just tape distortion. The set starts with the Cat and Dog Report and into some folk by way of Tom Rush and Fred Neil. This segment continues on a clip I posted earlier which can be heard here
The second clip is a continuation of Charles playing the Stones because he could and not because it was a special. The first half of that was uploaded earlier this year. Highlight for me from this segment is Mick’s “Memo from Turner” an old FM staple from the Performance soundtrack with slide guitar played by Ry Cooder.
Quality is better on the Stones segment. Still more to come on the site from the great WBCN FM. The content guaranteed not to disappoint.
Clips feature DJ Larry Sharp on Seattle’s KISW FM from the late summer of 1981. Most of the programming comes from a show called “Sunday Night Oldies” and you will hear some cuts that are rarely played on the radio now. KISW’s regular AOR programming is heard during the last 15 minutes of the first clip.
Another great set of music as played on KOME FM in 1979 during their” LBJ years” weekend special. You will hear the Doors, The Steve Miller Band, Jethro Tull, Lee Michaels and a lot more. The DJ’s include Jim Seagull into “Kelly” about a quarter way into the second clip. There`s a few diversions from the usual classic rock fare to keep things interesting for fans of free form.
