Message: 2 Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2003 20:37:15 -0700 From: Alan Gordon Subject: Re: Peace Alan V. Karr: > I'm kind of partial to the "answer" song to "Eve"..."Dawn Of > Correction" by The Spokesmen, except for the part about the U.N. I don't remember the words to that one. But if it's similar to the silly patriotic jingoisic songs like "Ballad of the Green Beret" and the other right-wing stuff... well, those left me cold. Too silly and short-sighted. But hey... I thought some of those psychedelic message toons really meant something. And I wasn't stoned either... well, mostly anyway. There is a recent book called "Turn, Turn, Turn" by Ritchie Unterberger (Richie Unterberger's Unknown Legends) that really gives a lot of background and information about the "real" folk movement and how that evolved to what Dylan and others were doing in the early sixties and beyond. There's a lot about the "answer songs" to the peace movement in the 60's. Even one very silly one by Bob Seger about "yellow... protesters" and the like. Guess I'll go home now and watch more from the "All In The Family" box set. Great stuff. Not a "love it or leave it" kinda guy. peace, psychedelic albabe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Phil Milstein: > "A hot dog makes her lose control," Is that sorta like a "Cuddly Toy" thing too??? Apologies to Harry. Steve Harvey: > Subject: A normal male is 9ccs, si, si? Am I the only one laughing here??? And I'm not even remotely Spanish... 'Course, being a Jewish/Catholic might be sorta similar? I must be having an unusually quiet evening... Laughing all alone in my office. musical weapon of mass destruction, albabe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Fri, 18 Apr 2003 02:06:31 EDT From: Ronnie Allen Subject: Murmaids aftermath First off I want to thank all of you who have already sent me e-mails regarding my radio interview show with the Murmaids. You have made me feel really good! Needless to say the hour (actually 65 minutes since I boldly blew off the news and thus chiseled an extra five minutes!) just FLEW by and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for me. And the three Murmaids have told me that they felt the same way. Having loved "Popsicles And Icicles" for close to 40 years I can tell you without hesitation that tonight's show was truly a DREAM COME TRUE for me, a nostalgic trip to rock and roll heaven except that happily all the participants were alive and well! I wish to express publicly my MOST HEARTFELT appreciation to Terry Fischer, Carol Fischer and Petra Rowell for agreeing to do this show (their first radio interview ever) as well as to David Gates for sharing with all of us his wonderful memories of his first big hit song! If you DID listen to the show I would really appreciate it very much if you would let me know in one of two ways. You can do so (1) either here via a spectropop message (which all will read) or (2) via a private e-mail at The program director of the radio station has EXPLICITLY asked me to send him some representative e-mails that show people's reaction to the show. He and the general manager will then use this information in making a determination as to whether future shows of this type are warranted and, if so, how frequently they should be done. Thus your reaction to tonight's Murmaids show is very important to me! I will also welcome suggestions as to acts that you personally would like to see me feature on FUTURE shows of this type, assuming I get the "go-ahead" to do them! If you write to me privately I don't care how short or long the e-mail is, I will be most grateful to receive your feedback. And, what's more, you have my word that I will promptly respond. I will also be glad, if you'd like me to do so, to pass on a PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM YOU directly to the Murmaids themselves! Thanks in advance for all your additional feedback. :) Ronnie Allen E-mail: -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Fri, 18 Apr 2003 08:29:14 +0200 From: Eddy Subject: Re: "Cuddly Toy" -- Nilsson/Monkees "Cuddly Toy" was not released on 45, I'm afraid. The Nilsson version was on Pandemonium Shadow Show and the Monkees version later that same year (1967) on Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.

Message: 6 Date: Fri, 18 Apr 2003 01:12:23 -0700 (PDT) From: Dee Subject: Re: Experiment In Terror > Relating to Creature Features music, the theme > song to the Saturday night fright show was by > Henry Mancini from the movie "Experiment in > Terror". It's a gem.... > Incidentally, Link Wray's "Rumble" was used by > WFLD ch.32 for Svengooli/Chicago DJ Jerry G > Bishop (and son of Svengooli/ Rich Koz). Phil mentions this all so casually, but I'd been searching for an answer for years. Someone gave me a wrong lead on it being Link Wray (your answer helps explain that - different show!), but after reading your message, I found a way to hear a snippet of "Experiment In Terror", and yeah! that's the one. Of course, hearing it more than a quarter century later, as an adult this time, it's easy to hear it as Mancini and reminiscent of his "Touch Of Evil". I've already ordered a copy of a CD which contains the track. I guess we've probably all got that one question that's been driving us crazy - that was mine, and now that it's solved I'm delighted. Thanks! I'm pleased to add it's every bit as good as I'd remembered. Dee __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? The New Yahoo! Search - Faster. Easier.
