    Thanks for this Carol. I tuned in and found the show very
    interesting. Sound wasn't good, but I noticed on the
    website that as of November, the site will start
    broadcasting for RealAudio G2. Should be an immense
    Hal Lifson is entertaining with his memoirs of 60s TV,
    film, and pop culture of all sorts. He doesn't let that
    interfere with the music, though, and considering KIEV is
    primarily a talk radio channel, that was an unexpected
    Hal said in two weeks his special guests will be April
    Stevens and Nino Tempo! Hey, maybe he will play Boys Town!!!
    I wrote him an email and asked him to play it. Hmmm...
    Here are a few tracks he played on the air just now.
    Winter a go-go - Gary Usher(?)
    Black is Black - Los Bravos
    Honey in your Hips - Yardbirds 
    Imagine the Swan - Zombies
    Theme from "That Girl" 
    Secret Love - Billy Stewart 
    She Knows Me To Well - Beach Boys 
    Heaven is Being With You - Jackie DeShannon
    Nice choices, I think most would agree. Definitely not
    your consultant designed cookie cutter playlist! That
    Yardbirds track, for instance, is a very obscure one
    featuring Clapton that was never played on US radio.
    Winter a go-go was apparently a demo used in the movie!
    The URL is
    Be there or be square, teens.
    Thanks again for this, Carol. Very cool to see a post from
    Nancy Sinatra here!
    All the best,

    Dear All
    The Jackie de Shannon Appreciation Society had now restarted. 
    Having been a member for a couple of years before it was put 
    on hold, I have now agreed to do a webpage for it. I'm nearly
    ready to go public with it, but just wondered if anyone on
    this list has any material or scanned pictures that could
    be included?
    Meanwhile, watch this space for the launch of the website!

    Subject:     Disk-O-Tec Holiday
    Date:        Mon, 25 Oct 1999 12:49:26 +0100
    Hello there,
    Tom Waters was asking about Disk-O-Tec Holiday.
    The film is an American version of a UK pop quickie called
    'Just For You'. The UK film had masses of clips of bands
    like the Merseybeats, and the aforementioned  Peter and
    Gordon and Millie as well as  A Band Of Angels,  fabulous
    Brit-girl trio the Orchids and a brilliant clip of Louise
    Cordet. All these clips were actually French Scopitone
    films (a sort of film Jukebox) that some enterprising
    company had strung together with a ridiculous plot about a
    scientist (I think). The American version (thanks Andrew)
    was produced by Frank Slay and added clips of The Rockin'
    Ramrods and Freddie Cannon, both of whom I think Slay
    managed.  The plot in the US one was about some drippy kid
    who'd recorded a dopey ballad and taken it to radio
    stations and eventually managed to perform it on a TV show.
    You get to see DJ Arnie 'Woo Woo' Ginsberg! Other bands
    who survived to the US version were.
    On an entirely separate subject, Holy Mackerel - it is
    great, reissue would be a fab thing.
    See you later, Kieron

    I hope David plays it and since he knew it, I'm assuming
    he can access it. I actually DO have a "copy" of this
    Ronettes song, "How Does It Feel" and it was recorded by
    the Doopees. I have it on a mix tape sent to my by Jill
    Mingo-go, a DJ  and record promoter in Glasgow who has
    exchanged a few soft pop items with me including the LP by
    The Match. Anyone know it? Its fabulash with a stunning
    version of "Spray Colored Glasses"...Just thought you
    wanted to know.

    Hey Spectropopers...anyone have any info on Garnet?Does he
    fit into the Spectropop Profile? Someone gave me a Rhino
    comp. tape and he's on it--a great version of Cry
    Baby---perhaps the original that Janis Joplin styled her
    outing of it on?Is he still around? Also picked up an LP
    titled "93/KHJ Golden 30"--this would be of interest to
    anyone who listened to LA top 40 radio in the 60's,though
    the songs are the standard Chart Toppers of the time (it's
    not dated but it has a picture of one of the Boss Jocks in
    his new 1967 Firebird .) the inner sleeves have a lot of
    interesting photos and text of the jocks mingling with
    sundry pop stars...if there's any old KHJ fans on the list
    who want this one then get in  touch off-list and I'll
    send it to you for cost of stamps only...regards to all,

    Besides the Barbarella soundtrack, Music To Watch Girls By, 
    I also have an album on the CGC label CGC-1000 (Stereo) 
    called," Let Me Touch You" and has the following songs: 
    Stella By Starlight; Golden Earrings; To Each His Own; 
    Barbarella (different recording than the soundtrack); Moon
    Rover; Together; Wives And Lovers; An Angel Is Love; Let Me
    Touch You; Two For The Road. From the songs I figured it 
    came out in the late 60s when Barbarella and the movie Two
    For The Road was in release. My copy of the album is from a
    radio station library and it has something that looks like 
    1972 dates written in. Can anybody tell me anything about 
    this, it is very much like Music To Watch LP. They would 
    make a good two fer.
