--------------< And here's another one: http://www.californiaaircheck.com They have quite a lot of good stuff, particularly for Southern California radio fans & collectors. Also recommended is Walt Bailey at http://www.oldradioshows.com/ who sells quite a bit of his dubs over on Ebay. Most of what he has are recent rock-related radio shows (American Top 40 countdowns, etc.), but there's also quite a few Beatles/1960s-related music shows as well. --MFW -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- -= Marc Wielage | "The computerized authority =- -= MusicTrax, LLC | on rock, pop, & soul." =- -= Chatsworth, CA | =- -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Message: 3 Date: Sun, 11 Feb 2001 23:14:30 -0500 From: john rausch <> Subject: more news on Ronnie`s incident I found more news on the Ronnie`s incident at these to sites: here`s more Ronnie news http://www.nydailynews.com/2001-02-09/News_and_Views/City_Beat/a-99296.asp http://www.nydailynews.com/2001-02-10/News_and_Views/City_Beat/a-99382.asp John Rausch Message: 4 Date: Mon, 12 Feb 2001 16:07:54 -0500 From: "Jack Madani" Subject: jilly's flipside Jilly's Flipside sounds a lot like The Battle Of New Orleans to me. jack Message: 5 Date: Wed, 14 Feb 2001 15:16:55 -0800 (PST) From: Paul MacArthur Subject: Motown Album Covers Okay, guys and gals, need your help. Recently a record executive made a bold claim in R&R when he said: "In the early days of Motown you never saw the artist on an album cover: you saw a white couple on a beach or blonde, blue eyed go-go dancers." So, I tried to locate some early coves and here's what I found: The Supremes were on the cover of Meet the Supremes (1963) and Where Did Our Love Go (1964). Mary Wells is pictured on the single "The One Who Really Loves You" (1962). On the back is a picture of Marvin Gaye. Temptations are on the cover of Meet the Temptations 1964 I just can't find any covers with the Blonde Haired, Blue Eyed Go-Go dancer covers on them. When I informed the record executive of this he said: "There were several early Temptations, Four Tops, Smokey & the Miracles, Contours ... to name a few of the releases.. Exact years? I don't have them immediately available but Billboard reference books circa 1960 - 1963 should reveal your answers." Is he right? If so, did it happen more often than with other artists? (For instance, the Beach Boys didn't appear on Surfin' USA. etc.) Did Motown put white people on the covers frequently? Or is this another urban legend? Did Motown really: Sing it Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud? If so, examples? But, if you could check through you're early Motown lps and let me know, I'd appreciate. Thanks a bunch, Paul MacArthur __________________________________________________ Album of the Week: Carla Helmbrecht BE COOL BE KIND Song of the Week: The Jam "In the Crowd" Book of the Week: Ray Bradbury Fahrenheit 451 Documentary of the Month: JAZZ __________________________________________________ Message: 6 Date: Thu, 15 Feb 2001 07:44:04 -0000 From: bg spradlin Subject: Re: Jill Gibson - It's as Easy As 1-2-3 I finally figured out to [play songs] to the Yahoo group site via the web browser and Jan & Dean's (Jan with Jill Gibson)"It's As Easy As 1-2- 3" is now in the "musica" folder. I tried sending it as a e-mail attachment but I guess it never got here. BTW does anyone have a clean sounding MP3 of Jan And Dean"s "Girl You're Blowing My Mind"? It was released on Warner Bros in 1968 and after hearing (a poor copy of) it I can't figure out why it wasnt a hit. PS; I hope to be adding more songs to GirlPop radio this week including the Jill Gibson version of "It"s As Easy as 1-2-3". I havent added to the playlist in more than 3 months because of family/work matters. Billy G.
