RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL _128 – "THE LOST TOP 40 HITS OF 1967"
This episode spotlights 40 lost hits from the year 1967. it was a magical time for music. Including some great records you never seem to hear on the radio, or the satellite or on anyone’s live stream anymore. And in a few instances, for very good reason.
Three of the tunes on our playlist for this episode reflect the number one subject on everybody’s minds in 1967 – the Vietnam War. We’ve also added a big hit by a comedian whose personal and professional downfall five decades later was no laughing matter. Then there’s the revival of a classic song dedicated to mothers everywhere that’s nowhere now because of its politically incorrect provenance and racially insensitive symbolism. Lots of songs from Hollywood movies are also on our musical menu. Plus, you’ll groove to a potpourri of pop, psychedelic, soul, dance, and novelty numbers that were all over your radio dial.
They’re all part of “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” show #128 – “The Top 40 Lost Hits Of 1967.” As always, our resident Rockologist Ken Deutsch will be along to give us a little historical perspective. And Radio Dave will have more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record.
