The Beatles In America - 1964 (2 Hours @ 59:00 or 54:00)

From Paul Ingles | 01:57:56

A lively two-hour montage of rare archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews on The Beatles' first U.S. grand tour. (Hour 1 can stand alone without second hour if you can't possibly place both at once - also, Hour 1 focuses on January-February 1964 / Hour 2 focuses on the Beatles summer tour of the US in August/September 1964 - so Hour 1 can go early in 2014, Hour 2 later in the year). Originally distributed by PRI, now available to all stations.

Beatleslogo_small When The Beatles arrived in the United States in February of 1964, no one could have anticipated the tremendous impact the band would have on the development of American popular music and pop culture. Paul Ingles hosts The Beatles in America - 1964 and takes listeners back to when The Beatles and America first got to know one another. This lively two-hour montage features rarely heard archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews with fans and reporters who were swept into The Beatles frenzy. Some of the recordings featured in this program haven't been played publicly in 40 years. They are available here because of Larry Kane and Art Schreiber, two reporters who made almost every stop of The Beatle's 1964 tour and had remarkable access to the band. Their interviews capture the boys'wonder, humor, and thoughtful analysis of the madness that was swirling around them and enveloping the nation. Ingles talks with historians and authors whose enthusiasm and excitement also reflects that phenomenal time. Naturally, The Beatles in America - 1964 includes plenty of hits from that year, but in true public radio form, it also showcases lesser-heard gems from early Beatle's albums that fans wore through. Join Paul Ingles for a thrilling walk down musical memory lane. Offered to PRI affiliates only in 2004. Now available to all public radio stations. Although produced for 40th anniversary of Beatles arrival in America, no specific mention of the anniversary is made so it plays as an evergreen of that remarkable first year of America's experience with the Beatles.

Each hour has an optional 5 minute "Segment 2" which can be deleted if you need a newscast friendly hour.

Sound Opinions Presents: 1967 – Rock & Roll Comes of Age

From Sound Opinions | Part of the Sound Opinions Specials series | 59:00

In this FREE, EVERGREEN one-hour program, Sound Opinions celebrates one of the most significant years in rock and roll. 1967 was the year that the recording studio as an instrument changed the way music is created; that the album as a united concept changed the way it is heard; that the festival experience remade the way music is celebrated live. Pop music became big business.

1967_logo_square_small If rock and roll was born in the 1950s, then by 1967-for better or worse-it had grown up. Sound Opinions celebrates this influential year in a one hour special: 1967: Rock & Roll Comes of Age.  Perhaps no year saw more pivotal changes that continue to resonate today. 1967 was the year that the recording studio as an instrument changed the way music is created; that the album as a united concept changed the way it is heard; that the festival experience remade the way music is celebrated live. Pop music became big business.

Tune in as Sound Opinions hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot explore landmark releases by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Love and the Velvet Underground. Out went the teen-driven single...in came the album as art. They also look back at the historic Monterey International Pop Festival-a coming out party for Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding that said to the world, "Rock and roll is here to stay." It's two renowned critics talking about one of the most important years in music. Guests include Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman, British invasion producer Joe Boyd and Monterey historian Harvey Kubernick.

So whether you are a casual music fan who remembers this era fondly, or an underground maven who wants to understand where it all started, join us for 1967: Rock & Roll Comes of Age.

Sound Opinions Presents: 1977 – The Year Punk Broke

From Sound Opinions | Part of the Sound Opinions Specials series | 59:00

In this FREE, EVERGREEN one-hour program, Sound Opinions celebrates one of the most significant years in rock and roll history. 1977’s punk explosion energized young musicians, scandalized their parents, and changed the music industry forever. Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot introduce listeners to the personalities, bands, and landmark records of this game-changing year, from The Ramones’ "Rocket to Russia," to The Talking Heads’ "77," to the Sex Pistols’ "Never Mind the Bollocks."

1977_prx_small

In 1977, punk rock went from an underground fringe movement to a full-blown mass culture phenomenon. Formerly unknown bands like The Ramones, The Clash and The Sex Pistols became mega-stars and released classic albums including Never Mind the Bollocks, The Clash, and Rocket to Russia. Kids in the U.S. and Europe responded to punk’s “do-it-yourself” message by starting their own bands regardless of musical ability. Parents, governments and the major labels stood on the sidelines, wondering what it all meant.

Few years in music history have seen more dramatic changes in attitude and sound than 1977. Now Sound Opinions presents the one-hour special: 1977: The Year Punk Broke.

Tune in as hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot explore punk’s development in both New York and London, touching on landmark bands and albums along the way. Punk journalist Ira Robbins takes listeners through New York’s CBGB’s, where bands like Television, The Ramones, and The Talking Heads formed punk’s first organized scene. Later music writer Jon Savage remembers London’s “punk explosion” and the historic single that got the Sex Pistols banned across the British media. Finally, Jim and Greg share some of their favorite tracks from 1977 by bands including Wire, The Adverts, and The Voidoids.

So whether you’re a veteran of the punk underground or simply a casual music fan wondering what all the fuss and safety pins are about, join us for 1977: The Year Punk Broke.

SITPE # 1236

From Stephen R Webb | Part of the Stuck in the Psychedelic Era series | 01:58:00

Riding the 1967 bell curve.

Piper_at_the_gates_of_dawn_small Since it's back to school time almost everywhere that Stuck in the Psychedelic Era is heard it seems only appropriate that we follow a bell curve for this week's mix. What that means is that of the 26 tracks on this week's show, exactly half are from 1967. The remaining 50% are split (as evenly as you can split an odd number) between 1966 and 1968. Of course that means there is nothing from 1964, 65, 69, or 70 this time around, but that just gives us something to look forward to next week (which we can already tell you has some rather odd sets).
