5 They Won’t Play on the Radio

 Most Baby Boomers I talk to are fed up with “oldies” radio stations…what was once exciting and fun is now boring and bland…it’s sad, and I don’t care to dwell on it…except for the next few days, DFHC will be featuring a diverse mix of tunes…most of which the morons running things these days don’t think you ought to hear…but permit me to disagree…

(1)  Farmer’s Daughter/ Beach Boys

Farmer’s Daughter

Ever try to write a song? It’s amazing how good something so simple can sound…and how hard it is to put it together.

 

 

 

(2)  Farmer’s Daughter/Fleetwood Mac

Farmer’s other Daughter

Apparently, Fleetwood Mac appreciated the art of simpliticy, God bless ’em…

 

(3)  Lightning Never Strikes Twice/The Move

Never Strikes Twice

Along with the Beatles and the Kinks, the Move was one of the most creative of the 60s British bands…almost every record they made is fine. They had a long string of hits in the UK, but nada in the states until “Do Ya” in the early 70s, but by that time they were about to split into Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. and Roy Wood’s Wizzard…

(4)  Call Me Lightning/The Who

Da Who

This 45 came out in 1968 but incredibly flopped…thus isn’t included on any of the Who’s “Greatest Hits” collections…so in a sense, if you’ve never heard it, it’s a “new oldie”…

 

 

 

 

CLEMENTINE

(5)  Bobby Darin/Clementine

Just one example of the wonderful fun back when radio was radio…

 

 

shameless plugs going out to Yvonne and Yvette in Utopia City…
