This year's Mixtape Series has truly been a blast to put together with the only bottleneck deciding what order the topics decided upon should roll out. This episode is not a strict Summer Of Love set due to the fact I was 12 in 1967. And yes I clearly remember experiencing this music for the first time at that age. I was already set as far as what I wanted to do with my life, and music had to be part of the equation. A rough guide to the years covered here would be 1966-1971, and AM was still being listened to but drum lessons were beginning and the Freeform era was soon to be my main drug of choice, with WBGO from Newark covering Jazz. There was now a pad and pen near the radio to fill a list of interesting sounds, with a decision made to toss the large cartons of Baseball cards out and make more room for records. My Mother had nothing to do with it, I clearly remember carrying the three large boxes to the curb and stacking them next to the garbage cans. I would only collect records from this point, what could I do with Baseball Cards? If I only knew at the time that their value would have made a nice down payment on a house 20+ years later. At least three more episodes of this series will be forthcoming with The Laurel Canyon/Singer Songwriter period, A Punk/Powerpop/New Wave/Alternative show focusing on fun years 1984-90 birthing WHTG at The Jersey Shore and an “Anything Goes” personal favorite Summer Tunes of all time episode. If you have suggestions, get them in ASAP. We’re leaning toward the WHTG type show coming next… but you never know. Thanks for everything.

This is not a political show. But I am compelled to make this missive just that as I need to get it off my chest. The full text will only be published on my personal web site due to understanding that there’s already too much noise but I simply had to get it out. If that’s where you are and you want to ignore my rant, not a problem at all, skip to the next horizontal line after this.
