Did you ever have to make up your mind?
That wasn’t meant as a question…it was my way of cleverly introducing this post.
Baby-boomers and rock-and-roll fans of all ages probably sang the words while they read them…or they’re humming the tune right now (and probably will be for the next few hours).
Most of you know who sang them back in 1966, or you used to know, but the band’s name is on the tip of your tongue.
For the record…it was The Lovin’ Spoonful.
The Spoonful had a pretty impressive run between ’65 and ’68 which included seven Top 10 hits and another seven in the Top 100.
You might say they were hotter than a match head…
They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 –
Like many bands they also had their trials and tribulations…
Tomorrow night (Friday October 31, 2014) on my radio program I will have the bass player from the Spoonful – Steve Boone – live in the studio with me.
We’ll be talking about all kinds of stuff, and playing some music in-between topics – beginning at 7:00 pm EST.
Tune in if you believe in magic…
For those of you in Flagler Beach – you can listen on 97.3 FM and for the rest of the world, join us on the internet at www.flaglerbeachradio.com – you can also listen on your mobile device using the TuneIn app and searching Surf 97.3 FM.
If you’d like to ask Steve a question jump over to facebook and post it on the Tim Baker’s B-Sides, Deep Cuts and Cool Covers page.
As always – thank you for reading (and listening)
Greeting dudes and chicks!…Tonight’s the Night!!!
The first radio broadcast by The Castaways (Armand Rosamilia, Becky Pourchot and me) will air tonight – Friday, July 26 – from 7:00 – 10:00 pm on Surf 17!!!
Our program will be dedicated to the artistic and creative side of Flagler Beach and beyond.
Our first show was recorded Tuesday and considering we had no appreciable radio experience and no rehearsal time we had a blast. We had no idea what we were doing, but we stumbled through it anyway! Since it was our introductory show, we naturally took some time to introduce ourselves – and then we moved on to cover a range of topics from our personal writing preferences to some advice to aspiring writers.
Mixed in among the talk and the shenanigans we also played some good songs.
You can listen to us wherever you are simply by tuning in to www.flaglerbeachradio.com and you can even tune in on your smart phone with the radio play app of your choosing.
In the future we will be bringing you great information about – and interviews with – local writers, artists and all-around creative people…
Now that we’ve got the first show under our belts it’s a safe bet that we will have a blast every week.
All three of us want to thank Vern Shank for giving us a chance and also for coaching us through the process.
So tune in at 7:00 and check us out…at the very least you’ll get to hear Armand’s and Becky’s outrageous accents! (I, personally, have no discernible accent – sorry).
Don’t forget to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter!!
As always – thank you for reading…and listening
