EGC Clambake For July 2, 2006

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for July 2, 2006.

I talk about my break between jobs and why there weren’t a spate of shows in that time; I play a song by Camper Van Beethoven; I talk about the grand opening of the KISS coffeehouse; I non-recommend Nacho Libre and slightly recommend Million Dollar Baby; I play a song by MC Oral B; I play audio comments – Garrick van Buren on the corporatization of public radio, Ted Riecken on net neutrality, and Eddie Dickey on baby boomers; I play a live song by Edith Frost

The name I couldn’t remember for this episode: the cheezy fake psychic dude I was trying to remember was the Amazing Kreskin.

  1. Taking the Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s of it’s pedestal. Hmm, agreed. I always felt the Beatles were over-rated anyhow. I’m one year ahead of Eddie(’59), I agree with your observation that the best of lists are greatly skewed. I would opt for XTC Skylarking a Beatles influenced band over Sgt. Pepper’s any day of the week.

  2. Man, I haven’t listened to Sgt Peppers since the 80’s! But you are right about the numbers – we are a huge number of people – and that has had a huge affect on the culture. I’ll do another audio reply or maybe reply on my podcast. Beyond music, the retirement of the boomers and the great cash-out of the market coupled with payments from pensions and Social Security and Medicare liability… well – I’m getting in shape and plan to stay healthy!

    And in 1965, I remember – ‘Listen to the Rythm of the falling rain’ and ‘The Ballad of the Green Beret’ on the radio..

  3. I’ve never been much of a fan of the Beatles later work and haven’t listened to Let It Be, Abbey Road or The White Album since the 80s. After listening to this episode I decided to dig out the cassettes and listen to them. I think I’ll stick to the early more rockabillyish stuff. Revolver and Rubber Soul are infinitely better than those other three albums.
