1 O'clock Break

(In spite of the fact that this set is not really the usual "Lost and Found" rare and obscure kind of stuff, I got a lot of calls from people who said that it really took them back to 1972, and they loved it. I also got calls from several L&Fers who reminded me that these hit tunes can be heard elsewhere on the dial...
Hal sez: "1972 was the year before my senior year in high school, and WABC in NYC is what I would have been listening to if I hadn't discovered WNEW with Scott Muni and the great Vin Scelsa. Some of what you're playing brings back good memories and some is just... scary! We *liked* this?! Sheesh."
I had mixed feelings about all this, as I was trapped in radio hell in a little AM station on the outskirts of San Diego back in'72 and was forced to play these "hits" and other similar songs over and over again everyday for 6 months. Freaked me out... )

Onward: the Syd Barret Memorial Set

Pink Floyd: "Interstellar Overdrive" (studio version: this was found on my favorite Russian MP3 site on one of the PF rarities compilations. It's a good deal longer (16:45)than the album version (9:55) on Piper at the Gates of Dawn, and good deal different.)
Syd Barrett: "No Good Trying" (from The Madcap Laughs)
"It Is Obvious" (from Barrett)
Pink Floyd: "Wish you Were Here"

and now for something entirely different...

Twice as Much: "Sitting on a Fence"
Rolling Stones: "Complicated" (from Between the Buttons)
Pretty Things: "Don't Bring Me Down"
Beatles: "She's A Woman"
Small Faces: "Itchy Koo Park"
The Move: "Fire Brigade"
Chocolate Watchband: "Lat's Talk About Girls"
Family: "Burlesque"

So long, goodbye. see you next time...

Pink Floyd: "Come In Number 51, Your Time is Up" (Zabriskie Point Soundtrack, the part where the groovy house in the desert blows up in slow motion...)
