Tuesday 12/19/06 Eli Polonsky - Phil Ochs tribute

This show was a birthday tribute to legendary folk artist and musical activist Phil Ochs, who was born on December 19'th 1940, and tragically took his own life on April 9'th, 1976. Phil left us a legacy of music ranging from outspoken songs labeled "topical" or "protest", many of which are (unfortunately) just as relevant today as when he wrote and sang them in the 1960's and early 70's, to more sublime and introspective reflections on life and the world around him, which are timeless and universal.

We were joined by telephone by Phil's sister Sonny Ochs, who produces the "Remembering Phil Ochs Song Night" concert series in which a group of excellent contemporary folk artists pay tribute to Phil's music. I'd like to thank Sonny for sharing her memories and reflections about Phil and his music with us throughout this entire show!

Also, we heard some excerpts from a historic interview with Phil Ochs conducted on December 1'st, 1966 on a program called "Coffeehouse Theater" here at the WTBS (now WMBR) studios, from an old reel-to-reel tape which I dug out of the station archives.

All songs below are Phil Ochs compositions.

01. Phil Ochs - "I'm Going To Say It Now" (from "In Concert" LP 1966)

02. Modern Folk Quartet - "The Bells" - adaptation by Ochs of poem by Edgar Allan Poe (outtake from 1964 "Changes" LP played from Rhino CD compilation "Troubadours Of The Folk Era")

03. Eric Andersen - "I Ain't Marching Anymore" (from "The Street Was Always There" CD 2004)

04. Carolyn Hester - "What's That I Hear" (from "At Town Hall II" LP 1965)

05. Julie Felix - "Days Of Decision" (from "Second Album" LP 1965)

06. Chad Mitchell Trio - "Draft Dodger Rag" (from "Slightly Irreverent" LP 1964)

07. Judy Collins - "In The Heat Of The Summer" (from "5'th Album" LP 1965)

Excerpt from Phil Ochs radio interview WTBS 12/1/66

08. Phil Ochs - "Pleasures Of The Harbor" (title track 1967 LP)

Excerpt from Phil Ochs radio interview WTBS 12/1/66

09. Phil Ochs - "Cops Of The World" (from "In Concert" LP 1966)

Excerpt from Phil Ochs radio interview WTBS 12/1/66

10. Anita Bryant - "The Power And The Glory" (from "Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory" 1965 LP played from WTBS 1966 radio interview tape)

Excerpt from Phil Ochs radio interview WTBS 12/1/66

11. Ian & Sylvia - "Changes" (from "Play One More" LP 1966)

12. Jim & Jean - "Changes" (from "Changes" stereo LP 1966)

13. Phil Ochs Anti-Drug PSA (from "Get Off" 1973 celebrity anti-drug radio PSA LP)

14. Jim & Jean - "Crucifixion" (from "Changes" stereo LP 1966)

15. Joan Baez - "There But For Fortune" (from "Joan Baez 5" LP 1964)

16. Phil Ochs - "When I'm Gone" (from "In Concert" LP 1966)

Thanks again to Sonny Ochs for joining us for this entire program! It's Larry Miller's turn next Tuesday, and I'll be back in two weeks on January 2, 2007. I hope you all have happy, healthy, low-stress holidays!

Thanks for listening,

Bob Dubrow Shamelessly Promotes Label Showcases









I admit it, I'm cheating here by promoting something that has nothing to do with the Lost & Found show or era. Kimchee is a record label I've been intimately involved with for 10 years, and there are two nights of live music in Boston clubs commemorating that fact coming up soon. Here's the facts, Jack!

Friday, December 29, 2006 at The Middle East Upstairs, Cambridge, MA
(Doors open at 8:30)
12:20 - 12:55 Thalia Zedek
11:30 - 12:05 The Paula Kelley Orchestra
10:40 -11:15 Willard Grant Conspiracy
9:50 - 10:25 Chris Brokaw
9:00 - 9:35 Heidi Saperstein

Friday January 5, 2007 at T.T. the Bear's Place, Cambridge, MA
(Doors open at 8:30)
12:20 - 12:50 Tiger Saw

December 5, 2006 playlist - Eli Polonsky

Because I was recovering from a terrible cold, and because I had to work overnights at my paying job both the nights before and the night after this show, I decided to take it easy and ask for suggestions for long tracks to play.

Everything played in this show was by request, if not for the track itself, at least for something by the artist. It's great that WMBR allows the freedom to do this, it makes doing volunteer radio well worthwhile! Thanks to everyone who came through with great suggestions, and sorry for all of those I couldn't get to!

01. It's A Beautiful Day - Time Is
02. Cream - Toad (Live at Fillmore East)
03. Buffalo Springfield - Bluebird (long LP version)
04. Poco - Nobody's Fool/El Tonto De Nadie Regressa
05. Grateful Dead - China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider
(From Dick's Picks #31 - 8/4/74 Philadelphia Civic Center)
06. Flash - Small Beginnings
07. Al Kooper - Bury My Body
08. Leon Russell - Jumping Jack Flash/Youngblood
(Live from The Concert For Bangladesh - 1971)
09. Quicksilver Messenger Service - Gold And Silver
10. Neil Young - Down By The River

Next Tuesday the 12'th it's Larry Miller's turn to bring back the psychedelic and folkadelic era, and I'll be back on the 19'th with a special memorial birthday tribute to Phil Ochs, and perhaps some "Lost & Found" sounds of the season.

Thanks for listening,
