Background music by Magical Power Mako - Super Record 1975

All the following tracks are from Radioactive Records CD many are actually authorized by the artists is the big question. This is #4 in a series of programs showcasing music from this label. (The others ran in Dec 05, Jan 06, and Mar 06. See disclaimer at bottom of playlist for more info.)

3. Vulcan's Hammer - Track 10 - Title Unknown (True Hearts and Sound Bottoms 1973)

Outro: Dryewater - "Let Me Take You" (Southpaw 1974)

Disclaimer: I have recently been made aware that it is quite likely that Radioactive is in the habit of illegally producing these CDs without permission from the artists. More than a handful of bands whose music has been put out on the label have made this claim. It has been said that much of their product is made via "unsanctioned needle drops": i.e. illegitimately processed from clean vinyl as opposed to the master tapes. So the moral question I sit here with is: Having come to this knowledge, should I be promoting the label by playing their goods on air?

And I have decided I am too much a music whore to ignore this music (which I always win on Ebay at reduced prices), very much still want to continue to share it with others via radio, and know of no other way to afford its purchase (original vinyl copies? Oh come now!). I will therefore continue to play these CDs while supplying a disclaimer during the show as to the potential for their dubious provenance. And will stick this particular disclaimer on each playlist of shows dedicated to the Radioactive label.

Comments are welcome re: this ethical dilemma!

May 31, 2006 - Eli Polonsky sitting in

(R) = By request
(N) = New release/reissue

The first set was in anticipation of (and partially intended to be background music for) a scheduled telephone interview with Carl Palmer, drummer with Emerson, Lake & Palmer (also previously with Atomic Rooster and "The Crazy World of Arthur Brown", and later, Asia).

It turned out that he was unavailable at the scheduled time, so chalk that one down as a missed interview. That's the risk of scheduling these things. Most of them usually come through and actually happen, but there are always a few that don't. He did, however, put on an excellent show with his band at the Regent Theatre in Arlington.

01. Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Abaddon's Bolero
02. Emerson, Lake & Palmer - The Barbarian
03. Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Aquatarkus (Live)
04. The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Fanfare/Fire Poem
05. The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Fire (R)
(Note: Carl Palmer was not the drummer on this album with the original hit version of "Fire". He joined Brown for the tour in late 1968 and 1969).
06. Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Tank

A couple more from the "British progressive" genre:
07. Nektar - Desolation Valley/Waves
08. Hawkwind - Space Is Deep

09. Jimi Hendrix Experience - Love Or Confusion
10. Jefferson Airplane - Crown Of Creation (N) = (new reissue "The Worst Of Jefferson Airplane" - BMG/Legacy)
11. Eric Burdon & The Animals - Sky Pilot (R)
12. Jeff Beck (w/Rod Stewart) - Morning Dew (R)
13. Love - Robert Montgomery (R)
14. Hot Tuna - Sunrise Dance With The Devil (N) = (new compilation "The Very Best Of Hot Tuna - Keep On Truckin'" - BMG/Legacy)
15. Old & In The Way - Midnight Moonlight (R)
16. Merl Saunders & Jerry Garcia - After Midnight (N) = (new compilation "The Best Of Merl Saunders & Jerry Garcia - Well Matched" - Fantasy Records)

For the birthday of John "Bonzo" Bonham (1948 - 1980):
17. Donovan - Hurdy Gurdy Man (w/Bonham, Jimmy Page & John Paul Jones)
18. Led Zeppelin - Bonzo's Montreaux
19. Led Zeppelin - When The Levee Breaks

20. Them w/Van Morrison - Mystic Eyes

There will be a smorgasbord of various WMBR guest DJ's sitting in on the Wednesday edition of "Lost & Found" during this summer season, and WMBR being all-volunteer radio, I will be back occasionally as my personal time allows. If you'd like to get on my personal mailing list to let you know of my occasional appearances on the radio, feel free to e-mail me at any time.

Happy almost-summer,
