Collaborative rock scholarship hosted by Cristy Scoggins and William Gillespie, as a discussion forum to accompany our radio show Rock Geek FM and website rockgeekchic.com. We are rock scholars, writers, and radio show hosts who wish only to share the TRUTH with the internet-enabled world.
Neal Cassady Chair of Psychedelic Folk Art Philip Graham and Professor of Rockthropology Alma Gottlieb lead Cristy and William through some of the uncharted early albums of the nexus of the cultural myth known as the “Summer of Love.” Learn which ruthless, murderous dictator the pacifist Country Joe was named after, and which band member went on to be a voice actor for the Smurfs. And lots of great music eclipsed in the shadow of the Grateful Dead and Woodstock.
All recorded in an authentic underground basement. Download here or listen below:
Tonight on Rock Geek F.M., Cristy and I will play a radio show dedicated to songs named after years, with a special emphasis on the 1970s. (Stooges-1970, Genesis, Robyn Hitchcock, Connells-1974, Clash, Kool Keith, Nada Surf-1977, Tar Babies-1979). The show will start in 1914 (Zombies) and continue through 2525 (Zager and Evans) all the way to 3030 (Deltron). Any requests? Tune in take a trip through history.
