50 Years Ago this Month – Questions by Donovan

Still looking for answers ...

But I say, the 1960s were not an answer, they were the question... and it still holds particularly about the way we are treating the planet ~ Donovan. 

And so, we celebrate Earth Day April 22nd – which just happens to be a “Full Pink Moon” as well. Cool.

You know what else is cool? 50 Years Ago this MonthBFYP Rockin’ DJ, Ken Chase (aka Mike Korgan) produced the ultimate party song, “Louie Louie.” April 11th marks International “Louie Louie” Day, and It hit #8 on the WILS/Lansing (MI) Top Twenty survey, April 27, 1966!

You can likely still find a copy or two of “Louie Louie” and other top tens of the day, at your neighborhood vinyl record store. Hopefully, not too many scratches on the grooves for “Good Lovin’” (Young Rascals) and the Mamas & Papas’ “Monday, Monday.”

Maybe you’ll even catch ‘em on sale – ‘cause April 16th is Record Store Day. Remember how we used to swing to the beat on the Radio, then hightail it down to our fave record store on our Schwinns? Thank your local pioneering Rock Radio DJs for their service …

Is that all there is? Heck no! Then … Let’s keep dancin’ April 23rd is National Dance Day! So put your boogie on and let’s groove to the beat, baby.

Featured Radio Survey: Of course, I have an original WILS April 27, 1966, record chart! DJs Bob Carey and Gene Healy ruled the airwaves and spun the platters in Lansing. Enjoy the Moment … Again.

Let's take this on outta here … Let's go!

Celebrate this month 50 years ago and … Rock On!
