Rock Radio SEPTEMBER 1971 What Color’s Your World

Colour My World, Ms. Maggie 

LR / BFYP NOTE: While I’d love to have been more organized with this month’s article, it just didn’t happen. Sigh … so it is not yet finished, and sadly, there’s a chance it may not be complete until September 3rd.
       So, here’s a taste of what’s up for September so far … the Featured Radio Survey from KING Radio, Seattle, Washington, is your teaser. The rest will be finished soon … don’t touch that dial!

Work in progress … 

Rockin’ News & Views ~ Then & Now 

>Then: September 1971
The Jackson 5’s “Maybe Tomorrow” dropped from #6 to #18 on WJET/Eerie, Pennsylvania’s “Top 50 Survey” the first week of September. It preceded by a week, their new, short-lived cartoon series debut …

September 11th: The Jackson 5ive joined ABC’s Saturday morning cartoon line-up without much assistance from the band. The purely fictional antics of The Jackson 5ive made a debut splash for kiddies but left the air about a year later, as Michael stepped out into the solo world.
A 1976-‘77 live musical variety show, The Jacksons, gave fans a more personal peek into most of the Jackson kids’ personalities … though that too, didn’t last long, as Michael began to stray from family to devote more time to his solo projects.

>Now: September 2021
So much of Rock & Roll pulls from earlier music genres, blending, swirling, incorporating and that of course, includes Classical music. So this month let’s celebrate Classical Music Month and its influence on Rock & Roll!
       Pianos and flutes have long been part of many music genres and this month’s “Colour My World,” Monthly Song of Note carries incredible solos for both … yes, in Rock & Roll.

            More coming …
