About Us

this podcast is going to be all about 60's music. the goal with this podcast is to educate a younger generation on one of the greatest decades of music of all time, and the to prove to people that Millennials can love 60's music as well and it's not just for Baby boomers. Each week I"m going to review one song by one artist from the 60's and split the podcast into two halfs. first half is going to be my perspective and my opinion on the song and why I think it's so good or why I don't think it's so great. then I'm going to talk about the history behind the group or artist that did the song and talk about the behind the scenes industry people and places that helped make it a hit (writers and producers, session musicians and band members and recording studios and chart positions, etc.) I will occasionally interview industry people from back then either over the phone or in person to give you a better glimpse of how the business worked back then and how much has changed since then, and to educate younger people on their careers and the songs they made famous to the people listening that may not be familiar with their music at all.

Interview Episode 7: Andy Paley

Today's episode of my podcast is a interview Episode with somebody a little different then what I normally do for my podcast. the guy I'm interviewing today isn't necessarily a songwriter or producer from that era per say but he has worked with legendary songwriters and producers from the 60's and was in a duo with somebody that made music that even though it was recorded in the late 70's very much had that early to mid 60's sound as far as production and arrangement is concerned. He also is the current bandleader for a guy who is world renown for his cartoon voice over work, and on the side, he also has his own band where he does loads of 60's tunes in it. A lot of the songs I talk about in today's interview episode are songs I will talk about in future episodes of this podcast, so a lot of them won't be added to the official Spotify playlist for the podcast because I don't really want to add the same songs twice when I will be covering them again in future episodes of my show, but...

Episode 63 Part 2: J Frank Wilson & the Cavaliers.

in This week's episode, I talk about the crazy story behind last week's song. now last week's song might have been a one hit wonder, but it definitely has a long and interesting story behind it. Everything from the events that might have inspired the song to who actually originally wrote it and the story behind the song's famous recording session and what happened after the song was originally recorded and released. I also mention how this song has been able to live a life of it's own when it was covered by a band about 3 decades after it was originally released and they turned the song into a hit all over again and by doing that, they introduced the song to a whole new generation of people who may have never heard the song when it originally came out in the 60's.

This week's episode is all about one of my all time favorite 60's solo artists, and in this week's episode, I break down one of his best and most under appreciated songs.

Episode 63 Part 2: J Frank Wilson & the Cavaliers.

in This week's episode, I talk about the crazy story behind last week's song. now last week's song might have been a one hit wonder, but it definitely has a long and interesting story behind it. Everything from the events that might have inspired the song to who actually originally wrote it and the story behind the song's famous recording session and what happened after the song was originally recorded and released. I also mention how this song has been able to live a life of it's own when it was covered by a band about 3 decades after it was originally released and they turned the song into a hit all over again and by doing that, they introduced the song to a whole new generation of people who may have never heard the song when it originally came out in the 60's.
