Is not too late (is never too late) to reach out to Dan O'Day or somebody

SOWNY » Jerry and Frank » Today 6:39 pm

Frank D'Angelo gives the best interviews.  You never know what the guy will say or how he will boast about himself.

It's nice to see D'Angelo mentioned.  It looks like we have another Fangelo in the making.

Hold on...he could have interviewed Frank D'Angelo.  Now THAT would have been way worse.  Ask Cheese.

   Missed the intro so I heard a minute or so of Jerry Agar interviewing his pal Frank Leo on CFRB this morning.  Changed the station as soon as I realized.  I'm sure I missed a hard-hitting explosive chat between those 2.

I remember when Jim was the morning guy on Rock 95 in Barrie. He used his real last name back then. He is such a good guy and has had a great radio career.

I am lucky to have worked with him for 3 of his 20 years (and counting) at Newstalk.

Darn.  I also missed it.  I'm a believer in Frank Leo's system.

When I saw KSAN FM I did a bit of googling because that was one of the early classic free form stations. Looks like Art Laboe began on KSAN in 1943 but his current program is syndicated and available on on these stations:
Art Loboe Connection

Roger Ashby has some catchin' up to do

Art Laboe, who started his radio career in 1943, begins his 75th year as a radio DJ on Sunday at KSAN-FM. Laboe is 92, and still rocking.

I can only think of one other jock who was on the air for 70+ years, that was the late Hal Jackson who was on Washington and New York radio for 73 years (1939-2012). He was still on the air at age 96.

Not that they would ever want to go back to those shifts; but I always  felt that Oakley and Richards; when they did late night; on 'RB were at their best.  It was like early Letterman for the ears.

Based on what was happening at the time in 1969 the production of the song is not that unusual. The love your brother vibe was prevalent. The more sinister underpinnings were not grasped and I doubt they could have been predicted. Some were temporarily taken in. Neil Young spoke to Warners head Mo Ostin and asked him to give Manson a contract after he heard him at Dennis' house. Terry Melcher on the other hand was unimpressed from the beginning.

Yes. He wrote more songs that didn't make the cut. Many weirdos did, as they do now. Most music of the time was as shitty as it is now.

Dennis obviously knew before the killing spree that there was something wrong even though he was initially lured by the girls and the drugs. Here is a clip of the group performing Never Learn Not to Love on Mike Douglas in April 1969. No one at the time of course knew what was to come but it you listen to the lyrics carefully there are clues:
