Hopelessly hooked on the series of Absolute Radio stations now, and I'm switching between 60s, 70s and 80s.

It's making regular radio harder to listen to in the car.

How do you get Absolute over there? And yeah, I feel your frustration. I kept wondering why they were playing Oasis on 60s until I realised the problem. I just download the Frank Skinner podcasts now, as that was what I was mostly listening to it for.

I think it's a pirate stream. I definitely can't listen to Absolute at their official site in the US.

You can listen on their iPhone app, that's what I use. But I'm able to use their site as well, I've recorded many a radio show on my Mac streaming from their site.

I don't have an iPhone, unfortunately. Huh, I was getting an error message for my country at their site. How are you able to access it (feel free to PM me if you'd rather)?

Tune In is great for radio stations, available online at tunein.com. Can access thousands of radio stations throughout the world without any problems - might be different in the US but can get US stations easily enough here.

^^ Yeah, that was the second option I tried, but Absolute wasn't available that way either. I'll just count my blessings I found what I did as I listen to Geoff Lloyd.

Why do all these bands play at these Fillmore places?

Largely because the promoter of Fillmore East (NYC) and the two Fillmore venues in San Fran was Bill Graham, one of the most influential rock promoters of the '60s and '70s. Graham had a lot of pull in the music industry at that time, and had a lot of influence with the top rock bands of the day, plus the acoustics at the Fillmore were (from what I know) excellent, so that explains why you frequently see "(Fill in the blank) live at Fillmore East/West."

Fillmore was good because you could book the East and West and do a few shows at each.  Bill Graham was really the rock concert producer of the 60s-70s.  He successfully managed more than a couple groups' tours.  Big groups, like the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.  In Thomas Wolfe's 'The Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test', he chronicles one group of Bill's concerts - the acid tests.  If you don't already know, they were concerts where they just passed around jugs of juice laced with lsd, and sometimes the Dead would play at one end of the Fillmore (West) and the Airplane would play the other end.  When you consider over 90% of the people, including some of the band members, were tripping, it sounds like an...interesting...experience.

I've avoided posting here when I'm listening to the ipod/itunes in alphabetical order lately, because I felt like I was maybe overdoing it a bit, but I think that enough time has passed for one little update.

 

Was:

Crying, Waiting, Hoping (Live At The BBC) - The Beatles

Crying, Waiting, Hoping (Decca audition, January 1, 1962) - The Beatles

The Crystal Ship - The Doors

The Crystal Ship (1985 remaster) - The Doors

The Cuckoo - Rory Gallagher

 

Currently:

Cuddle Up - The Beach Boys

 

Up next:

Cumberland Blues - Grateful Dead

Cumberland Blues (Live) - Grateful Dead

Cupid/Take This Hammer (A Toot And A Snore In '74 bootleg) - John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Cupid's Dead - Extreme

Cursed Diamond - The Black Crowes

Curses, Invocations - The Doors

Custard Pie - Led Zeppelin

 

I'm about 1800 songs in out of a total of 9589.  Getting through one rotation of alphabetical order can and has taken me more than a year before.  If I listened nonstop, it would take me twenty-seven days.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

Picked up an Alison Kraus cd on a spur of the moment impulse and listening to it in the background (quite enjoyable it is too). Anyone a song i heard ages ago and liked but never knew who it was has come on.

Have you ever seen the movie that's the soundtrack to? It's really really good. 

The soundtrack's pretty great too. My favorite is I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow.
