I am the host of the “Sunday Naked Brunch” which is an old school classic rock radio show. Tune in Sunday’s @ 9 AM EST on 88.7 FM (Northern New Jersey) and everywhere else @ gobrave.org. The show has been on for over 10 years and celebrates the lesser known songs and bands of the 60’s and 70’s. I mix in some familiar Classic Rock tunes, toss in some Motown, Bubblegum and finish it up with a good dose of Prog Rock and you have “Sunday Naked Brunch”. Tell all your family, friends, relatives and enemies about the show. Once they tune in or log on, they will be glad they did and will be coming back for more.

After being recorded in just one take, The Animals' “House of the Rising Sun” entered the UK chart at #16. The next week, it was at #3 and seven days later it rose to number one. To promote the group in the US, disc jockeys were sent boxes of animal crackers wrapped with special promotional material.
Tommy James And The Shondells started a two week run at #1 on the US singles chart with “Hanky Panky” A Pittsburgh DJ had begun playing the two year old recording and regional record sales had reached over 80,000. James called the members of his now defunct band, but they were no longer interested. He recruited a group called The Raconteurs to be the new Shondells and took the master tape of “Hanky Panky” to Roulette Records, who released it. Tommy would later say, “One night I was playing for 20 drunks in a bar in Michigan, and the next night I’m playing for 10,000 screaming fans in Pittsburgh. It was literally overnight.”
The Beatles' film, Yellow Submarine debuted in theatres this week. The Fab Four weren’t originally too keen about the picture, but after seeing elements of the cartoon, liked it enough to make a cameo appearance at the end. The voices in the film were actually actors and not The Beatles themselves.
The Moody Blues opened their own 32 track recording studio in London. It was the first in Britain to be equipped for quadraphonic recording, a now almost-forgotten form of stereo which required a playback system with four speakers.
Steve Martin’s novelty tune “King Tut” became a hit record, nearly three months after it was featured in a skit on TV’s Saturday Night Live. Some of the backing musicians on the track, who called themselves the Toot Uncommons, were actually members of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
Harry Chapin was killed in an accident on the Long Island Expressway. Chapin’s blue 1975 VW Rabbit burst into flames when it was hit from behind by a tractor-trailer truck.
Santana celebrates their 20th anniversary at a concert in San Francisco that features a jam with all previous members of the band.
