Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Graduation Day” by The Beach Boys


The Four Freshman took this song to the top twenty back in 1956 and the Wilson brothers were listening. And while The Beach Boys certainly were influenced by the Freshmen, the Freshmen were in turn influenced by vocal groups of the Big Band Era like The Pied Pipers and The Modernaires, as well as the […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “I Can’t Put My Finger On It” by Ween


I post this track with heavy heart as the news broke today that one of my all-time favorite bands have decided to pack it in for good. I’ve been a WEEN fan since the early 1990s and have seen Dean (Mickey Melchiondo) and Gene (Aaron Freeman) numerous times over the years. I could have seen […]

Vinyl Schminyl Radio Classic Deep Cut 5-30-12

songs key life

A great song from Stevie Wonder from the height of the disco era but was not a disco song during disco week here on the podcast. Songs in the Key of Life is the 18th album by American recording artist Stevie Wonder, released September 28, 1976, on Motown Records. It was the culmination of his […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Ram On” by Paul & Linda McCartney


“Ram” is one of my all-time favorite albums…pretty close to the top of the heap in my estimation. I just listened to the newly released vinyl mono mix of this record today for the first time. The mono mix hasn’t been in circulation since its original release as a radio station promo back in 1971. […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Cops Of The World” by Phil Ochs


OK, so the cops did a pretty good job during the NATO Summit in Chicago last weekend. While crowd control was needed in a few instances, the police handled it by using their heads first and then their force. This song comes from an era when cops were considered pigs, and in some cities…in some […]

Vinyl Frontier: Retro Reviews: David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars


By John the Secretary   ….In the early 1970’s David Bowie was starting to make waves after nearly five years of trying to make his mark in music. ‘Space Oddity’ had given him a deliciously topical hit in the late sixties but ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ had not given him the much craved momentum he […]

Happy Memorial Day everyone. This week is Disco week on the podcast…no not disco songs per se but songs that came out during the disco era of 1975-79 by our classic rock artists that gave them a disco feel to them. Today we start with the Eagles..a great symbol of America. The bird not the […]


Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Freeway Jam” by Jeff Beck


Nothing prepared rock fans for the transformation that took place in the mid-70s when Jeff Beck joined forces with producer George Martin on his albums “Blow By Blow” and “Wired.” Beck, of course, was well known as the blues-based British rocker from the Yardbirds and The Jeff Beck Group who dabbled in jazz, but cut […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Quarantined” by Atlas Sound


Up until a few days ago, I had heard of Atlas Sound but never heard them. Andrew Freedman, a Facebook friend of mine whose father was a good concert buddy of mine in the 1970s, posted this on his page as one of his “Daily Music” posts. When I pushed play, I was promptly whisked […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Outside Now” by Frank Zappa


I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Frank Zappa’s “Joe’s Garage” records. As usual, Zappa’s heart was in the right place when it came to issues like government control, censorship and organized religion, and he certainly could play guitar. But I never really got off on Zappa’s scatological and somewhat immature lyrical side. “Joe’s Garage” […]
