Music Night, June 8, 2012

More from the 70s, in part because it was a great time for American rock and in part because I ran out of time for this post. Mostly, though, it’s because I’ve always loved the music of Jackson Browne, especially when he was the one performing it. Or, as in this case, when he’s performing someone else’s music: Warren Zevon’s Poor Poor Pitiful Me. Enjoy.

      • Before them was Hullabaloo, Shindig, and in the afternoons, Where The Action Is.

      • And you could count on Ed Sullivan to have on one pop group each week, right after the guy spinning plates on sticks and Topo Gigot!

        Of course, there was American Bandstand, for us white folks, and Soul Train for the black folks (which I watched as much as I did Bandstand).

        • I watched both as well. And Ed Sullivan had a great show! Jackie Gleason, too, although I was only allowed to watch the intro of his show.

          And Dean Martin, with his cigarette and glass of some sort of alleged alcohol.

  6. Just got home – the Dangerous Brothers seem to have not killed each other or burned the house down….
