The Byrds (part 1): There is a Season

From Joyride Media | Part of the The Byrds: There is a Season / Farther Along series | 59:05

The first of two one-hour documentaries on The Byrds, covering 1964 to 1967: the hitmaking years of the band's original five members.

Tambourine_small The first of two one-hour documentaries on The Byrds, the continuously groundbreaking band who bridged the gaps between The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, the Beach Boys, the Los Angeles psychedelic underground and classic country. Their memorable music set the stage for everyone from the Eagles to Tom Petty to R.E.M. Each hour is hosted by singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell, and covers a distinct period of their prolific history that can either be aired as one two-part series, or as your choice of two insightful one-hour programs.

THERE IS A SEASON covers 1964-1967, the all-too-brief hitmaking years of the Byrds' original five members - Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke. They were an electrified folk band who topped the charts with some of the decades' most innovative singles and albums. By 1967, their musical harmony was engulfed by the off-stage disharmony that pushed them to reach those heights. Instead of being directed by the singular vision of one leader, The Byrds were consistently led by everybody's contributions - from their original five members to the musicians involved with their later years.

Despite the inner turmoil that resulted in a revolving cast of characters, the Byrds always used those changes as opportunities to further their musical evolution. "They all brought something new and something defining," says journalist David Fricke, "and it all became part of the Byrds sound. They didn't change the Byrds to the degree that it changed the sound. What they did became the Byrds."

Both segments feature the wide range of music that made The Byrds of the 60s most influential bands, along with comments by its two longest-lasting members: Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman. Writers David Fricke, Anthony DeCurtis, Lenny Kaye and Byrds historian Sid Griffin are also interviewed.

The Byrds (part 2): Farther Along

From Joyride Media | Part of the The Byrds: There is a Season / Farther Along series | 59:05

The Second of two one-hour documentaries on The Byrds, covering 1968 to 1972: the groundbreaking country-rock years.

Unissued_small The second of two one-hour documentaries on The Byrds, the continuously groundbreaking band who bridged the gaps between The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, the Beach Boys, the Los Angeles psychedelic underground and classic country. Each hour is hosted by singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell, and covers a distinct period of their prolific history that can either be aired as one two-part series, or as your choice of two insightful one-hour programs. FARTHER ALONG picks up the story in 1968 and details how the Byrds' legendary Act I was followed by one of rock history's most fascinating second acts. Despite their lower record sales, the Byrds' later incarnations alternately defined and re-defined "country-rock," thanks to the influential contributions by folks like Gram Parsons and guitarist Clarence White. As with the first segment, FARTHER ALONG feature the wide range of music that made The Byrds of the 60s most influential bands, along with comments by its two longest-lasting members: Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman. Writers David Fricke, Anthony DeCurtis, Lenny Kaye and Byrds historian Sid Griffin are also interviewed. Instead of being directed by the singular vision of one leader, The Byrds were consistently led by everybody's contributions - from their original five members to the musicians involved with their later years. "They all brought something new and something defining," says journalist David Fricke, "and it all became part of the Byrds sound. They didn?t change the Byrds to the degree that it changed the sound. What they did became the Byrds." Broadcast Window: Begins late September 2006, available for all USA radio broadcasters at no cost. 9/30 update: In addition to the 0:59 version posted on the audio page, there is also a 0:54 "news-hole" show in two parts - a 1:00 billboard and the 53:00 program.

Eric was given his first steel-string acoustic guitar at age seven. Growing up surrounded by talent in the Greenwich Village folk scene, he recalls a childhood conversation with Bob Dylan, who, on the subject of guitar playing, advised the 11-year-old Bibb to "Keep it simple, forget all that fancy stuff.” When Bibb was 16 years old, his father invited him to play guitar in the house band for his TV talent show Someone New. In 1969, aged 19, he left for Paris, where he met guitarist Mickey Baker who focused his interest on blues guitar.

Smiley LewisSmiley Lewis

There are so many forgotten legends along Rhythm & Blues' evolutionary highway. This week, the "Juke In The Back" looks at the great Smiley Lewis, another influential force out of New Orleans that time has chosen to forget. Lewis was born Overton Lemons, but took the name "Lewis" along with the nickname "Smiley" which poked fun at his missing teeth. He played the New Orleans clubs and cut his first single for DeLuxe Records in 1947. After it failed to go anywhere, Lewis was fortunate enough to fall into admiration of bandleader and Imperial Records talent scout, Dave Bartholomew. After signing to Imperial in 1950, it would be 2 years before Lewis would have his first national hit with "The Bells Are Ringing." He'd fail to chart again for another 3 years even though his recordings were jumpin', catchy and selling well in New Orleans and the South. 1955 saw his biggest success with the #2 R&B smash, "I Hear You Knockin'." He'd have 2 more R&B hits before his star faded by 1957. Lewis recorded many Bartholomew compositions, such as the original "Blue Monday" and "One Night," but Fats Domino (another of Bartholomew's discoveries) and Elvis would have hits with those songs respectively. Bartholomew once called Smiley Lewis a "hard luck singer," due to the fact that didn't have an extended career, even though he laid down some of the greatest tunes of the 1950s. Matt The Cat spins those 78s on this week on the "Juke In The Back."

391px-portrait_of_billy_eckstine__new_york__n This week on the show, we’re celebrating the renowned jazz baritone Billy Eckstine. Eckstine had what one writer has described as “a deep blue dream of a voice,” and he was a cultural pioneer as well, becoming one of the first black male solo singers to find success singing love songs. Eckstine also led a modernist big band that’s become legendary as an incubator for the revolutionary bebop movement of the 1940s. We’ll hear some of his notable recordings from the 1940s through the 1960s.
