No one ever commented on Funky Kingston or 54-46, by The Maytels , both before 73
and I just think Funky Kingston is a great track ... what do you think,
could it not be considered for the play list ? NIX .......

Okay, I gave them a listen, Dill.  It's not that they aren't good tracks or anything (if a person is open to that genre of music).  The problem is:  they were never given airplay in this country back in the Vietnam era, were never charted, and, basically, were totally unknown to the population that actually experienced the period (I confess I've never hear of these before).  So, they're not representative of the era.  Also, we play "a mix of pop, rock & R&B" here (along with a handful of Vietnam tribute songs recorded after the war).  I might think the theme from the movie "Walk on the Wildside" is just great (especially by comparison to that Lou Reed thing!  Razz) - or that Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" is just the coolest - but I would never expect them to be on the playlist here . . . and they were given airplay back in the day!  --Nor would I think the two Christmas soul tunes I posted in the "Christmas in Vietnam" thread would be appropriate for the regular rotation.  They're not representative.

What you have here is what was predominantly listened to on the radio and purchased on records by the Vietnam generation in this country (the USA) or "in country" (Vietnam), whether in uniform or not.

If you dig West Coast jazz of the 60s, might I suggest:  The station "Forever Cool" on Live365!   Cool

Might be because I have a dark side, might be because I am a California boy...but as poets go RR I will take Jim Morrison over Dylan. I think Dylan had great  stories don't get me wrong...there has always been something with his voice that just does not do it for me.

Hi Nix, with regards play list, I like some others I feel sure would like to find a few more to add, but would need to see the full play list to suggest any new songs, can we have access to the list ?

Regards

Sorry Dill, maybe I'm a bit superstitious about that but I don't divulge the entire track list.  It's my 11 herbs and spices. lol  Actually, there have been others that have brought up competitive Vietnam Era stations over the years after I feel I created something special and unique that's kept us where we're at with listeners and hours, so I'd rather just get feedback and suggestions. I'm always open to things and if I have it, I'll let you know and if not, I'll see what I can do with regards to getting it worked in. Wink  Hang in there with us, the revamped lists/AFVN promos/movie tracks will come in March.  We have a few special things planned in the next few months for music and authenticity. Smiley

Yes, Dylan's singing is an acquired taste, but not his song-writing.  More importantly, he is emblematic of the era - especially for anyone who was in college in that era, as I was (both before and after the Army).  My all-time favorite of his remains --

Nothing like good, rolling blues that carries you with it.

As one commenter put it --
I don't know exactly what it is -- and I can't explain it to people who -- don't "feel" his music. Either you get it or you don't. Mysterious.

-- RR

I have it pulled to add to the rotation. 

BTW, to all listeners, this is how the station grows.  I love all kinds of music and consider myself somewhat proficient in a lot of genres but I've learned SO much in 6 1/2 years that it's mind blowing considering it's been around for up to 45 or more years.  Lots of stuff that I've added are songs I hadn't heard, I didn't grow up in the era (was born in it) but I run into people all the time that talk about songs they remember well or areas of the country they grew up in that played this or that and share with me experiences or what songs or the music means to them and I do my best to work that in.  I worked with someone a few years ago for a few months that grew up listening to a lot of psychedelic stuff based around San Fran, and it was really interesting to hear the stories about the music he grew up listening to and loved.  That brought a new dose of that to the station of songs when I picked up a disc set he suggested and I added some songs he commented on and others that I liked.  It's where I discovered Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, which growing up in the 80's and rebuking anything 80's, Ted was a music God from the 70's for me but I never realized Journey to the Center of the Mind was him.  I heard the song before but didn't realize it was The Great Gonzo! hehe  So, to make a long story short, it's nice hearing what people love with regards to the era and some stories behind it.  I think that's what makes us unique and while it's a large part popular music with a big dose of diversity, it's also a nice dose of who our listeners are, without musical boundaries.  People suggest songs from that feedback button all the time and I learn more about the music.  I receive a lot of feedback from the feedback page on Live365 and I only wish I could get more to traverse here to share stories and I'm hoping that will happen more soon.
