Classic Rock & Psychedelia — 1960s-70s

Today we’ll be begin­ning our new series, Zee­ber Gold, from ZBS Foun­da­tion, fea­tur­ing inter­views with the movers and shak­ers, artists and musi­cians of the ear­ly 1970s.

Zee­ber Gold: Joseph Camp­bell

The first pro­gramme in the series airs at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 GMT) and fea­tures Irish Amer­i­can mythol­o­gist, writer and lec­tur­er Joseph Camp­bell (1904 – 1987), best known for his work in com­par­a­tive mythol­o­gy and reli­gion.

In hon­our of the launch of Zee­ber Gold,  we are break­ing with tra­di­tion a lit­tle and today pre­sent­ing a pro­gramme of clas­sic 1960s and 1970s rock music from both sides of the Atlantic (although it might be just a lit­tle bit biased towards the UK) on Radio Riel’s Main Stream.

In par­tic­u­lar, giv­en the nature of the Zee­ber Gold series, we’re includ­ing as many “mind expand­ing” pieces as we can find, from the Small Faces’ Itchy­coo Park and the Bea­t­les’ Straw­ber­ry Fields to less­er-known items like excerpts from Dutch band Ekseption’s con­cept album Beg­gar Julia’s Time Trip. With any luck there will be some bands you’ve nev­er heard of along­side the clas­sics. Quater­mass any­one?

We’re kick­ing off by play­ing in full the piece of music that we’re using to intro­duce the Zee­ber Gold series: Rain­bows In My Head (instru­men­tal ver­sion) by Richard Myhill.

As the man says: Turn on, tune in, and enjoy!
