The History Of Funk

The History Of Funk – January 31, 2014 at 10:00pm

this episode is no longer available


This 5 hour edition is largely taken up with the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service, one of my faves from the 60’s San Francisco music scene, and rarely emphasized among the pantheon of San Francisco groups of that day. So here they are, in all their glory, alternate versions, and outakes, but mostly in live performances. Later in the show, we return to “Another UFO” for some unbelievable tales of encounters from UFO icons like Adamski and Van Tassel, which occurred (or didn’t) in the 60’s.

5 Hours.
