THE BEST THREE HOURS OF '60S AM RADIO YOU WILL EVER HEAR! DAVE DIAMOND'S LAST "THE DIAMOND MINE" RADIO SHOW
The final night of KBLA - a local Burbank station. Dave Diamond had the distinction of being the final DJ to close out this innovative radio station! At midnight this station would become KBBQ, a C&W station. This night was loose and wild!
Includes the "Diamond Mine" intro as heard on Pebbles plus advertisements for local groups such as The Hamilton Streetcar playing at The Cheetah, Grateful Dead playing at The Hullabaloo Club, Dave Diamond's psychedelic poetry with sound effects, LONG tracks by The Rolling Stones, The Seeds and The Doors, plus some garage/psych gems most likely not played on other stations such as two tracks by The Rainy Daze, local news and weather!
The songs were Psych, R&B, C&W, POP, long, short, you name it!!!! This 3 hr. aircheck is one of the most requested and has remained in the Top 10 of collectors!
Excellent quality - this is not only a great listen but an essential peek at radio and populuar culture changing by the moment. Until they build an actual working time machine, this three straight hours of radio - advertisements, news and all is all you will need for a trip back in tyme!!
