Comments: Hi Carl. I'm curious if you might have info about this. You posted an article about "The Exports" out of Illinois back in the 60's. playing drums for the band and showed us a couple photos of him in the band. I didn't grow up with him, but saw him occasionally so I have limited info, but I was wondering if you know anything about him being in this band? My daughter is really into playing music and singing now and I thought it would be neat for her to know about any history of music in her family. Thanks for any info you have, otherwise have a great weekend!!
Admin reply: Thank you for your comment. John Timmons, the author, nor I have anymore information on the drummer. Sorry we can't help you.

Comments: Hi, Carl! Just listening to Neal's Feb. show and was very surprised AND pleased to hear the Kingston Trio's original version of "Greenback Dollar". In SW Ohio, like most of the country, we got the sanitized version where the word "damn" was omitted and only music played for that interval of time. It was only 2 years before that that the FCC and Newton Minnow did the same to the sausage king's (Jimmy Dean) #1 hit "Big Bad John", where at the end they changed "one hell of a man" to "a big, big man". It was just too risque for our tender teen ears. Enjoy the labor of love you and Neal do! Be safe.
Admin reply: Enjoyed your comments Jay. You are actually right. That is very tame and utterly ridiculous by today's standards.

Comments: Great site. I was born in 1948.. Brought back many fond memories. We are planning our 50 year class reunion. Anybody have any ideas. This site has some really good ideas.. Any new ones.. Thank you ..Larry
Admin reply: Thank you Larry for stopping by. Have fun at your reunion. Karaoke singing the oldies with groups of classmates really adds to the fun. That way nobody is too shy to get up if they are they are up there singing in front with a group. We did it at my 50th and it turned out to be lots of fun with laughter.

Comments: Great site! I've been collecting hippie/psychedelic artifacts since 1967 and still love this stuff as much as I did when it was all new. What a great time to be young the 60s was. It truly was magical even though it was not all peace and love. Anyone know of any Summer of Love celebrations planned this year in the Chicago area?
Admin reply: Thank you Fritz.

Comments: Great site man! I was born in 1956 and grew up in the 60's! Missed Woodstock, but dig and dug all the things you're talking about on your site. Many thanks for putting these great song lists together. I play the tenor banjo and guitar and I'm creating a program of 60's music to play for seniors in nursing homes and assisted living places. Thanks again for your work on this incredible website. It's great help. Peace and Love my brother.
Admin reply: Thanks for stopping by Ed. Also a great gesture for you take the time to visit assisted living and provide them so entertainment.

Comments: Trying to find a HARD rock/acid rock song from the era, lots of fuzz guitar, IIRC first verse was: You-ou--are my col-or blu-ue--when I look at you-ou--all I see is blue****(fuzz).
